The Fugroom


There is something so cheesy about this gown.

And I don’t mean the color; that’s less fromage than it is the color of a textbook that’s been overzealously highlighted by a paranoid ninth-grader. But the studs and the peekaboo and the short front zipper and the knee curtains… it feels like something a Real Housewife would wear to the Grammys, along with about two kegs’ worth of bronzer and nine pounds of hair.

    I’m not a fan of the color but she’s actually wearing it well. Chop it off at the knees, minus the zipper and I’m good.

    It almost seems like the dress should have ended where the studs cut across the bottom. The whole thing just looks awkward.

    Fugly with a capital FUG.

    This is what you wear when you go to something called “God’s Love – We Deliver” and want them to prove it.

      I don’t understand this comment, but for the record God’s Love is a charity that provides excess food from restaurants and caterers to the needy.

    I agree that this looks tacky..the color plus the studs plus the cutout plus the slit equals not good.

    It looks like it should be a jumpsuit, the way it is cut. Not that I’m saying it would be any better that way, but it’s just the way it looks.

    It feels very 80′s, like something you’d see Terri Hatcher or Cindy Crawford wear back then, but accessorized with ginormous earrings and shy-high hair,

    Is there a House of ABBA now? I swear this is straight from the costuming department of Broadway’s Mama Mia!

    Librarian hair, cross-dressing showgirl dress.

    Love the color. The rest is FUG City.

    I think it’s just that the fabric looks so cheap & flimsy. (and the studs aren’t helping!)

    Her face looks dirty to add to the shame of this debacle. Nothing nice about this.

      It does look dirty. That is very much the wrong shade of bronzer for her.

      Which just makes it MORE Real Housewife-y!

    Tacky! So, really a perfect choice for her.

    Looks like a cheap hooker.

    Terrible, just terrible. That dress has no redeeming features whatsoever.

    The fact that I cannot stand her does not affect my judgement when I say this dress is awful! Too many things going on!

    In another color, she’d rock it.

    I for real saw this and thought she was at an ABBA costume party.

    So porny looking.

    No matter the color, I think the zipper + cut out + studs is too much. Add the color to it, and it is a big tacky obnoxious mess. I do like that color, but it is so overwhelming that it only looks good on a simple cut balanced with a classy amount of skin (arms, legs, etc.).

    Looks like the jumpsuits that the Brady children wear at the end of THE BRADY BUNCH MOVIE.

    I’m so clumsy I might step through the “slit” in the front of the dress and fall on my face.. Hopefully she’s more graceful that I am.. :/

    Agree, but not enough to stop my girl crush on her

    She looks like an Italian ‘Veline’ girl in that dress, and that is not a compliment.

      I had to Google that, and no, no it is not. It’s also very apt.

    A poor design. Very unattractive and it definitely isn’t her color.

    As Michael K would say, this gave me a case of the HAHAHAHAHAs

    I can’t separate the top and bottom parts. The top, to me, looks like she’s about to be shot our of a canon or she’s a flying trapeze artist or something. The bottom I can’t even understand because I can see her legs are askew or doing some weird posing thing but the slit doesn’t match up so she just looks off all around. I don’t even want to get into the hardware on that thing.
