Why is this happening?

Is it because I stopped watching Glee?

SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Amber Riley


This one makes me so sad.

Amber Riley is SO much cuter than this, and she looked great at the Golden Globes – in fact, she looks great USUALLY. Remember this? So can we all just look away from her giant boob bow — better, I suppose, on her boobs than her butt, a la bridesmaids of yore all over the world — and pretend this never, ever happened? Thanks. I feel better now.

SAG Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Lea Michele


How do we feel about this, Fug Nation? I’ll tell you my thoughts, because I’m pushy like that: Great hair, but totally forgettable gown, except for the slit that goes up so high it’s practically barging in on the peace summit between her pubic bone and her hip. Maybe that’s why she spent the whole night wrangling that slit like the rent was due. Child, we see it. We can’t NOT see it. For the love of God, don’t SWISH IT, because I really, really don’t want a reason to finish the dirty limerick that is starting to form in my head.

Golden Globes Fug Carpet: Lea Michele


On first sight, I correctly predicted this would turn out to be Marchesa. Once the go-to designer for diaphanous, girly gowns with precise and pretty detail, it’s now synonymous with Crack Explosion/Tacky Mermaid.

I also said it looks like a partridge-hunting accident. And, with regrets to the poor pear tree that once housed the accursed bird, I stand by that. Oh, Lea. You should NEVER go out dressed as Kate Middleton’s acid flashback of the first time she had to shoot fowl with the Queen. It looks like you’re wearing a bra made of death.

People’s Choice Awards Mostly Well Played: Lea Michele


What is going on with me lately? This seems like something I would be crabby about, right? It’s costumey, it’s a drizzle of tassles that have been cruelly denied their future of hanging from some graduate’s rearview mirror for five years too long, there is a crotch smile — overall, the kind of thing that’s so Marchesa, they could probably produce it while napping. And yet somehow I find myself liking it. It’s intricate in a way Marchesa actually did very well before Georgina started wrapping Leighton Meester in pornographic tulle and stuffing Boobs Legsly into sparkles and toilet paper. It’s sexy, with the tease of flesh underneath (it’s actually a liner, or most of it is, I think) but no risk of exposure. And it works on Lea — she shines in it.

The purple lipstick, well, not so much. Actually, let’s dive in and discuss it all, because why stop at 100 words when you can use a thousand?

Fug and Fab the Gleeks


What I’m learning from doing this over the years: The networks should really send its invitees a sample swatch of the step-and-repeat. Getting dressed is hard enough without showing up and finding out that the backdrop makes you look like a 1970s living room set that they gave away on daytime Wheel of Fortune.

Fug or Fab the Cover: Dianna Agron


I suppose I can’t quibble too much with how unlike herself Dianna looks, since the cover basically says this issue is an homage to the sixties.

It is still sort of strange to pick a cover subject and then render them unrecognizable to anyone taking a passing glance at the newsstand, but at least ’60s-Dianna looks like Twiggy, which would probably work to make most people do a double-take and then be like, “Oh, it’s the girl from Glee,” and then somehow during that person’s 20-minute internal monologue about whether any of the changes they make to Glee each season ever actually improve it, that person may find that he or she has — in a fugue state — purchased the issue (or shoplifted it, I suppose, but we don’t condone thievery unless it’s of our hearts, ahem, Pacey). The outfit too seems like an appropriately 2011 spin on the ’60s — which is to say, the ’60s by way of the ’80s and the Ice Capades. And finally, I have to give props to Nylon for “Makeup to wake up in,” because even though none of us are supposed to go to bed with full face on, I think we can all admit we’ve done that more than thrice, and possibly always. So at least they’re catering to what a girl really needs, which is almost always “six glasses of water and a coma,” rather than “ten minutes in front of the bathroom mirror taking a blurry swipe at her makeup with some Ponds.”

So in sum: I didn’t think I liked this at first, but now I’m wondering if it’s actually thematically effective. As a random cover? Crazy. As the cover of their I Love The ’60s issue? Maybe actually kind of okay.

And the only thing that could logically follow that kind of a milquetoast endorsement is a poll.
