Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Jun

The pattern theme continues much to my delight and Look of the Week is awash once again with some bold ensembles. It’s summer so this makes total sense.

Plenty of premieres, more awards and July issues of magazines continue to wow. September, you have a lot to live up to.

For some sporty and sparkly chic check out style crush Tatiana Maslany and my article on the new (and wonderful) Netflix series GLOW.At the BET Awards Issa Rae is bold stripe delight in Balmain pairing a blazer with short shorts and sandals. Everything about this look is a dream and Rae tops it off with the perfect pink lipstick.And while we’re on the subject of Issa Rae, here is the season 2 promo poster for Insecure and the premiere date is less than a month away! Never has a poster made me want to go for a swim more than this. Excellent swimsuit choice too.The third week in a row for Zendaya as the Spider-Man: Homecoming promo tour continues. So far there has been a stunning Vogue cover, putting a bird on it and now mixing fun and sophistication in stripes and ruffled Altuzarra.

A velvet trench doesn’t really scream the month of June, but just know I am very much coveting Karen Gillan’s Self Portrait coat dress. This week’s florals come from Jenny Slate at the Despicable Me LA premiere in Alice McCall. The heavy print and fringe makes this dress feel a little rug-adjacent, but the slightly sheer element gives it a much lighter look. Great gold sandals too.At the Younger season 4 premiere, Sutton Foster looks like she came straight from rom-com set in the ’80s in polka dot Saloni. This is of course a compliment of the highest order.In ‘July gives great cover’ news; bow down to Serena Williams and Vanity Fair. After letting my subscription lapse a few months ago, VF is making a great play to get me to sign back up again with two excellent cover stories in a row. 

The interview goes into detail about how Serena and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian got together and what Serena did when she found out she was pregnant just before the Australian Open kicked off. A tournament she won without dropping a single set. It is a celebration of all things Serena and I cannot wait to pick up this magazine. In just over two weeks, Game of Thrones returns so get ready for TV talk to be dominated by this juggernaut. First up a super fun Time cover story and design that mixes religious iconography with Pop Art colors and Old Hollywood; you can read all about photographer Miles Aldridge’s concept here. There’s also a little Twin Peaks and my dream to now have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau playing the prime suspect in an Agatha Christie adaptation.

Sophie Turner in Gucci (currently crushing it as the brand of the moment) is my favorite of the portraits in a shot that looks like a fucked up and fashionable fairy tale.

Also over at Vanity Fair they picked out two important details from the piece and the first one is something I cannot wait to see in the new season.Preacher is back and the first two episodes are super fun. Plus Tulip is once again a major TV style crush mixing feminine summer dresses with edgy leather. Ruth Negga has been a regular presence here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and her cover/editorial for Town & Country is another style hit including the above dreamy shot of Negga in Fendi. In the piece Negga talks about how much she loves books and her favorite show growing up was My So-Called Life.

As if I needed another reason to think we could be besties, on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Negga talked about how much she loves Grease 2, which is also my favorite of the Grease movies. So much so that I even managed to slip a reference to it in this Wonder Woman essay I wrote for Elle.

All my fave actresses talk about Grease 2 on The Tonight Show.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Apr

Award season is never truly over and the GLAAD Media Awards delivers on some fantastic black and white ensembles. Plus a whole lot of stripes, IRL friendships and some heartbreak in this edition of “Out of the Box.”Judith Light serving up her usual red carpet domination thanks to the drama of the shoulders/abs and that fabulous ring at the GLAAD Media Awards.White gowns were on trend for the Transparent cast and Trace Lysette looks fabulous posing with Moonlight writer Tarell Alvin McCraney as he switches out his white Oscar tux for this dashing number. Moonlight won Outstanding Film and Transparent was awarded Outstanding Comedy Series. While we’re on the subject of dashing and Moonlight here is Trevante Rhodes giving great floral and patterned tie at the GLAAD Media Awards.Tatiana Maslany has done the post-show ending hair chop and I love this length on her. Going for a fun spin on the ladysuit with a tee and fancy shoes; plus some pins supporting great causes.

The ‘&’ pin is from GLAAD and was worn by many in attendance. The other is for Planned Parenthood and can be purchased here; there’s a lot of great pins at the moment and ones which raise awareness and funds are even better.

In keeping with the Planned Parenthood theme as this tank by Otherwild also includes a donation. This photo was taken by Tatiana Maslany’s Orphan Black co-star Kristian Bruun and is classic casual Maslany. Also her hair continues to look great.More in the co-stars hanging out department with the Mr Robot siblings at the Montblanc and UNICEF gala dinner at the New York Public Library (what a location to have a dinner). Rami Malek takes his shirt game to the next level and once again Ilaria Urbinati gives him a great suit to wear.

I also sometimes forget that Malek and Carly Chaikin aren’t really brother and sister because look at them. Good work Mr Robot casting team.

Big Little Lies is all I can think about (for my deep dive into the Audrey Hepburn costumes head here) and the IRL friendship between Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern is everything. Reese gifted us with four different shots of them on the beach and yes this is my current phone lock screen photo.Sarah Steele makes everything better and I’m so glad they brought Marissa Gold back for the The Good Fight. At the Speech & Debate premiere Steele does the whole casual cool vibe and this is a fun take on stripes that I now definitely want in my closet.

You can think clearly only with your clothes on.-Margaret Atwood #handmaidstale

A post shared by Elisabeth Moss (@elisabethmossofficial) on

I am very excited about The Handmaid’s Tale adaptation and all the Elisabeth Moss this is going to give us on the promo tour. Not to mention that we’ve got a second Top of the Lake season to look forward to. This Michael Kors ensemble gives great stripes and also showcases how great stylist Karla Welch’s eye is.At Kimmel (not in the outfit she wore on the show) and Jenny Slate is clearly loving her Rachel Comey shoes (the TV Ate My Wardrobe jury is still out). The rest of Slate’s outfit makes me want to drink cocktails somewhere in Cape Cod and I’m also thrilled to see a regular looking shirt after reading this recent Racked piece. And as the Fug Girls like to say; everyone looks hotter in sunglasses.The end of this week’s “Out of the Box” is sponsored by all the feelings and great outfits. Both in Dolce & Gabbana (they are both clients of other stylist fave Ilaria Urbinati) and both fantastic. Anyway, I’m gonna go reread Jada Yuan’s Vulture profile of Slate because it really is the best.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Mar

This week has seen the spotlight get turned on the amazing stylists who get actors red carpet ready with the annual Hollywood Reporter Top 25. We covered the issue here, but we’ve got party highlights and some treats from the number 1 name on that list throughout this post.

Plus SXSW delivers on the exact kind of outfits I am looking to now that spring is finally here (sorry for those who had snow this week). There’s also SNL musical performances and great late night outfits to enjoy.At the Hollywood Reporter Power Stylist dinner Sarah Paulson shows just why Karla Welch is a sartorial force to be reckoned with as she makes this peach Prada embellished frock look so much more low maintenance than it is. Love the Chinese style collar and strong brow.

Posing with the man of the hour – also wearing Prada – and showing that he’s also got the post-awards fashion sorted is Mahershala Ali. Such a strong shirt pattern choice and he’s making a statement that he’s fabulous.  Karla Welch is also good at dressing herself (which is a weird sentence to write) in this simple and summery long Rosie Assoulin gown. Also points for sensible flats for both Welch and Busy Philipps; who I am loving in all white. This night also provided A+ Busy Instagram stories with a guest appearance from Sarah Paulson who playfully mimicked Busy’s penchant for saying ‘guys.’In the way Sundance is to knits and coats, SXSW delivers on prints and super cute summer frocks. Jenny Slate is a SXSW regular and always delivers on the exact kind of outfits I would also want to wear (aside from the shoes his time). Bonus pocket points too! A busy SXSW for Noël Wells with premieres for Mr. Roosevelt and Infinity Baby. The above is at the latter and the matching star blast separates paired with black boots gives this look an edge. I really like Wells in season 1 of Master of None and I’m looking forward to seeing both of these projects, but especially Mr. Roosevelt as Wells writes, directs and stars in it.More Karla Welch picks showing just how versatile she is as a stylist as it isn’t all just award season and at the American Gods panel Emily Browning looks incredible in super floral Miu Miu and chunky Prada heels.

