Out of the Box: Look of the Week

9 Dec

There were a lot of great outfits at the Hollywood Reporter’s celebration of women in entertainment and as there was so many I dedicated a whole post to this event.

There’s more to celebrate on this week’s “Out of the Box” including a fantastic start to Vogue’s 2017 magazine run, a night dedicated to Carolina Herrera, more yellow dress delights and a Mr. Robot family reunion.ruth-negga-vogueVogue kicks off their 2017 issues with this Ruth Negga stunner in Alexander Wang rose print and this is another case where shoulder cutouts aren’t distracting me from how great everything is.

Negga recently appeared in Vogue editorial with Loving co-star Joel Edgerton. Considering how fantastic that shoot was it isn’t surprising they asked Negga to come back in this starring capacity (although the close release between issues made this a happy surprise to see her on the cover).emmy-rossumAn Evening Honoring Carolina Herrera means lots of Carolina Herrera gowns and Emmy Rossum in this black and white gingham number is ticking so many boxes. It also reminds me of Lizzy Caplan’s Lela Rose fave from last year and I am a sucker for this classic picnic adjacent print. emily-robinsonNow for something super pretty and Emily Robinson looks fancy festive party appropriate.jmargGoing for gold and Julianna Margulies is a long time Carolina Herrera wearer and here she is with hot husband (in a fantastic coat) Keith Lieberthal. Great berry lipstick choice to up the drama factor.ryan-gosling-and-emma-stoneAnother perfect La La Land yellow dress reminder from Emma Stone and I am also full heart eyes over this Rochas frock and red lipstick combo. Ryan Gosling is look all kinds of handsome as they both do the hand and footprint in cement thing at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood. mr-robotA picture of Mr. Robot family happiness at the GQ and AG dinner in LA with a whole lot of black and white casual outfit coordinating from Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin and Christian Slater.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

15 Mar

Welcome to this week’s installment of “Behind the Insta-Scenes” and we’ve got sartorial highs, set shenanigans and some very cute animals to share with you.

 

Someone needs to make a movie with these three ladies as triplets. Tom Cullen has already come up with the tagline. Please and thank you.

 

When the Mr Robot dudes go away for SXSW the ladies get their puzzle on.

I love Aya Cash so much.

 

Not one, but three kittens! Thank you Brooklyn Nine-Nine for this furry treat.

 

And not to forget all the dog lovers – Constance Zimmer showing off this little cutie on the set of UnREAL. And now I’m wondering what manipulative role this puppy will be playing.

By now you will probably know how much I love it when co-stars hangout off set and this is the perfect example of that. All the warm feelings

 

Also here for random encounters like this one with Chris Noth walking by the Girls set and getting accosted by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (also understandable).

Best of the Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet: Block Color Party

11 Jan

Oh hey! Fancy seeing you here for more Golden Globes coverage and after the all things that sparkle rundown we’ve got some bold color offerings for you to enjoy.

America FerreraAmerica Ferrera was the first person I saw on the red carpet when I got in from work and I maybe yelled in joy at seeing her in this color (okay I definitely yelled) and it is a Jenny Packham ray of sunshine.

Ferrera was also part of one of the best parts of the show when she presented with Eva Longoria as they called out those who mix them up for other Latina actresses. Oh like how the official Golden Globes Twitter account confused Ferrera for Gina Rodriguez.

JLoJennifer Lopez serving up full Hollywood glamour in a not quite mustard and probably chartreuse caped Giambattista Valli. The Shades Of Blue promos (which featured throughout the show) use of “You Don’t Own Me” reminded me of how much I want a First Wives Club remake staring Ben Affleck’s exes. Make it happen, Hollywood.

Rachel BloomThe Golden Globes have a tradition of giving one award to a lady newcomer (including Keri Russell for Felicity, Jennifer Garner for Alias and last year Gina Rodriguez won for Jane the Virgin) and they repeated this trend with Rachel Bloom and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (on the list of shows I need to catch up on). Both her speech and custom Christian Siriano gown are excellent.

Gina RodriguezLast year Gina Rodriguez went a little safe and sedate; this year she has gone big in Zac Posen and she looks great. Plus, pockets!

Emmy RossumOkay so I definitely feel like I have seen this dress a bunch of times, but Emmy Rossum’s choice of accessories are helping give this Giorgio Armani Prive a boost. It was a quiet year for red on the red carpet especially when compared to last year’s Golden Globes.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

4 Dec

An eclectic “Out of the Box” this week including Star Wars: The Force Awakens pre-premiere press tour excitement, a variety of events and a series of stunning black and white posed shots.

Lupita Nyong'oA Zac Posen dress that sparkles as if it is a starry sky from a galaxy far away (I’ll see myself out) for Lupita Nyong’o first at Bloomingdale’s ‘Force 4 Fashion’ event on Wednesday followed by an appearance on The Daily Show. The dress is low key elegance that turns into a sparkly light up display and I am so ready for this press tour.

Gwendoline ChristieOne of the ‘Force 4 Fashion’ dresses is this stunning Giles Deacon creation; inspired by Captain Phasma and worn here by Phasma herself, Gwendoline Christie. For more incredible photos and a chat about the making of the gown head to Vanity Fair. I love this photo so much I’ve made it my new phone wallpaper; so much power and poise.

Elisabeth MossA cute and simple Peter Pan collared frock for Elisabeth Moss at the IWC Schaffhausen Rodeo Drive boutique opening; an ideal look that can be dressed up or down for day or night. It maybe also slightly resembles the dress worn by me in my Twitter avatar.

Emmy RossumFeeling festive in an all red Salvatore Ferragamo pleated turtleneck dress is Emmy Rossum (in her second appearance this week) at the Godiva ‘Hot Chocolate for a Cause’ benefit. If this wasn’t December this might be too matchy matchy, but it is perfect for a December event like this.

Amy PoehlerAmy Poehler received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week and did so in style wearing a charming winter floral dress. Amy was joined by a variety of co-stars/collaborators to celebrate including beautiful tropical fish Rashida Jones and she’s also showing off the pattern pretty.

Viola DavisInStyle gets their first cover of 2016 – yes it is already 2016 in magazine world – so right with this fantastic beauty shot of Viola Davis. Inside the issue Davis talks about her own style versus Annalise’s and a very refreshing beauty philosophy – “What’s released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness. I’ve never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I’ve been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith.”

Charlotte Rampling and Isabella RosselliniNow entering the black and white section of this week’s “Out of the Box” with Variety’s Actors on Actors‘ conversations following the same model as their Emmy series. The idea of Charlotte Rampling and Isabella Rossellini sitting down discussing anything is exciting enough and this portrait captures them in all their regal glory. Which is perfect considering they are both acting icons.

Elizabeth Banks and Carey MulliganAnother entry in the Variety ‘Actors on Actors’ series and a shot featuring two more TV Ate My Wardrobe favorites; Elizabeth Banks and Carey Mulligan both make really interesting choices in the their work and style. This is no exception.

Amy SchumerThe new 2016 Pirelli calendar photos have been unveiled including this stunning shot of Amy Schumer taken by Annie Leibovitz. Schumer posted the photo on her Twitter with the accompanying words “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman” getting ahead of the comments. Click on the image for a clearer look.

Sadly the calendar is not available to buy and unless you are in the fashion industry it will be hard to get your hands on one. Guess I’ll be sticking with the Countryfile calendar my dad buys me every year instead.

SerenaHere is the April entry and Serena Williams giving off nothing but strong and beautiful vibes. Head to Elle for more entries including Patti Smith and Tavi Gevinson.

Best of the 25th Gotham Independent Film Awards Red Carpet

1 Dec

December is here and a few things are getting kicked up a notch 1) end of year awards, 2) film awards, 3) best of lists and 4) Christmas shopping (okay this last one isn’t all that blog related). Full on awards red carpet season doesn’t start until the new year and this is more of a pre-game kind of showcase as these events don’t call on everyone to be in their fanciest fancy pants. It is also a good time to get some festive party inspiration; I am a fan of the ‘if in doubt where something sparkly’ approach at this time of year.

Getting the December ball rolling is the 25th Gotham Independent Film Awards last night (okay so that was technically still November) hosted in New York City. Spotlight took home two awards for best feature and best screenplay, but it wasn’t just film receiving accolades as Mr Robot (which I still need to watch) won the longform breakthrough series award beating out Jane the VirginTransparentUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and UnREAL. For the full list of winners head here.

Let’s see who impressed us on the red carpet.

Julianne MooreJulianne Moore is serving up the perfect amount of gold sequin and smoky eyes for all things end of year events and while a Saint Laurent frock is way beyond my budget this is definitely the kind of look I will be going for. Plus it has the floaty dress benefit of being able to tuck into any amazing party snacks on offer; in my case this means anything with cheese, jalapeno poppers, sausage rolls and all the mince pies.

Dascha Polanco#LadySuitWatch2015! Dascha Polanco goes for gold in this white ensemble with glitzy flourishes and it works like a charm. Outfits like this require a steady hand or a ban of any dark liquids coming within the vicinity of it.

Abbi and IlanaSame with Ilana Glazer’s spectacular double-breasted jacket dress because I would end up like her character Ilana when she wore something similar on Broad City. Abbi’s dress is simple and chic; the only thing I would switch up is their shoes with each other and red lipstick for both.

Teyonah ParrisEagle-eyed readers will recognize this dress as the same Cynthia Rowley off the shoulder floral frock that Alex Morgan wore to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, but Teyonah Parris also looks stunning in it and I’ve never had a problem with repeats. I’m not too sure about the cut out Marchesa booties with this dress; however they make a change from the strappy sandal approach.

Laura PreponA knockout monochrome gown for Laura Prepon and while I am generally all about reds and berry lip color for this season the coral lipstick is a really great choice here.

Emmy RossumAnd on the mini-frock end of the scale is Emmy Rossum wearing a black and brown jacquard Simone Rocha affair, which wouldn’t look out of place as wallpaper in Benedict Cumberbatch’s 221b Baker Street Sherlock home. This doesn’t necessarily sound like a good thing, but I can assure you it is. Plus those all important pockets.

Glenn CloseGlenn Close forever slaying and delivering caped arrival excellence.

John Slattery and Talia BalsamAppearing just as suave as their Mad Men characters, but with far less furs, facial hair and daughter drama are John Slattery and Talia Balsam.

Mark Ruffalo and SunshineMark Ruffalo’s doing the run of the mill black suit dude wear, but it is his wife Sunrise Coigney who really makes an impact in an unusual and striking burnt orange dress with sheer sleeves I can get on board with.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

24 Jul

A mixture of red carpet, editorial and candid in this week’s edition of “Out of the Box” with super cute summer frocks, an ideal festive party look and a fancy pants suit.

Amy PoehlerJust one week to go before Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is unleashed on Netflix and Amy Poehler’s colorful graphic block ensemble coupled with pink pumps is a treat. And now I’m wondering if her clutch has “Please” on the other side as it matches the font of her book.

Cara DelevingneCara Delevingne model star power means that pretty everything she has worn on the Paper Town promo tour has looked great because she sells it, even if at the same time one of my not so famous eyebrows has been slightly raised. Sparkly long sleeve Saint Laurent may seem more like a dress to save for all those holiday parties come December, but Cara sure as hell looks like she could go dancing at Studio 54 no matter what the season or that it is now a Broadway venue.

Rachel McAdamsA really simple and elegant black Self-Portrait dress for Rachel McAdams at the Southpaw New York premiere and even though it isn’t quite #ladysuitwatch2015 wow, it is still a really great choice. It does resemble an off the shoulder version of the dress she is wearing in the next True Detective and the screen lights up whenever she is on. Basically I want this season to just be McAdams looking for clues with Tim Riggins with a side order of Colin Farrell.

Emmy RossumWearing what is pretty much the ideal summer in the city outfit (would also work for the countryside, maybe beach-adjacent) and Emmy Rossum’s floral frock is delightful.

Michael B Jordan VogueSticking with florals and switching it up as dude attire with Michael B. Jordan crushing it in the August issue of Vogue. Jordan’s red carpet style is never dull as he embraces color and pattern so this Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria is perfect for his bold sartorial choices.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Feb

The Independent Spirit Awards got lost in the Oscar red carpet crazy and because it is one of my favorite red carpet events – there is SO much color and pattern – most of this week’s “Out of the Box” is dedicated to this with a smattering of the post Oscars Vanity Fair party. February is a whirlwind of fancy pants dresses (sometimes literally), so I am glad to round off the month on a high of print and bold tones.

Aubrey PlazaAfter tearfully saying goodbye to TV Ate My Wardrobe style icon April Ludgate it is only right to start with Aubrey Plaza in floral Suno; even though Parks is over it is safe to say Plaza will be gracing these pages a whole bunch.

Jenny SlateI have strong feelings about Jenny Slate, Mary Katrantzou and the color yellow; together this is perfection. Related – I have spent the past few days saying “look like dis” all thanks to this amazing Kroll Show sketch.

Ava DuVernayCombining pockets, print and color for one exceptional ensemble is Ava DuVernay.

Gillian JacobsIt is a cute sundress palooza and Gillian Jacobs is an “Out of the Box” staple when it comes to outfits like this Preen frock and red pumps.

Cate BlanchettCate Blanchett is a style queen and she gets the laidback vibe spot in a heart fluttering Schiaparelli Couture.

Aja Naomi KingMore glorious yellow from How to Get Away with Murder’s Aja Naomi King with a dash of snakeskin pattern pumps. The big question is after ditching HTGAWM mid-season should I watch last night’s finale?

Julianne MooreOne reason I love the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet so much is it is the optimal point of fun and fancy; where dress length can be anything you want. And Julianne Moore’s Christian Dior Couture sparkly mini number ticks all the boxes.

David OyelowoEven the dudes get in on the colorful attire, although David Oyelowo showed at the Oscars it isn’t a onetime thing and while this baby blue suit is a little rumpled in places I am still swooning all over the place.

Emmy RossumWell this just delightful and Emmy Rossum in Oscar de la Renta has me wishing it was a little warmer right now (layers and layers of knits is what I have covered myself in today).

Rinko KikuchiI’m a little mad I didn’t get to this red carpet sooner because look how perfect all of these dresses are?! Another incredible floral beauty with Rinko Kikuchi in Chanel.

Rashida JonesA switch in party but not pattern joy with Rashida Jones at the post Oscars Vanity Fair shindig looking resplendent in Andrew Gn.

Mindy KalingDeviating from the color/pattern theme and Mindy Kaling wearing another incredible creation from Mindy Project costume designer Salvador Perez. Kaling is normally all about the bold and while this has neither color nor print it might be one of the boldest outfits she has worn. Simply stunning.

 

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.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week Best – 2014 Critics’ Choice TV Awards

20 Jun

Dedicating this edition of Out of the Box to last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards and it is a very solid effort as the nearly twenty red carpet shots I have ready for you guys will testify. This is the first glitzy affair in the TV awards season since the Golden Globes and SAGs back in January and hopefully some of these winners (*cough* Tatiana Maslany/OITNB *cough*) will receive Emmy nominations next month.

Laverne Cox CC

Danielle Brooks

Uzo AdubaStarting with an Orange is the New Black trio with Laverne Cox, Danielle Brooks and Uzo Aduba all looking super glamorous in gowns with a hint of sparkly in a variety of styles. They picked up awards for Best Comedy Series and Uzo Aduba won for Best Guest Star in a Comedy with Kate Mulgrew tying with Allison Janney in the supporting category. I finished season 2 of OITNB this week and I expect the accolades will continue for these talented women.

Keri Russell and Diane KrugerAn FX duo getting to dress way fancier than the characters they play and Diane Kruger’s multicolored floral Elie Saab gown plays well against the metallic reptile looking J Mendel dress Keri Russell is wearing. I also never realized Diane Kruger was this tall, although who knows the height of their heels beneath their frocks.

Abbi and IlanaBroad City has been one of THE shows of 2014 so having Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer at this awards show is a must. Picking out the perfect outfit in the episode “Fattest Assess” comes to mind when picturing how they chose their dresses, as it’s pretty much my favorite shopping montage scene that wasn’t. Abbi is wearing a Cushnie et Ochs baby blue peplum frock and Ilana is in Prabul Gurung and they both look amazing.

Tatiana MaslanyTatiana Maslany is also wearing Cushnie et Ochs with a different play on the asymmetric overlay style that Jacobson is rocking as this is less peplum and more floaty thanks to the longer length. It’s a really simple and elegant look and I can’t tell you how happy it makes me that she chose a red pump over anything in the beige region. Maslany won for Orphan Black for the second year in the row, will the Emmys finally follow suit with a nomination?

Lizzy CaplanA butterfly covered Valentino gown for Lizzy Caplan and an easy highlight of the evening. Digging the side swept hair too.

Carrie BrownsteinThe top half of Carrie Brownstein’s dress is a little Star Trek (not a bad thing) and I can’t get over how radiant her smile is. Great lip color and silver heels to make this more than just an LBD.

Kat GrahamKat Graham is never boring on the red carpet and on this occasion this translates into a fabulous outfit. Opting for a navy Escada suit with mirrored detail on the jacket she also gets the amount of plunge right.

Allison JanneyPicking up two awards (for Mom and Masters of Sex) Allison Janney chose the right color to wear and she looks radiant in gold.

AnnetThis is a lot of tulle and Annet Mahendru from The Americans pulls both this and the sheer factor off without looking like she is going to prom.

Emmy RossumRocking magenta is Emmy Rossum in Monique Lhuillier and her turquoise statement Sutra earrings stops it from looking too saccharine.

Matthew RhysNow to the guys and Matthew Rhys gets points for both his beard and striped tie.

