Fug File: Glee

Emmy Awards Well Played Carpet: Naya Rivera


I keep forgetting Naya Rivera was at the Emmys. Which is weird, because now that I’ve sat down and looked at this photo, this dress might be one of my favorites.

I mean, yeah, you’d see more of the detail if it weren’t black, but I think the bodice is great. In the past, our girl Santana has been very Ladyboobs McSideboob, with a bonus Cha Cha DiGregorio sighting at last year’s Emmys. This feels kind of like a maturation of sorts, then — like she knows she can be seen without screaming at you or figuratively keying the metaphorical car of your brain, or whatever. It’s good, is what I’m saying.

Turns out there was another color as ubiquitous as red. Who knew?

Emmy Awards Fug Carpet: Jenna Ushkowitz


I don’t hate this, exactly; I’m more confused by it.

Is it a dress,  or did she just belt an extremely expensive diaper changing pad to her chest?

Emmy Awards Fug Carpet: Vanessa Lengies


This was a big one for Vanessa here — she of Stick It — who is joining the cast of Glee this fall as a character named Sugar Motta. I am trying to reserve judgment on that one, which you can imagine is very challenging for me, as I’m a crabby old crone with an active pointer finger and no fear of jamming it onto my laptop keys in a scathing order. Mostly, I hope it just turns out to be kind of a dumb name, but a perfectly good character, since that show needs a little more awesome and a little less mediocre.

I also hope having a regular TV role doesn’t interfere with Vanessa’s ability to get back to the Starship Enterprise and have her neck brace calibrated.

Emmy Awards Fug or Fab: Dianna Agron


Before I show you what Dianna Agron wore to the Emmys, let’s take a look at her from last time we saw her.

There is hot messitude at work. It looks like she went surfing, then burned her hair in the toaster oven. So I’m pleased to say that this part, at least, improved on Sunday:

Emmy Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Lea Michele


It cracks me up that somebody scared poor little Sarah Hyland into apologizing for something totally innocent. The backstory: She apparently went on some show — I think E’s Fashion Police? — and made cheerful, imitative fun of the way Lea Michele mugs for the camera on the red carpet. And then on the Emmy show, she basically had to lament to the world her blackened, crusted soul for doing something so cruel to one so innocent, as if an army of Gleeks had kidnapped her mother with only this as its ransom demand. Which would be fine if Hyland had said, “Lea Michele makes beer out of kittens,” but she doesn’t. She just riffed on something Lea does anyway, and at this point, which Lea herself probably parodies to some degree (or so I would hope). The moral of this story is that I feel bad for Sarah Hyland, I still find Lea Michele hilarious, and I’m probably going to get a box of severed typing fingers in the mail in a few days.

So let’s talk about Lea’s dress instead. I have thoughts. They are not all positive. Dive in with me to this pool of sin.

What are YOUR thoughts?
