Fug File: Teen Choice Awards

Teen Choice Award Fug and Fabs: The Cast of Pretty Little Liars

In fairness, this is not the entire cast of PLL — Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario were absent; I assume they are off making a giant PowerPoint presentation to explain to one another WTF is happening on their show at the moment — but we’ve got at least fifty percent. That’s…okay, that’s a failing grade, but whatever.

Teen Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Nina Dobrev in Vionnet

I’d just like to publicly thank Nina Dobrev for giving us the perfect visual representation of my oft sung refrain, “and then Kellan Lutz showed up.”

Teen Choice Awards Well Played: Hailee Steinfeld in Elie Saab

Let’s just leave aside the fact that her facial expression is unimpressed — although I am impressed with her eyebrows:

There is a lot about this that could have gone wrong: so many patterns, so many potentially rogue sheer patches, so much — as a friend of mine used to say — of a muchness.  This dress is like a Jell-O salad: if everything goes well, it’s both visually stimulating and surprisingly good, but if things go awry, you’re just disgusted at what a crazy mess it is. Lucky, this thing set up beautifully overnight and I, for one, am delighted. I will have seconds, thank you very much.

Fug, Fines, and WTF: Various Kardashian/Jenner Offspring

I don’t know how Kim has not figured out that tight skirts with horizontal patterns across her hips do NOT do for her what she thinks they do.

But I mean, apart from looking like something you could buy on The Sims for your bangin’ bachelor pad, Kim actually is not the problem here. Nor is Kylie. No, it’s Kendall who needs a Get-a-Grip Friend to tell her she looks like she’s wearing rotting linens. Beyond that, though, the whole outfit feels like something Angie Harmon would wear, but with actual finished pant legs, and Angie Harmon — whom I love, conceptually — IS IN HER FORTIES. Kendall is eighteen. It’s cool to want to grow up to be Angie Harmon — I will feel that way until I die, I suspect — but not when you still have like THIRTY YEARS to get there.

However. Kendall did not have the worst sartorial weekend of the lot.

that honor goes to Kourtney


Teen Choice Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Shailene Woodley in Peter Pilotto

“Hello. Mama Shailene again.”

Shailene Woodley, Teen Choice Awards 2014, Peter Pilotto

“When you’re done at the sweat lodge, come on outside and bake your labia like a clay pot in the kiln that is sunshine. I’ll be over here finding you some blankets to turn into vestments.”

Teen Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Taylor Swift in Novis

I could as easily see this on Taylor coming out of the gym as on the red carpet — and she is the only person in the world right now about whom that sentence is a compliment.
