Fugger: Michelle Dockery

Fabs and Fines: Michelle Dockery and Lupita Nyong’o

I am almost relieved that Lupita is wearing something that I am not madly in love with. I have that superstitious sports fan feeling where I need her to make a tiny misstep now to decrease the chances that she’ll make a giant one at the Oscars. Additionally, I don’t understand why so few of the ads for Non-Stop include either one of these women. I’ve seen one with Lady Mary in it, but none with Lupita — I didn’t even realize she was in it, until Fug Friend Grant told me. Liam Neeson + Julianne Moore + Michelle Dockery + Lupita Nyong’o = this movie has a REALLY good cast.

Fug or Fab: Michelle Dockery

I love Erdem, which this is. And goodness knows, I think she is divine:

And actually, I think I like this. I was unmoved the first time I saw it, but now that I’ve decided it looks like something she’d wear should Downton get into, say, season 10 — and continue not to age people, which is my favorite thing about Downton, and also why I think it might turn out that they’re actually all a race of British immortals doomed to make bad financial choices and have troublesome romantical issues THROUGHOUT TIME — I’m sold. But I’m also easy.

Fug and Fab: The Ladies of “Non-Stop”

I kind of love that Lady Mary is doing an action thriller, because — unless Downton Abbey takes a very unexpected turn — it’s so very un-Mary. And Lupita Nyong’o is in it, too, although she skipped the Paris premiere, perhaps smartly saving her style mojo for the BAFTAs and the Oscars. Anyway, Non-Stop is apparently Liam Neeson as an air marshal who is told a passenger will die every twenty minutes unless yada yada yada, because I guess Liam Neeson is the new Harrison Ford. This of this as Taken: My Plane.

And enter Michelle Dockery… as the woman he loves:

I actually have no idea if that’s true, but it SHOULD be. He SHOULD love Michelle Dockery. Everyone else does. And she looks great here in a simple little black dress with a cool belt, a subtle but still very much present lip, nice black shoes that are beyond your basic round-toe platform, and a shiny clutch. This is so simple, but so sophisticated, and makes you hypnotized by her skin and her bone structure. And not an ounce of bronzer in sight, Hollywood. See? You CAN be person-colored.

Julianne Moore is also in this movie:

Much like the Downton estate itself, things that first appeared to be just fine are not running as smoothly as desired.

Fug or Fab: Michelle Dockery

If this were me, I would be terrified of sweat stains.

But that may be one of the many reasons it’s NOT me. Michelle looks unperturbed by anything. Just cool and collected, and always very grown-up and unusual. My chief beef is with the hip part, and how it wrinkles there, but you know what? Chief Beef can shove it with knobs on, I think, because I think this is interesting and now I also want some mustard. Maybe Chief Beef knows Colonel Mustard and can get me a discount. This post has been brought to you by extreme jet lag and zzz.
