Out of the Box: Look of the Week

20 Apr

After last week’s pink suit extravaganza, Look of the Week and spring fashion is a bit more eclectic. Lots of bold patterns, some fabulous ladysuits and sequin delights. Behold! Regular (or even not so regular) readers will not be surprised to see me kick off this week with Busy and Michelle. At the I Feel Pretty premiere, Busy looks incredible in sparkly Christian Siriano. Siriano, as Busy shared on her Stories also provided the dress for her sister.

Meanwhile, I wish Michelle’s Louis Vuitton was a jumpsuit rather than a witchy dress. The collar is reminiscent of this LV dress she wore at the SAG awards last year, but I like this detail more on this occasion even if the sequin SAG frock is better.

Also while I’m on the subject of I Feel Pretty, this by Alison Herman is an interesting look at Amy Schumer’s career trajectory.
I am never not going to love a sequin mini dress, especially when Natalie Morales is the one in it. I just finished season two of Santa Clarita Diet, this show and Morales are so much fun. I liked season one, but it has really found its weirdo voice. I hope there is more to come.Evan Rachel Wood is Queen of the Ladysuits; she does not disappoint in this very beige, very ’70s looking Altuzzara ensemble. Also opting for a vibe from my fave style decade is Thandie Newton in patterned and peplum Osman.

Really looking forward to see these ladies tear show shit up on season two of Westworld.Hello, handsome. James Marsden is coordinating with the carpet and showing how to pattern clash in style.Carrying on the crush theme with Jimmi Simspon; I adore him and those clear frames. This is also a fun and different suit choice for spring.I finally saw A Quiet Place and I am thankful for Krasinski’s beard/knitwear in this movie, as it gave me something to focus on instead of the intense dread levels. What a movie. Emily Blunt delivered reactions to destroy me on every level and it is nice seeing them having a lovely time on the red carpet.

This is at Variety’s Power of Women‘ event, where Blunt was being honored. Blunt wears floral Prada, which has a surprising touch of sequins on the shoulders. Also getting honored was Viola Davis, wearing her fave shade of pink (it looks great on her) in Pamella Roland; more peplum and it would appear that 2012 is making a comeback. I’m not sure how I feel like this on the whole, but Davis looks fabulous. Sandra Oh gives great casual outfit heading into Jimmy Kimmel Live! I am a little obsessed with sweats like this at the moment. In fact I would wear this entire outfit.And now for what Sandra Oh wore on the show. This is a great jumpsuit; Oh looks chic as hell (sorry, Reynolds Woodcock). This also reminds me that I still need to watch Killing Eve.

Get yourself someone who can do both casual and fancy. It was the Scandal series finale last night (things were handled, great clothes were worn), but earlier this week Kerry Washington attended Eva Longoria’s Star ceremony in a killer outfit.

Houndstooth appeared from time to time in Olivia Pope’s wardrobe, but she would not have worn something as colorful as this Oscar de la Renta frock. Sunglasses give it a daytime glam feel and I am head over heels for this look.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 Apr

How is it April already? A question I gave been asking since Sunday. However, it is finally light jacket temperature and I am thrilled. My winter coats have served me well, but I am ready to wear something else.

On the red carpet and at events this week there is an injection of color with a dash of classic black frocks thrown into the mix (it still isn’t that warm tbh).

Confession – I struggled with the first few episodes of Legion and fell off after episode three. I think it looks incredible and the performances are great, I just felt very disconnected with it all. Maybe I will try again, but TV watching time is already very busy.

At the premiere TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Aubrey Plaza gives great red lip and velvet Vince Camuto. A striking and classic look. Meanwhile, Dan Stevens goes bold in both his suit and footwear choice. Reader, I am enjoying this. Now this is spring florals; Katie Aselton is a pattern clashing delight in Preen with a Clare Vivier bag, which I have fallen in love with. The eye detail is creepy AND charming.

There is a lot to love about Atlanta, but the episodes which have been the highlight for me in both season one and two are Van-centric. Zazie Beetz is incredible and I cannot wait to see her in Deadpool 2. This stripe/zig-zag dress combo is also fantastic.

And here she is on Late Night with Seth Meyers in that fabulous dress talking about her German upbringing (including some things that influenced a recent Atlanta episode).I am also very much looking forward to having the living crap scared out of me when I go to see The Quiet Place. This has been a fun press tour with IRL couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

At the London premiere, Blunt goes super spring in floral tiered Elie Saab and while Krasinski could have maybe been a little less casual, I am a sucker for this look on a dude (especially one with a beard this good).

This is also a very strong look.Leighton Meester has turned an icy shade of blonde and to my great surprise, I am very much here for it. Less surprising is how much I am coveting her airport ensemble.Book-ending this week with black dresses, but adding some spring fever with the floral backdrop at the New York screening of Howard’s End. The costumes in this show are fantastic—so much gingham—and it is always a pleasure to have Hayley Atwell on TV (I miss you, Agent Carter). Atwell is joined by on screen sister Philippa Coulthard and there is definite coordination here; Atwell gets my dress vote, Coulthard wins the shoes.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

19 Oct

Jane the Virgin returned this week much to my teary eyed joy and this cast continues to deliver on the social media behind the scenes front. Plus we have a week of super stylish moments including Insta postcards from Cannes, costume secrets and more.

 

Kicking off again with Gil and George because I really want to see Oh, Hello again and because the guest stars keep on coming. Care Delevingne (just know I’m doing the Reese voice) is essentially wearing lounge wear including boob slippers, which actually feels entirely appropriate for this show.

Family. #janethevirgin #season3

The cast that watches their season premiere together, stays together.

 

From the Jane the Virgin season 3 premiere and what the cast looks like all aged up. Just let it be known that this was the part of the episode where I went from welling up, to single tear and quickly followed by double eye sobbing. This show.

 

While I am strongly Team Michael this is very flame emoji and I cannot wait for whatever fantasy sequence will deliver this costuming delight.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!!! So proud of her!!! #SNL

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

14 Oct

This is the last part of the regular column catch up train (see also “Behind the Insta-Scenes“) and so this is a sort of “Look of the Last Three Weeks.”

In this post-Emmys time – I have been writing about Emmys fashion for so long it feels odd now we’re past it – there are still plenty of fancy pants events, premieres, film festivals and magazine covers.
matthew-rhys-and-keri-russell-operaKeri Russell and Matthew Rhys attended the Met Opera in style a couple of weeks ago with Russell opting for Stephane Rolland for the third time in recent months (see also the Emmys and the White House state dinner).

This caped jumpsuit might be my favorite of the three and it brings all the elegant drama. It is also fun watching the reduction of Matthew Rhys’ hiatus beard from the White House through to the Emmys and then this. After all they have started shooting season 5 now.

It was a tossup between this appearance and the fantastic lady suit/pussy bow blouse combination Keri Russell wore to another recent event, but the cape won out this time.emily-blunt-and-john-krasinskiKeeping with the couple faves and a lipstick/dress color delight from Emily Blunt in Prada at the New York premiere for The Girl on the Train last week. Also this live reading of Good Will Hunting pretty much sounds like the best thing ever.sjp-and-cynthia-nixonAs regular readers will know, I am a big fan of former co-stars who come out to support each other with their new projects so Cynthia Nixon at the Divorce premiere is a big tick in this box. Plus the Miranda/Carrie friendship always hit me in the feelings department (“My Motherboard, My Self” is my favorite SATC episode) so this appearance gets a double tick. There is so much joy in this photo and I also think they both look great.

