Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 May

Reunions, reminders of how long ago a show left the air and plenty more behind the scenes action in this week’s TV Instagram selection.

 

Still feeling emotional about the end of Mad Men? Elisabeth Moss has you covered with this photo from her final day and it is fitting that her last scene is with Vincent Kartheiser after all their characters have been through together. This also gives me another reason to talk about how much I love Peggy’s costuming as this is a Top 3 ensemble.

 

Yes I love it when onscreen besties also hangout in real life, even more so when it is long after a show has ended and a Buffy reunion like this ticks all those boxes. Especially when they (accidentally) co-ordinate their denims.

12 years ago today the final episode of #buffythevampireslayer aired. I played Buffy's sister Dawn. I joined the show when I was 14, and spent the last 3 seasons bringing Dawn to life; under the guidance and direction of the brilliant Joss Whedon. I was honored to speak the last words in the series as the survivors stood over the Sunnydale Hellmouth, "what are we going to do now?" I thought I would share this never before seen #bts picture that Joss took while filming, Once More With Feeling. The legacy of #BTVS still resonates. Thank you to all of the fans for your continued love. What are we going to do now? Celebrate the #scoobygang. #thekey 🔑. 💘🌋🎬🎉

I have conflicted Dawn feelings (okay they’re not that conflicted, but Georgina Sparks made me appreciate Michelle Trachtenberg in a whole new way), but this shot from “Once More with Feeling” is stunning. And how has it been 12 years since this show ended?! That is not okay.

 

The last ever episode of Late Show with David Letterman delivered another TV reunion.

Continuing the “How many cast members can you fit in one elevator?” selfie series with Scandal. Not quite as crowded as the CW lovefest; might need to get a few more #TGIT representatives in here.

This photo by Eliot Glazer is making me want to go to a dog wedding or at least rewatch “The Matrix” episode of Broad City.

 

At the moment I can’t stop listening to John Mulaney’s “Salt and Pepper Diner” story and while this might be a rather tenuous link I’m going with it.

 

Diane Kruger picks the perfect outfit for her Oxford University visit. Got a whole lot of hat/coat/bag envy right now.

 

True love is sharing prop pizza on the You’re the Worst set. Continuing the excellent sunglasses trend too.

 

The Jane the Virgin cast also like each other a lot.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

26 Sep

A busy week for the new Fall TV season and yet relatively light on the red carpet front for “Out of the Box” offerings. Fox and NBC have had their celebrations and now it is time for ABC to launch their new TGIT night, plus talk show appearances, the Metropolitan Opera’s Opening Night Gala and forthcoming costuming delights.

#TGIT Premiere Event Hosted by TwitterIt was the first #TGIT this week with three shows from Shondaland (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder) and Scandal’s Darby Stanchfield is our best dressed from the ABC event to celebrate this new drama block. The nude shoes are a letdown, but not enough to detract from this super sparkly Jasper Conran frock.

This is a fun group shot from this party (courtesy of Darby Stanchfield’s Instagram) featuring women from all three shows and a range of pretty great party frocks. Not so sure about Ellen Pompeo’s Op Art looking jumpsuit, but this is my standard wrinkled nose reaction to most jumpsuits. Viola Davis’ multicolor delights win the best shoes of the night and I’m glad to see such a strong variety of styles from this group of women (from l-r Camilla Luddington, Bellamy Young, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Ellen Pompeo, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Jerrika Hinton).

Kerry WsahingtonKerry Washington has been on the talk show trail this week to promote the return of Scandal and the Scandal inspired line at The Limited. This is our favorite look of Washington’s this week and as it includes polka dots the answer could easily be because, of course. Polka dots are part of the reason, however there is an overall playful quality to this Preen ‘Liberty’ dress and Washington manages to stay the right side of matchy matchy with her accessorizing. Adore.

Amy RyanAre you sensing a theme? Amy Ryan’s vintage Victor Costa gown is a polka dot dream and she looks stunning at the Metropolitan Opera’s Opening Night Gala. A strong red lip color could really set it off and yet I really like the minimalist hair/makeup/jewelry approach to this look.

Patricia ClarksonPatricia Clarkson is one of those actresses I am always thrilled to see and this applies to both the red carpet and on screen. Clarkson is the picture of sophisticated elegance while also pulling off the lace cutouts. Added bold lipstick bonus points.

The gift that keeps on giving is Mindy Kaling’s Instagram and here is what I’m sure will be one of my favorite Mindy Project looks covering bold color (yellow!) and a fun pattern.

Scandal Season 4 Promo Photos: Going Back to Work?

10 Sep

The rain fell down on the cast of Scandal for their season 3 promo shots featuring the incredible Burberry trench Olivia wore in the premiere; this time no one is getting soaked, but they have still delivered a striking image with everyone dressed in their fanciest threads. Yep even Quinn and Huck have ditched the plaid and leather for ball gowns and tuxedos.

