Fugger: Nicki Minaj

New York Fashion Week: Days 1-4


In case you wondered what we’re up to/what people are wearing to Fashion Week.

As for us:

1) We talked to a variety of women about their advice for younger women and other women in general, as professionals, and got some really good quotes, I think, from everyone from Christina Hendricks to Alica Silverstone.

2) Day Two was full of intriguing shenanigans, like The Return of the Choker, and the fact that now Solange isn’t talking to the press, either.

3) We wrote up the Project Runway finale; no spoilers herein, other than what each designer may have showed, because everyone who is still on TV as of Fashion Week gets to show a collection.

4) And Heather waited for an hour outside mashed potatoes — not a euphemism – to talk to (a very drunk, actually, as far as it seemed to us) Jessica Simpson.

5) And I got to chat up former Bachelorettes Jillian Harris and Andi Dorfman about break-ups, and Bachelor in Paradise and WINE. SO MUCH WINE.

MTV VMAs Fug Carpet: The Naked and the Sheers


Or in pizza* terms: It’s not delivery, it’s DiGiorNOOOOOOOO.

*For the uninitiated, one day we decided we were tired of talking about sheer clothing and decided to talk about pizza instead. It’s morphed into GFY slang in which “pizza” means “sheer.”

Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else at the BET Awards


It’s the first day of Heather’s vacation, and I’ve ALREADY published “words.” Things can only get better? But perhaps not herein…

Fug or Fab the Cover: Nicki Minaj on Cosmopolitan, July 2015


We’ve got some other foreign Cosmo covers in here, too, but really this is all about La Minaj. I can’t really remember what her deal is now; she seemed to be trying to act for a while, and she stopped dressing like a clearance aisle in Toys R Us, but I’ve lost track of what the replacement messaging is. Maybe it’s just “confident.” I can get with that.

Grammys Fugs and Fabs: Ladies in Black


Nicole Kidman was at the Berlin Film Festival RIGHT before the Grammys. She must have hightailed it there straight off the plane. I don’t look that good even when I slowly go someplace direct from my house.

American Music Awards Fugs and Fabs: People in Metallics


As you know, in general I cannot resist a metallic. But some of these may be…resistible.

American Music Awards Fugs and Fabs: Everyone in Basic (and not so basic) Black


I’m still not sure if I understand a lot of these things, like (a) how we’ve gotten to a point where Nicki Minaj isn’t popping up places wearing like swizzle sticks and tennis balls anymore, (b) how come everyone seems to be taking the AMAs so super seriously, and (c) the continued public appearances of Jenny McCarthy.
