Fergie in Beverly Hills

Posted on December 18, 2013

This is all kind of exhausting to look at.

Fergie seen shopping with a female friend in Beverly Hills.

The walking definition of “try-hard.” We just want to take her by the shoulders and say firmly, “Honey. Calm down. You don’t have to wear all the things at the same time.”

      It is unfathomable how you put on that much and then think “I should tie this ridiculous scarf around my hips.” Oh Fergie.

      • Clueless_Jock

        It’s not even a scarf. It’s a table runner that happened to match her outfit.

        • Theresa

          Or maybe it was from the restaurant where she just had lunch and it caught on her belt loop and her friend didn’t have the heart to tell her, and instead is just holding her hand in silent sympathy.

          • judybrowni

            Or a tallit, Jewish prayer shawl (usually worn by men) which makes it that much more disconcerting and blasphemous paired with the greasy faded lumberjack shirt.

            • Sue Shea

              that’s totally what i thought it was!

            • cmb92191

              It’s a cross between a tallit and a Tzitzit. I agree the shirt and pumps just make it a hot mess.

            • Jessica Sabat

              Yup. I’m getting Chassisic lumberjack goes shopping in LA.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        And it would be bad enough if she were alone. But she’s got a friend with her who could have clearly told her to take off about 20 things before she left the house. “Friend” my ass – you don’t let a friend go out in public looking like that!

    • deathandthestrawberry

      Her bag reminds me of my husband’s travel shaving kit. But I kind of like the shoes.

      • Qitkat

        And it reminded me of a traveling breast pump kit.

    • krelnick

      Rabbi grunge punk?

      • rh33

        when did a prayer shawl become an accessory?

        • annabelle archer

          Guessing around the same time as rosary beads.

        • PeaceBang

          I think the sad fact is that she had deli for lunch and sat on a rabbi, who then got caught in her … well, one mustn’t say it.

    • sagecreek

      I was going to defend her as just having a cazh day out until I saw the shoes.

    • annabelle archer

      Rocker Cholo Rabbi is, in fact, a bit much for a pap walk in Bev Hills.

      • Sue Shea

        omg. perfect.

      • formerlyAnon

        I don’t know why, exactly, but the chola component saves this for me. Kinda. Sorta.

    • alyce1213

      What a mish-mash. The waist scarf is so talith-like. “Baruch ata” Fergie.

    • Sarah

      One baby step closer to morphing into Steven Tyler, which is clearly her ultimate goal!

      • Little_Olive

        Cant stop laughing

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Me neither!

    • elemspbee

      and the hair with that face? what’s happening?

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I’ll be nice and blame new baby sleep deprivation. Because there’s really no excuse.

    • SuzyQuzey

      Why does her hair ALWAYS look so awful?

    • nowlo

      This is what happens when you decide to Mad Libs your outfit for the day.

    • Glam Dixie

      Please, please, please, Santa Baby Jesus, bring Fergie a stylist and a haircut. Amen.

    • hughman

      Duckface Dynasty.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      She is clearly not following Coco Chanel’s rule about taking one thing off…

    • sojourneryouth

      I was choking over the one button at the throat (you are not a Chola, Fergie), but the fringed scarf tied around the waist? Hold me, baby Jeebus!

    • kimmeister

      Are those mini brass knuckles she has on?

      Those aren’t your sunglasses when an observer at first wonders if your brows are part of the design of the sunglasses.

      • quiltrx

        Good heavens…in trying to take in all this garbage in one outfit, I completely missed the knucks. That’s it…I think it’s time to adjust her meds.

    • Sarah

      I don’t understand going to the trouble of putting on leather leggings when you’re going out in public with that hair. Hope she picks up a deep conditioning treatment while she’s out.

    • Ashleigh

      she was cold!

    • cocohall

      Fergie seems to have come down with a severe case of Stefanitis. Gwen could figure out how to make these pieces work. Fergie just looks like she mugged a lumberjack, and a Jewish boy on his way to temple. . . .But I’m also giving her a baby brain pass. I’m sure she is getting no sleep.

      • sojourneryouth

        Love it! May have to steal “Stefanitis.” :)

    • Imasewsure

      Ditch the useless scarf (one hip was cold?) and the ugly shoes and I’m fine with the rest… ignoring the hair of course

    • Judy_J

      That thing around her waist looks like a prayer shawl.

