Best of the 2018 Oscars Red Carpet: Bold Color and Pattern

5 Mar

After months of awards shows, the big one is here! And while the show itself was a bit of a snooze overall, the red carpet delivered on the bold color front. After the mostly black Golden Globe ensembles, the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements were present in the form of pins and speeches.

Culminating in Frances McDormand’s incredible speech.

If you want to know more about what an “inclusion rider” is, Caroline Framke has this covered here.

For all things Oscars fashion highlights there will be a couple of posts going up today. No, it isn’t sexist to ask what designer an attendee is wearing.I pretty much screamed with joy when I saw photos of Jennifer Garner when she arrived. This is some Sydney Bristow era level of amazing in Atelier Versace.Bubblegum pink is a look for the Oscars and holy shit does Viola Davis score with Michael Kors Collection in this shade. And she somehow manages to not look saccharine.
My favorite all-time Oscar look is Michelle Williams in mustard yellow Vera Wang. It is not surprising to discover that Greta Gerwig in custom floral Rodarte in this particular shade is an instant win. I love everything about this, right down to her lipstick color. This is the dress of a winner; Allison Janney is serving up so much sleeve drama in Reem Acra.How to wear a bow and make it look like art; the Nicole Kidman in Armani Privé story.One of the highlights of the evening was the Tiffany Haddish/Maya Rudolph presenting pair. PT Anderson you better make a movie with these amazing women. Haddish wore the Alexander McQueen frock she bought for the Girls Trip premiere, which she also wore when she hosted SNL. The Ugg slippers are a nice touch.

Maya Rudolph’s crimson Valentino frock looks particularly great in motion as she walks on the stage. And on the red carpet Tiffany Haddish looks like royalty in a traditional Eritrean Zuria princess gown, as s tribute to her late father.Sadly neither Daniel Kaluuya nor Timothée Chalamet won Best Actor, but they did seem to be having a good time on the red carpet. Kaluuya mixed things up in brown Brunello Cucinelli and Timothée Chalamet went the nearly all-white approach in Berluti. Armie Hammer couldn’t make the Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday because he was sick. Thanks to modern medicine he got into this velvet Armani suit and also managed to fire a hot dog cannon. Elizabeth Chambers also wears Armani in another fabulous asymmetric gown on the night.I finally started watching One Day at a Time, you guys were right, it is amazing. And Rita Moreno took things to new fashion heights last night by wearing the same dress she wore when she won an Oscar for West Side Story in 1962.The King of Wakanda isn’t going to wear just a regular tux to the Oscars. Chadwick Boseman has shown exactly how to do menswear during the Black Panther promo tour and beyond. On Saturday it was polka dot Burberry, at the Oscars it was Givenchy. Kelly Marie Tran showed the not so glamorous side of Oscar fashion on Instagram. I love her. And she looks fantastic in plunging Jenny Packham.  Betty Gabriel has been a style star this award season and she went big at the Oscars in a dress that is part ethereal, part sheer sexiness in Tony Ward.Winner of Best Original Screenplay Jordan Peele wore fire engine red to the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, but went with something more traditional at the Oscars in Calvin Klein. And Chelsea Peretti shows velvet isn’t just for tuxedo jackets. I have a new Elio shirt I want to add to my collection. James Ivory wears Elio on his chest and won Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me by Your Name. Edited to add details of where you too can acquire an Elio shirt.

Best of the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet

4 Mar

Happy Oscars Day! But really this means Happy Day After the Independent Spirit Awards! My official favorite award season red carpet. The reason it is my favorite? Don’t get me wrong I love a fancy gown, but the ensembles at the Spirit Awards are all about having fun with fashion. These are the kind of outfits I would wear, suits have more color and the casual/fancy vibe is infectious.

Plus this is a ceremony where Nick Kroll and John Mulaney are the hosts and Timothée Chalamet wins Best Actor.

And for some Oscar weekend reading, check out my deep dive into the many eggs that feature in the Best Picture nominees for Little White Lies.

As with last year’s Spirit Awards, this was a blisteringly funny opening monologue. This time they called out some of the very bad men of Hollywood including the terrible apologies. And they don’t just limit it to Weinstein and Spacey. Mulaney/Kroll they did not drop the ball on this one and they really should host more award shows.

“Chalamet, you stay.” Especially because he gives the most adorable speech. He makes me believe that things will be okay.

For all the award speeches head here.

To the fashion! *Fires up “Crash Into Me,” starts weeping*

Both Saoirse Ronan and Beanie Feldstein look like ’60s queens. Ronan has a whole Twiggy thing going on in embellished Prada. Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani have consistently been the best dressed couple during award season and the press tour for The Big Sick. This is no different.

Here they demonstrate how you can pattern clash as a couple to the highest sartorial level. I am weak for stripes; Emily’s Whitney Mero dress is hitting all the right spots. Kumail is looking all kinds of Hannibal in ASOS plaid.

This dress also serves up so much photo drama. For their acceptance speech for Best First Screenplay.

Yesterday I found out that Dee Rees has been using Beyoncé’s stylist, this is another fantastic suit choice in a season of fantastic suit choices.

Ladysuits and Capes would be the name of my boutique (I’m sure I can think of something punny, but it is early). Dee Rees and Sarah Broom are high on the list of couple style goals. The lining of Broom’s cape and everything about this outfit is elegant af.

Mudbound won the Robert Altman Award and here is Dee Rees’ speech.Last night, I mentioned on Twitter that Aubrey Plaza always looks great at this award show and this is another dress I am coveting hard. Peter Pan collar and the contrasting sleeves on this Miu Miu frock elevates it. While I don’t love the sheer parts of Elisabeth Olsen’s Zuhair Murad dress, I am thrilled Ingrid Goes West won Best First Feature.If I could have any ladysuit it would be a green velvet ladysuit. Sarah Silverman is living out my dream in Hottie + Lord.Pleats, beautiful green pleats. Allison Williams looks a vision in Andrew Gn.Ava DuVernay is another Independent Spirit Awards repeat style queen. This time in puffed sleeves custom Greta Constantine.Patterned slip dress sexiness for Betty Gabriel in Tadashi Shoji. It’s almost animal print, without being animal print.Leaning into the leopard print trend is Margot Robbie in Louis Vuitton. This is what I mean when I say how much fun can be had on this red carpet.

The Independent Spirit Awards is an event that encourages good suits. A bold suit for Chadwick Boseman isn’t just for the Black Panther press tour; this Burberry polka dot look is incredible. And we’re in luck as Boseman has posted a lot of good photos to his Instagram, also featuring Black Panther co-stars Danai Gurira and Daniel Kaluuya. Get Out won Best Feature, Jordan Peele won Best Director. Peele also won Best Jacket in red double-breasted Calvin Klein. Patterned button-down shirts feature a lot on the new series of Queer Eye; the Fab Five would definitely be into everything Mike Colter is doing here. The turtleneck/suit jacket combo is winner, the sneakers work at this event and my Jay Ellis swoon levels are high.I’m still not quite over how terrifying Barry Keoghan is in The Killing of a Secret Deer, but this is adorable.Feeeeeeeeelings. So many CJ and Josh feeeeeeeeelings.A photo of a photo being taken and I love everything about this. Also Allison Janney looks flaming hot in hot pink Pamella Roland.Be still my Lady Bird loving heart. Why yes I am watching this again today.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

23 Feb

Black Panther is now out, but this doesn’t mean the cast won’t be gracing “Out of the Box” this week. And yep, there is more awards season shenanigans with the BAFTAs, fashion week, magazine covers, premiere and other sartorially pleasing events.As with the Golden Globes and the Costume Designers Guild Awards—for more on that red carpet head here—the majority of attendees wore black in support of the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements.

