Fugger: Nicole Scherzinger

Fugs and Fabs: The MOBO Awards

This red carpet is very shiny, and also well-weighted with women who use merely a single initial as a surname.

Who Fugged It More: Katy Perry vs Nicole Scherzinger

These two aren’t wearing the same thing, but both DID change from their BRIT Awards ensembles into something vaguely dated and belly-baring. And the Olympics are ending and football season is over, so it’s the time to go crazy.

I’m sure Katy Perry is tired of dressing like something that popped out of a candy factory, but you can clean it up and class it up and still look youthful, which this does not. If this had been a whole dress, maybe it would’ve worked better for me, but something about splitting it into pieces only emphasizes the musty cut of the top. It makes the sheerness of the skirt bottom look even more desperate — not for eyeballs, necessarily, but as a last-ditch attempt to bring this into today.

Nicole Scherzinger, who in this picture looks kind of like The Mean Kardashian, also went two-piece:

Casual Fuggerday: Nicole Scherzinger

YES, this is a catsuit:

I just sincerely wish I could be a fly on the wall to observe when people make the life choices that lead to them wearing a catsuit like this out of the house to an event that is not: (a) cat-burgling (b) their job as a stuntperson (c) performing in Vegas as a J Lo impersonator. Because I am sure the words, “it’s so flattering” are never uttered, nor, “but I feel so natural in this,” or “this is just easy” or “I just want to have a good time and not worry about what I’m wearing” or “it’s really easy to pee in this.” I suspect I would overhear, “well, I’m desperate for attention right now,” or “I’m just dying for a yeast infection,” though.

Fuglycat Dolls

I generally try to ignore Nicole Scherzinger — other than casually reflecting that it’s interesting to me how much success she’s seemingly had in the UK, and then falling down a Wikipedia Wormhole where I am reminded that she was nominated for a Grammy with The Pussycat Dolls (!), and subsequently they to The Black Eyed Peas for MY HUMPS OF ALL THINGS I DESPAIR FOR HUMANITY.  THAT CATEGORY IS INSANE IN WHAT WORLD IS “MY HUMPS” UP AGAINST “I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK”? (Other, I guess, than Songs That Make Me Want to Kill Myself For TOTALLY DIFFERENT REASONS); that she recorded “Don’t Cha” for SimPets in the Sim language (!!); and that she’s broken up with Lewis Hamilton three separate times. But this can not be ignored:
