Music Monday: Mixed Emotions and the Togetherness End Credits

4 Apr

The end is near for Togetherness and there is just enough time for a couple more excellent end credit song choices to accompany scenes of renewed friendships and broken marriages. End credit music is one of my soundtrack obsessions and HBO half-hours rate highly on the excellent song choice meter with Girls and Looking – another two season affair *sob* – performing well on this front. You’re the Worst is another title contender for best closing music and there is something special about a show which can end an episode with the perfect song that sums up the emotions of what we have just watched.TogethernessLast year Togetherness introduced me to Lily & Madeleine – I have been listening to them non-stop since including earlier today – and the music department has a fondness for excellent lady artists and this tradition continued this week with Laura Marling and the melancholy “Walk Alone.”

I’m feeling pretty sad that Togetherness only has one more episode to go and as a end credits song bonus I’m going to leave you with the much more upbeat “My Mistakes” by Eleanor Friedberger from last week’s episode “Geri-ina” and a song I have danced around my kitchen to on numerous occasions.

No pressure guys, but I have high expectations for next week’s series finale and the final final song choice.

Celebrating the Elle “Women in TV” Issue: Best of the Red Carpet

21 Jan

Elle’s annual Women in TV issue hit it out of the park this year with five fabulous covers and content featuring a lot of the ladies who attended last night’s dinner celebration. There’s plenty of pattern, color and twists on black ensembles that manage to make an impact in this VERY crowded red carpet season.

Priyanka ChopraStarting with the cover stars (sadly Taraji P. Henson and Julia Louis-Dreyfus were not in attendance) and the color of this Vionnet dress is incredible on Priyanka Chopra. It’s also giving off so many summer vibes, which considering how many layers of wool based clothes I’m wearing right now means the levels of envy are high.

Viola DavisA fun take on the LBD from Viola Davis in Carmen Marc Valvo and a whole lot of excellent accessories to boot including a fabulous mirrored Vince Camuto clutch.

Olivia WildeOlivia Wilde made our Best Dressed end of year list in a (different) leather jacket and once again she puts this garment to excellent use over the Rocky Horror themed Marc Jacobs dress. Amazing Kurt Geiger shoes round this whole look off rather well.

Constance WuSuch a simple and yet super effective ensemble from Constance Wu and the green clutch adds that extra pow to the whole thing.

Constance ZimmerMore excellent green decisions from another Constance and suede is not the easiest of fabrics to pull off in dress form, but Constance Zimmer does so with ease. This has been a very good week for her.

Aja Naomi King and Yara ShahidiLove the relaxed ease of Yara Shahidi’s shirt dress even if I would definitely wear a different shoe to go with it and they would work much better with something shorter such as Aja Naomi Kings’ white mini delight.

Sara RafterySarah Rafferty’s outfit combines a lot of things I love right now – a bold floral pattern, pockets and a black turtleneck

Busy PhilippsBusy Philipps looks super funky in a black and white mini and it is the extra flourishes from her very non-beige pumps to the Olympia Le-Tan Jane Eyre embroidered clutch (my ultimate wish list includes The Bell Jar from this collection) that make this one of the standouts from the night.

Samira WileyAn effortless chic look from Samira Wiley in a classic black jumpsuit.

Melanie LynskeyCombing two of the big current trends – bold color with florals – is Melanie Lynskey in this hot pink frock and I’m really looking forward to Togetherness being back on TV next month.

Lana ParrillaOnce Upon a Time’s Lana Parrilla gold sequin infused dress is pretty much my ideal outfit for an event like this; sparkly, not too tight and with a hint of the 1970s.

Kirsten DunstMore Marc Jacobs for the evening and the only thing I would add here is Kirsten Dunst’s lipstick from the Critics’ Choice Awards.Gillian JacobsAnother outfit that could be boosted with a bold lip color, but Gillian Jacobs is giving off all the cool vibes in this front zipped LBD even if those shoes look a whole lot painful.
