Fugger: Jaimie Alexander

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.)

TCA Fugs and Fabs: NBC/Universal

Oh my god TCA will never end. I love TV too but you have got to get a grip. (In fairness, I believe the final events are happening today, and then all our TV critic friends will — I HOPE — get to take a long nap and have a giant cocktails.)

In other news, Sawyer from Lost might be in disguise as Chandler Bing.

Fugs and Fabs: The People/EW Upfronts Party

I SWEAR I wrote an intro to this post, but only now, 12 hours after it published, did I check and notice that nothing was written here. WELL DONE. Is my brain cramping?

Fugs and Fabs: The NBC Upfronts

Can we talk about the fact that NBC renewed Mysteries of Laura? Although…perhaps I should not complain about something that sets Debra Messing onto red carpets on the regular.

Catch-up Fuggerday: Things We Missed Because Of Cannes

Orange Is The New Black had a premiere party. So did The Normal Heart. People wore stuff, and more importantly: Matt Bomer and Tim Riggins. Venture in with us.
