2017 SDCC Panel, Party and Interview Style Highlights

23 Jul

A very busy weekend for both TV and film at SDCC with lots of new trailers to click on (including the Stranger Things, which you can watch below) and plenty of panel fashion delights.

As I mentioned on Friday, the kind of outfits chosen for Comic-Con are right in my style wheelhouse. And this year did not disappoint.The Game of Thrones panel traditionally reveals very little, but where it lacked in new news it made up for with my favorite kind of outfit; yes the ladysuit.

The first glimpse I had of Sophie Turner in this amazing plaid number was an out loud scream moment. And it is still is.
And Gwendoline Christie is working another amazing oversized suit in pale blue Bella Freud. More menswear inspired looks and Cate Blanchett works a different kind of plaid in Monse, with the level of sartorial cool you would expect from this style icon. A red racing stripe and gold shoes really top this off.

Plus for the best in Cate Blanchett and Harry Styles check out the best thread on Twitter. Switching gears from ladysuits to fabulous frocks and jumpsuits that deliver on an explosion of color, print and texture at the Marvel panel.

Lupita’s Elie Saab Resort has me longing for a cocktail (good job I’m going out for brunch soon) and Danai Gurira is working the very on trend plaid with a twist. Letitia Wright is keeping things simple in white sneakers and a white frock; I cannot wait for this press tour.Also at Marvel yesterday; so much style yes from Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. This is how you do it.
Style Queen Ruth Negga and constant TV Ate My Wardrobe presence looks cool as fuck on the IMDb yacht in a beautiful dress by The Vampire’s Wife. And I now want everything by this brand.As the Fug Girls like to say, everyone looks hotter in sunglasses and the Preacher cast live up to these accessory related words of wisdom. This is a show that gives great shades and style; season 2 has been a lot of fun so far and it is one of my favorite things on at the moment.

Working that strong collar is Naomi Watts, ticking another one of my big sartorial boxes and this is a very fun photo with Kyle MacLachlan.

Watts has been crushing the Insta game of late and also gave a different kind of insight into the mind of David Lynch through text convo revelations.I’m looking forward to seeing these three team up in The Defenders and while I’m not in love with Mike Colter’s hat, he gets a pass as sometimes bad hats happen to good people.

Krysten Ritter has also been giving great Insta and from this alone I’ve decided I now ship Matt Murdock and Jessica Jones. Oh, hi Charlie Cox.In actors I adore news; here is Judy Greer and Corey Stoll at the Entertainment Weekly and FX After Dark party. Greer is vision in gingham and also a really great addition to Casual this season.The Stranger Things kids always look like they have the most energy and there’s a lot of great patterns here (including newcomer Sadie Sink’s floral frock).

And while I do have Stranger Things fatigue because it has got quite exhausting talking about this show, they have delivered a really intriguing trailer.

And again the nostalgic elements of growing up in this period have been captured. Of course I will be watching and writing about it come October. More florals and Stranger Things from Natalia Dyer in a super cute red poppy number.

 

More Miu Miu delights for Karen Gillan and some super stacked platforms. And a good place to end.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Oct

Welcome to another installment of “Out of the Box” and this week includes a fun mix of casual cool, fancy frocks and everything in between.

Jussie Smollet and Taraji P. HensonWhen not showing off their excellent resting bitch face Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett are delivering great panel attire in polka dots and plaid at Entertainment Weekly’s “EW Fest.” Henson also continues the red shoes trend and I am thankful for colorful footwear.

Matt BomerStrong sweater feelings are working overtime courtesy of Matt Bomer’s patterned knit number at the “EW Fest” especially as it is paired with a shirt and tie. Also those horn rimmed glasses. Emma Roberts’ leopard print boots are sneaking into the shot and I actually really like them; the random strapping effect on her tights, not so much.

Judy GreerSuch a delightful look from Judy Greer in Sachin & Babi Noir polka dots and stripes at the InStyle Awards.Michelle WilliamsSimultaneously adding an edge while also staying true to her twee style is Michelle Williams wearing leather Louis Vuitton and I am seriously coveting those boots.

Olivia WildeCombining two of this week’s trends – red shoes and leather – and looking all kinds of cool in floral Valentino is Olivia Wilde at the Lunchbox Fund Benefit Event.

Naomie HarrisAnother patterned delight from Valentino and this one skirts the too sheer territory; Naomie Harris is working this look at the Berlin Spectre premiere and it looks like a map from a time long ago.

Annaleigh AshfordMasters of Sex favorite and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford returns to the stage in a revival of Sylvia. Hitting the opening night red carpet in a fabulous black sequin frock and metallic pumps; Ashford also gets bonus bold lipstick points.

