Out of the Box: Look of the Week

13 Jun

There has been a whole host of events this week as the summer months are filled by conversations about the season of TV we have just experienced, along with various charity and fashion soirees taking place. This week’s “Out of the Box” is showcasing the best of these including the Fox “Girls Night Out” panel, the Women in Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards and the amfAR Inspiration Gala.

Mindy KalingMindy Kaling’s looking a little trippy in Marc by Marc Jacobs at Fox’s “Girls Night Out.” I could see Megan Draper wearing this especially as it’s long sleeved and showing a whole lot of leg; the pattern is rather hypnotic and is on point with the late 60s psychedelic style.

chelsea perettiChelsea Peretti is a TV Ate My Wardrobe sweater queen on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and at the Fox “Girls Night Out” she is pulling off two trends we’re not always on board with; tulip dresses and open toe booties.

Laverne Cox amfarThe Orange is the New Black season 2 watch is preceding nicely (about to watch episode 8) and one thing it needs more of is Sophia. Lucky for us Laverne Cox has been hitting up various events (and the cover of Time) such as the amfAR Inspiration Gala in this stunning midnight blue gown.

Kerry WashingtonPicking up an accolade for excellence in television at the Women in Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards is a good reason to return to the red carpet and Kerry Washington does just this in a very cool paint splatter effect Sportmax skirt and black top. Orange is what ties the look together without going too matchy matchy with lip color and AMAZING Louboutin ‘Geo’ studded toecap pumps.

Rose ByrneThe ‘Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future’ is an honor that has been bestowed on Rose Byrne and Max Mara threw a cocktail party with W Magazine to celebrate. Byrne is of course in Max Mara and the sequins combined with a plunging neckline help her stand out. I love the choice of silver capped pumps and her minimal makeup (even though I’d love to see either a deep red or bright pink lip color, but that might just be me).

Kiernan ShipkaAlso attending this Max Mara event is Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka and she continues to kill it on the red carpet. Wearing Max Mara Shipka goes for something edgier with a leather skirt on the bottom and contrasts this with a white silk top. The yellow Christian Louboutin bag adds a pop of color and she once again nails the age appropriateness of her sartorial choices. Jon Hamm recently spoke about Shipka during this LA Times roundtable discussion just how lucky they were to get someone as talented as Shipka from such a young age.
