Fugger: Julianne Moore

Fugs and Fabs: The Gotham Film Awards

All hail SWINTON. (And you should probably read this GQ profile of her, anointing her their Woman of the Year. First off, it’s extremely SWINTON-y and wonderful, and second, the fact that GQ has named TS and not, say, Kate Upton as their Woman of the Year pleases me. [No offense to Kate Upton.]) Beyond SWINTON, I’ve also got some Hamm for you here, so Gyllenhaal, some Tomei, a bit of Moore…a VARIETY of celebs. Join me in judgement.

Fug or Fine: Julianne Moore

I am unmoved.

I was going to go on about the bottom, and how it reminds me of the heartbreak of pulling a cassette tape out of your stereo and realizing it’s caught and rapidly unspooling, and NOOOO, it’s the only copy I have of that Richard Marx song I taped off the radio WHY GOD WHY, oh wait if I just spend five minutes winding this sucker it might work again.

But then I realized the rest of it doesn’t inspire me that much either. I think the bodice is designed to droop a little, and it’s having the same effect on my mood. You know what would’ve helped? My old “I’m Too Sexy” cassingle, which had the song in Spanish on the B-side. Just TRY being in a funk when Right Said Fred gives you the sweet talk in a second language.

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Julianne Moore vs Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton

Julianne here is getting raves for Still Alice, which delights me because I used to work for one of the directors, and he and his husband — they did this movie jointly — are wonderful people and I really want them to clean up with some bigtime hardware.

I also like this so much more than some of the more elaborate bags she puts herself in — partly because she herself is aging SO RIDICULOUSLY WELL that I like seeing her in something with a youthful bent. It’s not too short on her, like Jennifer Connelly’s first look (what a difference mere inches can make), or potentially her second. I generally don’t go for patterned tights, but these seem to complement the whole thing very well. And her booties seem to have the right level of personality to play harmoniously with everything.

You can see the texture and detail of the dress itself — and the shoes — a bit better from this side angle:

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the Mockingjay Premiere

Let it not be said that people didn’t bring it to this premiere. Some of what “it” was, of course, is THE CRAZY.


Fug or Fab: Julianne Moore in Rodarte

JUST the other day, I was wondering who actually wears Rodarte. Thank you for answering my question, Ms Moore:

"Maps To The Stars" Premiere - 52nd New York Film Festival

This is from the (amazing) Star Wars collection, and while I am distressed that she didn’t wear the dress with Luke Skywalker’s face on it, this probably IS the most conventional option, even if it does kind of look two curtains from the inside of Madame Cappuccino’s Psychic Coffeehouse whipped together in a fit of DIY.

Toronto Film Festival Fugs and Fabs: Julianne Moore and Kate Bosworth

Just when I think Julianne Moore might be entering Noted Crackpot territory, she (sort of) pulls it together.
