Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 May

 

Ah, May. That time of year when EVERYTHING is going on including the Cannes film festival and TV upfronts. This means plenty of red carpet moments and I would usually break down each network with their own post. Unfortunately (or I guess fortunately) this week I have been stacked with other work (see herehere and there’s more exciting stuff to come) and so it all comes down to “Out of the Box.”

So this is a bumper edition that also includes Emmy FYC events, premieres, the BAFTA TV awards and more. Also continuing the trend of all the color and pattern.I’ve talked on numerous occasions about how thrilled I am when cast members remain friends long after the project has wrapped and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants ladies are a prime example of that. Often popping up on each other’s Instagram posts in a way that doesn’t feel phony or like they’re doing it just for the content boost. Basically it is their “just like us” moment and I never feel this way about Blake Lively.

They all turned out for Amber Tamblyn’s directorial debut Paint it Black and there’s no upstaging here; it isn’t a one black blazer fits all situation and three out of the four have gone this route. Alexis Bledel continues her super hot patterned streak and this whole situation is making me want to rewatch those movies.

Also whoa that I just found out two Twin Peaks links – yeah I’m late to this – as Amber Tamblyn’s dad is Dr Jacoby and Lively’s half-sister is Lana. Michaela Coel’s mother might be new favorite designer and at the BAFTA TV Awards she went mini in this very fun geometric number. Also going short is Michelle Williams at the Wonderstruck Cannes photocall and this is my favorite of her recent Louis Vuitton looks. The shape and pattern are fabulous; it manages to be the most Michelle Williams with a slight edge.

Obligatory bathroom selfie but I'm missing my bff Michelle. 😭❤️🌈

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

It has been too long since our last Michelle/Busy bathroom selfie, but Busy’s Alice + Olivia rainbow frock is a delight.

Sadly, there was no Busy Philipps at the upfronts and NBC are still yet to make a decision on her pilot Sackett Sisters so here is my obligatory #MustSeeSackett shout-out.At the ABC upfront, Kerry Washington gives great color blocking cuteness in Fausto Puglisi and nailing the whole daytime event styling.More ABC darlings and Tracee Ellis Ross also got the red memo wearing Ryan Roche (and styled by our fave Karla Welch). Ross’ TV husband, Anthony Anderson also looks super swish and I still need to catch up on Black-ish, much to my TV watching shame.At the EW upfront party, Yvette Nicole Brown is giving me so much jumpsuit inspiration in polka dot Corey Lynn Calter. Such a fun look and also pockets!

As a big Madewell fan it thrills me to see one of their clutches on the red carpet (because it is nice to see things I can actually afford). A floral explosion at NBC and more Karla Welch stylist delights (see also America Ferrera) with Amy Poehler in Warm NY. It also pleases me immensely that Poehler is wearing a colorful pump with this colorful frock.Double America Ferrera this week and she’s taking a page from her Sisterhood co-star’s book in Saloni.

Ferrera’s current co-star, Ben Feldman looks great – that shirt! – until you get to his shoes. I’m actually okay with sneakers with a suit (especially for a daytime event), but not these sneakers. Confession – I really dislike the bottom of Mandy Moore’s skirt and everything I love about this look is above the knee. The lace is too much and it distracts. However, the top of this DVF ensemble is amazing and ticks so many boxes – collar, pattern – and I am also feeling very emotional about Ron Cephas Jones standing next to Moore.

It wouldn’t be This is Us if I wasn’t getting teary.More florals and this time of the maxi dress variety from Gina Rodriguez in Milly at the CW upfront. What a delight.

It isn’t all flowers and stripes will forever take my heart; Constance Zimmer’s Tracy Reese frock looks like it is from the same collection as Susan Kelechi Watson’s sweater from earlier this year. Perfect panel attire.How much do I want to see Judith Light to guest star on The Good Fight wearing this caped dress? I think you can guess the answer. At the Paley Honors: Celebrating Women In Television event, Judith Light crushes everything, as always.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 Apr

It is that time of year when Emmy related activities are beginning from the Variety “Actors on Actors” series to the most recent FX Upfront screening of American Crime Story. This means a lot of TV stars out and about so along with our usual behind the scenes set antics there is also plenty of promo stuff occurring. Plus a whole array of other events from the week.

