Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 Sep

Fall is here and it has been a busy week with multiple film/show premieres, the start of New York Fashion Week and it’s already time for the next magazine cycle. “Out of the Box” is an eclectic mix of all of these things and while we’re light on NYFW today, expect this to be very different next week when we will be taking a look at individual shows (Fantasy Costuming ahoy) and those stars attending.

This is one of the longer “Look of the Week” entries thanks to the volume of events/editorials this week so let’s get to it.

Mindy Kaling flareStarting with the magazine editorial side and Mindy Kaling’s stunning cover for the October issue of Flare. The Dries Van Noten dress is hypnotic and I’m so glad to see Mindy’s own style reflected in this outfit choice; the whole shoot is fun and the interview covers a number of things including being a boss and the designers she is drawn to.

Keri RussellKeri Russell covers the new issue of Brooklyn Magazine and the accompanying editorial serves up steely faced Elizabeth Jennings like shots such as the one above, coupled with a more playful side of Russell that you might expect from the actress who once played Felicity. The bold red lip color (Urban Decay 24/7 lip liner “69” is the product in question, thanks Tina Turnbow!) is one I will be trying out this fall and it complements the deep blue of the Katie Emilio top and Camilla and Marc skirt.

Kathryn HahnMoving on to the red carpet and Kathryn Hahn at the Venice Film Festival premiere for She’s Funny that Way wearing a Marni ensemble. Hahn adds glitz to this super chic all-black outfit with an embellished jacket while keeping it simple with crepe wide-legged pants. I am always happy when Kathryn Hahn shows up on screen and the same can be said on the red carpet.

Claire Danes Homeland premiereAlso going for the black option is Claire Danes at a New York screening of the Homeland season 4 premiere and she adds a pop of color with her pumps and lipstick choice. This is stylish without going over the top and it’s ideal for an occasion like this. Totally into the pushed up sleeves detail (although I bet they’re a lumpy nightmare if a non-loose fitting jacket is worn over the top).

Lucy LiuA sparkly Carolina Herrera navy frock for Lucy Liu at a luncheon honoring Carolina Herrera at the Lincoln Center (standard fashiony hedge backdrop). It’s a really lovely look that works for this daytime event, plus it could easily transition into an evening outfit.

Uzo AdubaTime for some runway watching attire and first up is Uzo Aduba pulling off 1970s secretary chic at the Honor show. This is a really cute floaty dress with the bow/pattern detail complementing each other.

Morgan SaylorAlso at the Honor show is Homeland’s Morgan Saylor (don’t expect to see Dana in season 4) and this is a fun pattern clashing ensemble from the 19-year old. Bonus points for the red lip color (sense a theme?) and the side pony.
