Out of the Box: Look of the Week

28 Jul

Comic-Con is done for another year, but it sure did deliver sartorially. Particularly in the area of a personal fave of mine; the ladysuit. Well, we have more menswear inspired tailoring from both premieres and photoshoots.

Plus Summer TCA is here, which means more panel attire. Ladysuit meets Cersei Lannister embellishments for Cara Delevingne, wearing custom Burberry at the London Valerian and The City Of A Thousand Planets premiere. Digging the pixie cut/headband combo and this is a great look for this movie. Seeing double Marc Jacobs at the Ingrid Goes West premiere and a coordinated Aubrey Plaza and Elisabeth Olsen. Love the playful twist with the almost-matching dresses – gold for Plaza, silver for Olsen – and how this nods to the plot of the movie they are promoting. One of the new shows I am most anticipating is David Simon’s The Deuce – because Maggie Gyllenhaal and those costumes – and at the HBO summer TCA session Gyllenhaal brought her lipstick and windowpane check jumpsuit A game. Also at the HBO session, Sonja Sohn discussed Baltimore Rising, the new documentary she directed; detailing the manner in which the media sensationalized the protests that took place after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody. Sohn is probably best known for her role in The Wire as Kima Greggs and on Sohn making this documentary, Wire creator David Simon said ““She’s come to love the city as if she was born there and she has documented something that’s very important.”

On reasons for making this documentary and why it is so important Sohn explained:

“The people of Baltimore are actually engaging in a much more sophisticated conversation than I was hearing or at least that the media was covering in other cities. So at that point, it was simply my love for the community, my love for justice and my mission… and I feel like my purpose is to make the world a better place and to fight for justice and truth and freedom.”

I’m currently catching up on Luke Cage and while it is only a fraction of the show, I’m really enjoying the interplay between Sohn’s Captain Betty Audrey and Simone Missick’s Misty Knight. At the panel Sohn’s got the ideal Summer TCA frock; a colorful maxi dress and sandals.September is always a busy TV month and Broad City is joining the fall TV fray with season 4 premiering Wednesday, September 13. At their TCA panel Abbi and Ilana discussed how the current political climate has impacted the show with Ilana explaining:

“It’s not just casual, and if you’re going to talk about it, you have to clearly state your beliefs and where you stand ethically or politically. So our message is heightened and crystallized this year after our hiatus.”

In terms of panel outfits these are both ensembles I would very much like in my closet.At the TNT panel for Claws on Thursday, Nasim Pedrad shows that you can never go wrong with a floral dress at one of these things.Bookending “Out of the Box” with ladysuits brings me so much joy, as does the new season of Insecure. The Cut’s profile of Yvonne Orji delivers on the photo and interview front and Allison P. Davis gives great insight into what the vibe of the Insecure set is like.

They discuss Orji’s stand-up career, religion and she points to something important about her character on Insecure, “Molly is not perfect and we allow her to be not perfect.” I’m really looking forward to seeing where things are headed for Molly and for a good look at the costume upgrades in season 2 head here.

Best of the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet

26 Feb

The Film Independent Spirit Awards are the soothing beachside afternoon jaunt we all need before the hustle and bustle of the Oscars; this is always one of my favorite red carpets of the year.

The outfits tend to be a little more on the chilled out and playful side with both pattern and color out in strong force and while I love the dramatic glamour of the Oscars this is much more my speed. Plus the dudes in suits tend to step out of the usual classic comfort zone and this year is no different.

And you get an incredible opening monologue like this one:

It’s strange seeing John Mulaney and Nick Kroll out of their Gil and George costumes after so many months of Oh, Hello.

Now for the best looks of the afternoon.janelle-monaeJanelle Monáe gives another lesson in how to wear black and white on every red carpet and keep things interesting. This time it is Salvatore Ferragamo and I’m digging those coat slung over the shoulders vibes. Great lipstick as per and as I said on Friday, Monáe is one my Oscar most anticipated.ruth-negga-and-colin-firthAnother person who has been a big awards sartorial presence is Ruth Negga and she is also very much on the anticipated list.

