Well Played: Kate, Wills, and George’s Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand, Day Ten, Part I


well-played

Today (so far) involved puppies! William holding George! And bracelets! ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME, ROYALS? I cannot take it: THOSE ARE MY THREE FAVORITE THINGS. Anyway, it was W&K’s last day in New Zealand (which has looked so lovely; I really want to visit and I can’t wait for our fictional Fug Nation Wine Cardigan and Bracelet Retreat), and they popped over to the Royal New Zealand Police College and took a stroll through the Civic Center to meet and greet people — including, I believe, our own Fug National Lipstick Librarian, from whom I hope we get a full report! — before heading over to the airport to fly off to Sydney. Australia promises a reception at the Opera House and at LEAST one more outfit today alone, so I will be posting again about that at some point (probably quite late in Los Angeles, for our now traditional Midnight Post).

Here, Kate is wearing her Rebecca Taylor suit  — all blue suits for the royals this morning, all around! – which we first saw back in 2012. Taylor is from New Zealand, so that’s a nice farewell nod.

UPDATED: The final photo now courtesy of our own Lipstick Librarian, who had an excellent vantage point!

AS ALWAYS: Our complete coverage lives here; if it seems like you missed Day Nine, it’s because they had Day Nine off and presumably spent it sitting around eating  Twizzlers and playing with the baby.

Fug the Show: Lindsay on OWN, season 1, episode 6


The nut of this episode is about Lindsay being inconsiderate and blowing off Elle Indonesia, but the part I will cherish the most is the first chunk, in which it’s revealed that I believe Dina Lohan’s ghost writer hates her with the quiet fire of a thousand burning suns and might therefore be my soulmate.

First, though, the weirdest bit: A title card tells us that Lindsay has decided to film herself as part of the show. They cut back to the footage three times in the course of the hour, all clearly taken on the same night because she’s wearing this outfit in different iterations, and the stuff they show later makes me wonder what the true order of the footage would be. Are you tantalized yet? Spoiler: It involves wine. Which, if it were consumed, I would be willing to bet was before this piece. She clearly decided to do some kind of cracked-out acting exercise, because — as the camera jumpily zooms in, in, in, in, and then out, out, out, out, about three times, she goes from looking like a spleen-snacking serial murderer…

… to a crying goon:

So I guess… if any producers out there are looking to do some kind of tear-sodden cross between The Godfather and Candyman, Lindsay Lohan has just auditioned for it.

And now for the scene that might be my spirit animal.

Well Played: Myleene Klass in Dennis Basso at the Olivier Awards


well-played

I’ve always liked Myleene Klass. We did something with her years ago and she was incredibly cool, so I was always sad that her hosting opportunity in the U.S. — I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! — was on such a turd of a show.

Yeah, I’d say she rebounded from that just fine.

High Fugshion: New York Bridal Week: Naeem Khan and Carolina Herrera


MORE GOWNS. Just let the glory of them wash over you. Bonus points to Naeem Khan for going Full Drama with the veils. Now that I’m old, I am really into the Old School Long-Ass Crazy Dramatic veil, the kind of veil you wear to your arranged marriage with the Prince of Catatonia, where his first glimpse of your face is when your veil is removed at the end of the ceremony and he is stunned by your beauty! Too bad for him that you’re only marrying him to settle a decades-long score with the Catatonic people and you’re actually in love with your handsome dancing instructor, Jacques. You’re all planning that exact wedding right now, aren’t you? Because I was led to believe that you were.

Fug the Show: Hart of Dixie recap, season 3, episode 17


I must say, I thought this episode was VERY cute. In short: Zoe visits a psychic who tells her that she’s been cursed for breaking up George and Lemon (“Lemorge,” as Zoe puts it, which is NOT a name that makes one likely to ‘ship a pair) and who tells her that the only way she can get uncursed is by getting them back together. This is a Class A Zoe Hart Shenanigan of the Week, and it’s excellent. It also goes about as badly as you can imagine, as Lemorge do NOT have feelings for each other, beyond each really wanting to repeat their recent roll in the hay. In other news, AB’s Mystery Knight has been revealed, and it’s Barry Watson, and of course he is somehow related to the Mayor of Fillmore because when this show doesn’t know what to do for conflict it has someone date someone from Fillmore (albeit generally with amusing results, so I will allow it. Also, I like Barry Watson). And Vivian’s ex-husband hates Wade for a variety of reasons and Vivian decides to make this WADE’S problem rather than dealing with her own ex-husband herself because, as Jill pointed out so wisely in the comments a couple of weeks ago, Vivian leaves all the heavy lifting in their relationship to Wade. Vivian also wears something highly inappropriate, but Lemon looks AWESOME. So we have that going for us.