Best of the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet

1 Jun

TV Award season is here and to kick things off we have the Critics’ Choice Awards. Around March I get a little bit of red carpet fatigue after a long succession of award shows; now this has subsided and once again fancy frocks are what I crave. The Critics’ Choice is a fun one as it is neither full on nor is it as casual as a TCA press tour or PaleyFest.

You're the Worst Critics' ChoiceThey might have lost Best Comedy to Silicon Valley, but You’re the Worst takes home the best dressed cast award (there is no actual trophy) looking dapper as fuck. Kether Donohue goes full bombshell with Aya Cash opting for one of my favorite outfit choices in a stunning hunter green lady suit. Desmin Borges and Chris Geere scrub up rather well too and can season 2 get a premiere date, please?

Aya CashAnd because Aya Cash looks so great in this suit here is a solo shot.

Mae WhitmanA really fun studded Alice + Olivia dress for Mae Whitman which looks like either playing connect the dots with a map of the stars or a funky scientific diagram of a leaf. Either way, I love it.

Judy GreerJudy Greer carries off an awkward mid-length with aplomb in this beautiful blue print. Bonus red lipstick points at the ready.

Maggie GyllenhaalGoing full summer florals and looking stunning is Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Chelsea PerettiColor blocking in satin isn’t always easy to do, but Chelsea Peretti works it. The shoulder capping detail and additional color from the clutch equal a couple of prayer hands emojis.

Taraji P HensonTaraji P. Henson took home Best Drama Actress and while I am only 5 episodes into Empire, I am obsessed with all things Cookie. Also with Henson’s purple lip color.

Gina RodriguezMulti-textured is what I need for this much sheer to work and the bodice detail on Gina Rodriguez’s Reem Acra Couture is stunning.

Ivonne CollIt must run in the Jane the Virgin family as here is Ivonne Coll also looking super classy in a black gown.

Carrie BrownsteinPolka dot halter dress hits my sweet spot, but it is Carrie Brownstein’s gold tipped heels and red lipstick which I can’t get enough of.

Judith LightJudith Light, killing it as always.

Carrie CoonNo Best Supporting Actress for Carrie Coon (went to the equally deserving Lorraine Toussaint for OITNB); however she looks fantastic in burgundy.

Yvonne StrahovskiThere’s not much to Yvonne Strahovski column of cerulean blue, but this color is stunning on her and I am so ready to see her in wearing 60s attire in The Astronauts Wives Club.

Holly TaylorThe Americans won Best Drama (!) and Holly Taylor’s red rose infused Don O’Neill gown avoids leaning towards the overwhelming side thanks to the subtle cut outs.

Clea DuvallClea DuVall closes this red carpet (or rather blue carpet) in a green blazer and while this tips towards the too casual end of the scale this wins me over for lady suit and every 90s teen movie reasons.

To watch the acceptance speeches from the 5th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards head here.

Fox All-Star Party Red Carpet – Jumpsuits, Playsuits and Gold Blazers

19 Jan

January continues to be red carpet heavy and we’re starting the week with several super stylish looks from the Fox All-Star party, some of which feed into some of my clothing maybe attempts of 2015.

Keri RussellKeri Russell does the black jumpsuit thing and I think my jumpsuit obsession can be traced back to this Keri Russell outfit. This is a really great look on her and she makes it seem so effortless.

Becki NewtonPlaysuits are also on the hmm, maybe list – the bare legs factor makes me lean more towards jump – and Becki Newton is wearing the slightly longer and less bum skimming version of the alphabet Mary Katrantzou romper that Taylor Swift wore to the VMAs. In contrast with the magic eye picture like print (which I could never do) the nude pumps with red tips are the ideal shoe for this outfit.

Mindy KalingMindy Kaling shows off her new ombre locks and a sparkly twist on the menswear trend with a stunning gold Smythe blazer and stripe The Kooples blouse.

Tamara TaylorRocking cropped pants and A+ red lip color is Bones’ Tamara Taylor.

Hannah SimoneThere were some dresses on display with Hannah Simone going a little matchy matchy in a mint summer frock with a silhouette her New Girl co-star tends to wear.

Judy GreerThis has a hint of business wear and I guess this is a work function for Judy Greer. It manages to avoid an all office vibe thanks to the splash of yellow and Greer is another red lipstick queen at this party.

Best of New York Comic-Con 2014 Style

14 Oct

New York Comic-Con took place over the weekend and the types of shows it attracted went beyond the usual sci-fi and fantasy offerings that you might expect from this kind of event. So while Netflix took the opportunity to show off photos and footage from Daredevil you could also catch up with the Broad City ladies and the spies from The Americans. While not on the same scale as SDCC, there is still plenty for us to pour over including the aforementioned Daredevil debut (alas the footage was for attendants only).

Comic-Con attire tends to straddle cute/casual/relaxed and the dress code is neither one specific thing nor another. Even a jumpsuit makes the style hit list.

