Fugger: Gillian Anderson

Your Afternoon X-Files


They’ve started filming the new episode of The X-Files in Vancouver, and I thought you might want to be reminded of what Scully’s Skeptical Face looks like. Let’s also talk about her outfit (it’s good) and what we think is happening in this episode (with bonus appearance from Joel McHale), and the fact that I can’t believe this is happening again. Also, “I can’t believe this is happening again” seems like a decent tagline to replace “trust no one” if Chris Carter wants one. (Also, thank god my TWoP recaps of The X-Files are online at Brilliant But Cancelled because (a) I’m probably going to want to reference them when I recap the new episodes here and (b) OMG I really don’t remember ANY of the myth-arc anymore, so I’m also going to have to re-read them to remember what the hell even happened the last time we saw these yahoos.)

Glamour Woman of the Year Fug or Fab: Gillian Anderson


I love Gillian Anderson — AND CANNOT WAIT for her to go back to her Scully Red Hair. I KNOW it’s a pain for her and it also probably increases the chances of her being recognized exponentially but what about WHAT I WANT? — and I love a cape. HOWEVER:

Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

I have doubts. Did we ever come up with phrase to note that a dress Probably Looks Better In Person? Because I think it’s fully possible that this is a vintage Hollywood goddess gown if you’re in the room with her, and the mere in-person sight of it will make you want to steal it from her so that you can wear it whilst brushing your hair at a vanity with a silver-backed brush. But in photos, it might slightly slide into Mustyville? (And might, just might, be featuring a cameo from her nipple, but I started to weird myself by spending too much time trying to figure that out for real, and just went and got a sandwich instead.) But in person, truly, it might be magnificent. At the very least, I want to believe.

Fugs and Fabs: The FOX Upfronts


The big news is, of course, American Idol being put to death. They had better get Simon back for one episode or else that’s a total waste of an exit. And The X-Files will be back in January for its six-episode limited run, and apparently Scully will have blonde hair in it [WAIT I misunderstood! It was just a picture of the two of them so it might just be her Hannibal hair and not a creative choice. HOWEVER, the rest stands] I know Jessica will have ALL of the feelings about that, but I firmly believe Dana Scully as a redhead is part of the canon and I am not sure I will accept any alternatives. Perhaps at the end of the first hour, Scully can show up at Mulder’s door with a fresh dye job and be like, “Are you RED-y to rumble?” Yes.

In which I guess the dress code was “SEXY WIDOW.”

BAFTAs Fug or Fab: Gillian Anderson


She got out a lot this weekend for the BAFTAs. The first dress is vintage Balmain and I’ve sat with it for a while now and I’ve decided that the dress is interesting, but needs careful styling and the right woman to wear it, and this is not that careful styling, nor perhaps the right woman. Let’s take a closer look, both at this, and a very boob-tacular frock from the pre-party.
