Fugger: Rachel McAdams

Fug or Fab: Rachel McAdams


Someone needs to hand Rachel McAdams another really good movie. I mean, maybe The Vow is it, but I feel like The Vow can’t possibly be really good movie straight-up; it could be a really good movie for watching on an airplane, and it will definitely be a movie people have on their mental list of Movies I Secretly Look For On HBO Every Time I Do A Sweatpants Night On My Couch With A Bottle of Wine To Myself (see also: Love, Actually; The Holiday; anything where people find love in winter, really). But it’s doubtful that this movie will change the way anyone sees Rachel McAdams, or the roles that are offered to Rachel McAdams, and I think she’s too charming and talented to drift. She needs a game-changer. Not that it’s so bad to end up being the go-to girl for Nicholas Sparks or Nicholas Sparks Adjacent projects, mind, but… I guess what I’m saying is, I really loved Mean Girls. And she was so gorgeous in Wedding Crashers. Make me laugh again, Rachel. I can’t secret-cry with you ALL the time.

Fug or Fab: Rachel McAdams


Leaving aside the fact that you can see her bra here — a tactical error, but surely not an intentional one — is it crazy that I kind of love this?

I feel like she’s ten minutes away from walking on screen in an old black and white movie, carelessly tossing her clutch onto a cocktail table, lighting a cigarette (what is unattractive now is so much more glamorous in the Olden Days of Black and White), tossing back a mai tai, and drawling that Hawaii’s awfully dull in early December. Then, of course, the Japanese would attack and she’d have to choose between her old boyfriend Ben Affleck With Frosted Tips and….wait, how’d this turn into Pearl Harbor? That movie’s not even in black and white. REGARDLESS. I wish she were wearing different shoes, but I love how much she loves pattern, and I think this is maybe the only outfit ever to actually nail a Formal Casual dress code.

Fabs and Fehs: Rachel McAdams


She’s so charming, right? Of all the actresses that I just LIKE, McAdams is really right up there. I don’t get why she’s not a bigger star — although Lainey says she turned down Devil Wears Prada, which makes me worry that her team doesn’t have the most discerning eye. She’s the sort of actress that the women in the audience can imagine knowing. She feels like our smart, VERY pretty friend — the one we’d hate, but she’s really funny and kind of awesome and she’s dating Michael Sheen. She’s like the anti-Heigl; When you imagine hanging out with her, it doesn’t seem like you’d be spending the whole time talking about HER. That being said, let’s talk about her.

Well Played, Rachel McAdams


There are two things I love about this picture of the back of McAdams’s dress:

1) The expression of delight on the face of that cute girl wearing the scarf. She is so pleased! It’s awesome. And:

2) The actual back of Rachel McAdams’s dress.

I don’t know how I feel about the black shoes — they feel a little bit like she broke the heel off the metallic shoe she originally planned to wear with this, and had to make the swap at the last minute — but the rest of this is kind of great, no?

I mean, a little dash of Marilyn Monroe never hurt anyone. As long as it’s the Stylistic Marilyn Monroe, not the Bad Relationships/Drug Abuse/Really Sad parts of Marilyn Monroe. Those parts, you should probably stay away from, regardless of how good they might make you look.

UnFug It Up: Rachel McAdams


I just want to start this off by saying: THIS IS BOLD. I’d also like to say: imagine this was a skirt, and not pants. I’M JUST SAYING. I think if that were the case, she might have a different expression on her face. Let’s a journey into the Wonderful (?) World of Formal[ ?] High-Waisted Cannes Pants, and then pop into the comments to explain how you’d fix this….if you even think it needs fixing.
