Best of the Emmy 2015 Red Carpet – Sparkles, LadySuits and Shoulder Chains

21 Sep

Welcome to the TV Ate My Wardrobe Emmy red carpet coverage and after plenty of amazing pre-party looks the main event delivers on fantastic frocks, ladysuits and some eyebrow raising outfit choices. There are many outfits to discuss and so we have three posts offering up our highlights of the gowns, suits and those garments which are harder to categorize.

Enjoy!

Aubrey PlazaHands down Aubrey Plaza in glitzy Alexandre Vauthier gown is my overall favorite of the night and everything about this is perfection; Aubrey and her Parks and Rec character April are TV Ate My Wardrobe style queens and she makes this whole thing look so effortlessly cool.

Tatiana MaslanyWhen Tatiana Maslany stepped onto the red carpet I maybe had a minor meltdown at this #LadySuitWatch2015 moment. Maslany did joke that she wished her Bouchra Jarrar white tux was cutoff shorts instead (much like her Friday party outfit), in fact I don’t think she was joking as everyone appeared to be melting in the LA heat. All the heart eyes.

Taraji P HensonWearing custom Alexander Wang and spicing up a black dress with bike chain straps, pleats and the ideal balance of sheer and cut out elements makes Taraji P. Henson a winner on the red carpet, even if she did miss out in her category. Not that she seemed to mind as she cheered on Viola Davis.

Christina HendricksAfter attending the Naeem Khan NYFW runway show last week Christina Hendricks chose this designer for her last Mad Men Emmys moment and she looks like an Art Deco sensation in this gold beaded gown.

Carrie BrownsteinMore #LadySuitWatch2015 bliss with Carrie Brownstein in Stella McCartney. That lip color!

Kerry WashingtonTalk about bold sparkle from Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs. This is one fancy battle Washington is headed toward.

Claire DanesMore shoulder chains from another Best Drama Actress nominee with Claire Danes in a sequinned Prada delight and sporting a Grace Kelly like faux-bob.

Jill SolowayJill Soloway rocks a lot of polka dots.

Sophie TurnerA different spin on red carpet attire and another take on menswear trend from Sophie Turner in a Galvan jumpsuit and this shade of violet blue with her red hair is stunning. Excellent accessorizing too.

Lena HeadeyGame of Thrones did very well on the awards and style front and even though Lena Headey didn’t win in her category this Zuhair Murad Couture gown is divine.

Nikolaj Coster-WaldauWhile we’re on the subject of GoT here is a hot dude in a tux break courtesy of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Oh, hello.

Sofia VergaraThis is a signature Sofia Vergara look in metallic St. John and a style that is still working wonders for her.

Amanda PeetGonna throw in a couple of black frocks to round this first post off with and Amanda Peet’s red lipstick game is strong and the same can be said for her Michael Kors floral textured gown.

Lady GagaLady Gaga sauntered on the red carpet looking dramatic and Old Hollywood with a modern twist in Brandon Maxwell. I cannot wait to see more of her American Horror Story: Hotel costuming (even if I will probably only watch a handful of episodes).

JLDThings you can rely on from the Emmys – if Julia Louis-Dreyfus is nominated she will win and her dress choice will be something classic. Tick for both and while her Safiyaa gown is not going to reinvent the wheel she does look fabulous.  

A late #LadySuitWatch2015 addition and one I can’t believe I missed earlier because Lisa Kudrow looks like a BAMF here. And while she didn’t get her Valerie moment I’m so glad The Comeback was at least in the fight. Stay tuned for Pretty in Pink and Bold Color and Print red carpet rundowns.

Behind the Insta Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 May

A bumper TV Instagram round-up starting off with some Met Gala behind the scenes (and the no selfie rule was definitely ignored across the board) followed by the usual onset shenanigans.

 

Diane Kruger is one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s favorite Instagrammers and she doesn’t scrimp on the getting ready photos for this event. Also taking note of all the makeup products scattered across the table (with a random appearance from a landline phone). Not surprising in the least to see so many Chanel products.

This is a beautiful dreamlike shot of Kerry Washington’s pink Prada and as I mentioned in the red carpet rundown this gown is stunning from certain angles.

Selfie ban be damned.

 

Adorable couple alert part one! Plus a closer look at Keri Russell’s Altuzarra feathered frock. I bet the detail on this dress looks amazing in real life.

 

Adorable couple alert part two; both of these photos capture moments of laughter from actors we are used to seeing with more tormented expressions. I like it a lot.

 

This is also very cute from Vanessa Hudgens and her furry friend.

 

Somehow the Inside Amy Schumer parody of 12 Angry Men was even better than the crazy high expectations I had as they debated Amy’s fuckability and whether she is hot enough to be on TV. This episode skewered all those many conversations we have heard about Lena Dunham and so many other women (including Schumer); what an excellent group of dudes Schumer lined up to take on this episode long sketch.

 

The cast from your new favorite show, which isn’t actually real. Or, and this is speculation, a photo shoot for TV awards season focusing on supporting actors.

 

Emilia Clarke joined Instagram recently and she seems very taken by Kristin Wiig’s interpretation of Daenerys on The Tonight Show.

 

On Orphan Black they take ‘Star Wars Day’ seriously. And Tatiana Maslany proves once again that she can play anyone.

 

New Jenny Slate and Ari Graynor show feels forever. Also Slate’s ship dress is excellent, as is her squat pose.

 

Another sneak look at Masters of Sex season 3 courtesy of Caitlin Fitzgerald. Yes I am very excited about the Josh Charles casting news.

 

Maisie Williams has been shooting Doctor Who this week so I am going to assume this excellent mess of curls and volume is courtesy of this.

 

Huh, Grey’s Anatomy shoots on a Saturday night.

 

Girls is going to Coney Island and a turtleneck paired with dungarees seems rather un-Jessa like so I am looking forward to seeing what character evolution leads to this costuming. Maybe it is part of her therapist look. Question of the Day – would you prefer your therapist was Betty Draper or Jessa?

 

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

29 Jan

Welcome to this week’s edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes and it is a mixture of more awards shenanigans mixed in with set antics.

 

Mark Ruffalo couldn’t attend the SAG awards but I applaud his choice of location and pajamas upon hearing the news he had won for The Normal Heart. I love red carpet fashion (as you can probably tell) and yet I would love to see a bed wear approach more often.

Abbie likes her black boots #sleepyhollow

Abbie’s boot collection on Sleepy Hollow is a sight to behold and envy.

Tonight! 9 pm! 👯👯 #GIRLS

A post shared by Allison Williams (@aw) on

 

Reminding everyone to watch the show by sharing this very cute photo of the Girls ladies is Allison Williams. This doesn’t reflect the emotional state of the characters at the moment, but maybe by the end of the season at least one of them will feel either professionally or personally fulfilled. Maybe.

Dapper dudes. Done.

I don’t think there’s much to add to Pedro Pascal’s already perfect caption.

Are we there yet.

A post shared by Natasha Lyonne (@nlyonne) on

 

Another amazing pair from the SAG awards looking foxy as hell.

 

Dispatches from Sundance (or returning from) and I am strongly feeling Mindy’s look. Oh and here is the amazing panel they both took part in.

 

The selfie that we didn’t get to see on this week’s Looking in all its glory thanks to Frankie J. Alvarez. I would like a look at all the different versions please.

 

Best of the 2015 SAG Awards – Black, White and Shimmer

26 Jan

Welcome to Part 2 of the SAG Awards coverage and while color was a big trend there was plenty of fantastic black, white and sparkly gowns on display. Check out our faves below.

Viola DavisViola Davis won for How to Get Away with Murder and did so in a stunning custom MaxMara halter gown in one of the best looks of the night.

Sarah PaulsonA surprising turn from Sarah Paulson in black and white Giorgio Armani. Surprising in that it manages to look different to a lot of other red carpet attire without landing in the usual ‘huh’ spot Paulson favors.

Joanne FroggattJoanne Froggatt does the whole black mermaid gown thing but what elevates this Honor gown is the pointed bodice.

Lorelei LinklaterA very different black Honor gown for Lorelei Linklater and I love the gothy vibe and bell sleeves. This looks like something April Ludgate would wear to an awards show and I cannot wait to see what Lorelei will wear to the Oscars (and what color hair streak she opts for). Bonus red lip color points also awarded.

Maggie GyllenhaalMaggie Gyllenhaal’s custom Thakoon white gown is very Nessa Stein and I love that her Honourable Woman character’s style is sneaking in on this red carpet.

Chelsea PerettiNew favorite couple alert! Chelsea Peretti’s midnight blue Rubin Singer gown has a gold shimmer and Jordan Peele’s all black suit perfectly complements the look without going matchy matchy.

Amy Poehler and Natasha LyonneAnother perfect pair and both are going for the beaded sparkle thing with Amy Poehler in Jenny Packham and Natasha Lyonne in custom Proenza Schouler. Fun shenanigans look like they are being had.

Reese WitherspoonOff the shoulder was a big trend at the SAGs with plenty opting for color and asymmetric; Reese Witherspoon avoids looking bridal in custom Giorgio Armani adding sparkle with the sequin diagonal strip.

Kelly Macdonald and Gretchen MolBoardwalk Empire ladies reunion and Kelly Macdonald’s black vintage Moschino is how you do a shorter length at an event like this, even if it does look slightly casual next to Gretchen Mol in an ethereal Dennis Basso silver gown.

Jackie CruzAnother custom Christian Siriano frock for an Orange is the New Black actress and Jackie Cruz is a sequinned gold beauty.

Emmy RossumThis photo doesn’t quite convey how much sparkle there is on Emmy Rossum’s Swarovski crystal infused Armani Privé gown, but she looks stunning nonetheless.

Nikolaj Coster-WaldauSwitching to a couple of fine looking dudes and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wears a tuxedo as well as he does a suit of armor.

Eddie RedmayneDoing the lean! And this time Eddie Redmayne’s choice of suit is a Prada double breasted affair; another super charming approach and style win.

Game of Thrones Comic-Con Style Watch, Bloopers and New Cast Members

26 Jul

The Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel delivered with treats aplenty including sartorial delights, a dance filled blooper reel and a new cast member showcase.

Natalie Dormer SDCCNatalie Dormer is one of several GoT panel participants to opt for bold print with a summery funky floral frock.

Natalie Dormer Comic ConFor the Hunger Games teaser trailer premiere (yes teaser trailers get premieres too) Dormer has gone for a more autumnal look – sweater season will soon be upon us and I cannot wait – and she is still rocking the super side parting as result of the Mockingjay half head shaving. As you will see the side sweep is the GoT long hair top trend.

Natalie Dormer wears outfit number two in this Pedro Pascal Instagram shot with co-stars Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Pedro Pascal for their “Comic-Con Album Cover.’ This is one cool girl band (in my version Pascal is a backup dancer, as if that fight scene was anything to go by he definitely has the moves).

GoT Comic ConI think I liked Sophie Turner’s ensemble better when I thought it was a dress, but hey if you’re going to wear a jump suit one covered in huge colorful letters this one by Tata Naka is the way to go. Maisie Williams’ metallic shift is a good choice for her and Kit Harrington and Pedro Pascal have gone for standard and approved black tee/Henley hot guy uniform. As I mentioned yesterday Comic-Con attire varies greatly and the GoT women have all gone for a variety of pretty cool choices.

GoT SDCC

Or dark shirt will also do as Nikolaj Coster-Waldau demonstrates. Look how adorable these dudes are when they’re not doing all kinds of terrible things to each other.

Gwendoline ChristieGwendoline Christie works a printed and plunging neckline Giles Resort 2015 A-line dress and I expect she will be pulling double duty next year when Stars Wars no doubt takes over.

Rose LeslieTaking a very simple and super chic approach is the stunning Rose Leslie in black vest and pants; bold lip color and her incredible red hair make her stand out.

GoT cast SDCC

The whole cast in attendance (with George RR Martin and minus Natalie Dormer) and Pedro Pascal continues to be the most adorable. Sadness is a squished head.

Watch the blooper and new cast (Jonathan Pryce!) videos below.