Oh and one episode into Divorce (which I really liked) and I am already obsessed with SJP’s coat collection – so thankful this show is set during winter – and her bedspread.yara-shahidi-and-michelle-obamaThis week has been a shitty one politically, but I am so thankful for Michelle Obama for this speech and for taking part in events like Glamour’s “A Brighter Future: A Global Conversation on Girls’ Education.” Here she is with Black-ish star Yara Shahidi and both are crushing it on the pattern front. High fives for all.naomie-harrisNow for the London Film Festival and at the Moonlight premiere Naomie Harris wears a beautiful Valentino in the rare category of “sheer that I like.” Pairing it with a colorful pair of pumps really sets the look off. lupita-nyongo-elleElle’s annual “Women in Hollywood” issue is here and Lupita Nyong’o scores another fantastic cover shot while also discussing the importance of seeing people who look like you on screen and in magazines:

“I grew up with a very limited mirror of myself. I watched a lot of TV, but the people on it were always light skinned. And now I have a platform that takes me into people’s houses and onto the pages of their magazines.”variety-laverne-cox“Power of Women” is Variety’s annual celebration of women in Hollywood who are making a difference with their philanthropic work. One of those women is Laverne Cox and she is being honored for “changing the narrative around LGBTQ communities.”

Cox has been on many magazine covers (this is her second for Variety) with visibility being an important factor and Cox explains that “So many people have been inspired to live their truth as trans people, and so many people have begun to think differently about who transgender people are.”

This is another stunning image and the color of the dress and the way this shot is lit gives off a feeling of hope.jon-hammWinter is coming and that means all the knitwear and coat editorials; Mr Porter scores an early win with Jon Hamm serving up so much charisma in this week’s profile and accompanying photoshoot. The whole piece is good, but this passage/description of Hamm really stood out to me:

“Even in his baseball cap, at 45, Mr Hamm is as comely as you’d expect from a man whose first credit was “Gorgeous Guy at Bar” in an episode of Ally McBeal. One women’s magazine described him as “astronaut handsome”, not that astronauts are selected on looks, duh, but it does capture his capable, reassuring, 1950s air and captain-like quality. His voice really does insinuate that everything’s going to be OK, but there’s something soulful about him, something indefinable that makes you hope he’s going to be OK, too.”

It is part of the reason why a Don Draper pitch worked so well; the voice and face combined. Also there are photos of him hiding in the sweaters if you really need another reason to click.

4 May

Continuing on from yesterday’s Met Gala highlights we’ve got some getting ready and Gala hangout offerings. Plus more from the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and the Girls ladies get back to work for their final season.

 

Still the dress moment of the evening and it is worth seeing Claire Danes in all her glowing glory once again.

 

And here it is in the early stages.

 

I have so many questions about the bathroom situation considering the size/constricted nature of some of the gowns (going short seems like a wise choice) and as somehow who has talked about how much they love the use of bathrooms particularly in teen shows, I am so here for this.

As with this Lady Gaga in the background facial expression I am also obsessed with what Jemima Kirke is thinking in this moment.

On the way to my first #MetGala. Here I go! @giambattistapr

A post shared by Danai Gurira (@danaigurira) on

 

This was another favorite look of the night and Danai Gurira is a spectacular force on the red carpet, as Michonne on The Walking Dead and as a writer. There is another reason for Gurira to celebrate this week as her play Eclipsed received six Tony nominations including writing and for best play.

 

One thing I love about Instagram and fashion posts is the detail you get to appreciate that wouldn’t normally come across in red carpet shots. Case in point the parts of SJP’s Hamilton inspired look.

If you only follow one stylist on Instagram make it Ilaria Urbinati for lots of dudes in suits treats such as this Scott Speedman delight and plenty of ladies looking amazing (including Krysten Ritter from the event in the previous photo).

 

This is wonderful and bizarre. Thank you, Jessica Chastain.

 

A very special visit from the woman who inspired Olivia Pope.

 

While I’m on the subject of very special visitors; the cast of The Crucible were graced with the presence of the one and only Stevie Nicks.

Sooooo….This rabid theater fan came to #DryPowder last night.

