Fug File: Oscars

Vanity Fair Oscar Party Unfug or Fab: Selena Gomez in Emilio Pucci


New couple alert:

This will obviously upset Justin Bieber’s apple cart, as he Instagrammed Internet photos of Selena in this dress along with schmoopy sentiments about what a goddess she is, because clearly he thinks they would still be a good idea even though the Greek chorus that is THE ENTIRE PLANET is screaming, “HOLSTER IT, TWERP.”

Let’s look at Selena’s gown without the accessory of one Mr. Bill Murray:

Oscars Feh Carpet: Viola Davis in Escada


This is a great color, but this is doing her no favors:

I feel like she kind of phoned this in, and I don’t think I’m the only one. On Oscar night, I noticed on Twitter that Escada was retweeting all kinds of things — mostly, you know, “Viola Davis looks major in Escada!” But they also retweeted someone who’d posted a photo of this frock with the succinct review, “EH.” I’m SURE it was an oversight, but I love the idea that even Escada was like, “We’ve all done better, right? Right.”

Elton John Oscar Party WTF: Analeigh Tipton


Let’s not mince words: I call bullshit on this.

There is NO WAY anyone associated with this malevolent piece of sewing intended for it to be taken seriously, right? There is NO WAY anyone associated with acquiring this inept cocktail intended for the consumption of it to be taken seriously, right? There is NO WAY Analeigh put her feet into that glorified salon smock of a skirt and that window with arms, and said, “Nothing has ever felt so good,” right? Full marks for actually wearing the bra — is this whole thing in aid of a Playtex endorsement? — but I refuse to believe this seemingly very nice person, with a great bob and nice makeup, who was good on America’s Next Top Model and better in Crazy, Stupid, Love, is doing anything except prank-calling herself here. HANG UP THE PHONE.

Vanity Fair Oscar Parties Fugs and Fabs: Purples


Personally, I think more people need to wear purple more often. It’s almost always at least striking, even if it doesn’t always reach the heights of Jessica Chastain in Givenchy at Cannes.

Elton John Oscar Party Well Played: Kim and Khloe Kardashian


How can it be that Kim Kardshian may have the best lipstick game in town?

That is a gorgeous shade, perfect with her hair, and meticulously amazing with that Celia Kritharioti dress — which itself is lovely on her. She tried going glam last year and it ended up too costumey, so I think it’s stellar that she picked something simple and let her cleavage do the talking — just enough to keep a conversation but not so much that it feels like it’s wedged against a screen door. A hearty well done to you, Kimberly. May Kanye keep Givenchy’s talons off you for a while now.

Her sister Khloe also went red, which normally I would advise against on a night when one’s more famous sister is doing it too. But Khloe put her own spin on it:

Oscars Fugs or Fabs: The Metallics


I do think that a lot of these women sometimes think, “hmm, I’m going to the Oscars. Maybe I’ll DRESS LIKE ONE!”
