Out of the Box: Look of the Week

15 Sep

After I talked up last week’s bumper “Out of the Box” this one is slightly longer and all the events, they keep on coming; TIFF, NYFW and the Creative Arts Emmys. We have a fun mix of fancy red carpet, daytime attire and even an airport look.

Plus, The X-Files celebrated its 24th anniversary and I wrote about Dana Scully’s influence on TV work wardrobes for The ObserverYou should know by now how I feel about Tatiana Maslany’s style—strongly positive—and she gives great casual and fancy. At the Stronger TIFF premiere, this J. Mendel is of course the latter and the color/ruffles are fantastic. As is Maslany’s dark lipstick choice.

And as I mentioned on Twitter the other day, I am so excited to see her post-Orphan Black career and that her extraordinary talent will reach a wider audience. Mohair sweaters are a quiet obsession of mine and everything about Elisabeth Moss in Rochas, at a screening for The Square is ’50s inspired perfection.

Another fabulous pick from super stylist Karla Welch and I cannot wait to see what Moss will be wearing at the Emmys on Sunday.

Even if Brie Larson’s directorial debut wasn’t called Unicorn Store, I would applaud her airport ensemble—fluffy whimsical sandals aside—and both Larson and fiancé Alex Greenwald look cool af.

A post shared by Maggie Gyllenhaal (@mgyllenhaal) on

The Vampire’s Wife is a brand that has been doing very good things of late and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s silver frock continues this trend. Maggie has been crushing it during this press tour for The Deuce.

Also, Maggie addressed one of the important issues of our time (and you get to see how great the sleeves are in this Watch What Happens Live clip).At the New York mother! premiere before this happened with a T-shirt swap, there was a whole lot of couples coordinating between Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. Also on the highly anticipated Emmy red carpet list.
The prelude to the main event and the Creative Arts Emmys—for costume wins head here—delivered with Niecy Nash looking divine in a figure hugging and puffed sleeve scarlet dream.Also in red and giving me so much life is Angela Bassett in Romona Keveza. I’m sad she didn’t win her guest actress in a comedy category for the amazing Thanksgiving episode of Master of None.Serving up super sexy drama in gold and black Mikael D is Laverne Cox. Currently fantasy casting a movie with Cox and Margot Robbie based on their red carpet looks.I was already enamored by Emily V. Gordon’s style and then I watched The Big Sick and fell further in love—the red brain sweater was based on something Emily wore. This is another great red carpet look in floral Self-Portrait and Kumail Namjiani scrubs up well in a midnight blue tux.Moving on to NYFW and it has been a very busy week/month/year for Elisabeth Moss. And another 50s-adjacent look at Kate Spade New York. A brand I very much enjoy (and can almost afford).Florals continue to dominate and at the Refinery29 29Rooms: Turn It Into Art event, Issa Rae and Gabby Sidibe looks like they are having a blast.

Insecure wrapped up its second season with a very strong finale and it has been another season full of great costuming.Obligatory “I still miss The Carrie Diaries” mention because here is Austin Butler—wearing a Radiohead tee—at Jeremy Scott with girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens. Two mohair sweaters in one week! Skai Jackson pairs hers with a burgundy pleated skirt and this outfit at Libertine is pretty much an ideal fall ensemble. Jackson is only 15 and definitely way cooler than me.The Outlander premiere was an emotional watch for me, but I am very glad to have it back and switching out ’50s Boston maternity style for a very cool and colorful look at Delpozo is Caitriona Balfe. Balfe has been having a very good NYFW.Chunky ankle/calf boots are here to stay it would seem and I am more than fine with this dip back to the ’90s trend as previously seen from Louis Vuitton last year. Michelle Monaghan is at Oscar de la Renta and I love the edged up glam of this look.Obligatory “I still miss Selfie” mention and Karen Gillan’s super cute romper at Self-Portrait looks like something Eliza would wear. Plus, more ankle boots to covet.The Christian Siriano front row looked the most fun and I want to have a boozy lunch with all four of these women. And if Leslie Jones could lend me her cape then that would be a bonus.

I’m looking forward to seeing who will be wearing Siriano on Sunday. I’m all about the Emmys right now.In more great fabulous front row news; Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts in coordinating and yet contrasting florals at Michael Kors. Naomi Watts continues to be an Instagram fave.

We found a dock. WHERE YOU AT DAWSON? #wedontwanttowaitforourlivestobeover

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

It is no secret that I am a long time Michelle and Busy fan and I was very excited when Michelle popped up on Busy’s Insta last week. Even more so when they did a whole Dawson’s Creek thing a couple of days after. Which also included this amazing photo.

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.

Confusion or constipation?? @kyle_maclachlan #twinpeaks #comiccon #sdcc

A post shared by Naomi Watts (@naomiwatts) on

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 Jun

The pattern theme continues much to my delight and Look of the Week is awash once again with some bold ensembles. It’s summer so this makes total sense.

Plenty of premieres, more awards and July issues of magazines continue to wow. September, you have a lot to live up to.

For some sporty and sparkly chic check out style crush Tatiana Maslany and my article on the new (and wonderful) Netflix series GLOW.At the BET Awards Issa Rae is bold stripe delight in Balmain pairing a blazer with short shorts and sandals. Everything about this look is a dream and Rae tops it off with the perfect pink lipstick.And while we’re on the subject of Issa Rae, here is the season 2 promo poster for Insecure and the premiere date is less than a month away! Never has a poster made me want to go for a swim more than this. Excellent swimsuit choice too.The third week in a row for Zendaya as the Spider-Man: Homecoming promo tour continues. So far there has been a stunning Vogue cover, putting a bird on it and now mixing fun and sophistication in stripes and ruffled Altuzarra.

A velvet trench doesn’t really scream the month of June, but just know I am very much coveting Karen Gillan’s Self Portrait coat dress. This week’s florals come from Jenny Slate at the Despicable Me LA premiere in Alice McCall. The heavy print and fringe makes this dress feel a little rug-adjacent, but the slightly sheer element gives it a much lighter look. Great gold sandals too.At the Younger season 4 premiere, Sutton Foster looks like she came straight from rom-com set in the ’80s in polka dot Saloni. This is of course a compliment of the highest order.In ‘July gives great cover’ news; bow down to Serena Williams and Vanity Fair. After letting my subscription lapse a few months ago, VF is making a great play to get me to sign back up again with two excellent cover stories in a row. 

The interview goes into detail about how Serena and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian got together and what Serena did when she found out she was pregnant just before the Australian Open kicked off. A tournament she won without dropping a single set. It is a celebration of all things Serena and I cannot wait to pick up this magazine. In just over two weeks, Game of Thrones returns so get ready for TV talk to be dominated by this juggernaut. First up a super fun Time cover story and design that mixes religious iconography with Pop Art colors and Old Hollywood; you can read all about photographer Miles Aldridge’s concept here. There’s also a little Twin Peaks and my dream to now have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau playing the prime suspect in an Agatha Christie adaptation.

Sophie Turner in Gucci (currently crushing it as the brand of the moment) is my favorite of the portraits in a shot that looks like a fucked up and fashionable fairy tale.

Also over at Vanity Fair they picked out two important details from the piece and the first one is something I cannot wait to see in the new season.Preacher is back and the first two episodes are super fun. Plus Tulip is once again a major TV style crush mixing feminine summer dresses with edgy leather. Ruth Negga has been a regular presence here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and her cover/editorial for Town & Country is another style hit including the above dreamy shot of Negga in Fendi. In the piece Negga talks about how much she loves books and her favorite show growing up was My So-Called Life.

As if I needed another reason to think we could be besties, on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Negga talked about how much she loves Grease 2, which is also my favorite of the Grease movies. So much so that I even managed to slip a reference to it in this Wonder Woman essay I wrote for Elle.

All my fave actresses talk about Grease 2 on The Tonight Show.

2016 Comic-Con Fashion Round-Up: Panels, Parties and Photocalls

25 Jul

Comic-Con is always a style favorite because there is such a variety of looks across the various appearances from onstage to parties and this year is no different.

Out of the Box” covered the start of the 2016 convention and now we have the best looks from the rest of the weekend.Marvel ladiesThe Marvel casting department continue to crush it and this group shot from Saturday after the Brie Larson is Captain Marvel reveal is giving me so many feelings. This is a whole lot of talented women and I suddenly no longer have superhero movie fatigue (the new Wonder Woman trailer also helped).

Plus there is a lot of different style choices going on here and this means the focus is spread throughout; green in various shades is a the dominant color choice and there is a good mix of pants and frocks in varying lengths. Basically, the list of things I love about this photo is long.Lupita Nyong'oLet’s break down some of the individual looks from the group shot above.

First up Lupita Nyong’o wearing Givenchy Resort 2017 (instant Beyoncé playing in my head) striking the balance between casual and fancy in a frock which could do day or evening in equal measure. Tilda and BrieA green crushed velvet suit is not an easy ensemble to pull off, but for Tilda Swinton this is very much in her sartorial wheelhouse and once again she is adding even more color with a pop of pink lipstick. Also going for the pants/green approach or rather pants adjacent is Brie Larson in a Gabriela Hearst Resort 2017 jumpsuit; giving of a 1970s superhero vibe, which I am more than here for.Danai Gurira Comic ConCaptain Marvel wasn’t the only Marvel casting news and Danai Gurira joining Black Panther as Okoye got me all in a fluster and not just because of how incredible the promo tour for this movie will be. Gurira’s gone for a knockout dress for this announcement and I wouldn’t expect any less from a TV Ate My Wardrobe fave.Danai GuriraDouble Danai Gurira and opting for simple chic at the Walking Dead panel (#Richonne4EVA) with a dreamy dress choice (except for those of us with a tendency to spill).Michael B JordanT-Rex sweater is an instant hit – still coveting this Coach one – and Michael B. Jordan doesn’t change out of his Black Panther panel ensemble for the Entertainment Weekly panel because he is already looking pretty damn good. Jamie AlexanderOn the dressier end at this party is Jamie Alexander and I cannot resist something this sparkly. Bonus lipstick points too.Nathalie EmmanuelMore cute outfit with a leather skirt edge delights (as previously seen on Tatiana Maslany and various other attendees) and Nathalie Emmanuel ticks all the casual cool Comic-Con boxes while on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly radio broadcast. Tatiana MaslanyTatiana Maslany’s got sparkly shoes and a plaid playsuit on while hanging out on the IMDb yacht (she also wore this at the EW “Women Who Kick Ass” panel) and she continues her every day style reignTatiana Maslany Comic ConDouble Maslany because clones and also I really like this second outfit (plus I have those sneakers!). Going the Michael B. Jordan chilled approach at the EW bash in skinny jeans, a varsity jacket and a funky blouse. A vibe I always get from Maslany at these events is she looks like she is there to have a good time and outfit restriction never factors in.

Karen Gillan’s Winning Look at the 2015 Jameson Empire Awards

30 Mar

Still mourning the loss of Selfie and everything it was/could’ve been but taking a break from Sia karaoke sadness with Karen Gillan in a fabulous shimmery Louis Vuitton dress at the 2015 Jameson Empire Awards. Gillan took home the prize for Best Female Newcomer for her performances in Oculus and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Karen GillanFuturistic mod springs to mind and there’s a whole Jetsons 60s vibe going on. Now the dress is a big style hit and Karen Gillan’s red carpet record is excellent as she doesn’t always stick to what is safe.

Karen Gillan bootsSo what to make of the black boots? They add an edginess to the look and also falls into the whole mod element (picturing Sally Draper in her white go go boots), but an ankle bootie is what I’m leaning towards as an alternate. When Michelle Williams wore a very similar looking Louis Vuitton frock to the Met Gala it was criticized for being a bit too casual for the event; she paired it with black pumps and they looked fine but were nothing special. Like Williams, Gillan’s pixie cut was stunning and the wavy short bob is also doing wonders. Can someone find her a comedy that doesn’t get cut short before its time?

With the lights like this it looks like karaoke should be on the menu really:

Karen Gillan EmpireBonus Empire Awards red carpet yes with Hayley Atwell in a classic black dress and another TV plea to renew Agent Carter.

Hayley AtwellMuch appreciated and thanks in advance.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 Mar

Now award season is over (until the summer when the TV awards kick in) we’ve got a mixture of magazine covers, fashion campaigns and movie premieres for this week’s style highs. Michelle WilliamsMy Michelle Williams style crush goes way back and the April UK Elle cover is a fashion delight. Sometimes actress fashion house pairings don’t quite mesh from print ads to the red carpet (*cough Jennifer Lawrence/Christian Dior cough*), but Michelle Williams and Louis Vuitton has worked on every level. This is twee without being too cutesy using leather and lace; the orange is spectacular and it is just a fun cover. With Williams, editorials often lean on fragility with a hint sadness, sometimes a wisp of whimsy and I am glad this moves beyond that.

Gummer sisters and other storiesMamie and Grace Gummer join their model sister Louisa in the new & Other Stories campaign and this Co-Lab collection by Clare Vivier is a mixture of French chic with Cali cool. The range of bags, cropped denim and silk shirts on display here is making me clamor for spring and I’m already adding items to my wish list such as this leather shoulder bag Gillian Jacobs showed off on Instagram and the red one Louisa carries in the shot above.

Mamie GummerOne more shot from the new & Other Stories campaign and while I am not entirely sold on the quasi-fanny pack leather belted bag, Mamie Gummer’s slight 70s flare and shirt styling is giving me all the Jamie Lee Curtis in the first Halloween feels. The jeans aren’t as high in the waist and the shirt is a slightly different color, but it still has the same effortless quality.

Lily James and Richard Madden CinderellaLily James goes full Disney princess in Elie Saab at the premiere of Cinderella, which is surely the ideal time to embrace ethereal pretty. Ol’ King of the North (or that should read former *sob*) Richard Madden is playing his part well and if only he had been allowed to be a beardy Prince Charming.

Karen GillanRemember when Henry lent Eliza his coat on Selfie and she fashioned it into a super sexy funky outfit? Karen Gillan’s Burberry trench look is giving me a whole bunch of Selfie feels at the LA Cinderella premiere. I am still in mourning for this charming, funny and cancelled too soon delight; this outfit only adds to the Eliza and Henry sadness while looking cool at the same time. Now might be the ideal moment to pour one out to Selfie while singing along to the most heartbreaking version of “Chandelier.”

Best of TV Costuming 2014: Best of the Rest – From Statement Necklaces to Wedding Gowns

30 Dec

Welcome to TV Ate My Wardrobe’s “Best of 2014″ 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 that we want in our own wardrobe to pieces that got everyone talking, we want to look at this year’s TV through the prism of costume.

So far the end of year “Best of” discussions have covered a lot of individual shows such as The AmericansHannibal and The Good Wife, along with certain trends such as leather jackets and now comes the quick-fire roundup of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s best of everything else such as accessories, special occasion gowns and even modes of transport. It is a chance to address some our favorite shows and looks of 2014.

Best Statement Necklace Wearer

The Good Wife 6.02 DianeThere can only be one winner of this and The Good Wife’s Diane Lockhart wears chain necklaces like no other. She also has a very fine collection of antique broaches/pins and a stare that can stop you dead in your tracks.

Best Fancy Hat 

Hannibal - Season 2Freddie Lounds take on court attire was even better than Hannibal checking out his own butt as he got ready for Will’s trial. This hat reads more day at the races or wedding and isn’t really court appropriate unless she is starring in a remake of His Girl Friday.

Best Casual Hat 

IMG_0770I never thought I would pick a trucker hat to appear on a ‘best of’ but Orphan Black managed to turn one into a symbol of love as Helena shared her first dance and smooch with the adorable Jesse. This love token has been dropped and all she is left with is a beanie to stuff her hair into.

Best Sunglasses

You're the WorstI can’t believe this is the first time I am talking about You’re the Worst on TV Ate My Wardrobe and Gretchen’s face in the shot above sums up how ridiculous that is. Plus her Ray-Ban Opal Yellow Wayfarers are super awesome and perfect for all kinds of hungover sunny days.

Best Sweaters

Gina B99 Wolfie sweaterAnother slam dunk as Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Gina has excellent sweater game week in, week out including an excellent double wolfie turtleneck from the most recent episode. There might have been more competition if Robyn hadn’t mysteriously become a character who exists in the off screen wilderness on The Good Wife.

Best Tights

SelfieNobody does patterned tights quite like Selfie’s Eliza and now is also a good time to sadly bid adieu to yet another comedy show that was the perfect mix of funny, sweet and sharp. So long Eliza and Henry; you deserve more than this.