Other significant post-play important hangouts of the week and now I have all the feelings.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

25 Mar

Yes award season is over and yet there is another award show, but we don’t mind because this is a fun one and award season fatigue is easily replaced with sartorial joy. There are more fabulous outfits on display at premieres, play openings, editorials and magazine covers.Maisie WilliamsAt the Empire Awards Maisie Williams continues her run of fun red carpet choices in this sequin Sadie Williams top and mini-skirt and I love everything about this. Including the fact that she did her own her and make-up and to quote Williams on this matter “cos why the fuck not.” Roll on the Game of Thrones season 6 press tour and we’ve got more Maisie Williams below.Daisy Ridley and John BoyegaJohn Boyega and Daisy Ridley continue to charm and delight with their enormous smiles and star presence. As with Maisie Williams both Boyega and Ridley don’t shy away from bold choices on the red carpet and they’re having a good time with these events and what they wear.

The floral element is a nice touch on Boyega’s suit and Daisy Ridley’s Hugo Boss dress is interesting and uses sheer panels in a way that doesn’t make me want to cover my eyes. Incredible sparkly shoes to top things off. Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth OlsonRecently there has been a lot of Tom Hiddleston wearing appropriately snug suits in my life (see The Night Manager and High-Rise for more) and at the I Saw the Light premiere he has opted for a fabulous blue number. Elizabeth Olsen complements his blue in a red Emilio Pucci feather embroidered frock which looks every level of fancy comfy; an ideal combo. Also I seem to recall dating rumors about these two and yep I am here for that.Claire DanesMoving on to a couple who I definitely know are together and Hugh Dancy was there to support wife Claire Danes at the opening night of her new play Dry Powder. While there is nothing super groundbreaking about either outfit – the subtle check on Dancy’s suit is a nice touch – both look great and it has been a while since they graced these pages.Emily Blunt and John KrasinskiMore couple treats as John Krasinski is also in Dry Powder and wife Emily Blunt joined him on the red carpet. All the cape and knit dress points for the pregnant Blunt.

Keri RussellSpeaking of maternity style – Keri Russell appeared in The New York Times crushing it in this casual cool mix of jeans, white blouse and sleeveless coat. And heels (while not as crazy as the Gucci platforms I am still in awe).

In the interview Russell discussed her feelings about Elizabeth referring to her as “my fantasy person” and “Honestly, I relish the kind of mother she is — especially these days when we’re all supposed to be craft-making, cookie-making, have a career, be sexy, have a great body, go to Pilates. She’s not at home making Halloween costumes or inviting her kids’ friends over for cupcakes. It’s totally refreshing.” Holly Taylor InterviewPaige might be causing a whole lot of headaches for her parents on The Americans this week and Holly Taylor is hitting all those devastating emotional beats not letting her mother get away with blaming her for the mess they are in. The styling of Holly Taylor’s Interview editorial is giving me so many Keri Russell vibes thanks to the black jumpsuit styling which her onscreen mother has a penchant for. Also all that amazing hair.

Taylor talks about her Americans audition, college plans, the background in dance that she shares with Russell and how draining it was to film the big reveal scene last season.

Maisie Williams EWThe new double issue of Entertainment Weekly is a Game of Thrones special focusing on the women – A+ pun work there – and the six covers showcase these characters in ways which seem true to who they are and as a bonus they don’t make me cringe. This one of Maisie Williams as Arya Stark shows her looking defiant rather than blinded as we last saw her and hopefully this means she will be reunited with Needle soon.Sophie turnerAll six covers are fabulous and for once I am glad to be a digital subscriber over the print edition as I won’t have to choose which one I get. The thing that makes me happiest about this Sophie Turner cover is she is wearing the badass Sansa costume which we first saw at the end of season 4; is this a sign that Sansa will get her revenge and some power this year?

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

16 Jan

It has been a red carpet heavy week (Golden Globes and Elle’s Women in Television) and we’ve got more fancy frocks on display at the Golden Globes after parties and the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Plus the TCA winter press tour continues and we’ve got some fun shots featuring the casts of Mad Men and Community.

