Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, better known to fashionistas and celebrity-snark lovers as “The Fug Girls,” are coming to D.C. to take on bad Ann Taylor pantsuits. The hilarious duo came into the spotlight with their enormously popular blog Go Fug Yourself, which critiques celebrity fashion hits and misses with sharp wit; now, after publishing two YA titles, they’re now on the road promoting their first grown-up book, a thinly veiled look at the royal romance of Will and Kate called The Royal We. Come to the reading dressed to impress, because these women rarely hold back—and we’re all better, and more amused, for it.
