Fugger: Laura Dern

Fugs and Fabs and Fines: Women Wearing White(ish) on The Oscars Red Carpet


Okay. So some of these gowns are cream, and one of them might actually be veering into gold, but…close enough, right? Basically, I just threw this together to have an impromptu Ally McBeal reunion.

Golden Globes Fugs and Fabs: Metallics and Metallic Adjacents


I just realized that the reason I put all these women together is that, as a group, they match one of my throw pillows. It’s been a very busy couple of days. Regardless, let’s soldier on!

Somehow Emmy Rossum’s makeup artist turned her into Leighton Meester. It’s face alchemy.

Emmy Awards Well Played: Laura Dern


I’m proud of myself, because I ALMOST got this right: When Monique Lhuillier sent this very similar gown down the runway, Laura Dern was one of my picks for it. Instead, she wore this gorgeous Naeem Khan, of which I said basically that once it was lined there would be happiness in the land.

I think THAT part, I nailed. As did she. This is sexy and gorgeous and dignified and romantic, and I think it found a very welcoming home. And if she’s mean to it, I would like to offer it shelter. I would bravely, generously, turn my closet into a halfway house for discarded red-carpet fashion. I am the real hero.

Cannes: The Lightbox Purge


Cannes is STILL GOING ON, and it doesn’t end until Sunday, so before the big closing weekend it’s time for a quick sweep of the things that slipped through the cracks. First up: Nicole Kidman wearing the Valentino that Anne Hathaway rejected for the Oscars for reasons of ridiculousness (edit: Valentino says it’s not the same, but what’s funny is that it looks more like Seyfried’s dress to me than the actual rejected one). You can bleach your hair, Anne, but you can’t bleach your regrets (edit: I still stand by this).
