Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Apr

What is probably going to end up as the musical event of the year took place over the weekend and this week’s Instagram round-up kicks off with this seminal moment. Plus the usual TV season beginnings, endings and everything in-between as there are a whole lot of shows wrapping up and just getting started.

 

This was a huge weekend for HBO, but rather than dragons it is Beyoncé dominating pop culture conversation after she released her visual tour de force album Lemonade. There is the massive cultural impact as well as the more surface level aspects to pore over like every outfit Beyoncé wears throughout.

Plus plenty of celebrity cameos including TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite Amandla Stenberg and she shared this very cool looking shot.

Zendaya also appeared in Lemonade and instead of a moment from the shoot, here she is enjoying the broadcast of this incredible visual and musical feat.

 

Lots of shows wrapping up this week with Scandal being one of them and the sight of Angela Bassett is enough to get me to check back in for the finale (although it looks like she might have been there in a non-acting capacity).

There was a lot of wine on The Good Wife this week even by Alicia’s standards and here is fantastic shot of a laughing Julianna Margulies with a glass of red (or most likely grape juice).

 

Broad City finished its third season last week and here is a very cute photo of Abbi and Ilana from filming the finale.

 

Those red glasses are very special. I checked back in with The Mindy Project a couple of weeks ago and it will be interesting to see how the rest of this season plays out now they have done that big thing.

Shooting of Top of the Lake season 2 is underway and Elisabeth Moss is reveling in the stunning locations.

 

And in her incredible new co-star. Okay this photo is a month old and I don’t know how I missed it first time around, but there is too much amazing in this one picture not to share. I am beyond excited for the return of Top of the Lake as it was a big 2013 highlight.

 

Maisie Williams surprised some UCLA students having a Game of Thrones viewing party by joining them for the season 6 premiere. She even brought snacks, but none of them were dragon egg shape.

The UnREAL cast continue to deliver with set treats including this shot of new guy cast member Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Rady in formal attire.

 

A couple of things – I love that Margaret Qualley hangs out with Liv Tyler (who I also think could easily play her sister) and this is a reminder that The Leftovers will soon start shooting its third (and final *sob*) season.

 

Meanwhile, Justin Theroux continues to work on his fabulous hiatus beard.

 

Now for the most adorable moment on TV this week and Jane the Virgin costume designer Rachel Sage Kunin crushed it with these 1920s silent movies inspired ensembles.

Michelle Williams appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week to discuss her current Broadway stint as well as the Shia LaBeouf incident from when she was in Cabaret. She wore a fantastic Louis Vuitton outfit and I am so pleased stylist Kate Young gives a close up of the stunning skirt detail. Excellent lipstick points as always too (click here to see more).

I definitely want some Betty beer.

 

On Late Night with Seth Meyers Jordan Peele casually dropped it into conversation that he is now married to Chelsea Peretti and Peretti confirmed the happy news on Instagram. So what better way to end this week’s Insta highlights than with this little cute guy in his Hawaiian shirt.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

12 Nov

Master of None was how I spent my weekend and there’s a whole bunch of photos from this show on this week’s TV Instagram round-up including one that hit me right in the feels. Plus plenty of other set shenanigans from shows like ElementaryJane the Virgin and the forthcoming Legends of Tomorrow.

 

Future excellent Good Wife guest star and excellent Lucca Quinn outfit ahoy.

 

The excellent Master of None is definitely a family affair with Aziz Ansari’s parents playing his parents on the show and his brother Aniz collaborated on the writing end. I am now in a post marathoning funk.

My dad took off most of his vacation time for the year to act in Master of None. So I'm really relieved this all worked out. Tonight after we did Colbert together he said: "This is all fun and I liked acting in the show, but I really just did it so I could spend more time with you." I almost instantly collapsed into tears at the thought of how much this person cares about me and took care of me and gave me everything to give me the amazing life I have. I felt like a total piece of garbage for all the times I haven't visited my parents and told them I wanted to stay in New York cause I'd get bored in SC. I'm an incredibly lucky person and many of you are as well. Not to beat a dead horse here and sorry if this is cheesy or too sentimental but if your parents are good to you too, just go do something nice for them. I bet they care and love you more than you realize. I've been overwhelmed by the response to the Parents episode of our show. What's strange is doing that episode and working with my parents has increased the quality of my relationship to my parents IN MY REAL LIFE. In reality, I haven't always had the best, most open relationship with my parents because we are weirdly closed off emotionally sometimes. But we are getting better. And if you have something like that with your family – I urge you to work at it and get better because these are special people in your life and I get terrified when my dad tells me about friends of his, people close to his age, that are having serious health issues, etc. Enjoy and love these people while you can. Anyway, this show and my experiences with my parents while working on it have been very important in many ways and I thank for you the part you all have played in it.

And now things are getting a little misty up in here.

 

I mentioned this a couple of days ago, but I really hope there is more Shannon in season 2 because Danielle Brooks killed it as Dev’s agent.

 

And you should definitely Treat Yo Self.

 

Mostly I just want an excuse to talk about how incredible Regina King is on The Leftovers this week (and every week) and the questionnaire scene with Carrie Coon is jaw-droppingly good. Powerhouse performances from both women and I am still thinking about it.

different faces same disguise #TheAmericans

A post shared by Annet Mahendru (@annetmahendru) on

 

The cast of The Americans has just as much fun with the disguises as I do writing about them.

 

More from The Americans season 4 table reads and is that Dylan Baker I spy sitting there?

 

Scream Queens is pretty patchy; one person who has been consistently brilliant throughout is Glen Powell and he really can work a golf bro ensemble.

 

I want to see which character comes next in this chain. Maybe Andy Sachs.

FIRESTORM rainstorm brainstorm #legends #bts

A post shared by CAITY LOTZ (@caitylotz) on

 

Fake rain or real rain on Legends of Tomorrow? I will be very glad when this show starts because a) more Victor Garber on TV and b) Arrow and The Flash can go back to focusing on their own storylines rather than setting up the spinoff.

 

Elementary made a very welcome return last week and I am as happy as Lucy Liu and Aidan Quinn are delightful in this Jonny Lee Miller snapped shot.

 

I still need to watch last week’s episode and so I’m reading the look on Viola Davis’ face as one that is questioning my viewing choices.

The Wish List: Jane the Virgin’s Sparkly Dress

22 Oct

Jane hasn’t had much opportunity to wear fancy dresses of late on Jane the Virgin and even showering is far down her list of priorities on this new season. Cue ‘Bachelorette Jane’ and a series of appearances to try and help Jane with her Team Michael/Team Raphael decision. This means plenty of wine drinking, rose holding and an endless stream of scenarios in an attempt to get her to pick one guy. This version of Jane wears a series of glitzy dresses all with a common sparkly theme and as the festive season is not all that far away (how is it almost November already?) this is the time to start thinking about holiday party attire.

Bachelorette Jane wears a series of long and short frocks and it is this Adrianna Papell sequin number which could work for a number of events as short is more versatile. Plus it is available in four colors if you fancy it bit more choice) and it’s not crazy expensive either.Jane the Virgin 2.02 Jane the Virgin 2.02 sparklyOne of the things I have discussed in the past regarding the costuming on Jane the Virgin is how the clothes worn by Jane are often from affordable stores rather than just a series of high end items. Of course she also wears some designer garments, but not everything Jane wears will cost you a month’s rent.

Take this striped casual top, which is by Stylus and is available from JC Penney; it is also super cute. Seeing Jane in fancy frocks is fun, but her everyday attire is just as appealing.
