Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

3 Aug

Shows back from summer hiatus while others come closer to their end. Plus cast reunions, dancing, fancy dinners at the White House and more from this week’s TV Instagram highlights.

I love these babies! #youretheworst

A post shared by Kether Donohue (@ketherdonohue) on

 

You’re the Worst returns this month – August 31 – and I cannot wait; just look at these faces. All the heart emojis. Catch up on Hulu now and in the meantime I will be listening to this season 2 credits music playlist to get in the mood.

Taking a break on the set of season three. #youretheworst

But wait! There is more You’re the Worst cast antics on Instagram and I spy sunglasses to covet on Aya Cash’s head.

Keeping with the sunglasses trend and adding a big dose of “holy crap this is adorable” from Lucy Liu with her son Rockwell on the set of Elementary.

 

Fun getting ready pictures of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ trip to the White House last night from hair stylist Brian Magallones. Cue every Russian spy joke ever and it would appear that the Obamas are fans of The Americans as they scored a prime spot at the state dinner table. Excellent dress choice by Keri Russell and a nice prelude to the Emmys next month.

I did a thing….. 💆🏼

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

Sometimes a hiatus beard happens (see Matthew Rhys) and other times in between seasons a different dye job is the thing (or this could be work related). Regardless, from this obscured shot the blonde looks great on Sophie Turner.

While we’re on the subject of Game of Thrones here is a fun reunion.

 

This is actually from the Fast and Furious set, but Tormund would look great with a wolfie of his own as this photo shows.

 

It can be dangerous as well as super stylish on the set of BrainDead.

 

OITNB cast closeness continues even when one of them is away.

I am so glad I am all caught up on iZombie for a number of reasons. One is that I get to enjoy these delightful “behind the brains” shenanigans.

 

Oh there’s more dancing.

A post shared by Constance Zimmer (@constancezimmer) on

 

There have been a lot of missteps on UnREAL this season including keeping Rachel and Quinn apart and at loggerheads. The end of this week’s episode included a really satisfying moment that doesn’t erase everything that has come before it, but it felt good to see them together again. Also this is a really nice photo of Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby.

 

Joining the shows that are no longer on summer break; New Girl.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 Jul

The holiday weekend means plenty of patriotic style and a whole lot of sunshine. Plus the Orange is the New Black cast head to Canada, some exits and anticipated returning shows from the Instagram TV highlights.

 

Jessica Williams has left The Daily Show and I am so excited for what she will do next. Williams’ podcast 2 Dope Queens with Phoebe Robinson got me through an emotionally tough train ride home at the end of last week; making me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry so I am extra grateful for that. Plus this photo from the Jon Stewart era is amazing.

 

Makeup artist Tina Turnbow captured Keri Russell getting ready for her Today Show appearance where she wore a very cool floral pussy bow blouse and talked her new movie, The Americans and Spy Baby.

Thank you, #TorontoPride.

A post shared by Samira Wiley (@whododatlikedat) on

 

Last week the OITNB cast celebrated New York Pride and now they have ventured up to Toronto for the Pride parade that took place on Sunday (July 3). Samira Wiley has another really fantastic custom Milly top that I am coveting hard.

Keeping on the OITNB track here is a season 4 behind the scenes shot and this one is giving me all the feelings.

Making a splash!

A post shared by Uzo Aduba (@uzoaduba) on

 

By now you have probably seen many photos from the annual Taylor Swift Fourth of July Squad weekend and I’m going to keep on the OITNB theme with this one of Uzo Aduba. Yes that water slide does look amazing. Yes I love this Vulture post on the whole thing which harks back to their amazing Gossip Girl recaps.

Happy 4th! ✌️🇺🇸

A post shared by Kirsten Dunst (@kirstendunst) on

 

For all your July 4th patriotic clothing needs look no further than the amazing Dick from 1999 starring Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams. This was my dream teen lady pairing and I heart this movie hard.

