Fug File: Fug Madness 2012

Fug Madness 2012, Sweet Sixteen: Cher Bracket, Part I


(12) CHLOE SEVIGNY vs. (16) KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN

This is a WEIRD match-up. Chloe, for all her wacktacular wardrobe choices, is really talented. She was spectacularly good on Big Love, and I hope she works for the rest of her life. Kourtney, on the other hand: THE OPPOSITE OF THAT.

Whose fug reigns supreme?

  • Kourtney Kardashian (62%, 5,138 Votes)
  • Chloe Sevigny (38%, 3,143 Votes)

Fug Madness, Round Two: Madonna Bracket, part II


(1) NICKI MINAJ vs. (9) JAIME KING

I don’t really think this is fugly. I actually think it’s really sort of charming. I just couldn’t resist sharing:

There’s a reason she was a model. I feel like this could be the cover of a charming and quirky chick lit book about a relatable Manic Pixie Dream Girl who has one crazy summer in the Hamptons that ends with her running away to London with a boy she thinks is a penniless guitar player but who actually turns out to be the Duke of Flargingwad.

But enough about that. Let’s talk about OUTFITS:

(2) RIHANNA vs. (10) JESSICA WHITE 

We might as well lead with this. There’s no point making you wait. Let’s rip off the Band-Aid and recover together.

This is one of the most hideous things I have ever seen in my life, and yes, that life includes almost eight years of writing a Web site that focuses almost entirely on hideous things. And okay, we could say, “Perhaps Ms. White was just suffering from momentary dementia.” But then how do you explain this? Which she wore on her birthday? And is the granny panty frock version of this Polygamist Mechanic outfit?

Girlfriend is not shy about the sheers, for sure:

(1) JENNIFER LOPEZ vs. (8) ALEXA CHUNG

Allow me to just say I don’t even plan to try to approximate Heather’s rendition of J.Lo. So I will say only this:

HOLA LOVERS!

(3) VANESSA HUDGENS vs. (11) TYRA BANKS

In case you missed the memo, Tyra went to business school. It’s why she showed up to ring the Stock Exchange bell in a romper (well, it explains the former, anyway, if not the latter), and it’s why she scurried around town wearing a lot of neckties this past year.

Neckties, and suspenders. I will say this for Tyra: She is always gung-ho for a theme. Not only did she WEAR the fictional “Smize” from her debut novel while promoting said novel – along with, yes, a necktie – but she also wore a jumpsuit that basically had Smizebrows. Although lest you think that Modelland and Harvard totally erased her jumpsuitian proclivities, she did also don another jumpsuit that looks like the flavors in a weird promotional box of Popsicles that just went on clearance because nobody wants to know what turquoise tastes like (my theory: salt and sand).

But beyond that, she was a dog with a bone again while on the Modelland promotional circuit:

(2) JESSIE J v. (7) MIA WASIKOWSKA

In the last hour or so I spent yanking photos for this post, I think I fell in love with Jessie J. AND SO MIGHT YOU.

Mia, although surely a lovely person, doesn’t really dress to make anyone fall for her in any manner. She dresses to blend into the background. Which is fine, but maybe a weird tack to take when you’re an actress:

I don’t hate this — it’s pretty and it fits her, but it’s kind of edging toward Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

On the other hand:

And:
