Agent Carter Season 2 Key Art: Peggy Heads to Hollywood 

25 Sep

A new coast for Peggy Carter moving from New York to Los Angeles for season 2 of Agent Carter and Entertainment Weekly first unveiled the new striking image of Hayley Atwell as Peggy earlier today. 

If you’re attending New York Comic-Con you will have the chance to pick one up from the Marvel booth and even though the location has changed a lot is still the same. First of all Peggy is in her signature red and blue; the hat has gone for now but the red lipstick is still a vital part of her look. And she still looks ready for whatever shit gets thrown her way and you know there will be plenty of that. One thing I’m really hoping for more of in season 2 is Peggy’s friendship with waitress/actress Angie and Lyndsy Fonseca should be back (plus it makes total sense that she would move to LA considering her acting ambitions).   Agent Carter is set to return midseason sometime in 2016.

Diane Kruger: Street Style and a Night at the Opera

26 Sep

Diane Kruger is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite and this week she shows off great street style and an incredible red carpet look. Kruger has reason to celebrate as FX renewed The Bridge for a second season and while the show hit some bumpy steps with the overall serial killer plot, the central relationship between Kruger’s Sonya Cross and Marco (Demián Bichir) has been brilliant throughout.

Now to the fashion and first up is Diane Kruger in Prabal Gurung at the Metropolitan Opera Season Opening on Monday. This is a whole lot of dress but as we’ve seen on countless occasions Kruger brings her A game to events like this and she never sticks to one style of gown. With a dress this fanciful she has dialed back on all accessories and opted for minimal makeup and a simple updo. The white pumps could be considered too bridal but as they mirror the top panel of the dress I’d say they work. The pocket detail is always a favorite of mine, both on the red carpet and with the dresses that I tend to wear – sadly there is nothing like this hanging in my wardrobe.

After a big fancy pants event it’s all about dressing down the next day and Kruger did just this as she hit Bergdorf Goodman. This is why she is a constant fixture on “Best Dressed” lists because you know that however great Diane Kruger looks for premieres, her street style is effortlessly chic. Wearing a pair of purple pants, 3.1 Phillip Lim flats, black blazer and black top this is the perfect shopping outfit. There’s also the matter of the trusty Hermès shoulder bag and while an item like this is perhaps a tad out of my price range this is an easy outfit to recreate.

The pink lipstick is a nice touch and it’s a slightly darker shade than the one I have been experimenting with over the summer.

MAC ’90s Makeup Revival: Be Your Own Angela Chase

11 Jul

It’s hard to escape from ’90s nostalgia whether in countless lists on BuzzFeed or projects like the Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World. While I can still pretend that The X-Files didn’t debut 20 years ago and still get excited about the forthcoming reunion panel at Comic Con and ignore crop tops despite them being in every shop at the moment; one thing I am glad to see is the return of some discontinued MAC products.


MAC by Request is back and it features six lipstick shades and five eye shadows from the ’90s that are no longer available; now is your chance to change that. You can vote between now and July 21 on the MAC Facebook page for the products you would like to see return (one ballot per product category each day) and the top three lipsticks and eye shadows will be on sale this winter.

With smokey eye colors such as Ashbury and the muted peachy-pink Flavour lipstick (second from the right in the picture above) you can perfect your 90s grunge look and because I thought wearing blue mascara was my only makeup choice I’m glad that this revival will give me a chance to rectify that. MAC was a product that existed in magazines and not in real life when I was a teenager and as you can tell from my blue mascara remark I definitely wasn’t an expert (not that I am now either).

Flavour is from the 1994 Freedom Colour Additions collection and is a muted tone that looks like something My So-Called Life’s Angela would choose – Angela rarely strayed from neutral tones except for in the pilot and when she was angry at Rayanne for sleeping with Jordan – which is probably why it stands out to me. There are bold colors among the nearly nude ones if you fancy something a bit more Cher from Clueless with Glam (far left) and Pink Poodle (far right).

What discontinued MAC product do you want to see in your makeup bag?
