Fug Madness Is Coming!


Remember this?

Well, Fug Madness 2011 winner Taylor Momsen should enjoy the last few days of her reign, because we’re prepping to crown a new champion.  Brackets come out on MONDAY, and games begin next week (as it does every year, Fug Madness runs concurrently with the NCAA basketball tournament. They have many similarities beyond just bracketology, you know. For example, every year, a high seed will be upset by someone who really doesn’t have the strength of schedule/wardrobe to carry the title, but whose few shining moments were so, er, shiny, that they can not be ignored). But before Heather and I lock ourselves into the GFY HQ Chamber of Secrets to decide on this year’s chosen contenders, we must survey YOU, Fug Nation. Who do you think deserves to contend for the title this year. REMEMBER: Fug Madness has NOTHING to do with the celebrity’s body of work as a whole, but rather ONLY what they wore from the day after the 2011 Oscars through the 2012 Oscars (some people have a fiscal year; our year runs Oscars to Oscars). Take a look through our archives, rack your brains and weigh in, please. Who had a very good bad year?

      I’m with you. She is so cute & you think she’d be vaguely Portman-esque. But she misses so badly so often. Gennifer Goodwin, I’m figuring a strong 3 seed.

      Oh yeah, I couldn’t agree more. Julianne Moore is bad, too. So beautiful yet she fugs it up every single time.

        I love her clothes nearly all the time. I am a girly girl even though I am an old one. My career requires well tailored suits, but give me lace and ruffles and a-line skirts the rest of the time! Not everyone can do twee, but some people carry it well.

    Can I make a plea to include only contestants who aren’t wearing costumes? I prefer to judge people who are actually attempting to look good and failing. Gaga, In my opinion, Katy Perry and the like should be excluded. That said, I could see where it might be tough to draw the line.

        I’m in agreeance with you, Dave. It’s kind of like having to compare apples and oranges when you’ve got an outfit and a costume.

      • GFY Heather

        It is tough to draw the line. Our stance on this is, and has always been, that if you’re willing to be seen in public in it, then it counts.

      • erin
        0

        Totally agree. There’s a big difference between Gaga who makes a studied effort to look as fugly as possible, and Angelina who always thinks she looks fab but too often falls way short.

        I agree!

      • anny

        @GFY Gals, the only line you can probably draw is “were they actually being paid to perform when photographed in the getup in question”. I can live with that.

        (We will still have 11,638 discussions about it, but that is life.)

    • LG
      0

      I agree. WRT the line between clothing and costume, surely intent factors into it? Gaga, I imagine, does not get up in the morning and shuffle, Cher Horowitz style, through her massive closet of meat dresses and ovo-pods and plus-sign-titted sheer nurse uniforms and cloven-hoof shoes; she is clearly choosing costumes for the character of *dramatic voice* LADY GAGA. (Side note: GODS, does that sound exhausting. I think the most shocking thing she could do at this point is to be photographed in comfy jeans and a t-shirt, eating a burrito and digging coins out of her purse to buy a Coke from a vending machine.)

      Katy Perry, on the other hand, at least sometimes just wears a dress rather than costuming a persona.

      • understateddiva

        Gaga does NOT buy coke with change. Gaga is brought a coke on a platter by four men in loincloths. (apparently her persona-building worked on me!)

        Will GaGa even be in Fug Madness this year? I surprisingly don’t remember her being featured on GFY too much this past year. Ditto for Paz.

    • Alice

      Totally agree that Gaga and any picture involving people singing on a stage should be excluded because the point is to look weird.

    Ginnifer Goodwin and Christina Hendricks for their inability to dress their, quite frankly, rocking bodies.

    I think Kristen Wiig’s put together an impressive body of fug during her very busy year. Do American Idol shows count towards a Fug Year? I’ve got to think that JLo has a lot of participation in what she’s wearing, right? That’s a long way of saying, JLo!

      I half agree, half disagree with the inclusion of Jenny desde el calle. On one hand, you’re right.

      On the other hand, it’s Jennifer m-f’in’ Lopez.

      At the very least, she should narrate a couple of games.