Accompanied by super handsome Loving producer Colin Firth going for the no tie/open button option and Negga is stunning in dramatic floral Delpozo.ava-duvernayFlying in from filming A Wrinkle in Time in New Zealand (as well documented on Instagram by Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon) is Ava DuVernay and this patterned Gucci number ticks so many boxes; pleats, botanicals, fabulous collar.naomie-harrisMulticolor patchwork Chanel for Naomie Harris and I love everything about this look except for the random bit of lace that looks like someone accidentally forgot to cut it off. Don’t be the Topshop school of somehow adding lace or tulle to things that don’t need them.taraji-p-hensonMullet dresses are very much hit or miss for me and Taraji P. Henson’s ethereal Giambattista Valli happily falls into the first category. The slightly windy conditions add some drama and those gold Jimmy Choo sandals are fabulous.nasim-pedradEntering mini dress territory with Nasim Pedrad in textured green florals.aubrey-plazaAubrey Plaza is a regular on this Spirit Awards rundown and the best thing about this is she takes a very different approach each time. Here she has taken a page out of the Janelle Monáe clashing black and white patterns book in a somewhat ’60s trippy Versus Versace top and skirt. Bonus lipstick points too.isabelle-huppertLooking cool as ever – this time in Chloé – and with the award for best actress to boot is Isabelle Huppert and I wonder if she will repeat this win tonight against Emma Stone.jon-hamm-edgar-ramirez-and-jenny-slateJenny Slate is in a handsome men in suits sandwich with Jon Hamm and Edgar Ramirez. Love her choice of Luisa Beccaria pleats and halter for this seaside venue. mahershala-aliNew dad Mahershala Ali continued his fabulous suit streak and the best thing about this is the red shoes he paired it with.

And I am finally seeing Moonlight this afternoon and this has been a very good movie watching weekend. trevante-rhodesKeeping the suave Moonlight cast score high is Trevante Rhodes in a double-breasted grey number paired with oxblood shoes.jaden-piner-and-alex-r-hibbertMore Moonlight and bonus delightful kids alert as Jaden Piner leans casual whereas Alex R. Hibbert does the tuxedo thing (but keeps things chill in white Vans).aldis-hodgeMy favorite suit of the day and Hidden Figures’ Aldis Hodge is giving great mixed patterns. The pocket square/pin/tie details give this three piece suit ensemble the edge over everyone else.viggoI saw rumblings on Twitter the other day that there might be a Casey Affleck upset tonight and that Viggo might be the reason. Regardless of whether he does win the Oscar, he looks great here in burgundy.david-oyelowoDavid Oyelowo had one of my favorite looks at the 2015 Spirit Awards in a knockout blue suit and this year he’s gone for something a little more subdued, but still just as stylish and his tie delivers a splash of color.nick-kroll-and-john-mulaneyAs I mentioned above it is going to take a little bit of time getting used to John Mulaney and Nick Kroll out of their Gil and George costumes/makeup. This is a good start and along with a hilarious and blistering monologue they both look fabulous.annette-beningEnding things on a super smiley Annette Bening looking cool as fuck in a black turtleneck. I saw 20th Century Women yesterday and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. This post has been written to Talking Heads because of this movie.

Come back tomorrow for plenty more red carpet posts.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

9 Dec

News faces to the TV Instagram world, plus plenty of finales, shows to catch up on and behind the scenes action in this week’s collection. Film Insta is also making an appearance with fabulous outfits, singing and selfie sticks.

Look who joined Instagram this week! And he’s already been on a posting blaze including this very muddy looking shot from The Leftovers. Those jeans are going to feel mighty crunchy.

The leftovers season finale @margaretqualley @justintheroux bye for now world. Don't forget us!!!!!! #theleftovers

A post shared by Liv Tyler (@misslivalittle) on

 

It hasn’t been easy for Kevin Garvey this season on The Leftovers in the getting covered in substances department and there has also been plenty of blood, sweat and tears (and snot). Luckily it is all smiles behind the camera. Delighted to see the all important aviators making an appearance.

