CDFA Awards Olsenly Played, The Olsen Sisters in The Row


This makes me laugh. Mary-Kate and Ashley totally made Elizabeth put on an Olsen Twins costume:

They actually look cool, I think — though they’re all in Olsen Coven Black, this all seems to be hewing closer to Chic and Groovy rather than Grey Gardens Voluminous, and that’s the side of the line we all want to stay on, in general.

But there was one part of the costume they couldn’t quite get to stick:

I love that photo. Elizabeth is smiling widely, while M-K is ignoring this transgression and Ashley is discovering that it might just be contagious. This picture makes me wish they’d let Elizabeth tag along all the time.

Someone please remind me, come Fug Madness 2017, that Constance Jablonski exists. I feel like she’s slipping through some lucky cracks there.

CFDAs Kookily Played: Lena Dunham and Zosia Mamet


Lena’s hair looks really cute this length.

But in her Creatures of the Wind dress, she has the mien of someone who is EXTREMELY annoyed that her Learning Annex class, Etsy Ross: Freedom Through Crafting, got cancelled before she could show everyone the shoes she stayed up until 5 a.m. gluing and which she excitedly named “Peeps-Toes.”

what of zosia?

CFDAs Fug or Fab: Heidi Klum in Roland Mouret


On the very bright side, this is much more fashion-y and architectural and unexpected than anything Heidi has worn in a long time. It’s almost like she remembered that she’s a supermodel who has the body for things that don’t involve a minimum rating of PG-13.

But. Always a but with me. For whatever reason, Roland Mouret clothes often makes me think: a) napkin-folding seminar, b) melted origami, and c) a hair too tight. All of those things are true again here, proving that sometimes even the most noble experiments **

** Apparently our blogging software ate the end of the above sentence when it published the post. I have decided that’s an act of the tech gods, because they didn’t like whatever I wrote, so maybe y’all can finish it better.  How would YOU complete the thought? “Sometimes even the most noble experiments…” what? Should get tabled? Explode the beaker? Emit noxious fumes? WHAT.

CFDA Awards WTF: Ciara in Cavalli


BLESS YOU CIARA:

2016 CFDA Fashion Awards

Never change. I mean that. In these dark hours, this world needs a woman they can look to who will rise to the challenge of answering the question, “but what would Elle Woods wear to a toga party?”
