Fugger: Mia Wasikowska

TIFF Fugs and Fabs: What We Missed


Apparently, there were 288 films at Toronto this year — one LESS than last year. So why does it feel like there were 600 MORE red-carpet screenings?

Well Played, Mia Wasikowska


The words we used most often to refer to Mia Wasikowska were “dreary” and “almost.” Well, and “WHY,” probably. We can eliminate a couple of those now:

This fits very well and is lovely on her — not at all depressing, and in a way it reminds me of Jennifer Lawrence’s simple red Oscars gown from the Winter’s Bone days. Mia’s obviously isn’t as va-va-voom, but definitely a situation where she is wearing it and not the other way around. But you could still argue that it’s an “almost”: She’s in need of better lip color, and of course, NAB (“needs a bracelet” — I am never sure how many uses means we no longer need to define the acronym). But overall this is a good step, for her, I think, and as a result, her whole mien is cheerier than usual.

Then again, maybe that’s because of this:

Pretty dreary work having to walk around next to Hiddleston all day, eh? Of course, she COULD have straightened his tie. DEMERIT. ACCEPT ANY EXCUSE TO TWIDDLE THE HIDDLE.

Well Played and Fug or Fab: Mia Wasikowska


Did you know Mia is dating Jesse Eisenberg? I feel like they’re kind of the perfect scuzzy hipster couple (in a good way, although she is wearing TERRIBLE pants in that story I just linked to) and I hope they’re sweet to one another. She cleaned up good here at the Venice Film Festival, although I have doubts about the frock she wore to the photocall. LET’S DISCUSS.

Sundance Fugs or Fabs: Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska


So, right after the New Year — when fresh content was slim — I had a “Where Are You?” post started that was a call out to people we used to see a lot but had disappeared. And I never finished it because our site broke, and by the time it was fixed, new stuff was starting to churn out again and we didn’t need it. But it turns out I was psychic, because a couple of the people I would have mentioned have suddenly popped up, one of them being Mia Wasikowska. It’s like she heard my plaintive call and wanted me to know that she’s still out there, and she still hasn’t sorted out her wardrobe.

Cannes Better Played, Mia Wasikowska


We get on Mia a lot for looking, well, depressing. This dress looks like if a five-year old was asked to draw “cheerful” with a jumbo pack of Crayola. Which isn’t actually a bad thing; I mean, come on, wouldn’t that look fancy tacked to your fridge with an old magnet from that time your co-worker went to Helsinki and brought everyone souvenirs from the airport gift shop?

Met Ball SIGH Carpet: Mia Wasikowska


I give up with this one.

If you actually want to look like someone’s governess all the time, there’s really nothing I can do about it.
