Best of the 2017 Winter TCA Panel and Party Style (So Far)

12 Jan

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.kerry-washington-and-bellamy-youngThe 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.cush-jumboAfter 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.the-good-fightAnd the full Good Fight cast with the creators. I am so ready. condola-rashadSometimes an abstract print is what you need as Condola Rashad from Billions is demonstrating; it is like palm trees meets Pollack. michelle-monaghanAt The Path session Michelle Monaghan is several levels of mesmerizing in this Mary Katrantzou frock delivering on both pattern and sparkle.

madchen-amickDramatic 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. izombieApril 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.samira-wiley-and-elisabeth-mossAnother 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.elisabeth-mossSwitching 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. alexis-bledelIt 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.yvonne-strahovskiSometimes a black jumpsuit does the trick as Yvonne Strahovski demonstrates.tara-lynne-barrTara 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.ari-graynorAs 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-leslieConor 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. leighton-meester-tcaMuch 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.

Jenny Slate Covers Bust Magazine and Discusses New FX Pilot

28 Jul

The last four Bust covers have featured TV Ate My Wardrobe faves Gillian JacobsAbbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Ellie Kemper and most recently, Laverne Cox. This is a lot of excellent TV ladies and it feels like the editorial department at Bust are pretty much reaching into my brain at this point. Especially when factoring in the new Fall Preview cover star; the incredible and amazing Jenny Slate.

IMG_1774When it was announced that FX was shooting a pilot with the team that delivered the devastating, heart smooshing and hilarious Obvious Child I declared it my new favorite show and then they cast Ari Graynor opposite Slate pretty much guaranteeing this title.

In the new issue of Bust (available on both digital and physical newsstands) Slate discusses this still untitled show saying “It’s just the pilot so maybe no one will ever see it, but I have really high hopes.” Me too Jenny. Me too. A show about “friend love” and “female partnerships” instantly aroused my attention and as a woman in her early 30s this part of Slate’s description really resonates with me:

“There are a lot of shows about women in their early-and-mid 20s trying to figure it out and be wild. That’s wonderful, but I think for more small-minded people, they start to think of that as the ‘authentic woman’ – the woman with no boundaries, who will pee in front of other women – and it just becomes over-simplified. That’s just not enough. I’m not that woman anymore. Gillian [Robespierre] and Liz [Holm] aren’t that woman. We’re all older now. What about the examination of a woman who is in her early 30s who is having some success and starting to understand what she wants out of a partnership romantically and sexually. Is a woman who suddenly has a little bit more power not worth a look? Is she passed over or done? I am a 33-year old woman. I am married and have a nice momentum in my career and I find that I am faced with more questions than ever before. I just approach them differently, with new wisdom.”

It is a long quote, but a really interesting discussion point because while shows like The Mindy Project and New Girl explore a lot of these aspects there is always room for different takes. Plus both those shows are very much a single-cam network formula (it will be interesting to see how/if Mindy changes now it is on Hulu) and have different restrictions. I know You’re the Worst is being paired with The League when it returns September 9, but now I want to see a comedy block of Slate’s new show and You’re the Worst.

The rest of the interview is just as great with Slate discussing her long friendship with Gabe Liedman, plans for Marcel the Shell and her journey to becoming a comedy queen. The editorial covers summertime fashion with jorts and gingham rompers, sliding into fall with a really fabulous 70s inspired Chloe jumpsuit.

An accurate representation of how excited I am for this show. Don’t let me down FX.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

29 Apr

You’re the Worst doesn’t have a return date yet (*sigh*) however the cast are back on set and they are already gifting us with plenty of photos. More like you’re the best (I will see myself out). Also included in this week’s Instagram round-up is my new favorite show, an unexpected crossover idea, Mad Men feels and getting ready for wrestling.

 

Aya Cash calls it like she sees it when it comes to her co-stars dissatisfaction at this adorable photo. Yes I am still coveting Cash’s Alice + Olivia dress that she wore to the FX event.

Will Edgar still harbor his “This Woman’s Work” infused crush on Lindsay? All signs point to yes, especially if she is wearing this super cute strapless dress.

 

Adding to the forever always Peggy Olson worship is this photo courtesy of Elisabeth Moss from the set of Mad Men. Forever wincing at what Vincent Kartheiser went through to get the perfect Pete Campbell hairline.

 

Dramatic eye makeup for Yael Grobglas as she gets ready for Petra as The Cold Warrior on Jane the Virgin.

 

Without having seen a single episode I’m already calling the untitled Jenny Slate/Ari Graynor FX show from The Obvious Child team my new favorite. T-necks and leather jackets assemble.

 

This organized chaos desk scene looks very familiar and Jessica Williams audacious Effie Trinket inspired outfit is all part of a Daily Show bit skewering CNN’s coverage of the WHCD over Baltimore.

 

The Elementary team are pretty prolific Instagram users, but alas they have shot the final day of season 3 so this will be the last one from awhile (it hasn’t been renewed yet, but it seems likely it will).

 

I just really adore this photo/sentiment/Abbi’s outfit.

 

Crossover potential ahoy! The Scandal team would probably do pretty well in a zombie apocalypse situation particularly the B613 trained folk. It would not be so good for all the beautiful costumes which feature on the show. If they ever get to Washington DC on The Walking Dead they might need a fixer of a different kind.
