New York Fashion Week, TIFF, shows ending, reunions and other behind the scenes shenanigans on Instagram this week. September continues to deliver.
Friday Night Lights cast hangouts get me every single time. This is no exception.
Now for NYFW and at Opening Ceremony this is a whole lot of comic actors to adore, all wearing fabulous clothes.
More Alia Shawkat and the Rachel Antonoff Betty and Veronica collection was showcased in a super fun and imaginative way, with Shawkat being one of the models.
So many heart eyes at Phoebe Robinson in Tracy Reese at NYFW and I am really looking forward to reading You Can’t Touch My Hair, which is out next month.
All eyes are on Belfast to see which Game of Thrones cast members are heading to Northern Ireland for season 7 and while this bar hang is not a guarantee that Sansa and Arya will reunite any time soon, I can but dream. I am also here for Maisie William’s double drink choice of a cocktail and what looks like a hot beverage.
The month of everything happening continues with the Toronto Film Festival and Hidden Figures is on my most anticipated list (see also La La Land, Manchester by the Sea, Colossal and Jackie). Glen Powell is pretty much the main reason I stuck with Scream Queens and he’s got the best co-star hangouts at TIFF.
Top notch prom posing skills.
Also at TIFF is Uzo Aduba and this is an incredible pre-premiere shot.
So happy that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won a couple of Emmys over the weekend. Expect a lot more Emmy Insta next week.
I’m still confident in saying that BrainDead was my favorite show of the summer and while I am sad it is probably done, the finale kept up the absurd/fun/weird/sexy/amazing costume levels.
Is Liv getting a zombie dog? This is a serious cutie.
Masters of Sex returned this week with a promising start to the season after last year’s messiness. Niecy Nash was a welcome presence and she won’t put up with Bill’s self-pity.
The boots and jeans look works well on Joshua Jackson so thank you, Affair costume department.
Time for the weekly installment of I heart the You’re the Worst team; at work on a Saturday.
And then followed by spending the evening together.
Comic-Con is here! As I’m writing this there are still many panels to go and this is the tip of the Comic-Con style iceberg, which is a whole lot like PaleyFest and TCA in that it varies from super casual cool to the dressier end of the scale.
Today we have both in the menswear department from the open air IMAX world premiere of Star Trek Beyond kicking things off in San Diego this week. There is also a dash of politics and more movie screenings.I really miss Selfie and reading Jon Cho’s comments in this amazing and insightful interview with Vulture about this show only adds to this sense of sadness about its early cancellation:
“Selfie was a chance for me to be centered, confident. There was some kind of stillness to the character that I felt was much more me than any other person I played.”
Henry was also a suits kinda guy and Cho looks great at the Star Trek Beyond premiere in this blue number.Normally I might shake my head at how casual this look is for a premiere of a movie that someone is in, but Idris Elba has the best reason for shorts and sneakers as his suit was lost at the airport. Plus he still manages to crush it and look cool as fuck despite this wardrobe mishap.This week I cleaned out my closet and it was no surprise that stripes were the dominant staple; at the Star Trek Beyond premiere Christian Slater shows that dudes can do this style just as well and my only slight negative note is going sockless with loafers. The iZombie cast are taking a quick break from starting shooting season 3 and have headed to San Diego for Comic-Con and they presented at the MTV Fandom Awards last night (July 21). The split up the front of the dress is having a big revival this year and while I’m still not completely sold on this trend, I do really like the color, texture and floral print of Rose McIver’s frock and it is ideal for this event.
Looking forward to seeing more from the iZombie cast in San Diego and check back for more Comic-Con style coverage over the next few days.Co-stars supporting co-stars in other projects is my fave and Danielle Brooks is on hand at the screening of Uzo Aduba’s new movie Tallulah (which played at Sundance and I am looking forward to seeing). Brooks looks fabulous in another floral dream this week; wearing a Fuzzi frock and ASOS silver pumps and Aduba goes classic in a black dress and strappy shoes. A slightly different spin on the co-stars supporting each other format and Jon Stewart made a much welcome and needed return to late night with a couple of appearances this week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stephen Colbert shared this photo from last night’s show on his Twitter and this brings me so much joy in this bonkers political week/month/year.
