Fugger: Gwen Stefani

Well Played From The Neck Down, Gwen Stefani


I’m batting cleanup on Cannes a little, and couldn’t let this Gwen Stefani outfit pass without judgment.

It is Armani Prive, and although it’s very striking, I keep hoping, say, Victoria Beckham will show up in the exact same dress and then the two of them will have extreme tantrums for about an hour including commercial breaks. Of course, since V.Becks is pregnant, that shoots to hell the story where she loses her virginity in a hotel room shortly thereafter. I am pretty sure it was not an immaculate conception, because have you SEEN her husband?

Anyway, back to Gwen. Aside from the echoes of 90210 glory, and maybe even slightly because of, I rather like this on her. I appreciate that it’s got a twist to it but manages still to be less busy than some of what she likes to do — before Cannes, it had been a while since she showed up wearing gowns, and it’s interesting to see how she’s metamorphosed since her last mega media blitz. The back is also lovely in its simplicity:

But we have got to talk about her makeup.

amfUG and amFABs, WITH BONUS KANYE


This amfAR event already brought us Karl and Courtney together at last, and Mischa Barton looking stunning after her near-victory in Fug Madness 2011. It seemed egregious not to let the evening’s other delights enfold you in their arms and whisper you sweet nothings, or alternatively, nothing sweet. I mean, Gwen, what ARE you doing with your groin?

Who Fugged It More (Or Less): Gwen Stefani vs. Iman


When I tell you Stella McCartney designed this, even if you don’t have a photographic memory for her stuff, you are going to say, “Of course she did.”

Because every time there is something sort of cracky and square with an element of transparency, Stella McCartney ends up being the one who was behind it — ┬ájust like how every time somebody shows up like they are a caterpillar trapped in a cocoon of tulle, it’s a Marchesa.

And with Stella, it goes double if the outfit in question scrolls down and ends in pants.

Gwen looks so thoughtful:

And what she’s thinking is, “WHY AM I WEARING THESE PANTS?”

“Ahh, I remember the 90s,” Gwen Stefani thought.

“Of course, they’re hard to forget when you’re married to them. Er, I mean, wearing them. Freudian slip.”

Fug or Fab: Gwen Stefani


I suspect is one of those outfits where, if Shenae Grimes was wearing it, I would LET HER HAVE IT. (Sorry, Shenae.)

But Gwen is one of those people who gets away with things other people can’t get away with. Often. In general. On occasion. Not necessarily here? From the neck up, I am SOLD. From the neck down, I am…Sale Pending?

I don't even know. You tell me what to think.
