Fug Vogue Party: Maskapalooza Omnibus

The Roitfelds were a naked surprise at the French Vogue party, but there were loads of other amusing outfits at the masquerade, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t walk you down Wackitude Lane for a while. We can hold hands and talk about the physical impossibilities of the final dance performance in Center Stage, and why everybody is doing stories on TV about teenagers and their teachers having potent sexual chemistry, and why nobody ever brings up during said stories that the teachers could be SENT TO JAIL. You know, stuff like that. 

And then we’d pause to look at the real estate along Wackitude Lane. Like model Lily Donaldson here:

See, Little Red Riding Hood has been living alone in the woods with just grandma for a long, long time. So she’s not entirely upset that the big bad wolf is coming to town. Maybe he’s just a really hairy man, and he might sup on some sins of the flesh. Or he’ll eat her grandmother and she can finally blow that joint and head to the city, where there is many a streetcorner eager to be decorated by a hot young thing in red satin. Either way, she’s pretty sure it’ll end happy.
However, as usual, Miss Tyra stole the show for me.

The Brownfug Awards: Brynne Gordon-Edelsten RETURNS

YAY! My favorite Crazy American-Turned-Aussie, Brynne Gordon-Edelsten, is BACK!

And I would say that this qualifies as also being BETTER THAN EVER. You’ll note that her ensemble for the 2010 Brownlow Awards looks very, very similar to what she wore last year, but with one VERY IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE:

Emmy Awards Fug or Fab: Carrie Preston

I really love this picture:

Carrie “Arlene” Preston and Michael “Ben” Emerson are sincerely so cute. All of the shots of them together looked sort of like this one: She’s smiling happily, and he just looks like getting to hang out with his wife at the Emmys is THE BEST THING EVER. I guess it would be better than his usual day on Lost, which generally tended to involve mysterious bloodshed — even if said bloodshed was often in the course of his character being fascinating. Anyway, I love them. All of his interviews for the past five years have been like, “When I’m not in Hawaii playing Ben, I get to go be Carrie’s assistant!” It’s just so cute. Like Kyra and Kevin earlier today, if they were to break up, I would be legit disappointed.

But let’s get a closer look at Carrie, shall we?

Creative Emmy Awards Secretly Awesome Carpet: Alan Cumming

Sometimes, you have to just give someone thumbs up for COMMITTING TO A LOOK:

If you decide to wear a plaid suit to the (Creative Arts) Emmys, then WEAR A PLAID SUIT TO THE (Creative Arts) EMMYS, I say, and Alan Cumming is nothing if not goofily delightful in his. I so prefer this kind of thing to the “I’m Kind of Wearing a Tux But Not Really I Decided to Get CRAZY And Wear Something That’s Sort of Traditional Except in VELVET Don’t Judge Me Please Think I’m Special But Not TOO Special” that we so often see from the dudes who want to splash out but don’t want to splash out, you know, QUITE this far. Go big or go home, I always say, and ergo this pleases me. Also pleasing:
