Reunited. #Emmys #fnl #blurry

A post shared by connie britton (@conniebritton) on

 

I’ve said this many times before, but out of all the cast reunions the Friday Night Lights ones give me the most feeeeeeelings. This is ultimate.

 

Stranger Things kids are in big demand and the height difference here just made me laugh a lot.

 

I also appreciate the fact that actors will freak out over other actors. Also still so here for Henry Jennings in a turtleneck.

 

Chris Geere also demonstrating good internal freak out here.

And who wouldn’t be thrilled to meet this handsome chap. Good bow tie work.

 

Emmy weekend on Instagram is pretty much a series of these kinds of pictures. This one makes me so happy.

Maisie Williams didn’t win, but she did get an edible Emmy. Sounds pretty great to me.

 

Lots of getting ready Emmy stories including Keri Russell’s make-up routine. Her eyebrows in this shot are giving me inspiration for the big day on Saturday.

 

Yara Shahidi was one of our best dressed over the weekend and she switched things up after the awards giving a detailed photo diary of her Emmy night for Elle.

 

Constance Zimmer got a bold blunt bob on Emmy day and it looks fabulous against her super pink frock.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

7 Sep

Instagram delivers on the TV style front, film festival glamour and on set singing this week. Plus find out some intimate You’re the Worst information and the usual amount of sweater and lipstick coveting.

 

The Leftovers is still shooting its final season out in Australia and I am glad to see Justin Theroux will be sporting his beard throughout. Liv Tyler captures him here working the leopard print in the hair and makeup trailer.

It has been a bit of a Leftovers watching week as I got the second season for my birthday and I wrote about Kevin’s karaoke here.

 

The kids from Stranger Things crushed their appearance on The Tonight Show and Questlove captures some of the backstage madness in this group selfie.

 

Still no details about who Matthew Rhys is playing on Girls but here he is shooting a scene with Lena Dunham, beard and all.

Spikes too and I’m not sure if this costume or Taraji P. Henson’s own collection. Either way they look terrifying and incredible in equal measure.

Everyday is awards season #emmysfittings

A post shared by Ilaria Urbinati (@ilariaurbinati) on

 

The search for the perfect Emmy dress continues and I wonder if we will see any of these on the red carpet come September 18.

 

I can only see half this sweater, but I know I love it.

 

You’re the Worst returned last week with a fabulous episode and the cast took over the Backstage Instagram. There’s plenty of behind the scenes videos including Chris Geere showing off a modesty pouch/cock sock. He definitely had to wear one in the season premiere.

 

Standard lipstick and sunglasses envy.

 

Chris Geere was also understandably excited to make his talk show debut on The Late Show.

 

One of my favorite costume designers with one of my favorite actresses. Looking forward to seeing what this pairing brings.

 

Now for one of my makeup artist faves with another Orange is the New Black stars and this series of photos of Natasha Lyonne are fantastic.

 

The iZombie set continues to deliver on the fun and the songs.

 

Greg Williams delivers once again on intimate photographs from the Venice Film Festival and here are a few of my favorites. Starting with Jake getting ready, just because.

 

Getting up close with super couple Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. Luckily this dress doesn’t require some awkward lying down.

 

When in Venice you’ve got to have a boat shot. For more from Greg Williams check out his portraits from the festival at Vanity Fair.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 Jul

The holiday weekend means plenty of patriotic style and a whole lot of sunshine. Plus the Orange is the New Black cast head to Canada, some exits and anticipated returning shows from the Instagram TV highlights.

 

Jessica Williams has left The Daily Show and I am so excited for what she will do next. Williams’ podcast 2 Dope Queens with Phoebe Robinson got me through an emotionally tough train ride home at the end of last week; making me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry so I am extra grateful for that. Plus this photo from the Jon Stewart era is amazing.

 

Makeup artist Tina Turnbow captured Keri Russell getting ready for her Today Show appearance where she wore a very cool floral pussy bow blouse and talked her new movie, The Americans and Spy Baby.

Thank you, #TorontoPride.

A post shared by Samira Wiley (@whododatlikedat) on

 

Last week the OITNB cast celebrated New York Pride and now they have ventured up to Toronto for the Pride parade that took place on Sunday (July 3). Samira Wiley has another really fantastic custom Milly top that I am coveting hard.

 

More OITNB Toronto Pride partying.

 

Keeping on the OITNB track here is a season 4 behind the scenes shot and this one is giving me all the feelings.

By now you have probably seen many photos from the annual Taylor Swift Fourth of July Squad weekend and I’m going to keep on the OITNB theme with this one of Uzo Aduba. Yes that water slide does look amazing. Yes I love this Vulture post on the whole thing which harks back to their amazing Gossip Girl recaps.

Happy 4th! ✌️🇺🇸

A post shared by Kirsten Dunst (@kirstendunst) on

 

For all your July 4th patriotic clothing needs look no further than the amazing Dick from 1999 starring Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams. This was my dream teen lady pairing and I heart this movie hard.

Jaws in a pool

A post shared by Aya Cash (@maybeayacash) on

 

Jaws is the ultimate Forth of July movie (sorry Independence Day) and Aya Cash’s photo of this very on point tat is very cool.

 

More UnREAL off camera joy and Jeffery Bowyer-Chapman and Denée Chapman are enjoying a very crowded looking Brooklyn park while celebrating the holiday weekend.

 

More from the UnREAL cast and I love how much Constance Zimmer loves this bag of popcorn.

 

If you miss The Office well then Angela Kinsey has a treat for you as she has posted a bunch of old photos from the set including that time in season 1 when Amy Adams guest starred.

 

Very cute iZombie co-star hangouts with some bonus dog pals.

 

I am very excited about this and in non shocking news Aubrey Plaza is wearing a dress which is giving me full heart eyes.

Mr Robot returns a week today (!) and I hope we get to see a lot more of all three ladies in season 2. Please and thank you.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

4 Mar

The final hurrah of award season is here with a look at the best of the Vanity Fair party where quite a few dresses were better than the ones worn to the actual Oscar ceremony. Plus funky street style, Paris Fashion Week and talk show appearance outfit joy.Alicia VikanderNow this is what I am talking about and while I liked Alicia Vikander’s Oscar dress it just didn’t have the all heart eyes emoji factor. If she had worn this super sexy sequin Louis Vuitton dress first there might have been declarations of it not bringing the woah factor, but I think my jaw would have been on the floor. It has all the cool vibes that Vikander normally brings with the best Oscar after party accessory. Elizabeth BanksElizabeth Banks knows how to bring it and once again the reaction I had to this dress was what was missing from most of the overall red carpet. Maybe she should have been at the awards ceremony too. A caped jumpsuit isn’t the easiest of looks to pull off, but Banks does just that in Ralph and Russo. If I didn’t already have a strong idea of what I want to wear to my wedding this year then this would provide amazing inspiration.Mindy KalingThe next three looks are also upgrades from what was worn on the Oscar red carpet and Mindy Kaling stuck to her black dress with a twist theme switching Elizabeth Kennedy for custom Salvador Perez. Perez as we have mentioned on a number of occasions is the Mindy Project costume designer and his creations highlight everything amazing about Kaling’s figure. I did also love Mindy’s day after the Oscars outfit.Priyanka ChopraPriyanka Chopra’s crystal embellished Jenny Packham ensemble hits all the right sparkle spots and this looks like the kind of outfit which might be worn for a super dramatic late ’70s soap opera moment; I am so here for that.Sophie TurnerWearing Galvan for both the Oscars and the after party and Sophie Turner’s second outfit is the standout thanks its bold color. The very cool thing about both gowns is they are made from sustainable materials to promote socially responsible fashionPatricia ClarksonThere is something so soothing about Patricia Clarkson and she is always someone I am very happy to see both on screen and the red carpet. Plunging floral embroidered Alberta Ferretti and a strong red lip is an instant yes. Kirsten DunstSpring is here! And yes it did snow this week, but the sun is shining now and Kirsten Dunst’s yellow floral frock is making me forget that I am still wearing an outfit entirely made up of various chunky knits.Kate Mara H&M PFWOn the flip side I’m still aware of just how cold it still is and Kate Mara’s summer dress getting hidden by a fabulous coat at the H&M Paris Fashion Week show makes so much sense to me right now. And now for a dress that straddles the winter/summer divide and Keri Russell is crushing it with her maternity style in Valentino on Late Night with Seth Meyers this week. In the interview they discussed The Americans (which is back in just over a week!), going and buying coffee while in costume, slapping people and Felicity. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer also appeared on this episode in what is probably my dream talk show booking (watch the whole episode here).

Thanks to makeup artist Tina Turnbow we have a closer look at not only the exquisite floral detail of the dress and those amazing earrings, but also the striking purple eyes which is giving me flashbacks to this and one of my own personal favorite eyeliners (also thanks to Turnbow).

So many fall shows are on the horizon and there are plenty of countdowns to premiere dates on Instagram from a variety of sets and editing bays including Jane the VirginEmpireThe Mindy Project and Black-ish.

Working mirrored sunglasses in a way I could only dream of is Taraji P. Henson.

 

And what it might look like if Empire was on cable.

 

When branded freebies from your own show come in very useful. Yes I would very much like my own trash juice receptacle.

