Mostly Well Played: Amal Alamuddin Clooney

October 1, 2015

  She rarely does the press circuit with Intern George, but honestly, the cement is its own red carpet for this one. She can’t go anywhere without a photographer’s lens in her face, and she knows it. And she often uses it to great effect, but also often with one “but.” For me, here, the “but” is Read More … Go Fug Yourself


Mostly Well Played: Kerry Washington in (mostly) Giambattista Valli

September 25, 2015

    Kerry Washington is currently also sporting bangs that I’m not sure I love, and I have decided that she and Duchess Kate are friends (because why wouldn’t they be? Their kids are the same age! And also I like the idea of Kate texting Kerry Washington things like, “Olivia HAS TO BREAK UP WITH FITZ!!!” Read More … Go Fug Yourself


Well Played: Michelle Obama in Monique Lhuillier

   So, with regards to yesterday’s post, I just want to clarify that I didn’t make up or misremember the thing about the elbows being covered.

Well Played Cover: Lupita Nyong’o on Vogue, October 2015

September 20, 2015

    What is there to say, honestly, about this? It’s PERFECT. (The interview with her is quite long and interesting as well.)

Lupita also did the Read More … Go Fug Yourself


Well Played: Elizabeth Olsen in Calvin Klein at the Deauville Film Festival

September 13, 2015

   This is insanely simple, but so is a plain, grilled medium-rare filet, and I’m not sending THAT back to the restaurant kitchen. A long white t-shirt is, I think, deceptively advanced science. It’s HARD to walk around in that without people crying Hanes on you. But it’s brilliantly fitted, it’s absurdly flattering, and she’s accessorized it smartly. Read More … Go Fug Yourself


Well Reigned, Queen Elizabeth II

September 11, 2015

    When I was growing up, the idea of anyone reigning as long as Queen Victoria did seemed incredibly far-fetched and far-flung. Sixty-three years. As a kid that was just an eternity. Now it sounds crazy anyone ever doubted QEII would get there. However anyone feels about the monarchy, sixty-three years is a long time to Read More … Go Fug Yourself
