Out of the Box: Look of the Week

8 Jan

Happy First “Out of the Box” of 2016 and award season is taking over with a dash of the winter TCA and the first stunning magazine cover of the year. Now is not the time to go big on the red carpet because there’s still plenty of dress/tux wearing time to go, but there is plenty to love about this week’s offerings including the two big trends; lots of green and pattern clashing.

Brie Larson and Jacob TemblayI mentioned earlier this week that we would be seeing a lot more of Brie Larson on here and I’m making good on this promise with a double outfit entry from Larson. First up at the Palm Springs International Film Festival she wore this simple emerald green Jason Wu dress to pick up the Breakthrough Performance Award. Accompanied by her Room co-star Jacob Tremblay showing that being a kid doesn’t mean you can’t look dapper (and super adorable to boot) in a tux.

Saoirse RonanAnother award recipient at the Palm Springs festivities and Saoirse Ronan took home the International Star Award for her magnificent turn in Brooklyn. Here is where the pattern clashing might enter ‘too much’ territory, but I love this Duro Olowu frock and it is the right amount of chaos for me especially as she paired it with just as bright orange sandals. There’s nothing beige about this look.

Brie LarsonBack to Brie Larson and this Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress mixes pattern and texture in a way that shouldn’t work, but does (although I have a feeling there will be some who disagree with me on this one). It’s like someone deep dived into Alice in Wonderland and came up with this.

Jessica ChastainMore emerald green and it might be a safe bet pairing this color with a redhead, but it doesn’t stop it being a winning formula as Jessica Chastain demonstrates at the National Board of Review Gala in satin Carl Kapp.

Peter Sarsgaard and Magie GyllenghaalLooking super loved up on the NBR red carpet and showing that a black dress can be the killer option is Maggie Gyllenhaal with husband Peter Sarsgaard. Her hair looks fantastic and The Row frock blends 30s and 70s cool.

Claire Danes and Hugh DancyOver at the People’s Choice Awards (which always makes me think of this Comeback episode) and brightening up proceedings are another TV Ate My Wardrobe couple fave; Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy always look great together even if his haircut is a little too short for my taste. I assume it is for his new show The Path, but I miss his Will Graham slight unruly wave. Danes looks fabulous in metallic Burberry and I guess this will have to make up for the lack of Golden Globes nomination and therefore non-red carpet appearance this weekend.

Julianna Moore and Kristen StewartOne final green entry and another redhead in this color and Julianne Moore looks casual cool at the New York Film Critics’ Circle Awards presenting Kristen Stewart – slaying in Chanel leather and lace – with Best Supporting Actress for Clouds of Sils Maria. Over at Vulture they present the case of why this pair are the BFFs we never knew we wanted and yep I am down with that.

Amandla Stenberg Teen VogueAmandla Stenberg covers the new issue of Teen Vogue and it is both a fantastic photo editorial and conversation with Solange Knowles discussing her school video project on cultural appropriation “Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows,” which went viral and made sure people knew Stenberg was someone to pay attention to. They also talk about the horrific comments that were made when she was cast in The Hunger Games, feeling comfortable in her own skin, besties Kiernan Shipka, Willow Smith and Tavi Gevinson, plus future projects.

To read the full interview and see more fabulous photos from the shoot head here. This is better than any recent Vogue cover I can remember and their editorial team should take note.

Scott SpeedmanBecause I’m not going to deny you Scott Speedman’s bare ankles at the Animal Kingdom TCA panel.

Constance ZimmerA slightly random TCA note to end on, but here is Constance Zimmer (who was there on UnREAL duty – so excited for S2) looking as happy as you should be when playing with a dog. I also appreciate the close up on those heels which glam up her outfit.

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.
