Fugger: Kate Winslet

Fugs and Fabs the Cover: Recent UK Magazines

Shall we eyeball some recent covers out of the UK? Where, for what it’s worth, I LOVE THE MAGAZINES. Half of them give you gifts! Half of them are wee, purse-sized little books of delight! Some of them are REALLY TRASHY (heat)! And then there is my favorite of all the glossy monthlies, Tatler, for which I pay an absurd fee to have delivered to my home and which I HAVE NEVER REGRETTED. They once had a whole sidebar about ridiculous British names that caused me and Heather to worry that The Royal We didn’t have a sufficiently crazily-named character and one of our major players is named after a font. It recently had an article about aristocratic menageries of yore which included a photo of a lemur (!) named Mah-Jongg (!!) on a deck-chair (!!!) OF SOMEONE’S YACHT! IT’S THE BEST.

Join me, won’t you?


Pretty Well Played: Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet loves a deep solid color, and here she is, back on the scene in one:

All the elements are there: good makeup, cute non-traditional shoes, a spirited pedicure, a great bracelet. I’m not sure I think the dress is fabulous – I might wish it had found a way to be more flattering in the chest/under-chest area, because it sort of swallows her up there – but given that she just gave birth in December and has been out infrequently, this a very solid entry in the Winslet 101 canon and sometimes nailing the basics is all you need. Welcome back, Winslet. Please do a movie that’s a bit more chipper soon.

Well Played: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet at the Divergent Premiere

SHAILENE: This color is great on me. Do you think everyone here is recalling the interview I gave where I said I like to sunbathe my vagina?

THEO: I am extremely handsome and Lady Mary was right to risk killing me with her own, presumably less tan, vagina. Also, yes, Shailene. Yes, everyone is thinking that. I cannot stop thinking about it.

KATE: I mostly am thinking about your neighbors and hoping that, at the very least, your sundeck is private. But let’s talk about me and how great I also look.

SHAILENE: We actually all look really pretty sharp, even if the Divergent logo behind us looks weirdly like a wine bottle from this angle and it makes it seem like we’re at some weird formal dystopian wine-tasting. Let’s see the back of my dress”

He looks so dapper for a man who was brutally murdered by a lady’s vagina.

Fug the Cover: Kate Winslet on Vogue

I am pretty excited that I predicted this in our annual Vogue Predict The Cover:

But do I — or any of us — really get those points when the actor in question looks nigh-unrecognizable? Additionally, this poor blonde woman, whomever she may be, appears to have been living in a wind tunnel for at least five years. Should any of us truly benefit when there are such horrors at hand? As a sidebar, I find it hard to believe that no one at Vogue pointed that when the only celebrity names on your cover are Kate Winslet, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Matthew McConaughey, you are perhaps in danger of being accused of no longer having your finger on the pulse of Hollywood (no disrespect to McConaughey, who has been having an interesting couple of years in terms of the roles he takes. All disrespect to the person who decided that 2013 was a great time to make a Sex and the City reference on the cover of Vogue. Poor SJP must have seen that and just groaned). All that being said, I do hold out hope that “Power Python for the Office” is a how-to on bringing your snake to work.

Well Played, Kate Winslet

You know that, when prepping for this event, Kate Winslet and her stylist surely made many a joke about how she’s attending the premiere for a movie called Labor Day when it appears she is very close to going into labor.
