Award season and the Golden Globes are not the only place for super stylish outfits this month/week as the 2017 winter TCA press tour is fully underway. The really great thing about this occurring during award season is getting to see outfits that are more like the things I would actually wear. Don’t get me wrong; I love the grand and opulent gowns that we get to see on the red carpet at this time of year, but it is also fun to mix things up. See also why I cannot wait for all the knitwear and coats from Sundance.
There are patterns aplenty and this is one trend that was lacking at the Golden Globes, but because of the whole panel element there isn’t always standing shots so some outfits don’t get their full moment to shine.The whole TGIT block got pushed back a week, but we have some sartorial delights from the cast of Scandal with Kerry Washington looking stunning in a floral Prabal Gurung frock and super cute purple ribbon Gianvito Rossi shoes.
Bellamy Young is also crushing it in patterns with leopard print really making a comeback (see also Keri Russell at the Globes) and pairing this bold skirt with a red short sleeve sweater adds a fiery elegance to the whole look.After The Good Wife ended in disappointment I was pretty sure I didn’t need any more from this world, but it turns out it was maybe just Alicia Florrick’s story that I was done with as with every promo and interview about this spinoff my excitement levels grow.
Plus more Diane (and a Diane who is allowed to swear) is everything I need right now. Same goes for Cush Jumbo and it will be good to see the super stylish Lucca Quinn step out from her ‘get-a-grip’ friend role.
Also this Carolina Herrera pink dress is super cute and Jumbo looks amazing both on the show in costume Daniel Lawson’s choices and IRL.And the full Good Fight cast with the creators. I am so ready. Sometimes an abstract print is what you need as Condola Rashad from Billions is demonstrating; it is like palm trees meets Pollack. At The Path session Michelle Monaghan is several levels of mesmerizing in this Mary Katrantzou frock delivering on both pattern and sparkle.
Dramatic shoulders at the Twin Peaks revival panel and Mädchen Amick delivers in La Petite Robe by Chiara Boni with bonus red lip. Confession time – I have still not watched Twin Peaks even though I got the DVD two Christmases ago and I am hanging my head in so much shame. This will be rectified by Sunday, May 21 when it returns to TV. April is going to be a great TV month with the last season of The Leftovers and the return of iZombie on April 4. And this is one good looking and super stylish cast with A+ suit choices and a fabulous Yigal Azrouel frock for Rose McIver. I would also love to know what point she is making here.Another confession – I have not read The Handmaid’s Tale, but I did buy it this week and it is next on my To Read pile after I am done with the short story detective anthology I’m reading right now. It is a book I am of course aware of and that it is very timely despite coming out over thirty years ago.
The cast is also incredible and this shot of Samira Wiley and Elisabeth Moss is delightful.Switching from pants to a dress and on the same Hulu day Elisabeth Moss gives me collar and color envy in this fabulous Ulyana Sergeenko frock. It was also announced on Saturday that Alexis Bledel is in The Handmaid’s Tale and hopefully she will be better received in this than Rory Gilmore’s writing career in the Gilmore Girl’s revival.
Great dress and I’m so happy Bledel’s shoe/manicure choice is summer when her dress is winter. Got to mix those seasons.Sometimes a black jumpsuit does the trick as Yvonne Strahovski demonstrates.Tara Lynne Barr is here to remind me that I still need to finish watching the last season of Casual and also that red boots are fabulous. Another good example of an outfit I would actually wear.As with Yvonne Strahovski’s black jumpsuit, Ari Graynor goes classic in a black sweater and pencil skirt (further research on Twitter revealed this wasn’t a sweater dress like I hoped it might be) as she talks “I’m Dying Up Here.”Conor Leslie of new Fox show Shots Fired delivers on winter botanicals and this dress skirts the right side of sheer (yeah there is one), but really it is her lipstick that is giving me so much life right now. Much to my joy Leighton Meester is returning to TV in March for Fox’s time travel comedy Making History and in jumpsuit news I am enjoying the turtleneck twist combined with the gold studs; this feels very business but you can also go to the club after.
