Fug Madness 2014: Sweet Sixteen, The Charo Bracket Top Half


Personally, I kind of want these two to get stuck in an elevator together for like six hours, because I sort of feel like they might make friends and Rihanna could loosen Zosia up, while Zosia might convince RiRi to wear pants occasionally, and then RiRi could end up guest-starring on Girls as, like, this very deadpan girl who lives across the hall from Shosh and whom Shosh really wants to make friends with, to no avail. Seriously, I think this could work. While I work on my fanfic, check out Rihanna’s archives, as well as Zosia’s, and then get your vote on:

Heidi has had a better year than in the past, but it’s a mark of her damnable oeuvre that a better year still includes this:

How has she not been on Dancing With The Stars yet? I mean, she’s probably too close to being an ACTUAL star, but she’s certainly dressing like she has a cha-cha inside her just begging to run free.

Also begging to run free:

Well, this Jessica Biel outfit wasn’t in our sub, so I’m forced to link to it. If you don’t click, let me sum up: Square translucent sleeves and only half a skirt — meaning, a peplum on her left, and knee-length on her right. Yeah. It happened.

As did this:

I know it was the Met Ball, and the theme was rock-and-roll, but… not only is this not a great fit with that, but you can’t give her any kind of costumey pass on the leggings because we already know she’s prepared to wear see-through pants in real life:

DON’T HUDGENS YOURSELF. Justin’s eyes are so glassy. He knows. HE KNOWS. And he fears.

And he SHOULD fear:

You don’t have to compete with Beyonce, kid. You’re both lovely women, but trying to out-cray Beyonce is like bringing a butter knife to a bayonet fight. You just end up looking sad. Although it’s easier for you to eat butter, so there’s that.

Biel did wear some things that were not transparent, like this questionable skirt on a Dior gown (although I’d kill for J.Lawr to get anything that questionable), and some questionable shoulder frosting, and this questionable matador-ish pantsuit:

Fug Madness 2014, Round One: Charo Bracket, Bottom Half

As a refresher: The photos and links in each matchup post are NOT the only outfits eligible; rather, they’re a representative sample of the body of work from this period (late Feb, after the 2013 Oscars, through this year’s Oscars). Polls close after 24 hours, so if you like to research your choices — on our site, Getty Images, Google, whatever — have at it and just make sure you vote before the game ends. If you need a primer on how all this works, pursue the the FAQ. And, most importantly, have fun.

Katy Perry is not to be counted out. She may be a two seed, but she came in swinging to this one. Katy’s archive is a veritable trove of delights and you could spend a happy hour there, but in case you don’t have an hour, allow me to make some suggestions, like your sommelier of fug. If you like sparkly religious iconography, you’ll love what she wore to the Met Gala. If you love figure-skating and the 90s, this will be your jam. If you’re obsessed with the idea of wearing all of your hotel room curtains at once, can I suggest a cup of this crazy? Finally, frankly, I don’t even know what this is.

And that’s not even the half of it. She wore this — ON PURPOSE — to see Britney in Vegas. Like, in public, not in Britney’s hotel room:

She apparently had a tutu fetish this year, too, looking at the previous look and then at this one:

She’s always dressed like a crazy person on stage, and this year was no different. I don’t even know what’s happening here. Does her vagina have a tiny little loincloth? A literal cloth over her loins?

This is also the year, by the way, that she dressed up like Fraulein Cher Horowitz, and wore this Sheer Constellation Extravaganza and also brought out this ridiculous grill:
