Best of the Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet: Tuxes, Print and Everything Else

11 Jan

Rounding off our initial Golden Globes red carpet coverage with a whole lot of dudes in tuxes plus some other frocks which don’t quite fit into sparkles, bold block color or black and white categories.

Oscar Isaac GG*waves back* Oscar Isaac really is the man of the hour and not only does he look handsome as hell in custom Rag & Bone, the curl and beard level is great AND he won for Show Me a Hero. Nothing bummed me out quite as much as the end of this David Simon miniseries and I mean that as a testament to the performance and the story. Plus Isaac managed to work a mustache and dad jeans. Not an easy task.

Jon HammAnother winner from the night from both a style and award perspective; Jon Hamm you are a dreamy delight.

David OyelowoDavid Oyelowo was a constant highlight on last year’s awards campaign and he defies my sentiment that we were just going to get a whole lot of standard tuxedos in this purple affair.

Aziz AnsariAziz Ansari is another dude we can count on as he goes for a muted twist on plaid.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne is also part of the fun suit clan and this Alexander McQueen subtle polka dot number is no exception. The lean is very much in full operation.

Rami Malek and Christian SlaterCrush from the mid-90s and current crush both looking mighty fine all suited and booted. The cast of Mr Robot is one stylish group.

Judith Light#LadySuitWatch2016 kicks off to a great start with the always amazing Judith Light.

Cate BlanchetThis Givenchy frock has a slight boudoir air about it on the sweeter end of the scale to Caitriona Balfe and this might be a Cate Blanchett magical fashion unicorn scenario.

Maggie GyllenhaalNot a whole lot of pattern on the Golden Globes red carpet this year and Maggie Gyllenhaal gets more 30s inspiration in this beautiful Marc Jacobs dress.

Maura TierneyI heart everything about Maura Tierney so I was very pleased to see her win and that she wore her glasses up on stage.

TransparentThis seems like the best way to finish today’s Golden Globes red carpet coverage with a whole lot of Transparent infused chaos.

Oscar 2015 Red Carpet Highlights Part 2 – Classic (with a twist)

23 Feb

The Oscar red carpet rundown continues (Part 1 is here) and here are some stunning takes on classic black and white designs (with some blue thrown into the mix).

LupitaLast year Lupita Nyong’o dominated award season and became the red carpet queen. Even when she isn’t nominated she still makes a jaw dropping entrance in a Calvin Klein Collection pearl dress.

Meryl StreepMeryl Streep not only had one of the reactions of the night (see end of post) but this is quite possibly my favorite ever Meryl Oscar look (and there have been many) in custom Lanvin. The tuxedo jacket kicks it off and the rest is just as chic.

Margot RobbieThis is somehow both demure and super sexy. Plus Margot Robbie’s Saint Laurent manages to incorporate a sheer element that doesn’t make me sigh with sadness. Amazing crimson lip color bonus points.

Reese WitherspoonThe #AskHerMore campaign is something I am all for (yes I am aware this might sound contradictory while I write this roundup) and the Fug Girls (Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan) eloquently sum up how I feel about Reese Witherspoon not answering the ‘who are you wearing?’ standard Q “#askhermore is great, but it’s ALSO okay to ask/say who you’re wearing. You got it for free. It’s a transaction. Tip your server.” Reese, your Tom Ford dress is stunning as was your performance in Wild.

Sienna MillerA beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown for Sienna Miller with bow and sequin detail.

Cate BlanchettAs with Lupita, Cate Blanchett is a winner from last year doing the presenter version of a stunning gown. The Maison Margiela Couture dress by itself would veer towards classic but dull and it is the Tiffany & Co necklace that really lets this outfit sing.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne is adorable as seen here and when he won Best Actor. He also continues to wow with his suit choices and for the Oscars Redmayne wears Alexander McQueen, as does Hannah Bagshawe making this ‘His and Hers High Fashion.’ Plus there is only a slight hint of the Redmayne lean.

Leaving you with this while I catch up on sleep:

Best of the 2015 BAFTA Red Carpet

9 Feb

Award season stretches for months and we’ve covered a lot of red carpet events here at TV Ate My Wardrobe; with the Oscars so near it means certain dresses are being saved for the last and biggest hurrah so the BAFTAs tends to suffer. This is not to say the red carpet is awash with blah as there are plenty of style highs from last night’s awards, but you can tell some are saving the wow entrance for two weeks time.

Reese Witherspoon BAFTAReese Witherspoon switches things up from cute and sparkly at the pre-party to this plunging purple sexy Stella McCartney gown.

Monica Bellucci and Lea SeydouxWe’re going to see a lot more of Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux on the red carpet when Spectre comes out at the end of the year and if it is anything like this then we are in for a treat.

