Fug Madness Round Two: Cher Bracket, part II


(3) ANNE HATHAWAY v. (6) CHLOE SEVIGNY

There is something elegant about the fact that the only two Oscar nominees in this bracket ended up facing off. Can’t you just imagine the way they’d act if they were actually nominated for the same award? I feel like Anne would be all, “CHLOE MY SISTER SO BRAVE YOU TOUCH ME” and Chloe would just roll her eyes. Someone make this happen.

Speaking of wanting to roll my eyes:

If you’re going to have a big hissy about someone wearing something too similar to what you are wearing, and then change at the last minute, and then issue a giant public apology about the whole thing, at least change at the last minute into something good. Could I suggest:

I DESPERATELY LONG for Anne Hathaway to have worn that to the Oscars. It would have been, no joke, the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. Poor maligned Anne had was pretty hit-or-miss in terms of formal-wear, actually. For all the Great Globes Dress, and good BAFTAs frock,  there was the likes of this:

That is just a sack. And it’s not even a GOOD sack, despite being a CUSTOM sack. Additionally, if you have a custom sack ready to go for the parties, and you decide you can’t wear your first red carpet dress choice, why wouldn’t you swap over to Custom Sack? I am just devastated, frankly, that Anne didn’t let the Rachel Zoe Project cameras film her, because this would be an amazing finale.

I also kind of wish she had worn this instead:

Because it is hilarious. Apparently I am all about getting Freaky Friday with this ladies. But seriously, can’t you totally see Chloe working this musty Valentino?

And wouldn’t it have been exciting if Anne Hathaway had worn this to the Oscars?

THAT really would have gotten people talking about her.

And can’t you just see Chloe waking up one morning and thinking, “yeah. Tear-away tulle skirt. It’s the name of my new band AND my new aesthetic direction”:

And didn’t Anne make a tragic misstep by going the entire awards season without trying to make a jumpsuit happen?

And while I think Anne’s pixie cut is the best thing that’s happened to her head in a long time, if only she’d gone for this look:

Next time, Hathaway. Think about it.

Of course, before voting we invite you to take a look through the archives of each illustrious actress: Anne Hathaway, Chloe Sevigny.

(2) KAT GRAHAM v. (10) ZOSIA MAMET

I also think Kat Graham could be talked into sporting some of Zosia’s looks. While I WISH Zosia would model some of Kat’s. Can’t you just see this standing outside the Letterman Dumpster?

Because I think that would be major. And I think Kat Graham could EASILY pop up at an event wearing something like this:

Well, maybe without the shirt underneath. Kat Graham likes to keep it a little sexy. Sexy, and a little wacky — hence, say, the bra-top formal wear, and the Denise Huxtable shirt dress, and the Victoria’s Secret Meets Grunge ensemble, and that time she sort of dressed like Diana Ross if Diana Ross had been attacked by really awesome wallpaper . Which is why we love her. Who else would have the stones to bring us this?

And this:

And also this:

Sure, she looks nuts at least three-quarters of the time, but at least she’s having fun. Zosia may also be having fun – it seems like that should be the legal requirement for bearing a name that has a Z in it — but she rarely looks like it.

Like, oh my god WHO DIED?

And even when her outfit SHOULD BE sort of wacky fun, she looks all Les Miserables about it:

DOLL. You cannot sport a 60s mini-muumuu in a pattern last seen inside a Braniff airjet and not at least try to look sassy in it. Look to Kat Graham:

She’s wearing a highlighter, and she’s never been happier.

    CHL-OE, CHL-OE, CHL-OE. I live for her. So divine is her fug. She is a true fug treasure. Never change, Chole, never change. I’m still mad at Anne for CAMPAIGNING FOR HER LIFE for that damn Oscar and sartorially blowing her big night with those ugh gowns but she cannot beat the fug glory that is The Sev.

    Zosia wins it for me because if you gonna wear the fug then work the fug. She doesn’t believe in her fug. Kat believes in her fug, she commits to her fug, and she wears her fug with attitude. Zosia shrugs at her fug and mutters, “Eh”. Zosia FTW.

    At least Anne Hathaway gets it right occasionally. Chloe Sevigny’s fug consistency is unparalleled.

    Chloe always brings it, even if “it” is the crazy.
    And I don’t think I could stomach another tearful-yet-humbleproud acceptance speech from Anne if she were to win this year’s Fug Madness.

    I always want Chloe to go far and she always runs up against stiff competition. She should demolish Anne. That haircut, argh.

    Kat vs. Zosia is the case of the smiling fug. Kat’s fug is extreme, but she enjoys it. I can’t help but enjoy it in return. Zosia, smiling would’ve made you a lower seed. Smiling would keep you out of the Sweet 16. Next time, smile.

    How can Anne be losing?!? She won a best actress Oscar in a dress that looked like an 8 year old had stitched it for her ten minutes before the show started! Then she changed into a blue potato sack for the after party! That should have been her crowning achievement, but she looked ridiculous. For that alone she should cream anyone who comes up against her. Blowing it at the biggest party of the year when you are a the center of attention surely should be worth the fug madness crown!

    It’s too early in the voting for the choices to be THIS difficult already.

    Chloe bring the fug like no other, but Anne’s horrendous choices were so visible. Almost every terrible thing she wore was 1. at a fancy event and 2. at a fancy event where she was winning awards. She wore those things knowing she was going to be the center of attention. I think that deserves to win.

    I had to vote for Zosia just because she looks glum, unkempt and inappropriately tailored. You’re young, pretty, talented and on a hit show – let us know you’re happy.

    Zosia might consider pharmaceutical intervention. And perhaps I’m just getting old, but I have a place in my heart for The Sev regardless of what she wears.

    This first matchup was truly a case of the Hathahate backlash whipping me around so far I ended up voting for the Sev. Not that the Sev didn’t earn it, but like so many of you, I’m just so tired of Hathaway’s face that I can’t send her further. Whereas the second matchup was tougher. Yes, Kat’s brand of crazy redefines “blinding headache”, but she seems so nice anyway! Z.Mam always looks so grumpy in her drab drabness. Grumpy “wins” for me.

    • jerkygirl

      “Z. Mam” is my favorite shortened celeb name of all time, for real!!! :D And I voted for her too because Kat looks like she’s having fun (a highlighter with Lisa Frank-y boots!!! My inner 12 year old from 1984 is so jealous right now) whereas Z. Mam (Z. MAM) looks all cranky and the clothes are argh-horrible.

      Had to vote for Sev over Hathaway, for pretty much the same reason. It seems like natural, from-the-heart fug from her, while Anne’s seems calculated and forced to me. I don’t know. Those awful pseudo-dominatrix boots she wore to that one thing didn’t look like they belonged anywhere NEAR her, let alone on her. If that makes any sense.

        It’s possible the Sev could go all the way this year, the one year I didn’t have her winning it all (that she was in contention) – depending, of course, on who J.Biebs faces in coming matches. She is, as someone below alluded to, a Lifetime Champion of Fug.

    Anne should win based on the sole fact that the world was her oyster fashion wise this year. And she failed, failed miserably. The fact that she opted out of a gorgeous dress because of girlish ridiculousness is enough to vote her in.

    I kind of want the Sev to win the whole shebang, because she’s in the vein of winners I find charming rather than irritating, honestly. Like, you can’t just say “My God, Chloe, why on earth are you wearing a badly-tailored Custom Sack to the Oscars?” because there’s no universe where she would EVER be that mild, and I find wacky fashion, even if bad, to be better than badly executed stodgy fashion.

    Also, I mostly just want Anne Hathaway to GO AWAY for a while; I suspect she’s a terrible person to be around in real life (the diva-fit over the Oscar dress is what sold me on that) whereas I kind of really, really want to get a drink with the Sev. It’s a terrible reason to vote for the Sev’s fug as better, but I’ll own it.

    I voted for Zosia & Anne. Kat & Chloe both seem to have fun with their fashion. And yes, they are both crazy in different ways. Anne seems to take herself way too seriously, which is why her misses are worse for me. And Zosia just never looks happy…fashion should be fun!

    The only reason I voted for Anne was because she probably had endless designers begging her to wear their outfits for the Oscars and she picked THOSE TWO?!?! I apologize for the all caps, but that Prada dress makes me want to yell in frustration.

    I know!!! I really thought I was going to vote Anne, but I just couldn’t vote against the Sev. (Plus I secretly really like that “musty” dress of Anne’s. I think it’s gorgeous and she looks gorgeous in it. Then again, I also like Sev’s mirror dress. Crap, I may not actually be qualified to vote!!)

  25. Lynne

    Wow. That highlighter dress in Kat Graham’s last shot… I think I need to lie down for a minute. How bright was that thing in real life? I like Kat slightly more than Zosia only because she’s getting such a damn kick out of everything. Zosia seems overwhelmed and I just want to give her a hug.

    Chloe is royalty in Fug Nation. Long may she reign.

