Theory’s NYFW Fall 2014 Collection and Homeland’s Carrie Mathison

11 Feb

Claire Danes covered the January issue of Glamour magazine and mentioned that “Carrie wears a lot of Theory. That is her brand. She’s a Theory girl. It’s a lot of navy. A lot of navy.” Upon seeing Theory’s NYFW fall 2014 RTW collection we noticed several outfits that are very much the Carrie Mathison CIA uniform and here they are for your perusal.

Ok maybe Carrie wouldn’t wear some of the skirts (especially ones that are as sheer as this), but hey maybe she’ll want to try something new. The color palette favors the muted tones that Carrie prefers including the aforementioned navy.

Return to the ’90s with Tommy Hilfiger’s NYFW Fall 2014 Collection

11 Feb

Plaid, oversized sweaters, stripes and knits are all high on TV Ate My Wardrobe’s fall season wish list and as it’s still very much the weather for all of these things the Tommy Hilfiger fall RTW 2014 collection is on point. Yes we’re still highly anticipating the Zooey Deschanel/Tommy Hilfiger collaboration; however one needs a lot more sunshine than the other.

Throw in some ’90s nostalgia – I can’t see a tartan mini without thinking of Clueless’ Cher Horowitz – and it’s an instant hit here. We’ve recently been immersed in TV from our teen years; first with a My So-Called Life rewatch and currently with Felicity and all these sweaters are crying out for a college aged Keri Russell to wear them.

There is also a hint of April Ludgate (who else?) in this collection and it has the Tommy Hilfiger classic outdoors look. Shirt dresses and mini wool skirts that embrace plaid in bold colors feature throughout; just because the sky is grey doesn’t mean your clothes have to mirror this. If you really want to return to the ’90s there is a spaghetti strap dress that you could throw on a tee underneath – not that we’re really recommending this as this one trend that I don’t want to see reviving.

Diane von Furstenberg’s NYFW 2014 Fall Collection: Mix-and-Match Print for Hannibal’s Dr. Alana Bloom

10 Feb

Happy 40th Birthday to the Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress and Hannibal’s Dr Alana Bloom sported this iconic garment during its first season. The collection von Furstenberg debuted this weekend at New York Fashion Week is called Bohemian Wrapsody – full marks on the pun – and there are several signature DVF pieces that are very much part of the Alana Bloom look on Hannibal.

Caroline Dhavernas looks incredible in red and in terms of costume design on Hannibal it’s a color that is used sparingly, most likely to create a stronger impact when it comes to the crime scenes. Alana is one of the only characters that get to wear red (Freddie is another) and this is most noticeable in the finale after Will has been arrested. Red can symbolize a variety of conflicting and intense emotions – love, anger, passion, strength – with Alana it definitely lays on compassionate end of the scale and I consider her to be the heart of the show.

One other key component to Alana’s costuming is that it is ultra feminine and she almost exclusively wears skirts and dresses. Whether it is intentional or not, Alana is coded in season 1 in way that reflects a strong maternal role with both Will and Abigail – the whole ‘mother’ thing gets a bit fuzzy when you factor in the strong sexual attraction between Will and Alana – she’s a protector and there’s no ulterior motive to her actions. Alana’s costuming reflects this femininity and the DVF rosebud motif is on point with this factor, as are the mix-and-match prints which reflect the chaos of the Hannibal environment.

Below are 7 looks from Diane von Furstenberg’s fall 2014 RTW collection that I could see as part of Dr. Alana Bloom’s wardrobe. There are some other strong gold and star infused pieces from this runway show that will feature later in the week.
