Fugs and Fabs: The E! Upfront


So, they had a red carpet — complete with fans! — at the E! upfronts, and yet Giuliana and Seacrest were walking the carpet rather than working it. I can’t deal with that level of self-reflexiveness.

    Anyone else feel like the “crowd” are E! interns?

    Joel McHale’s shoes! Love! Haha. He can do no wrong.

    Whatever KimK is wearing, it’s possibly one of the least flattering things I’ve ever seen anyone wear.

      Joel is a national treasure…that is all.

      McHale’s shoes are worthy of Ryan Stiles!

        Ha ha ha! You’re absolutely right :)

        He’s not wearing socks.
        KimK’s massive bazoomas stress me out. So big! So uncomfortable!
        I like Kelly’s outfit too but her hair & makeup is tres horriblah.

      It’s like Kim is purposefully TRYING to make her legs look stumpy. If that is the case, she succeeded.

        Never mind, I see this is before Kim put on her stumpifying shoes. She should have kept these on.

    Is Kourtney wearing the same outfit that Kim recently wore?

    • TLT

      Kris certainly is wearing the same red lace dress that Kim wore.

    • Sandra

      No, but I’m pretty sure that Kris is.

    • Nikole

      Kourtney is wearing something similar (not the same) to what Khloe wore on X Factor but Kris is definitely wearing the exact thing Kim did pre preggers

    I actually love the purple hair on Kelly O, but that style is making her look 87 years old.

      Google image search Mrs Slocombe. Bet you $5 she’s doing it totally deliberately and ironically.

        YES!! Mrs Slocombe! My brain was searching for who she reminded me of and you’ve hit the nail on the head.

      Those shoes, though, yikes. They need to be sent back to 1997 where I’m fairly sure she stole them from my closet. Not good then. Not good now.

      • Liz

        I agree! I can’t believe the fug girls gave her a pass on those clodhoppers!

    Unlike the guy behind her, I have no notes for Catt Sadler. (And this is coming from someone none too fond of peplum or peplum-adjacent dresses.) She looks great!

      I just have one, and it comprises two words: hypothermia lipstick.

      Other than that, cute!

    I think we need a collective chorus of “Oh, Honey, No” for Kim Kardashian (Yet again).

    Also – I ♥ Joel McHale.

    Did the makeup person have a whole lot of that one shade of foundation or is the lighting really weird?

    • Helen
      +1

      No, the foundations are weird.

      I’m pleased to see several lipsticks that are actual colors though.

    Ryan Lochte needs a belt, his pants look too big while his jacket looks too snug. A belt would balance the whole thing out.

    Also, those are totally E interns.

  9. Esme

    Someone should tell Kelly O never to wear her hair like that again–horrors!

    Kim looks like she’s 3 feet tall in that hideous tuxedo blazer breastcoat thing. On the other hand, nice gams!

  11. qwertygirl

    Oh Kim. You were doing so well there for…a minute.

    If you are going to wear red shoes with a red dress, make sure they are the same red. Looking at you, Kris Jenner.

    I’m so glad Joel said something on the last “Soup” about how messed up his makeup was on the previous episode. he looked like Johnny Weir’s weird old uncle.

    • HKS

      Yes! I remember wondering wtf was wrong with Joel’s face during that ep. This is why I continue to love him. Nothing is beyond critique. Not even his own face.

      But I have nothing to critique (with him) here. He looks both hot AND interesting.

    Well CLEARLY Brody Jenner is going to have to change his name to Krody now!

  15. Jen

    haha, check out the girl clutching Joel’s arm. Those E! interns look like they’re having a lot of fun!

  16. Elizabeth Gorman

    Brody Jenner once punched out Joe Francis from Girls Gone Wild. That act alone will keep me from ever fully hating him.

    • Helen
      +2

      Hard to argue with that. Clearly, he’s pretty disgusting – but Joe Francis, SO much more so.

    I recall coveting Kelly O’s shoes (in black) circa 1998.

    Chelsea may not be your cup of tea, but she is so my shot of vodka any day!

  19. Erin
    +1

    Chelsea’s stage persona isn’t my cuppa, either, but she seems like a really nice person based on recent interviews I’ve seen. She seems like a cool woman to get a drink with, as long as it’s only every once and a while.

    Also, I suspect that Seacrest is being “interviewed” by NBC. Despite his million-year contract with Idol, that show’s days are numbered, and I think the PTB are trying to make him happen for the later hours of the Today Show. If they toss Willie Geist for him, I will write several strongly worded emails!!!

    • Helen
      +2

      I’m with you, Erin, I think Chelsea Handler is probably a lot of fun in small doses.

    Oh man. This slideshow (and the E network itself, really) is like a pictorial representation of everything that is wrong with society.

    Except for Joel McHale (and I have no idea who that Catt Sadler person is, so can’t really verify if the statement above applies to her).

  21. Art Eclectic

    I really want Kris Jenner to go that same place that Paris Hilton has gone to. That place being far, far away from my sight.

    “Because I care about those of you who are warm for Joel McHale’s form.”

    Well, I wasn’t before, but I am now. I think it’s the shoes and the saucy pose.

  23. Charlotte

    I like that dress on Kelly, but what’s with her makeup? I’m pretty sure bronzer isn’t supposed to turn you green.

    The look on that girl clutching Joe McHale’s arm is PRICELESS.

    • Helen
      +2

      I didn’t notice initially, but you’re right, Kelly’s color is off. I guess that back sunburn she tweeted the other day must’ve been on her face too, and the makeup artist over-corrected a little.

  24. ceecee

    Ryan needs to find out what size he really wears, because it’s not this. I think Kelly Osbourne is adorable, but enough with the lavender hair already.

  25. amys

    Ryan Lochte appears to be using PeeWee Herman’s tailor.

  26. Sabrina

    I miss Nathan Adrian too. Oh where art thou days of Summer Olympics and Endless Abs?

    Ryan Lochte’s suit is too small but I imagine it is hard to contain the abs (and the shoulders, and the biceps…)

    • Kate K
      +1

      For those missing Nathan Adrian, you should follow him on Twitter! He is charming, funny, and smart, and he posts lots and lots of pictures of himself (but in a self-deprecating kind of way.) It makes it easy to forget Lochte exists.

  27. Chris P
    +2

    I…may have to agree with dude behind Lochte, for multiple reasons. #jeah I don’t care if the suit is half a size too small – do you think golden retrievers know how to find the right size?

    La Osbourne the Younger looks like a schoolmarm. I like her hair styled like that, but…yeah, I am not wild about the lavender now. I don’t know whether it’s the hair, the lighting, the makeup, or both, but SHE looks green. (I think we settled on makeup when this issue last came up, but I don’t think the purple hair is helping.)

    The Duchess of Kambridge…needs to find a go-between to ask the actual Duchess of Cambridge for dresscoat (and actually, maternity wear in general) advice. I suggest the go-between because I have a feeling Liz would NEVER allow anyone in The Firm to correspond directly with a lowly Kardashian.

    SAKES, Kim Kardashian. Get it together, girl. you look like the girl that turns into a giant grape on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

    I have one suit with low fit trousers and the fit is definitely not like that in pic 3.(?) The jacket is way too small and that triangle of shirt and waist should not be showing.

    Chelsea Handler looks really good! And I love Joel McHale’s cool style!

    Joel McHale looks super sharp. And like he’s having fun. Love him!

    God, Brody Jenner’s really good looking. He seems so douchey I forget sometimes.

    I love you, McHale, but put on some socks. Your ankles are so pasty that it looks like you’re wearing white pantyhose under your trousers.

    For God’s sake, someone help Kim! My eyes cannot handle it anymore. She needs a style intervention. I don’t care if she is pregnant or not. There is NO excuse to wear what she does when she has plenty of cash money to hire someone to make her look presentable. JESUS.

    The blond Paid Audience Member behind Kris Jenner has a delightful expression on her face that suggests she feels like she’s in close enough proximity to catch something undesirable from Mrs. Jenner. I agree, Blond Paid Audience Member, I agree.

    Oh my lord. I just said that aloud to myself when I got to Kim Kardashian. What the hell. Can someone get this child a nice empire-waist maxi dress??? IT’S TIME.
