Fug File: White House Correspondents' Dinner

Fugs and Recreation


As Rob Lowe might say on Parks and Rec, I am LIT’RALLY speechless.

Does this even seem like her? She’s young, her career has her running with the Poehlers and Rudds of the world, she’s descended from music royalty. Shouldn’t Rashida look hipper than this? That’s a dowdy shift trying to hide itself behind a waist napkin and a mammarial mail slot. Although that does remind me that I need to go to the post office, so maybe I should write a thank-you note and pop it in the letterbox too.

Well Played, Leslie Mann


Florals can be tough — it’s so easy to veer into loud, or ’70s sofa, or twee.

But Leslie Mann avoided all those traps somehow. This feels springy and pretty, yet still plenty dramatic. In fact, I think it’s what I want my aura to look like. Unfortunately it’s hard to give something a makeover that you can’t see. Maybe if jam a photo of this under my pillow, some random aura pixies will pop by and do me up right.

Fug or Fab: Ginnifer Goodwin


Someone needs to talk to Ginnifer Goodwin. My theory is that some dumb yahoo once told her that her face looks bad or fat or bad and fat when she smiles, and that is why she is always making these ridiculous serious faces in photos, despite being (on talk shows), TOTALLY BUBBLY and an adorable delight. Never listen to those dumb yahoos, girls.

What about her dress?

Fug or Fab: Lindsay Lohan


Well, it’s a step forward from drooping lids and heavy arm-tillery (har). But is it a true step forward, a step off to the side, or maybe a 45-degree hop northeast? Where exactly on the compass would you put this? Usually I don’t speak cardinal directions, but in this case I can because true sartorial north is generally way off in front of her.

What's her reading?

Well Played, Kate Hudson


Someone tweeted us, “Well, I think Kate Hudson won the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.”

Hard to argue — I mean, you know about my struggle with topknots, yet the updo is totally working for me. Or, to keep up the sports parlance, she didn’t merely win it; she took it in a four-game sweep. Pitched a shut-out. Had a triple-double. Double-eagled to win the Masters. Threw six TDs and no picks. Served an ace to take it 6-0, 6-0, 6-0, because she’s so badass, she’s playing best of five. Caught the Golden Snitch, yet conveniently ONLY at a time when the other team wasn’t already ahead by more than 150 points (oh, Quidditch, I will never be able to love you truly). In other other words, I love her in purple sequins, and I’m totally going to do some crunches now.

Fug or Fab: Claire Danes


I cherish this picture of Claire Danes with CBS’s Bob Schieffer.

I always dug Bob — he seems fun in interviews, and he currently moonlights as a songwriter/occasional singer for a band called Honky Tonk Confidential,which could only be more delightful if it turns out he also plays the jug for them. And here, there is something terribly charming about him hiking up his pants to flaunt his purple hosiery for Claire. It’s almost like we caught him here mid-jig. Man, if he jigs and jugs, all he’d need to do is jog, drive a Jag, and wear jeg(ging)s, and he’d be all out of vowels to buy. (Note to Bob: Skip the last one. It’s not worth it. Save your E for something better.]
