Emma Fugberts


I’m tired of hating jumpsuits. That doesn’t mean I’m going to soften on them; just that, like leggings, I’m running out of emotional energy to deal with them. Now every time I see one, I just want to go lie down and hope Jessica writes about it instead.

I mean, look at it. That thing makes her lower half look enormous. They’re not pantaloons, they’re pantaballoons. And the rosette unfolds as if she knifed herself in the belly. There’s disliking a bleedin’ jumpsuit, and disliking a jumpsuit that actually looks like it’s bleeding. I score on both fronts, as it happens.

    I think she looks fantastic from the waist up! That bottom is FUGLY, though!!! By the way, I’m wearing leggins right now, in public, and I’m very comfortable!

    The pants part of that fugsuit look like jodphurs!

    Ugh. Heather you summed up my feelings on the jumpsuit topic exactly. I am also weary of asking the following never answered question: Why are they still trying to make Emma Roberts happen?

      No no, you spelled her name wrong. It should be spelled N-E-P-O-T-I-S-M Roberts.

    To be fair, I too would stab myself in the gut if I were wearing this.

    So, leggings eventually wore me down. I did NOT wear them as pants, but I did wear them under a short tunic dress, and I felt okay with that. The huge difference between leggings and jumpsuits to me is that leggings can look good. I mean, when they aren’t worn as pants, they’re fine.

    But jumpsuits?! They look so terribly disgustingly unflattering on everyone. EVERYONE. If super models and skinny actresses and skinny want-to-be-famous starlets all look terrible and fat in them, why do they still exist?? They make me incredibly angry.

    All that fabric on the bottom is an odd contrast to the no-fabric on the top. I don’t even hate the sleevelessness and she’s not showing her sternum or anything; it just looks unbalanced.

    SHE WORE THIS TO THE OPERA?!? I’m offended on so many levels.

      My thought exactly … but she was punished … that swirly red pinwheel must have been killing her by the time La Traviata was over.

    I think she looks pretty and polished from the waist up. To be fair, I think this is one of the better jumpsuit outings we’ve seen.

    I can’t help but feel that this is a weird homage to Minnie Mouse, and it’s disturbing.

    Jumpsuits are flattering to no woman. And this, THIS! has a fallen, frumpy crotch thing going on.
    No mirrors in your house?

    If you all hate jumpsuits, (my feelings are I want to like them because they’d be so “practical,” but they just don’t come together in a flattering way too often), then I’ll go on my strapless rant. While not as bad as MANY I’ve seen, I hate outfits that make me nervous, like one good sneeze and the whole thing goes. or the top is barely hanging on.

      What is practical about a jumpsuit? How do you pee in those things?

      They’re like pants that cover your boobs, so you only have one thing to put on Yay! Except for the part where you have to pee or want to look nice…

    On a positive note, her skin looks nice, and I don’t see any tattoos. So she’s got that going for her.

    I generally don’t hate jump suits on principle, everything doesn’t have to cling to you to be attractive. But I don’t really think most of these celebrity girls pull if off.

    It looks like her crotch starts 2 feet below her bellybutton and her thighs are about 5 inches long. Flattering? No. Hilarious? Maybe.

    Although I’ve never worn a jumpsuit out in public, I do admit to trying one on (don’t judge–it was a long time ago), I always thought the idea of having one piece of clothing seemed like a good idea. You don’t have to match your top to your skirt, you don’t need hose, just pull on one piece. Sort of like overalls or babies’ rompers. It’s just that the idea doesn’t always look so good.

      Nope, they are of the devil. Back in the ’80′s and early 90′s lots of us left the house wearing those things and I can guarantee they are not convenient. Most especially so in the ladies’ room. Olympic athletes, military pilots, infants, and mechanics are the only ones who get to wear all-in-one suits. The athletes for the increase in aerodynamics; pilots because–actually I don’t know why military pilots wear onesies, but I’m not taking on the Department of Defense; infants to keep their little bellies warm; and mechanics (or others with dirty jobs) over their real clothes to keep them from getting destroyed.

