Fug or Fab: Lily Collins


fug-or-fab

I kind of like this, but mostly in the way where I want this not to be a dress but rather a tremendous wall treatment behind my huge, five-star-hotel quality bed, in my bedroom that has appeared in the pages of Domino (because in this fantasy, Domino is still being published and also, they didn’t cancel Ringer).

It goes without saying that those shoes are so boring that I just fell into a coma and cracked my head on the bedside table and when I woke up, I thought I was actually Jessica Wakefield.

I'm off to go stay out past curfew with a man sporting a creepy mustache. You take the wheel:

    I like it! Even the shoes.

    Dress I’m wishy-washy about. It’s okay. Shoes I hate. If they were any pointier, insert something humorous here.

    She looks like Nina Dobrev at a glance here.

    It looks a bit itchy.

    I like this dress! I’d wear my hair up with great earrings, make the dress a tad longer and find better shoes, but the dress is great.

    what shoes do you want her to wear? that dress is textured and shiny and short and patterned and colorful and has sleeves. anything more exciting on her feet would cross the line into too much. boring is appropriate footwear for this dress.

    if i were the one in this dress, i suppose i’d wear slightly rounder toed shoes in the darker blue color on her dress, but just because i like blue shoes and dislike pointy toes.

      Agree that a darker, round-toed heel would look better. I also wonder how high these heels are, because they kind of give that kitten-heel effect that Lainey hates so much: they’re not high enough to lengthen the leg and instead stumpify her feet. That’s what I’m seeing. So…higher-heeled, darker, round-toed shoes?

    Okay, between the coma comment and the bit about wanting to cuddle with Naomi’s clutch, you’ve completed me today, Jessica. As usual, the Fug Girls are just what I need to make it through the day!

    how can it be so oppressively structured and essentially shapeless at the same time?

    I want to live in this fantasy world. Can I be Elizabeth? And I’m not sure of everything south of the neck, but her head looks amazing.

    Who designed this thing? Hannibal Lecter? Her skin appears to be receding from her right hip and shoulder.

    Did you know about the Domino revamp? I’m not even kidding. Rashida
    Jones on the cover, instead of monthly it says Fall/Winter 2012!

    She looks like she’s showing us a table at the Chang Sing, with the delicious Almond Chicken and egg roll special.

    Oh and, I think its just she’s a titch too pale to work this, Kat Graham would wear the hell out this.

    Ringer was cancelled? Damn! I mean, I never watched it, but I sort of mean to get around to doing so.

    I also resent the fact that you brought up Ringer’s cancellation and now I can’t concentrate on the clothes. WAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

    DOMINO is now being published as a quarterly, I guess. We just it in at the BN I work for – it has Rashida Jones on the cover and I’m pretty sure I did some squealing in delight.

    The color of the shoes is good. It’s just the pointyness. I’m seeing elf, fairy, or good witch shoes.

    Don’t mind the dress as such but hate, hate, hate the shoes.

    For some reason I kinda like it. I think it’s the long-sleeved mini approach; it always puts me in mind of cool 60s outfits. But you’re right about the shoes, they are rather dull.

    (And 5 minutes of Googling later I now understand why the red carpet has The Bay’s logo on it. Relief!)

    Hmm. So at very first glance, I really liked the dress. And then I noticed the boxy sleeves and mock turtleneck, and hated it because of its Star Trek villainy. And then I was like, assume you change the sleeves and necklines to something not so severe, are we ok? And I think the answer is maybe not. I think the fabric itself is pretty stiff-looking. So, maybe I like the print, but would want this to be in a softer fabric? But then would that work with the beading, which I think is interesting? So something here is good, but other parts of it feel so off and I don’t know how to fix it, so maybe just burn it and move on.

      No, no, no, don’t burn it! Give it to my mom to wear to her grandkid’s wedding.

        Haha. Deal. Or maybe great-grandkid’s wedding. Presumably, in this future time we are envisioning, the bride might wear something like the Gaultier bandage outfit in The Fifth Element, which is all kinds of awesome.

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do C=L=I=C=K>>> Green32.com

    I always want to refer her to my eyebrow waxer.

      Are you kidding?! I LOVE her eyebrows. She is my eyebrow muse. Her face is the loveliest thing I think I’ve ever seen.
      Well, that was intense.

        No, you’re right. I meant to say that earlier. She has one of the most truly beautiful faces in the biz. I don’t know if it’s just super symmetrical or what, but I always think, “That is an objectively flawless face, basically.” And her eyebrows are part of it; it’s a testament to the face that she can carry emphatic brows.

    I have yet to see her in something really stylish! The shoes really kill me, they are awful!

    I LOVE IT!!! I saw her on TV and thought “That’s FABULOUS!” WANT! I love the dress; a simple cut & silhouette in an interesting & intricate fabric = WIN! And, I like the shoes… I’d wear the whole ensemble myself! Plus, her reddish hair & beautiful makeup are flawless!

    Did she spill orange fanta on her dress? If the rest of the material consisted of deeper hues to match the intensity of the orange this would be so much nicer…

    I want a world in which they didn’t cancel Ringer, and I like those shoes just fine.

    I actually dig the dress, but it needs an inch or two in length, as it’s presently not hitting her at the most flattering part of her leg. Definitely needs darker shoes with a rounder toe and some height. Couple inches there, too, and she’s golden (much like her shoes, which for some reason are making me stabby).

    Just popping in for the first time in AGES (damn you, office firewall!) to say that I really, really miss Ringer. And I miss posting on a message board where others miss it, too.

    Back on topic, this dress reminds me of an overly-stuccoed wall of a Chinese restaurant. I don’t know how to explain that.

    I’m also popping in for the first time in AGES, but it is to mention how Dear Sister was the first SWH book I ever read and I had to hide it from my mom because I was 8 and it was supposed to be for 12 year olds because Bruce touches Elizabeth’s BOOB in it.
