Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed as "the meanest queens in the cafeteria" by the Village Voice and "viciously funny" by The Hollywood Reporter, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan entertain 3.5 million unique visitors every month via GoFugYourself.com. Their smart, scathing dressing-down of fashion disasters has become a media sensation, with Time dubbing their website one of the fifty coolest blogs and Entertainment Weekly tagging it as one of the staff's twenty-five favorite sites on the Internet.

Now, with The Fug Awards, Heather and Jessica hand out honors such as the Sag Award for most egregious misuse of breasts and the Tanorexia Award for the person most addicted to bronzer. They prove that having an unlimited budget and a coterie of hangers-on is no barrier against committing glaring, eye-stinging sartorial missteps.

No celebrity, no matter how respected or revered, is beyond their reach. Not merely cutting, but also genuinely witty and slyly perceptive, The Fug Awards is celebrity schadenfreude at its hilarious best.

Review:

"Fantastically bitchy...great fun, unless you are famous." The Guardian

Review:

"A barbed wit that makes Cojo and Joan Rivers seem like gushing fans." Variety

Review:

"Hilarious bitches!" Defamer

Synopsis:

Hailed as "the meanest queens in the cafeteria" by the Village Voice and "viciously funny" by The Hollywood Reporter, Cocks and Morgan skewer Hollywood's worst-dressed celebrities — and no one, no matter how respected, is beyond their reach. Full-color photos throughout.

About the Author

Heather Cocks is Texas-born and England-raised, yet somehow ended up with no fun accent. But she did come out of it all with an immense love of meat and potatoes, a healthy respect for Joan Collins, and a talent for playing the recorder, so that helps.