 

Black-ish is on my never ending catch up list and this clip alone is enough to bump it up the list into a prime spot.

My resting face

A post shared by @ abbijacobson on

 

A much needed dose of Broad City and the best kind of resting face.

 

In this week’s Orange is the New Black installment something is going down in the kitchen.

 

Mindy Kaling’s Saturday night premiere editing shows off more Bedhead pajama treats on a variety of screens.

 

Playing House is pure lady friendship happiness and Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham blew the first whistle at the Los Angeles Derby Dolls bout last weekend. Here they are clutching their whistles and Parham’s Johnny Depp tee (from Clashist) is a good reminder of his pre-Pirates persona.

 

Eye makeup goals from Tina Turnbow with The Affair’s Julia Goldani Telles showing off ultimate wings.

 

Best birthday present food truck. Don’t spill any sauce down your costume (because that is definitely something I would do).

 

A new hair color and a stunning blue Monique Lhuillier gown for Elisabeth Moss. Excelled lipstick too.

 

Get the Look: Keri Russell’s Smoky Purple Eyes

10 Jul

One of the first posts I wrote on TV Ate My Wardrobe bemoaned the lack of a central database like IMDb for makeup (and especially lipstick) used on the red carpet and in shows/movies. A site like this is still a pipe dream, but luckily there are some in this profession who reveal which products they use on Twitter and one such artist is Tina Turnbow. Turnbow is Keri Russell’s regular makeup artist and she introduced me to the colorful Sephora eye pencils (which I stocked up on recently) and as I tend to stick to a very minimal routine, I am always glad to inject something new and colorful into this pretty safe palette.

Keri Russell eyesStep up Keri Russell at the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes premiere in New York this week as she sizzles in the hot summer weather in a super funky all black ensemble. Balancing smoky eyes with a light pink lip color adds to this look and to give Russell’s eyes an extra kick Turnbow uses an Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in VICE.

Vice Urban Decay

These pencils are available in a range of colors and cost $20. For a look at the complete range head here.

Keri Russell DOTPOTAAnd here’s the full look and Russell exudes super cool in a sheer lace top, jeans (not so sure about the extra material flap) and black mules. Russell’s red carpet style tends to stick to effortless chic and this continues this trend.

Get the Look: Keri Russell’s Electric Blue Eyes

19 Nov

Recently it’s all been about Keri Russell in 1998 thanks to my recent Felicity venture over at This Was TV so a recent PaleyFest panel about The Americans escaped my radar (I would make a terrible spy). The Americans has been one of my favorite new shows of 2013 (there will be more on this next month as December is the official month of list making) and the forthcoming second season that is set to air in January is highly anticipated – I really miss the wigs.

At this panel Russell is a far cry from the chunky knit sweater wearing Felicity that I’ve been watching for the past month and she looks super funky in a metallic blue blazer and leather pants. This is definitely more on the Elizabeth Jennings (updated to this decade of course) than Ms. Porter.

Paleyfest The AmericansOne of Keri Russell’s defining style points is her hair (and I’m still on season 1 so the chopping hasn’t occurred yet) and at this event she has gone for the uncoiffed, tousled look. Adding a bit of flare is the hint of electric blue on Russell’s eyes which complements the jacket without coming across as too matchy matchy.

Keri Russell electric blue eyesIn this close up shot you can see how powerful this hint of blue is and in the recent Hollywood Reporter Beauty Issue, Russell appears alongside her makeup artist Tina Turnbow and the spontaneity of this moment is discussed. It was a last minute decision to go for something this bold and Turnbow ran off to Sephora to pick out a color to make Russell’s eyes pop in this outfit. The eye pencil that she chose is called “My Boyfriend’s Jeans” and it’s not going to break the bank at $9.

My boyfriend's jeans eye pencilAs it gets nearer to the holiday season it’s when I start to experiment with bolder eye color as I tend to wear pastel shades in the summer. At this time of year I don’t feel so self-conscious going for smokey or sparkly eyes and my fear of looking like a clown subsides a little. In the past I have spoken about the idea of having an IMDB like database for makeup that appears in movies, TV shows or public appearances and while that’s not come to fruition yet, I’m glad to see a site/magazine like The Hollywood Reporter not only dedicate an annual issue to beauty/style, but also launch a sister site called Pret-a-Reporter. It’s refreshing to find out more about the talented folk who work behind the scenes giving actresses their camera ready look.

While we don’t all have a makeup artist on hand, being able to get tips and product suggestions that aren’t ridiculously expensive is something I appreciate as I still feel like a makeup novice even at 31. Twitter and Instagram mean that makeup artists can show off their skills and offer advice; their work can be celebrated in a way that has been previously lacking.
