This week has seen the spotlight get turned on the amazing stylists who get actors red carpet ready with the annual Hollywood Reporter Top 25. We covered the issue here, but we’ve got party highlights and some treats from the number 1 name on that list throughout this post.
Plus SXSW delivers on the exact kind of outfits I am looking to now that spring is finally here (sorry for those who had snow this week). There’s also SNL musical performances and great late night outfits to enjoy.At the Hollywood Reporter Power Stylist dinner Sarah Paulson shows just why Karla Welch is a sartorial force to be reckoned with as she makes this peach Prada embellished frock look so much more low maintenance than it is. Love the Chinese style collar and strong brow.
Posing with the man of the hour – also wearing Prada – and showing that he’s also got the post-awards fashion sorted is Mahershala Ali. Such a strong shirt pattern choice and he’s making a statement that he’s fabulous. Karla Welch is also good at dressing herself (which is a weird sentence to write) in this simple and summery long Rosie Assoulin gown. Also points for sensible flats for both Welch and Busy Philipps; who I am loving in all white. This night also provided A+ Busy Instagram stories with a guest appearance from Sarah Paulson who playfully mimicked Busy’s penchant for saying ‘guys.’In the way Sundance is to knits and coats, SXSW delivers on prints and super cute summer frocks. Jenny Slate is a SXSW regular and always delivers on the exact kind of outfits I would also want to wear (aside from the shoes his time). Bonus pocket points too! A busy SXSW for Noël Wells with premieres for Mr. Roosevelt and Infinity Baby. The above is at the latter and the matching star blast separates paired with black boots gives this look an edge. I really like Wells in season 1 of Master of None and I’m looking forward to seeing both of these projects, but especially Mr. Roosevelt as Wells writes, directs and stars in it.More Karla Welch picks showing just how versatile she is as a stylist as it isn’t all just award season and at the American Gods panel Emily Browning looks incredible in super floral Miu Miu and chunky Prada heels.
My intrigue levels for American Gods are set to high and while I don’t know the source material, the cast and creative team sell it to me alone. Plus this new trailer is giving me a whole lot of costume design thoughts already.At the Win it All premiere Stephanie Beatriz gives great wide-leg pants in stunning cobalt blue paired with a funky strapless top. I just bought some wide-leg pants and while I have no idea what shoes I’m gonna wear them with seeing Beatriz in this trend with this styling is giving me some ideas.Also going baggy is Lorde doing a full oversized suit thing at the Elvis Duran Z100 morning show and to keep with this week’s stylist theme she is another Karla Welch client.
Lorde performed on SNL and “Green Light” has been on repeat since it got released. More high-waisted/wide-leg and the backless sparkly top is everything.
Keri Russell loves a bit of leather for late night and much like myself she loves a bit of Grease 2 (it is the better movie, don’t @ me).
For Seth Meyers she went all black with a splash of leopard print with her choice of Louboutins. And because I love all things celebrity real estate this sneak peek at her house (with bonus Matthew Rhys and baby in the background) is ticking those boxes. Makeup artist Tina Turnbow also gave a close up look of her work and I love a smoky eye.
There are two clips from the Seth Meyers interview; one is about the much talked about Matthew Rhys episode of Girls and this is the one that you can watch on a whole lot of entertainment/style websites. So we’ve opted for the second clip in which Keri Russell talks about the time she met Matthew Rhys ten years before The Americans and forgot about it until he reminded her.
Jane the Virgin returned this week much to my teary eyed joy and this cast continues to deliver on the social media behind the scenes front. Plus we have a week of super stylish moments including Insta postcards from Cannes, costume secrets and more.
Kicking off again with Gil and George because I really want to see Oh, Hello again and because the guest stars keep on coming. Care Delevingne (just know I’m doing the Reese voice) is essentially wearing lounge wear including boob slippers, which actually feels entirely appropriate for this show.
The cast that watches their season premiere together, stays together.
From the Jane the Virgin season 3 premiere and what the cast looks like all aged up. Just let it be known that this was the part of the episode where I went from welling up, to single tear and quickly followed by double eye sobbing. This show.
While I am strongly Team Michael this is very flame emoji and I cannot wait for whatever fantasy sequence will deliver this costuming delight.
Adorable husband alert.
It is going to be a while until Game of Thrones comes back so this will have to do for now.
