Fugger: Patricia Clarkson

Tony Awards: Fugs and Fabs of the Rest


Well, they look about as stoked about this as I am. Remember, Leighton, Blair Waldorf was nothing if not an extremely polished salesman.

Let’s open this up, too, into a discussion of the Tony-nominated performances and plays. How did everyone feel about the winners? Do we think the likes of Bryan Cranston and Neil Patrick Harris should have won, or were they rewarded for the heft of their celebrity? That’s an honest question — I am sure both are fabulous in their roles, but I’m always curious about the allure of the crossover star when it comes to doling out these trophies. As much as it would be fun to vote in one of these things, though, ultimately I don’t envy the process of choosing, EXCEPT for how often it means I would get to go to the theatre. Man, I would be there ALL THE TIME. “Yeah, you know what, can I just go to A¬†Gentleman’s Guide To Love and Murder ONE more time? I’m REALLY TORN, YOU GUYS.”

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Who Fabbed It More, Amy Poehler or Patricia Clarkson


These two both killed it this year, in similar enough patterns that I’ve decided to be heinously cruel about it and make you choose.

Let’s start with Patricia Clarkson:

This is so good. SO good. The pattern is fabulous. It’s a combination of gleaming marine life and fireflies at night. It makes me want to go camping. Which is how I know I need to stop looking at it, because I am not a camper of any stripe, unless there are bathrooms and also beds and tents that are more like cabins, and electricity. So, I’m a hoteler.

Anyway. From that fabulousness to this one:

A bracelet — and a gorgeous one — is a check in the Poehler column. As is the fact that she looks better here, I think, than she’s ever looked, with the exception of the Globes. Actually, I give this more credence than the Globes because there is actually less pressure on this, and that’s often when people get sloppy, but instead she’s in a Peter Som gown that’s unusual and flattering and graceful, still formal but not constrictingly so. Whether you vote based on gowns alone, or past performances weighed against current success… that’s up to you. Consider this choice a warm-up for Fug Madness in two weeks.

Whose fab reigns supreme?

Fug and Fab the Marrakech Diors


Another day, another Dior. Between Catching Fire, the upcoming American Hustle events (unless J.Lawr skips all of them due to Junket Fatigue) and whatever Marion Cotillard and Patricia Clarkson are promoting in Marrakech, that label is everywhere right now. For better or worse. In the case of Clarkson, better; for Cotillard, the latter.

Fugs and Fabs: The Other People At Presumably The Last Catching Fire Screening


Right now their frequent flier accounts are what’s catching fire AM I RIGHT. … Sigh. I’m ready for this to be done so American Hustle can premiere, and we can all watch me struggle to rub together three words about Amy Adams.

Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else at the “Gravity” Premiere


We need to discuss something very important: Is Will Arnett trying to Single White (Fe)Male Patrick Wilson, or the other way around? I bet you just did a double-take to make sure you knew which one it is in the photo; it is Wilson, but I feel like… just barely.

Fugs and Fabs: Opening Night at the Metropolitan Opera


And now we have to play catch-up on everything that happened while we were wringing out our Emmy lightboxes. First up is this gala, which was FULL of dramatic gowns. When it’s time to go big, Diane Kruger rarely disappoints.
