Fugger: Katherine Heigl

Recent Fugs and Fabs: A Summer of Celebrities in Stripes

How is it even possible that we haven’t rounded up Recent Events in Celebrity Stripes before? How else am I supposed to advance the Striped Agenda?!

Fug or Fine: Katherine Heigl at TCAs

I had TOTALLY forgotten about Katherine Heigl being pregnant until I saw this photo. That’s very exciting for her; I’m sure it’s frustrating to have that happen right when you’re also trying to get a new show off the ground, but I’m sure she’d also be the first to agree that those are some fairly Champagne problems.

Katherine Heigl

But I still can’t figure out how she went from spunky Izzie Stevens to always looking like she’s the old-fashioned First Lady of a Southern state. Or an elderly patron of the arts who’s hoping to have a glass of Champagne with the ballet company’s hot new soloist. I don’t mean that she looks old facially or anything like that; I am talking about her aura. The haircut, the styling, the lazy shoes, and the effect all those things have on the perceived freshness of her fashion choices… she leapt from 32 to 52 one day and never found her way back. Which likely means that when she IS 52, she will look 52 until she is 92. (Also, her face is giving me major Sela Ward vibes in this photo, which is extremely good news for her 52-year old destiny because Sela Ward is still flawless.) But in the meantime it’s like Katherine is twiddling her thumbs waiting to ripen to the age her spirit has always wanted to be. It’s fascinating, albeit also confusing. Most of us cling to our youth like grim death — I mean, Gwen Stefani still dresses like she’s 23. In truth, if I had to pick, I think I’d go with the Heigl approach. At least she’s headed in the direction that Mother Time is naturally moving her.

This was a weird post. I blame Delta. I was supposed to fly home with the boys on Monday, but several cancellations and one refusal to seat us together later, we are finally back; at the time that I wrote this, though, that issue was still in doubt. So if I seem overly intolerant of Katherine Heigl looking less like the vibrant actress she is and more like a society dame who was once hired to teach Jessica Simpson posture and elocution, well, that’s why.

Fugs and Fabs: Day of Indulgence Party

I assume this is some kind of Celebrity Gifting Suite and Pampering Adventure. So even though these are mostly what you’d call candids, it seems like the surprise factor at being photographed is on par with going to lunch at The Ivy, but with added product placement.

Fug’s Anatomy: Katherine Heigl

I both hate to and love to do this to you. This post has — SPOILER! — quite a reveal at the end. It starts off just fine:

Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley at JENNY'S WEDDING Premiere at 2015 Outfest in LA

Perhaps even charming. Sleek. Amusing. I’ve been watching early seasons of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix recently and I realize I rather miss Heigl. (She also, by the way, was totally friendly and a complete hoot the one time we ever spoke to her at Fashion Week, which always warms my heart and gives me a nice cozy bias.)

Fugs and Fabs: Trevor Live

Trevor Live is, and I quote, “TrevorLIVE is a signature semi-annual event of The Trevor Project, the nation’s leading provider of crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.” So, as I say every year when we cover this, a very worthy project indeed. Now, let’s judge what people wore to support it.

Recent Fugs and Fabs: Katherine Heigl

She’s hitting the beat to promote State of Affairs, a show that seems like Homeland divided by Madam Secretary, which is not an equation I particularly want to see solved. But we’ll see. I’ll gladly watch three episodes in exchange for not seeing those pants again.