Abigail Spencer has a whole lot of Timeless behind the scenes photos on her Insta including this incredible look at the costume detail from the Lincoln episode.
Also this is delightful and giving every lipstick yes.
Carol’s got all the best clothes on The Last Man on Earth.
There’s a new Crazy Ex-Girlfriend theme and while I’m definitely going to miss singing along to “she’s so broken inside” I really love the aesthetic and vibe of this new one.
More Mad Men costume flashbacks from January Jones and the time Jones was pregnant meaning Betty had to put on weight.
Regular readers will know that I have major Stephanie Beatriz glasses envy and this collection really is everything. Saving this picture for when I get a new prescription.
Now entering the amazing outfits portion of the week and first up Ruth Negga in a very cute Rochas skirt and short sleeved sweater. Lipstick points too.
Yara Shahidi continues to deliver with her style choices and her makeup here also looks incredible.
Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby have been in Cannes for a television industry event and it was hard to narrow down my picture choice to just two as they have been crushing it.
I am so happy it is fall for knitwear reasons and this is very chic example. When in France.
Sarah Silverman making photo collages of Michael Sheen is relationship goals.
Fall TV premiere dates inch closer – and You’re the Worst is back tonight! – and so plenty of behind the scenes promo is occurring. Plus fabulous guest stars, guest directors and one show is almost forever finished shooting.
A lot of beard to kick off this week’s Insta highlights with Kristofer Hivju and Michael Fassbender. Future Fassy in Game of Thrones possibilities are probably low, but this wouldn’t be his first HBO venture as he was in a couple of Band of Brothers episodes.
Abbi Jacobson on Portlandia alert.
Looking forward to September 20 and the return of these guys (and their new captain). Stephanie Beatriz related glasses envy is still high.
New Girl also returns September 20 and Hannah Simone’s got the co-stars in sunglasses shots on hand. First up Max Greenfield and bathrobes.
And then Zooey Deschanel under an umbrella wearing a headband and check shirt look that I will no doubt be after when this episode airs.
Also back the same week on Fox is Empire and Taraji P. Henson gives a little costume sneak peek featuring some very large hooped earrings.
Welcome back my fave screechy teen on a prestige drama and it looks like Whitney’s going all domestic goddess in a cat covered apron in season 3 of The Affair.
From the summer TCA and the Mr Robot ladies continue to crush it.
To be filed under “this is kind of cool, but also creepy as fuck.”
Eva Longoria is directing an episode of Jane the Virgin this season and everyone is very pleased with this. Also the amount of Brett Dier popping up in these shots would suggest Michael is not going to be dearly departed.
And a ladies only version. I am thrilled to see Bridget Regan kicking it on set.
While we won’t get to see the final season of Girls until early next year, the show is currently wrapping up and these final days are getting the Instagram treatment.
And polaroids to mark Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke’s last day shooting.
BrainDead continues to be my favorite show of the summer, but the last two weeks have been lacking any Gustav so hopefully the next episode will rectify this.
Happy You’re the Worst Day! I am so ready.
A mix of Oscars getting ready/parties/day after action with the usual TV set action plus a dash of Broadway in this week’s Instagram highlights.
Nothing made happier about Oscar night than the Alias reunion that took place at the Vanity Fair party. So thank you Victor Garber’s husband Rainer Andreesen for taking this photo and releasing it to the world.
One more because feelings.
What breakfast looks like on the morning of the Oscars. Always avocado on toast and some all important bacon.
And what dinner looks like after winning an Oscar. The Converse change makes Brie a girl after my own heart (I have a mystery huge bruise on my ankle which I’m putting down to wearing heels for the first time in 6 months).
In other pre-Oscars prep Sophie Turner opts for this simple tea with lemon and her invite shot.
Jacob Tremblay continues his adorable reign with these past and present shots with Sofia Vergara and super charming caption to boot. At the Oscars and after parties he got to hang out with several more Star Wars stars. Also adorable.
Chrissy Teigen was one of our Oscar best dressed and here is another view of her dress as she gets sewn into thing (and once again the bathroom question springs to mind).
A really good ad for Neutrogena as both Kerry Washington and Jennifer Garner look amazing (and are both on our best dressed list). Excellent on brand synergy here.
Just like us Oscars edition.
While January Jones continues to crush it with her hashtag usage.
