Out of the Box: Look of the Week

10 Nov

The trickle of film celebrations has turned into a stream and this is a bumper Look of the Week. Fabulous frocks, ladysuits and stunning December issues celebrating the good things about this year. Yes, there are some good things among the garbage.  At the 21st annual Hollywood Awards, Zoe Kazan’s Gucci botanical frock is a delight. I can see Kazan in a lot of the new Gucci pieces and this is right in my style wheelhouse. Also to file under outfits that I adore; the ladysuit! Noomi Rapace mixes a lace cami with menswear inspiration and not only picks a great color suit, but doubles down with her pumps.And for an entirely different take on the ladysuit. Kate Mara’s metallic Burberry number is giving futuristic retro vibes.I can’t see a slip dress and not think about the ’90s. Throw a white baby doll tee under it/cardigan over it with Cons for that season 1 Felicity vibe and then heat things up without one a la Felicity in the season 2 premiere.

Tatiana Maslany has opted for the latter at the Hollywood Film Awards in Diane von Furstenberg. Throwing all the flame emojis in Viola Davis’ direction because this iridescent Alberta Ferretti gown is smoking hot.Emily V. Gordon continues to impress with her range of floral frocks and this Saloni London number is another hit. As are her shoes. And as a fan of a suit outside of the usual black/grey/brown/navy spectrum, I am very much here for Kumail Nanjiani’s choice here.

Hopefully we will continue to see the Big Sick team getting fêted and it is one of my favorite films of 2017. Wearing vintage Balmain to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards is Tracee Ellis Ross and once again her love of fashion goes deep and far back. Love the pop of red on her bag and pumps.
The LACMA Art + Film Gala was presented by Gucci so it is ruffles and lace for Kerry Washington, in a distinctive look. I continue to be enamored with everything Gucci is doing right now.

Also a good time to mention that I spoke to Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo last week and you can read that here.

Love ya NY NY 🌈 rg @weallwantsomeone #yeahyeahyeahs

A post shared by Karen O (@ko) on

Karen O spits rainbows and this Yeah Yeah Yeahs reunion is giving me all those undergraduate feelings. *digs out “Pin” poster*Drawing hearts around this photo of Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan at a screening of Lady Bird and Ronan is driving my desire to get some velvet pants.

I mentioned on Twitter that when I saw this photo of Allison Janney, my jaw hit the floor. Two days later and it is still having the same effect. Everything I love about a women in a tuxedo is on display here. The Cut continues their run of excellent profiles of women I find very interesting and this Aidy Bryant one is now different. The shoot itself is also fabulous and just because Bryant is not a sample size; it doesn’t mean she shouldn’t look as high fashion as anyone else who appears in these editorials. Something she discusses in the interview and she recalls having to wear her own clothes when she did a shoot with her SNL co-stars:

“It was just humiliating. The other girls had racks of clothes to choose from and were wearing these thousand-dollar dresses, and I had two sacks or like one matronly mother-of-the-bride dress. Those were the first times where I was like, Something is different here and this isn’t fair. This is a fucked-up situation, and it’s purely because of my body. Not because I’m less funny — it’s my body. It’s the only reason that I’m treated differently right now. And it lit a fucking fire in me.”

The original reason behind starting this blog was to discuss costume influence on my own style and Bryant’s costuming in The Big Sick ticks all those boxes. Fuck having to compromise on what you wear just because you’re not a size 6. Teen Vogue will cease to have a print copy next year and while it is the digital platform that has made this magazine one to watch for, I am still sad to see this one depart the print landscape. Over the years there have been some stunning covers (this Amandla Stenberg made a huge impact on me) and this Hillary Clinton cover (HRC is also the guest-editor of this issue) is pure art.
Another case of my jaw hitting the floor this week and Edward Enniful’s first edition of UK Vogue as the new editor-in-chief, is making a huge impression with this stunning shot of Adwoa Aboah. I can’t stop staring and I cannot wait until I get my hands on a copy.

There is a scene in Call My By Your Name that takes place in front of a bunch of magazines and I ended up in a Google image hole of Vogue Italia covers from 1983 and it reminds me of that period. The Samira Wiley Out 100 cover from three years ago is still one I think about. Such a stunning image and again this annual issue delivers. Jonathan Groff has had another really strong year and he gives great casual sweater pose.Also having an incredible year is Emmy award winning Lena Waithe. This cover is fabulous and I love how confident her gaze is here.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 Jan

We’ve got New Year’s celebrations covered, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunions galore, costume sneak peeks and a snowy day at work as the weather finally turns cold in this week’s collection from Instagram.

#tbt to right now. Love you sister. Happy new year.

A post shared by Amber Tamblyn (@amberrosetamblyn) on

 

You might already know my feelings about IRL friendships which have developed from pretend ones on screen, but if you don’t then just know that I am so here for all of this. The cast of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are still super tight including New Year’s Eve hangout tight.

WHERE are my hands?!? #SisterWivesOfTheTravelingPants

A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

 

Blake Lively is also getting in on the Amber Tamblyn action and this implies that maybe there’s some husband sharing occurring somewhere. Maybe this is a sequel in the works. Lively also gave a shout out to America Ferrera’s new show Superstore and there’s more between these ladies than just the perfect jeans.

#tbt Alexis and Ralph. Love you my sister. Happy new year.

A post shared by Amber Tamblyn (@amberrosetamblyn) on

 

The quality of this shot isn’t great, but I didn’t want to leave Alexis Bledel out of the mix, especially as I just jumped (albeit very late) on board the Gilmore Girls train. Plus I think I might need to give Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants a rewatch.

🎉 Hey, 2016, you have nice eyes.

A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

 

More IRL friendships and New Year’s party shenanigans featuring a good level of outfit sparkles, but in this case the real life relationship came before the fictional one (and looks a whole lot happier than the one we see on our screens). Lena Dunham just announced that Girls will end in 2017 after season 6 and I agree that by then it will be time to call it quits. Season 5 returns next month.

 

This lovely rendition from Charlie Day and Mark Duplass just made me realize that we didn’t even try and attempt to sing Auld Lang Syne this year with the obligatory only knowing a tiny portion of the lyrics and mumble singing the rest.

Looking ahead. Hope 2016 treats you well!

Happy New Year indeed! This kind of denim jacket is my favorite kind (and not just because I have one).

#RelationshipGoals ❤

 

This was a fun end of year Instagram thing where you can find out your nine most liked photos from 2015 and post them to your feed. Raul Castillo noticed a repeating theme in his selection (my theme was selfies, food and puppies).

 

For Krysten Ritter there is a whole lot of Jessica Jones, David Tenant and her dog Mikey.

 

An outtake from The Leftovers season 2 promo shoot and one which looks far more serene than Kevin’s desperate drowning reach toward Nora.

 

Curlers and snow for the Legends of Tomorrow cast with it looking full on brr cold.

 

I do love a floor plan.

Pumps for Ms. Pope! #Scandal #CDGTakeover by @lynelizabethdesigns

A post shared by Costume Designers Guild (@cdglocal892) on

 

Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo took over the Costume Designers Guild Instagram yesterday showing off all kinds of behind the scenes stuff including plenty of Prada bags, THE white hat and this selection of Olivia Pope pumps.

 

Keeping on theme and a very different array of footwear over at The Mindy Project. 

 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was back last night much to our delight. Good spy like photo taking skills from Stephanie Beatriz with an unsuspecting Andre Braugher in the background.

 

Expect to see way more Brie Larson (and Jacob Tremblay because this kid can rock a tux) around these parts as award season kicks into full gear. Here are Larson and Tremblay with their NBR awards and I am very much looking forward to sobbing through at least half of Room.

Best of TV Costuming 2015: Best of the Rest Part 2

28 Dec

Welcome to TV Ate My Wardrobe’s “Best of 2015” costuming series and rather than doing a straightforward countdown we’re going to do a variety of posts that look at which costumes and shows have made a huge impact this year. From items we want in our own wardrobe to pieces that got everyone talking; we want to celebrate the work of television’s best costume designers.

So far the Best of 2015 series has focused on in-depth costuming achievements from The Americans, Hannibal, Fargo and Mad Men. Plus a special You’re the Worst “Music Monday” end credits rundown and “Out of the Box” round-up.

Now is the turn of a huge range of shows we have been watching this year from network, cable and streaming with comedy, drama and all those other hard to categorize scripted offerings. There has been so many fantastic individual moments that we have had to split this post into two otherwise the scrolling would be endless.

