Award season has come to a close and every year it seems to get longer and longer. But I’m okay with that as it gives us plenty to talk about at TV Ate My Wardrobe. Before you know it there will be Emmy roundtable discussions occurring.
First we have the best of the post-Oscars looks from the Vanity Fair party including several switched outfits from the main show so they can party without worrying about anyone stepping on their train. There are also a couple of FX premieres and a flaming hot ad campaign to keep us busy. Switching from the stunning red Armani gown for a fantastic Brandon Maxwell white ladysuit and Stella McCartney platform shoes, which are probably way more comfy than stacked heels. Love this entire look and Viola Davis crushed both her sartorial choices. The Oscar also looks pretty great.I liked, but didn’t love Emma Stone’s gold embroidered Givenchy Art Deco adjacent gown for the main ceremony, which is why I didn’t include it in my gown rundown. But it is a very different story for this second Givenchy ensemble and this slip/blazer combo is giving me so many mid-90s feelings. This outfit is far from fancy enough for the main event and yet it is ideal for celebrating the big win without worrying about delicate beading of her first gown.
This is something I’ve spoken about in previous post-awards discussion as I love a good behind the scenes getting ready diary and Emma Stone did this one for Vogue with her makeup artist Rachel Goodwin. So many Nars products I now want in my makeup bag.
As with Viola Davis, Ruth Negga scored a double style win on Sunday night switching from dreamy red Valentino into a glitzy Oscar De La Renta. While the spill fear is high with all three of these dress changes – so much white – they all make a whole lot of sense in the ‘not having to worry about anyone stepping on the bottom of their dress’ thing.Mindy Kaling gives great floral in floor length Naeem Khan at the VF party and I’m feeling all set for spring (the rain that is pouring down also might have something to do with this).Jon Hamm in a tux is never not great.A post Spirit Awards/pre Oscars night out for Janelle Monáe attending a Chanel party in West Hollywood and stepping outside her signature black and white zone in a very sparkly Chanel tuxedo dress. All the heart eyes for this outfit choice, lipstick and how much Monáe has lit up TV Ate My Wardrobe during award season.Now award season is over it is time to switch the focus back to all the good TV that is premiering in March and April. Sarah Paulson is back on a Ryan Murphy project and at the Feud premiere she looks the retro part in vintage gingham Valentino. FX is having quite the premiere week and at The Americans season 5 event Keri Russell does super sexy ladysuit in lace Gucci and Matthew Rhys mixes casual cool in Rag & Bone (NYFW pays off). Russell’s makeup artist Tina Turnbow gives another fabulous behind the scenes getting ready photo diary and as I mention above I love these extra red carpet details. Also I can’t resist all that eyeliner.
The Americans returns next week (Tuesday, March 7) and you can read my interview with costume designer Katie Irish here.Several of the Moonlight cast were wearing Calvin Klein on Sunday night and after seeing shots on the Calvin Klein Instagram I figured a campaign was imminent; in fact it was out by the time I hit post. These images kept popping up on my Twitter TL all Monday and each time there was a whole lot of face fanning. You can see more of this campaign here and this one of Oscar winning actor Mahershala Ali is a good place to start.