My intrigue levels for American Gods are set to high and while I don’t know the source material, the cast and creative team sell it to me alone. Plus this new trailer is giving me a whole lot of costume design thoughts already.At the Win it All premiere Stephanie Beatriz gives great wide-leg pants in stunning cobalt blue paired with a funky strapless top. I just bought some wide-leg pants and while I have no idea what shoes I’m gonna wear them with seeing Beatriz in this trend with this styling is giving me some ideas.Also going baggy is Lorde doing a full oversized suit thing at the Elvis Duran Z100 morning show and to keep with this week’s stylist theme she is another Karla Welch client.

Lorde performed on SNL and “Green Light” has been on repeat since it got released. More high-waisted/wide-leg and the backless sparkly top is everything.

Keri Russell loves a bit of leather for late night and much like myself she loves a bit of Grease 2 (it is the better movie, don’t @ me).

[Source]

For Seth Meyers she went all black with a splash of leopard print with her choice of Louboutins. And because I love all things celebrity real estate this sneak peek at her house (with bonus Matthew Rhys and baby in the background) is ticking those boxes. Makeup artist Tina Turnbow also gave a close up look of her work and I love a smoky eye.

There are two clips from the Seth Meyers interview; one is about the much talked about Matthew Rhys episode of Girls and this is the one that you can watch on a whole lot of entertainment/style websites. So we’ve opted for the second clip in which Keri Russell talks about the time she met Matthew Rhys ten years before The Americans and forgot about it until he reminded her.

Best of the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet

26 Feb

The Film Independent Spirit Awards are the soothing beachside afternoon jaunt we all need before the hustle and bustle of the Oscars; this is always one of my favorite red carpets of the year.

The outfits tend to be a little more on the chilled out and playful side with both pattern and color out in strong force and while I love the dramatic glamour of the Oscars this is much more my speed. Plus the dudes in suits tend to step out of the usual classic comfort zone and this year is no different.

And you get an incredible opening monologue like this one:

It’s strange seeing John Mulaney and Nick Kroll out of their Gil and George costumes after so many months of Oh, Hello.

Now for the best looks of the afternoon.janelle-monaeJanelle Monáe gives another lesson in how to wear black and white on every red carpet and keep things interesting. This time it is Salvatore Ferragamo and I’m digging those coat slung over the shoulders vibes. Great lipstick as per and as I said on Friday, Monáe is one my Oscar most anticipated.ruth-negga-and-colin-firthAnother person who has been a big awards sartorial presence is Ruth Negga and she is also very much on the anticipated list.