Here is Part 2 of the standout costuming moments in 2015.

DianeCamo Queen

Diane Lockhart is the ultimate when it comes to power dressing in the office – make sure you have at least one piece of statement jewelry – and she manages to transfer this skill to the snowy hunting climate working the all camouflage and furry hat getup like no other.

Looking S2The Morning After the Night Before Award

Looking dudes killing it with their cardigan, plaid and most importantly bathrobe attire in the season 2 premiere. Patrick also hugged a tree, which was possibly the most adorable TV moment of 2015.

Kit HaringtonHair Most Watched

When you want people to believe a HUGE character has been killed off don’t say the actor who plays him has cut his hair because for the next few months every public appearance will be under the hair watch spotlight; whether this be at Wimbledon or an airport (which also happens to be where said show is filmed). Nice suit, Kit. Sunglasses won’t protect your identity.

DaredevilInaugural Cary Agos Hot in a Hoodie Trophy

Cary Agos wore his hoodie recently much to our delight and yet we are going to give his prize to the one and only Matt Murdock who took this look to new shirtless levels in Daredevil. Rosario Dawson’s Claire also does casual cool ever so well.

Clothing Most Lived In

Mr robotIt would be remiss if while I was on the subject of hoodie wearers if I didn’t mention Elliot from Mr Robot and it just so happens that I started watching this yesterday (three episodes in and all I want to do is watch the rest). Elliot’s hoodie is very much part of his being and he pulls his hood up at any given opportunity. If a person could live in their clothing then Elliot would definitely live in his black hoodie with his black backpack as his home away from home.

Halt and Catch FireHow to Work a Sleeveless Hoodie 

This is NOT A GOOD LOOK outside of a boxing movie (and even then I would probs give it a pass) and yet there is something so mesmerizing about Lee Pace in this getup. The same can be said for pretty much all of his Halt and Catch Fire costuming (dude even makes an all white suit and tee work) and this is one show I am so glad I went back to. For actual style inspiration check out everything Donna.

Inside AmyBest Mode of Transport

Amy Schumer’s “Last Fuckable Day” sketch was sadly all too accurate, but most of the time it is better to laugh than cry and that is exactly what Inside Amy Schumer did with this moment and many others over the super strong season 3. And Julia Louis-Dreyfus makes a rowboat look cool as fuck. Is there nothing this woman can’t do?

Jane the Virgin Chapter 20Smackdown of the Year

There’s a lot that can be said about the relationship dynamics on Jane the Virgin; the Villanueva women are guaranteed to get me crying at least once an episode and I am firmly in the Team Michael camp. There is one relationship that has gone from antagonistic to friendly with a whole dose of it’s complicated in-between and the Jane/Petra situation is the one which intrigues me the most. In Chapter 20 the pair entered the fantasy wrestling ring and it was as much fun as the leather wresting attire that a pregnant Jane was wearing. Petra didn’t look too shabby in her liquid silver jumpsuit. Jane the Virgin is particularly good at mixing the soapy/fantasy elements with real world in both content and costuming; this smackdown episode showcases these elements.

The Reality Show I Wish Was Real 

2015 saw the end of several TV Ate My Wardrobe favorites including Kroll Show, which bowed out before it hit any kind of slump. There are many sketches that could have filled this slot – PubLIZity being a close contender – and yet it was this one off Farley piece that has me randomly saying “Look like dis.” Chelsea Peretti and Jenny Slate were my ideal Kroll Show guest stars and this included both women much to my delight.

Krystal Orphan BlackUnexpected Character Inspiration 

More reasons to adore Tatiana Maslany as not only did she deliver yet another fantastic new clone to the Orphan Black table, but she also got her initial inspiration from one of favorite places (as related to the above choice). Maslany told The LA Times that “Krystal was different because she was meant to die in the first episode. I was really into Kroll Show at the time. And I was doing PubLIZity. I was wandering around the set as Krystal in that voice, and they were, like, “We can’t kill her.” Then we started to develop her into a full character and not just me doing Jenny Slate.”

UnREALOutfit Most Inspired by Lindsay Weir 

Much like Lindsay Weir, Rachel on UnREAL pretty much had her army green jacket glued to her and while Rachel’s life is definitely more of a mess there is certain Lindsay quality to her.

The Good Wife 7.07 Alicia bed headHow to get Dressed in a Super Sexy and Snarky Manner 

The Good Wife gave us the TV equivalent of blue balls squandering both Finn and Jason; instead having Alicia hook up with Johnny and Peter. At least the latter delivered on this perfect giving none of the fucks moment.

Masters of Sex 3.05 Virginia bretton stripesStripes Delight

A classic look is classic no matter the decade and Virginia’s striped tee and pants ensemble on Masters of Sex is just that. If Emma Stones stripes and polka dots is my platonic ideal of an outfit then this is a close runner-up.

Lady Gaga AHSMost Old Hollywood 

No one looks more killer (in more ways than one on this occasion) than Lady Gaga as The Countess on American Horror Story: Hotel capturing all that is glam and seductive about Old Hollywood.

Elementary 3.17 JoanFinding the Ideal Location for an Outfit that Looks Like a Painting 

Every episode of Elementary is a costuming dream and Joan’s fashion palette is full of patterned delights including this stunning Victoria Beckham shirt dress; it looks like a shot of springtime against the snowy backdrop. There are several shows which use the winter shooting schedule to their advantage and Elementary is on this list (The Americans and Hannibal are two others).

The LeftoversInternational Assassin of the Year

There could only be one and the meaning behind Kevin Garvey’s suit – which Justin Theroux fits rather nicely – plays out in an incredibly surreal way in one of televisions best episodes of 2015 as The Leftovers hit new bonkers and brilliant heights.
The Americans 3.12 big blue phoneHow to Make a Silly Looking Prop Look Entirely Serious

I mean it still looks pretty silly, but I don’t want to say that too loud as Keri Russell is giving killer side eye and it’s pretty terrifying. This is also one of Elizabeth’s best wigs of the season (which is actually a slightly less wavy repeat from S2). Blonde is definitely working for her.

Master of NoneUnexpected Sylvia Plath Quote Usage 

Master of None took one of my favorite passages from any book and used it in an unexpected way that was so unbelievably perfect. Yes I burst into tears at the reading and portrayal of the fig tree passage from The Bell Jar. Here is that incredible quote in full.

“I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn’t quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn’t make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.”

Talking TV friendships, real life unions, costuming and make-up behind the scenes snaps on this week’s Insta round-up. Plus previewing a couple of things for 2016.

The caption on this photo says it all really. Loving this lip color on Elisabeth Moss.

 

Halfway through Jessica Jones and the Jessica/Trish friendship is currently my favorite thing on a long list of things I really like about this show. There is a rich history and their relationship is so incredibly layered; it’s not always easy, but they can count on each other even when they disagree. Glad to see it looks just as fun on set.

 

Now for more Jessica Jones cast shenanigans. This time with hats.

Mindy Kaling mixes patterns with aplomb with her wardrobe and decor choices; everything about this screams my perfect room (okay I would probably switch out the poster).

 

Veering into movie Insta because I can never have enough of Effie Trinket and these A-MAZING looks.

 

Fox gifted us with a Grease: Live teaser yesterday and I am so ready for Kether Donohue as Jan (and Aaron Tveit as Danny).

Getting Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vibes from this Elementary set dressing and woah do they really get the best views.

 

The Scandal love interest web continues to spin ever on and while I was very much Team David and Abby, I could definitely get on board this new pairing. The regifting in the last episode was not a classy move though and David loses points for that one.

 

Celebrity weddings and the coverage of these events can range from no photos at all (see Jen and Justin) to a magazine deal (see Brad and Angelina). And then there is Sofia Vergara who decided to cut out the middle man and use social media to share plenty of photos of her special day with Joe Manganiello. This custom Zuhair Murad gown is stunning.

A post shared by Sofia Vergara (@sofiavergara) on

 

And there are plenty of Modern Family faces on hand to help celebrate the big day. For many more dancing and party pictures of the big event head here. Meanwhile I will be contemplating the politics of celebrity access particularly at an event like this.

Meanwhile, also on Jane these guys are trying out another fashion idea.

 

On New Girl they’re bringing back parka chic. And it is working.

Welcome to the Looking feels portion of this week’s TV Insta and as the movie starts shooting this week most of the cast are back in San Francisco. It is bittersweet that this charming show is coming to an end so soon, but at least there will be one last final hurrah instead of just getting canceled into oblivion.

We start shooting next week and I don't mean squirrels or cans

A post shared by Lauren Weedman (@lauren_weedman) on

 

It’s not just the romantic pairings that I am heavily invested in and I want all the good things for long time besties Dom and Doris.

 

Back to the beginning and a super cute shot that is reinforcing my confused shipper feelings. Never have I gone back and forth this much on who I want a character to end up with.

@maybeayacash is my favorite actress. I think she's one of the most important actresses of our generation. Her genius performance in last night's episode of #YoureTheWorst was inspiring, raw, authentic, riveting, provocative, and powerful and it hit a chord within viewers that can help people's lives. I would also like everyone to know that during the time of shooting that episode, she had a horrible cold! For her to give the performance she did even if she didn't have a cold would be special, but the fact that she delivered what she did WITH the cold is especially spectacular. It was such a gratifying experience to shoot our scene in the bedroom; to shoot a scene like that with an actress you admire and have a genuine human connection with is special. In general, I'm just grateful and excited to be on a show with subversive female characters that challenge dominant ideologies of how women are supposed to behave and look like. Lindsay and Gretchen represent women that cannot be put in a box and neatly wrapped up in a bow. We are not perfect, we represent the beautiful messes that real human beings are.

A post shared by Kether Donohue (@ketherdonohue) on

 

Last week’s episode of You’re the Worst answered the Gretchen mystery in a way that managed to make me want to curl up and sob while still delivering on the laughs, which is an incredibly hard line to walk. Kether Donohue posted a tribute to Aya Cash’s stunning performance giving further insight into this episode and nails what makes this such a special show. Plus this photo delivers on Cash as my sunglasses queen.

 

And this is just super cute. Plus there are those Ray Bans again – get on my face. Sunday Funday Halloween tonight!

so this is my aesthetic, paige n pizza. #theamericansfx #eatingud

A post shared by Holly Taylor (@holly_taylor) on

 

Dream aesthetic ahoy from Holly Taylor wearing what looks to be an excellent sweater and living the food dream on the set of The Americans. I’ve said it before, but it is easy to buy that Taylor could be Keri Russell’s daughter from her hair alone.

 

It is also easy to believe that Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett could be mother/son from their excellent matching resting bitch face.

Family selfie! #janethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

More impressive family casting similarities and this super smiley selfie, while hanging out in Jane’s favorite store is far too adorable.

 

All the heart eye emojis because I have strong feelings about bathroom hangouts both fictional and real life.

 

Ideal cute dungarees outfit ahoy from Jenny Slate.

 

These might not quite go with the spectacular dragon necklace and the other costume embellishments Daenerys wears on Game of Thrones, but they could hide quite nicely under her blonde locks.

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.

A post shared by Joshua Jackson (@vancityjax) on

 

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.

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

 

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.

A whole lot of celebrating going on this week with both Pride and the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality across all 50 states. Plus reunions, returning to work, lipstick inspiration and a dream holiday location.

 

The Orange is the New Black cast partied at New York Pride on the Netflix float and there is some excellent cross show promotion from Danielle Brooks; I really need this vest top in my life.

 

A perfectly timed leap for joy.

 

More OITNB lovely ladies at Pride.

 

And then back to work.

 

Landry grew a moustache and if only Allison Tolman could be in the late 70s set Fargo season 2.

 

All the Looking and Patrick/Kevin related feelings from this photo. I know Kevin is ultimately bad for Patrick, but I can’t help but ship them a teeny tiny bit.

 

Tracee Ellis Ross looked stunning at the BET Awards including this excellent lip color and now we know what shade/brand it is – Nars ‘Damned’ lip pencil. Also giving a much closer look at all the amazing jewelry she accessorized her first outfit of the night with.

 

Everything Jessica Williams, always.

Allison is not afraid of babies at all!!

Ellen Page has been shooting her new movie Tallulah in New York and she has been documenting this on Instagram including many photos of her co-star Allison Janney. I cannot wait to see them together again on screen.

Braids aplenty for Maisie Williams at Glastonbury last weekend. Lip balm is as much as must as wellies are at this festival.