Charlie CoxLet’s start with Daredevil and Charlie Cox will be taking on the Matt Murdock mantle on Netflix (no release date yet); here he is working the super smile, beard and a denim shirt. The reddish toned hair is all part of the Matt Murdock look and Cox landing this lead role has me very excited about this project. Plus his time on Boardwalk Empire showed he was capable of playing both the fearsome and romantic side. If only he could use the Owen Irish accent on this show.

DaredevilAnd this the first still of Cox all lawyer suited up as Matt Murdock. This is some pretty damn good tailoring and he is wearing it well, along with signature red tinted specs that have a hint of John Lennon.

Deborah Ann WollSwapping Bon Temps for Hell’s Kitchen is Deborah Ann Woll; I am thrilled to see her score something like this after True Blood and I hope she gets to be more than just a love interest. A simple chic cornflower blue dress and the slightly different toned blue sandals avoid matchy matchy status.

The AmericansThe Americans cast and showrunners didn’t reveal much of anything about the next season (which starts shooting this week), but they did wear matching ‘Commie Con’ t-shirts (Matthew Rhys’ idea) compete with the ‘C’ as a hammer and sickle. Both Keri Russell and Annet Mahendru jazzed their looks up; Russell staying all black with a leather mini, blazer and stilettos and Mahendru rocking boots and the lip embellished Alice + Olivia skirt (also worn by Jamie Chung at NYFW).

Keri Russell and Matthew RhysBonus Americans panel shot with a closer look at the bespoke tees. And because they are adorable.

Abbi and Ilana! Another occasion where Abbi is my style twin (I have a very similar French Connection dress) and Ilana is my style hero in a shirt that’s making me think of a Care Bears color palette. Thankfully there is “Hack into Broad City” to tide us over until January when Broad City returns.

Aisha Tyler NYCCA jumpsuit I like is rare, but Aisha Tyler’s blue slouched drawstring number is giving me all the positive feelings. Pockets plus red shoes and a bold lip color all add up to a very good outfit and strong style week for Tyler.

Judy GreerTyler’s Archer co-star Judy Greer has also opted for crimson footwear and the all-black button down shirt and suit look is working, in part thanks to this splash of color. This also reminds me that I still need to read Greer’s I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star.

Katie AseltonGoing for monochrome is The League’s Katie Aselton in a simple chic black cropped sweater and a white skirt. This would come with a no drinking or eating warning due to spilling reasons.

Lyndie GreenwoodConfession – I have a bit of an eyebrow obsession and it’s always the first thing I notice about someone’s face (a timely essay from the Hairpin regarding eyebrows) and Sleepy Hollow’s Lyndie Greenwood has excellent eyebrow game and it is very evident here (this is for excellent shape and eyebrow expression usage). Peter Pan collar shirt and side braid completes this cute Comic-Con ensemble.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

22 Aug

Emmy weekend is here! Or rather Emmy Monday is a few days away in a slightly different month/day switch (blame football/VMA’s). “Out of the Box” is kicking things off early with an Emmy themed edition and the best looks on display at part one of the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys, which dished out a whole host of awards such as costuming and guest actors. The red carpet featured the Orange is the New Black nominated trio and I’m sure there will be more from this cast next week as the show is nominated along with Taylor Schilling and Kate Mulgrew.

Uzo AdubaUzo Aduba took home the award for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on OITNB beating out co-stars Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne. Aduba opted for a simple and super chic white Costume National V-neck frock and later accessorized it with a gold statue.

Natasha LyonneMonochrome was big on the Emmy red carpet in 2013 and Natasha Lyonne continues this trend by draping a white blazer over a black Calvin Klein dress. Glitzing the whole look up with vintage Cartier bracelets and a pendant necklace; this is the perfect balance of red carpet nonchalance with sophistication.

Laverne CoxContinuing the OITNB role call and it is Laverne Cox looking stunning in a sparkly strapless midnight-blue Donna Karan gown. Adding extra shimmer with a Marchesa gem-encrusted clutch, plus Neil Lane and Paul Morelli jewelry completes Cox’s red carpet win (sadly all three OITNB ladies couldn’t share the actual award).

Carrie+Brownstein+Arrivals+Creative+Arts+Emmy+0DW1tl6Ie0RlDitching the more traditional longer gown for a short Valentino frock is Portlandia’s Carrie Brownstein (here with co-star Fred Armisen) and I love it. The intricate multicolored feathers and black beading detail elevate this from just being another LBD; pairing it with a Jimmy Choo hot pink ‘Candy’ clutch is the extra pop of color this look needs. This is the dress I would wear if money wasn’t a factor.

Judy GreerEveryone’s favorite rom-com best friend Judy Greer in a Reed Krakoff cocktail dress with an enticing geometric bodice; it is both super flattering and a playful twist on the usual black red carpet attire.