Accompanied by super handsome Loving producer Colin Firth going for the no tie/open button option and Negga is stunning in dramatic floral Delpozo.ava-duvernayFlying in from filming A Wrinkle in Time in New Zealand (as well documented on Instagram by Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon) is Ava DuVernay and this patterned Gucci number ticks so many boxes; pleats, botanicals, fabulous collar.naomie-harrisMulticolor patchwork Chanel for Naomie Harris and I love everything about this look except for the random bit of lace that looks like someone accidentally forgot to cut it off. Don’t be the Topshop school of somehow adding lace or tulle to things that don’t need them.taraji-p-hensonMullet dresses are very much hit or miss for me and Taraji P. Henson’s ethereal Giambattista Valli happily falls into the first category. The slightly windy conditions add some drama and those gold Jimmy Choo sandals are fabulous.nasim-pedradEntering mini dress territory with Nasim Pedrad in textured green florals.aubrey-plazaAubrey Plaza is a regular on this Spirit Awards rundown and the best thing about this is she takes a very different approach each time. Here she has taken a page out of the Janelle Monáe clashing black and white patterns book in a somewhat ’60s trippy Versus Versace top and skirt. Bonus lipstick points too.isabelle-huppertLooking cool as ever – this time in Chloé – and with the award for best actress to boot is Isabelle Huppert and I wonder if she will repeat this win tonight against Emma Stone.jon-hamm-edgar-ramirez-and-jenny-slateJenny Slate is in a handsome men in suits sandwich with Jon Hamm and Edgar Ramirez. Love her choice of Luisa Beccaria pleats and halter for this seaside venue. mahershala-aliNew dad Mahershala Ali continued his fabulous suit streak and the best thing about this is the red shoes he paired it with.

And I am finally seeing Moonlight this afternoon and this has been a very good movie watching weekend. trevante-rhodesKeeping the suave Moonlight cast score high is Trevante Rhodes in a double-breasted grey number paired with oxblood shoes.jaden-piner-and-alex-r-hibbertMore Moonlight and bonus delightful kids alert as Jaden Piner leans casual whereas Alex R. Hibbert does the tuxedo thing (but keeps things chill in white Vans).aldis-hodgeMy favorite suit of the day and Hidden Figures’ Aldis Hodge is giving great mixed patterns. The pocket square/pin/tie details give this three piece suit ensemble the edge over everyone else.viggoI saw rumblings on Twitter the other day that there might be a Casey Affleck upset tonight and that Viggo might be the reason. Regardless of whether he does win the Oscar, he looks great here in burgundy.david-oyelowoDavid Oyelowo had one of my favorite looks at the 2015 Spirit Awards in a knockout blue suit and this year he’s gone for something a little more subdued, but still just as stylish and his tie delivers a splash of color.nick-kroll-and-john-mulaneyAs I mentioned above it is going to take a little bit of time getting used to John Mulaney and Nick Kroll out of their Gil and George costumes/makeup. This is a good start and along with a hilarious and blistering monologue they both look fabulous.annette-beningEnding things on a super smiley Annette Bening looking cool as fuck in a black turtleneck. I saw 20th Century Women yesterday and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. This post has been written to Talking Heads because of this movie.

Come back tomorrow for plenty more red carpet posts.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

10 Feb

Awards season continues to dominate all things style with the big luncheon and DGA Awards taking place over the last week. Plus we’ve got the premieres for The Good Fight and Big Little Lies (both starting next Sunday), Berlin Film Festival jury highlights, on set with Broad City and partying with Madewell. Plus New York Fashion Week kicks off with a blizzard.

Also the TV Ate My Wardobe newsletter is back! Subscribe here.ruth-neggaAt the Oscar nominee luncheon Ruth Negga continues to dominate sartorially by pairing a super cute pastel sweater with a leather skirt; mixing sweet with edgy in Miu Miu. The whole look is fantastic including her lipstick and cool hand in the pocket posing.

I saw Loving at the weekend and her performance is amazing; understated and unshowy in a way that doesn’t always get recognized. isabelle-huppertIsabelle Huppert gives off every level incredible in a stunning print and sequin Armani Privé Spring 2017 look. Trying to avoid using the word ‘chic’ when talking about Huppert – because I don’t want to sound like a cliche – is hard.viola-davisThe prints they keep on coming and Viola Davis in Bottega Veneta is a perfect daytime event ensemble.emma-stone-and-ryan-goslingAt the DGA Awards Emma Stone manages to make me like fringe in Stella McCartney and her shortened tux jacket blends menswear inspiration with a super feminine gown. I also dig the mid-rolling up of the sleeves. Oh, hey Ryan Gosling.christine-baranskiMore sparkles for Christine Baranski at the premiere for The Good Fight and she looks as fabulous and classy as ever. Now how to score an invite to her lake house.good-fightVery much looking forward to having these ladies back on my screen and together again.

