Fugger: Juliette Lewis

Fugs and Fabs: Women Wearing Solids at the Elle Women in Hollywood Party

YES, I accidentally published this post with just “words” here in the intro. SIGH. It’s only Tuesday? ARE YOU SURE?


Oscars Post-Parties Fugs and Fabs: Women Wearing Black

The Little Black Dress is a classic for a reason. Although, technically, some of these aren’t little. And a few of them might not be dresses.

Fug or Fab: Juliette Lewis at the Elle Women in TV Dinner

Well, it’s a great hue.

But it looks extremely makeshift, like she was naked ten minutes ago and then regained her mystery with some ingenuity and a safety pin.

From the back, it looks like she’s wearing a messenger bag. Meaning, a dress that actually unfolds from an unassuming messenger bag and then turns back into one for storage and easy packing – you know, like the Baggu of fashion.

Art of Elysium Fug or Fab: Juliette Lewis in Vivienne Westwood

Just prepare yourself for a day of people sweeping into frame in a dramatic Vivienne Westwood gown:

This is truly a case of the right dress on the right person. This dress is, objectively, VERY dramatic, and basically exactly what I’d expect The Wicked Witch of the West to wear to the Met Gala. That said, if she did do, I think my reaction would be, “oooh, you guys! Almira Gulch TOTALLY pulled it off this year!” And, indeed, while I think Juliette Lewis is — obviously — much prettier and far more glamorous than the fictional Ms Gulch, I think she has the right zest, and just enough 90s grunge cred, to wear this without it wearing her. It is WACKY, but wacky with panache, and just dark enough that she doesn’t look silly. Ultimately, I approve.

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else

As they say at the bar, you don’t have to go home, Oscars, but you can’t stay here. Let’s wrap this awards season up!



Fugs and Fabs: Elle’s Women in Television Event

I tried to arrange this one as bad-good-bad-good, etc. (although it kind of backfired on me), so as to give you the maximum amount of whiplash. In honor of JK Simmons’ performance in the movie, obviously, which reminds me that the Tina/Amy joke that McConaughey calls him “jus’ keep Simmons” was one of my absolute favorites.