      Ri-ri is a total no-go for me. She’s just stopped being fun for me, especially after hooking up again with Breezy. She is fug, but I seriously want to call a fug moratorium on her.

    Jessica Simpson deserves a lifetime achievement award, but this year has been spectacularly bad. Every time I see a picture of her, I think – does she have, like, an anti-stylist? Someone who says, “yessss!! that makes you look soooooo much fatter than you really are.” Someone whose goal in life was to take a pretty girl and make her the butt of fat jokes.

    There are so many to choose from I just can’t decide, I wish you would open it up to politicians wifes because I’d nominate MO but since I have to pick I’d say the most annoying ones are:

    Joan River (and her hellspawn)
    the Glee Kids (I’d love to give them some brownies laced with laxatives and then watch them perform)
    Mob Wifes (all of them)

    I’m sure I’ll think of more later

    Stella McCartney deserves a special guernsey for inflicting fugly clothes on all sorts of comers. I loathed that “illusion” dress Kate Winslet wore on the red carpet at Venice so much … when bad clothes happen to good people.

    And yes, one-off blights like Erin Wasson need to be acknowledged : that was my supreme fug moment of the last 12 months. Can there be a special eyesore award?

    Sarah Jessica Parker has had a lot of doolally moments on the red carpet : I know that was Carrie Bradshaw’s shtick, but she needs to move on from that character.

    It’s always fun to fug Katherine Heigl : she consistently gets things wrong and skews too matronly just because of dodgy styling. For worst barnet, she can contest with Elisabeth Moss.

    I love Fug Madness too.

    I’ll agree with the others who wish to include Christina Hendricks and Ginnifer Goodwin because they appear to have no clue what to wear or how to wear it.

    It matters not what Mena Suvari may or may not have worn throughout the year. She needs to be included just for looking like a tarred-and-feathered croquembouche at the Oscars.

    OK, so I know she won’t likely make it far, but because I really like her (somewhat inexplicably so) and because I like to imagine celebs getting a kick out of being in Fug Madness (and she looks like she could use a smile), I nominate: Keira Knightley. I know she isn’t a serial offender like others featured on this site, but those two lace-themed dresses she wore to the premiere of the movie she co-starred in with Aragorn were really, really atrocious. Especially this one.

    I’ll try again.
    Phoebe Price for continuing. How she still exists and soldiers-on to her daily Robertson stroll is beyond me, but I love her.
    LeAnn Rimes
    Definitely Courtney Stodden!
    Lilo – especially now, with her face full of fillers and gnarly bleached out doll hair
    SWINTON
    Everyone who ever lived at the Jersey Shore
    Kesha
    Rihanna
    Katherine Heigl, because Mooorty where’s my Jean Nate?? Getcha feet orf the coffee table!
    Janice Dickinson because she scares me
    Rumer Willis
    Tila Tequila
    Jessica Simpson because of her own clothes and the clothes she attempts to foist upon others
    Christina Aguilera – God, change out of those squelchy leggings!
    Bai Ling

    Squee! Fug Madness is my favourite time of year. Can’t wait. Excellent suggestions above. I also think Marchesa should be held accountable for crimes against fashion.

    I can’t forgive Rosanna Arquette’s globular alien menses stain. But is one blindingly spectacular fug worth a consistent (lack of) effort for twelve months? It’s a conundrum.

    This has been a really good year for bad taste, I am almost fearful of Fug Madness this year, because there has just been so much FUG, how will we choose? It’s almost like we need another bracket – in addition to Cher, Madonna, Bjork and Charo, maybe it’s time for the Gaga bracket?

    1. I had forgotten that photo of Momsen existed. Blissful ignorance indeed.
    2. I’m SO excited for Fug Madness.
    3. Lemon Breeland! And Christina Henricks for crimes against boobs.

    Ack! Please, please, please put Meryl Streep in there. Yes, she’s spectacular in so many ways – but I’m just about over the whole I-show-up-at-awards-shows-looking-like-I-just-robbed-some-old-lady’s-attic aesthetic…

    Wow, is it that time of year again?
    After looking at last year’s startlingly dated momsen pic, I wonder…
    Just how much has the fashion world revolved since then? We’ll see.