What every post-Oscars outfit should look like.
Moving on from the Oscars and Yael Grobglas is serving up excellent OOTD in a 70s inspired look. Plus yes it always does help having Rogelio behind you.
A behind the scenes look at Gina Rodriguez hanging high up in the air filming one of this week’s fantasy sequences on Jane the Virgin.
A stunning photo from the recent Entertainment Weekly of Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o celebrating Eclipsed’s move to Broadway.
A blood covered Walking Dead cast looking a whole lot happier in this video than we are used to seeing them. It’s nice to see so many smiles.
Why it can be bad to nap on the job.
We’ve had Oscars getting dressed behind the scenes and now for a costuming one with Chloe Bennet getting help with her zip on Agents of SHIELD.
Max Greenfield’s hair is as high as it is wonderful. It might help that fellow passenger Bia Iftikhar is an award winning hair stylist.
A super busy time for Saoirse Ronan with award season and Crucible rehearsals with previews starting Monday. So the day after the Oscars. That really is no break for Ronan. Tavi Gevinson captures the group recording and after reading Stacy Schiff’s The Witches last month I really want to check back in with The Crucible as I haven’t read it since high school.
We’ve got New Year’s celebrations covered, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunions galore, costume sneak peeks and a snowy day at work as the weather finally turns cold in this week’s collection from Instagram.
You might already know my feelings about IRL friendships which have developed from pretend ones on screen, but if you don’t then just know that I am so here for all of this. The cast of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are still super tight including New Year’s Eve hangout tight.
Blake Lively is also getting in on the Amber Tamblyn action and this implies that maybe there’s some husband sharing occurring somewhere. Maybe this is a sequel in the works. Lively also gave a shout out to America Ferrera’s new show Superstore and there’s more between these ladies than just the perfect jeans.
The quality of this shot isn’t great, but I didn’t want to leave Alexis Bledel out of the mix, especially as I just jumped (albeit very late) on board the Gilmore Girls train. Plus I think I might need to give Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants a rewatch.
More IRL friendships and New Year’s party shenanigans featuring a good level of outfit sparkles, but in this case the real life relationship came before the fictional one (and looks a whole lot happier than the one we see on our screens). Lena Dunham just announced that Girls will end in 2017 after season 6 and I agree that by then it will be time to call it quits. Season 5 returns next month.
This lovely rendition from Charlie Day and Mark Duplass just made me realize that we didn’t even try and attempt to sing Auld Lang Syne this year with the obligatory only knowing a tiny portion of the lyrics and mumble singing the rest.
Happy New Year indeed! This kind of denim jacket is my favorite kind (and not just because I have one).
This was a fun end of year Instagram thing where you can find out your nine most liked photos from 2015 and post them to your feed. Raul Castillo noticed a repeating theme in his selection (my theme was selfies, food and puppies).
For Krysten Ritter there is a whole lot of Jessica Jones, David Tenant and her dog Mikey.
An outtake from The Leftovers season 2 promo shoot and one which looks far more serene than Kevin’s desperate drowning reach toward Nora.
Curlers and snow for the Legends of Tomorrow cast with it looking full on brr cold.
I do love a floor plan.
Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo took over the Costume Designers Guild Instagram yesterday showing off all kinds of behind the scenes stuff including plenty of Prada bags, THE white hat and this selection of Olivia Pope pumps.
Keeping on theme and a very different array of footwear over at The Mindy Project.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was back last night much to our delight. Good spy like photo taking skills from Stephanie Beatriz with an unsuspecting Andre Braugher in the background.
Expect to see way more Brie Larson (and Jacob Tremblay because this kid can rock a tux) around these parts as award season kicks into full gear. Here are Larson and Tremblay with their NBR awards and I am very much looking forward to sobbing through at least half of Room.
One last Behind the Insta-Scenes for 2015 and as you can probably gather there is not a lot of set action going on right now. Instead we have plenty of fun holiday hangouts, festive decorations and some red carpet treats because some of the Star Wars cast never stop working.
Taking the title of most relevant pop culture Christmas tree decoration. I want one.
And a closer runner up for this prize is Sarah Jessica Parker’s Alexander Hamilton bauble. I also want one of these.
Back to Star Wars and Carrie Brownstein and company have some very on point socks.
Daisy Ridley is back on premiere duty for The Force Awakens and as “Out of the Box” is concluding its Best of 2015 countdown this is the only place to shower praise on another excellent red carpet dress choice. This time Ridley has gone for super floral purple Jason Wu.
Because her hair looks really great and I spy a cape.
Hopefully they can work this into Brooklyn Nine-Nine somehow.
Having not realized Bobby Cannavale was on Instagram until this week I have to make up for it with this cracker paper crown double hat shot.
Pizza print pajama goals.
All the flames and hundred points emojis.
This color is incredible on Kether Donohue. As I’ve said before on many occasion cast members hanging out IRL is one of my fave things.
And again. This time OITNB hangouts.
Laverne Cox taking a moment to share this collection of magazine cover delights also makes me very happy.
Amy Schumer delivers on the excellent comedians #TBT front.
The star of Master of None and everything about this caption/photo is perfect.
Plenty of Insta gifts both holiday themed and general behind the scenes delights including many happy memories, magazine covers, newcomers and style inspiration.
Everything about this is perfect.
Everything about this is perfect (Part II).
Another Throwback Thursday treat with Justin Theroux looking far from Kevin Garvey and Amy Sedaris killing as per usual.
I’ve fallen behind on The Mindy Project, but what I’ve heard about the most recent episodes has got me intrigued. And of course there is always the pattern clashing joy from Mindy’s costuming as an added bonus.
Things did not end well for Lady on Game of Thrones, but luckily life does not imitate life and Sophie Turner adopted Zunni when Lady’s part came to an end. Someone seems pretty happy to see Santa.
As “Out of the Box” is going to be an end of year Best Of for the next two weeks I didn’t want to miss out on this Broad City fashion mag cover joy, so thank you Broad City Insta for posting their Flare shot.
More Stephanie Beatriz glasses to covet.
Another Instagram newcomer and Will Forte went with the JJ Abrams lens flare option showcasing both his epic beardiness and Mary Steenburgen.
Oh to be in New York so I could go see Oh, Hello.
Gil and George not only got a stellar New York Times review, but they also had a very handsome guest come to their show.
Now entering the Jane the Virgin portion this week and this cast continues to be one of the most active on Instagram. First up Brett Dier sharing a festive message/picture.
These two don’t spend a whole lot of time on screen together, but the writers should definitely make this happen as it will probably be magical.
And I am so here for this.
From one prolific Instagram using cast to another and this friendship appears to be just as close off screen as well as on.
More frames inspiration. Plus #FriendshipGoals.
And because I guess it is the most on point hashtag for this SNL sketch #SquadGoals.
Kirsten Dunst posted this to Twitter and it not only perfectly showcases everything that I love about Peggy’s costuming, but it also looks like it could be from 1979. Got to love a filter.
A bumper “Behind the Insta-Scenes” this week including Halloween both on and off set, cast hangouts, reminiscing and dancing. There is always time for dancing.
Everything about this photo brings me so much joy. I miss Parks and Rec.
More Parks behind the scenes delights from Retta and a good reminder that Aziz’s new show Master of None lands on Netflix in two days!
Continuing the Parks and Rec theme and combining it with the musical that like many people I can’t stop listening to at the moment. The fact that Ben Schwartz has Jean Ralphio’s faked death headstone is also aces.
There’s a whole lot of late shoot not so happy face from the B99 team.
And then these face parts expressions.
Entering the Halloween portion and You’re the Worst doubled down on Sunday Funday this season with a fantastic tapestry of scares, amazing costumes, hilarity and relationship drama.
Which Aya Cash then used as an IRL dress-up solution because why not? These wings give me so many teen flashbacks and I still have a pair stuffed in the back of my wardrobe.
Bowling shoes plus Halloween equals this fun set-up on Sleepy Hollow. Abbie’s Beyonce is one of the best costumes I have seen on TV.
January Jones continues her excellent Insta hashtag game and a spot on look for Halloween.
Best costume from Tatiana Maslany.
Stark sister feels.
Throwing a Stark brother into the blurry mix – will they ever be reunited on Game of Thrones?
Look who came back to The Mindy Project! Although I still want a talk show with Adam Pally and Ben Schwartz to be more than a onetime thing.
The Flash set looks like a lot of fun…
Even with the slightly questionable snack preferences.
Frankie J. Alvarez shows off some sweet moves in his super tight jeans in this throwback to season 2 of Looking.
Woah! Scream Queen spoilers alert! Not really, but now I really want Gwyneth Paltrow to be the killer.
I haven’t watched this week’s Scream Queens yet and while I keep fluctuating between enjoyment and eye roll toward this show (standard reaction to a Ryan Murphy project) this pairing does raise my interest levels. Now to make the Gwyneth thing actually happen.
Speaking of horror show and Maya Kazan’s got the most terrifying addition to her look on The Knick.
Part 14 of the real life series entitled ‘A show I need to catch up on before it returns.’
Ending things this week with this very hypnotic video. And even though I can only see a tiny portion of Elizabeth Banks’ outfit, it already looks like she is killing it on the Mockingjay press tour.
Plenty more returning shows this week offering up behind the scenes treats on TV Instagram. Plus old cast mates hanging out together, Empire style sneak peeks and what some of the stars of
The Americans have been up to during its hiatus.
Paris Fashion Week delivered a super adorable Game of Thrones reunion complete with super adorable hashtags to boot.
They were frenemies on screen, but this Ugly Betty trio looks thrilled to be hanging out together again.
Except when secret projects are being filmed featuring a song by another one of their Ugly Betty co-stars. Whatever Michael Urie and Becki Newton have planned count me in.
Potential disguises/season 4 storyline ideas for Nina and Oleg on The Americans?
Meanwhile Kimmy lost her corkscrew curls and has been busy walking the runway at the Balenciaga Paris Fashion Week show.
Bathrooms at fancy pants events seem like they would be the most fascinating and friendly places for dress related problems.
Legit screaming about this guest appearance. Gina Rodriguez’s caption says it all really.
Each week the Empire costume design team raise their game and tonight’s episode is no different.
And now they are getting to show off their ethereal maternity wear style for Rhonda.
Garvey love for Ann Dowd on the set of The Leftovers.
And now I want a project where Liv Tyler and Margaret Qualley play mother and daughter. More evidence to support this notion.
The Flash and Barry’s fabulous boots are back!
Alan Cumming took over the official Good Wife Insta on Sunday to celebrate its premiere and there are plenty of behind the scenes shots including Eli’s secret aspirations and a highly anticipated future guest star.
Varying degrees of pouting effort in this Scream Queens photo.
I can see Ilana working this tee paired with some denim shorts on Broad City.
The Stephanie Beatriz glasses envy continues this week.
A whole lot returning shows and soon to be returning shows as the new fall season is here. Which means plenty of social media engagement and this is one bumper “Behind the Insta-Scenes.”
Breaking theme early and let’s start with the photo I can’t even deal with; dudes from Friday Night Lights and an adorable baby.
Empire returned last week and cast viewing parties for the premiere were all the rage.
Taraji P Henson caught the more chaotic side.
And new cast member Marisa Tomei was joined by a few famous friends (and Empire co-creator Lee Daniels).
The HUGE Empire viewing numbers are a good indicator of hype matching the amount of people watching and Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez posted this selfie from the Emmys to celebrate its return.
One more Empire post and this super fierce Cookie in sweats look.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine also returned this week much to our delight (Gina’s sweater game was the human equivalent of the 100 emoji) and this photo from a night shoot is old horror movie reaction fantastic. Stephanie Beatriz is giving glasses frames inspiration.
And she is also killing it on the work snuggie front.
Victor Garber is now on Instagram! So hopefully this means Alias Throwback Thursday posts are coming our way.
Getting a good look at Willa Holland in Thea’s crime fighting costume on Arrow. I have questions relating to the treadmill.
Willa Holland still in her new getup with the Arrow ladies/bad ass bitches.
Rounding out the CW superhero Instas with The Flash’s Danielle Panabaker showing off some heavier bangs for Caitlin and a pair of boots that will probably never be seen on screen.
Moving onto another CW show and Jane the Virgin returns in just under two weeks! That is a very interesting looking table/assortment of drinks and snacks.
More Jane and this time goofing around with snacks. Or recreating that iconic John Locke Lost moment.
Emilia Clarke finally her hands on a Game of Thrones Emmy. Or rather someone’s hand. And that’s what holds her hair in under all of Daenerys’ locks.
While we’re on the subject of Emmy winners.
There’s the posing hard version…
And the ‘they’re just like us’ version.
Bookending this week’s post with another adorable photo.
