Fugs and Fabs: The House of Cards premiere


I was thinking to myself, “I wonder if Rooney Mara and Kate Mara ever get asked to pose together, Olsen-style.” It turns out the answer is YES, but with 50% less change of permanently conjoined hips.

    “Hi, my name is Sandrine and my dress is made of wheat!”

    I only ever associate that name with Ross Gellar. And only ever will.

      Ross Gellar was also my first thought!
      “Our child will be beaten to death in the schoolyard!” “By Sandrine.”

        HA! I totally forgot about that. What is wrong with me?

          No, “Rain’” is the name whose dress is made of wheat! And Phoebe says, “Oh, I bought soap from her at a craft fair!”

        “Hmm. That’s a really pretty name . . . for an industrial solvent.”

          That’s exactly what I was coming here to post! I will always associate the name Sandrine with that episode of Friends.

    Coincidentally I was thinking just the other day “Whatever happened to Sandrine Holt?”

    That is a lot of meh on the red carpet, but I think you can only get so excited if posing in front of a large Netflix logo. Robin Wright’s outfit may be an afterthought, but holy crap she looks great. The short hair suits her, and perhaps so does no longer being married to Sean Penn.

    The Mara sisters don’t even look related to me but they both give great face. Amber Tamblyn looks like a fool and poor poor Samantha Mathis… what is going on there? She has on the bright lipstick and some moisturizer and nothing else.

    I feel like Rooney Mara thinks she has to be Lisbeth Salander lite always and forever. There used to be a time when she smiled and wore colors and was not so ghostly.

    Also, I will irrationally hate Samantha Mathis forever because she played awful Amy who underservedly got Laurie aka my secret boyfriend Christian Bale.

      ME TOO. Having hot hot hot Christian Bale in that role — esp since his chemistry with Wino was great – made Amy/Laurie an even GREATER TRAGEDY.

        I actually watched it this weekend because I own the DVD and all and I had to skip forward when Jo tells Laurie no because it makes me want to throw my shoe at the TV. I mean, Gabriel Byrne is a nice looking dude as well, but come ON. LAURIE FTW.

      Ghostly is a great word for her. She looks so great in the previews for that Side Effects movie. With the lighter hair and makeup she looks..you know…alive.

      See, I love her as Christian Slater’s cool girlfriend who brings him out of the basement in Pump Up the Volume.

      But, yeah, she looks dreadful.

      hahaha omg, i think about that EVERY time i see samantha mathis! also is it just me or does her hair/makeup make her look just a liiiiitle bit like shes strung out on crack?

    The short hair on Robin looks really chic. Then again, nothing is chicer than getting out of an abusive relationship.

    So, that’s Mara Sisters For the Win. Because they look less blah than everybody else; which is kind of a sad commentary on the whole shebang. Is everybody saving their nice clothes for the Oscars?

    Kate looks lovely, Rooney just looks goth (and not in a flattering way). Keep rocking that style, Kate. Rooney, perhaps you might want to consider something that’s slightly less Addams-family-chic. Just sayin’.

    Carla Gugino is just crazyhot times a thousand. And she’s so good at her job. I feel like her career has sort of suffered because she’s so good looking. Like people don’t know what to do with her–I think directors/casting directors think she’s too hot to play a range so she doesn’t book as many good gigs as she should.

    At 41, Carla is “aging”?

    At 46, I think Robin’s holding her own. The fact that she’s not overdressed appeals to me.

      I think what they mean is that at 41, Carla hasn’t messed with her face and therefore should be celebrated. I will toast to that!

          Tripple cheers! She is a truly beautiful woman with amazing acting skills.

          Also – the frigging Maras – those won the genetic and the financial lottery (though lost the Superbowl this year – boo hoo). No fair! (I hope they wrap up the Millenium thing pretty quickly – Noomy Rapace did all three films at once and it apparently did quite a number on her psyche).

    Why does 29 year old Amber Tamblyn look like such a matronly mess? Is this what being married to 19 years older David Cross does to a person?

    I love Constance Zimmer’s dress, Carla Gugino and Robin Wright look fantastic, and everyone else ranges from OK to awful.

    I’m pretty sure Kate Mara is wearing three dresses on top of each other…a spaghetti strap slip, a pretty silver lace dress with 3/4 sleeves and then some bizarro overdress of sheer black something with beading and then white ruffles at every (too long) edge. It’s like she’s been draped in the ghost of Mary Todd Lincoln.

    Rooney Mara looks like a less bejeweled version of Johnny Weir.

      OMG, yes! They need to star in some goofy romantic comedy, involving love quadrangles and makeovers. I may take up fanfiction and get started on that screenplay…

    Amber is wearing one of the worst outfits I have ever seen!!!!

    Another bunch of actor seemingly on their way to several different events: bowling, a fancy dinner, a discotheque, running out for smokes.

    I think this is the 1st time I’ve seen Kate & Rooney together in a picture and DAMN they’re gorgeous! From now on, when I feel bad about myself, I’ll look at a picture of Carla Gugino and say to myself “It’s possible”! Oh, and I’ll have a Wildberry Mojito and Kate Mara’s shoes… Thank you!

    Second person to mention it, but it should be said again because SOMEONE should have told her before she went out – I have no idea how Amber Tamblyn made something so crazy look SO matronly. I know she’s younger than me, but I’d have never guessed it from that picture.

    Constance Zimmer looks great! And it’s just nice to see her, anyway.

    Amber resembles what I look like when I start digging sweaters and scarves from my cubicle drawer when the A/C is blasting away at work.

    Princess Butter Cup looks great! I love that pixie cut on her. And I’m just happy to see Natasha Lyonne upright. That girl has had a lot of drama.

    Samantha Mathis is not walking the red carpet. She is on the Walk of Shame. I genuinely hope she’s not as strung out as she appears.

    Robin Wright’s haircut is gorgeous on her. I’m suppressing the urge to cut my hair right now.

    Love Kate Mara’s hair and makeup. The dress has a bit too much going on, I think.

    why is samantha mathis even there? i looked on imdb and didn’t see that she’s involved in house of cards.

    i’m only asking because i was friends with her in elementary school but lost contact with her after that. so i need to know if i should be jealous/happy for her. i do hate her outfit though.

    I admit, I have no idea who Samantha Mathis is, but WHY is she wearing billowy tinfoil?

    Wow. So many bad outfits here. Robin Wright may have been too casual, but she looked great. As did Carla Gugino and Sandrine.

    Looking at Kate’s dress I’m really feeling it but am not understanding what’s up with the hemline tagged onto such a great dress. The dress is so beautiful…but then they have strange sheer and ruffle stapled on. I don’t get it.

    Anyone else remember Amber back as this adorable young girl playing Emily Q on General Hospital? Most of the time actresses seem to do better with style and appearance when they get off the soaps. She’s somehow been attacked by a bag lady instead. Plus she’s wearing the most HIDEOUS tights I’ve ever seen!

    Wow, that show has a lot of “has-beens” or “near-beens” doesn’t it? Not that I object. Most of them are solid actors and it’s good they’re getting work. I do wish Robin Wright would try a bit harder. She’s stunning and seemingly without surgery. I guess I just want her to get a great Oscar winning role so she can thumb her nose at Sean Penn because for no reason at all, I take her side! Okay, I might have been a Santa Barbara fan back in the day. And of course who isn’t a Princess Bride fan?
