CFDAs Fug Carpet: Anne V in Jonathan Simkhai

Death is not an option, Fug Nation. Your choice: the sheer trend…

I know Lupita’s weren’t technically culottes, but I fear these baggy shapeless sartorial con artists are drawing a bead on pelvises everywhere. If two is pattern but three is a trend, who will Number Three be?

CFDAs Fug Carpet: Marion Cotillard in Dior

I wish I could have been present for the meeting where this dress was presented:

I like to think that it was a charming white lace shift dress and then someone swept in and was all, “I don’t know. Don’t you think it’s MISSING something? It’s so NICE and so SIMPLE and so FLATTERING. It needs something EYE-CATCHING. It needs something RIDICULOUS. We need to see if we can con some people into swooning over something outright ABSURD, because we are DIOR. Let’s give her BREASTS A DUST RUFFLE. I AM A GENIUS GOODBYE.”

It’s a shame, because you can see in this closer shot that the detailing is fab:

CFDAs Well Played: Coco Rocha in Christian Siriano

I love Coco. She is never not modeling.

This could be the cover of one of those obscure regional lifestyle magazines that only ever pop up on coffee tables in fertility clinics, or really nice dentist offices, or hotel rooms, where you look at it and think, “THAT is not my lifestyle. WHY is that not my lifestyle?!?”

It’s just as glorious in full:

hooray for drama


CFDAs Scrolldown Fug Carpet: Lupita Nyong’o in Suno

Let’s start in my happy place.

I thought this was going to be SO CUTE when I saw this. The pattern and colors are so fun, and her makeup artist did another really good job. No matter how much stuff they decorate her with, it never overwhelms her features; she always shines through, and that is so hard. Talk about being genetically blessed. She got every single gift they were offering the day she went through the lottery.

Okay. It’s time. From my happy place… to my crappy place:

boo hoo


CFDA Awards Nakedly Played: Rihanna in Custom Adam Selman

Can this finally be the death knell of the sheer trend? BECAUSE HOW MUCH MORE SHEER CAN WE GET? Is this not THE MOST SHEER that we can, as a people, TRULY ACCOMPLISH? Have we not reached the OUTER LIMITS OF SHEER? Should not every other sheer dress put down its sheer sword and surrender? All that sheer longs to be and hopes to do has now been DONE. SHEER MUST NEEDS DIE TONIGHT BECAUSE NOTHING CAN BE SHEERER THAN THIS.

A note: I don’t know your job/life, but if your boss would not be best pleased to pop into your office and see nipples on your monitor, perhaps save this until she’s off at Starbucks.
