Out of the Box: Look of the Week

22 Apr

It is an all Tribeca Film Festival offering this week and TV got in on the action with panels for shows such as Broad CityThe Good Wife and Mr Robot. As with a lot of these events the outfits range from the fancy end to casual cool, which makes for a very fun and varied “Out of the Box.Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, Kelly RipaThe Broad City panel took place before the ABC morning TV drama and season 2 guest star Kelly Ripa moderated. Ripa is one of my favorite ever Broad City guest stars and not just because my go to gif about pizza is one featuring her. I am very much in favor of this argument and Ripa in this whole debacle because there are certain words that only ever get used about a woman when she has been fucked over.

Completely unrelated to the behind the scenes stuff going on, but her outfit here is really cute. Abbi and Ilana look funky and panel ready with the option to go out after in this attire. Abbi’s shoes are stacked strappy greatness and Ilana’s hair is giving me curl envy. Good Wife panelThe Good Wife is in farewell tour mode and normally I might be bothered by the presence of such a new cast member, but Cush Jumbo’s Lucca Quinn has been one of this seasons highlights from her funky styling to filling in the much needed Alicia friend position. Plus she gives such great side eye. Here at the Good Wife Tribeca panel Jumbo’s Michael Kors frock is my favorite of the three looks, but Julianna Margulies and Matt Czuchry are also killing it in the panel style stakes. Mr RobotRounding things out on the three co-stars posing together front are Mr Robot’s Christian Slater, Carly Chaikin and Rami Malek. Oh and season 2 has a premiere date; Wednesday, July 13 and you can see them discussing the show here.

At the event Carly Chaikin wore something you might see pop up on Elementary as it is very much in the Joan Watson wheelhouse, which I am very much here for and I would very much like a pair of those Aryn Glasser pants. Malek and Slater are both doing their top button thing and this is one cool looking cast.Gillian JacobsRecent “Out of the Box” columns have been awash with color and print, but this week there are quite a few variations on black classic outfits including Gillian Jacobs at the Dean premiere. The ruffled neckline and detailing makes this more than just a run of the mill black dress.
Viola Davis - CustodyAnd Viola Davis puts a cutout spin on this black fit and flare frock at the Custody premiere. Lots of really great strappy sandals and nail polish combinations this week too and I can finally crack out some color for my toes. SJPOn the effortless end of the scale Sarah Jessica Parker does denim with a pair of SJP ‘Echo’ gold booties, long sleeve grey tee and a brown jacket at the #ActuallySheCan film series event.TOm HiddlestonEnding things on a dapper note and Tom Hiddleston has a lot of projects to promote at the moment and he continues to wear suits very well. Hiddleston is another Ilaria Urbinati client and anyone familiar with TV Ate My Wardrobe and award season will know how much I love Urbinati’s work, particularly on the menswear end as she dresses her dudes in suits of all colors. Here Hiddleston is in a brown Dolce & Gabbana while on the High-Rise trail (a movie in which he wears suits well).

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

30 Mar

If this week’s Instagram collection could be summed up in one emoji it would be heart eyes as there are plenty of co-stars hanging out treats on offer with a strong dose of cute.

 

Kicking off this week with a big scoop of adorable and Rami Malek hanging with co-star Portia Doubleday’s dog Logan.

Da fuck?

A post shared by Carly Chaikin (@carlychaikin) on

 

Keeping on the Mr Robot train and on set selfies from the new season that don’t reveal anything new, but I heart regardless. Heavy Darlene eyeliner is always welcome.

 

Everything about this photo is charming as hell and now I want this coupling to be a very real thing.

 

Girls is on a hot streak this season and this week’s Marnie-centric episode was as triumphant as Allison Williams looks in this photo.

 

Flashing back to simpler times and pre whatever happened that caused Christopher Abbott to leave Girls under a cloud. But he did return and boy did we get a much more beardy Charlie in the process and this episode really is top tier Girls. It was good to see him again even if it was tinged with the tragedy of what has since become of Charlie. I miss that awesome bed he made.

 

Praise is justifiably heaped on Jane the Virgin from so many different angles and visually it continues to be striking in fresh and new ways. Everyone here looks spectacular.

 

They also kill it in motion.

In exactly 12 weeks… #OITNBS4 #84days #comethru

A post shared by Samira Wiley (@whododatlikedat) on

 

The OITNB countdown has begun and I cannot wait to spend more time with these ladies.

 

One thing I spend more time thinking about than is maybe necessary is whether actors end up falling asleep during sleeping scenes or in this case in a pile of laundry after fake taking a lot of drugs. And the answer looks like yes.

Basketball being played on set between takes gives me instant ER vibes and I’m also enjoying how these poses both resemble a superhero stance and shooting hoops.

 

This is very cute and I am happy Elementary has been renewed for season 5.

28 weeks ago(according to Instagram) @roomthemovie premiered at the #telluridefilmfestival. After the screening @jacobtremblay and I toasted. He had chocolate milk and I had red wine. I remember feeling so vulnerable after sharing this movie with the world for the first time; unsure of what was to come. Last night marked what may be our final toast to this film . He had a soda and I had sake. We are in Japan. Together we have traveled the globe, spent almost two years hanging out, playfully arguing about things like who can hold their breath longer and talking at length about Room. At its core, every step of the way has been taken with love. We were generous and patient with each other. We laughed a lot, especially when it was hard. We picked each other up, answered for the other when one was tired and always kept silliness alive. Thank you Room for bringing us together. Thank you Room for uniting us with the rest of the world. Thank you to everyone who shared this journey with us. I will never ever forget it.

Keeping on the cute theme and sadly my request to keep this going for forever has been denied and the Room promo tour is officially over.

 

It’s not an Anthora coffee cup, but regardless I’m getting Bob Benson flashbacks.

Happy birthday to a most loving and devoted lady @amysedaris Xxx

A post shared by SJP (@sarahjessicaparker) on

 

Instagram is a platform used for many things including celebrities wishing each other happy birthday in picture form. Sarah Jessica Parker took this opportunity to post not one, but a whopping nine pictures celebrating the incredible Amy Sedaris and it only made me love SJP even more.

 

Justin Theroux went with a more sedate two, but this one is also fabulous.

 

It’s like Aya Cash reached into my brain with this picture/caption. The world needs more Melanie Laurent.

Welcome to this week’s installment of “Behind the Insta-Scenes” and we’ve got sartorial highs, set shenanigans and some very cute animals to share with you.

 

Someone needs to make a movie with these three ladies as triplets. Tom Cullen has already come up with the tagline. Please and thank you.

 

When the Mr Robot dudes go away for SXSW the ladies get their puzzle on.

I love Aya Cash so much.

 

Not one, but three kittens! Thank you Brooklyn Nine-Nine for this furry treat.

 

And not to forget all the dog lovers – Constance Zimmer showing off this little cutie on the set of UnREAL. And now I’m wondering what manipulative role this puppy will be playing.

Also here for random encounters like this one with Chris Noth walking by the Girls set and getting accosted by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (also understandable).

Ariana Grande did a superb job on SNL this week accidental swear and all. And now I have This is Not A Feminist Song” stuck in my head for at least another three more days.

 

Greg Williams has one of the best celebrity photography Instagram accounts and the access he gets at events like Letters Live lends to some very intimate moments; including this amazing shot of Gillian Anderson peaking from behind the curtain.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

15 Jan

A red carpet heavy week with pre-Globes, other awardsthe main event, after parties and TCA with some people pretty much attending all of these. We’re going to concentrate on mostly TCA and after party sartorial delights with a dash of the Marie Claire Image Makers celebration.

Rami MalekRami Malek takes the crown for best dressed dude this week slaying in everything from his button upped style to looking super sharp in Dior Homme at the Golden Globes. Stylist Ilaria Urbinati is one of my favorites especially when it comes to menswear and she gave a rundown of the getting ready process for GQ, which includes Rami in a very lovely striped sweater. At the Mr Robot TCA panel he shows that he can also do the suit with tie thing in Calvin Klein rounding off this excellent week.

Carly ChaikinMr Robot is also killing it in the lady style stakes and Carly Chaikin’s AFI floral number was another high point of this very busy period (see also Portia Doubleday’s Golden Globes disco ball frock). Chaikin’s got another winner here in polka dot Jill Stuart and this is when a little bit of sheer totally works.

Jessica St. Clair and Lennon ParhamIn surprising good news from the USA Network panel it was announced yesterday that Playing House has been renewed for a third season and I’m so happy about this as I really need more of this wonderful show. Bold block colors were on trend at the Golden Globes and creators/stars Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham both look fabulous in this style choice.

Juliet Lewis TCAA classic floral frock for Juliette Lewis at the Disney/ABC TCA day and a very muted prelude to the cracked out brilliance of what she would be wearing later that day.

