Best of the Emmys 2017 Style: Bold Color and Shimmer

18 Sep

Welcome to the second part of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s Emmy coverage and this is brought to you on four hours sleep and a whole lot of Diet Coke (#notspon).

For all things awards, couples, feathers and more head here. In this post we will be lavishing praise on the colorful and metallic looks of the night. AKA my favorite kind of award show sartorial choices.Pleats make for the best all drama posing and Tessa Thompson in rainbow Rosie Assoulin is quite possibly the best look of the entire night. There’s a bonus ’70s feeling about all of this and I am so ready for the Thor press tour.Viola Davis always gives great vibrant color—it was pink in 2016—and this year’s Emmys are no different. A tangerine dream in custom Zac Posen. One of the show highlights was Tituss Burgess in the Westworld sketch and also this jacket is beyond fantastic.Again the Stranger Things teens continue to show most the adult dudes how it is done; wearing designers from Prada to Ted Baker and Balmain. Getting the edge in the best dressed here is Caleb McLaughlin in a purple brocade Garçon Couture jacket. Nicole Kidman won big on the night in more ways than one as she picked up for Best Actress in a mini-series and as producer on Big Little Lies. She was also wearing maybe her best look of a very busy 2017 in red Calvin Klein by Appointment. Also favoring crimson is Issa Rae in custom Vera Wang; I’m not wild about the sleeves but from the back this dress is divine.If you are a regular watched of Gina Rodriguez’s Instagram Stories then you have probably seen her use a pull up bar on her door frame. It took her a few attempts, but she can now work it like a pro and she even did so in this super sexy Naeem Khan frock. And along with Busy Philipps, she very much makes me want to exercise more.Yara Shahidi once again does something different and you can never predict what red carpet direction she will opt for. This time she goes ethereal in Prada.Last year Sarah Paulson wowed in green sequined Prada and she’s gone the sparkly route again in Carolina Herrera. It doesn’t quite deliver the same knockout levels, but I do love the drama of the puffed out sleeves. For my fave silver sequins of the night look no further than Anna Chlumsky in custom Sachin & Babi.

Chlumsky also gave the best reaction to the worst moment and her very ’90s styling on Halt and Catch Fire is every level flashback inducing.Mixing florals and metallics is Queen Regina King in a plunging Galia Lahav Couture gown and those DVANI diamond starburst earrings are making me wish I had pierced ears.Another flaming hot Naeem Khan dress and Laverne Cox is a dripped in silver delight.Kiernan Shipka has been coming to the Emmys since 2010 and this is an instant way to feel old—as pointed out with this helpful visual from Jarett Wieselmen. This Miu Miu gown is simple, elegant and very pretty.Another teen hitting all the right sartorial notes is Millie Bobby Brown in Calvin Klein by Appointment. This gives off a princess vibe without feeling too saccharine.Millennial pink for Samira Wiley in custom Christian Siriano and I love the cut of this gown.Another very different ladysuit from Evan Rachel Wood in striking wide-legged Jeremy Scott for Moschino. She looks like a fabulous ringmaster.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

31 Jul

Summer TCA is here and this means whole host of panel attire – think smart/casual or what you might wear for a nice lunch date – and animated sitting down shots. Plus a red carpet outfit that has me all excited for an event I am going to at the weekend.

Uzo Aduba and Taylor SchillingDay 1 was all Netflix including some of the Orange is the New Black ladies and it is Uzo Aduba’s colorful L.K. Bennett print frock which is the panel standout. Taylor Schilling’s brown pants and tri-color blue top is actually a 3.1 Phillip Lim jumpsuit (sitting down makes it hard to tell) and it is relaxed cool. Nicholas Kirkwood T-bar pumps add a touch of glam to her look.

Natasha Lyonne and Selenis LeyvaI miss you Nicky! Natasha Lyonne and Selenis Leyva are all about the LBD and fantastic shoes.

OITNB TCAAnd here is a wide shot of the cast in attendance showing the range of style choices and my other favorite pairing with Lea DeLaria and Taryn Manning sitting on the far right.

Kimmy Schmidt TCAThe costuming on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a color wheel explosion and Titus Burgess is bringing it in a pink shirt and bow tie. He is indeed flawless. Teal is a great choice for Ellie Kemper and Tina Fey’s pants and sleeveless blouse are perfect TCA threads. Would also look really great at the office.

The Leftovers TCASeason 1 of The Leftovers is messy in places, but the stuff that is really great is really great and this is why I am so excited for October 4 when the show returns. At the TCA panel returning cast members Justin Theroux and the devastatingly good Carrie Coon were joined by new regular Regina King (I am still sad about Southland’s cancellation) and both ladies look delightful in such bold colors. Theroux scrubs up rather nicely too in a stripe short sleeve Henley.

Carrie CoonAnd a closer look at the texture of Carrie Coon’s dress. Now this is the kind of sheer elements I like and one occasion where nude sandals are the best choice.

Rebecca FergusonComplicated feelings about jumpsuits aside as this navy wrap Diane von Furstenberg ensemble worn by Rebecca Ferguson at the Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation London premiere is spectacular. As is her performance in the film which I saw yesterday; it is so good to see a woman kicking this much ass and not being the damsel in distress. She gave me all the Sydney Bristow feels. Such a good twist on menswear tailoring (and you know how much I love a lady suit).

Now here comes the personal bit and DVF garments have often graced these pages with the wrap dress being an item I have desired for a long time. I am attending my soon to be brother-in-law’s wedding tomorrow and for the occasion I will be wearing Diane von Furstenberg. There will be a much longer piece to follow because this is probably the most TV Ate My Wardrobe story there is; as you can gather I am very excited about this.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

29 Jul

More shows have gone back to work and so TV Instagram is brimming with behind the scenes sneak peeks. Plus costume treats, reunions aplenty and some fantastic song/dance numbers.

 

It is summer TCA time and things kicked off yesterday with a whole host of Netflix panels including The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And this joyous lip sync moment happened on the plane. It’s not Peeno Noir, but it is just as Flawless (I’ll see myself out).

 

Jenny Slate took over Bust’s Instagram in honor of her amazing cover and what better way to celebrate than with a kitchen dance party.

 

The Mindy Project has found a new home on Hulu for season 4 and here are some of the cast back in action. Beard bonus points are awarded to Jay Duplass.

 

Ultimate #TBT time with one of my favorite actresses (and all important teen hair influencer) in one of my favorite places.

 

The You’re the Worst cast continue to rule TV Instagram with musical treats like this one.

 

And by showing off patterned costume delights like these.

Surprise friendships on Orange is the New Black played a big part in how much I enjoyed season 3 as it not only created new dynamics, but it also added to the emotional impact. Spirituality was also a big story driver and Soso found it hard to connect with anyone and spiraled; Poussey came to her rescue and hopefully this photo indicates that their friendship continues.

 

When Empire returns in September it will be interesting to see who falls in what camp and Jamal could be the most conflicted. Digging Cookie in polka dots.

Well protected on The Flash.

 

The morgue set on Elementary serves another purpose at lunchtime. Well it definitely looks like a decent size space for yoga.

 

Already coveting Watson’s prints and this blouse/dress might even pop up on a future Wish List.

Jane returned to Masters of Sex much to my joy and I cannot wait to see her in all the yellow (including this ensemble).

 

A reunion of a different kind and this is pushing me closer to the Ugly Betty rewatch that I have been contemplating. Adorable.

Looking far happier together than when we last saw them on The Americans are Annet Mahendru and former cellmate Katja Herbers.
