Out of the Box: Look of the Week

3 Oct

Time to check in on the style highlights of the week and it’s all about the movie premieres including Gone Girl, Paris Fashion Week and various other events.

Carrie CoonOne of the breakout stars of this year has been The Leftovers’ Carrie Coon who came out of nowhere (well, not exactly nowhere as she’s Tony nominated) to devastate us on a weekly basis as Nora Durst. Now she’s starring in Gone Girl as Ben Affleck’s twin sister in a role that grounds the protagonist of this story – and she’s really pretty amazing in it – adding both sympathy to Nick and humor to proceedings. At the New York Film Festival screening Coon looks striking in a beautiful floral strapless gown. Bonus points for the green not too matchy-matchy clutch and strong pink lips color.

Leighton MeesterLeighton Meester gives a monochromatic twist in Balmain at the premiere for The Judge. There’s something very retro-futuristic about this long sleeved/short hemline dress that makes me think of a 1960s sci-fi or even spy show. Just so long as no one mistakes the skirt detail for spare napkins.

Allison WilliamsAllison Williams has a very different take on black and white with a sporty contrast collar and waist in super chic Vionnet at the 2014 Global Citizen Festival. It’s a slight departure for the Girls star and while it’s still ultra feminine and kinda preppy, it’s not so overtly girly.

Natalie Dormer Dior Paris Fashion weekSpeaking of chic, here is Natalie Dormer attending the Dior runway show at Paris Fashion week looking laid back and stylish all at one. This is a fantastic coat.

Kiernan ShipkaAdding some bright color to this week’s pretty muted “Out of the Box” is Kiernan Shipka in Valentino at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Hollywood Costume opening party. This is a fun, cute outfit on the Mad Men star as she continues to kill it on the red carpet, while still looking her age. A dress like this might not work on an actress over 20, but that’s definitely not a problem here. Instead of opting for strappy gold sandals or blah nude heels, Shipka’s continued the bright theme with amazing orange Valentino ‘Rockstud’ pumps.

Danai GuriraOne more “Out of the Box” injection of bold color and this one is courtesy of Danai Gurira at The Walking Dead season 5 premiere (the show returns Sunday, October 12) wearing a pink geometric Christian Siriano number. Added skirt flaps have been a big trend this week and I’m enjoying this silhouette shake up.
