Fug or Fab: Anna Kendrick


fug-or-fab

It must be SO WEIRD to be Anna Kendrick right now. She was nominated for an OSCAR and then she has to pop back over to the Twilight movies, where she generally has approximately four lines. It’s like if Clooney got his role in ER, but still had to finish up a few episodes of The Facts of Life. On the other hand, it’s probably a low key affair for her, and she has been, historically, EASILY the funniest person in the films. Probably because she’s talented. And because her character often thinks Bella is acting like a total nitwit at the times when I most think Bella is acting like a nitwit, so I can relate to her — beyond the fact that her character and I share a name.  But it would be hard for a lot of people not to think privately, “THIS IS ABSURD. I AM AN OSCAR NOMINATED ACTRESS. WHAT AM I DOING AT THIS SHINDIG?”

Well, wearing a very shiny, ruffly dress, for one thing. It’s a bit like what might have happened if Jada Pinkett Smith had decided to bronze her Tonys dress. And while this has a certain Eau D’Upscale Gift Bag, I do not entirely hate it.

    I think this one is generally more palatable because it is age-appropriate for Anna. Jada? Not so much.

    I know this dress has a lot going on making accessorizing difficult, but is her decolletage lacking a little something?

    I need an “It’s not terrible” option.

    Bronze, gold… Anna’s allowed to have one shiny reminder of her Oscar Night, doesn’t she? Also, if anything is to shine ‘n’ sparkle, better her dress than some people’s skin.

    Upon close inspection, I LOVE this!
    Her makeup is flawless, she looks adorable.

    Have a great weekend Fug girls and fug nation,
    I plan on it!! A cold is waiting…

    It’s a nice dress, and she looks nice, but I don’t think she and dress are made for each other.

    I need an OK from the neck up and knees down option.

    her left foot looks like it’s trying to detach itself from the rest of her body! My fascinated horror won’t let me look away long enough to pay attention to the dress.

    She looks like her feet hurt – and, in and of itself the dress is okay but it does nothing for her.

    The girl also has a Tony Nomination in her resume – I say she can wear whatever she wants. I like the dress on her, and yes, it needs a necklace or long earrings, and luhuuv the shoes.

    Mia, I think your screen may be having colour problems, because she is actually quite pale, not a hint of orange..

    And as much as I like the dress, I don’t think it’s doing anything good for her. My first impression was that somebody put a giant finger on her head and squished her down a bit, so now she she looks slightly stubby and short-legged.

    I would love to wear this dress! I would have gone with a strappy shoe that matches her skin perfectly. The gold shoes are a bit matchy matchy and also draw your attention down and away from the dress. If she wore the neutral shoe and stood up straight with more confidence and with her shoulders back, she would look sensational.

    Those shoes look miserable! Why!? Does appearing to be standing on your toes make your legs look that much better? I’ll go back to my house coat and prune juice now.

    I think she’s getting closer to fab here. Her styling and posture are just so often not quite good, but this is closer. And I agree, she is the best actress in the movies.

    I think this looks too old for Anna. Those ruffles…aren’t they from the JCPenny formal wear for elders department?

    And to add insult to injury, so one behind her is even paying her any attention.

    The dress is OK. I’m over the ruffles.

    Oh, but it’s hilariously bad! It’s like commentary on the whole experience — of COURSE she wears the most ridiculous and yet sort of cute dress she can find! And the color’s great on her, if you completely ignore the actual dress. *g*

    She’s about 5 feet tall and a buck even, right? Why is she wearing a dress that makes her look square? The shiny cannot save that. She’s much too cute personally to wear something that is so unflattering.

    Does anyone else think Jessica killed Heather? Like in a battle over Diet Coke or George or something shiny? She hasn’t posted in quite a while. Everything okay at the GF HQ?

    I like the dress… hate the shoes, tho. Maybe they would look okay with a different dress, i don’t know.

    I think MIA meant to comment on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s photo (the one below this one)

    Upon the zoom-in, that bodice is really quite a bit too much. There are faux pearls, ribbon ropes, and jewels running down on to her hem (and in the most delicate place, too. I wonder how she sits?…) You’d think those curly ruffles would be sufficient. I agree she needs some necklace or earring blingage, but I think the shoes are fine with this.

    from the waist up -> love it.
    from the waist down -> not so much.

    she looks like she is being attacked by small bronze colored octopus.

    She needs to wear dresses that define her waist more, this is not the first dress she’s worn that makes her look boxy.

    I love metallics, so I love this!!! And, Jessica, I also have a weakness for gold lamé, so I understand. I still keep a gold lamé dress that I wore for a Gala when I was 17, 15 years ago!

    Fug Nation: Jessica didn’t kill Heather! Heather may not be posting on GFY, but she’s still twetting!

    I love it. But I, too, have a weakness for shine and glitter, so my opinion is not to be trusted.

    I actually really love this. I think it’s interesting and pretty without going over the top.

    gold lame is fun to say. not wear.
    It looks like C3PO’s maid costume.

    I love this on her, and I particularly love the ‘In Your Face’ way she’s standing. This is the first time I’ve seen anyone pull off this stance.

    Doesn’t she look like she’d be fun to hang out with?

    Her left leg is distracting me, so I don’t love the pose. I do love the shoes. And her confidence looks good on her. I abstained.

    It looks like she wrapped some kind of strange, metallic, ruffled towel around herself.

    different color + better posture would = cute.

    As it stands – not terrible.

    It’s just too fussy for me. She’s cute and all, but I think it’s just too much.

    Kreis picked up the statuette for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his role in the Broadway account of a famous jam session. The based-on-a-true-story musical recounts Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Lewis collaborating at the Sun Records studio in Memphis in 1956.

    “I don’t think an outstanding performance can exist authentically without a team that is working as a whole and as a unit, in harmony, and I owe this to the best, most talented, supportive cast and crew that I’ve ever had the privilege of working with,” Kreis said from the Radio City Music Hall stage after he accepted the award during the June 13 ceremony.