      • MrsDanvers

        I’m pretty sure it is a prayer shawl and I find that thoughtless and immature and so five minutes ago. Madonna and Sinead O’Connor did blasphemy to death.

    • Rebecca Harvey

      Purse looks like a shaving kit.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      She clearly doesn’t have cats.

      • kimmeister

        Or if she does, they’re declawed sphinxes.

      • conniemd

        Oh that is so true. I totally love scarves and hung them on this “butterfly” hanger with lots of holes for each scarf on my coat rack and the kitties went totally nuts jumping and grabbing for all the lovely fringe hanging down.

    • fashion4ever

      She desperately needs a makeover. I have second-hand embarrassment

      • kimmeister

        “Second-hand embarrassment” – You just perfectly described the feeling I have on a near-daily basis for other people. Thank you.

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        Those brilliant Germans have a word for that, and it’s my favorite: “fremdschämen”.

    • KT

      HA I swear I was just thinking “the definition of trying too hard” before I scrolled down to your comment. Right there with you. Also she just looks like half the women who are wandering around Beverly Hills, clinging to their youth, and possibly drunk or on Xanax.

    • ashtangajunkie

      You know, all of this business together and what bugs me most is the top button of Paul Bunyan’s jacket.

    • jbj613

      Why is she wearing a talit around her waist?

    • bellafigura1

      Wait, where did the baby go? She was pregnant for so long I stopped paying attention.

      • MilaXX

        Baby is 3 mths or so. There was a Halloween picture so maybe 4 mths. Either way baby looks cute from what I recall.

    • Tracy_Flick

      I hope she’s not shopping anywhere with escalators.

    • quiltrx

      Let’s see, what is this? Hmm…Vato-shawl praying-GNR member-prissy lady-shaving kit-trailer trash-hooker?
      Someone get this gal a makeover…

      • AmeliaEve

        You got it – the top-buttoned Pendleton is pure cholo.

    • MilaXX

      Lose the shawl she had rolled up and wrapped around her waist. The shoes aren’t great, but passable.

    • boweryboy

      I have no words for this.

    • DTLAFamilies

      *Jackie Mason voice* She’s wearing a tallis? Fergie’s a rabbi now?

      • Tanya Wade

        My first thought! I work with them and see these every day. Oy. Fergie!

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      Is she in a gender-bent rock-n-roll production of Fiddler on the Roof?

    • Chadge

      Eddie Vedder has really let himself go.

    • PastryGoddess

      If I tried to decribe all of the things she had on in one breath. I’m pretty sure I’d die

    • crash1212

      I love all the pieces – especially the tonal plaid shirt and the killer shoes – just not maybe all together at the same time.

    • GillianHolroyd

      Has she ever dressed well? I don’t think so.

    • Fannie Wolston

      Grubby greasy puffy . Don’t blame it on the baby though

    • Naďa Grabanova

      its so ridiculous how much time these people spend on commenting post like this…i mean dammit people mind your business

      • formerlyAnon


    • formerlyAnon

      I will be devil’s advocate: she often goes a bit far. I find this a pretty appealing way to do it.

    • Town

      She looks like she should be in a low rider in some South Central drive-by neighborhood, circa 1991.

    • Vincent Salemno

      Who cares what Fergie was wearing, did anyone else see her friend @FamousSparkle she was shopping with that day?! Hot damn! That’s the pop star who just released her “Work Bitch on a Budget” video last week! Soooooo hawt!

    • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

      Remember those people who used to say Elvis wasn’t dead, that they saw him eating pancakes at IHOP? After seeing this picture, they’re gonna start saying “Kurt Cobain isn’t dead — I saw him walking down the street in Beverly HiIls the other day…” No offense, Kurt.

    • marlie

      If she’d ditched the plaid shirt, this wouldn’t be too bad. But Fergie ALWAYS goes out wearing one or two (or ten) items too many.

    • Ann VerWiebe

      And the shirt actually makes her look heavy. Why?

    • lifeisastory

      Her nails scare me. I’d be afraid to hold hands with someone with those nails. Doesn’t she have a baby?

    • Dan_In_NYC

      Exactly… trying to hard. I would also accept the alternate definition of “Too old for this look.”

    • MsOlympia

      Did they seriously have to caption that her friend is female?
