Fug or Fab: Camilla Belle


fug-or-fab

Remember when they were trying to make Camilla Belle here happen?

Like, she was in that movie about a girl with great eyebrows who chased dinosaurs, or whatever 10,000 B.C was about, and then she dated a Jonas for a while — remember the Jonas Brothers? I heard on the radio yesterday that one of them has a new single, called “Just in Love,” but the way Ryan Seacrest was pronouncing it, I thought it was called “Justin Love” and it was a plea for Justin Timberlake to stop acting and start making another album — and now she’s in a whole bunch of other movies that sound terrible, and, frankly, I think the best way for her to REALLY help make herself happen would be, in fact, if she dated Justin Timberlake.  YES that just came to me like a heavenly vision.  Date JT, and maybe get into a big old fight with poor Jessica Biel (start writing insults based on the fact that J Biel now only makes movies about major holidays, Camilla — that will stick in the old girl’s craw), and then start wearing clothes that are either INCREDIBLY HIDEOUS or totally gorgeous, not stuck in the netherworld between fug and fab like this number.

    I have no idea why I’m defending Camilla–but she was also in The Ballad of Jack and Rose, remember? With Daniel Day Lewis? And she’s got some respectable-sounding movies coming out. I think 10,000 BC was perhaps a sort of aberration? Anyway, she’s so pretty it’s hard to tell whether I approve of her attire. I’m inclined to like this, though. On her.

      <3 <3 <3 The Ballad of Jack and Rose. Such a weird and yet beautiful movie. She was crazy good in it too. And DDL? Oh yes. He will be mine. *swoon*

    Cave woman during a night out. Her face and hair are very pretty though.

    GFY Ladies -

    I know the blog is a money-making effort. No problem with all the ads in the right column or even the occasional advertising wallpaper backgrounds. Celebuzz at the top? Whatevs. FB box? As my platform apps are all turned completely off, it’s just white-space for me. I know the size-changing top banners are usually only for a few days, so although they really mess up the surfing experience, I haven’t complained. It’s the price we pay for awesome content, and I know that as an Internet consultant.

    But a line was just crossed. Because I HATE the new “shop the outfit” banners at the bottom of the pictures. Sometimes I click on the pictures to enlarge them (a several click process as it is, after the redesign) – I don’t want additional advertising or even to accidentally click on the advertising.

    Are these really necessary?

      Those might be specific to the web browser you’re using. I don’t (nor have I ever) seen these banners you’re talking about it. (I just went through several pages looking for them and can’t find a single one.)

        I’m on a Mac with Chrome (all up to date). But I just installed AdBlockPlus and they’re gone. (I’m still new to my Mac and Chrome extensions – my old Windows machine and Firefox were extension-filled.) If you have an “adblock” service, maybe they didn’t show up.

        The ads in questions are from Luminate – they were showing up at the bottom of each picture and if you moused over the image, the ad expanded to cover the bottom of the image. Not something easy to ignore.

        On the bright side, the ads are only showing on the Fug or Fab or Well-Played posts. At least the Fug Girls don’t want us buying Katie Price’s non-outfit.

      Unfortunately, in order to keep GFY alive (it’s an expensive operation, from photo clearances to hosting and whatnot) we have to try new things. People have this impression that we’re lighting our stoves with $100 bills, and we’re not. This is something we thought might be useful to people who like certain items on a dress, but it might not stay — but honestly, we’re doing the best we can. Thanks for your understanding.

        I want you to light your stoves with $100 bills! Especially whilst wearing turbans! Do what you must, ad-wise!

        Love,

    Not a fan of the skirt part of the dress…. but she’s so pretty! Like sentence stopping pretty that she kind of pulls it off. I think I’d love the top if it were just a top. *I* am not a fan of wedges…but that’s just a personal preference.

    The cheeto filter seems to be in evidence here. I doubt two ladies at the same event are wearing the same shade of orange.

    The fabric on this dress is probably very pretty in person, but the dress is not quite there for me. It has a very 1920′s flapper silhouette to me (which she certainly has the figure for), but there is something about the top that doesn’t look right to me. I think I would like better if it were lower cut and a wee bit looser. I don’t like how tight it is in the boobs yet how stayed and boring and high up the scoop is on the neck.

    And, is that an artful hem or did it get stuck in a shredder? I really want to look at this closer up. The shoes are cute, but not with this dress. They look too modern and casual to be paired with the dress. Had she gone with something metallic and light and strappy OR with something retro like a cute t-strap, I think I would have liked this more. Not fab, not fug…a feh outfit that could have been fab on this very pretty girl.

    It makes her body look so weird. Her body isn’t weird! :(

    And ugh, I wasn’t mad about those “Get the Look” ads until I innocently moused over an image just now and one popped up in my face. How invasive and distracting.

    There should have been a fine/meh/feh option, just a pretty boring outfit.

