Fugger: Hilary Swank

Hollywood Film Awards Fug or Fab: Hilary Swank in Nicholas Oakwell Couture

YOU GUYS. I think she’s wearing a something that’s, at best, scrunchie-adjacent. I know I’ve complained about her styling lately, but now I’m getting really worried that maybe her hairdresser is in on whatever Evil Plan is afoot within Team Swank.

Well Played, Hilary Swank in Elie Saab

I decided earlier in this week that I am in a fight with whoever is making the clothing decisions for Hilary Swank, be it Swank herself, or someone on Team Swank. But we have briefly made up, thanks to this:

Stars arrive at the 2014 Outfest Legacy Awards

Elie Saab apparently solves almost everything. Yes, this is sort of the Understated But Secretly Gorgeous Librarian Cousin to the  OTT Elie Saab that Elizabeth Banks stunned in, earlier this week, but I’m very fond of librarians. They answer your questions, and they give you books, and they are skilled at dealing patiently with weirdos.  What’s not to like? EXACTLY.

Fugs and Fabs: The Premiere of The Homesman

In which several questions are answered, like “What is Hilary Swank doing PR for so much, lately?” (this) and “is Hailee Steinfeld SO pretty?” (yes, she is) and “Would Meryl Streep’s kid ever wear a weird slip out of the house?” (oh my yes) and also, “Miranda Otto, does she age?” (apparently not).

Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else at the AMPAS Governors’ Awards

Prepare yourself. This is not some slideshow full of randoms, that you read on the train and are all, “ugh, I forgot the mobile version of GFY doesn’t show me the titles of these slides. Who is THIS random shitshow?!” No. You will recognize ALMOST ALL of these people because the Academy doesn’t invite you to pre-awards season parties unless they think you might be invited to an actual awards season party. Which means: AT LEAST B+ List. Let’s dig in.

Well Played, Hilary Swank in Peter Pilotto

If this looks familiar to you, it’s probably because we saw the pink and red version on Vera Farmiga recently:

Leaving aside the huge issue of Whatever Happened To Hilary Swank? Can We Really Blame Her Career Tanking On That Time She Went to a Dictator’s Birthday Party? which floats through my brain literally every single time I see her (I am obsessed with what happened to her, and I don’t entirely know why), she looks good in this. She looks ready to stroll into some power actresses luncheon hosted by Variety and held at the Beverly Hilton and hold her own in a chat with Reese Witherspoon about the best jams in Ojai, and whether dating/marrying your agent is great multi-tasking or just ends with you having to go to a LOT more boring parties, and how early is too early to call a production meeting when you’re a Super Sleeper who only needs four hours. And that’s a start.

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.
