Out of the Box: Look of the Week

29 Jan

Continuing our Sundance fashion love-in with more knitwear, boots and coat treats for you to scroll through. Plus awards season keeps on keeping on, the American Crime Story red carpet delivers and another fantastic magazine cover has been unveiled. Jenna MaloneJena Malone is slaying at the Lovesong premiere in matching black and white checks in an outfit that looks super chic and cozy at the same time. Topping things off with killer red lips and boots.Maya RudolphGoing slightly more casual with checks is Maya Rudolph at the Mr Pig premiere also earning those all important red lipstick points. Sundance continues to be my fave for all things that I might actually have in my wardrobe. Elisabeth MossSparkly jumper dress, black tights and boots for Elisabeth Moss at the premiere for The Free World is the glitzy form of red carpet attire here; count me all in.Elisabeth Moss SundanceThis is just the best combination of all the things I love from Elisabeth Moss out and about at Sundance. My only concern is the lack of gloves. This calls for a good pair of fingerless chunky knits or some Carol inspired leather ones.Tegan and SaraMore Sundance red carpet excellence from Tegan and Sara with hints of #LadySuitWatch2016 on display at The Intervention premiere. Tegan’s grey boots are high on my covet list.Natasha Lyonne and Clea DuvallAll the 90s teen movie feelings are being felt as a result of The Intervention red carpet. Also boosted by Natasha Lyonne’s sweater looking like a black version of the dog on the “Odelay” cover.America FerreraPolka dots pretty (plus pockets!) for America Ferrera at the Producers Guild Awards and this Alexia Maria dress is ticking all our boxes. Ferrera has been a regular on TV Ate My Wardrobe over this busy red carpet season and she recently pointed out she is currently living in a world of clothing extremes.Anne HathawayFirst of all let’s ditch any kind of headlines that refer to a baby bump as if it is an accessory that can be removed at will (see every DM headline ever – i.e. “[insert pregnant celeb] takes baby bump to x”). Secondly the whole “unveiling their baby bump” nonsense can also go. So here is Anne Hathaway wearing a very cute Marc Jacobs dress and yes she looks radiant, but she always tends to pregnancy or not. *end of rant*Blackish kidsThe kids from Black-ish continue their style domination at the NAACP Awards Nominees’ Luncheon this week. And I still really need to get caught up on this show.Aya CashAya Cash was early to #LadySuitWatch2016 and she is keeping a solid jacket game in this gold lame number on the red carpet for The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story (a show that is very high on my most anticipated list). As someone who isn’t in the cast this is ideal attire as it is super cool without being too showy.Angel ParkerAngel Parker is playing attorney Shawn Chapman – part of OJ’s Dream Team – and she’s paired a bold red dress with an excellent array of accessories from silver pumps to a mirrored clutch (which looks a lot like this Viola Davis one). Also those all important red lipstick points.Sarah PaulsonSarah Paulson has been killing it on the red carpet of late and this is another triumph (even if as Samantha Powell mentions this Stella McCartney dress was everywhere in 2012). Such a good color.Amanda PeetAmanda Peet’s look wouldn’t be out of place in the top half of this post and as with Aya Cash this is the ideal kind of outfit for someone who is not in the project. Sweater, lipstick and casually slung coat over the shoulder yeses all around.Jussie SmollettOne of my favorite magazine covers of recent years was from Out and this Jussie Smollet shot is another case of letting a strong image do all the talking. In the interview he lays it all out including this:

“God, I’ve never had to talk about this, so I’m trying to find the words. If I had to label myself, I would label myself as a gay man. With that said, I believe that love is the only thing that matters, and I would hope that anybody would leave themselves open — not to gender, but to love. I would hope that people would not close themselves off from what could be if, lo and behold, you meet somebody that just sweeps you off your feet, and you just can’t do anything about it. If we truly believe that we are born this way, then why do we try to stifle the way we were born? If I fall in love down the road with a woman, I’m going to love that woman.”

It is worth checking out the full interview here and there are also more dreamy pictures from the editorial waiting.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Jan

My Name is Jonas” has been stuck in my head all week and there is a very obvious reason for this as social media has been awash with a blizzard by a certain name. So yes, plenty of snow pics from this edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes. Plus Sundance, red lipstick (insert emoji here), guests stars, that touted Friends reunion and more.

Snow plus dogs equals all the adorable especially when the dog is also dressed for the occasion. Cush Jumbo’s fur hood/gloves/big scarf continues the theme of all things winter wear this week on TV Ate My Wardrobe.

Russell Tovey’s dog Rocky has snow shoes and I can’t even with how cute this is. Rocky does not seem thrilled by this weather.

 

Diane Kruger attempts a potentially perilous jump in the air snow pic and if I attempted this the likelihood of sticking the landing would be slim. Excellent coats and mittens choice (wouldn’t expect anything less). What we really want to know is who took the photo?

