Fugs and Fabs: Mad Men at the Paley Center


Well, looks like she went from Betty Draper to Betty Drapery. ZING. Try the meatloaf.

Fugs and Fabs: Other People at the Mad Men Premiere


Jon must love the amount his Hamm is in the news. Seriously. Is there a bigger compliment than MULTIPLE stories about how his beanstalk is TOO imposing?

The phrase “shake your tailfeather” is JUST AN EXPRESSION. HALT YOUR ACQUISITION OF TAILFEATHERS.

AFI Awards Fug Carpet: Christina Hendricks


The weekend of the Golden Globes, about a hundred other things happened. What is WRONG with this town? MOST OF THESE PEOPLE LIVE HERE. YOU CAN GET THEM BACK ANYTIME. EVEN IF THEY DON’T, THEY WILL COME. CELEBRITIES LOVE INVITATIONS TO THINGS.

Ahem. Christina Hendricks, however, was a no-show at the Globes (maybe she wasn’t invited? Or she was working? Or she had the flu? But none of the lady Mad Men were there), so you’d think she would turn the AFI Awards into her big showstopper, right?

Right. By which I mean, SO WRONG.

I suppose it IS a stopper, but only in the sense that actually it’s a non-starter. The length is so frumpy on her; if we cut it off at the knee then maybe we could have a discussion, but right now she just looks wallpapered. And the hair… what is going on with her hair? Apparently it’s an open secret that she wears pieces or toppers all the time. I wish this were her normal hair. Because the idea that she BOUGHT whatever this is and then consciously plopped it onto her head… Powering through what God and maybe a bad hairdresser gave you is one thing, but if the choice was this or something else, here is my question: What on Earth was the something else? Would it explode my brain?

Emmy Awards Well Played: Jessica Pare


Again, I feel like Jessica Pare takes a lot of adjunct heat for the fact that Mad Men spent so much time on her character, as if she has naked pictures of Matt Weiner and is blackmailing him for screen time. (Although if she does, it apparently worked.) (But, ack, Kids Today, DON’T DO THAT. Don’t try that at home. No naked blackmail.) (Only Alexis Carrington Colby should attempt such shenanigans.) (Damn, what that could have done with a smartphone…)

Ahem.

This is a beautiful look for her — graceful, Old Hollywood glam. She’s not trying to steal thunder; she’s just casually creating her own. Also, I want that ring in my life. I mean, the girl gets to make out with Don Draper for a living. Does she have to have EVERYTHING?
