Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 Jan

Award season is truly here and before the Golden Globes on Sunday (and pre/after parties) we’ve got a selection of fancy looks from the various celebrations this week. So happy for this onslaught of evening wear.janelle-monae-and-mahershala-aliJanelle Monáe knows and at the Palm Springs Awards where Mahershala Ali was honored for Moonlight, Monáe points to her suavely dressed co-star. Monáe is very high up on my Golden Globes red carpet entrance most anticipated list and as ever she is crushing it; this time in Jenny Packham and another fantastic lip color/hair accessory. For Monáe skip to the end. kirsten-dunstI’ve been watching a lot of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries recently and if you were to throw a fabulous shawl and embellished hair accessory Kirsten Dunst’s sparkly beaded Ralph and Russo gown would be pure Phryne. There’s something both understated and extravagant at work here; it could maybe do with some jewelry, but I also really like the simplicity.glen-powell-palm-springsThe reason I stuck with Scream Queens for all of season 1 (I did not make it to season 2) and Glen Powell’s smile could power an electric grid. Nice tux too.michelle-williamsMoving on to the New York Film Critics Circle Awards and I think it won’t shock you to hear Michelle Williams is wearing Louis Vuitton. No Busy for a date this time, but expect to see her come Sunday when I think we will see Williams in a far flashier LV number. This LBD with a gold twist is great and all for a low-key start to 2017 as are the feet freezing gold sandals.amy-ryanAlso at the same event is Amy Ryan and I adore her as much as her choice of blue Art Deco adjacent frock, which is to say a lot.viola-davisViola Davis received her Hollywood Walk of Fame star in style this week wearing a white Christian Siriano dress and Davis is another Golden Globe nominee I am looking forward to seeing walk the red carpet this Sunday. Davis always gives great speeches; this was no different as she talked about her father – which made me misty eyed – and you can see the full video here (Davis is just after the 15 minute mark).

Giving a fantastic introduction is Meryl Streep (starting at 8 minutes) and this line really stood out “She writes paragraphs with her eyes.”janelle-monaeBook-ending this week’s “Out of the Box” with Janelle Monáe and she sure knows how to wear a whole lot of black and white while keeping things exciting. At the Variety “10 Directors to Watch” event she gets all the collar points in a Spring ’17 Lela Rose dress with another tick in the bold lipstick and hair accessory columns. The googly eyes have been switched for safety pins here and gold wire at the Palm Springs Awards. Celeb hairstylist Nikki Nelms is a genius.

Friday Night Lights cast hangouts get me every single time. This is no exception.

 

Now for NYFW and at Opening Ceremony this is a whole lot of comic actors to adore, all wearing fabulous clothes.

More Alia Shawkat and the Rachel Antonoff Betty and Veronica collection was showcased in a super fun and imaginative way, with Shawkat being one of the models.

Thank you so much @britandco & @tracy_reese for my very first #NYFW!!! I had an amazing time covering this one of a kind garden fashion show/presentation, I got to talk to Whoopi Goldberg and @thesheertruth, bump into @elleusa superstar @nikkiogun, check out the models, which were a collection of professional peeps and everyday women, plus my Spanx stayed in place the whole time, and Tracy, who has dressed FLOTUS, gifted me with three dresses. ANYWAY! Stay tuned for my videos covering this amazing show. I'll be posting them soon. And start pre-ordering clothes from Tracy's new collection. It's stunning! #GodIsReal #IFeelLikeCarrieBradshaw #BlackGirlMagic Dress: @tracy_reese Shoes: @aldo_shoes Hair & Makeup: @delinamedhin Photos: @delinamedhin & @delicate_plumber

So many heart eyes at Phoebe Robinson in Tracy Reese at NYFW and I am really looking forward to reading You Can’t Touch My Hair, which is out next month.

Winter Is Here

All eyes are on Belfast to see which Game of Thrones cast members are heading to Northern Ireland for season 7 and while this bar hang is not a guarantee that Sansa and Arya will reunite any time soon, I can but dream. I am also here for Maisie William’s double drink choice of a cocktail and what looks like a hot beverage.

 

The month of everything happening continues with the Toronto Film Festival and Hidden Figures is on my most anticipated list (see also La La LandManchester by the SeaColossal and Jackie). Glen Powell is pretty much the main reason I stuck with Scream Queens and he’s got the best co-star hangouts at TIFF.