    Chloe Sevigny makes me happy. There, I said it. I voted for her because there’s an art to her Fug (that crazy industrial-mirrorball dress is kind of fetching, as was the gold-American-Express-cards dress another woman wore years ago), and because she’s wacky and forthright, and because I saw her on Louie and she rocked it out.

    I did not vote for Anne, despite the Chapel Train of Death Chiffon, because I’m just sort of tired of looking at her. She’s no fun.

    And speaking of fun: I voted for Kat because I’m in a mood, though I know full well the Mamet kid wins on all counts. Kat always looks happy. She always brings it, to the point where I think I might need to have that insane totem-pole dress.

    Zosia’s just kind of a surly coathanger, and what fun is that? Happy things, Fug Nation! HAPPY THINGS ONLY. <3

    Chloe. But I just have to say, my wedding dress had a tear-away tulle skirt. In fact, the top was remarkably like Anne’s, except white–above the knee, solid, even the netting at the shoulders. Of course, that was in 1996. So Anne TOTALLY stole my wedding dress.

  35. Alyssa

    My original comment disappeared! :(

    I voted Anne & Zosia. Reason being while Chloe & Kat do wear outrageous outfits, they at least have fun with their fashion! Anne is seriously trying to be fashionable, and her fails are bigger for me for that reason. I think Chloe knows she’s ridiculous. And Zosia looks dreadfully terrified to be in any of those outfits.

    The SEV has a personal style, whether or not it’s cracked out. She always looks like SHE feels like a million bucks. Every time I see Anne it seems as if she’s paying someone to dress her like someone else’s idea of cutting edge elite fashion, instead of just putting her in things that look great on her. There’s NO WAY she left the house in that blue lunch bag with the gold lame neck attachment without misgivings…
    Go SEV, wear your mirrors with aplomb!

    Chloe, because she looks unwashed. Zosia because she looks like the next generation of “American Gothic,”

    Zosia just looks so damn … I don’t know, sad’s not the right word, but… morose maybe? When it comes to two people who are equally fug but in two different ways (as random example, colorful-flamboyant Nicki Minaj vs whichever-Olsen-twin-looks-baggier), I always vote for the frumpy person vs the one who looks like s/he’s actually having fun. So, Kat, you’re pretty fuggy, but at least you look like you’re having fun with it. Zosia looks like she just wants to go back home and hide in bed.

    Anne because, as in many things, she seems to be trying so hard, yet still… just not quite hitting it out of the park as someone with that many stylists and designers should be.

    Kat at least manages to look like a young, attractive (if slightly wackadoo) women. Zosia looks frumpy and old and awkward.

    True, true about Anne’s wardrobe being a complete waste. I agree that there had to be 100s of other dresses for her to chose from, no alterations needed. But I realized something incredible during my self-debate. Sev is The OG (original gangster) here on GFY: she’s worked these looks for years. Years of unflattering-to-the-ankle shoes, oddball lengths/cuts/fabrics so much so that Sev’s look is becoming the norm. Have you reflected upon her portfolio? She’s pushed her look so long, we’ve begun to accept it and even emulate it! For that, she deserves to be Fug Champ Supreme for/of all time.

    I know Zosia Mamet always looks like she’s posing for her mug shot and I hate that she does that. But the power of a gold lame (can’t make the accent mark work on my keyboard) bra and undone overall bibs added to those hooves that Kat is wearing in that first picture is undeniable.

    Over the years, Chloe has evolved from annoyingly pretentious to charmingly eccentric. Her commitment to Fug has elevated her to a national treasure. Anne, alas, is still at the annoying stage, so I had to vote for Chloe; I want my Fug to surprise and delight.

    I cannot BELIEVE that Kat Graham is not dominating- everything she wears is a terrible delight, and she wears it all with such flair. I’ll admit that Zosia Mamet looks WORSE, but Fug Madness is not about looking worse, it is about looking Sensationally Worse, Fabulously Worse, and Yes, Please, Even More Worse!

        Tess and elisamaza – I completely agree! I can’t believe Zosia is doing so well – she just strikes me as someone with no sense of style who wears charity-shop castoffs, but Kat?! I mean, check out the outfit with the gold bra and DUNGAREES – how can anyone vote against that??
        I was hoping to see Kat go far – I think she could crush quite a few more contenders..

    This was so tough for me. Kat’s “Happy” fug vs. Zosia’s “Depressing” fug.

    I think happy fug lulls me into smiling, which feels good, and I get distracted from the fug. Depressing fug just pulls me down, and it doesn’t feel good, and I am more apt to vote for it.

    What to do?

    I decided to compare their worst outfits, and I felt less conflicted. I voted for Kat.
