Fug File: Naeem Khan

High Fugshion: New York Bridal Week: Naeem Khan and Carolina Herrera


MORE GOWNS. Just let the glory of them wash over you. Bonus points to Naeem Khan for going Full Drama with the veils. Now that I’m old, I am really into the Old School Long-Ass Crazy Dramatic veil, the kind of veil you wear to your arranged marriage with the Prince of Catatonia, where his first glimpse of your face is when your veil is removed at the end of the ceremony and he is stunned by your beauty! Too bad for him that you’re only marrying him to settle a decades-long score with the Catatonic people and you’re actually in love with your handsome dancing instructor, Jacques. You’re all planning that exact wedding right now, aren’t you? Because I was led to believe that you were.

Start your Pinterests, it’s Fall Bridal Week — aka the Fashion Week Where Everyone Shows Their Bridal Lines, and it’s hard not to ooh and ahh a little, no matter how hard you try.

Fugs and Fabs: Opening Night at the Metropolitan Opera


And now we have to play catch-up on everything that happened while we were wringing out our Emmy lightboxes. First up is this gala, which was FULL of dramatic gowns. When it’s time to go big, Diane Kruger rarely disappoints.

Emmy Awards Well Played: Laura Dern


I’m proud of myself, because I ALMOST got this right: When Monique Lhuillier sent this very similar gown down the runway, Laura Dern was one of my picks for it.¬†Instead,¬†she wore this gorgeous Naeem Khan, of which I said basically that once it was lined there would be happiness in the land.

I think THAT part, I nailed. As did she. This is sexy and gorgeous and dignified and romantic, and I think it found a very welcoming home. And if she’s mean to it, I would like to offer it shelter. I would bravely, generously, turn my closet into a halfway house for discarded red-carpet fashion. I am the real hero.

Emmy Awards Fug Carpet: Connie Britton


I can’t. I’m sorry. I know we love her hair, and her Tami-ness, but she looks like a sofa.

A very ELEGANT sofa, sure — an ornate fainting couch, mayhap, onto which countless royal behinds have swooned upon learning of juicy family trysts with commoners and/or Vegas testicular shenanigans — but nonetheless something to put your bum ON, not in. And, I’m sorry. I tried “on which to put your bum, not in which to put it,” but it was too clunky, so I used the damn preposition to end the sentence with. Zing. This dress has beaten into submission my inner grammarian, which is now in need of its own fainting couch. Maybe Connie can bring this over when she’s finished.
