Fug File: Calvin Klein

High Fugshion: Grab Bag, Part 2, New York Fashion Week Fall 2014


In which Jeremy Scott and Ralph Lauren mingle for probably the only time. Although if you think about it, those Sochi 2014 cardigans DID look a bit like Jeremy Scott had HIJACKED Ralph Lauren.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Well Played, Lupita Nyong’o


First Ralph Lauren, now Calvin Klein. I wonder which iconic American designer she’ll be wearing Saturday at the SAGs:

Here is the power of the right woman in the right dress. By all accounts, this is a dress that I should hate. It’s a thong over a tube top. AND YET. AND BUT. BUT YET. YET BUT. She looks so good in it. It looks just clean and crisp and athletic, rather than crazy or weird or cracked out for the mere purpose of being cracked out. No jewelry. Nothing superfluous. It’s just like….her. I can’t get over it.

Micaela Erlanger, who has been styling Lupita (to the best of my knowledge), should be raising her rates. For everyone. Because dude. This has all been going so well. (Famous last words: please don’t show up at the Oscars wearing an accordion folder for a skirt, Lupita.)

Emmys Fug or Fab Carpet: Rose Byrne (plus Bobby Cannavale)


First of all, I cannot believe Bobby Cannavale won last night. He WAS really good on the episodes of Boardwalk Empire that I watched before I quit  it in a huff, and trust me: He was GREAT in Kingpin, which no one watched other than me, despite the fact that it had OPIUM DENS and MAN-EATING TIGERS and VOODOO and DOG ASSASSINATIONS and vague suggestions of HOMOEROTIC INCEST. That show SERIOUSLY had EVERYTHING. So, I am happy for him — and he called Rose Byrne the “love of [his] life” in his acceptance, so I am basically totally on board with all of this, theoretically. But what do we think about her DRESS? Are we on board?

New York Fugshion Week: Runway Fugs and Fabs of Day 8


Come for the crackpot Calvin Klein; stay for some crackpot hats. And then stick a fork in this Fashion Week, because it is DONE, and lots of people are probably hungry.
