Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jun

A day earlier than the usual Behind the Insta-Scenes posting time and that’s because it has been jam packed with the ATX Television Festival in Austin delivering on the TV reunion front. Plus the Tony Awards and other great TV related hangouts.

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts… @atxfestival

The ATX Television Festival provided a whole lot of feelings all over Instagram (I would be a mess if I was there IRL) and the Friday Night Lights reunion was the number one source.

Also from Austin we’ve got Mae Whitman bringing together two parts of the Jason Katims TV map. I really like her glasses.

 

In more excellent TV reunion photos with the ladies from Ugly Betty and one boozy hangout dream scenario; Vanessa Williams AND Judith Light.

 

Posing up a storm and the UnREAL cast continues to crush all things on Instagram (also this week’s episode is SO great).

 

Danai Gurira was one of our Tony Awards red carpet faves and not only is she delivering on the excellent Insta multi group shots, but she’s also given us a getting ready photo diary over at Vogue.

 

In non-shocking news to regular readers, but I adore this selfie. And everything about this friendship. Michelle Williams’ lipstick looks even better in close up.

One last one from last night.

This is also really wonderful and showcases the hell out of Busy Philipps’ amazing frock.

 

More in the Tony selfie stream and Lucy Liu was one of the yellow frock delights from the night.

 

Lupita gifts us with a Tonys dress and accessories still life; such exquisite and detailed work.

 

Glenn Close looks amazing and in a ‘stars they’re just like us’ moment she’s seen her clutching heels rather than wearing them after a big event (I normally last 2 hours, maybe 3 if/when the booze kicks in).

 

Busy Philipps has the Jane Eyre Olympia Le-Tan book cover clutch and this Bell Jar one (as mentioned in this Tonys post) is my ultimate clutch wish list item.

They didn’t get a chance to work together on The Good Wife, but I am so here for this.

Dazed and bloody… Ep10

A post shared by Sam Heughan (@samheughan) on

 

A well earned coffee break on the set of Outlander.

 

You’re the Worst is now shooting season 3 and I cannot wait for more. Love the slippers, Kether.

 

BrainDead started last night and I liked the pilot a bunch; the leads are great and former Good Wife costume designer Daniel Lawson is giving me a whole new blazer wardrobe to covet.

 

Behind the scenes of this fantastic New York Magazine Tracee Ellis Ross photo shoot gives the bonus of seeing Ross dancing to Beyoncé.

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.

SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration Red Carpet Style Highs

16 Feb

Last night Saturday Night Live celebrated 40 years with a star packed 3 hour show with plenty of familiar faces on stage and in the Studio 8H audience. A very cold red carpet took place prior to the performance with plenty of smiles through the freezing temps and below are some of our favorite looks.

Maya and KristenStarting off with two SNL greats in the evening’s black classic trend with Maya Rudolph in a tuxedo inspired jumpsuit, which I am definitely into. The pockets and bold red lipstick get instant style points. Kristen Wiig looks super hot in a plunging Max Azria Atelier gown.

Olivia WildeAfter last weekend’s lady tux high Olivia Wilde steps it up a notch combining lady tux with cape in a stunning H&M Conscious Commerce Collection ensemble that I need in my life.

Emma Stone and Larry DavidSequin Christina Dior for Emma Stone with just as sparkly shoes and this is a slight break from the norm hand on hip red carpet pose with Larry David.

Glenn CloseNot really sure what is happening in this photo other than something magical. Glenn Close is everything.

Melissa McCarthyBlack could be seen as somber particularly for an evening celebrating comedy; thankfully there are plenty of ways to prevent this turning into a bleak event including sequins and Melissa McCarthy’s mixed fabrics look is fantastic.

Debbie HarryDebbie Harry shows how to work layers and she’s probably not freezing like most the attendees in this fantastic ensemble. She has no time to deal with your shit.

Jane KrakowskiJenna Maroney would be busting out a song on the red carpet to make sure all eyes are on her, Jane Krakowski does this by wearing a sexy plunging gown. Red nail polish and an amazing bracelet add those extra pow points. So excited for The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Dakota JohnsonA break from the big trend of the night and Dakota Johnson does the super glitzy sparkles in a Sonia Rykiel mini dress and while clutching hold of her coat kind of looks a bit sloppy/like she skinned a stuffed toy on the way over, the brr cold weather is reason enough to keep something like this close by. As with her Golden Globes Chanel this is another winning shimmery outfit.

Sarah SilvermanPosing in Posen and Sarah Silverman does smokey eye glam with aplomb.

Lucy LiuMore sparkle embellishments and Lucy Liu’s gown might have worked better in a darker shade like midnight blue. It is still super pretty and stands out from the sea of black attire.

Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington’s Adam Lippes blazer dress is Olivia Pope with a twist and feels like a throwback with the peek-a-boo bra.

Joanna Newson and Andy SambergAndy Samberg’s teal tuxedo jacket mixes up the usual black jacket dude stylings, but it is wife Joanna Newsom’s floral frock that stands out.

Kate McKinnon, Aidy BryantRounding things off with some of the current cast; Taran Killam and Kenan Thompson are doing the classic tux/suit thing, Aidy Bryant adds a metallic edge to her polka dot dress and Kate McKinnon is another all black classic look.
