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!Regular (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.”Also 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. From one of my favorite red carpet trends to another and Mandy Moore’s going full caped and plunging drama in Naeem Khan.This 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.Going classic crimson siren in Rodarte and last year’s Best Actress winner Brie Larson also has the red lipstick of my dreams.Now 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.Award 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.
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.Oh, hello.
Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal’s friendship is one for the ages and for the swoons.Stranger Things kids keep on with their dressing better than a lot of their adult counterparts aka the Jacob Tremblay award.
They 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!
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about IRL besties Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps with an appreciation post which has been years in the making. This award season is really delivering on coverage of this friendship and Michelle Williams continues to bring the best date to events like these.
The 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards followed this pattern and because Busy Philipps is such a prolific Instagrammer this means we also get some A+ behind the scenes action including their preferred paired shot (see below) and an Insta story, which will sadly soon disappear. The latter includes the toilet shot, sushi and Michelle Williams re-piercing Philipps’ ear post awards.
They both look great here in two very different takes of the big floral trend of the evening with Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton (of course) and Busy Philipps in a striking red Martha Medeiros gown.
Giving great selfie bathroom pose and they look cool as fuck. Busy’s pink lipstick really pops here too.
But I think this is my favorite shot of them from the red carpet.
In bonus reunion news and this caption is giving me a lot of feelings. Now I want to go rewatch “Kim Kelly is My Friend.”
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.