news that's not a national nightmare– we started shooting a very elegant season 4!! 😘

A post shared by abbi & ilana (@broadcity) on

Broad City S4 excitement is as high as these gowns are fancy. Very much need these ladies back in my life.

maggie-gyllenhaalMaggie Gyllenhaal is on the 2017 Berlin Film Festival jury and long sleeve florals paired with boots has been her go to style choice for both photo calls; it is really working for her. The pink bow is a cute touch here and this is very much in her cool, hippy mom wheelhouse.julia-jentsch-and-maggie-gyllenhaalAt the press conference this leans more ’90s and I love it. German actress Julia Jentsch paired a blue sweater with the most fabulous pants complete with colorful piping and silver pumps. I am looking forward to seeing more from both these ladies.

Conversation turned to politics at this event including asking fellow jury member Diego Luna about the wall and Gyllenhaal (who attended the Women’s March in Washington D.C.) said “I feel like I want to let the world know that there are many, many people in my country who are ready to resist.”withertwinsOne way to feel old is seeing kids of actors all grown up (see also Gillian Anderson and Ewan McGregor) and considering Reese Witherspoon was pregnant with Ava when she shot Cruel Intentions (teen movie fave) I feel oooooooold. The whole looking so much alike thing is also eerie and cool.

And of course they both look great at the Big Little Lies premiere in matching – but not really – style frocks. Haney gold floral for Ava Phillippe and gold heels, with Reese in sparkly Elie Saab.

Trench coats and gold shoes kind of Wednesday.

A post shared by Gina Rodriguez (@hereisgina) on

From gold pumps to gold flats and things have been super emotional on every Jane the Virgin cast member’s Insta this week for obvious reasons. Thankful for this very soothing and fabulous casual look from Gina Rodriguez.

Much to my delight (but maybe not my bank balance) Madewell has launched a new collection of intimates and this range looks equal parts sexy and comfortable. A good ratio when it comes to underwear. Madewell is a brand I adore as it caters to my casual classic sensibilities and they do really great stripe T-shirts (like I need anymore).

Both Jenny Slate and Zoe Kazan are in outfits I would wear/probably already have at the Madewell party they hosted. Great lipstick too.

New York Fashion Week begins with a whole lot of snow and at the Rag & Bone 15th anniversary and F/W ’17 event Keri Russell went all in on the cold weather clothing with her choice of hat; I’ve watched a lot of Fortitude recently and have been marveling over their very similar looking headwear to protect against the elements. It also very much nods to her show The Americans and the style of winter attire from Elizabeth’s homeland, which also happens to be back next month.

The rest of Russell’s outfit matches her casual cool vibe and I am very much feeling those boots. Walking in heels this high in the cold is something we have seen Russell do before, but it is probably a good thing that she had co-star and IRL boyfriend Matthew Rhys with her as this photo from the official Rag & Bone Instagram shows.

Coats, Cardigans, Boots and Knitwear from Sundance 2017

23 Jan

This time of year is great for someone who writes about red carpet fashion because a) there is so much and b) it is quite varied. There’s the glamour of award season, panel fashion at TCA and then there’s the Sundance Film Festival. TCA and Sundance are the closest to my personal style as many of the outfits worn are things I could see in my own closet; well I’d probably have a cheaper version.

Sundance also happens to take place in a location where it is cold and this also mirrors my current local as I’m pretty much head to toe in knits right now. It also feels very different to award season and at Sundance the clothes while most likely carefully chosen have a more carefree thrown together vibe and also consist of the most amazing coats. An instant win for me.

So here is the best of Sundance so far. Expect more later in the week.jessica-williams-and-noel-wellsAt the IMDb studio while promoting The Incredible Jessica James, TV Ate My Wardrobe faves Jessica Williams and Noël Wells give great boots, patterns and beanies. An early indication of what you can expect from this style post.

