Fugger: Uma Thurman

Fugs and Fabs: Celebrities at the Tom Ford A/W 2016 Runway Show

This show happened on the same day as Yeezy Season 4, which was by all accounts a nightmarish shitshow of Kanyepic proportions. The great Booth Moore (formerly of the LA Times) wrote a piece for The Hollywood Reporter contrasting the two experiences, in which she pegs the only common ground as “celebrity”:

The presentation raised eyebrows — and concerns. It was late, as in nearly two hours late, leaving guests crowded behind barricades in the afternoon heat. After the presentation began, the models suffered even more; some passed out. Another hobbled so badly in her boots on the final walk, it was like watching someone being tortured. Finally, Bergdorf Goodman fashion director Bruce Pask came to her rescue and helped her along. [...] Cut to midtown at cocktail hour. Ford set up his show to mimic an Oscar party, complete with a red carpet, and a seasoned Golden Globes vet working 22 cameras to film the runway show for a live stream at TomFord.com, moving seamlessly from runway to reaction shots from the crowd.

Tom Ford also got a MUCH starrier turnout, which speaks volumes about what Kanye’s celeb buddies are really willing to tolerate. I’m wondering if we’re at the point where the media should simply decline to attend future Yeezy shows. Nothing would rankle the attention-hungry more than every single media outlet sending its regrets, leaving Anna Wintour alone on a bench, cheek-to-buttock with the standing-room rabble brought in to fill seats.

Cannes Mostly Well Played: Uma Thurman in Schiaparelli at the amfAR Gala

This pink was a signature Elsa Schiaparelli color:

And Uma is rocking it. I am not totally convinced by the heart — if you told me her kids made it for her, I’d believe you — but something about it does make the single strap seem more purposeful and less potentially silly. Do I wish it were a brooch made of actual JEWELS? Yes. I will always wish for jewels. But it’s tough to stand out, and bring Major Movie Star impact, to an amfAR event that’s traditionally all models and transparency and crotches. Perennial attendee Sharon Stone, sadly absent this year, often resorts to something that’s ultra-bonkers. Uma went the other way, and cruising in wearing shocking pink, those earrings, and that posture is a rather excellent strategy. It says, “I don’t care if you look, but I’ve seen to it that you will anyway.”

It is to their credit that so few of these women look like brides.

Cannes Fugs and Fabs: The Chopard Party

I think Fan BingBing may have won this round. And I may be biased because I love her.

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!
