Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from Comic-Con

28 Jul

A special bonus “Behind the Insta-Scenes” column this week covering all things Comic-Con; from TV superheroes to movies. Plus casts from shows including iZombieThe Walking DeadGame of Thrones and Orphan Black descending on San Diego.

 

Kicking off with one of the most stylish moments from the whole convention and the Black Panther press tour and movie is already top of my Marvel most anticipated list.

 

More Danai Gurira and this time with her Walking Dead co-stars. Not just an excuse to see Gurira’s amazing LWD again, but also for some Jeffery Dean Morgan beardie selfie goodness.

Comic-Con Instagram is awash with the mass group cast selfie; here is the Kong: Skull Island effort. A little on the blurry side, but points for the amount of people in it.

Behind the scenes on these group posed shots is also a big thing from Comic-Con Insta. Chris Pratt is looking in a whole different direction.

 

More casual style treats from Tatiana Maslany and the whole Orphan Black cast, which looks so tiny when you remember Maslany plays over 50% of the parts. Lovely to see Maslany’s double Kathryn Alexandre taking part in these festivities as she is just as vital.

One of my favorite things about Comic-Con is getting to see the Game of Thrones cast hanging with co-stars they have never had a scene with.

HANNIBAL HAS ARRIVED #sdcc2016

No Hannibal Panel (or Pannibal) and Comic-Con this year, but Bryan Fuller made sure Hannibal was in attendance.

 

James Wolk with coffee instantly makes me think of Mad Men and for that I am grateful.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Jun

Premieres, pre-gaming the Emmys and the first official onset photo from the revival I have already been endlessly talking about are all part of this week’s edition of “Out of the Box.”

Anna Faris and Chris PrattInstant cheering for Anna Faris in an amazing metallic long sleeve mini Rubin Singer dress and it contrasts well with husband Chris Pratt’s blue suit and check shirt combo. They really are the most adorable at the Jurassic World premiere.

Lauren LapkusA close runner up in the adorable stakes is former Orange is the New Black correctional officer Lauren Lapkus and she looks delightful in a super chic LUBLU Kira Plastinina. At first glance the shoes look a little matchy matchy until spotting the iridescent nature of the Andrew Gn pumps. OITNB is back today (!) but sadly I don’t think we will be seeing Fischer (if her IMDb page is anything to go by).

Uzo AdubaIt’s hard knowing all of OITNB season 3 is available to watch and not having seen a single one yet (this will be a different story in a couple of hours hopefully), but Uzo Aduba is soothing those woes in a color blocking delight at last night’s ‘Orangecon’ fan event.

Samira WileyAnd Samira Wiley also looks really lovely by doing the summer dress thing.

Naomie HarrisPeter Pilotto can be hard to pull off as there tends to be a lot going on, but Naomie Harris does just this while attending the UK Entourage premiere (I had avoided acknowledging this movie until now) reminding me there is a new Bond press tour which Harris will be part of in the fall. Cue much anticipation.

Ilana glazerA couple of months ago Variety gathered a whole host of actors from comedy and drama to discuss the roles they play in the ‘Variety Emmy Studio.’ Now the videos are being slowly rolled out and with that come the official portraits. I really love this shot of Broad City’s Ilana Glazer which reads like an amused “what?!” statement with excellent eyebrow and statement jewelry game.

Keri RussellA soul piercing look from Keri Russell and a quote focusing on how Elizabeth dresses on The Americans versus her own style “I wear these silk shirts and high-heeled boots and I feel like that armor has become very much a part of that character to me. I feel very panther-like. It’s much more grown-up than I look in real life. I like the way it makes me feel. It’s much tougher and cooler than I am, than Keri actually is.” For more from the Drama Actors including co-star Matthew Rhys head here.

