Fargo Season 2 Trailer: “This Thing’s Only Getting Bigger”

22 Jul

The year is 1979, the place is Luverne, Minnesota and mustacheless Nick Offerman warns that things are about to spiral for everyone featuring in the Fargo season 2 preview. The new trailer shows off some of the major players and there are plenty of familiar faces; so while I am sad there will be no Allison Tolman, there’s a whole lot of Jesse Plemons to enjoy and it looks like he will be taking the role of accidental and hapless criminal.

Let’s take a moment to take delve into the costuming and the 1970s is a style decade favorite of mine so when I heard this season would be set in 1979 I was thrilled; this trailer does not disappoint and had me clapping with glee throughout at the excellent array of knitwear, synthetic fur lined coats and garish designs. Oh hey Cristin Milioti!

IMG_1434 (1)The real costuming star is Kirsten Dunst and I have a deep affinity with Dunst thanks to a teen repeat watching diet of The Virgin SuicidesBring it On and Drop Dead Gorgeous. I am pleased to see her return to TV after a long time away (she previously had an arc on ER as a homeless teen Doug Ross tried to help as well as various other early roles).

More outwear and layered excellence; even though it is really warm right now this has me yearning for knee high brown boots and a not so incognito attempt at incognito attire.

IMG_1441Plus stripy ribbed sweaters!

IMG_1436Also Landry maybe kills another guy and Jesse Plemons looks even more like Matt Damon now.

IMG_1435And just how did this shoe get up there?

IMG_1442Fargo returns in October and I am so ready. Watch the trailer below and expect plenty more costume chat when it is back.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

9 Oct

Welcome once again to Behind the Insta-Scenes! A new feature offering a roundup of the best behind the scenes photos posted on Instagram from a variety of TV show and personal accounts from the people who are on them. This includes anything from future episode sneak peeks, what’s airing this week, flashing back to the past and general on set (and sometimes off set) antics.

The inaugural Behind the Insta-Scenes post was an all comedy affair and we’ve mixed it up with a couple of shots from some more dramatic shows, plus a directorial debut and this week a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite joined Instagram which is cause for celebration.

Play guess The Good Wife plot from Alan Cumming’s shot of co-star Julianna Margulies wearing an apron and latex gloves while sitting on a tiny plastic chair.

This one from Nicole Beharie seems more clear cut and I don’t think anyone will be too surprised to see snakes on Sleepy Hollow.

Diane Kruger is now on Instagram and she has already delivered on fashion, Pacey and amazing cat photos. The highlight so far is this photo from German themed party Kruger organised for The Bridge crew (oh hey FX please renew this show) after Germany won the World Cup. So adorable.

The second episode of A to Z is on tonight and Ben Feldman’s reminder concentrates on co-star Cristin Milioti; all I can focus on is her amazingly long eyelashes. While I thought the first episode was only okay, I am totally charmed by Feldman and Milioti even if the premise isn’t so promising and so I will definitely keep on watching.

Busy Philipps directed an episode of Cougar Town this week (including her own daughter in the scene above) and she did so in style wearing a vintage JC Penny ’50s dress.

Our weekly installment of Mindy Project set shenanigans has Mindy Kaling learning lines in an Equipment tartan sweatshirt that I really want in my own wardrobe now it is finally cold enough for sweaters.

 

 

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 Sep

Fall TV is back and after the Fox celebration last week, NBC are showing off talent from their current and new shows. Some of these are more likely to be on for longer than others, though none of the new offerings are all that enticing at the moment. Talk show appearances and Netflix launching in France are all on the menu today.

Julianna MarguliesJulianna Margulies tends to make all the right style choices and here she is killing it once again on The Tonight Show in a stunning Pamella Roland frock (yes there are pockets). You don’t get the full effect from this sitting down shot, but the print is a fun take on a traditional silhouette that would have me twirling in the aisles. A good dramatic injection of red lip color and I am so excited about the return of The Good Wife this weekend Sunday. Look out for our costuming/story reactions to the premiere.

Cristin MiliotiI am charmed by both Cristin Milioti and Ben Feldman which is enough to guarantee I will watch the first six episodes of A to Z and I just hope the material will end up matching (or at the very least not wasting) their talents. Milioti has played it cool in the ultimate safe LBD, but she has snazzed the whole think up with a pair of metallic stilettos.

Rashida JonesThis is a very cute outfit that could double for stylish office wear as well as going out material for a relaxed affair like this one. It’s definitely more daytime than evening and the splash of pink lipstick stops this from looking so much like work attire.

RettaThankfully someone is injecting bold color at this NBC event and Retta’s yellow and turquoise dress is just what this red carpet needs. It is fun, summery outfit and maybe it’s not quite the time to ditch bright tones for the fall season.

Taylor SchillingNetflix launched in France this week and some of the Orange is the New Black cast were on hand to promote the streaming service. Taylor Schilling looks incredible in a cobalt-blue Elie Saab. This is when sheer detail really works with just a hint of it near the hemline.

