Fugger: Rita Ora

Casual Fuggerday: Coats Coats Coats

I miss chilly New York already, although it’s a HUGE money-savings to live in LA because I can’t indulge my outerwear fetish.

BRIT Awards Fug Carpet: Rita Ora

Now that I’ve seen Rita interviewed a couple times — she seems like a lot of fun, but in a sprightly way, not an “and then I woke up wearing a throw-pillow on my head and my mouth tasted like dead bugs and why is there ONE legwarmer on my arm and WHERE is half of my hair” way — I get even more bummed out when she tosses on a garment that doesn’t do herself justice.

This is obviously very bright and it’s got green sparkles glued to it and there’s a slight plunge, but none of it adds up properly. The math isn’t sound. It’s like someone took all the elements of a dress and threw them on her carelessly and that’s why we have something that maybe doesn’t fit that well and hangs poorly and looks like a full-body apron at a Vegas club called Casserole.

Elle Style Awards: Fugs and Fabs of the Rest

I seriously feel like Elle, every year, must have a conversation that goes thusly: “Should we UNDERLINE the word ‘style’? Do they just not see it in there?”

New York Fugshion Week: Day Five Celebs

Today was the day I marched around with a curling iron burn mark on my FACE, because I am that cool.

We were standing so close to Solange at Milly that our hair may have started a conversation, but we chickened out of doing it ourselves.

Debra Messing seemed to be having a great time at Dennis Basso, but she might want to be careful about shouting out her phone number. One never knows who’s listening.

The Carolina Herrera show began with us entering through a Hall of Men. No, really. We assume Dita Von Teese didn’t enter that way because that’s what she does every other day of her life.

We feared for our lives at Alice + Olivia.

Hugh Jackman is pretty damn delicious in person. Thank you, Donna Karan. Plus: bonus Katie Holmes sighting.


Casual Fuggerday: Rita Ora

For a hot second I thought this was an actual bathrobe.

I have now revised my thinking to “hooded sweatshirt and white skirt.” But I pondered that way longer than I should’ve had to, Rita. Props for accessorizing it with great shoes, but seriously, when you wander around the Cheateau Marmont looking like you’re stealing the complimentary robe, Housekeeping may assume you’re smuggling tiny shampoos to your friends and stop stocking your bathroom.

Grammy Awards Well Played, Rita Ora

So, last night’s E! Red Carpet was basically the first time I’ve really been exposed to Rita Ora in action — rather than in photos of her coming out of London clubs wearing something INSANE — and I must tell you, she was TOTALLY CHARMING and I might be in love with her now. I am so fickle. It helps that her dress here (Lanvin, I believe) is great. She manages to look cool and casual and event-appropriate at the same time.
