Fugs and Fabs: This Week In Miley


Since her Cosmo cover caused such a stir among her fans — in a good way; they are obsessed with it, and in fact, at the launch party, we saw a long line of people who seemed decidedly too old to be waiting for her to autograph their issue — Miley has had a pretty good PR week. Let’s see how she clothed it.

I wish Josh Duhamel would give me Save Haven from this jumpsuit, you guys.

I wonder if our girl here was tired of getting the lesser Dior gowns, because she switched to Stella McCartney for the Santa Barbara film fest. The problem with that is, Stella McCartney’s clothes are almost always going to create more problems than they solve.

I am TRYING not to reject this purely on jumpsuit grounds. And her waist does look perfect and wee. But I really hate how stumpifying, grandmotherly, and even thickening those tapered, aggressively pressed satin pants are. The top appears to be sagging, as if she’s being slowly unwrapped by an invisible jerk. Add to that the messy eye makeup, the fact that those shoes are chafing the hell out of her feet, and the way her hair looks like she forgot she even had any at all, I’m wondering if that walking pneumonia still hasn’t released her from its wicked claws. Or, she’s seen the Dior she’s getting for the Oscars and wants to lower the bar so she’ll be assured of clearing it. In that case, I like her odds.

Fug or Fab: Stella McCartney


When I first saw this, yesterday, I suuuuuuuuuuper hated it. But it kind of grew on me — like a fungus — overnight. I blame the power of lamé (The Power of Lamé is going to be the name of my autobiography. I just decided).

What do you think?

Unfug or Fine: Maggie Gyllenhaal, With An Assist From Hot Viola Davis


So, yeah, I do realize this is a jumpsuit, and yet I am not approaching it with abject disapproval. I KNOW. I’m sure the lightheadedness of Abfest 2012 still has me in its clutches.

But seriously, that doesn’t look awful on her. At least, I don’t think so — okay, so part of it is sitting weirdly on her chest, like it’s sagging or needed to be pinned/pressed/taped, but it’s such a small thing. Otherwise, from this angle, I am far less enraged by the jumpsuit itself than I expected. My bigger question is with the styling, specifically the choice of jacket:

I have no idea what this pattern is…

… but if I narrow my eyes and look in very specific spots, it looks like an ode to hamburgers. And I hope it IS, because look, if you’re going to stick yourself in a weirdly crotched jumpsuit**, making it an ode to the mighty meat sandwich is basically the only silver lining. Maybe the quasi-hat-head she’s sporting is because a minute ago she had on a giant sesame-seed bun sombrero. Let’s all hope.

**People with better eyes than mine say it’s a jacket and matching pants. The jury may be hung as to whether that makes it better or worse; we may be en route to a mistrial.
