Best of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards: Sequins and all that Shines

9 Jan

The Golden Globes red carpet highlights started with a few of my favorite things – ladysuits, yellow, capes, IRL besties – and now for a trend that is also on this list and dominated the night; sequins, sparkles and all things metallic.ruth-negga-ggRuth Negga looks like she has been dipped in liquid Louis Vuitton gold and has come to save us from it all.emma-stoneWhen describing this Valentino dress Golden Globe winner Emma Stone mentioned that it is pink and has stars on it. Two very correct observations and a dream of a gown. kristen-bellSequins, sequins, sequins in all colors and styles with Kristen Bell giving great drama (and sternum) in black Jenny Packham.amy-adamsAmy Adams looks like she might be ready to go into a very stylish battle in a strapless Tom Ford. So many Cersei feelings (if Cersei ever chose to switch to sequins).claire-foyI don’t quite love this Claire Foy Erdem gown as much as I love her pre-party look, but is super pretty and I’m not even mad she beat Keri Russell. Well not a whole lot mad as I think she’s great in The Crown.regina-kingRegina King is a sparkling dream in Romona Keveza and this strapless dress might be one the best things she has worn on the red carpet.naomie-harrisNaomie Harris looks like she has come from the future to team up with Ruth Negga in a futuristic looking Armani Privé gown.priyanka-chopraFrom silver to gold and Priyanka Chopra never fails to bring it; the Golden Globes is no exception and this Ralph Lauren gown is a stunner.sarah-paulson-and-amanda-peetMore IRL BFF goals with Sarah Paulson shining in Marc Jacobs gold as she picked up yet another well deserved award for her incredible Marcia Clark performance.

Amanda Peet also looks fabulous here and I’m still sad Togetherness is no more. And that my DVD of Igby Goes Down is missing.felicity-huffmannNow for something different and Felicity Huffman’s white and gold George Chakra is a fabulous take on formal jumpsuits.gina-rodriguezA getting ready shot of Gina Rodriguez from Instagram had Twitter all a fluster for good reason:

 

And this Naeem Khan gown looks perfect for twirling and shimmying in at the after parties.thandie-newtonSometimes sequins are here to add a touch of drama and in the case of Thandie Newton they look like flames at the bottom of her Monse gown.sterling-k-brown

Sterling K. Brown didn’t win much to my surprise/sadness, but he looks cool as fuck here and his wife Ryan Michelle Bathe is stunning in David Meister.

Screen Queens of The Edit: Tracee Ellis Ross, Cynthia Nixon, Kristen Bell and Michelle Monaghan Talk TV

29 Nov

TV issues of magazines are up there with roundtable discussions in how much I enjoy them (which is to say a lot) and Net-A-Porter’s weekly online magazine The Edit has produced a ‘Screen Queens’ issue featuring Tracee Ellis Ross, Cynthia Nixon, Kristen Bell and Michelle Monaghan to talk all things TV and wear some of the latest fashions.

The thing with The Edit is that it is linked directly to the Net-A-Porter site so you can shop the issue with ease (if your bank balance permits and you are in the mood for a splurge) and there are a whole lot of ladysuit and sequin delights in this editorial. net-a-porterAs well as the Q&A’s with each actress there are also videos on the Net-A-Porter YouTube channel (and below) amounting to about an episode of a network drama and this is exactly the kind of thing I am after as they discuss the topics that typically come up on these things; diversity, ageism, sexism and equality.

This is also a good cross section of TV actresses covering a variety of shows – that they are currently on/have previously starred in – to the platforms they air on with network, cable and streaming all represented.

We are very much in the throes of movie award season, but this doesn’t mean there isn’t space to talk all things TV and you can watch the discussion below.

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.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

15 Aug

Movie premieres featuring TV husband and wife adorableness, street style, talk show appearances, a sneak peek at new web series and a HFPA event are all included in this edition of “Out of the Box.” Alas there is nothing from the Teen Choice Awards, but the sea of crop tops was kind of uninspiring and even Taylor Swift has been wearing better outfits when leaving the gym (and on The Tonight Show as you will see below).

Aubrey and ChrisOne thing that is always guaranteed to warm my heart is when cast members show their support for their co-stars other projects. Chris Pratt has of course had a huge week with the monstrous success of Guardians of the Galaxy so he is forgiven for ditching tailored suits – I think I like this rugged style better on him anyway – for a more relaxed look at the LA premiere of Aubrey Plaza’s Life After Beth. Plaza has been making some interesting red carpet choices recently and this floral lace Valentino frock is another one I love as both Plaza and her character April Ludgate continue to reign supreme here at TV Ate My Wardrobe.

Kate MaraThe color and cut of Kate Mara’s dress is pretty much my ideal (yellow is an ultimate clothing weakness). Paired with shades, a Coach bag, white Jil Sander buckled loafers and an iced drink makes effortless summer in the city styling.

taylor swiftTaylor Swift has turned leaving the gym into something of a catwalk and she delivered when visiting The Tonight Show earlier this week in a Bec & Bridge dress that is giving me all the long legged envy. Also the ability to walk in super stacked Prada sandals without stumbling/falling into an embarrassing heap. Still not sure about the shaggy, voluminous hair as it’s looking a touch bad ’80s, however the dash of pink lip color avoids being too matchy matchy with the similar shade on the dress. Jimmy continues the trend for striking purple ties this week.

Who's ready for some #privatedick ? #veronicamars @cw_network

A post shared by Ryan Hansen (@hiryanhansen) on

It was announced earlier this week on Buzzfeed that the Veronica Mars team are coming back with a web series and creator Rob Thomas explains it “will have more in common with Party Down tonally, but it will be about Ryan Hansen, or at least a version of Ryan Hansen, deciding to capitalize on the current Veronica Mars heat to get his own series on the air.” This is terrific news as I need to find something to fill the Party Down hole in my life; Ryan Hansen shared a sneak look at what we can maybe expect from this show on his Instagram and it is glorious.

Kerry Washigton and Kristen BellOh hey, Veronica Mars! Kristen Bell with a lovely bouquet of flowers and a rather fetching companion at the HFPA Grants Banquet in LA. Kerry Washington’s strapless Mary Katrantzou floral number is sweet without entering saccharine territory; pairing it with pumps that have colorful edge makes me so happy. No beige shoes here.
