Best of the 2018 SAG Awards: Bold Color and Florals

22 Jan

More SAG Awards red carpet treats to kick-start your week. For everything that sparkles head here, below you will find a lot of florals, some strong color, plenty of couple goals and a pair that made my shipper heart all the happier. What better way to start the second part of this round-up than with Mary Steenburgen in forest green with a floral sandals peeping out from the bottom.

Why yes I did get a little teary at the end of the recent Good Place. I love that Steenburgen and Ted Danson are currently starring in two of my favorite comedies at the moment. Velvet isn’t just for suits as Felicity Huffman demonstrates in a plunging Monsoori. William H. Macy won for Shameless and this pair continues to win my heart. Everything about this shot makes my heart feel fuller. Looking great to boot; Chelsea Peretti wears Needle and Thread, Jordan Peele is in Valentino. Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe have become permanent fixtures on here during award season. From tuxedo twinning at the Golden Globes to this delicate Germy Maalouf floral bodice gown. Brown won Best Actor for This is Us and looks cool af in Armani. Check out young Randall’s amazing tux here.

And he continues to give great speeches.
This is Us won Ensemble in a Drama in what was one of the big surprises of the night. While I think at times this show can be super emotionally manipulative (as the tears stream down my face), the acting is always top notch. Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson are all in the same shade of blue, which can’t be a coincidence.

As far as speeches go this is also a very good one as Milo Ventimiglia makes sure he thanks the production team from top to bottom. Striking a stylish tone in white and matching her TV family on the sartorial scale is Tracee Ellis Ross in Ralph & Russo. And Gucci continues to deliver stylish whimsy as demonstrated by Brie Larson in this pretty floral number. Thankfully Jane the Virgin returns this Friday (January 26), but in the meantime feast your eyes on Yael Grobglas in shoulder ruffles and Gina Rodriguez mixing delicate florals with a severe dark bodice in Rasario Resort. Orangy lips to match the orange flowers on Zoe Kazan’s Miu Miu dress and this is a great look from H to T (always channeling my inner Tyra). Last Jedi fave, Kelly Marie Tran looks stunning in Mary Katrantzou. There are so many ways to do fancy florals. This is a knockout.Queen Ann Dowd looking super regal in Escada. Bow down. A jumpsuit? A dress? Either way Sally Hawkins in chevron Dior Haute Couture is a wacky treat on this SAG red carpet.Big Little Lies sandwich of happiness.
Be still my shipper heart. Exhibit A.

Exhibit B. Great lipstick too, Winona.

Speak Singing the Spice Girls with Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed, Keri Russell and More

6 Jul

The August issue of W Magazine features a portfolio of some of the hottest stars from recent and forthcoming TV shows including Riz Ahmed, Nicole Kidman, Keri Russell, Claire Foy, Millie Bobby Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. So far they have released several video interviews from the various profiles that you can see below and today delivers this Spice Girls themed ‘Lyric Improv’ delight. This is in a similar vein to the Clueless speech version from film award season.

To give some context and to make you feel as old as I do right now, the song “Wannabe” was released in 1996 and Millie Bobby Brown was not born until 2004. I remember being at a friend’s 13th birthday sleepover just after this song had come out as we danced around her garden singing this song before settling down to the mandatory horror movie selection (that night included Candy Man and I still won’t say his name into the mirror). We were mostly into indie music (see anything Britpop/grunge), but on this night we let those pretenses drop and enjoyed this now pop music classic.

So yeah, now I’m feeling old and also this is why Claire Foy’s little bit in this video really speaks to me. Nicole Kidman has gone for an interesting choice of seductive tones for this song.

Also here is Riz:

TV award season is my fave.

In this week’s work in other places, here is my love letter to all things Ruth Negga and Tulip on Preacher.

Talking Drama with Justin Theroux, Laura Dern, Regina King and Milo Ventimiglia

7 Jun

Emmy roundtable season is well and truly here, aka that time of year when it is easy to fall down a YouTube hole watching all your TV faves talking about your TV faves. The format is different depending on the outlet with The Hollywood Reporter being the go to for the drama actressesVariety getting the actors to interview each other and Goldderby doing their one-on-one Google Hangout thing. And I am a sucker for them all.

The only Google news alert I have set up happens to be “Emmy Roundtable.” Yes, really. So when I got an email to tell me that the LA Times drama discussion was up I instantly hit the link and was thrilled to see this line-up. Whereas THR separates actors and actress, the LA Times mixes it up and I am glad that both options are available as talking points can be very different. Justin Theroux, Laura Dern, Regina King and Milo Ventimiglia sit down with L.A. Times’ Greg Braxton to talk about the shows they are on as well as a number of other topics such as the potential writers’ strike (this was obviously recorded before the WGA deal was brokered).

There is an obvious rapport between Theroux, Dern and King as they have all worked together before and it gives an extra level of intimacy – see Dern/Theroux replaying a Lynch kiss – to proceedings. Regina King is there to discuss American Crime, but she is also very much part of The Leftovers family and so this also comes into play particularly when discussing co-star Carrie Coon.

They talk process with Milo Ventimiglia pointing to how his prep for the big fight scene in the This is Us finale was different to how he worked with Mandy Moore for the rest of the season, saying goodbye to characters, whether they watch their work and there’s a whole lot of praise for those behind the camera. The latter is something Carrie Coon also mentions in detail in her recent interview with Alan Sepinwall and I am here for this.

Watch the whole thing below.

Also as a style aside, I am very much all the heart eyes at Laura Dern’s polka dots. Because, of course.