Jaws in a pool

A post shared by Aya Cash (@maybeayacash) on

 

Jaws is the ultimate Forth of July movie (sorry Independence Day) and Aya Cash’s photo of this very on point tat is very cool.

 

More UnREAL off camera joy and Jeffery Bowyer-Chapman and Denée Chapman are enjoying a very crowded looking Brooklyn park while celebrating the holiday weekend.

 

More from the UnREAL cast and I love how much Constance Zimmer loves this bag of popcorn.

 

If you miss The Office well then Angela Kinsey has a treat for you as she has posted a bunch of old photos from the set including that time in season 1 when Amy Adams guest starred.

 

Very cute iZombie co-star hangouts with some bonus dog pals.

 

I am very excited about this and in non shocking news Aubrey Plaza is wearing a dress which is giving me full heart eyes.

Love these here 2 stunnas! 😘😍 #MrRobot #July13th2016

Mr Robot returns a week today (!) and I hope we get to see a lot more of all three ladies in season 2. Please and thank you.

Music Monday: Orange is the New Black and Sharon Van Etten’s “You Know Me Well”

20 Jun

Happy Monday or not depending on where you are in your Orange is the New Black watch. I’m going to keep things on the spoiler free side as much as possible and as with previous seasons OITNB is another in contention for “Best Closing Creditssong choices. I’ve talked at length about songs that end an episode and how important this selection can be when dictating the emotional stakes of the action it plays over or that has preceded it.

The tone can be set in this moment and can leave you feeling uplifted, but that’s not what we’re doing this morning. Sorry.

This Music Monday selection is in a devastating vein harking back to the equally heartbreaking and amazing Dum Dum Girls “Coming Down” from season 3 and Sharon Van Etten’s “You Know Me Well” closes out episode 6. This is when the season really kicks into gear; bringing together old threads with the overall themes of this season. Themes which go deeper and darker than previous years and I don’t want to say too much more other than whoa this is an A+ pick.

Be right back, just gonna continue sobbing all over my keyboard thanks to this song/show.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Jun

The Tony Awards red carpet was awash with color and pattern so it was interesting to see that the rest of this week was so dominated by neutrals and metallics with a dash of florals.

We’ve got the New York Orange is the New Black premiere and a couple of other events featuring some TV Ate My Wardrobe faves.Samira WileyHappy OITNB Day!

Samira Wiley in a classic plunging black jumpsuit – cue reminder that I still need to embrace this trend – and bold berry lip color. OITNBI love seeing group shots of this cast because what other show has this much diversity and array of body shapes, looks and style choices with this many women? I think the answer is probably none. And this is just a small portion of the sizable OITNB cast.

Outfit standouts here include Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba with Taylor Schilling and Natasha Lyonne – does this mean Nicky is back? – getting the lipstick points. Vicky JeudyGoing for a look that would fit right in at Studio 54 and Vicky Jeudy crushes it in gold metallic Halston. Taraji P HensonKeeping on the metal theme with Taraji P. Henson in Marc Jacobs serving up a whole lot of steel with a dash of floral embellishment at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards; Henson was honored with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television for her performance as Cookie Lyon on EmpireClaire DanesKeeping on this muted shimmery trend at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards is Claire Danes in Dolce & Gabbana with her second red carpet appearance on TV Ate My Wardrobe this week. Pink lipstick yes! Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington is a patterned dress wearing queen and after last week’s dreamy D&G number here is another delight; this time it is Giambattista Valli and I am particularly here for those floaty sleeves. More pink lipstick to add some color into this week’s muted tones theme. Rose McIverEnding this week’s “Out of the Box” with a boost of color and pants with Rose McIver at the 2016 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future event celebrating Natalie Dormer (who was honored at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards – also sponsored by Max Mara).

