Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Jun

It’s another red carpet “Out of the Box” with plenty of premieres and a special visit delivering some excellent looks. As the previous edition focused entirely on the Critics’ Choice Awards, there are going to be a few photos from other events that took place last week.

GoT the QueenOne significant and unusual public appearance from this week involved the Queen (on a trip around Northern Ireland) visiting the set of Game of Thrones and meeting some of the cast – yes I really hope Lena Headey is explaining just who Cersei is – including a statuesque Sophie Turner, a newly bobbed Maisie Williams (sadly not in this picture), Rose Leslie in a dress I adore, Kit Harington looking dapper and Conleth Hill with a lot more hair than his character. The Queen didn’t sit on the Iron Throne, but she was presented with a miniature version and seemed rather amused by the whole thing. Maybe she does watch the show after all (someone find out what’s on the Buckingham Palace DVR please).

Diane KrugerThe Bridge returns for season 2 next month (July 9) and I’m looking forward to the return of the show (plus this jacket) and all the Diane Kruger public appearances as she rarely has a sartorial off day. Yellow pumps and polka dots are pretty much my catnip so this was always going to be a winner even with the cropped aspect. I really like the slightly different sized dotty effect of the Roland Mouret top and skirt. Both hair and makeup are looking fresh and relaxed.

Ellie KemperEllie Kemper looks super cute in a Pankaj and Nidhi printed dress and blue flats – maybe this look needs heels, but I am all for Kemper’s choice – at the The Came Together premiere.

America FerreraIt feels like America Ferrera has been promoting How to Train Your Dragon 2 for months now, however she has delivered on the red carpet looks time and time again (she’s been an “Out of the Box” regular). This time she’s looking summer chic in a Dolce & Gabbana white lace dress. Kim Sears wore a similar (but much more affordable) version of this dress by Reiss at Wimbledon on Monday.

Keri RussellKeri Russell delivers a different kind of summer style at the Coach Summer Party and the leather mini/striped tank combo is an excellent one. Stripes really are the key to relaxed and funky outfits. Love the dash of pink lip color.

Lean Headey and Matthew RhysAt the top I mentioned some of these events are from last week, well this is a couple of weeks old and yet I really wanted to include this shot from the Variety Studio day as I really love Lena Headey’s super cool casual three quarter length denims and pale blue shirt look. Lena Headey is one of these people who looks amazing dressed up, but her dressed down style is where she shines. Matthew Rhys is also rather suave even if he is in an awkward facial hair phase (which is so much better at the Critics’ Choice Awards).

Gwendoline+Christie+Inside+Fragrance+Foundation+ck0BpOiDS8RlMore Game of Thrones cast members (and I’m finally all caught up) with Gwendoline Christie serving up some flamingo realness in Giles at the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards. This is a really fun dress and I love that at 6ft 3in, Christie is still wearing heels.

Kit Harington Covers Wonderland’s Fashion Issue

27 Aug

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington covers the new fashion issue of Wonderland magazine and he looks like he got a little bit wet in the process. The issue hits newsstands September 5 and also features Downton Abbey’s Lily James.

Once again I am reminded that I have a rather large hole in my TV viewing as I still haven’t seen any Game of Thrones (or Downton Abbey for that matter) something that I hope to rectify by the start of season four – I have no excuses really as the DVDs for the first two seasons are sitting on my shelf. Before Game of Thrones returns Harington will appear in Pompeii as an enslaved gladiator alongside Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris and Emily Browning. The film is due for release in February 2014 and Harington will get to flex his fighting skills, an erupting volcano might be a hard target to defeat (and I’m pretty sure we all know the story of Pompeii).
