Fugger: Zooey Deschanel
And speaking of, we have pictures and a wardrobe Q&A from our Sleepy Hollow set visit coming for you on Monday and Tuesday of next week. And no, they’re not sponsored, nor paid for; we just went because it sounded fun and we figured some of you would want to read all about people’s coats. Fug Nation loves a coat.
Mostly, I’m putting this up to a vote because it feels like it might be polarizing. It is not my cup of tea, but maybe my democratic impulse is a result of Kelly Osbourne’s face exploding in her eagerness to laud this.
I think if the skirt were navy, and also possibly a more straightforward fabric without any sparkles in it, the shoes and the shirt would stand out more with their elegant specialness. It needs a kick of visual interest. As it is, it all manages to run together and yet ALSO look, to me, like she threw on a fancy tee over an already-complete ballet-princess gown,. She nailed the makeup, though, which is a tougher landing to stick these days than it should be. Maybe THAT is what’s ALSO making me merciful.
Now the scuttlebutt is over the fact that they’ve chosen to make Mindy Kaling’s cover black and white, and closely cropped. (She says she loves it, and she might. But let’s get real: NO ACTRESS is going to come out and say, “yeah, man. Elle really f’ed that up, right?” They are always going to politely claim to love their cover.) But the truth is that this scandal is distracting us all from the fact that Amy Poehler looks drunk on hers, and the other two aren’t very good either.
