Royally Played: Wills, Kate and Harry at the Commonwealth Games

QUICK: What did you think Kate wore to a sporting event? Jeans, a blue blazer, a (very subtly) blue-and-white striped top and great hair? YOU ARE CORRECT.

PS: William’s in The Dreaded Casual Pant.

PPS: Harry’s there, too.

PPPS: There’s minor canoodling.

Fug or Fab: Jessica Alba in Tanya Taylor and Zimmerman at Comic-Con


This has a lot of aspects that, taken alone, I totally hate:

Very bare bandeau top, sheer-paneled skirt. But while I am not really in love with that top and never will be, I am tolerating it because I think she’s kind of pulling it off — sort of like when your friend is dating a dude that you totally just do not get, but he seems to legitimately make her happy so you just keep your mouth shut. When it comes to the skirt, though, it’s more like when you fall in love with a short scrawny tattooed drummer despite a lifetime of dating burly football players: It’s unexpected, but fabulous, and you should just go with it. I will happily go anywhere with that skirt.

But let’s get real: I’m sure you really just want to get a closer look at these shoes:

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Fausto Puglisi at Comic-Con


I am sure there are plenty of people who complain that Comic-Con isn’t what it used to be — whatever it is that it used to be — and while I don’t know about that, I WILL say that when Cate Blanchett shows up for your event, you can’t say it isn’t major. (She was there for the panel for The Hobbit 3: Back In The Hobbit, which…don’t even get me started on the fact that they made The Hobbit into a trilogy. Not everything need be split into thirds. Sometimes both your sandwich and your relatively slim volume of elfin adventure can be consumed in one sitting.)

Cate-Blanchett-Comic-Con (2)

I don’t HATE this, but I do think it looks like a Project Runway challenge where everyone had to take her bathrobe and make it into a day dress. It might WIN that challenge, but still.

She looked much less fussy when she arrived at LAX this week:

Fugs and Fabs: Nina Dobrev and Kat Graham at Comic-Con

Noteworthy: ALL of the shoes are good. We’ll always have the shoes.

Additionally, for your interest and discussion: There is a rumor that Nina is dating Ben McKenzie (they were canoodling when they left the Entertainment Weekly party). I obviously have no idea if this is accurate, but if it is, I SUPPORT THIS ENTIRELY.

Casual Fuggerday: Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies

On the off chance that you ever found yourself thinking, “I wonder if Two of the Three Hot Dudes of The Originals ALSO look hotter in sunglasses,” I can help you:

Totally yes. (Also, I’m sure Charles Michael Davis is also hotter in sunglasses, he just didn’t happen to be strolling down the street in them this weekend. Oh, CW. Say what you will about some of their programming, but their skill in casting hot dudes is unparalleled. There’s a reason a friend of mine uses the qualifier “CW Hot” for people, as in, “[Ex-Boyfriend] was ABC Family Cute, but [Current Fling] is CW Hot.” It means something.)

Hemsworthly Played: Chris Hemsworth

It’s Saturday. Sometimes you just want to see a picture of Hemsworth The Greater in a vest:

Sometimes, you think, “I wonder if some enterprising photographer took a picture of Chris Hemsworth’s butt in those pants.” SOMETIMES YOUR WISHES ARE GRANTED. BEHOLD:
