Fugger: Nicki Minaj

Fug or Fab: Nicki Minaj


Between the minimalist makeup and the center-parted long dark locks, I seriously looked at this and thought, for a second, “Oh, look, Toni Braxton.”

It’s uncanny. But it’s also really… boring. I’m all for her features having a chance to shine, but she’s almost SO aggressively trying to downplay her natural quirk — in service of what, being a “serious actress” in the future? — that it’s making her kind of a blank. Embrace the middle ground, Nicki. And embracelet yourself.

Or maybe it's great. You tell me:

MTV Movie Awards Sanely Played Carpet: Nicki Minaj in Alexander McQueen


Well, your guess is as good as mine about whether SHE liked this  but for ME it was refreshing. And I say that knowing about the Side Sheers.

New York Fugshion Week: Celebs of Day Seven


One more day of Fashion Week remains — and, in fact, one more show. ONE MORE SHOW, ONE SHOW MORE! By the way, you can tell how hot it was yesterday by a lot of these pictures. Many people look droopy and a lot of them look like they’re suffering from brain fever.

We luxuriated in the GLORY that is The Blonds and the crazy that is Betsey Johnson, and spied the likes of Johnny Weir, Paris Hilton (AGAIN YOU GUYS, SHE’S BACK), Kat Graham (pantsless), and Tyra (pantsed) therein.

– I talked to Kat Graham at Jeremy Scott and she was charming. We chatted a bit about Vampire Diaries, and the issues that arise when your character never gets to change her clothes due to, you know, TEMPORAL ISSUES. (In case for some reason, you’re not caught up yet. Which is something you need to do.) We had to talk about something while Nicki Minaj made us all wait FOREVER.

– We announced to a certain CW someone that we are disgusting at Rachel Zoe, and it was true: it was HOT yesterday. Also, we spoke to Fruitvale Station‘s Melonie Diaz at J Mendel. She’s very into Pinterest right now.

–And, possibly most thrillingly, I spoke to Gabriel Mann at Nanette Lepore, and he squeezed my arm and used the words “hyper-sexual manipulations,” so I think we’re engaged now. MAZEL TOV TO ME!

New York Fugshion Week: Celebs of Day 3


Oooh, we have some good stuff for you today, my pretties. And some of that stuff involves prettiness.

Nicki Minaj showed up at Herve Leger with two totally OVER THE TOP bodyguards, who seemed really to rumble with any wayward fashionista who crossed their path. One of them looked slightly like The Rock, and as ridiculous as the entire thing was, I’d like to just put it out to the universe that I would totally watch a remake of The Bodyguard starring Nicki Minaj and The Rock.

– We sat right behind Fug Fave Zosia Mamet at Rebecca Taylor and she was really charming. Also, I am completely photobombing her in this photo, and I did it on purpose, yes.

– You know who’s hot? Nigel Barker. So smooth. So suave. So handsome.

We chatted with Selma Blair at Christian Siriano, and learned many things, including that her son has a beloved Marc Jacobs doll, which is very cute indeed.

Ashley from Revenge was at Monique Lhuiller, and we did NOT as her why her character was the worst PR person in the universe. LOADS of other people were there, too, including Maggie Grace, to whom we spoke at length about SWORDS.

Met Gala Fug Carpet: Nicki Minaj


Let’s get real. This woman once attended the Grammys dressed as a PSYCHOTIC NUN and dragged along a faux-Pope as her accessory:

Nicki, I don’t know who told you to tone it down for this event. Maybe it was Anna Wintour! Maybe it was Mariah Carey. Maybe it was a new stylist who recently hit her head and didn’t realize where she was or to whom she was speaking. Whoever it was, to paraphrase the words of Brenda Walsh, NEVER SPEAK TO THEM AGAIN.
