Fug File: feathers

Selita EFugs

Dude, I get it:

We’re ALL excited for the new Muppets movie. It doesn’t mean you have to DRESS LIKE ONE.

Well Played, Camilla Belle

I was all set to put this particular look up for a vote, but then I ended up talking myself into loving it:

I think the bottom is a little weird — the beading is amazing, so the ruffles feel superfluous, and also kind of make the dress look hairy, which is not GENERALLY the way you want your dress to look, unless you’re going to a birthday party for Chewbacca — but on this whole I think this is, as Victoria Beckham would say, if we were friends, which we are in my head, MAJOR.


Well Played, Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman is one of those celebrities that you didn’t really realize you missed until she showed up somewhere (in this case, Cannes) looking AWESOME and then you were all, “oh, RIGHT. She can turn it on when she has to. I wish she’d make a good movie again.” It’s been a while, Ums — can I call you Ums? Seriously. Kill Bill, Vol 2 was 2004 — that’s the year we STARTED this blog.

Damn, now I feel old. Onto the slideshow.


The Fug Team

Because when you are in the midst of the world’s most long-expected break-up, what ELSE do you feel like doing other than moping at home, watching a Pretty Little Liars marathon? Listen, Biel, I know that when you’ve been on the sofa in sweats for eight hours and your bleary eyes finally focus on the TV screen and you see a pretty young thing wearing a giant feather in her ear as a prelude to running off and making out with her dreamy but age-inappropriate English teacher, it seems like maybe A FEATHER might solve all your problems, too. But what in fact it actually does is prompt several GFY readers to email us and say, “Dude, have you seen Jessica Biel? She’s decided she’s Aria from Pretty Little Liars! NICE TRY.”

On the other hand, though, if we’re talking about Your Feather, then we’re not talking about Your Break-Up and perhaps that is mission accomplished, eh? Maybe you’re wilier than I thought, Biel. GAME ON.

Oscars Fab or Bored Carpet: Hilary Swank

So, I feel like this is OSTENSIBLY very PRETTY:

I mean, it is. It is pretty. Of course it is. But it also feels, to me, like it’s been done a hundred times before, like it’s the dress version of a teen girl on a nighttime soap falling in love with her teacher (hello, Pretty Little Liars [although I deeply love you], Make It or Break It [ditto], Life Unexpected [said plot twist is what made me quit you], Big Love [which is unwatchable this season but I'm sticking it out to the last even though every episode makes me want to punch Bill in the face and then go on a killing spree] and Gossip Girl [which at least did us the honor of sending the dude to jail for sleeping with Serena before he actually did it]). Like: I get why it works and I see why you’re doing it, but haven’t you got something BETTER for me?

What do you think?


Oscar Party Fug Carpet: Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts led me on, see.

Naomi Watts

Yeah okay, the feathers look a little mangy, like she’s an exotic bird that’s just finishing puberty. But I thought, “Well, if that’s the worst she’s got for me, I can take it.”

But it isn’t


Oscars Weekend (And Beyond) Sharon Stone Carpet: Sharon Stone

“Hello, everyone. Yes, it’s me, Sharon, just popping by the Oscars red carpet on my way to Elton John’s viewing party — at which we will be watching, on TV, the event outside of which I am currently standing. Is that weird? Yes. Does it smell like I’m doing a drive-by just to get my picture taken as much as possible? Yes. Do we wonder why I was invited to this but not to the actual ceremony? Yes. ┬áDo we think I am telling people that I was invited but chose not to go inside because I am Sharon f’ing Stone, and I don’t sit around in rooms with people who aren’t giving me statuettes? OF COURSE. Do we think security asked for my name and I ID’d myself Basic Instinct style? Yes, because that is my driver’s license photo. That’s right, officer. Pull me over and let’s play Find the Infraction. Kiss kiss.”
