Best of the 2018 SAG Awards: Sparkle Motion

22 Jan

Happy Monday! And now time for more awards. The SAG Awards is always a slightly more relaxed occasion than the Oscars, style choices reflect this because while it is still a fancy affair there is also less pressure to wear the gown. So what we get is bold ensembles often playing with color and texture.

One of the big trends so far this year has been sequins and metallics aplenty.  Check out the first part of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s SAG coverage below, which includes lots of fun pairings and group shots. Allison Janney looks like a warrior in sequined armor in custom Yanina Couture. A sleek look with dramatic shoulders to match. And in a very different, but just as effective spin on sequins is Danielle Brooks in an ombre Marc Bouwer gown.Another double delight, Lupita Nyong’o is also working the dark silver trend in Ralph & Russo complete with feathers. Yara Shahidi continues to stun in what looks like a classic black jumpsuit and tuxedo jacket.But wait! This Ralph Lauren Collection ensemble has surprise train and Shahidi is very much pulling it off. Bonus berry lipstick points too. Team Lady Bird all got the sparkle memo and have each put their own spin on it. Well, not Timothée Chalamet, but he’s got the red racing pant stripe thing working for him in Calvin Klein. Laurie Metcalf’s Sachin & Babi is the most traditional of the three and also my favorite.

Saoirse Ronan continues to switch up her look for pretty much every award show this time opting for Louis Vuitton. Studded Bottega Veneta is giving me slight ’70s vibes on Greta Gerwig, which I am of course here for.And now for another version of the metallic trend—there are so many—from Emily V. Gordon. And I really hope The Big Sick is nominated tomorrow because I would love to see a) the film get recognized and b) Emily and Kumail on that red carpet. Plaid but make it metallic. Betty Gabriel looks fantastic in Phuong My alongside Get Out co-star Bradley Whitford and his IRL gf Amy Landecker. The Stranger Things older teens (actually in their ’20s) are super coordinated with Natalia Dyer standing out in astrology inspired Christian Dior couture. Is it me or is Dacre Montgomery pulling off the pencil ‘tache? He looks like a dandy in Giorgio Armani and he managed to do up almost all his buttons.  Joe Keery keeps it classic in Saint Laurent. The really stylish member of the Stranger Things cast are the younger teens and they continue to experiment with formal fashion with aplomb. Caleb McLaughlin mixes a white Dior jacket with checked Antonio Marras pants and looks fabulous. A velvet suit is one of my favorite things, but a green velvet suit is next level and Noah Schnapp delights in Stella McCartney. And Gaten Matarazzo goes for a classic Kenneth Cole tux. *starts singing* “I believe the children are our future”

Yara Shahidi and Tracee Ellis Ross aren’t the only stylish members of the Black-ish cast; Marsai Martin in burgundy Miri Couture and Miles Brown in a MSGM tux with a floral pin tie excel at the fun formal wear. Keeping with this kids dressing better than adults theme. Sterling K. Brown is super stylish and crushes it at every event, Lonnie Chavis plays young Randall on This is Us and this Dolce & Gabbana tux might be the best of the night.Paying homage to her GLOW costuming in what turns out to not be a custom gown, but something from Dundas pre-fall 2018 collection. Brie fielded a question about allegations against her brother-in-law with grace in a moment that was unexpected from E!Rounding up the first part of this SAG rundown with the GLOW cast showing off a variety of styles; so much color and pattern. I cannot wait for season 2.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Jan

Last week felt like a busy “Out of the Box,” then the Golden Globes and so many other events took place. Coverage of the very different Golden Globes can be found across three posts including the activists that attended and why it is important to credit designers. Being a feminist and caring about fashion are two concepts that don’t have to exist separately.

Post Globes parties, other awards, premieres and looks from TCA panels are featured. For the Critics’ Choice awards—which were held last night—there will be a rundown post soon. Busy Philipps is usually Michelle Williams’ award show date. But after discussing using her place of privilege in respect to what has been going on in Hollywood in her Harper’s Bazaar interview, Williams came up with the idea of bringing activists as guests. Williams was accompanied by Tarana Burke, the woman who created #MeToo over a decade ago and seven other A-list actresses followed suit.