Diane KrugerDiane Kruger switched out of her silver slinky gown at the InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes post-party; the shorter floral Giamba black and white dress is all the better to dance in. Joshua Jackson still looks just as handsome in the same tux he was wearing at the awards show.

Judith LightJudith Light! Also at the same post Globes party and fabulous as ever in a color that joins the ranks of the many stunning bold hues on display that night.

Mad Men TCAMoving onto the TCA press tour as the Mad Men cast talk about the final half of the final season (*sob*) and this photo of Elisabeth Moss and Vincent Kartheiser has me shipping Pete and Peggy. That should not be a thing. Kartheiser’s beard is looking mighty fine as are Moss’ red pumps.

January Jones TCAMore from the Mad Men panel and because a super smiley Betty Draper is a rarity here is a delightful shot of January Jones. She also happens to be adding to my current leather jacket obsessionMad Men returns for the last time on April 5 with the appropriately titled “The End of an Era.”

Gillian Jacobs TCAMore TCA and Gillian Jacobs in a patterned Tanya Taylor delight from the SS15 collection. I would also not say no to Joel McHale’s super cute dragon sweatshirt.

Emily BluntRed dresses have dominated the awards circuit this week and Emily Blunt’s scarlet Pucci frock is a beautiful addition to the trend. At the Critic’s Choice awards Blunt won for Edge of Tomorrow which was my favorite big blockbuster of 2014 and her speech – at the bottom of the page – with bonus John Krasinski cameo encapsulates why.

Jenny SlateAnother lady and performance I am in awe of is Jenny Slate in Obvious Child so I am so happy to see her get recognized for this role while looking fantastic in Miu Miu. Slate gives an empowering speech to watch and feel good about.

 

Elephant Man Broadway Opening Night Arrivals: Couples and Coats

8 Dec

Starting the week off with a coat heavy post because it is cold and I need some outerwear pretty for this brr Monday morning. I would normally save these looks for “Out of the Box” but there is too much couple cuteness to wait until Friday. Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson are starring in the Broadway production of The Elephant Man at the Booth Theater and here are some of the stylish folks who attended the opening night show on Sunday.

Emily Blunt and John KransinskiEmily Blunt’s Dolce & Gabbana coat is a beauty as is her Marios Schwab frock and husband John Krasinski is doing the whole coat/knitwear/shirt combo I adore so much.

Jon HammOpting for a slightly smarter suit/coat pairing is John Hamm with Jennifer Westfeldt continuing the coat/tights trend. The brief color injection thanks to the slight flash of yellow on Westfeldt’s heels and it is what this all black ensemble needs.

Bobby Cannavale and Rose ByrneAnother couple, another good collection of outerwear and while Rose Byrne could be wearing the brightest frock underneath her coat from here she is also sticking to a dark attire look. Yes this is very much tights season. Bobby Cannavale’s not gone full suit with tie and I can’t help but feel he could do with a scarf or something.

Ruth Wilson Elephant ManBlazer and pants for The Affair’s Ruth Wilson – she is also about to star on Broadway with Jake Gyllenhaal in Constellations – breaking the lady trend of the evening and I love this relaxed yet super stylish approach. Plus those two-tone purple and pink heels are crying out my name; coveting hard even if shoes like this destroy my feet.

John Krasinski vs. Jimmy Fallon: A Battle of Lip Syncing

8 May

There are just two episodes of The Office left which means that the cast are doing the late-night talk show rounds to promote the show. Last night John Krasinski (sporting a lovely post-Office beard) stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Krasinski introduced the world to lip sync battle; a game that gave both John Krasinski and Jimmy Fallon a chance to show off their best lip sync skills. A range of songs were performed from several genres giving both men the opportunity to try and out emote the other. As with most of the games on Late Night this segment is a lot of fun, especially when you get to the Boyz II Men big finish (involving some clothing removal). There will be swooning.