    You know it’s bad when your outfit makes it look like you have a saggy butt… From the front.

    As far as jumpsuits go, it’s really not that bad. I still think they’re fug though. And while I’m here can someone explain Emma Roberts to me? I really don’t understand why she’s famous. She’s just … not v. interesting.

    Girl needs a stylist, and some color besides “Seppuku Red.”

    She always looks limp. I’m guessing her aunt’s shadow is pretty hard to stand in, but come ON. Be yourself- a pretty, 21 year old blonde starlet. Shine!

    I am in the minority. I actually like jumpsuits….IF (and that is a big IF) they are well-designed and fit properly. Yes, it is a bit of a pain to pee when you are wearing a jumpsuit, but high heels are a pain to walk in and I think most of us spend more time each day walking than peeing and no one is even CONSIDERING banishing heels, right? To me, the pee excuse is lame. So you have to take off half of your outfit to pee and have to be careful it doesn’t get dirty on the floor….it’s not rocket science.

    To me, the biggest deterrent to wearing a jumpsuit should be if it doesn’t fit well, because a jumpsuit has to fit you perfectly to work, and most of that has to do with the length of your torso and the length of the torso on the jumpsuit. We all differ greatly in the length of our torsos, so a jumpsuit that looks great on Woman A might look terrible on Woman B, even if they both have great figures. If a jumpsuit is too long, when you put on the top part, you’ll have the crotch hanging too low. If the torso is too short, then it will pull too much upwards and you’ll have tightness in the crotch and *ahem* your lady parts will be on display. Both of which look terrible. Emma is suffering from a crotch that is too low. In addition, she is sporting poorly designed pants that bunch oddly and look incredibly unflattering. Add in the ninja weapon for a belt and you have something truly fugly which I cannot in any way defend…even if I do, on occasion, like jumpsuits.

      Uh, actually, I don’t wear heels either. They are (or can be) lots prettier than jumpsuits in general. I often think I should buy the lovely shoes and sit on the couch admiring them on my feet. But if I actually have to stand up and walk, no thank you. I’m not buying a lifetime of orthopedic problems (in my case ADDITIONAL orthopedic problems) to satisfy my love of pretty things.

      And this is why FugNation is such a great place; we can all have different opinions and still play nicely in the sandbox!

        I shouldn’t have said “no one.” I just meant that our general society, and I would venture to say the FugGirls community, has never suggested banishing heels altogether. Good luck with your feet. May they be happy.

    I also find the sweetheart bodice aggressive. Strapless? And a jumpsuit? All it needs is sheer black lace overlay for a trifecta of fugliness.

    I saw just the thumbnail for this and couldn’t figure out why this was a fug. Her makeup looked nice and her hair looked brushed, which really is the most you can ask for when it comes to celebs. She’s even looks semi-happy!

    Then I saw the bottom and I understood.

    Disclaimer: When I had top of the line cable and was still able to get TeenNick, I loved Emma Roberts on “Unfabulous.” I also loved the “Unfabulous” theme song by Jill Sobule.

    But now it’s 2012, the economy is lousy, I don’t have the cable with all the high-numbered channels and Emma Roberts is making kind of lame movies because “Unfabulous” is just a memory. I don’t know what Jill Sobule is doing but it’s probably something cool.

    All that said, that jumpsuit sucks and I just really want Emma Roberts to try harder.

    This website, while being highly amusing in it’s descriptions remains so conventional in it’s take on silhouettes and colours that it really shouldn’t attempt to be a fashion blog. There’s something so inherently white middle-aged American woman about the take on outfits (which is understandable considering that’s exactly who’s behind it). Some of you spend too much time being hatefully judgemental about people having fun with the way they dress and not necessarily falling into the safe zone of A-line skirts and flowing ballgowns. ‘She wore that to the opera?’ Oh the horror of it all.

    It’s fun and youthful enough that I think she gets away with it.
