Fugger: Hilary Swank

Cannes Fugs and Fabs: Hilary Swank in Versace and Bottega Veneta

I am generally lukewarm on The Hilary Swank Experience. So it will not surprise you that my feelings about these outfits are a grunting, ladylike blend of meh and feh and huh.

Fugs and Fabs: The Michael Kors Jet Set Experience, Shanghai

The fact that this is called THE MICHAEL KORS JET SET EXPERIENCE just delights me. That sounds like it ought to be a ride at Disneyland. Instead of 3D glasses, they give you sunglasses and a spray tan and then you get to wear pretty dresses and have Kors squeal at you that you look like a brioche. I’d ride it 100 times. Also — not surprisingly, given that this event was in Shanghai, many Chinese actresses with whom I am not that familiar attended. If you have good scoop about any of them, OBVIOUSLY unload in the comments.

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at Milan Fashion Week

Not as many celebs came to Milan as they did New York or London — I suspect more celebrities just happen to live in New York and London to begin with — but Paris kicks off today and I suspect there will be one last gasp of A-listers before everyone has to turn around and pop back here for the Oscars. I am tired just thinking about it, but I’m sure first class travel helps.

Fugs and Fabs: Armani “One Night Only New York”

She really should’ve buttoned that coat.

Well Played, Hilary Swank

I don’t know what Hilary Swank is doing today…

…but I hope it involves writing Michael Kors a thank you note for this little number.

Fug or Fab: Hilary Swank

What is the deal with Hilary Swank? She seems to have lost some momentum. Her last movie was New Year’s Eve, and of the four future credits she’s got on IMDb, one is a TV movie about malaria, and two are actually the same project under different titles (the third is a Tommy Lee Jones-directed joint about a pioneer woman helping escort insane ladies out of Nebraska, though, which sounds about right). My concern is that she’s become one of those people who chiefly gets paid to go places because they want to be able to use the words “Academy Award winner” without paying actual A-list prices. Here, she’s at the Vienna Lifeball, which is an awesome charity event supporting HIV/AIDS organizations. But it was a very eclectic guest list — Kelly Osbourne, Fergie, Carmen Electra, Elton John, and Barbara Eden were top-liners — and the presence of Hilary Swank seems sort of random, and it makes me want someone in Hollywood to donate his/her better Rolodex to this gala.

Clothing-wise, she’s also up to her old tricks of things seeming just not quite right: The legs are great and I like the shoes, but the dress is a hair too short and looks strange with the belt — like perhaps it wasn’t meant to be cinched at all — and the whole vibe is as if she told her stylist, “I want to look like a cross between a Kardashian and Kristen Stewart.”

What do you think?