On Saturday as Women’s Marches were held in the U.S. and across the world Jessica Williams gave a powerful speech at Sundance telling the crowd “I grew up thinking that the civil rights movement already happened, that we already fought. But this election was a wakeup call … We have to fight, and we cannot slack.” aubrey-plazaNow for the long coats portion and outerwear is truly my clothing weakness.

Also this is an instant way to spruce up a pretty standard outfit as demonstrated by Aubrey Plaza at the Iris Goes West premiere.jenny-slateJenny Slate goes super classic at the Landline premiere with her outerwear choice, which thankfully distracts from denim fringe. carey-mulliganMuch to my delight Carey Mulligan is back with the very well received Mudbound. Here she is giving great coat, sweater and lipstick (also to my delight).rooney-maraRooney Mara’s nearly floor skimming olive green number has a bit of a military vibe and pairing it with an all-black look at the premiere of A Ghost Story works like a Rooney Mara charm. As does her slightly severe dark brows and lip color choice.cynthy-wuMy strong cape feelings are well documented on this site and the one I have in my own closet was bought after I broke my wrist and my cast covered arm wouldn’t fit in my winter coat sleeve. Best purchase. Cynthy Wu’s Chloé cape take on the Before I Fall red carpet is very cute and classic paired with a white sweater and black jeans.alison-brie-and-dave-francoAlison Brie’s sporting a fabulous shorter hair style at the IMDb studio while promoting The Little Hours and the dungarees/sweater is pretty much a staple go to casual look for me right now. And fiance Dave Franco wears a T-Rex sweater from the Coach collection I have been coveting for a long, long time. alison-brieAlso while promoting The Little Hours both Alison Brie and Kate Micucci deliver on my other favorite trend; sweaters with stripes. Micucci’s super colorful number is particularly delightful.emily-browningIt is not all coats, knits and boots and as Emily Browning shows at the Golden Exits premiere in a patterned dress which is an ideal day/night look.chloe-sevingyAlso at the same premiere is Chloë Sevigny in a print that wouldn’t look out of place in that one season (*sob*) of Good Girls Revolt paired with shoes that look like the ones I wore to high school in the mid ’90s. Also black tights forever.jon-hammHot dudes in chunky cardigans; the Jon Hamm edition.nick-offermanClosing with Nick Offerman in a knitted pink pussy hat. He wears it well.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

25 Nov

This has been a much quieter week on the style front than the last bumper “Out of the Box” and this makes sense as yesterday was Thanksgiving; if you were celebrating then I hope you had a fabulous one! Also, Happy Gilmore Girls Day! This is pretty much what I plan on doing today. In all things Gilmore and style here is my rundown of the best of the premiere red carpet and I also took a look at the fashion of the early ’00s through the 2016 lens.

On the menu this week we have very cute premiere dresses and a whole eclectic mix of events. Plus roundtable season is back! lizzy-caplanAt the London premiere of Allied, Lizzy Caplan wears an Elie Saab that is not only the ideal amount of sheer but also gives off great polka dot and red lipstick. Pretty much perfect.yara-shahidiYara Shahidi has become a bit of anOut of the Boxfixture and part of this is down to her versatile style; at the Marie Claire Young Women’s Honors she goes for fresh and funky in Tadashi Shoji giving off some fun floral vibes with a spirally twist.

 

Plus a bonus fantastic selfie from the night with a super sleek bobbed Gina Rodriguez.

jenny-slate-and-edgar-rThe first major awards nominations came out this week and the Independent Spirit Awards is always a favorite. They tend to skew different to all the other major awards on account of the whole indie aspect (of course there is overlap) and they always deliver on the red carpet style front. Jenny Slate and Edgar Ramirez were on hand to announce the nominations and are giving good presenter style; not too fancy, not too casual. Also bold pink shoes are always welcome.

