Fugger: Jaimie Alexander

Fugs and Fabs: Celebrities at New York Fashion Week, Part 2


And Taylor has re-emerged. It’s the first time we’ve seen her at an event after the Kimye scandal and the implosion of Hiddleswift, and what a well-chosen one it was: At the Tommy Hilfiger show, she would have been able to control whether or not she spoke to any media (and if so, which ones), and likely entered and exited flanked by security. Every photo would be about her playing the role of smiling, happy, supportive bestie to Gigi Hadid, who walked in the show and debuted a capsule collection with Tommy. Tay even sang along to that Calvin Harris song she supposedly co-wrote in secret, so she comes off like a great sport, and generates chipper headlines without having to say a word to any reporters. I’m not saying these aren’t necessarily sincere things she’s doing — Taylor may well have wanted to be there for her friend, and might be super proud of that song. It can be all of those things and more, but it can ALSO simultaneously be really useful and helpful and convenient to her PR needs. That’s why you pay your team the big bucks.

After the jump, we embedded a couple Instas and tweets from our past few days at New York Fashion Week, in case you’re curious.

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.

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?