Gina Rodriguez

Nailing what makes Jane the Virgin so special is Gina Rodriguez who also happens to be rocking the shit out of this cute pose/dress “I feel so lucky that in a scene, the way (Jennie Snyder Urman) writes, I can go from comedy to drama within literally a minute and a half. And it’s so freeing, and I get to stretch my wings and practice and live in my craft and fly.” My tears that flow coupled with all the laughter while watching pretty much episode is a sign this is working.

The X-Files first lookI don’t know if I was more excited by this first shot on set as tweeted by the official X-Files account, the pap photos of Mulder and Scully together again or when I found out that Hannibal costume designer Christopher Hargadon is also working on this X-Files revival. There’s been a lot of excellent moments for an X-Files fan this week even if January seems so far away.

About last night… #Looking #Halloween

A post shared by Looking (@lookinghbo) on

 

Halloween in February for Looking with an excellent and high on the cringe factor episode. Bonus points for costumes which actually looked homemade rather than the TV version of homemade.

 

The Mindy Project excels in the guest department and what could be better than a very beardy Stephen Colbert as a priest?! Not much.

 

Parks and Recreation finale sadness combined with how much I heart this cast equals all the feelings.

 

Ben Schwartz has been posting Parks and Rec behind the scenes photos for the duration of season 7 and this is definitely one of my all time fave Jean-Ralphio moments.

 

Splendid dresses and posing skills from the ladies on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

 

Even spies still want to grab a quick cup of coffee.

 

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

18 Dec

Last Friday saw the final day of shooting on Parks and Recreation and the cast and crew thoroughly documented the day; so this week’s Behind the Insta-Scenes is going to be an all Parks special. The tag #ThankYouParksCrew is repeated along with sadness as this show comes to an end.

 

Group outdoors shot with a lovely park providing the backdrop.

 

And another bigger group photo this time in the Pawnee Courthouse and courtesy of the Douche himself, Nick Kroll. “Old Stoneface” makes an on the wall cameo.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

15 Aug

Movie premieres featuring TV husband and wife adorableness, street style, talk show appearances, a sneak peek at new web series and a HFPA event are all included in this edition of “Out of the Box.” Alas there is nothing from the Teen Choice Awards, but the sea of crop tops was kind of uninspiring and even Taylor Swift has been wearing better outfits when leaving the gym (and on The Tonight Show as you will see below).

Aubrey and ChrisOne thing that is always guaranteed to warm my heart is when cast members show their support for their co-stars other projects. Chris Pratt has of course had a huge week with the monstrous success of Guardians of the Galaxy so he is forgiven for ditching tailored suits – I think I like this rugged style better on him anyway – for a more relaxed look at the LA premiere of Aubrey Plaza’s Life After Beth. Plaza has been making some interesting red carpet choices recently and this floral lace Valentino frock is another one I love as both Plaza and her character April Ludgate continue to reign supreme here at TV Ate My Wardrobe.

Kate MaraThe color and cut of Kate Mara’s dress is pretty much my ideal (yellow is an ultimate clothing weakness). Paired with shades, a Coach bag, white Jil Sander buckled loafers and an iced drink makes effortless summer in the city styling.

taylor swiftTaylor Swift has turned leaving the gym into something of a catwalk and she delivered when visiting The Tonight Show earlier this week in a Bec & Bridge dress that is giving me all the long legged envy. Also the ability to walk in super stacked Prada sandals without stumbling/falling into an embarrassing heap. Still not sure about the shaggy, voluminous hair as it’s looking a touch bad ’80s, however the dash of pink lip color avoids being too matchy matchy with the similar shade on the dress. Jimmy continues the trend for striking purple ties this week.

It was announced earlier this week on Buzzfeed that the Veronica Mars team are coming back with a web series and creator Rob Thomas explains it “will have more in common with Party Down tonally, but it will be about Ryan Hansen, or at least a version of Ryan Hansen, deciding to capitalize on the current Veronica Mars heat to get his own series on the air.” This is terrific news as I need to find something to fill the Party Down hole in my life; Ryan Hansen shared a sneak look at what we can maybe expect from this show on his Instagram and it is glorious.

Kerry Washigton and Kristen BellOh hey, Veronica Mars! Kristen Bell with a lovely bouquet of flowers and a rather fetching companion at the HFPA Grants Banquet in LA. Kerry Washington’s strapless Mary Katrantzou floral number is sweet without entering saccharine territory; pairing it with pumps that have colorful edge makes me so happy. No beige shoes here.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

8 Aug

The second season of Orange is the New Black was released on Netflix two months ago and it is still dominating discourse; this week’s “Out of the Box” includes creator Jenji Kohan as a cover star and the cast at a panel event- also check out this conversation with Laverne Cox. Plus we have other magazine covers to discuss, a Mad Men pair working on another project and effortless street style. All in all this is a very colorful edition of “Out of the Box” from H to T (head to toe for those non-America’s Next Top Model viewers).

Jenji KohanThe Hollywood Reporter produced two covers for their “New Disrupters” feature and while one provided jokes aplenty on Twitter thanks to Nic Pizzolatto’s critic ire and self-serious posing (Emily Yoshida’s Preserve model comment is spot on), it is Jenji Kohan’s stunning head shot and super colorful hair that really stands out. The studio shot photos are equally delightful as the leather jacket isn’t trying to portray ‘bad boy realness’ like this one and the print wrap dress paired with polka dot strappy heels are as fun as this shoot is. This isn’t to say that Kohan’s interview is fluff, far from it and it is one of the most honest I’ve read from someone in her position as she discusses gender inequality, how hard she has worked to get to where she is, issues on the set of Weeds and her current show Orange is the New Black.

Taylor SchillingThis outfit is so perfect and simple; the violet Roland Mouret ‘Timarcha’ dress paired with red pumps is a straight up style victory for Taylor Schilling at a panel discussion for Orange is the New Black this week.

Uzo AdubaAlso going for bold pumps and a purple hue is co-star Uzo Aduba. Instead of going for two block colors for footwear and frock the woven material includes an array of pinks, oranges and greens. It is a super adorable summery frock and while Schilling is killing it, I know which one I would rather wear for a sit down discussion panel.

Chris Pratt EsquireThe man of the hour and while the internet might be reaching peak Chris Pratt due to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy (which I loved) and how everything he does is treated with J-Law levels of adoration (pre-backlash) I am still here for all of this including the September issue of Esquire.

Christina Hendricks and John SlatteryMad Men co-stars Christina Hendricks and John Slattery were in London this week promoting the Slattery directed/Hendricks starring God’s Pocket and it’s always fun to catch up on the Mad Men cast in non-1960s threads. John Slattery has relaxed handsome silver fox dude down and I love Hendricks in this bold striped Vivienne Westwood dress (slightly related – there is a boutique I visit often just to peruse their Vivienne Westwood collection and look longingly at the fantastic necklines/colors). Hendricks gets extra points for the pop of lip color and Joan-esque updo.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonSwapping the red carpet for a pair who is the epitome of cool summer in the city chic with Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger. Kruger is a sartorial queen both in couture and regular day wear like this floral strapless dress and sandals. Jackson’s rocking a not too deep-V, the perfect amount of beardy goodness and classic red Ray-Ban wayfarers.

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

11 Jul

Reactions to Emmy nominations, magazine editorials and cover stories are all part of this week’s edition of “Out of the Box” as the summer months continue to bring an eclectic mix to this column.

OITNBFor all the Emmy omissions that gave me rage face (The Americans, Tatiana Maslany, The Good Wife in the drama series category), I couldn’t stay mad for long thanks to the Orange is the New Black recognition with 12 nominations (and 5 of those across acting categories). The OITNB Twitter account posted this fun picture of the cast celebrating and while it is somewhat jarring to see actors in their working environment in regular attire, it is also a pleasure to see them like this.

Mindy KalingSadly not an Emmy nominee, instead Mindy Kaling looked incredible at 5.30 in the morning as one of the Emmy nomination announcers. Despite the early call time, Kaling doesn’t shy away from bold color and this red Escada dress is extra striking when paired with aqua blue pumps. I don’t think I’ve ever looked this good at this time in the morning.

Liv Tyler Violet GreyEmpire Records is the movie I watched on repeat in the summer of 1999 and I’m surprised this VHS didn’t end up an unplayable mess. Like a toddler with their favorite animated movie I couldn’t get enough and from that moment Liv Tyler earned super cool status points even if she fancied Rex Manning and couldn’t see the super hot cardigan wearing A.J. right in front of her. Anyway, I digress and what I’m trying to say is I’m so happy to see Liv Tyler on The Leftovers even if she is giving me all the hair envy. Tyler is also featured in the July issue of The Violet Files  on the beauty website Violet Grey and she is interviewed by fellow actress Eva Mendes. The outdoor shoot is really fun and has a somewhat 90s quality to it. I blame the blanket.

Lizzy CaplanLizzy Caplan looks very cool (even if she has the air of someone waiting to get picked up to go for lunch somewhere fancy) in a Victoria Beckham dress in the July issue of Vogue and this gives me the opportunity to a) cheer Caplan’s Emmy nomination and b) give another signal boost that Masters of Sex is back on Sunday.

Chris PrattChris Pratt’s Entertainment Weekly front cover is adorable and slightly silly, which is just the way I like to think of Pratt. This year has been pretty epic for Pratt what with The Lego MovieGuardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, which he is currently shooting. Not to mention Parks and Recreation and even though I know there’s a (CGI) raccoon in Guardians in my mind this is one of the many Pawnee raccoons that torment the residents of this town.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Feb

New York Fashion Week started yesterday and we will be covering that in all its glory next week, especially as most shows are taking a couple of weeks off for Winter Olympics. For this edition of “Out of the Box” we’re going to be taking a look at a couple of the red carpet events from this week before we cover both the runway shows (fantasy costuming ahoy!) and those attending.

Anna FarisThis is easily the sunniest red carpet I have seen for sometime and it makes sense that it’s for The Lego MovieIt helps that both Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have opted for darker attire otherwise we might get blinded and Faris’ gingham Tanya Taylor black strap crop top and skirt is perfect for this afternoon event. It might veer towards office wear if it was missing the crystal embellishments and you know if your office is cool with crop tops. It avoids that and it’s a super cute outfit for this premiere.

Natalie Dormer InStyle Roksanda IlincicNatalie Dormer covers up the recently shaved part of her head with a simple sweep of her hair – a more sophisticated comb over and while I would have loved to have seen a repeat of her SAG Awards hair styling, this is also pretty fantastic. The Roksanda Ilincic short sleeved dress is inspired by Josef Albers bold color-block artwork which is very much on point with art and fashion sharing a stage at the moment. It’s a really great look and the midi-length is appropriate for the InStyle pre-BAFTA “The Best of British Talent” party.

Brie Larson capeIt’s been a good week for Brie Larson as she not only features on the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue cover, but she was also honored at the 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. I really like Larson’s slightly different approach to the red carpet and this Louis Vuitton Resort 2014 ensemble is an instant winner thanks to the cape factor and I love the combination of yellow, green and blue tweed on the dress. While I think towering heels do add something to an outfit, I also understand the pain factor so I’m very much into the brogues that Larson is wearing. It’s relaxed, but still super stylish.

Diane Kruger Peter PilottoSo we’ve got one event/look from NYFW sneaking in and that’s Diane Kruger at the Peter Pilotto for Target launch party wearing one of the outfits from the collection and showing off the trademark color and pattern fusion. Getting Kruger to showcase this design with contrasting flowers in bold color and the black and white sleeves is good move, though I’m not entirely sure if I could pull this off. I’d definitely be willing to give it a go, but as I mentioned above I’d probably not do so well in the towering strappy pumps.
