Fug or Fab: Carey Mulligan

I love this picture:


Can you blame her? Who doesn’t love Colin Firth?


Well Played, Michelle Williams/Vaguely Hef-ly Played, Ryan Gosling

Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling

MICHELLE: Hey, Ryan.

RYAN: Michelle. Ma belle.

MICHELLE: Right, yes. The Beatles.

RYAN: I am crazy for you.

MICHELLE: Madonna. Can I play? How about, ‘Don’t stand so close to me.’

RYAN: The Police! Also, sorry. I’m just so drawn to your creamy white torso. I want to spread it on toast and take it for breakfast in bed.

MICHELLE: … R. Kelly?

RYAN: No, Ryan Gosling.

MICHELLE: Really? Since when are you so porny?

RYAN: I DON’T KNOW. I think it’s the scarf. It has me feeling so randy. Like I could drink a shot of rum out of your clavicle. And then leap into your dress, and into your secret garden…


RYAN: No, Bruce Springsteen. Well, sort of.

MICHELLE: Man, this is getting scary. I’m gonna shoot somebody.

RYAN: What?!?

MICHELLE: Now THAT was R. Kelly.

RYAN: Cunning. But seriously, I do like that dress. It’s like a painting. A painting of serenity. I can paint, you know. With my fingers. I could turn your fair epidermis into a canvas, that skin like porcelain, one pair of candy lips and your bubblegum tongue…

MICHELLE: John Mayer. Wow, I can’t believe you are quoting Man-Whore at me. Dealbreaker!

RYAN: You thought I was quoting R. Kelly before, but JOHN MAYER is your dealbreaker?

MICHELLE: A girl has to have standards. Does this stuff really work on Blake Lively?

RYAN: I never kiss and tell. But, yes.

MICHELLE: Well, congrats to you and your scarf. I hope you’re all very happy. Laughter is calling for you. Three’s company, too.

RYAN: That one is… wait for it, I know this one…

MICHELLE: It’s Three’s Company.

RYAN: Damn! You’ve bested me in this round, Williams. Well played indeed.


Fugabel Lucas

Hey, look, you guys!

For Thanksgiving, Isabel Lucas is in charge of bringing back the 80s!


Well Played, Natalie Portman/Fug or Fab: Natalie Portman

Since the poster for her new movie Black Swan is basically a close-up of her made up to be the love child of Darth Maul and Cruella de Vil, I’m not surprised Natalie Portman went in this direction at an event for it:

She’s so clean and youthful and ladylike, as if she’s afraid you’re not going to nominate her for an Oscar unless you look at her and then say, “Damn, that spring-fresh breeze was the same person who carried this erotic ballet thriller? WHAT UP, BEST ACTRESS!” And yet her shoes are statuette-colored. Savvy, Portman. Savvy. Okay, maybe she just wore something she liked with some heels she’d just acquired, but I like my explanation better, mostly because I got to use the phrase “erotic ballet thriller.” 
Here’s the more grown-up look she sported at a MOMA gala:

Million Dollar Fugly

From the neck up, I think Hilary Swank looks quite lovely:

Fresh, low-key makeup, simple hair, potentially interesting dress with intriguing textural elements….

Fug or Fab: Lauren Conrad

I have come to a certain level of grudging fondness for Lauren Conrad:

In part, this is because it seems quite clear that she is NOT a total asshat. I am impressed with her for realizing that she had to escape The Hills, and for finding herself a variety of other ways to make money — her books, her fashion line, her endorsements, etc — unlike certain other douchewads who are currently living with Spencer’s parents and considering bankruptcy because they ran through ten million dollars buying things like a terribly produced dance album and a new face. It’s unfortunate that this is the yardstick by which we are measuring these things, but there you go. However, I am undecided about this frock. It’s completely lovely, I think — but it feels a bit STAID, perhaps?

I might not be totally feeling it just because I really loved what she wore to film her latest reality show earlier in the week:
