Fugger: Saoirse Ronan

Tony Awards Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else

The Tonys are always such a fun awards show to watch — no one else brings out tap-dancing on the regular, which is a mistake. Let’s wrap up the red carpet.

Met Gala Fug or Fab Carpet: Saoirse Ronan in Christopher Kane

I love Saoirse — as you know — and I find this very 60s-style makeup on her to be super appealing. In fact, I sort of wish her entire self from the feathers up was appearing on the cover of a magazine. Can’t you just see it?


The Daily Mail (I know) called this “kooky,” and for once, I have to agree with them. I don’t dislike kookiness — in general, in fact, I have a tendency to embrace it — but I’m not sure if I get how this particular brand of kookiness meshed with this year’s theme (“Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” in case you needed a refresher). Can’t every celeb ALSO deliver a short speech on their sartorial thesis as they emerge from their car at this thing?

She wore something similar at the after-party, and when I say “similar,” I mean SUPER similar:

Was that a rip-off skirt all along? SAOIRSE, I HAVE QUESTIONS!

I love everything about the top half of this photo.

Saoirse Ronan Takes A Walk In NYC

I love her jacket her glasses, her purse, and the fact that she’s clearly having THE MOST DISHY conversation on her cell. I imagine her friend was like, “… and then he lied about his mother’s Jello salad WHILE WE WERE NAKED…” and Saoirse is like, “IS THAT A EUPHEMISM WHAT IS A JELLO SALAD.” Sigh. Millennials.

Anyhoo, then the rest of the outfit happened:

This might be my best dressed of the night. She looks amazing.

I hate to disappoint you, but Cate Blanchett ditched. I assume she’s off making sure that she’s sufficiently radiant on the 28th?

Unfug or Fab: Saoirse Ronan

So, y’all: 2016. It’s happening. And the opening few weeks have been jam-packed enough that I wrote up this whole post about an outfit Jessica had already included in a slideshow from the SAGs weekend. It ran on GFY for about nine minutes before we noticed, at which point obviously I yelped and took it down and then whined to Twitter about what a moron I am.

But then we decided, “Well, whatever, why NOT look at it again.” Her SAG dress may have overshadowed it the first time, and it’s HERE, and it’s late in the day for some people. We might as well put it under a microscope.

Chalk this up to a good idea about whose execution I am unsure. Saoirse Ronan could totally pull off a cool suit. She could also pull off a metallic suit and/or a plaid suit, and I’m glad someone is experimenting with edgy ideas here. But IS this actually that edgy? Is it cool? Is it the suit we were looking for, Obi-Wan?

Obviously, she’s at a slight deficit just because she’s in dark clothes in front of a dark backdrop, so it’s very tough to tell WHAT exactly is happening. I’d like to give her either a darker eye or a redder lip. I’d certainly ditch the open-toed shoes with it, or at least, those specific ones, which appear blocky and ’90s in a way that chips away at the ensemble’s polish. Overall, I’m concerned about whether this suit is secretly frumpy. Like, you THINK a metallic plaid suit will be cool, but is the double-breasted cut backfiring on her? Would this have looked better hanging open with a basic shirt or cami underneath? Something is off.

In the light, you can see it’s more silvery:

SAG Awards Fine or Fab: Saoirse Ronan in Michael Kors

I am not wholly sure that I love this dress on her — it’s delicately pretty, and I suspect it’s highly elegant in person, but it might wash her out a wee bit in photos — but she really seemed to be having a good time at the SAGs. Anyone who pops in for a photo with Jon Hamm for no reason I can figure out other than, you know, who doesn’t want a photo with Jon Hamm, is golden with me.
