Out of the Box: Look of the Week

23 Oct

The red carpet is awash with bold looks this week from PaleyFest, the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards and a variety of other events delivering sartorial highs.

Tatiana MaslanyAs promised here is Tatiana Maslany at the Orphan Black PaleyFest panel wearing a fabulous Roksanda ruffled jumpsuit with color clashing red pumps. This is one way to brighten up a classic look with excellent results.

Diane Kruger and Zachary QuintoAnother jumpsuit twist with Diane Kruger sporting a quilted look from the Balmain x H&M collection event. I have a feeling this might be a Magical Fashion Unicorn situation with Kruger and it falls into my own personal ‘jumpsuits are awkward’ category. Very much into Zachary Quinto’s chevron sweater and they look like they’re attending a super hip party in the 1970s, which might include a bowl of keys.

Laverne CoxA gold pleated sparkly treat from Laverne Cox wearing Alice + Olivia at the One Life/Live Them event and this is getting added to the festive party ideas list. It was announced this week that Cox is going to star in the new Rocky Horror Picture Show TV remake and I am suddenly more interested in this project.

Olivia WildeTake two for Roksanda this week and another signature color blocking delight. Olivia Wilde also choose to give the outfit an extra pop of wow with red pumps; she balances the look out by opting for minimalist makeup and accessories at The Headstrong Project’s 3rd annual Word of War event in New York.

Ashley MadekweNow entering the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards section kicking off with Ashley Madekwe in Calvin Klein Collection teaming leather with what looks like a sweater and I am so here for this mix of edgy and comfy. So happy sweater season is firmly here.

Alicia VikanderAlicia Vikander is serving up casual cool in, you guessed it Louis Vuitton – the current print ad campaign is fabulous – and this is one fashion partnership I can’t get enough of. And now I’m left wondering what Raf Simons departure will do in regards to JLaw and the HUGE final Hunger Games press tour, which is fast approaching.

Ahna O'ReillyPow! Ahna O’Reilly in what would be an ideal (if a little on the nose) dress for something like Comic-Con and it also works like a super fun charm at this celebratory event.

America FerreraRed shoes are so on point this week with America Ferrera pairing her patent Kurt Geiger pumps with electric blue Novis and all these bright and bold “Out of the Box” looks have put me in a wonderful mood.

Elle Style Awards 2015

25 Feb

Okay so award season isn’t quite over as UK Elle held their annual Style Awards in London last night. You might think we have red carpet fatigue but thankfully there are plenty of spectacular and eyebrow raising outfits on display with pink tones ruling the night.

Diane Kruger ElleStarting with Diane Kruger in Chanel and this is another ensemble that falls into ‘magical fashion unicorn‘ territory as I’m not sure there is anyone else who could pull of this amount of multi-textured soft pink without looking like a bathroom accessory. Kruger won Best Actress and new co-star Bryan Cranston presented her with the award. I am still sad The Bridge got cancelled.

Rebel Wilson

Another winner on the night in both the awards and dress stakes; Rebel Wilson picked up the Rising Star accolade and this Eloquii frock is incredible in color and shape.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Gwendoline ChristieThis is where things get a little more bonkers and Gwendoline Christie’s Giles ensemble is batshit but brilliant. Maggie Gyllenhaal looks delightful in salmon custom Roland Mouret while receiving the award for Best TV Actress and her portrayal of Nessa Stein on The Honourable Woman.

Laura JAcksonPresenter Laura Jackson is also pretty in pink (yeah I went there) and this is a beautiful dress.

RoksandaDesigner Roksanda Ilincic is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite – you should have seen my super uncool reaction when I walked past her store at the weekend – and here she is showing off one of her many stunning color block designs.

Taylor SwiftMoving on from the pink beauties to a dress I’m still not sure about; the color is stunning and this Julian Macdonald dress is certainly a departure from the usual super girly frocks Taylor Swift favors. It might be the hair style or that this looks like something her BFF Karlie Kloss would wear that’s keeping me on the fence. Part of me hopes Swift had a conversation with Maggie Gyllenhaal about the scarf she may or may not have left at her house.

CaraCara Delevingne is letting the vampy black Morticia Addams elegant look work for her.

Sai BennettA smidge saloon for Sai Bennett however the Mr Selfridge star is pulling it off and shows how a fantastic haircut and red lip color can really boost an outfit up a few notches.

 

Best of Elle’s Annual Women in Television Celebration

14 Jan

Lena Dunham covers the Elle Women in Television issue (out now) and last night the magazine hosted their annual event celebrating this issue and the many amazing women working in the television industry. Patterns and color aplenty!

Lena ElleThe lady of the hour and Lena Dunham floral Prada works like a charm as does the slicked back bob, smoky eyes and pink lip color.

Juliette LewisMore winter florals on display and Juliette Lewis is stunning in this beautiful dramatic skirt and high neck (nearing turtle territory) black sleeveless top.

Ellie Kemper and Gillian JacobsSo I’m a little on the fence with Gillian Jacobs crop and skirt combo, but Ellie Kemper is slaying it in red lace (more florals). A very cute pairing nonetheless.

Tracee Ellis RossThe scarlet dress trend continues as does Tracee Ellis Ross’ winning red carpet style.

Yara ShahidiTracee Ellis Ross’ Black-ish teen co-star Yara Shahidi is another doing the bold color patterned skirt with aplomb. Not so sure about open toed boots, but overall this is a very fun look.

Cat DeeleyCasual chic from Cat Deeley and I am coveting her Beetlejuice-esque blazer hard.

Constance ZimmerConstance Zimmer’s frock is ticking all the boxes of a perfect not too fancy, but still fancy enough dress – collar, belted and fun print (floral once again). Also bonus red lipstick points are awarded.

Xosha RoquemoreThe Mindy Project’s Xosha Roquemore is a vision of black and white outfit goodness with another crop top I find myself drawn to.

Elle groupClosing things out with a fun group shot with recent Golden Globe winner and Transparent creator Jill Soloway along with Glitterish’s Alison Sudol (from Transparent), Sia in striking orange and Whitney Cummings rocking a starry sky print dress.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

24 Oct

“Out of the Box” is serving up an almost all Elle Women in Hollywood rundown with a bonus fantasy casting prospect courtesy of the GQ Gentlemen’s ball. There’s a shift into fall threads and a whole lot simple designs with a twist sticking with a blue/black/white color palette. Oh and the event was in association with Calvin Klein, this is pretty much what most attendees are wearing.

Lizzy CaplanLizzy Caplan’s color block big collar number is like the Calvin Klein sporty twist on this Louis Vuitton outfit Michelle Williams wore to the Cabaret opening night. The zip details give it a playful edge and it’s a super cute dress.

Ashley MadekweWearing a Calvin Klein LBD with a difference thanks to the addition of a metallic bib is Ashley Madekwe and this is another stunning simple look with a slight edge.

Kerry WashingtonMore dramatic zip detail and an even more dramatic neckline, which looks like the fanciest serviette; Kerry Washington is totally pulling off a dress that might be too much for others. The dash of blue eye makeup doesn’t delve into matchy matchy territory and I love her oxblood nail color next to navy of the dress.

Tina FeySo we’ve had a LBD with a twist and now here’s just a simple and effective LBD from Tina Fey.

Brie LarsonAnd another very simple outfit from one of the cover stars of the Women in Hollywood issue of Elle and Brie Larson hits one of my sweet spots for a fancy(ish) pants event as I’m a sucker for the menswear influence (owning a really good lady tux is the dream)The only thing that doesn’t quite work is going full monochromatic with the Louboutin pumps (which are a slightly different shade of white).

Joshua Jackson and Taylor KitschI would make a #TrueDetectiveSeason2 gag here if one of them wasn’t probably/definitely been cast, but if someone could cast ‘Grizzly McBeardy’ Andrew Garfield, this dashing and well tailored Joshua Jackson and a very Riggins looking Taylor Kitsch in something then I would be thrilled. Make this happen casting people. Oh and maybe trim Andrew Garfield’s beard down just a smidge (okay a few inches). For now we have this excellent image thanks to the GQ Gentlemen’s Ball.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

24 Jan

January isn’t just a month of award season shindigs; no it’s also the time to see what films might feature in the next award season as many filmmakers and actors flock to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. The red carpet here is less floor length gown and more tights and boots, which to be honest is more my speed. This week’s Out of the Box is looking at the winter fashion on display as well as the Elle magazine Women in TV celebration that took place in LA on Wednesday featuring some of the cover stars.

Elisabeth Moss SundanceElisabeth Moss has been killing it on the red carpet, wowing at the recent Golden Globe Awards and now wearing pretty much ideal outfit at the Sundance premiere for “The One I Love.” Tights, super cute ankle boots and a winter floral dress are a winning Sundance combination and the film has been well received (also starring Mark Duplass and Ted Danson). This is definitely the best haircut that Moss has had – yay short hair – and the dash of pink lipstick adds a pop of color to this look.

Elijah Wood Sundance 2014We love a good pea coat here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and Elijah Wood is rocking a classic navy blue at a Game of Thrones Sundance soiree (Big Boi from Outkast hosted). This outfit is both stylish and functional and no one pulls off the sweater/shirt combo as well as the diminutive star.

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson SundanceDiane Kruger laughs in the face of the freezing cold weather in a Ports 1961 creation and it’s all about the layering; belted tweed waistcoat, black jeans, boots, collarless white shirt and a stunning camel coat draped over her shoulders. The Chanel purse and Joshua Jackson add that little something extra to this winter warming appearance. It’s the perfect amount of Sundance chic without looking too try.

Zooey Deschanel and Mindy KalingMoving on to warmer climates with Zooey Deschanel and Mindy Kaling at the Elle magazine “Women in TV” celebration (they’re both cover stars). Deschanel is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress and while I’m not in love with the sheer sleeves, the polka dots instantly cancels this out. Kaling’s pink lip color is on trend and the black Badgley Mischka frock looks really great on her.

Uzo AdubaI finally started Orange is the New Black this week (I know) and after two episodes I’m totally all in. The cast feature in the Elle ‘Women in TV’ issue and Uzo Aduba looks fantastic in a super feminine lace frock at the event celebrating this publication.
