Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Emmys

22 Sep

A special Emmys “Behind the Insta-Scenes” with TV stars documenting the whole process from pre-parties, getting ready rituals to the day after.

The Orange is the New Black cast are a regular fixture on this column and they really have the whole Emmy weekend covered; it is good to see this much enthusiasm not just for their show, but the whole experience. For anyone that wants a break from all things Emmys the standard TV Instagram will appear as usual tomorrow.


One fun thing about having so many TV stars in the same place is the random group photos; case in point and Gwendoline Christie looks like a very proud mother.

Sometimes they give us ideas of actors who should star in something together or which shows should do a crossover.

Dream Scandal guest stars alert.


Kerry Washington has an extra pair of paws to help her get ready.


Plenty of accessorizes and boob wrangling choices to choose from.


As with many stars who hit the Emmy red carpet Jessica Williams gives a well deserved shout out to her glam squad and this is a really stunning photo.


Coffee is just as vital pre show as it is the day after. Filming an unaware Taraji P. Henson has turned into a bit of a sport.


The same could be said for dancing in the mirror.


Meanwhile some of the Game of Thrones cast were too busy working on the new season to join the party. Now can someone zoom in on the script text and see what it says.


I’m still very firmly on the fence about January Jones’ jumpsuit but her Insta game is always strong.

Stair chillers.

Pretty frocks and stair hanging out; for some reason this is giving me album cover vibes, butt needs more pouting.


Lots of people in this ballroom and the Orange is the New Black cast have not let us down when it comes to capturing every moment.

There were of course lots of winners. And sometimes winners gatecrashing other winners.


Denial is useful and also hilarious.

Veep sweep. #KeepinItClassy

And sometimes losing just plain sucks.


See Veep really did win a lot and this is either a table of awards or a whole lot of intricate weaponry.


Peter Dinklage has chosen to show off Maisie Williams’ amazing penguin tux clutch instead of his Emmy. I mean his Emmy isn’t dressed this fancy so this is a solid decision.


Uzo Aduba knows how to get the party started in a sea of other pink dresses.


More pink dress glory and I love that these two are besties in real life.

I must get home before midnight.

This dress really is a posing dream.


The morning after coffee is also hella important. And sunglasses.


JLaw proving once again why she is fantasy BFF material. Another tick in the box for day after awards show sunglasses.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

21 Feb

More fashion week material (this time from London), promoting new shows, magazine covers and a sneak look at my new favorite Mindy costume.

Peter Dinklage EsquirePeter Dinklage covers the Style issue of Esquire and is looking cool as fuck. While I still haven’t seen Game of Thrones (I know) I did finally see The Station Agent recently and Dinklage is all kinds of terrific (as is the rest of the impressive cast). And yes I really should get a move on with Game of Thrones as I had to block my ears at dinner last night when it was being discussed and for all the costuming reasons.

Felicity Jones BurberryFelicity Jones attended the Burberry Prorsum London Fashion Week show and she looks resplendent in a simple lemon chiffon color sweater and gold jacquard print pencil skirt. This is from the same pre-fall 2014 collection discussed as part of the Fantasy Costuming series earlier this week. Jones will be appearing on this season of Girls and she was also Hysteria, the movie I watched yesterday afternoon thanks to the stinking head cold I have right now. It felt like a prequel of sorts to Masters of Sex and the Hugh Dancy element helped with the pre-Hannibal anticipation (it’s back in one week!).

Mindy KalingMindy Kaling posted the above shot on Instagram a couple of days ago calling it “Costume of the week.” This is a well deserved title, even if it hasn’t graced screens yet (The Mindy Project is back April 1) and I have a weakness for yellow coats – Mindy has a lot of amazing coats in many different colors. Pairing it with two different monochrome patterns (hearts and checks) works in that Mindy bold clashing way and it’s a fun outfit.

Minnie DriverMinnie Driver is promoting About a Boy (previewing this Saturday) and I’m looking forward to it (Katims! David Walton!) and also slightly dubious as I really like the book/movie and the reviews have been pretty lukewarm. I’m sure I’ll still give it a watch. Driver’s splatter pattern Vivienne Westwood Anglomania frock with its irregular hemline mixes things up while also being the perfect dress for an appearance on Extra – though as usual the dude (the dreamy David Walton) gets to go super casual in jeans and sweater (you can see a sliver of him in the background on the right). I would be very much down with Driver opting for jeans over dresses, but hey this could have been as much her decision as his, but it just makes me think of all those Catching Fire photocalls of Jennifer Lawrence Diored to the max and the guys rocking up in standard day clothes. (*slight rant over*)
