Fugs and Fabs: The Marie Claire Image Maker Awards


Because every magazine needs a gala. (We already featured Kristen Stewart, in case you missed it.)(SO MUCH STUFF happened before and after the Globes, y’all. Does that mean next week is going to be totally barren?)

Well Played Covers: Elle’s Women in TV Issue

These are good covers, and it feels nice to get to type that for once.

Fug or Fab: Mariah Carey


fug-or-fab

Well, I’m not sure this is entirely her cup size.

But, cleavage aside, there’s something understated about it that I appreciate from her. I always think of Mariah’s stuff as being a little dated,with a modicum of fromage, but this definitely more current. It might even be groovy on her. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m having a vision of love, but I am feeling emotions, and I don’t want to cry. So that’s something.

The Fug Wants What It Wants: Selena Gomez in Louis Vuitton


fug-or-fab

This was a week of designer-focused events, no? First the Vivienne Westwood-tinged Art of Elysium, then Stella’s fashion presentation, and this Louis Vuitton-sponsored UNICEF gala. The good news for LV is, the outfits on display at this one are WAY less objectionable than most of what we saw at the other two.

Then again, they weren’t universally GREAT, either.

SELENA GOMEZ

The skirt is cool, but let me count the things I question: The ruffles, the chest dart that legit looks like a nipple from a distance (which is IMPOSSIBLE because you CANNOT see nipples through leather, AND YET), the zipper all down the front, the belt tied off at her navel and puckering the leather. When you add up all those elements, I almost think it’s crazy that this ISN’T a bellbottom jumpsuit. Not that I’m hankering for one — I’m sure I would have fugged that, too — but it just feels like there’s a point where they should’ve gone all the way, and didn’t.

Unfug or Fab: Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton


unfug-it-up

Jennifer Connelly is arguably the celeb most married to Louis Vuitton, with the possible exception of Michelle Williams. Even Alicia Vikander diverges sometimes. I think this is because Connelly — and Williams, actually — doesn’t appear in public often enough lately to NEED to diverge, and when they do, half the time it’s at LV-sponsored events. As with this one:

That’s striking and all, but I get the sense that if she wasn’t standing there with her hand clamped on her hip, it’d also be shapeless — like, she’s giving it something that it doesn’t offer without human intervention. I also don’t fancy the shoulder holes too much. What’s the point? Close those up, or cut them off and decorate the waist with that leathery detailing, and call it finished.

Also, I think she is addicted to booties.

Fug or Fab: Nicole Kidman in Louis Vuitton


Is it terrible that my first thought upon seeing this was, “Nicole Kidman’s wax figure looks great”?

6th Biennial UNICEF Ball - Arrivals

Probably. Although it’s certainly better than thinking, “Man, Nicole Kidman’s wax figure looks rough.”

Despite the fact that this is a weirdly posed, statue-like, snap of her, I almost like this dress. I like a lot of aspects of it: the colors, the detailing, the sequins. I think my argument is that you can’t do a super deep vee AND a super high slit at the same time, without looking like you’re wearing a wrap dress that’s rebelling.