    Fug Girls, you have to see this movie she did called The Quiet which is like ORPHAN level terrible/unintentionally amusing. She plays a “deaf” girl who everybody decides to tell all their secrets to because she can’t hear….you can probably fill in the rest

    The lace stripe does not go with the rest of the outfit.

    Guys, I see this on every post, but seriously, for God’s sakes, download an add on for Firefox called “Ad Block” and you will NEVER SEE an ad again. It’s miraculous and will do wonders for you and will hide the ads on this page and make your general internet experience so much better. I think at this point for Heather and Jessica to keep on with this site as well as have full time jobs they need some kind of extra revenue that the ads bring, but that doesn’t mean we have to see them. AD BLOCK. Until you get that, stop whining.

    That said, um…I like Camilla Belle significantly more than Jessica Biel so I’m totally going to be a Just-illa/Camistin? shipper!

      I just found AdBlockPlus, the same thing but for Google Chrome – totally works. Thx Grant!

        both of you guys rock my world cause I wasn’t about to get off Chrome and switch to Firefox, so I downloaded AdBlockPlus – my world is forever changed.

      Thank you. I recently switched to a Mac and think Chrome works better. Hadn’t really explored Chrome extensions :D

    Yeah, love you Fug Girls, but it’s been a long day, and I really can’t deal with having to click through a bunch of ads trying to sell me shoes just to actually SEE her shoes.

    The only thing I can think of when I see her is how I saw Taylor Swift in concert and she sang the song about the actress who is “better known for the things that she does on the mattress” and I knew it was Camilla Belle and got so excited. Also I love her shoes.

    I think I get it. The orange leafy part is the tablecloth and the lacy part down the middle is the table runner. She’s in costume as an autumn inspired table!

    Scroll down fug. It starts out a bland enough tank top, kinda camo, but goes all to hell at her natural waist, gets shredded by the cats on the way past her knees, and grinds yo a halt at those dreadful espadrilles.

    I knew I’d be in the minority but I like most of this dress. I like a drop waist (hell, I’m just glad it’s not at her ribcage) and I like the brown…I don’t like the lace hukka-mukka down the front but otherwise this pleases me.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. The lace is fugly, but the rest is nice. Pretty girl.

      Hukka-mukka? witjunkie, you are a DELIGHT.
      The outfit is kind of like something that got shoved to the back of the fridge for far too long and by the time you connect it with that interesting smell you’ve been noticing, it’s trailing brown strings and planning to unionize with the the mayo.
      Fug Girls–I get the need for ads, yes I can get ad block, blah blah–but seriously, is it not even a little cringey for you to write as an option “I want her shoes” when the ad in question is for her shoes? Is that going to be a thing now?
      Sigh.

      • Jessica

        Actually, I didn’t even know the Luminate ads were even running at this point. So no, it wasn’t cringey. I didn’t know there would BE an ad for those shoes when I wrote that sentence.

        We are trying out a variety of revenue streams. GFY is a business and, like all of you guys, presumably, we need our job to make us money so we can continue to do things like pay rent and keep the business IN business.

        Heather and I try really hard to make this a good experience for the readers, but it’s a work in progress like everything else. As always, if you hate the ads, it is most effective for you to email us.

        Thanks.

        Thanks for the explanation! we all assume you girls are omniscient and forget you don’t control every little bit of space on the site. I didn’t mean to be …um…bitchier than USUAL. What a weird coincidence with the ad. Thanks again, I love this blog.

      • GFY Heather

        I also feel compelled to point out that the ad is not for her shoes — the purpose of Luminate is to say, “Hey, if you like her shoes, we found some that are similar.” We thought it might be helpful for people who like what a celeb is wearing but can’t afford $1000 wedges. That said, we’re still working through some issues. Thanks for your patience.

    I just don’t understand who she is, what she does, or why she is considered attractive. This outfit pretty much sums up my feelings about her – it’s what a girl whose name I can’t remember wore on the last day of school in 8th grade.

    I know I’ve seen her here before, but I still have no idea who she is or what she does and I really don’t care about her or this outfit! For the record, I don’t think Justin Timberlake would date a “nobody” (as in I don’t know who she is, so how is he supposed to know she even exists?)! And, I like Jessica Biel… She deserves better!

    had to comment on the new ads too…frankly, slightly amusing that they’re trying to sell the outfits from a website that is fugging them but ok

    also…she played a younger version of Sandra Bullock’s character in Practical Magic. I may be in the minority, but I like her whole ensemble.

    Don’t worry, Jessica. I did something very similar… I kept hearing on the radio how Joe Jonas was coming into the studio to promote his new song (Justin Love, I’m assuming). I spent three days wondering who the hell Jojo Ness was and why everyone was so excited about him.

    You know, I think she’d be gorgeous with her hair up. She always wears it down, and it drags. A little upward movement in her hair would lighten everything up.
