Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 Feb

A mostly New York Fashion week edition of “Out of the Box” with plenty of famous faces flocking to runway shows to find out what they will be wearing come the next red carpet cycle/in their regular lives – they can probably afford the price tags.

This was going to be an all NYFW offering, but as I didn’t cover the BAFTAs (for other work/travel reasons) I wanted to include a couple of dresses from this event which wowed me.Diane Kruger, Jamie King, Jennifer HudsonIt’s New York in February and temperatures are on the chilly side so a coat casually slung over the shoulders is always a good choice and both Diane Kruger and Jennifer Hudson have opted for this at Jason Wu. If this was me I would definitely struggle with keeping it straight on my shoulders (you should see my oh so wonky gown graduation pictures). This is a fun blend of looks with Jennifer Hudson wearing the very on trend leather, Diane looking cool in cornflower blue and Jamie King rounding out the picture in a dress ideal for a weekend away in the country at Downton Abbey type venue.Claire DanesA beautiful and simple shot of Claire Danes watching the Narciso Rodriguez runway show on Tuesday. Kiernan Shipka, Amadla Stenberg, Marc JacobsThe Marc Jacobs presentation was packed last night and whenever I see a front row like this I just assume that this is the first time most of them are meeting each other. Not the case with our favorite teen BFFs Amandla Stenberg and Kiernan Shipka. Andra Day’s movie themed ensemble is super fun and that’s a whole lot of excellent bold lip colors from Day, Ashley Benson and Odeya Rush.  Amandla StenbergA clearer look at Amandla Stenberg’s fabulous Marc Jacobs ‘Scream Queens‘ skirt – Olivia Wilde wore the dress version recently – and pairing it with sneakers adds to the laid back vibe.Natasha Lyonne and Christina RicciWhile Stenberg’s gone for sneakers (a woman after my own flats loving heart) there are a lot of stacked platforms on display and I’m maybe coveting Christina Ricci’s ‘Edie Mary Jane‘ patent delights. There’s also something a little Wednesday Addams about her whole outfit and I’m so here for Natasha Lyonne’s bold red (pleather?) skirt.Juliet LewisJuliette Lewis looking like the coolest golfer that ever lived at Marc Jacobs. The pants maybe need a little hemming, but as someone who couldn’t see their shoes for the first half of the aughts I am also fine with this.Zosia Mamet - Marc JacobsSee the above comment about the pants and ribbons/ascots/scarves are really making a big swing for Fall 2016 with Zosia Mamet also working prints at Marc Jacobs. Ellie, Zosia, FriedaMore Zosia at the Kate Spade New York presentation – we picked out some outfits for Shoshanna in our Kate Spade Fantasy Costuming piece – and more excellent patterned attire. Posing with Ellie Kemper and Freida Pinto the trio stuck to the monochrome department rather than going for the bright Kate Spade color palette. Zoe Kazan Kate SpadeAdding a splash of color in a super pretty floral ensemble is Zoe Kazan proving that black tights can be worn with something this summer looking. It is still February after all.Zoe KazanMore Zoe Kazan and the Jill Stuart frock she gave a sneak peek look at on Instagram and I feel like I have very similar clothing taste to Kazan; this is right in my dress wheelhouse. And tights. I love tights.Naomie Harris - Michael KorsNaomie Harris was a knockout during the Spectre press tour last year and once again she is killing it at the Michael Kors Collection show in Michael Kors. Pink pumps add a touch of flair to this floral delight.Taraji P. Henson and Zoe KravitzWhile I still haven’t come up with a suitable term to describe something more than #SquadGoals here is the non-selfie version of Taraji P. Henson and Zoe Kravitz on the front row at Alexander Wang still looking super cool. Henson looked stunning in Alexander Wang at the recent Golden Globes and this is brand which suits her style well while avoiding any Cookie comparisons.Julia GarnerAlso at Alexander Wang – Julia Garner somehow looking cute and edgy all at once in leather. No word if she will be back for season 4 of The Americans but no doubt if she is then expect plenty of heartbreak.Alicia VikanderMore leather and Alicia Vikander’s BAFTA Louis Vuitton frock is a weighty 35 lbs. The last three big events has seen Vikander wearing a variety of looks from the brand she models for and I cannot wait to see what they have in store for her a week on Sunday. It’s weird to think award season is almost at an end.Cate BlanchettCate Blanchett also cranks it up a gear for the BAFTAs in a stunning Alexander McQueen dress of two halves and each one is just as spectacular as the other.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

18 Sep

The September event avalanche continues and this week we have a pretty even split between New York Fashion Week and the Toronto Film Festival with a dash of magazine cover beauties to end things on.

