Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Jun

The pattern theme continues much to my delight and Look of the Week is awash once again with some bold ensembles. It’s summer so this makes total sense.

Plenty of premieres, more awards and July issues of magazines continue to wow. September, you have a lot to live up to.

For some sporty and sparkly chic check out style crush Tatiana Maslany and my article on the new (and wonderful) Netflix series GLOW.At the BET Awards Issa Rae is bold stripe delight in Balmain pairing a blazer with short shorts and sandals. Everything about this look is a dream and Rae tops it off with the perfect pink lipstick.And while we’re on the subject of Issa Rae, here is the season 2 promo poster for Insecure and the premiere date is less than a month away! Never has a poster made me want to go for a swim more than this. Excellent swimsuit choice too.The third week in a row for Zendaya as the Spider-Man: Homecoming promo tour continues. So far there has been a stunning Vogue cover, putting a bird on it and now mixing fun and sophistication in stripes and ruffled Altuzarra.

A velvet trench doesn’t really scream the month of June, but just know I am very much coveting Karen Gillan’s Self Portrait coat dress. This week’s florals come from Jenny Slate at the Despicable Me LA premiere in Alice McCall. The heavy print and fringe makes this dress feel a little rug-adjacent, but the slightly sheer element gives it a much lighter look. Great gold sandals too.At the Younger season 4 premiere, Sutton Foster looks like she came straight from rom-com set in the ’80s in polka dot Saloni. This is of course a compliment of the highest order.In ‘July gives great cover’ news; bow down to Serena Williams and Vanity Fair. After letting my subscription lapse a few months ago, VF is making a great play to get me to sign back up again with two excellent cover stories in a row. 

The interview goes into detail about how Serena and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian got together and what Serena did when she found out she was pregnant just before the Australian Open kicked off. A tournament she won without dropping a single set. It is a celebration of all things Serena and I cannot wait to pick up this magazine. In just over two weeks, Game of Thrones returns so get ready for TV talk to be dominated by this juggernaut. First up a super fun Time cover story and design that mixes religious iconography with Pop Art colors and Old Hollywood; you can read all about photographer Miles Aldridge’s concept here. There’s also a little Twin Peaks and my dream to now have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau playing the prime suspect in an Agatha Christie adaptation.

Sophie Turner in Gucci (currently crushing it as the brand of the moment) is my favorite of the portraits in a shot that looks like a fucked up and fashionable fairy tale.

Also over at Vanity Fair they picked out two important details from the piece and the first one is something I cannot wait to see in the new season.Preacher is back and the first two episodes are super fun. Plus Tulip is once again a major TV style crush mixing feminine summer dresses with edgy leather. Ruth Negga has been a regular presence here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and her cover/editorial for Town & Country is another style hit including the above dreamy shot of Negga in Fendi. In the piece Negga talks about how much she loves books and her favorite show growing up was My So-Called Life.

As if I needed another reason to think we could be besties, on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Negga talked about how much she loves Grease 2, which is also my favorite of the Grease movies. So much so that I even managed to slip a reference to it in this Wonder Woman essay I wrote for Elle.

All my fave actresses talk about Grease 2 on The Tonight Show.

Best of the 2017 Tony Awards Red Carpet

12 Jun

Time for the Tony Awards or the final letter you need to get to spell out EGOT. It was a particularly hot day in NYC yesterday and probably not the best weather occasion for tuxedos and long heavy gowns. But the show must go on (I’m sorry) and the red carpet with its rose filled living wall did not disappoint.

For the full winners list head here.Last year Cynthia Erivo won for The Color Purple and she returns looking triumphant in a plunging custom beaded CG gown. This was Cobie Smulders first Tony Awards and she knocks it out of the park (or theater) in a stunning print Schiaparelli that mixes patterns while giving a fresh take on florals.Chrissy Teigen is giving me so many Art Deco feelings in custom Pamella Roland and in personal news I will be attempting to make some things from her cookbook this week.

Also, John Legend is working a larger bow tie and is now only an Emmy away from an EGOT after last night.This is fucking fabulous. Rachel Bloom hanging out with Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole; living her best life.Sutton Foster is also giving great plunging beaded black gown in Christian Siriano and the rose wall really is the best dramatic backdrop.It is impossible for me to see Mary Beth Peil and not think of both Jackie Florrick and Grams; this might be the Tonys and yet I will always view it through the lens of TV, because I am the worst. And she looks amazing here.

If only this was the year Michelle Williams was nominated because that would be the ultimate Dawson’s Creek reunion. Wearing what looks like the most comfortable dress is Jenna Lyons in snake print Voutsa x Paul Marlowe and I am enthusiastic about lounge wear adjacent formal attireDavid Oyelowo is always a GQMF and at the Tonys this is no different. Not only is his suit/pocket square game strong, but those embroidered slippers take it to the next level. Oh, Hello lands on Netflix tomorrow (Tuesday 13) and while I am far from a Broadway expert, watching this show while on honeymoon in New York last September is the most fun I have ever had in a theater. Safe to say I am looking forward to seeing it again and not being jet lagged this time.

Also John Mulaney and Nick Kroll look rather dashing, but I am missing their particular brand of Gil and George style. Elijah and Dorota: the spinoff we not only deserve, but also need.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

21 Oct

September might be the month where everything happens, but October is also delivering on the style front. From fancy events to magazine covers and promoting movies I want to see; this week’s “Out of the Box” is a whole lot of fun with a dash of photos that make me speechless.cynthia-erivoAt the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Hearts Awards (click here for more on this charity) there was a whole lot of Michael Kors on display (the charity is based in his SoHo building) and standout is Cynthia Erivo in a fantastic patterned number. Great lipstick and shoe choice for this look.cush-jumboCush Jumbo is a longtime Michael Kors aficionado and this is another hit striking a cute/sophisticated balance. I am also very excited for The Good Wife spinoff for costume and all the Diane/Lucca reasons. Plus Sarah Steele is coming back! sutton-fosterIt is hard to look at Sutton Foster’s ensemble at not sing “Gold” by Spandau Ballet and this is shiny delight. gugu-mbatha-rawOne final dress highlight from this year’s London Film Festival and Gugu Mbatha-Raw serves up major in the rain drama with her big umbrella, a beautiful plunging Burberry gown and a fantastic berry lip color.anna-campGood Girls Revolt lands on Amazon next Friday and like I don’t have enough shows to catch up on still (seriously, don’t go away at the end of September). For costuming, story and cast reasons I am looking forward to this and Anna Camp looks great in this very Giambattista Valli cute dress at the premiere. Excellent detail to warm my collar loving heart.jake-and-jonAt a Hillary Clinton fundraiser event in New York a whole lot of handsome took to the stage and when can we get a movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jon Hamm? Now would be great. Please and thank you. Preferably a comedy, but that is not a dealbreaker.michelle-obamaThe first of three magazine covers that delivered on every level this week and this T Magazine dedication to Michelle Obama was pretty much 50% of what was on my Instagram feed on Monday. Every single time it popped up it still had the same impact and that is one of pure wonder. Such great simple and effective styling; those triangle earrings are making me wish I had pierced ears.

Michelle Obama also killed it at her final state dinner and I am so sad this is almost over.emma-stoneWhen this cover of Vogue first popped up on my Twitter TL on Friday afternoon my jaw hit the floor; this is the best cover Vogue has done in a long, long time (Teen Vogue you are still crushing it on the cover front). It manages to be a different approach for Emma Stone – love the pixie – while still managing to actually look like her. I am a sucker for all things stripes and I love this cover so much that I’m even fine with the whole cropped element. ruth-neggaThe November Vogue is also crushing it inside the magazine with a series of stunning photos of Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton promoting their new movie Loving. Negga’s direct stare is disarming in the best possible way and the styling of this shoot is excellent.
thr-ruth-neggaAlso giving great face and style as part of The Hollywood Reporter cover story this week. And if this dress looks familiar it is because the pussy bow version was worn by Keri Russell on The Today Show a few months ago.

Best of the 2014 Tony Awards Red Carpet

9 Jun

The Tony Awards were held last night and as I just saw my first musical this weekend (no really) this award show couldn’t come at a better time (I saw Cabaret and it was amazing, even if it didn’t win anything). As I’ve just got back from vacation this is a lot less in-depth than usual, but there is still plenty to discuss as the red carpet is awash with amazing gowns (and tuxedos).

photo1 (2)Leighton Meester looks stunning in ivory Antonio Berardi and this almost makes up for the lack of Seth Cohen/Blair Waldorf wedding photos as she is accompanied by husband Adam Brody.

photo6Now for something vibrant from Sutton Foster in a fuschia Reem Acra.

photo7Audra McDonald won last night (and it’s a record sixth win) for her performance in Lady Day and she also had an impact on the red carpet in a sea of black and white gowns. This look is maybe missing a necklace, but I really love the relaxed strapless Escada frock.

photo8Speaking of black and white dresses with Lucy Liu looking fabulous in Vivienne Westwood.

photo2Feathers can be hard to pull off and it helps that Maggie Gyllenhaal has the whole boho look down (no pun intended) and this Dolce & Gabbana is perfect for her.

Judith LightI adore Judith Light and the long sleeve Randi Rahm gown she wore looks fabulous on her.

photo5Another fantastic black dress with Vera Farmiga in Stella McCartney. This time matching her hair waves to her dress ones.

photo10This is a fun/sexy take on pattern with Anika Noni Rose wearing a leopard print Badgley Mischka.

photo9This is from backstage and Tina Fey is killing it in a midnight blue with gold print Oscar de la Renta gown.

photo4The perfect way to end this post is with Matt Bomer looking pretty damn perfect. Swoon.