Don’t even get me started on the shit Marky Mark pulled with regard to the reshoots.

Later in the night the pair did hangout, Busy’s Stories included the ridiculous question a paparazzi dude asked Michelle “What’s next for women?” But if Busy did decide to put this Q on a tee or sweatshirt and donate the money to #TimesUp I would be first in line.

Blurry mirror selfie with my bb.

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

Black iridescent Jeffrey Dodd looks great on Busy, but I am also very much a fan of their day after outfits. This is such a fun spin on the ladysuit by Sonequa Martin-Green; cropped/high-waisted Vitor Zerbinato suit with high ruffled collar Elisabetta Franchi shirt. The latter is making me feel like my Alienist as a style influence prediction isn’t totally off.Amy Brenneman looks cool af at the HBO Golden Globes after party and I am still mad Leftovers got no love. I never thought I would be this enamored with a sheer turtleneck, but holy wow is Tessa Thompson working another fabulous twist on menswear inspiration in Alexandre Vauthier.

And after calling out Lena Dunham for doing the most Lena Dunham thing, Thompson got embroiled in an apology/not apology news cycle. She handled it well and with eloquence, even though her first statement didn’t need explaining or walking back as it sounded pretty accurate. But, Hollywood. Or as Ira would say, “Keep It” (check out his new podcast, which is also great).Including this photo mostly because of how great Gaten Matarazzo and Joe Keery are together in season 2 of Stranger Things. Also because I just remembered Keery was in Molly’s Game. His hair was just as impressive. Gillian Anderson got a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. Her new shorter, blonder do has been getting quite the workout this week, much to my delight. This silver number by Sophia Kah is my favorite of the three dresses she has worn this week. The specs with the glitz are excellent and X-Files co-star Annabeth Gish is also crushing the style stakes.

Oh, and this week’s episode of The X-Files was incredible, especially in comparison with last week’s mythology mess. So many fun Mulder and Scully scenes. Their chemistry is still off the charts and enough to make me feel like I am fourteen again. Lots of giggling.  There’s been a lot of dressed up Greta Gerwig this week, but here she is at a SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversation event in a super cozy sweater just to mix it up.

After Lady Bird won at the Golden Globes, Gerwig was asked about her position on Woody Allen as someone that has worked with him in the past. She fumbled with a non-answer; it was disappointing even if I could recognize that it was once again a woman being asked to justify another man’s abuse. But, she did follow up with a response that is far more definitive on her position and also acknowledges why it is important to speak up.At the 2018 Film Society Of Lincoln Center & Film Comment luncheon, Greta Gerwig got daytime dressed up in this fabulous pop of floral color. Get Out’s Lil Rel Howery took the suit/turtleneck pairing to new levels in this amazing color combination. At the National Board of Review Awards, Gal Gadot wears an Elie Saab dress that is reminiscent of her blue frock from Wonder Woman. Minus the giant sword of course.The Black Panther press tour is approaching and I am so ready. Lupita Nyong’o looks in command of a space ship in a sparkly Balmain ensemble.I finished Maureen Orth’s Vulgar Favors this week, the book the new American Crime Story is based on so my anticipation levels for the show are now even higher. Penelope Cruz gives Versace-adjacent vibes in velvet custom Stella McCartney.Queen Judith Light has been cast in the perfect part for her and she lights up the red carpet as always.As far as I can tell, Anna Chancellor is not in American Crime Story, but I wish she was. But I do love this patterned frock and ankle boots combo even if it looks more Sundance attire.

This is also a good time to mention how much I miss The Hour. If any show deserves another season it is this one.TCA is still going, but it is the FX panels from last Friday that I am mostly interested in. Including Edgar Ramirez wearing a lovely sweater while discussing American Crime Story. I would love to know what Darren Criss is reacting to. The last TCA panel for The Americans and Keri Russell brought out the polka dot pussy-bow blouse big guns. I’m still in denial that it is ending. And their TV family was rather well coordinated, all getting the black/grey/white memo. I mentioned this on Twitter, but Keidrich Sellati looks like he should be hanging out with the Stranger Things teens in star collared Givenchy. Holly Taylor’s long jacket/legs out is the perfect spin on panel attire and I am still super impressed with how The Americans broke the teens in a prestige drama curse.Atlanta returns for season 2 in March and I am so ready. At the TCA panel Zazie Beetz brought all the floral ensemble glory, while Donald Glover and Brain Tyree Henry worked the more casual versions of their red carpet style.At yesterday’s HBO session, Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams were there to discuss 2 Dope Queens. And Phoebe is offering up another fun take on the ladysuit including a faux fur sash. I am very much looking forward to these specials.

The 2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet Part II

8 Jan

Welcome to TV Ate My Wardrobe’s 2018 Golden Globes coverage. For a broader discussion of the black ensemble red carpet statement, head here.

This post will be more in line with our usual red carpet chatter from award season.My favorite outfit of the night was in no big shock news, a ladysuit. Claire Foy gives off so much DGAF attitude in slouchy Stella McCartney. The bold red lip adds to the impact and it certainly looks like Foy has shed Elizabeth for Lisbeth.Golden Globe winner (that sure feels good to type) Sterling K. Brown in a velvet Isaia tux looks fabulous, but wife Ryan Michelle Bathe steals the show in another great ladysuit; this one is by Dolce & Gabbana.

His opening word is perfect.And to Brown’s onscreen wife, Susan Kelechi Watson. There are many ways to do black. A super sequin Monsoori jumpsuit is a knockout choice. Plus, pockets! Surprise pants were a repeated theme of the night including nominee Laurie Metcalf in a fabulous Sachin & Babi ensemble.Good Girls is on my most anticipated list of the new 2018 shows, Christina Hendricks was on hand to promote this show and also work the surprise pants courtesy of Christian Siriano. What I really love about this look is how it is so Christina Hendricks (that velvet bodice), but then it swerves in an unexpected direction.Former Mad Men co-star, Alison Brie also successfully does the ball gown to pants scroll down, in dramatic Vassilis Zoulias.And a totally different take on the pants/dress hybrid is Maggie Gyllenhaal in sequinned Monse. There’s something dancer adjacent about this. Though definitely not in those heels.Gal Gadot adds a menswear twist to a super feminine frock in Tom Ford. More great lipstick inspiration too. In super disappointing news Call Me By Your Name didn’t win anything (except our hearts).

There’s not a lot to be said about the men in black. It isn’t a stretch from their usual attire, but there are a few guys to highlight. The texture and flower detail on Armie Hammer’s Armani jacket makes it stand out. Timothée Chalamet’s Berluti look is pretty standard, but they look cute here so *shrug emoji* Ewan McGregor looks super sharp. Plus he has the ideal beard/hair length thing going on.

He also shows how to sincerely thank your ex and current gf without making it sound complicated. Chris Hemsworth also does something slightly different in brocade Etro and velvet Louboutins. Oh, hello Taika Waititi. Silver Fox alert. The Stranger Things teens always have fun with fashion. This doesn’t stop when there is a black dress code. I am particularly fond of Noah Schnapp’s Balmain bold tux buttons and Elizabetta Boutique scarf and Caleb McLaughlin’s Ports 1961 tux and turtleneck combo.

Gaten Matarazzo is in Suit Supply and Finn Wolfhard keeps it classic in Saint Laurent. Sadie Sink looks like she is wearing the Miu Miu version of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season finale frock and it is fabulous.On Twitter I noted what a bummer it was that Millie Bobby Brown didn’t to walk the carpet with the other Stranger teens, but I am glad to say she looked like she was having fun with them later. The best entrance award goes to Norman Lear and Rita Moreno. The best Matador inspired leather jacket goes to Rita Moreno.

Stay tuned for Part III!

Best of the Emmys 2017 Style: Bold Color and Shimmer

18 Sep

Welcome to the second part of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s Emmy coverage and this is brought to you on four hours sleep and a whole lot of Diet Coke (#notspon).

For all things awards, couples, feathers and more head here. In this post we will be lavishing praise on the colorful and metallic looks of the night. AKA my favorite kind of award show sartorial choices.Pleats make for the best all drama posing and Tessa Thompson in rainbow Rosie Assoulin is quite possibly the best look of the entire night. There’s a bonus ’70s feeling about all of this and I am so ready for the Thor press tour.Viola Davis always gives great vibrant color—it was pink in 2016—and this year’s Emmys are no different. A tangerine dream in custom Zac Posen. One of the show highlights was Tituss Burgess in the Westworld sketch and also this jacket is beyond fantastic.Again the Stranger Things teens continue to show most the adult dudes how it is done; wearing designers from Prada to Ted Baker and Balmain. Getting the edge in the best dressed here is Caleb McLaughlin in a purple brocade Garçon Couture jacket. Nicole Kidman won big on the night in more ways than one as she picked up for Best Actress in a mini-series and as producer on Big Little Lies. She was also wearing maybe her best look of a very busy 2017 in red Calvin Klein by Appointment. Also favoring crimson is Issa Rae in custom Vera Wang; I’m not wild about the sleeves but from the back this dress is divine.If you are a regular watched of Gina Rodriguez’s Instagram Stories then you have probably seen her use a pull up bar on her door frame. It took her a few attempts, but she can now work it like a pro and she even did so in this super sexy Naeem Khan frock. And along with Busy Philipps, she very much makes me want to exercise more.Yara Shahidi once again does something different and you can never predict what red carpet direction she will opt for. This time she goes ethereal in Prada.Last year Sarah Paulson wowed in green sequined Prada and she’s gone the sparkly route again in Carolina Herrera. It doesn’t quite deliver the same knockout levels, but I do love the drama of the puffed out sleeves. For my fave silver sequins of the night look no further than Anna Chlumsky in custom Sachin & Babi.

Chlumsky also gave the best reaction to the worst moment and her very ’90s styling on Halt and Catch Fire is every level flashback inducing.Mixing florals and metallics is Queen Regina King in a plunging Galia Lahav Couture gown and those DVANI diamond starburst earrings are making me wish I had pierced ears.Another flaming hot Naeem Khan dress and Laverne Cox is a dripped in silver delight.Kiernan Shipka has been coming to the Emmys since 2010 and this is an instant way to feel old—as pointed out with this helpful visual from Jarett Wieselmen. This Miu Miu gown is simple, elegant and very pretty.Another teen hitting all the right sartorial notes is Millie Bobby Brown in Calvin Klein by Appointment. This gives off a princess vibe without feeling too saccharine.Millennial pink for Samira Wiley in custom Christian Siriano and I love the cut of this gown.Another very different ladysuit from Evan Rachel Wood in striking wide-legged Jeremy Scott for Moschino. She looks like a fabulous ringmaster.

Best of the 2016 Emmys: Shimmer, Black and White

19 Sep

Continuing our Emmy style rundown and this second bumper post gives great sparkle. Plus the many different interpretations of how to wear black and white on the red carpet.constance-wuGetting 70s disco vibes from Constance Wu in J. Mendel and after Sarah Paulson’s Prada, this is my favorite look of the night.judith-lightJudith fucking Light. Always amazing. No exceptions. laverne-coxOrange is the New Black was pretty much shutout this year, but Laverne Cox is giving statuette realness is Naeem Khan.claire-danesClaire Danes might want to tone down the tan/bronzer, but her Schiaparelli super sparkly number is a stunner.taraji-p-hensonTaraji P. Henson changed it all up for presenting and I think I like this look even more than the yellow dress. Sequins and that hairstyle continue the nod to the 70s.stranger-things-kidsThe Stranger Things kids are adorable and need to be protected at all costs. Also continuing the trend of dressing better than a lot of adults, particularly in the tux department (see also Jacob Tremblay). Millie Bobby Brown put a bird on it in Red Valentino and this is the perfect brand for her.kristen-bellA very romantic looking Zuhair Murad floral gown for Kristen Bell and this is giving me all the heart eyes.yara-shahidiAnother knockout choice from Yara Shahidi and a Clara Rotescu dress that also gave great twirl/floating style.tracee-ellis-rossEverything about Tracee Ellis in this pose and Ralph Lauren dress is incredibly regal. holly-taylorThe Americans sadly didn’t win, but Holly Taylor combines great sparkle with white in custom Theia Couture. rami-malekRami Malek in a white Dior tux jacket is showing why he was on our most anticipated list.tittus-burgessRami’s not the only one crushing the white tux jacket look and Tituss Burgess also came with a strong shoe and bow tie game.sophie-turnerA sheer frock I don’t hate! Sophie Turner delivers a miracle in Valentino.jldAnd even more sheer that I like! Julia Louis-Dreyfus gave a heart crushing speech as her dad passed away on Friday, which left me pretty much sobbing into my wine.america-ferreraSequins really were the big style winner of the night and America Ferrera’s Jenny Packham frock is another evening high point.kerry-washingtonKerry Washington is never boring on the red carpet and she’s wearing a show stopping Brandon Maxwell number coupled with hair that takes me back to Olivia Pope hanging out on a tropical beach.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

1 Sep

One of the busiest months of the year in terms of TV and fashion is here so this week’s “Out of the Box” is a fun mix of film festival attire, talk shows and magazine editorials. While I’m on the subject of September and how busy it is you can now also sign up to my weekly newsletter here. The first one is all about this time of year and is an extension of everything TV Ate My Wardrobe.Emma StoneEmma Stone at the Venice Film Festival wearing a delightful floral Giambattista Valli, which is an ideal daytime photocall outfit for La La Land. Paired with suede ochre heels gives this a late 70s feel that I am – in non-shocking news – in love with. I am very excited about this movie and the costume design is already giving me all the heart eyes.Zooey DeschanelGiving off casual cool at Jimmy Kimmel Live! is Zooey Deschanel and I’ve been after a good pair of denim dungarees. To me they are jumpsuit adjacent in that I don’t own a pair and they give me the same clothing related bathroom fears.

On the show Deschanel also looked great in a black ensemble paired with some super sparkly amazing flats and a collar that ticks all the boxes. Plus she talked about how much her daughter loves cheese, her TV directorial debut and the New Girl crossover with Brooklyn Nine-Nine.Aja Naomi KingInterview Magazine continues to deliver on great photoshoots and interviews – well I guess it is the title of the magazine – and this week HTGAWM’s Aja Naomi King chats with OITNB’s Danielle Brooks about their classic training, TV and King’s role in The Birth of a Nation. Also working with Viola Davis sounds as incredible as you probably imagined it would be.

“She brings you in, and it feels like family. When you’re in that kind of family environment, when you’re tasked with doing something difficult, you can allow yourself to be brave because you know you’re surrounded by people that love you, that only want the best for you. From day one, it’s been that wonderful. I was terrified. That first scene we’re in together in the pilot, I was so scared. Here she is, being amazing in this room, and I just want her to think I’m amazing too.”Aya Cash Interview MagAlso in Interview is Aya Cash and I am thrilled You’re the Worst is back for a third season. The premiere episode is really great, made me teary and sparked an important shower related debate.  As with the Aja Naomi King picture Aya Cash nails the disarming black and white shot in stunning fashion.

In the interview Cash discusses how Stephen Falk had to fight for her to get the part of Gretchen, audition rejections, the doors You’re the Worst has opened and what she’d be doing if she wasn’t acting. This also has me very excited:

“I’m starting to produce. I’m developing a project for myself based on one of my mom’s books. I really don’t have a specific idea of where I want my career to go, I just have an idea of wanting to continue to work and work on things that I like and think are good. I don’t need to be crazy rich and crazy famous. I would just like to keep going.”Aya CashThis all-Prada ensemble shot is also fantastic and I couldn’t pick between the two. For more from this Interview shoot head here.Rachel WeiszChunky knit season is upon us and upstate New York is the place for these late summer shoots as The Edit shows with this fantastic Rachel Weisz spread. This turtleneck sweater is perhaps a tad outside my budget and it is still too warm for such garments, but I can dream.Stranger Things kidsStranger Things is one of the undeniable hits of the summer and part of the reason for its success and resonance is the kids at the center of the story. Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo all appeared on The Tonight Show this week timed perfectly for the season 2 pickup announcement. Style wise it has been a lot of Winona (for good reason) on here, but the kids dominated this piece I wrote.

And in real life they are pretty adorable and charming. Outfit wise they are all perfect and Millie Bobby Brown’s dress and flats are super cute. Points for all. Plus she crushes Nicki Minaj’s “Monster” verse.
