Basically Well Played: Lupita Nyong’o

December 9, 2015

    I was thinking the other day — and may have in fact written it here! — that Lupita so quickly became one of those celebrities who need only one name. I mean, part of that is because there aren’t any other famous Lupitas (like, there are a LOT of famous Jennifers; Garner, Lopez, Aniston, Lawrence), Read More … Go Fug Yourself

Well Played: Lupita Nyong’o in ZAC Zac Posen

Royally Played, Princess Charlotte

November 29, 2015

   In which Kensington Palace cracks the whip to bring me back to work several hours early, by releasing these on the Twitters. But what are five hours of lying on the sofa watching TV and shoving leftover queso dip in my mouth, after, all? Important work, to be sure, but not important enough to deprive Read More … Go Fug Yourself
