Last Monday evening I sat in a hotel room and watched the last ever episode of Gilmore Girls, well the last episode until now and the 4-part special Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life special series lands on Netflix this Friday.
While season 7 was definitely flawed – I think I maybe disliked season 6 more – the finale did a fine job of wrapping things up and I definitely ugly cried (a lot of this was to do with Richard Sherman). However, the absence of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s creative voice is noticeable and so thankfully Gilmore Girls is getting another shot.
Here are the best of the red carpet photos/outfits from the premiere that was held in LA on Friday with a bonus new trailer at the end.Group shot! Featuring all your faves – it took me a moment to realize who was standing next to Alexis Bledel and it is Finn – and it might be a total coincidence but everyone seems to have got the same “wear something in the black outfit family” memo. Gilmore ladies make me so happy and I also forget sometimes that they are not actually related. This is a great example of how to co-ordinate without matching and show off individual style. Lauren Graham once again goes classic LBD as she did in Berlin; Alexis Bledel has switched out pleated silver Dion Lee for gold detail Cynthia Rowley and Kelly Bishop is giving off great textured metallic teal. It might be the Cary from Good Wife factor or because of the Matt Czuchry charm, but if I had to pick one of Rory’s not so great love interests it would definitely be Logan. Not that Rory (or even we) should have to choose because Team Rory and not trash boyfriends all the way.
BUT Matt Czuchry does scrub up extremely well and I instantly want to rewatch The Good Wife after seeing him in this suit.I’m not sure how Michel would feel about sneakers on the red carpet, I think he could justify it if he saw it on a blog or fashion magazine and Yanic Truesdale is selling the smart/casual vibe well.
Keiko Agena got the black attire memo and gives it a shot of bold color and pattern in a Clover Canyon frock. Love her Miu Miu pumps too.Ah, Christopher. This is where we enter the Gilmore Girls characters that were also Luke/Lorelai obstacles section of this red carpet and urgh the end of season 6/the whole marriage plot. Anyway, David Sutcliffe looks great and the silver in his beard is working like a charm. Just no more Lorelai and Christopher. Carrying on with this theme and while it is definitely not Vanessa Marano’s fault, the whole April storyline is kinda the worst. Marano is pulling a full Alicia Florrick here in a zipped jacket and she is joined by her actress sister Laura Marano in a very cute red dress.
Lauren Graham’s other TV daughter, Mae Whitman wears a green ladysuit with a fabulous “I’m With Lorelai” Rachel Antonoff T-shirt. And don’t worry as there will be an “I’m With Rory” version available soon. Can I petition for an “I’m With Emily” tee? Please and thank you.
And to keep you tide over until Friday here is the newest trailer and once again I’m getting all teary at everything Richard.
So grab and coffee and all the snack foods ready for this marathon.
Update! “I’m with Lorelai/Rort” Rachel Antonoff T-shirts are now on sale. A perfect gift for the Gilmore Girls fan in your life or a present to yourself.
