Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Jul

A lot of great outfits have graced these pages this week thanks to Comic-Con, but don’t worry we’ve got plenty more thanks to premieres, other red carpet events and the ESPYs. Plus new entries into the all important #ladysuitwatch2015.

Brie LarsonA fun Michael Kors dress for Brie Larson at the Trainwreck premiere and the color block pleated bottom turns what could’ve been pretty dull into something wonderful.

Amy Schumer and Leslie MannLeslie Mann’s floral Dolce & Gabbana number is a delight and Amy Schumer’s super sexy and side boob showing Dion Lee number is perfect for this event. Even if I can’t stop thinking about how hot leather must be in the summer. Excellent strappy black heels from both ladies.

Zosia MametZosia Mamet gets a lot of flak for her red carpet attire, but there are some really good moments including this navy Jill Stuart keyhole frock and I am so in love with her green pumps.

Tilda SwintonThis is pretty tame for Tilda Swinton and while I saw some talk of their disappointment at this outfit, I’m gonna give some prayer hands emojis for this tailored Haider Ackermann look.

Rachel McAdams and Jake GyllenhaalTim Riggins is Rachel McAdams’ rumored beau, but she attended the ESPYs with Southpaw co-star and beard grower extraordinaire Jake Gyllenhaal. McAdams is showing off her new shorter ‘do (I’m very into her choppy True Detective bob right now) and enters the #ladysuitwatch2015 excellence list in this super sexy red Cristiano Burani ensemble.

Caitlyn JennerWearing custom Versace, Caitlyn Jenner delivers an incredibly moving speech at the ESPYS and this gown is simple chic at its best.

AnnaSophia RobbMore cute summer prints on display at the New York premiere of Irrational Man and AnnaSophia Robbs’ Giamba dress and sandals is an ideal look for this warm time of year. By the way I still miss The Carrie Diaries.

Laverne Cox and Parker PoseyBest and maybe most random “Out of the Box” pairing this week goes to Parker Posey in all her turban and glitzy glory with Laverne Cox in an Opening Ceremony mini dress and amazing yellow Kenzo bag at the Irrational Man premiere.

Kiernan Shipka and Chirstina HendricksThey didn’t get to spend very much time together on screen, but I am so here for this Mad Men duo on the red carpet and two very different takes on floral. Christina Hendricks is wearing a dreamy BCBG Max Azria maxi dress for hosting duties at the Los Angeles Confidential ‘Women of Influence’ Celebration and Kiernan Shipka opts for a very cute Giamba frock to support her former co-star; Giamba is this week’s go to brand for young starlets.

Best of the Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet: The Color Wheel

12 Jan

Red isn’t the only color that was on trend at the Golden Globes and a variety of strong hues made a dramatic impact.

Naomi WattsYellow is a color I am constantly drawn to and while it is going to be hard to top my ultimate red carpet moment Naomi Watts in Gucci is a contender for best dressed last night. Bold red lip and the snake necklace add to the impact of this look.

Julia Goldani TellesAs Samantha Powell pointed out on Twitter last night there was a serious lack of heavyweights wearing Oscar de la Renta, however The Affair’s Julia Goldani Telles is stunning in this striking blue Oscar de la Renta ball gown. More bonus lipstick points getting dished out.

Felicity JonesNow this is the kind of gown a nominee should be wearing and Felicity Jones is a standout in Dior Couture. The teal color and especially the cut with the high neckline is giving me so many good feelings. A lot of the Theory of Everything love has been directed towards Eddie Redmayne (who won last night), but it is Jones who I am in awe of.

LupitaSo this isn’t a full red carpet shot of the Giambattista Valli gown that would probably be a bit much on someone who doesn’t have the style queen prowess of Lupita Nyong’o – the bodice detail is incredible but could overwhelm – but I really wanted to include a shot of her wearing glasses. Also this is what I assume is Colin Farrell’s True Detective look.

Leslie MannAnother stunning yellow with Leslie Mann in Kaufmanfranco and I love the contrast with the bold Ferragamo green clutch. Also this red lipstick.

Amy Poehler and Natasha LyonneA pair of blue beauties and Amy Poehler’s Stella McCartney pocketed ensemble is another dress which is giving me 70s vibe. Natasha Lyonne is also working this bold shade of blue in Reem Acra.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week Oscar Special

7 Mar

Award season has come to a close and we’ve got one final post to look at the best looks from the annual post-Oscars Vanity Fair party. We’ve already covered the Oscar red carpet, but the real fun and japes come afterwards as everyone can finally relax and know there are no more tight fitting gowns to wear for months. Plus there’s a whole host of faces who didn’t appear at the awards and who are also letting loose, just because.

2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - ArrivalsEvan Rachel Wood’s emerald green Elie Saab Couture gown is simply stunning and this is my favorite look from the entire night. It’s elegant and striking and this dress paired with red lips and the short curly bob makes her look like a 1940s star.

US-ENTERTAINMENT-FILM-OSCARSThere is a lot more color on show at the VF party (the less nude metallics the better) and Leslie Mann’s gorgeous yellow Jenny Packham frock is on point. It’s got an ethereal quality that comes with this designer and the detail is in the delicate beading along the neckline. It’s really very pretty and the kind of dress I’d want to run through a meadow in, if there was a meadow nearby and it wasn’t muddy.

2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - ArrivalsHere is Zooey Deschanel in an Oscar de la Renta dress that comes from the same Spring 2014 collection that I suggested would be perfect for Jess in a New Girl fantasy costuming piece last year. This is the more formal version and unsurprisingly I think Deschanel is killing it and I’m a big fan of the curly hair approach; it adds a romantic quality to the look.

Amy Poehler VFHere’s another sunny floral appearance with Amy Poehler in Peter Som. The halter neck gives it a relaxed feeling without detracting from the fancy pants event and she looks fantastic.

Amy PoehlerBonus Poehler being held later at the party by an all star comedy line up including Bill Murray, Paul Rudd, Bill Hader, Adam Scott, Nick Offerman and Andy Samberg. Megan Mullally is also rocking an amazing floral gown (and grabbing a handful of Poehler at the same time).

Olivia Munn and Jane Fonda

While I’m not overly enamored by Olivia Munn’s Alexander McQueen boob harness (the rest of the dress is beautiful), I do love this shot of Munn with her Newsroom co-star Jane Fonda. Munn’s expression says all it needs to as Fonda is showing just how it’s done in Nicholas Oakwell.

2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - InsideKaren O and Amy Adams both feature on the best of the red carpet and this shot of them celebrating with Spike Jonze with his Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Her shows off their change of clothes for this party. Still coveting Karen O’s amazing red lipstick.

2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - InsideIt’s Jennifer Lawrence and Larry David (JLaw and LD if you will) and if they do any more Curb Your Enthusiasm, then this is one guest star I want to see. Lawrence also changed for this party into this super shiny mirror ball like Tom Ford, proving once again that this Dior contract is good for no-one (well maybe her bank account).
