Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

8 Jul

Plenty of away from set photos this week with Independence Day celebrations including a whole lot of swimwear, inflatable animal floats and sunshine. Reunions aplenty and Magic Mike XXL outings are also on the cards so dive in to our Instagram highlights.

Last one…!

Rivaling Taylor Swift for most fun on a swan (or rather a flamingo) float and we’re sounding the adorable couple klaxon for Diane Kruger and a beardy Joshua Jackson.

 

January Jones was also at Diane Kruger’s to celebrate the holiday weekend and Kruger shows off her excellent hosting talents with plenty of July 4th themed treats, an excellent way to use a watermelon and listening skills so good they make the hashtag.

Happy #Merica day mañana

A post shared by January Jones (@januaryjones) on

 

Wearing very patriotic looking swimwear and the Jones/Kruger Instagram crossover is quite possibly my new favorite. And for breakup texts look no further than January Jones’ post holiday upload.

 

Parks and Rec reunion happiness. These super sunny photos mean plenty of excellent sunglasses.

 

Unicorn float (well it looks like a unicorn sans the vital horn) for Serayah and Taylor Swift with more excellent swimwear to behold.

 

The Taylor 4th party is a well documented extravaganza and this shot looks like it could be straight out of a Tommy Hilfiger or Ralph Lauren lookbook. Also prompting me to ask the forever question – is there someone who is employed by Swift as the official Insta photographer?

 

Balcony barbecue for Jessica Williams in a super laid back outfit which I am coveting.

PUSHING DAISIES REUNION

A post shared by @ bryanfullergram on

 

Now this is one reunion I would like to see translated into a Pushing Daisies return to TV in whatever capacity (pretty much alternating between this and Wonderfalls for bedtime watching at the moment). Nice beards boys.

 

I love everything about Gabe Liedman’s Urkel tee story and it should definitely be hung on a wall.

 

Does this mean we can expect to see Matt McGorry on the You’re the Worst Sunday Funday sequel or are they just having a Sunday Funday of their own? Another excellent dress from Kether Donohue.

 

Broad City has found a new home on UK TV and will be airing on 4 Music. Abi and Ilana are excited about this and so am I.

 

Perfect Magic Mike XXL viewing girl squad vibes.

 

Ending things this week on sleepy prettiness from Jussie Smollett on the set of Empire.

Music Monday: Matt Bomer’s “Untitled (How Does it Feel)” from Magic Mike XXL

6 Jul

Let’s start the week with a treat for the ears and Matt Bomer’s version of D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does it Feel)” from Magic Mike XXL. Both this final solo and his cover of “Heaven” are on the Magic Mike XXL soundtrack and while I will probably have “Pony” stuck in my head forever (which is fine) these are two of the standout musical moments from the film.

Magic Mike XXL Matt BomerYou will have to go watch Magic Mike XXL to see the actual performance (and it is well worth it) and here is an accurate representation of my face throughout:

Just look at how great his all black outfit with a hint of sparkle is.

This isn’t the first time Bomer has sung on screen; he played Blaine’s brother on Glee and even though I haven’t seen the whole episode I did buy their version of Somebody That I Used to Know. And yes I do sing along in an enthusiastic (read terrible) manner whenever it comes on my shuffle. Plus there is this super adorable singing moment from the season 1 White Collar gag reel.

Matt Bomer discussed the reason why he ended up singing in the sequel on his recent Late Night with Seth Meyers appearance as well as his college days with co-star Joe Manganiello.

Listen to both “Untitled (How Does it Feel)” and “Heaven” below and for a very good time go watch Magic Mike XXL.

Plus here are a couple of essays which explore what makes Magic Mike XXL such a good experience from Anne Helen Petersen and Roxane Gay.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

3 Jul

Another relatively quiet week on the “Out of the Box” front, but fear not as there are still plenty of great looks from premieres, fashion campaigns and editorials to marvel over (plus red carpet action from the BET Awards here if you missed that).

Emilia ClarkeEmilia Clarke’s wearing a whole lot of dress in Rosie Assoulin doubling as an optical illusion and showing as Lizzy Caplan did last week how to serve up black and white as a summer look. The dash of pink lipstick adds to the fresh warm weather styling. Clarke shares a behind the scenes look at the perils of wearing a big dress.

Jada Pinkett SmithAt the European premiere of Magic Mike XXL in London, Jada Pinkett Smith is showing how to work a smoking hot LBD in shimmery Balmain. Paired with killer Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and this is how to make an impact on the red carpet.

Jenna Dewan TatumGoing in a completely different direction at the same premiere is Jenna Dewan-Tatum in a white Zuhair Murad jumpsuit. The black belting and embellishments make it pop and there are some all important pockets going on. Love the bold red lip color and this is one super chic ensemble.

Parker PoseyI adore Parker Posey and so I pretty much clapped my hands with glee at this profile in the Style section of The New York Times. Coveting this outfit and hoping this venture gets off the ground – “For starters, she and the choreographer Jack Ferver are working on a project based on “Slow TV,” the Norwegian phenomenon in which viewers watch, say, 12 hours of knitting. “I talked to Mary-Louise Parker, and she knits,” Ms. Posey said. Another idea is “working in an Urban Outfitters and having a séance and getting the Blair Witch Project guy to film it.” So here for all this.

The strong 90s influence continues and Winona Ryder has been named as one of the faces of star packed Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2015 campaign (others include Sofia Coppola, Anthony Kiedis, Cher, Willow Smith and Debi Mazar). Such a striking image and not the first time Ryder has appeared for Marc Jacobs. Messy hair borders on cat ears and that expression is everything. To be filed under ads I am excited to see in fashion magazines for months to come.

If you are suffering from Mindy Project withdrawal then the second season of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Hit Record on TV might be just what you need as Mindy Kaling dreamed up a short for the series and got the dancing Chris Messina to show off some of his skills in this department. Here are JGL and Messina performing in front of a green screen and the Hit Record site has a variety of making of videos to watch before the premiere.

Ideal summer vibes outfit and food choice from Jenny Slate.

 

I miss Jane the Virgin. Luckily most of the cast are big Instagram users and there’s a lot of pre-Emmy chat surrounding this show.

#SquadGoals

 

TV’s Olivia Benson meets Taylor’s Swift’s Olivia Benson and all seems to have gone down rather well. No need to for any law or order (yes I will see myself out)

 

Now this is how you celebrate LA Pride and get the word out about your little dance movie sequel.

 

Now that season 3 of Orange is the New Black is available to watch the number of set photos has dramatically increased including this beauty.

Sippin on that Boo drank. 🍷

A post shared by Samira Wiley (@whododatlikedat) on

 

A Boo cup is top of the list of OITNB merch I am now interested in. Especially after the devastating and super satisfying episode 4.

Pink. Drink.

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

 

This drink looks really good and I love when TV friendships spawn into IRL forever BFFs (that’s a whole lot of caps).

 

I think they did a pretty good job with the posing switcheroo.

If you give a girl a bike… #GirlsSeason5

A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

 

Just remember to lock it up. Don’t want Hannah to lose another bike (after that episode last season I became extra paranoid every time I locked my bike up).
