Fugger: Julianne Moore

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Fine or Fab: Julianne Moore in Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent always looks phoned in to me — like once they lost the Yves, they also lost the will to live — but this isn’t….I mean. It’s….I can’t even muster up the oomph to finish the sentence. IT’S FINE. THERE. Two words. Seven letters. One sweet apostrophe. I did it:

The 20th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood

But FINE is probably exactly right when you won a Golden Globe on Sunday and you know that this — an event at which she also won — is just a pit stop on the commute to Oscarville. You have to leave something in the tank for the last ten miles of the journey, after all. (Maybe take a detour around the Sheer Bib Portion of the drive next time, though. It’s so unsightly and traffic is terrible.)

Golden Globes Well Played: Julianne Moore in Givenchy

I said on GFY recently that I suspected Julianne Moore might dress more carefully this year, because she doesn’t want to run the table in a series of insane gowns that will live in infamy.

I am one-for-one on THAT prediction.

National Board of Review Gala Fug or Fab: Julianne Moore in Dolce & Gabbana

She looks SO HAPPY here, with her very dishy husband, that it might just be selling me on the whole thing.

She may ALSO look so happy because she’s the front-runner for the Oscar this year, don’t you think? (I am sure she’s great in Still Alice, because everyone has said so [apparently Kristen Stewart is also fantastic in it], but I know me and I can’t see it. My own grandmother had early on-set Alzheimer’s and I just can’t watch a movie about it. That said: I love Julianne Moore and she’s a great actress and I want her to be happy and she deserves an Oscar for SOMETHING, that is for sure, so I am happy to sign off on this if someone will just bring me the paperwork.) She’s so happy and he’s so happy, that I just want to stamp this whole thing APPROVED and move right along. What do you think?

Still Fuglice: Julianne Moore in Delpozo at the Palm Springs Film Festival

I’m tired of the phrase “broke the Internet” — ALREADY; that was fast — but it certainly felt like that’s what happened on Twitter when Julianne Moore stepped out in this over the weekend. People HATED it. I don’t disagree with them.

This is very Julianne in theory – she loves weird shapes and catastrophic cuts — but in practice it’s SO Chloe Grace Moretz at the Teen Choice Awards, accepting a gaudy prop trophy for Choice Teen Idol Making Moony Eyes At A Guy Who Will Drop Off The Radar, and reveling in the fact that when you’re seventeen you can wear high-fashion camping equipment and people will smile and call it a phase. The decals look like she bought them at Target and stuck them on herself, and the sleeves have Bovine Ear Syndrome. Seriously, look at the line of the top. It’s a cow’s forehead and ears. That’s all I can see now.

As for the shoes, they’re the Givenchy take on that personality-free style. She’s worn them before; they are the Hayden Christensen of footwear: basically bland and not as cute as you want them to be. I can understand why she chose them, but honestly, a crazy shoe at least would’ve felt committed. As it is, there’s a disconnect for me between her head and feet, and the outfit. In fact, her top-and-toes seem so underdone — her smile so generically pleasant — that it’s almost as if she posed somewhere in JUST the shoes and her underpinnings, so that her stylist could Photoshop her onto a backdrop and then drag and drop dresses on top of her to see what might work. I wouldn’t have gone in this direction, but hey, Julianne Moore is nothing if not style-bananas.

She looked a lot better when she kept it simple:

Unfugs or Fabs: Julianne Moore in Alexander Wang and Alexander McQueen

Julianne is apparently super into Alexanders right now. But is it advisable? You decide.

Exhibit A: The McQueen.

I get that this is a casual dress for a casual Q&A, so there’s not much reason to work up a head of steam about it. But the way the top is designed to look like the world’s dreariest Talbot’s sweater set bums me out. Do not go full Talbots on a full McQueen budget. It’s like paying restaurant prices for a quarter-pounder.

Next up: the Wang, which is more interesting.

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.
