CFDA Awards Well Played: Diane Kruger in Prabal Gurung


Here, let the deliciousness of Diane in Prabal soothe your ruffled soul, post-Revelation of Julianna Margulies’s Undercrackers:

It’s glorious on its own — Kruger and Gurung are a wonderful combination, traditionally — but comparatively, this is the sartorial equivalent of sliding into a giant bathtub, full of perfectly warm water. Perfumed with your favorite extremely expensive soap. Overlooking, say, a beautiful field. At the height of spring! While you’re holding a glass of wine. No, a bottle of wine. While someone dreamy brushes your hair and tells you everything is going to be just fine. It’s like that.

CFDA DEAR GOD WHY Carpet: Julianna Margulies in Michael Kors


I have nothing articulate to say about this, but I CAN offer you a series of grunts, screams, open-mouth soundless sobbing, and wailing:

475545794

WHY. NO. NOOOOOOOOO. NO! NOT YOU TOO, JULIANA MARGULIES! NOOOOO. You, you! You, my precious Carol Hathaway, my beloved Alica Florrick, the hot-husband-haver, Clooney-friending, smart lady. YOU CANNOT DO THIS TO ME.

BETRAYED.

(Is this so we’ll stop talking about whatever the hell went down with you and Archie Panjabi? Because I will not negotiate with this kind of sartorial terrorism.)

CFDA Fug or Fab: Katharine McPhee in Paule Ka


This photo… it was delivered unto me on a digital cloud made of giggles.

katharine mcphee CFDA awards

It’s not even that the outfit is so awful. It’s fine. It’s dripping with fashion. Which is the point of this awards night, so fine. But, and I don’t know how to say this nicely so I’ll just come right out: It’s a very studied attempt to look Extremely Interesting, from someone who, at least on Scorpion, is as flavorful as wet bread (or, her public persona, at least; for all I know, in private, she is The Most Interesting Woman In The World). The whole thing REEKS of editrix, or as if Katharine McPhee desperately wants you to mistake her for Jenna Lyons, and… it’s a nice try, but I am not sure Extremely Interesting is her destiny. It ends up looking like a costume.

Fugs and Fabs: The CFDA Awards


words*

*SEE? Not an Urban Fug Legend. “Don’t forget to go back and write the intro to that post, Jessica,” I told myself. BUT I DID FORGET. And now, Fug Nation, I am leaving for you here the rare but real “I ACCIDENTALLY PUBLISHED ‘words’ POST.” I do think this means we all get cookies or something now, though.

Sorry, stragglers. It’s not personal. We’re just tired. PLENTY of you looked cracked-out enough for us to celebrate you on your own, but isn’t it nice having company sometimes?

CFDA Awards Fug or Fab: Emmy Rossum in J Mendel


I was about to comment that she almost could have worn this to the Met Ball, and that’s true, but I LOVED that Met Ball dress and would never have wanted to replace it.

This is clearly related to the J Mendel that Anna Kendrick wore to the Oscars, except I wish Anna had worn this one. The bright spot of that dress was the back, and, indeed, the back of this one is kind of great, too:
