The big Emmy weekend is coming, but before that we have a bumper “Out of the Box” with more from NYFW, TIFF and some great magazine covers.
For all the best looks from the Creative Arts Emmys held over two night’s last weekend head here.There will be no Mad Men at the Emmys this year, but thankfully the cast has been doing the rounds at NYFW. First we had Jon Hamm rocking the shit out of a Tom Ford suit and now Christina Hendricks is giving off stunning vibes at the Naeem Khan show. There’s something a little nightwear about this and yet it is working. Great lip color too.
Oh and for more Jon Hamm (this time with a bad haircut) check out our brand new Gilmore Girls chat.At Michael Kors, Emily Blunt also gives great lipstick and ticks all the polka dot and large button boxes. The sleeves are a flare too far for me and I’d like to see the blazer without them, but that is a slight nitpick and I am thrilled we will be seeing a lot more of Blunt in the lead up to The Girl on a Train.More patterned treats on offer at Michael Kors with some A+ pattern clashing from Cynthia Erivo and this time the sleeves are not a cumbersome detail. Between this and BrainDead I want to wear all the super cute bow/tie detail office attire. At the Gemfields in Conversation cocktail party Keri Russell is maybe a magical fashion unicorn in that she looks great in off the shoulder puffy sleeves. This event took place at the hotel where I am staying on honeymoon, which also adds to my excitement levels. Russell is definitely on my Emmy red carpet most anticipated list. Moving on to TIFF and at the Queen of Katwe premiere Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo look stunning in ensembles that strongly nod to the subject of their movie. The bold color of Lupita’s Carolina Herrera gown and head wrap are striking and you can see the intricate detail of the floral aspect of the dress here.
There are a few men we regularly feature when it comes to great red carpet style and Oyelowo is one of them as he has shown on a number of occasions that a black tux is not the only option; here he goes one step further and looks great doing so.The pair is also giving great airport style this week.Ladysuit treats this week and at the TIFF InStyle/HFPA party Evan Rachel Wood gives great tailoring and peek-a-boo color with green pumps. Tulip from Preacher is one of this year’s TV style icons for her bold mix of edgy with feminine and Ruth Negga has also been showing how it is done on the red carpet. At the same InStyle event, Negga goes for a soft and romantic sartorial choice with an injection of shoe color always does the trick. At a screening of Transparent in Washington D.C. – season 3 lands on Amazon Prime Friday, September 23 – there’s a whole lot of looks to love with pleated leather skirts (currently on my clothing wish list), stripes and flowers. Look for more of this cast at the Emmys this weekend.At a mid-week Emmy kickoff event Constance Zimmer also does the off the shoulder thing and maybe this is a trend I actually really love. One repeat look I am definitely here for is color pumps and Zimmer nails this one too.W Magazine cover star Julia Louis-Dreyfus will also be hitting the red carpet at the weekend and she normally makes our best dressed list; this close up beauty shot is mesmerizing.October continues to deliver on the much better than the September issue covers and Lupita Nyong’o for Vogue is another to add to this list. Shot by Mario Testino in her family’s Kenyan village celebrating Nyong’o’s heritage and this cover and accompanying editorial is stunning. And this might be an “Out of the Box” record with three different looks this week for Lupita.
