Out of the Box: Look of the Week

13 Jan

A super busy week starting with the pre-Golden Globe parties followed by the actual Golden Globes and then all the incredible looks from the winter TCA press tour. Well not quite all the looks as I knew the FX panels that took place after I hit publish would probably include some sartorial highs. And I was right, which is why this week’s “Out of the Box” includes more from TCA. Also this from The Americans panel sounds adorable.

Plus we have post-Golden Globes parties, magazine covers/editorials and some coats to covet.ruth-neggaLeopard print is having a big moment this week and there is nothing I don’t love about Ruth Negga’s look as she heads into Jimmy Kimmel Live! This shows just how elegant animal prints can be and Negga wouldn’t look out of place in Carol wearing this ensemble.

Super stylist Karla Welch is crushing it with her selections for Ruth Negga and I love how unpredictable these choices are. naomie-harrisThis week the walk into Jimmy Kimmel Live! is giving us great coat action and Naomie Harris is going with a classic choice that would look fabulous billowing in the wind on a show like Sherlock or Taboo. Harris brightens things up with a very cute floral dress.carrie-coonFX is pretty much just gathering all my favorite people and putting them in shows with season 3 of Fargo being a very good example of this. Here is Carrie Coon giving great short hair and wearing a fantastic Novis dress that looks as comfy as it does stylish.

Entering behind her is Ewan McGregor (he’s playing twins on Fargo) and this looks like they’re coming out on stage to perform in their very sultry band. I would go to this gig and sway dreamily.mewAlso starring in the new season of Fargo is Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Winstead’s character on BrainDead was an instant TV style queen. Alas that show is no more, but I am glad someone else snapped her up quick. This gold and gunmetal black By Johnny ensemble looks fit for dancing as well as panel talking. Also very thankful for these entrance shots and not just the sitting down variety. katie-findlayContinuing the TCA trend of all the pattern pretty and at the Man Seeking Woman session Katie Findaly goes bright and bold with her A+ shoe and dress choice.kiernan-shipkaI just checked to see how old Kiernan Shipka is because there is so much poise here and yep she just turned 17. And she still remains so much cooler than me. I am so excited to see her on Feud (and the entire cast for this show is exceptional) and she will be playing Bette Davis’s daughter. Here she goes classic in black pants and a white blouse with a formal bollo tie/brooch twist.leighton-meesterLeighton Meester’s second appearance on here this week and at the InStyle Golden Globes after party she goes classic in a white wrap adjacent Galvan dress and to die for Sophie Webster blue pumps. The detail on the heel is bananas (not actually bananas).issa-raeChanging from an amazing Christian Siriano white frock into formal jumpsuit perfection is Issa Rae and this outfit swap makes so much sense. Rae’s award show look is one of our faves, but this custom Juan Carlos Obando jumpsuit looks much better for dancing/drinking/having fun in. And there’s only 50% white to accidentally spill stuff on and not the whole dress. janelle-monaeAlso making the switch from dress to jumpsuit is Janelle Monáe keeping with the black and white theme in Georges Chakra. Plus sequins.diane-krugerKeeping on the sequin theme and Diane Kruger goes all out in purple Nina Ricci and I love it.yara-shahidiEverything about Yara Shahidi’s post-Globes Schiaparelli look is so much fun and such a great mix of textures/color with pink fringed iridescent tulle and gold leather sleeves. And another to add to this week’s amazing coats list.stranger-things-teensWe’ve seen a lot from the super stylish Stranger Things kids, but now for the Stranger Things teens (who are actually in their twenties) giving great surly face. Mini Jean-Ralphio is actually more confused face and his hair has reached new heights. stranger-things-teens-part-2Don’t worry it is not all moodiness here and all is well.zoe-kravitzElle’s Women in TV issue is one of my favorites of the year and they went with Big Little Lies as their cover stars. I am very excited about this mini-series (and it features in my big preview), but it also pretty much means that it is movie stars on the cover. This Zoë Kravitz shot is a stunner and she gives such a good disarming stare.

