Stella McFug


This is for those of you who thought I had lost my mind in giving Stella McCartney props the other day:

I like this pattern, but as deployed it looks like she got mauled by wallpaper last seen in an episode of The Love Boat. MY GOD, the things that wallpaper has seen.

    She can’t even tailor her own g0dd@mn pants! There must be some reason she does this but I can’t understand why anybody plays along. That wallpaper needs to be steam-cleaned and scrubbed with bleach of the Board of Health is going to shut down the cruise.

      d’oh! “….oR the Board of Health, & etc.” rather than “oF”

    I don’t understand. Is she depressed? This looks like something I would be wearing when I ran out of meds, went to bed for a week, and then crawled into a closet.

    I still want to know how she became a designer. She has no taste. none. nada.

      This.

      I saw her on ET or something getting a “style” award. WHAT????

        I know, right?!! Furthermore, she has financial and social access to the best stylists, designers, make-up artsits, and products in the world. How is it that she always looks like a drowned rat?

        She won “British Designer of the Year ” at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards.
        Do you think daddy paid?

    I think I saw this outfit ON The Love Boat, worn by a woman in her 60s who (adorably, of course) found love late.

    It was better tailored there.

    And what’s up with her hair?

    That’s a nice pajama set. Does it come in other colors?

    I feel like Stella is one of the tailors in the “Emperor’s New Clothes,” – collectively brainwashing all of the kingdom (i.e., Hollywood), that she is FASHION. It seems like only the lay folk (Fug Nation) have any sensibility at all to call out the fact that her clothes are atrocities.

    Does she only have one pair of shoes???

          those are from her own line..knowing her and her vegan ways, this is probably the reason why she can’t wear just any type of shoes as that would fall under animal cruelty if leather was used

    I am not on board with the trend of elastic-waist pants.

    Pajamas with Eraserfeet. And look, the little Eraserfeet minions are gathering behind her.

    I believe I had a similar shirt in 1983 that my mom bought me at The Limited, but let’s look at the tailoring on the sleeves. My 8 year old is a better seamstress! Yellow is NOT her color. At all. While they were butchering the sleeves, is she that busy she couldn’t have one of her staff HEM her pants? And please, please let’s burn those whitewalled pumps immediately. They are not iconic; they are ugly. I realize that it makes packing easier to wear the same shoe with every outfit, but honey, if you are receiving an international fashion award, pack appropriately.

    Absolute truth – my monitored jumped to her lower half before I could see the whole post. I guessed it would be Stella. Bingo ! Such consistently fugly, ill-fitting shmattes.

    If it was just the shirt, or just pants (and ones that fit) then it could be marginally more acceptable. But together it looks like she just rolled out of bed (the hair isn’t helping that image)

      I feel similarly (about the shirt). I don’t know if the pants would work with anything, but this design and its color as a top could really liven up a lot of solid dark skirt or pair of paints.

    Why does she insist on wearing all her pants so low on her hips, it looks silly and unflattering.

    I honestly think her top with different pants would be totally cute, AND I think that properly hemmed and with another top, those pants would also be fun but the styling sweet god why.

      I was going to note that. Either one, alone, just maybe …

      What really kills me is her eternal plain hair.

    Ridiculous! FUG!!! And, can someone please take those shoes away from her and burn them? Whoever it is will be doing the world a favor!

    How is someone who dresses like this paid to make clothes for other people? This is so awful, I don’t even know where to start. And OMG the shoes with the white platforms again! Please make. them. stop!

    and, dude, she’s STILL wearing those shoes.

      Look, this is all anyone needs to know about her clothing line.

      It’s no YSL couture, that’s for certain.

      And I’m not buying the idea that vegan shoes are cruelty free. If I have to see them coming and going, there’s a cruelty there, all right.

    I think this outfit was inspired by a book I read freshman year of college: http://www.capriciousreader.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/yellow.jpg
    Tell me that cover isn’t virtually identical!

    I’m afraid those hideous shoes are her “thing.” Look behind Stella in the photograph like anny pointed out. Those stupid shoes are legion, and they are coming for us.

    Oy, that’s really not her color is it? She is absolutely trapped in her own little bubble, whereby everyone tells her her designs are fabulous and she’s the bomb. It’s not true, Stella!

    My parents had a couch with that same exact print in the mid ’60s. Seriously, I saw some baby photos over the weekend and that couch was there.

    Where’a Marlon Brando and his cry of anguish when you need him? “STELLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Instead of giving her props, I suggest suspenders. She looks like an extra in a late sixties, low budget horror movie.

    I mentioned this in the Lucy Liu thread before I even saw this latest Stella atrocity. On the top of the Go Fug page I am getting a click through shopping ad for Stella McCartney and Adidas. It’s kind of blowing my mind on many levels.

    I love the pattern. I really do. And I totally agree that if you split it up and the tailoring was done properly, it would be very cute. I would completely and utterly wear the hell out of the top with a faded pair of jeans.

    As is, however, she looks like she just escaped from some kind of institution.

    I’ve been without power for 11 days now and I have not yet worn my PJ’s out of the house. But even if I had, they would look better than this and I could actually walk in them.

    There’s a woman hidden in the pattern of that suit, and she’s creeping along…

        It’s been years since I read that story. Our professor asked us for our expert opinion, and our consensus was major post-partum depression.

    I thought she kinda looked like a Von Trapp cousin for whom Maria made some additional play clothes out of curtains. And since I irrationally like the idea of clothes from curtains, I almost liked this. Then my brain started functioning again.

    Uh oh. Someone peed all over Gopher’s formal purser uniform.

    Maybe she got the idea for this after watching Love Boat re-runs with multiple incontinence ads in between. I see nothing but fug, pee stains, and a future of tripping on overly long pants in this. That woman can design some seriously ugly clothes.

    Ha, ha, ha, ha! She’s wearing my sister’s 80′s couch. Or it’s wearing her. And she looks like she hasn’t washed or slept since the 80′s.

    You know, it simply ANGERS me that she is so famous when there are GOOD artists out there who are trying to make it in the fashion world.

    This entire outfit is an atrocity. I wonder what other well-known designers think of this mess. It is like a mockery of the fashion world. That’s how bad this is. Grrrr.

    If you look at pictures of Paul and Linda from their youthyou will notice that they dressed oddly at times… It was beyond casual, it was dowdy, it was funky but it was PAUL and LINDA! Maybe STella just took their look and made it expensive?? I can see Linda in a Villager( look it up) shirtwaist in that pattern, or Paul in pants like that… way too long.
    I always found it endearing and maybe that is what she is going for…. but with a big price tag?

      Paul earned the right to be as weird as he likes; being one of the major musical artists of the 20th century will do that for a guy. Stella hasn’t earned that right and doesn’t appear to be an artist of any sort whatsoever You have to know and understand the rules before you can break them. You also have to have a particular purpose in mind. i really do not believe that this woman is capable of doing her job.

    For goodness’ sake, get those trousers taken up or you’ll trip over them! No, on second thoughts, forget it. Go back to bed and hide under the blankets.

    This is an FU to all struggling, talented designers, the same way that Snooki writing a novel is to writers who can’t get published.