Zach WoodsIt might seem like he is in everything at the moment – not complaining – and Zach Woods looks half awkward/half adorable; so of course he deserves to be included in this feature.

MessinaChris Messina pulls off the hands in pockets, loosened tie partly because he is Chris Messina and in this moment he is looking very much how his character Danny Castellano would look at an event like this.

Matt BomerEnding with Matt Bomer seems like the appropriate way to finish “Look of the Week” as I don’t think there is anyone who wears a tux better. Bomer also deservedly won for The Normal Heart and I hope we will be seeing more of him on the awards circuit for this role.

Best of the 2014 Met Gala – Part One

6 May

The Met Gala is a lavish affair and the decadent red carpet showcases some of the more theatrical gowns; unlike something like the Oscars this event expects daring attire that might look out of place elsewhere. Last year’s punk theme was one many struggled with, in that they looked amazing but there was nothing particularly punk on display. Couturier Charles James is celebrated this year; both at the Met Gala and at the Met’s new Costume Institute exhibition as his designs revolutionized the world of fashion. Charles James was a perfectionist and he created incredibly structured and exquisite gowns. This is how fashion designers paid homage to this work and influence.

This is part one (for part two head here) and it is a picture heavy post. Enjoy!

Lena DunhamLast year Lena Dunham looked amazing and she’s done it once again; the Met Gala is where Dunham gets it right. Mullet dresses tend to make me shudder and yet this Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture is rather beautiful. The floral embroidery is exquisite and while I would have maybe added a necklace, it is dramatic enough as it is.

Janelle MonaeI can’t resist a cape even if it could double as a tapestry and Janelle Monae’s Tadashi ensemble is the kind of theatricality this event demands. Monae shows how pants can be just as eye-catching as any fancy gown and this is one of the most memorable looks of the night.

Lake BellThe next two pieces are from Tommy Hilfiger and use his signature colors of red, white and blue. Hilfiger is all about the classic approach and Lake Bell’s red gown is beautiful in its simplicity. One way to add impact is with a statement necklace and bold lip color/minimal makeup enhances Bell’s look.

Zooey DeschanelZooey Deschanel wore Tommy Hilfiger last year and it’s no surprise to see her wearing a gown made by her recent collaborator. Details I adore include the feathered shoulders, and the stunning Chanel Ruban Mademoiselle necklace. The white belt and train add the necessary drama, however her hair is giving me images of 80s volume which on this occasion is not a good thing.

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift was one of the only attendees who managed the punk theme and she’s once again on point in this Oscar de la Renta gown (minus the cat) in a gown that takes the structured element of Charles James’ work and runs with it. The punk theme saw a style departure for Swift, whereas this is very much in her style comfort range and she looks stunning once again.

Olivia MunnNow here’s one of my favorite approaches to hair styling at the Met Gala as Olivia Munn’s gold hairpiece and loose curls complement this stunning Diane von Furstenberg yellow gown. It’s maybe a bit too cleavy for this event, however the color is stunning and the long sleeves have a way of balancing out the plunging neckline. Munn isn’t overly done up either with just an orange pop on her lips.

Emmy RossumMore color and this time a floral explosion from Emmy Rossum in Carolina Herrera. It’s a structured ball gown and one of the more overt Charles James tributes.

Jessica PareAnother play on the floral look as Jessica Paré opts for Michael Kors and monochrome. This might be a case of needing a necklace and yet I think the lack of one adds to the elegance of the look, especially as Paré’s sleek updo, bright pink lip color and super sparkly earrings add the required impact.

Michelle WilliamsMichelle Williams keeps it simple and chic in shimmery Louis Vuitton. I adore this dress and I’m glad to see a variety of frock lengths, however this dress doesn’t scream Met Gala. Still super cute though.

Leighton MeesterLeighton Meester is going all 70s boho in gold Emilio Pucci. Pulling off both the plunging neckline and high leg slit, Meester looks amazing.

Maggie Gyllenhaal capeMaggie Gyllenhaal’s Valentino dress and matching cape is going to be pretty divisive and it might be cape bias, but I think this is terrific and hey it’s the Met Gala so these more costumey pieces are more than welcome. This also has a whole 70s thing going on with the color palette and dramatic dots (which you know, I’m also partial to). The super blonde pixie cut is also doing it for me.

Brie LarsonBrie Larson’s robot-esque space pajamas from Prada is another ensemble that might raise the wrong kind of eyebrows, but it’s getting only good eyebrows and hand claps from here. Setting it off is the hair twist as Larson goes all in.
