Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jun

A day earlier than the usual Behind the Insta-Scenes posting time and that’s because it has been jam packed with the ATX Television Festival in Austin delivering on the TV reunion front. Plus the Tony Awards and other great TV related hangouts.

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts… @atxfestival

The ATX Television Festival provided a whole lot of feelings all over Instagram (I would be a mess if I was there IRL) and the Friday Night Lights reunion was the number one source.

reunited and it feels pretty good #husbands

Also from Austin we’ve got Mae Whitman bringing together two parts of the Jason Katims TV map. I really like her glasses.

 

In more excellent TV reunion photos with the ladies from Ugly Betty and one boozy hangout dream scenario; Vanessa Williams AND Judith Light.

 

Posing up a storm and the UnREAL cast continues to crush all things on Instagram (also this week’s episode is SO great).

 

Danai Gurira was one of our Tony Awards red carpet faves and not only is she delivering on the excellent Insta multi group shots, but she’s also given us a getting ready photo diary over at Vogue.

We're in the room where it happens! #hamiltonys ALSO, how beautiful and talented is my best friend?????

In non-shocking news to regular readers, but I adore this selfie. And everything about this friendship. Michelle Williams’ lipstick looks even better in close up.

One last one from last night.

This is also really wonderful and showcases the hell out of Busy Philipps’ amazing frock.

More in the Tony selfie stream and Lucy Liu was one of the yellow frock delights from the night.

Dat was NICE NIIICE! #TonyAwards @HugoBoss @JasonWu @TiffanyandCo. #BOSS

Lupita gifts us with a Tonys dress and accessories still life; such exquisite and detailed work.

 

Glenn Close looks amazing and in a ‘stars they’re just like us’ moment she’s seen her clutching heels rather than wearing them after a big event (I normally last 2 hours, maybe 3 if/when the booze kicks in).

Busy Philipps has the Jane Eyre Olympia Le-Tan book cover clutch and this Bell Jar one (as mentioned in this Tonys post) is my ultimate clutch wish list item.

Guess who is doing whose red carpet pose @desminborges @cwgeere @maybeayacash @ketherdonohue

You’re the Worst is now shooting season 3 and I cannot wait for more. Love the slippers, Kether.

 

BrainDead started last night and I liked the pilot a bunch; the leads are great and former Good Wife costume designer Daniel Lawson is giving me a whole new blazer wardrobe to covet.

 

Behind the scenes of this fantastic New York Magazine Tracee Ellis Ross photo shoot gives the bonus of seeing Ross dancing to Beyoncé.

Variety Actors on Actors or Pick Your Dream Dinner Date (Part 2)

9 Jun

The Hollywood Reporter has their award season roundtables gathering a group of actors/writers/showrunners who are at the top of their game and over at Variety they do things one-on-one getting the actors to interview other actors. Last year I referred to this setup as picking your dream dinner dates and that still stands with the line-up this year.

So far only a handful of the full videos are available on YouTube (you can find them all on Variety) and they are ideal viewing if you are suffering from show withdrawal or if like me you just love this time of year when TV awards chat is in full focus. Courtney B. Vance and Tracee Ellis RossFirst up we have Courtney B. Vance and Tracee Ellis Ross in this almost 40-minute extravaganza discussing everything from college, to the OJ Simpson trial and discussions of race on Black-ish.

And in people I didn’t know went to high school together; Rami Malek and Kirsten Dunst. Also love that Kirsten Dunst would listen to Dolly Parton’s “Here I Am” before scenes in which Peggy was particularly feeling herself.

Talking about producing material and creating their own work with Master of None and Confirmation. Plus audition chat and now I’m left wondering which two shows Kerry Washington got fired off for the horrific reason of not sounding ‘urban’ enough. Is one of them Wonderfalls? On a fashion note I have already mentioned how much I love Kerry Washington’s dress and I will be doing so again.

Jay Duplass tells a very funny story about having more sexual partners on screen in one season of Transparent than he has in his whole life and Emilia Clarke reveals why she ended up dancing in her Game of Thrones audition (always blame Diet Coke).

And finally from two Ryan Murphy projects we have Jamie Lee Curtis and Lady Gaga with Lady Gaga explaining how she got on board the American Horror Story train (she called him) and where Gaga ends and Stephanie begins. Turns out that Robert Durst is the surprising influence for Gaga’s performance on AHS.

It is not just one on one interviews Variety are gifting us this award season and you can watch a supporting actor roundtable featuring Regina King, Jonathan Banks, Miranda Otto, Anthony Mackie, Christian Slater and Maggie Siff here.

Updated to add this super delightful chat between Sam Heughan and Krysten Ritter. Heughan talks about the Outlander costumes and how helpful they are, which leads to Krysten Ritter breaking down Jessica’s unchanging wardrobe. They win my heart in an instant.

Check back for more Emmy chat here soon.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 May

The busiest red carpet week since award season was over with the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday and the Met Gala extravaganza on Monday. There are still plenty of other events delivering on the sartorial front with the Tony Awards ‘Meet the Nominees’ press junket, a Netflix Jessica Jones screening and other outings. Plus a fun game of ‘What scenario does Sam Heughan’s Interview editorial make you think of?’Michelle WilliamsMichelle Williams looks cute and chic in a Louis Vuitton (of course) black number at the Tony nominee press shindig; in not shocking news I am obsessing over her embellished collar. Michelle wasn’t included in my Met roundup (I liked the look, but not for the Gala) which was a super hard choice because I really loved the super chunky boots all the LV ladies wore; I would maybe switch out her black pumps here for those boots. Lupita Nyong'oWhile I’m on the subject of shoes; Lupita Nyong’o in flats makes me so happy (because I do adore a flat) and she looks incredibly fresh in a peach lace crop top and skirt. Plus on Instagram, Lupita gives a close up shot of the Tony nominee pin that is the accessory of this celebration.Danielle BrooksA pure moment of joy from Danielle Brooks and I am excited that Taystee will be back in my life next month (June 17). Plus stripes and leather pleats are very much in my fashion wheelhouse so excellent daytime event outfit choice. Krysten RitterKrysten Ritter goes all in on the crimson theme in Altuzarra and bold lip color. Gold spiky Louboutins and a Jimmy Choo clutch finish off a fabulous look courtesy of TV Ate My Wardrobe stylist fave Ilaria Urbinati. Racheal TaylorAlso at the Jessica Jones FYC screening is the other half of one of the best lady friendships on TV right now and Rachael Taylor’s Dion Lee dress looks perfect for swishing in. And for the whole cast hanging out check out this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.”Rachel McAdamsApparently all I need to like sheer is equal amounts of wine color velvet to break it up and a fantastic velvet collar to boot. Rachel McAdams looks great at the Sonic Sea screening and this is such a good hair length on her.

Trench coats and particularly Burberry trenches are my weakness and Claire Danes in a patterned number from Burberry is ticking SO many boxes.

Sam HeughanInterview is on a roll with the TV dudes at the moment and this Sam Heughan photo shoot led to a very fun conversation on Twitter regarding what kind of character you get from the Henley/neckerchief wearing attire above. The interview is also fun and Heughan gives off so many delightful vibes.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

13 Apr

Game of Thrones is back in just under two weeks and we’ve got plenty of photos from the season 6 premiere. Plus cast hangouts on and off the set, the end of The Good Wife, White House trips and Megan Fox crushing it.

I would like to live in this world forever. Still no word on the future of Agent Carter, instead let’s just relax in the wonder that is this pairing.

And now for the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere photo onslaught including Maisie Williams’ on point nail art.

Hanging with her on screen sister in a very intimate fashion. My GoT dream is still to see this pair reunite, find Nymeria and then burn the place/the Boltons/the Freys to the ground; the new trailer promises shows both Stark women preparing to do battle of sorts and I am very excited.

Thankfully this relationship is far happier IRL.

 

Lena Headey gives great pre-premiere face.

 

While Emilia Clark strikes a pose.

 

Outlander returned this week and Jamie Fraser himself; Sam Heughan was the Grand Marshal at the New York City Tartan Day Parade. As a Fraser this makes me very happy indeed.

Things happened on The Americans last week; one of those things was sadly not Nina infiltrating Elizabeth and Philip’s place of work.  Also woah look at how young Henry looks in that picture.

what a great blur #TheAmericans

Double Annet Mahendru and a blurry finger pistol shot with Michael Aronov. Note the Ugg boots which is always one of my favorite below the camera details that you get to see in BTS photos.

 

You’re the Worst IRL hangouts fill my heart with so much joy.

So proud of my best friend. Again. And always.

This shot of Yara Shahidi at the White House is magnificent; the pose/dress/everything.

 

Oh hey Sweet Lady Jane, there is someone I would like you to meet and she goes by the name of Val.

 

Because it is midweek and Jacob Tremblay’s new puppy Rey is what we all need.

This made laugh a lot and now is also a good time to mention how much I enjoyed Megan Fox on New Girl this season.
