Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Jan

Coats, coats, coats are on the “Out of the Box” menu as Sundance continues and Paris Fashion Week also delivers in the outerwear department. Currently I am cocooned in knitwear so anything intended for a cold climate is a welcome sight. And with the winter weather this week comes a whole variety of black attire; both classic and somber in places. This makes sense, all things considered. kirsten-dunstGreat coat, sunglasses and red lipstick (and engagement ring, which can be seen here) from Kirsten Dunst at the Dior show on Monday during Paris Fashion Week. It might be cheesy to use the word chic here, but eh I’m gonna dive into the fromage as she looks chic af. rami-malekIn Paris a few days earlier at the Dior Homme Menswear show new face of Dior Rami Malek also gave great coat. Malek is one of the guys who features most on these pages because of his style and this brand pairing makes so much sense. Rami also crushes the patterned sweater/shirt look.abbi-and-taviI said there would be more Sundance coats and at the Vulture Sundance Spot Abbi Jacobson and Tavi Gevinson dropped by in some great outerwear while promoting Person to Person. Long and slightly oversized coats have been on trend this year and it is a great mix of effortless with smart. Gevinson’s scarf game is also top notch.

And over at Elle and Bustle they have interviews with Jacobson (Bustle gets Gevinson too) that are very relevant to my interests including how Broad City will address this current political climate.

Starting with his much needed moment of comic relief from “Hack into Broad City” from last Friday.issa-raeThe coats they keep on coming and at the ‘Power Of Story: Art Of Episodic Storytelling’ panel Issa Rae also sartorially delivers on the outerwear with plaid crossed with what looks like the inside of a beehive.hannah-simoneHannah Simone goes classic at the Band Aid premiere in Alice + Olivia off the shoulder dress. I’m excited for Band Aid and not just because it makes me instantly think of Almost Famous and it was written/directed by Simone’s New Girl co-star Zoe Lister Jones with an entirely female crew. Plus it sounds like it is a lot of fun, which is always welcome.zoe-lister-jonesZoe Lister Jones also stars in her directorial debut and she stopped by the IMDb studio in an ensemble which continues to add to my theory that Sundance has my ideal wardrobe. Another black dress but getting an oomph of color with a bold red collar. Also black patent shoes that give me so much envy as I was never allowed this style when I was a kid. The reason; I would scuff them and considering the state of all my shoes, my mother was right. But I can but dream.connie-brittonA black turtleneck sweater dress is another classic closet must have and Connie Britton is all over this while promoting Cast Change. Manicure and earrings are also fabulous.chloe-sevingyContinuing her patterned dresses with a late ’60s/early ’70s vibe and Chloë Sevigney adds a bit of sequin sparkle to the Beatriz At Dinner premiere and I love everything about this.morgan-saylorMorgan Saylor is flying into outer space in very cute Miu Miu at the Novitiate premiere and this is another case where I get to sing the praises of black tights. Although I do worry her arms are cold. I have a black pair of shoes very much like the burgundy ones Saylor is wearing and now I am coveting this color too. Bonus lipstick and manicure points.armie-hammerOne of the most talked about movies coming out of Sundance this year is Call Me By My Name and it is one love story that I cannot wait to see. Star Armie Hammer is all slinged up due to a torn pectoral muscle and he’s ticking all the sweater boxes in fuzzy stripes.naomie-harrisNow for something more formal in the black dress department with Naomie Harris at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards in Dior that looks super cozy (if not a little chilly in the arm department). Adding a splash of pink and gold makes this so much more than just a safe choice. And this is in part why Harris graces these pages so often; there’s always something that stands out.kelly-and-ewanFull ’90s nostalgia feelings right down to Ewan McGregor’s Adidas trainers and Kelly Macdonald’s silk dress at the Trainspotting T2 premire. Great lipstick choice from Macdonald too.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

4 May

Continuing on from yesterday’s Met Gala highlights we’ve got some getting ready and Gala hangout offerings. Plus more from the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and the Girls ladies get back to work for their final season.

What a night! #metgala #zacposen #clairedanes Thank you to my incredible team and #Atelier! #metgala2016

A post shared by Zac Posen (@zacposen) on

 

Still the dress moment of the evening and it is worth seeing Claire Danes in all her glowing glory once again.

 

And here it is in the early stages.

A rare photograph of three female homosapiens in the bathroom at the <MET BALL 2016>

A post shared by ≠GWEELOS≠ (@willowsmith) on

 

I have so many questions about the bathroom situation considering the size/constricted nature of some of the gowns (going short seems like a wise choice) and as somehow who has talked about how much they love the use of bathrooms particularly in teen shows, I am so here for this.

As with this Lady Gaga in the background facial expression I am also obsessed with what Jemima Kirke is thinking in this moment.

On the way to my first #MetGala. Here I go! @giambattistapr

A post shared by Danai Gurira (@danaigurira) on

 

This was another favorite look of the night and Danai Gurira is a spectacular force on the red carpet, as Michonne on The Walking Dead and as a writer. There is another reason for Gurira to celebrate this week as her play Eclipsed received six Tony nominations including writing and for best play.

 

One thing I love about Instagram and fashion posts is the detail you get to appreciate that wouldn’t normally come across in red carpet shots. Case in point the parts of SJP’s Hamilton inspired look.

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.

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.

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.

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.
