Out of the Box: Look of the Week

1 May

Fancy frocks aplenty at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. Plus various other red carpet looks on this edition of Look of the Week including bold prints and the 70s influence I can’t get enough of reigns once again.

Gillian JacobsGillian Jacobs is killing it in Peter Pilotto showing why she is a resident Out of the Box member as she often leans towards daring, patterned choices like this one. Pairing this dress with black strappy platforms and super soft curls mixes retro glamour with Old Hollywood chic; Jacobs looks stunning.

Lucy LiuA beaded Naeem Khan dress for Lucy Liu and this is simple chic at its best. Red lipstick adds an extra pop and the hair down approach adds a softness to the whole ensemble.

Darby StanchfieldAs the White House Press Secretary on Scandal we’re used to seeing Darby Stanchfield standing behind a podium in various forms of business wear so it is good to see her in something a little more fancy (and with a whole lot less drama going on) and this ivory Ludmila Corlateanu gown is just that.

Troian BellisarioAlso taking a break from TV drama is Troian Bellisario from Pretty Little Liars and even though I stopped watching some time ago I still really want to know who A is. The gold belt detail enlivens this white dress and there is a dash of 70s summer cocktail party to the whole cut of it.

Juno TempleSpeaking of my favorite style decade here is Juno Temple at the Far from the Madding Crowd premiere embracing 70s print in Saint Laurent and I am reminded by both Temple and Gillian Jacobs that platform heels are the only ones that don’t break my feet. Well those and the gaudy metallic silver wedges I wore when I was 16. I probably won’t be digging those out again.

Sophie TurnerTaking a break from capes is Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner decked out in Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 at the annual Garden Brunch in Washington DC over the weekend and as with Michelle Williams in everything Louis Vuitton I am definitely feeling the mixture of textures, patterns, buttons and zips.

Mae Whitman and Mamie GummerLady suit alert! Mae Whitman wears the appropriately titled “Boob Suit” from Rachel Antonoff at Refinery29’s digital content presentation (so much exciting stuff on their roster) looking equal parts edgy and adorable. Of course there are bonus red lipstick points and I am forever drawing hearts around her name.

Mamie Gummer does the whole effortless chic thing in skinny jeans, white tee suede boots and a coat that skirts near bathrobe territory, but manages to look super cool at the same time. Yes I would spill something down both outfits in an instant and be super sad about it.

Elisabeth MossAs with my complicated feelings about jumpsuits/rompers, the crop top is another one that falls into this category. Elisabeth Moss at the Chaplin Award Gala in Nha Khanh is the perfect amount of crop to the top with that slight sliver of torso on display (don’t get me wrong I am all for other people wearing this garment, but it terrifies me personally). This is a really pretty outfit and the graphic print/length of the skirt gives it a retro feel and still manages to avoid all Mad Men influence comparisons.

Mad Men 7.11 Peggy dressI wrote a whole thing about Peggy in the most recent episode of Mad Men but one thing I didn’t cover was how much I love this dress. Peggy’s style has been so much sharper this season and this is partly down to her growing confidence and because the new decade is hitting all her sartorial points. I would 100% wear this today.

NYFW Fantasy Costuming: Rachel Antonoff Fall 2015 for Girls

14 Feb

The first Fantasy Costuming of 2015 courtesy of New York Fashion Week and Rachel Antonoff’s Fall RTW 2015 collection is a mixture of subversive whimsy. Scrolling through the photos it became clear rather quickly that this selection is ideal for the characters on Girls. There is a preppy edge to some of the pieces; which is perfect for both Marnie and Shoshanna, plus Hannah has a tendency to lean this way.

Even as the characters on Girls continue to grow up they can fall back on old tendencies which is why the provocative edge of some these pieces is dream wear for Hannah. And she has definitely worn something that resembles pajamas while out and about cycling in Iowa. A family connection is also present as Rachel Antonoff’s brother Jack is dating Lena Dunham and Hannah has already worn Rachel Antonoff on the show including some very lovely shoes in season 2. As always the Fantasy Costuming selections are inspired by the costume design from the show in question – Jenn Rogien- and are in no way suggesting this character should wear a specific item mentioned.

Rachel Antonoff ovariesA sweater with the female reproductive system pretty much screams Hannah as it is comfy and a little daring. Of course Hannah and Lena are not the same person, but it is pretty safe to say they hold similar views on the reproductive rights of women.

Rachel AntonoffContinuing the tradition of Hannah wearing very cute dresses on occasions such as at Jessa’s wedding, her birthday, dinner with her parents and after she got her first big paycheck with this floral offering. For more Hannah picks check out the gallery at the bottom of the page.

Rachel Antonoff pleatsPleats and tartan for Shoshanna as a reaction to marathoning Outlander and trying to find her very own Jamie. Shoshanna is the one who changes her look the most dressing with a theme or occasion in mind.

Rachel Antonoff cropAnd this is more party wear for Shosh with a matching polka dot crop and skirt number.

Rachel Antonoff RTW 2015Marnie is trying to do the whole boho folk singer thing but we all know she is a preppy girl at heart.

Rachel Antonoff summer dressAnd here is something for Marnie and a return to the beach house for the sophisticated bonding trip she desired. Okay that probably won’t happen but she can still wear this is flirty girly frock.

Rachel Antonoff maxi dressBotany is one of Rachel Antonoff’s points of reference here and Jessa has been known to rock a hippy-esque maxi dress (okay maybe to hide Jemima Kirke’s pregnancy).

Check out the gallery below for more looks for Hannah from Rachel Antonoff’s Fall 2015 collection and stay tuned for more NYFW Fantasy Costuming.