Amy AdamsWhile I might be slightly distracted by the mustard coat in the background, Amy Adams is striking in custom white Lanvin. What really makes this look is the beaded detail and tassel belt (which I would not be able to stop twirling).

Julianne MooreI’ve been going back on forth on Julianne Moore’s Tom Ford gown as I love the color and velvet, but my aversion to chokers thanks to 90s flashback horrors is making the collar detail not so appealing. But Moore does look fantastic particularly while clutching her BAFTA so I couldn’t leave her off this list.

Keira KnightleyI love a tea length frock and Keira Knightley’s floral Giambattista Valli is delightful.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw BAFTAAnother sumptuous pastel gown for Gugu Mbatha-Raw this time in Prada and despite the Hathaway boob dart issue this is a beautiful look.

Rosamund PikeRosamund Pike’s award season style has been a bit hit and miss and at the BAFTAs she plays it safe in black Roland Mouret; it’s nothing to go crazy for but she does look good.

Felicity Jones BAFTAA Christian Dior Couture double for Felicity Jones this weekend and while it doesn’t hit the heights of her Golden Globes Dior it captures Jones’ classic and romantic style.

Hayley AtwellThe sheer trend is one I am not too fond of, but when polka dots are featured it makes me more inclined to like it and as presenter attire this is ideal. Continuing to adore all things Hayley Atwell.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne continues his winning streak in another fantastic velvet suit. This time it is a midnight blue Armani and wife Hannah Bagshawe wears an incredible Valentino gown; only a slight hint of the lean.

James McAvoy and Anne Marie DuffWhile Anne-Marie Duff’s gown is a tad bridal (and I need some inspiration in this area so thank you) I just couldn’t resist this super adorable shot of Duff with husband James McAvoy.

Best of the 2015 SAG Awards – Black, White and Shimmer

26 Jan

Welcome to Part 2 of the SAG Awards coverage and while color was a big trend there was plenty of fantastic black, white and sparkly gowns on display. Check out our faves below.

Viola DavisViola Davis won for How to Get Away with Murder and did so in a stunning custom MaxMara halter gown in one of the best looks of the night.

Sarah PaulsonA surprising turn from Sarah Paulson in black and white Giorgio Armani. Surprising in that it manages to look different to a lot of other red carpet attire without landing in the usual ‘huh’ spot Paulson favors.

Joanne FroggattJoanne Froggatt does the whole black mermaid gown thing but what elevates this Honor gown is the pointed bodice.

Lorelei LinklaterA very different black Honor gown for Lorelei Linklater and I love the gothy vibe and bell sleeves. This looks like something April Ludgate would wear to an awards show and I cannot wait to see what Lorelei will wear to the Oscars (and what color hair streak she opts for). Bonus red lip color points also awarded.

Maggie GyllenhaalMaggie Gyllenhaal’s custom Thakoon white gown is very Nessa Stein and I love that her Honourable Woman character’s style is sneaking in on this red carpet.

Chelsea PerettiNew favorite couple alert! Chelsea Peretti’s midnight blue Rubin Singer gown has a gold shimmer and Jordan Peele’s all black suit perfectly complements the look without going matchy matchy.

Amy Poehler and Natasha LyonneAnother perfect pair and both are going for the beaded sparkle thing with Amy Poehler in Jenny Packham and Natasha Lyonne in custom Proenza Schouler. Fun shenanigans look like they are being had.

Reese WitherspoonOff the shoulder was a big trend at the SAGs with plenty opting for color and asymmetric; Reese Witherspoon avoids looking bridal in custom Giorgio Armani adding sparkle with the sequin diagonal strip.

Kelly Macdonald and Gretchen MolBoardwalk Empire ladies reunion and Kelly Macdonald’s black vintage Moschino is how you do a shorter length at an event like this, even if it does look slightly casual next to Gretchen Mol in an ethereal Dennis Basso silver gown.

Jackie CruzAnother custom Christian Siriano frock for an Orange is the New Black actress and Jackie Cruz is a sequinned gold beauty.

Emmy RossumThis photo doesn’t quite convey how much sparkle there is on Emmy Rossum’s Swarovski crystal infused Armani Privé gown, but she looks stunning nonetheless.

Nikolaj Coster-WaldauSwitching to a couple of fine looking dudes and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wears a tuxedo as well as he does a suit of armor.

Eddie RedmayneDoing the lean! And this time Eddie Redmayne’s choice of suit is a Prada double breasted affair; another super charming approach and style win.

Best of the Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet: Black Frocks, Crop Tops, Tuxes and Everything Else

12 Jan

Rounding out the TV Ate My Wardrobe 2015 Golden Globe coverage with a smorgasbord of style highs with some daring approaches and a whole array of classic looks. Plus a couple of family portraits.

Lorde GGNo I did not think a crop top would pop up on this list, but thanks to Lorde in an incredible Narciso Rodriguez ensemble this is a thing that has happened. I want this jacket in my life.