Uzo AdubaUzo Aduba is on a style high at the moment after several NYFW hits and she joins co-star Taylor Schilling in France to promote both Netflix and OITNB. This is a very pretty floral frock (even as it smooshes her boobs up high) and Aduba is working a whole range of looks at the moment from 70s secretary chic to shimmery art deco goodness and now a 50s inspired gown (with added cleav).

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

31 Jan

Switching from red carpets and the many events January has delivered (well aside from one) it’s going to be a costume heavy “Out of the Box” this week as we take a look at The Carrie DiariesHow I Met Your Mother and The Originals.

This is the Time

Prom on The Carrie Diaries didn’t disappoint; so much tulle, color, sequins and pattern. Walt looks pretty dapper in his tux too. As with most of the costuming from this show these pieces aren’t vintage ’80s and both Mouse and Maggie’s dresses are available to buy if you happen to need a prom dress. Hell even Dorrit got in on the whole gown thing and wore bubble gum pink, even if she was doing it for irony. Oh, Dorrit. It’s the last episode of season 2 tonight and it could also turn out to be the series finale as there’s no word on renewal. I hope this isn’t the case as there’s still a lot more life in this show and Walt’s story been an emotional roller coaster that I’m not ready to disembark.

How I met your motherI haven’t seen any of How I Met Your Mother this season as I fell out of love with it a few seasons back, but after seeing so many positive reactions about this week’s episode “How Your Mother Met Me” I dipped back in and I’m so glad I did. Cristin Milioti made me care about a character we didn’t even get to see and by her La Vie En Rose rendition the screen was incredibly blurry. Milioti is just so effortlessly charming and while the long path to unveiling the mother hasn’t gripped me, her performance is the opposite. In the shot above the Mother is wearing the J Crew Majesty pea coat we featured on our wish list a couple of months ago and it looks great on Milioti, love the lighter color.

The Originals 1.12It was a flashback heavy week on The Originals as we ventured back to the start of prohibition; Marcel has just returned from serving in WWI hence the uniform and the tuxedoed Klaus and Elijah are unsurprisingly dapper. So many eras of suits to cover and thankfully not as many awful flashback wigs. When will either this or TVD indulge my love of the ’70s? Then there might be terrible hair.

Taylor SwiftThis one photo is not like the others and yet there’s something just as dramatic about Taylor Swift whipping her hair at the Grammys as she plays the Jake song (or “All Too Well” to give its full name). This stunning gown with bejeweled shoulders is by Alberta Ferretti and it adds well dressed spectacle to this moment. So Taylor you didn’t win, even though for a second you thought you did, but you will always have this moment among all the awkward dancing gifs. I have no rhythm when it comes dancing and so this Tumblr is my new everything.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

20 Dec

‘Tis the season to wear sparkly frocks and after the LBD heavy edition a couple of weeks ago we’re injecting a bit of color and bold patterns into this column.

Kate MaraAfter seeing the new Hobbit movie this week Kate Mara’s J. Mendel dress is giving off elf vibes thanks to two tiered metallic green and ivory leaf detail. Festive feelings are enhanced by the beautiful gold clutch and yet it doesn’t come across as attempting to be all that Christmassy. I still haven’t seen House of Cards (or OITNB, or Arrested Development even though I have Netflix *sigh*) and considering how divisive it has been it’s on my long list of catch-up projects.

Premiere Of Open Road Films' "Justin Bieber's Believe" - ArrivalsKiernan Shipka’s red carpet style has been consistent in its excellence this year (and yes I’m fine that a 14 year-old has way better clothes than me) and this week she looks delightful in RED Valentino. The floral/polka dot crossover is something I raved about with Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2014 collection and this take on it is super cute. One reason why Shipka’s red carpet style is so good is because she dresses for her age and I hope this continues in 2014.

Amy Poehler Alice and OliviaMaybe it’s the time of year and if Amy Poehler wore this in April it would look like a regular dress, as it’s December I’m seeing ‘an angel at the top of the tree’ frock. Now that I’ve written this it sounds bad, far from it and the puff sleeves/A-line design is what’s reading angel to me. It’s icy looking and the black pattern adds to the winter wonderland feel of this Alice + Oliva dress. The bold lipstick is the pop of color this outfit needs.

Cristin MiliotiThe series finale date has been set for How I Met Your Mother (March 31) and I soured on this show long before Cristin Milioti was revealed to be the mother. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate this Peter Pilotto creation and I might have to include it in the superhero couture that began with Olivia Pope’s Rubin Singer gown on Scandal earlier this season. This might have something to do with Milioti’s red carpet pose and it’s definitely one of the most visually arresting dresses I have seen this year. As a very tenuous link and because we said goodbye to 30 Rock this year here is Milioti in one of my favorite episodes (“TGS Hates Women”).
