Best of the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet

4 Mar

Happy Oscars Day! But really this means Happy Day After the Independent Spirit Awards! My official favorite award season red carpet. The reason it is my favorite? Don’t get me wrong I love a fancy gown, but the ensembles at the Spirit Awards are all about having fun with fashion. These are the kind of outfits I would wear, suits have more color and the casual/fancy vibe is infectious.

Plus this is a ceremony where Nick Kroll and John Mulaney are the hosts and Timothée Chalamet wins Best Actor.

And for some Oscar weekend reading, check out my deep dive into the many eggs that feature in the Best Picture nominees for Little White Lies.

As with last year’s Spirit Awards, this was a blisteringly funny opening monologue. This time they called out some of the very bad men of Hollywood including the terrible apologies. And they don’t just limit it to Weinstein and Spacey. Mulaney/Kroll they did not drop the ball on this one and they really should host more award shows.

“Chalamet, you stay.” Especially because he gives the most adorable speech. He makes me believe that things will be okay.

For all the award speeches head here.

To the fashion! *Fires up “Crash Into Me,” starts weeping*

Both Saoirse Ronan and Beanie Feldstein look like ’60s queens. Ronan has a whole Twiggy thing going on in embellished Prada. Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani have consistently been the best dressed couple during award season and the press tour for The Big Sick. This is no different.

Here they demonstrate how you can pattern clash as a couple to the highest sartorial level. I am weak for stripes; Emily’s Whitney Mero dress is hitting all the right spots. Kumail is looking all kinds of Hannibal in ASOS plaid.

This dress also serves up so much photo drama. For their acceptance speech for Best First Screenplay.

Yesterday I found out that Dee Rees has been using Beyoncé’s stylist, this is another fantastic suit choice in a season of fantastic suit choices.

Ladysuits and Capes would be the name of my boutique (I’m sure I can think of something punny, but it is early). Dee Rees and Sarah Broom are high on the list of couple style goals. The lining of Broom’s cape and everything about this outfit is elegant af.

Mudbound won the Robert Altman Award and here is Dee Rees’ speech.Last night, I mentioned on Twitter that Aubrey Plaza always looks great at this award show and this is another dress I am coveting hard. Peter Pan collar and the contrasting sleeves on this Miu Miu frock elevates it. While I don’t love the sheer parts of Elisabeth Olsen’s Zuhair Murad dress, I am thrilled Ingrid Goes West won Best First Feature.If I could have any ladysuit it would be a green velvet ladysuit. Sarah Silverman is living out my dream in Hottie + Lord.Pleats, beautiful green pleats. Allison Williams looks a vision in Andrew Gn.Ava DuVernay is another Independent Spirit Awards repeat style queen. This time in puffed sleeves custom Greta Constantine.Patterned slip dress sexiness for Betty Gabriel in Tadashi Shoji. It’s almost animal print, without being animal print.Leaning into the leopard print trend is Margot Robbie in Louis Vuitton. This is what I mean when I say how much fun can be had on this red carpet.

The Independent Spirit Awards is an event that encourages good suits. A bold suit for Chadwick Boseman isn’t just for the Black Panther press tour; this Burberry polka dot look is incredible. And we’re in luck as Boseman has posted a lot of good photos to his Instagram, also featuring Black Panther co-stars Danai Gurira and Daniel Kaluuya. Get Out won Best Feature, Jordan Peele won Best Director. Peele also won Best Jacket in red double-breasted Calvin Klein. Patterned button-down shirts feature a lot on the new series of Queer Eye; the Fab Five would definitely be into everything Mike Colter is doing here. The turtleneck/suit jacket combo is winner, the sneakers work at this event and my Jay Ellis swoon levels are high.I’m still not quite over how terrifying Barry Keoghan is in The Killing of a Secret Deer, but this is adorable.Feeeeeeeeelings. So many CJ and Josh feeeeeeeeelings.A photo of a photo being taken and I love everything about this. Also Allison Janney looks flaming hot in hot pink Pamella Roland.Be still my Lady Bird loving heart. Why yes I am watching this again today.

Best of InStyle and Entertainment Weekly TIFF Party Red Carpet

11 Sep

As mentioned in last week’s “Out of the Box” there is A LOT going on right now in terms of fashion — film festivals, NYFW, fall TV and the Emmys — and this calls for a Monday morning TIFF party showcase. And because fall is here, bold color and patterns that dominated the summer are a tad muted. But there will always be floral.

To kick-start this week, we’ve got a rundown of our favorite looks from the HFPA & InStyle TIFF Party and Entertainment Weekly’s Must List shindig. A playful spin on the ladysuit from Evan Rachel Wood in pinstripe Dolce & Gabbana with floral lapels and accents. Looking forward to seeing what she will be wearing on Sunday at the Emmys. Tatiana Maslany won the Emmy last year for Best Actress in a drama series and while Orphan Black was not eligible, there is still plenty of Maslany to look forward to as her performance in Stronger is getting quite the buzz.

I am a fan of Maslany’s red carpet approach and she crushes both fancy and the more casual approach.

At the InStyle party she opted for the latter and this look is the most ’90s. Yes, I love it. For more Maslany sartorial triumphs with bonus Jake check head here and there will be more later in the week. Serving up power shoulder goals in Saint Laurent Fall 2017 and Margot Robbie looks like she is playing the villain in an ’80s drama. Drinks will be thrown.And Emma Stone is giving some witchy vibes — much to my joy — in Chloe Resort 2018. Just add a berry lipstick.Imogen Poots in an iridescent dream of a frock and this is giving me so many retro space age feelings. The most Nicole Kidman look in a beautiful embroidered Valentino and if it ain’t broke…Frances Ha was my favorite film of 2012 and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for Lady Birdif you follow me on Twitter you will already know.

Giving great floral ladysuit is Laurie Metcalf and Greta Gerwig’s Sophie Theallet frock looks like fancy wallpaper I’m decorating my imaginary drawing room with. Tracy Letts sadly switched this tee for a button-down.Idris Elba put a bird on it in Bruta and move over flamingos as ducks are what I want on my clothes right now. Idris as always, looks amazing.Also, Jake got to meet Idris and this is delightful. Someone make a movie with them as the leads. Please and thank you.The best hangout that I will never get invited to.

Best of the 2016 Oscars Red Carpet: Sparkle and Pattern

29 Feb

Welcome to the final hurrah of awards season (well there are also still Vanity Fair after party photos to deal with) and after months of campaigning and many other red carpets the Oscars are here. Now I’m not going to say I was totally disappointed, underwhelmed perhaps as overall the Golden Globes and maybe even the SAGs had more standout dress moments. There was a lot to love this year, but not a whole lot that had that Oscar WOAH. No contenders to the Michelle Williams in yellow Vera Wang from 10 years ago.

There are still plenty of dresses to peruse and welcome to part 1 of our highlights – kicking off with all the sparkly delights.Saoirse RonanSaoirse Ronan delivered the first WOW reaction of the night in emerald Calvin Klein Collection and it is giving me Keira Knightley Atonement dress feelings with a 1970s sequin twist. That is a very good thing.Naomi Watts and Liev SchreiberMore sequins and a gown that looks just as stunning in motion as it does in these posed photos; Naomi Watts is onto a winner in Armani Privé and Liev Schreiber is doing the classic tux thing (for dudes in exciting suits check out the style highlights from the Independent Spirit Awards).Margot RobbiePlunging gold snakeskin for Margot Robbie and this is another dress that is giving off so many 1970s vibes and in not so shocking news I am very much here for this decade’s strong influence.Sandy PowellSound the #LadySuitWatch2016 klaxon and costume designer Sandy Powell (no E! this is not Tilda) does not disappoint in a year when she has been nominated not once, but twice (for Carol and Cinderella – see photos from a Cinderella exhibit here). Amy PoehlerWhen I first saw Amy Poehler in Andrew Gn I snap judgement declared this my favorite ever red carpet look for her and the morning after I still feel the same. Love the embroidery and the drama. Plus a caped sleeve is always going to hit my sweet spot.Alicia VikanderIt has been a season of big hitters for the always fashion forward and adventurous Alicia Vikander so I was a little disappointed with what Louis Vuitton made for her very big night. Don’t get me wrong it is a lovely gown (bubble hem aside), but it’s not the triumphant levels we saw at the SAGs. I feel greedy for wanting more.

I am glad she won (even if it should have been for Ex-Machina) and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she does both on screen and on the red carpet in the not too distant future. Shout-out to the woman in silver sequins in the background as she looks fabulous.Daisy RidleyAnother recent red carpet big hitter and Daisy Ridley crushed the Star Wars press tour on every level. Chanel Couture is a great step although I am not in love with the sheer trim, but Ridley is certainly working the awkward length and gets those all important lipstick points. John Legend and Chrissy TeiganChrissy Teigen posted a photo on Instagram of final Oscar prep which included getting sewn into her dress – standard fancy gown procedure which always has me wondering about trips to the bathroom – and she looks incredible in rose embroidered Marchesa. John Legend as always scrubs up very well.Juliet RylanceAnother incredible embroidered creation and Juliet Rylance’s Temperley London frock gives off a very fresh vibe. Rylance was there with her father Mark Rylance and his Best Supporting Actor speech was one of my favorites from the night. Such grace and humility. Plus that wonderful accent. Now I am also wondering whether we will get any more of The Knick as I have so many hopes for Cornelia.

Stay tuned for part 2 of our Oscar coverage.

Oscar 2015 Red Carpet Highlights Part 2 – Classic (with a twist)

23 Feb

The Oscar red carpet rundown continues (Part 1 is here) and here are some stunning takes on classic black and white designs (with some blue thrown into the mix).

LupitaLast year Lupita Nyong’o dominated award season and became the red carpet queen. Even when she isn’t nominated she still makes a jaw dropping entrance in a Calvin Klein Collection pearl dress.

Meryl StreepMeryl Streep not only had one of the reactions of the night (see end of post) but this is quite possibly my favorite ever Meryl Oscar look (and there have been many) in custom Lanvin. The tuxedo jacket kicks it off and the rest is just as chic.

Margot RobbieThis is somehow both demure and super sexy. Plus Margot Robbie’s Saint Laurent manages to incorporate a sheer element that doesn’t make me sigh with sadness. Amazing crimson lip color bonus points.

Reese WitherspoonThe #AskHerMore campaign is something I am all for (yes I am aware this might sound contradictory while I write this roundup) and the Fug Girls (Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan) eloquently sum up how I feel about Reese Witherspoon not answering the ‘who are you wearing?’ standard Q “#askhermore is great, but it’s ALSO okay to ask/say who you’re wearing. You got it for free. It’s a transaction. Tip your server.” Reese, your Tom Ford dress is stunning as was your performance in Wild.

Sienna MillerA beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown for Sienna Miller with bow and sequin detail.

Cate BlanchettAs with Lupita, Cate Blanchett is a winner from last year doing the presenter version of a stunning gown. The Maison Margiela Couture dress by itself would veer towards classic but dull and it is the Tiffany & Co necklace that really lets this outfit sing.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne is adorable as seen here and when he won Best Actor. He also continues to wow with his suit choices and for the Oscars Redmayne wears Alexander McQueen, as does Hannah Bagshawe making this ‘His and Hers High Fashion.’ Plus there is only a slight hint of the Redmayne lean.

Leaving you with this while I catch up on sleep:
