What The Fug: Hilary Duff at the Premiere of Younger

First: Hilary Duff is very likeable and good on Younger, in a way that will make you think, “aw, I missed Hilary Duff and she should be in more things!”

"Younger" Season 3 & "Impastor" Season 2 New York Premiere

This outfit makes me wish that one of those “most things” was a Dynasty reboot that manages, somehow, to still be set in 1983. She won’t even have to change!

Draperly Played: Kate Bosworth

Maybe it’s because we just wrote about the Drapers (as they compare to Marge and Homer Simpson) for Vulture and so I have Betty on the brain, but this feels ice-cold and dramatic in a very Mad Men vein.

Kate Bosworth

This woman is out for revenge. But not the martini-flinging kind; no, she’s going to cut you with the jagged, icy scrape of her words, her ennui, and her general disinterest in your base manly expectations. “I’m going out for a Manhattan and surf and turf. You want dinner? Fine, you scavenging cad. Here’s the number for Edith on the third floor. She’s always making pot roast and she’s 85 so GOOD LUCK.”

Royally Played: Wills and Kate (in Hobbs) Take Canada, Day Four, Part Two

This is sincerely a “Part Two,” in that we didn’t really get a full wardrobe change from events earlier – as far as we know. As far as WE can tell, everyone just put a coat on (it was 42 degrees Farenheit at this event, which is, to my Los Angeleno mind, COLD). I mean, is Kate possibly wearing sequined hot pats and a coconut bra under there? Yes, indeed. Regardless: allow me to regale you with a lovely and familiar coat tonight, as well as some primo gazing and a few entertaining bits and bobs left over from earlier today that didn’t make it into our first post.

Royally Played: Wills and Kate (in Dolce & Gabbana) Take Canada, Day Four, Part One

You guys! I had one brief shining moment where I thought that Kate’s shoes were metallic. It was a mere trick of the light, sadly — we have returned to the land of the Beige Shoe. Regardless, we also have volleyball and wine, which are a consistently winning pairing in my book, and this dress is both very pretty and feels vaguely like it wouldn’t be out of place in a remake of Anne of Green Gables. Which is a compliment in my book.

Also, gee, what terrible weather for wine-tasting:

MISERABLE! We haven’t gotten any wine-tasting photos in yet, but I’ll either update this post when we do, or add them to the next one, which will probably pop up here later tonight. So come on by — and if you’ve missed any of this particular tour, all our posts live here. Read early, read often.

Unfug or Fab: Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton


For real, has ANYONE been more loyal to one designer for longer than Jennifer Connelly has to Louis Vuitton? Even spokesperson Alicia Vikander switches it up, but I can’t remember the last time Jennifer DIDN’T wear LV to a major red carpet event. Fortunately for her, though it’s hit or miss, the aesthetic at least appears to be a better match than the Lawrence/Dior marriage.

Here’s her latest:

Jennifer Connelly

I wasn’t sure what I made of this at first; something the sleeve on the right is doing looks almost reptilian or alien. It’s the creasing, I think. But I also think the whole outfit NEEDS the touch of volume provided by that little poncho/valance. A drop-waist snug bodice feels too dated on its own.

The slit on that sort is major, but right now she’s working it with a minimum of peril, and WHAT HO, she has ditched the clodhoppers in favor of something sleeker. I’m more drawn to this than I expected. Where do you fall: Fug, fab, or FIX IT?

Fug or Fab: Kristen Wiig in Marc Jacobs


On one hand, the magpie in me loves this. It’s whimsical, and she’s whimsical. It’s not boring or staid; no one who wears this can be accused of “phoning it in” or “underplaying her hand.” On the other hand, it’s also BONKERS:

Premiere Of Relativity Media's "Masterminds" - Arrivals

If Jessica Fletcher ever had to go undercover in a Palm Beach nightclub to solve a crime on Murder She Wrote, that nightclub would look just like this dress. Whether that is a positive or a negative depends very much on your tolerance for the following: giant glass bricks, neon, Harvey Wallbangers, checkered linoleum tile, the movie Cocktail, cocktails in general, parrots, Birds of Paradise, Hollywood Montrose, whimsical mosaics, and bad-ass seventy-year-old bitches who are just not here for your shit. Personally, for me that’s a huge net positive.

Well Played, Ella Purnell in Dior at the premiere of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children


Ella Purnell is the star of the new adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and this is her first real major role (she did play Teen Jolie in Maleficient, and you can see why, facially, certainly). And what a debut:

"Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" New York Premiere

This is what we call, in the business, a home run.
