Out of the Box: Look of the Week

21 Feb

More fashion week material (this time from London), promoting new shows, magazine covers and a sneak look at my new favorite Mindy costume.

Peter Dinklage EsquirePeter Dinklage covers the Style issue of Esquire and is looking cool as fuck. While I still haven’t seen Game of Thrones (I know) I did finally see The Station Agent recently and Dinklage is all kinds of terrific (as is the rest of the impressive cast). And yes I really should get a move on with Game of Thrones as I had to block my ears at dinner last night when it was being discussed and for all the costuming reasons.

Felicity Jones BurberryFelicity Jones attended the Burberry Prorsum London Fashion Week show and she looks resplendent in a simple lemon chiffon color sweater and gold jacquard print pencil skirt. This is from the same pre-fall 2014 collection discussed as part of the Fantasy Costuming series earlier this week. Jones will be appearing on this season of Girls and she was also Hysteria, the movie I watched yesterday afternoon thanks to the stinking head cold I have right now. It felt like a prequel of sorts to Masters of Sex and the Hugh Dancy element helped with the pre-Hannibal anticipation (it’s back in one week!).

Mindy KalingMindy Kaling posted the above shot on Instagram a couple of days ago calling it “Costume of the week.” This is a well deserved title, even if it hasn’t graced screens yet (The Mindy Project is back April 1) and I have a weakness for yellow coats – Mindy has a lot of amazing coats in many different colors. Pairing it with two different monochrome patterns (hearts and checks) works in that Mindy bold clashing way and it’s a fun outfit.

Minnie DriverMinnie Driver is promoting About a Boy (previewing this Saturday) and I’m looking forward to it (Katims! David Walton!) and also slightly dubious as I really like the book/movie and the reviews have been pretty lukewarm. I’m sure I’ll still give it a watch. Driver’s splatter pattern Vivienne Westwood Anglomania frock with its irregular hemline mixes things up while also being the perfect dress for an appearance on Extra – though as usual the dude (the dreamy David Walton) gets to go super casual in jeans and sweater (you can see a sliver of him in the background on the right). I would be very much down with Driver opting for jeans over dresses, but hey this could have been as much her decision as his, but it just makes me think of all those Catching Fire photocalls of Jennifer Lawrence Diored to the max and the guys rocking up in standard day clothes. (*slight rant over*)
