Fugger: Shailene Woodley

Fug or Fab: Shailene Woodley (with bonus Theo James) in Elie Saab and Valentino


Welcome back, Shailene. And Mr. Pamuk. I’m sure if he’d lived past Mary’s vagina, he would have been very pleased with the end of its reign of terror on Downton Abbey.

Shailene Woodley

Theo looks very dashing, but these two match a little too much for me to think it was a smart idea to plonk them next to each other. Obviously they HAVE to, at some point, but some forethought might have avoided this monochromatic visual. Even her hair blends.

The jumpsuit itself that she’s wearing isn’t unattractive, but it’s also not the platonic ideal. Something about how the crotch is creasing makes it look for a hot second like separates, and the pattern looks like she just crawled out of the tar pits. I also think it’s a touch long? At least we see her feet, although I think this might have been more chic tapered with high strappy sandals. Then again, not every pant can be cut that way. I’ve admittedly lost track of what to DO with the pants that aren’t. Too high looks silly, too long eats your feet; this length pools on the ground a little. It seems like a VERY precise, hard-to-nail target.

She went a bit nuttier on Fallon:

Elle Women In Hollywood Fugs and Fabs: Black and White


Turns out I had missed Shailene Woodley. Also, I could see Jennifer Lawrence in this exact outfit. Are they friends yet? They should be.

MTV Movie Awards Fug or Fab: Shailene Woodley in Isabel Marant


This is the moment where I lose faith in all the math that I ever learned, because if Shailene Woodley can take those pants and toss them in here and add them up into something I don’t hate, then how can I trust 1 + 1 = 2 anymore?

Fugs and Fabs the Cover: Recent UK Magazines


Shall we eyeball some recent covers out of the UK? Where, for what it’s worth, I LOVE THE MAGAZINES. Half of them give you gifts! Half of them are wee, purse-sized little books of delight! Some of them are REALLY TRASHY (heat)! And then there is my favorite of all the glossy monthlies, Tatler, for which I pay an absurd fee to have delivered to my home and which I HAVE NEVER REGRETTED. They once had a whole sidebar about ridiculous British names that caused me and Heather to worry that The Royal We didn’t have a sufficiently crazily-named character and one of our major players is named after a font. It recently had an article about aristocratic menageries of yore which included a photo of a lemur (!) named Mah-Jongg (!!) on a deck-chair (!!!) OF SOMEONE’S YACHT! IT’S THE BEST.

Join me, won’t you?

Fug or Fab the Cover: Shailene Woodley on Elle, April 2015


Well, it’s striking enough.

Shailene Woodley, Elle April 2015

On the nitpicking note, I like it better when Elle just leaves its masthead spaced normally and doesn’t care how the cover model splashes over it. Scrunching the two Ls on either side of her head is distracting, especially the way they made it look like her arm is looped around the one on the right. I also think it looks like a mistake, rather than a Young or Wild or Free decision, to have the yellow words cut off on the sides.

As for the photo… look, you knew I wasn’t going to love the bathing suit. Why is there a patent-leather belt on it? Why are there bathing suits that are allergic to being worn in actual watery conditions? What’s more: If the top only even REMOTELY looks like it’s in the right place because her arms are over her head, imagine how it must fall down when she lowers them. The expression on her face says, “I know. This would not have been my choice either.” She clearly gave it what she could, but honestly, the inside photo is way more striking to me:

Well Played, Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren (and a Variety of Dudes)


In which a whole bunch of Shailene’s current and former (and former AND current) co-stars come out and look handsome standing next to her. (Although I think she looks pretty swell all on her own, too.)

Fug or Fab: Shailene Woodley in Emilia Wickstead


There are two thousands reasons this should not work:

'Die Bestimmung - Insurgent' German Premiere

The matching slits, the wide expanse of torso, the fact that — technically speaking – Shailene’s look shares a color story with a fried egg. But, believe it or not, I like it. I don’t know if it’s because her shoes are AWESOME or because she’s got the right attitude to pull this off or because The Presence of Theo James is a hugely mitigating factor, but I feel warmly toward this.
