Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Mar

A quieter week for “Out of the Box,” but a very good one for magazine content including gasp worthy covers and a reunion that warmed my soul. It was exactly what I needed to see on Wednesday when I was knee deep in work. So, thank you for that.

There are also ladysuits, animal print, kitties and some very good costume design. This is from last week at a FYC event (Emmy season is coming!), but I missed it and I can’t not include Cody Fern demonstrating that leopard print makes for a perfect button-down shirt choice. This is how you add sartorial flair to a black suit.

Fern plays David Madson on American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and was a revelation. Here he looks nothing like his ACS character; the hair wave he is serving up is fantastic. Sound the ladysuit klaxon! At the A Series of Unfortunate Events season two premiere, Allison Williams gives great menswear in Gabriela Hearst.

Timeless continues to be the most fun and delightful show that also has me wanting to know more about the historical events they cover. This cast also continues to be the most fun and delightful as evidenced on Abigail Spencer’s Instagram.

The most recent episode, “Hollywoodland” paid homage to Queen Hedy Lamarr and also featured some stunning ’40s costumes. And the Timeless lipstick game is so strong right now. This Gucci jumpsuit has recently graced these pages, but it is definitely worth a second look on Holly Taylor. This is from Anna Silman’s profile of Taylor for The Cut and Silman is one of my favorite interviewers at the moment . In the piece they talk about Taylor’s background growing up in this industry and what she plans on doing next.

And for all things Americans season six as Paige falls further into the spy biz here is my review of the amazing premiere and my interview with costume designer Katie IrishGrown-ish star and TV Ate My Wardrobe fave gives great cover on Essence. And for Grown-ish style tips, here is where you find a lot of the costumes; this is a show that mixes aspirational and affordable. This made me gasp in the best way. It has been a very good week for Christina Aguilera including this Drag Race moment.

Paper continues to do very interesting things and this is beautiful (song title ref intended). But this isn’t an indictment on makeup because as Aguilera mentions in the interview “I mean, I’m a girl that likes a beat face, let’s not get it twisted.” We can do both.
Entertainment Weekly excels when it comes to WB reunions—first Felicity, then Buffy—and this Dawson’s Creek issue hits all those sweet nostalgia spots. It is always heartening when a cast comes back to celebrate the show that made them famous and they do this in spades.

There is a 55-minute reunion show which delivers on the feeeeeeelings and fun including Michelle Williams seeing the Crying Dawson meme for the first timeI yelled with joy about this on Twitter because there is nothing better than Michelle Williams opting for a cover with Busy Philipps over a solo shot. As Joanna Robinson put it “Let’s all enjoy the fact that Michelle Williams clearly has a Busy rider.” Yes this is now my lock screen image. Yes I am extra when it comes to this friendship.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

12 Aug

Saying goodbye, reunions, dancing and costume fun are all on the “Behind the Insta-Scenes” menu this week.

 

Jessica Williams put a selfie stick to good use backstage on Jon Stewart’s final Daily Show. That’s a whole lot of correspondents. Fun fact – my misty eyes started when Nancy Carell appeared, they leveled out for a bit and then Stephen Colbert destroyed me.

 

And a slightly less crowded group shot sans stick.

Bye, bye bedroom #LastDaysOfDownton #marysbedroom

Downton Abby also ended its shooting run this week and Michelle Dockery says goodbye to Lady Mary’s bedroom (which will hopefully see some Matthew Goode action as I don’t want him to have left The Good Wife for nothing).

 

The You’re the Worst portion of this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes” starts with a rendition of Sunday Funday.

True love. @ketherdonohue

A post shared by Aya Cash (@maybeayacash) on

 

All the heart eye face emojis pointed in the direction of Kether Donohue and Aya Cash. I am once again left wondering what shade/color Aya Cash’s lipstick is.

 

Continuing her amazing sunglasses game off screen as well as on and digging the new shorter locks now they’ve finished shooting season 2 of You’re the Worst.

Season 2 wrap party. #YTWFXX

And one final You’re the Worst shot. I am so ready for season 2.

 

The magical fashion unicorn strikes again and Diane Kruger is making me covet suspenders even though I know it would look far more costumy and a lot less cool chic on myself.

 

Dancing up a storm at the Hamilton Opening Night after party and Lucy Liu’s dress looks fantastic here.

Some things never change… @chacecrawford

Okay this is pretty adorable and the only major difference is the facial fuzz they are both sporting.

 

Another teen show reunion and this one hits me on a much deeper level – a poster of Dawson and Pacey had pride of place in my bedroom when I was 14 – they are joined by Stephen Colbert for PaceyCon (or TCA).

 

TVLine’s Michael Ausiello and Hanh Nguyen took their TCA Awards duties to the next level by wearing costumes and wigs from The Americans to present Outstanding Achievement in Drama to this show. Matthew Rhys’ expression is as magnificent as his grizzly hiatus beard (which is more likely for his guest appearance on The Bastard Executioner)

 

Teddy Sears has moved from Masters of Sex to The Flash and here is showing what goes on between takes.

#tbt BTS season 3 🍊

A post shared by Kimiko Glenn (@ohlittleasianone) on

 

I have a whole lot of feelings about this pairing on Orange is the New Black and this #TBT which goes back to the end of season 3.

 

Taking a break from Mindy Project outfit wish list to show off her bump and a not so thrilled face.

 

Blind contact lenses are not kind to Maisie Williams’ eyes and also lead to slightly surreal videos. Wishful thinking is that if Sophie Turner is with her then this means a Sansa/Arya scene is in the works (sadly I highly doubt this).

 

Leaving you with this thought from Sophie Turner which in turn made me think of all those brief but all feelings encompassing bathroom friendships.
