Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 May

Somehow it is May already and this month is a particularly busy one for TV and fashion. The first Monday in May is Met Gala day; it delivered in some respects and featured some of our TV faves. This month is also traditionally the time for season finales and upfronts (even if FX had theirs in April), but as the TV schedule has evolved there is now big new stuff coming every month. Or every week as it feels right now.

This week’s “Out of the Box” is another case of giving great daytime event style with all the pattern and color. The Hulu upfront dominates our sartorial picks and there’s also some Met Gala post-party runoff. Elisabeth Moss has been crushing it with her corridor outfit posing of late on Instagram and this is another case of the amazing eye of super stylist Karla Welch. Here she’s working the Hulu brunch in color block Ted Baker and you know that collar is right up my street.

Also if you haven’t done this already then check out Jada Yuan’s fabulous interview with Moss for NY Mag including some A+ jewelry buying advice from January Jones. The thing with events like this is they often give good wedding guest cocktail dress inspiration (as long as it isn’t too fancy) and this is ideal for this time of year. Case in point is Samira Wiley wearing a floral Carmen Marc Valvo frock and I’m glad she went with a colorful shoe too.Rounding out the Handmaid’s Tale cast is Alexis Bledel in pattern clashing Saloni Resort mixing flowers with polka dots. I love everything about this look right down to her purple strappy sandals and the short tuxedo style jacket.The Hulu bash had full foliage to pose in front of and this works wonders with all the summery fashion on display including Mindy Kaling in this Sachin & Babi gown. Now just get me a cocktail to enjoy.I love the drama of Mary Katrantzou dress and Michelle Monaghan – another Karla Welch client – is serving up plenty of that here. Casual is one of several shows returning this month (May 23) and Tara Lynne Barr’s colorful shorts go a long way in making me ignore how bland those sandals are. Great pedicure though. Kerry Washington was one of our Met Gala highlights (and someone who paid attention to the theme) and here she is the day after at the Bronx Children’s Museum Gala wearing striped Carolina Herrera.

This is giving me circus tent feelings and I mean that in the best possible way. All you need is Keri Russell in her Rag & Bone tails and we’ve got a theme.Speaking of which and as I have a fondness for a getting ready behind the scenes photo diary here is one from Keri Russell’s makeup artist Tina Turnbow for Coveteur

Giving a closeup of Russell’s incredible eyeliner and revealing that Matthew Rhys almost ended up with something similar. Also this is a very adorable shot. Now for a couple of outfit changes for the post-Met parties including Zendaya switching out one D&G incredible print for another. So much ladysuit love with this double-breasted sleeveless take.

And I just realized we’ll be getting a whole lot more Zendaya red carpet action soon with the Spider-Man promo tour.Bookending “Out of the Box” this week with more Karla Welch delights and Ruth Negga changed from ethereal Valentino into edgy leather Valentino. Negga is serving up great posing face whereas Dominic Cooper is giving slightly tipsy vibes. Having seen the amazing Mamma Mia! wrap party pictures this makes sense.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

28 Apr

After last week’s color and pattern extravaganza things are slightly more dialed back in this edition of “Out of the Box,” but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Plus there are still plenty of prints on display across various events this week and the Tribeca Film Festival is delivering on a number of sartorial levels.

Between award season faves and new shows getting the promotion treatment there’s a lot to celebrate this week. We also have 2/4 of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants cast, which seemed like something worth pointing out. Viola Davis shut everything down for the second week in a row and on the back of her incredible Time cover she wore this stunning purple Armani gown to the event celebrating this issue/list. Award season has not been over for long, but it is safe to say we’ve been missing the weekly dose of Ruth Negga in these parts. Luckily for us she took a break from filming the second season of Preacher (which I’m really looking forward to) and stopped by the Tiffany & Co 2017 Blue Collection Gala in New York wearing this fabulous Gucci ensemble.

This is ticking so many boxes including a strong collar and all things leopard print.Now entering the Tribeca Film Festival portion of the week and regular readers will know how much I love it when co-stars come out to support each others projects. The Mr. Robot crew seems pretty tight and Rami Malek was joined by his onscreen sister and sorta-BFF at the premiere of his film Buster’s Mal Heart.

They’re also doing a good job on the outfit coordination without being too matchy matchy with Carly Chaikin looking slightly more casual and I am coveting both her clutch and Portia Doubleday’s bag hard.Rami as ever is bringing it with his suit choice and what looks like a classic black take in the first shot is actually hiding the accents stripe down the sleeve; giving it that Rami edge. It is of course Dior Homme and Ilaria Urbinati is the stylist behind this great athleisure adjacent choice.How to do double polka dot by America Ferrera. While moderating a conversation with Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner as part of Tribeca Talks, America Ferrera delivers a great panel outfit and one with a fun 3D texture element. Great chunky silver platforms too. From fantastic shoes to ones I’m going to ignore as the rest of Rose Byrne’s Rag & Bone look is fabulous mixing feminine florals with leather. At the Flower premiere Zoey Deutch goes full Peter Pan collar in this super cute Chloé dress, which is everything I love about the ’70s influence that is still dominating.

I was just scrolling through the new arrivals at Chloé and I am maybe in love with these floral pants. Perhaps because this print is giving me flashbacks to a duvet cover my parents had. Another fun take on leopard print this week with Ruth Wilson in Alessandra Rich, which the belt helpfully points out and also nearly ruins this frock; can we do away with the very Calvin Klein ’90s actual labeling please. Thanks. Alexis Bledel doesn’t make a tonne of red carpet appearances, but when she does she hits all the right notes including this rainbow beaded halter Cushnie et Ochs frock at the premiere for The Handmaid’s Tale. Love, love, love the injection of even more color with the turquoise clutch and yellow sandals.

Go watch our show. Now. (But first, peep Margaret Atwood's pimp lean to the left 🙌🏾). #handmaidsonhulu

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

3 Feb

The SAG Awards delivered on both speeches and fashion this weekend and on this week’s “Out of the Box” we’ve got a whole lot of great outfits from the Entertainment Weekly pre-SAG party with a dash of the PGA Awards, the beginning of the end for Girls, a new campaign and a very important announcement.yara-shahidi-ewYara Shahidi was our best dressed at the SAG Awards in an incredible striped Naeem Khan frock and at the pre-SAG EW party she went in a very different, but just as fun direction. All baby blues from eye makeup to the abstract print matching Sophie Theallet shirt and pants.kristen-schaalFor all things wacky and delightful look no further than Kristen Schaal and her amazing kitty dress. I love everything about this. Also super cute gold shoes that I would like in my life.malin-akermanMalin Akerman serving up full shoulder drama in metallic striped Zhivago and this is the kind of dress you wear when you want to throw a drink in someone’s face. Or just look cool as fuck.grace-gealey-and-candice-pattonPatterned ladysuit alert with Grace Byers going full plunge in Keti Chkhikvadze and in very cute dress news we have Candice Patton in Tommy Hilfiger. That collar is everything (and now I am looking at dresses on the Tommy Hilfiger website and am very tempted by this).the-crownWhile I very much preferred both Vanessa Kirby and Claire Foy’s SAG ceremony outfits, I also couldn’t pass up this opportunity to post this picture of a much happier (and more alive in some cases) family from The Crown. Lipstick points for Kirby and Foy too.stranger-teensThe Stranger Things cast tends to be split between the kids and the teens when posing for photos; here at the EW party Natalia Dyer instead hangs with her onscreen younger brother and his friends and once again the boys look super swish in their suits. Especially Caleb McLaughlin in bow tie and waistcoat. Dyer’s super floral mini is another very cute Miu Miu and this brand is working like a charm on her.miles-brown-and-caleb-mclaughlinDancing cuties and Stranger Things meets Black-ish. Blue shoes are a must at the pre-SAG party for Caleb McLaughlin and Miles Brown.sag-dancingMore fabulous shoes and moves from the boys at a SAG after party and they’re joined by Janelle Monàe.stranger-dancingAnd now with Samira Wiley and the rest of the Stranger Things kids. Post awards dancing photos are the best.rami-malekThe night before the SAGs Rami Malek went a little more classic in his choice of Dior suit and he also appears to have adopted the signature Eddie Redmayne lean.girls-thrGoing full Friends cast shot as The Hollywood Reporter celebrates Girls with an oral history and a cover featuring the core cast. This is a really well styled shoot and I now have Lost in Translation like questions as I wonder what Adam Driver is whispering into Andrew Rannells’ ear. kenzoKenzo’s new Spring 2017 campaign features Tracee Ellis Ross, Jesse Williams and cellist/singer Kelsey Lu. A short film called “Music is My Mistress” will be released next Thursday (February 9) and if these print ads are any indication it is going to be pretty special.yara-shahidi-ivy-parkAnd in other fantastic campaign news; here is Yara Shahidi for Ivy Park and this oversized sweater/short shorts look is great. Shahidi appeared in Lemonade and re-teaming with Beyoncé for her clothing brand makes so much sense.

 

Also thank you Beyoncé for giving us something to be happy about this week. And I love that her underwear is not matching. Also where can I get that bra?

Best of the 2017 Winter TCA Panel and Party Style (So Far)

12 Jan

Award season and the Golden Globes are not the only place for super stylish outfits this month/week as the 2017 winter TCA press tour is fully underway. The really great thing about this occurring during award season is getting to see outfits that are more like the things I would actually wear. Don’t get me wrong; I love the grand and opulent gowns that we get to see on the red carpet at this time of year, but it is also fun to mix things up. See also why I cannot wait for all the knitwear and coats from Sundance.

There are patterns aplenty and this is one trend that was lacking at the Golden Globes, but because of the whole panel element there isn’t always standing shots so some outfits don’t get their full moment to shine.kerry-washington-and-bellamy-youngThe whole TGIT block got pushed back a week, but we have some sartorial delights from the cast of Scandal with Kerry Washington looking stunning in a floral Prabal Gurung frock and super cute purple ribbon Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Bellamy Young is also crushing it in patterns with leopard print really making a comeback (see also Keri Russell at the Globes) and pairing this bold skirt with a red short sleeve sweater adds a fiery elegance to the whole look.cush-jumboAfter The Good Wife ended in disappointment I was pretty sure I didn’t need any more from this world, but it turns out it was maybe just Alicia Florrick’s story that I was done with as with every promo and interview about this spinoff my excitement levels grow.

Plus more Diane (and a Diane who is allowed to swear) is everything I need right now. Same goes for Cush Jumbo and it will be good to see the super stylish Lucca Quinn step out from her ‘get-a-grip’ friend role.

Also this Carolina Herrera pink dress is super cute and Jumbo looks amazing both on the show in costume Daniel Lawson’s choices and IRL.the-good-fightAnd the full Good Fight cast with the creators. I am so ready. condola-rashadSometimes an abstract print is what you need as Condola Rashad from Billions is demonstrating; it is like palm trees meets Pollack. michelle-monaghanAt The Path session Michelle Monaghan is several levels of mesmerizing in this Mary Katrantzou frock delivering on both pattern and sparkle.

madchen-amickDramatic shoulders at the Twin Peaks revival panel and Mädchen Amick delivers in La Petite Robe by Chiara Boni with bonus red lip. Confession time – I have still not watched Twin Peaks even though I got the DVD two Christmases ago and I am hanging my head in so much shame. This will be rectified by Sunday, May 21 when it returns to TV. izombieApril is going to be a great TV month with the last season of The Leftovers and the return of iZombie on April 4. And this is one good looking and super stylish cast with A+ suit choices and a fabulous Yigal Azrouel frock for Rose McIver. I would also love to know what point she is making here.samira-wiley-and-elisabeth-mossAnother confession – I have not read The Handmaid’s Tale, but I did buy it this week and it is next on my To Read pile after I am done with the short story detective anthology I’m reading right now. It is a book I am of course aware of and that it is very timely despite coming out over thirty years ago.

The cast is also incredible and this shot of Samira Wiley and Elisabeth Moss is delightful.elisabeth-mossSwitching from pants to a dress and on the same Hulu day Elisabeth Moss gives me collar and color envy in this fabulous Ulyana Sergeenko frock. alexis-bledelIt was also announced on Saturday that Alexis Bledel is in The Handmaid’s Tale and hopefully she will be better received in this than Rory Gilmore’s writing career in the Gilmore Girl’s revival.

Great dress and I’m so happy Bledel’s shoe/manicure choice is summer when her dress is winter. Got to mix those seasons.yvonne-strahovskiSometimes a black jumpsuit does the trick as Yvonne Strahovski demonstrates.tara-lynne-barrTara Lynne Barr is here to remind me that I still need to finish watching the last season of Casual and also that red boots are fabulous. Another good example of an outfit I would actually wear.ari-graynorAs with Yvonne Strahovski’s black jumpsuit, Ari Graynor goes classic in a black sweater and pencil skirt (further research on Twitter revealed this wasn’t a sweater dress like I hoped it might be) as she talks “I’m Dying Up Here.”conor-leslieConor Leslie of new Fox show Shots Fired delivers on winter botanicals and this dress skirts the right side of sheer (yeah there is one), but really it is her lipstick that is giving me so much life right now. leighton-meester-tcaMuch to my joy Leighton Meester is returning to TV in March for Fox’s time travel comedy Making History and in jumpsuit news I am enjoying the turtleneck twist combined with the gold studs; this feels very business but you can also go to the club after.

Instagram delivers on the TV style front, film festival glamour and on set singing this week. Plus find out some intimate You’re the Worst information and the usual amount of sweater and lipstick coveting.

 

The Leftovers is still shooting its final season out in Australia and I am glad to see Justin Theroux will be sporting his beard throughout. Liv Tyler captures him here working the leopard print in the hair and makeup trailer.

It has been a bit of a Leftovers watching week as I got the second season for my birthday and I wrote about Kevin’s karaoke here.

You’re the Worst returned last week with a fabulous episode and the cast took over the Backstage Instagram. There’s plenty of behind the scenes videos including Chris Geere showing off a modesty pouch/cock sock. He definitely had to wear one in the season premiere.

 

Standard lipstick and sunglasses envy.

 

Chris Geere was also understandably excited to make his talk show debut on The Late Show.

 

One of my favorite costume designers with one of my favorite actresses. Looking forward to seeing what this pairing brings.

 

Now for one of my makeup artist faves with another Orange is the New Black stars and this series of photos of Natasha Lyonne are fantastic.

Greg Williams delivers once again on intimate photographs from the Venice Film Festival and here are a few of my favorites. Starting with Jake getting ready, just because.

 

Getting up close with super couple Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. Luckily this dress doesn’t require some awkward lying down.

Fun getting ready pictures of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ trip to the White House last night from hair stylist Brian Magallones. Cue every Russian spy joke ever and it would appear that the Obamas are fans of The Americans as they scored a prime spot at the state dinner table. Excellent dress choice by Keri Russell and a nice prelude to the Emmys next month.

I did a thing….. 💆🏼

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

Sometimes a hiatus beard happens (see Matthew Rhys) and other times in between seasons a different dye job is the thing (or this could be work related). Regardless, from this obscured shot the blonde looks great on Sophie Turner.

There have been a lot of missteps on UnREAL this season including keeping Rachel and Quinn apart and at loggerheads.

Also this is a really nice photo of Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby.

6 Jul

The holiday weekend means plenty of patriotic style and a whole lot of sunshine. Plus the Orange is the New Black cast head to Canada, some exits and anticipated returning shows from the Instagram TV highlights.

 

Jessica Williams has left The Daily Show and I am so excited for what she will do next. Williams’ podcast 2 Dope Queens with Phoebe Robinson got me through an emotionally tough train ride home at the end of last week; making me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry so I am extra grateful for that. Plus this photo from the Jon Stewart era is amazing.

 

Makeup artist Tina Turnbow captured Keri Russell getting ready for her Today Show appearance where she wore a very cool floral pussy bow blouse and talked her new movie, The Americans and Spy Baby.

More from the UnREAL cast and I love how much Constance Zimmer loves this bag of popcorn.

 

If you miss The Office well then Angela Kinsey has a treat for you as she has posted a bunch of old photos from the set including that time in season 1 when Amy Adams guest starred.

 

Very cute iZombie co-star hangouts with some bonus dog pals.

Between Orange is the New Black and “The Battle of the Bastards” there was a lot going on this week on TV and this edition of “Behind the Insta-Scenes” has got you covered on both. Plus we’ve got shows that are currently in productions, ones that have just finished and lots of other fun stuff is on the Instagram highlights menu.

 

It’s all fun and games in Maureen when things aren’t getting set on fire/people aren’t being stabbed.

 

A “How to Get Blood out of Your Beard” tutorial is probably needed for the Game of Thrones guys and it is good to see all is crazy in love when the camera stops rolling.

 

And now for a “Who Wore it Better?” Battle of the Bastards edition (Part 2).

After recently marathoning my way through the first two seasons of iZombie I’ve still got that post-watch emptiness (see also OITNB) so even though there isn’t a season 3 premiere date yet, it is good to see some of the cast back on iZombie duty.

While a lot of the FNL cast were in Austin for the ATX Television Festival; Aimee Teegarden, Taylor Kitsch, Zach Gilford and Minka Kelly were taking part in the Spartan Race. Another reunion I can get behind. Even with Kitsch’s mustache.

This is from a couple of weeks ago (when I covered the outfits from this event), but somehow I missed it and I’m making up for that now.

 

Joshua Jackson and Kiernan Shipka doing their best January Jones pose might be my new favorite thing.

 

The way to get two entries is to quote from Overboard. Always an instant YES in my book/blog.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

17 Jun

The Tony Awards red carpet was awash with color and pattern so it was interesting to see that the rest of this week was so dominated by neutrals and metallics with a dash of florals.

We’ve got the New York Orange is the New Black premiere and a couple of other events featuring some TV Ate My Wardrobe faves.Samira WileyHappy OITNB Day!

Samira Wiley in a classic plunging black jumpsuit – cue reminder that I still need to embrace this trend – and bold berry lip color. OITNBI love seeing group shots of this cast because what other show has this much diversity and array of body shapes, looks and style choices with this many women? I think the answer is probably none. And this is just a small portion of the sizable OITNB cast.

Outfit standouts here include Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba with Taylor Schilling and Natasha Lyonne – does this mean Nicky is back? – getting the lipstick points. Vicky JeudyGoing for a look that would fit right in at Studio 54 and Vicky Jeudy crushes it in gold metallic Halston. Taraji P HensonKeeping on the metal theme with Taraji P. Henson in Marc Jacobs serving up a whole lot of steel with a dash of floral embellishment at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards; Henson was honored with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television for her performance as Cookie Lyon on EmpireClaire DanesKeeping on this muted shimmery trend at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards is Claire Danes in Dolce & Gabbana with her second red carpet appearance on TV Ate My Wardrobe this week. Pink lipstick yes! Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington is a patterned dress wearing queen and after last week’s dreamy D&G number here is another delight; this time it is Giambattista Valli and I am particularly here for those floaty sleeves. More pink lipstick to add some color into this week’s muted tones theme. Rose McIverEnding this week’s “Out of the Box” with a boost of color and pants with Rose McIver at the 2016 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future event celebrating Natalie Dormer (who was honored at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards – also sponsored by Max Mara).

McIver’s look is giving me so many late 90s flashbacks, but not of the choker *shudder* kind and this looks like something I would have worn back then and even now. Also giving me Keri Russell in Felicity vibes. Love the fresh faced/hair back approach here and I cannot wait for iZombie to return after my recent binge.
