New York Fashion Week, TIFF, shows ending, reunions and other behind the scenes shenanigans on Instagram this week. September continues to deliver.
Friday Night Lights cast hangouts get me every single time. This is no exception.
Now for NYFW and at Opening Ceremony this is a whole lot of comic actors to adore, all wearing fabulous clothes.
More Alia Shawkat and the Rachel Antonoff Betty and Veronica collection was showcased in a super fun and imaginative way, with Shawkat being one of the models.
So many heart eyes at Phoebe Robinson in Tracy Reese at NYFW and I am really looking forward to reading You Can’t Touch My Hair, which is out next month.
All eyes are on Belfast to see which Game of Thrones cast members are heading to Northern Ireland for season 7 and while this bar hang is not a guarantee that Sansa and Arya will reunite any time soon, I can but dream. I am also here for Maisie William’s double drink choice of a cocktail and what looks like a hot beverage.
The month of everything happening continues with the Toronto Film Festival and Hidden Figures is on my most anticipated list (see also La La Land, Manchester by the Sea, Colossal and Jackie). Glen Powell is pretty much the main reason I stuck with Scream Queens and he’s got the best co-star hangouts at TIFF.
Top notch prom posing skills.
Also at TIFF is Uzo Aduba and this is an incredible pre-premiere shot.
So happy that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won a couple of Emmys over the weekend. Expect a lot more Emmy Insta next week.
I’m still confident in saying that BrainDead was my favorite show of the summer and while I am sad it is probably done, the finale kept up the absurd/fun/weird/sexy/amazing costume levels.
Is Liv getting a zombie dog? This is a serious cutie.
Masters of Sex returned this week with a promising start to the season after last year’s messiness. Niecy Nash was a welcome presence and she won’t put up with Bill’s self-pity.
The boots and jeans look works well on Joshua Jackson so thank you, Affair costume department.
Time for the weekly installment of I heart the You’re the Worst team; at work on a Saturday.
And then followed by spending the evening together.
TV Instagram is busy again with a lot of shows back from hiatus and this week’s behind the scenes highlights include Jane the Virgin, You’re the Worst and iZombie. Plus we have TCA style, Rachel Bloom’s male gaze take on casting notices and a Sex and the City project I do want to see.
Joining the ranks of those returning to work is the Jane the Virgin cast and there is a notable person sitting at that table.
More Jane the Virgin delights with almost hat twins Yael Grobglas and Gina Rodriguez. It looks like someone will be wearing a wig for at least the start of the season.
While we’re on the subject of changing hair and it will come as no surprise that I love a good hiatus beards, but there is not much that can be done to hide this level of grizzle. For Justin Baldoni the beard now only exists in the form of old photos and future hiatus dreams.
After posting a photo of the super depressing casting notices from Backstage, Rachel Bloom wrote some very similar sounding descriptions for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend characters but with a male gaze. “Singing a plus.”
The DC TV universe keeps on getting bigger.
The big Brooklyn Nine-Nine news is they’re doing a crossover with New Girl (and I’m very into this idea). It is nice to see these smiling faces again.
The You’re the Worst season 3 countdown continues and these details from their TCA panel have got me even more excited.
You’re the Worst group shot with a hint of fancy costuming; big party episode alert?
Continuing their behind the brains hot streak; here is iZombie’s Robert Buckley doing Rose McIver a solid by looking after her hair clips.
They also have some pretty amazing location views when they get out of the morgue.
Best hug sandwich. No need for hot sauce.
It was announced at TCA that Transparent season 3 will return Friday, September 23 and I’m looking forward to seeing this family again.
From one stylish TV family to an even more stylish TV family and the cast of Black-ish at TCA.
I would like to watch SATC with Phoebe Robinson. All of these points are very valid.
Danielle Brooks posts some of my favorite style shots. This is another one.
I stopped watching The Mindy Project last season (the Danny stuff just got too urgh), but I am glad I get to enjoy the incredible costuming via Mindy’s Insta.
Carly Chaikin showing why Darlene was meant to be with my fave heart-shaped specs.
Ending this week with yet another reason to love Kirsten Dunst.
Shows back from summer hiatus while others come closer to their end. Plus cast reunions, dancing, fancy dinners at the White House and more from this week’s TV Instagram highlights.
You’re the Worst returns this month – August 31 – and I cannot wait; just look at these faces. All the heart emojis. Catch up on Hulu now and in the meantime I will be listening to this season 2 credits music playlist to get in the mood.
But wait! There is more You’re the Worst cast antics on Instagram and I spy sunglasses to covet on Aya Cash’s head.
Keeping with the sunglasses trend and adding a big dose of “holy crap this is adorable” from Lucy Liu with her son Rockwell on the set of Elementary.
Fun getting ready pictures of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ trip to the White House last night from hair stylist Brian Magallones. Cue every Russian spy joke ever and it would appear that the Obamas are fans of The Americans as they scored a prime spot at the state dinner table. Excellent dress choice by Keri Russell and a nice prelude to the Emmys next month.
Sometimes a hiatus beard happens (see Matthew Rhys) and other times in between seasons a different dye job is the thing (or this could be work related). Regardless, from this obscured shot the blonde looks great on Sophie Turner.
While we’re on the subject of Game of Thrones here is a fun reunion.
This is actually from the Fast and Furious set, but Tormund would look great with a wolfie of his own as this photo shows.
It can be dangerous as well as super stylish on the set of BrainDead.
OITNB cast closeness continues even when one of them is away.
I am so glad I am all caught up on iZombie for a number of reasons. One is that I get to enjoy these delightful “behind the brains” shenanigans.
Oh there’s more dancing.
And sneaky eating. Craft service would easily be my downfall. Just look at all those pastries.
There have been a lot of missteps on UnREAL this season including keeping Rachel and Quinn apart and at loggerheads. The end of this week’s episode included a really satisfying moment that doesn’t erase everything that has come before it, but it felt good to see them together again. Also this is a really nice photo of Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby.
Joining the shows that are no longer on summer break; New Girl.
Last Man on Earth is also back from hiatus and January Jones continues her reign as Insta Queen.
While other shows are nearing their very end.
And in shows/onscreen pairings that I miss we have Diane Kruger and Demián Bichir back on The Bridge.
For a closer look at some of the Emmy nominated costumes including this personal fave head to the Costume Designers Guild Awards page for a lot more treats.
This photo of Michiel Huisman led to a very fun conversation about dudes in sweaters on Twitter last week and I thank him for that much needed break from work.
Some Emmy nomination related posts, Instagram style highs and casts returning to set are all on the agenda this week.
The Wine Show is coming to Hulu August 13 and get ready for the Matthews in full cheeky scamp mode with a big dose of dad jokes and puns. It is wonderful.
The Looking movie airs this Sunday and while I am so not ready to be over (a thing I keep repeating in relation to this project) I am excited to feel all the feelings. Frankie J. Alvarez is doing a very good job in preparing me.
Chris Geere looks back to season 1 premiere of You’re the Worst and it isn’t too long until Gretchen and Jimmy will be back on our screens. *insert prayer hands emoji here*
Now to the present with Aya Cash eating and reading (great book choice).
Lots of fall show casts are back on set and Vincent Rodriguez III from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gives good hot weather hydration reminders (my apartment is a sweatbox so I definitely need to do this).
So Rachel Bloom didn’t get the acting nomination I was hoping for and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend missed out on Best Comedy, but they did score song and choreography nods for “Settle for Me” (and two other dance numbers).
While we’re on the subject of Emmys; I was very excited for this and while I wasn’t in a Panera, I maybe did let out a bit (okay a lot) of a scream.
Emilia Clarke celebrates the Game of Thrones supporting actress category domination – sad to see no Sophie Turner – with a look at the not so glamorous nature of set life.
And Maisie Williams does so with this cute and terrifying video.
Also in the supporting category is Constance Zimmer (if only Shiri Appleby could have been nominated in the lead category too) wearing this fabulous dress from the UnREAL season 2 episode “Infiltration.”
Another returning to set photo and it is good to see Jonny Lee Miller back all buttoned up with Lucy Liu looking as flawless as ever on Elementary.
Any hot sauce for the iZombie cast?
Gina Rodriguez continues her summer of excellent hair changes while on hiatus going blonde and crushing it with those funky sunglasses.
Danielle Brooks wins the Best Style on Instagram this week with this beautiful look.
I know this barefoot walk so well. An unsurprisingly very fabulous outfit from Mindy Kaling.
Ending things this week with a fun one from Chelsea Peretti and Andre Braugher gives great flat cap.
A day earlier than the usual Behind the Insta-Scenes posting time and that’s because it has been jam packed with the ATX Television Festival in Austin delivering on the TV reunion front. Plus the Tony Awards and other great TV related hangouts.
The ATX Television Festival provided a whole lot of feelings all over Instagram (I would be a mess if I was there IRL) and the Friday Night Lights reunion was the number one source.
Also from Austin we’ve got Mae Whitman bringing together two parts of the Jason Katims TV map. I really like her glasses.
In more excellent TV reunion photos with the ladies from Ugly Betty and one boozy hangout dream scenario; Vanessa Williams AND Judith Light.
Posing up a storm and the UnREAL cast continues to crush all things on Instagram (also this week’s episode is SO great).
Danai Gurira was one of our Tony Awards red carpet faves and not only is she delivering on the excellent Insta multi group shots, but she’s also given us a getting ready photo diary over at Vogue.
In non-shocking news to regular readers, but I adore this selfie. And everything about this friendship. Michelle Williams’ lipstick looks even better in close up.
This is also really wonderful and showcases the hell out of Busy Philipps’ amazing frock.
More in the Tony selfie stream and Lucy Liu was one of the yellow frock delights from the night.
Lupita gifts us with a Tonys dress and accessories still life; such exquisite and detailed work.
Glenn Close looks amazing and in a ‘stars they’re just like us’ moment she’s seen her clutching heels rather than wearing them after a big event (I normally last 2 hours, maybe 3 if/when the booze kicks in).
Busy Philipps has the Jane Eyre Olympia Le-Tan book cover clutch and this Bell Jar one (as mentioned in this Tonys post) is my ultimate clutch wish list item.
They didn’t get a chance to work together on The Good Wife, but I am so here for this.
A well earned coffee break on the set of Outlander.
You’re the Worst is now shooting season 3 and I cannot wait for more. Love the slippers, Kether.
BrainDead started last night and I liked the pilot a bunch; the leads are great and former Good Wife costume designer Daniel Lawson is giving me a whole new blazer wardrobe to covet.
Behind the scenes of this fantastic New York Magazine Tracee Ellis Ross photo shoot gives the bonus of seeing Ross dancing to Beyoncé.
Co-stars supporting co-stars, returning summer shows, crushes are all included in this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.” Plus plenty of stylish moments, a very cute TBT and more from the CFDA Awards.
The Mr Robot season 2 promo train is gearing up with a dash of Emmy FYC and here is an adorably stylish photo of the cast being adorable.
OITNB returns in just over a week (!) and some of the cast were in Berlin giving off serious glam vibes.
UnREAL returned this week with a strong and biting premiere; here is Shiri Appleby gifting us with a Doogie Howser flashback.
Back to the present and this pairing makes me so happy; great wcw choice.
Tonight is The Americans S4 finale and Holly Taylor not only plays one of the best teens on TV, but her notebook prop from the show is so spot on with detail even if we barely get to see this stuff on screen.
Lupita Nyong’o continues to get excellent backstage visitors and this week 12 Years a Slave co-star Sarah Paulson dropped by.
Keeping on this track; the Jane the Virgin cast are coming out to support Jamie Camil’s summer turn on Broadway in Chicago.
More Jane the Virgin co-stars supporting co-stars delights.
This week I found out that Kristofer Hivju is on Instagram and my Tormund crush continues to grow.
While I’m on the subject of crushes. Oh, hello. So excited to have Scott Speedman back on TV.
From inside the CFDA Awards there are some fun Lena Dunham picture hangouts (and the second Sarah Paulson appearance on here this week).
A pre-awards look from the Broad City ladies.
From one awards show to another across the pond and another excellent group of ladies hanging out.
A whole lot of You’re the Worst feelings going on and so many heart eyes at every outfit.
Shopping while shooting the Trainspotting sequel.
A relatively quiet week on the style front what with the holiday weekend reducing the number of events, but never fear as we’ve still got plenty of sartorial treats on offer from the Resort 2017 fashion shows and Hollywood Reporter award season showcase. The Hollywood Reporter continues my favorite series of the year with their pre-Emmy nominations roundtables including the monster Supporting Actor class photo, which this year features actors from TV Ate My Wardrobe faves such as You’re the Worst, The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, The Leftovers, Togetherness and Girls.
The 30-strong actor photo can be seen here and it was this individual shot of Kether Donohue that gives me full heart eyes; the caped Bariano jacket, Stella & Jamie top, Adrianna Papell skirt, the red lipstick and the mischievous glint in Donohue’s eyes make this a standout. I’m on record plenty of times not loving shoes in the beige/nude zone, but these Carmen Steffens pumps work like a charm with this look.

It’s not just TV that is getting the roundtable treatment and both the Tony actresses and actors are featured this week. There is so much to love about this group of women and the styling of the shoot is far less fussy and far less pastel infused than the drama TV actress edition. The vibe here is pretty chill and the whole conversation which you can watch below is super charming and really interesting.
I am pretty new to all things Broadway – my first show was two years ago this week when Michelle Williams was in Cabaret – so there is plenty I didn’t realize before I watched this. Namely how dangerous performing on Broadway can be.I couldn’t find the fashion credits, but I’m just gonna go ahead and assume that Michelle Williams is wearing Louis Vuitton and while I can’t see her feet I’m also gonna assume that she is wearing some form of the chunky boots (see Alicia Vikander below). This photo in the midst of getting a makeup touch up is ultimate Michelle Williams and therefore I heart it hard.I know I should probably hate these boots and yet the 90s teen in me loves everything about them and knows they would have been my dream shoe in 1999. In fact this whole Alicia Vikander look is peek teen Emma and I love everything about it. Vikander is one of the Louis Vuitton campaign stars who attended the Resort 2017 Rio de Janeiro show at the weekend and the location is a stunner. You can view the collection here.From Rio to the UK and the Lady Dior Pub as part of the Dior Express which ended with the Resort collection getting showcased at Blenheim Palace. Kiernan Shipka looks every level of joyful in a red turtleneck and the photos of her from this event give the impression that she is having the best time. Which I adore. Kate Mara’s white frock is also pretty great (which I would personally avoid for spilling reasons) and maybe there will be a lot more Dior in the yes red carpet column over this award season. Maybe. Also where is JLaw? Okay so the next two outfits are from last week, but somehow I missed them and much like polka dots I am here for all the star print ensembles; Rose Byrne in Fall 2016 Valentino ticks all these boxes. Diane Kruger’s mini Marc Jacobs dress is giving me Etsy disco ball vibes and she is crushing her red carpet choices as per at the Sky premiere in Berlin.
There isn’t so much on set action this week as most shows are on some form of hiatus, but we still have plenty of behind the scenes treats including the UnREAL press tour, Vulture Fest, some new exciting projects, lots of glam and the odd bit of TV making magic.
Dream pairing alert and can someone cast Lupita Nyong’o and Gina Rodriguez in something? Please and thank you. Bonus excellent outfit points.
And it’s double Lupita and Gina as I couldn’t pick between the two photos. This one also gives a better look at Gina Rodriguez’s hiatus hair (and here’s a more dramatic angle) and I love it so much. Such a bold and fantastic cut.
I am behind on every podcast I listen to at the moment, but I am very excited to hear this one from Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson aka 2 Dope Queens from Vulture Fest (which pretty much had my dream lineup).
More Kevin Garvey Leftovers beard evidence (and according to the panel they have just finished shooting the Texas section of season 3).
A before Vulture Fest getting ready shot from Carly Chaikin and this is kinda making me want to figure out how to use Snapchat (my username is frazbelina). Also for more from the Mr Robot panel head here.
We have to wait until August 31 for season 3 of You’re the Worst so for now enjoy this collection of photos from the Vulture Fest Pop Culture Trivia Game Show.
While we’re at it here is a nice reminder of way back when and that shooting season 3 will be underway very soon.
Puppy heaven on The Late Show for Emilia Clarke (love her green dress) and she discussed the recent Free the D Game of Thrones moment. I’m not exactly sure this is what was being asked for (no one wants to hear about warts) but I guess it is a start?
Shiri Appleby didn’t get to play with puppies, but she did pose with this Late Show cushion and the UnREAL cast are doing an excellent job on the Instagram promo front with plenty of photos.
Cute dresses and shoes ahoy! And we are under two weeks away from new UnREAL (returns Monday, June 6).
I am also beyond excited about this and Jenny Slate’s outfit is pretty much the platonic ideal of casual wear. Can never go wrong with jeans, Cons, a grey sweater and sunglasses.
This week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes” should be renamed “Things I Am Very Excited About.”
Priyanka Chopra flies in gown style when hopping from one event to another and this also reminds me that I am about 5 episodes behind on Quantico (I am behind on so much). This dress/color on her is fantastic.
LadySuitWatch2016 alert! Anne Hathaway was in the fantastic Jenny Lewis video for “One of the Guys” and here she is giving a nod to Lewis in custom Jenny Packham while promoting Alice Through the Looking Glass.
Allison Williams’ style is morphing into Marnie on the final season of Girls while Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke are accidentally twinning in very similar checks.
Cush Jumbo and Adrienne C. Moore are currently performing in an all-female production of The Taming of the Shrew and there are plenty of ways to adapt Shakespeare as the above clip shows.
Lots of returning shows, endings, beginnings and other pivotal TV moments captured on Instagram this week. With a dash of Coachella, style highs and other on (and off) set shenanigans.
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is back and unlike Daredevil
S2 I haven’t stalled at the halfway mark (I’ll get back to Daredevil, but there are just so many other shows taking priority right now). Kimmy starts off on the patchy side as one early plot doesn’t quite stick the landing, but the jokes are stacked and so wonderfully random at times. I am still thinking about the Rob Kardashian sock designer reference. Kimmy’s style has given me lots of inspiration for spring and Anna Camp is an A+ guest star choice.
And while we’re on the subject of amazing Kimmy Schmidt guest stars; I yelled WHAT?! so loud at my screen that I had to rewind the scene. Everything about this moment from the deconstruction of Dawson’s Creek to that haircut and costume is perfect.
Season 5 of Girls has been a triumph from Marnie’s wedding to Marnie’s one night adventure all the way to the two-part finale which got me misty eyed on several occasions. One surprise this season was how much they leaned into the Jessa/Adam pairing much to my delight and here Adam Driver definitely has his fighting face at the ready.
Where one thing ends, another begins and while this week marked the end of season 5 for us as the audience, the Girls team started production on season 6 with their first table read.
Game of Thrones returns this week and it is a testament to the HBO promo department that even after last year’s mostly disappointing season I am so hyped for Sunday. Michiel Huisman posting this very vacation looking snap also helps.
Sticking with the GoT theme and Maisie Williams’ collar and lipstick game is strong.
From the adorable on the Jane the Virgin set.
To the very surreal and slightly creepy (depending on how you feel about clowns).
While we’re on the subject of creepy here are some of the alternate masks for new clone M.K. on Orphan Black and the new season kicked off on a high. I also wrote an essay about Orphan Black, The Americans and identity; I would love you to read it.
There has been a lot of Coachella on Instagram this week and Amandla Stenberg is avoiding all the fashion cliches of this festival looking cool as fuck in this very 90s look. Not a choker or flower crown in sight. And this could easily be a new print ad for Calvin Klein; it is that good.
Aya Cash and Kether Donohue’s version of Coachella is much more my speed.
Looking like the back of a gown on Say Yes to the Dress with Aaron Tveit on a photo shoot.
Alison Wright got to wear a wig on TV this week; nope Martha hasn’t gone undercover and instead this is for the HBO movie Confirmation. Here is Wright with co-star Wendell Pierce.
Another costume stunner from Salvador Perez on The Mindy Project.
This is all very exciting and I am so ready for season 2 of UnREAL.
Busy Philipps giving me so many Freaks and Geeks related feelings. The instant I see that blue coat it makes me so very happy. The caption here is also excellent.
While I’m dealing with feelings, here seems like a good place to end this week.
