Well Played: Emmy Rossum in Salvatore Ferragamo

December 2, 2015

  For something so monochromatic to work, I have to like all the parts. And I DO: The dress is cute, the lip is perfect on her coloring, and the red pump is a deliciously witchy style — which contrasts nicely with how relatively innocent the rest is. I appreciate the dollop of drama inherent in showing up Read More … Go Fug Yourself

Well Played: Olivia Wilde in Michael Kors

December 1, 2015

  Maybe this is getting high marks from me because, juxtaposed with Rachel McAdams’ inky hell storm of a jumpsuit, Olivia’s is slick perfection. But I think it might even be good on its own merits. It’s a BIT of a Monet — what I thought was laser-cut leather, on the top, is actually little sparkles Read More … Go Fug Yourself

Mostly Well Played: Patina Miller in Bibhu Mohapatra

December 1, 2015

  I love how interesting this bodice is. But I’ve decided I want Patina Miller to have a real Come To Jesus with her makeup person. She’s so stunning, but on the Mockingjay promotional trail, the makeup has always let down her face, and this is no exception. Here, I might’ve done a really deep berry lip.

Well Played, Lizzy Caplan in Roland Mouret

November 27, 2015

    LIzzy Caplan has a way of taking outfits that I know would look bad on my shape and making me nonetheless want to put them on my body RIGHT THAT MINUTE. Sigh. I can’t even get mad at the random black panel. The colors are so cute, and she looks delightful. I have nothing funny Read More … Go Fug Yourself

Mostly Well Played: The Coats of Adele

November 26, 2015

    I did not know until today that pictures of Adele walking around in coats was my favorite thing, but apparently it is! I love her coats and also her haircut and her sunglasses and her eyeliner and her Adele-ness. Read More … Go Fug Yourself

American Music Awards Well Played, Selena Gomez in Givenchy

November 23, 2015

   First and foremost: I am not in love with this from behind: It seems like it’s designed to be worn by a woman six inches taller than Selena is, and probably it was. But from the front: I look at her in this — so adult, so elegant — and then at Bieber in his Read More … Go Fug Yourself

Well Played: Miranda Kerr in Peter Pilotto

November 19, 2015

   Miranda wore this to some ceremony to do with the star on the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, and it’s really hard for me not to take that into account when evaluating it. If she were going on the Today show in, say, May, or to a photocall in London in July, or even to the lighting of Read More … Go Fug Yourself
