Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

24 Jun

Midweek TV treat with a collection of some of the best Instagram posts including the Orange is the New Black cast returning to set for season 4, plenty more You’re the Worst shenanigans and saying goodbye to Orphan Black for another year.

 

Happy Ice Cream Truck Day! Raul Castillo and America Ferrera taking a break from filming their new Ricky Gervais Netflix series Special Correspondents. From this pairing alone, count me in.

 

Another super cute couple and the Orphan Black season 3 finale gave Helena several much needed victories including a brief hookup with her beau Jesse. They make a fetching couple even if Helena is wearing a mishmash of Alison’s clothes.

 

He wasn’t in the finale (I suspect there was some Game of Thrones filming overlap) but Michiel Huisman made sure he sent thanks to the Clone Club.

 

Silly string at a glance looks like a scratch filter to give a photo that old timey feel (even when it is pink) and Jussie Smollett celebrated his birthday with a large portion of the Empire cast.

Great things once again from the cast and crew of You’re the Worst and it has become the norm that I can’t pick just one photo. A season 2 premiere date would be lovely, please and thank-you.

I would always bet on Betty.

 

You might still be watching season 3 of Orange is the New Black but the cast are already back on set for season 4. Best news is Lea DeLaria has been bumped up to a regular and Boo’s friendship with Doggett is one of the strongest aspects of the current batch of episodes. Heartbreaking, touching and hilarious in equal amounts.

 

More OITNB S4 onset antics and this one features a whole lot of hair (I was also a big fan of the Flaca storyline in season 3).

 

And here are the ladies in costume for an appearance on Good Morning America; it is really jarring how different they look with their hair done for morning TV rather than in character.

 

What I’m inferring from this is Jenny Slate is going to be on the next season of Girls* and her hair looks all kinds of amazing. And that prop joint does seem a little on the large side, unless of course they are going for a Withnail & I ‘Camberwell Carrot‘ approach and then it might be a little too small.

*Turns out I had forgotten that Slate appeared in season 1 as Hannah’s frenemy, Tally Schifrin from college who we met at her book launch for “Leave Me Alone.” Hopefully she will be reprising this role and this non-remembrance also tell me that I need to rewatch season 1.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

22 May

The TV season might be coming to an end as many shows have aired their finales over the last few weeks, but there are plenty of red carpet events and screenings as Emmy chatter is only just beginning. One of the major events this week was of course the end of Mad Men (and you can read all my tear stained thoughts here) and another chance for the cast to show off their sartorial prowess. While we have already documented Mindy Kaling’s Cannes fashion parade there are a few more pretty frocks to show off.

Kiernan ShipkaKiernan Shipka has been a revelation in her performance as Sally Draper and I really can’t wait to see what she does next. She has also consistently been the best dressed cast member and she’s still only 15. Please Hollywood, treat her kindly. At the Film Independent screening of Mad Men she wore a very cute Valentino white ruffled frock which complements both her age and look.

Elisabeth MossAs with Peggy Olson, Elisabeth Moss has really upped her style game over the last few years and this is a simple and fun outfit. The metallic belting is an edgy touch and I love the splash of color with the orange peep-toe pumps, even if they don’t entirely go with the rest of the ensemble.

Amy PoehlerBack to Cannes and the Inside Out premiere with another metallic belted beauty; Amy Poehler sticks with Stella McCartney and it pays off.

Melanie LaurentThe Cannes red carpet photos have a habit of looking both overwhelming and incredibly romantic in a classic movie star way. This shot of Melanie Laurent falls in the latter camp and her super sparkly Zuhair Murad Couture beaded frock is adding to this effect.

Diane KrugerAnother Cannes stunner and TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite; Diane Kruger has gone for an ethereal Prada frock for the Maryland premiere. Here she is with co-star Matthias Schoenaerts who, in not shocking news scrubs up well for the red carpet (everyone should go see Far From the Madding Crowd which is very good for reasons that also include Schoenaerts).

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter SarsgaardMaggie Gyllenhaal is deservedly once again receiving praise and accolades for her portrayal of Nessa Stein in last year’s exceptional mini-series The Honourable Woman including at this week’s 40th Annual Gracie Awards. Wearing a super chic black Alexander McQueen gown with killer cuff detail and red lipstick to swoon over Gyllenhaal poses with husband Peter Sarsgaard.

This has been a week where actresses have been confirming how awful Hollywood can be with Gyllenhaal’s comments about how she is too old at 37 to play a love interest for a 55-year-old – Amy Schumer’s ‘Last Fuckable Day‘ sketch is far too real –  and Salma Hayek spoke at length about the many obstacles she has faced in this industry.

Chelsea PerettiIt’s not just Chelsea Peretti’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine character Gina that gets all the style love from us here and at the Webby Awards where Peretti won Outstanding Comedic Performance (for the Netflix special Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats) she wore a super hypnotic all the stripes Mason by Michelle Mason frock.

Rose ByrneKeeping things casual cool on the Red Nose Day red carpet is Rose Byrne. Those pants look like they could be satin and yet somehow she is making them work.

Kerry WashingtonAt the Disney International Upfronts Kerry Washington also goes for a relaxed funky outfit and what appears to be a sweater and skirt is actually an Alexander Lewis dress. The green shimmer from her Le Silla shoes goes wonders with the metallic stripes.

OITNBThis Orange is the New Black group photo at a For Your Consideration screening and Q & A this week is delightful for several reasons including 1) Jenji Kohan’s dress, 2) so many good outfits/range of styles and 3) as a reminder that the new season is less than a month away.
