Met Ball Well Playeds and Hmms and Zzzs: More Celebs Who Look Perfectly Fine, Mostly, But Also Seriously Could Be Absolutely Anywhere Else


So, there is acreage between “catering to your dramatic whims” and “looking like a crazypants naked and/or upholstered crackpot,” and the whole point of the Met Ball is the former, even if you fall on your face doing it (which leads to the latter, and outfits like that are exactly why Anna’s annual gala is such a hilarious good time and must never, ever change, even when we get capsy over people’s insane choices). Don’t we think it’s about time, say, Renee Zellweger had some semblance of a dramatic whim again? She is operating at a severe dramatic whimsy deficit. Her last one was Kenny Chesney, I think, and although that didn’t turn out so well for her, it was a VERY exciting time for all of us looky-loos. ALWAYS THINK OF THE LOOKY-LOOS. If we’re stuck with a stupid term like that to describe what we’re doing, then at least please make sure we’re having fun doing it.

Paris Fugshion Week: Grab Bag, part 3


I know YSL is going by Saint Laurent now, but that seems so crazy to me. It’s YSL, people. It will always be YSL. I hate change. Also included: John Galliano, which is being run by someone else now, and I’m sure that person spends much of his day being like, “I KNOW I KNOW, but I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT WHOLE THING.”

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: People Who Changed Clothes While We Were Sleeping


It happens ever year: Nominees and guests change their outfits for the post-parties so that their trains don’t get trampled, and we don’t get the pictures before bedtime. Maybe I should just start writing through the night. Can you imagine how much MORE delirious our posts would be? We’d have the Royal Wedding times fifty. I’d try it if that didn’t sound perilous.

Paris Fugshion Week: YSL Spring/Summer 2013


This is going to be a fun one for all the fantasy stylists in Fug Nation. The collection itself gets a little samey at times, but when it pops, it pops like Pop Rocks in soda.