For a closer look click on the image (which first appeared exclusively at TV Guide).

BELLAMY YOUNG, DARBY STANCHFIELD, JEFF PERRY, TONY GOLDWYN, KERRY WASHINGTON, SCOTT FOLEY, JOSHUA MALINA, GUILLERMO DIAZ, KATIE LOWESOlivia is of course at the center of the group wearing a beautiful black and white ball gown with the guys mirroring this color palette in dashing white tie. The other women stand out with Mellie in ultra feminine bubblegum pink giving off princess vibes, Abby in an olive green fishtail frock and Quinn wearing the deep blue that we tend to see in her costuming. This cast sure scrubs up well.

It’s not all fun and frolics. Far from it and at the end of season 3 Olivia flew into the sunset accompanied by Jake after everything has gone to hell thanks to Olivia’s mother Mia. It was a bumpy year and one that got weighed down by its own conspiracy; hopefully after a break away from Washington D.C, and the mess her parents have created Olivia will return to a scene that is less convoluted and more like the fast paced fun of the second year.

The individual photos suggest a less lavish affair with everyone in their standard day ‘uniform’ and it looks like Olivia might be ready to get back to work in a tailored grey jacket and black pants. The lack of white is worth noting in this shot as this is the color she tends to wear when she is feeling in control and defiant, grey is her more muddled/conflicted choice.

Scandal Olivia PopeMellie in red. Standard Mellie projecting a strong image garb; the new season is set two months after the events of the finale and while Mellie is an expert in hiding her heartbreak I’m not sure she will be able to pretend everything is okay after the death of her son.

Scandal MellieShonda Rhimes has promised that season 4 will finally shed more light on Abby’s backstory and while we already know that she was married to an abusive and powerful man there are still plenty of narrative blanks to fill in. Abby’s dressed a little darker in her individual shot and the peplum is slightly more fitted than the wrap dresses, draped cardigans, billowy blouses and palazzo pants we’re used to seeing her in.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

9 Aug

The Television Critics Association Press Summer Tour was the focus of the last edition of “Out of the Box” and featured a whole host of different shows. This week we are going to celebrate the women of a show that we have talked about a lot this summer here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and that is Scandal.  Kerry Washington has dominated the discussion so far thanks to her performance as Olivia Pope and her impeccable style as Olivia and on the red carpet. At the ABC Disney TCA party on Sunday the Scandal women all looked incredible this whole post is dedicated to them.

Winner: Darby Stanchfield

ABC TCA Summer 2013 Party

Much to my delight full skirts feature big in 2013 F/W collections and this Alexa von Canisius jacquard floral-print pleated skirt that Darby Stanchfield is wearing is beautiful. Pairing it with a simple black silk top and black pumps lets the skirt be the centerpiece of the outfit. As Abby on Scandal Stanchfield’s amazing red hair is often straighter than straight so the tousled approach instantly separates her from her character. A bold lipstick also compliments the whole look and while a bracelet might add something, the lack of accessories also stops it from becoming cluttered.

Runner Up: Kerry Washington 

Kerry Washington TCA

Kerry Washington’s orange and white Giambattista Valli dress from the Resort 2014 collection is fun take on pattern clashing. The paisley pattern on the top combined with the scribbled detail on the skirt could like a magic eye illusion (it’s a boat) but thankfully this unlikely pattern pairing works. Kerry Washington likes to dabble in a variety of styles on the red carpet and this is why I could write endless red carpet posts about her; she never sticks to the same one designer or approach and has a good time with the clothes that she wears. Both her Christian Louboutin pumps and Nancy Gonzalez clutch are in neutral tones that don’t distract attention away from the dress, plus she has one new piece of jewelry as Washington got married in June.

Runner Up: Bellamy Young

Disney & ABC Television Group's "2013 Summer TCA Tour" - Arrivals

More floral goodness as Bellamy Young wears a super summery frock from Elie Tahari, paired with a thin yellow belt. I’ve got so used to seeing Bellamy Young in her traditional First Lady clothes that feature a lot of bold primary colors and pastels but not much pattern so this is a huge departure. Mellie’s hair is normally styled to perfection and when she wears it down her curls have a certain rigidity, here Young’s hair is allowed to be free and she looks like the kind of woman I would want to have a cocktail with (actually I’d really love to have a bottle of wine or two with Mellie as she’s become one of my favorites on Scandal).

Runner Up: Katie Lowes

Katie Lowes TCA

Katie Lowes is wearing the only non-patterned dress and even though mint green is everywhere this summer, this ICB dress feels like it could be a work outfit – an amazing work outfit but it makes me think office more than party. The white blazer is serving up Olivia Pope related thoughts and while it isn’t terrible overall it lacks the summer freshness of her co-stars. There is one aspect of this look that trumps the rest of the Scandal ladies and that is the incredible color-block Oscar de la Renta pumps.