Inside the issue Vanessa Kirby gives great polka dot ladysuit and confuses me by being blonde (because I’m so used to her Princess Margaret face). solange-interviewInterview Magazine has gifted us with so many great photo shoots and they kick off 2017 with an incredible cover story; Beyoncé interviewing her sister Solange. They cover everything from Solange’s most recent album, influences and their backgrounds. It is such a wonderful and insightful interview because they are sisters with stories like this one from Beyoncé “One of my proudest moments as a sister was when I was able to introduce you to your hero, Nas, and you cried and acted a fool. I was so surprised that Mrs. Too-cool-for-everything was acting a fool.”

The accompanying shoot is fabulous and this can be tagged in great ladysuits – this one is by David Hart – paired with a brown Miu Miu turtleneck.

Best of the 2017 Golden Globes: Black, White, Dudes in Suits and Print

9 Jan

Our final post in the scroll heavy day after the Golden Globes red carpet highlights rundown. There are a lot of really amazing looks and here you will find the best black and white dresses, some suit treats and a bit of bold pattern. For more from our Golden Globe coverage head here and here.issa-raeIssa Rae looks incredible in a long sleeve custom Christian Siriano; this is how you do white to an awards show without coming across bridal. janelle-monaeMullet dresses tend to be an instant no for me, but not in the case of Janelle Monáe who is working her signature black and white palette with aplomb in custom Armani Privé. Texture and material mixing never looked better.rachel-bloomGood news for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend fans as a season renewal was announced yesterday prior to the Golden Globes and nominee Rachel Bloom does black with a floral twist in another custom Christian Siriano.

 

Also hands down (boom) Bloom has the best nail art of the night.zazie-beetzAtlanta won big much to my delight and Zazie Beetz manages to look both super modern and classic in a two-tone Delphine Manivet black gown.jldJulia Louis-Dreyfus is very much an awards staple and she’s got the whole gown thing down; this time going for a simple but striking Georges Chakra black and white number.donald-gloverThe man of the hour and Donald Glover won both Best Actor in a Comedy and his show Atlanta won the big prize too. Glover was the standout guy on the red carpet (h/t our guy stylist fave Ilaria Urbinati) in brown velvet Gucci. This is ’70s inspiration at its best.riz-ahmedAnd now for a classic tux from Riz Ahmed in Dolce and Gabbana.laura-dernThere weren’t a lot of standout prints at the Globes this year, but Laura Dern left her mark in floral Burberry.keri-russell-and-matthew-rhysYou don’t often get leopard print during award season and yet Keri Russell is here to show how to incorporate this style by going a bit Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks (TUSK) in her choice of J. Mendel. The choker is obviously an issue for me because chokers, but I love their whole vibe that they bring to the red carpet. See also the reason I have Mouse Rat stuck in my head.

Best of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards: Sequins and all that Shines

9 Jan

The Golden Globes red carpet highlights started with a few of my favorite things – ladysuits, yellow, capes, IRL besties – and now for a trend that is also on this list and dominated the night; sequins, sparkles and all things metallic.ruth-negga-ggRuth Negga looks like she has been dipped in liquid Louis Vuitton gold and has come to save us from it all.emma-stoneWhen describing this Valentino dress Golden Globe winner Emma Stone mentioned that it is pink and has stars on it. Two very correct observations and a dream of a gown. kristen-bellSequins, sequins, sequins in all colors and styles with Kristen Bell giving great drama (and sternum) in black Jenny Packham.amy-adamsAmy Adams looks like she might be ready to go into a very stylish battle in a strapless Tom Ford. So many Cersei feelings (if Cersei ever chose to switch to sequins).claire-foyI don’t quite love this Claire Foy Erdem gown as much as I love her pre-party look, but is super pretty and I’m not even mad she beat Keri Russell. Well not a whole lot mad as I think she’s great in The Crown.regina-kingRegina King is a sparkling dream in Romona Keveza and this strapless dress might be one the best things she has worn on the red carpet.naomie-harrisNaomie Harris looks like she has come from the future to team up with Ruth Negga in a futuristic looking Armani Privé gown.priyanka-chopraFrom silver to gold and Priyanka Chopra never fails to bring it; the Golden Globes is no exception and this Ralph Lauren gown is a stunner.sarah-paulson-and-amanda-peetMore IRL BFF goals with Sarah Paulson shining in Marc Jacobs gold as she picked up yet another well deserved award for her incredible Marcia Clark performance.

