Fug Madness 2015 Play-In Game 2: Johnny Depp vs. Brad Pitt


Or, as we’re calling this in-house, “The Battle of the Two Guys Who Are Fighting The Hot.”  Let this remind you, Misters Depp and Pitt, that fighting the hot does NO ONE any good. Allow your hotness to roam free amongst us! It’s for the greater good.

The winner gets Rita Ora. In a matchup, not in body, although I suppose she could also mail herself over there. And don’t forget: The photos in these posts are not the only ones in consideration, but instead, the entire past year from post-Oscars 2014 to Feb 28 of this year. You can always do further research into Brad Pitt’s archives, and Johnny Depp’s archives, to make your most informed decision. And when you are ready to vote….

Whose fug reigns supreme?

Fug the Show: The Royals on E!, season premiere recap


E!’s first foray into scripted series is imbued with slavish, documentary-style realism and an unwavering and sensitive commitment to factual… never mind, I can’t say that without laughing. It’s insane, and everyone in it is about as regal as a root canal. The equivalent would be if the Kardashians actually did get their hands on a country and installed themselves there as a monarchy.

Fug Madness 2015 Play-In Game 1: Kate “Duchess of Cambridge” Middleton vs. Amal Alamuddin Clooney


It’s a Posh-Off. The Gloves Heard ‘Round The World versus The Unbreakable Nude Shoe Habit. Or, “Kamal Alamiddleton,” as I dubbed it in my head.

The matchup may not be a popular one, and as with any of these contenders, it doesn’t mean we suddenly don’t like or admire the people IN the clothes we are discussing (both women have handled their level of limelight with extreme dignity, in my opinion). But it’s fun to get some fresh faces into the action. And Kate’s style has its issues. Amal’s does too. Both are wildly public figures, even if it’s for different reasons or in a different way than many of the rest, and so their decisions end up sending just as much of a message. And Fug Nation is never short on opinions about both, so why not kick open the door?

The winner faces off against Lady Gaga, which is obviously going to be very challenging as they are all so similar. There is more than just this representative sample, too, so visit Kate’s archive if you need, and Amal’s.

Reasonably Played: The Duchess of Cambridge in Catherine Walker at the Irish Guards St. Patrick’s Day Parade


Last year, Duchess Kate recycled a frugal Hobbs coat for this event, having been fresh off a seemingly frivolous trip to the Maldives that had raised some eyebrows. Today she wore something new – a bespoke Catherine Walker — for the St. Patrick’s Day parade at Mons Barracks, and while I understand one can’t always indulge the temptation to wear green on that kind of occasion, I do prefer the 2014 model to this muddy brown look. That at least felt like a taste of spring. Still, it’s not an unattractive cut, and Wills wore the Irish Guards uniform, which is always a treat. Let’s dive in and discuss.

Well Played, Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren (and a Variety of Dudes)


well-played

In which a whole bunch of Shailene’s current and former (and former AND current) co-stars come out and look handsome standing next to her. (Although I think she looks pretty swell all on her own, too.)

Fugs and Fines and Fabs: A Variety of Paleyfests


Paleyfest is, for those of you who don’t know, a series of panels featuring the casts of various popular TV shows held at the Paley Center every year. I’ve never been to one — although I did drive past the Paley Center one year while the Dallas one was getting underway and saw Larry Hagman in his ten-gallon hat, posing with Lindy Grey, and, yes, it was transcendent — but rumor has it they are very entertaining. Also, people wear outfits to them. Let’s eyeball them.
