Fugger: Felicity Jones

Oscar Post-Party Fugs and Fabs: Stars Who Changed Clothes


It happens every year: We line up our posts for the day after the big ceremony, only to find out half the people we’ve already featured had another outfit on tap for the after-parties. There are a lot of tired stylists in Hollywood today, to go along with all the weary bloggers.

Oscars Fug or Fab: Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen


This dress was a different color in nearly every shot that I saw. I THINK it was a silver, but in certain shots it almost looks lavender. I think I wish it WERE lavender. As it is, while I adore the princess aspect of it — why not go big for the Oscars?! — something about the neckline didn’t totally gel for me. Let’s DISCUSS.

BAFTAs Fug or Fab: Felicity Jones in Dior


Damn it, getting to stand that close to Becks is a prize in and of itself.

Fug or Fab: Felicity Jones in Prada


The people behind The Theory of Everything are REALLY working for those Oscars votes: Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne are hitting approximately 76% more red carpets than usual. On the other hand, that’s giving us more to eyeball, so I can’t really complain:

AARP 14th Annual "Movies For Grownups" Awards Gala

I don’t think I’m going to complain about this that much, either. Sure, it looks a little bit like she’s accidentally tacked a black tablecloth to the front of her dress, but at least the dress is black too. If someone accidentally shows up wearing part of a tablecloth, you have to give her points for coordination! I also like the idea that she’s taking her Period Piece Face through a variety of periods. Over the weekend, it was the 1880s. today it’s like 1955. I really REALLY hope this means that her next outing has her go FULL 80S on us.

The Theory of Fugrything: Felicity Jones in Dior at the Oscar Nominee Luncheon


These are two flavors that don’t mesh.

The context of this outfit was Dior’s first-ever pre-fall show, staged in Japan, with fake snow falling from the rafters. In that context, and with boots, this didn’t seem so strange. But today it looks like she’s about to rip off the tearaway bib dress to reveal a sparkling sporty leotard with “49″ on it in blocky jersey print, before breaking into a special song called “The Theory of Coaching” all about whose fault it was that the Seahawks lost, and whether Pete Carroll was right, and whether Bill Belichick should have called a timeout (then let the Seahawks score, and given the ball back to Brady to win the game with as much time on the clock as possible). There will be a LOT of jazz hands and rhyming of “Gisele” with “OH HELL,” and I guess “Pete Carroll” with “imperil” and “cat so feral” and “chug a beer barrel” and “Flynn-comma-Errol,” because those are basically the most sensible options. And everyone at the nominee luncheon will clap politely and then begin discussing when Meryl Streep will be cast as Felicity Jones in the movie of that whole weird event.

In short, she should’ve saved the dress for warm weather.

Well Played, Felicity Jones in Erdem


It cracks me up that this photo was snapped right in front of the guest check-in for this event. She’s just trying to get in to the open bar, you guys!

19th Annual Art Directors Guild Excellence In Production Design

Real talk: I feel like this dress could have gone SOOOOOOO very wrong. It’s one of those patterns that makes me think, “ooh, I’d love that as wallpaper in my breakfast room!” (I don’t have a breakfast room.) And sometimes a woman just cannot pull off a Wallpaper Dress. There are a lot of actresses on whom this would have looked totally ridiculous: Jennifer Lawrence, for example, would like like she was being straggled by her grandmother’s country house in this. But something about Felicity’s Period Piece Face makes it work for me. (It helps that she rarely wears a pattern, and I’m always predisposed to one.) High degree of difficulty: Full marks.
