Fugger: Florence Welch

Met Ball Well Playeds and Hmms and Zzzs: More Celebs Who Look Perfectly Fine, Mostly, But Also Seriously Could Be Absolutely Anywhere Else


So, there is acreage between “catering to your dramatic whims” and “looking like a crazypants naked and/or upholstered crackpot,” and the whole point of the Met Ball is the former, even if you fall on your face doing it (which leads to the latter, and outfits like that are exactly why Anna’s annual gala is such a hilarious good time and must never, ever change, even when we get capsy over people’s insane choices). Don’t we think it’s about time, say, Renee Zellweger had some semblance of a dramatic whim again? She is operating at a severe dramatic whimsy deficit. Her last one was Kenny Chesney, I think, and although that didn’t turn out so well for her, it was a VERY exciting time for all of us looky-loos. ALWAYS THINK OF THE LOOKY-LOOS. If we’re stuck with a stupid term like that to describe what we’re doing, then at least please make sure we’re having fun doing it.

And here’s a whole bunch of other people, some of whom look amazing and others who SINCERELY DO NOT.

Fugs and Fabs: The Gatsby/Prada Party


I fear the Gatsby movie will never come out and then when it does, it may never leave. It’s like we’ve been living in an endless cycle of Gatsby promotion for the last 17 years of our collective lives.  I have been so worn down that I can’t even launch into my usual diatribe about how GATSBY OF ALL THINGS SHOULD NOT BE IN 3D ARGH NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE IN 3D DON’T YOU GET THAT THE BOOK WAS REALLY NOT THAT POSITIVE ON THE SUBJECT OF VERY KIND OF OTT RIDICULOUSNESS THAT HAS LED TO ENDLESS 3D IN THE FIRST PLACE MAKE IT STOP.

NME Awards Fug Carpet: Florence Welch


On one hand, I love Florence Welch, and I’d never want to see her Florence Welch-ness extinguished. She SHOULD wear the colorful and the wacky and the off-kilter, because it’s her — and she’s never tacky, even when she looks extreme.

But I would never wish a bandeau bra/tulle top ON ANYONE. In fact, this might actually just be a bra-top (I can’t tell if those are straps hanging down, or a matching trim on her “sleeves”), but I assure you, that doesn’t make it better. The Dog Days are supposed to be OVER, Florence! Get with your own program!

Grammy Awards Well Played, Florence Welch


Florence here seemed STOKED to lose to Kelly Clarkson last night, and that was very endearing. Anyone who loves Kelly is okay by me — and, frankly, are there two women singing today who create better Belt It Out In The Car Music than the two of them? NO. And I feel like “Stronger” and “Shake It Off” are probably two extremely strong entries on the all-time list of Songs Best Suited to Go On a Break-Up Mix, along with “Single Ladies” and “We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together” and “I Will Survive” and “Cry Me a River” and so on and so forth. So it’s likewise good news that she looked pretty awesome:

You know our feelings about a redhead in green AND sequins AND, sure, she has spikes on her arms like a dinosaur, but what you might not know is that we ALSO like dinosaurs.

Fugrence Welch


Have you been wondering what Florence Welch is doing on-stage lately? Yes/no/maybe? Well, regardless of which one you circle before you pass back the note, I will let you know, because I am here for you.

The answer is: fewer caftans, more pseudo-shin hair, and a full-body fishnet — like she’s a FRAGIIIIIILE leg lamp that skipped a date with the waxer.