 

Yesterday we posted the new teaser for The Affair and Julia Goldani Telles gives us a glimpse of this idyllic location. A vacation in a place like this (but with far less drama and anguish) would be wonderful.

Mad Men returns this weekend and even though the show has been wrapped for sometime there’s a couple of treats from costume designer Janie Bryant and all round Mad Men queen Kiernan Shipka. Plus some cancellation sadness mixed in with show renewals and a tee I definitely need in my life.

 

The Variety Emmy Studio was a stylish affair and a very happy one for some reunited actors including Masters of Sex duo Lizzy Caplan and Allison Janney. This photo looks like the happiest place in the world.

The last season of Mad Men starts 1 week from today.

A post shared by Kiernan Shipka (@kiernanshipka) on

 

Kiernan Shipka has posted a bunch of old Mad Men photos to celebrate its return this weekend; this is both wonderful/super cute and also inadvertently makes me feel ancient. The adorable wins out over the age thing.

 

I love seeing sketch to screen shots and Janie Bryant’s work on Mad Men is always exquisite. Looking forward to all the costuming treats from the final episodes.

Caught in the ACT! That devil Vinny K! #photobombing with @peterhyozell

Vincent Kartheiser showing off some excellent photobomb skills at the Mad Men Black & Red Ball. 

 

The Looking cancellation sadness is still very strong and I don’t think this photo is helping much there.

 

Making things a little better is Lennon Parham’s Playing House season 2 table read offering.

 

Gillian Jacobs has gone all Three’s Company and she’s making it work.

 

Not everyone gets to do their homework in front of giant Lenin mural. The perks of working on The Americans (which also got renewed this week!).

 

Thanks Busy Philipps for making me aware of this Freaks and Geeks t-shirt and Passive Juice Motel.

Season and series finales (*SOB*), new season prep, mocked up album artwork and promotional tours are all part of this week’s busy “Behind the Insta-Scenes.”

You're going to be seeing a lot #KrollShow photos from me tonight. #ThankYou

A post shared by Nick Kroll (@nickkroll) on

 

Kroll Show ended its third and final season last night; there are photos from Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate and Chelsea Peretti in this week’s edition and I’m going to miss Farley, PubLIZity, Too Much Tuna, Ruth Diamond Phillips and many other wonderful beautiful fuck ups from this show. One part of the above collection of Kroll cast and crew that has me getting emotional is Jenny Slate’s ‘First Lady of Kroll Show’ sash.

 

Jenny Slate posted this glorious photo of an important moment in the history of Kroll Show. Excellent red lipstick points also awarded.

Final day of Ep10

And now a season finale which is now the series finale and I’m super sad about today’s Looking news. Yes, they’re going to get a special to wrap it up so that’s something, but not the something I was hoping for despite the teeeerible viewing figures. Here is Patrick’s big Felicity moment.

The big Mad Men goodbye has only just begun and I am so not ready for it. What I am more than ready for is all the sartorial offerings from January Jones and the rest of the cast. So here for this monochromatic look and for Jones’ Instagram game.

 

Actual crying at this mocked up album art for Marnie & Desi in total She & Him fashion despite how much he protests against this comparison. The music on Girls and especially the tracks from the closing credits has been A+ this season and thankfully did not include this duo (Marnie by herself and particularly in this finale is strangely bearable).

Excited to work with Gillian and Chris again. #XFilesReunion

A post shared by David Duchovny (@davidduchovny) on

 

Earlier this evening I wrote about how thrilled I am about The X-Files returning and David Duchovny shares a flash from the past to say the same. Hopefully there will be some updated versions of these kinds of shots when they return to the set.

In other TV news it was announced today that Masters of Sex will be back for season 3 Sunday, July 12 and costume designer extraordinaire Ane Crabtree shows a sneak peek into her design/inspiration process with Libby Masters herself, Caitlin Fitzgerald.

 

The big Game of Thrones season 5 promo push continues with Maisie Williams taking over the Entertainment Weekly Instagram account before her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

 

Bonus Maisie Williams from the official GoT account posing with both Arya and Sansa Funko Pop figures. If only the pair would be reunited on screen soon.

 

Netflix launched down under in New Zealand and Australia this week with some of the stars of their original programming on hand to celebrate including Orange is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba and Yael Stone here with Netflix Daredevil newbies Charlie Cox and Deborah Ann Woll.
