Celebrating the 75th Golden Globes with Bold Print and Color

16 Nov

It is mid-November and Golden Globe nominations are just around the corner—they will be announced Monday, 11 December—and as it is the 75th anniversary of these awards, there is of course a party.

And many of the people vying for nominations attended, because of course. A lot of them also happened to give some of the best performances of the year. Big trends of the night include bold prints and color, much to my delight. There are several late entries into the best profiles of 2017 category and Kyle Buchanan’s Vulture interview with Armie Hammer is so good that it warrants its own outtakes article. I saw Call Me by Your Name twice in the space of a week and I am still thinking about it. 

Also incredible is his choice of Paul Smith suit and floral T-shirt; this event is casual enough to eschew a collar and I love this fun red carpet take. Another Ilaria Urbinati winner.Alison Brie’s Instagram is a gift for any GLOW fan right now. There are so many good BTS moments from the set, particularly with her hair. Here she has scraped it back and gone with minimal makeup, which makes sense when you’re wearing a Hugo Boss green leopard print velvet dress.  Keeping with the Community cast theme and everything about this Yvette Nicole Brown frock is perfect winter florals.Also going with a botanical print and Tatiana Maslany mixes masculine and feminine styling with aplomb. There is a reason she is a style icon around these parts.Alias Grace is one of the best shows I have seen this year and star Sarah Gadon is a revelation. Gadon is currently doing the talk show circuit (where she is charming as hell) and hopefully she will get some awards love.

And she looks pretty fabulous in Giambattista Valli at this Golden Globes celebration.On and off screen, Yvonne Orji crushes it in the sartorial stakes. An appropriately festive dress by Phuong My and a dramatic bow that doesn’t swamp her.Insecure creator/star Issa Rae goes in a different direction to her co-star and this block color Brandon Maxwell halter neck dress is making me want an afternoon cocktail. Cute without being too saccharine is Saoirse Ronan in a girlish Teresa Helbig frock and I am still desperate to see Lady Bird.13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford in lipstick print Valentino Resort is giving off super fun vibes, but would it have been too on the nose for Langford to wear lipstick as well?I would be thrilled if Tara Lynne Barr got recognized for her performance on Casual (I still think about the stripped down rendition of “Landslide”) and season 3 of this show is probably my favorite so far.

Barr also gives great party frock and colorful pumps; I would like all of this in my own wardrobe.Director Dee Rees continues to wear some of the best jackets on the red carpet and I cannot wait to see Mudbound (which arrives on Netflix tomorrow).Jessica McNamee ticks three of my favorite style boxes; the ladysuit, heritage prints and a bold lip color. More ladysuit treats from Zoe Lister-Jones in Dion Lee and I am also a sucker for the stripe long-sleeve tee with a suit thing, which Adam Scott is doing so well.More Valentino Resort and a very different look for Aubrey Plaza as she dips her two in the Little House on the Prairie pool. It looks pretty damn good.Block color and kooky shoes for another TV Ate My Wardrobe fave. Julia Garner has had a very good year and I am already excited to see what she does in 2018. Namely the Waco miniseries and how much Kimmy will be in the final season of The Americans. I should probably also watch Ozark.Oh, hello. Turtleneck with a suit achievement unlocked and I am now currently casting Sebastian Stan in my as yet unwritten 1970s set movie. It is going to be a doozy.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jan

This week’s Golden Globes coverage extends beyond the many red carpet posts with a whole lot of selfies from the ballroom and the after parties. Plus a whole slew of other events and reminders of when certain shows are back.

 

Kicking things off with all the pretty from Gina Rodriguez and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac. Plus Gina Rodriguez gives an all important beard smell related tweet.

From the American Horror Story: Hotel table where it looks like shenanigans are being had.

 

Backstage selfies with varying opinions about the lighting.

 

A quick change from Taraji P. Henson makes a whole lot of sense because dancing with a train that long is just impractical. Serayah opts for one of the bold color looks that was on trend this weekend.

 

Serious smolder and pout face from The Flash’s Grant Gustin and Shantel VanSanten and also a really good opportunity to remind you The Flash is back next week.

A shuttle shortage caused major parking lot hanging out, but our new favorite on (and off) screen besties took the opportunity to snap a shot.

It helps to be in with both HBO and Netflix as Pedro Pascal’s invites show.

 

The Netflix love is strong at a pre-Globes party with OITNB’s Elizabeth Rodriguez, Pedro Pascal and Netflix newbie Gillian Jacobs.

 

A busy weekend full of events for many and Gillian Jacobs attended the Vivienne Westwood ‘Art of Elysium’ celebration on Saturday in this stunning floral number. Getting pet approval points too.

Carly Chaikin’s AFI luncheon dress is one of our ultimate faves from the sea of recent outfits we have discussed and we also highly approve of her selfie subject from this event.

 

A very good week for Taraji with awards and magazine covers, plus finally getting Jussie Smollet back at his own game.

 

Mindy Kaling has worn a lot of amazing things and her Instagram acts as an outfit archive, but I can definitely see why she is calling this one of her favorites. All the heart eye emojis.

Everyone is getting back to set and this means it is time for the first “Behind the Insta-Scenes” of the new year with bonus Golden Globes photos involving worlds colliding, pooches and general shenanigans.

Treats from returning shows like Broad City and Looking, plus another excellent guest star making their way to The Mindy Project are all featured below.

A post shared by Allison Tolman (@allison_tolman) on

 

Fargo meets Fargo with Allison Tolman and Frances McDormand at the Golden Globes. I’ve already talked about Tolman’s dress here, but I am all over McDormand’s beads and DGAF vibes.

 

I finally started Jane the Virgin! Five episodes in and it is love. Gina Rodriguez’s Globes essentials include Jane watching over her, which obviously did the trick.

 

Dogs and ball gowns with Allison Williams; this shows the beautiful detail on her Armani Privé gown in a more informal setting.

 

The place names and table decorations sure are nice.

 

The Looking season 2 premiere was just as incredible as this tree is big/old. And just as delightful as the way the guys are posing in this photo.

 

Broad City is back! Start every dance party ever. And while I am a selfie stick sceptic, I will make an exception for Abbi and Ilana in this two part writers’ room shot.

 

Here it is from Ilana’s perspective.

 

*Sob* that Selfie is dunzo but here is John Cho making an appearance on The Mindy Project. In love with Mindy’s Oscar de la Renta belted tweed jacket and matching skirt.

Best of the Pre-Golden Globes Parties

11 Jan

Happy Golden Globes Day! It isn’t just about the dresses (and suits) on display from the awards show as there has been a lot of pre-gaming at various events over the past few days. Here are some of our favorite looks including a whole lot of pattern from W Magazine’s Golden Globes celebration and the 2015 BAFTA LA Tea Party.

Diane Kruger MarniDiane Kruger is serving up 1960s perfection in a lilac Marni frock at the party and the leopard-print A.L.C. ‘Davenport’ clutch is the perfect addition to an already fantastic outfit.

Amy Landecker Jay DuplassJay Duplass is wearing a shirt that is stylistically in tune with his character on Transparent in this fun shot with co-star Amy Landecker at W’s Golden Globe celebration.

Tracee Ellis RossThere is something a little upholstery about Tracee Ellis Ross’ dress but this is floral perfection nonetheless. Bonus red lipstick points awarded.

Gina RodriguezMoving on to the BAFTA Tea Party and starting with Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez in a very cute and fun Guishem dress. I’m looking forward to seeing what Rodriguez will wear on the red carpet later and I will also continue to lament the fact I have still yet to watch Jane the Virgin.

Joanne FroggattYes this is a playsuit and while I have my own play/jumpsuit concerns, over the past few months I have warmed to them on others and Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt in Emilia Wickstead is another I find myself liking a whole bunch. The flash of pastel color with the clutch detracts from the slightly blah nude strappy sandals.

Moran AtiasThis is a very delightful look from Tyrant’s Moran Atias with butterflies and plaid from Temperley London at the BAFTA Tea Party.

Gillian AndersonThis reads a little more beach and cocktails than tea party mostly because I think it needs a necklace; however Gillian Anderson is still resplendent in this ensemble.

