Fugger: Kristen Wiig

Fug and Fab: Kristen Wiig

Here’s the thing. One of these is great, and the other is….kind of a disaster, but that still means she’s hitting .500 today. If she were a baseball player, we’d be wetting ourselves with joy.

Let’s start with the good one, shall we? It’s Peter Som (it does feel related to Julie Bowen’s great Emmys dress from same) and I think it’s fab:

As, in fact, might this dress be. Sure, it’s like four outfits folded into one other outfit — one of which might have started life as a placemat — and yet, I am pretty sure I still enjoy it. Let me count the reasons:
