Out of the Box: Look of the Week

3 Feb

The SAG Awards delivered on both speeches and fashion this weekend and on this week’s “Out of the Box” we’ve got a whole lot of great outfits from the Entertainment Weekly pre-SAG party with a dash of the PGA Awards, the beginning of the end for Girls, a new campaign and a very important announcement.yara-shahidi-ewYara Shahidi was our best dressed at the SAG Awards in an incredible striped Naeem Khan frock and at the pre-SAG EW party she went in a very different, but just as fun direction. All baby blues from eye makeup to the abstract print matching Sophie Theallet shirt and pants.kristen-schaalFor all things wacky and delightful look no further than Kristen Schaal and her amazing kitty dress. I love everything about this. Also super cute gold shoes that I would like in my life.malin-akermanMalin Akerman serving up full shoulder drama in metallic striped Zhivago and this is the kind of dress you wear when you want to throw a drink in someone’s face. Or just look cool as fuck.grace-gealey-and-candice-pattonPatterned ladysuit alert with Grace Byers going full plunge in Keti Chkhikvadze and in very cute dress news we have Candice Patton in Tommy Hilfiger. That collar is everything (and now I am looking at dresses on the Tommy Hilfiger website and am very tempted by this).the-crownWhile I very much preferred both Vanessa Kirby and Claire Foy’s SAG ceremony outfits, I also couldn’t pass up this opportunity to post this picture of a much happier (and more alive in some cases) family from The Crown. Lipstick points for Kirby and Foy too.stranger-teensThe Stranger Things cast tends to be split between the kids and the teens when posing for photos; here at the EW party Natalia Dyer instead hangs with her onscreen younger brother and his friends and once again the boys look super swish in their suits. Especially Caleb McLaughlin in bow tie and waistcoat. Dyer’s super floral mini is another very cute Miu Miu and this brand is working like a charm on her.miles-brown-and-caleb-mclaughlinDancing cuties and Stranger Things meets Black-ish. Blue shoes are a must at the pre-SAG party for Caleb McLaughlin and Miles Brown.sag-dancingMore fabulous shoes and moves from the boys at a SAG after party and they’re joined by Janelle Monàe.stranger-dancingAnd now with Samira Wiley and the rest of the Stranger Things kids. Post awards dancing photos are the best.rami-malekThe night before the SAGs Rami Malek went a little more classic in his choice of Dior suit and he also appears to have adopted the signature Eddie Redmayne lean.girls-thrGoing full Friends cast shot as The Hollywood Reporter celebrates Girls with an oral history and a cover featuring the core cast. This is a really well styled shoot and I now have Lost in Translation like questions as I wonder what Adam Driver is whispering into Andrew Rannells’ ear. kenzoKenzo’s new Spring 2017 campaign features Tracee Ellis Ross, Jesse Williams and cellist/singer Kelsey Lu. A short film called “Music is My Mistress” will be released next Thursday (February 9) and if these print ads are any indication it is going to be pretty special.yara-shahidi-ivy-parkAnd in other fantastic campaign news; here is Yara Shahidi for Ivy Park and this oversized sweater/short shorts look is great. Shahidi appeared in Lemonade and re-teaming with Beyoncé for her clothing brand makes so much sense.

 

Also thank you Beyoncé for giving us something to be happy about this week. And I love that her underwear is not matching. Also where can I get that bra?

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

11 Nov

Oh this week and I don’t even know where to begin. It is hard to turn back to the frivolity of picking the best outfits, but here I am with distractions from Gilmore Girls, lots of ladysuits, award show sparkle and magazine cover wonders. In two weeks time the new episodes of Gilmore Girls will hit Netflix and with that Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are going to be doing a whole lot of fan events in a variety of countries. Last night they were in Berlin and Bledel’s super sparkly pleated number is the Christmas party outfit I am coveting hard. Graham meanwhile goes classic in a fabulous LBD.

The Gilmore Girls catch up for me is going well and I only have another 12 episodes to watch; even if both season 6 and 7 are a big step down I cannot wait for these new episodes. The last few days have pretty much been a blur of me binging this final season and I’m looking forward to being able to read all those revival articles I have been saving.julianne-mooreThe Hollywood Film Awards is not one to mark on your calendar, but Julianne Moore made sure we paid attention by wearing this stunning Tom Ford sequin dream.naomie-harrisFirst of the ladysuits this week and at the Hollywood Film Awards, Naomie Harris goes glitz in Gucci. Harris is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite as she tends to try a whole lot of different styles on the red carpet and the cropped pants/slightly longer jacket is just that.ruth-wilsonInterview Magazine is crushing it on the fantastic TV profiles and photo shoot front this year and there’s a couple more this week.

First up Ruth Wilson discussing The Affair, which returns later this month for more mashed-up memory misery and for all its stumbles, I’m looking forward to it coming back. Also Wilson is doing the whole menswear inspired look in Calvin Klein Collection and I am here for it.birgitte-hjort-sorensenI’ve been thinking about Borgen a lot this week; part of this is to do with current events and the other is because of the work the three leads have been getting since this show ended. Sidse Babett Knudsen is currently starring in Westworld, Pilou Asbæk will be back as Euron Greyjoy on Game of Thrones and Birgitte Hjort Sørensen had a brief, but memorable part on GoT and was in the one season and done Vinyl. Basically, HBO loves Borgen and I need to do a rewatch.

In Interview, Sørensen talks about the big breaks she has had with Pitch Perfect 2Game of Thrones and Vinyl as well as returning to the stage as she takes on Les Liaisons Dangereuses co-starring Liev Schreiber and Janet McTeer. thrThis cover was released on Wednesday and was pretty much the bright spark in a dismal day; Zendaya is someone I am looking forward to seeing so much more of and while I was pretty unenthusiastic about another Spiderman movie, the cast is something to get excited about.

This is a really dreamy looking cover shot and the accompanying “Next Gen” profiles includes recent faves like The Get Down’s Justice Smith and Shameik Moore, Glenn Powell aka the reason I carried on watching Scream Queens and singer/actress Kiersey Clemons (Transparent season 1).beyonceI almost didn’t include this because it was making me feel so sad, but fuck it; I love this photo of Beyoncé in a polka dot ladysuit and her pantsuit wearing dancers from the Get Out the Vote concert in support of Hillary Clinton in Cleveland last weekend.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

3 Nov

A mostly casual “Out of the Box” this week with plenty of panel outfits on offer with a dash of award show performance ensembles, an important makeup campaign, magazine editorials and a lovely treat to end on. keri-russellThe 92 Y and Hollywood Reporter evening with The Americans didn’t give anything away for season 5, but there was a whole lot of insight and fun including a discussion about Keri Russell’s “Emmy vein” and you can read all about it here.

What I didn’t mention is this spot on panel attire in that it is super casual with a dash of fancy with a pair of white Louboutins. Also an ideal fall sweater/skinny jeans pairing and you could easily switch the pumps for boots; great daytime casual.mandy-mooreAt Entertainment Weekly’s PopFest Mandy Moore also does the heels/jeans thing dressing it up with a blazer; giving great vertical stripe and light pink lip color. I haven’t seen any of This is Us yet because Too Much TV and I am impressed that I don’t know what the whole twist is yet. *cue me finding out later today*amanda-peetFor my honeymoon I bought two new striped tops and then added to my collection with yet another while on this trip; I am very much part of the “you can never have enough striped tops” school. Amanda Peet is giving classic stripes and skinny jeans and yep, I’m here for it.crazy-ex-girlfriendThe Crazy-Ex Girlfriend cast delivering on a very active panel and it might only be two-episodes in, but this new season is magical on every level. dixie-chicks-and-beyonce“Daddy Lessons” is up there as one of my most played songs this year from both “Lemonade” and the Dixie Chicks tour so when Beyoncé played with the Dixie Chicks at the 2016 CMA Awards it was the perfect marriage over both versions. This was a phenomenal performance and I was smiling so much throughout my cheeks began to hurt by the end.

And you can get a free download of this song from Soundcloud! Thanks guys!


A couple of months ago MAC teamed up with Taraji P. Henson for a limited edition collection and gave us this fierce as fuck campaign image. Now MAC has announced that come February 2017, Henson and her Empire co-star Jussie Smollett will be ambassadors for their Viva Glam line. Viva Glam started in 1994 and 100 percent of proceeds from a Viva Glam MAC product have gone to the MAC AIDS Fund raising $430 million in sales.

This is a really striking image of the pair and that lip color sure looks incredible. I will definitely be adding to my collection when it is released in February.genevieve-angelsonIn this landscape of too much TV when new full seasons are released on streaming platform there is often a mixture of excitement and dread (today it is The Crown delivering these feelings). Good Girls Revolt is one such project (especially as my Gilmore Girls catch-up continues) and I am thoroughly enjoying this drama, the female friendships and of course the costuming. Star Genevieve Angelson discusses the clothing aspect in Interview magazine and the accompanying photoshoot includes some super high waisted pant treats.

“There are the romantic relationships in the script, but my personal romantic relationship was with the costume designer. We would create names for certain outfits… I had a jumpsuit I named Larry. I was just waiting for the episode where Larry would come out and we would be together. This is weird now, isn’t it? I’ve anthropomorphized a jumpsuit.”

I am looking forward to seeing Larry in action and that seems like a totally appropriate jumpsuit name.jake-gyllenhaalBecause sometimes the perfect outfit involves a grey T-shirt, sunglasses and a beardy Jake Gyllenhaal waving while at Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

Best of the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet

7 Jun

One of the fashion industry’s biggest nights of the year took place at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night (Monday, 6 June) honoring designers at the CFDA Awards. The annual event celebrates the best in fashion design and there are a whole host of stars on hand to showcase their work.

Here are our favorite looks from the night and trends from the evening include all that sparkles, black and botanical prints.

For a full list of the winner head here.BeyonceBeyoncé was awarded with the Style Icon Award crushing it in super sparkly Givenchy ladysuit (cue switching out lyrics to “Formation”) and wide-brimmed hat.

Aside from a recent Elle interview Beyoncé has let her music and Instagram do the speaking for her and this speech revealed a whole lot about her family’s influence on the clothes she wears and she had this special message to the designers in the room “I want to say thank you to every designer who works tirelessly to make people think they can write their own story.”

She also gave a detailed shout out to her family and threw in a Game of Thrones reference much to my delight.

“My mother and my uncle, God rest his soul, made all of our first costumes, individually sewing hundreds of crystals and pearls, putting so much passion and love into every small detail. When I wore these clothes I felt like Khaleesi. I had an extra suit of armor. It was so much deeper than any brand name.”Abbi and IlanaI love everything about this photo of Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson presenting the Accessory Designer of the Year Award (which went to Paul Andrew) and they both look fabulous in black Rebecca Minkoff creations.Jessica ChastainJessica Chastain combining three of the trends of the evening (black, metallic, foliage) in a stunning leafy Prabal Gurung frock. Only minor quibbles; maybe needs a necklace and/or red lipstick.Gillian JacobsThrowing some bold color into the mix with Gillian Jacobs in Tanya Taylor.Samira WileySamira Wiley is a big Milly fan and so it makes sense that she wears this designer to the CFDA Awards; what a fantastic frock this is. The feathered detail really makes this dress standout. Plus, pockets!Hari NefWe’re entering the 70s influenced portion and Hari Nef works a hard to pull of ethereal Gucci number.Zosia MametThere’s something a little tarot card reader or fabulous 70s shindig about Zosia Mamet’s Maiyet look thanks to the red embellished scarf. Claire Danes and Hugh DancyGiving off relaxed couple vibes are Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy both sporting a healthy post-Memorial Day weekend glow and Danes’ Calvin Klein Collection pleated dress is understated. Well, aside from the part that looks like a button that is screaming to be pushed. Kirsten DunstGoing back to the sparkly theme with Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte and while I wish the skirt was not so sheer, the top half of this dress and those fantastic shoes are enough to get passed this nitpick. Taking the floral trend to the next level by wearing real orchids as earrings.TildaIn a surprisingly low-key look Tilda Swinton is still the ultimate cool as fuck red carpet star in Haider Ackermann sporting the black/silver trend with a flash of orange. Excellent lip color choice. UPDATE! Thanks to the Fug Girls (via Julie Klauser) it transpires that I already own the specific lip color Tilda is wearing; it’s Candy Yum Yum by MAC and it’s great.Alexander SkarsgardDoing it for the dudes in metallics is Alexander Skarsgård in a really great Tom Ford tux.Sebastian StanOh, hello. Sebastian Stan is giving off so much charm in Todd Snyder that I don’t even care he has gone sans socks.

Best of the 2016 Met Gala: Everything Else

3 May

Continuing our rundown of the best of the 2016 Met Gala and the ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology’ theme. Part 1 focused on all the sparkly and shining looks, whereas Part 2 is pretty much a smorgasbord of tech/futurism interpretations including color, white, pattern and some very handsome dudes.Zoe SaldanaZoe Saldana’s feather train stunner from Dolce & Gabbana is a show stopping moment. Katy PerryAlso serving up high drama is Katy Perry in gold embellished Prada with some added tech from the Tamagotchi she has hanging from her belt. Let’s hope she remembered to feed it while she as partying.
Danai Gurira
Danai Gurira is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite and she continues her sartorial hot streak in a striking white Giambattista Valli gown.Karlie KlossWe’ve got a before and after from Karlie Kloss with a two-part Brandon Maxwell starting with a demure capelet that I am giving so many heart eye emojis to.Karlie Kloss (capelet off)To this cutout stunner. It even looks like Kloss has switched out her clutch for both versions. Same fantastic red lipstick for both.

Update!

Soooo…instead of changing into a #MetGala Afterparty dress, @BrandonMaxwell cut my gown into mini ✂️🙈

A post shared by Karlie Kloss (@karliekloss) on

This ensemble got another dramatic style change via a pair of scissors and some booze (thanks to Sophie for the heads up).

Allison WilliamsMore red lip color excellence and cutouts from Allison Williams in a stunning floral Peter Pilotto gown. Naomie HarrisAnother Naomie in Burberry, but this is a very different interpretation to the theme and the detail of Naomie Harris’ gown is mesmerizing. Amandla StenbergMore #LadySuitWatch2016 and Amandla Stenberg’s Calvin Klein ensemble is made complete by what Amandla herself calls ‘Afro Futurism.’ Seriously excellent accessorizing and keeping with the theme.Beyonce KnowlesBeyoncé takes a brief break from her ‘Formation’ tour and general domination of everything music at the moment to slay in latex Givenchy. Jessica ChastainSome looks are harder to get the theme than others. Case in point – Jessica Chastain’s peacock blue Prada, but this is a stunning color on her so I’ll let it slide.SJPSarah Jessica Parker tends to go big at the Met Gala and this year she’s decided to go in a whole other direction with a Hamilton inspired take in Monse (and SJP Collection shoes, obvs) and I guess I have to applaud the audacity to go for something entirely different. Plus Andy Cohen looks like he is having fun here.Rami MalekNow onto the solo guys and stylist Ilaria Urbinati continues to dominate in all things fabulous menswear injecting some color with Rami Malek in Dior.Tom HiddlestonAnd going for a much more traditional look for Tom Hiddleston in Ralph Lauren; Urbinati definitely knows how to pick the perfect suit.Idris ElbaEnding this Met Gala rundown with so much handsome and the event co-chair; Idris Elba crushes it in tailored to perfection Tom Ford.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Apr

What is probably going to end up as the musical event of the year took place over the weekend and this week’s Instagram round-up kicks off with this seminal moment. Plus the usual TV season beginnings, endings and everything in-between as there are a whole lot of shows wrapping up and just getting started.

A post shared by amandla (@amandlastenberg) on

 

This was a huge weekend for HBO, but rather than dragons it is Beyoncé dominating pop culture conversation after she released her visual tour de force album Lemonade. There is the massive cultural impact as well as the more surface level aspects to pore over like every outfit Beyoncé wears throughout.

Plus plenty of celebrity cameos including TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite Amandla Stenberg and she shared this very cool looking shot.

When you @beyonce af

A post shared by Zendaya (@zendaya) on

 

Zendaya also appeared in Lemonade and instead of a moment from the shoot, here she is enjoying the broadcast of this incredible visual and musical feat.

 

Lots of shows wrapping up this week with Scandal being one of them and the sight of Angela Bassett is enough to get me to check back in for the finale (although it looks like she might have been there in a non-acting capacity).

#GoodWifeFarewell 🍷

A post shared by The Good Wife (@thegoodwife_cbs) on

 

There was a lot of wine on The Good Wife this week even by Alicia’s standards and here is fantastic shot of a laughing Julianna Margulies with a glass of red (or most likely grape juice).

 

Broad City finished its third season last week and here is a very cute photo of Abbi and Ilana from filming the finale.

Those red glasses are very special. I checked back in with The Mindy Project a couple of weeks ago and it will be interesting to see how the rest of this season plays out now they have done that big thing.

Shooting of Top of the Lake season 2 is underway and Elisabeth Moss is reveling in the stunning locations.

 

And in her incredible new co-star. Okay this photo is a month old and I don’t know how I missed it first time around, but there is too much amazing in this one picture not to share. I am beyond excited for the return of Top of the Lake as it was a big 2013 highlight.

The UnREAL cast continue to deliver with set treats including this shot of new guy cast member Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Rady in formal attire.

 

A couple of things – I love that Margaret Qualley hangs out with Liv Tyler (who I also think could easily play her sister) and this is a reminder that The Leftovers will soon start shooting its third (and final *sob*) season.

 

Meanwhile, Justin Theroux continues to work on his fabulous hiatus beard.

Michelle Williams appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week to discuss her current Broadway stint as well as the Shia LaBeouf incident from when she was in Cabaret. She wore a fantastic Louis Vuitton outfit and I am so pleased stylist Kate Young gives a close up of the stunning skirt detail. Excellent lipstick points as always too (click here to see more).

On Late Night with Seth Meyers Jordan Peele casually dropped it into conversation that he is now married to Chelsea Peretti and Peretti confirmed the happy news on Instagram. So what better way to end this week’s Insta highlights than with this little cute guy in his Hawaiian shirt.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

10 Feb

Another busy weekend with the Super Bowl and the NAACP Image Awards and we’ve got some behind the scenes action from both. Plus the usual array of set photos including Jane the VirginInside Amy Schumer and The Good Wife.

Happy #SB50 from Street & Landry. #FNL #ClearEyesFullHeartsCantLose #Broncos #UnitedInOrange

A post shared by skittishkid (@skittishkid) on

 

Friday Night Lights reunion at the Super Bowl on Sunday gave me plenty to cheer about. There’s also a much bigger version of this meet-up taking place at this year’s ATX Television Festival and if I didn’t have a wedding to pay for I would be there in a flash.

 

A shot of these three fabulous women came up on TV and I maybe full on yelled in delight (the only things to get a strong reaction like this on Sunday were Beyoncé and the big Good Wife news – this was a mix of sadness/about time).

And here’s another. Just because.

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

 

Beyoncé slayed both during the halftime show with her new song “Formation” and when she unleashed the song/video on the world the day before. There are so many incredible photos (mostly from the dress rehearsal) on Beyoncé’s Instagram and I really love this close up shot of her backup dancers and their fishnets, leather skirts and Doc Marten ankle boots (you need a good solid heel to perform those kind of routines on grass). For more on the coordinated costumes head here.

BIG WINNER TONIGHT! So deserved. Love you Michael.

Cush Jumbo has been one of the consistently brilliant things about this (final) Good Wife season and costume designer Daniel Lawson continues to deliver on the fantastic prints. Looking forward to seeing this in one of the final nine episodes.

A post shared by Katie Aselton (@katieaselton) on

 

This is all kinds of adorable. Plus bonus grizzly beard points for Mark Duplass AND I just remembered that Togetherness is back very soon (Katie Aselton will also be recurring!).

 

Set life can be very dangerous even when hanging out in your trailer, as Billy Eichner found out this week. Super scary stuff.

 

Inside Amy Schumer excellent repeat guest stars ahoy.

 

My ‘To Read’ pile is already at a ridiculous height, but I can’t resist a good book rec. Plus Mindy’s sweater (another thing I don’t really need more of) is calling out to me.

 

Kroll Show might be over (*sob*), but thankfully there are still plenty of reminders everywhere.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

29 Aug

The Emmys are over and the red carpet has been awash with fabulous attire (the ‘best of’ rundown is here, here and here) so this edition of “Out of the Box” is a mixture of iconic shots of the week, magazine covers and a new fashion campaign featuring a Game of Thrones star.

Beyonce FeministWhile TV Ate My Wardrobe has been Emmy focused this week, another awards show took place with the VMAs and Beyoncé performed an incredible 12-song medley over 16 minutes. One of the defining images came during “Flawless” as Beyoncé stood defiant in front of a huge “FEMINIST” sign (for an excellent article on Beyoncé and this moment head here). It’s been a banner week for women in pop and feminism with Taylor Swift also reconciling her past dismissive thoughts on feminism with an acknowledgement that she is a feminist.

