Out of the Box: Look of the Week

28 Feb

It’s a big week for TV costuming with the return of three TV Ate My Wardrobe favorites The AmericansScandal and Hannibal. All three of these shows deserve posts of their own and so we’re going to focus on the red carpet with this edition of Out of the Box. There’s been more award shows in the lead up to Sunday’s Oscars including the Costume Designers Guild Awards, we’ve got other premieres, public appearances and the first night of Late Night with Seth Meyers.

16th Costume Designers Guild Awards With Presenting Sponsor Lacoste - ArrivalsTurquoise was on trend at the Costume Designers Guild Awards with Mindy Kaling and Amy Adams wearing variations of this color and Olivia Munn is just as stunning in J. Mendel. It’s a beautiful gown and I really hope we get to see the bolder end of the color spectrum on the red carpet come Sunday.

Kiernan ShipkaMad Men darling Kiernan Shipka also attended the Costume Designers Guild Awards and she’s gone for a very different approach from the turquoise set. This Delpozo ensemble takes florals and checks in two pieces that shouldn’t work but thanks to Shipka’s age and previous sartorial hits, she pulls it off. Stick this on a twenty something and it might come across as too try hard, putting it on a teen and it’s marvelous. Don’t ever change.

"The Americans" Season 2 Premiere - ArrivalsI have a weakness for a lady tux – see Angelina Jolie at the BAFTAs – and like Jolie, Keri Russell is wearing a Saint Laurent suit and she has paired it with a super chic sleeveless Balenciaga blouse for The Americans premiere. It’s a really simple and yet elegant look and Russell has the side sweep locked down.

Seth Meyers, Amy Poehler, Joe BidenAmy Poehler stopped by the first night of Late Night with Seth Meyers and not only did she tell pretty much the best story about Joaquin Phoenix (which you can watch below), she also got to hang out with Leslie Knope’s number one crush Joe Biden. Black dress, pumps and really great hair give her automatic Out of the Box appreciation.

    […] Russell’s softer wave and it looks more grownup I guess, plus I get all the hair envy at her amazing side sweep. Hmm the mystery of where her tighter curls continues I guess but I know what you mean about how it […]
