Mad Men Reunion and More at the 16th Annual AFI Awards

9 Jan

It’s only the first week of January and already it feels like we are in the full thick of it when it comes to award season. Tomorrow is the Golden Globes which means plenty of pre-parties tonight, but first there is the AFI Awards luncheon showcasing the best of the year in television and film with 10 titles from each getting honored. These include Mad MenBlack-ishMr RobotUnREAL and Master of None on the TV side and Room, The Big ShortCarol and Spotlight on the film end. For the full list of honorees head here.

As it is a daytime event the looks are slightly more casual and while I love a fancy gown and dudes in tuxedos (and see also ladysuits), these are actually my ideal kind of outfits. Pattern dominates once again much to my delight and the guys are really bringing it with an array of suit/jacket choices; variety is not something you will be seeing a lot of in the dude department tomorrow night (well at least we have Alan Cumming to count on).

Kiernan Shipka, January Jones and Jon HammOne to feature in the Kodak Carousel collection and I’m getting all emotional just thinking about how Mad Men left these three characters. Jon Hamm’s blue plaid is an excellent choice for this cocktail reception in what will be a sea of black this weekend. Kiernan Shipka and January Jones have coordinated, but not in a way that looks too matchy matchy; Shipka’s collar detail and Jones’ red lipstick are both fantastic. This picture is everything.

Brie Larson and Jacob TemblayBrie Larson continuing her week of sartorial highs in this super pretty Gucci floral dress with a twist; pink snakes weaving through the foliage. Another collar to love and she looks entirely at home with one of the best dressed guys of award season. Yes I know Jacob Tremblay is only nine, but he is showing how it’s done from formal wear to tweed sports coats.

Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday and Carly ChaikinMore floral dress treats from the Mr Robot ladies with Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin also getting the excellent collar memo. Christian Slater isn’t looking too shabby either.

Yara Shahidi, Miles Brown, Marcus Sribner, Marsai MartinThe kids from Black-ish are also rocking various prints including Marsai Martin’s polka dot delight, plus more plaid from Miles Brown. Teens Yara Shahidi and Marcus Scribner don’t let the side down and all age groups are covered in the high style stakes.

Tracee Ellis RossTheir onscreen mom Tracee Ellis Ross is also killing it in with a) more standout prints, b) another fabulous collar and c) red lip color bliss.

Constance Zimmer and Sarah Gertrude ShapiroI have a feeling the UnREAL table is a whole lot of fun and I’m very much feeling co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s all-black ensemble with the dash of gold jewelry especially when paired with Constance Zimmer super sweet pink look. The shoulders on Zimmer’s dress are giving off Star Trek costume vibes and I am here for it.

Aziz AnsariAziz Ansari is a guy we can count on to turn out look super sharp and this is no exception.

Ryan GoslingSimple and effective from Ryan Gosling in a great brown suit with a super relaxed stance on the open collar.

Rami MalekRami Malek is also going for the no tie option (which is more than fine for a daytime event like this), but the button done up thing is definitely better for his whole aesthetic.