Best Bathrobes

IMG_1161Going from the sanitized hospital location with the stiff blue robes to something more decadent with quality hotel bathrobes and in Masters of Sex’s best episode this season “Fight” Bill and Virginia spent a rather sizable portion laying their souls bare while wearing this garment.

Best Late Night Drinking

HomelandOkay so this one isn’t about what a character is wearing, instead it is the manner in which this scene in the Homeland finale showcased the best of what has been a mostly very enjoyable season leaving behind the mess of almost all things Brody. There’s an initial awkwardness from Lockhart that turns into a moment of warmth thanks to a shared horrific experience and drinking whiskey from paper cups.

Best Mode of Transport Part 1

IMG_1160Lucy’s beautiful blue bike wouldn’t look out of place now as retro bicycles are on trend and it also symbolizes freedom for both Lucy – she doesn’t have to rely on a man for transport – and Thack as he experiences a non-drug induced pleasure when he takes it for a spin on The Knick.

Best Mode of Transport Part 2

The Comeback 2.08The Comeback has been a pleasure to experience even when watching through fingers or with constant Home Alone face and the season finale is just as exceptional. Valerie Cherish is my everything especially when she has to avoid a shit covered front yard and gets carried in her Emmy gown by a shirtless Brad Goreski and her publicist Billy.

Best Hoodie to Hide in

Broad City 1.08 drawstring hoodieThere is a lot to love about the costuming on Broad City and one of Abbi’s most practical pieces is this drawstring hoodie (as with April Ludgate’s mustard hoodie I am still on the hunt for it) which doubles as a Bevers blocker.

Best Dress for Time Travel

Otlander Claire blanketConfession – I still need to watch beyond episode 3 of Outlander and it is one of those shows that I just fell behind on. Claire’s 1940s simple white keyhole dress didn’t seem totally out of place for the 18th century time period she found herself in during the pilot and this allowed her to blend in as best she could without betraying the original post-World War II setting. I really need to catch up on this, don’t I?

Best Wedding Gown

Margaery GOTAnother wedding didn’t go so well (or it actually worked out better for the bride) on Game of Thrones, but that can’t take away from the exquisite beauty and detail of Margaery’s gown. The rose embellished train is stunning.

Best Business Wear 

BBC2 drama The Honourable WomanOn The Honourable Woman Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Nessa Stein has a wardrobe that contains endless billowy silk blouses and everything is super chic and well tailored. Pieces that stand out include the Roland Mouret leopard jacquard dress from the first episode and pretty much every item acts as some kind of armor between Nessa and the messiness of the world she is part of. Yep even those silk blouses represent both supreme business wear and a way to protect herself.

Best Pattern Clashing 

IMG_1014Mindy wins this one hands down.

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week – Best of 2014 Part 1

26 Dec

Time to look back at the many amazing outfits that have featured on “Out of the Box” and this year we are splitting it over two parts due to the high volume of incredible looks. There are going to be a variety of categories and a whole host of TV Ate My Wardrobe favorites.

Best Magazine Cover 

out 100 Samira WileyA lot of magazine covers have graced these pages this year but none took our breath away quite like Orange is the New Black’s Samira Wiley on the cover of the 20th anniversary issue of the Out100.

Best February NYFW Runway Watching 

Solange at MillyI love everything about this super bold color ensemble from Solange. Even that feathered bag.

Best Pleated  

Aubrey PlazaI wrote a whole thing the other day about how I had never worn leather aside from shoes and bags; while leather jackets are still super intimidating I’m pretty sure a pleated leather skirt would be in my wheelhouse. Aubrey Plaza does pattern and pleats well.

Best Red Lip Color

Keri RussellKeri Russell appeared in Brooklyn Magazine back in September and here she wears Urban Decay’s 24/7 lip liner “69,” which has become a red lip color staple in my makeup bag.

Best Summer TCA 

Diane Kruger TCAAt The Bridge TCA panel (*sob* that it didn’t get renewed) Diane Kruger stunned in this color block Roksanda frock. Super stylish and effortless chic from a TV Ate My Wardrobe staple.

Best High Waisted Shorts

Karen Gillan KimmelI’m still pretty heartbroken about Selfie’s premature end and instead of dwelling on that sadness; here is Karen Gillan on her way into Jimmy Kimmel Live! from October in a perfect sidewalk strutting ensemble.

Stay tuned for Part 2 next week.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

30 Oct

Welcome once again to Behind the Insta-Scenes! A new feature offering a roundup of the best behind the scenes photos posted on Instagram from a variety of TV show and personal accounts from the people who are on them. This includes anything from future episode sneak peeks, what’s airing this week, flashing back to the past and general on set (and sometimes off set) antics.

Amazing outfits, a returning show and on set affection are all included in this week’s round up of the best of Instagram.

Meeeowww @coltonlhaynes

A post shared by emilybett (@emilybett) on

Cat socks! Colton Haynes is giving good and appropriate mesmerized face to these sock beauties (as modeled by Felicity Smoak herself Emily Bett Rickards).

The dudes of Looking are making it hard to pick a side when it comes to the Patrick decision of Richie versus Kevin (okay Kevin already has a boyfriend, but it is still a hard choice). Here are Russell Tovey and Jonathan Groff being super adorable while filming season 2.

"Hey #Clonesbians, look who's baaaa-aaack…" – Graeme Manson #OrphanBlack #CloneClub

Kickin it Lahiri style in Issa and madewell pumps! #themindyproject

A post shared by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

More Mindy outfit delights on The Mindy Project and this patterned delight is by Issa. Not a real rooftop.

So this isn’t technically a TV set, nor is Taylor Swift necessarily a TV star (she did pop up on New Girl) but this week has been wall to wall Taylor thanks to the release of her new album 1989 (which I’ve been playing on repeat) and this Marco De Vincenzo pleated rainbow sparkly skirt is everything. Taylor’s is autumnal in tone and it is also available in purple hues.

A selfie for Selfie and this show has become one of my favorites from the new fall offerings; Karen Gillan is a big part of this. It is super charming and makes me laugh a bunch, but I fear the low ratings might make it go the way of the big cancellation disappointment from a show with a terrible name last season. I still miss you Trophy Wife.

Sorry darling, got hung up at work. #elementary

Welcome once again to Behind the Insta-Scenes! A new feature offering a roundup of the best behind the scenes photos posted on Instagram from a variety of TV show and personal accounts from the people who are on them. This includes anything from future episode sneak peeks, what’s airing this week, flashing back to the past and general on set (and sometimes off set) antics.

This week we have a range of shows and behind the scenes frolicking such as snack loving from the Orange is the New Black ladies, a double Thanksgiving celebration on New Girl and a contender for best Gina sweater on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Cookie deliveries on set. #❤️

A post shared by Samira Wiley (@whododatlikedat) on

First up is Samira Wiley in full OITNB Poussey grey sweatshirt goodness and a cookie with love.

@ohlittleasianone and I had some sugar after lunch. #orangefamily

A post shared by emmacat (@emmacat) on

A lot more snacks and possible sugar induced happiness from Emma Myles (Leanne) and Kimiko Glenn (Soso) also on the set of OITNB. It’s as if Trick-or-Treating has come early to Litchfield this year.

Canadian Thanksgiving was on Monday and Hannah Simone celebrated on the set of New Girl as they shot their American Thanksgiving episode. Digging the super 90s dress and cute Heidi braid on Zooey Deschanel.

Wolfie sweater! And from the same Risto collection as the one I suggested for Gina a couple of weeks ago.

Nicole Beharie isn’t out of the woods on the set of Sleepy Hollow and that dude in the tri-corner hat in the background suggests some time warping shenanigans are afoot.

Table read. Ep 407.

A post shared by Kerry Washington (@kerrywashington) on

Kerry Washington’s shot doesn’t reveal anything that’s going to happen in the episode of Scandal they are at the table read for, but this goofy selfie might please Fitz and Jake fans alike.

I watched the first three episodes of Selfie yesterday and in spite of that name it has the components to be a very fun show. Karen Gillan’s charm factor is a big reason why this it could really work, plus I did laugh a bunch which is kind of what you want from a sitcom. We’ll see, but at the moment I am sold on Selfie. And here is what appears to be a selfie of Gillan, so hey it’s easy to tie in the title with an Instagram post.
