Best of the 2017 SAG Red Carpet: Suits, Velvet and More

30 Jan

Now for part 2 of the TV Ate My Wardrobe SAG coverage. For speech highlights and all things that sparkle head here. On the menu we have plenty of suits, a whole lot velvet, the kids from Stranger Things and some classic style. maisie-williamsMaisie Williams looks like a 1940s movie starlet in a light pink satin Charlie Brear dress and now I want to see her in something set in this period.

Also, thanks to Racked for this lipstick post which includes details of how to get Maisie (and Evan Rachel Wood’s) killer lip color. evan-rachel-woodMore ladysuit goodness from Evan Rachel Wood and this time she has opted for a midnight blue double-breasted velvet by Altuzarra. This kicks off the big velvet trend of the night and I am all for this material making a comeback.judith-lightQueen Judith Light also taking in the blue velvet (*cue song*) and crushing it in Tom Ford.kirsten-dunstNewly engaged Kirsten Dunst (sadly no Jesse Plemons on the red carpet) looks like she might have wedding dresses on her mind and this Dior would work down the aisle, but isn’t so bridal that it is out of place here. The combination of the statement necklaces and metallic straps works like a charm.sarah-paulson-sagSarah Paulson has been all about the sparkles of late, but for the SAG awards she went classic in a black strapless Vera Wang dress and an amazing ivory cape. Red lipstick and big earrings are the way to go here.

I mentioned it in the first post already and yet it is worth repeating that in Sarah Paulson’s speech she mentioned donating to the ACLU and you can do that here.mahershala-aliAnother speech I highlighted in part 1 of this SAG coverage was Mahershala Ali’s, which is both emotional and important. Ali continues his super suave domination and this time he wears a Ermenegildo Zegna Couture white tuxedo.michiel-husimanMore velvet and all the swoons because Michiel Huisman.rami-malekAn Ilaria Urbinati double bill coming your way and first up Rami Malek in a Dior suit that stands out and works because he is Rami Malek.riz-ahmedA touch of velvet is sometimes all you need as Riz Ahmed shows with the lapels on his Zegna tux.glen-powellFor delightfully classic in his tuxedo choice there is Glenn Powell.simon-helberg-and-jocelyn-towneThe most overt political statement on the SAG red carpet came from Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne who wore her feelings across her chest. Kudos to them for not keeping quiet and using this very public opportunity to demonstrate. It feels weird to bring fashion into this moment, but Helberg is also doing the velvet thing and it looks great on him. transparentLeopard print ladysuit! And Amy Landecker wasn’t the only person wearing this bold St John number and leopard continues to dominate. More blue velvet too from the Transparent cast and Alexandra Billings’ feather touch is fabulous. Oh hey Jay, you look lovely too.stranger-teensBarb got to come play! Stranger Things teens (well one of them is still a teen in this case – looking at you Shannon Purser) and the height of Joe Keery’s hair is maybe bigger than Jean Ralphio’s and I don’t know how that is possible. Natalia Dyer’s custom Miu Miu is both delicate and bold and I love that Shannon Purser has gone full black gown and red lip.stranger-kidsStranger Things kids continue to have the most fun and somehow it is still super charming. They’re also still some of the best dressed people on the red carpet in brands that are affordable (see Finn Wolfhard’s teal Topman suit) and on the splurge end with Millie Bobby Brown in red Armani.

Variety Actors on Actors or Pick Your Dream Dinner Date (Part 2)

9 Jun

The Hollywood Reporter has their award season roundtables gathering a group of actors/writers/showrunners who are at the top of their game and over at Variety they do things one-on-one getting the actors to interview other actors. Last year I referred to this setup as picking your dream dinner dates and that still stands with the line-up this year.

So far only a handful of the full videos are available on YouTube (you can find them all on Variety) and they are ideal viewing if you are suffering from show withdrawal or if like me you just love this time of year when TV awards chat is in full focus. Courtney B. Vance and Tracee Ellis RossFirst up we have Courtney B. Vance and Tracee Ellis Ross in this almost 40-minute extravaganza discussing everything from college, to the OJ Simpson trial and discussions of race on Black-ish.

And in people I didn’t know went to high school together; Rami Malek and Kirsten Dunst. Also love that Kirsten Dunst would listen to Dolly Parton’s “Here I Am” before scenes in which Peggy was particularly feeling herself.

Talking about producing material and creating their own work with Master of None and Confirmation. Plus audition chat and now I’m left wondering which two shows Kerry Washington got fired off for the horrific reason of not sounding ‘urban’ enough. Is one of them Wonderfalls? On a fashion note I have already mentioned how much I love Kerry Washington’s dress and I will be doing so again.

Jay Duplass tells a very funny story about having more sexual partners on screen in one season of Transparent than he has in his whole life and Emilia Clarke reveals why she ended up dancing in her Game of Thrones audition (always blame Diet Coke).

And finally from two Ryan Murphy projects we have Jamie Lee Curtis and Lady Gaga with Lady Gaga explaining how she got on board the American Horror Story train (she called him) and where Gaga ends and Stephanie begins. Turns out that Robert Durst is the surprising influence for Gaga’s performance on AHS.

It is not just one on one interviews Variety are gifting us this award season and you can watch a supporting actor roundtable featuring Regina King, Jonathan Banks, Miranda Otto, Anthony Mackie, Christian Slater and Maggie Siff here.

Updated to add this super delightful chat between Sam Heughan and Krysten Ritter. Heughan talks about the Outlander costumes and how helpful they are, which leads to Krysten Ritter breaking down Jessica’s unchanging wardrobe. They win my heart in an instant.

Check back for more Emmy chat here soon.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 Apr

It is that time of year when Emmy related activities are beginning from the Variety “Actors on Actors” series to the most recent FX Upfront screening of American Crime Story. This means a lot of TV stars out and about so along with our usual behind the scenes set antics there is also plenty of promo stuff occurring. Plus a whole array of other events from the week.

 

Confession – I still have not caught any Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (I know), but I am still super psyched about this Instagram reveal and it is up there on the former roommate scale with Connie Britton and Lauren Graham.

 

Another amazing group of women and the “Fierce Verse: Feminist as Fuck” event is everything I want from a night of entertainment right down to Amber Tamblyn, Amy Poehler and Carrie Brownstein reading an Entourage script.

Also at the same FX Upfronts event another pair of co-star cuties.

 

#CoatGoals and heart eye emoji faces.

 

Cherishing these Good Wife behind the scenes photos as the end is so close and also looking for clues; is this indicating that Lucca is representing Peter? This is definitely a courtroom scene.

 

Kerry Washington’s Confirmation tour is all about the floral frocks; perfect for spring sunshine (sorry if you are currently experiencing unseasonable snow where you are this week).

 

Another shot of this fabulous Kerry Washington dress (and probably my favorite of the four) as she takes part in Variety’s Actors on Actors; Emmy discussion season is upon us and I am always giddy for these one on one conversations and forthcoming roundtables.

 

Darts are also on the menu as well as actors chatting about actorly things and Rami shines in both the scoring and stripes department.

 

Uzo Aduba is currently performing on London’s West End in The Maids along side Fresh Meat’s Zawe Ashton and Lady Edith herself Laura Carmichael. The trio hit up the Olivier Awards red carpet and do the selfie thing with Stephen Oremus. Lipstick bonus points awarded to Zawe Ashton.

 

Now for a very random pairing with Bill Hader and Marcia Clark on stage with Gil and George.

More fancy pants behind the scenes shenanigans with a relaxed edge at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Plus babies, celebrating the return of Agent Carter and some A+ 70s outfits.

 

Will Forte showed that his new half-shaved look wasn’t just a onetime TCA affair (his entire body is like this, yep everything) and gave Justin Theroux’s expressive eyebrows a workout of Leftovers proportions at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

 

Award shows can all get a bit much for some. The Jane the Virgin table also featured heavily in reactions to the super adorable Jacob Tremblay. They are all of us.

A very super smiley Liv Tyler on her way to the awards and it is probably a very good thing that she didn’t have to lie down to avoid crease awkwardness.

 

This looks like the exact kind of thing Tom Haverford would dream up and the fact that it is very real makes me so happy.

 

Also to be filed under “things that seem too magical to be true” is Kroll Show originals Gil and George appearing on The Bachelor live show and Jenny Slate filming her reaction. Yep, I still miss Kroll Show, but I am thrilled that Gil and George are still out there in the world.

A smorgasbord of pattern clashing and bold color from the many outfit changes for Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project. Even by this shows standards this is a lot for one day and it’s hard to pick a favorite; edging toward the floral sweater and pajamas with the dragonfly dress also wrestling for top place.

Jessica Jones has been renewed and I can’t see S2 Jessica wearing any other jeans than these ones.

 

 

While I’m on the subject of jeans – I am coveting these ones Gina Rodriguez is wearing hard and the whole 70s vibe of this outfit is ticking all the boxes.

 

Going full 1970s and the Vinyl costuming is part of the reason why I am looking forward to this show. Those glasses are everything.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Aug

TCA continues and so do the cute patterned frocks on this week’s “Out of the Box.” a dash of a couple of other events and magazine covers.

Kerry WashingtonThis kind of reminds me of a colorful version of the wallpaper in Sherlock’s 221b Baker Street, which doesn’t necessarily sound like the compliment it is meant to be. Kerry Washington looks great in Mary Katrantzou at the ABC day at TCA.

Viola DavisViola Davis was also part of the TGIT panel at TCA and she switched out her heels for far more comfy looking flats for the photocall. They might not completely go with this patterned cocktail dress, but I’m all for her continuing this trend.

Elizabeth HenstridgeThere is a lot going on here with Elizabeth Henstridge in House of Holland and yet it manages to stay this side of psychedelic experiment. It feeds into everything I love about a very 70s sleeping bag I once had (but with less orange/brown). Once again this doesn’t sound like the good thing I was intending it too.

Camilla LuddingtonThis outfit is super cute and Camilla Luddington’s lipstick blouse gets added to the list of clothes I need with a makeup motif. Maybe I need to change this to “What Lipstick Top is She Wearing?”

Chace Crawford and Ed WestwickYou know you love me. xoxo

P.S. This really making me want to start that Gossip Girl rewatch that I am always talking about and have no time for right now.

TransparentAt the Transparent panel they announced the season 2 premiere date (December 4!) and Jay Duplass ditched the top button done up styling of his character Josh, while Judith Light is a vision in white.

Joanna FroggattThe Downton Abby cast are starting their final hurrah and Joanne Froggatt stood out at the TCA photocall in Ermanno Scervino’s fun take on houndstooth adding a pop of color with red strappy sandals.

Taraji P HensonAt the Empire panel on Thursday Taraji P. Henson went for simple chic in a long sleeve Cushnie et Ochs teal dress adding oomph to this look with embellished Alaïa sandals.

Christina BaranskiMoving onto the Ricki and the Flash premiere with Christine Baranski killing it off screen as much as she does when she is Diane Lockhart.

Laverne CoxA very fun twist to the standard mini dress from Laverne Cox in Elizabeth & James paired with studded white Louboutins. This blue is really great on her as is the vampy shade of red lipstick.

Christina ApplegateChristina Applegate goes for 70s inspired plunging glam in a stunning Naeem Khan at the 5th Annual Celebration of Dance Gala presented by the Dizzy Feet Foundation.

Idris ElbaIdris Elba is the first guy to appear on the cover of Maxim (this fact surprised me) and boy did they pick a very striking cover image. Never before have I considered buying this magazine, but they might have me with this fantastic editorial including Idris wearing so many good coats.

Jenji KohanThere’s no mistaking who the cover star of Variety’s female showrunner issue is this week with Jenji Kohan’s recognizable specs and colorful hair. This quote from The Affair’s Sarah Treem really resonates “This is not about rah-rah girl power. This is about advice on how to literally run a show and adapt to what you’re given in a way that can make it work. “It’s helpful to have people tell you you’re not crazy to be struggling with it, and also helpful to have people tell you you have to adjust the way you’re working.”

Kirsten DunstA couple of week’s ago I mentioned how my teenage love for Kirsten Dunst was likely to resurface as a result of Fargo season 2 and as if on schedule upon seeing her editorial in the September issue of Town & Country I clapped with glee upon seeing the photos. There’s a little 70s styling in the woodland shots which is entirely appropriate given the setting. In the interview Dunst mentions how she got some helpful advice regarding the TV transition:

“TV is a lot harder than film. A lot harder. When I got the part, my friend Lizzy [Caplan], who is on Masters of Sex, said, ‘Be sure to get B12 shots to get you through the week.’ I was like, ‘Really? That sounds very dramatic, Lizzy.’ By the third week I was all over the B12. It was one of the best roles I’ve ever played—the writing is spectacular—but by the end I was tapped out.”

Dunst also briefly discusses her Fargo character Peggy Blomquist “She is very much like me at ​my craziest, my mother at her craziest, my grandma at her craziest. I could really combine the nutsiest parts of the women in my family.”

More shows have gone back to work and so TV Instagram is brimming with behind the scenes sneak peeks. Plus costume treats, reunions aplenty and some fantastic song/dance numbers.

 

It is summer TCA time and things kicked off yesterday with a whole host of Netflix panels including The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And this joyous lip sync moment happened on the plane. It’s not Peeno Noir, but it is just as Flawless (I’ll see myself out).

 

Jenny Slate took over Bust’s Instagram in honor of her amazing cover and what better way to celebrate than with a kitchen dance party.

 

The Mindy Project has found a new home on Hulu for season 4 and here are some of the cast back in action. Beard bonus points are awarded to Jay Duplass.

 

Ultimate #TBT time with one of my favorite actresses (and all important teen hair influencer) in one of my favorite places.

Surprise friendships on Orange is the New Black played a big part in how much I enjoyed season 3 as it not only created new dynamics, but it also added to the emotional impact. Spirituality was also a big story driver and Soso found it hard to connect with anyone and spiraled; Poussey came to her rescue and hopefully this photo indicates that their friendship continues.

 

When Empire returns in September it will be interesting to see who falls in what camp and Jamal could be the most conflicted. Digging Cookie in polka dots.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 Feb

Award season continues which means there’s plenty more fabulous outfits on display in this week’s “Out of the Box.” Plus magazine editorials and other red carpet events with more pleasing sartorial offerings.

Emma StoneAt the Oscar nominee luncheon Emma Stone wears the dream combination of stripes and polka dots. Throw in some sequins on this Michael Kors ensemble and I am in clothing heaven. Now to find out what color lipstick Stone is wearing.

Laura DernAt the same event Laura Dern wears a multicolored Roland Mouret dress which I can’t stop staring; it is both hypnotic and elegant.

America FerreraMore Oscar events and America Ferrera is a shimmery delight at The Hollywood Reporter nominee night party wearing Pamella Roland Resort 2015. So much sparkle to add to the trend that was big at the Golden Globes.

Jay DuplassSo maybe the pants are a tad creased but it has been a busy month for Jay Duplass at Sundance, promoting a new show and on the awards circuit. Duplass is once again king of the patterned shirt although his Transparent character would definitely have it buttoned to the top.

Jenny SlateJenny Slate has me longing for warmer weather in this very pretty Dolce & Gabbana floral frock at the Virtuoso Awards. Kicking up the cute with bow detail Christian Louboutin ‘Justinodo’ sandals.

Kerry WashingtonAdding to one of the most delightful editions of “Out of the Box” is Kerry Washington in polka dot Dolce & Gabbana at the launch party for the new spring Scandal inspired collection at The Limited. Love the Roger Vivier ‘Love’ bag and red lip/nail combo.

Sophie turner town and countryLooking like a far less watery Ophelia from the John Everett Millais painting is Sophie Turner in a super romantic shoot for Town & CountryIn the piece there is a hint of a ‘deeper, darker’ Sansa to come – something I am anticipating – as well as a discussion regarding how passive Sansa has been in the past in comparison to other female characters “At first I thought it was her age, but then I watched Arya becoming this young warrior and it was so frustrating. I kept wanting to do a massive empowering speech or kick ass like Maisie. Then I started realizing that Sansa’s got a whole different mindset, that she’s slowly but surely getting there in her own way. It’s how she survives.” Roll on season 5 and the Game of Thrones magazine cover onslaught which Emilia Clarke dominated last year; will she get the most again?