Samira Wiley Milly showMalin Akerman, Samira Wiley and Solange are pretty in pink at the Milly by Michelle Smith runway show with bold colors taking this front row by storm. Last week Wiley’s stunning Christian Siriano campaign was unveiled and the OITNB ladies have been celebrating NYFW on and off their set.

Christina Hendricks Naeem KhanIt looks like Kat Graham is contemplating resting her head on the shoulder of Christina Hendricks and I don’t blame her. This is a whole lot of splendid pattern wearing at Naeem Khan with Ashley Greene’s silver stripe pants giving off a David Bowie vibe and I am so here for that. Bonus red lipstick points for Christina Hendricks for a fantastic crimson shade.

Kiernan Shipka and Christina RicciAt the Highline Coach show Kiernan Shipka wears a cute floral blouse showing once again that this brand is perfect for her and Christina Ricci’s sheepskin vest from the Fall 15 collection is something I would very much like in my wardrobe for when it finally gets a bit colder.Danielle PanabakerOn Instagram Danielle Panabaker said she was “feeling very Sex and the City” in this Monse ensemble at the Monse presentation and it looks like a whole lot of Carrie in the skirt with some Charlotte on top.

Dianna AgronMarc Jacobs closed out NYFW with a decadent affair at the Ziegfeld Theater with concessions, a special Playbill and plenty of fabulous clothes. Dianna Agron went with this theme in the form of her Olympia Le-Tan Red Shoes clutch and while her floral frock is really pretty; it is this clutch that I can’t stop looking at.

Diane Kruger TIFFSwitching out Venice for Toronto and in a sea of amazing Diane Kruger looks this sparkly Chanel Couture dress might be my current favorite. Pairing it with red satin Giuseppe Zanotti sandals gives a strong pop of color and this is an all round delight from a TV Ate My Wardrobe style queen.

Diane and Pacey TIFFThe second Diane Kruger ensemble doesn’t quite pack the same punch but I’m here for the sparkles, strappy sandals and her oh so handsome date. And Kruger’s hangover confession on Instagram has me both chuckling and wishing I could pull something like this together after a heavy night.

Elisabeth MossThis shade of green is fantastic on Elisabeth Moss and she has been killing it on the red carpet at TIFF. The extra oomph from the blue pumps rather than going for safe beige makes me so happy.

Alicia VikanderAt the HFPA/InStyle TIFF party Alicia Vikander wore all Louis Vuitton (she is one of the new faces of the brand after all) and does a good job of showing why in a studded tweed frock. Vikander is probably going to be gracing a lot of red carpets and award shows; something I am beyond fine with because she is both a very fine actress and her sartorial risk taking means we shouldn’t get bored of her by the time the Oscars roll around.

Clemence PoseyClémence Poésy looking cool as fuck in an outfit that is pure relaxed chic.

Empire THREmpire won’t be winning Best Drama at the Emmys this weekend after a somewhat surprising nomination snub, but they are slaying the cover of The Hollywood Reporter and Taraji P. Henson has a strong chance of getting a Cookie win. Somehow Jussie Smollet is pulling off the very shiny suit he has been given and this is such a fun colorful image with Taraji rightly drawing focus.

Lupita VogueGet ready for so much Lupita Nyong’o in the coming months and December is going to be such a good red carpet month with the Star Wars press tour and all the pre-awards posturing. This Vogue cover is so striking and I’m so glad they’ve gone with such a plain background because Lupita really shines. The gold Valentino Haute Couture gown is spectacular as is the rest of the photo shoot.
