Oscars Fug/Fab Face-Off: Sally Field vs Hilary Swank


It seems… at best remiss that Valentino dressed one of tonight’s Oscar nominees in something HUGELY similar to what it gave a 90210 alum. … Okay, fine, Hilary Swank is also a two-time Oscar winner, but we all know Former Steve Sanders Love Interest is what’s going on her tombstone.

Neither of them won an Oscar tonight, but they can win this (a... Fugscar?). Whose is better:

Fab or Fine: Amy Adams


Y’all know I have been less than enamored of Amy’s outfits lately. And in one case, I think maybe I tried too hard to like it because I was sick of that blah wah-waaaaah feeling. Tell me: Am I doing the same here? Or is this actually good?

The color is a nice rich red, and she doesn’t look stumpy, and the fit seems precise. But I freely admit I might just be hypnotized by her cascade of titian tresses, which is basically its own Pantene ad. The longer I look at her face, the more I wonder if she needed to stop doing the exact same makeup she does every other day for every other type of event, and branch into a red that plays with the dress… but then again, I am someone who doesn’t know HOW to do any makeup other than mascara and whatever lip gloss I just found in my purse, so what do I know?

What do YOU know?

It’s a Good Fug/Hilariously Played, Karolina Kurkova


Martha, Martha, MARTHA.

If, and only if, this ballet you’re seeing is about the time Dorothy Zbornak took a South Beach spin class taught by Charo, then I accept you wearing gold lame dance pants. AND if this ballet you’re seeing is about the time Dorothy Zbornak took a South Beach spin class taught by Charo, and you didn’t send me tickets, I will NEVER do any scrapbooking ever again and what’s more A CRAFTING TABLE WILL NEVER ENTER THIS HOUSE. OH YES, YOU HEARD ME.

Just in case you were wondering whether the dress code for this event was Jazzerthighs:

Fab It Up: Maria Sharapova


“Unfug” is not exactly the right word here, because I actually don’t think this is fugly. But “Lessfug” isn’t as catchy. So I went with how to make this even better.

I  love the idea of the red leather and the way it’s cut, but for a summer party in honor of Hamptons magazine, doesn’t this seem a little… constricting? And maybe sweaty? It’s the neckline that’s nibbling at me more than the sleeves — somehow it’s making her seem boxy, and so very covered up when it’s so very August. Ergo, while I quite like this and might even have loved it in another circumstance, I am wondering if she’d look even cuter if the neckline were gentler, or it were short-sleeved/sleeveless. Sure, it’s Valentino, but can’t she call them up and make outrageous demands? Isn’t that the fun of being a celebrity?

I would...

Unfug or Fab: Tika Sumpter


Okay, Tika, let me have it.

You gave us a golden panty-sheath the other day at another Sparkle event, but this appears to be drama of a more opaque variety. I’m curious. Let’s turn you around — you’re like a matador baiting the bull up there, and I don’t want to find myself suddenly snorting and scraping at dirt.