Claire DanesThis might be down to Danes style blindness but I love this Valentino frock (which Claire Danes referred to as a work of art on E!), well aside from the sheer panel. Ace earrings too.

Jessica ChastainWhile Jessica Chastain’s Atelier Versace gown is giving me all the Amy Adams American Hustle feelings and thereby it isn’t setting the world on fire, Chastain still looks super sexy and incredible.

Gina Rodriguez GGGina Rodriguez follows in the Golden Globe first season award winning group for sometimes teen show affairs – which includes Claire Danes, Keri Russell and Jennifer Garner – and she played it safe in black Badgley Mischka. She looks flawless and I can even see beyond the fringed sheer skirt. As I lamented yesterday I still need to watch Jane the Virgin and her speech was one of the many misty eye inducing moments.

Allison TolmanAllison Tolman opted for a similar shape gown to the one she wore at the Emmys and why not when it looks this good. Great accessory choices and overall styling.

Eddie Redmanye GGEddie Redmayne did not disappoint with his choice of Gucci tuxedo and there’s not a lot of guys who could work the velvet look this well. Love the olive color and cut of Hannah Bagshawe’s frock. Yes the lean is happening.

Jake and MaggieHappy sibling time and the Gyllenhaal’s are a delight. Jake gets beard points and while I think Maggie’s dress would be better in a bolder color (I thought blue whereas Whitney McIntosh suggested green) the Miu Miu frock is still lovely. Maggie Gyllenhaal winning for The Honourable Woman was another excellent speech moment:

“I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately, and when I look around the room at the women who are in here and I think about the performances that I’ve watched this year, what I see actually are women who are sometimes powerful and sometimes not. Sometimes sexy, sometimes not. Sometimes honorable, sometimes not. And what I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in television and in film.”

BoyhoodA celebratory portrait of the Boyhood family and I am all over Lorelei Linklater’s pink dip dyed hair and this is another sheer moment that in a surprise twist is working for me.

Tina and Amy tux heartGoing to end with two of the ladies of the night and the biggest swoon moment came from Tina Fey’s lady tux of amazing. This is hosting attire perfection. Another beautiful blue gown for Amy Poehler.

While it is still up on YouTube here is their searing, hilarious and incredible opening monologue:

Best of the Pre-Golden Globes Parties

11 Jan

Happy Golden Globes Day! It isn’t just about the dresses (and suits) on display from the awards show as there has been a lot of pre-gaming at various events over the past few days. Here are some of our favorite looks including a whole lot of pattern from W Magazine’s Golden Globes celebration and the 2015 BAFTA LA Tea Party.

Diane Kruger MarniDiane Kruger is serving up 1960s perfection in a lilac Marni frock at the party and the leopard-print A.L.C. ‘Davenport’ clutch is the perfect addition to an already fantastic outfit.

Amy Landecker Jay DuplassJay Duplass is wearing a shirt that is stylistically in tune with his character on Transparent in this fun shot with co-star Amy Landecker at W’s Golden Globe celebration.

Tracee Ellis RossThere is something a little upholstery about Tracee Ellis Ross’ dress but this is floral perfection nonetheless. Bonus red lipstick points awarded.

Gina RodriguezMoving on to the BAFTA Tea Party and starting with Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez in a very cute and fun Guishem dress. I’m looking forward to seeing what Rodriguez will wear on the red carpet later and I will also continue to lament the fact I have still yet to watch Jane the Virgin.

Joanne FroggattYes this is a playsuit and while I have my own play/jumpsuit concerns, over the past few months I have warmed to them on others and Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt in Emilia Wickstead is another I find myself liking a whole bunch. The flash of pastel color with the clutch detracts from the slightly blah nude strappy sandals.

Moran AtiasThis is a very delightful look from Tyrant’s Moran Atias with butterflies and plaid from Temperley London at the BAFTA Tea Party.

Gillian AndersonThis reads a little more beach and cocktails than tea party mostly because I think it needs a necklace; however Gillian Anderson is still resplendent in this ensemble.

Jamie DornanAnderson’s The Fall co-star Jamie Dornan shows how to do the suit without a shirt and tie thing with aplomb. The pocket square is a nice touch and while I’m all for beardy goodness this is entering the too grizzly stages.

Eddie RedmanyeEddie Redmayne’s suit game is consistently strong (as consistent as his pose leaning which I can’t unsee since Tom and Lorenzo mentioned it) and his Alexander McQueen electric-blue suit at the BAFTA event is no different. He is definitely my most anticipated dude for his evening.

Kit Harington BAFTAAnd finally wearing something that sits in the middle of Redmayne’s suit and Dornan’s jacket/no shirt and tie is Kit Harington looking far more casual than his Testament of Youth premiere attire from last week.

Come back tomorrow for a whole lot more dress (and suit) analysis.
