Teen Choice Fug? Fashion choices at their worst.

By  | 

Hilary Duff has been voted Teen Choice Fug by Go Fug Yourself

What is a fug?

“Fug” comes from “fugly,” which is a contraction of “fantastically ugly” (or an f-word more prurient, if you like, but we are clean and delightful young ladies who don't engage in that kind of filth, dammit).

fug (n.)
1. A state of extreme ugliness. Ex: “The level of fug at the Video Music Awards is always hard to stomach.”

Fugly, however, is a self-inflicted state, and no one seems to excel at dwelling in the depths of fug quite like pretty people with money to spare and little sense of how to spend it. Celebrities are always skipping around in public wearing things that are phenomenally perplexing; as these red-carpet dwellers are often considered trendsetters or bastions of Hip Present and Hip Future, we like to take them to task for careless choices.

Why did Hilary Duff make the Fug list at the Teen Choice Awards?

Well, apparently, she made some bad fashion choices…

Hilary Duff, in one swoop, is becoming the unwitting master of the scrolldown fug. During her hosting gig at the Teen Choice awards, she seemed to have significant trouble finishing what she started — by which I mean, her dresses all look like relatively normal, fluffy, girly confections, until you scan her whole body and realize the outfits have whipped themselves into a fugly frenzy somewhere in the vicinity of her thighs.

See for yourself. Red – good. Corset detailing – good. Baby top – good. Flows on midsection – good. Shoes and bracelet – good. Bloomers – bad. And then we come to the award dress. The dots are only so-so – we love to hate them. But the ruffle – looks like it's been dunked in dirty water and torn a bit. I like the flower and the hair, though. She looks much more mature.

I think it's actually just that her skirt is elasticized so that it bunches and billows around her bum. That ruffle is just irresponsible. I'm not sure which is actually worse — real bloomers, or the yen to recreate the effect of bloomers by turning a dress into a drawstring sack. Is she stashing something up there? Is that where her she keeps her whitening trays? Did something bite her in the behind, causing it to swell to such insane proportions that only a pear-shaped outfit could cover it? Go Fug Yourself
