Sponsored Post: The Best of the Wackiest “Pretty Little Liars” Looks


As Fug Nation knows, we are avid Pretty Little Liars watchers, in part because we love a good, soapy twist and turn — but also because that show can bring wardrobe drama like no other. We vividly remember the day Aria’s feather earring lit Twitter on fire, or the time she wore pants with two different legs, or her genuinely gorgeous masquerade dress. So with the new slate of episodes premiering tonight, we compiled a slideshow of our very favorite weird and wild and wonderfully WTH looks from the three seasons that came before. (The post itself may be sponsored, but the opinions and choices herein are solely our own — as always.) This COULD be alternately titled, “Things Aria Has Done To Herself,” but also includes clothes I never got a chance to write about from season three, like a certain outfit Hanna wore in a barn. Hint: IT’S OVERALLS. Mandi Line, you never, ever disappoint. See you tonight and beyond.

The summer season of “Pretty Little Liars” premieres tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central on ABC Family.

Sponsored Post: Well Played, Festive Sparkly Things


In honor of the holiday season — and the fact that we all have festive parties to go to in the upcoming weeks, and (okay, yes, especially) because I am really into all things shiny and glittery, like a child or a magpie — let’s take a look at all the most intriguing SHINY we’ve seen on celebs out and about over the past month or so.  I really want one of you to wear Whoopi Goldberg’s outfit to your office bash. Please. Please do it for me.

Well Played: Naomi Watts


I love it when Naomi Watts gets it right:

This feels right. And the more said about her clutch, the better. I want it. I want to cradle it next to me every night and wake up with my cheek pressed against it every morning. It is my soulmate.

Speaking of people whom I once suspected might be my soulmate:

Special VMAs Unfug It Up: Ke$ha


So close, right? Heather and I have been talking about this for the last ten minutes and we can’t quite figure out why it just seems slightly off-key:

Part of the problem might be that it’s hard to tell what is exactly happening with the front of it, thanks to her hair.   Another part of the problem might be that I’m not entirely sure this dress is the right cut for her body. Ke$ha is kind of straight up and down — as am I, so trust me, I feel her on this one (as well as on the wisdom of including James van der Beek in every music video ever made, because if I woke up tomorrow with the ability to sing, trust that I would immediately arrange for him to float into my video. On Dawson’s dock. Openly crying). I think she needs something to give her a little shape, is all.  Perhaps a belt? Although, if she has a belt, this thing is going to be way too short, so maybe she needs a belt AND a couple of inches of fabric.  Maybe she just needs another neckline? Maybe she needs to take up juggling flaming coconuts to distract us. In short: I DON’T KNOW. What do you think? How can we aut0-tune this dress so that she is…wait for it…Pitch Perfect?

*Yes, the post is sponsored, but I promise you that all the opinions are our own. As always.

Sponsored Post: Clothing Recoveries


Obviously we love a good fashion disaster, but if there is anything we love more, it might be this: redemption, specifically when somebody manages to leave an (in)famous mess behind and pull a complete clothing recovery. I mean, did you ever think Kate Hudson would live down this high-fashion rodeo look, much less grow up to win the red carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as convincingly as she did this year? Miracles can happen.

Andie MacDowell: A Sponsored Fugtrospective


In the upcoming ABC Family original series Jane By Design, Andie MacDowell plays, in the words of the network, a “glamorous fashion executive [who] travels the world in search of the next big style trend.“  In other words, we can’t wait to see what the costume designers put her in; I have my fingers crossed for a fur turban. In honor of MacDowell’s return to the public eye, though, we thought it might be fun to take a look at what she’s worn out and about over the last few years. No fur turbans — YET — but there’s many a gown for you to peruse, and as a bonus, seeing how awesomely her face has aged may inspire you to moisturize and drink more water. Which might be your New Year’s resolution anyway. Win-win.

Jane By Design premieres tonight (January 3rd) at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. central time) on ABC Family, and airs every Tuesday after Switched at Birth.
