Welcome to this week’s edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes and it is a mixture of more awards shenanigans mixed in with set antics.
Mark Ruffalo couldn’t attend the SAG awards but I applaud his choice of location and pajamas upon hearing the news he had won for The Normal Heart. I love red carpet fashion (as you can probably tell) and yet I would love to see a bed wear approach more often.
Abbie’s boot collection on Sleepy Hollow is a sight to behold and envy.
Reminding everyone to watch the show by sharing this very cute photo of the Girls ladies is Allison Williams. This doesn’t reflect the emotional state of the characters at the moment, but maybe by the end of the season at least one of them will feel either professionally or personally fulfilled. Maybe.
I don’t think there’s much to add to Pedro Pascal’s already perfect caption.
Another amazing pair from the SAG awards looking foxy as hell.
Dispatches from Sundance (or returning from) and I am strongly feeling Mindy’s look. Oh and here is the amazing panel they both took part in.
The selfie that we didn’t get to see on this week’s Looking in all its glory thanks to Frankie J. Alvarez. I would like a look at all the different versions please.
It is a quiet week on TV Instagram what with it being Thanksgiving tomorrow and so we are bringing you this a day earlier with a twist. The twist being there are only a few photos, they are not from a TV set and it is only one person’s account.
Diane Kruger has quickly become an Instagram favorite here at TV Ate My Wardrobe thanks to an array of cat, fashion and Pacey photos. Plus – and this is going to sound like I’m speaking direct from US Weekly – she seems pretty normal for an actress who has been modeling since she was 16 and is the face of Chanel’s skincare range. There is a goofy charm to her posts and a lack of vanity that is unexpected for someone in this profession.
Such as this ‘post crying all day for a film’ shot:
Joshua Jackson in a suit:
And another adorable selfie to round things off nicely:
Along with Mindy Kaling, this Instagram account gets bestowed with the ‘gift that keeps on giving’ title.
This isn’t Leftovers casting news for season 2 of and yet Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen make pretty convincing members of the Guilty Remnant for Halloween. Okay it’s not the hardest costume to make – white clothes, Sharpie, paper, cigarettes and a whole lot of soul sucking platitudes- but I think Patti would be impressed with their getup and disdainful looks. The glasses and disheveled hair really ties the whole thing together and so far this is my favorite celeb Halloween attire so far (Taylor’s Pegacorn is a close second).
Welcome once again to Behind the Insta-Scenes! A new feature offering a roundup of the best behind the scenes photos posted on Instagram from a variety of TV show and personal accounts from the people who are on them. This includes anything from future episode sneak peeks, what’s airing this week, flashing back to the past and general on set (and sometimes off set) antics.
The inaugural Behind the Insta-Scenes post was an all comedy affair and we’ve mixed it up with a couple of shots from some more dramatic shows, plus a directorial debut and this week a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite joined Instagram which is cause for celebration.
Play guess The Good Wife plot from Alan Cumming’s shot of co-star Julianna Margulies wearing an apron and latex gloves while sitting on a tiny plastic chair.
This one from Nicole Beharie seems more clear cut and I don’t think anyone will be too surprised to see snakes on Sleepy Hollow.
Diane Kruger is now on Instagram and she has already delivered on fashion, Pacey and amazing cat photos. The highlight so far is this photo from German themed party Kruger organised for The Bridge crew (oh hey FX please renew this show) after Germany won the World Cup. So adorable.
The second episode of A to Z is on tonight and Ben Feldman’s reminder concentrates on co-star Cristin Milioti; all I can focus on is her amazingly long eyelashes. While I thought the first episode was only okay, I am totally charmed by Feldman and Milioti even if the premise isn’t so promising and so I will definitely keep on watching.
Busy Philipps directed an episode of Cougar Town this week (including her own daughter in the scene above) and she did so in style wearing a vintage JC Penny ’50s dress.
Our weekly installment of Mindy Project set shenanigans has Mindy Kaling learning lines in an Equipment tartan sweatshirt that I really want in my own wardrobe now it is finally cold enough for sweaters.
Welcome to Behind the Insta-Scenes! A new feature offering a roundup of the best behind the scenes photos posted on Instagram from a variety of TV show and personal accounts from the people who are on them. This includes sneak peeks from future episodes, what’s airing this week and flashing back to the past. It’s a comedy heavy first edition including The Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation, The Daily Show and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Starting with the woman whose Instagram we have been pouring over all summer for a multitude of reasons – amazing outfits both on screen and off, plus so much Chris Messina – and the one we refer to as the gift that keeps on giving; Mindy Kaling.
First up a shot from episode 8 including its title “Diary of a Mad Indian Woman” and that phone call must be important considering what is also going on in the shot and is being ignored.
A super cute outfit including a strawberry print top, Chanel purse and red booties (coveting these so hard).
Parks and Recreation is currently shooting its final season so expect plenty of photos from this set. This one is courtesy of Retta and gives me a much needed April Ludgate costuming fix.
More from the Parks and Rec set and Aziz Ansari gifts us this fun looking super swish moment with Retta – the return of Treat Yo’ Self Day?
Lena Dunham is doing the big Not that Kind of Girl book tour at the moment and this includes stopping by The Daily Show and hanging out with former Girls guest star Jessica Williams.
To celebrate the return of Brooklyn Nine-Nine Chelsea Peretti shared this heart filled shot with co-star Stephanie Beatriz. More booties (and slippers) to add to my wish list.
Last week it was Chris Messina in a tux and now Mindy Kaling is sharing a sneak peek on Instagram of Shonda Rhimes on the set of The Mindy Project. It was announced last month that the Scandal/Grey’s Anatomy creator would be making a cameo as herself in a season 3 episode and photo speculation suggests it will involve a trip to Dartmouth. Rhimes not only went to Dartmouth, but also gave the commencement day speech back in June and Mindy Kaling also went to this school (Kaling also got in on the speech action this summer at Harvard).
Pete played by Adam Pally on The Mindy Project also went to this school and he is in this photo along with fellow Dartmouth apparel wearing Ed Weeks (Jeremy) and Ike Barinholtz breaks the trend in an excellent Beastie Boys tee (quite possibly not in costume and on set in a writing capacity). There’s no sign of Kaling and if her character misses out on the opportunity to ask those all important Olivia Pope questions – how does she keep her lounge wear free from red wine stains and popcorn grease? – Mindy Lahiri is going to kick herself.
And because he’s not in the shot above here is some Chris Messina related adorableness from Kaling’s Instagram (like I said before it is the gift that keeps on giving):
The Mindy Project returns in one week (Tuesday, September 16) and for more Mindy Project related stories check out Fantasy Costuming and the Season 3 artwork.
It’s worth repeating that if you are a fan of The Mindy Project you really should be following Mindy Kaling on Instagram as not only do you get a preview of the super cute costumes she will be wearing when season 3 returns in a couple of weeks (Tuesday, September 16), but she also teases future episodes. One such sneak peek comes in the form of two shots Kaling posted from episode 5 (*disclaimer* production order doesn’t always reflect the order they air in) and assumption time suggests they are at a wedding (tuxedos and a photobooth providing those clues).
First up Chris Messina in a tux giving off grumpy looking swoons:
Super sparkly dress with a cute daisy headband (and “dissent in the photobooth”):
While we’re taking a look at Mindy Kaling’s Mindy Project related Instagram shots, here are a couple of outfits I am looking forward to seeing on screen.
Costume designer Salvador Perez custom made this incredible green plaid suit. Totally coveting it all:
