Out of the Box: Look of the Week

26 Sep

A busy week for the new Fall TV season and yet relatively light on the red carpet front for “Out of the Box” offerings. Fox and NBC have had their celebrations and now it is time for ABC to launch their new TGIT night, plus talk show appearances, the Metropolitan Opera’s Opening Night Gala and forthcoming costuming delights.

#TGIT Premiere Event Hosted by TwitterIt was the first #TGIT this week with three shows from Shondaland (Grey’s AnatomyScandal and How to Get Away with Murder) and Scandal’s Darby Stanchfield is our best dressed from the ABC event to celebrate this new drama block. The nude shoes are a letdown, but not enough to detract from this super sparkly Jasper Conran frock.

Has this one been released yet? It has now. 😝#TGIT

This is a fun group shot from this party (courtesy of Darby Stanchfield’s Instagram) featuring women from all three shows and a range of pretty great party frocks. Not so sure about Ellen Pompeo’s Op Art looking jumpsuit, but this is my standard wrinkled nose reaction to most jumpsuits. Viola Davis’ multicolor delights win the best shoes of the night and I’m glad to see such a strong variety of styles from this group of women (from l-r Camilla Luddington, Bellamy Young, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Ellen Pompeo, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Jerrika Hinton).

Kerry WsahingtonKerry Washington has been on the talk show trail this week to promote the return of Scandal and the Scandal inspired line at The Limited. This is our favorite look of Washington’s this week and as it includes polka dots the answer could easily be because, of course. Polka dots are part of the reason, however there is an overall playful quality to this Preen ‘Liberty’ dress and Washington manages to stay the right side of matchy matchy with her accessorizing. Adore.

Amy RyanAre you sensing a theme? Amy Ryan’s vintage Victor Costa gown is a polka dot dream and she looks stunning at the Metropolitan Opera’s Opening Night Gala. A strong red lip color could really set it off and yet I really like the minimalist hair/makeup/jewelry approach to this look.

Patricia ClarksonPatricia Clarkson is one of those actresses I am always thrilled to see and this applies to both the red carpet and on screen. Clarkson is the picture of sophisticated elegance while also pulling off the lace cutouts. Added bold lipstick bonus points.

The gift that keeps on giving is Mindy Kaling’s Instagram and here is what I’m sure will be one of my favorite Mindy Project looks covering bold color (yellow!) and a fun pattern.
