Best of the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet

6 Jun

Awards they keep on coming and in New York last night it was time to honor the fashion designers. For a full list of the CFDA Fashion Award recipients head here and below you will find our favorite looks of the night; worn by the stars celebrating the designers who make them look so good.

This includes some award season favorites and other TV Ate My Wardrobe staples. Big trends of the night include a whole lot of shimmer, shades of yellow and ’70s inspiration continuing its recent domination. Award season wasn’t even that long ago, but we’ve missed the presence of Janelle Monáe’s in these parts. Elevating any black and white ensemble and making pretty much anything work including this Christian Siriano half jacket jumpsuit number.

Monáe was honored for her contributions to the Women’s March in February – along with Gloria Steinem and Cecile Richards – and she gave a blistering speech. Part of which you can watch below.

You can read the whole thing here.Rodarte delivers another delightfully eccentric creation and it is far from an easy outfit to pull off, but Gabrielle Union is doing just that.

The 1970s influence continues to be strong in the fashion world, much to my delight and Union’s curls lean into this trend. Bella Hadid in a fabulous fuchsia Off White blazer frock and this is giving me so many Sydney Bristow disguise feelings. I always have a soft spot for Diane Von Furstenberg and this triple offering on Haim is leaning into all the things I love about this brand. Plus stripes and polka dots. I’m not totally feeling these ankle boots, but that is a personal preference thing with white boots (unless they are on Kevin Garvey). Mary Elizabeth Winstead gives off an air of elegance in a chartreuse yellow Lela Rose, switching things up from some of the edgier looks of the night. Also adding some sparkle and a strong berry lip. Two of my favorite things.A metallic Grecian vibe for Lupita Nyong’o in Jason Wu and this dress manages to be both simple and exquisite. A touch of shimmer and Kerry Washington is on point in more ways than one in yellow Atelier Prabal Gurung.

Kerry Washington also gave great behind the scenes photos and choice of companions. Plus a close-up of Janelle Monáe’s earrings is the icing on the Insta cake.Rounding things off with the delightful Matt Bomer and yes he’s not wearing any socks, which I know can be a deal breaker when it comes to dudes in suits. And asides from some pant crinkles – even dudes need a steam station – this olive Todd Snyder suit is a hit.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 May

 

Ah, May. That time of year when EVERYTHING is going on including the Cannes film festival and TV upfronts. This means plenty of red carpet moments and I would usually break down each network with their own post. Unfortunately (or I guess fortunately) this week I have been stacked with other work (see herehere and there’s more exciting stuff to come) and so it all comes down to “Out of the Box.”

So this is a bumper edition that also includes Emmy FYC events, premieres, the BAFTA TV awards and more. Also continuing the trend of all the color and pattern.I’ve talked on numerous occasions about how thrilled I am when cast members remain friends long after the project has wrapped and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants ladies are a prime example of that. Often popping up on each other’s Instagram posts in a way that doesn’t feel phony or like they’re doing it just for the content boost. Basically it is their “just like us” moment and I never feel this way about Blake Lively.

They all turned out for Amber Tamblyn’s directorial debut Paint it Black and there’s no upstaging here; it isn’t a one black blazer fits all situation and three out of the four have gone this route. Alexis Bledel continues her super hot patterned streak and this whole situation is making me want to rewatch those movies.

Also whoa that I just found out two Twin Peaks links – yeah I’m late to this – as Amber Tamblyn’s dad is Dr Jacoby and Lively’s half-sister is Lana. Michaela Coel’s mother might be new favorite designer and at the BAFTA TV Awards she went mini in this very fun geometric number. Also going short is Michelle Williams at the Wonderstruck Cannes photocall and this is my favorite of her recent Louis Vuitton looks. The shape and pattern are fabulous; it manages to be the most Michelle Williams with a slight edge.

Obligatory bathroom selfie but I'm missing my bff Michelle. 😭❤️🌈

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

It has been too long since our last Michelle/Busy bathroom selfie, but Busy’s Alice + Olivia rainbow frock is a delight.

Sadly, there was no Busy Philipps at the upfronts and NBC are still yet to make a decision on her pilot Sackett Sisters so here is my obligatory #MustSeeSackett shout-out.At the ABC upfront, Kerry Washington gives great color blocking cuteness in Fausto Puglisi and nailing the whole daytime event styling.More ABC darlings and Tracee Ellis Ross also got the red memo wearing Ryan Roche (and styled by our fave Karla Welch). Ross’ TV husband, Anthony Anderson also looks super swish and I still need to catch up on Black-ish, much to my TV watching shame.At the EW upfront party, Yvette Nicole Brown is giving me so much jumpsuit inspiration in polka dot Corey Lynn Calter. Such a fun look and also pockets!

As a big Madewell fan it thrills me to see one of their clutches on the red carpet (because it is nice to see things I can actually afford). A floral explosion at NBC and more Karla Welch stylist delights (see also America Ferrera) with Amy Poehler in Warm NY. It also pleases me immensely that Poehler is wearing a colorful pump with this colorful frock.Double America Ferrera this week and she’s taking a page from her Sisterhood co-star’s book in Saloni.

Ferrera’s current co-star, Ben Feldman looks great – that shirt! – until you get to his shoes. I’m actually okay with sneakers with a suit (especially for a daytime event), but not these sneakers. Confession – I really dislike the bottom of Mandy Moore’s skirt and everything I love about this look is above the knee. The lace is too much and it distracts. However, the top of this DVF ensemble is amazing and ticks so many boxes – collar, pattern – and I am also feeling very emotional about Ron Cephas Jones standing next to Moore.

It wouldn’t be This is Us if I wasn’t getting teary.More florals and this time of the maxi dress variety from Gina Rodriguez in Milly at the CW upfront. What a delight.

It isn’t all flowers and stripes will forever take my heart; Constance Zimmer’s Tracy Reese frock looks like it is from the same collection as Susan Kelechi Watson’s sweater from earlier this year. Perfect panel attire.How much do I want to see Judith Light to guest star on The Good Fight wearing this caped dress? I think you can guess the answer. At the Paley Honors: Celebrating Women In Television event, Judith Light crushes everything, as always.

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 May

Somehow it is May already and this month is a particularly busy one for TV and fashion. The first Monday in May is Met Gala day; it delivered in some respects and featured some of our TV faves. This month is also traditionally the time for season finales and upfronts (even if FX had theirs in April), but as the TV schedule has evolved there is now big new stuff coming every month. Or every week as it feels right now.

This week’s “Out of the Box” is another case of giving great daytime event style with all the pattern and color. The Hulu upfront dominates our sartorial picks and there’s also some Met Gala post-party runoff. Elisabeth Moss has been crushing it with her corridor outfit posing of late on Instagram and this is another case of the amazing eye of super stylist Karla Welch. Here she’s working the Hulu brunch in color block Ted Baker and you know that collar is right up my street.

Also if you haven’t done this already then check out Jada Yuan’s fabulous interview with Moss for NY Mag including some A+ jewelry buying advice from January Jones. The thing with events like this is they often give good wedding guest cocktail dress inspiration (as long as it isn’t too fancy) and this is ideal for this time of year. Case in point is Samira Wiley wearing a floral Carmen Marc Valvo frock and I’m glad she went with a colorful shoe too.Rounding out the Handmaid’s Tale cast is Alexis Bledel in pattern clashing Saloni Resort mixing flowers with polka dots. I love everything about this look right down to her purple strappy sandals and the short tuxedo style jacket.The Hulu bash had full foliage to pose in front of and this works wonders with all the summery fashion on display including Mindy Kaling in this Sachin & Babi gown. Now just get me a cocktail to enjoy.I love the drama of Mary Katrantzou dress and Michelle Monaghan – another Karla Welch client – is serving up plenty of that here. Casual is one of several shows returning this month (May 23) and Tara Lynne Barr’s colorful shorts go a long way in making me ignore how bland those sandals are. Great pedicure though. Kerry Washington was one of our Met Gala highlights (and someone who paid attention to the theme) and here she is the day after at the Bronx Children’s Museum Gala wearing striped Carolina Herrera.

This is giving me circus tent feelings and I mean that in the best possible way. All you need is Keri Russell in her Rag & Bone tails and we’ve got a theme.Speaking of which and as I have a fondness for a getting ready behind the scenes photo diary here is one from Keri Russell’s makeup artist Tina Turnbow for Coveteur

Giving a closeup of Russell’s incredible eyeliner and revealing that Matthew Rhys almost ended up with something similar. Also this is a very adorable shot. Now for a couple of outfit changes for the post-Met parties including Zendaya switching out one D&G incredible print for another. So much ladysuit love with this double-breasted sleeveless take.

And I just realized we’ll be getting a whole lot more Zendaya red carpet action soon with the Spider-Man promo tour.Bookending “Out of the Box” this week with more Karla Welch delights and Ruth Negga changed from ethereal Valentino into edgy leather Valentino. Negga is serving up great posing face whereas Dominic Cooper is giving slightly tipsy vibes. Having seen the amazing Mamma Mia! wrap party pictures this makes sense.

Best of the 2017 Winter TCA Panel and Party Style (So Far)

12 Jan

Award season and the Golden Globes are not the only place for super stylish outfits this month/week as the 2017 winter TCA press tour is fully underway. The really great thing about this occurring during award season is getting to see outfits that are more like the things I would actually wear. Don’t get me wrong; I love the grand and opulent gowns that we get to see on the red carpet at this time of year, but it is also fun to mix things up. See also why I cannot wait for all the knitwear and coats from Sundance.

There are patterns aplenty and this is one trend that was lacking at the Golden Globes, but because of the whole panel element there isn’t always standing shots so some outfits don’t get their full moment to shine.kerry-washington-and-bellamy-youngThe whole TGIT block got pushed back a week, but we have some sartorial delights from the cast of Scandal with Kerry Washington looking stunning in a floral Prabal Gurung frock and super cute purple ribbon Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Bellamy Young is also crushing it in patterns with leopard print really making a comeback (see also Keri Russell at the Globes) and pairing this bold skirt with a red short sleeve sweater adds a fiery elegance to the whole look.cush-jumboAfter The Good Wife ended in disappointment I was pretty sure I didn’t need any more from this world, but it turns out it was maybe just Alicia Florrick’s story that I was done with as with every promo and interview about this spinoff my excitement levels grow.

Plus more Diane (and a Diane who is allowed to swear) is everything I need right now. Same goes for Cush Jumbo and it will be good to see the super stylish Lucca Quinn step out from her ‘get-a-grip’ friend role.

Also this Carolina Herrera pink dress is super cute and Jumbo looks amazing both on the show in costume Daniel Lawson’s choices and IRL.the-good-fightAnd the full Good Fight cast with the creators. I am so ready. condola-rashadSometimes an abstract print is what you need as Condola Rashad from Billions is demonstrating; it is like palm trees meets Pollack. michelle-monaghanAt The Path session Michelle Monaghan is several levels of mesmerizing in this Mary Katrantzou frock delivering on both pattern and sparkle.

madchen-amickDramatic shoulders at the Twin Peaks revival panel and Mädchen Amick delivers in La Petite Robe by Chiara Boni with bonus red lip. Confession time – I have still not watched Twin Peaks even though I got the DVD two Christmases ago and I am hanging my head in so much shame. This will be rectified by Sunday, May 21 when it returns to TV. izombieApril is going to be a great TV month with the last season of The Leftovers and the return of iZombie on April 4. And this is one good looking and super stylish cast with A+ suit choices and a fabulous Yigal Azrouel frock for Rose McIver. I would also love to know what point she is making here.samira-wiley-and-elisabeth-mossAnother confession – I have not read The Handmaid’s Tale, but I did buy it this week and it is next on my To Read pile after I am done with the short story detective anthology I’m reading right now. It is a book I am of course aware of and that it is very timely despite coming out over thirty years ago.

The cast is also incredible and this shot of Samira Wiley and Elisabeth Moss is delightful.elisabeth-mossSwitching from pants to a dress and on the same Hulu day Elisabeth Moss gives me collar and color envy in this fabulous Ulyana Sergeenko frock. alexis-bledelIt was also announced on Saturday that Alexis Bledel is in The Handmaid’s Tale and hopefully she will be better received in this than Rory Gilmore’s writing career in the Gilmore Girl’s revival.

Great dress and I’m so happy Bledel’s shoe/manicure choice is summer when her dress is winter. Got to mix those seasons.yvonne-strahovskiSometimes a black jumpsuit does the trick as Yvonne Strahovski demonstrates.tara-lynne-barrTara Lynne Barr is here to remind me that I still need to finish watching the last season of Casual and also that red boots are fabulous. Another good example of an outfit I would actually wear.ari-graynorAs with Yvonne Strahovski’s black jumpsuit, Ari Graynor goes classic in a black sweater and pencil skirt (further research on Twitter revealed this wasn’t a sweater dress like I hoped it might be) as she talks “I’m Dying Up Here.”conor-leslieConor Leslie of new Fox show Shots Fired delivers on winter botanicals and this dress skirts the right side of sheer (yeah there is one), but really it is her lipstick that is giving me so much life right now. leighton-meester-tcaMuch to my joy Leighton Meester is returning to TV in March for Fox’s time travel comedy Making History and in jumpsuit news I am enjoying the turtleneck twist combined with the gold studs; this feels very business but you can also go to the club after.

Best of the 2016 Emmys: Shimmer, Black and White

19 Sep

Continuing our Emmy style rundown and this second bumper post gives great sparkle. Plus the many different interpretations of how to wear black and white on the red carpet.constance-wuGetting 70s disco vibes from Constance Wu in J. Mendel and after Sarah Paulson’s Prada, this is my favorite look of the night.judith-lightJudith fucking Light. Always amazing. No exceptions. laverne-coxOrange is the New Black was pretty much shutout this year, but Laverne Cox is giving statuette realness is Naeem Khan.claire-danesClaire Danes might want to tone down the tan/bronzer, but her Schiaparelli super sparkly number is a stunner.taraji-p-hensonTaraji P. Henson changed it all up for presenting and I think I like this look even more than the yellow dress. Sequins and that hairstyle continue the nod to the 70s.stranger-things-kidsThe Stranger Things kids are adorable and need to be protected at all costs. Also continuing the trend of dressing better than a lot of adults, particularly in the tux department (see also Jacob Tremblay). Millie Bobby Brown put a bird on it in Red Valentino and this is the perfect brand for her.kristen-bellA very romantic looking Zuhair Murad floral gown for Kristen Bell and this is giving me all the heart eyes.yara-shahidiAnother knockout choice from Yara Shahidi and a Clara Rotescu dress that also gave great twirl/floating style.tracee-ellis-rossEverything about Tracee Ellis in this pose and Ralph Lauren dress is incredibly regal. holly-taylorThe Americans sadly didn’t win, but Holly Taylor combines great sparkle with white in custom Theia Couture. rami-malekRami Malek in a white Dior tux jacket is showing why he was on our most anticipated list.tittus-burgessRami’s not the only one crushing the white tux jacket look and Tituss Burgess also came with a strong shoe and bow tie game.sophie-turnerA sheer frock I don’t hate! Sophie Turner delivers a miracle in Valentino.jldAnd even more sheer that I like! Julia Louis-Dreyfus gave a heart crushing speech as her dad passed away on Friday, which left me pretty much sobbing into my wine.america-ferreraSequins really were the big style winner of the night and America Ferrera’s Jenny Packham frock is another evening high point.kerry-washingtonKerry Washington is never boring on the red carpet and she’s wearing a show stopping Brandon Maxwell number coupled with hair that takes me back to Olivia Pope hanging out on a tropical beach.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

17 Aug

Midweek Instagram TV highlights this week include some of our weekly faves with the iZombie and You’re the Worst cast continuing their behind the scenes photo domination. Plus style highs from Yara Shahidi, James Wolk wrapped in blankets and my new costume obsession.

70's jane.

A post shared by Gina Rodriguez (@hereisgina) on

 

A combination of so many of my favorite things and Gina Rodriguez suits this styling so well. Between this and The Get Down (see more of that below) my seventies clothing obsession is alive and well.

And we're back. But which one is she? #Petra or #anezka #janethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

More Jane the Virgin set antics and the return of Petra (or could it be her evil twin? – I heart this plot twist so much). Always wine.

THERE she is. #BTS #Scandal #oliviapope

A post shared by Kerry Washington (@kerrywashington) on

 

While we’re on the subject of wine; one of TV’s biggest wine drinkers has a full glass (of grape juice) on the set of Scandal and it sounds like I need to catch up after reading this Entertainment Weekly season 6 post (I keep quitting and coming back).

 

This sounds like everything I would ever want from a Marnie storyline. She would be so perfect for this.

Keep a look out for me as the evil twin on The Americans next season.

A post shared by Judd Apatow (@juddapatow) on

 

Matthew Rhys and his glorious beard are guest starring on the final season of Girls. Sadly no details are available yet so time to conjure up your best pairing for him. I am not so secretly hoping he will have something to do with Adam. Fun connection time – Matthew Rhys and Adam Driver shared the stage back in 2012 in Look Back in Anger and this also happened to be the play that got the Americans casting director interested in Rhys for Philip Jennings.

Hollywood Reporter Drama Actress 2016 Roundtable: Watch the Full Video

28 Jun

Last night the first process of Emmy voting closed with the initial round of nominations. Those will not be announced until Thursday, July 14 and in the meantime the full versions of the Hollywood Reporter Emmy roundtable discussions will air every Sunday on SundanceTV before being made available on YouTube.

The first one up is the drama actresses and we showcased this chat a few weeks ago when this amazing group of women covered The Hollywood Reporter.

Now watch the whole conversation below.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Jun

The Tony Awards red carpet was awash with color and pattern so it was interesting to see that the rest of this week was so dominated by neutrals and metallics with a dash of florals.

We’ve got the New York Orange is the New Black premiere and a couple of other events featuring some TV Ate My Wardrobe faves.Samira WileyHappy OITNB Day!

Samira Wiley in a classic plunging black jumpsuit – cue reminder that I still need to embrace this trend – and bold berry lip color. OITNBI love seeing group shots of this cast because what other show has this much diversity and array of body shapes, looks and style choices with this many women? I think the answer is probably none. And this is just a small portion of the sizable OITNB cast.

Outfit standouts here include Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba with Taylor Schilling and Natasha Lyonne – does this mean Nicky is back? – getting the lipstick points. Vicky JeudyGoing for a look that would fit right in at Studio 54 and Vicky Jeudy crushes it in gold metallic Halston. Taraji P HensonKeeping on the metal theme with Taraji P. Henson in Marc Jacobs serving up a whole lot of steel with a dash of floral embellishment at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards; Henson was honored with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television for her performance as Cookie Lyon on EmpireClaire DanesKeeping on this muted shimmery trend at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards is Claire Danes in Dolce & Gabbana with her second red carpet appearance on TV Ate My Wardrobe this week. Pink lipstick yes! Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington is a patterned dress wearing queen and after last week’s dreamy D&G number here is another delight; this time it is Giambattista Valli and I am particularly here for those floaty sleeves. More pink lipstick to add some color into this week’s muted tones theme. Rose McIverEnding this week’s “Out of the Box” with a boost of color and pants with Rose McIver at the 2016 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future event celebrating Natalie Dormer (who was honored at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards – also sponsored by Max Mara).

McIver’s look is giving me so many late 90s flashbacks, but not of the choker *shudder* kind and this looks like something I would have worn back then and even now. Also giving me Keri Russell in Felicity vibes. Love the fresh faced/hair back approach here and I cannot wait for iZombie to return after my recent binge.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

10 Jun

After a brief period of minimal red carpet events it is suddenly all happening again including the CFDA Awards and plenty of Emmy related events with roundtables, screenings and general awards chat. Plus, magazine covers!

Some shows in contention are also promoting their upcoming seasons – that really is some A+ plus timing – and there are lots of super summery looks for you to enjoy this week including a whole array of patterned frocks, sunglasses and light suits. Kerry Washington, Aziz AnsariEverything about this cover is pure delight and Kerry Washington’s Dolce & Gabbana frock is giving off so many European summer vacation vibes; so much so that I’m writing this in the morning and yet I’m hankering for a patio, the biggest selection of bread and cheeses and an Olivia Pope size glass of wine.

Aziz Ansari as ever looks great in a suit and you can watch their whole Actors on Actors chat here.Kate McKinnonLadysuit Alert! The cast of the new Ghostbusters get their own covers for the Elle ‘Women in Comedy’ issue and they are all pure joy with Kate McKinnon just edging out in the front as my favorite.

My one caveat (and it is something Elle has previously been guilty of) is the Melissa McCarthy choice as her full body shot is so great and I don’t know why they opted for the close up (well I do know why *sighs*). As Samantha Powell points out the black dress photo looks like it was part of the cover set.Lauren LapkusLauren Lapkus crushing it in Alice + Olivia at the Elle ‘Women in Comedy’ celebration and if I had any more weddings to go to this summer (other than my own) then this would be ideal guest attire. Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Olsen, Michael B. JordanFollowing the Fug Girls mantra that ‘everybody looks hotter in sunglasses’ and also in a week where I took a deep dive into this accessory choice in my TV and Style column over at The Observer; this group shot at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is most welcome.

This event always brings out excellent summer style and from Elizabeth Olsen’s shorts take on a ladysuit to Michael B. Jordan’s no tie polka dot look they are oozing sunshine cool. TV Ate My Wardrobe couple fave Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale also deliver on the polo watching front in summer frocks and a pink shirt seems like a ubiquitous choice for an occasion like this.Mr RobotMr Robot isn’t back until next month (Wednesday, July 13) so I think we can expect to see a lot more of this cast in the coming weeks and this is only a good thing.

Rami Malek and Christian Slater have shown on numerous occasions that they can mix their red carpet style up from casual to fancy pants with Rami throwing his hat into the floral trend at the Television Academy 70th Anniversary celebration. We’ve seen a version of Portia Doubleday’s Philosophy dress on Sarah Paulson a couple of months ago and I much prefer this plunging neckline take and Carly Chaikin’s giving lots of chill vibes in RVNNYC.Shiri ApplebyAny regular readers will know how happy I am to have UnREAL back and this has been a super fun press tour (although the premiere viewing numbers are less than encouraging).

The premiere took a deep dive back into the dark and twisted world of reality TV and I can’t see Rachel wearing anything as cute as Shiri Appleby’s Kayat floral mini with super poofy sleeves any time soon. Hot pink Stuart Weitzman sandals really set the whole look off.Scott SpeedmanWelcome back to TV Scott Speedman and to the promo train with Animal Kingdom (premieres Tuesday, June 14 on TNT). Okay so this suit is a little on the crinkled front, but I’m willing to forgive that for Ben Covington related reasons and it is very much keeping with the summer vibe.

Also here is Speedman on The Late Show being totally charming.

Happy Friday!