6 years ago we were roommates in Brooklyn and now we have tv shows. @ilanusglazer is just the best.

Confession – I still have not caught any Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (I know), but I am still super psyched about this Instagram reveal and it is up there on the former roommate scale with Connie Britton and Lauren Graham.

 

Another amazing group of women and the “Fierce Verse: Feminist as Fuck” event is everything I want from a night of entertainment right down to Amber Tamblyn, Amy Poehler and Carrie Brownstein reading an Entourage script.

Cherishing these Good Wife behind the scenes photos as the end is so close and also looking for clues; is this indicating that Lucca is representing Peter? This is definitely a courtroom scene.

 

Kerry Washington’s Confirmation tour is all about the floral frocks; perfect for spring sunshine (sorry if you are currently experiencing unseasonable snow where you are this week).

 

Another shot of this fabulous Kerry Washington dress (and probably my favorite of the four) as she takes part in Variety’s Actors on Actors; Emmy discussion season is upon us and I am always giddy for these one on one conversations and forthcoming roundtables.

 

Darts are also on the menu as well as actors chatting about actorly things and Rami shines in both the scoring and stripes department.

 

Uzo Aduba is currently performing on London’s West End in The Maids along side Fresh Meat’s Zawe Ashton and Lady Edith herself Laura Carmichael. The trio hit up the Olivier Awards red carpet and do the selfie thing with Stephen Oremus. Lipstick bonus points awarded to Zawe Ashton.

 

Now for a very random pairing with Bill Hader and Marcia Clark on stage with Gil and George.

Best of the 2016 Oscars Red Carpet: Sparkle and Pattern

29 Feb

Welcome to the final hurrah of awards season (well there are also still Vanity Fair after party photos to deal with) and after months of campaigning and many other red carpets the Oscars are here. Now I’m not going to say I was totally disappointed, underwhelmed perhaps as overall the Golden Globes and maybe even the SAGs had more standout dress moments. There was a lot to love this year, but not a whole lot that had that Oscar WOAH. No contenders to the Michelle Williams in yellow Vera Wang from 10 years ago.

There are still plenty of dresses to peruse and welcome to part 1 of our highlights – kicking off with all the sparkly delights.Saoirse RonanSaoirse Ronan delivered the first WOW reaction of the night in emerald Calvin Klein Collection and it is giving me Keira Knightley Atonement dress feelings with a 1970s sequin twist. That is a very good thing.Naomi Watts and Liev SchreiberMore sequins and a gown that looks just as stunning in motion as it does in these posed photos; Naomi Watts is onto a winner in Armani Privé and Liev Schreiber is doing the classic tux thing (for dudes in exciting suits check out the style highlights from the Independent Spirit Awards).Margot RobbiePlunging gold snakeskin for Margot Robbie and this is another dress that is giving off so many 1970s vibes and in not so shocking news I am very much here for this decade’s strong influence.Sandy PowellSound the #LadySuitWatch2016 klaxon and costume designer Sandy Powell (no E! this is not Tilda) does not disappoint in a year when she has been nominated not once, but twice (for Carol and Cinderella – see photos from a Cinderella exhibit here). Amy PoehlerWhen I first saw Amy Poehler in Andrew Gn I snap judgement declared this my favorite ever red carpet look for her and the morning after I still feel the same. Love the embroidery and the drama. Plus a caped sleeve is always going to hit my sweet spot.Alicia VikanderIt has been a season of big hitters for the always fashion forward and adventurous Alicia Vikander so I was a little disappointed with what Louis Vuitton made for her very big night. Don’t get me wrong it is a lovely gown (bubble hem aside), but it’s not the triumphant levels we saw at the SAGs. I feel greedy for wanting more.

I am glad she won (even if it should have been for Ex-Machina) and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she does both on screen and on the red carpet in the not too distant future. Shout-out to the woman in silver sequins in the background as she looks fabulous.Daisy RidleyAnother recent red carpet big hitter and Daisy Ridley crushed the Star Wars press tour on every level. Chanel Couture is a great step although I am not in love with the sheer trim, but Ridley is certainly working the awkward length and gets those all important lipstick points. John Legend and Chrissy TeiganChrissy Teigen posted a photo on Instagram of final Oscar prep which included getting sewn into her dress – standard fancy gown procedure which always has me wondering about trips to the bathroom – and she looks incredible in rose embroidered Marchesa. John Legend as always scrubs up very well.Juliet RylanceAnother incredible embroidered creation and Juliet Rylance’s Temperley London frock gives off a very fresh vibe. Rylance was there with her father Mark Rylance and his Best Supporting Actor speech was one of my favorites from the night. Such grace and humility. Plus that wonderful accent. Now I am also wondering whether we will get any more of The Knick as I have so many hopes for Cornelia.

Stay tuned for part 2 of our Oscar coverage.

New Broad City Season 3 Promo and Interview Magazine Feature

11 Feb

4 and 3 and 2 and 1!

Broad City returns next week (Wednesday, 17 February) and we’ve got our first look at season 3 in this new promo. Plenty of returning faces including Hannibal Buress as Lincoln, Ilana’s mother played by the incredible Susie Essman (I still can’t get over how good this casting is), Kirk Steele himself, Trey (Paul W. Downs) and Ilana’s amazing roommate Jaimé (Arturo Castro).

There’s no sign of Bevers which I’m actually okay with because he only works in the smallest of doses. Cynthia Nixon is also guest starring this season in what looks like a role relating to Hillary Clinton’s appearance that was teased on Instagram a couple of months ago. Some quick observations/costume thoughts from this jam packed promo including how I also mistook the dog hoodies in American Apparel for human ones (my question was who in the hell was small enough to fit in the really small one).

Ilana puts the ear holes to good use and Chris Gethard is back as Ilana’s exasperated boss Derek. Hopefully we will be seeing more of Nicole and her memos this season too.Another wig to add to Ilana’s collection to go with her red wavy number from the season 2 finale therefore satisfying my wig kick until The Americans comes back next month.Taking tips from Diane Lockhart and going for chunky chain accessories does have its drawbacks sometimes.  
Here are a few delightful bestie moments from the new promo of which there are many. I am also coveting Ilana’s phone case (see also her hot dog one).
And you can watch the whole thing below.

To tide you over until next week for all things Abbi and Ilana then Interview Magazine has just the thing for you. Ellen Page interviews the pair and it is clear from the outset that she is a huge fan of the show and she knows her shit about the adventures of Abbi and Ilana. The photo shoot is fun and also reminds me of the “St. Mark’s” episode.Interview Magazine Broad CityThey discuss their path to comedy, Amy Poehler and sexual politics. Plus they share some interesting thoughts about the new season and how writing the show has changed over the last three years:

PAGE: “Season 3 is coming soon, thank the Lord. Is there anything that changed from the process of writing the show?

JACOBSON: This season was without a doubt the most difficult to write. When we were writing season 2, season 1 was still airing, and we really didn’t have a break between editing season 1 and writing season 2. So we were really just in it, not getting any feedback and not even getting our own perspective on the show. For season 3, we had a lot of perspective, and it was very scary and hard, and it took us a little longer to get into it and figure out what we wanted to do. But I feel like we have a better hold on the series. And for us to be writing about ourselves, because it’s not us, it’s a very difficult thing to wrap your mind around sometimes.

GLAZER: Our lives are changing, and the characters also have to change. We were more conscious than ever this season that we were writing a show. It’s a third season, and there will probably be more. And figuring out the direction we want the show to go in, how we see the series ending, has clarified things. This was the hardest season to write, existentially. I feel like we were really DTR’ing [defining the relationship] this season, and that was just existentially heavy. I feel like we got over that hump, and it will be easier now that it’s caught up in our consciousness.”

To read the whole thing and for more photos head to Interview.

Broad City returns Wednesday, February 17 and we will be discussing the show in more detail when it does. I for one am also very excited to get some new stickers and gifs on the Broad City keyboard.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

4 Dec

An eclectic “Out of the Box” this week including Star Wars: The Force Awakens pre-premiere press tour excitement, a variety of events and a series of stunning black and white posed shots.

Lupita Nyong'oA Zac Posen dress that sparkles as if it is a starry sky from a galaxy far away (I’ll see myself out) for Lupita Nyong’o first at Bloomingdale’s ‘Force 4 Fashion’ event on Wednesday followed by an appearance on The Daily Show. The dress is low key elegance that turns into a sparkly light up display and I am so ready for this press tour.

Gwendoline ChristieOne of the ‘Force 4 Fashion’ dresses is this stunning Giles Deacon creation; inspired by Captain Phasma and worn here by Phasma herself, Gwendoline Christie. For more incredible photos and a chat about the making of the gown head to Vanity Fair. I love this photo so much I’ve made it my new phone wallpaper; so much power and poise.

Elisabeth MossA cute and simple Peter Pan collared frock for Elisabeth Moss at the IWC Schaffhausen Rodeo Drive boutique opening; an ideal look that can be dressed up or down for day or night. It maybe also slightly resembles the dress worn by me in my Twitter avatar.

Emmy RossumFeeling festive in an all red Salvatore Ferragamo pleated turtleneck dress is Emmy Rossum (in her second appearance this week) at the Godiva ‘Hot Chocolate for a Cause’ benefit. If this wasn’t December this might be too matchy matchy, but it is perfect for a December event like this.

Amy PoehlerAmy Poehler received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week and did so in style wearing a charming winter floral dress. Amy was joined by a variety of co-stars/collaborators to celebrate including beautiful tropical fish Rashida Jones and she’s also showing off the pattern pretty.

Viola DavisInStyle gets their first cover of 2016 – yes it is already 2016 in magazine world – so right with this fantastic beauty shot of Viola Davis. Inside the issue Davis talks about her own style versus Annalise’s and a very refreshing beauty philosophy – “What’s released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness. I’ve never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I’ve been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith.”

Charlotte Rampling and Isabella RosselliniNow entering the black and white section of this week’s “Out of the Box” with Variety’s Actors on Actors‘ conversations following the same model as their Emmy series. The idea of Charlotte Rampling and Isabella Rossellini sitting down discussing anything is exciting enough and this portrait captures them in all their regal glory. Which is perfect considering they are both acting icons.

Elizabeth Banks and Carey MulliganAnother entry in the Variety ‘Actors on Actors’ series and a shot featuring two more TV Ate My Wardrobe favorites; Elizabeth Banks and Carey Mulligan both make really interesting choices in the their work and style. This is no exception.

Amy SchumerThe new 2016 Pirelli calendar photos have been unveiled including this stunning shot of Amy Schumer taken by Annie Leibovitz. Schumer posted the photo on her Twitter with the accompanying words “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman” getting ahead of the comments. Click on the image for a clearer look.

Sadly the calendar is not available to buy and unless you are in the fashion industry it will be hard to get your hands on one. Guess I’ll be sticking with the Countryfile calendar my dad buys me every year instead.

SerenaHere is the April entry and Serena Williams giving off nothing but strong and beautiful vibes. Head to Elle for more entries including Patti Smith and Tavi Gevinson.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

20 Nov

After last week’s pants and ladysuits affair we are returning to a dress filled “Out of the Box” with plenty of bold color, pattern (SO MANY STRIPES) and statement frocks. The pitter patter of awards campaigning is upon us plus premieres and other end of year events are bringing these sartorial treats.

Krysten RitterHappy Jessica Jones Day! And Krysten Ritter looks phenomenal at the New York premiere in ethereal Zuhair Murad Resort 2016 demonstrating the ideal amount of sheer. I am very excited to start this new Netflix series and I’m sure I will have some thoughts on here in the next week or so (depending on how quickly I burn through it).

Lizzy CaplanAnother floaty white ensemble delight from Lizzy Caplan in Thakoon at the Night Before premiere, which manages to capture festive cheer in a subtle fashion. Plus another lesson in sheer that doesn’t make me sadness sigh.

Teyonah ParrisThe Academy events are here and at the 7th annual Governors Awards on Saturday, Teyonah Parris wore this stripe Pedram Couture beauty. Black and metallic silver are perfect for this time of year and Parris is always on top form on the red carpet.

Brie LarsonBrie Larson keeps it super simple in Calvin Klein and stands out in doing so. I cannot wait to see much more of her on the red carpet this award season. Still very much feeling her reaction to Cate Blanchett in a jumpsuit.

Ava DuVernayAnother flawless block color dress and Ava DuVernay’s blue peplum Elvira Jude is striking, as are the gold pumps which are peeking out the bottom.

Emily BluntEmily Blunt is a TV Ate My Wardrobe fave both on and off screen; she constantly makes interesting choices including this shimmery Marc Jacobs resort frock. Loving the leather collar.

Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington adds to the stripe joy in a matching Saloni top and skirt with thankfully not quite matchy matchy Nicholas Kirkwood chevron pumps at the inaugural WWD/Variety Stylemakers event. The work of Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo was recognized with Washington presenting her with the award and after ditching Scandal this season, I just watched the mid-season finale and those costumes really are everything. This one had it all from the fanciest of frocks to incredible coats and an all important wine cardigan, plus the episode was also really great.

Kirsten DunstNow this is pretty much a dream dress and Kirsten Dunst has been appearing a lot on here recently; I think this Gucci chevron-striped frock might be my favorite as it has a very 70s feel to it without looking like she has just come straight from the set of Fargo.

Elizabeth Banks MockingjayPretty Much the Dream Dress Part 2 with Elizabeth Banks in a colorful sequin stripe Dolce & Gabbana number at the LA Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 premiere and this has festive party written all over it.

Elizabeth BanksDouble Elizabeth Banks this week as I couldn’t resist this Giulietta fun play on the LBD at the VH1 Big in 2015 with Entertainment Weekly Awards.

Aubrey PlazaAnd now a twist on a white sporty style mini dress from Aubrey Plaza paired with stacked strappy heels giving this an overall retro feel.

Abbi, Ilana and AmyI just realized that season 3 of Broad City isn’t too far away (okay slightly further away than expected as yesterday it was announced its return will be February 17 instead of the usual January window) and I definitely don’t need an excuse to post a photo of these amazing ladies.

Attending the Worldwide Orphans Gala (of which Amy Poehler has served as an Ambassador of the Arts since 2013) they struck the balance between casual and fancy with Ilana’s matching crop top and skirt combo working like a charm and I am so here for Abbi’s floral wrap. Amy’s sparkly skirt is also super festive appropriate and this outfit also reminds me of how much I love/agree with Rachel Syme’s recent tights essay (although I would’ve gone with a different color pump).

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

5 Aug

If there was a “Behind the Insta-Scenes” theme this week it would probably be #SquadGoals. A lot of shows are now back to work and getting their promo on as fall season looms, but there are also plenty of vacation shots occurring.

 

Brie Larson joined Instagram last week and this human pyramid of lady greatness is one of her first photo offerings. The only time I’ve been involved in one of these was at Reading Festival about 10 years ago and surprisingly no one was hurt (I am ultimate clumsy). I did see a far messier one at the wedding I attended this weekend, which is what happens at 1 am. Larson also shared this excellent shot from the Jenny Lewis “One of the Guys” video.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is guest starring on the forthcoming season premiere of The Mindy Project as (spoiler alert) Mindy’s husband. Say what?! Well, Mindy is very not pregnant in this party shot (super hot dress BTW) and Sliding Doors is the inspiration for this alt-reality setting. If you read our Felicity discussion posts you will know I love a ‘road not traveled’ exploration. Although interestingly enough I have never seen Sliding Doors the whole way through.

