Out of the Box: Look of the Week

26 Jan

Coats, boots and sweaters are all on the “Look of the Week” menu and Sundance taking place during award season is my fave kind of style whiplash. It is also a sartorial highlight for me because I cannot resist that slouchy (but often super cool) winter fashion. For all things fancy and fun gowns check out our SAG Awards coverage.

Plus Paris Couture Week, public appearances to promote things and some more amazing magazine covers. January, you keep on treating us (and keeping me very busy).Obsessed with Tessa Thompson’s Belstaff skirt and jacket, Cos turtleneck and silver Alchimia di Ballin silver ankle boots. Sorry to Bother You co-stars Lakeith Stanfield and Armie Hammer are also crushing their respective Sundance looks.

Mafiosos in transit

A post shared by Armie Hammer (@armiehammer) on

Armie has had a very busy week. Sadly there was no Oscar nomination (though I am more bummed out for Michael Stuhlbarg), but he has been promoting Call Me By Your Name in Italy in Paris with co-star Timothée Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino. Lots of great Instagram Stories content. Traveling in double Adidas style.

And there is also this delightful interview on French talk show Quotidien. Bringing many screencap delights to my Twitter TL this morning. There’s no English subs on the second part (so far), but it is worth watching even if you can’t understand everything. Zineb Bayad recreated scenes from CMBYN with photos and she is in the audience, ending up in a Hammer/Chalamet sandwich hug. Back to the fabulous coats and boots of Sundance with Steven Yeun, also starring in Sorry to Bother You. I am very excited to see his post-Walking Dead career. A stunning Gabriela Hearst leopard print coat on Elizabeth Gillies; I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone that has been wearing all manner of extravagant costuming on Dynasty over the last few months. Sensible boots and fabulous coats are not mutually exclusive. Got to love a fancy hat too. Gillies’ Arizona co-star Rosemarie DeWitt also got the leopard print memo, much to my delight. I too have indulged in this pattern this week, hopefully the cardigan I have ordered from Topshop arrives tomorrow while I was writing this I got a text to say it has arrived. A day early! Check my Instagram for pictures when it does.Super excited for the 2 Dope Queens HBO specials and the promotion of this has also got me hyped. Great ’70s inspired looks from Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams. Issa Rae gives good Sundance sweater. At the A Boy, A Girl, A Dream premiere, Insecure’s Jay Ellis looks just as stylish as Lawrence. Looks like camo print is making a bit of a comeback. As also seen on Priyanka Chopra at the Burden the Park premiere. A fun mix of smart/casual that makes me glad that I am a hat and red lipstick person.

 

 

For something slightly more glam; Maggie Gyllenhaal in one of my brand faves with another Vampire’s Wife dress that I want in my closet.And a dash of ladysuit fabulousness from Aubrey Plaza in pink Rebecca Minkoff at “An Evening with Beverly Luff Lin.” A #TimesUp red beanie to promote the movement and because keeping your head warm is important (my mother drilled this into me, which might also be why I am a hat person).  Double Aubrey Plaza because I like this dress and Michael Shannon has paid attention to my mother, it would seem.From Utah to Paris; at the Berluti Menswear F/W 2018 show Isabelle Huppert continues to exude everything cool and Timothée Chalmet dips his toe back in the velvet suit well. While promoting Waco, Taylor Kitsch bundles up in a leather jacket and scarf combo refueling the crush that has never really gone away.Sequins are everywhere at the moment and I am very much on board with this trend. At Jimmy Kimmel Live! Viola Davis leans into this with a pair of gold sequined pants; everything about this look is fantastic.

On the show Davis also discussed the Scandal/HTGAWM crossover. Those sequined pants also look great on screen.Black Panther is less than a month away, which means we’re going to be seeing a lot more of this cast. I am excited about all of this. Lupita scores another stunner of a cover and the accompanying Hollywood Reporter shoot is just as beautiful.

In the interview she talks about the piece she wrote for The New York Times about her own horrifying experience with Harvey Weinstein:

“I felt uncomfortable in my silence, and I wanted to liberate myself from it and contribute to the discussion. That was just what I felt I needed to do, quite viscerally. I couldn’t sleep. I needed to get it out.”

Earlier this week I spoke to costume design icon Ruth E. Carter about the Black Panther costumes and I cannot wait to share what we talked about. Look out for that nearer the release of the film.  A VERY good week for magazine covers. This is also sparkly gown perfection.

Friday Night Lights cast hangouts get me every single time. This is no exception.

 

Now for NYFW and at Opening Ceremony this is a whole lot of comic actors to adore, all wearing fabulous clothes.

Thank you so much @britandco & @tracy_reese for my very first #NYFW!!! I had an amazing time covering this one of a kind garden fashion show/presentation, I got to talk to Whoopi Goldberg and @thesheertruth, bump into @elleusa superstar @nikkiogun, check out the models, which were a collection of professional peeps and everyday women, plus my Spanx stayed in place the whole time, and Tracy, who has dressed FLOTUS, gifted me with three dresses. ANYWAY! Stay tuned for my videos covering this amazing show. I'll be posting them soon. And start pre-ordering clothes from Tracy's new collection. It's stunning! #GodIsReal #IFeelLikeCarrieBradshaw #BlackGirlMagic Dress: @tracy_reese Shoes: @aldo_shoes Hair & Makeup: @delinamedhin Photos: @delinamedhin & @delicate_plumber

So many heart eyes at Phoebe Robinson in Tracy Reese at NYFW and I am really looking forward to reading You Can’t Touch My Hair, which is out next month.

Winter Is Here

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

All eyes are on Belfast to see which Game of Thrones cast members are heading to Northern Ireland for season 7 and while this bar hang is not a guarantee that Sansa and Arya will reunite any time soon, I can but dream. I am also here for Maisie William’s double drink choice of a cocktail and what looks like a hot beverage.

 

The month of everything happening continues with the Toronto Film Festival and Hidden Figures is on my most anticipated list (see also La La LandManchester by the SeaColossal and Jackie). Glen Powell is pretty much the main reason I stuck with Scream Queens and he’s got the best co-star hangouts at TIFF.

 

Top notch prom posing skills.

Also at TIFF is Uzo Aduba and this is an incredible pre-premiere shot.

 

So happy that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won a couple of Emmys over the weekend. Expect a lot more Emmy Insta next week.

 

I’m still confident in saying that BrainDead was my favorite show of the summer and while I am sad it is probably done, the finale kept up the absurd/fun/weird/sexy/amazing costume levels.

 

Is Liv getting a zombie dog? This is a serious cutie.

 

Masters of Sex returned this week with a promising start to the season after last year’s messiness. Niecy Nash was a welcome presence and she won’t put up with Bill’s self-pity.

The boots and jeans look works well on Joshua Jackson so thank you, Affair costume department.

 

Time for the weekly installment of I heart the You’re the Worst team; at work on a Saturday.

 

And then followed by spending the evening together.
