Cobie Smulfugs


I had no idea Cobie Smulders was in The Avengers. Even with all the appearances she’s popped up at lately, it just didn’t click. I just figured, hey, maybe people are having a Cobie moment. Because with a name like Smulders, it has to be good. … Am I the only person who hears her name and goes to a jam place? Although it also sounds like one of those mash-up names you give to the pack of people who are Mulder and Scully ‘shippers. Suddenly, I really, sincerely hope it turns out that Smulders is a stage name Cobie picked because she used to write X-Files fan-fic.

    Alright, now I’m starting to see why every dude I know thinks she’s the bees knees. Developing girl crush in 3…. 2….

      My husband Love love loves her….and I can’t even get mad at him for it. She’s just darn pretty.

    Her face looks GREAT in that Wolf Attack shot.

    I don’t know who this is, but she is just lovely. She looks like she could be Dita Von Teese’s sister. But, the only ensemble I like is pic #3. Not my favorite floral, but I like it. I think I would have liked it better in a solid or in a subtler floral since the draping is a bit more busy, but I LOVE the cut and silhouette (kind of a 30′s vibe) and it fits her beautifully. I would totally want to own this dress.

    The full-length black dress is terrible. Truly heinous. I’m a sucker for beadwork, but this is a truly unattractive pattern. It breaks my heart that someone took the time to do all of that handwork to make something so ugly. It honestly looks like someone’s dog ate black and gold crayons and then threw it all up. And, the fit is unflattering. It makes her look a bit thick in the middle (which she is not), it’s pulling in the hips, and I don’t like how we can see what’s either a bra or some kind of under piece from the side angle. Bras should be built in or shouldn’t show, and if there is flesh-colored fabric under the beaded layer, it should go all the way to the seam, not stop midway.

    I might be sold on the short blue number if she had a better bra and ditched the light blue shoes for something, say, metallic and light and strappy or even something red and strappy, but those light blue shoes alone are a ticket to enter Fug Madness 2013.

    At least she dresses to accentuate her gorgeous skin. The When Wolves Attack dress brought Erin Wasson to mind, and that’s never a good thing.

    look quick – it’s Linda Evangelista from 198X. Colbie is really cute & pretty.

    I like the blue dress, though shoes in a different colour would immensely help the overall look.

    Her name is actually Dutch, but even to a Dutch person such as myself ‘Cobie Smulders’ does NOT sound pretty

    Love her and her show. That short dress with bad shoes though — really bad. That’s a “miss” that shouldn’t be happening anymore. I think even most of us would have known not to walk out the door like that.

    I actually like everything but those shoes with the navy dress. Those are awful. I’m on board with everything else though.

    Her face is beautiful in slide 2.

      Agreed. If she went for something sleeker on her feet, the dress would work better. Otherwise, I think she’s looking great in all the shots.

    ugh, the f’ing slideshow went up backwards. I will fix.

    As fug as she may look here, it’s nowhere near as fug as they’ve been styling her on HIMYM. Barely-there makeup, ugly hair and a variety of striped tops do not make for an attractive Robin. At least they’ve had the good sense to stop giving her lines to say about how hot she is. That’d be embarrassing. I heard she recently celebrated her 30th birthday, but at least on the show, she could pass for pushing 40.

      Jill, it hasn’t gotten any better? (I’m a season behind; no live TV this year). My husband and I would burst into laughter every time Robin came on screen at some horribly unflattering top she would be stuck wearing. And she had a full season of terrible hair, though I chalked it up to having a newborn. She must have pissed off the head stylist early on.

      I couldn’t believe when I tuned in to the first episode of the season! It must take a lot of work to make someone so pretty look THAT bad. I haven’t been watching it lately. Barney in love just makes it less fun.

    I was really ready to defend all of her choices until I got to the inexplicable blue retirement village sandals.

    I love the first two dresses. I particularly love the first one and she is selling the hell out of it. It does look like a wolf attack but it’s also gorgeous. It is so possible. That last one, though. Short program, indeed.

    Smulders is in The Avengers because Whedon has had a boner for her for a very long time. He wanted her to be his Wonder Woman. As she has no personality (or dress sense, judging from these really awful, cheap-looking outfits), I question his judgement.

    I hear her name and think of “Mulder” as in David Duchovny, then a dying fire as in “smoldering” everytime I hear her name.

        I know her cousin, Smulders is her real last name. Their whole family is ridiculously good looking.

    I love everything, but the last picture’s sandals! The 1sr dress is gorgeous & sexy, the 2nd is cute & refreshing, and the 3rd is pretty & flirty… LOVE & WANT! Her hair, makeup & clutches are FABULOUS also!

    Cobie’s dad was my dentist growing up. Dr. Smulders was very real and very scary- the last name is legit.

    Love her. Love the first two dresses.

    Complete girl crush.

    I love her and I love HIMYM but she dresses like my mum and my mum is 52. She is so pretty and has such a great body but she always ends up sitting on the sensible, safe, boring side of the fence. Looking at these pics if I had to guess her age I’d say 36-38 and I’m almost certain that she’s much younger. The first dress gives her a belly she doesn’t have, the last is ridiculous and something I would have worn when I was 16 and is WAY too tight. The floral dress is ok but would have been amazing on her in a solid block colour like deep burgundy.
    She needs to get together with Jennifer Aniston and Kate Winslett to share fashion tips.

    As mentioned before- Smulders is a perfectly normal name in The Netherlands, americans can’t pronounce it properly that’s the problem.

    She is in The Avengers because Joss Whedon wrote a Wonder Woman script with Cobie in mind as the lead, but it was not picked up. He tends to use the same people over and over.
