From Teen TV to IRL Besties: Celebrating Busy Philipps and Michelle Williams

16 Nov

TV Ate My Wardrobe regular readers will know how much I love it when onscreen friendships blossom into IRL ones and the ultimate version of this is decades long relationships from the teen shows that shaped me; Devon Odessa who played Sharon Cherski on My So-Called Life was one of Claire Danes’ bridesmaids, Keri Russell is still super tight with her Felicity ex-roomie Amanda Foreman and Busy Philipps is often Michelle Williams’ date to big award season events like the Independent Spirit Awards, Oscars (see below) and the Tonysmichelle-williams-and-busy-philippsThe Philipps/Williams friendship is perhaps the most important thing to come out of Dawson’s Creek. Well that and my never ending crush on Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams being my forever hair icon.

Michelle Williams doesn’t have an Instagram, but Busy Philipps often uses her page to celebrate the achievements of her best friend including Broadway achievements and general hangouts. This week Philipps went to a screening of Manchester by the Sea; a movie that is getting a lot of award season buzz with Michelle Williams being hotly tipped in the supporting category. michelle-w-and-busy-pAt the after party a crab cake tray getting dropped all over Philipps led to an early exit that was documented on Philipps’ Instagram Story with Michelle Williams adorably asking if she can swear on this video. Here is a frame from that moment, but alas Insta Stories only last 24 hours before they disappear forever. Trust me, it was a delight.

 

They also went shopping in Beverley Hills this week and looked super cute while doing so.

Later Busy Philipps wore this outfit to a Madewell event and this is a boozy brunch ideal line-up.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

11 Dec

“Out of the Box” is a mostly movie affair this week including premieres, celebrations and awards aplenty. Oh and a small press tour of sorts has really kicked into gear. Sartorial highs come in a variety of forms and this week’s edition includes mini frocks, floor length affairs, ladysuits and so many patterns in the mix.

Lupita Nyong'oHappy Friday! And this shot of Lupita Nyong’o in Mexico City on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press tour is full of so much joy and instantly makes me smile. As I mentioned earlier this week she is really working the quilted jacket (never an easy task) and this is a fun mix of casual retro cool with fancy futuristic cool in silver Louis Vuitton. Oh hey there smiling Oscar Isaac in the background.

Daisy RidleyMore Star Wars treats with Daisy Ridley wearing a very Alana Bloom looking ladysuit in Christian Dior Resort 2016 checks and Ridley is already making fashion waves in this slightly bonkers get-up. This is already meeting my high expectations for this press tour. Now all we need is some Gwendoline Christie.

Zosia MametI like this starry print dress on Zosia Mamet at the Sisters premiere a lot and not just because I already own something similar. Definitely the kind of thing you could dress down with knit tights and boots or up as Mamet has done here. Last week saw the first full Girls season 5 trailer released and I’m really looking forward to the new season.

Saoirse RonanAnother dress to be filed under ‘super cute and also kind of festive’ with Saoirse Ronan wearing a sparkly delight at the 2015 British Independent Film Awards.

Carey MulliganNow Carey Mulligan’s Gucci number is not so easy to pull off as there is A LOT going on and yet I think she is totally pulling it off. She also put a bird on it for the British Independent Film Awards.

Liv TylerMore long sleeve long gown pattern glory at ‘An Evening Honoring Valentino’ with Liv Tyler in Valentino (naturally) and this is giving me so many Pre-Raphaelites painting vibes (and especially this Ophelia painting). It has been a very good week for Liv Tyler and now all we need is for The Leftovers to get renewed.

Diane KrugerMore Valentino dark romanticism with a caped feather creation that might fall into the Diane Kruger is a Magical Fashion Unicorn category. Between the feathers and the green hue I am also getting flashbacks to Keri Russell’s Met Gala Altuzarra gown.

Olivia WildeContinuing a strong end of year red carpet presence in so many different styles is Olivia Wilde who has become an “Out of the Box” regular and this time she is killing it at The Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Women In Entertainment Breakfast. There is something so Katherine Hepburn about this Marc Jacobs ensemble and I am in love with this entire look.

Constance ZimmerConstance Zimmer does a different kind of cool at the Hollywood Reporter breakfast and this is an ideal daytime event outfit. Just with a whole lot of spill potential. Excellent red lipstick and shoe choice.

Kris and Selma BlairThis is not an endorsement of whatever is going on with Kris Jenner’s outfit (it looks like an unfinished craft project), but I can’t pass up the opportunity of showing IRL Kris Jenner embracing the American Crime Story Kris Jenner. I am so ready for this mini-series. Also Selma Blair looks really great here (also wearing a dress which would not be my first choice when near food/drink).

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

29 May

A relatively quiet week for “Out of the Box” but there are still plenty of treats in store including another Sarah Michelle Gellar reunion moment, magazine covers, pre-Emmy nominations events and how to brighten up the red carpet if you’re a dude.

IMG_1659Orange is the New Black returns in just two weeks (and then we will have the dilemma of  how quick to watch it) and Bust continues its excellent cover run with Laverne Cox looking super cute in a very summery gingham halter top and high waisted shorts.

Ellie KemperEmmy roundtable season is here and The Hollywood Reporter kicked off the acting side of things with funny ladies talking about a whole range of issues in smart and interesting ways. Ellie Kemper’s tiered skirt (or an extreme twist on peplum) with the turquoise underlining is the standout in this collection of bold dresses and I love what she says about Kimmy’s style during this conversation “I think that [Kimmy] came from this horrible, unspeakable experience, and she is tough like a young girl might be tough. She is all pinks and candy and yellows but still very powerful.”

IMG_0680Now this is how you do a “For Your Consideration” ad with bonus lady suit points (those leather sleeves!).

Viola DavisAt a screening for How to Get Away with Murder, Viola Davis does casual chic in an all black ensemble save for some sparkly sneakers. Heels versus flats have been a big talking point since Cannes and while I’m not sure these kinds of flats would work on a big red carpet event, they look really great in this setting.

Cruel IntentionsThanks to a surprise reunion at a performance of The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions this post has been written with the Cruel Intentions soundtrack as the musical accompaniment (sorry neighbors for my attempts to sing-along to Skunk Anansie) and it has made me so happy for so many reasons. I think Sarah Michelle Gellar is fully on board with the 90s nostalgia kick. Next up recreating one of these WB ads.

Colton HaynesColton Haynes switches out this signature red for pink at the San Andreas premiere demonstrating that suits don’t just come in three colors.
