Out of the Box: Look of the Week

31 Mar

On the “Out of the Box” menu this week we have more PaleyFest panels, lots of floral inspiration for spring, a good dollop of shimmer and a reunion that’s making me feel a lot of things.By now you will probably know how I feel about Evan Rachel Wood in a ladysuit – strongly positive – and this Cavalli is no different. The ruffled shirt is a fun twist and this overall vibe is a killer look that never gets old.Erdem florals for Thandie Newton mixing delightful levels of print (she put a bird on it) with a good level of shimmer and sparkle. This is a hard level of whimsy to work without falling into the too twee trap, but Newton is doing just that. Excellent PaleyFest panel attire from my fave Westworld robots.More botanicals and both Kirsten Dunst and Charlize Theron are in Gucci at CinemaCon; they’re different enough prints to not feel like they’re matching and yet there’s an element of coordinating (especially when you factor in the strappy heels). Kirsten Dunst also went to a Britney show this week and this Instagram post is everything. This week’s column includes a whole lot of the TV Ate My Wardrobe style ultimates and Jessica Chastain is ticking the rocks a lot of polka dots box in Givenchy with added ruffles. The real bonus here is the yellow pumps, which are fabulous.Uzo Aduba gives great black and white ensemble at the 2017 Garden Of Laughs Comedy Benefit; her clutch is very cute, but I would love to see Jessica Chastain’s yellow pumps with this look instead.A very busy time for Alison Wright at the moment as she’s crushing it (and me in the process) on Feud, making surprise appearances and performing on Broadway. At the Sweat opening night party she looks incredible in a Balmain mini dress and continues to give me so much eyebrow arch envy.Wednesday afternoon involved a whole lot of feelings when Entertainment Weekly unleashed their Buffy the Vampire reunion cover story and this shot of Amber Benson, Alyson Hannigan and Seth Green is too much to handle without taking a moment.

The general styling for this shoot was different variations on black attire and each ensemble did a good job of matching the character they played without falling into any Bad Buffy Outfit traps. #Slay

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 May

Reunions, reminders of how long ago a show left the air and plenty more behind the scenes action in this week’s TV Instagram selection.

 

Still feeling emotional about the end of Mad Men? Elisabeth Moss has you covered with this photo from her final day and it is fitting that her last scene is with Vincent Kartheiser after all their characters have been through together. This also gives me another reason to talk about how much I love Peggy’s costuming as this is a Top 3 ensemble.

 

Yes I love it when onscreen besties also hangout in real life, even more so when it is long after a show has ended and a Buffy reunion like this ticks all those boxes. Especially when they (accidentally) co-ordinate their denims.

 

I have conflicted Dawn feelings (okay they’re not that conflicted, but Georgina Sparks made me appreciate Michelle Trachtenberg in a whole new way), but this shot from “Once More with Feeling” is stunning. And how has it been 12 years since this show ended?! That is not okay.

Continuing the “How many cast members can you fit in one elevator?” selfie series with Scandal. Not quite as crowded as the CW lovefest; might need to get a few more #TGIT representatives in here.

This photo by Eliot Glazer is making me want to go to a dog wedding or at least rewatch “The Matrix” episode of Broad City.

 

At the moment I can’t stop listening to John Mulaney’s “Salt and Pepper Diner” story and while this might be a rather tenuous link I’m going with it.

 

Diane Kruger picks the perfect outfit for her Oxford University visit. Got a whole lot of hat/coat/bag envy right now.

True love is sharing prop pizza on the You’re the Worst set. Continuing the excellent sunglasses trend too.

 

The Jane the Virgin cast also like each other a lot.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Willow’s Very ’90s Halloween Costume

31 Oct

Today we are continuing our look at Halloween episodes of teen shows from the ’90s with Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s season 2 outing. Fashion and TV from this decade is a big source of discussion here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and one of the most representative of this period is Willow’s very un-Willow attire.

Willow Buffy the Vampire SlayerWillow protests that this costume “just isn’t me.” Buffy responds with “And that’s the point. Look, Halloween is the night that not you is you, but not you. Y’know?” Which is Buffy speak for Halloween is the night you get to pretend to be something that you are not. The reason why Willow is dressing from Buffy’s closet is because Buffy wants Willow to get noticed as it’s “the perfect chance for a girl to get sexy and wild with no repercussions.” This isn’t a specific costume per se and Willow isn’t exactly pretending to be Buffy in the same way that Danielle is dressing as Angela in My So-Called Life, instead Buffy is using her clothes as a way to give Willow a new sexy look with Halloween as the excuse.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer BooInstead Willow opts for her original very covered choice and she is clearly not feeling the sexy makeover. This is not the very ’90s aspect of her costume but it does turn Willow into a ghost when Ethan’s spell kicks in and she spends the rest of the episode in her Buffy chosen attire. It’s also a time for Willow to take command of the situation as both Xander and Buffy’s costumes mean they don’t remember anything about who they are.

Willow as a ghost Buffy the Vampire SlayerA super short leather looking mini (with a bonus thigh split), a stomach bearing top and the obligatory choker is why this perfectly represents the latter half of this decade. Dark lipstick, smoky eyes and an up do with the necessary two strands of hair dangling at the front completes the look so if you’re ever wanting an authentic ’90s costume idea this is pretty much it.

This is a big episode in the Buffy verse as it’s the first time we meet Ethan Rayne and get a hint of Giles’ dark past. It’s also the second time that Oz has noticed Willow (the first is in “Inca Mummy Girl” when Willow is dressed as an Eskimo) and he asks to himself in wonder “Who is that girl?” This occurs after the effects of the spell have worn off and Willow has ditched her Boo costume and strides with pride as she finally feels comfortable in her original outfit. While this doesn’t mean that Willow is suddenly going to change her style, this experience of having to lead under pressure means that Willow now has confidence in her abilities and she is a valuable asset to this team. Buffy’s mission to stop Willow from hiding has worked both from a boy perspective with Oz and with her role in the Scoobies. It’s a subversive look at the come as a sexy version of something.

As with Freaks and Geeks and My So-Called Life, Halloween gives Buffy the Vampire Slayer the opportunity to address relationships and the insecurities these characters might be feeling. Plus there is the added bonus of costumes and who doesn’t love a deep and meaningful discussion in fancy dress?