For the full list of nominations (and pretty much a list of films I want to see) head here.ellen-and-obamaThis week President Obama presented 21 Americans with the Presidential Medal of Freedom; one of the recipients was Ellen DeGeneres and it is hard to watch this clip without getting chocked up and teary as both Ellen and Barack Obama did. And it really is “easy to forget now just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out on the most public of stages 20 years ago.”

This photo of the pair is a delight and Ellen as always is crushing the ladysuit game and gives such good pattern clashing.

 

Here is a full look at this fabulous burgundy plaid suit as Ellen waits to get in to the White House.

thrRoundtable season is here! And we all know how I feel about this (if you don’t then know I went full klaxon on Twitter when THR released who the group was). Amy Adams pretty much has a reserved seat at this table as this is now her fifth roundtable over the last seven years showing just how strong her presence is at every award season. I adore her so I am all good with this. Somehow she also gets the worst outfit. And in fun THR roundtable stats; three of these women (Adams, Bening and Portman) all featured on the inaugural cover back in 2010.

Taraji P. Henson gives great roundtable as last year’s TV drama actress discussion showed and as I mentioned last week I am very excited about Hidden Figures.

They’ve gone for the dark ensembles to give off the serious vibe, which is one of the go to THR roundtable editorial staples with Emma Stone and Naomie Harris taking best dressed and Annette Bening getting best lipstick. As with the TV roundtable series the movie ones will air on SundanceTV, but you can read the transcript and watch the videos at The Hollywood Reporter

Now I’m going to get back to Gilmore Girls and have a fantastic rest of your weekend!

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

13 Oct

As I have been away for a couple of weeks some of these Instagram highlights are from during that time period.

Now for some behind the scenes of how I choose which pictures I include; while I’m scrolling through I’ll screengrab the ones that catch my eye and because I wasn’t on the internet all that much while on honeymoon/during wedding prep this will be a lighter week, but a fun collection nonetheless featuring a lot of my favorite shows/people.

Next time everything will be back to regular transmission.

 

Our first proper night in New York was spent in the company of Gil and George (charmed, I’m sure) and as a huge fan of the “too much tuna” sketch on Kroll Show this stage production was everything I hoped it would be and more. Funny and so dark in places, that I was equal parts laughing and picking my jaw up off the floor.

From best of friends to tonight's Brd'way opening. We'll say it again, bozos: THIS IS NOT A PRAHNK. #OhHelloBroadway

A post shared by Gil and George (@ohhelloshow) on

 

This fun photo collage of the evolution of this sketch is also a delight.

Blowing the lid off: Finally, the proof that @tatianamaslany is in actual fact a clone.

There is still time for some 2016 Emmy coverage and this photo Tom Cullen posted of Tatiana Maslany links nicely into Orphan Black and my desire to get drinks and go dancing with them.

A post shared by Orphan Black (@orphanblacktv) on

 

Speaking of Orphan Black and they are back on set for the fifth and final season. Helena is coming to play and this always makes me very happy.

Also it just occurred to me that a lot of shows I hold close to my heart are getting the chance to wrap up on their own terms (see also The AmericansHalt and Catch Fire and The Leftovers). Sure, it is a bummer they will be over soon(ish), but also such a relief they will get a proper ending to their story.

Westeros 2015

A post shared by Carice van Houten (@leavecaricealone) on

 

Also on this list is Game of Thrones (although it was never in doubt that they would get to choose their end date unlike some of those shows listed above) and this is very fun flashback to 2015 from Carice van Houten.

 

Two more seasons of The Americans (*sob*) and day one of season five already has me excited for the skirt/boot combination Keri Russell is wearing (even in this is an out of focus shot).

 

To the woman who creates these Americans costumes surrounded by her work and this photo of costume designer Katie Irish is a stunner.

And to a show that is over, but not in our hearts or January Jones’ Insta and these costume shots from Janie Bryant are always a welcome sight.