Lupita Nyong’o keeps with her dresses that resemble some form of armor theme, this time in Elie Saab. Also with that all important twirl factor.

Before the BAFTAs, Lupita was joined by Danai Gurira in South Africa. These stunning shots could easily be a magazine shoot.

Formal ladysuits are still having a moment on the red carpet much to my delight; Ruth Wilson looks fabulous in Christian Dior. The sandals aren’t the obvious choice, but I think they work. As does that shade of red lipstick. This Zuhair Murad ensemble was probably chosen before the Black Panther press tour, but it is hard not to see the influence here. Naomie Harris looks stunning in this feathered and sheer number—sometimes I like these two things combined—and as with the Golden Globes the pants/dress hybrid is working like a charm. Fashion Week has now hit Milan, at the Gucci show Rowan Blanchard is delivering 1970s reporter with a hot scoop in a green jumpsuit. I love everything about this.Keeping with the ’70s look is Aya Cash at the opening night of her new play Kings. Cash spilled her outfit secrets on Instagram; this orange dress beauty is vintage and the shoes are Forever 21. Pop socks continue to be a thing I want to try out, but I’m not sure I can pull off.At the Game Night premiere, Sharon Horgan wears The Vampire’s Wife and of course I am super into this witchy prairie styling. 

Millie Bobby Brown looks like she is going to Spring Formal in polka dot Rodarte and I mean that as a compliment. This frock also reminds me of what Rodarte fave Kirsten Dunst wore for her Nylon cover. At the Brit Awards, Brown holds a white rose as a sign of support for the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns.Atlanta is back next week for season two! I am so ready. At the premiere Lakeith Stanfield, Brian Tyree Henry, Donald Glover and Zazie Beetz are all serving up strong looks. Glover is also keeping with the ’70s inspiration in Salvatore Ferragamo, which is all over this week’s column.And at the after party, Zazie Beetz shows how to go from fancy white halter to casual, in one easy grey sweatshirt step. These are some GQMF at a GQ event celebrating Timothée Chalamet’s cover, including CMBYN co-star Armie Hammer.  A good array of jackets on display.

After weeks of watching Darren Criss giving such an incredible performance on American Crime Story it took a moment to adjust to see him smiling next to a non-Versace looking Edgar Ramirez. Jamie Dornan is also sporting the beard I hope he never shaves off again; in this facial hair contest, Hammer is definitely trailing behind.  On the slightly more casual end of things is man of the hour Timothée Chalamet with Kid Cudi (yes I still miss How To Make It In America) and Black Panther’s Winston Duke. A pop of orange is the way to make a dark suit shine.Jordan Peele got to turn Janelle Monáe into a Hitchcock protagonist for W Magazine and the results are as incredible as this cover is. And ladysuits aplenty! GQ Style teased the Oscar Isaac profile on Monday night; on Tuesday they did not let us down. Not only is this a mesmerizing shoot featuring a whole lot of suits, but the interview goes deep on Isaac’s career, his process, how his mother’s death impacted his relationships and that he was shooting Star Wars and Annihilation at the same time.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

16 Feb

Another week featuring award season shenanigans, NYFW and the blessing that has been the Black Panther press tour. The gift that keeps on giving.

The new Americans artwork for the final season was unveiled this week and it is just as stylistically stylized as the previous five years. Always such a visual pleasure. At Michael Kors, Blake Lively leaned into Valentine’s Day with heart embellished Louboutins and a fabulous red PVC trench, Zendaya mixed athleisure with a sleeveless duster and Emily Blunt is a pattern clashing queen.

The show itself was a lot more eclectic than you would normally get from this designer, but I am a big fan of the Agatha Christie influence. And the leopard print. Stranger Things teen Caleb McLaughlin has been one of the shining stars in menswear on the red carpet over the last couple of years, putting a lot of adults to sartorial shame. McLaughlin looks like he is having fun with fashion so it doesn’t come as a surprise to see him at the Phillip Lim 3.1 show. Here he is with Zosia Mamet; I love her turtleneck/jacket combo.

