Fugger: Marion Cotillard

Unfug or Fab: Marion Cotillard


As usual, Marian Cotillard isn’t doing anything much to her face — just sorta letting it be there, without much makeup, hoping its natural charms will save the day as they so often do.

It might be working? The top and the pants don’t seem to have much relevance to one another, except that… I don’t know what else you DO with that shirt. She’s making the pegged pin-stripes look about as sensible as can be expected on a living human; the shoes are supposed to be the period at the end of the sartorial sentence, but they bring me more to a screeching halt than a full stop. Maybe I hate them generally; maybe it’s just here. Or maybe I am already behind the times once more, and in six months I will be ALL ABOUT reliving the hooves of the ’90s, just as everyone else is moving onto something else old-as-new. So you tell me: Is this so very Frenchly casual-chic, or is it in need of some editing?

Oscars Post-Party Fugs and Fabs: Stars Who Changed Clothes


It happens every year: We line up our posts for the day after the big ceremony, only to find out half the people we’ve already featured had another outfit on tap for the after-parties. There are a lot of tired stylists in Hollywood today, to go along with all the weary bloggers.

Oscars Fug Carpet: Marion Cotillard in Dior


I wish she could’ve just sidestepped her way through the night, so I’d never known what the back looked like.

Fugs or Fabs: Marion Cotillard in Carolina Herrera


Heather and I were just talking about how we never would have put Marion in Carolina Herrera. Not because there’s something wrong with Carolina — on the contrary! — but just because it seems like an unlikely duo.

On the other hand, of all the Carolina Herrera dresses in the world, this one might look most like what will happen when we all start using 3-D printers for our clothing. I don’t hate it, but that might be because it’s on her. If this were on, say, Jessica Simpson — aw, man, I miss Jessica Simpson — we might be having a different conversation.

Fug or Fab: Marion Cotillard in Dior at the Oscar Nominee Luncheon


It’s like magic: Dior puts it on the runway, and then it appears on its favorite child.

Her overall loveliness can sell so many things, but I’m not sure a dress that looks like a Muppet missing its eyes is one of them. I like the sleeves, and I like the blue, and I like the color green, but all rolled together it might be more than one person can carry. If you told me the giant teardrop was actually a green-screen, and that all night people followed her around and keyed different special effects onto it — the leaning tower of Pisa! Maggie Smith’s face! A GIF of Duchess Kate rolling her eyes! Entire episodes of Models, Inc.! You work THAT out, Dior, and I will sign off on this and buy three with my own money.

In which my platonic ideal of stripe-y shirts makes an appearance. I SHOULD BUY ANOTHER ONE. (No. I have like thirty. HELP ME BE STRONG.)

A bracelet might have been perfection, but at least she had the lipstick.