Jamie DornanAnderson’s The Fall co-star Jamie Dornan shows how to do the suit without a shirt and tie thing with aplomb. The pocket square is a nice touch and while I’m all for beardy goodness this is entering the too grizzly stages.

Eddie RedmanyeEddie Redmayne’s suit game is consistently strong (as consistent as his pose leaning which I can’t unsee since Tom and Lorenzo mentioned it) and his Alexander McQueen electric-blue suit at the BAFTA event is no different. He is definitely my most anticipated dude for his evening.

Kit Harington BAFTAAnd finally wearing something that sits in the middle of Redmayne’s suit and Dornan’s jacket/no shirt and tie is Kit Harington looking far more casual than his Testament of Youth premiere attire from last week.

Come back tomorrow for a whole lot more dress (and suit) analysis.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Jan

Monochrome has been back in favor for a while now and so many of the best red carpet looks at various events this week have embraced this trend. This also applies to some on point looks on TV this week and so Out of the Box is focusing on the best in black and white. It’s also been a huge week for TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite Diane von Furstenberg as she celebrates 40 years of her iconic wrap dress with the launch of the Journey of a Dress exhibition as well as getting a name check on American Horror Story: Coven.

Allison Williams DVFAllison Williams went for retro glamour while celebrating Diane von Furstenberg as she ditches the classic all American look she tends to favor on the red carpet. The new season of Girls premiered last weekend and this coupled with the Golden Globes means that the Girls cast have been doing the rounds. This is my style highlight of all the many different outfits Williams has worn and I’m digging the faux bob and red lipstick.

Diane Kruger ChanelDiane Kruger in Chanel is a recipe for success and she pulls off this super cute mini bow accented ensemble like a Chanel wearing pro (she is a face of their skin care range after all). Here’s another version of the ‘Lego’ Chanel clutch and I’m having all the bag envy right now. This is a luncheon event for W magazine and the fresh faced look works perfectly; no one wants to go all out for a daytime shindig.

Keri Russell Fox all starIt’s the TCA winter tour and a whole host of parties and panels have taken place including the Fox All-Star event. Keri Russell switched up this outfit for the Americans panel but kept the leather jacket and monochrome palette. I’ve been watching a lot Felicity recently so it’s been a whole lot of knitwear, Russell can totally pull of the leather badass style and this is a stunning look even if I tend to dislike white pumps. As always her hair looks beyond incredible and The Americans is high on my most anticipated list.

Gillian JacobsGilliam Jacobs attended a Chanel hosted event launching Drew Barrymore’s new book of photography and I’m mesmerized by this hypnotic frock. It reminds me of those 60s art prints and of the dress I wore on New Year’s Eve; I love the different textures and patterns and it makes it hard to look away.

Golden Globes PromoTina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Golden Globes style has already been covered and yet somehow this promo shot slipped under our radar; it’s too damn good to leave out and totally fits in with this week’s “Out of the Box” theme.

American Horror StoryIt’s hard to believe that we haven’t discussed how incredible Frances Conroy is on AHS: Coven and while I still can’t work out if I actually enjoy the show – it’s definitely a hot mess – I’m super into Conroy’s Myrtle as a Grace Coddington/Vivienne Westwood inspired hybrid. The black and white polka dots combined with the leather yellow gloves is perfection and Myrtle has quite the thing for fashion as she refers to the DVF wrap dress as the greatest invention of our time.

Zooey Deschanel Kate SpadeFrom this shot it looks like your average polka dot dress (which you know we would love), instead those dots are actually apples and this is the second week in a row for Kate Spade and New Girl on this list. Paired with a red cardigan and bowed belted this is an excellent daytime take on monochrome. You can buy this Kate Spade New York Domino dress here (and it’s almost half off).

Pre Golden Globes Best Dressed – Michelle Dockery

12 Jan

Happy Golden Globes Day! Or what TV Ate My Wardrobe likes to refer to as Happy Amy and Tina Day! Award season is in full swing which means plenty of pre-Globes parties and so many outfits to pour over. Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery has been doing the rounds and she’s not sticking to one style, color or pattern choice. For this reason we’re naming her the pre-Golden Globes best dressed (a highly coveted title) and we can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing later today.

