Fugs and Fabs: The Summer of Fan Bingbing


Get over the midweek speed bump with some help from Fan Bingbing, who has had a way more interesting summer than I have.

Fug and Fab: Lizzy Caplan in Proenza Schouler


fug-or-fab

Lizzy has some of the most interesting tastes in town, and THANK YOU SWEET FRIEND for not punting even though it’s August and the weather has been hella weird and it’s easier not to leave the house.

This is a scrolldown for me, because while I love the jungle element of the dress, the shoes make as much sense as a lion in an ant farm: They just don’t seem at home (although SLIGHTLY less likely to react to that by eating their enemies). Get back to me when you’re in a ballet entitled Christian Louboutin Presents: The Birth of Our Savior Blue Ivy, starring Lizzy Caplan as whoever held Beyonce’s laptop to document her contractions.

Fugs and Fabs and WTFs: Serena Williams at the US Open


We’re LIMPING toward the VMAs, so I actually decided to take advantage of a curated photo album, and present to you: Things Serena Has Worn To Flushing Meadows In The Aughts. Very few of them are worthy of her.

Your Afternoon Chat: Your Weirdest Date


As you may know, I am single and I have gone on many a date in my lifetime and I am not alone in this. The best part of dating — other than possibly, you know, meeting someone awesome and falling madly in love and getting to stop going on dates — is that, if nothing else, it will give you a lifetime of stories with which to horrify, amuse, and entertain your friends (and, occasionally, the people with whom you are currently on a date). Bring me the story of your weirdest date, Fug Nation. I’ll start — and there are so many; I am surely forgetting whichever one is Heather’s favorite. Ahem: I once went out with a dude who told me that he didn’t have a refrigerator because it was, and I quote, “too loud next to [his] head.” Which…look, this was a hundred years ago. AND I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS. (Eventually, I’ll tell you about Pathological Toupee Guy, or Mr Master Cleanse, who at least we got to work into The Royal We. Oh, also, Obsessive Tom Brady Dude, who we also used in the book. Oh my god, am I the Taylor Swift of throwaway book mentions?!)

Your turn!

Scrolldown Fug or Fab: Sarah Paulson

Things start out fine, with her hair — as usual — tempting me like flaxen evil to cut off my hair.

But is this a Be Careful What You Wish For scenario, in which the lady’s attempt at unusual footwear has resulted in lemon-colored pumps that REALLY look like they got lost on the way to the Teen Choice Awards? Spicy shoes are something I generally support, but gown and scrolldown don’t look like they have ANYTHING to say to one another, like if you sent Helen Mirren to dinner with Justin Bieber and told them they could ONLY discuss books that don’t have pictures in them.

Feh or Hmm: Laura Michelle Kelly


Broadway’s Laura Michelle Kelly is making a bit of a run here on GFY, because a) it’s August and nobody else is trying, and b) she’s accepting so many invitations. And what she wore to her latest event isn’t necessarily super NOTEWORTHY…

… but she was captioned “Lea Michele Kelly” and so now all I can picture is her slowly trying to Single White Female the erstwhile Rachel Berry, starting slowly with cutouts and ombre hair and then ending in six months with bangs and a master class in Red Carpet Muggery. Is it wrong that I want that to happen?
