The Emmys are over for another year – for a plethora of awards dress and ladysuits coverage head here – and this “Out of the Box” is all about everything else that has been going on this week with chat show appearances, movie premieres and London Fashion Week. September continues to be the busiest of fashion months and we still can’t get enough.
Lupita Nyong’o looks super cool in a pinstripe Alessandra Rich jumpsuit on her way into The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last Friday. The Paul Andrews gold pumps, sunglasses and Zac Posen bag enhance the chic factor even further and Lupita proves once again that she can work both magazine editorials and IRL fashion moments.
Going for something effortless after a striking Emmy gown is Kerry Washington at Jimmy Kimmel Live! (she wore something different on the show) wearing Mother Denim jeans, Everlane shoes and a Joie top. Choosing Olivia Pope’s favorite bag brand with Prada, but completely separating herself from this character with Miu Miu tortoiseshell sunglasses and neon pink lip color (my personal favorite is Hourglass).
Fall is here but that doesn’t mean all things colorful should be packed away, especially when attending the San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain where it isn’t quite sweater weather. Emily Blunt is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite for so many reasons and one of those is her penchant for bold sartorial choices. At this Sicario photocall she wears bright pink Jimmy Choo sandals with an even more colorful Jonathan Saunders matching striped top and skirt.
The Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition launched as part of London Fashion Week with many stars attending the event. Michelle Williams is one of the faces of this brand – her print ads are always a highlight – and unlike some other celeb/designer pairings this one is a perfect fit; building on Williams’ twee sensibilities and giving her an edge. Just look at those boots.
Alicia Vikander is a more recent addition to the Louis Vuitton brand and she is already killing it; from custom gowns to more casual affairs. This is another glam, but relaxed take and I have a feeling we are going to see Vikander in Louis Vuitton a lot come awards season.
A sequin block color sweater for Clémence Poésy and this Louis Vuitton event is giving me such a hankering for a new pair of boots.
For all we make of Claire Danes and her amazing cry face, she also has a really great laugh face. Basically she is adept at showing emotion and the one she typically has to do with the characters she portrays is anguish. Yesterday Danes got to show the other side when she was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Oscar de la Renta frock she wore is ideal for a daytime dress-up event; super pretty and relaxed.
P.S. Yes I yelped when I saw Bess Armstrong standing proud next to her one-time onscreen daughter. I knew Patty and Angela would be fine in the end. See also My So-Called Life creator Winnie Holzman standing on the other side of Danes. Oh hey Homeland’s Alex Gansa, you are fine too (but part of me really wishes it was another MSCL star like Devon Odessa, A.J. Langer or Wilson Cruz).
