Fugger: Zoe Saldana

Fug the Covers: Zoe and Zooey on Lucky

Let’s start with the one I rather like:

That sweater is super cute, super cheerful, super colorful, and super springy. There is nothing particularly revolutionary nor interesting about any of the articles promised within, but at least this hint of spring doesn’t make me want to stab myself because we’re still stuck in the chilly wilds of February.

Here is the Z for whom the cover efforts were less successful:

Golden Globes Fug Carpet: Zoe Saldana

This one is such a head-scratcher that we’re at dandruff-warning Defcon 1.

Clearly Cinderella’s mice have been hitting the absinthe again.

The best part is that on the red carpet, she somewhat self-aggrandizingly noted that Prabal Gurung made this and told her that “only Zoe could wear it,” and while I am sure it’s difficult on the ego to turn down a dress that the designer thinks is a cherished and magical personal gift, I choose to interpret her comments as, “You guys, I was backed into a corner, WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO?” I think I speak for us all when I say the answer is, “Spill water on it and then tell him somebody’s assistant was fired for clumsiness.”

Here is the back:

Casual Fuggerday: A Non-Casual amfAR Gala

Our cups ranneth over yesterday, so we’re getting a dressier Saturday slideshow than usual. I just couldn’t NOT share the back bow. It’s like she’s wearing the masthead of this Web site, except not in a fun way.

Fugs and Fabs: The Golden Globes Nominations

Yes, there are outfits to discuss, but we can ALSO dish the nominations themselves, because if Fug Nation loves anything, it’s an awards bash and lamenting those who are snubbed.

For me, things of interest are: Zero nominations for Homeland, which, although I still love those actors, is the kind of show/ensemble that felt like it would get nominated every time just for existing; Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) getting a deserved nod where the Emmys failed her; Josh Charles popping up in the Supporting Actor category for The Good Wife in its best-ever season and one in which he’s been tremendous; only one Modern Family cast nomination, making welcome room for new blood in those categories; Michael Sheen and Masters of Sex getting some love; Rob Lowe getting a nod for THAT FACE OMG THAT FACE in Behind The Candelabra; Hayden Panettiere returning again in the Supporting Actress category as Nashville‘s only representative (and rightly; Deacon hasn’t had enough to do this season and Rayna is very one-note); the sadness of no final-season love for 30 Rock; nothing for some of the heartbreaking acting in Masters of Sex from people like Allison Janney, whose work on that show has revealed a softness and depth that is astonishing from someone who does acerbic and snappy so brillliantly; the oddness of acting nod for Andy Samberg on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, when the best things about that show are Terry Crews and Andre Braugher; and I’m sure there are way more but I’m tired and you’re bored of me already.

Anyway, chat it up in the comments, and in the meantime let’s hit the slideshow for some clothes talk.


AMAs Fug or Fab Carpet: Zoe Saldana

Notes on a Fug or Fab:

– Insert comment on excellence of her head/face region; bonus points for a Center Stage joke and double-bonus for a Crossroads reference, but demerits for Avatar.

– Question the merits of the patent-leather headband being passed off as a strap

– Inquire about the pillowcase stapled to her hindquarters

– Wonder if the dress itself is otherwise pretty

– Wonder if the dress itself looks like counting sheep in the night sky

– Wonder if you are, in fact, asleep yourself

– Wonder why you don’t have better hair on your own head if you are asleep and this is a dream

– Conclude this is not a dream

– Take a look at it from another angle

Casual Fuggerday: Zoe Saldana

Can we just take a moment on this Saturday to reflect on how damn groovy Zoe Saldana looks, just walking down the street, minding her own business:

Those jeans are the pants version of Karlie Kloss’s bob: I want them desperately but I know the results would not be nearly as good. Life is pain, buttercup.
