Out of the Box: Look of the Week

2 Feb

A week of two “Out of the Box” posts! For everything Black Panther head here.

In this rundown; the Grammys—featuring ladysuits aplenty—premieres, fashion campaigns and a very good photoshoot. The very busy January has come to an end, but February will likely be just as hectic. Oh yes, fashion week is coming.The music industry has not been good, kind or supportive to Kesha, but Kesha showed up to the Grammys and bared her soul on stage in a heart crushing performance of “Praying.” Caroline Framke nails the hypocrisy of the music industry in this article.

At the Golden Globes the #TimesUp message was delivered in black, at the Grammys the symbol was a white rose (which wasn’t as effective). Kesha’s fabulous Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors custom look includes embroidered roses and this is a fantastic ladysuit. The silver boots are the perfect touch of glitz to proceedings.  Janelle Monáe gave a powerful introduction to Kesha’s performance; the music industry has failed Kesha, but it was still incredibly heartwarming to see so many women supporting her. Monáe also opted for the floral embroidered aspect of the white rose and I have really missed her this award season.

Luckily there is a double dose of Monàe this week. What a stunning Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. More ladysuit excellence; so many different ways to put a feminine spin on menswear. Anna Kendrick does the whole sexy thing with La Perla lace paired with Balmain plaid. Adding a dash of color with pink Casadei pumps. Sequins, sequins, sequins. This is an award season staple that is thankfully not going away and Chrissy Teigen’s YANINA Couture dress is one of the glitzy highlights from this crowded time of year.

Semi-related, but this piece about maternity wear over at Racked is one of the best things I have read this week.In custom Gucci, Lana Del Rey goes full ’30s starlet with an overt nod to actress and science pioneer Hedy Lamarr (yes I do have Karina Longworth’s voice saying her name in my head) with the crown of stars. A breathtaking look.

//Beyoncé in Birkenstocks// Who's watching #grownish

A post shared by Yara (يارا‎) Shahidi (@yarashahidi) on

Grown-ish continues to do some very fun and interesting things. Plus it is strong in the style stakes. Including this brief homage to Lemonade.

Yara Shahidi’s ditched the heels she wears in the scene for comfier Birkenstocks. 2 Dope Queens makes its podcast to TV special leap tonight on HBO (February 2); Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson have been making the talk show round this week much to my Instagram Story watching joy. Both women make consistently fun fashion choices and at their premiere it was no different.

Williams wears a velvet belted MISA frock, Robinson’s gone burnt orange Free People pants and halter. Both have a ’70s vibe without looking like they’re matchy matchy.

And because I can’t resist the DVF suit version of Danai Gurira’s frock. Another ladysuit winner. Celebrity pregnancy confirmations range in the same way it does for a regular person to announce (or not). There are so many tacky ways to talk about a pregnant celeb and the official bump unveiling discussion is one of them. Anyone who has seen a recent photo of Kirsten Dunst knows she is pregnant, but this Rodarte S/S ’18 campaign apparently counts as her official word on the matter (there is no accompanying statement).

The photos by Autumn de Wilde are beautiful, as is the whole famous person filled lookbook.

And yes I am very happy about this news because while I can be grossed out by ways certain publications discuss the baby bump as if it is its own being (“showcasing their baby bump”); I am also very fond of this celebrity couple. Contradictions and multitudes.

collection featuring a lot of amazing women including Danai Gurira in ruffled polka dots. I’m not going to read this conversation between Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet until I have seen Lady Bird (on Monday!), but I really wanted to bask in the sweaters. The Good Place season two finale was indeed very, very good. There are not enough words to describe what a wonderful show this is. Thankfully we have Manny Jacinto talking to GQ about Jason, Blake Bortles, the phenomenon that is this show and his parents. The accompanying photos are also part of the good place.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Jan

Last week felt like a busy “Out of the Box,” then the Golden Globes and so many other events took place. Coverage of the very different Golden Globes can be found across three posts including the activists that attended and why it is important to credit designers. Being a feminist and caring about fashion are two concepts that don’t have to exist separately.

Post Globes parties, other awards, premieres and looks from TCA panels are featured. For the Critics’ Choice awards—which were held last night—there will be a rundown post soon. Busy Philipps is usually Michelle Williams’ award show date. But after discussing using her place of privilege in respect to what has been going on in Hollywood in her Harper’s Bazaar interview, Williams came up with the idea of bringing activists as guests. Williams was accompanied by Tarana Burke, the woman who created #MeToo over a decade ago and seven other A-list actresses followed suit.

Don’t even get me started on the shit Marky Mark pulled with regard to the reshoots.

Later in the night the pair did hangout, Busy’s Stories included the ridiculous question a paparazzi dude asked Michelle “What’s next for women?” But if Busy did decide to put this Q on a tee or sweatshirt and donate the money to #TimesUp I would be first in line.

Blurry mirror selfie with my bb.

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

Black iridescent Jeffrey Dodd looks great on Busy, but I am also very much a fan of their day after outfits. This is such a fun spin on the ladysuit by Sonequa Martin-Green; cropped/high-waisted Vitor Zerbinato suit with high ruffled collar Elisabetta Franchi shirt. The latter is making me feel like my Alienist as a style influence prediction isn’t totally off.Amy Brenneman looks cool af at the HBO Golden Globes after party and I am still mad Leftovers got no love. I never thought I would be this enamored with a sheer turtleneck, but holy wow is Tessa Thompson working another fabulous twist on menswear inspiration in Alexandre Vauthier.

And after calling out Lena Dunham for doing the most Lena Dunham thing, Thompson got embroiled in an apology/not apology news cycle. She handled it well and with eloquence, even though her first statement didn’t need explaining or walking back as it sounded pretty accurate. But, Hollywood. Or as Ira would say, “Keep It” (check out his new podcast, which is also great).Including this photo mostly because of how great Gaten Matarazzo and Joe Keery are together in season 2 of Stranger Things. Also because I just remembered Keery was in Molly’s Game. His hair was just as impressive. Gillian Anderson got a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. Her new shorter, blonder do has been getting quite the workout this week, much to my delight. This silver number by Sophia Kah is my favorite of the three dresses she has worn this week. The specs with the glitz are excellent and X-Files co-star Annabeth Gish is also crushing the style stakes.

Oh, and this week’s episode of The X-Files was incredible, especially in comparison with last week’s mythology mess. So many fun Mulder and Scully scenes. Their chemistry is still off the charts and enough to make me feel like I am fourteen again. Lots of giggling.  There’s been a lot of dressed up Greta Gerwig this week, but here she is at a SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversation event in a super cozy sweater just to mix it up.

After Lady Bird won at the Golden Globes, Gerwig was asked about her position on Woody Allen as someone that has worked with him in the past. She fumbled with a non-answer; it was disappointing even if I could recognize that it was once again a woman being asked to justify another man’s abuse. But, she did follow up with a response that is far more definitive on her position and also acknowledges why it is important to speak up.At the 2018 Film Society Of Lincoln Center & Film Comment luncheon, Greta Gerwig got daytime dressed up in this fabulous pop of floral color. Get Out’s Lil Rel Howery took the suit/turtleneck pairing to new levels in this amazing color combination. At the National Board of Review Awards, Gal Gadot wears an Elie Saab dress that is reminiscent of her blue frock from Wonder Woman. Minus the giant sword of course.The Black Panther press tour is approaching and I am so ready. Lupita Nyong’o looks in command of a space ship in a sparkly Balmain ensemble.I finished Maureen Orth’s Vulgar Favors this week, the book the new American Crime Story is based on so my anticipation levels for the show are now even higher. Penelope Cruz gives Versace-adjacent vibes in velvet custom Stella McCartney.Queen Judith Light has been cast in the perfect part for her and she lights up the red carpet as always.As far as I can tell, Anna Chancellor is not in American Crime Story, but I wish she was. But I do love this patterned frock and ankle boots combo even if it looks more Sundance attire.

This is also a good time to mention how much I miss The Hour. If any show deserves another season it is this one.TCA is still going, but it is the FX panels from last Friday that I am mostly interested in. Including Edgar Ramirez wearing a lovely sweater while discussing American Crime Story. I would love to know what Darren Criss is reacting to. The last TCA panel for The Americans and Keri Russell brought out the polka dot pussy-bow blouse big guns. I’m still in denial that it is ending. And their TV family was rather well coordinated, all getting the black/grey/white memo. I mentioned this on Twitter, but Keidrich Sellati looks like he should be hanging out with the Stranger Things teens in star collared Givenchy. Holly Taylor’s long jacket/legs out is the perfect spin on panel attire and I am still super impressed with how The Americans broke the teens in a prestige drama curse.Atlanta returns for season 2 in March and I am so ready. At the TCA panel Zazie Beetz brought all the floral ensemble glory, while Donald Glover and Brain Tyree Henry worked the more casual versions of their red carpet style.At yesterday’s HBO session, Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams were there to discuss 2 Dope Queens. And Phoebe is offering up another fun take on the ladysuit including a faux fur sash. I am very much looking forward to these specials.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week – Part 2

30 Dec

Rounding off the Best of 2016 series with Part 2 of our favorite “Out of the Box” moments. Last week we dedicated the first part to the magazine covers that stood out and now it is time for style highs from red carpets, events, awards and panels.

The only rule was they had to appear as part of “Out of the Box” and we’ve got a good mix of casual, fancy and everything in-between.Evan Rachel WoodBest LadySuitWatch2016

So many fantastic Evan Rachel Wood ladysuit moments in 2016 and it was super hard to pick a winner. This red one is incredible, but the collar, lipstick and metallic pumps from back in June take the prize.Yara Shahidi

Tracee Ellis RossBest Sequins: TV Mother/Daughter Edition

Yara Shahidi is not only 2016’s best dressed teen, but an overall style icon for the year. This super sparkly sequin Tracy Reese dress that she wore to the BET Awards gives me so much joy as does Tracee Ellis Ross at PaleyFest in March.julianne-mooreBest Sequins – Awards Edition

Continuing the sequin love and we’ve got the whole year covered as this was pretty recent; Julianne Moore in Tom Ford to celebrate Tom Ford at one of the many film award season events. Alicia VikanderBest Post-Oscar Party

It is not just the Oscar that makes Alicia Vikander’s post-Oscar Louis Vuitton much better than the yellow Beauty and the Beast style gown she wore to the actual ceremony. Everything about this is incredible and just because it is black it is far from boring; so many fantastic sequins in 2016.Brie LarsonBest Pattern – Eyes

First up Jacob Tremblay is 2016’s best dressed kid and he also outdid a lot of his older male counterparts. At the pre-Oscar photocall his tie matches his onscreen mom Brie Larson’s super fun Emilia Wickstead skirt and blouse. An instant standout style moment that brings much needed whimsy. Mary Elizabeth WinsteadBest Pattern – Lips 

Mary Elizabeth Winstead was not only one of the best dressed characters on TV this year, but she also brought it on the red carpet. This Victoria Beckham red lip patterned dress is very high on my covet list.Kirsten DunstBest Cannes 

Serving on the jury at Cannes this year meant so many amazing Kirsten Dunst ensembles from the fancy to casual chic; it is this yellow Dior daytime perfection with an A+ red lipstick that was my favorite. Lupita Nyong'oBest Pattern Clashing 

Pleats tend to make me want to twirl and Lupita Nyongo’s colorful Prada frock at the Obie Awards is giving me those feelings. It could look like a lot against the equally bold floral backdrop and yet Nyong’o is totally pulling this off.Aubrey PlazaTatiana Maslany ColbertBest Talk Show Entrance 

Aubrey Plaza is a forever style icon and has featured in these end of year lists in the past. First she started my pleated leather skirt obsession and in June 2016 she arrived at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in pretty much my dream casual outfit. Tatiana Maslany on the other hand is doing the sneakers with heels in her hand thing while also arriving at The Late Show and she is another casual dress queen. caitriona-balfeBest Black and White 

Everything about Caitriona Balfe’s Burberry gown is a dream at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards showing that she looks fantastic in any era. I’m excited to see what she will wear to the Golden Globes in a couple of weeks.mads-mikkelsenBest Hannibal

Mads Mikkelsen looks really great in a suit and this is the first Best of year without any Hannibal. Thankfully at the Doctor Strange premiere Mads is wearing a suit that wouldn’t look out of place on the famous cannibal he plays. matthew-rhys-and-keri-russell-operaBest Cape 

Serving up so much drama at the Met Opera in September and Keri Russell has worn Stephane Rolland for three very dressy events this year – the other two being at the White House and Emmys – and this black caped number is my overall favorite. A very fancy date night with Matthew Rhys. constance-zimmer-and-shiri-applebyBest Friends 

Thankfully things are a lot better IRL between Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby than their UnREAL counterparts and while season 2 was super messy/missed the mark in places, the subsequent promo tour and red carpet appearances always delivered.

This is from the Elle Women in Hollywood celebration at the end of October; they are giving off metallic dress and flaming hot jumpsuit excellence.Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Olsen, Michael B. JordanBest Sunglasses

As the Fug Girls like to say “Everybody looks hotter in sunglasses” and the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic helps prove this theory. Summer wardrobe delights from Elizabeth Olsen, Michael B. Jordan, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale.TCA You're the WorstBest TCA 

Panel outfits are an “Out of the Box” fave as they tend to deliver on the casual cool. With Aya Cash she also delivers on great lipstick and she also let me know what brand and color (Inglot 13). I picked it up while on honeymoon and it is fantastic. Thanks, Aya!2 Dope QueensBest Crown

To my favorite podcast of the year and two women that made 2016 a whole lot better (including the time they were there for me when I traveled home on the train after my dad died in July). This fabulous shot of Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson from The New York Times puts the crown in 2 Dope Queens.Sarah Paulson and Sterling K BrownBest Look of the Week

I said this at the time and I’ll say it again, but the way Sarah Paulson is looking at Sterling K. Brown is how I would look at Sterling K. Brown. Marcia and Chris 4EVA.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Oct

TV Instagram mourns those lost on The Walking Dead (spoilers ahead), celebrates a birthday on Game of Thrones, gets excited about A+ guest stars and has a whole lot of style on and off set.

A post shared by Lauren Cohan (@laurencohan) on

 

The biggest TV event this week was the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead and even though I quit watching last year the first thing I checked after the episode aired was the identity of the departed. The Walking Dead is a show I generally keep up with just in case I ever want to go back and this is mostly through the Richonne tag on Tumblr.

My other favorite character is/was Glenn and this photo by Steven Yeun’s TV wife, Lauren Cohan is a heartbreaker. I am very excited to see what Yeun will be doing next.

@cudlitz

A post shared by Steven Yeun (@steveyeun) on

 

Steven Yeun paid tribute to the other Negan victim from the TWD season premiere in a very cool atmospheric shot of Michael Cudlitz.

 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returned last week with a fantastic episode (and songs) and everything about this photo fills me with joy.

 

And in excellent Crazy Ex-Girlfriend casting news I offer you the above.

 

If I *had* to pick a favorite clone it would be Helena and I cannot wait to see more of her adventures in the woods with Donnie and Alison.

 

Paparazzi got some BIG photos this week while Game of Thrones was shooting (don’t click this link if you want to remain spoiler free – I have SO many costuming thoughts). This is not these photos and there is something very unnerving about Dora and SpongeBob hanging in Westeros.

A post shared by aidybryant (@aidybryant) on

 

Get ready for an onslaught of Halloween celeb photos after this weekend, but meanwhile enjoy the SNL ladies and this fabulous sketch. While I’m on the subject of this holiday; check out my piece on teen TV classics, costumes and growing up.

 

Everything about this is stunning.

 

I’m enjoying this season of The Last Man on Earth as much as I’m enjoying Will Forte’s drawn on eyebrows and Carol’s fabulous top. So that is a lot and it will be fun to see what the new location will bring.

 

Also high on the fun list is Timeless and it continues to capture the same feelings that early Sleepy Hollow gave me; the core cast is just as delightful.

Abbi Jacobson and Jon Glaser serving up very different interpretations of talk show style with Glaser opting for something from Jon Glaser Loves Gear. In non-shocking news, I am very excited about Abbi’s new book.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Aug

The 2016 summer TCA press tour continued this week (and finished yesterday), which means another round of fabulous panel and party attire. This week has already given an instant entry into magazine cover of the year and the TCA awards delivered on the Mr Robot cast style dominance (and for my take on some of the costuming this season head here and here).

It isn’t all TCA on “Out of the Box” this week as Emmy campaigning continues and one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s favorite podcasts gets profiled in The New York Times.Taraji P HensonAt the Fox All-Star party Taraji P. Henson in Emanuel Ungaro is pretty much wearing my platonic ideal of a floral dress; ideal because it is perfect for a casual summer event AND because you could throw on some ankle boots with knit tights for when it starts to get colder.

The dash of pink nail polish with black Alex Wagner sandals is an excellent finishing touch.Yara ShahidiSo this shot of Yara Shahidi is from last week’s ABC day/Black-ish panel, which I somehow missed until I saw Shahidi’s Instagram. From H to T (thanks Tyra) this is a fantastic look throwing in some whimsy with leopard print shoes and ticking all my collar/bow boxes. Shahidi continues to impress not just on a teen style scale, but in general.Mindy KalingMindy Kaling goes classic in a black Dolce & Gabbana at the Hulu Mindy Project panel, but kicks the whole look with some fun peep toe pumps and a second case of fabulous pink nail polish this week.Lizzy CaplanThis Roland Mouret frock is a lot of dress to pull off and Lizzy Caplan is just the person to do that at the CBS, CW and Showtime TCA party; crushing it on non-boring shoe and lip color choices too. Claire Danes and Mandy PatinkinAt a quick glance and if you switched out the bottle of water for a cocktail then this looks more like a vacation snap; Mandy Patinkin has gone full casual and Claire Danes is still giving off a tanned glow in a stunning green and orange textured frock with a floral trim. Instead it is the Homeland panel and here’s what they revealed about the forthcoming sixth season. You're the WorstThe You’re the Worst cast continue to delight in the run up to season 3 and Aya Cash was kind enough to tell me on Twitter what lip color/brand she is wearing. I am also very much into Cash’s Rachel Comey ensemble and Kether Donohue looks lovely in blush pink. Plus, Desmin Borges and Chris Geere do the casual/smart panel balance well. TCA You're the WorstAnd one from the You’re the Worst panel because just look at these beauties.Keri Russell and Matthew RhysSpeaking of which and as Emmy campaigning season continues the “it is about time” Emmy nominees, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys have given another joint interview (this time for Deadline) and as with the THR one it is a delight of finishing each other’s sentences and talking about The Americans. This one goes more in-depth into last season and they also discuss how Russell’s pregnancy ended up giving Rhys the biggest episode of the season to direct (which he crushed) and this also happens to be both their episode submission.

This Mark Mann photo also looks like a great way to sell chambray and seersucker shirts for all your upstate New York vacation needs. 2 Dope QueensA birthday crown for Jessica Williams and a tiara for 2 Dope Queens co-host Phoebe Robinson at their show, which also happened to be Williams’ birthday and featured a surprise guest (who also happens to be a former boss). This New York Times profile covers that night and discusses this podcast and ladies fave of mine; here’s to them recording an episode when I am in New York next month. *insert prayer hands emoji*

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

10 Aug

TV Instagram is busy again with a lot of shows back from hiatus and this week’s behind the scenes highlights include Jane the VirginYou’re the Worst and iZombie. Plus we have TCA style, Rachel Bloom’s male gaze take on casting notices and a Sex and the City project I do want to see.

 

Joining the ranks of those returning to work is the Jane the Virgin cast and there is a notable person sitting at that table.

We're baaaaack…. #janethevirgin #season3

A post shared by Yael Grobglas (@yaelgrobglas) on

 

More Jane the Virgin delights with almost hat twins Yael Grobglas and Gina Rodriguez. It looks like someone will be wearing a wig for at least the start of the season.

Goodbye hiatus beard. See you soon @cwjanethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

While we’re on the subject of changing hair and it will come as no surprise that I love a good hiatus beards, but there is not much that can be done to hide this level of grizzle. For Justin Baldoni the beard now only exists in the form of old photos and future hiatus dreams.

 

After posting a photo of the super depressing casting notices from Backstage, Rachel Bloom wrote some very similar sounding descriptions for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend characters but with a male gaze. “Singing a plus.” 

You'll never believe who I ran into today…

It was announced at TCA that Transparent season 3 will return Friday, September 23 and I’m looking forward to seeing this family again.

 

From one stylish TV family to an even more stylish TV family and the cast of Black-ish at TCA.

Another installment of my series: "Watching 'Sex and the City' at 2 In The Morning." In short, Charlotte is ig about not giving head. Like you don't have to treat dining on the sauseege like it's your fav flav of Ben & Jerry's. Like nothing compares to Ben & Jer – a'doy – but to say I'M NEVER GIVING BLOWJOBS and expect a guy to view the rest of his life sans beejs as anything but the series of unfortunate events that Lemony Snicket lived thru is dumb. If you want a guy to eat your Morimorto- prepared soosh (sushi) aka vajeen, then your mouth needs to roam his dome the way that Julie Andrews roamed and rolled up on them in hills in "The Sound Of Music." #SexAndTheCity #SATC #OralSexIsForEverybody #BeAGoodCitizenOfThisPlanetAndGobbleOnSomeEggplant

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jul

Lots of behind the scenes treats this week including soon to be returning shows such as You’re the Worst and Looking (in a one off movie form). Plus the first table read of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 2 and a whole lot of style highlights from Instagram.

Cable sex scenes vs network sex scenes. Modesty cover comparison.

A post shared by Aya Cash (@maybeayacash) on

 

Aya Cash gives an inside look into the different types of cover ups worn when filming sex scenes on cable and on network. Yes I googled (or rather Binged as I’m on my mother’s laptop and maybe on a CW show from two years ago) Shibue; they have a lot of products.

So excited we found the table where they shot @loveonnetflix !!

A post shared by Aya Cash (@maybeayacash) on

 

All the LOLs at Aya Cash and this not so subtle shade throwing.

 

I am already highly anticipating this episode. As I mentioned last week 2 Dope Queens turned my teary state into a much needed moment of laughter and this is one of many endorsements I have for this podcast.

 

The Looking movie is almost here and while I am not ready to say goodbye, I am ready for all the behind the scenes photos like this.

 

BrainDead is a lot of fun and pretty much the ideal summer show. It doesn’t entirely know what it wants to be tonally, but I could watch Aaron Tveit and Mary Elizabeth Winstead heating up the screen all day long.

First day of school y'all and look who's here. @oitnb @netflix @tarynmanning

And the Orange is the New Black cast are back on set for season 5.

 

UnREAL hasn’t been hitting the heights of season 1, but this week’s episode was a turn in the right direction and the it happened to be directed by none other than Shiri Appleby who crushed it (and me) both in front of and behind the camera.

 

Busy Philipps is on a dress hot streak of late and this is yet another reason to fire up that 100 emoji.

 

Busy Philipps is also killing it in the robes stakes and I’m gonna go ahead and add this to the robes I love list.

Also on the recently followed list and I am so ready to look back at the many varied costumes on Sex and the City.

 

Also looking back as yesterday was the fifteenth anniversary of Legally Blonde and Reese Witherspoon celebrated in style with an Elle Woods costume retrospective including this bikini number.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

25 May

There isn’t so much on set action this week as most shows are on some form of hiatus, but we still have plenty of behind the scenes treats including the UnREAL press tour, Vulture Fest, some new exciting projects, lots of glam and the odd bit of TV making magic.

At last I meet her! Gina Rodriguez @hereisgina at @eclipsedbway!

And it’s double Lupita and Gina as I couldn’t pick between the two photos. This one also gives a better look at Gina Rodriguez’s hiatus hair (and here’s a more dramatic angle) and I love it so much. Such a bold and fantastic cut.

 

I am behind on every podcast I listen to at the moment, but I am very excited to hear this one from Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson aka 2 Dope Queens from Vulture Fest (which pretty much had my dream lineup).

 

More Kevin Garvey Leftovers beard evidence (and according to the panel they have just finished shooting the Texas section of season 3).

 

A before Vulture Fest getting ready shot from Carly Chaikin and this is kinda making me want to figure out how to use Snapchat (my username is frazbelina). Also for more from the Mr Robot panel head here.

 

We have to wait until August 31 for season 3 of You’re the Worst so for now enjoy this collection of photos from the Vulture Fest Pop Culture Trivia Game Show.

While we’re at it here is a nice reminder of way back when and that shooting season 3 will be underway very soon.

 

Puppy heaven on The Late Show for Emilia Clarke (love her green dress) and she discussed the recent Free the D Game of Thrones moment. I’m not exactly sure this is what was being asked for (no one wants to hear about warts) but I guess it is a start?

Shiri Appleby didn’t get to play with puppies, but she did pose with this Late Show cushion and the UnREAL cast are doing an excellent job on the Instagram promo front with plenty of photos.

 

Cute dresses and shoes ahoy! And we are under two weeks away from new UnREAL (returns Monday, June 6).

 

I am also beyond excited about this and Jenny Slate’s outfit is pretty much the platonic ideal of casual wear. Can never go wrong with jeans, Cons, a grey sweater and sunglasses.

At work:) #TopoftheLake2

This week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes” should be renamed “Things I Am Very Excited About.”

 

Priyanka Chopra flies in gown style when hopping from one event to another and this also reminds me that I am about 5 episodes behind on Quantico (I am behind on so much). This dress/color on her is fantastic.

 

LadySuitWatch2016 alert! Anne Hathaway was in the fantastic Jenny Lewis video for “One of the Guys” and here she is giving a nod to Lewis in custom Jenny Packham while promoting Alice Through the Looking Glass.

When you show up to work dressed just like ya girl

Allison Williams’ style is morphing into Marnie on the final season of Girls while Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke are accidentally twinning in very similar checks.

I needed a laugh today. This did it for me. Thanks @cushjumbohere #bra

Cush Jumbo and Adrienne C. Moore are currently performing in an all-female production of The Taming of the Shrew and there are plenty of ways to adapt Shakespeare as the above clip shows.
