Jane the Virgin returned this week much to my teary eyed joy and this cast continues to deliver on the social media behind the scenes front. Plus we have a week of super stylish moments including Insta postcards from Cannes, costume secrets and more.
Kicking off again with Gil and George because I really want to see Oh, Hello again and because the guest stars keep on coming. Care Delevingne (just know I’m doing the Reese voice) is essentially wearing lounge wear including boob slippers, which actually feels entirely appropriate for this show.
The cast that watches their season premiere together, stays together.
From the Jane the Virgin season 3 premiere and what the cast looks like all aged up. Just let it be known that this was the part of the episode where I went from welling up, to single tear and quickly followed by double eye sobbing. This show.
While I am strongly Team Michael this is very flame emoji and I cannot wait for whatever fantasy sequence will deliver this costuming delight.
Adorable husband alert.
It is going to be a while until Game of Thrones comes back so this will have to do for now.
Abigail Spencer has a whole lot of Timeless behind the scenes photos on her Insta including this incredible look at the costume detail from the Lincoln episode.
Also this is delightful and giving every lipstick yes.
Carol’s got all the best clothes on The Last Man on Earth.
There’s a new Crazy Ex-Girlfriend theme and while I’m definitely going to miss singing along to “she’s so broken inside” I really love the aesthetic and vibe of this new one.
More Mad Men costume flashbacks from January Jones and the time Jones was pregnant meaning Betty had to put on weight.
Regular readers will know that I have major Stephanie Beatriz glasses envy and this collection really is everything. Saving this picture for when I get a new prescription.
Now entering the amazing outfits portion of the week and first up Ruth Negga in a very cute Rochas skirt and short sleeved sweater. Lipstick points too.
Yara Shahidi continues to deliver with her style choices and her makeup here also looks incredible.
Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby have been in Cannes for a television industry event and it was hard to narrow down my picture choice to just two as they have been crushing it.
I am so happy it is fall for knitwear reasons and this is very chic example. When in France.
Sarah Silverman making photo collages of Michael Sheen is relationship goals.
As I have been away for a couple of weeks some of these Instagram highlights are from during that time period.
Now for some behind the scenes of how I choose which pictures I include; while I’m scrolling through I’ll screengrab the ones that catch my eye and because I wasn’t on the internet all that much while on honeymoon/during wedding prep this will be a lighter week, but a fun collection nonetheless featuring a lot of my favorite shows/people.
Next time everything will be back to regular transmission.
Our first proper night in New York was spent in the company of Gil and George (charmed, I’m sure) and as a huge fan of the “too much tuna” sketch on Kroll Show this stage production was everything I hoped it would be and more. Funny and so dark in places, that I was equal parts laughing and picking my jaw up off the floor.
This fun photo collage of the evolution of this sketch is also a delight.
There is still time for some 2016 Emmy coverage and this photo Tom Cullen posted of Tatiana Maslany links nicely into Orphan Black and my desire to get drinks and go dancing with them.
Speaking of Orphan Black and they are back on set for the fifth and final season. Helena is coming to play and this always makes me very happy.
Also it just occurred to me that a lot of shows I hold close to my heart are getting the chance to wrap up on their own terms (see also The Americans, Halt and Catch Fire and The Leftovers). Sure, it is a bummer they will be over soon(ish), but also such a relief they will get a proper ending to their story.
Also on this list is Game of Thrones (although it was never in doubt that they would get to choose their end date unlike some of those shows listed above) and this is very fun flashback to 2015 from Carice van Houten.
Two more seasons of The Americans (*sob*) and day one of season five already has me excited for the skirt/boot combination Keri Russell is wearing (even in this is an out of focus shot).
To the woman who creates these Americans costumes surrounded by her work and this photo of costume designer Katie Irish is a stunner.
And to a show that is over, but not in our hearts or January Jones’ Insta and these costume shots from Janie Bryant are always a welcome sight.
Now for a closer look at the hair, makeup and costuming Shantel VanSanten wore on the Timeless premiere – a show that is tremendous amounts of fun from both a story and costume perspective – and I love the detail in her description here. Also so much lipstick coveting.
Constance Zimmer shared a piece of fan art that celebrates the many characters she has played on TV and it is wonderful.
No hot sauce required.
A couple of style highlights include Lupita Nyong’o on the Queen of Katwe press tour crushing it all over the place.
Followed by Jenny Slate going full vintage in this fabulous casual look.
Ending things this week with a couple of very important things from the Broad City Instagram including the best dog ever (Tom Hiddleston you look okay too).
