Out of the Box: Look of the Week

4 Aug

After last week’s power dressing convention heavy “Look of the Week” we’re back on schedule with the TCA press tour dishing up the usual amount of cool/casual to slightly fancier looks. As this is the summer session it means there are plenty of floaty and floral numbers on display. Plus we’ve got a couple of other red carpet events including two TV spies infiltrating the White House.Mr Robot ladiesRami Malek and Christian Slater are great and all, but it was a really smart idea to focus this year’s Mr Robot panel on the women of this show shining a spotlight on newbie Grace Gummer, Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday and Stephanie Corneliussen as they are currently the most interesting aspect of season 2.

At TCA there are often just sitting down shots so you don’t always get a good look at the whole outfit (but you do get to see the shoes) and as with talk shows it is better to pick something that looks good seated. Pretty much don’t go too short. All four women look great and I particularly like that they are all smiling/laughing as this is something we rarely get to see on Mr Robot.Mr Robot TCANow for the stand up shot which highlights the mix of outfits including collared/blazer highs – even with the sheer aspect Stephanie Corneliussen has my fave look of the quartet – and textured frocks. Basically I am so ready for a lot more of these ladies on Mr Robot and this panel and this week’s episode is very encouraging.Issa RaeI’m really looking forward to Insecure (premieres Sunday, October 9) and star/creator Issa Rae looked fabulous at the HBO panel in a black dress with a colorful patterned trim. Plus Rae is giving me new glasses frames to covet. Sharon HorganWomen are leading the way with fall comedies at HBO and Sharon Horgan was there to discuss Divorce (also on my highly anticipated list) while giving me so many Sharon from Catastrophe vibes with her attire. Yeah things get a little confusing name wise as Sharon Horgan plays Sharon on the excellent Catastrophe and typically I want everything in her wardrobe, as I do in life it would seem.SJPIn a patterned Etro frock delight is Divorce leading lady Sarah Jessica Parker and this ideal Summer TCA wear is perfect for a post panel cocktail. Michelle DockerySometimes sitting down shots obscure what makes a great looking outfit take a turn for the worst or as Samantha Powell puts it the “sheer skirt surprise.” Case in point; Michelle Dockery at the Good Behavior panel in a lovely floral Self Portrait dress, which looks great sitting down. Michelle Dockery and Ana GasteyerAt the TCA Turner summer party Michelle Dockery switched her outfit out and the collar detail is enough to make me ignore some of the other aspects I am less keen on. Ana Gasteyer is every level of casual great with a pair of fantastic stacked shoes/red toenails.Ali ShawkatAlso at the TCA Turner summer party, Alia Shawkat is pretty much rocking my whole party aesthetic; drink in one hand and plate of food in the other. Love her very cute striped knotted shirt for extra casual vibes.America Ferrera and Ben FeldmanTwo weeks in a row for America Ferrera on “Out of the Box” and this is a much more casual setting as she promotes Superstore with co-star Ben Feldman. Both have got the casual/smart ratio down and I am especially into Ferrera’s geometric detailed pumps and pink blazer.Keri Russell and Matthew RhysNow for the fancy end of the scale as stars of The Americans Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys attended a state dinner at the White House; doing so in style and insert your Russian spy jokes here.

Russell wore an elegant draped Stephane Rolland black dress with a gold panel and it is her accessories that have caught my eye including the gold hand cuff. Going classic in a black tux and a strong hiatus beard is Matthew Rhys and for more BTS getting ready (beyond Instagram) check out People’s makeup rundown with TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Tina Turnbow.

Here is Keri Russell on The Tonight Show talking about that dinner and a white dress disaster near miss. 

And for a slice of adorable and utterly charming check out their joint interview over at The Hollywood Reporter, which is pretty much, my new favorite thing. They talk their terrible ideas for how The Americans should end, why it is so great to have a character like Elizabeth Jennings, how The Wine Show came into fruition, Matthew Rhys guest starring in the final season of Girls, sex scenes on The Americans and Felicity’s hair. It is really good. Zosia MametMore black dress and strong eye makeup this week and Zosia Mamet is crushing it at the 2016 ACE Awards. And at an event celebrating accessories she has picked well on the jewelry front.Gina RodriguezBlack dresses for all in our non-TCA portion of “Out of the Box” and Gina Rodriguez goes super sexy in an off the shoulder BCBGMAXAZRIA at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet in Beverly Hills last night. Love the silver pumps too.
