Out of the Box: Look of the Week

16 Oct

Fashion Week season is over but there are still plenty of sartorial delights on offer this week with striking magazine covers and a whole range of red carpet events.

Taraji EssenceTaraji P. Henson killing it on yet another magazine cover (keep them coming as far as we’re concerned) wearing a stunning Fausto Puglisi dress with ultra high thigh slits. Henson discusses her work ethic with Essence and how her training informs her performance “These kids are thinking they can do reality TV and come and do this craft that I studied, sweated and grinded. People forget it’s a craft because it’s so pop now… Can they make me believe the words coming out of their mouth?” And it must be said that Cookie Lyon is so endearing because of everything Henson brings to this role. 
Brie Larson
Another TV Ate My Wardrobe “Out of the Box” regular gives good magazine cover in this moody shot for Variety and Brie Larson is going to be a big red carpet presence this awards season if early chatter is anything to go by. Reviews for Room and Larson’s performance suggest huge things are afoot much to our joy; I just finished reading Room and I am excited to see Larson’s interpretation of this emotionally challenging role.

Anne Marie DuffTurtleneck tanks and ladysuits for Anne-Marie Duff in this fantastic photoshoot for Interview.

Kiernan ShipkaContinuing her reign as a fashion queen is Kiernan Shipka – and even though I wasn’t a huge fan of her Emmys Dior, it was at least interesting – wearing Bottega Veneta to the Hammer Museum’s Gala in the Garden. Polka dots and pleats perfection.

Cush JumboCush Jumbo is hitting style highs both on The Good Wife as potential new Alicia bestie and partner (fingers crossed) and on the red carpet at the Golden Heart Awards in a beautiful pink Michael Kors frock.

Emily Blunt and Diane KrugerAlso attending this event is Diane Kruger wearing Michael Kors hot off the runway from the new Spring 2016 and as with Kiernan Shipka she is showing how to wear black and blue together (for some reason the color rule of never wearing these two colors together has stuck with me).

Emily Blunt’s mixed textured Michael Kors dress is a fun play on pleated sequins and her black and gold puzzle clutch is just the touch this outfit needs. Now I am picturing Sicario with Blunt and Kruger as Sonya Cross from The Bridge. If that I had been the case I would have liked this movie more.

Lupita and DanaiDanai Gurira isn’t just an incredible actress, she is also a playwright and Lupita Nyong’o is making her off-Broadway debut in the Gurira penned Eclipsed. Both women look stunning on the opening night with Nyong’o dazzling in red Dior and the play has been getting excellent reviews so far. The wish list of stage productions I would like to see gets ever longer.

Best of the 2015 BAFTA Red Carpet

9 Feb

Award season stretches for months and we’ve covered a lot of red carpet events here at TV Ate My Wardrobe; with the Oscars so near it means certain dresses are being saved for the last and biggest hurrah so the BAFTAs tends to suffer. This is not to say the red carpet is awash with blah as there are plenty of style highs from last night’s awards, but you can tell some are saving the wow entrance for two weeks time.

Reese Witherspoon BAFTAReese Witherspoon switches things up from cute and sparkly at the pre-party to this plunging purple sexy Stella McCartney gown.

Monica Bellucci and Lea SeydouxWe’re going to see a lot more of Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux on the red carpet when Spectre comes out at the end of the year and if it is anything like this then we are in for a treat.

Amy AdamsWhile I might be slightly distracted by the mustard coat in the background, Amy Adams is striking in custom white Lanvin. What really makes this look is the beaded detail and tassel belt (which I would not be able to stop twirling).

Julianne MooreI’ve been going back on forth on Julianne Moore’s Tom Ford gown as I love the color and velvet, but my aversion to chokers thanks to 90s flashback horrors is making the collar detail not so appealing. But Moore does look fantastic particularly while clutching her BAFTA so I couldn’t leave her off this list.

Keira KnightleyI love a tea length frock and Keira Knightley’s floral Giambattista Valli is delightful.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw BAFTAAnother sumptuous pastel gown for Gugu Mbatha-Raw this time in Prada and despite the Hathaway boob dart issue this is a beautiful look.

Rosamund PikeRosamund Pike’s award season style has been a bit hit and miss and at the BAFTAs she plays it safe in black Roland Mouret; it’s nothing to go crazy for but she does look good.

Felicity Jones BAFTAA Christian Dior Couture double for Felicity Jones this weekend and while it doesn’t hit the heights of her Golden Globes Dior it captures Jones’ classic and romantic style.

Hayley AtwellThe sheer trend is one I am not too fond of, but when polka dots are featured it makes me more inclined to like it and as presenter attire this is ideal. Continuing to adore all things Hayley Atwell.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne continues his winning streak in another fantastic velvet suit. This time it is a midnight blue Armani and wife Hannah Bagshawe wears an incredible Valentino gown; only a slight hint of the lean.

James McAvoy and Anne Marie DuffWhile Anne-Marie Duff’s gown is a tad bridal (and I need some inspiration in this area so thank you) I just couldn’t resist this super adorable shot of Duff with husband James McAvoy.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

21 Nov

It is a week of very little color from “Out of the Box” but black doesn’t have to mean safe or boring on the red carpet as this roundup demonstrates. The award season tiptoeing continues with contenders upping their style game and here are some of the best looks.

Jennifer AnistonInStyle hosted a screening of Jennifer Aniston’s Cake and she turned up wearing an outfit that steps out of her usual LBD territory embracing the ultimate fall pattern with plaid. This is also a really great coat and while it doesn’t venture too far from her style wheelhouse, this is a cool and relaxed look.

Leighton Meester and Gillian JacobsI heart these two so hard and Life Partners is high on my must see list, plus they both look so happy and super cute at the LA premiere. Leighton Meester does monochrome with a twist once again this time in Cushnie et Ochs and the splash of color with the green clutch and red lipstick works wonders. A J. Mendel navy strapless lace dress with a fitted bodice has Gillian Jacobs continuing down the darker dress route with a twist. Red crimson nail polish and strappy heels are a fun way to finish off this ensemble.

Matthew Goode and Allen LeechThe Imitation Game cast looks just as good in red carpet attire as they do in their code breaking costumesThe Good Wife’s Matthew Goode and soon to be Downton Abbey co-star (for the Christmas special) Allen Leech are both rather dashing all suited and booted at the New York premiere this week.

Charles DanceCharles Dance was also in attendance at this Imitation Game premiere looking cool as fuck. He’s working the polka dot scarf and serving up dapper realness.

James McAvoyIt’s not just award show pre-gaming as the BAFTA Scotland Awards took place on Sunday and James McAvoy took home Best Actor for Filth. He’s another suit wearing standout and his wife Anne-Marie Duff (who is excellent in everything she appears in) is one of the black dress/red lipstick stunners this week. I might have gone for a bolder shoe choice; maybe gold, but it could have come across as too matchy matchy with that fantastic clutch.
