Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 Apr

How is it April already? A question I gave been asking since Sunday. However, it is finally light jacket temperature and I am thrilled. My winter coats have served me well, but I am ready to wear something else.

On the red carpet and at events this week there is an injection of color with a dash of classic black frocks thrown into the mix (it still isn’t that warm tbh).

Confession РI struggled with the first few episodes of Legion and fell off after episode three. I think it looks incredible and the performances are great, I just felt very disconnected with it all. Maybe I will try again, but TV watching time is already very busy.

At the premiere TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Aubrey Plaza gives great red lip and velvet Vince Camuto. A striking and classic look. Meanwhile, Dan Stevens goes bold in both his suit and footwear choice. Reader, I am enjoying this. Now this is spring florals; Katie Aselton is a pattern clashing delight in Preen with a Clare Vivier bag, which I have fallen in love with. The eye detail is creepy AND charming.

There is a lot to love about Atlanta, but the episodes which have been the highlight for me in both season one and two are Van-centric. Zazie Beetz is incredible and I cannot wait to see her in Deadpool 2. This stripe/zig-zag dress combo is also fantastic.

And here she is on Late Night with Seth Meyers in that fabulous dress talking about her German upbringing (including some things that influenced a recent Atlanta episode).I am also very much looking forward to having the living crap scared out of me when I go to see The Quiet Place. This has been a fun press tour with IRL couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

At the London premiere, Blunt goes super spring in floral tiered Elie Saab and while Krasinski could have maybe been a little less casual, I am a sucker for this look on a dude (especially one with a beard this good).

This is also a very strong look.Leighton Meester has turned an icy shade of blonde and to my great surprise, I am very much here for it. Less surprising is how much I am coveting her airport ensemble.Book-ending this week with black dresses, but adding some spring fever with the floral backdrop at the New York screening of¬†Howard’s End. The costumes in this show are fantastic‚ÄĒso much gingham‚ÄĒand it is always a pleasure to have Hayley Atwell on TV (I miss you,¬†Agent Carter). Atwell is joined by on screen sister Philippa Coulthard and there is definite coordination here; Atwell gets my dress vote, Coulthard wins the shoes.

Bowling at the FX All-Star Event with The Americans, You’re the Worst and Fargo

7 Apr

FX is having quite the year already and what better way to showcase talent than an all-star upfront bowling event. This is now a set annual tradition for FX as this is their 8th bowling outing and at Lucky Strike in New York, casts from shows such as¬†You’re the Worst,¬†The Americans,¬†Fargo,¬†Atlanta¬†and¬†Legion¬†gathered all in the spirit of FX.

Outfit wise this means a whole lot of casual attire because bowling and then there are some stacked heels that should be going nowhere near these lanes.

The¬†You’re the Worst¬†cast and creator Stephen Falk give great posing with weighty balls.

FX knows how to put on a shindig just as well as they make good TV if the size of Aya Cash’s beer is anything to go by.While these shoes might not be the best for this activity and look like they could easily slide off, Aya Cash’s jumpsuit is a great choice. Also her technique is going full Tom Haverford and as I found out when I last went bowling this is hit and miss. My terrible performance might have also been down to the amount of drinks we had while waiting for a lane to free up at The Gutter in Brooklyn. Also I am not a good bowler.¬†Chris Geere gives great bowling stance. Still no bowling shoes though.We’ve seen that this is a favorite activity of the Jennings (and their covers) on¬†The Americans¬†and it is nice to see everyone out of the super tense environment of spy life in 1984. Also just how tall is Costa Ronin? It also looks like Henry found some Sun-In.¬†It is really hard to write about this event without falling down an innuendo spiral (see the first photo). But what I will say is that it is nice to see Matthew Rhys with Costa Ronin as the pair have never shared a scene and¬†probably¬†won’t. But who knows.Great shoes for very different reasons from Margo Martindale and Keri Russell. Those heels are probably way too stacked for me – I can still love from afar – and Russell is leaning into the cool af thing she does so well at events like this mixing casual with some edge. Meanwhile I now very much want some silver Vans in my life.

Hanging at the bar is also my bowling speed (see early mention of my last bowling experience) and they’re with Christine Lahti. Lahti most recently popped up on¬†The Good Fight¬†as one of the many¬†Good Wife¬†actors who have made the jump and the depth of this guest star bench is outstanding.Ewan McGregor gives great bowling technique and he’s wearing bowling shoes. Yes he looks amazing.Jean Smart is doing that thing where you’re willing the ball to hit some pins, but in my case this doesn’t do much to help. Now I’m wondering which FX cast member is the best bowler.A couple from the red carpet and¬†Legion’s¬†Amber Midthunder – what a great name – will definitely need to switch out those amazing silver heels to bowl. Great dress choice that manages to swing between casual and fancy.¬†A hooded henley is not something I’ve encountered a lot (or maybe ever?) and¬†Atlanta’s¬†Keith Stanfield pairs it with a great jacket and some classic Cons. Stanfield is straddling smart and casual in a way that I applaud.
