Fugger: Justin Bieber

VMA Fugs and Fabs: The Dudes (With Bonus Appearances From a Lady or Two)

First of all, we need to give a round of applause to the man or woman responsible for getting The Biebs into real, normal-person-fitting, proper jeans. They make a WORLD of difference.  The hair, on the other hand, well…let’s discuss. Also: Austin Butler holds a puppy! Half of Fall Out Boy are pretty sure they’re the oldest people there! Shaun White wears neither denim NOR a hoodie!

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Metallics

Anne Hathaway just might be the Droid I’m looking for, except I don’t want to end that sentence on the preposition, so I’m still typing.

Fugs and Fabs: Coachella, Weekend One

Prepare yourself for denim short shorts, an avalanche of flowered crowns, a preponderance of fringe, and one UNHOLY ALLIANCE. I miss Vanessa Hudgens.

Fugs and Hmms: Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast

Yes, it was Bieber’s night, but if you think I’m not opening with Martha Stewart coyly peeking through a curtain like she is your surprise sexy dessert, then you don’t know me.

High Fugshion: The adidas x Kanye West YEEZY Show and Front Row

I know this is Kanye’s party, but we HAVE to open with discussing how Bieber looks like a refried Ken doll now.

Fugs and Fugs: The CR Fashion Book Party at Paris Fashion Week

Welcome to The Saucy Lady of the Night Circus. It’s just like The Night Circus itself, except the gymnastics are a lot naughtier.

amfAR in Cannes Better Played Carpet: Justin Bieber

I mean, it’s a whole hell of a lot better:

I am not sure the pants are supposed to be quite so bunchy all the way down (and the rest of it also seems fitted oddly and shoved around, as if the primary objective was to make his shoulders look broad and show off the arm tattoos). But then again, this is a person who until recently seemed to believe pants were supposed to include a superhuman amount of bulge space and/or fasten under the buttocks, and it’s pleasant to see him looking human and relatively rational. In other words, one small step for man is, in fact, one giant leap for Biebkind.

Edited to add: I didn’t see the mustache at first. It’s… not good, if that’s what it is. But still: Considering his behavioral optics were bad enough for him to be left out of Fug Madness, I’m just glad he’s dressed, and in clothes that appear to be staying on him.
