This has been a much quieter week on the style front than the last bumper “Out of the Box” and this makes sense as yesterday was Thanksgiving; if you were celebrating then I hope you had a fabulous one! Also, Happy Gilmore Girls Day! This is pretty much what I plan on doing today. In all things Gilmore and style here is my rundown of the best of the premiere red carpet and I also took a look at the fashion of the early ’00s through the 2016 lens.
On the menu this week we have very cute premiere dresses and a whole eclectic mix of events. Plus roundtable season is back! At the London premiere of Allied, Lizzy Caplan wears an Elie Saab that is not only the ideal amount of sheer but also gives off great polka dot and red lipstick. Pretty much perfect.Yara Shahidi has become a bit of an “Out of the Box” fixture and part of this is down to her versatile style; at the Marie Claire Young Women’s Honors she goes for fresh and funky in Tadashi Shoji giving off some fun floral vibes with a spirally twist.
Plus a bonus fantastic selfie from the night with a super sleek bobbed Gina Rodriguez.
The first major awards nominations came out this week and the Independent Spirit Awards is always a favorite. They tend to skew different to all the other major awards on account of the whole indie aspect (of course there is overlap) and they always deliver on the red carpet style front. Jenny Slate and Edgar Ramirez were on hand to announce the nominations and are giving good presenter style; not too fancy, not too casual. Also bold pink shoes are always welcome.
For the full list of nominations (and pretty much a list of films I want to see) head here.This week President Obama presented 21 Americans with the Presidential Medal of Freedom; one of the recipients was Ellen DeGeneres and it is hard to watch this clip without getting chocked up and teary as both Ellen and Barack Obama did. And it really is “easy to forget now just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out on the most public of stages 20 years ago.”
This photo of the pair is a delight and Ellen as always is crushing the ladysuit game and gives such good pattern clashing.
Here is a full look at this fabulous burgundy plaid suit as Ellen waits to get in to the White House.
Roundtable season is here! And we all know how I feel about this (if you don’t then know I went full klaxon on Twitter when THR released who the group was). Amy Adams pretty much has a reserved seat at this table as this is now her fifth roundtable over the last seven years showing just how strong her presence is at every award season. I adore her so I am all good with this. Somehow she also gets the worst outfit. And in fun THR roundtable stats; three of these women (Adams, Bening and Portman) all featured on the inaugural cover back in 2010.
They’ve gone for the dark ensembles to give off the serious vibe, which is one of the go to THR roundtable editorial staples with Emma Stone and Naomie Harris taking best dressed and Annette Bening getting best lipstick. As with the TV roundtable series the movie ones will air on SundanceTV, but you can read the transcript and watch the videos at The Hollywood Reporter.
Now I’m going to get back to Gilmore Girls and have a fantastic rest of your weekend!
