Fugger: Katy Perry

Well Played, Katy Perry…?


Katy Perry certainly prefers being thematic when she promotes the Smurfs movies. But I think we can all agree that this is preferable to the absurdities of last time’s cartoon sex-organ sheath.

Is blue awfully adorable for a movie about a blue-tinted gnomic race that is so vain it can’t NOT base all its vocab on its own name? (Imagine if we were all, “You are so humany, Jon Hamm,” or, “I just American’d the car.”) Yes. Yes it is. But she also looks really pretty, and appropriate for a daytime premiere of a kiddie movie. And as a bonus, one of the Smurfs on the poster is accidentally photosmurfing her with bunny ears, which gives me warm feelings about the whole damn enterprise. Well, except for the movie itself. Here is how I feel about that: If I am on a plane and my choice is watching that movie and staring at the seatback tray table, I’m going to ogle the hell out of that beige bastard.

Fug or Fab the Cover: Katy Perry


I don’t think ANY of us called THIS (wait! Two of you, in fact, did. I am impressed):

That being said, while I’m impressed by the psychic skills of Fug Nation, I don’t know that I am that impressed with the cover. I feel like we’ve all seen that dress, or a version thereof, a thousand times before today, and — more importantly — I actually think Katy Perry is much prettier than this. Her face is lighter than her chest (which, honestly, come on. If Photoshop is good for anything, it ought to be able to make one’s foundation match one’s actual skin) and she looks like she’s in the middle of an attack of hay fever. Is being allergic to your dress really THAT hot for summer?

What do you think? (PS: I DO want to read that Extreme Detox article, I’m not gonna lie.)

Met Ball Fug Carpet: More Olde-Tymey Melodrama


If Linda Evangelista looked like the cover of a book about Lady Jane Grey, fictionalizing that she lived and was whisked away to grow up in hiding in Scotland, or something, so she could come back and claim the throne from a position of strength, then several other people are apparently supporting players in that story. Was there a memo?

Well Played, Katy Perry


I feel like Katy’s face sort of says it all here:

Namely, “I have NO IDEA what Vera Wang here is wearing, but at least I look great.”

Note: this was an event HONORING Vera so I suspect Katy might ALSO be wearing Vera, which honestly just leads us all into Physician, Heal Thyself territory.

Fugs and Fabs: The Gatsby/Prada Party


I fear the Gatsby movie will never come out and then when it does, it may never leave. It’s like we’ve been living in an endless cycle of Gatsby promotion for the last 17 years of our collective lives.  I have been so worn down that I can’t even launch into my usual diatribe about how GATSBY OF ALL THINGS SHOULD NOT BE IN 3D ARGH NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE IN 3D DON’T YOU GET THAT THE BOOK WAS REALLY NOT THAT POSITIVE ON THE SUBJECT OF VERY KIND OF OTT RIDICULOUSNESS THAT HAS LED TO ENDLESS 3D IN THE FIRST PLACE MAKE IT STOP.

Fugs and Fabs: White House Correspondents’ Dinner: Brights


We saw the white, black, navy, and otherwise vaguely neutral frocks, now let’s take a look at the women who actually wore some color this weekend. Also: OMG a LOT of people went to this thing, many of whom I doubt are even good EMAIL correspondents.
