Out of the Box: Look of the Week

21 Jul

Comic-Con kicked off yesterday and we have a few looks from panels and events. If Sundance is my favorite winter event when it comes to celeb casual fashion, then SDCC might be my fave summer event. I’ve said it before, but while I love a fancy gown, a more casual environment is what I really look forward to; these are the ones that actually influence what I might wear.

This is a bumper “Out of the Box” as Disney gave us a star-studded pattern extravaganza at D23 from the casts of A Wrinkle in TimeStar Wars and those who have voiced Disney princesses over the last 30 years.

Patterns continue at the Valerian premiere and magazines continue to crush the excellent cover/editorial game.One of the most exciting things to come out of D23 was the new trailer for A Wrinkle in Time and everyone looks fabulous. Coordinated without being matchy matchy and delivering on daytime looks to applaud. The trailer is also a costume design lovers dream.

Ava DuVernay gives both bold print dress in Prada and fabulous pumps, super summery Isabel Marant for Reese Witherspoon, Oprah is delivering on fancy office vibes/I want those glasses and the best outfit from the ladies comes courtesy of Storm Reid in a Chloe pinafore frock and striped blouse.

In the all-important matter of the Chris List, Pine has been top of mine since Wet Hot American Summer and the salt and pepper beard he’s working, cements that position. This Hokusaï wave print Sandro shirt is fabulous and I would very much like the sweatshirt version. And shopping the men’s section during the sales is how I end up with so many excellent striped t-shirts.The Force Awakens press tour is a major highlight from the recent slew of blockbuster franchises with a big cast; it was both fun and everyone looked great. It wasn’t about playing it safe and the fashion choices were never boring.

New cast additions include Queen Laura Dern – who along with Nicole Kidman is having A YEAR – and Kelly Marie Tran. Tran’s first Star Wars related appearance a couple of months ago had us hailing her as one to look out for and she does not disappoint once again. Laura Dern’s frock is giving me some ’70s feelings and it will not shock you when I say that I love it.

The new behind the scenes footage released at D23 is delightful and emotional; it is safe to say the room got a little dusty when I watched it.
Regular readers will know how I feel about ladysuits and Gwendoline Christie so this right in my wheelhouse. It looks great in motion and everything about this soothes me. I still miss Selfie and can’t help but think of this wonderful and underappreciated show whenever Karen Gillan appears on this site. What I love about this look is the Miu Miu frock is nearing the maybe too fancy for this event end, but is balanced with understated hair and makeup.

Eliza would probably have something to say about this. The shoes she would approve of. I am a fan of all of this.The new Wreck-It Ralph movie gave Disney a reason to celebrate the women who have voiced princesses over the last 30 plus years. Princess is not defined by who wears a crown.

So much color and pattern! Here is the full line-up from left to right:

Paige O’Hara (Belle – Beauty and the Beast), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel – Tangled), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Sarah Silverman (Vanellope von Schweetz – Wreck-It Ralph), Kristen Bell (Anna – Frozen), Kelly Macdonald (Merida – Brave), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana – The Princess and the Frog), Linda Larkin (Jasmin – Aladdin), and Jodi Benson (Ariel – The Little Mermaid).
Kelly Macdonald’s simple blouse paired with a floral skirt is giving all the heart eyed emoji reactions. It is low-key and yet super stylish. Perfect for this event. Great lipstick too.
I’ve listened to the Moana soundtrack while writing on numerous occasions and Auli’i Cravalho’s voice is an instant pick me up. This is like the photo version of that.And I very much want to grab a cocktail with Anika Noni Rose.Timeless is alive – much to my delight – and Abigail Spencer pattern clashes in a floral frock with leopard print pumps. I wholeheartedly approve.Lots of short shorts and heels at SDCC and Daredevil’s Élodie Yung is giving me starry short sleeve sweater envy. The choppy bob looks great on her. One problem with panel fashion is not getting a full body shot. TV Ate My Wardrobe style queen, Aubrey Plaza is also opting for shorts and giving great two-toned levels of purple. This reminds me that half a season of Legion is still sitting on my DVR unwatched.At the Valerian premiere Natalie Morales – star of another gone to soon sitcom, oh hey Trophy Wife – is another vision, in a textured pattern Rivini. So many different purple shades this week and the berry sandals are perfect for this frock.Interview Magazine continues to be good to us and Tatiana Maslany chats with Uzo Aduba about playing multiple characters on Orphan Black including one of my favorite things this show does; when one clone plays another. About this Maslany explains:

“Those moments are the greatest joy. I get to play with all of the things that we do as people where we see somebody a certain way, we judge somebody, we empathize with something in someone—all of the judgments, good and bad, that we have of people and how that makes us behave. If Sarah is playing Alison, Sarah’s judgments about Alison, the impression that she gets and the impersonation that she does. I like playing with the artifice of it and letting the mistakes and the cracks seep through.”

The whole interview is wonderful and Aduba is clearly a member of the Clone Club. It is also another great photo shoot from this publication and it is a picture worthy of an art gallery. The above portrait reminds me of a recent Orphan Black costume highlight.Also worthy of a gallery; this whole Ruth Negga velvet themed editorial for The Edit. In the piece she talks about award season campaigns and how she’s taking a break from work. The question of family arises because she’s an actress in her mid-thirties, but it doesn’t come across in the whole grating “can a woman have it all?” kind of way.Ruth Negga is always a red carpet highlight and she gives major props to her stylist, Karla Welch saying “She’s a huge feminist, and that was important. I don’t have time to go to the gym, and she dresses my body in a way that’s going to give me confidence. I like a sleeve, I like a high neck, that’s my style.”

 

As with all shoots from The Edit they produce a handy link to shop all the pieces. Sadly they do not provide the bank balance to pay for them.Gifting us with a fun and super stylish cover is Bust and yes I have strong coat and floral summer dress envy. Fall and summer fashion coming together and Gina Rodriguez is making my heart sing here. Bonus appearance by her pooch, Casper.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Jul

A relatively quiet week because of the 4th of July celebrations (giving me a good reason to wax lyrical about the 1970s sartorial treasure trove that is Jaws), but thankfully Paris Couture Week means some stars were out in the sun in their designer finest. Plus some movie premieres and more magazine highlights.

Elsewhere you can read my thoughts about why Tulip from Preacher is one to watch for summer fashion inspiration and this fun rendition of “Wannabe” courtesy of TV stars and W Magazine.Starting with Dior and this is a really great look on Kirsten Dunst. It is very much in her style wheelhouse; embroidered hearts and stars combined with the tulle and polka dot sheer aspects give off a romantic dreamy vibe.  Celine Dion is living her best life at the Dior show and it makes me very happy to see her like this.Aziz Ansari goes casual at Chanel and this looks perfect for Master of None. If/when we get a third season. Part of the reason I picked this photo of Julianne Moore at Chanel is because of the pockets and they really do make a lot of dresses (especially daytime frocks) so much better. I am thrilled Netflix has got into the movie releasing game because it makes projects such as Okja and The Incredible Jessica James (available to stream July 28) so much more accessible. Yes, I would always prefer to see a new release in the cinema, but sometimes that isn’t an option with how far wide something gets distributed.

At the premiere for The Incredible Jessica James, TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Jessica Williams keeps it simple, but bold in Tibi. Such a strong summer look.

Happy 4th! Have a dog!

A post shared by @lauradern on

There was no Taylor huge shindig this year, but who needs that when we get the best Instagram material from Laura Dern. My only concern here is how close Justin Theroux’s hot dog – insert dirty sounding cackle here – to those white jeans.Fall fashion in magazines, even if it is super hot and no one does a coat editorial better than Idris Elba. The whole Esquire shoot is fabulous and the interview covers his extensive TV and film career with input from The Wire creator David Simon. It is an interesting chat that looks at his past, family and body of work while nodding toward those Bond rumors that will no doubt continue until the next actor is chosen for the iconic part.

Fun fact – this exact time last year, Elba appeared on Look of the Week for another flaming hot magazine shoot.The Edit is also looking to fall and everything about Lena Headey’s plaid and tweed infused highland editorial is my dream. The Game of Thrones promo onslaught is upon us and I am so ready for season 7.

Going all in with their GoT coverage at The Edit, as Maisie Williams conducts the interview with her co-star (not that they have appeared in scene together since season 1). It is pretty informal, but also touches on some serious topics including Headey’s postnatal depression that she had during the first season and the charity work they have done together. She also talks about the emotional reaction she had to a major death last season and the perils of wearing big gowns on set.   

