Fuglight: Fugging Fug, Part Fug


I am going to write this entire post without mentioning that stupid summer scandal, because you know what, I’m tired of it. Besides, Kristen wisely gave us so much to discuss. In sum: If anyone out there saw this dress and thought, “Huh, I wonder what the Fug Girls will think of this,” then IT’S LIKE YOU DON’T KNOW US AND OUR CAPS-LOCK KEYS AT ALL. But we do at least get to discuss her smile, her hair, and some hilarious classes. There IS a silver lining. It’s just not underneath this dress.

    1. That dress is terrible. 2. Her hair is amazing. Why doesn’t it always look like that? 3. I have the exact same crazy glasses that the lady in the final slide is wearing. They’re more fun than you might think.

      I don’t know what there is to endure in that moment! Meeting people like that seems like it would be one of the more fun parts of being KStew

        But that is exactly why I find her so off-putting, she doesn’t “like” their attention, with her usually surly face: she must simply endure we mere peons.

      I met an English guy in Spain once who was the spitting image of Boy George when he put on those glasses, it was eerie.

    I haven’t even gone through the slideshow yet, but my first thoughts were, “She needs to go up a siz—OH MY GOD WHAT IS THIS DRESS.”

    It’s so cruel. On the one hand, she looks gorgeous, relaxed and happy. On the other hand..
    The bodice is the worst. You know how Michealangelo created stunning sculptures and paintings, yet all the women he depicted looked like men with two half grapefruits stuck to their chests? That bodice is performing the same evil.

    I’m pretty sure that she of all people wouldn’t want to draw people’s attention to what she may or may not be doing with her lady basement. And those flesh tone panels are giving me the heebie jeebies. Like, a dirty dishcloth. But, her face is AMAAAZZZING. I must have that lipstick.

      That was my thought too! Do I think the scandal was overblown for her? Absolutely. But if you’re just getting over said scandal, then why, WHY, would you wear a dress that screams, “I’M PRETTY MUCH NAKED”???

        That is what I thought: she is naked. What is she saying with her nakedness? Well, it’s nothing that anyone can hear as their eyes are filled with nakedness. That girl isn’t half as anything as she thinks she is. All those Twilight people should be grateful and enjoy their moments now….

        I figured it was part of her rekindled romance. She looked thrilled to be with him again.

        I’ve tried but I can’t get worked up over this dress. I’ve seen much, much worse. If you’re going to wear a sheer attention-getting dress like this, this is for the most part the way to do it.

    Do you think the nude color/exposed skin of the dress may be a little joke on KStew’s part — she has been “exposed” by her paparazzi scandal, her relationship with Robert Pattison literally “stripped bare”, etc.? That may be a little too Freudian, but that was my first thought when I saw this dress. If it’s one big f**k you to everything she’s been through in the past few months, then she has seriously risen in my estimation. Otherwise, it’s just a mess.

      exactly this. on ANYONE else it’s not funny, not good, not flattering. but, taken in context – i have to give the slow clap and hope that it ends in thunderous applause.

        I genuinely don’t think she meant it that way. Especially not months after, when she wants/needs people to shut up about it.

      Oh my eyes… My overworked, sad, overexposed eyes. However, I agree. I think she’s giving a feverish nod to the multiple narratives (as awful as that sounds) this premiere/personal crappola is providing to critics.
      “Hi, I’m Kristen. I’ve been GIANT tabloid fodder and here I am, with a slutty dress (whatWHAT), on the arm of opposite tabloid fodder, and my face/hair look resplendent. Watch the movie. Also, I’m not in sneakers. Epic. BOOM. I need to go drink a PBR.”

    It’s the Curse of the Stewarts: they can only have a good dress or good hair on any given occasion; never both. And they always need to wash off about half their eye makeup.

    I think the dress choice — if not the dress itself — was genius. Everyone looking at the dress instead of the couple in question. Beautiful girl.

    Okay…So she IS technically naked. BUT…I can kind of understand where she’s coming from. I can totally see her and her hobo-stylist drinking Scotch out of Converse Mad Hatter style and deciding that the best way to divert people from asking her about the icky affair thing WITH THE MARRIED MAN WHO NEVER GETS ANY FLACK is to show up to the premier naked.

    Hobo-stylist would be all, “Girl, you’ve got to own that red carpet with Spanx and lace. No one will be talking about your bad judgment in men. Only in clothes.”

    And K-Stew would be all, “I hope it’s the crotchless kind of Spanx. I have a reputation to live up to.”

      She has already done the post-scandal red carpets, though — that would have been the time for levity.

    Okay, this is a Zuhair Murad. We know that he can be big on sheer (which kills me – when he goes opaque, some of his dresses are just so pretty, or incredibly feminine and sexy).

    I’m sifting through current designs and I can’t even FIND this. It actually looks like it’s a muslin for something in progress that she took out of the workshop or something. Which is a shame because there some current things that are kind of edgy and very KStew without looking so crap.

      KStew’s dress didn’t have the feathers at the bottom.

      I like the dress. I agree with the FugGirls that is could have also been pretty in an emerald green, but either way, I will happily go against the grain and say I like this look.

        He doesn’t even have it on his own website – neither Couture or Ready to Wear. Ditto for the lace jumpsuit featured this morning. Makes me wonder on the genesis of these pieces.

        I still think this looks like a muslin, even with the lace paneling.

    But I do hope you’ll do the rest of the cast because Robert’s green suit? Gorgeous! He really pulled off the color. And Dakota Fanning looks good as a brunette. Very, very good. And Billy Burke’s date (wife?) has a terrible hippie name.

    As soon as I saw this dress on another website, I HAD to come here to see what the Fug Girls would say. It may be that she’s giving everyone the sartorial bird, but at the end of the day, the joke’s on her. It’s so hideous and unflattering. That being said, I do covet her hair.

    And yes, hurrah for clean, shiny hair! And for smiling. And for stunning eye make-up. I don’t know how many twentysomethings read this site, but please trust an old lady, your early twenties are the time to really do wonderful extreme eye make-up because you have no wrinkles. So play play play now! I didn’t and somewhat regret it now because after a certain age, it looks bad. Unless you are Gwen Stefani apparently.

    Earlier this morning I took a little trip into your archives to find the sheer granny panty dress Britney Spears wore a couple years ago. That’s the first time I remember seeing this look, and I seriously thought it was the weirdest non-Halloween outfit I had ever seen. At the time, I just figured it was a case of poor Britney wearing something crazy. But that was almost three years ago and it’s *still* popping up on the red carpet on a regular basis! WHY?!

    On the one hand, I’m glad she didn’t pull an Abbie “No, I’m not a home-wrecking tramp, I’m an Amish Puritan nun!” Cornish. On the other hand, this just plain ol’ looks like hot boiled crap and nothing going on above the neck will save it.

    She’s also been on the red carpet a ton since the scandal. Back in September she did the “screw you all, I am HERE and I’m FINE” thing at TIFF when she wore the bright flowers. The time for a whimsical statement came and went, and she made it already. What the Stew needs now is for people to forget, and this was a baaaaaad choice for that.

      If she was determined to go with Zuhair Murad, what was wrong with any of these? Very her, and not a granny panty in sight.

        Oh – these are from the S/S 2013 collection. For some reason, Style.com does not have lookbooks for him, and his site is all Flash with no direct links to collections or images. I took some screenshots and cobbled them together.

          I actually loved that first black/gold halter mini. Zuhair Murad can create dresses that make me *desksplat*, but when he gets it right, he gets it right. There’s so little middle ground for him.

    I think some people are giving KStew waaaaaaaaay too much credit. I seriously doubt this is a statement dress regarding the affair. She’s already shown an affinity for sheer clothing, and the “scandal” was over months ago. I think she just chose this ugly dress on her own accord. Which is a shame, because her hair and makeup look lovely, and I like the shape of the dress for her. Without the sheerness and with some actual color, this could have been a stunning look.

    • Kara

      I totally agree. I really don’t understand how she left out the house with granny panties on that gave her four butt cheeks. Did she not check out the back?

    I really like her hair here. She needs to employ shampoo and brush way more often because she actually has pretty hair. Who knew. Also, I love the tiny RPatz behind her hand in slides #2 and #3.

    And can we please add Mooter to the official FugNation band names list?

    I was so eager to hear what you guys would think. I know the day is early but I’m surprised that no one in the comments likes it all! (I only skimmed them so it’s totally possible I missed one.)

    I don’t hate it…I think I like it! Yes, it is a public display of underwear…but I think she looks sexy. I like the fit of the bodice, I like the color, I love the belt, I love the lace. She looks great all over. On some (Kim Kardash) it would be too much. But Kristen is so slender and so I think it looks good.

    Anyone back me up??

    The rear view looks like butt-pad undies. Is it possible she thought she was improving the dress by leaving the lining at home? Her judgement seems not to have improved in any arena.

    When I first saw pictures of this, I actually thought it was kinda pretty. That was when I only saw it from the waist up. Then things went south reaaaally fast. Which is a shame, cause I kinda like the concept of the dress with the lacy parts that go out like rays and that necklace-like thing. But why oh why isn’t this lined??? I think it could really look great if it was, maybe even with a color underneath, that could be cool.

    • Amy

      Yeah, I was thinking with a pop color lining underneath (and a shade larger size, seriously, I can’t breathe for looking at her), this would be made of win. I think the skirt is gorgeous, and I can’t say no to a bow belt, but ooooooof that color + sheer = atrocious. It needs something to pick up the pretty lace details more.

    Ok, you know I love me some KStew, I defend her to the death. HOWEVER ….. NO. This is too much fug for even me.

    She does look lovely though, clean hair is always nice.

  34. Helen

    The worst crime to me is that it’s so unflattering. This does nothing for her naturally quite lovely figure. The “Picasso Arse” (heh!) is the most hideous part, but none of it is cut well or fits well, and it’s a terrible color for her. Then there’s that weird granny-ish zipper in the middle of all this trying-too-hard-to-be-sexy…

    The foundation’s troweled on again, and so’s the lipstick (though I do love the color). I want to remove about half the sheer quantity of both items, and I think that would look a LOT better.

    Stewart does at least look as if she might have showered that day, and her hair is terrific. So, I guess there’s that?

    Bad, dress. BAD! Her makeup is lovely. And I’m sorry, but her hair, while clean-looking (and that’s a plus for her) is still a g.d. mess. Whoever styled it must have been vision-impaired. It does not look good.

    • Megan M

      Thank you MissTee. I thought I was the only one who thought that, while her hair looks clean and shiny and lush, is styled like something out of a bad 80s movie. What is with this side swipe thing? She’s been doing it a ton (although usually with gross, greasy hair), and every commercial I’ve seen for this season’s Cougar Town shows Busy Phillips with her hair exactly the same. Is this look coming back? It’s so horrible!

    I’m going to on record as saying that I would unequivocally love this dress if it had somewhat of a lining. I don’t even mind some level of sheer, honestly. This is just too much. It’s really the graphic nature of the satin diaper digging into her under-butt-cheek that does it. I don’t need or want to see that.
    Her hair looks amazing. Still not digging her makeup lately…something about the heavy bronze eyeshadow is unflattering and that lip color is off, in my opinion.

  39. Tiffany

    I think that it could look worse, but at the end of the day it isn’t great. I think she took a bold fashion risk, so I applaud her for that…I just think if you are going “nude” it should be a flattering blush-nude. Not dead skin nude color. I also think the bra cups are too big for her, and from the side you can really tell they are nearly empty. In summary, the panty part should have been loser (or in a more tanga shape), the top should fit better, the color should look alive, and there should be lining!

    When I saw the back, I was like, for the love of pete, just wear nothing, Kate Hudson did and it was titillating and all but it was fine. But then I looked at the front again and no, she can’t go nekkid underneath, can she. So this is just a crappy design. The dress is always going to look like crap from behind because Zuhair is forcing them to wear panties, the line of which will always interfere with the line of the dress. BADLY DONE, Zuhair. Badly done.

    It’s a very pretty slip. Now put the dress over it and we’re good. Or put a pretty lining, in a flattering color to her underneath. But since she is wearing this, thank goodness for granny panties, because what if she wasn’t wearing undies or a thong or something?

  42. Lauren

    Have we ever discussed the fact that she always wears such a deep side part it looks like a combover? I’ve googled “kristen stewart side part” to try and find some other commentary on this, but it inevitably leads to some boring how-to videos from wannabe Bellas. Am I the only one who sees this?!

    • pantsonfire

      I actually love a deep side part, especially on her. Someone pointed out the other day that she has a possibly longish face, and I think the extreme side part is really flattering to that shape of face (which I share, somewhat). Jessica Alba was doing this for a while, as well, and she also has an oval face (though her features are kind of perfect enough to do her hair however which way she wants it).

    The dress is objectively terrible, but at this point in time, right now, I just want to pat her on the back and give her a glass of the champagne she’s wearing and say, “You made it, kid.

    I actually love this! I think her face and hair are incredible, of course, but also the dress is gorgeous and I don’t mind the transparency on her because she has such a great body, I am perfectly happy to see all that! I mean, these red carpet dresses aren’t really clothing, they’re just big statements, so I don’t really care how revealing they are if they look good.

    Well, she looks like she took a shower and washed her hair, which is an improvement. But wow, that is one hideous dress, and too small, as well. And what is her thing with visible butt? Didn’t she once wear, like, a vinyl miniskirt with w/a sheer panel “window” on the back? Geez.

    And Flora – “how old are you, eleven?” was a perfect question to ask.

    If the FUG girls actually read all these comments and memorize who we all are, you would know I am not a fan of her style or her, in general, however, if she had only worn something decent she would have been gorgeous. Her makeup is perfect. The dress is hideous – the cups, the colour, the transparency, the granny panties. I wouldn’t like this on anyone.

    Regardless of the fact that it’s sheer, this is a seriously boring dress that does her body and her boobs no favors. But it does brilliantly reflect how she comes off as an actress: beige and trying too hard.

    I’m just going to pretend I didn’t see that dress. It’s awful in every sense of the word.

    I do love her hair though, it looks amazing. There is just one thing I don’t understand: why do some women who have long hair insist on scraping all of it over one shoulder? As a formerly long-haired-girl I hate that kind of styling with a passion. Your hair is not a drunk pirates expletive-spilling parrot that needs to be strapped on your shoulder – set the poor thing free.

    Liking the hair although she looks a tad chinny in some shots. Agreed the dress would have worked if it was fully lined. This trend is becoming tired already.

    I am so over sheer. If the dress was black with nude or champagne lined it would be awesome or any other colour and lined would do.

    Also I love her hair here. She does her tousled waves look alot but I’m lazy about changing up my hairstyle so can’t bitch and it works for her. Although she is a bit miss with her updo styles such as TIFF On The Road Premiere and New York and LA Screenings of On The Road. She seems a bit fond of the half ponytail which just reminds me of my primary school photos – cringey.
