A slightly quieter week between the big events and with everyone heading down to Sundance expect a lot more knitwear and coats from the next column; considering how cold it is right now I am so ready.
On the menu today there’s the Elle ‘Women in Television’ celebration, even more TCA and various other public appearances that deliver sartorially.A casually slung coat and one this fabulous is a style weakness of mine and throwing it over the top of pants – which do need hemming – is even better. Shailene Woodley is giving off super cool vibes and at least she doesn’t have to wear that Fendi sweater for Elle on this occasion.
All the red lipstick points get dished out here too.Constance Zimmer in a St John Knits blouse that is giving me all the Joan Watson feelings and she’s giving a classic outfit choice a colorful and shiny oomph with her bold pink lip and silver Aldo pumps.A lesson in how to do matchy matchy without looking over coordinated at the Big Little Lies TCA session last weekend. Zoë Kravitz was our favorite of the Elle covers this month; she’s also crushing it here in red Alexander Wang.I think you might know what I’m going to say about Mandy Moore in REDValentino at the NBC TCA day and yep I would prefer this dress if the top half wasn’t sheer. BUT I do love the super colorful pleated skirt, red pumps and light pink lipstick. Plus I am pretty much obsessed with everything Moore wears on This is Us.Staying with This is Us and it has been renewed for not one but two seasons. This is a show I like a lot and it is nice to have something this sentimental on TV right now. Plus it gives us two more seasons of Sterling K. Brown.
Also, keeping with the bold color theme and as someone who has way too many stripes in their closet (and I bought another one last weekend) I am very much here for Susan Kelechi Watson’s sweater.And in this week’s #LadySuitWatch2017 Melissa McCarthy also takes the TCA bold color challenge and puts her very own memorable spin on it all.
Before the holidays I stumbled upon the Literary Gift Company and for all your book themed apparel/stationary it really is a treasure trove. Long story short, but Naomie Harris in this Disaya calligraphy print dress feels a little like the luxury fashion version of this, so of course I love it.
Aidy Bryant looks fantastic in a very pretty floral Tanya Taylor frock while appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
It also turns out that I have the same glazed look drunk face as Bryant. As can be seen here.
Okay so small disclaimer; this is not a look from this week. In fact this outfit is worn by Issa Rae in the Insecure pilot back in October and this is both a chance to make up for not including it back then (I have a good excuse in that I had only just got back from honeymoon) and shamelessly plug some work in other places.
This incredible ensemble is one I discuss in this week’s TV and Style column over at The Observer as part of an overall conversation on leopard print – which we featured a lot of recently – and this Stella McCartney wildcat collection has appeared on at least four shows now.Ending this week with Donald Glover giving full flames emoji in Gucci for this Wired profile. In the piece he talks about 30 Rock and why he wanted to write for TV
“I decided I wanted to write for television because of Tina. She was always so happy, and I was like, I want to be happy like that too.”
And FX president John Landgraf shows why so many incredibly creative voices talk so highly of their boss. There’s a level of trust here and this has definitely paid off with Atlanta.
“With Donald, he didn’t always articulate his vision in a way that we could see it, but his passions and ambition were clear. So we felt confident in the story he wanted to tell and how he wanted to tell it.”
