Fugger: Kate Hudson

Fugs and Fabs: A Novak Djokovic Charity Event

It must be hard to lose Wimbledon one day and then host a charity shindig the next, especially one that MAY have been scheduled in the hopes that it’d be tied to your victory lap. Fortunately, Sarah Ferguson and the ornate orthodontia she strapped to her waist were there to drag him out of his doldrums.

Fugs and Fabs: LBDs

Technically, they’re not all little black dresses — some of them might just be little darkly colored dresses. And actually some of them aren’t little, and one of them isn’t a dress. So let’s revise: Basically, it seems like a lot of people have worn black in the last two days. Might as well herd them.

Well Played, Kate Hudson

And so my mercurial relationship with Stella McCartney continues.

Well, it’s not ENTIRELY mercurial. It’s more… lots of lows, interrupted by occasional confusing highs like this. I think Kate looks spectacular in it. In fact, maybe it’s Stella attempting to rectify that horrid rodeo-glam gown she had Kate wear to the Oscars. I think she has a few more years and tens of gowns to go before that debt is paid, but at least this is a step toward balancing the karmic books.

Golden Globes Well Played: Kate Hudson and Helen Mirren

There is something terribly awesome about the fact that Kate and Helen both went with slinky black gowns that had gold accents, and both of them completely kicked red-carpet derriere without detracting from each other.

I love this, even with the whiff of danger that it’s going to turn on her and crush her larynx. That actually feels like a movie — some cross between Speed and Indiana Jones wherein Harrison Ford and his OTHER, better son, played by Ryan Gosling, has to rescue Ms. Hudson from the ancient Egyptian fashion curse that she activated by plucking this dress from what she thought was a novelty King Tut bin, and whch will end in this choking her before the clock strikes twelve. And because I would totally go see that movie, I still like the dress.

That Helen Mirren is in the same post as Kate Hudson and will not suffer by comparison is a testament to her greatness.

Fugs and Fabs: The amfAR Gala

Yet another event where people look like they’re going to totally different parties — which is secretly one of my very favorite things when it comes to celeb events. I mean, we’ve all been invited to something where they make the dress code something that is essentially meaningless (“cocktail picnic!” “formal hoe-down!” “festive business!”) but you’d think these things would be more clear cut. I mean, “GALA” is right there in the name of the event.
