Fugger: Rachel McAdams

Well Played, Rachel McAdams


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.

You have to give Rachel McAdams credit: she doesn’t always get it right, but she tries things, and in the long run, that’s more interesting than the alternative. So let’s take a look at the Marchesa she wore for the Cannes premiere of her Woody Allen movie, which looks kind of terrible. But on the other hand, Paris — the city, not the celebutante — appears to have been filmed so beautifully that it makes me want to cry. So…. At least there’s that. We’ll always have cinematography.

I went through so many pictures of this photo call, trying to find one where McAdams here isn’t posing with her hands on her hips. This was the best I could find:

Girl, when you’ve got do-dads on your hips, you don’t want to be squashing them with your hands! That’s like the designer dress equivalent of a bride spending her wedding reception sitting on her bouquet. That being said, I think this is pretty swell. White is hard to wear without veering into bridal — or into Hey, I Look As Pale and Wan As If I Just Spent the Last Six Weeks in a Sanitarium — but I think she manages to avoid both those pitfalls. Also: that Ron Livingston-alike in the background is cute. That has nothing to do with her outfit, I just thought I’d note it.

How do you like it? COMMENT IT UP. Also, do we think she and Michael Sheen are engaged? Because I love that idea. (So this post is a little extra gossip-y and all over the place. IT HAPPENS.)

I seriously feel like this is one of those things where you’re all, “so close….AND THEN SO FAR AWAY” — as, in just one moment, what seems so promising turns…alarming. Take a journey with me, Fug Nation.

Fug or Fab: Rachel McAdams


This is a fairly nice choice for Rachel, if perhaps a familiar one — we all know I have the memory banks of a particularly tiny yam, so I’m sure I’ve even possibly written about it before in another color and simply don’t recall it because it happened more than two hours ago. The piled-high hair, I’m not as sure about, but I think my biggest issue is that I’d have loved to see this on her in another setting entirely. Somebody from Camp McAdams should’ve gotten briefed on the setting, so that Rachel could’ve avoided completely matching the backdrop — kind of blunts the impact of a big red dress, big red lips, and big (non-red, but that would’ve been awesome) hair. And as you’ll see in the slideshow, blending into one’s surroundings can have very… complicated… side effects.

Let her have it:
