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.

Best of the 2015 Met Gala – Part 2

5 May

This year the Met Gala is celebrating the Costume Institute’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition which opens this week. It is a theme that could be either misinterpreted or rather take a big chunk of cultural appropriation and while some went very close to the line as is often the case with the Met Gala the theme was only hinted at – remember how very un-punk a lot of attendees were last year?

Here is Part 2 of our ‘Best of’ rundown (head here for Part 1) and while a lot of these dresses could work on any fancy pants red carpet event there are still a couple of ensembles which embrace the Met Gala costume dream.

RihannaKicking off the second part with the most dramatic entrance of the night and Rihanna achieves regal cape gown perfection in yellow Guo Pei – moving beyond the ‘inspired by Chinese heritage by wearing something by a Chinese designer – and the wide staircase shot shows off this incredible moment.

Allison WilliamsWhen I first saw Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture I was struck by how it was so Allison Williams and yet at the same time it moves away from her wheelhouse. This might be her best red carpet look to date and in a sea of scarlet frocks it is one which really stands out.

Rose ByrneRose Byrne wears one of the most interesting looks of the night in leather custom Calvin Klein collection. While once again I can’t see a whole lot of the theme in this; the circular cut outs and overall detail is spectacular.

Amal ClooneyAnother gown which explores the theme through texture with a military inspiration in the design of Amal Clooney’s Maison Margiela bodice. Mixing this with a layered skirt and one which evokes flowers adds to the outstanding quality of this dress.

Anne HathawayThere were a whole lot of Star Wars references being thrown about when Anne Hathaway arrived, but for me this looks a whole lot like something I wore in 1998 (albeit mine was a silver sleeveless hoodie which I adored). Whatever this Ralph Lauren hooded dress makes you think of, it is clear that Anne Hathaway is working it.

Kate HudsonMore gold and Kate Hudson in Michael Kors is doing her ‘Kate Hudson looks very good on the red carpet’ thing.

Jessica ChastainWoah! Jessica Chastain goes for gold bombshell in Givenchy with super retro curls and bonus red lipstick points. This looks like something Amy Adams might have worn during the American Hustle awards period, which is to say it is smoking hot.

Brie LarsonSo much sparkly beaded detail on Brie Larson’s Dolce & Gabana frock which is one of the more on theme looks of the night. Also very much feeling her gold headband and red lip color.

Taraji P HensonI finally stared Empire (so late to this party I know) and Taraji P. Henson is already giving me so much life as Cookie. Here is Henson in beaded Balenciaga adding to the many floral gowns on offer and she looks pretty damn great.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonDiane Kruger once again shows why she is a magical fashion unicorn as her Chanel Couture ensemble really shouldn’t work and yet she still looks incredible. Joshua Jackson looks rather spiffy and hey here’s the best dressed couple crown.

Maggie GyllenhaalAnother monochrome beauty and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Roland Mouret also has a dash of color to add to the unusual bodice and belting. It’s a dress I could see Nessa Stein from The Honourable Woman wearing.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Apr

The sun is shining and the influx of summer looking prints and hemline lengths at the MTV Movie Awards has me both fearing and embracing the ditching of tights. Plus the best sartorial moments of the week from other premieres and events.

Amy SchumerIt has been a big week for Amy Schumer with hosting the MTV Movie Awards, receiving a Peabody and being part of Time’s 100 Most Influential People (Tilda Swinton wrote this spectacular ode to her). Inside Amy Schumer returns next week and we have already been gifted with this. To top it off she looks really great in this monochrome Balmain mini frock, which is giving me all the Megan Draper feels.

Holland RodenShort hemlines were on trend as Holland Roden demonstrates in another take on black and white in this super funky Caterina Gatta dress. And this ensemble also wouldn’t look out of place on Mad Men this season. Cute blue pumps too (although it is a shame they blend into the carpet).

Anna CampAnother very fun dress and Anna Camp’s Peter Pilotto is a textured/pattern joy. Not entirely sure about chunky straps on the Stuart Weitzman sandals, but this is the kind of outfit that would also work at Coachella (without looking too Coachella).

Michael B JordanNow for a pair of dapper FNL boys and one thing I am really excited about when it comes to the new Fantastic Four is Michael B. Jordan on the red carpet and he is already killing it in plaid Vivienne Westwood.

Zach GilfordAll the Matt Saracen swoons are occurring right now and Zach Gilford’s got the whole cute smile thing down. Now to find him a decent TV project.

Ellie KemperMoving on to the Lilly Pulitzer for Target event with Ellie Kemper rocking a bob with bangs and an ideal dress for the warmer weather. This looks like an ideal Jane the Virgin outfit and I can see this collection popping up on this show (it is Jane’s favorite store after all).

Rose ByrneRose Byrne opts for a slightly longer cut at the Adult Beginners premiere in velvet (!) Christopher Kane and the 70s influence here is strong (and I love).

Elizabeth OlsenGoing for chic simplicity at the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere and slaying it in Galvan is Elizabeth Olsen (I have to concentrate extra hard so I don’t end up typing a mashup of Peggy Olson/Elisabeth Moss). The white tee element is accentuated by the gold necklace and combined with midnight blue makes this a winning look.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

20 Mar

A mostly SXSW “Out of the Box” with a dash of PaleyFest, talk show appearance sartorial highs and the Game of Thrones London premiere.

Aubrey PlazaAs with PaleyFest, Comic-Con or the TCA press tour the style on show at SXSW is a whole range of things and it tends to lean towards the casual cool end of the scale because it is Austin after all. Aubrey Plaza ditches her usual print signature and goes for a simple and funky salmon skirt with a white top at the Fresno premiere.

Amy Schumer and Vanessa BayerAmy Schumer debuted Trainwreck at SXSW and I cannot wait to see this movie and for Inside Amy Schumer to be back on TV. My personal jumpsuit progression has not changed, but when it does I think I will be start with the all black styling Schumer is perfecting. Vanessa Bayer’s bold floral/rope print skirt with the stripe sweater is ideal levels of pattern clashing.

Melissa McCarthyMelissa McCarthy’s teamed up with Paul Feig again for Spy (the reviews have been very good) and the layering/accessorizing of this outfit is fantastic.

Rose Byrne 90s WinonaA Rose Byrne double and first up on the Spy red carpet in Thakoon and a very 90s Winona Ryder looking getup down to the lip color.

Rose ByrneAnd at a SXSW cocktail party for Adult Beginners, Byrne has me swooning over this burnt orange blazer.

Jane the Virgin castThe cast of Jane the Virgin show off colorful style (ignoring the jeans/electric blazer ensemble) with on screen mother/daughter pair Ivonne Coll and Andrea Nevado lighting up this ensemble shot in bold pink and yellow. For a PaleyFest Jane the Virgin behind the scenes treat head here.

Keri Russell Seth Meyers

Keri Russell shows her support for Seth Meyers on her shirt as she heads to his show and woah is this a knockout look in skintight leather pants, a tuxedo jacket and a fantastic bold pink lip color – ‘Fever’ by Hourglass (thanks Tina Turnbrow for the color confirmation).

Lena DunhamDebuting an all new pixie cut also on Late Night with Seth Meyers this week is Lena Dunham and I’ve got all the short hair feels right now. So much better than her Scandal wig.

IMG_9721Rounding off the week with dude in a suit the ‘Kit Harington smolders in Burberry’ edition at the Game of Thrones premiere in London.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Dec

Red carpet dress pretty and a new promo poster for one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s most anticipated new shows for 2015 are all part of this week’s “Out of the Box.”

Agent CarterMarvel unveiled the new Agent Carter poster this week and it is a doozy. There are several reasons why I am looking forward to this show and most of these begin with Hayley Atwell accompanied by a dash of “I can’t wait to see the costuming.” Atwell does have the whole 1940s look down (as can be seen in Any Human Heart, Restless and Captain America of course), but her talents go far beyond retro styling and hopefully Agent Carter is going to showcase her many strengths as a performer.

Kiernan ShipkaKiernan Shipka continues her red carpet reign in Mary Katrantzou at the TrevourLIVE LA event. It is a fun, colourful dress and the textured patterned fabric puts a playful twist on this traditional silhouette.

Rose ByrneAnother frock from the Spring 2015 Mary Katrantzou collection – this designer is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite – and Rose Byrne shines in this dress (and her bob is spectacular) at the Annie premiere; it is why there is no need for accessories and black pumps/tights are the perfect choice to complete this look.

Laverne CoxWhat I’ve learned from Laverne Cox’s “Home for the Holidays” Benefit Concert outfit is my cape love trumps my lack of enthusiasm for sheer and this is a very fun Marc Bouwer dress, which is perfect for this time of year.

Zoe KazanZoe Kazan’s super colorful Novis dress at the Into the Woods premiere doesn’t scream December, but it continues the strong pattern trend this week and makes me feel like I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole. I’m even partial to the chunky buckles on Kazan’s sparkly color block shoes.

Portia de RossiIt is hard to pull off plaid on plaid on plaid and Portia de Rossi is serving up Glen Plaid realness in this Stella McCartney ensemble. The rolled up sleeves, top button done up, black lapels, black accessories and splash of lip color makes it the ideal outfit for a breakfast event as The Hollywood Reporter celebrates Women in Entertainment including Shonda Rhimes.

Emma RobertsThis is a whole lot of pink, but Emma Roberts manages to avoid looking sickly sweet in this Valentino frock. The flared cuffs and floral collar give it a 60s feel and the only thing not working for me is the blah taupe pumps.

Elephant Man Broadway Opening Night Arrivals: Couples and Coats

8 Dec

Starting the week off with a coat heavy post because it is cold and I need some outerwear pretty for this brr Monday morning. I would normally save these looks for “Out of the Box” but there is too much couple cuteness to wait until Friday. Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson are starring in the Broadway production of The Elephant Man at the Booth Theater and here are some of the stylish folks who attended the opening night show on Sunday.

Emily Blunt and John KransinskiEmily Blunt’s Dolce & Gabbana coat is a beauty as is her Marios Schwab frock and husband John Krasinski is doing the whole coat/knitwear/shirt combo I adore so much.

Jon HammOpting for a slightly smarter suit/coat pairing is John Hamm with Jennifer Westfeldt continuing the coat/tights trend. The brief color injection thanks to the slight flash of yellow on Westfeldt’s heels and it is what this all black ensemble needs.

Bobby Cannavale and Rose ByrneAnother couple, another good collection of outerwear and while Rose Byrne could be wearing the brightest frock underneath her coat from here she is also sticking to a dark attire look. Yes this is very much tights season. Bobby Cannavale’s not gone full suit with tie and I can’t help but feel he could do with a scarf or something.

Ruth Wilson Elephant ManBlazer and pants for The Affair’s Ruth Wilson – she is also about to star on Broadway with Jake Gyllenhaal in Constellations – breaking the lady trend of the evening and I love this relaxed yet super stylish approach. Plus those two-tone purple and pink heels are crying out my name; coveting hard even if shoes like this destroy my feet.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

13 Jun

There has been a whole host of events this week as the summer months are filled by conversations about the season of TV we have just experienced, along with various charity and fashion soirees taking place. This week’s “Out of the Box” is showcasing the best of these including the Fox “Girls Night Out” panel, the Women in Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards and the amfAR Inspiration Gala.

Mindy KalingMindy Kaling’s looking a little trippy in Marc by Marc Jacobs at Fox’s “Girls Night Out.” I could see Megan Draper wearing this especially as it’s long sleeved and showing a whole lot of leg; the pattern is rather hypnotic and is on point with the late 60s psychedelic style.

chelsea perettiChelsea Peretti is a TV Ate My Wardrobe sweater queen on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and at the Fox “Girls Night Out” she is pulling off two trends we’re not always on board with; tulip dresses and open toe booties.

Laverne Cox amfarThe Orange is the New Black season 2 watch is preceding nicely (about to watch episode 8) and one thing it needs more of is Sophia. Lucky for us Laverne Cox has been hitting up various events (and the cover of Time) such as the amfAR Inspiration Gala in this stunning midnight blue gown.

Kerry WashingtonPicking up an accolade for excellence in television at the Women in Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards is a good reason to return to the red carpet and Kerry Washington does just this in a very cool paint splatter effect Sportmax skirt and black top. Orange is what ties the look together without going too matchy matchy with lip color and AMAZING Louboutin ‘Geo’ studded toecap pumps.

Rose ByrneThe ‘Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future’ is an honor that has been bestowed on Rose Byrne and Max Mara threw a cocktail party with W Magazine to celebrate. Byrne is of course in Max Mara and the sequins combined with a plunging neckline help her stand out. I love the choice of silver capped pumps and her minimal makeup (even though I’d love to see either a deep red or bright pink lip color, but that might just be me).

Kiernan ShipkaAlso attending this Max Mara event is Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka and she continues to kill it on the red carpet. Wearing Max Mara Shipka goes for something edgier with a leather skirt on the bottom and contrasts this with a white silk top. The yellow Christian Louboutin bag adds a pop of color and she once again nails the age appropriateness of her sartorial choices. Jon Hamm recently spoke about Shipka during this LA Times roundtable discussion just how lucky they were to get someone as talented as Shipka from such a young age.

gillian jacobsDoing the super summer frock thing at the Monte Carlo Television Festival is Gillian Jacobs and she is doing it well in this red strapless number. This is a super cute look and I can’t wait to see Jacobs on the next season of Girls and everything else possible.

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

14 Feb

As promised it’s a New York Fashion Week special with a look at some of the famous faces who attended the runway shows this week and for all our other NYFW coverage head here.

Solange at MillyWe tend to only focus on faces from TV with this feature, however it would be remiss of me if I didn’t include Solange at the Milly by Michelle Smith runway show as this is hands down my favorite outfit from the front row this week. Combining bubblegum pink with two such bold colors could have been a step too far and yet Solange pulls it off and looks incredible. This coat is my everything and will help combat the current chilly New York climate.

Tina Fey spotted smiling while leaving the Lincoln Center during NYFW in New York CitySpeaking of weather preparedness here is Tina Fey leaving the Carolina Herrera show on Monday switching out strappy heels for Hunter wellies and they still look pretty fantastic with this outfit. I’m on the fence with the Tootsie like glasses, but everything else is fantastic.

Diane Kruger Hugo BossOut of the Box regular Diane Kruger’s outfit manages to be weather appropriate and super stylish as she heads to the Hugo Boss show. There’s no cute, but freezing strappy shoe BS here and it’s no surprise that I am very much in love with the sweater she is wearing.

Zosia Mamet Rebecca MinkoffThe coat over the shoulders thing is very fashion week and Girls’ Zosia Mamet also demonstrates this at Rebecca Minkoff in stunning orange. Coats and sweaters are my jam.

Taylor Schilling and Caitlin FitzgeraldLooking very different from their Masters of Sex and Orange is the New Black characters is Caitlin Fitzgerald and Taylor Schilling hangout together at the Thakoon show. I’m normally not all that into jumpsuits, but pairing it with these booties has got me on board the whole jumpsuit of it all and Fitzgerald is giving off an effortlessly chic vibe. I’m pro tights and I love the color combination of Schilling’s bold print dress with the rainbow infused sparkly coat. So much shimmer.

Rose ByrnePolka dots! Rose Byrne wearing a dress at Michael Kors that I would very much like in my closet and it’s a classic look. I’m going to ignore the clumpy heels as this is a perfect outfit without them.

AnnaSophia RobbMore polka dots! And this time it’s shoes with AnnaSophia Robb wearing the cutest heels with a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress at the DVF show (of course). Robb is always a delight at both NYFW and on the red carpet; while we don’t know if she will return as 1980s Carrie Bradshaw, in the present day she is just as fashion forward.