Today @nbctimeless premiers & I am so grateful to have been a small part of awesome show!! My character was a total transformation into another time period, from sleeping in hair pins, to stylized makeup, some awesome pants called jampers and I loved every moment of it!! It's the best part about what I do, stepping outside myself and becoming someone who is a whole different individual. Bringing her back to life from 1937 allowed me to learn more about the journey of women in this world! My inspiration was Margaret Bourke-White who as a woman had a lot of "firsts" on her resume.. Like being the FIRST FEMALE photographer on staff at LIFE magazine and featured on the cover! Make sure to tune in tonight..: and thanks #timelessteam for letting me be a part of your world!! #lovemyjob #luckygirl

A post shared by Shantel VanSanten (@therealshantel) on

 

Now for a closer look at the hair, makeup and costuming Shantel VanSanten wore on the Timeless premiere – a show that is tremendous amounts of fun from both a story and costume perspective – and I love the detail in her description here. Also so much lipstick coveting.

 

Constance Zimmer shared a piece of fan art that celebrates the many characters she has played on TV and it is wonderful.

 

No hot sauce required.

As a Top 5 Americans disguise it feels right to finish this first “Behind the Insta-Scenes” post after being away with this joyous moment. Abbi and Ilana, I’m sure would agree.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

So many sequins and bold color on Out of the Box this week with looks from the BET Awards, movie premieres and other red carpet shindigs bringing all the summer dress delights. Yara ShahidiYara Shahidi super fun and super colorful Tracy Reese dress for the 2016 BET Awards is playing into two of my great loves; stripes and sparkles. The teenage Black-ish star has picked out a look that is both age appropriate and stands out. Gold vintage Tommy Hilfiger stacked heels are the perfect shoe as they shimmer without clashing. For more on Shahidi’s getting ready process head to Teen Vogue.Andra DayMore bold sequins at the BET Awards with singer Andra Day delivering on vintage looking glam and this entire ensemble is stunning right down to purple Moschino pumps. Aubrey Plaza miniA Prada sequin mini for Aubrey Plaza and this is ultimate Megan Draper has just hit California attire. So I am of course so here for it.Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake BellI would like to see a live action movie with Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper and Lake Bell and not just The Secret Life of Pets, which is what they are promoting here. Dress pretty for all three ladies and this was also the occasion where Jenny Slate made things red carpet official with Chris Evans.Lauren AmbroseGlorious green caftan at the ready for Lauren Ambrose at the Amazon pilots event. I like this super boho look a lot more than the Interestings pilot (I loved the book, but think the show misses a lot of what made this group charming). I really like Ambrose and have high hopes that if it does go to series they will fix these issues.Cush JumboAt the Tarzan premiere Cush Jumbo is also doing the casual glam thing in Michael Kors and this really makes me want to grab a cocktail with her.

Exhibit 1. The You’re the Worst set looks like a very happy place.

This is a good scene. #ytwfxx

Exhibit 2. Also welcome Samira Wiley to You’re the Worst and this is very good casting news. Sunglasses and denim heaven.

 

Ruling TV Instagram this week is the Orange is the New Black cast including behind the scenes shots that couldn’t be shared during shooting (because spoilers) and a variety of public appearances.

Candid moments. #timestalk @oitnb 🍊

Danielle Brooks bows out of this talk early (after taking this great picture of Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon) and she has the best reason; she has to go to her other job performing on Broadway in The Color Purple.

Getting ready for dis! #orangewillsetyoufree #pride #nycpride #pride2016🌈

The OITNB cast also took part in New York City’s Pride parade on Sunday and are giving off so many great outfit vibes.

Rivaling the OITNB for most prolific cast on Instagram is UnREAL and thankfully everyone looks far happier here than they do behind the scenes on Everlasting.

Losing my mind from lack of sleep but thanks to @tinaturnbowmup @meganlanoux & @vanessaliannejewelry you can barely tell…

A fantastic look from Busy Philipps and this patterned Gucci frock is also getting added to the coveting hard list.

Not entirely sure what is going on here but it is equal parts terrifying and amazing. Super cute casual outfit too.
