Fugger: Jessica Lange

Golden Globes Fug and Fabs: The Women of “American Horror Story: Coven”


Jessica Lange, you saucy minx. You thought you snuck into the ballroom without the Getty photogs nabbing you, but I will not be denied in my attempts to look at your dress. PS: it’s great, so you really should have stayed outside longer for pictures. PPS: The rest of you look pretty good too, especially Emma Roberts, who may have never looked better.

Fugs and Fabs: The Premiere of American Horror Story: Coven


I quit American Horror Story midway through last season — I just couldn’t take how OTT it was, like, come on Ryan Murphy — but now that I know this upcoming season is all about witches, I might be back. I cannot resist Witch Academy in any format, you guys! And some of the people at the premiere looked as if someone put a spell on them, so that’s appropriately thematic. A good witch, or a bad witch — you’ll have to decide that yourself.

Golden Globes Well Played: Jessica Lange


There’s something delicious about the fact that Jessica Lange has basically become Ryan Murphy’s muse, and that he will write all manner of weird things for her to do and say, and she will do them and say them as if it’s the most natural thing. I feel like he puts so much energy into her characters on American Horror Story that it explains why the rest of the show tends to fall apart around her into a steaming, but somehow totally watchable, mess. (I say this despite being several episodes behind on the current one, so maybe my theory no longer holds water.) But can you blame him for wanting to give her nice things?

I love this dress. She is staring at us, like, “I know you want to. I know you are desperate to say, ‘Man, talk about an American horror story,’ and so instead I look fantastic and you will never get your chance.” Fair enough, Jessica, and besides, I should thank you for saving me from Hackytown. You KNOW I’m always about two dollars away from buying land there.

Fugs and Fabs: The American Horror Story: Asylum Premiere


I’m impossibly excited for this to return, and will be very disappointed if it isn’t openly deranged; totally uneven, to the point where it’s both awful and amazing within the same hour; full of Jessica Lange and Chloe Sevigny going toe-to-toe on-screen, because they are two people who can turn pretty much any script into watchable TV. In fact, I like to think the Sev’s dress here is illustrative of the Ryan Murphy oeuvre: Compulsively watchable even when it might be a train wreck.