Yellow and orange tones can be hard to pull off and throwing black into the mix could end up with bumble bee comparisons. Not so with this Barbara Casasola ensemble and there’s nothing stiff upper lip looking about this gown.

On the same day, Michelle Dockery hit the Audi sponsored Golden Globes celebration in an equally vibrant outfit. This time opting for bold contrasting tartan in Altuzarra. The yellow Christian Louboutin pumps could be a step too far but thanks to understated hair and makeup it complements rather than clashes.

Toning it down for yesterday’s DuJour magazine cover party (celebrating Lupita Nyong’o – another person who is high on our most anticipated list tonight) in a Moshino jumpsuit. Now, jumpsuits tend to send me running for the hills and yet I’m drawn to this one; the wide leg, button down, Peter Pan collar combo all factor into why this is a terrific outfit. The pop of lip color and relaxed tousled hair sets it apart from the previously two outfits and shows Dockery’s playful side.

Josh Charles Discusses The Good Wife and Golden Globes

2 Jan

The supporting actor/actress TV categories at the Golden Globes include comedy, drama, mini-series and TV movie. This is a lot of different types of shows to cover and it often resembles a strange mix of genre and quite often famous faces. This year is no different and The Good Wife’s Josh Charles is the only network representative with comedy getting completely shut out – the other four nominees are Aaron Paul, Rob Lowe, Jon Voight and Corey Stoll – and he sat down with Gold Derby to chat about this nomination and this excellent season of The Good Wife.

The Good Wife Network vs. cable is discussed and Charles explains that he goes back and forth on the notion that it’s unfair to compare the two. What he does mention is that “good writing is good writing” and The Good Wife has been consistently on top of their game, with season 5 taking it to the next level. Time and structure are two constraints as cable has far fewer episodes and tend to shoot the bulk, if not all of them before they air. Whereas typically The Good Wife is only four episodes ahead of what has aired. This does work in their favor sometimes as they can respond to current news events and the references don’t feel stale by the time it is broadcast.

Individual episodes like “Hitting the Fan” and “The Giving Tree” are reference and both serve as series highlights. Getting into Will’s psyche was a fun experience for Charles as it’s rare for Will to drop his mask and from this Sunday’s preview (which you can watch below) it looks like Will has put the defenses back up and is using arrogance once again as a coping strategy.

Josh Charles has already directed two episodes and he reveals that episode 19 is his next time at the helm. When talking about guest stars he mentions Victor Garber. I am beyond excited that Spy Daddy is showing up on both Sleepy Hollow and The Good Wife in the coming weeks.

Watch the full interview and promo for this Sunday’s episode “Goliath and David” below.

Amy Poehler Covers Paper Magazine and the New Golden Globes Promo

9 Dec

Next month Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting their second consecutive Golden Globe Awards and I think it’s safe to say that all the good things I can remember about last year pretty much come from this pair. If my Twitter feed is anything to go by then award season is in full flow and it’s the Golden Globes that I’m looking forward to the most thanks to the hosts, the copious amounts of booze on the tables and the combined TV/film factor. And hey a trailer has been released and it’s awesome (you can see it at the bottom). Amy Poehler is also gracing the cover of the holiday issue of Paper magazine.

Amy Poehler paper magazine

Poehler discusses a whole host of topics including the selfie explosion – “the amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control” – what it’s like to be on a show with a unstable future, a New York memory of Lou Reed and her first festive season at SNL and what an amazing/surreal experience that was

“I remember a Christmas show with Elijah Wood… So you say goodnight onstage, and then you run really fast, and put ice skates on, and you get to ice skate at Rockefeller Center. And that was the first time I ever: 1) skated at Rockefeller Center, and 2) skated along with 10 other people that were my friends. It was snowing, it was Christmas and the day before, we all got to go to the The Lord of the Rings premiere. I was a big fan of the films. And I remember thinking, ‘Oh, this is totally awesome.'”

As with most things Amy Poehler related the interview is incredibly irreverent, while also hitting on some touching notes too.  To read the whole piece head here.

The super cute cat hat on the cover photo is from Eugina Kim and the coat is Louis Vuitton.

Check out the Golden Globes promo below.
