Fugs and Fabs: Mario Testino’s Birthday Party

I cannot tell if this was a fancy dress party or not, but given that everyone is wearing, essentially, the same color palate, I think there were, at the least, very specific GUIDELINES. Spoiler: Some people look lovely, some people look insane, there’s multiple turbans, and Ms. Keira Knightley’s possible uterine secret suddenly doesn’t seem so secret.

What the Fug: “Lady” Victoria Hervey

Happy Halloween. Prepare to be terrified.

Your Afternoon Man: Chris Hemsworth

Well Played, Lena Dunham


Between this, and Keira Knightley yesterday, it appears that Pilgrim Shoes are BACK! I guess they ARE close to being seasonally thematic? I cannot wait until we’re all wearing bonnets and calling each other “Goody.” But while I was neutral at best on Keira’s, I think these are sassy and fun (due to the gold.

Lena Dunham

I also basically love this dress. This is a very cute look for Lena — the kicky Mod thing really suits her, and it totally goes with the font on her book. Yes, I am a person who just thought, “Ooh, her dress coordinates with that font,” and I will not apologize for it.

amfUG: Natasha Bedingfield at the amfAR Inspiration LA Gala

Poor Natasha Bedingfield. I’m sure she’s still paying her mortgage with residuals from her song being the theme to The Hills, but Ellie Goulding seems to have stepped up as the new British Bleached-Blonde Purveyor Of Dance Music With Bad Taste In Clothes. That must be hard.

Natasha Bedingfield

Not that Natasha has given up trying. This effort is, in fact, strenuous and admirable. It’s flagrantly fugtacular, it’s serving up twin pancakes, it’s boxy, it’s got netting… it’s everything you’d want in picking a dress to remind people whose Throne of Ignominy it was FIRST.
