Fugger: Kristen Wiig

Fug or Fab: Kristen Wiig in Valentino

We recently saw this dress’s sibling on Rachel Weisz, and Fug Nation liked it better than I did. Hence the vote here:

I do appreciate Wiig going all-out for a pattern, as opposed to one of her fail-safe neutrals. But for my money this is too juvenile on her, and I simply cannot escape the notion that she’s waiting for Sebastian the Crab to swing by and perform “Under the Sea” while Nemo and his dad dance a jig.

Met Gala I Don’t Even Know Anymore: Kristen Wiig in Prabal Gurung

This is not the depth of hue I would associate with Imperial Yellow — that would be Rihanna’s dress — but I know yellow in general is significant in the Chinese culture, so I’m going to work off the assumption that the color choice here was the nod to the theme. And, a welcome change of pace from red.

She actually looks good, except that I wish she ever looked like she did her hair at these things. (It’s a cute style, but it’s very casual.) The bracelets are a delight, and she’s not in beige, white, or black, so VICTORY IN OUR TIME and all that. It’s probably truthfully a dress for the Golden Globes, but then again, I’ve said countless times that in these people’s shoes I would probably be a total coward about accidentally being offensive at this particular shindig. So I can’t blame her for not being more adventurous — and frankly, for K.Wiig, this IS adventurous.

I don’t know what’s keeping me from embracing this wholeheartedly. Maybe it’s that Kristen Wiig often has the aura of looking like she was recently startled by something, and is chuckling awkwardly to cover it. Or that she’s very nervous and about to say something self-deprecating, or that she is trying to get through this quickly so she can find a bathroom. She hasn’t always found an ease about herself yet, and that’s not her fault, but it does sometimes keep her from closing the fashion deal with me. Consider it the opposite of Emma Stone, who could beam her way through wearing a pork pie and have you thinking, “Well, but she’s so CHARMING in it…” I think… I’ve decided it makes me happy, but YOUR VOTE COUNTS.

Well Played, Kristen Wiig

It gives me great pleasure to present to you, ladies and gentleman, Kristen Wiig:

> at Sunshine Landmark on April 29, 2015 in New York City.

I have had many a complaint about her wardrobe over the years, as you guys know — remember that time she wore a choker with a halter top? I’ve never gotten over it — but I think this is so snappy and snazzy and sassy and all those other “s” adjectives that old people use when they think you’ve got moxie. And I LOVE Moxie.

Fugs and Fabs: Solids at the Independent Spirit Awards

And we can put THIS sucker to bed, at last. Come for the ScarJo, stay for some Kristens, formal pajamas, and the new Supergirl.

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of SNL40

Someone on Twitter noted that with Fashion Week, the NBA All-Star game, and the SNL40 thing, there might not have been any celebrities left in LA. It sounded true to me.

Fugs and Fabs: The (Mostly) Candids of Sundance

On Twitter this past week, Lena Dunham noted that she expected to see more “bazonkers snow fashion” at Sundance and I must concur! But don’t worry. There is some bazonkersness within. And there’s also coats, and men with facial hair, and Keanu Reeves. KEANU!


Golden Globes Fug Carpet: Kristen Wiig in Delphine Manivet

In the plus column: Good makeup, and a bracelet that might be made of snakes.

In the minus column: Her fairy godmother was blotto on moonshine, so when she slurred, “Unpleasant sheath,” all Kristen heard was, “Peasant-chic.” The rest is sad history.
