Best of the Hollywood Reporter “Women in Entertainment” Celebration

8 Dec

The Hollywood Reporter celebrated their annual “Women in Entertainment” issue with a breakfast event and this means a whole range of daytime styles from ladysuits to patterned dress delights. This year Tina Fey, Ryan Murphy and Megyn Kelly were all honored with Jon Hamm delivering on the funny in his opening speech for Fey.

You can watch the entire thing and it is well worth it.

Plus here are the best looks from the event and there is so much pattern pretty.

simone-bilesKicking off with a ladysuit in a fantastic color and multi-Olympic gold winning medalist Simone Biles crushes it in Marienbad.the-farmigasMore ladysuit goodness from Vera Farmiga and polka dot pussy bow is probably my favorite kind of pussy bow blouse. Joined by younger sister Tassia (for Ryan Murphy celebrating reasons) and she also looks fantastic in one of the many patterned numbers I am now coveting hard.michelle-monaghanGetting all the amazing collar points is Michelle Monaghan in this superb Michael Kors Spring 17 ensemble. Daytime event perfection.eva-longoriaMore florals and another winner with Eva Longoria wearing a dress from her own Limited collection; it is totally affordable and very cute. Plus bonus pockets!niecy-nashFrom roses to leopard print and Niecy Nash is full super sexy whoa in this all powerful Meow and Barks Boutique dress.maria-menounosDipping into that seventies inspiration is Maria Menounos in a fabulous Valentino mini frock. issa-raeWhile I’m not crazy for shoulder cutouts, I do love the print and color of this Ellery dress on Issa Rae.emma-stoneAnd while I’m going crazy for yellow dresses (as I tend to) Emma Stone is smart to remind people of the great La La Land poster during award season and she does so in Giambattista Valli style.constance-zimmerConstance Zimmer mixes casual with glam in a Pat Benatar tee from Janey Lopaty Vintage and super sparkly Milly skirt.aja-naomi-kingIt is not all print and ladysuits; Aja Naomi King looks bold in blue and this Alice + Olivia dress is a great breakfast choice. I’d like to see some hot pink pumps, but I can deal with this neutral tone for an event this early in the day.genevieve-angelsonNow it might look like Genevieve Angelson put on this Chloe ensemble back to front, but I love it so much and she is definitely pulling it off. Plus I really hope another network/streaming platform saves Good Girls Revolt because the story on that show is far from over.tina-feyTo the woman of the hour and really if you haven’t watched the video at the start of this piece then I will urge you to scroll up and do so. Also she looks great in patterned Dolce & Gabbana with a very day appropriate blazer thrown over for good measure.tina-and-jonAnd I’ve got to end on this one for reasons. Oh to have Jon Hamm look at you like that.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

18 Nov

Awards season has really cranked up a notch and this week we have plenty of frock action for you from the Glamour Women of the Year, The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, AFI Fest and an Academy event. Plus bonus magazine covers at the end.

So many awards/shindigs geared toward campaigning and this one of the biggest “Out of the Box” columns from the last four years. It also doubles as a list of movies I am excited about seeing. Pattern and bold color are strong throughout, much to my delight.caitriona-balfeCaitriona Balfe looks stunning in a black and white Burberry gown at the London Evening Standard Theatre Award and it really pops in front of the foliage backdrop. Balfe as we have seen on Outlander suits a whole plethora of styles and this one is giving off some 1920s vibes. Great lipstick color too.ruth-wilsonThe Affair returns for season 3 on Sunday for more memory mashing misery and I am looking forward to see where it will go now that the two season long mystery has been revealed. Last week Ruth Wilson rocked a ladysuit for Interview and now it is floral Erdem at the Theatre Awards.

I’m not a huge fan of the shoulder cut out trend that seems to be everywhere at the moment, but with this halter neck aspect it works like a charm on Wilson. Also lipstick highs. ophelia-lovelibondOphelia Lovibond gets a whole lot of stripes in Emilia Wickstead and Dominic Cooper later had fun with this whole mass of dress. Another super bold lip color and I am all for this trend for award season/everyday life. yara-shahidiYara Shahidi makes two appearances this week on “Out of the Box.” First at the Glamour Women of the Year celebration she crushed it in a pattern clashing dream from Cynthia Rowley and Shahidi is very much in the realm of everything she wears turns to gold; a Magical Fashion Unicorn.simone-bilesOlympic gold medal superstar Simone Biles looks incredible in this block blue and black number. Biles was honored at the event for her sensational achievements over the summer.issa-raeInsecure is one of my favorite new shows and Issa Rae gives off great style onscreen and IRL. Here she is at the Glamour Women of the Year 2016 Live Summit in a fabulous black and white Zero + Maria Cornejo dress.gillian-jacobs-and-ahna-oreillyLots of Glamour events this week including this Live Summit breakfast and another black and white dress winner paired with super cute flats from Gillian Jacobs. Ahna O’Reilly ticks all the pleated skirt boxes paired with a “Future is Female” tee and leather jacket. The perfect balance of casual/dressed up for an event at this time.janelle-monaeJanelle Monae is in not one, but two hotly tipped award season movies and I cannot wait to see both Hidden Figures and Moonlight. At the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 8th annual Governors Awards Monae delivered on her usually top notch red carpet attire in Toni Maticevski and I cannot wait to see so much more of her during this very busy award season. 

Plus, dress pocket points!greta-gerwigAlso appearing in two contenders this season is Greta Gerwig with Jackie and 20th Century Women. The latter is a spiritual sequel of sorts to Mike Mills’ Beginners and I cannot wait. Wearing Emilia Wickstead and looking fantastic at this Academy event and purple doesn’t get utilized enough on the red carpet. Also if that seam is anything to go by then it looks like we have another bonus pockets number.skai-jacksonYeah you guessed it – La La Land is on my highly anticipated list and at the AFI Fest screening Skai Jackson looks super cute in a textured floral Manoush frock and sparkly Jimmy Choo heels. sally-field-margo-martindale-ruth-neggaThere is something wonderful about this image and all the heart eyes toward Margo Martindale, Ruth Negga (in a sequin stripe delight) and Sally Field at the AFI Fest Indie Contender’s Roundtable. With awards there are roundtables and I couldn’t be happier about these two things right now.

For all things good Margo Martindale stories check out The Americans discussion from a couple of weeks ago.rebecca-hall-and-chris-pineAlso from this event is Rebecca Hall in an ensemble that would be ideal for both a day and an evening event and Chris Pine showing why he keeps getting bumped up the Chris List. Great salt and pepper beard game right now.teen-vogueTeen Vogue has consistently delivered on both good covers and good content this year; the December issue is no exception and Yara Shahidi makes her second appearance on this edition “Look of the Week” along with Rowan Blanchard. This magazine and the work it produces is so important right now and it is encouraging that a publication aimed at a younger audience is striving in this way.wwdNow for Yara Shahidi’s onscreen mother and Tracee Ellis Ross is crushing it in casual chic on the cover of WWD in a super chunky knit, skirt and heels. Such a striking and simple image in an outfit that lives up to the Style Innovator title WWD is bestowing on her.
