Fug File: pink

Fug or Fab: Anne Hathaway


So, I really, really was not sold on Anne’s blonde hair at the Met Ball. I will be the first to say that I ALSO didn’t think her features were optimized with the short hair, and then she had that awesome phase where she grew it out super stylishly and I fell in love with it and think she should keep it that way forever. So maybe I will come around on the blonde, too.

Having said THAT, I am not there yet — I think it’s way too brassy for her features, and I don’t like the phase that the short style is in right now (I felt that way when it was still brown, too), so that might be affecting my feelings too. Again, I fully realize I may eat those words in like two weeks when she does something fabulous to it and suddenly I want her to be a gilded lily forever, but fortunately, I enjoy eating, so that’s fine.

As for the dress, I don’t mind the idea of the shape and volume here, but I think in execution it’s making her look weirdly droopy. So basically, the last two times she’s worn baby pink, it’s caused boobular scrutiny that she’d probably rather have avoided. Please let’s not go for the charm with a third try.

Is it as bad as all that?

Fug or Fine: Elizabeth Hurley


I mean, it’s not like this is terrifyingly tasteless or anything, in a giant-safety-pin-parade kind of way. And I understand that it’s pink because they are at a pink-themed party.

But it’s so Glinda the Good Witch meets Little Mermaid. At a beauty pageant. I’m exhausted just looking at it.

Am I crazy?

Oscars Well Played: Danai Gurira


I love this on her. And I’m not just saying that because she has a katana and knows how to use it.

Golden Globes Fugs and Fabs: Pinks


Don’t you love the part of the week where I say, “Damn, I don’t think I can drum up a full post about Felicity Jones, or Georgia King, or Nikki Reed, so THANK GOD they’re all wearing pink”? Me too.

Critics’ Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Leslie Mann


Usually, I really like Leslie Mann’s dresses that have an unusual twist.

But this is like the throw-pillow version of what Lea Michele just wore to the People’s Choice Awards, and worse, it looks absurd on Leslie — I mean, on Elle Fanning, I think we’d have something to discuss, but as beautiful as Ms. Mann is… Your movie was called This Is 40, not This Is 14.

Critics’ Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Eva Longoria


As we have learned from almost a decade of Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria has an awesome body. Yet you’d never know it in this.

But worse, this dress is somewhat startling to me. That decoration there… you guys may think this is insane, but to me it’s faintly anatomical. It’s evocative of… well, a ladyplace. It’s high fashion labial folds. It’s a sartorial pap smear. She is a growling, crazy-eyed walking vagina right now, and that is really not a sentence I ever expected to type except maybe as part of a review of some new Guillermo Del Toro movie called Pan’s Labiarinth.
