To Jessica, Respectfully…

My dear Fug Girl, what are you thinking about? Kelly Preston’s dress here is not a scroll-down fug. It is not an “ostensibly lovely” dress. It is made of gray jersey knit. I hesitate to point this out, as I freely admit it could be my eyes at fault and not yours, but it sure looks like she picked up a jersey-knit sheet, wrapped it around her bare, and down the road she go. It explains the peculiar drape and the willingness of the fabric to cling to her tights and make those fugly wrinkles-under-the-drapiness. Look again, sweet Jessica, for the full effect of the fug.


  1. I have to disagree. I think that dress could come off very quickly. You have to take into account utility too. ;-)

  2. I was thinking the same thing, actually. I thought, “Hmm, the top of that dress is not so bad…Wait a minute. What is it made of???”

    O/T, but I was just posting on my new writing pet peeve, and I wondered if it irritates you as well. I’ve noticed that people are dropping the comma after the penultimate item of a list more and more, even when the absence of that comma leads to ambiguity. Have you noticed that, and does it annoy you?