Talking Drama with Justin Theroux, Laura Dern, Regina King and Milo Ventimiglia

7 Jun

Emmy roundtable season is well and truly here, aka that time of year when it is easy to fall down a YouTube hole watching all your TV faves talking about your TV faves. The format is different depending on the outlet with The Hollywood Reporter being the go to for the drama actressesVariety getting the actors to interview each other and Goldderby doing their one-on-one Google Hangout thing. And I am a sucker for them all.

The only Google news alert I have set up happens to be “Emmy Roundtable.” Yes, really. So when I got an email to tell me that the LA Times drama discussion was up I instantly hit the link and was thrilled to see this line-up. Whereas THR separates actors and actress, the LA Times mixes it up and I am glad that both options are available as talking points can be very different. Justin Theroux, Laura Dern, Regina King and Milo Ventimiglia sit down with L.A. Times’ Greg Braxton to talk about the shows they are on as well as a number of other topics such as the potential writers’ strike (this was obviously recorded before the WGA deal was brokered).

There is an obvious rapport between Theroux, Dern and King as they have all worked together before and it gives an extra level of intimacy – see Dern/Theroux replaying a Lynch kiss – to proceedings. Regina King is there to discuss American Crime, but she is also very much part of The Leftovers family and so this also comes into play particularly when discussing co-star Carrie Coon.

They talk process with Milo Ventimiglia pointing to how his prep for the big fight scene in the This is Us finale was different to how he worked with Mandy Moore for the rest of the season, saying goodbye to characters, whether they watch their work and there’s a whole lot of praise for those behind the camera. The latter is something Carrie Coon also mentions in detail in her recent interview with Alan Sepinwall and I am here for this.

Watch the whole thing below.

Also as a style aside, I am very much all the heart eyes at Laura Dern’s polka dots. Because, of course.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

2 Jun

“Out of the Box” was on a break last week while I was away, which means I missed quite a lot of Cannes coverage – though not Top of the Lake – and so there is a little bit of overspill here.

Emmy campaign season has really kicked off now with more FYC events and The Hollywood Reporter’s roundtable series. So it is pretty much my favorite time of year. Plus various other events from the week, delivering sartorial delights.Kirsten Dunst in an outfit I would consider too good for a flight – hoodie all the way – but when you’re flying in for Cannes it makes sense to up the chic levels and this is doing that on a casual level. Leaning into a late ’70s angle (my fave style decade) and I pretty much want this whole ensemble. Also, hey Landry! At the Beguiled premiere there was a sense of gown coordination from Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst without being too matchy matchy. It has also come to my attention that other than the snuggling up daytime photocall posing, I am very much here for these arms raised shots from behind (more below).

Basically, Cannes is great for dramatic red carpet posing that would look a little ridiculous elsewhere.  And for the festival best besties I give you more coordination without appearing too coordinated and also at the Beguiled premiere.

Gwendoline Christie and Elisabeth Moss looked they were having the most fun together and I look forward to a lot more from this pair as they continue to promote Top of the Lake.In unsurprising news Isabelle Huppert looking cool as fuck in floaty florals and shades, at the Happy End daytime photocall. As you are probably more than aware, Twin Peaks is back and while she has yet to appear in the first four episodes, Laura Dern crushed it at the LA premiere in a slightly bonkers mixed texture/pattern Rodarte frock. As all Dale Cooper fans will know, Kyle MacLachlan can sure wear a suit.A glass of wine and a rooftop party in New York City sounds pretty perfect to me right now as I huddle over my computer in a very warm apartment.

At the People Book Expo 2017 celebration, Gabrielle Union and Janet Mock look fabulous in this setting serving up great daytime event style.

You know I love a hotel corridor pose (see 50% of Elisabeth Moss’ Insta posts) and the Mad Men cast give great hotel corridor pose. Alison Brie continues this trend while promoting her new Netflix show Glow – which I am super excited for – in this very ’70s looking Bella Freud frock.Keri Russell loves a leather pant and after getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Russell changed up her outfit to something slightly more edgy for her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! I’m just thrilled to see The Leftovers cast look this happy as they pose at an Emmy FYC event and I am so not ready for the finale this weekend. There will be weepingSpeaking of Emmys and it is time to sound the Hollywood Reporter roundtable klaxon! Kicking off with a whole lot of handsome dudes in suits; mostly looking at you Riz, Sterling, Ewan and Jeffrey. What I am of course really waiting for is the drama actress outing (sorry guys) as this always delivers.

But there are some interesting conversations to be had here, particularly from Riz Ahmed, Sterling K. Brown and Jeffrey Wright as they discuss the importance of representation and being seen beyond stereotypes. Another pre-Emmy annual highlight from The Hollywood Reporter is the supporting actor class photo which features a mix of performers from comedy and drama. Notable style highlights here include the women in various shades of red – Samira Wiley, Aisha Hinds, Alison Wright, Ali Wong, Aubrey Plaza – patterned dress delights from Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rose Byrne, and Insecure’s Jay Ellis being the number one dapper gentleman.

Laura Dern Talks Big Little Lies, Enlightened and Working with David Lynch

16 May

The gap between film and TV award season chatter feels like it gets smaller every year and I am thrilled that this time of year is upon us. To the extent that I even wondered out loud (or rather on Twitter), which Big Little Lies cast member will take part in The Hollywood Reporter’s roundtable discussion.

Another go to source for all things awards is Goldderby and their interview series constantly delivers on in-depth interviews with actors and creatives who might be hearing their names called come nomination day (July 13). This is when I fall down a YouTube hole and the next thing I know it is a couple of hours later; they tend to run around the twenty minute mark and this is pretty much the ideal length for getting sucked in.One of the best shows from this awards year is Big Little Lies and it is one I keep returning to in terms of how much time it is occupying conversations and thought space. Plus I’ve been pretty much listening to the soundtrack on a daily basis. It is also one of the reasons why the mini-series category looks set to be one of the most interesting and while there is talk of a potential second season (this gets touched on in the interview below) it is pretty much perfect as it is. Even though we live in a time when anything can be resurrected it doesn’t mean it should.

Which brings me to this interview with Laura Dern and unsurprisingly Dern is a delight offering up thoughts on why Big Little Lies resonated, everything she loves about playing Renata and working with a lot of the Wild team again. Dern also talks about characters it has been hard saying goodbye too and what she says will likely please fans of Enlightened.

There is also the small matter of teaming up with David Lynch again for the Twin Peaks revival and as I already mentioned any TV show can come back.

Award recognition and what this attention means in terms of the visibility of a project also comes into play especially as there are so many shows to consume right now.

Laura Dern also reminds me that I still need to watch Enlightened and I don’t know why I haven’t done this already.

Look out for more award season chatter on TV Ate My Wardrobe in the next few months.

Best of the Met Gala 2017: The Americans, Big Little Lies and More

2 May

More Met Gala and for the attendees who went big in honoring Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons head here. That’s not to say the second part of this rundown doesn’t feature strong nods to the theme, which definitely has room for interpretation, but there are definitely fewer ‘out there’ looks.

We do have treats from the casts of Big Little LiesThe Americans and some super handsome dudes in suits among others. Getting the best dressed couple title is Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as they mix things up in custom Rag & Bone. The coat tails twist on the lady suit is giving off strong ringmaster vibes and I am super partial to a kilt; this is how to a couples theme without looking too matchy matchy.

Great smoky eyes on Keri Russell too, which adds to the whole effect.

Not one, but three of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s three best dressed dudes all together and super stylist Ilaria Urbinati is good to us. Rami’s red is Dior (obvs), Riz is in also in Dior and Donald (my fave suit of the three) nods to Comme des Garçon in Burberry.

Now someone needs to cast this trifecta of swoon inducing dudes in a movie together. Please and thank you.Michael B. Jordan is another guy you can rely on to avoid the black tux doldrums and this Ralph Lauren plaid number looks fit for Hannibal, which is another way of me saying I love it.Entering the Big Little Lies portion of this post and Reese Witherspoon is serving up Joan Collins levels of dramatic shoulder in asymmetric Mulger playing with form.Zoë Kravitz knows how to make a mark in a romantic custom Oscar de la Renta gown complete with real roses. This manages to be super modern with a classic twist and Kravitz’s new blonde pixie cut gives this an edge.When you worship at the alter of Laura Dern it is fine to ignore that this is one of the many looks that isn’t really going all in on the theme, but between the cutouts and the polka dot train I am obviously here for this custom Gabriela Hearst.Another floral take and Lupita is radiant in coral Prada. Also appearing on Jessica Chastain’s A+ Met Gala Instagram Stories and with Rihanna in the background a good reminder of the film event we could be enjoying in the future.

And because I love a getting ready BTS.An optical illusion from Elizabeth Banks in custom Michael Kors and I am just as mesmerized by the height of her heels. I would also be pulling this face if I was walking up this many stairs in these shoes. A red carpet best from Lena Dunham in gingham Elizabeth Kennedy with a fabulous silhouette, makeup and hair to boot. She also has a pair of boots beneath the layers of fabric.

As was mentioned on Twitter another theme of this Met Gala was people who have previously lamented about how much they hate this event and yet they’re back for more. Ultimate FOMO I guess. This Chanel is beautiful, but definitely more of an award season frock rather than a Met Gala one. But Brie looks great and she also got caught up in this bathroom moment.

I needed to go the bathroom and ended up famous.

A post shared by Brie (@brielarson) on

Her face says it all.

Dakota Johnson looks like she’s on a widow revenge mission in custom Gucci and I’m here for it.One final moment of dramatic staircase posing and Daisy Ridley’s custom Oscar de la Renta isn’t quite the out there number I was hoping from her, but she’s working it.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Apr

Award season is never truly over and the GLAAD Media Awards delivers on some fantastic black and white ensembles. Plus a whole lot of stripes, IRL friendships and some heartbreak in this edition of “Out of the Box.”Judith Light serving up her usual red carpet domination thanks to the drama of the shoulders/abs and that fabulous ring at the GLAAD Media Awards.White gowns were on trend for the Transparent cast and Trace Lysette looks fabulous posing with Moonlight writer Tarell Alvin McCraney as he switches out his white Oscar tux for this dashing number. Moonlight won Outstanding Film and Transparent was awarded Outstanding Comedy Series. While we’re on the subject of dashing and Moonlight here is Trevante Rhodes giving great floral and patterned tie at the GLAAD Media Awards.Tatiana Maslany has done the post-show ending hair chop and I love this length on her. Going for a fun spin on the ladysuit with a tee and fancy shoes; plus some pins supporting great causes.

The ‘&’ pin is from GLAAD and was worn by many in attendance. The other is for Planned Parenthood and can be purchased here; there’s a lot of great pins at the moment and ones which raise awareness and funds are even better.

In keeping with the Planned Parenthood theme as this tank by Otherwild also includes a donation. This photo was taken by Tatiana Maslany’s Orphan Black co-star Kristian Bruun and is classic casual Maslany. Also her hair continues to look great.More in the co-stars hanging out department with the Mr Robot siblings at the Montblanc and UNICEF gala dinner at the New York Public Library (what a location to have a dinner). Rami Malek takes his shirt game to the next level and once again Ilaria Urbinati gives him a great suit to wear.

I also sometimes forget that Malek and Carly Chaikin aren’t really brother and sister because look at them. Good work Mr Robot casting team.

Big Little Lies is all I can think about (for my deep dive into the Audrey Hepburn costumes head here) and the IRL friendship between Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern is everything. Reese gifted us with four different shots of them on the beach and yes this is my current phone lock screen photo.Sarah Steele makes everything better and I’m so glad they brought Marissa Gold back for the The Good Fight. At the Speech & Debate premiere Steele does the whole casual cool vibe and this is a fun take on stripes that I now definitely want in my closet.

A post shared by Elisabeth Moss (@elisabethmossofficial) on

I am very excited about The Handmaid’s Tale adaptation and all the Elisabeth Moss this is going to give us on the promo tour. Not to mention that we’ve got a second Top of the Lake season to look forward to. This Michael Kors ensemble gives great stripes and also showcases how great stylist Karla Welch’s eye is.At Kimmel (not in the outfit she wore on the show) and Jenny Slate is clearly loving her Rachel Comey shoes (the TV Ate My Wardrobe jury is still out). The rest of Slate’s outfit makes me want to drink cocktails somewhere in Cape Cod and I’m also thrilled to see a regular looking shirt after reading this recent Racked piece. And as the Fug Girls like to say; everyone looks hotter in sunglasses.The end of this week’s “Out of the Box” is sponsored by all the feelings and great outfits. Both in Dolce & Gabbana (they are both clients of other stylist fave Ilaria Urbinati) and both fantastic. Anyway, I’m gonna go reread Jada Yuan’s Vulture profile of Slate because it really is the best.

Best of the 2017 Golden Globes: Black, White, Dudes in Suits and Print

9 Jan

Our final post in the scroll heavy day after the Golden Globes red carpet highlights rundown. There are a lot of really amazing looks and here you will find the best black and white dresses, some suit treats and a bit of bold pattern. For more from our Golden Globe coverage head here and here.issa-raeIssa Rae looks incredible in a long sleeve custom Christian Siriano; this is how you do white to an awards show without coming across bridal. janelle-monaeMullet dresses tend to be an instant no for me, but not in the case of Janelle Monáe who is working her signature black and white palette with aplomb in custom Armani Privé. Texture and material mixing never looked better.rachel-bloomGood news for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend fans as a season renewal was announced yesterday prior to the Golden Globes and nominee Rachel Bloom does black with a floral twist in another custom Christian Siriano.

Glover was the standout guy on the red carpet (h/t our guy stylist fave Ilaria Urbinati) in brown velvet Gucci. This is ’70s inspiration at its best.riz-ahmedAnd now for a classic tux from Riz Ahmed in Dolce and Gabbana.laura-dernThere weren’t a lot of standout prints at the Globes this year, but Laura Dern left her mark in floral Burberry.keri-russell-and-matthew-rhysYou don’t often get leopard print during award season and yet Keri Russell is here to show how to incorporate this style by going a bit Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks (TUSK) in her choice of J. Mendel. The choker is obviously an issue for me because chokers, but I love their whole vibe that they bring to the red carpet. See also the reason I have Mouse Rat stuck in my head.

On Monday Netflix announced when season 3 of Orange is the New Black will be available (June 12) allowing us to plan ahead and book the day off work. The cast of OITNB has a huge presence on Instagram and Dascha Polanco went for this cute inventive way to announce this date.

There is so much bad photoshop used on both TV and in movies when it comes to splicing two photographs together and it has a habit of taking you out of the moment (see also using promo photos for what are supposed to be framed family shots and The Americans triumphs in this area by not doing this). Not so on Looking and I totally believe that this is a photo of Doris and Dom from their teen years and not two separate photos of Lauren Weedman and Murray Bartlett. Dom + Doris = ❤

Oscar 2015 Red Carpet Highlights Part 1 – Color and Sparkle

23 Feb

We’ve been talking about award season for months now and after all that build up the Oscars red carpet did not disappoint (okay some disappointed but woah are there plenty of incredible gowns on offer). Part 1 of our best looks is all about color and sparkle, both of which featured heavily at the Golden Globes and continue their reign here. Head here for Part 2.

Emma StoneEmma Stone combines both color and shimmer in a stunning Elie Saab Couture gown. Stone constantly mixes things up on the red carpet and this is another occasion where opting for something unique has paid off. It might be due to a lack of sleep (I apologize for any gibberish that might follow in this post) but I can’t stop staring at this.

Rosamund PikeAnother risk taker and this award season has unfortunately been more miss than hit for Rosamund Pike; for the big one she pulls out the big guns in Givenchy Couture. Elegant and super sexy combined. No need for distracting jewelry.

Julianne MooreCustom Chanel for Julianne Moore and an ideal winners gown; the floral and sequin detail is exquisite.

Laura DernA futuristic looking Alberta Ferretti metallic frock for Laura Dern, which is just as dramatic as her hair flick. If the aliens come I want our armor to look like this.

Ava DuVernayCrushing it in baby blue Prada with bell sleeves and embroidered detail is Ava DuVernay.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin TherouxNo plunging necklines here, instead Jennifer Aniston wears a beaded champagne color Atelier Versace gown that clings in all the right places. Justin, you look very good too.

Lorelei LinklaterA special red lipstick shout out to Lorelei Linklater doing her teen goth thing in style.
