Fug File: Teen Choice Awards

Teen Choice Awards Fug or Fab (Mostly Fab, I Think?): Nina Dobrev


The bad news is, Vampire Diaries doesn’t come back until October. The good news is, that’s because the CW wants to minimize reruns and/or off weeks, so once it DOES come back we can mainline it. That doesn’t answer the question of how we feel about this outfit, but at least I feel like we all worked through some TV angst together and found a silver lining. For the clothes, well, let’s take to the slides for a more thorough examination. I think I like this? I do not know why I am unable to commit just yet? And why am I uptalking? But I will note with certainty: I am in some serious unrequited love with those shoes — and I say “unrequited” because if they felt the same way, they would cost $99 and be available on Zappos.

Teen Choice Awards Scrolldown Fug: Vanessa Marano


Switched at Birth is really a wonderful, wonderful show — it has great actors, innovative scenes all in sign language, interesting adult characters, and lots of good hair. I’m saying all this now so that when I get to the part where I both hate her shoes and am afraid they will come find me in the night and jam themselves up my nose until I beg for mercy, you will know I MEAN it, and not just that my bile valve is stuck on “geyser.”

Teen Choice Awards Bierberly Played: Bieber


“Word up, sex people. Welcome to the Bieb-0210, where we dress for the war zone that is my hotel bed — a.k.a., that place where I get out my incredibly heavy artillery and lay you down and do the things I read about in my mom’s Cosmo back issues, which I keep in a binder labeled ’50 Shades of HEYYYYYY.’ Selena is all, ‘WHAT? Nobody does that with Tabasco sauce,’ and I’m all, ‘DON’T THEY, SUGARFACE?’ and then she’s like, ‘Ugh, I need a beer,’ and I’m all, ‘GOOD ‘CAUSE PHINEAS AND FERB IS ON ANYWAY.’ Um, I mean, come and get up in my frisky business, ladygirls.”

Teen Choice Award Fug Carpet: Carly Rae Jepsen


Portions of Fug Nation get worked up whenever I feature CRJ here, like I drove over to your house and beat you about the head with your cassingle of “Call Me Maybe.” You guys, I sing it in the shower, too. I sincerely just think it’s misguided that her record label seems, historically, to be trying to present her like a seventeen year old when she’s a grown-up woman. Doesn’t mean I think SHE is old, or that 27 is old, or that she’s the devil, or that you, dear readers, are not allowed to wear shorts to the store or anything. It just means that I think her handlers are making some bizarre choices in terms of the way they are marketing her, driven by the fact that her freakishly catchy song IS young-sounding, and those marketing choices are not sustainable and will, in fact, just get weirder if they keep going down this road. The good news is, that’s not what I’m going to be complaining about here.

Teen Choice Awards Fugs and Funs and Fines: Demi Lovato and Kevin McHale


I think hanging out with Britney too much is starting to seep into Demi’s brain.  Although, honestly, if BRITNEY were wearing this first look, I would be DYING, y’all. Because Britney would never. Because Britney is kind of snoozy lately, despite the fact that Britney is the Grand Dame of that show, and should J Lo it up a little bit. On the other hand, I DO appreciate Demi’s commitment to popping up places looking kind of crazy and be-spangled. At least she’s having fun. That being said…is this perhaps TOO MUCH FUN? Or is there such a thing? Let’s look at her red carpet look and then examine what she, and noted crackpot-dresser and co-host Kevin McHale wore during the show. Turns out that he cleans up well.

Teen Choice Awards Unfug It Up Carpet: Ashley Benson


You guys know I love her; every time someone asked, this last week, who was our dream casting for Brooke Berlin, Ashley’s name came up. HOWEVER:

This just ain’t working. I am tempted to fix it by putting a jacket of some sort on her, but I’m worried that’s just going to make her look square — it would have to be a really slim jacket, because those pants have some major (unsuccessful) volume.  How would you fix this? Would it even be better if she just unrolled the pants? HELP A GIRL OUT.
