Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 Dec

Welcome to one of 2014’s last editions of “Out of the Box” with another collection of the week’s best looks from talk show appearances, the red carpet and magazine cover shoots. Taking a break from pre-holiday super glitzy awards attire with a somewhat more casual week.

Wired Jessica WilliamsFirst up is my favorite Daily Show correspondent and Jessica Williams covers the super colorful January issue of Wired magazine. The shoot itself is also an array of bold block color and here is one of my favorite shots:

Jessica Williams WiredThe issue focuses on new media and in it Williams proposes a different kind of gossip site; one that uses clickbait headlines to discuss the wider issues at play. I’ll let Williams do the explaining:

“But there’s something missing in all this new new media craziness, and that is something that uses celebrity news as a way to get into a really serious analysis of our culture. The Kardashians are walking clickbait—but let’s look closer. Do Kim and Kanye affect how society feels about interracial relationships and blended families? What does our obsession with Jennifer Lawrence say about third-wave feminism? Start with a headline that’s superjuicy; a flashy, sexy picture. And then, after the first couple of lines, hit them with some really severe analysis. When they think they’re getting dirt, we give them vegetables. Which is kind of what The Daily Show does already.”

Krysten RitterKrysten Ritter appeared on Good Morning America this week and this all black ensemble manages to a fun twist on classic chic with the various textures on the coat and skirt. Bonus red lip color points on this pavement talk show appearance runway.

Emily BluntEmily Blunt’s styling on her way into Jimmy Kimmel Live is of the super casual variety and I am so into the oversized knitwear and floral pants (perhaps because I am currently wearing a variation of this).

Maisie WilliamsArya Stark is getting a new look on the next season of Game of Thrones and here is Maisie Williams at the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb premiere this week wearing a cute peplum/mini skirt all-black ensemble. Adding a pop of pattern with leopard print shoes and giving me so many flashbacks to the festival bracelets I refused to take off for months after the summer was over.


Rounding things off with one more talk show appearance and another lady TV Ate My Wardrobe hearts with Jenny Slate on Conan in this very sexy dress with a plunging neckline. Bonus Marcel the Shell singing video. I adore her:
