Out of the Box: Look of the Week

9 Mar

In the first “Out of the Box” that comes after award season it isn’t surprising that it is a quieter and more eclectic week; there’s street style, ladysuits, Paris Fashion Week, magazine covers and other public appearances. The Timeless cast got together in Washington D.C. at the Smithsonian and NEH’s History Film Forum Event. I love this show and the chemistry between the three leads is what makes it a joy to watch; as I’ve already said I really hope it gets renewed and not just so I get new book recommendations and have plenty to write about costume wise.

Matt Lanter and Malcolm Barrett are doing standard panel attire and they look fine, but it is Abigail Spencer’s matching Creatures of The Wind ’60s inspired pattern ensemble that is mesmerizing me. Also please renew this show, NBC.

Ladysuit alert and a fabulous one from Jenny Slate as she goes shirtless and makes me want to use the flame emoji. The tequila confession feels very accurate and I had a friend who broke half her front tooth because of tequila. It is fun and also cannot be trusted.No one does street style while also being a walking advert for their brand quite like Reese Witherspoon. And unlike other celeb lifestyle products (not naming names) this is both wearable and semi-affordable. The Americans returned this week – click here for my review – and Keri Russell has been doing the press rounds including a very fun interview on Live with Kelly and on the same day wearing the same fabulous outfit Russell took part in the AOL Build series (which you can watch below).

Mixing casual cool in an oversized Céline turtleneck sweater – which we have talked about on here before and is definitely the kind of thing I would want to wear every day – with a retro looking houndstooth Prada skirt, sheer pink pop socks and hot pink Manolo Blahniks.

The interview itself is fun covering a range of things about the new season including digging that hole in the S5 finale, how she feels about Elizabeth, the recent political climate, the relationships on the show and what it is like to work with your IRL boyfriend. Entering the portion of this week’s column that is dedicated to black attire and this is the kind of outfit that few can pull off; Kristen Stewart is just the person to make corset pants look effortless. At the Personal Shopper LA premiere Kristen Stewart debuted a killer looking bleach blonde crop, which I have instantly fallen in love with.Also crushing it on the cool levels (as always) is Isabelle Huppert and I’m gonna go all Tyra as she’s doing this from H to T. Those silver tip pumps are a joy and as this is at the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week, Huppert is wearing LV. Huppert is also reigniting my desire to own a leather jacket.Also at Louis Vuitton is Michelle Williams (as one of the faces of the brand this makes sense) and this is a far edgier look than we are used to seeing her in. I am all for a style switch up even if she looks a little stiff, but that might be the March chill rather than the outfit. Love the boots and as always I would suggest a bold red lip.Switching things up entirely at Valentino with all the delicate feminine frills. A trend that could go either way and much like KStew in all things edgy, Kate Mara is the perfect person to wear something that is drape adjacent. Also that is one fabulous collar and we all know how I feel about a detailed neckline. A striking and stripped down Chrissy Teigen cover and her piece on postpartum depression is so important. Chrissy is someone I have very strong good feelings about and it is not just because her cookbook has taught me how to make incredible bacon hash browns.

Best of the 2017 Oscars Red Carpet: Dudes in Suits

27 Feb

Oh hey there! Welcome to part 2 of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s Oscar red carpet coverage and often the suits get relegated to quick round up at the end of a post or lumped in elsewhere. Not this year as there are so many good ones including your classic tuxedo choice and a lot of variation.

For the gowns head heremahershala-aliMahershala Ali has been a regular fixture during award season and he doesn’t just stick to one look switching from white at the SAGs to black last night. Ali’s was the first award of the night and he delivered an incredible speech; he is also the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar and the significance of this right now should not be lost.

Rather than a red carpet shot I wanted to get Ali with is statue and this also gives a good look at his three piece tux and that pocket square, which adds a flash of pattern. tarell-alvin-mccraneyWe’re going to be keeping on the Moonlight theme for the next few photos and it is not just those in front of the camera who pulled out all the stops as writer Tarell Alvin McCraney shut everything down in this all-white ensemble. On a night of many different causes being recognized through pins and ribbons McCraney is wearing Elizabeth Taylor’s original AIDs awareness one; it has a deep level of significance as his mother died from AIDs related complications.

Along with Barry Jenkins they gave one of the most thoughtful speeches of the night when they picked up the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar.andre-hollandAndré Holland gives great classic tux and I really wish there was another season of The Knick.trevante-rhodes-alex-r-hibbert-and-ashton-sandersChiron through ages and the these three Moonlight actors walked the red carpet together and Trevante Rhodes, Alex R. Hibbert and Ashton Sanders all look great in their matching Calvin Klein by Raf Simons suits.

david-oyelowoDavid Oyelowo mentioned during his E! red carpet interview that Dolce & Gabbana always serve him well and he isn’t wrong; love the white jacket with black lapels look.dev-and-his-mumDev Patel gets all the adorable points as he brought his mother to the Academy Awards as his date (she also looks amazing) and he really is a whole lot of handsome in Burberry.riz-ahmedMoving on to the blues and there’s nothing to feel sad about here as super stylist Ilaria Urbinati knows menswear and how to make an impact. Case in point Riz Ahmed in Ermenegildo Zegna.chris-evansChris Evans is also an Ilaria Urbinati client and in a different shade of blue – but just as striking – he’s crushing it in Salvatore Ferragamo.ryan-goslingIf someone is going to wear ruffles and pull it off it is Ryan Gosling and he looks fabulous in Gucci.john-and-chrissyEntering the cute couple zone and as always Chrissy Teigen gives great content by revealing on E! how nervous John Legend is about performing.

Unrelated, but so far I have only made one thing from Teigen’s cookbook and yet I’ve made them twice because the bacon hashbrown recipe is incredible.john-cho-and-kerri-higuchiI was very happy to see John Cho up on stage and yes I still miss Selfie. I really love the simple elegance of his wife, Kerri Higuchi’s floral frock.andrew-garfield-and-sunny-pawarThere are no words to quite explain just how adorable this photo is. Just know that every time Sunny Pawar came on screen the room squealed with delight. This happened a lot.

Best of the 2016 Oscars Red Carpet: Sparkle and Pattern

29 Feb

Welcome to the final hurrah of awards season (well there are also still Vanity Fair after party photos to deal with) and after months of campaigning and many other red carpets the Oscars are here. Now I’m not going to say I was totally disappointed, underwhelmed perhaps as overall the Golden Globes and maybe even the SAGs had more standout dress moments. There was a lot to love this year, but not a whole lot that had that Oscar WOAH. No contenders to the Michelle Williams in yellow Vera Wang from 10 years ago.

There are still plenty of dresses to peruse and welcome to part 1 of our highlights – kicking off with all the sparkly delights.Saoirse RonanSaoirse Ronan delivered the first WOW reaction of the night in emerald Calvin Klein Collection and it is giving me Keira Knightley Atonement dress feelings with a 1970s sequin twist. That is a very good thing.Naomi Watts and Liev SchreiberMore sequins and a gown that looks just as stunning in motion as it does in these posed photos; Naomi Watts is onto a winner in Armani Privé and Liev Schreiber is doing the classic tux thing (for dudes in exciting suits check out the style highlights from the Independent Spirit Awards).Margot RobbiePlunging gold snakeskin for Margot Robbie and this is another dress that is giving off so many 1970s vibes and in not so shocking news I am very much here for this decade’s strong influence.Sandy PowellSound the #LadySuitWatch2016 klaxon and costume designer Sandy Powell (no E! this is not Tilda) does not disappoint in a year when she has been nominated not once, but twice (for Carol and Cinderella – see photos from a Cinderella exhibit here). Amy PoehlerWhen I first saw Amy Poehler in Andrew Gn I snap judgement declared this my favorite ever red carpet look for her and the morning after I still feel the same. Love the embroidery and the drama. Plus a caped sleeve is always going to hit my sweet spot.Alicia VikanderIt has been a season of big hitters for the always fashion forward and adventurous Alicia Vikander so I was a little disappointed with what Louis Vuitton made for her very big night. Don’t get me wrong it is a lovely gown (bubble hem aside), but it’s not the triumphant levels we saw at the SAGs. I feel greedy for wanting more.

I am glad she won (even if it should have been for Ex-Machina) and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she does both on screen and on the red carpet in the not too distant future. Shout-out to the woman in silver sequins in the background as she looks fabulous.Daisy RidleyAnother recent red carpet big hitter and Daisy Ridley crushed the Star Wars press tour on every level. Chanel Couture is a great step although I am not in love with the sheer trim, but Ridley is certainly working the awkward length and gets those all important lipstick points. John Legend and Chrissy TeiganChrissy Teigen posted a photo on Instagram of final Oscar prep which included getting sewn into her dress – standard fancy gown procedure which always has me wondering about trips to the bathroom – and she looks incredible in rose embroidered Marchesa. John Legend as always scrubs up very well.Juliet RylanceAnother incredible embroidered creation and Juliet Rylance’s Temperley London frock gives off a very fresh vibe. Rylance was there with her father Mark Rylance and his Best Supporting Actor speech was one of my favorites from the night. Such grace and humility. Plus that wonderful accent. Now I am also wondering whether we will get any more of The Knick as I have so many hopes for Cornelia.

Stay tuned for part 2 of our Oscar coverage.

Best of the 47th NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet

6 Feb

Award season continues with the 47th NAACP Image Awards and it was a very good night for Empire and Black-ish in the TV categories with American Crime and Scandal also getting some recognition. For a full list of the winners head here.

Some of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s best dressed regulars made an appearance and below are our looks of the night.Viola Davis and Kerry WashingtonWhile neither Kerry Washington nor Viola Davis won Best Actress in a Drama (Taraji P. Henson took home the prize), they both look terrific in white gowns with a sparkly twist. For Kerry Washington it’s a draped neck Victoria Beckham with a sliver of silver and Viola Davis is a vision in a St. John. Excellent purple lipstick to boot.Tracee Ellis RossTracee Ellis Ross is serving up Morticia Addams excellence in Rubin Singer and now that is something I really need to see happen. Ross won Best Actress in a Comedy for Black-ish (yeah I still need to catch up).Chrissy Teigen and John LegendHigh leg slits was a big trend of the night and Chrissy Teigen dishes up sexy and demure in Haney. Lipstick points ahoy. John Legend also scrubs up well and he received the Presidential Award for distinguished public service.SerayahSerayah hits the leg slit, long sleeve and cut out trend trifecta and this all works because this black Philipp Plein gown isn’t fussy in any other way. And there is not a whiff of sheer in sight.Gugu Mbatha-RawCanary yellow is my weakness when it comes to frocks (and most clothing) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw looks fabulous in this one. Yara ShahidiYara Shahidi’s teen sartorial reign continues in this stunning patterned gown and she also got to have a young Liv/adult Liv Scandal reunion. Plus a win for Black-ish as Best Comedy. Michael B. JordanEnding things on a very good and handsome note; while we love it when Michael B. Jordan goes for something a little bolder he also slays in the classics. Jordan not only won Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture, but he also received the Entertainer of the Year accolade. Here’s to another really great year for Michael B. Jordan.

Knitwear, Boots and Coats Galore at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival

25 Jan

In a sea of red carpets at this time of year Sundance stands out because heels are replaced by boots and wool is a predominant fabric. Plus the chance of sheer ruining an ensemble is dramatically reduced. Award season indulges in wish fulfillment aspects of fashion and the fancy pants levels are high; while I love the decadent and intricate details of gowns galore, there is something rather wonderful about the casual cool at the Sundance Film Festival.

What this boils down to is a combination of a several things including a love of all things winter wear – yes I have snow FOMO right now – with a dash of ‘stars they’re just like us’ and the kind of movies that are being showcased. Considering how many different knitted I am wearing right now (including leggings and long bootie socks) combined with how many sweater posts we have produced on TV Ate My Wardrobe it will come as no big surprise that I am in style heaven right now.

Aubrey Plaza and Jenny SlateApril Ludgate was an ultimate sweater queen and there was no doubt that Aubrey Plaza would not disappear from these pages when Parks and Recreation ended. At the Joshy premiere Plaza goes for a cozy ribbed sweater delight paired with skinny jeans, black boots and the always wonderful Jenny Slate. Also killing it with her boots choice, pleated skirt and sweater tee.

Amandla StenbergCeleb style lounges pretty much sound like the best thing especially when warm coats and boots are up for grabs so Sundance has this perk in the bag too. At Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge Amandla Stenberg gives a good style lesson in long dress chunky knits; performing the double of super cozy and funky all at once.

Alison Brie SundanceAlso at the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge Alison Brie shows off fur hooded and toggle coat excellence demonstrating exactly why this is the ideal place for a freebie haul.

Chloe Sevigny and Natasha LyonneGetting whiffs of Grey Gardens and now picturing Chloë Sevigny and Natasha Lyonne as Big and Little Edie as they attend Lena Dunham and Planned Parenthood’s ‘Sex, Politics & Film’ cocktail reception. I mean this as a huge compliment. Sweater heaven continues.

Allison Janney and Sian HederWhere else would you see Allison Janney in green leather pants?! Extra points for the chunky roll neck sweater at the Tallulah premiere. Tallulah writer/director Sian Heder is pretty much wearing my platonic ideal of a casual outfit – boots/tights/striped dress – and I am very much looking forward to seeing this film.

Brianna HildebrandBrianna Hildebrand covers all the coat and patterned shirt bases at the First Girl I Loved premiere. Jeans are once again the pants of choice paired with – you guessed it – black boots.

To avoid this post being an endless scrolling exercise we’ve put the rest of our favorite Sundance looks in the gallery below. Just click on the image for a better look and so many more sweater, outerwear, boots and winter casual attire offerings.

For more Sundance be sure to check back for “Out of the Box: Look of the Week” on Friday and here are some highlights from last year including THAT Coach sweater I am still coveting.
