Best of the Emmys 2017 Style: Bold Color and Shimmer

18 Sep

Welcome to the second part of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s Emmy coverage and this is brought to you on four hours sleep and a whole lot of Diet Coke (#notspon).

For all things awards, couples, feathers and more head here. In this post we will be lavishing praise on the colorful and metallic looks of the night. AKA my favorite kind of award show sartorial choices.Pleats make for the best all drama posing and Tessa Thompson in rainbow Rosie Assoulin is quite possibly the best look of the entire night. There’s a bonus ’70s feeling about all of this and I am so ready for the Thor press tour.Viola Davis always gives great vibrant color—it was pink in 2016—and this year’s Emmys are no different. A tangerine dream in custom Zac Posen. One of the show highlights was Tituss Burgess in the Westworld sketch and also this jacket is beyond fantastic.Again the Stranger Things teens continue to show most the adult dudes how it is done; wearing designers from Prada to Ted Baker and Balmain. Getting the edge in the best dressed here is Caleb McLaughlin in a purple brocade Garçon Couture jacket. Nicole Kidman won big on the night in more ways than one as she picked up for Best Actress in a mini-series and as producer on Big Little Lies. She was also wearing maybe her best look of a very busy 2017 in red Calvin Klein by Appointment. Also favoring crimson is Issa Rae in custom Vera Wang; I’m not wild about the sleeves but from the back this dress is divine.If you are a regular watched of Gina Rodriguez’s Instagram Stories then you have probably seen her use a pull up bar on her door frame. It took her a few attempts, but she can now work it like a pro and she even did so in this super sexy Naeem Khan frock. And along with Busy Philipps, she very much makes me want to exercise more.Yara Shahidi once again does something different and you can never predict what red carpet direction she will opt for. This time she goes ethereal in Prada.Last year Sarah Paulson wowed in green sequined Prada and she’s gone the sparkly route again in Carolina Herrera. It doesn’t quite deliver the same knockout levels, but I do love the drama of the puffed out sleeves. For my fave silver sequins of the night look no further than Anna Chlumsky in custom Sachin & Babi.

Chlumsky also gave the best reaction to the worst moment and her very ’90s styling on Halt and Catch Fire is every level flashback inducing.Mixing florals and metallics is Queen Regina King in a plunging Galia Lahav Couture gown and those DVANI diamond starburst earrings are making me wish I had pierced ears.Another flaming hot Naeem Khan dress and Laverne Cox is a dripped in silver delight.Kiernan Shipka has been coming to the Emmys since 2010 and this is an instant way to feel old—as pointed out with this helpful visual from Jarett Wieselmen. This Miu Miu gown is simple, elegant and very pretty.Another teen hitting all the right sartorial notes is Millie Bobby Brown in Calvin Klein by Appointment. This gives off a princess vibe without feeling too saccharine.Millennial pink for Samira Wiley in custom Christian Siriano and I love the cut of this gown.Another very different ladysuit from Evan Rachel Wood in striking wide-legged Jeremy Scott for Moschino. She looks like a fabulous ringmaster.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

15 Sep

After I talked up last week’s bumper “Out of the Box” this one is slightly longer and all the events, they keep on coming; TIFF, NYFW and the Creative Arts Emmys. We have a fun mix of fancy red carpet, daytime attire and even an airport look.

Plus, The X-Files celebrated its 24th anniversary and I wrote about Dana Scully’s influence on TV work wardrobes for The ObserverYou should know by now how I feel about Tatiana Maslany’s style—strongly positive—and she gives great casual and fancy. At the Stronger TIFF premiere, this J. Mendel is of course the latter and the color/ruffles are fantastic. As is Maslany’s dark lipstick choice.

And as I mentioned on Twitter the other day, I am so excited to see her post-Orphan Black career and that her extraordinary talent will reach a wider audience. Mohair sweaters are a quiet obsession of mine and everything about Elisabeth Moss in Rochas, at a screening for The Square is ’50s inspired perfection.

Another fabulous pick from super stylist Karla Welch and I cannot wait to see what Moss will be wearing at the Emmys on Sunday.

Even if Brie Larson’s directorial debut wasn’t called Unicorn Store, I would applaud her airport ensemble—fluffy whimsical sandals aside—and both Larson and fiancé Alex Greenwald look cool af.

Getting ready for @BravoWWHL Tonight at 11 With the brilliant @justinepurdue and @seijinyc @thevampireswife

A post shared by Maggie Gyllenhaal (@mgyllenhaal) on

The Vampire’s Wife is a brand that has been doing very good things of late and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s silver frock continues this trend. Maggie has been crushing it during this press tour for The Deuce.

Also, Maggie addressed one of the important issues of our time (and you get to see how great the sleeves are in this Watch What Happens Live clip).At the New York mother! premiere before this happened with a T-shirt swap, there was a whole lot of couples coordinating between Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. Also on the highly anticipated Emmy red carpet list.
The prelude to the main event and the Creative Arts Emmys—for costume wins head here—delivered with Niecy Nash looking divine in a figure hugging and puffed sleeve scarlet dream.Also in red and giving me so much life is Angela Bassett in Romona Keveza. I’m sad she didn’t win her guest actress in a comedy category for the amazing Thanksgiving episode of Master of None.Serving up super sexy drama in gold and black Mikael D is Laverne Cox. Currently fantasy casting a movie with Cox and Margot Robbie based on their red carpet looks.I was already enamored by Emily V. Gordon’s style and then I watched The Big Sick and fell further in love—the red brain sweater was based on something Emily wore. This is another great red carpet look in floral Self-Portrait and Kumail Namjiani scrubs up well in a midnight blue tux.Moving on to NYFW and it has been a very busy week/month/year for Elisabeth Moss. And another 50s-adjacent look at Kate Spade New York. A brand I very much enjoy (and can almost afford).Florals continue to dominate and at the Refinery29 29Rooms: Turn It Into Art event, Issa Rae and Gabby Sidibe looks like they are having a blast.

Insecure wrapped up its second season with a very strong finale and it has been another season full of great costuming.Obligatory “I still miss The Carrie Diaries” mention because here is Austin Butler—wearing a Radiohead tee—at Jeremy Scott with girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens. Two mohair sweaters in one week! Skai Jackson pairs hers with a burgundy pleated skirt and this outfit at Libertine is pretty much an ideal fall ensemble. Jackson is only 15 and definitely way cooler than me.The Outlander premiere was an emotional watch for me, but I am very glad to have it back and switching out ’50s Boston maternity style for a very cool and colorful look at Delpozo is Caitriona Balfe. Balfe has been having a very good NYFW.Chunky ankle/calf boots are here to stay it would seem and I am more than fine with this dip back to the ’90s trend as previously seen from Louis Vuitton last year. Michelle Monaghan is at Oscar de la Renta and I love the edged up glam of this look.Obligatory “I still miss Selfie” mention and Karen Gillan’s super cute romper at Self-Portrait looks like something Eliza would wear. Plus, more ankle boots to covet.The Christian Siriano front row looked the most fun and I want to have a boozy lunch with all four of these women. And if Leslie Jones could lend me her cape then that would be a bonus.

I’m looking forward to seeing who will be wearing Siriano on Sunday. I’m all about the Emmys right now.In more great fabulous front row news; Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts in coordinating and yet contrasting florals at Michael Kors. Naomi Watts continues to be an Instagram fave.

We found a dock. WHERE YOU AT DAWSON? #wedontwanttowaitforourlivestobeover

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

It is no secret that I am a long time Michelle and Busy fan and I was very excited when Michelle popped up on Busy’s Insta last week. Even more so when they did a whole Dawson’s Creek thing a couple of days after. Which also included this amazing photo.

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week – Best of 2016 Part 1

21 Dec

Taking a TV costuming break for this installment of our Best of 2016 series for a midweek “Out of the Box” special focusing on the best magazine covers of the year.

Each of the covers below has appeared on “Out of the Box” and while publications like Teen VogueBust and Variety have featured on multiple occasions we have picked only one cover per magazine. The twelve chosen don’t quite work on a one per actual month, but it is a good snapshot of what was on offer throughout 2016 and this is the order they were published in.

In fact three of them were from the same “Out of the Box” column in October; this was a very good week for magazines and made the disappointing September issues a distant memory.

A study by Fashionista shows that diversity of cover stars is much improved in 2016 and this is evident from the entries below, although there is always room for improvement especially from certain publications who still lean heavily towards a certain look (oh hey Harper’s Bazaar).

Composition and color that standout were important in how each one was picked and styling was also an influence; I would be more than happy to have any of these issues on my coffee table (and quite a few of them have).Amandla Stenberg Teen VogueTeen Vogue has had a very influential year and they kickstarted 2016 with this stunning Amandla Stenberg cover; this one appeared on the first “Out of the Box” of the year and the direct look to camera is full of self-assured confidence.

Almost 12 months later and I am still mesmerized.bust-jessica-williamsBetween the bold lip color, the super expressive smile, the backdrop and the lip hair clip this Bust cover featuring Jessica Williams is enough to make anyone feel happy.Kirsten DunstPairing a bright yellow with black and white is instant cover catnip and Kirsten Dunst is giving me a look as if to say she knows this. I’m not normally a fan of the wet look hair trend, but here it works with the casual denim jacket number.

My one magazine purchasing regret this year is I didn’t find an outlet that sold this issue of The Gentlewoman.oscar-isaacWhen this cover of Rolling Stone was unleashed on to Twitter it very much distracted from the work I was in the middle of because, well you can see.

Oscar Isaac hugging a dog in his coat is very much in my wheelhouse.A #LadySuitWatch2016 entry and Elle is very good (with certain beauty shot caveats) at these multi-cover celebrations; this one looking to women in comedy with the Ghostbusters cast getting their own covers.Nylon WinonaThis has been the year of the Winona Ryder comeback with several publications featuring Ryder front and center. Nylon goes old school with a ‘zine like shot and Winona Forever indeed (she definitely has a portrait in her attic). Gina Rodriguez Latina magThe haircut of the year is showcased on Latina Magazine with Gina Rodriguez’s Annihilation half buzz cut; this is another case of staring directly at the reader, which is both disarming and enticing. The accompanying editorial is just as stunning. Thankful for wigs on Jane the Virgin so she could do this during its hiatus.variety-laverne-coxA super ethereal image of Laverne Cox for Variety and this is how to do striking pastels beyond the Hollywood Reporter’s stagnant drama actress roundtable sartorial choices (see also the seriousness of putting everyone in black/white or blush tones). So dreamy.

michelle-obamaIt is no surprise that Michelle Obama has appeared on a vast array of magazines this year and The New York Times gives the most original with an incredible beauty shot rather than sharing the focus with a fabulous outfit at the same time. emma-stoneNovember issues were so full of hope and this Emma Stone Vogue entry is bittersweet now. I still love it though and the whole composition coupled with the pixie cut, stripes and color palette is so good that the crop top is something I can get on board with.thr-ruth-neggaRuth Negga has had a very good 2016 and the “Out of the Box” column this Hollywood Reporter cover was part of also featured Negga’s Vogue editorial and she is also the first face of Vogue’s 2017 issues.

This is a great shot with Negga commanding the focus and the Saint Laurent floral pussy bow dress is something I covet in both this and blouse form (as seen on Keri Russell).

michelle-williamsEnding the year with something sparkly and my forever fave Michelle Williams wearing Michael Kors for Porter. The photo shoot inside is just as fabulous and something in the interview caused me to go full klaxon on Twitter. Someone make this happen.

Stay tuned for more “Out of the Box” 2016 highlights next week and for the regular column on Friday.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

14 Oct

This is the last part of the regular column catch up train (see also “Behind the Insta-Scenes“) and so this is a sort of “Look of the Last Three Weeks.”

In this post-Emmys time – I have been writing about Emmys fashion for so long it feels odd now we’re past it – there are still plenty of fancy pants events, premieres, film festivals and magazine covers.
matthew-rhys-and-keri-russell-operaKeri Russell and Matthew Rhys attended the Met Opera in style a couple of weeks ago with Russell opting for Stephane Rolland for the third time in recent months (see also the Emmys and the White House state dinner).

This caped jumpsuit might be my favorite of the three and it brings all the elegant drama. It is also fun watching the reduction of Matthew Rhys’ hiatus beard from the White House through to the Emmys and then this. After all they have started shooting season 5 now.

It was a tossup between this appearance and the fantastic lady suit/pussy bow blouse combination Keri Russell wore to another recent event, but the cape won out this time.emily-blunt-and-john-krasinskiKeeping with the couple faves and a lipstick/dress color delight from Emily Blunt in Prada at the New York premiere for The Girl on the Train last week. Also this live reading of Good Will Hunting pretty much sounds like the best thing ever.sjp-and-cynthia-nixonAs regular readers will know, I am a big fan of former co-stars who come out to support each other with their new projects so Cynthia Nixon at the Divorce premiere is a big tick in this box. Plus the Miranda/Carrie friendship always hit me in the feelings department (“My Motherboard, My Self” is my favorite SATC episode) so this appearance gets a double tick. There is so much joy in this photo and I also think they both look great.

Oh and one episode into Divorce (which I really liked) and I am already obsessed with SJP’s coat collection – so thankful this show is set during winter – and her bedspread.yara-shahidi-and-michelle-obamaThis week has been a shitty one politically, but I am so thankful for Michelle Obama for this speech and for taking part in events like Glamour’s “A Brighter Future: A Global Conversation on Girls’ Education.” Here she is with Black-ish star Yara Shahidi and both are crushing it on the pattern front. High fives for all.naomie-harrisNow for the London Film Festival and at the Moonlight premiere Naomie Harris wears a beautiful Valentino in the rare category of “sheer that I like.” Pairing it with a colorful pair of pumps really sets the look off. lupita-nyongo-elleElle’s annual “Women in Hollywood” issue is here and Lupita Nyong’o scores another fantastic cover shot while also discussing the importance of seeing people who look like you on screen and in magazines:

“I grew up with a very limited mirror of myself. I watched a lot of TV, but the people on it were always light skinned. And now I have a platform that takes me into people’s houses and onto the pages of their magazines.”variety-laverne-cox“Power of Women” is Variety’s annual celebration of women in Hollywood who are making a difference with their philanthropic work. One of those women is Laverne Cox and she is being honored for “changing the narrative around LGBTQ communities.”

Cox has been on many magazine covers (this is her second for Variety) with visibility being an important factor and Cox explains that “So many people have been inspired to live their truth as trans people, and so many people have begun to think differently about who transgender people are.”

This is another stunning image and the color of the dress and the way this shot is lit gives off a feeling of hope.jon-hammWinter is coming and that means all the knitwear and coat editorials; Mr Porter scores an early win with Jon Hamm serving up so much charisma in this week’s profile and accompanying photoshoot. The whole piece is good, but this passage/description of Hamm really stood out to me:

“Even in his baseball cap, at 45, Mr Hamm is as comely as you’d expect from a man whose first credit was “Gorgeous Guy at Bar” in an episode of Ally McBeal. One women’s magazine described him as “astronaut handsome”, not that astronauts are selected on looks, duh, but it does capture his capable, reassuring, 1950s air and captain-like quality. His voice really does insinuate that everything’s going to be OK, but there’s something soulful about him, something indefinable that makes you hope he’s going to be OK, too.”

It is part of the reason why a Don Draper pitch worked so well; the voice and face combined. Also there are photos of him hiding in the sweaters if you really need another reason to click.

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.

Best of the Pre-Emmy Parties

17 Sep

The pre-Emmy events really kicked off last night at the Variety and Women in Film’s celebration and we have some of the best looks of the night. Expect more to be added before the main event tomorrow. tatiana-maslany-and-tom-cullenLots of super sparkly detail on nominee Tatiana Maslany’s frock and strappy sandals satisfying my inner magpie and boyfriend Tom Cullen crushes both the beard and suit game.laura-carmichaelThat time of year for actresses from Downton Abbey to grace these pages and this is their final Emmys; Laura Carmichael gives great print dress which kinda looks like it has a dolphin on it, but I suspect that is actually a rock by a river image. Regardless it is rather serene and different from the usual patterned affairs.michelle-dockeryA jumpsuit with pockets and a jacket giving a caped effect is always going to please me. All Michelle Dockery needs is a bold red lip to really set this Elie Saab ensemble off.laverne-coxLooking radiant in white Yusef Sanchez and Laverne Cox has gone for classic simplicity with just the right amount of sparkly accessories to complete this party outfit.constance-zimmerShowing off her naughty side with a clutch that also reads nice in a super chic look and Constance Zimmer is also wearing with the best lipstick of the night.sarah-hylandSarah Hyland’s leaning a little figure skater in Elisabetta Franchi, but the combination of sparkles, feathers and sheer works as a party frock.donald-gloverDouble breasted suit perfection for Donald Glover and the no tie thing is working like a smart/casual charm.

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.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

1 Jun

A very quiet week on Instagram on the TV work front because of Memorial Day weekend. This also means there have been plenty of celebs at the beach/hanging in the sunshine photos splashed across Insta of which we have a couple, but the majority of this week is dedicated to co-star hangouts and cute outfits.

Congrats to these pretty ladies. what an amazing night❤️❤️❤️❤️ ECLIPSED !!! #eclipsed

Norman Reedus went to see Eclipsed and this ticks all my supporting a co-star in their other endeavors boxes. Plus a whole lot of patterned outfit delights.

More from the OITNB ladies and they’re celebrating Laverne Cox’s birthday, which also ticks those co-stars who hang out boxes. Plus it is just over two weeks until OITNB returns (Friday, June 17).

 

So this is not from this week, but as I just caught up with iZombie I have some new Insta accounts to peruse and this is just too wonderful not to include. Robert Buckley in glasses is a really good look.

Hot mess. Ready for @lstdbristol

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

 

Maisie Williams is giving me so many flashbacks to my first festival going summer way back when as the 90s continues to dominate. Whenever I see anyone with star earrings like this it makes me regret my non-pierced lobes.

 

Keeping with the 90s and Game of Thrones trend with Emilia Clarke getting particularly giddy on The Graham Norton Show.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

25 Feb

Time to serve up the best of Instagram over the past week including some more fashion week, awards and plenty of behind the scenes shenanigans including Agent CarterJane the VirginThe Americans and Girls. 

 

Girls returned with a strong season 5 premiere and so much of this was down to Allison Williams crushing it on Marnie’s wedding day (new writing gig and more thoughts on that here). The extreme make-up was such a good visual joke so it was fun to see a very make-up Jekyll and Hyde version of Williams here.

THIS IS HAPPENING TOMORROW #AgentCarter PS there should really be a flamingo emoji

A post shared by Bridget Regan (@bridgetregan) on

 

Agent Carter did something very fun/different this week with an elaborate song and dance dream sequence routine involving Peggy’s current love interests, her enemies and friends (including Angie which pleased me immensely). Jarvis also got a pretty good end of this deal.