 

Because Mindy Lahiri is most definitely pregnant and wearing a very fetching Salvador Perez orange ensemble while shooting a subway scene. This is only adding to my current craving for orange clothes. Kaling is really great at showing sneak peeks of the amazing costuming and hopefully the premiere date will be announced soon.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

24 Jul

A mixture of red carpet, editorial and candid in this week’s edition of “Out of the Box” with super cute summer frocks, an ideal festive party look and a fancy pants suit.

Amy PoehlerJust one week to go before Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is unleashed on Netflix and Amy Poehler’s colorful graphic block ensemble coupled with pink pumps is a treat. And now I’m wondering if her clutch has “Please” on the other side as it matches the font of her book.

Cara DelevingneCara Delevingne model star power means that pretty everything she has worn on the Paper Town promo tour has looked great because she sells it, even if at the same time one of my not so famous eyebrows has been slightly raised. Sparkly long sleeve Saint Laurent may seem more like a dress to save for all those holiday parties come December, but Cara sure as hell looks like she could go dancing at Studio 54 no matter what the season or that it is now a Broadway venue.

Rachel McAdamsA really simple and elegant black Self-Portrait dress for Rachel McAdams at the Southpaw New York premiere and even though it isn’t quite #ladysuitwatch2015 wow, it is still a really great choice. It does resemble an off the shoulder version of the dress she is wearing in the next True Detective and the screen lights up whenever she is on. Basically I want this season to just be McAdams looking for clues with Tim Riggins with a side order of Colin Farrell.

Emmy RossumWearing what is pretty much the ideal summer in the city outfit (would also work for the countryside, maybe beach-adjacent) and Emmy Rossum’s floral frock is delightful.

Michael B Jordan VogueSticking with florals and switching it up as dude attire with Michael B. Jordan crushing it in the August issue of Vogue. Jordan’s red carpet style is never dull as he embraces color and pattern so this Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria is perfect for his bold sartorial choices.

Plenty of casts from fall shows have returned to set for their new seasons so while we have to wait until September to see the fruits of their labor, it is maybe time to infer things from the behind the scenes sneak peeks. Plus reunions, cute outfits and TV watching faces.

 

Belfast airport is the place to spot Game of Thrones cast members as production of season 6 begins and sadly the wait for viewers is going to be a little longer than fall. Daenerys has been reunited with Missandei by a nice selection of mugs and it is no big surprise seeing Emilia Clarke and Nathalie Emmanuel heading back even if their characters are currently separated. All eyes are on another person who happened to make his way to Belfast.

Always good to have @robbieamell & The Victor Garber around. #TheFlashSeason2

Robbie Amell (who has just be cast in the new X-Files revival along with Lauren Ambrose!) and Victor Garber are back on the set of The Flash, but it’s Grant Gustin’s hoodie over his new Flash suit that I am distracted by. Maybe Barry should rock this look.

We're back. It's dark in here. #Arrow

Props galore on Arrow including Felicity Smoak’s glasses, some nude pumps and what looks like some kind of weapon. What could this all mean?

 

In less vague costume news Bellamy Young shows off the mostly colorful Manolo Blahnik heels with a dash of Kate Spade during a ball gown fitting with Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo. Fancy pants party scenes are a favorite.

Puppies! Continuing to look like a very happy place to work is the Orange is the New Black set and it was a good week for the Netflix show as they received four Emmy nominations including Best Drama Series.

This is very exciting and an appropriately mysterious shot from Rhys Darby on the set of The X-Files.

On the X Files set with Kumail Nanjiani. Being on this show left us both a bit giddy. #xfiles #fanboys

Where he also got to hang out with Kumail Nanjiani and I am thrilled Nanjiani is going to be in an episode. If you haven’t listened to his podcast The X-Files Files and you’re currently rewatching before the revival then I definitely recommend you do.

I mean….

Bad form at this end as I didn’t know Joshua Jackson was on Instagram (in my defense he hasn’t posted that much before this week and I am far too distracted by Diane Kruger’s excellent feed). He’s making me long for a beach trip as a result of showing off the beautiful locations they use on The Affair. There is also a shot of something a bit more intimate that he has to wear on this show.