McIver’s look is giving me so many late 90s flashbacks, but not of the choker *shudder* kind and this looks like something I would have worn back then and even now. Also giving me Keri Russell in Felicity vibes. Love the fresh faced/hair back approach here and I cannot wait for iZombie to return after my recent binge.

Midweek TV treat with a collection of some of the best Instagram posts including the Orange is the New Black cast returning to set for season 4, plenty more You’re the Worst shenanigans and saying goodbye to Orphan Black for another year.

 

Happy Ice Cream Truck Day! Raul Castillo and America Ferrera taking a break from filming their new Ricky Gervais Netflix series Special Correspondents. From this pairing alone, count me in.

RG @halfadams: "Thanks to everyone at #OrphanBlack for inviting Jesse back into the fray." #CloneClub

A post shared by Orphan Black (@orphanblacktv) on

 

Another super cute couple and the Orphan Black season 3 finale gave Helena several much needed victories including a brief hookup with her beau Jesse. They make a fetching couple even if Helena is wearing a mishmash of Alison’s clothes.

Big shout-out to the #CloneClub! Thank you again for watching @orphanblacktv and your support!

A post shared by Michiel Huisman (@michielhuisman) on

 

He wasn’t in the finale (I suspect there was some Game of Thrones filming overlap) but Michiel Huisman made sure he sent thanks to the Clone Club.

 

Silly string at a glance looks like a scratch filter to give a photo that old timey feel (even when it is pink) and Jussie Smollett celebrated his birthday with a large portion of the Empire cast.

You might still be watching season 3 of Orange is the New Black but the cast are already back on set for season 4. Best news is Lea DeLaria has been bumped up to a regular and Boo’s friendship with Doggett is one of the strongest aspects of the current batch of episodes. Heartbreaking, touching and hilarious in equal amounts.

 

More OITNB S4 onset antics and this one features a whole lot of hair (I was also a big fan of the Flaca storyline in season 3).

 

And here are the ladies in costume for an appearance on Good Morning America; it is really jarring how different they look with their hair done for morning TV rather than in character.

with a cutie girl & a fake prop joint deemed too large @girlshbo @jennyslate #workisHOT

A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

 

What I’m inferring from this is Jenny Slate is going to be on the next season of Girls* and her hair looks all kinds of amazing. And that prop joint does seem a little on the large side, unless of course they are going for a Withnail & I ‘Camberwell Carrot‘ approach and then it might be a little too small.

*Turns out I had forgotten that Slate appeared in season 1 as Hannah’s frenemy, Tally Schifrin from college who we met at her book launch for “Leave Me Alone.” Hopefully she will be reprising this role and this non-remembrance also tell me that I need to rewatch season 1.

 

Music Monday: Orange is the New Black and “Coming Down” with the Closing Credits

15 Jun

While the main TV season is over there is still plenty to watch, obsess over and feel devastated about. While recovering from a particularly bleak and bloody Game of Thrones season finale (even by their bleak and bloody standards) we have a soothing song to start the new week. The third season of Orange is the New Black debuted on Netflix last Friday and I’m taking it at a relatively leisurely pace, which might be for the best as out of the first five episodes I’ve been emotionally broken by at least three of them. And this season was meant to be lighter.

OITNB S3Avoiding getting into too many storyline specifics because everyone is at a different place in their viewing schedule and offering up the vaguest of plot hints with this song choice. Orange is the New Black utilizes its credit music much in the same way as other Music Monday favorites such as Girls and Mad Men reflecting the tone of the final moments on screen.

“Coming Down” by Dum Dum Girls comes from the end of episode 3 “Empathy is a Boner Killer” and while some of the lyrics are a little on the nose for the action that is taking place on screen it is also a fitting track for the heartbreak several of the characters are expressing. The room definitely got a whole lot dustier as these scenes played out and hearing this track over the final credits meant that I didn’t just hit the menu button so I could dive into the next episode. Instead let this hypnotic track wash all over you. 

Also getting a whole lot of Morello vibes from Dum Dum Girls lead singer Dee Dee Penny in the video for “Coming Down.”