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Jan

Coats, tights, sweaters and boots aplenty this week with the Sundance Film Festival style. Plus party dresses, magazine covers and a slightly different approach to walking in the snow.

Greta GerwigAt the Mistress America premiere Greta Gerwig does the cute patterned dress, tights and ankle boots thing with aplomb.

Greta Gerwig SundanceAnd because I couldn’t choose which outfit I liked best here is a Greta Gerwig’s slightly more casual look for the Sundance portrait session with more incredible boots and an animal print top. Gerwig co-wrote Mistress America with Noah Baumbach and as Frances Ha was my favorite film of 2013 I have high hopes for this one. Kicking things off nicely in charming style.

Kathryn HahnTicking all the boxes – coat, dress, boots, tights – is Kathryn Hahn and I love Sundance fashion because we get to see a less flashy form of movie promoting style. And I love Kathryn Hahn.

Jessica WilliamsJessica Williams works the layering and an excellent pair of brown boots (pattern socks plus) in her portrait for People, Places, Things.

Mark and Jay DuplassCute brothers alert with Mark and Jay Duplass at the premiere for The Overnight (which I am looking forward to for many reasons). I have seen photos of Mark Duplass from this Sundance wearing a Henley in three different colors and it is a signature piece I am all for. They aren’t just for the guys on the CW.

Cobie SmuldersThis Coach sweater caught my eye back when I wrote a Robyn sweater wish list (pausing to take a moment to wonder once again where Robyn has gone) and now a Robin of a different spelling and show is wearing it. Cobie Smulders looks casual cool at her portrait session for Unexpected.

Keri Russell heelsThis might not be the best kind of footwear for the weather, but snow or not I would find it a challenge to walk in any stilettos. Luckily, Keri Russell is much more coordinated in this department as she heads to the Today Show and this is a super stylish (if not a little chilly) outfit. Very into the coat draped over the shoulders look and the color of this outerwear. Also eyeing up the divine floral Victoria Beckham skirt.

Maisie Williams EW partyThis week Maisie Williams championed dresses with pockets (which are my favorite kind of dresses) and at the Entertainment Weekly pre-SAG bash she wore another very cute pocketed ensemble in Reem Juan.

IMG_1224Bust is on a roll with putting ladies we love on the cover (and this is one reason why I am a subscriber) and now Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are in the spotlight. The editorial has a Thelma & Louise theme and if you were wondering then yes I am still laughing about this week’s episode.

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.

HBO’s Best of 2014/What’s to Come in 2015 Video Includes New Game of Thrones Shots

23 Dec

HBO has said goodbye to two longstanding staples, welcomed back one from long ago, delivered top notch episodes from both new and old shows and they’re set to do it all again in 2015. This video celebrates the best of 2014 while also revealing what is coming in the new year.

These moments are brief and if you want to go straight to the “Coming in 2015” portion skip to 1.37 where you will see a variety of pensive looking Game of Thrones characters including Cersei and Tyrion. Also on the returning shows ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ new footage list are VeepLooking and GirlsTrue Detective gets a title card and The Leftovers is a shot of Justin Theroux in aviators, which is the best placeholder for a show with no new material as of yet. Queen Latifah is going down the biopic route playing iconic blues singer Bessie Smith in Bessie, Dwayne Johnson will star in the half-hour dramedy Ballers and the Duplass brothers are bringing Togetherness.

It has been a very good year for HBO with Boardwalk Empire going out on a creative high, True Detective delivering two of the performances of the year, producing one of my favorite episodes of the 2014 with Looking’s “Looking for the Future,” outrage and laughter in equal measure with a side order of shirt approval while watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, bringing back Valerie Cherish and introducing Carrie Coon to the non-theatre world.

Here is a look at all of that and more:
