Well Played, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in Balmain

This is one of those looks that I both legitimately like and think is vaguely tacky, all at the same time.

Ten-Year Fugtrospective: The 2005 VMAs


This year’s VMAs are on Sunday — Miley is hosting, Nicki Minaj is performing, Taytay is debuting a new video, sheers and rompers will be worn — and my favorite way to celebrate that is a dazed stumble down memory lane. Warning: The last photo is NSFW. (It’s Ice-T’s wife Coco. You’ve now been doubly warned.)

WTFness As Usual: Miley Cyrus


A Fug National tweeted, “Well, at least Miley is wearing a cape.” And I thought, “Oh, yay, I do love a cape.” I did not consider that she meant it THIS way.

Girl, even a BAD TGI Friday’s employee wears more pieces of flair than that.

Although, I guess you could count the headpiece that looks like “Jeremy Scott Presents: Miley Cyrus Does Carmen Miranda for Moschino For Kohl’s.” But I guess in a way she deserves some credit for the fact that I can look at this and think, “Yep, that makes a warped sort of sense for her.” In other words, she came in like a wrecking ball, and she just closed her eyes and swung… except this time we get to duck and just let her float past.

Fug.S. Open: Maria Sharapova


Presumably, Maria has a lot to worry about this week – like her U.S. Open draw, and whether she’s going to thwart Serena’s run at a Grand Slam.

She maybe could have channeled some of that stress into some retail therapy, instead of wearing the embodiment of bleak stress: tangled, dark, shapeless, consuming. Maybe it seemed edgy and Fashion-With-A-Capital-F on the hanger, but in practice the pants are dumpy and the top is funereal. There isn’t really a sense of fun to the proceedings. Will that foretell her U.S. Open run? Time will tell. Insert ominous music cue here.

For once, I think this is a deployment of The Dreaded Sheer Overlay that is really pretty and totally successful.
