Out of the Box: Look of the Week

31 Jan

Switching from red carpets and the many events January has delivered (well aside from one) it’s going to be a costume heavy “Out of the Box” this week as we take a look at The Carrie DiariesHow I Met Your Mother and The Originals.

This is the Time

Prom on The Carrie Diaries didn’t disappoint; so much tulle, color, sequins and pattern. Walt looks pretty dapper in his tux too. As with most of the costuming from this show these pieces aren’t vintage ’80s and both Mouse and Maggie’s dresses are available to buy if you happen to need a prom dress. Hell even Dorrit got in on the whole gown thing and wore bubble gum pink, even if she was doing it for irony. Oh, Dorrit. It’s the last episode of season 2 tonight and it could also turn out to be the series finale as there’s no word on renewal. I hope this isn’t the case as there’s still a lot more life in this show and Walt’s story been an emotional roller coaster that I’m not ready to disembark.

How I met your motherI haven’t seen any of How I Met Your Mother this season as I fell out of love with it a few seasons back, but after seeing so many positive reactions about this week’s episode “How Your Mother Met Me” I dipped back in and I’m so glad I did. Cristin Milioti made me care about a character we didn’t even get to see and by her La Vie En Rose rendition the screen was incredibly blurry. Milioti is just so effortlessly charming and while the long path to unveiling the mother hasn’t gripped me, her performance is the opposite. In the shot above the Mother is wearing the J Crew Majesty pea coat we featured on our wish list a couple of months ago and it looks great on Milioti, love the lighter color.

The Originals 1.12It was a flashback heavy week on The Originals as we ventured back to the start of prohibition; Marcel has just returned from serving in WWI hence the uniform and the tuxedoed Klaus and Elijah are unsurprisingly dapper. So many eras of suits to cover and thankfully not as many awful flashback wigs. When will either this or TVD indulge my love of the ’70s? Then there might be terrible hair.

Taylor SwiftThis one photo is not like the others and yet there’s something just as dramatic about Taylor Swift whipping her hair at the Grammys as she plays the Jake song (or “All Too Well” to give its full name). This stunning gown with bejeweled shoulders is by Alberta Ferretti and it adds well dressed spectacle to this moment. So Taylor you didn’t win, even though for a second you thought you did, but you will always have this moment among all the awkward dancing gifs. I have no rhythm when it comes dancing and so this Tumblr is my new everything.