How to brighten up your day in one step; wear yellow. Jessica Williams looks fabulous going into to the Tibi NYFW show.Dee Rees strikes another ladysuit win in this floral metallic number at the WGA Awards.More florals to fall for with Chelsea Peretti in N°21.

Earlier this week, I watched Get Out for the first time since it came out at the cinema and knowing what is going to happen makes you realize just how layered every line is. I am so happy to see Jordan Peele getting recognized for his work including winning at the WGA for Best Original Screenplay.I am really excited to see Annihilation and the cast is part of the reason why. Delightful dress twirling fun with Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez at the premiere. The Call Me By Your Name promo train keeps on coming, much to my delight. Want to buy the house in the movie? Well now you can. A lot more affordable is the new issue of GQ, which Timothée Chalamet is the cover star of. The whole vibe is moody, emo fun including this shot. That Saint Laurent jacket jumps on the covet list.

This comment from Armie Hammer is very cute. I’m gonna be sad when the CMBYN promotion is done and dusted.

“Timmy had research to do. For me, it was mostly: Do you know how to ride a bike? The day I got there, I barged in on a piano lesson and was, like, ‘As soon as you’re done, we’re hanging out.’ From that moment on, we were together all the time.”Black Panther is now out and we have one more week of this fabulous press tour to enjoy. The film is fantastic, as are the costumes and you can read my interview with Ruth E. Carter here.

The turtleneck/jacket trend continues to be doing big things. Especially when it involves Chadwick Boseman sporting this floral Musika Frere suit.Also at the same New York screening Letitia Wright makes a difficult Coach ensemble look fabulous. That jacket has a kooky ’70s vibe, which is totally in my wheelhouse.

Wright’s performance as Shuri is one of the standout performances in a film of standout performances. I hope we’re going to see a lot more of her in the Marvel universe.Lupita Nyong’o covers the “Culture of Hair Issue” of Allure. The cover is striking, but this shot is really fun, which is why I picked it. In the piece Lupita discusses her hair history, the larger cultural implications, the products she uses and what it was like working on Black Panther:

“On set, it was just such an inspirational experience because so much thought was put into this film, and every single aspect of it was rich and beautiful and just arresting, actually. To see this aspirational African world that actually becomes an example for the whole wide world was spellbinding. We were all very much aware that we were in something extremely special.”

For more in-depth conversation about the celebration of natural black hair in Black Panther I would highly recommend reading this interview with Camille Friend over at The CutThere are no damsels in distress in Black Panther, the age range of the leading women varies and they aren’t just there to be a love interest. Shuri (Letitia Wright), Romonda (Angela Bassett), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) all have agency; it is incredible seeing four black women taking center stage like this. This Essence cover celebrates the Black Panther cast and this is a powerful image.

Best of the 2018 SAG Awards: Bold Color and Florals

22 Jan

More SAG Awards red carpet treats to kick-start your week. For everything that sparkles head here, below you will find a lot of florals, some strong color, plenty of couple goals and a pair that made my shipper heart all the happier. What better way to start the second part of this round-up than with Mary Steenburgen in forest green with a floral sandals peeping out from the bottom.

Why yes I did get a little teary at the end of the recent Good Place. I love that Steenburgen and Ted Danson are currently starring in two of my favorite comedies at the moment. Velvet isn’t just for suits as Felicity Huffman demonstrates in a plunging Monsoori. William H. Macy won for Shameless and this pair continues to win my heart. Everything about this shot makes my heart feel fuller. Looking great to boot; Chelsea Peretti wears Needle and Thread, Jordan Peele is in Valentino. Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe have become permanent fixtures on here during award season. From tuxedo twinning at the Golden Globes to this delicate Germy Maalouf floral bodice gown. Brown won Best Actor for This is Us and looks cool af in Armani. Check out young Randall’s amazing tux here.

And he continues to give great speeches.
This is Us won Ensemble in a Drama in what was one of the big surprises of the night. While I think at times this show can be super emotionally manipulative (as the tears stream down my face), the acting is always top notch. Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson are all in the same shade of blue, which can’t be a coincidence.

As far as speeches go this is also a very good one as Milo Ventimiglia makes sure he thanks the production team from top to bottom. Striking a stylish tone in white and matching her TV family on the sartorial scale is Tracee Ellis Ross in Ralph & Russo. And Gucci continues to deliver stylish whimsy as demonstrated by Brie Larson in this pretty floral number. Thankfully Jane the Virgin returns this Friday (January 26), but in the meantime feast your eyes on Yael Grobglas in shoulder ruffles and Gina Rodriguez mixing delicate florals with a severe dark bodice in Rasario Resort. Orangy lips to match the orange flowers on Zoe Kazan’s Miu Miu dress and this is a great look from H to T (always channeling my inner Tyra). Last Jedi fave, Kelly Marie Tran looks stunning in Mary Katrantzou. There are so many ways to do fancy florals. This is a knockout.Queen Ann Dowd looking super regal in Escada. Bow down. A jumpsuit? A dress? Either way Sally Hawkins in chevron Dior Haute Couture is a wacky treat on this SAG red carpet.Big Little Lies sandwich of happiness.
Be still my shipper heart. Exhibit A.

Listen kid, your mother looks so beautiful at the sag awards tonight…

Exhibit B. Great lipstick too, Winona.

 

Best of the 2016 Creative Arts Emmys Red Carpet

12 Sep

The Creative Arts Emmys were held over two nights this weekend (September 10 and 11) kicking off this year’s TV celebrating festivities. Game of Thrones dominated – including costume design – with 9 wins and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won 5. Amy Poehler received her first ever (yep, ever) for guest hosting SNL with Tina Fey, but alas neither of them were there to pick up their award. Here is the full list of winners.

Below are some of the best looks from the red carpet over the two nights and this is lovely prelude to the main event coming.allison-janneyAllison Janney crushes it always in both the amount of nominations she has received and her choice of frock; this is no exception. Full marks for accessories with a standout necklace, bracelet and earrings, which accentuate the outfit without overwhelming it.joanne-froggattWhat Joanne Froggatt needs is to probably borrow some of Allison Janney’s jewelry ideas, but otherwise this is a good warm-up before the main event and Downton Abbey’s last hurrah. rachel-bloomRachel Bloom goes for a bit of whimsy with a keyboard tie on Saturday, but it is her shoes that are giving me full on heart eyes. Excellent red lipstick choice too.

I was disappointed Bloom didn’t get nominated in the comedy actress category; however Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won two Emmys over the weekend for Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series.ellen-pageNow to the Sunday night and Ellen Page adds a bit of edge to the ladysuit with leather pants and a pair of boots. lake-bellGame of Thrones won the costume design award and Lake Bell’s chain mail looking Naeem Khan dress is worthy of Cersei in full battle mode. chelsea-peretti-and-jordan-peeleFavorite celeb couple alert! I’m a big fan of the blue tux and loafers that look like slippers so Jordan Peele is crushing it for me and Chelsea Peretti’s frock ticks all the floral boxes. kristen-schaalThere’s a 1920s bride vibe that I am so here for (maybe because my wedding is now less than two weeks away – eek) and Kristen Schaal’s got the whole red lipstick thing working for her.rupaulRocking a lot of polka dots in a joyful pink suit is RuPaul and after 8 seasons of Drag Race this is the first Emmy win for RuPaul; he definitely picked an excellent outfit for the occasion.

 

Stay tuned for all our Emmy red carpet coverage this time next week!

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Apr

What is probably going to end up as the musical event of the year took place over the weekend and this week’s Instagram round-up kicks off with this seminal moment. Plus the usual TV season beginnings, endings and everything in-between as there are a whole lot of shows wrapping up and just getting started.

A post shared by amandla (@amandlastenberg) on

 

This was a huge weekend for HBO, but rather than dragons it is Beyoncé dominating pop culture conversation after she released her visual tour de force album Lemonade. There is the massive cultural impact as well as the more surface level aspects to pore over like every outfit Beyoncé wears throughout.

Plus plenty of celebrity cameos including TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite Amandla Stenberg and she shared this very cool looking shot.

When you @beyonce af

A post shared by Zendaya (@zendaya) on

 

Zendaya also appeared in Lemonade and instead of a moment from the shoot, here she is enjoying the broadcast of this incredible visual and musical feat.

 

Lots of shows wrapping up this week with Scandal being one of them and the sight of Angela Bassett is enough to get me to check back in for the finale (although it looks like she might have been there in a non-acting capacity).

#GoodWifeFarewell 🍷

A post shared by The Good Wife (@thegoodwife_cbs) on

 

There was a lot of wine on The Good Wife this week even by Alicia’s standards and here is fantastic shot of a laughing Julianna Margulies with a glass of red (or most likely grape juice).

 

Broad City finished its third season last week and here is a very cute photo of Abbi and Ilana from filming the finale.

With two of my favorite actors today- Messina and the Red Glasses

A post shared by ikebarinholtz (@ikebarinholtz) on

 

Those red glasses are very special. I checked back in with The Mindy Project a couple of weeks ago and it will be interesting to see how the rest of this season plays out now they have done that big thing.

Some locations are better than others:) #TopoftheLake2 #TOTL2

A post shared by Elisabeth Moss (@elisabethmossofficial) on

 

Shooting of Top of the Lake season 2 is underway and Elisabeth Moss is reveling in the stunning locations.

 

And in her incredible new co-star. Okay this photo is a month old and I don’t know how I missed it first time around, but there is too much amazing in this one picture not to share. I am beyond excited for the return of Top of the Lake as it was a big 2013 highlight.

(12/12) Ps. Thanks for the dragon egg cookies, they were THA BOMB

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

 

Maisie Williams surprised some UCLA students having a Game of Thrones viewing party by joining them for the season 6 premiere. She even brought snacks, but none of them were dragon egg shape.

Date night #unrealtv

A post shared by Shiri Appleby (@shiriappleby) on

 

The UnREAL cast continue to deliver with set treats including this shot of new guy cast member Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Rady in formal attire.

 

A couple of things – I love that Margaret Qualley hangs out with Liv Tyler (who I also think could easily play her sister) and this is a reminder that The Leftovers will soon start shooting its third (and final *sob*) season.

 

Meanwhile, Justin Theroux continues to work on his fabulous hiatus beard.

 

Now for the most adorable moment on TV this week and Jane the Virgin costume designer Rachel Sage Kunin crushed it with these 1920s silent movies inspired ensembles.

A post shared by Kate Young (@kateyoung) on

 

Michelle Williams appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week to discuss her current Broadway stint as well as the Shia LaBeouf incident from when she was in Cabaret. She wore a fantastic Louis Vuitton outfit and I am so pleased stylist Kate Young gives a close up of the stunning skirt detail. Excellent lipstick points as always too (click here to see more).

On Late Night with Seth Meyers Jordan Peele casually dropped it into conversation that he is now married to Chelsea Peretti and Peretti confirmed the happy news on Instagram. So what better way to end this week’s Insta highlights than with this little cute guy in his Hawaiian shirt.

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.

 

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!

A post shared by Michiel Huisman (@michielhuisman) on

 

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.

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.

30 Dec

One last Behind the Insta-Scenes for 2015 and as you can probably gather there is not a lot of set action going on right now. Instead we have plenty of fun holiday hangouts, festive decorations and some red carpet treats because some of the Star Wars cast never stop working.

Tis the season to be jolly! I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas. Xxxxxx

A post shared by John Boyega (@johnboyega) on

 

Taking the title of most relevant pop culture Christmas tree decoration. I want one.

 

And a closer runner up for this prize is Sarah Jessica Parker’s Alexander Hamilton bauble. I also want one of these.

 

Back to Star Wars and Carrie Brownstein and company have some very on point socks.

 

Daisy Ridley is back on premiere duty for The Force Awakens and as “Out of the Box” is concluding its Best of 2015 countdown this is the only place to shower praise on another excellent red carpet dress choice. This time Ridley has gone for super floral purple Jason Wu.

 

Because her hair looks really great and I spy a cape.

Laverne Cox taking a moment to share this collection of magazine cover delights also makes me very happy.

Best of the Emmy Red Carpet – Bold Color and Print

21 Sep

Pink was not the only color on the Emmy red carpet and this is one of the brightest and boldest displays in recent years with a lot less monochromatic offerings. We’ve given you sparkle, now here are some patterned treats.

Ellie KemperEllie Kemper didn’t get nominated for The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but she more than makes up for this in a stunning multi-color Naeem Khan dress; definitely a top 5 pick.

Zoe KazanBetween Ellie Kemper and Zoe Kazan I am getting rather mesmerized by their frocks; Kazan’s red and white Miu Miu is perfect for her twee styling, which I adore. Red lipstick points ahoy!

Laverne CoxA flawless look for Laverne Cox in a teal Calvin Klein Collection dress.

Mindy KalingCanary gowns will forever have to stand up to the Best Oscar Gown and Mindy Kaling’s custom Salavador Perez is definitely striking and the highlight of the 2015 Emmy yellow frock push.

Lauren LapkusThe pattern, cut and color is gorgeous on Lauren Lapkus and I would love it if she returned to Orange is the New Black.

Kristen SchaalKristen Schaal and Lauren Lapkus could definitely play sisters and someone should get on that. Meanwhile Kristen Schaal is resplendent in shimmering Rubin Singer.

Judith LightJudith Light slaying in floral Zac Posen.

Maggie GyllenhaalGoing for big colorful ball gown Oscar de la Renta and Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn’t over accessorize this already dramatic look.

Kiernan ShipkaWe’ve entered the “I don’t know why Dior keep doing this” portion and I’m including this to show that Kiernan Shipka is very much a Magical Fashion Unicorn, but she deserves so much better than this.

January JonesThe same can be said for January Jones and she is certainly working the Ulyana Sergeenko Couture jumpsuit, but the draping is causing me to pull all kinds of confused faces. The color and brooch are stunning and yet I really wish this was a dress or a slightly more tailored jumpsuit.

January and ElisabethIn fact from behind it looks better and this shot with former co-star Elisabeth Moss is giving me all the feelings.

Danielle BrooksA twirling dream from Danielle Brooks in pleated custom Christian Siriano. Whenever I wear a pleated skirt or dress I spend half my day twirling. I don’t get much done.

Emily RobinsonThe cut of Emily Robinson’s Kayat gown reminds me of Caitlin Fitzgerald at the Golden Globes and it is working just as well for Robinson in this delicate print.

Chelsea Peretti and Jordan PeeleBest couple alert! A fun floral contrast from Chelsea Peretti in Gabriela Cadena and Jordan Peele doing the standard tuxedo thing.

Teyonah ParrisTeyonah Parris twirls in Francesca Miranda polka dots in this stunning mid-action shot.

Viola Davis EmmyClosing our Emmy gown rundown with THE moment of the night and Viola Davis winning Best Actress in a Drama. The Carmen Marc Valvo dress is amazing, her speech is better and you can watch it below.

For all our Emmy red carpet highlights head here and here.
