Fugger: Jaimie Alexander

More Assorted Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of Comic-Con

Comic-Con itself looks like a crowded cluster of a nightmare to me, but BLESS ITS HEART for providing a full weekend’s worth of outfits in the dead of summer.

Have you ever been curious what it looks like when a clown and a pirate have an orgy? Well, wonder no more.

Fugs and Fabs of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic: The Patterns

Pretty summer dresses, I love you the most. Okay, the second most. I love Michael B Jordan the most most. Then dresses.

Fugs and Fabs: NBC’s Upfront Presentations

Believe it or not, I think all the NBC/Universal stars looked better at this daytime event — the likes of which is usually confusing for people in terms of dress code — than they did at the previous night’s party. How is that? Could we give credit to the fact that this event brought out all the bright colors and good shoes? Regardless, prepare yourselves, because there are some cute day dresses in here.

Fugs or Fines or Fabs: Jaimie Alexander’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner Weekend

Well, none of it’s as interesting as that green Golden Globes gown, but we can’t have everything.

Golden Globes Well Played: Jaimie Alexander in Genny

I am basically in raptures over this funky green pattern.

And yes, that is one seriously deep vee, but isn’t shocking or tawdry or overexposed to me — for one, even with all that skin, very little is hanging out; for another, the dress earns that plunge with its artistry everywhere else (although I could have done without the pockets for her to jam her hands into, even though she’s making THAT work for her also). I Googled the line, because I’d not heard of it, and it turns out it was founded in 1961 and, in the ’70s, had a diffusion line of sorts that which Gianni Versace ran, and at which Christian Lacroix also worked. Prada bought it in 2001, shuttered it in 2004, and  then sold it in 2011 to a group that relaunched it. Jaimie is the first person I can remember in this brand, and she might put it back on the map. Between that Armani at the Emmys and this… way to set that bar high, Jaimie. Hard to believe she was an early pioneer of The Naked Dress, eh?

Emmy Awards Well Played: Jaimie Alexander in Armani Prive

This dress may prove to be divisive. Personally, I loved it:

67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Stripes + sleeves + sequins = goodness, in my book. (Although she may have been ready to pass out, given how hot and humid it was on the red carpet yesterday.) It’s also a huge vote of confidence in Jaimie Alexander as a celebrity that Armani Prive gave her a dress that hasn’t even gone down the runway yet. Like, that is a GET, a real A-List score, and however that was finagled: WELL DONE TEAM JAIMIE.

Additionally, because I always like to tell you guys these things: I interviewed her at Fashion Week once, and she was A COMPLETE DELIGHT, and probably one of the nicest interviews I’ve done. So, mark that in your diary. (You know who else was great this past Fashion Week, who I may not get to mention here on GFY and should just shove in here? HODA. You guys, Hoda Kotb is — unsurprisingly — the best person.)
