Fug or Fab: Diane Kruger in Jason Wu

I kind of like this, on a noncommittal, theoretical level.

But does it also look like weirdly imprecise surgery?

Fugs and Fabs: Kristen Stewart


Somewhere, I feel like SWINTON just looked at this — and by “somewhere,” I mean “probably in a tree house in as-yet undiscovered Scottish forest that exists outside of normal human longitude but still gets decent WiFi” — and nodded with approval.

I’D look like a dumb-ass in this, mostly because I’d spill all over it immediately, but she looks cool and groovy and interesting. Points for sunglasses and a red lip, both of which go a long way toward making me like anything.

She wore this on Fallon last night:

Well Played, Julia Stiles in Rubin Singer at the Jason Bourne Premiere


well-played

No disrespect to the Stiles, but I always kind of forget she’s IN the Bourne movies until I go see one, and she pops up, and I say (in my head) “OH RIGHT JULIA STILES!” (I don’t blame her for this. She’s not bad in the films at all — I am PLEASED to be reminded that she’s in them! — but her role is sort of generic. Or at least it used to be — I missed the most recent Bourne movie, so please let me know if it was revealed that she’s actually a wizard or something.)

Less forgettable, however, is her dress:

She looks great, but best of all is this fabric. Wouldn’t it make fantastic lining for the inside of the envelopes that come with your personalized stationery? What a delight when your loved ones open your little kissy missives to see this! What a balm when the people to whom you’ve written hate mail finally notice it! Truly, a win-win situation.

GFY Giveaway: Roses and Rot by Kat Howard


Book giveaway time! I’ve been looking forward to this one:

roses and rot hardcover cover

THE PRIZE: We have five copies of (the very well-reviewed!) Roses and Rot by Kat Howard to give away today! (Publishers Weekly named it Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror Novel of Summer 2016.) What’s it about? Let’s find out!

What would you sacrifice for everything you ever dreamed of?

Imogen has grown up reading fairy tales about mothers who die and make way for cruel stepmothers. As a child, she used to lie in bed wishing that her life would become one of these tragic fairy tales because she couldn’t imagine how a stepmother could be worse than her mother now. As adults, Imogen and her sister Marin are accepted to an elite post-grad arts program—Imogen as a writer and Marin as a dancer. Soon enough, though, they realize that there’s more to the school than meets the eye. Imogen might be living in the fairy tale she’s dreamed about as a child, but it’s one that will pit her against Marin if she decides to escape her past to find her heart’s desire.

THE TASK: As always, I’m picking our winners at random. But to keep it fun, please name your favorite fairy tale.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Prizing courtesy of the publisher; open to residents of the US only. Thank you!)

Fugs and Fabs: Hip Hop Honors


This was honoring the Queens of Hip Hop, but if you didn’t know that, it would be fair to assume they were celebrating questionable pants.

I have a lot of notes about this. Mostly that it feels like three different dresses that have been melded together.
