Well Played, Lily James


For one brief, shining moment, I thought she was wearing INSANE shoes that included some kind of robotic calf attachments:


Luckily (or unluckily??) Lily is not yet bionic. The good news is, she IS extremely well dressed here. I didn’t know I needed a mini-dress covered in stars but APPARENTLY I DO.

The Fuggest Ride: Oona Chaplin

This photo makes me laugh.

It’s like she’s an emissary from Planet Jumpsuiter and she JUST recognized the person she’s meant to find, so she can deliver to them the magical Scroll of Crackpants — an ancient epistle that includes the secret recipe to committing Fashion Most Foul. Don’t be too hard on this alien visitor, y’all. She just thinks she’s being helpful.

Well Played, Britt Robertson


Well, she needs a bracelet, OBVIOUSLY:

But this dress is charming on her and I want to run up to her and embrace her for wearing those shoes. I won’t, because that would be weird, but I WANT to.

Fug Madness 2015: One Fugging Winner, One Fugging Moment

It was a tremendous Fug Madness tournament this year. We had two complete nail biters — Rihanna vs. Cara Delevingne in the second round, and Rita Ora vs. Lindsay Lohan in the Elite Eight, both of which came down to the last half-hour of voting as the pendulum swung wildly back and forth between them. We had new Cinderellas in Keke Palmer and Kate Walsh, who made it all the way to the Sweet Sixteen, and a slew of top seeds who delivered on the promises of a year’s worth of heinous insults our eyeballs. We made tournament history by giving us the first-ever final game rematch, between Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian. And now, at long last, we have our official winner:

THE ROYAL WE Has Arrived!

Thank you so much for your patience as we’ve banged the drum about the impending arrival of our own royal baby. It’s a boy! AND a girl! And its birthday is today:


Yes, our new novel is finally in stores today, and available online. If you haven’t already, we can’t wait for you to meet Nick and Bex; if you read the sample chapters, well, get ready, because now you get Freddie. If you’re not sure whether you want to read it, you can still sample the first seven chapters for free, and we are THRILLED to report that we received a really exciting review from Entertainment Weekly in the current issue. We also landed at No. 3 on the Must List (we might have shrieked; Jon Hamm is basically hovering over us, which is exactly as we would have designed it).

We’re so excited, and we can’t tell you how grateful we are for all the amazing support we’ve gotten from Fug Nation from step one: as we wrote it, as we went insane trying to trim it down, and in the last few crazy months leading up to today. You guys are wonderful, and we wouldn’t be here without you. We hope you love The Royal We as much as we do — the only people who know better than y’all how hard we worked on it are the ones who live with us.

Bonus: There will be booze at our signings tonight in New York City, and Thursday in Washington, D.C. If you are in the area, please come by – we’d love to raise a glass and thank you in person for being awesome. Click here to jump to the details about the signings.

What’s the book about? Once more, with feeling:

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it’s Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain’s future king. And when Bex can’t resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick’s sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he’s fated to become.

Which is how she gets into trouble.

Now, on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex is faced with whether everything she’s sacrificed for love — her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself – will have been for nothing.