Amanda Peet also looks fabulous here and I’m still sad Togetherness is no more. And that my DVD of Igby Goes Down is missing.felicity-huffmannNow for something different and Felicity Huffman’s white and gold George Chakra is a fabulous take on formal jumpsuits.gina-rodriguezA getting ready shot of Gina Rodriguez from Instagram had Twitter all a fluster for good reason:

 

And this Naeem Khan gown looks perfect for twirling and shimmying in at the after parties.thandie-newtonSometimes sequins are here to add a touch of drama and in the case of Thandie Newton they look like flames at the bottom of her Monse gown.sterling-k-brown

Sterling K. Brown didn’t win much to my surprise/sadness, but he looks cool as fuck here and his wife Ryan Michelle Bathe is stunning in David Meister.

Sterling K. Brown shared this pre-Globes stunner of photo on Instagram and I am so happy we get to see these getting ready shots. trace-lysetteTrace Lysette is giving me so many art deco vibes in this beautiful Charbel Zoe gown; ready to party with F. Scott Fitzgerald. judith-lightQueen Judith Light, always.tracee-ellis-ross-and-anna-chlumskyThis photo is pure magic and the perfect way to end this post.

Best of the 2017 Golden Globes: Ladysuits, Best Besties, Capes and Color

9 Jan

Welcome to the TV Ate My Wardrobe coverage of the Golden Globes red carpet; there will be three posts covering the best looks of the night in which a whole lot of my favorite trends took center stage.

Let’s get to it!erwRegular (and probably not so regular) readers will know how much I love a ladysuit and when ladysuit queen Evan Rachel Wood hit the red carpet in custom Altuzarra my jaw dropped. Wood is serving up so much Marlene Dietrich perfection and this is what she said about the tux choice:

“I’ve been to the Globes six times. I’ve worn a dress every time. And I love dresses, I’m not trying to protest dress. But I want to make sure that young girls and women know they aren’t a requirement and that you don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to. To just be yourself because your worth is more than that.”kathryn-hahnAlso going for a ladysuit is Kathryn Hahn and if I could just put a flames emoji here then I would because this is smoking hot. mandy-mooreFrom one of my favorite red carpet trends to another and Mandy Moore’s going full caped and plunging drama in Naeem Khan.viola-davisThis post could pretty much be an updated rendition of “My Favorite Things” and Viola Davis once again crushed both the dress and speech (twice!) game.brie-larsonGoing classic crimson siren in Rodarte and last year’s Best Actress winner Brie Larson also has the red lipstick of my dreams.caitriona-balfeNow for something different and Caitriona Balfe once again shows that she looks stunning in every kind of frock including this difficult to pull off navy and orange Delpozo.busy-philipps-and-michelle-williamsAward season when Michelle Williams is nominated gives us a window into TV Ate My Wardrobe’s fave IRL besties and the Golden Globes/Busy Philipps’ Instagram did not disappoint.

Pt. 1. OR WE HAVENT EATEN CARBS IN AT LEADT A WEEK.

Dress wise and I am so here for everything about Busy’s Stella McCartney florals. Less so with Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton and I would get rid of the ribbon choker (the one major ’90s fashion trend that needs to go away) and cut off the sleeves.diego-luna-and-ggbOh, hello.

Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal’s friendship is one for the ages and for the swoons.stranger-thingsStranger Things kids keep on with their dressing better than a lot of their adult counterparts aka the Jacob Tremblay award.

maisie-and-sophieThey haven’t shared the Game of Thrones screen since season 1, but Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner thankfully have all this red carpet time together so we can see just how important they are. Including adjusting Maisie’s amazing yellow Ong Oaj Pairam frock and hiding most of Sophie’s sheer nightmare.

Stay tuned for more from the Golden Globes!
