The glitzy awards season extravaganza dominated the weekend with Friday’s NAACP Image awards, followed by pre-BAFTA parties on Saturday (we will have a separate BAFTA show post), the DGA awards and the Grammys. One big trend is a personal favorite and ultimate clothing wish list item; the lady tux.
Anna Kendrick slays in a Band of Outsiders lady tux (sans shirt) and she keeps it simple pairing it with black stilettos. This is a super chic and sexy take on menswear and while my dream version looks more like Tina Fey at the Golden Globes (mostly because I fear the falling out) Kendrick is easily one of the best dressed stars over this red carpet heavy weekend.
Danielle Haim is another suit wearing vision in Stella McCartney and making up for the crochet Chloé ensemble – I know I love 70s fashion but eh not feeling this – Este is wearing. Este does get the all important bonus red lipstick points and at least they aren’t all wearing very similar outfits. The monochromatic balance in this group shot is working like a charm.
Showing how a lady tux can cause a stir is January Jones in Sandro at the DGA Awards; it’s all in the plunge and I love this spin on menswear. Oh hey Bill Murray looking delightful and like he’s come straight from a Wes Anderson movie set.
Pre-BAFTA party sparkles for Reese Witherspoon and I’m definitely into the bell shaped sleeves which elevate this from being just another cute shimmery mini dress.
Pockets! Felicity Jones has done many of these events in the past few months and I think it is fine to say she is looking rather tired by now. Still amazing, but tired at the BAFTA nominee pre-party. And this is why this Christian Dior Couture dress is ideal because it is simple chic and it also plays on the tuxedo; by now you know how much I like this style.
A sport filled weekend with the Australian Open tennis finals and the Super Bowl so while there isn’t any new TV to talk about there are a few highlights of the style and just general ‘what?! amazing!’ I want to mention. Somewhere along the way this took on a bit of a Broad City theme which is on point seeing as I wore my super soft (it really s the softest) Broad City tee this weekend.
First up the moment during the Super Bowl Katy Perry halftime show that looked like we were all taking a collective post-dental surgery trip a la Abbi on last week’s incredible episode of Broad City “Wisdom Teeth” when the dancing sharks appeared.
Bingo Bronson has got a couple of new pals to hangout in Whole Foods with and cause mischief.
Just leaving this here for all the joy reasons.
Despite the news leaking prior to the Super Bowl that Missy Elliott would be joining Katy Perry at some point during the halftime show; her entrance and those opening beats of “Get Ur Freak On” is still an all the prayer hands emoji moment, surprise or not. The less said about Katy Perry’s awkward dancing during this section the better. However, crazy impressed with Perry’s jumping in stacked heels that was immediately not followed by falling over and breaking her ankle during the Lenny Kravitz section of the performance.
The Tonight Show aired a live Super Bowl special last night including another in the series of lip sync battles with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart joining Jimmy Fallon. Normally it is the special guests that take the crown but Jimmy Fallon has a surprise up his sleeve that would make Abbi from Broad City very happy indeed.
Unnecessary outrage is an internet staple and one of this week’s biggest non-controversy controversies involved Kim Sears and her apparent potty mouth; saying the word fuck and getting caught on camera is uncouth or something like that. Bit of backstory Kim Sears is an artist who is best known for being tennis player Andy Murray’s fiance and column inches about her have in the past been obsessed with when Murray would finally pop the question (now the they have turned their attention to the wedding and babies of course), her amazing hair (it is amazing) and her courtside style (also amazing). So when Kim let out the odd swear people were SHOCKED. Which, urgh. Kim’s choice of Alexander Wang sweatshirt for yesterday’s final (which Murray sadly lost) was the real winner yesterday and Sears gets all the DGAF points. And yes her hair does look fantastic.
