Fugs and Pieces, August 30, 2013


Happy Labor Day Weekend, Americans! I hope it’s full of delicious cocktails and fabulous BBQ. We will be posting our usual Casual Fuggerday posts tomorrow — don’t forget to check GFY on the weekends now, for a dose of celebrity candids madness — but otherwise , we will return with regular postings on TUESDAY. Until then:

– A reminder that our annual Summer Red Carpet Report Card is up at The Cut. Who nailed their press junkets this year? Find out! (The Cut)

Josh Jackson — I’m sorry, PACEY — has a new job! On Showtime, about cowboys, and also starring Dominic West, so let’s at least hope for some partial nudity from someone. (Lainey)

Jackie Collins does a dramatic reading of Cher’s latest. A WORLD OF YES. (Idolator)

– There’s a Royal Wedding in Monaco this weekend  — it’s going to be private, so boring for us, but let’s celebrate by looking at all these Well Dressed Royal Ladies. (Socialite Life)

– This interview with X-Files creator Chris Carter is interesting, thoughtful, and involves Mulder and Scully in a Cialis ad. (Vulture)

– I tweeted about the awesome Tumblr Sassy Scans a few weeks ago, now read this interview with its founder. (LAist)

– It’s the 100th birthday of the face of Buckingham Palace — the actual face of the building, not, like, her Majesty — and this is a very interesting look back at the building’s history. (Royal Collection Trust)

– Speaking of, there are some pretty strong rumors that Andrew and Fergie might get REMARRIED. (Socialite Life)

–Anne Helen Peterson smartly examines why so many of us aren’t that crazy about Olivia Wilde. (Anne Helen Peterson)

– French bakers would like Kanye West to understand that CROISSANTS CAN NOT BE RUSHED. (Time)

Domino magazine is RETURNING! This is very exciting. (Refinery29)

– I’m just going to leave you with this headline: Wall Street Guys Are Dropping $1500 for Burning Man Costumes at Screaming Mimis. (Paper Magazine)

Fergie and Josh Duhamel named their baby boy Axl Jack. That sounds a bit like a Guns ‘n’ Roses-branded breakfast cereal, but mazel tov, you guys! (Celebitchy)

– I LOVE IT when The Cut asks designers for the one word/phrase inspiration for their upcoming collections, because it’s often hilarious. This season, those one words include: “Gump” (please be Forrest, please be referring to Forrest), “One-a-Day Betsey” (that doesn’t mean ANYTHING, Betsey Johnson), “Zanzibar,” and “Bodega.” (The Cut)

– You probably want to read about how the coffee cup sleeve was invented. (Design Decoded)

Beyonce is VERY cute on a roller coaster. (Socialite Life)

– This is a very interesting interview with James Deen, the porn star who was in The Canyons. (Refinery29)

– I enjoy this headline and I hope it comes to pass: Rodarte Wants to Dress Vin Diesel (Fashionista)

    The comment about Pacey, Dominic West and partial nudity just gave me a smiley face.

    Oh good grief you guys…..are we ready for potential Duchess of York, Fergie 2.0?!?!? Lord give us strength! Although: remember how she dressed? There would be quite a few Fuggable outfits :)

    • LoriK

      I secretly kind of want them to get remarried. I always thought it was sort of shame they didn’t work out. In the beginning they seemed to genuinely like each other (unlike Diana & Charles who were clearly doomed from the start). Besides, I love a good happy ending.

  3. Nicky

    Why have we not seen one picture of Beyonce with her pixie hair, since she cut it?

    • Jessica

      Because she went back to her Wig Wardrobe right off the bat — this is for a video, I think, though. I loved her pixie, I wish it had got to live in the wild longer.

      • Heather

        Also, we can only use pictures in our subscriptions, and we didn’t have any.

  4. Amy

    Domino is coming back!!!!! Happy dance!!!!!!!

  5. Melinda

    Thanks for the intro to Anne Helen Peterson’s blog! I find the intersection between feminism and pop culture so interesting (including here at GFY), and her writing is really thoughtful.

    • Marie

      Now EVERYBODY will know about her and her genius … which is a very good thing!

  6. Eli

    Fellow Teen Witch fans…Mandy Ingber reenacts Top That. Heh.

    Even though it is not the same without Mr. “He’s soo funky,” I appreciate the effort.

    •  HelenBackAgain

      Aaaawww, I love how at the end she says, “You could probably do it better than me. Now you try it!”

  7. Aurora

    ‘Fugs and Pieces’ has become Every Saturday, Can’t Miss, Appointment Interwebs for me…
    such a range of topics!
    I look forward to it each week and am always amused, delighted and instructed…

    Great job, again, Girls!

    Thank you!

  8. Annie E

    Well, I guess I love James Deen now.

    The Cut red carpet slideshow is from last summer. Is there one from summer of 2013?

  10.  Squirrel!

    Why am I not that crazy about Olivia Wilde? Because the only role I’ve seen her play is Thirteen on House, and I was turned off both by her character and by how other characters acted around her.

    •  Squirrel!

      *by the way other characters acted around her

      (sounds less awkward that way)
