Fugger: Joan Collins

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the Celebs at the Michael Kors Collection Dinner

You saw Gwyneth and Solange. Now, here’s everyone else, including, but not limited to, JOAN FLIPPING COLLINS. (Most of them look pretty darn good, I have to admit.)

Royals Round-Up, May 20th, 2016

Ooooh, you guys. In addition to a new event from Kate — at which she wore one of my favorite McQueens — QE2 opened Parliament this week, so prepare yourself for SOME CROWNS. Also in this week’s round-up: more Sophie Wessex than usual, extra pics from the Queen’s 90th shindig on Sunday, Wills throwing a mean left hook, national costumes, hats, and JOAN COLLINS!

Here at GFY earlier in the week, we covered Kate’s bizarro look at Sunday’s hoedown, and her super cute skirt the next day.

As a programming note, Wills and Kate (and maybe Harry? I’m unclear) are popping out to the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday, so make sure you pop back over the week and check it out.

Around the horn:

– Our friends at Duchess Diary rounded up 37 of their favorite hats of Queen Maxima

The Court Jeweller covered a recent tiara auction. I hope one of the winning bidders lives among us, Fug Nation. I really want the last one. I better save my pennies.

– Over at People, Wills gave some insight on what’s happening at home (George is loud and they’re trying to figure out schools).

– At Hello! a salute to Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary’s wedding, which was 12 years ago this week. Queen Margrethe looks WACKY.

— Also at Hello! Mike Tindall talks about how Mia came to be holding QE2′s handbag in the Queen’s birthday portraits.

And, after the jump, we have LOADS of social media stuff this week. (Sometimes, social media gets better snaps than I do. I would never want to deprive you; if you click on the embedded tweet, it should let you flip through the photos.)

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: The Lightbox Purge

In other words, here’s EVERYONE ELSE.


Well Played: The Bond Women at the London Spectre Premiere

This premiere brought out the best in people. I hope it’s not just The Royal Boost — stylists working overtime knowing there would be Windsors in attendance – and that this won’t devolve into madness at the next ones. Although… I do love madness.

Royals Round-Up, June 5th, 2015

Oh, this is one juicy Royals Round-Up! I bring you SO MUCH polo, plus TIARAS! And bums! A VERY chic Letizia. And JOAN COLLINS. All that being said: Although Maxima and W-A are here in the US currently,  they haven’t been well-covered by US media — Getty Images, our primary photo provider (and, by far, the largest one in the world) didn’t seem to send out a photographer, so I have very few shots of them, unfortunately. I’m bringing you what I’ve got, though, and they will be well covered in the links. I know some of you saw her/shook her hand/attended some of their events, so please give us the scoop in the comments!

A reminder: We’re appearing at the Printer’s Row Lit Fest tomorrow — Saturday –at 1pm,  chatting with Elizabeth Fenner, Editor-in-Chief of Chicago Magazine.  Tickets are required for all parts of the event, even the signing (contrary to earlier intel; we hugely apologize for any confusion) and they are $2. You can buy them here, although they may be sold out at this point: https://www.tribtix.com/e/printers-row-lit-fest-pass-event-go-fug/tickets   That said: no-show seats become first-come, first-served, 15 minutes prior to the chat beginning, so if you find yourself in the area at 12:45 with some time to kill, pop on by and see what happens! We can’t wait to meet you!

Royals Round-Up, March 27th, 2015

We had an outing from Kate and Wills earlier today, which you can find in all its glory here. But that doesn’t mean this post isn’t full of STUFF. We’ve got everything from dead kings interred somewhere more appropriate than a car park to Harry at a rugby match to Maxima very seriously painting a wall to Eggs Benedict Cucumber Sandwich to Joan Collins.

Elsewhere on GFY, if you haven’t entered our final giveaway of The Royal We, you must! The contest is open to everyone, and in addition to a signed copy of The Royal We, we are giving away all kinds of goodies.