MichonneEntertainment Weekly released four in motion Walking Dead covers; this one featuring Michonne is incredible and by far the most striking.

Nylon Aubrey PlazaIt looks like Nylon magazine is ditching its TV issue special format for their September issue; however one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s TV favorites is covering the ‘Rebel Fashion’ themed edition with Aubrey Plaza in leather and (faux?) fur. You can watch a video of Aubrey here talking about the location of the photo shoot, designers she is into and the final season of Parks and Recreation.

Karen Millen Sophie TurnerKit Harington isn’t the only Game of Thrones star booking fall campaigns as Sophie Turner is looking a far cry from the heavy gown wearing and now feathered shouldered Sansa Stark as part of the new Karen Millen showcase. In the accompanying video (which you can see below) Turner is wearing this floral jacket (you can get an oversized version at the moment) as she travels across London to the shoot while the strains of Elastica’s “Connection” (this song sums up my Britpop years) plays over the top. It’s a cool nod to the decade that is influencing fashion at the moment and London is a prominent feature now as it was then.

 

 

Best of the 2014 Met Gala – Part Two

6 May

Continuing our look at the Met Gala celebrating Charles James and part two (head here for part one) is focusing on the couples and dudes.

Emma StoneEmma Stone and Andrew Garfield have been on the promo trail for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for months it seems and both of them deliver once again. While I’m mourning the loss of Andrew Garfield’s incredible hair, Emma Stone is doing a good distraction job with a chunky side-braid that’s making me long for hair that can be tied up again. Stone’s Thakoon two-piece in pink and magenta is incredibly eye-catching and the leg slit is tastefully provocative. In a grey Band of Outsiders tux jacket, Garfield is complementing the pinks of Stone’s ensemble while also standing out himself.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonDiane Kruger and Joshua Jackson were on the most anticipated list and they didn’t disappoint. Diane Kruger’s Jason Wu for Hugo Boss is sleek and the contrasting shimmery fabric on the bottom half is mesmerizing. Jackson doesn’t look too bad either. So many Pacey feelings right now.

Beyonce and Jay-ZBeyoncé’s black beaded Givenchy Couture gown is super sexy and like nothing else we saw on the red carpet at the Met Gala. The beaded veil ties the look together and the pop of burgundy lip color adds more dramatic impact. This is a great turn from Beyoncé and she tends to bring her A-game to this event (and to everything she does really). Jay Z is looking pretty dapper in a white tux jacket.

Sarah Silverman and Michael SheenSarah Silverman tends to do things differently on the red carpet and on this occasion she is wearing a maroon Zac Posen that is possibly the best interpretation of the 2014 theme (maybe tying with Taylor Swift). Michael Sheen’s done the decoration part of the dress code and the couple will be appearing together in the new season of Masters of Sex (which I’m already super anticipating).

Blake LivelyOne couple who don’t tend to pose together on the red carpet did away with this eye roll inducing policy last night. Both Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are wearing Gucci with Lively injecting some old Hollywood glamour into the Charles James celebration. This gown is pure Blake Lively (maybe too much) and the train adds a hint of romanticism to the look.

Claire Danes and Hugh DancyClaire Danes’ Oscar de la Renta gown is one we featured during NYFW and where Emma Stone’s ensemble is putting a contemporary twist on the Charles James theme, Danes is doing the same with color blocking pink and burgundy in a classic structured gown. The velvet/satin material twist is doing something different and a beardy Hugh Dancy looks pretty sharp in his traditional tuxedo.

Kim KCredit where credit is due as Kim Kardashian shows a big improvement on last year’s floral disaster. Maybe it’s the recent Vogue cover, but both Kim and Kanye look pretty damn good in Lanvin. Kanye’s gone all in with tails and a white piqué vest and while Kim’s daring thigh split was problematic, there’s no need to dwell on that when they look this good.

Matt BomerNow to the dudes and Matt Bomer in a tux is pretty much all I need to say.

Benedict CumberbatchFollowed quickly by Benedict Cumberbatch in tails and he’s observing the dress code for the guys which asked for white tie and decorations – most have the white tie down, but Cumberbatch goes the extra distance with a pocket chain. Very dapper indeed.

For part one of our Met Gala coverage head here.
