Out of the Box: Look of the Week

22 Jul

Comic-Con is here! As I’m writing this there are still many panels to go and this is the tip of the Comic-Con style iceberg, which is a whole lot like PaleyFest and TCA in that it varies from super casual cool to the dressier end of the scale.

Today we have both in the menswear department from the open air IMAX world premiere of Star Trek Beyond kicking things off in San Diego this week. There is also a dash of politics and more movie screenings.John ChoI really miss Selfie and reading Jon Cho’s comments in this amazing and insightful interview with Vulture about this show only adds to this sense of sadness about its early cancellation:

Selfie was a chance for me to be centered, confident. There was some kind of stillness to the character that I felt was much more me than any other person I played.”

Henry was also a suits kinda guy and Cho looks great at the Star Trek Beyond premiere in this blue number.Idris ElbaNormally I might shake my head at how casual this look is for a premiere of a movie that someone is in, but Idris Elba has the best reason for shorts and sneakers as his suit was lost at the airport. Plus he still manages to crush it and look cool as fuck despite this wardrobe mishap.Christian SlaterThis week I cleaned out my closet and it was no surprise that stripes were the dominant staple; at the Star Trek Beyond premiere Christian Slater shows that dudes can do this style just as well and my only slight negative note is going sockless with loafers.  Rose McIverThe iZombie cast are taking a quick break from starting shooting season 3 and have headed to San Diego for Comic-Con and they presented at the MTV Fandom Awards last night (July 21). The split up the front of the dress is having a big revival this year and while I’m still not completely sold on this trend, I do really like the color, texture and floral print of Rose McIver’s frock and it is ideal for this event.

Looking forward to seeing more from the iZombie cast in San Diego and check back for more Comic-Con style coverage over the next few days.Danielle Brooks and Uzo AdubaCo-stars supporting co-stars in other projects is my fave and Danielle Brooks is on hand at the screening of Uzo Aduba’s new movie Tallulah (which played at Sundance and I am looking forward to seeing). Brooks looks fabulous in another floral dream this week; wearing a Fuzzi frock and ASOS silver pumps and Aduba goes classic in a black dress and strappy shoes. Stephen and JonA slightly different spin on the co-stars supporting each other format and Jon Stewart made a much welcome and needed return to late night with a couple of appearances this week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stephen Colbert shared this photo from last night’s show on his Twitter and this brings me so much joy in this bonkers political week/month/year.

Jon’s still working his fantastic post Daily Show beard and clip on ties are dangerous to chest hair and not a great sartorial choice, but everything about the above shot is wonderful. Plus Stephen scrubs up well even when he is poking out the side of his desk.

To watch Jon Stewart’s segment click on the video below and bask in his anger and blanked out swears.

Miss you, Jon.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

5 Aug

If there was a “Behind the Insta-Scenes” theme this week it would probably be #SquadGoals. A lot of shows are now back to work and getting their promo on as fall season looms, but there are also plenty of vacation shots occurring.

 

Brie Larson joined Instagram last week and this human pyramid of lady greatness is one of her first photo offerings. The only time I’ve been involved in one of these was at Reading Festival about 10 years ago and surprisingly no one was hurt (I am ultimate clumsy). I did see a far messier one at the wedding I attended this weekend, which is what happens at 1 am. Larson also shared this excellent shot from the Jenny Lewis “One of the Guys” video.

With JoGo on #TheMindyProject only on @hulu

A post shared by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is guest starring on the forthcoming season premiere of The Mindy Project as (spoiler alert) Mindy’s husband. Say what?! Well, Mindy is very not pregnant in this party shot (super hot dress BTW) and Sliding Doors is the inspiration for this alt-reality setting. If you read our Felicity discussion posts you will know I love a ‘road not traveled’ exploration. Although interestingly enough I have never seen Sliding Doors the whole way through.

 

Because Mindy Lahiri is most definitely pregnant and wearing a very fetching Salvador Perez orange ensemble while shooting a subway scene. This is only adding to my current craving for orange clothes. Kaling is really great at showing sneak peeks of the amazing costuming and hopefully the premiere date will be announced soon.

 

This image of Taraji P. Henson is everything and needs to be printed on t-shirts/mugs/fridge magnets.

 

Double Cookie for your pleasure this week and Empire is another highly anticipated returning show.

 

Alan Cumming is back in full Eli Gold garb and hopefully this caption means big things will be happening for this character in season 7.

 

The first full length You’re the Worst promo was released this week just as shooting the second season comes to a close. I heart this cast so hard.

 

Break out the dance party as Playing House is back. Here is a stunning photo of Lennon Parham laughing it up backstage at Late Night with Seth Meyers.

 

It is Jon Stewart’s last week on The Daily Show and I’m feeling pretty emotional about it to be honest. Going to watch it being filmed back in 2010 was an experience I never imagined I would have and it was even more wonderful than expected. Here is the always incredible Jessica Williams with her boss in the background. Enjoy this truly excellent segment from last night’s episode.

 

There are going to be plenty of these kinds of shots this week (I expect Instagram to be awash with Daily Show photos tomorrow) and Amy Schumer is doing the waiting in the wings thing before she goes on. Schumer also explained just how the JLaw boat hangout went down.

 

Selfie love from the Orange is the New Black ladies all in costume.

 

And another OITNB delight to round off this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.”

Welcome to another midweek edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes with a Gossip Girl reunion, snowy weather, guest stars and a lot of very funny people.

 

Beyoncé tickets are her birthright and Gina’s flawless style is giving me denim jacket and striped skirt ideas.

So much love ❤️ @mslagerfelt @matthew_settle

A post shared by Kelly Rutherford (@kellyrutherford) on

 

Rumor has it that Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle have done what Rufus and Lily could not; I am a sucker for cast members being romantically entwined or besties after a show is dunzo. Here they are joined Caroline Lagerfelt who played Rutherford’s on screen mother and CeCe was not one of Rufus’ biggest fans. It looks a lot cozier IRL.

 

After appearing at the Night of Too Many Stars live telethon Abbi and Ilana are hanging out with Jon Stewart again – this time at The Daily Show.

 

Jane the Virgin returned this week with yet another fabulous fantasy infused setup.

 

The final season of Kroll Show continues to draw all the names in comedy and some super slicked back hair from Aziz.

 

Adam Pally is a very good gift giver. Their coat and scarf game is also v. strong.

Spring is upon us but not before the snow has one last final hurrah. Here is the very pretty and albeit very cold looking trailer area on Elementary.

 

DVD sets that don’t come with any episode commentaries don’t quite fulfill their boxset potential; this is not the case with Looking as Frankie J. Alvarez captures one session in action.

 

And here is Daniel Franzese post recording session and a very busy day. Franzese is killing it as Eddie on Looking this season and here is the excellent Buzzfeed article he mentions in the caption.

 

Taking the crown for guest star related joy from The Mindy Project is The Good Wife with Lawrence Gilliard Jr. and Arvin Sloane (Ron Rifkin).

 

The Night of Too Many Stars – Broad City, OITNB and Jessica Williams Take Your Calls

9 Mar

Oh hey it is Monday and here is a bunch of delightful photos from the Night of Too Many Stars including Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Jessica Williams and some of the Orange is the New Black ladies to kick things off.

Abbi and IlanaJon Stewart hosted the fifth Night of Too Many stars airing on Comedy Central last night with a live telethon. The event raises money for autism programs, schools and services; since its inception in 2006 the biannual show has raised over $18 million. Ilana and Abbi were just two of the many comedy stars on hand to take your call and here they are with Stewart. Perhaps they are showing him some Kirk Steele.

Abbi, Ilana and Jon StewartJohn Oliver returns to his old stomping ground.

And Aidy Bryant and Ilana Glazer are the most adorable. My love for Aidy’s outfit/lipstick color is strong.
