The Fug Report: Highs and Lows from the Week in Fashion


Editor’s note: Welcome to The Fug Report! Each week our fashion blogger friends Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, the sartorial geniuses behind Go Fug Yourself, will feature some of their favorite looks of the week in this space. We hope you enjoy it!

This week’s big discussion point on Go Fug Yourself was whether Emma Watson’s Harry Potter premiere dress was fabulous and visionary and beautifully fitting, or Scarlett O’Hara on an acid trip. (We came down on the “fug” side, to the surprise of no one.) Contrast that with the innately dramatic Tilda Swinton, whose W shoot was so overdone and crazy that it came off as effortless. In other magazine-related news, we lamented Sarah Jessica Parker’s recent Vogue cover, although it was nothing compared to the the melty-faced mess of Katie Holmes on InStyle. The ESPY Awards were the usual trove of fuggery, the alpha and omega of which was Brian Wilson. We fervently hope that he and Justin Theroux turn out to be the same person. Can you imagine? It would be Us Weekly’s happiest hour — although we’re not sure how Jennifer Aniston would feel. And finally, in honor of Harry Potter’s final installment, we did a fug-through-the-ages of Helena Bonham Carter. It was… there isn’t a word. So we invented one: fabtremendicent.
