Out of the Box: Look of the Week

24 Mar

Spring is in the air (kinda) and there are a lot of great outfit ideas for transitional seasons thing including chunky cardigans and sweaters. It is also PaleyFest and this means panel attire! Always one of my favorite categories as it is open for interpretation and there tends to be some fun looks.

There’s also some sparkle and a great magazine cover from Allure.Kicking things casual with TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Yara Shahidi on her way into Jimmy Kimmel Live! Mustard yellow cardigans along with all things stripes is my big clothing catnip so this look is instant heart eyes and coveting.

And here is Shahidi on Kimmel switching out mustard for Marni ruffles and talking college applications including what this means for her character on Black-ish.Kiernan Shipka in stripes is an instant hit (see earlier remark) at a screening of The Blackcoat’s Daughter and this tiger emblazoned Gucci sweater is super cute. This whole look is playful including pairing bold socks with strappy shoes and it works because we have seen on numerous occasions that Shipka likes to have fun with fashion.

On this week’s Feud, Shipka gave good bad actor acting as well as showing she is her (former onscreen) mother’s daughter in the manner in which she smokes.Tatiana Maslany looks great on a super fancy red carpet (see the Emmys), but where she really crushes it is at events like SDCCSXSW and heading into talk shows where she can add some laid back flair into proceedings. The same can be said for PaleyFest and at the Orphan Black panel she mixed stripes and ruffles with metallic sneakers.

One of the first things I saw this morning was an Instagram story showing Tatiana Maslany reacting to co-star Kristian Bruun wearing Snapchat Spectacles (there’s a lot of cross branding in this sentence) and it is delightful.

Don't think we forgot that it's #NationalPuppyDay.

Keeping up the delightful theme at this Orphan Black panel with Tatiana Maslany and Evelyne Brochu; plus a good mix of black and white ensembles with Maslany wearing a suede/leather bomber jacket over her ruffled dress.More fun PaleyFest outfits and at the Walking Dead panel Lauren Cohan delivers on the high-waisted pants trend paired with a mix of stripes. The flash of red with both pumps and lipstick is a fabulous touch. At the Empire Awards, Ella Purnell gives great season transition awards wear in a different take on florals in a long-sleeved Chanel mini-dress with some fabulous Jimmy Choo sandals; chunky heels are in.If you’re playing the villain in the new Power Rangers movie then this super sparkly Zuhair Murad jumpsuit is exactly the way to go and once again Elizabeth Banks knows how to match her outfit to the film she is promoting (see The Hunger Games for more).Allure magazine shows how to do a diversity issue cover and this is a beautiful shot featuring models Dilone, Imaan Hammam and Aamito Lagum. Fashion magazines have not always had a good track record with diverse cover stars, but on the whole they did improve last year and this is a good sign that they are listening to readers and the very valid criticism being leveled at them.

Over at Lainey Gossip writer Kathleen Newman-Bremang goes in depth about colorism and this issue of Allure.
