Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

1 Jun

A very quiet week on Instagram on the TV work front because of Memorial Day weekend. This also means there have been plenty of celebs at the beach/hanging in the sunshine photos splashed across Insta of which we have a couple, but the majority of this week is dedicated to co-star hangouts and cute outfits.

 

Norman Reedus went to see Eclipsed and this ticks all my supporting a co-star in their other endeavors boxes. Plus a whole lot of patterned outfit delights.

 

Continuing with this theme and a much more loving/supportive version of this relationship than the one we saw on Orange is the New Black.

 

More from the OITNB ladies and they’re celebrating Laverne Cox’s birthday, which also ticks those co-stars who hang out boxes. Plus it is just over two weeks until OITNB returns (Friday, June 17).

 

So this is not from this week, but as I just caught up with iZombie I have some new Insta accounts to peruse and this is just too wonderful not to include. Robert Buckley in glasses is a really good look.

Hot mess. Ready for @lstdbristol

Maisie Williams is giving me so many flashbacks to my first festival going summer way back when as the 90s continues to dominate. Whenever I see anyone with star earrings like this it makes me regret my non-pierced lobes.

 

Keeping with the 90s and Game of Thrones trend with Emilia Clarke getting particularly giddy on The Graham Norton Show.

When I see Goldie Hawn in swimwear all I can think of is Overboard as no one does swimwear quite like Goldie in this movie.

Best of the 2015 Met Gala – Part 2

5 May

This year the Met Gala is celebrating the Costume Institute’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition which opens this week. It is a theme that could be either misinterpreted or rather take a big chunk of cultural appropriation and while some went very close to the line as is often the case with the Met Gala the theme was only hinted at – remember how very un-punk a lot of attendees were last year?

Here is Part 2 of our ‘Best of’ rundown (head here for Part 1) and while a lot of these dresses could work on any fancy pants red carpet event there are still a couple of ensembles which embrace the Met Gala costume dream.

RihannaKicking off the second part with the most dramatic entrance of the night and Rihanna achieves regal cape gown perfection in yellow Guo Pei – moving beyond the ‘inspired by Chinese heritage by wearing something by a Chinese designer – and the wide staircase shot shows off this incredible moment.

Allison WilliamsWhen I first saw Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture I was struck by how it was so Allison Williams and yet at the same time it moves away from her wheelhouse. This might be her best red carpet look to date and in a sea of scarlet frocks it is one which really stands out.

Rose ByrneRose Byrne wears one of the most interesting looks of the night in leather custom Calvin Klein collection. While once again I can’t see a whole lot of the theme in this; the circular cut outs and overall detail is spectacular.

Amal ClooneyAnother gown which explores the theme through texture with a military inspiration in the design of Amal Clooney’s Maison Margiela bodice. Mixing this with a layered skirt and one which evokes flowers adds to the outstanding quality of this dress.

Anne HathawayThere were a whole lot of Star Wars references being thrown about when Anne Hathaway arrived, but for me this looks a whole lot like something I wore in 1998 (albeit mine was a silver sleeveless hoodie which I adored). Whatever this Ralph Lauren hooded dress makes you think of, it is clear that Anne Hathaway is working it.

Kate HudsonMore gold and Kate Hudson in Michael Kors is doing her ‘Kate Hudson looks very good on the red carpet’ thing.

Jessica ChastainWoah! Jessica Chastain goes for gold bombshell in Givenchy with super retro curls and bonus red lipstick points. This looks like something Amy Adams might have worn during the American Hustle awards period, which is to say it is smoking hot.

Brie LarsonSo much sparkly beaded detail on Brie Larson’s Dolce & Gabana frock which is one of the more on theme looks of the night. Also very much feeling her gold headband and red lip color.

Taraji P HensonI finally stared Empire (so late to this party I know) and Taraji P. Henson is already giving me so much life as Cookie. Here is Henson in beaded Balenciaga adding to the many floral gowns on offer and she looks pretty damn great.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonDiane Kruger once again shows why she is a magical fashion unicorn as her Chanel Couture ensemble really shouldn’t work and yet she still looks incredible. Joshua Jackson looks rather spiffy and hey here’s the best dressed couple crown.

Maggie GyllenhaalAnother monochrome beauty and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Roland Mouret also has a dash of color to add to the unusual bodice and belting. It’s a dress I could see Nessa Stein from The Honourable Woman wearing.

Best of the 2014 Oscar Red Carpet

3 Mar

So after nearly 7 hours of red carpet and the actual award show combined (yikes, that is a VERY long time and no wonder my snacks ran out) we have chosen our favorite red carpet looks. While the Film Independent Spirit Awards were awash with color and pattern, the Oscars were more on the muted side with dark gowns and a whole lot of nude metallics on display. Here are our highlights of the red carpet and a couple of bonus shots from the show.

Lupita Nyong'o red carpetStarting with Lupita Nyong’o as she has been the star of this award season and this gorgeous pale blue Prada gown is the perfect dress for the Oscar winner. Nyong’o’s speech was touching and from what I could tell everyone on my Twitter feed had a very blurry screen during this moment. The one divisive aspect was the headband and for the record I am pro this accessory.

Lupita Nyong'o OscarsHere’s an extra shot as it looks stunning in movement and Nyong’o helped design this gown; I would totally want something I could swish like this if given the opportunity.

Kate HudsonNow this is how you do old Hollywood glamour and Kate Hudson’s Atelier Versace gown is oozing with style. The semi-cape is giving me so much life (and it’s a shame she ditched it when she presented) as are the slightly boxy shoulders. The combination of the delicate beading and deep plunge give it that extra oomph; I can totally understand why Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were beaming when she stepped out on stage.

Amy AdamsI saw some refer to this as boring, but I really like that Amy Adams chosen something as simple and sophisticated as this navy Gucci Première frock. It’s tuxedo inspired and the lapels are such a great detail; it’s the opposite of the plunging American Hustle type gowns we saw earlier in this awards cycle and it’s wonderful.

Karen OO, Karen O you look incredible in black Camilla Stærk. Another plunging neckline and the broach really set it off, plus this is also a little capey so you know I love it. The gold and black geometric clutch adds the right amount of glitz to this ensemble.

Karen O performanceBonus Karen O! Performing “The Moon Song” with Ezra Koenig with heels placed to the side, they made this song feel really intimate in a venue that large. The red gown is flowy and spectacular and I love that Koenig’s socks match Karen O’s dress. Excuse me while I go listen to this song on repeat.

Olivia Wilde and Jason SudekisBold statement ahoy – sorry Brad and Angelina (because I’m sure they will be reading), but here is my best dressed couple of the evening. Wilde is wearing a black Valentino column dress with a mock turtleneck and the white open back gives it that something extra. It’s all about monochrome with her accessories and she looks incredible. By accessories I mean her clutch and jewelry, not her baby bump as E! decided this was part of the accessory discussion. Jason Sudeikis is snazzy in Prada and I’m totally digging the beard.

Emma WatsonEmma Watson is shimmering in metallic Vera Wang, going for a pewter hue, rather than all the many nude sparkly affairs that were on trend last night (but none that I really liked). The slight mermaid kick of the skirt and the lighter top turn what could have been a nothing dress into something special. As does the dramatic dark lipstick which I’m coveting quite hard.

Emma Watson and JGL

And because I’m sure this pairing sparked new real life shippers here is Emma Watson presenting with the always dapper Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You’re welcome.
