Fugger: Helena Bonham Carter

Fugs and Fabs: Dramatic Arts Reception At Buckingham Palace


You can espy what Kate wore — and her chatting with a variety of these folks here. The subtext of everyone’s wardrobe is, “OMG I CAN’T LOOK SLUTTY IN FRONT OF THE QUEEN.” Everyone is totes apropos. Although Helena Bonham Carter looks like Eliza Doolittle’s before pictures, that probably IS totes apropos for HER at Buckingham Palace. Additionally, considering that Ralph Fiennes was ALSO in attendance, do you think anyone got drunk and sidled over to him and said, “LET’S GO TALK TO BELLATRIX, YOU WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED.”

Well Replayed, Kate Middleton


JOAN COLLINS IS INVOLVED. I’m pretty sure you guys understand what this means to me. It’s the best thing ever. Kate appears to be having a really good time, too. I can only imagine she asked her for tips in case there comes a time when she needs to throw a drink in William’s face.

Well Played Cover, Helena Bonham Carter


On one hand, I’m not sure that her face looks like this anymore — who can tell, given that she’s usually buried under various expensive eccentricities? — but it certainly COULD, and, frankly, she looks fantastic here, so let’s just decide it’s accurate and give three cheers for its fabulousness.  I feel like this top-knot/feathers/strong brows/red lips combination is what US Vogue was trying to do with Sienna Miller on the cover that was chronicled in The September Issue except, you know, this cover is actually good. (Re-reading that post, it kind of cracks me up that I complain about Sienna’s hair so much in it, when of course there is this whole running theme in the movie [which is excellent, if by some chance you haven't seen it] about how Sienna’s hair looks bad and yet she will not wear a wig WHAT TO DO???) Keep up the strong work, British Vogue.

Golden Globes Fug Carpet: The Black Lace Brigade


This is actually not just lace, but also transparencies; sadly that wasn’t as kicky-sounding. Also: The Widow Longoria is BACK. And she’s PROWLING.

Fugloween 2012


Here are two things I’ve learned from doing postings this Halloween: 1) I am pretty sure Chris Brown’s costume is going to make your head explode, and b) I’d best not even try to ID most of these costume for fear of angering Fug Nation when I get it wrong. Some folks are REALLY disgusted that I happen not to have seen Moonlight Kingdom. It’s like I personally knifed them, just because I can’t watch or get to the movies as much as I’d like. Please forgive, Fug Nation. I hate it when we fight. At LEAST wait until I can acquire and don some leggings as pants, so that your disappointment can be complete.

Well Played, HBC and Tim Burton


Aw, look how nice these two look together.

See? It doesn’t ALWAYS have to be turned up to eleven. Sometimes a volume of seven or eight does the job beautifully, and with less collateral damage.
