Fugger: Sofia Vergara

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Women in White

If it seems like we’re missing someone major in this category — like, say, one Kimberly Kardashian — it’s because she got her own post. Let’s dig into the also-rans!

Fug Pursuit: Reese Witherspoon

I don’t know why it happens that stars who get awards recognition for good performances so often follow them with crazy ones. Like when Queen Latifah was in Chicago and then was “Academy Award Nominee Queen Latifah in… Taxi.” Or, Reese Witherspoon, who was truly great in Wild, chasing it with Hot Pursuit. Which I am totally judging based on the previews to be an utterly agonizing caper. Maybe it’s just that they need the tonal one-eighty; I don’t know.

But, full marks to her and Sofia Vergara for selling the heck out of it all over the country. You can’t argue they didn’t work it. And now, finally, the LA premiere is here — presumably the light at the end of the tunnel, unless they’re flogging it overseas also — and we get this letdown:

Recent Fugs and Fabs: Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara

These two are REALLY HUSTLING for their new movie — and there’s no judgment in there; my local postal worker just asked me how my book was going, so I am not opposed to selling one’s creative product at a variety of opportunities — and I for one appreciate it. Because of OUTFITS! (Also, I enjoy that they do seem to legitimately like each other.)

ACM Awards Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else

I’d like to thank such a larger percentage of the attendees of this event for choosing a pattern. It’s so cheerful!


Fugs and Fines and Fabs: A Variety of Paleyfests

Paleyfest is, for those of you who don’t know, a series of panels featuring the casts of various popular TV shows held at the Paley Center every year. I’ve never been to one — although I did drive past the Paley Center one year while the Dallas one was getting underway and saw Larry Hagman in his ten-gallon hat, posing with Lindy Grey, and, yes, it was transcendent — but rumor has it they are very entertaining. Also, people wear outfits to them. Let’s eyeball them.

Oscars Fug/Fab Face-Off: Amy Adams vs Sofia Vergara


Another pairing you wouldn’t think would be going head-to-head. It’s a very MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch kind of day on GFY.
