Out of the Box: Look of the Week

26 Feb

Award season is almost over, but we’ve got some more treats from the Costume Designers Guild Awards and there is of course the Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars this weekend. Plus London Fashion Week, magazine covers and more.Constance ZimmerI wanted to focus on the costume designers in the original Costume Designers Guild Awards post – it is their awards after all – so there are a few presenters featured here instead. Constance Zimmer’s Laundry by Shelli Segal floral number is the ideal ‘starting to think about spring’ frock and she’s paired it perfectly with baby blue pumps and a mirrored Vince Camuto clutch (Viola Davis is also a fan).  Betsy BrandMore floral pretty from host Betsy Brandt in a Kayat dress and pastel season is upon us.Andre HollandOh hello, Andre Holland.

Noomi RapaceAt the Burberry London Fashion Week show the stars were out including Noomi Rapace giving me all the casual coat slung over the shoulder envy. I’m not sure there are many other people who could pull off such heavy bangs on a haircut this short (maybe Karen O), but I love Rapace’s very distinct style choices. Even if I’m also concerned that her feet must be freezing in shoes like this in February. Clemence PoesyI am a sucker for both Breton stripes and trench coats so Clémence Poésy was always going to score high with this look.Danai GuriraThis has been a huge week for Danai Gurira as the play she wrote has moved from off-Broadway to Broadway for previews. Gurira’s Liberian Civil War drama Eclipsed stars Lupita Nyong’o and this is a powerhouse combination. On the TV side of things Richonne happened and I can’t tell you how long it has been since I cared about anything on The Walking Dead; the way it moved from super tender to super hot was really well done.

At the Eclipsed preview Gurira did the fantastic coat thing over a bold Altuzarra dress and this color is great on her. Brie LarsonBrie Larson is about to have her very big night if Oscar predictions are anything to go by (I really want her to win) and this cover from Women’s Wear Daily captures a moment of getting ready (in which she was actually getting ready for the Oscar nominees luncheon). In the interview Larson discusses what it has been like shooting a movie (Kong: Skull Island) at the same time as award season commitments:

“On my weekends, I’m wearing designer clothes, getting my nails painted and living a polished lifestyle, then I come back here and I’m climbing mountains covered in dirt. Until this movie comes out [in March 2017], no one gets that. It’s like having two best friends you never invite to the same dinner. But that balance has been helpful because I’ve had zero time to process any of this. Because I’m not in L.A., I can’t gauge how life has changed. I’m still myself.”

And a vague description of what we can expect come Sunday “I really want it to be special and encompass colors and visions that are meaningful to me.” Larson has had a lot more hits than misses and she is definitely one of my most anticipated.Kiernan ShipkaKiernan Shipka covers the new issue of Dazed magazine and the way she is looking directly at the viewer is disarming, somewhat confrontational and incredibly beautiful. In the interview she comes across as you might expect/hope; smart and also still sounding like a teen. The latter part is important.

Shipka discusses playing Sally – “I was totally connected to Sally’s experience and willing to go on any journey with her” – and how the women on Mad Men influenced her by being “such cool forces.” Despite being in showbiz for pretty much her whole life she has some very normal reactions to meeting other famous people including her description of the time she met Annie Clarke; “It involved me falling apart.” It is a great interview/photo shoot and you can check out the whole thing here.