Jon’s still working his fantastic post Daily Show beard and clip on ties are dangerous to chest hair and not a great sartorial choice, but everything about the above shot is wonderful. Plus Stephen scrubs up well even when he is poking out the side of his desk.
To watch Jon Stewart’s segment click on the video below and bask in his anger and blanked out swears.
Miss you, Jon.
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.
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.
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 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.
Between Orange is the New Black and “The Battle of the Bastards” there was a lot going on this week on TV and this edition of “Behind the Insta-Scenes” has got you covered on both. Plus we’ve got shows that are currently in productions, ones that have just finished and lots of other fun stuff is on the Instagram highlights menu.
It’s all fun and games in Maureen when things aren’t getting set on fire/people aren’t being stabbed.
A “How to Get Blood out of Your Beard” tutorial is probably needed for the Game of Thrones guys and it is good to see all is crazy in love when the camera stops rolling.
And now for a “Who Wore it Better?” Battle of the Bastards edition (Part 2).
I have a lot of feelings about this new season of Orange is the New Black and I don’t want to say too much for those who have not finished yet, but I am very happy the OITNB cast have been posting photos like the one above. Need this moment of happiness.
And adorable ones like this, which is also from the New York premiere.
Adding to the feelings scale is the Orphan Black season 4 finale and thanks for the flowers Tatiana!
Now for shows currently in production and this bts shot of Justin Theroux from season 3 of The Leftovers. As Theroux points out; no handcuffs (or shirt) necessary.
After recently marathoning my way through the first two seasons of iZombie I’ve still got that post-watch emptiness (see also OITNB) so even though there isn’t a season 3 premiere date yet, it is good to see some of the cast back on iZombie duty.
There are lots of reasons to be excited about this new season of You’re the Worst and one of them is this amazing casting news.
On BrainDead Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Tveit danced together. It was magical. As is this prom style pic.
While a lot of the FNL cast were in Austin for the ATX Television Festival; Aimee Teegarden, Taylor Kitsch, Zach Gilford and Minka Kelly were taking part in the Spartan Race. Another reunion I can get behind. Even with Kitsch’s mustache.
This is from a couple of weeks ago (when I covered the outfits from this event), but somehow I missed it and I’m making up for that now.
Joshua Jackson and Kiernan Shipka doing their best January Jones pose might be my new favorite thing.
The way to get two entries is to quote from Overboard. Always an instant YES in my book/blog.
To be filed under “Things that are Adorable”
The Tony Awards red carpet was awash with color and pattern so it was interesting to see that the rest of this week was so dominated by neutrals and metallics with a dash of florals.
We’ve got the New York Orange is the New Black premiere and a couple of other events featuring some TV Ate My Wardrobe faves.Happy OITNB Day!
Samira Wiley in a classic plunging black jumpsuit – cue reminder that I still need to embrace this trend – and bold berry lip color. I love seeing group shots of this cast because what other show has this much diversity and array of body shapes, looks and style choices with this many women? I think the answer is probably none. And this is just a small portion of the sizable OITNB cast.
Outfit standouts here include Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba with Taylor Schilling and Natasha Lyonne – does this mean Nicky is back? – getting the lipstick points. Going for a look that would fit right in at Studio 54 and Vicky Jeudy crushes it in gold metallic Halston. Keeping on the metal theme with Taraji P. Henson in Marc Jacobs serving up a whole lot of steel with a dash of floral embellishment at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards; Henson was honored with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television for her performance as Cookie Lyon on Empire. Keeping on this muted shimmery trend at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards is Claire Danes in Dolce & Gabbana with her second red carpet appearance on TV Ate My Wardrobe this week. Pink lipstick yes! Kerry Washington is a patterned dress wearing queen and after last week’s dreamy D&G number here is another delight; this time it is Giambattista Valli and I am particularly here for those floaty sleeves. More pink lipstick to add some color into this week’s muted tones theme. Ending this week’s “Out of the Box” with a boost of color and pants with Rose McIver at the 2016 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future event celebrating Natalie Dormer (who was honored at the Women In Film 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards – also sponsored by Max Mara).
McIver’s look is giving me so many late 90s flashbacks, but not of the choker *shudder* kind and this looks like something I would have worn back then and even now. Also giving me Keri Russell in Felicity vibes. Love the fresh faced/hair back approach here and I cannot wait for iZombie to return after my recent binge.
