Fashion Fug


I like Nicole Richie.

But has she always been so reminiscent of Judith Light? I’m just asking.

    I strangely like the outfit (though maybe not all the rings), but there is something from the neck up that isn’t working with it. Maybe it’s the bangs and the too-pale lipstick.

    Well that is just eerie.

    Also a bit young Heather Locklear.

      A “young” Heather Locklear? Try Heather Locklear now! The lady in this photo is at least 60 years old.

    You’re so right! Hair and 80s jackets!
    I like Nicole Richie since Chuck.

    I honestly love this outfit. It wouldn’t work on most people, but she rocks the shit out of it. In the words of T-lo, WERQ!

      I like it, too. Like you say, most people couldn’t pull this off, but I think she’s doing it.

        What! I looked at this and thought they were joking and this was someone else. She looks 47!

    She looks like a coat hanger. Eat, girl!

    No one should ever stand that way.

    No. No no no ohhhhh NO.

    Has anyone here seen Nicole and the Hilton girl together lately? I’m getting some heavy bad-behavior-flashbacks …

    I saw Linda Evans, but maybe Judith Light is closer. In any case, I hate those pants. Pants? Whatever those are.

      When I first looked at the photo I thought, “Damn, Linda Evans looks GOOD!” Then I realized this was supposed to be Nicole Ritchie. Has she had work done? I can’t remember her needing anything.

      Look out, Heather!

      She’ll call you a name and throw you in the pool!

        Totally Linda Evans, with a soupcon of Farrah Fawcett: the Centerfold years.

    I see a touch of Donna Mills, also?

    You know? I kind of like this. I know I shouldn’t. I kind of want the sequins to extend all the way around the “pants” (using the term loosely), even though I know there may be some larger issues I should be fixating on…

    I can’t believe you are all giving her a pass on the bejeweled tights … focus, people, FOCUS! These things are awful … I don’t even what to know what else is going on under the jacket.

    Seconding the opinion that something in the cranial vicinity is throwing this look off by a touch. Maybe smokier eyes or a darker lip? Sleeker hair?

    I’m afraid I sort of love those leggings. Agree that the sequins should wrap all the way around though. I mean, if you’re going to go magpie-bait, go FULL magpie-bait, yes?

    what has she (had) done to her eyes/cheeks/mouth/nose?!

    Cirque de Soleil with Special Guest Star Krystle Carrington.

    Honestly, how old is she supposed to be? Is she even 30 yet? She needs to drop of couple of decades quickly.

    She looks so tired that maybe she’s standing that way in a effort to keep from falling over.

    I dunno; I think she looks a little more Goldie Hawn-ish or possibly latter-day SMG-ish here. Neither comparison is flattering. Isn’t Richie still in her 20s? Why does she want to look like some middle-aged woman slumming at a Thalians event?

    Whoa. That’s unfortunate. I did not even recognize her. I thought OH who is this lively looking 50-something? What is going on here????

    I saw Linda Evans too :D I was like DYNASTY, yes!

    I love Nicole so I usually give her a pass but the bangs, ugh.

    another vote for Linda Evans. Where’s Yanni?

    I think the problem is that, I believe, she has naturally dark, curly hair. Usually a color close to your natural state actual looks best, as much as I wanted lighter, straighter hair myself. This color doesn’t bring out her skin tones and sort of looks straw-like. Then she could keep the outfit and go with a little brighter lipstick, and I’d like. Why do I like shiny, pink tights? Is this a character flaw? I know why I like the blazer–oversize and it’s pink. I am in 80s heaven. Just because you can bleach your hair, doesn’t mean you should.

      I agree- the fried, bleached out, unflatteringly cut hair is the main culprit. It makes her look old and 80′s (not in a fun, retro way).

    At first glance my thought was “(gasp!) Olivia Newton-John!)

    She’s got a really unique kind of beauty, but this look isn’t her best. I always thought she looked good w/ the longer, darker hair. Looks like too much bronzer/bad makeup/damaged hair. It’s all strangely monochromatic, and not in a good way.

    Hah! I am totally enjoying these comments! Soooooo accurate and funny! But I saw Judith Light!

    i think she should just always stay pregnant. she looks phenomenal whilst prego. it also enhances her fashion sensability. and her children are adorable. cheers to getting knocked up in 2012.

    First with the Reese Witherspoon cover and now this- the Fug Girls need a feature called Who The Sam Hill Is This Supposed To Be, Really?

    The GHOST of Light/Evans, maybe.

    The one-sided spangled tights have me flummoxed. Did she see these in a paperdoll book and hand them to the designer, who executed them just in time for the event, so now she’s all “Stonehenge”d and has to use little people stand against the wall all the time?

    From the neck down, I totally, TOTALLY dig this look. From the neck up, girlfriend, get some sleep.

    Judith Light, SMH. Now I can not UNSEE!

    The stance and leggins are reminiscent of the creature from Ghostbusters who shoots electric fire from her fingers and says, “Are you a god?”

    I was wondering if Judith Light or Joan Van Ark had gotten some really great work done!

    She is much too skinny. If it’s true that the camera adds ten pounds, and she looks this stick-like in the picture – how thin is she in person? That can’t be healthy!

    I told you not to put Linda Evans in the dryer on “high!”

    I like this especially the pants – she does look tired/pale/too blonde though but I love her!

    I like the pants, but dislike everything else! And, girl needs to go back to brunette pronto!

    I can see the Krystle Carrington in this, AND the Judith Light. But my first instinct was Penny Marshall. Regardless: SCARY.
