Fug File: super(and unsuper)models

Mostly Well-Played Omnibus: Miranda Kerr

It’s OFFICIALLY the Summer Doldrums for those of us in the Celeb-Watching Business. For example, just last week one of our photo services had paparazzi snaps of Kim Jong Un. Yeah, I…don’t even know. Thank God models are still walking out of their apartments looking well-styled, or who knows what we’d have to talk about and that would be very sad indeed. While I’m basically neutral on Miranda Kerr (#NODISRESPECTTOMIRANDAKERR, I’m just not someone who gets THAT into models), I had to admit, most of these are pretty hard to find fault with.

Fugs and Fabs at the Vogue Foundation Gala: The Models, Plus An Extra Kardashian

I’m sorry, Fug Nation. Kendall Jenner walked in freaking Chanel couture the other day. She has officially been sorted into the “model” file folder. (I have to give her credit for going out and getting herself a job, though; this has been more than one Fashion Week that she’s walked in. Runway model to me feels less “I’m a MODEL now,” too. You’re one of several, all doing the same gig, and it feels to me more like she’s actually working than if she, say, just ended up being the spokesmodel for a low-level brand of flip-flops or something.)

Fugs and Fabs: Models at the Fragrance Foundation Awards

If even the masterclass of modeling that is Coco Rocha is barely making something work, it may be time to regroup.

Unfug It Up: Karolina Kurkova

Wow, it’s like the opposite of SJP’s dress. HER elbows have WINDOWS.

I’m sorry to see that she apparently broke both her forearms, though. Do you think she’d let me sign her casts? I think on one of them I would write, “Thou Shalt Not Foresake Mascara,” and on the other, “Thou Shalt Not Reveal The Colonel’s Secret Recipe.”

What The Fug: Chrissy Teigen in I Can’t Even

Granny panties, a see-through skirt, and a poorly draped top that puts the “ow” in luau?

Looks like someone has a raging case of the Kimyes. Beyonce was right to skip the wedding, they clearly don’t have a vaccine for this yet.

anyone want to see the back?


CFDAs Well Played: Coco Rocha in Christian Siriano

I love Coco. She is never not modeling.

This could be the cover of one of those obscure regional lifestyle magazines that only ever pop up on coffee tables in fertility clinics, or really nice dentist offices, or hotel rooms, where you look at it and think, “THAT is not my lifestyle. WHY is that not my lifestyle?!?”

It’s just as glorious in full:

hooray for drama
