Best of Elle’s Annual Women in Television Celebration

14 Jan

Lena Dunham covers the Elle Women in Television issue (out now) and last night the magazine hosted their annual event celebrating this issue and the many amazing women working in the television industry. Patterns and color aplenty!

Lena ElleThe lady of the hour and Lena Dunham floral Prada works like a charm as does the slicked back bob, smoky eyes and pink lip color.

Juliette LewisMore winter florals on display and Juliette Lewis is stunning in this beautiful dramatic skirt and high neck (nearing turtle territory) black sleeveless top.

Ellie Kemper and Gillian JacobsSo I’m a little on the fence with Gillian Jacobs crop and skirt combo, but Ellie Kemper is slaying it in red lace (more florals). A very cute pairing nonetheless.

Tracee Ellis RossThe scarlet dress trend continues as does Tracee Ellis Ross’ winning red carpet style.

Yara ShahidiTracee Ellis Ross’ Black-ish teen co-star Yara Shahidi is another doing the bold color patterned skirt with aplomb. Not so sure about open toed boots, but overall this is a very fun look.

Cat DeeleyCasual chic from Cat Deeley and I am coveting her Beetlejuice-esque blazer hard.

Constance ZimmerConstance Zimmer’s frock is ticking all the boxes of a perfect not too fancy, but still fancy enough dress – collar, belted and fun print (floral once again). Also bonus red lipstick points are awarded.

Xosha RoquemoreThe Mindy Project’s Xosha Roquemore is a vision of black and white outfit goodness with another crop top I find myself drawn to.

Elle groupClosing things out with a fun group shot with recent Golden Globe winner and Transparent creator Jill Soloway along with Glitterish’s Alison Sudol (from Transparent), Sia in striking orange and Whitney Cummings rocking a starry sky print dress.

Best of the 2014 UK Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards

4 Jun

Right on the heels of the CFDA Fashion Awards are the UK Glamour magazine Women of the Year Awards celebrating those who are making an impact in film, television, fashion and music. Color, print and metallics dominate our style highlights.

Emily VanCampEmily VanCamp picked up International TV Actress and this Monique Lhuillier fuchsia tweed print mid-length dress could almost double as fancy business wear if it wasn’t for those fantastic bell-sleeves. This is sophisticated, yet playful and the slightly longer length sets it apart from a lot of the shorter hemlines on display.

Natalie DormerGoing even longer is Natalie Dormer in this starry ’70s inspired Matthew Williamson halter gown and it’s the perfect partner to Brie Larson’s DVF from the CFDA Awards. This maybe needs a bolder lip color, but the Game of Thrones star shines on this red carpet.

Sophie TurnerAs does Dormer’s co-star Sophie Turner and she has gone for a slightly more edgy look in McQ Alexander McQueen. Mixing plaid with leather is a fun choice, particularly when the leather aspect goes beyond a belt into a built-in corset. Pairing this with maroon booties might seem like a misstep considering it is summer, but I’m totally into them.

Emma WillisEmma Willis picked up Presenter of the year and as yellow is my clothing catnip I am practically drooling over this canary Roksanda Ilincic skirt (that is very similar to this one). The color blocking is on point and Willis adds even more pop with her pink lipstick without becoming a walking crayon set.

Cat DeeleyPresenter Cat Deeley’s Matthew Williamson star print shift dress shows off her amazing legs and the red belt detail with her silver snakeskin strappy heels complement the simplicity of this style. Deeley looks fantastic.

Daisy LoweDaisy Lowe opts for a retro silhouette in a 1954 Dior couture (from William Vintage) and the nipped in waist, full skirt and open neckline is a classic shape for a reason; Lowe pulls this off without looking like she is playing 1950s dress up.

Gemma ChanActress Gemma Chan does the metallic shift/strappy shoe look with aplomb.

Sarah HylandModern Family’s Sarah Hyland wears a super shimmer Gucci T-shirt style frock and while the oversized nature does almost drown her, it’s a funky take on what could look like either mermaid scales or chainmail. Take your pick with what fantasy crossover you want, just be sure to ditch the nude pumps on the way out.

Hayley AtwellHayley Atwell dons one of the few floor-length gowns at this event in Ermanno Scervino and the floral embroidery, braid and pink lip gives this a 70s boho feel.