 

All fun and games for the Dickie Dollar Scholars on Scream Queens and I don’t have any opinions on the finale/killer reveal yet as I won’t be watching it until later. I don’t have high hopes tbh as the season in general has been pretty patchy, but Glen Powell is the gift that keeps on giving.

Pumped about the #ScreamQueens finale tonight 🔪🙀🔪

Same goes for Nasim Pedrad who looks rather chipper for a dinner picture.

I guess this is what happens on set when there are beds to lie down on.

 

Agents of SHIELD costume designer Ann Foley took over the Costume Designers Guild official Instagram this week and there’s plenty of behind the scenes action including the cast and those who make the costumes. Would highly recommend checking it out.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

28 Oct

Before the deluge of Halloween costume photos we’ve got a scare free collection of TV Instagram highlights with far more treats than tricks including LookingYou’re the WorstJane the Virgin and more Daenerys fashion tips.

Oh wait! Now we got #murraybartlett

A post shared by Daniel Franzese (@whatsupdanny) on

 

Welcome to the Looking feels portion of this week’s TV Insta and as the movie starts shooting this week most of the cast are back in San Francisco. It is bittersweet that this charming show is coming to an end so soon, but at least there will be one last final hurrah instead of just getting canceled into oblivion.

We start shooting next week and I don't mean squirrels or cans

A post shared by Lauren Weedman (@lauren_weedman) on

 

It’s not just the romantic pairings that I am heavily invested in and I want all the good things for long time besties Dom and Doris.

 

Back to the beginning and a super cute shot that is reinforcing my confused shipper feelings. Never have I gone back and forth this much on who I want a character to end up with.

@maybeayacash is my favorite actress. I think she's one of the most important actresses of our generation. Her genius performance in last night's episode of #YoureTheWorst was inspiring, raw, authentic, riveting, provocative, and powerful and it hit a chord within viewers that can help people's lives. I would also like everyone to know that during the time of shooting that episode, she had a horrible cold! For her to give the performance she did even if she didn't have a cold would be special, but the fact that she delivered what she did WITH the cold is especially spectacular. It was such a gratifying experience to shoot our scene in the bedroom; to shoot a scene like that with an actress you admire and have a genuine human connection with is special. In general, I'm just grateful and excited to be on a show with subversive female characters that challenge dominant ideologies of how women are supposed to behave and look like. Lindsay and Gretchen represent women that cannot be put in a box and neatly wrapped up in a bow. We are not perfect, we represent the beautiful messes that real human beings are.

A post shared by Kether Donohue (@ketherdonohue) on

 

Last week’s episode of You’re the Worst answered the Gretchen mystery in a way that managed to make me want to curl up and sob while still delivering on the laughs, which is an incredibly hard line to walk. Kether Donohue posted a tribute to Aya Cash’s stunning performance giving further insight into this episode and nails what makes this such a special show. Plus this photo delivers on Cash as my sunglasses queen.

 

And this is just super cute. Plus there are those Ray Bans again – get on my face. Sunday Funday Halloween tonight!

so this is my aesthetic, paige n pizza. #theamericansfx #eatingud

A post shared by Holly Taylor (@holly_taylor) on

 

Dream aesthetic ahoy from Holly Taylor wearing what looks to be an excellent sweater and living the food dream on the set of The Americans. I’ve said it before, but it is easy to buy that Taylor could be Keri Russell’s daughter from her hair alone.

It is also easy to believe that Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett could be mother/son from their excellent matching resting bitch face.

More impressive family casting similarities and this super smiley selfie, while hanging out in Jane’s favorite store is far too adorable.

 

All the heart eye emojis because I have strong feelings about bathroom hangouts both fictional and real life.

 

Ideal cute dungarees outfit ahoy from Jenny Slate.

 

These might not quite go with the spectacular dragon necklace and the other costume embellishments Daenerys wears on Game of Thrones, but they could hide quite nicely under her blonde locks.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

5 Aug

If there was a “Behind the Insta-Scenes” theme this week it would probably be #SquadGoals. A lot of shows are now back to work and getting their promo on as fall season looms, but there are also plenty of vacation shots occurring.

 

Brie Larson joined Instagram last week and this human pyramid of lady greatness is one of her first photo offerings. The only time I’ve been involved in one of these was at Reading Festival about 10 years ago and surprisingly no one was hurt (I am ultimate clumsy). I did see a far messier one at the wedding I attended this weekend, which is what happens at 1 am. Larson also shared this excellent shot from the Jenny Lewis “One of the Guys” video.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is guest starring on the forthcoming season premiere of The Mindy Project as (spoiler alert) Mindy’s husband. Say what?! Well, Mindy is very not pregnant in this party shot (super hot dress BTW) and Sliding Doors is the inspiration for this alt-reality setting. If you read our Felicity discussion posts you will know I love a ‘road not traveled’ exploration. Although interestingly enough I have never seen Sliding Doors the whole way through.

 

Because Mindy Lahiri is most definitely pregnant and wearing a very fetching Salvador Perez orange ensemble while shooting a subway scene. This is only adding to my current craving for orange clothes. Kaling is really great at showing sneak peeks of the amazing costuming and hopefully the premiere date will be announced soon.

It is Jon Stewart’s last week on The Daily Show and I’m feeling pretty emotional about it to be honest.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

15 May

An upfronts heavy “Out of the Box” continuing the delightful patterned frock trend with a dash of Cannes in the mix because I don’t want to deny anyone a good dress twirl.

LupitaLet’s kick things off with this stunning Lupita Nyong’o moment at Cannes in green pleated Gucci and it is giving me so many 2014 Oscar feelings. I cannot wait for the Star Wars press tour.

Gillian AndersonAnother thing to get excited about is the return of The X-Files (which now has a premiere date – January 24) and even though I’m not entirely sure how I feel about a blonde Scully as her red hair is very much part of her signature look, I do approve of Gillian Anderson’s funky dress at this event.

Nasim PedradLike jumpsuits and leather jackets, leopard print appears on my ‘one day I will try this’ list and Nasim Pedrad is selling the virtues of this style choice rather well at the Fox upfront. Excellent clutch choice too.

Hannah SimoneWhile I’m not crazy about the shoulder cutouts (and I prefer Gillian Jacobs sleeveless version at the Community TCA panel), Hannah Simone is working this Tanya Taylor frock. Belting and lip color get the accessories and makeup bonus points.

Stephanie BeatrizTaking a brief pretty dress pause with Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz and yes I bemoaned ruffled shirts just yesterday, but a girl is allowed to change her mind especially when it is paired with killer black pants and a gold blazer.

Aja Naomi King and Samira WileyAja Naomi King and Samira Wiley spring dress it up a storm at the Entertainment Weekly and People upfronts party; very much feeling Wiley’s iridescent and angular clutch.

Caterina ScorsoneMore fun florals and Caterina Scorsone’s red rose dress is a delight at the ABC upfront event.

Martha PlimptonLiving the polka dot dream! I love everything about Martha Plimpton’s classic 50s influence outfit.

Darby StanchfieldA simple chic black dress for Darby Stanchfield and the shoes and hair are where things get interesting. Over on Stanchfield’s Instagram she gives a detailed look at this super intricate hair style. Not one to try by yourself perhaps.

Victor GarberSpy Daddy! Victor Garber is one of the dapper dudes on the CW at the moment. I am very excited to see him on Legends of Tomorrow. Nice pocket square.

Stephen Amell, Ian Somerhalder , Grant GustinMore handsome dudes being handsome in suits (Grant Gustin’s takes the prize here for me). Excellent photobombing work from Aisha Tyler too.

Gina RodriguezThis also looks like it would be super fun to twirl in and Gina Rodriguez pairs a simple white tee with a stunning floal skirt at the CW upfront presentation.

New Girl 4.12 “Shark” Review: “I am Woman, the Smartest Species of them All”

7 Jan

The construction work that led to the loft getting a landline earlier this season on New Girl is back to stir up a debate between Schmidt and Jess with regards to getting things done; Schmidt thinks palms need to be greased whereas Jess is all for friendliness and by the book actions. Appearances are not all they seem as Nick and Coach discover when Winston graduates from the police academy and they fret for his safety when they see the small stature of his training officer, Aly. They can’t quite figure out how the guy who paints cat bowls for not only his cat but his roommates – where is Ferguson? – isn’t going to get stabbed by a kid on the job and their attempts to protect their friend are both dumb and very sweet.

New girl 4.12 SchmidtThe shark versus dolphin approach is reminiscent of the Jess/Nick debate from “Landlord” back in season 1 when Nick argued there is always an ulterior motive for generous acts (on this occasion he was proven right as their landlord thought they were going to have a threeway – this is still one of my favorite episodes). The winner of this debate between Schmidt and Jess is vague in that Jess is successful in getting the night construction switched to the daytime; however she has to use some nefarious tactics for this victory. No palms are greased, nor does she send an envelope filled with fake blood and a note saying “I know” instead she targets one of Schmidt’s weaknesses with his vanity.

Earlier in the episode Schmidt frets about his new tailor and how his cuff lengths on his jacket are not quite right, so when Cece mentions his cuffs seem a little off right before he is meant to argue in favor of nighttime construction it throws him off in the exact way Jess predicted. Jess feels a little dirty for resorting to this manipulative tactic (after some awkward straw mouth missing gloating) but really Schmidt had failed with his attempt to get Councilwoman Fawn Moscato (played brilliantly by Zoe Lister Jones with a character who wouldn’t be out of place in Pawnee) on side. Moscato is the kind of woman who can get Schmidt to do her bidding as she’s a little bit mean and has all the power (much like his relationship with his boss in season 2); she manages to appeal to everything he’s turned on by. Have you ever seen Schmidt look happier or more puppy like than when he stuck his head out of the window after he took hairspray to the face?

Schmidt is even impressed with how Jess effectively used his insecurity against him and it adds validity to his shark argument. The highlight of Jess agitating Schmidt comes much earlier in the episode as she keeps invoking the word “bro” and when everyone else follows suit it becomes even funnier as Schmidt gets more wound up.

Jess does attempt to go through all the correct channels, first by filling in endless forms while Ryan gets bonkers horny on red wine. Followed by performing a speech with visual aids – the visual aid is Ryan dressed as a construction worker and he continues to be impossibly handsome – that lays out the argument in a succinct manner. It’s very Jessica Day. A quick word on Ryan and I am so glad he has become more than just the standard 3 episode arc love interest as he doesn’t feel out of place in this group, plus the aforementioned handsome. He is still pretty perfect and this might be a problem in the future as currently the only conflict comes from the forbidden aspect of their relationship, but at the moment I am really enjoying what Julian Morris is bringing to the show. We do learn that Ryan’s uncle was arrested for having sex with a dolphin and Cece’s reaction to this random piece of Ryan information is pretty much perfect as she is “having a lot of difficulty nailing” him down.

This is a good guest star week and Nasim Pedrad slots in nicely to the New Girl world taking no shit from Nick and Coach as they air their concerns about Winston’s new career. I can understand why they might worry for their friend after watching Winston’s crazy antics for the last few years (although I really need to see Evil Winston – flashbacks please!), but dudes don’t judge how badass a woman is by her stature because she will kick your ass. As is the norm there are a lot of very funny Winston moments this week with his crossword idea being high up there for me; “Who likes cats? Winston across.” There is a whiff of Let’s Be Cops to this plot which was going to happen at some point with this storyline and if that movie had been Nick and Coach trail Winston I would have been much happier.
