Fug Nation’s Worst-Dressed: Oscars 2016

So much “oy” on one night.

Polls are after the jump, so the homepage doesn’t get all insane:

Fug Nation’s Best Dressed: Oscars 2016

Okay: Two separate polls, one for the telecast and for the post-parties — as ever, that’s because what you choose to wear to the thing that’s actually broadcast worldwide is a bigger deal than what you wear to a party that might MAYBE get your picture in a magazine — but they’re all in the same slideshow, with a marker in between, just to save time and space. We tried to take into account times when you WILDLY disagreed with our opinion (hence no Charlize), but for the most part, we went with our gut about who we thought had the best chance of winning. The polls are after the jump, just because they’re long. VOTE LIKE MAD. Read More


Oscars Fugs and Fabs: The Lightbox Purge

In other words, here’s EVERYONE ELSE.


Oscars Well Played, Kate Beckinsale in Romona Keveza

I feel like I always open Kate Beckinsale posts with something along the lines of, “so this isn’t REVOLUTIONARY or anything,” and once again, this is not particularly revolutionary:

But it IS really elegant and pretty on her. Isn’t that enough?

Oscars Well Played Weekend, Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei looked — as you will soon see — quite groovy all weekend. This is also the post where I mention that I worked with her once, a million years ago, and she had the best skin of anyone I’ve ever seen in person. Tell us your skin care routine, Tomei!

Oscars Fug Carpet: Freida Pinto in Versace

Versace had a decent run at the Oscars this season.

Freida Pinto

And so of COURSE we were due for a fall. That cut is a bastard hybrid of an Herve Leger bandage frock, 1980s midsections, and a bridesmaid’s dress, and not even Freida Pinto’s exemplary genetics can change my mind.

Oscar Weekend Fugs and Fabs: Jessica Biel

Her eatery Au Fudge — described at one point as “a Soho House for kids,” making me scratch my head to the point of damage – recently opened and has one Yelp review, and it’s not positive. So it’s probably for the best that she’s dipping a toe back in career-infested waters, so to speak.
