Well Played: Emma Stone in Versace


This is one of the most gently classy things I think Donatella’s House of WTF has ever produced.

Fugs and Fines: Zooey Deschanel for Tommy Hilfiger Launch

I had forgotten that this was even happening, but Zooey and Tommy seem like a pretty natural fit in some ways; indeed, the collection is saccharinely named “To Tommy From Zooey.” He MAY want to return that to sender. It’s hard to say.

Fugs of Leon: Lily Aldridge in Marc Jacobs

I love this picture.

This was for the Save Venice Enchanted Garden Ball — apparently Venice is famous for elaborate carnival headgear, so leave it off at your own peril — which raised $700,000 to help save the city from the constant threat of erosion. And the sight of Padma in that thing is truly marvelous to behold. I sincerely hope that is her Facebook profile picture, and if she and I knew each other, this picture would come up whenever she called me. It’s like someone tried to make Marie Antoinette out of plants.

Her dress has an unfortunate and HIGHLY questionable diamond right on her nethers, but as the clothes go, it’s Aldridge — and the wasted beauty of that glorified panty sheath — that takes the cake. And then smashes it into the floor destructively, like someone who doesn’t understand how freaking awesome cake is and that it should be respected.

Hilariously Played, Anne Hathaway

Okay, I’m finally excited about Anne Hathaway again:

Fifty years from now, she is going to be the NUTTIEST old lady ever. We just have to be patient.

Fugphy Wife: Malin Akerman in Jonathan Simkhai

This is a perfect storm of somebody doing as little as possible to sell an outfit:

Granted, it’s never fair to compare anyone to a model, but at least she is standing ramrod straight and giving the top its best shot at looking architecturally cool. I DO think it’s possible the tube-top thing underneath is a cup size too small, which is why her chest appears to be frowning, but I mean… she’s slouching, her hair looks really blah, and none of her accessories are giving this any zing at all. So while the dress itself is just unflattering and wrong on her, she had a few chances to at least TRY and deflect that, and she didn’t take them. We are EASILY SWAYED by shiny bright things, Malin. USE THAT.

Friends With Better Fugs: Brooklyn Decker in The Row

Brooklyn Decker is so pretty and this is doing her no favors. I cannot even imagine what the late, lamented Dumpster would have said about this:

I believe this is Blazer By WHY and Suit By YOU’RE BETTER THAN THIS paired with shoes by Actually Those Shoes Are Great. (Someone please start a shoe line called Actually Those Shoes Are Great. Thanks.)
