Out of the Box: Look of the Week

9 Oct

Fall TV premieres and the red carpets that accompany them continue this week with American Horror Story: Hotel and The Leftovers. Plus film festivals in New York and London and Paris Fashion Week are keeping the style levels high.

Rose LeslieAt the BFI Luminous Fundraising Gala this week Rose Leslie does floral print in exquisite fashion wearing Erdem. Plus those all important pockets that another Game of Thrones star is a big fan of.

Jenna ColemanAn ideal gown for a fancy event in fall and Jenna Coleman’s pink and gold Lanvin is equal parts delicate and intricate.

Kiernan ShipkaKiernan Shipka wears Valentino at the Paris Fashion Week Valentino show and the mixture of floral pleats and lace is delightful.

Angela BassettAngela Bassett is one of the reasons I will probably end up watching at least half of American Horror Story: Hotel this season and she stuns on the red carpet in a Theia vegan leather LBD and funky embellished sandals.

Sarah PaulsonGetting futuristic vibes from Sarah Paulson’s super sleek black metallic Monique Lhuillier frock and it is another really good recent red carpet choice from Paulson.

Carey MulliganA stunning all-Chanel ensemble for Carey Mulligan’s in a gold floral sweater and lacy culottes. Yep those are culottes and not a skirt as I first thought it was. Even with that knowledge and my slight distrust of this garment it doesn’t change my mind about this winning look for the Suffragette photocall at the London Film Festival.

Greta GerwigBeige becomes interesting with Roksanda color blocking (even the shoes aren’t bothering me) and Great Gerwig’s red up do is the extra pow to this already powerful look at the Maggie’s Plan New York Film Festival premiere.

Liv Tyler and Margaret QualleyIn this week’s Behind the Insta-Scenes I mentioned that Liv Tyler and Margaret Qualley could easily play mother and daughter; this shot of them at the premiere for The Leftovers means I can double down on this suggestion. Margaret Qualley is pulling perfect side eye posing while Tyler smiles wide giving me plenty of ideas for what direction this yet to be written drama can go in.

IMG_2176Diane Kruger’s Violet Grey profile is full of stunning shots of her on the Paramount lot playing the part of a classic movie star in the vein of Grace Kelly and it was hard to narrow it down to just one. In the end I opted for the photo of Kruger wearing a Michael Kors sweater and Olympia Le-Tan stripe shorts which highlights her casual cool and beauty; this could easily be part of a Chanel campaign. The accompanying Q&A shows off Kruger’s wit and honesty – how often do actresses talk about having a hangover – and she is also someone who can get away with referring to her boyfriend as her “lover.”
