Coats, Cardigans, Boots and Knitwear from Sundance 2017

23 Jan

This time of year is great for someone who writes about red carpet fashion because a) there is so much and b) it is quite varied. There’s the glamour of award season, panel fashion at TCA and then there’s the Sundance Film Festival. TCA and Sundance are the closest to my personal style as many of the outfits worn are things I could see in my own closet; well I’d probably have a cheaper version.

Sundance also happens to take place in a location where it is cold and this also mirrors my current local as I’m pretty much head to toe in knits right now. It also feels very different to award season and at Sundance the clothes while most likely carefully chosen have a more carefree thrown together vibe and also consist of the most amazing coats. An instant win for me.

So here is the best of Sundance so far. Expect more later in the week.jessica-williams-and-noel-wellsAt the IMDb studio while promoting The Incredible Jessica James, TV Ate My Wardrobe faves Jessica Williams and Noël Wells give great boots, patterns and beanies. An early indication of what you can expect from this style post.

On Saturday as Women’s Marches were held in the U.S. and across the world Jessica Williams gave a powerful speech at Sundance telling the crowd “I grew up thinking that the civil rights movement already happened, that we already fought. But this election was a wakeup call … We have to fight, and we cannot slack.” aubrey-plazaNow for the long coats portion and outerwear is truly my clothing weakness.

Also this is an instant way to spruce up a pretty standard outfit as demonstrated by Aubrey Plaza at the Iris Goes West premiere.jenny-slateJenny Slate goes super classic at the Landline premiere with her outerwear choice, which thankfully distracts from denim fringe. carey-mulliganMuch to my delight Carey Mulligan is back with the very well received Mudbound. Here she is giving great coat, sweater and lipstick (also to my delight).rooney-maraRooney Mara’s nearly floor skimming olive green number has a bit of a military vibe and pairing it with an all-black look at the premiere of A Ghost Story works like a Rooney Mara charm. As does her slightly severe dark brows and lip color choice.cynthy-wuMy strong cape feelings are well documented on this site and the one I have in my own closet was bought after I broke my wrist and my cast covered arm wouldn’t fit in my winter coat sleeve. Best purchase. Cynthy Wu’s Chloé cape take on the Before I Fall red carpet is very cute and classic paired with a white sweater and black jeans.alison-brie-and-dave-francoAlison Brie’s sporting a fabulous shorter hair style at the IMDb studio while promoting The Little Hours and the dungarees/sweater is pretty much a staple go to casual look for me right now. And fiance Dave Franco wears a T-Rex sweater from the Coach collection I have been coveting for a long, long time. alison-brieAlso while promoting The Little Hours both Alison Brie and Kate Micucci deliver on my other favorite trend; sweaters with stripes. Micucci’s super colorful number is particularly delightful.emily-browningIt is not all coats, knits and boots and as Emily Browning shows at the Golden Exits premiere in a patterned dress which is an ideal day/night look.chloe-sevingyAlso at the same premiere is Chloë Sevigny in a print that wouldn’t look out of place in that one season (*sob*) of Good Girls Revolt paired with shoes that look like the ones I wore to high school in the mid ’90s. Also black tights forever.jon-hammHot dudes in chunky cardigans; the Jon Hamm edition.nick-offermanClosing with Nick Offerman in a knitted pink pussy hat. He wears it well.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

18 Mar

PaleyFest, SXSW and new magazine covers are all on this week’s “Out of the Box” menu and these events are the kind that bring out the best of the casual/fancy in-between zone, which post-award season is my favorite kind of dress code. Melissa BenoistAt the Supergirl PaleyFest panel Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist pairs a fantastic hypnotic skirt with a classic black turtleneck and I am so here for this level of fun. And she seems charming as hell to boot (even if I have fallen behind on this show – a mantra I could stitch on a cushion right now #PeakTV).Tracee Ellis RossAnother case of a super fun ensemble for PaleyFest and Tracee Ellis Ross combines two of my favorite things – sequins and stripes – at the Black-ish panel. The look on her face and pose says it all really. This is how an outfit should make you feel.Gillian Jacobs, Katie Micucci, Tami SagherAt the Don’t Think Twice SXSW screening floral and colorful geometric prints ruled supreme. Gillian Jacobs high neck sleeveless dress is mesmerizing and as with Mindy Kaling’s Mindy Project costume sneak peek Kate Micucci is making a strong case for floral rompers. Writer Tami Sagher also looks great and I am so ready for spring frocks.Zoe KazanBows and ascots were all over the recent runway shows and at the My Blind Brother screening Zoe Kazan’s long sleeve dress combines several box tickers; Peter Pan collar, floral and an ascot bow. Kazan has appeared a lot on TV Ate My Wardrobe recently and her insight regarding these events is why she is one of my favorite people I follow on Twitter including her reaction to the kinds of questions asked after this particular screening.

Yes this column is all about the ‘looks of the week,’ but I also get why it is important to ask questions about the film in question and not just dress details. And I definitely want to know about technical aspects, particularly all things costume (as anyone who visits this site will be aware). Jenny SlateMore spring foliage and while I’m not fully on board with sleeve cutouts, Jenny Slate is working this style at the My Blind Brother screening. Post SXSW Slate has gone on a roadtrip with Zoe Kazan and she has been documenting this very fun looking adventure on Instagram.Abbi and IlanaEntertainment Weekly hosted a party at the Spotify House celebrating Mr Robot at SXSW and quite a few of our faves showed up including Abbi Jacobson feeding my leather jacket and pleated skirt craving with Ilana Glazer hitting the t-neck points. This is more casual than the SXSW premiere events and style wise it is similar to the Sundance Film Festival, but switching out knitwear for denim short shorts. Tatiana MaslanyThis is cute and casual from Tatiana Maslany and perfect for hanging out on our future BFF dates. I am also impressed that even with the MANY hairstyles we have seen her rocking that her actual hair is different from every clone version. This is somewhere between Sarah and Helena’s huge blonde mass of curls.Alia Shawkat and Rami MalekTatiana Maslany’s boyfriend Tom Cullen captured the perfect “they look just like sisters’ shot of Maslany with Ilana Glazer and Alia Shawkat at the EW Mr Robot SXSW party and Shawkat poses with man of the hour and Mr Robot star Rami Malek. THRI love the annual Hollywood Reporter ‘Stylist and Stars’ issue and list especially as it comes so soon after a stylists busiest season. Rami Malek is wearing that stunning purple Calvin Klein suit he wore to the Independent Spirit Awards with Ilaria Urbinati and we gave her a shout out at the time because her work with Malek has been incredible.

Celebrating the people who give us plenty to write about when it comes to red carpet style is important and Leesa Evans (who is also a costume designer and has worked on a whole lot of Apatow produced movies such as Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck) appears with Amy Schumer, Jeff K. Kim alongside Michael B. Jordan (who always crushes any suit he is given) and another TV Ate My Wardrobe regular Brie Larson with Cristina Ehrlich. So yes let’s give a whole lot of love to the stylists.Kerry Washington ElleIt is rare to see a sweatshirt on the cover of a fashion magazine and awkward pulling it down aside, this cover is really great and Kerry Washington is always someone I am happy to see showcased in this manner. Washington discusses her new HBO movie Confirmation as well as the changing TV and film landscape. She talks about feeling invisible in her career pre-Scandal and that she’s had a conversation with Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson regarding this  and how “Television changed the game. Coming into people’s houses on a weekly basis is just a different kind of relationship to the public.” The issue is available to buy on both physical and digital newsstands now.
