Fug File: green

Emmy Awards Fugs and Fabs: Greens and Blues


I always come away from these things thinking, “Gah, nobody wore color,” and this year I think that’s because many of the female winners — Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Anna Gunn, Claire Danes, Merritt Wever — did not. So I’m always pleasantly surprised to be able to compile the occasional slideshow that reminds us all that Mr. G. Biv is alive and well, even if he’s being abused a little bit.

Fug or Fab: Kate Middleton


This is very retro — both hair, and dress — and I can’t decide if it works or not. What do you think?

Fug or Fab: Kristen Wiig


Hallelujah. Somebody got run over by the color wheel.

I’m less decided on the Dijonnaise flats* (which I just realized sounds like either a band, or a really pretentious vacation destination — “Oh, we’re going to our cabin in the Dijonnaise Flats”), but I think the impact hue is fabulous on her. Can we sidebar a moment about centered slits, though?This is the second one present at this party. Is that going to happen again? Because I remember a certain denim skirt I bought about ten years ago and every time I sat down in it, that sucker opened up like flaps on a tent. It lasted about a month in my closet before I gave myself a stern talking-to and then filed for divorce.

*Also, I totally know those aren’t flats. What is wrong with me? Clearly a wire crossed and then maybe started a small electrical brain fire. Maybe I was too busy checking real-estate prices on The Dijonnaise Flats to pay attention to myself.

Unfug It Up: Rachel McAdams


It may be the easiest question ever, short of, “Cake or death?”

I swear, this woman loves a Sleeve. Capital letter fully intended.

And I expected to recoil at these mossy appendages,  but… I don’t know, I am digging the prim poof next to the plunging neckline, the complementary greens, and her makeup (although I can’t tell about the shoes — they look a little Dancing With The Stars to me). Is she onto something here, or is the whole redhead-in-green thing giving me beer goggles?

Well?

Oscars Fug Carpet: Viola Davis


I love you Viola, but I don’t know if this worked.

THE PROS: The hair is great! The color of this dress is great! And it looks much better in photos that it did on the red carpet.

THE CONS: It goes crazy at the bottom,  like it’s a remnant from a slasher movie about a killer with really aggressive tastes in evening gowns. Like if Heather and I went psychotic. “I hate this….AND HERE’S WHAT I’M GOING TO DO WITH IT.”

THE GOOD NEWS: You didn’t win wearing something that was, ultimately, a bit mediocre . But you’ll win eventually. It’s going to happen. And next time, you can skip the Vera Wang.
