Oscars Fug or Fab Carpet: Felicity Jones


fug-or-fab

“Why hasn’t America embraced me more?”

“Is it because my movie hinged upon my character making a ginormous mistake vis a vis paperwork that basically no one who’s ever had said paperwork would be dumb enough to make? Perhaps leather will help. IT WORKED FOR JOLIE ONCE UPON A TIME. If only I had a leg slit….”

BUT THE DRESS:

    …she had to fight Rooney Mara for this, didn’t she?

    Props for winning that fight, but I think the leather makes this not as all right as it could be. I think a more adventurous cut would have worked better with this.

    This would be a lovely dress in some other material. This is what Leather Tuscadero would have worn if she’d attended the Oscars.

    I’m distressed at the thought of how many animals died so that dress could live.

      Are you a vegetarian? Because cows don’t die JUST for leather… we eat them. Now, if it was mink or chinchilla, I’d be with you.

        Agree. Leather goods are by products. The animals aren’t killed usually for the sole purpose of their hide. The main purpose is for food. I would be really angry if it were fur though.

        The animals killed for leather are totally NOT usually killed first for food.

        I’m actually wrong, I think. Sorry y’all.

        @Candy – Yes, I’m a veggie so the fact that animals are also killed for food doesn’t make it that much better for me.

    This is a no. It looks like it’s made out of hefty bags…. maybe it’s the lighting, but somehow I doubt it.

    This is what Catwoman would wear to an Amish party. I don’t know how she got an invitation, but she’s going to spice up the joint.

    Personally, I think it’s her making the dress look bad. Every time I see a pic of her, I’m like who is that? I never remember her face and I don’t know if it’s because she’s got that whole “my soul has been sucked out of me” look in her eyes.

    BRB. Going to go Google her to figure out what mistake this was and who she actually is.

    Nipples. Once seen, can’t be unseen. I also wonder if a different waist detail would excite me more. Even with completely visible breast geography it bores me.

    I don’t understand how the “greats” are winning the poll, because none of us here in the comments like this. I dislike the cut, I dislike the wrinkles at the bottom, I dislike how utterly boring it is, and like lettucecup, I’m bothered by the sheer amount of animal skin here, byproduct or no. Thumbs down.

      I voted “fantastic” because even though the execution is slightly off, the idea is really cool. And in my fantasy life, I could totally pull this off. (In real life, I’d resemble one of those punching bags hanging at the gym.)

      Agreed, China.

    That has to be the most staid leather dress ever sewn.

    For some reason, I can’t reply directly to Annie E but I’d love to see some documentation that “the animals killed for leather are totally NOT usually killed first for food”. Having grown up on & around cattle farms, I’d have to wholeheartedly disagree. My grandpa would save & sell the hide after butchering just ONE cow… it is worth that much. Leather & beef are both huge money items. No one is going to kill a cow for one & waste the other. Exotic leathers may be a different story but not any leather where money can be made selling the meat too.

    I do actually like the dress. The pleats are cute & it fits her well. This wouldn’t be my first pick if I ever got to go to an Oscar party but it isn’t the worst dress ever, either.

    Didn’t Angelina wear already wear this dress…or at least a similar leather “gown”?

    The paperwork mistake was in “Like Crazy,” her character has visa problems. Not as in credit card visa , but as in passport visa.

    I would have liked this dress if it wasn’t for the wrinkles and whatever weird thing is going on with her chest. How could a dress be both leather and seemingly see-through? That’s an interesting and impressive trick, but not a good look.

    I’d like this even better in another material, but I do quite like this dress. She’s just not doing anything with it. Styling is dishwater-dull. With such a conservative cut, she needs to do something to make it pop.

    I’m thinking of Joan Cusack in “Working Girl”:

    “$6000.00 ? $6000.00? It’s not even leather!”

    A full skirt in leather is just a waste. Leather should fit like a second skin and hug the body.

    Actually, it doesn’t even look like leather to me. Looks more like an auf’d design from a Project Runway challenge: “make an Oscars’ gown out of trash bags”!

    It’s wrinkled, ruining the effect for me. Very garbage bag, as others have mentioned. Needs some accessorizing, as well.

    I wish the skirt was a bit smoother, but otherwise I think it’s a rather nifty outfit. An interesting application of leather.

    Fuggirls, THANK YOU for discussing the paperwork issue! I even found the trailer for Like Crazy frustrating for just that reason!!!

    Also, I think she’s pulling this off. I love her hair like this too.

    Wow there is a lot of hate on this dress. Though I’m not crazy about the material, the cut is really flattering, she’s got a great figure.

    I didn’t see Like Crazy but heard she got good reviews. I saw her as the lead in a BBC version of Northhanger Abbey (with Carrie Mulligan playing the bad girl part) and she managed not to annoy me like many Jane Austen leads do.

    Her hair and face look lovely. Makes me wish she was cast instead of Kristen Stewart in the upcoming Snow White adaptation with Charlize Theron. Felicity was up for the role, and I have to say she looks more like she could be the object of Charlize’s wrath and jealousy than Kstew.

      I agree – she’s a good actress, and I rather like her style (and YES, I would have bought her as a Snow White replacement much more easily than I buy KStew in the same role!)

    I think this overwhelms her & could of been cut better. Maybe some else could of pulled it off better? Jessica alba? It needs a bit of sexing up!

      I agree, someone with a bit more chutzpah could have pulled it off a lot better. She just looks a little sad and drained in it.

    I think this is all sorts of awesome! I love the dress, which fits her perfectly, and the styling is beautiful! Love the simple hair & makeup, the minimalist jewelry and the simple clutch! I think it’s PERFECT, honestly! FAB!!!

    All I can think is ‘Fug, isn’t she boiling hot in that leather get-up?’

    Who wrote about nipples ? There’s no nipple, but bras. Quite as bad, though.

    I’d never heard of her either, and Google told me she grew up 20 minutes away from me and she starred in The Worst Witch, a show I used to watch EVERYDAY as a kid.
    Well, the more you know.

    Her boobs look perfect.

    That’s all I got. Cos she is so channeling you know who.

    Somewhere a ’78 Chrysler Cordoba is missing its interior. This would be a dull, dull, dress in any fabric.

    Is that polished cotton? She looks Amish.

    Echoing the thanks to those who informed us all re the paperwork issue but can someone do a solid and explain why the mistake with the visa paperwork was so stupid, plenty of people screw up visa stuff (plenty of people arrive in countries not even realizing they needed one). After that can someone explain why this random nugget is something I HAVE to know and why not knowing is bugging me so much.