Kristen StewartUltimate Kristen Stewart red carpet attire at the first annual Marie Claire Image Makers event and everything about this from the coat to the metallic detail on her Sally LaPointe is perfect. Stewart was there to honor makeup artist Jillian Dempsey and her hair stylist Adir Abergel was also getting recognized.

Aja Naomi KingThe length is awkward, but this color looks amazing on How to Get Away with Murder’s Aja Naomi King. Plus it has pockets!

Honourable WomanI know I’ve already written about Maggie Gyllenhaal’s art deco looking Marc Jacobs dress (which I still adore), but I couldn’t resist this Honourable Woman reunion with Tobias Menzies at the HBO Golden Globes after party.

Carrie Brownstein, Gaby HoffmannSo here for the size of Gaby Hoffmann’s hair – Ali’s hair on Transparent in season 2 reaches new heights of everything – her dress, which at first I thought might be a jumpsuit and Carrie Brownstein’s oh so amazing patterned frock/general super cool vibe. Amazon Head of Comedy Joe Lewis looks rather pleased and swish at the Amazon Golden Globes celebration and I’m guessing that has a little something to do with the Mozart in the Jungle double win.Laverne CoxOh HBO, your backdrop is like the wallpaper I wish I had, but would immediately regret and it very much works with Laverne Cox switching one incredible white gown for another in custom Mark Zunino; adding her to the list of caped wonders.

Kathryn HahnAnd this is where the choice of posing wall pattern makes it feel like you are looking at a Magic Eye picture and therefore giving me a rage induced headache because I could never see the sailboat or whatever. I do like Kathryn Hahn’s dress despite the optical obstacle.

Transparent HBO AfterpartyEnding on Transparent chaos and another angle of this shot. Kathryn Hahn’s pose/face is everything. This looks like the later hours at a wedding.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jan

This week’s Golden Globes coverage extends beyond the many red carpet posts with a whole lot of selfies from the ballroom and the after parties. Plus a whole slew of other events and reminders of when certain shows are back.

 

Kicking things off with all the pretty from Gina Rodriguez and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac. Plus Gina Rodriguez gives an all important beard smell related tweet.

From the American Horror Story: Hotel table where it looks like shenanigans are being had.

 

Backstage selfies with varying opinions about the lighting.

 

A quick change from Taraji P. Henson makes a whole lot of sense because dancing with a train that long is just impractical. Serayah opts for one of the bold color looks that was on trend this weekend.

 

Serious smolder and pout face from The Flash’s Grant Gustin and Shantel VanSanten and also a really good opportunity to remind you The Flash is back next week.

It helps to be in with both HBO and Netflix as Pedro Pascal’s invites show.

 

The Netflix love is strong at a pre-Globes party with OITNB’s Elizabeth Rodriguez, Pedro Pascal and Netflix newbie Gillian Jacobs.

 

A busy weekend full of events for many and Gillian Jacobs attended the Vivienne Westwood ‘Art of Elysium’ celebration on Saturday in this stunning floral number. Getting pet approval points too.

Carly Chaikin’s AFI luncheon dress is one of our ultimate faves from the sea of recent outfits we have discussed and we also highly approve of her selfie subject from this event.

 

A very good week for Taraji with awards and magazine covers, plus finally getting Jussie Smollet back at his own game.

 

Mindy Kaling has worn a lot of amazing things and her Instagram acts as an outfit archive, but I can definitely see why she is calling this one of her favorites. All the heart eye emojis.

Best of the Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet: Twinkle, Twinkle Big Star

11 Jan

Welcome to our coverage of the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet coverage and while the actual show was pretty hit and miss, the style levels did not disappoint. We’ve got quite a few posts coming and kicking things off is the big trend of the night with all that sparkles. The best thing about this other than appealing to my inner magpie is how much variety there is with this theme.

Let’s get to it and keep checking back for more posts.

Brie LarsonEven if Brie Larson hadn’t won her custom Calvin Klein is giving off all the trophy vibes in the best possible way.

Regina KingRegina King combines bold gold sequins with a cape in Krikor Jabotian and someone write a superhero part for her please. I’ve already seen this on some worst dressed lists, but I love it.

Portia DoubledayMr Robot won big much to my delight (late to the party, but I just finished it yesterday) and Portia Doubleday is going full disco ball in this stunning Naeem Khan frock.

Viola DavisMoving into the shades of blue and Viola Davis could light up a galaxy in this starry eyed Marchesa delight (not something I say very often about Marchesa).

Jenna Dewan TatumSorry Channing and your Gambit hair, it’s all about Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad Couture. Also ticking those all important pocket boxes.

Bryce Dallas HowardDuring Bryan Dallas Howard’s interview on E! she revealed that she bought this beautiful Jenny Packham frock from Neiman Marcus because as a size 6 (size 10 UK) she doesn’t get all that much choice for events like this, which is sadly not surprising and maddening all the same. It does show that off the rack is just as good as the sample size offerings that other stars are privy too.

Julianna MooreJulianne Moore came with Tom Ford and is wearing Tom Ford (A Single Man rewatch is on the cards) and she looks like she has time traveled from an amazing 1970s party and is somehow making the velvet choker aspect work. She truly is magical.

Carly ChaikinMore sartorial treats from the Mr Robot cast and these ladies have been killing it this weekend with Carly Chaikin going part mermaid in iridescent Juan Carlos Obando.

Olivia WildeCustom Michael Kors for Olivia Wilde and she’s switching out emerald shimmer for burgundy and it is just as mesmerizing. There was a lot to love about Wilde’s red carpet styling in 2015 and it looks like this year is no different.

Amy AdamsRounding things out is Amy Adams offering up sparkly accents in orange Atelier Versace proving you can be a redhead and wear this shade.

Stay tuned for more Golden Globes red carpet posts and for a look at what we loved last year head here.

Mad Men Reunion and More at the 16th Annual AFI Awards

9 Jan

It’s only the first week of January and already it feels like we are in the full thick of it when it comes to award season. Tomorrow is the Golden Globes which means plenty of pre-parties tonight, but first there is the AFI Awards luncheon showcasing the best of the year in television and film with 10 titles from each getting honored. These include Mad MenBlack-ishMr RobotUnREAL and Master of None on the TV side and Room, The Big ShortCarol and Spotlight on the film end. For the full list of honorees head here.

As it is a daytime event the looks are slightly more casual and while I love a fancy gown and dudes in tuxedos (and see also ladysuits), these are actually my ideal kind of outfits. Pattern dominates once again much to my delight and the guys are really bringing it with an array of suit/jacket choices; variety is not something you will be seeing a lot of in the dude department tomorrow night (well at least we have Alan Cumming to count on).

Kiernan Shipka, January Jones and Jon HammOne to feature in the Kodak Carousel collection and I’m getting all emotional just thinking about how Mad Men left these three characters. Jon Hamm’s blue plaid is an excellent choice for this cocktail reception in what will be a sea of black this weekend. Kiernan Shipka and January Jones have coordinated, but not in a way that looks too matchy matchy; Shipka’s collar detail and Jones’ red lipstick are both fantastic. This picture is everything.

Brie Larson and Jacob TemblayBrie Larson continuing her week of sartorial highs in this super pretty Gucci floral dress with a twist; pink snakes weaving through the foliage. Another collar to love and she looks entirely at home with one of the best dressed guys of award season. Yes I know Jacob Tremblay is only nine, but he is showing how it’s done from formal wear to tweed sports coats.

Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday and Carly ChaikinMore floral dress treats from the Mr Robot ladies with Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin also getting the excellent collar memo. Christian Slater isn’t looking too shabby either.

Yara Shahidi, Miles Brown, Marcus Sribner, Marsai MartinThe kids from Black-ish are also rocking various prints including Marsai Martin’s polka dot delight, plus more plaid from Miles Brown. Teens Yara Shahidi and Marcus Scribner don’t let the side down and all age groups are covered in the high style stakes.

Tracee Ellis RossTheir onscreen mom Tracee Ellis Ross is also killing it in with a) more standout prints, b) another fabulous collar and c) red lip color bliss.

Constance Zimmer and Sarah Gertrude ShapiroI have a feeling the UnREAL table is a whole lot of fun and I’m very much feeling co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s all-black ensemble with the dash of gold jewelry especially when paired with Constance Zimmer super sweet pink look. The shoulders on Zimmer’s dress are giving off Star Trek costume vibes and I am here for it.

Aziz AnsariAziz Ansari is a guy we can count on to turn out look super sharp and this is no exception.

Ryan GoslingSimple and effective from Ryan Gosling in a great brown suit with a super relaxed stance on the open collar.

Rami MalekRami Malek is also going for the no tie option (which is more than fine for a daytime event like this), but the button done up thing is definitely better for his whole aesthetic.
