Out of the Box: Look of the Week

23 Feb

Award season is almost at an end and there’s going to be plenty of style posts here at TV Ate My Wardrobe over the next few days including my personal favorite red carpet event; the Independent Spirit Awards and of course the big one. This week has also featured the Costume Designers Guild Awards and you can check out or rundown of the winners and sartorial highs here.

This doesn’t mean that everyone is lying low before the Oscars and there are plenty of bold looks from the Vanity Fair hosted Young Hollywood celebration, the WGA Awards, Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards, magazine editorials and more. yara-shahidiPattern clashing comes in many forms and at the Vanity Fair ‘Toast to Young Hollywood’ Yara Shahidi continues her style domination in a Chanel double; red and white striped wide leg pants and floral sparkle infused sweater.

Managing to be both casual and glam paired with a bag which looks like a hybrid version of those tiny backpacks from the ’90s. Look for more Yara Shahidi below.cynthia-erivoHow to wear pajamas at a fancy event as demonstrated by Cynthia Erivo in beautiful silk printed J. Crew. The cropped length and green heels add a dressier element making this outfit perfect for the red (or purple in this case) carpet.janelle-monae-essenceFabulous ladysuit alert from Janelle Monáe at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards and Monáe was one of several honorees including Issa Rae, Yara Shahidi and Aja Naomi King (the show will air Sunday, March 5 on OWN). The splash of yellow piping adds some bold color to Monáe’s usual black and white; crushing it as always.gabrielle-unionGabrielle Union looks the picture of elegance in embellished (and sparkly) Prada. kofi-siriboeQueen Sugar’s super handsome Kofi Siriboe gives great windowpane checks and this is an excellent suit choice. Also Queen Sugar is so good and I don’t think I have said that enough on here.jessica-st-clair-and-lennon-parham-wgaAt the WGA Awards Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair opted for two very different and successful floral dress takes. I am so very ready for season 3 of Playing House to come back already.kumail-nanjiani-and-emily-v-gordonFor the classic award show black attire look no further than Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon at the WGAs. Great lipstick choice too. And as the Independent Spirit Awards are tomorrow it is a good time to revisit this moment of Carol parody perfection from last year’s ceremony.

I am very much looking forward to what Nick Kroll and John Mulaney have in store as this year’s Independent Spirit Awards hosts.

Abigail Spencer joins Yara Shahidi in the ‘pattern clashing we love’ category this week in leopard print, colorful geometric shapes blended with florals.

Timeless finished its first season on Monday and it has yet to be renewed; it also happens to be one of the most fun offerings this season as it is ambitious, has a strong dynamic between the three leads and incredible costuming. There was a slight uptick in the ratings for the finale so hopefully a renewal is on the cards.maisie-williamsOver this week Wonderland has been unveiling the multiple covers for their Spring issue including icon Debbie Harry and Yara Shahidi’s one below. This is prime time for magazines that look great and also weigh a tonne – let’s just say I was glad I had my totepak when I bought these two – and no doubt I’ll also be getting this one.

What I really like about this Maisie Williams cover is how much she looks like a regular 19 year-old, well a regular 19 year-old who can afford Chanel. But between the Cons and the minimal makeup she is giving off a whole lot of low key vibes.img_0736Keeping with the floral theme and soaking us in springtime is Yara Shahidi for her second appearance this week and wearing the much more affordable Topshop (Shahidi is now a face of Beyonce’s Topshop Ivy Park brand). Fabulous lipstick and shimmery eyeshadow.janelle-monaeAnother double on “Look of the Week” and award season can feel long especially when it is a lot of the same faces, but one person who always manages to keep things fresh is Janelle Monáe and this is the case in both editorials and public appearances. For L.A. Confidential magazine she works both frills and sequins taking a step away from her signature black and white palette; it’s hard to make this much frills work outside of an ’80s homage and yet she is doing just that. Magical Fashion Unicorn status always and one of my most anticipated for Sunday.

Just look for Monáe getting food at Hot N Juicy Crawfish after the show in her fancy attire as she explains in the L.A. Confidential piece:

“Like, I’m literally in a ball gown, a custom black-and-white ball gown, straight from the People’s Choice Awards or the Golden Globes. And I go into this place, sit down, put on a bib, and eat. And that’s what I love about LA, that you can come straight from a red carpet event and go to a place like that.”danai-gurira-and-andre-hollandOne of Janelle Monáe’s Moonlight co-stars Andre Holland appears alongside longtime friend/collaborator and TV Ate My Wardrobe fave Danai Gurira as part of new “When They Met” New York Times feature. The interview shows the depth of their relationship (they are currently working on a screenplay together) and regular readers will know how much I love this IRL background stuff.

Their outfits are both simple and striking in the accompanying photo shoot and I particularly love Andre Holland’s excuse for not watching The Walking Dead:

“I have a very weak stomach and a very vivid imagination.”

Best of the 2017 SAG Red Carpet: Suits, Velvet and More

30 Jan

Now for part 2 of the TV Ate My Wardrobe SAG coverage. For speech highlights and all things that sparkle head here. On the menu we have plenty of suits, a whole lot velvet, the kids from Stranger Things and some classic style. maisie-williamsMaisie Williams looks like a 1940s movie starlet in a light pink satin Charlie Brear dress and now I want to see her in something set in this period.

Also, thanks to Racked for this lipstick post which includes details of how to get Maisie (and Evan Rachel Wood’s) killer lip color. evan-rachel-woodMore ladysuit goodness from Evan Rachel Wood and this time she has opted for a midnight blue double-breasted velvet by Altuzarra. This kicks off the big velvet trend of the night and I am all for this material making a comeback.judith-lightQueen Judith Light also taking in the blue velvet (*cue song*) and crushing it in Tom Ford.kirsten-dunstNewly engaged Kirsten Dunst (sadly no Jesse Plemons on the red carpet) looks like she might have wedding dresses on her mind and this Dior would work down the aisle, but isn’t so bridal that it is out of place here. The combination of the statement necklaces and metallic straps works like a charm.sarah-paulson-sagSarah Paulson has been all about the sparkles of late, but for the SAG awards she went classic in a black strapless Vera Wang dress and an amazing ivory cape. Red lipstick and big earrings are the way to go here.

I mentioned it in the first post already and yet it is worth repeating that in Sarah Paulson’s speech she mentioned donating to the ACLU and you can do that here.mahershala-aliAnother speech I highlighted in part 1 of this SAG coverage was Mahershala Ali’s, which is both emotional and important. Ali continues his super suave domination and this time he wears a Ermenegildo Zegna Couture white tuxedo.michiel-husimanMore velvet and all the swoons because Michiel Huisman.rami-malekAn Ilaria Urbinati double bill coming your way and first up Rami Malek in a Dior suit that stands out and works because he is Rami Malek.riz-ahmedA touch of velvet is sometimes all you need as Riz Ahmed shows with the lapels on his Zegna tux.glen-powellFor delightfully classic in his tuxedo choice there is Glenn Powell.simon-helberg-and-jocelyn-towneThe most overt political statement on the SAG red carpet came from Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne who wore her feelings across her chest. Kudos to them for not keeping quiet and using this very public opportunity to demonstrate. It feels weird to bring fashion into this moment, but Helberg is also doing the velvet thing and it looks great on him. transparentLeopard print ladysuit! And Amy Landecker wasn’t the only person wearing this bold St John number and leopard continues to dominate. More blue velvet too from the Transparent cast and Alexandra Billings’ feather touch is fabulous. Oh hey Jay, you look lovely too.stranger-teensBarb got to come play! Stranger Things teens (well one of them is still a teen in this case – looking at you Shannon Purser) and the height of Joe Keery’s hair is maybe bigger than Jean Ralphio’s and I don’t know how that is possible. Natalia Dyer’s custom Miu Miu is both delicate and bold and I love that Shannon Purser has gone full black gown and red lip.stranger-kidsStranger Things kids continue to have the most fun and somehow it is still super charming. They’re also still some of the best dressed people on the red carpet in brands that are affordable (see Finn Wolfhard’s teal Topman suit) and on the splurge end with Millie Bobby Brown in red Armani.

 

Best of the 2017 Golden Globes: Ladysuits, Best Besties, Capes and Color

9 Jan

Welcome to the TV Ate My Wardrobe coverage of the Golden Globes red carpet; there will be three posts covering the best looks of the night in which a whole lot of my favorite trends took center stage.

Let’s get to it!erwRegular (and probably not so regular) readers will know how much I love a ladysuit and when ladysuit queen Evan Rachel Wood hit the red carpet in custom Altuzarra my jaw dropped. Wood is serving up so much Marlene Dietrich perfection and this is what she said about the tux choice:

“I’ve been to the Globes six times. I’ve worn a dress every time. And I love dresses, I’m not trying to protest dress. But I want to make sure that young girls and women know they aren’t a requirement and that you don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to. To just be yourself because your worth is more than that.”kathryn-hahnAlso going for a ladysuit is Kathryn Hahn and if I could just put a flames emoji here then I would because this is smoking hot. mandy-mooreFrom one of my favorite red carpet trends to another and Mandy Moore’s going full caped and plunging drama in Naeem Khan.viola-davisThis post could pretty much be an updated rendition of “My Favorite Things” and Viola Davis once again crushed both the dress and speech (twice!) game.brie-larsonGoing classic crimson siren in Rodarte and last year’s Best Actress winner Brie Larson also has the red lipstick of my dreams.caitriona-balfeNow for something different and Caitriona Balfe once again shows that she looks stunning in every kind of frock including this difficult to pull off navy and orange Delpozo.busy-philipps-and-michelle-williamsAward season when Michelle Williams is nominated gives us a window into TV Ate My Wardrobe’s fave IRL besties and the Golden Globes/Busy Philipps’ Instagram did not disappoint.

Pt. 1. OR WE HAVENT EATEN CARBS IN AT LEADT A WEEK.

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

 

Dress wise and I am so here for everything about Busy’s Stella McCartney florals. Less so with Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton and I would get rid of the ribbon choker (the one major ’90s fashion trend that needs to go away) and cut off the sleeves.diego-luna-and-ggbOh, hello.

Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal’s friendship is one for the ages and for the swoons.stranger-thingsStranger Things kids keep on with their dressing better than a lot of their adult counterparts aka the Jacob Tremblay award.

maisie-and-sophieThey haven’t shared the Game of Thrones screen since season 1, but Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner thankfully have all this red carpet time together so we can see just how important they are. Including adjusting Maisie’s amazing yellow Ong Oaj Pairam frock and hiding most of Sophie’s sheer nightmare.

Stay tuned for more from the Golden Globes!

 

 

Best of the Pre-Golden Globes: The AFI Awards and BAFTA Tea Party

8 Jan

Before the main event and all the fancy gowns tonight there are the pre-Golden Globes parties and other awards. Plenty of pattern, color and interesting looks from a lot of the nominees you will be seeing walk the red carpet later.claire-foyIt took me a moment to realize this is Claire Foy because I’ve got used to her Elizabeth hair and styling on The Crown in which she looks a good five years older than she does here. The weight of the crown and all that.

Love this pattern clashing with a hint of polka dot at the AFI Awards and I have a feeling she will be picking up the Golden Globe tonight. Which I will be more than happy with even if my heart lies with Keri Russell.natalia-dyerAnother fun mix of texture and print with Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer in this fun floral number. And expect a major hair changes in Stranger Things season 2 as they get on the wig train. naomie-harris-afiNaomie Harris falls into the Magical Fashion Unicorn territory (see also her outfit from the BAFTA event below) and a yellow double breasted sleeveless coat dress might be a hard look to pull off. But Harris does just that and this Phillip Lim Spring 2017 works like a charm paired with black pants. Looking forward to seeing Harris on the red carpet tonight.donald-gloverDonald Glover has the patterned shirt paired with a suit/no tie casual cool thing down and I can even get on board the no socks things with him.marhershala-aliOnce again going super suave look is Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali and the red polka dot pocket square is an excellent accessory choice.chris-pineThanks Jarett Wieselman for pointing out that Entertainment Tonight’s Instagram referred to this AFI Awards look as “No one rocks the dapper werewolf in a turtleneck aesthetic quite like Chris Pine.” There’s nothing more to add to this A+ observation and also can someone make this movie? Please and thank you. riz-ahmedI am a big fan of the suits that aren’t black/brown/navy/grey and Riz Ahmed is a dream in burgundy.emma-stoneMoving on to the BAFTA LA Tea Party and it comes as no shock that I am madly in love with Emma Stone in this very ’70s looking DVF polka dot halter dress. The long brown suede Brock Collection resort coat Stone wore on top is only adding to these very strong feelings.ruth-neggaMore floral pattern delights from one of the women crushing award season and Ruth Negga’s The Vampire’s Wife frock is another winner. Excellent shoe and lipstick color too that is somehow matchy matchy without giving me a headache.naomie-harrisMore Magical Fashion Unicorn from Naomie Harris in a dress that could threaten to be overpowering. This is an exceptional Thom Browne embroidered number showing there are many ways to do botanicals. Also bonus points for the non-boring/non-beige Christian Louboutin pumps.maisie-williamsMaisie Williams wears a very cute gingham frock by Holly Fulton and she continues to light up any red carpet.millie-bobby-brownAlso in the very cute category is Millie Bobby Brown and she continues to walk the sophisticated and age appropriate line; this time in a simple Kate Spade New York with a bow on the back.michelle-williamsMore Louis Vuitton for Michelle Williams and this pink shift dress is part of the cute section for a reason. It could boarder on too saccharine, but these fantastic gold shoes offset the sweetness. caitriona-balfeCaitriona Balfe can wear extravagant gowns from any period and also kill it in the simplest black Ferragamo number. Another one to watch tonight.amy-adamsMore on the black dress front and Amy Adams looks classic in Dolce and Gabbana. isabelle-huppertLadySuit Watch 2017 gets off to a great start with the effortlessly cool Isabelle Huppert in red.diego-lunaOh, hello. All the Diego Luna swoons.

tom-hiddlestonMore burgundy delights and Tom Hiddleston is not one to shy away from a suit with a punch; this time super stylist Ilaria Urbinati has put him in double breasted Gucci.

Stranger Things kids are in big demand and the height difference here just made me laugh a lot.

Best of the Pre-Emmy Parties: Vanity Fair and BAFTA

18 Sep

More pre-Emmy gaming at the Vanity Fair and FX party with a whole host of TV Ate My Wardrobe faves and this party also showcases just how good FX is at the moment. Plus the annual BAFTA LA Tea Party, which always delivers on the daytime shindig attire.keri-russell-and-matthew-rhysGot to kick off with the show that dominates a lot of costume chat in these parts; Keri Russell always brings the casual glam to events like this and for this occasion Matthew Rhys has dialed back on the hiatus beard grizzle with a trim. Nice color suit too and I am looking forward to seeing more of this IRL couple tonight.keirdrich-sellatiAnd this is several shades of adorable from the Americans kids and Keidrich Sellati’s turtleneck/blazer combo is levels of spy and casual attire that his TV dad would wear. schwimmer-paulson-brownDelightful is the word I would use to describe this photo with the cast of American Crime Story giving off all the good vibes. Excellent lipstick choice from Sarah Paulson too.
connie-britton-and-jesse-plemonsThis Vanity Fair/FX party is just a long list of feelings pretty much; including this Friday Night Lights reunion. Tami and Lance feeeeeeelings. donald-gloverDonald Glover keeps the same shirt and changes the suit and still looks just as good as the day before.angela-bassettAngela Bassett always looks incredible and this is no exception. tatiana-maslany-and-maisie-williamsNow to the BAFTA LA Tea Party and there are a lot of super cute patterned dresses to scroll through including Maisie Williams in a very fun House of Holland number, which pairs really well with Tatiana Maslany’s also starry patchwork Coach frock. yara-shahidiGoing slightly more pattern delicate is Yara Shahidi in an ethereal Tommy Hilfiger dress and another stunner from the Black-ish star.millie-bobby-brownA few days ago I mentioned some red carpet similarities between Millie Bobby Brown and Kiernan Shipka; this look continues this notion and while I’m not a fan of the term ‘age appropriate’ (as it can sound quite stuffy) this is exactly that. Good choice of flats too.melora-hardinTransparent’s Melora Hardin also has the right idea for a frock that bridges the summer/fall gap especially when it is still this warm.alison-wrightA different spin on print and Alison Wright’s Stella McCartney jumpsuit (the top version has been worn by Cookie on Empire) is a fun take on daytime party attire.rupaulPolka dots and pink at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, zebra print and yellow at the BAFTA Tea Party; RuPaul crushes it in color and print every single time.

Is Liv getting a zombie dog? This is a serious cutie.

 

Masters of Sex returned this week with a promising start to the season after last year’s messiness. Niecy Nash was a welcome presence and she won’t put up with Bill’s self-pity.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

21 Jul

Some Emmy nomination related posts, Instagram style highs and casts returning to set are all on the agenda this week.

 

The Wine Show is coming to Hulu August 13 and get ready for the Matthews in full cheeky scamp mode with a big dose of dad jokes and puns. It is wonderful.

 

The Looking movie airs this Sunday and while I am so not ready to be over (a thing I keep repeating in relation to this project) I am excited to feel all the feelings. Frankie J. Alvarez is doing a very good job in preparing me.

 

Chris Geere looks back to season 1 premiere of You’re the Worst and it isn’t too long until Gretchen and Jimmy will be back on our screens. *insert prayer hands emoji here*

This pretty much sums @maybeayacash in between takes #youretheworst

Now to the present with Aya Cash eating and reading (great book choice).

 

Lots of fall show casts are back on set and Vincent Rodriguez III from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gives good hot weather hydration reminders (my apartment is a sweatbox so I definitely need to do this).

Yay! "Settle for Me" is nominated for Emmy!

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

 

So Rachel Bloom didn’t get the acting nomination I was hoping for and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend missed out on Best Comedy, but they did score song and choreography nods for “Settle for Me” (and two other dance numbers).

 

While we’re on the subject of Emmys; I was very excited for this and while I wasn’t in a Panera, I maybe did let out a bit (okay a lot) of a scream.

 

Emilia Clarke celebrates the Game of Thrones supporting actress category domination – sad to see no Sophie Turner – with a look at the not so glamorous nature of set life.

 

And Maisie Williams does so with this cute and terrifying video.

 

Also in the supporting category is Constance Zimmer (if only Shiri Appleby could have been nominated in the lead category too) wearing this fabulous dress from the UnREAL season 2 episode “Infiltration.”

Great to see this one. We're back suckas. #elementary #season5

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.

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.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

13 May

Cannes kicks off this week and jury member Kirsten Dunst is already slaying all over the place in both casual and evening wear. There is a whole yellow theme this week and we’ve got great BAFTA style. Plus some bonus runway joy.Kirsten DunstEverything about this Kirsten Dunst Cannes Jury photocall look is perfection right down to the wedges, but really the yellow Dior (yes Dior can pull a stunner out the hat still) dress and the red lipstick is what has me going full heart eyes emoji. It is also giving me flashes of The Two Faces of January; a movie I watched on a plane and I enjoyed for all things Dunst, Oscar Isaac and the A+ costume design.Kirsten Dunst CannesAnd for the evening Kiki goes for ethereal floral beauty in pink and red Gucci. As with Claire Danes, my love for Dunst goes way back to my teens with things like The Virgin Suicides and I am so excited to see what other delights she will have on offer over the festival.Mads MikkelsenMads Mikkelsen is also on the jury and he has every right to look this pleased with himself as he is a tuxedo wearing dreamboat. This helps fill in the very big hole left by Hannibal in terms of men’s style and Mads.Anna Kendrick CannesMore yellow thrills from Cannes with Anna Kendrick hitting up the Cafe Society premiere in a bold Stella McCartney gown.Cush JumboWe said goodbye to Cush Jumbo’s Lucca Quinn this week and I cannot wait to see what she does next. For now here is Jumbo at the BAFTA TV Awards in gold Michael Kors and she looks incredible.Maisie WilliamsMaisie Williams is pretty in sparkly metallic pink at the BAFTAs and this Antonio Berardi mini dress continues Williams’ funky red carpet hot streak.Danielle BrooksEnding this week’s yellow infused “Out of the Box” with Danielle Brooks walking the runway for Christian Siriano’s new Lane Bryant plus-size collection. The rooftop event showcased the collection, the city and the models in the most fabulous way.

 

If only all runway events were this fun.

Also this week saw the release of a new Orange is the New Black trailer ahead of its premiere next month and tension levels at Litchfield look set to increase.

This is what I was trying to watch on Wednesday when my internet went kaput so now is a very good time to give a shout out to my friend Tony for taking pity on me and letting me set up shop in his front room so I can do some work (and watch things like this). Fingers crossed by Monday all normal service will resume.