Co-stars supporting co-stars, returning summer shows, crushes are all included in this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.” Plus plenty of stylish moments, a very cute TBT and more from the CFDA Awards.
The Mr Robot season 2 promo train is gearing up with a dash of Emmy FYC and here is an adorably stylish photo of the cast being adorable.
OITNB returns in just over a week (!) and some of the cast were in Berlin giving off serious glam vibes.
UnREAL returned this week with a strong and biting premiere; here is Shiri Appleby gifting us with a Doogie Howser flashback.
Back to the present and this pairing makes me so happy; great wcw choice.
Tonight is The Americans S4 finale and Holly Taylor not only plays one of the best teens on TV, but her notebook prop from the show is so spot on with detail even if we barely get to see this stuff on screen.
Lupita Nyong’o continues to get excellent backstage visitors and this week 12 Years a Slave co-star Sarah Paulson dropped by.
Keeping on this track; the Jane the Virgin cast are coming out to support Jamie Camil’s summer turn on Broadway in Chicago.
More Jane the Virgin co-stars supporting co-stars delights.
This week I found out that Kristofer Hivju is on Instagram and my Tormund crush continues to grow.
While I’m on the subject of crushes. Oh, hello. So excited to have Scott Speedman back on TV.
From inside the CFDA Awards there are some fun Lena Dunham picture hangouts (and the second Sarah Paulson appearance on here this week).
A pre-awards look from the Broad City ladies.
From one awards show to another across the pond and another excellent group of ladies hanging out.
A whole lot of You’re the Worst feelings going on and so many heart eyes at every outfit.
Shopping while shooting the Trainspotting sequel.
It is that time of year when Emmy related activities are beginning from the Variety “Actors on Actors” series to the most recent FX Upfront screening of American Crime Story. This means a lot of TV stars out and about so along with our usual behind the scenes set antics there is also plenty of promo stuff occurring. Plus a whole array of other events from the week.
Confession – I still have not caught any Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (I know), but I am still super psyched about this Instagram reveal and it is up there on the former roommate scale with Connie Britton and Lauren Graham.
Another amazing group of women and the “Fierce Verse: Feminist as Fuck” event is everything I want from a night of entertainment right down to Amber Tamblyn, Amy Poehler and Carrie Brownstein reading an Entourage script.
I’m already pretty sure that this Rachel/Quinn drinking/hangover scene is going to be an UnREAL season 2 highlight.
Adding “Quinning” to words I want to use more often.
Holly Taylor has ditched her Elizabeth Jennings’ coat and poses up a pool playing storm with her onscreen brother at the FX American Crime Story event last week.
Also at the same FX Upfronts event another pair of co-star cuties.
#CoatGoals and heart eye emoji faces.
Cherishing these Good Wife behind the scenes photos as the end is so close and also looking for clues; is this indicating that Lucca is representing Peter? This is definitely a courtroom scene.
Kerry Washington’s Confirmation tour is all about the floral frocks; perfect for spring sunshine (sorry if you are currently experiencing unseasonable snow where you are this week).
Another shot of this fabulous Kerry Washington dress (and probably my favorite of the four) as she takes part in Variety’s Actors on Actors; Emmy discussion season is upon us and I am always giddy for these one on one conversations and forthcoming roundtables.
Darts are also on the menu as well as actors chatting about actorly things and Rami shines in both the scoring and stripes department.
Uzo Aduba is currently performing on London’s West End in The Maids along side Fresh Meat’s Zawe Ashton and Lady Edith herself Laura Carmichael. The trio hit up the Olivier Awards red carpet and do the selfie thing with Stephen Oremus. Lipstick bonus points awarded to Zawe Ashton.
Now for a very random pairing with Bill Hader and Marcia Clark on stage with Gil and George.
Costume designer Jill Bream posing with Kate McKinnon who is really working the iconic Daenerys season 5 look on SNL.
So much Duplass beard and I am here for it.
Rachel Bilson takes a step back in time and while it is over 10 years since Friends ended it is still just as popular as ever.
Still no word on an Agent Carter renewal, but for now enjoy this incredible BTS shot of Bridget Regan looking cool as fuck.
Ending things this week with Lupita Nyong’o working the perfect sparkle skirt to shimmy in.
