Out of the Box: Look of the Week

20 Apr

After last week’s pink suit extravaganza, Look of the Week and spring fashion is a bit more eclectic. Lots of bold patterns, some fabulous ladysuits and sequin delights. Behold! Regular (or even not so regular) readers will not be surprised to see me kick off this week with Busy and Michelle. At the I Feel Pretty premiere, Busy looks incredible in sparkly Christian Siriano. Siriano, as Busy shared on her Stories also provided the dress for her sister.

Meanwhile, I wish Michelle’s Louis Vuitton was a jumpsuit rather than a witchy dress. The collar is reminiscent of this LV dress she wore at the SAG awards last year, but I like this detail more on this occasion even if the sequin SAG frock is better.

Also while I’m on the subject of I Feel Pretty, this by Alison Herman is an interesting look at Amy Schumer’s career trajectory.
I am never not going to love a sequin mini dress, especially when Natalie Morales is the one in it. I just finished season two of Santa Clarita Diet, this show and Morales are so much fun. I liked season one, but it has really found its weirdo voice. I hope there is more to come.Evan Rachel Wood is Queen of the Ladysuits; she does not disappoint in this very beige, very ’70s looking Altuzzara ensemble. Also opting for a vibe from my fave style decade is Thandie Newton in patterned and peplum Osman.

Really looking forward to see these ladies tear show shit up on season two of Westworld.Hello, handsome. James Marsden is coordinating with the carpet and showing how to pattern clash in style.Carrying on the crush theme with Jimmi Simspon; I adore him and those clear frames. This is also a fun and different suit choice for spring.I finally saw A Quiet Place and I am thankful for Krasinski’s beard/knitwear in this movie, as it gave me something to focus on instead of the intense dread levels. What a movie. Emily Blunt delivered reactions to destroy me on every level and it is nice seeing them having a lovely time on the red carpet.

This is at Variety’s Power of Women‘ event, where Blunt was being honored. Blunt wears floral Prada, which has a surprising touch of sequins on the shoulders. Also getting honored was Viola Davis, wearing her fave shade of pink (it looks great on her) in Pamella Roland; more peplum and it would appear that 2012 is making a comeback. I’m not sure how I feel like this on the whole, but Davis looks fabulous. Sandra Oh gives great casual outfit heading into Jimmy Kimmel Live! I am a little obsessed with sweats like this at the moment. In fact I would wear this entire outfit.And now for what Sandra Oh wore on the show. This is a great jumpsuit; Oh looks chic as hell (sorry, Reynolds Woodcock). This also reminds me that I still need to watch Killing Eve.

Get yourself someone who can do both casual and fancy. It was the Scandal series finale last night (things were handled, great clothes were worn), but earlier this week Kerry Washington attended Eva Longoria’s Star ceremony in a killer outfit.

Houndstooth appeared from time to time in Olivia Pope’s wardrobe, but she would not have worn something as colorful as this Oscar de la Renta frock. Sunglasses give it a daytime glam feel and I am head over heels for this look.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

13 Apr

Pink, patterns and things that sparkle are all on the “Out of the Box” agenda this week. Despite the overcast view from my window, I am so ready for all things spring fashion.

Emmy nomination campaigning has begun; new shows are being promoted while other stars are celebrating the end of their long-running series. Plus, there is the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, checking in with Harry Styles on tour and some magazine covers.  My resolution to not buy a new issue until I have read the previous one has not panned out well. *looks at the unread stack and weeps*The women of American Horror Story give great pattern clashing while standing together at a recent FYC event—this is technically last week, but whatever. Sarah Paulson and Leslie Grossman both in animal print Carolina Herrera, while Adina Porter is in a fabulous geometric pattern frock from the Tracee Ellis Ross collection.

Panel attire is something I have discussed a lot of the years here on the blog and you can really go in a lot of different directions. What the AHS ladies have done is coordinate without being too matchy matchy. Killing Eve is very much on my To Watch list; created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and starring Sandra Oh and Jodi Comer. Here they are attending the 1st Cannes International Series Festival to promote the show.

All three looks are perfect for the French setting (I won’t be using the word chic, because Reynolds Woodcock); Waller-Bridge in wide-legged pants and caped sleeve double-breasted ladysuit, a floral jumpsuit for Comer and Oh wears a mix of black tulle and fur. There is a mix of romance and whimsy across the board.Also taking the pink suit to the next level is Busy Philipps in velvet Anaïs Jourden to match the Three Olives Rosé Vodka she is sipping, as part of an endorsement deal. And if you haven’t read Allie Jones’ excellent profile of Philipps from last week then what are you waiting for?The pink suit theme continues with Adam Rippon, looking incredibly sharp (even without socks) at the GLAAD Media Awards.Obsessed with everything Queer Eye and the Fab Five at the moment—including this wonderful collection of reactions from Reddit at The Cut. It is honestly so great to see something so positive on TV and all over my Instagram feed. Karamo Brown also did the black shirt/bow tie combo, which works really well with this jacquard three piece stunner.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine won best comedy—Rosa’s coming out as bisexual storyline has been a highlight of the season—and Stephanie Beatriz is deservedly holding the award. This B99 quote from Beatriz’s speech is worth repeating:

“Every time someone steps up and says who they are, the world becomes a better and more interesting place.”I am on a self-imposed stripe buying ban until June (which is also part of a bet) so instead I have been buying a lot of polka dots. Luckily for me, polka dots are big this spring in stores and on the red carpet; Chelsea Peretti’s frock looks perfect for cocktails, dancing and celebrating media that is inclusive in its representation of the LGBTQ+ community.

For the full list of winners head here.The Scandal farewell tour is in full swing (the series finale is next week) and while I have dipped in and out of these last few seasons, I am excited to see how it will all end for Olivia Pope.

Kerry Washington combines the pink and sparkly trends in a super romantic Erdem on The Tonight Show with a big dash of ’70s inspired disco hair courtesy of hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew.Let’s take a moment to see what Harry Styles is wearing on tour. You guessed it; another Gucci stunner. And it’s pink and sparkly! Very on trend.

At the London date fans Ksenia Kulikova and Luna Riedel organized a massive light up rainbow tribute during “Sweet Creature.” Kulikova and Riedel run the London Rainbow Project and you can read more about this amazing moment at Teen Vogue.Another pink jacket! And for Marie Claire’s fifth annual Fresh Faces issue they have picked five actresses who represent why we should be excited by what is going on in Hollywood right now.

Each look is super colorful, Issa Rae gets the purple treatment and is serving up some ’80s office to the bar outfit realness in Céline. All five covers are fabulous—for Sophie Turner, Yara Shahidi, Riley Keough and Katherine Langford head here—and I will definitely be picking up this issue. The magazine stack grows ever higher.