As a Top 5 Americans disguise it feels right to finish this first “Behind the Insta-Scenes” post after being away with this joyous moment. Abbi and Ilana, I’m sure would agree.
It is that time of year when Emmy related activities are beginning from the Variety “Actors on Actors” series to the most recent FX Upfront screening of American Crime Story. This means a lot of TV stars out and about so along with our usual behind the scenes set antics there is also plenty of promo stuff occurring. Plus a whole array of other events from the week.
Confession – I still have not caught any Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (I know), but I am still super psyched about this Instagram reveal and it is up there on the former roommate scale with Connie Britton and Lauren Graham.
Another amazing group of women and the “Fierce Verse: Feminist as Fuck” event is everything I want from a night of entertainment right down to Amber Tamblyn, Amy Poehler and Carrie Brownstein reading an Entourage script.
I’m already pretty sure that this Rachel/Quinn drinking/hangover scene is going to be an UnREAL season 2 highlight.
Adding “Quinning” to words I want to use more often.
Holly Taylor has ditched her Elizabeth Jennings’ coat and poses up a pool playing storm with her onscreen brother at the FX American Crime Story event last week.
Also at the same FX Upfronts event another pair of co-star cuties.
#CoatGoals and heart eye emoji faces.
Cherishing these Good Wife behind the scenes photos as the end is so close and also looking for clues; is this indicating that Lucca is representing Peter? This is definitely a courtroom scene.
Kerry Washington’s Confirmation tour is all about the floral frocks; perfect for spring sunshine (sorry if you are currently experiencing unseasonable snow where you are this week).
Another shot of this fabulous Kerry Washington dress (and probably my favorite of the four) as she takes part in Variety’s Actors on Actors; Emmy discussion season is upon us and I am always giddy for these one on one conversations and forthcoming roundtables.
Darts are also on the menu as well as actors chatting about actorly things and Rami shines in both the scoring and stripes department.
Uzo Aduba is currently performing on London’s West End in The Maids along side Fresh Meat’s Zawe Ashton and Lady Edith herself Laura Carmichael. The trio hit up the Olivier Awards red carpet and do the selfie thing with Stephen Oremus. Lipstick bonus points awarded to Zawe Ashton.
Now for a very random pairing with Bill Hader and Marcia Clark on stage with Gil and George.
Costume designer Jill Bream posing with Kate McKinnon who is really working the iconic Daenerys season 5 look on SNL.
So much Duplass beard and I am here for it.
Rachel Bilson takes a step back in time and while it is over 10 years since Friends ended it is still just as popular as ever.
Still no word on an Agent Carter renewal, but for now enjoy this incredible BTS shot of Bridget Regan looking cool as fuck.
Ending things this week with Lupita Nyong’o working the perfect sparkle skirt to shimmy in.
Another busy weekend with the Super Bowl and the NAACP Image Awards and we’ve got some behind the scenes action from both. Plus the usual array of set photos including Jane the Virgin, Inside Amy Schumer and The Good Wife.
A Friday Night Lights reunion at the Super Bowl on Sunday gave me plenty to cheer about. There’s also a much bigger version of this meet-up taking place at this year’s ATX Television Festival and if I didn’t have a wedding to pay for I would be there in a flash.
A shot of these three fabulous women came up on TV and I maybe full on yelled in delight (the only things to get a strong reaction like this on Sunday were Beyoncé and the big Good Wife news – this was a mix of sadness/about time).
And here’s another. Just because.
Beyoncé slayed both during the halftime show with her new song “Formation” and when she unleashed the song/video on the world the day before. There are so many incredible photos (mostly from the dress rehearsal) on Beyoncé’s Instagram and I really love this close up shot of her backup dancers and their fishnets, leather skirts and Doc Marten ankle boots (you need a good solid heel to perform those kind of routines on grass). For more on the coordinated costumes head here.
Not only did Kerry Washington get to hang out with Viola Davis on the red carpet at the NAACP Image Awards, but she also had an excellent seating neighbor.
Kerry Washington is also keeping it in the TV family with some of the Scandal cast.
Backstage NAACP Image Awards shenanigans from Gina Rodriguez and Keegan-Michael Key. Now all I want is for Key to guest star on Jane the Virgin.
Speaking of which – here is a current Jane the Virgin guest star heating things up on the show. I totally get Gina Rodriguez’s face in this picture.
Jane the Virgin is on fire right now and I love what they are doing with Petra this season. Hopefully this is an indication that we will get to see some Petra/Rogelio action in the not too distant future.
OITNB hangouts and Danielle Brooks’ scarf got me feeling all the warm and fuzzy things.
Everything about this from the mustache to the sweater makes me so happy. This one is also excellent.
Kristen Wiig and Justin Theroux are killing it on the Zoolander 2 press tour and even if I am not really bothered about the movie I am very much enjoying their involvement.
Cush Jumbo has been one of the consistently brilliant things about this (final) Good Wife season and costume designer Daniel Lawson continues to deliver on the fantastic prints. Looking forward to seeing this in one of the final nine episodes.
This is all kinds of adorable. Plus bonus grizzly beard points for Mark Duplass AND I just remembered that Togetherness is back very soon (Katie Aselton will also be recurring!).
Set life can be very dangerous even when hanging out in your trailer, as Billy Eichner found out this week. Super scary stuff.
Inside Amy Schumer excellent repeat guest stars ahoy.
My ‘To Read’ pile is already at a ridiculous height, but I can’t resist a good book rec. Plus Mindy’s sweater (another thing I don’t really need more of) is calling out to me.
Kroll Show might be over (*sob*), but thankfully there are still plenty of reminders everywhere.
“My Name is Jonas” has been stuck in my head all week and there is a very obvious reason for this as social media has been awash with a blizzard by a certain name. So yes, plenty of snow pics from this edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes. Plus Sundance, red lipstick (insert emoji here), guests stars, that touted Friends reunion and more.
Snow plus dogs equals all the adorable especially when the dog is also dressed for the occasion. Cush Jumbo’s fur hood/gloves/big scarf continues the theme of all things winter wear this week on TV Ate My Wardrobe.
Russell Tovey’s dog Rocky has snow shoes and I can’t even with how cute this is. Rocky does not seem thrilled by this weather.
Diane Kruger attempts a potentially perilous jump in the air snow pic and if I attempted this the likelihood of sticking the landing would be slim. Excellent coats and mittens choice (wouldn’t expect anything less). What we really want to know is who took the photo?
Enjoying the snow also in style is Joshua Jackson. Same question – who took the pic? (This one looks like it could be a selfie)
Not often you get to stand in the middle of a New York road like this. Got to take these opportunities where you can.
Drew Barrymore also has the same idea and everyone is killing it with their coat game.
As is Mark Ruffalo.
Yep there really was a lot of snow as this video from Justin Theroux shows.
It’s not all outdoor adventures for Justin Theroux and craft day with Amy Sedaris sounds truly magical.
Sundance traveling treats to the festival.
Popcorn selfies that also need the lipstick emoji because Jenny Slate and Zoe Kazan have picked their color well. Can it survive the movie snacks? The true test of a good product.
While we’re on the subject of amazing lip color…
We can’t not include the TV Insta photo that has been making all the headlines this week even if this isn’t a complete Friends reunion.
This is definitely too much tune. Also I wonder how often this happens to John Mulaney and Nick Kroll.
Jane the Virgin and My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend both returned this week and to celebrate the casts had a joint viewing party.
Broad City is back in under a month (February 17!) and this just got me even more excited.
Grant Gustin knows he has no chill.
Get ready for more Rami Malek in Dior. A brand which has already served him very well.
This Scandal director has me all kinds of excited.
From TCA part 1 of a catch me if you can shot with Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich.
And part 2 (it looks better in grid formation on Instagram), Photographer Maarten de Boer also has a whole lot of excellent Sundance pics.
More fancy pants behind the scenes shenanigans with a relaxed edge at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Plus babies, celebrating the return of Agent Carter and some A+ 70s outfits.
Will Forte showed that his new half-shaved look wasn’t just a onetime TCA affair (his entire body is like this, yep everything) and gave Justin Theroux’s expressive eyebrows a workout of Leftovers proportions at the Critics’ Choice Awards.
Award shows can all get a bit much for some. The Jane the Virgin table also featured heavily in reactions to the super adorable Jacob Tremblay. They are all of us.
You’re the Worst maybe lost out in their category, but Aya Cash did score high on #LadySuitWatch2016.
Worstie dudes also slaying in formal wear.
Critics’ Choice Awards #SquadGoals
A very super smiley Liv Tyler on her way to the awards and it is probably a very good thing that she didn’t have to lie down to avoid crease awkwardness.
This looks like the exact kind of thing Tom Haverford would dream up and the fact that it is very real makes me so happy.
Also to be filed under “things that seem too magical to be true” is Kroll Show originals Gil and George appearing on The Bachelor live show and Jenny Slate filming her reaction. Yep, I still miss Kroll Show, but I am thrilled that Gil and George are still out there in the world.
SO here for this.
More adorable babies and hitting that ‘cast members who still hang out after their show has finished’ sweet spot. Also Dave Annable wins best Instagram caption contest this week.
Agent Carter is back and Bridget Regan goes full Peggy.
A smorgasbord of pattern clashing and bold color from the many outfit changes for Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project. Even by this shows standards this is a lot for one day and it’s hard to pick a favorite; edging toward the floral sweater and pajamas with the dragonfly dress also wrestling for top place.
Mindy wearing one of the above selection and hanging out with my favorite of The Mindy Project’s guest stars.
I am super in love with Samira Wiley’s choice of eyewear. A big sunglasses week.
Jessica Jones has been renewed and I can’t see S2 Jessica wearing any other jeans than these ones.
While I’m on the subject of jeans – I am coveting these ones Gina Rodriguez is wearing hard and the whole 70s vibe of this outfit is ticking all the boxes.
Going full 1970s and the Vinyl costuming is part of the reason why I am looking forward to this show. Those glasses are everything.
One last Behind the Insta-Scenes for 2015 and as you can probably gather there is not a lot of set action going on right now. Instead we have plenty of fun holiday hangouts, festive decorations and some red carpet treats because some of the Star Wars cast never stop working.
Taking the title of most relevant pop culture Christmas tree decoration. I want one.
And a closer runner up for this prize is Sarah Jessica Parker’s Alexander Hamilton bauble. I also want one of these.
Back to Star Wars and Carrie Brownstein and company have some very on point socks.
Daisy Ridley is back on premiere duty for The Force Awakens and as “Out of the Box” is concluding its Best of 2015 countdown this is the only place to shower praise on another excellent red carpet dress choice. This time Ridley has gone for super floral purple Jason Wu.
Because her hair looks really great and I spy a cape.
Hopefully they can work this into Brooklyn Nine-Nine somehow.
Having not realized Bobby Cannavale was on Instagram until this week I have to make up for it with this cracker paper crown double hat shot.
Pizza print pajama goals.
All the flames and hundred points emojis.
This color is incredible on Kether Donohue. As I’ve said before on many occasion cast members hanging out IRL is one of my fave things.
And again. This time OITNB hangouts.
Laverne Cox taking a moment to share this collection of magazine cover delights also makes me very happy.
Amy Schumer delivers on the excellent comedians #TBT front.
The star of Master of None and everything about this caption/photo is perfect.
Plenty of Insta gifts both holiday themed and general behind the scenes delights including many happy memories, magazine covers, newcomers and style inspiration.
Everything about this is perfect.
Everything about this is perfect (Part II).
Another Throwback Thursday treat with Justin Theroux looking far from Kevin Garvey and Amy Sedaris killing as per usual.
I’ve fallen behind on The Mindy Project, but what I’ve heard about the most recent episodes has got me intrigued. And of course there is always the pattern clashing joy from Mindy’s costuming as an added bonus.
Things did not end well for Lady on Game of Thrones, but luckily life does not imitate life and Sophie Turner adopted Zunni when Lady’s part came to an end. Someone seems pretty happy to see Santa.
As “Out of the Box” is going to be an end of year Best Of for the next two weeks I didn’t want to miss out on this Broad City fashion mag cover joy, so thank you Broad City Insta for posting their Flare shot.
More Stephanie Beatriz glasses to covet.
Another Instagram newcomer and Will Forte went with the JJ Abrams lens flare option showcasing both his epic beardiness and Mary Steenburgen.
Oh to be in New York so I could go see Oh, Hello.
Gil and George not only got a stellar New York Times review, but they also had a very handsome guest come to their show.
Now entering the Jane the Virgin portion this week and this cast continues to be one of the most active on Instagram. First up Brett Dier sharing a festive message/picture.
These two don’t spend a whole lot of time on screen together, but the writers should definitely make this happen as it will probably be magical.
And I am so here for this.
From one prolific Instagram using cast to another and this friendship appears to be just as close off screen as well as on.
More frames inspiration. Plus #FriendshipGoals.
And because I guess it is the most on point hashtag for this SNL sketch #SquadGoals.
Kirsten Dunst posted this to Twitter and it not only perfectly showcases everything that I love about Peggy’s costuming, but it also looks like it could be from 1979. Got to love a filter.