 

Bridget Regan is everywhere at the moment and even though she has a tendency to play the villain I am also always rooting for her. This is adorable for starters. If not a little complicated now.

Awards Show prep. America's sweetheart.

A post shared by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

 

At the Costume Designers Guild Awards this week Mindy Kaling wore a stunning custom Salvador Perez gown and here she gives a sneak peek into the prep of an event like this. And I love her for this.

Rocky Horror Magic! #rhps

Fox are staying in the live musical business with an adaptation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and as with the recent Grease: Live this cast has increased my interest levels.

 

From one Rocky to another and Russell Tovey’s dog is now the proud owner of a sweater matching the Gant by Michael Bastian one that Tovey wore as Kevin (and then lent to Patrick) on Looking last season.

A post shared by Holly Taylor (@holly_taylor) on

 

Keidrich Sellati who plays Henry Jennings on The Americans grew 6 inches over the break and considering season 4 is starting up where season 3 left off this could prove to be visually interesting when Henry next pops up. Holly Taylor’s photo here form Sellati’s last day on set really does make them look like siblings mucking around instead of posing properly for a picture.

Here are the costumes for the last two episodes of @theamericansfx 3 weeks of shooting left!

A post shared by Katie Irish (@knirish) on

 

Oh to see in those garment bags. As you can tell I am very much looking forward to the return of The Americans and seeing what treats Katie Irish has in store for us (previous Americans costume designer and TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Jenny Gering co-designed the look of the premiere with Irish).

Following on from FaceTiming with Desmin Borges last week, Kether Donohue is now reading audition sides with Allan Mcleod. I heart this cast hard.

 

June seems so far away.

 

Sarah Michelle Gellar went all nostalgic with her WCW using a shot from this mesmerizing WB promo. Right before she dropped this HUGE Cruel Intentions bombshell (this post is currently being written to the always incredible Cruel Intentions soundtrack).

 

I always made the mistake of wearing sandals/flip flops to clubs in the summer and this was always a giant sticky mistake. I have never ended up with red feet though (I did once see bloody footprints in the morning and I put this down to glass rather than something more sinister).

 

Liv Tyler’s photo (of a Polaroid) with Kate Moss just hit peak 90s nostalgia.

Ohhhh hello!!! #ElleStyleAwards @stellamccartney @davidgardner @jamesbrownhair

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 Feb

Pre-SAG Awards parties and movie premieres deliver plenty of colorful and patterned wonders in this week’s edition of “Look of the Week.”Kristen WiigGetting so many disco vibes from Kristen Wiig’s rainbow Swarovski infused Rosie Assoulin dress at the Zoolander 2 premiere with bonus sparkly Christian Louboutin pumps. This is a really good look on her. Justin TherouxAt the Zoolander 2 photocall in Rome, Justin Theroux looks very Kevin Garvey goes out for a nice dinner and I am here for it. This buttoned up polo is also very much in Theroux’s clothing wheelhouse and yep I am here for it.Alexandra DaddarioSuper cute floral mini Giambattista Valli for Alexandra Daddario at the premiere for the new Nicholas Sparks movie The Choice (a movie I will no doubt watch at some point). Laverne CoxBlam! Laverne Cox is smoking hot in Michael Costello at the Entertainment Weekly pre-SAG Awards party.Samira WileyThe Orange is the New Black cast came out strong for SAG weekend at the awards (of which they won both ensemble and actress in a comedy), pre parties and after the affair. This color is great on Samira Wiley giving her plenty of reasons to smile.Sophie TurnerGoing a little bit mod at the EW pre-SAGs party with a contemporary twist and Sophie Turner nailed it twice this week (three times if you count this excellent photo with Ryan Gosling).Rami MalekOh hey there Rami Malek! Rounding off a fabulous January in a Todd Snyder for Champion Varsity jacket and another buttoned up shirt delight.
