Out of the Box: Look of the Week 

8 Jul

A relatively quiet week on the red carpet front what with the holiday weekend (for candids check out “Behind the Insta-Scenes“), but we’ve still got plenty of sartorial treats from sportswear at Wimbledon, what to wear while watching tennis, patterns and another Interview Magazine editorial to salivate over.
img_3847Nike produced a boho floaty dress, which would be great for the beach or Coachella. Less great for playing tennis in. Good job, guys. Serena Williams escaped this calamity and opted instead for a look that is both stylish and practical with a very sporty top and a pleated skirt; mixing contemporary with traditional. If only the pleated skirts we wore for games at high school looked this good.img_3848Giving great style both in victory and in motion with this ballerina like shot. Serena Williams is incredible on every level.img_3846This is from week 1 of Wimbledon, but I somehow missed Kim Sears wearing a fantastic floral Kate Spade dress that featured in NYFW Fantasy Costuming last year. A departure from the first time Kim Sears graced these pages wearing the best sweater responding to a swearing ‘controversy’ at the Australian Open.img_3840Sophie Turner goes for simple chic on Day 10 of Wimbledon in a white shirt and pencil skirt.
img_3837Keeping on the Game of Thrones track with Maisie Williams at the Serpentine Summer Party killing it in a variety of green patterned pieces fit for Emerald City; a floral Milly frock and matching Louboutin shoes and clutch. I’m not crazy about the choker because of my general choker feelings, but it works with this look and Williams’ general 90s loving vibe.img_3841Janelle Monáe does a very different and incredible looking ladysuit in Giuseppe Zanotti at the Queen Sugar screening in New Orleans. It can be hard to make hats work, but every single thing about the styling from H to T (oh hey Tyra) is cool as fuck.  img_3842Interview Magazine has been very good to us recently and we’re going to end this week with some much needed Idris Elba. The photos include a variety of styling from suits to shirts to vests with the above being my favorite from the set. In the interview with Jon Favreau, Elba discusses a number of things include his desire to direct, recent projects and his TV background:

“Television is where I cut my teeth. One of my first jobs was in a soap opera, five days a week. And what I found is, although there are different directors coming in and different crews, you just lived in your character. It’s the nature of the story, the ongoing story, and it can get deeper and deeper.”

It is well worth reading the whole thing.