    There should be special awards like the “Marchesa award” (for those who go overboard with always the same thing), the “stella McCartney award” (for those who have no clue about the body and tayloring – Chastain??), the “Valium award” (for those who are just really really boring), etc… O boy, this could go on and on…

    Shailene Woodley
    Kristin Wiig
    Kim Kardashian
    Plus:

    Christina Hendricks, bless her, she needs tough love.

    I am so happy Fug Madness is almost here! I was *literally* just wondering when it would get here, because I love it so.

    xo fug girls!

    I definitely agree with Katherine Heigl. She looked okay as Stephanie Plum, so I know she can be prettier than for the world premiere tour of One for The Money. Also:

    The Kardashians for their awful Sears line promotion.
    Sarah Jessica Parker for setting a bad example for aging gracefully.
    Lenny Kravitz. Dude looks like a lady.
    Lemon on Hart of Dixie. Bad stereotype.
    Kelly Osbourne and Guiliana Rancic’s Hair. Their Fashion Police, they should own mirrors.
    Cee Lo Green for trying to be the new Dr. Evil.
    Anna Wintour for being so sour in every picture.

    I want to say Lohan, but it hasn’t been her clothes that have pushed me over the edge this year but THAT FACE.

    …So I’ll go with G Goodwin and Jessica Chastain.

    Everyone loves her, but Kaley Cuoco seriously does not know how to dress herself.

    I can’t believe I had to scroll through most of the comments before I saw a STELLLLLAAAA mention.

    How about a separate Stella mini bracket of the fuggiest Stella fug? I’m not sure that sentence sense. So, just go with your gut. I’m sure we are on the same page.

    I forgot my other pet peeve, besides STELLLAAA. Satin. We could do a mini bracket of wrinkly, polyestery, droopy satin dresses.

    I never knew she existed until you showed her to me. But now that I’ve seen her, I say that Cassie needs to be part of the competition.

    J-Lo (tacky, showy, age-inappropriate and too much fur, especially during the daytime, she might get a terrible shock if it turns out the whole karmic birth-rebirth cycle is true after all)
    Katherine Heigl
    Anyone from “90210″
    Chelsea Handler
    Heidi Klum (excluding gorilla costumes etc)
    Kelly Osborne – that grey and purple hair recently has been just beyond awful, she’s worn awful clothes with bad makeup that we all wish the Fashion Police would comment on, and worst of all she is on a show with other really badly dressed people passing judgement on everyone else’s clothes (and she really, really needs to open a thesaurus)

    Let’s get some guys in this:

    Tom Brady (for his hair)
    Kayne West
    Alan Cummings ( I love him, but he’s a bit whacked out fashion-wise)

    What other men hurt my eyes?

    So many fuggers to choose from.

    Kelli Osbourne
    Heidi Klum
    Nicki Minaj
    Katy Perry
    All the Real Housewives (please!)
    Wait, let’s just say all reality show women … actually, they need their own game, I think. (Except Bravo’s Tabitha – she’ll kick our collectives arses.)

    Steven Tyler for everything he wore on American Idol.

    Also, agreed on Christina Hendricks for epic failure to boob-wrangle.

    So I think we should have some mini-brackets this year:
    - the ‘underpants are not outerwear’ bracket. Self-explanatory really.
    - the ‘celebrity fashion collection’ bracket, in which we can judge not only the celebrities in the cheap-ass clothes they inflict upon us, but the clothes themselves. Mostly so I can cackle in glee at those hideous Kardashian people.
    - the ‘mutton dressed as lamb’ bracket, in which we judge outfits based both on age appropriateness and random attempts to hide signs of aging (I’m looking at you and those gloves, SJP)
    - and finally the ‘I am wearing mom jeans’ bracket, because denim has done the world a disservice this year.

    Lea Pose Too Hard Michelle

    Ginnifer Goodwin. Though mostly because of the awful hair and the moody fashion ‘come hither’ face she makes at every photo op, rather than her actual clothes.
    Erin Wasson for the rag dress.

    I would say that Leighton Meester should be a contender, but every time I look at her, I get depressed about this season’s Gossip Girl plot. I just want to forget. *sobs*
