“Out of the Box” is a mostly movie affair this week including premieres, celebrations and awards aplenty. Oh and a small press tour of sorts has really kicked into gear. Sartorial highs come in a variety of forms and this week’s edition includes mini frocks, floor length affairs, ladysuits and so many patterns in the mix.
Happy Friday! And this shot of Lupita Nyong’o in Mexico City on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press tour is full of so much joy and instantly makes me smile. As I mentioned earlier this week she is really working the quilted jacket (never an easy task) and this is a fun mix of casual retro cool with fancy futuristic cool in silver Louis Vuitton. Oh hey there smiling Oscar Isaac in the background.
More Star Wars treats with Daisy Ridley wearing a very Alana Bloom looking ladysuit in Christian Dior Resort 2016 checks and Ridley is already making fashion waves in this slightly bonkers get-up. This is already meeting my high expectations for this press tour. Now all we need is some Gwendoline Christie.
I like this starry print dress on Zosia Mamet at the Sisters premiere a lot and not just because I already own something similar. Definitely the kind of thing you could dress down with knit tights and boots or up as Mamet has done here. Last week saw the first full Girls season 5 trailer released and I’m really looking forward to the new season.
Now Carey Mulligan’s Gucci number is not so easy to pull off as there is A LOT going on and yet I think she is totally pulling it off. She also put a bird on it for the British Independent Film Awards.
More long sleeve long gown pattern glory at ‘An Evening Honoring Valentino’ with Liv Tyler in Valentino (naturally) and this is giving me so many Pre-Raphaelites painting vibes (and especially this Ophelia painting). It has been a very good week for Liv Tyler and now all we need is for The Leftovers to get renewed.
More Valentino dark romanticism with a caped feather creation that might fall into the Diane Kruger is a Magical Fashion Unicorn category. Between the feathers and the green hue I am also getting flashbacks to Keri Russell’s Met Gala Altuzarra gown.
Continuing a strong end of year red carpet presence in so many different styles is Olivia Wilde who has become an “Out of the Box” regular and this time she is killing it at The Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Women In Entertainment Breakfast. There is something so Katherine Hepburn about this Marc Jacobs ensemble and I am in love with this entire look.
Constance Zimmer does a different kind of cool at the Hollywood Reporter breakfast and this is an ideal daytime event outfit. Just with a whole lot of spill potential. Excellent red lipstick and shoe choice.
This is not an endorsement of whatever is going on with Kris Jenner’s outfit (it looks like an unfinished craft project), but I can’t pass up the opportunity of showing IRL Kris Jenner embracing the American Crime Story Kris Jenner. I am so ready for this mini-series. Also Selma Blair looks really great here (also wearing a dress which would not be my first choice when near food/drink).
