Fug and then Fine: Kerry Washington


fug-or-fab

I continue to hypothesize that she’s pregnant and so I will continue to do until the paparazzi catch her drinking out of a bottle of champagne whilst dancing on a wheel of soft cheese with Miss Clairol smeared all over her head. RUMOR-MONGERING!

    That dress is a real scroll down fug! When it first popped up on my screen I could only see it from the waist up, and for whatever reason I pictured it as a blouse with a crisp white pencil skirt and pointy toed pumps. I thought, “Eh, it’s not my favorite top ever, but I don’t know that it deserves to be a. . . [scrolling down]. . .Dear God, NO!”

      She is all ready for the hoe-down. Grab her pardner and do-si-do.

        “OOooooook! Lahomah! Where the wind goes sweepin’ down the plains….”
        That’s the only thing I thought when I saw it.

    No, No, No, and No. I’m sorry. I wish I had better news.

    It would be a lot easier for Kerry Washington to squash pregnancy rumors (assuming she is not actually pregnant, that is) if she wasn’t everywhere, all the time.

      Well she is promoting her (addicting) show & was everywhere cause she was up for an Emmy which many people thought she would win. But if she is preg she’s not going to say anything. She’s seems very private…hence getting married to a guy who no one knew she was even dating.

    today on GMA she was wearing a loose pink shift dress. so much better than any of these outfits. that first dress could be the ugliest dress i’ve seen in a long time.

    Overexposure! I’m so tired of seeing her everywhere, I don’t care what she’s wearing.

      Perhaps she and Olivia Wilde could take a very long, very PRIVATE around the world cruise together. That would solve a lot of problems.

        Please let the boat captain be Miley!

          An OUTSTANDING plan. All overexposed celebrities will be booked on a long, slow, private world cruise. The participants would change from time to time, but the concept is the same! GO. AWAY.

          I’d nominate Miley to be the anchor.

        That is a brilliant idea. But I would definitely add Kimye and all the KKKKKKKKs to the cruise. (She can take the baby, though. AND Kanye also.)

        They would need to take Aniston with them.

      I agree wholeheartedly with every suggestion in this section, and I will donate to a Kickstarter to make it happen. I’ll double the donation if Gwyneth Paltrow is included.

    The blue is a bit hoedown for me. I feel more charitable toward the white because of my undying love of office supplies. It does look like lined paper, and that makes me happy. As far as the black is concerned, it’s too bad The Dumpster is gone. That’s where the dress belongs.

    Her face looks..off? Maybe she’s just tired. OR HAS MORNING SICKNESS.

    •  OracleKath

      Her face looks fuller…which adds to the gestating a human rumor mongering.

    I actually hate that second dress the most – the length is so awkward and it’s giving her a stumpifying effect.

    The white dress would have been cute if it had been chopped around knee length.

    Halloween has come early with that first dress!

    No offense, but she is the globe’s best dressed woman in the same manner that Paltrow is the world’s most beautiful…they are fine, but it’s obvs purely promotion.

    Good news first! Love the hair, with those lovely coppery highlight look gorgeous against her skin. In the last slide especially, not only is her skin glowing, I’m totally getting a Farrah Fawcett-inspired vibe from her with the feathered do!

    Bad news ~ Oliva Pope does not churn butter, unless it’s the President’s. Hope the writers are paying attention. They could be an entire episode based on Ghost with Kerry in Demi Moore’s role at the churning wheel. Now who wouldn’t want to see her and the Prez doing naughty things with butter to Unchained Melody?

    Someone – be it Kerry herself or her make-up person – went a little overboard on the contouring in that first slide. The dress… hoo boy.

    I’ll be the voice of dissent (except for your assessment of the first one – that was wretched): I rather like the notebook paper dress, and I Luuuurve the last one, crazy sleeves and all!

    • Maria L.

      I like crazy-sleeves also, although it may be a “relative” like, in light of the others.

    • Pauline

      I also love the last dress, especially the neck line!

    Oh dear GOD, no. You’re better than this Kerry.

    And if she is pregnant, which is a real possibility, we’ll only know when she can’t hide it any longer. She’s fiercely private. That kid will be gorgeous, and possibly the world’s worst corner back.

    I kind of….like the first one except for the bodice ruffle. And I definitely like the notebook paper one — it would be better if it were kneelength instead of tealength, but it’s an interesting pattern and her headsuit is topnotch.

    The blue dress is SO Lucy and Ethel, if you shortened it.

    • Esme

      Except that Lucy and Ethel’s dresses were nicely “fit & flare,” whereas this just seems to be a huge morass of fabric that the belt can’t begin to constrain. I agree that this is one of the ugliest dresses I’ve seen on anybody recently. And that sort of OTT smile isn’t helping–she looks maniacal.

    I just find myself wishing she was dressed like Olivia Pope and not Kerry Washington. Olivia Pope rocks structured Prada by day, silk jammies with red wine/popcorn by night. Olivia Pope is my hero (minus the whole affair thing).

    So where was the “fine”?

    Yuck. As if that first dress was not hideous enough, she had to add in that inexplicable white belt and shoes. What the fug? Nellie Oleson would have a field day.

    She better be pregnant or had a fallout with Erin Walsh… There is no excuse for her looking this terrible. I know it’s been a long summer/ fall promoting Scandal, but literally this is the worst I’ve seen her look in awhile. I’m hoping that she’s just pregnant and has been having a hard time picking out clothes to fit her “not so tiny anymore” body.

    The dress she wore on The Daily Show on Thursday night definitely made me think she could be pregnant…but I don’t know if I would have thought of it if I hadn’t been reading all the pregnancy rumors on GFY!

    I thought she was Michelle Obama in the first shot. my initial reaction was
    “Michelle Obama is wearing WHAT?!!!”
