Fugger: Lily Cole

Met Ball Fugs and Fabs: Models at the Met

I might want Coco Rocha to seize Renee Zellweger by the bun and teach her a few things about the wild side, and how to walk there.

Refugged: Lily Cole

Remember these pants on Lily Cole? The ones that almost caused me to spiral into hysterical blindness, and which also made our Worst of 2012 post? THEY’RE BACK:

It really says something about a pair of pants — and their owner — when they are worn both on the red carpet and ALSO as a swim suit cover-up within the course of one short year.

It says something about ME that I like them better as the cover-up.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Fug

Model Lily Cole here is now being credited as “actress Lily Cole.”

Much as these pants spent a great deal of time being labeled, in my head, a skirt. When I happened upon this photo — playing the role of the Zapruder Film in the grand story of  Is This A Hideous Skirt or REALLY REALLY HIDEOUS PANTS???!?! — proving that tragically, we are looking at pants, I must confess to you that I actually said, “oh SHIT” aloud to my empty apartment.  I mean….okay. First of all, those pants are like John Audubon’s wet dream married to the wallpaper at the Kate Spade store and then BLOWN UP into what are essentially the silk gaucho pants they hand to you when you descend to one of the less fiery circles of hell. And that is all very very distracting. So distracting that you might not notice that the rest of her looks like she’s running late for Variable Topics in Comparative Literature. Which is a fine look when you are, in fact, late for Comparative Literature but not so much when you’re on the red carpet at a film festival.


Fug or Fab: Lily Cole

Is it wrong that I think this is totally divine, in a Red Riding Hood Before That Awkward Wolf/Grandma Incident Kind of Way?

I asked you a question!

Lily Fugole

Okay. So it’s part and parcel of my job to look at a photo and say, “WHAT is she WEARING?”

But in this instance, I actually can’t figure out what Lily Cole here actually IS wearing. Like. LITERALLY, WHAT is she WEARING?