 

Top notch prom posing skills.

Also at TIFF is Uzo Aduba and this is an incredible pre-premiere shot.

 

So happy that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won a couple of Emmys over the weekend. Expect a lot more Emmy Insta next week.

 

I’m still confident in saying that BrainDead was my favorite show of the summer and while I am sad it is probably done, the finale kept up the absurd/fun/weird/sexy/amazing costume levels.

 

Is Liv getting a zombie dog? This is a serious cutie.

 

Masters of Sex returned this week with a promising start to the season after last year’s messiness. Niecy Nash was a welcome presence and she won’t put up with Bill’s self-pity.

Cole at rest.

The boots and jeans look works well on Joshua Jackson so thank you, Affair costume department.

 

Time for the weekly installment of I heart the You’re the Worst team; at work on a Saturday.

 

And then followed by spending the evening together.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

12 Nov

Master of None was how I spent my weekend and there’s a whole bunch of photos from this show on this week’s TV Instagram round-up including one that hit me right in the feels. Plus plenty of other set shenanigans from shows like ElementaryJane the Virgin and the forthcoming Legends of Tomorrow.

 

Future excellent Good Wife guest star and excellent Lucca Quinn outfit ahoy.

 

The excellent Master of None is definitely a family affair with Aziz Ansari’s parents playing his parents on the show and his brother Aniz collaborated on the writing end. I am now in a post marathoning funk.

My dad took off most of his vacation time for the year to act in Master of None. So I'm really relieved this all worked out. Tonight after we did Colbert together he said: "This is all fun and I liked acting in the show, but I really just did it so I could spend more time with you." I almost instantly collapsed into tears at the thought of how much this person cares about me and took care of me and gave me everything to give me the amazing life I have. I felt like a total piece of garbage for all the times I haven't visited my parents and told them I wanted to stay in New York cause I'd get bored in SC. I'm an incredibly lucky person and many of you are as well. Not to beat a dead horse here and sorry if this is cheesy or too sentimental but if your parents are good to you too, just go do something nice for them. I bet they care and love you more than you realize. I've been overwhelmed by the response to the Parents episode of our show. What's strange is doing that episode and working with my parents has increased the quality of my relationship to my parents IN MY REAL LIFE. In reality, I haven't always had the best, most open relationship with my parents because we are weirdly closed off emotionally sometimes. But we are getting better. And if you have something like that with your family – I urge you to work at it and get better because these are special people in your life and I get terrified when my dad tells me about friends of his, people close to his age, that are having serious health issues, etc. Enjoy and love these people while you can. Anyway, this show and my experiences with my parents while working on it have been very important in many ways and I thank for you the part you all have played in it.

And now things are getting a little misty up in here.

 

I mentioned this a couple of days ago, but I really hope there is more Shannon in season 2 because Danielle Brooks killed it as Dev’s agent.

 

And you should definitely Treat Yo Self.

 

Mostly I just want an excuse to talk about how incredible Regina King is on The Leftovers this week (and every week) and the questionnaire scene with Carrie Coon is jaw-droppingly good. Powerhouse performances from both women and I am still thinking about it.

different faces same disguise #TheAmericans

A post shared by Annet Mahendru (@annetmahendru) on

 

The cast of The Americans has just as much fun with the disguises as I do writing about them.

 

More from The Americans season 4 table reads and is that Dylan Baker I spy sitting there?

 

Scream Queens is pretty patchy; one person who has been consistently brilliant throughout is Glen Powell and he really can work a golf bro ensemble.

 

I want to see which character comes next in this chain. Maybe Andy Sachs.

FIRESTORM rainstorm brainstorm #legends #bts

A post shared by CAITY LOTZ (@caitylotz) on

 

Fake rain or real rain on Legends of Tomorrow? I will be very glad when this show starts because a) more Victor Garber on TV and b) Arrow and The Flash can go back to focusing on their own storylines rather than setting up the spinoff.

 

Elementary made a very welcome return last week and I am as happy as Lucy Liu and Aidan Quinn are delightful in this Jonny Lee Miller snapped shot.

 

I still need to watch last week’s episode and so I’m reading the look on Viola Davis’ face as one that is questioning my viewing choices.