If we were giving out an award for Best Cast on Instagram it would probably be a two-way split between Orange is the New Black and You’re the Worst; this week’s Behind the Insta-Scenes is dominated by these two shows. Plus a few other treats including the return of a Very Important show.

@uzoaduba @lavernecox @lauraprepon

A post shared by Taylor Schilling (@tayjschilling) on

 

Orange is the New Black is back on Friday (two days to go!) and some of the cast were in Paris last week to promote the new season. Going full tourist in this beautiful shot with blue skies, pretty dresses and the Eiffel Tower.

 

Followed by a trip across the ocean to Brazil and Uzo Aduba was joined by Natasha Lyonne and Samira Wiley on the Netflix float at the Brazil Pride Parade. Excellent sunglasses and houndstooth action. Plus plenty of dancing I’m sure.

Creator Stephen Falk gives a good array of shots from the event including Kether Donohue’s cute yellow dress. Despite there being no barbecue photos in this collection just the mention gives me an instant craving.

 

This is also a very appropriate reaction from Mae Whitman. I would have zero chill in this situation.

Oh well hello…some info must remain classified ya know…

A post shared by David Duchovny (@davidduchovny) on

 

The revival of The X-Files in the Instagram age is pretty much the ideal. See also Tumblr which is already delivering with the spoilery filming photos which I can’t resist looking at (click if you dare).

 

A good portion of my Instagrams are around this theme (TV watching/booze) so I am taking Diane Kruger’s Tony watching prep as a ‘stars – they’re just like us’ moment.

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 Jun

Despite how much print has been in decline in recent years magazine covers still possess the power to make a huge impact and the July issue of Vanity Fair demonstrates just how important old media still is (while being unveiled on social media). This has also been an awards show filled week with the Peabody and Glamour Women of the Year celebrations taking place. Plus all your polo watching sartorial needs are covered.

Caitlyn JennerHi Caitlyn, it is so good to meet you! This is a stunning cover for many reasons and while plenty has been said about how amazing Caitlyn Jenner looks all glammed up it is also important to remember this is about far more than just external beauty. Laverne Cox addresses this on her Tumblr and it is essential reading.

EssenceSpeaking of Laverne Cox here is she is with some of her Orange is the New Black co-stars (just one week until new episodes!) on the cover of Essence all dressed in the color of their show. What’s great about this cover is the number of women featured (Danielle Brooks, Samira Wiley, Adrienne C. Moore, Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba, Vicky Jeudy) and that it is celebrating ‘sexy at every size’ styling each women in a dress for their figure. Body positive feelings happiness.

Amy Schumer and Tina FeyMoving on from magazines to awards with Amy Schumer receiving a Peabody for Inside Amy Schumer from Tina Fey (on stage there was smooching) with both ladies opting for black. Schumer’s LBD is tuxedo inspired which automatically gets all the points from me.

Kerry WashingtonThe UK Glamour Women of the Year Awards look like a whole lot of fun if the Instagram shots are anything to go by and this is reflected in the red carpet attire with Kerry Washington going for 70s disco infused tube top and glitzy David Koma skirt. Now I want to go out dancing.

Gillian AndersonI don’t know if I would love this on anyone but Gillian Anderson and a tulle cape is so playful and so dramatic that I can’t not smile. Extra giddiness comes from the return of Hannibal last night and all the incredible Bedelia costuming.

Emma WillisSimple chic from Emma Willis and she never disappoints on the red carpet. While it isn’t quite Roksanda levels of stunning as last year’s the blue neck detail and texture elevates it.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonTV Ate My Wardrobe’s official Best Dressed Couple crown wearers continue to please in every single way with Diane Kruger’s magical fashion unicorn status remaining intact in vintage Roland Mouret at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Joshua Jackson’s grey suit is impeccable and there are no words to describe how he is looking at her.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ruth Wilson, Emma RobertsCulottes are a returning trend that has me invoking a loud WHY?! but Ruth Wilson is making me consider them as a fashion choice because she manages to look pretty damn cool while watching polo last weekend. Basically this event includes actresses wearing clothes I might normally be dismissive of that on this occasion look super cool. Maggie Gyllenhaal is working a pink suit with a white crop top with a pair of highly covetable sunglasses. And Emma Roberts’ yellow dress is something I would like in any sun soaked setting. Cute leopard print bag too.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

22 May

The TV season might be coming to an end as many shows have aired their finales over the last few weeks, but there are plenty of red carpet events and screenings as Emmy chatter is only just beginning. One of the major events this week was of course the end of Mad Men (and you can read all my tear stained thoughts here) and another chance for the cast to show off their sartorial prowess. While we have already documented Mindy Kaling’s Cannes fashion parade there are a few more pretty frocks to show off.

Kiernan ShipkaKiernan Shipka has been a revelation in her performance as Sally Draper and I really can’t wait to see what she does next. She has also consistently been the best dressed cast member and she’s still only 15. Please Hollywood, treat her kindly. At the Film Independent screening of Mad Men she wore a very cute Valentino white ruffled frock which complements both her age and look.

Elisabeth MossAs with Peggy Olson, Elisabeth Moss has really upped her style game over the last few years and this is a simple and fun outfit. The metallic belting is an edgy touch and I love the splash of color with the orange peep-toe pumps, even if they don’t entirely go with the rest of the ensemble.

Amy PoehlerBack to Cannes and the Inside Out premiere with another metallic belted beauty; Amy Poehler sticks with Stella McCartney and it pays off.

Melanie LaurentThe Cannes red carpet photos have a habit of looking both overwhelming and incredibly romantic in a classic movie star way. This shot of Melanie Laurent falls in the latter camp and her super sparkly Zuhair Murad Couture beaded frock is adding to this effect.

Diane KrugerAnother Cannes stunner and TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite; Diane Kruger has gone for an ethereal Prada frock for the Maryland premiere. Here she is with co-star Matthias Schoenaerts who, in not shocking news scrubs up well for the red carpet (everyone should go see Far From the Madding Crowd which is very good for reasons that also include Schoenaerts).

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter SarsgaardMaggie Gyllenhaal is deservedly once again receiving praise and accolades for her portrayal of Nessa Stein in last year’s exceptional mini-series The Honourable Woman including at this week’s 40th Annual Gracie Awards. Wearing a super chic black Alexander McQueen gown with killer cuff detail and red lipstick to swoon over Gyllenhaal poses with husband Peter Sarsgaard.

This has been a week where actresses have been confirming how awful Hollywood can be with Gyllenhaal’s comments about how she is too old at 37 to play a love interest for a 55-year-old – Amy Schumer’s ‘Last Fuckable Day‘ sketch is far too real –  and Salma Hayek spoke at length about the many obstacles she has faced in this industry.

Chelsea PerettiIt’s not just Chelsea Peretti’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine character Gina that gets all the style love from us here and at the Webby Awards where Peretti won Outstanding Comedic Performance (for the Netflix special Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats) she wore a super hypnotic all the stripes Mason by Michelle Mason frock.

Rose ByrneKeeping things casual cool on the Red Nose Day red carpet is Rose Byrne. Those pants look like they could be satin and yet somehow she is making them work.

Kerry WashingtonAt the Disney International Upfronts Kerry Washington also goes for a relaxed funky outfit and what appears to be a sweater and skirt is actually an Alexander Lewis dress. The green shimmer from her Le Silla shoes goes wonders with the metallic stripes.

OITNBThis Orange is the New Black group photo at a For Your Consideration screening and Q & A this week is delightful for several reasons including 1) Jenji Kohan’s dress, 2) so many good outfits/range of styles and 3) as a reminder that the new season is less than a month away.