Get ready for more Rami Malek in Dior. A brand which has already served him very well.

Knitwear, Boots and Coats Galore at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival

25 Jan

In a sea of red carpets at this time of year Sundance stands out because heels are replaced by boots and wool is a predominant fabric. Plus the chance of sheer ruining an ensemble is dramatically reduced. Award season indulges in wish fulfillment aspects of fashion and the fancy pants levels are high; while I love the decadent and intricate details of gowns galore, there is something rather wonderful about the casual cool at the Sundance Film Festival.

What this boils down to is a combination of a several things including a love of all things winter wear – yes I have snow FOMO right now – with a dash of ‘stars they’re just like us’ and the kind of movies that are being showcased. Considering how many different knitted I am wearing right now (including leggings and long bootie socks) combined with how many sweater posts we have produced on TV Ate My Wardrobe it will come as no big surprise that I am in style heaven right now.

Aubrey Plaza and Jenny SlateApril Ludgate was an ultimate sweater queen and there was no doubt that Aubrey Plaza would not disappear from these pages when Parks and Recreation ended. At the Joshy premiere Plaza goes for a cozy ribbed sweater delight paired with skinny jeans, black boots and the always wonderful Jenny Slate. Also killing it with her boots choice, pleated skirt and sweater tee.

Amandla StenbergCeleb style lounges pretty much sound like the best thing especially when warm coats and boots are up for grabs so Sundance has this perk in the bag too. At Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge Amandla Stenberg gives a good style lesson in long dress chunky knits; performing the double of super cozy and funky all at once.

Alison Brie SundanceAlso at the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge Alison Brie shows off fur hooded and toggle coat excellence demonstrating exactly why this is the ideal place for a freebie haul.

Chloe Sevigny and Natasha LyonneGetting whiffs of Grey Gardens and now picturing Chloë Sevigny and Natasha Lyonne as Big and Little Edie as they attend Lena Dunham and Planned Parenthood’s ‘Sex, Politics & Film’ cocktail reception. I mean this as a huge compliment. Sweater heaven continues.

Allison Janney and Sian HederWhere else would you see Allison Janney in green leather pants?! Extra points for the chunky roll neck sweater at the Tallulah premiere. Tallulah writer/director Sian Heder is pretty much wearing my platonic ideal of a casual outfit – boots/tights/striped dress – and I am very much looking forward to seeing this film.

Brianna HildebrandBrianna Hildebrand covers all the coat and patterned shirt bases at the First Girl I Loved premiere. Jeans are once again the pants of choice paired with – you guessed it – black boots.

To avoid this post being an endless scrolling exercise we’ve put the rest of our favorite Sundance looks in the gallery below. Just click on the image for a better look and so many more sweater, outerwear, boots and winter casual attire offerings.

For more Sundance be sure to check back for “Out of the Box: Look of the Week” on Friday and here are some highlights from last year including THAT Coach sweater I am still coveting.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Jan

Coats, tights, sweaters and boots aplenty this week with the Sundance Film Festival style. Plus party dresses, magazine covers and a slightly different approach to walking in the snow.

Greta GerwigAt the Mistress America premiere Greta Gerwig does the cute patterned dress, tights and ankle boots thing with aplomb.

Greta Gerwig SundanceAnd because I couldn’t choose which outfit I liked best here is a Greta Gerwig’s slightly more casual look for the Sundance portrait session with more incredible boots and an animal print top. Gerwig co-wrote Mistress America with Noah Baumbach and as Frances Ha was my favorite film of 2013 I have high hopes for this one. Kicking things off nicely in charming style.

Kathryn HahnTicking all the boxes – coat, dress, boots, tights – is Kathryn Hahn and I love Sundance fashion because we get to see a less flashy form of movie promoting style. And I love Kathryn Hahn.

Jessica WilliamsJessica Williams works the layering and an excellent pair of brown boots (pattern socks plus) in her portrait for People, Places, Things.

Mark and Jay DuplassCute brothers alert with Mark and Jay Duplass at the premiere for The Overnight (which I am looking forward to for many reasons). I have seen photos of Mark Duplass from this Sundance wearing a Henley in three different colors and it is a signature piece I am all for. They aren’t just for the guys on the CW.

Cobie SmuldersThis Coach sweater caught my eye back when I wrote a Robyn sweater wish list (pausing to take a moment to wonder once again where Robyn has gone) and now a Robin of a different spelling and show is wearing it. Cobie Smulders looks casual cool at her portrait session for Unexpected.

Keri Russell heelsThis might not be the best kind of footwear for the weather, but snow or not I would find it a challenge to walk in any stilettos. Luckily, Keri Russell is much more coordinated in this department as she heads to the Today Show and this is a super stylish (if not a little chilly) outfit. Very into the coat draped over the shoulders look and the color of this outerwear. Also eyeing up the divine floral Victoria Beckham skirt.

Maisie Williams EW partyThis week Maisie Williams championed dresses with pockets (which are my favorite kind of dresses) and at the Entertainment Weekly pre-SAG bash she wore another very cute pocketed ensemble in Reem Juan.

IMG_1224Bust is on a roll with putting ladies we love on the cover (and this is one reason why I am a subscriber) and now Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are in the spotlight. The editorial has a Thelma & Louise theme and if you were wondering then yes I am still laughing about this week’s episode.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

29 Jan

Welcome to this week’s edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes and it is a mixture of more awards shenanigans mixed in with set antics.

 

Mark Ruffalo couldn’t attend the SAG awards but I applaud his choice of location and pajamas upon hearing the news he had won for The Normal Heart. I love red carpet fashion (as you can probably tell) and yet I would love to see a bed wear approach more often.

Reminding everyone to watch the show by sharing this very cute photo of the Girls ladies is Allison Williams. This doesn’t reflect the emotional state of the characters at the moment, but maybe by the end of the season at least one of them will feel either professionally or personally fulfilled. Maybe.

Sundance Film Festival “Power of Story: Serious Ladies” Panel (Full Video)

27 Jan

The Sundance Film Festival is in full swing and at the weekend this fascinating panel featuring Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham, Jenji Kohan and Kristen Wiig with New Yorker TV critic Emily Nussbaum moderating took place and they discussed their work within the current television and film climate.

Sundance panelThis is the kind of panel that I would love to see live or just go to a bar with these amazing women; this isn’t quite the dream hangout but hey I am so happy to see the Sundance Film Festival YouTube channel sharing the whole chat.

Topics covered include all the lazy gender specific questions that get thrown at them as writers who happen to be women, opportunities on TV, working with men who are feminists and using humor as a tool for debate. Likability vs. relatability – this is Emily Nussbaum’s essay on the topic – comes up as well as the idea that some viewers have trouble separating their character from who they actually are.

Romantic comedies and the recent attempts at this genre on film and TV including The Mindy Project get referenced and what kind of rom-coms they like. The all important “What next?” when a couple gets together is also mentioned and adding to ‘this panel is pretty much my everything’ feelings Jenji Kohan then cites You’re the Worst. This is further fueled by a sex scene question that stems from this episode of The Comeback.

And amazing Sundance style from all panelists. Jenji Kohan’s boots are next level. Excellent knitwear across the board. Plus Kristen Wiig further endears herself to me by revealing herself to be a spiller. Spiller solidarity.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

24 Jan

January isn’t just a month of award season shindigs; no it’s also the time to see what films might feature in the next award season as many filmmakers and actors flock to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. The red carpet here is less floor length gown and more tights and boots, which to be honest is more my speed. This week’s Out of the Box is looking at the winter fashion on display as well as the Elle magazine Women in TV celebration that took place in LA on Wednesday featuring some of the cover stars.

Elisabeth Moss SundanceElisabeth Moss has been killing it on the red carpet, wowing at the recent Golden Globe Awards and now wearing pretty much ideal outfit at the Sundance premiere for “The One I Love.” Tights, super cute ankle boots and a winter floral dress are a winning Sundance combination and the film has been well received (also starring Mark Duplass and Ted Danson). This is definitely the best haircut that Moss has had – yay short hair – and the dash of pink lipstick adds a pop of color to this look.

Elijah Wood Sundance 2014We love a good pea coat here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and Elijah Wood is rocking a classic navy blue at a Game of Thrones Sundance soiree (Big Boi from Outkast hosted). This outfit is both stylish and functional and no one pulls off the sweater/shirt combo as well as the diminutive star.

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson SundanceDiane Kruger laughs in the face of the freezing cold weather in a Ports 1961 creation and it’s all about the layering; belted tweed waistcoat, black jeans, boots, collarless white shirt and a stunning camel coat draped over her shoulders. The Chanel purse and Joshua Jackson add that little something extra to this winter warming appearance. It’s the perfect amount of Sundance chic without looking too try.

Zooey Deschanel and Mindy KalingMoving on to warmer climates with Zooey Deschanel and Mindy Kaling at the Elle magazine “Women in TV” celebration (they’re both cover stars). Deschanel is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress and while I’m not in love with the sheer sleeves, the polka dots instantly cancels this out. Kaling’s pink lip color is on trend and the black Badgley Mischka frock looks really great on her.

Uzo AdubaI finally started Orange is the New Black this week (I know) and after two episodes I’m totally all in. The cast feature in the Elle ‘Women in TV’ issue and Uzo Aduba looks fantastic in a super feminine lace frock at the event celebrating this publication.
