Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

30 Mar

If this week’s Instagram collection could be summed up in one emoji it would be heart eyes as there are plenty of co-stars hanging out treats on offer with a strong dose of cute.

Kicking off this week with a big scoop of adorable and Rami Malek hanging with co-star Portia Doubleday’s dog Logan.

Da fuck?

A post shared by Carly Chaikin (@carlychaikin) on

 

Keeping on the Mr Robot train and on set selfies from the new season that don’t reveal anything new, but I heart regardless. Heavy Darlene eyeliner is always welcome.

 

Everything about this photo is charming as hell and now I want this coupling to be a very real thing.

 

Girls is on a hot streak this season and this week’s Marnie-centric episode was as triumphant as Allison Williams looks in this photo.

 

Flashing back to simpler times and pre whatever happened that caused Christopher Abbott to leave Girls under a cloud. But he did return and boy did we get a much more beardy Charlie in the process and this episode really is top tier Girls. It was good to see him again even if it was tinged with the tragedy of what has since become of Charlie. I miss that awesome bed he made.

 

Praise is justifiably heaped on Jane the Virgin from so many different angles and visually it continues to be striking in fresh and new ways. Everyone here looks spectacular.

 

They also kill it in motion.

In exactly 12 weeks… #OITNBS4 #84days #comethru

A post shared by Samira Wiley (@whododatlikedat) on

 

The OITNB countdown has begun and I cannot wait to spend more time with these ladies.

 

One thing I spend more time thinking about than is maybe necessary is whether actors end up falling asleep during sleeping scenes or in this case in a pile of laundry after fake taking a lot of drugs. And the answer looks like yes.

Happy Easter. Love, #NewGirl #SingerSongwriters

Album cover ready.

 

Basketball being played on set between takes gives me instant ER vibes and I’m also enjoying how these poses both resemble a superhero stance and shooting hoops.

 

This is very cute and I am happy Elementary has been renewed for season 5.

 

Keeping on the cute theme and sadly my request to keep this going for forever has been denied and the Room promo tour is officially over.

 

It’s not an Anthora coffee cup, but regardless I’m getting Bob Benson flashbacks.

Happy birthday to a most loving and devoted lady @amysedaris Xxx

A post shared by SJP (@sarahjessicaparker) on

 

Instagram is a platform used for many things including celebrities wishing each other happy birthday in picture form. Sarah Jessica Parker took this opportunity to post not one, but a whopping nine pictures celebrating the incredible Amy Sedaris and it only made me love SJP even more.

 

Justin Theroux went with a more sedate two, but this one is also fabulous.

 

It’s like Aya Cash reached into my brain with this picture/caption. The world needs more Melanie Laurent.

 

Best of the 2016 SAG Awards Red Carpet Part 2

31 Jan

We’re back with more SAG Awards style highs including menswear, the Orange is the New Black cast and even more bold color.

For part 1 head here.

Idris ElbaThe man of the hour and double SAG Award winner Idris Elba (in both TV and movie categories) looking cool as fuck backstage with his two trophies.Jacob Tremblay9 year-old Jacob Tremblay is a tuxedo wearing expert by now and this three piece is another hit to add to every other one he worn so far. The adorable factor also remains strong.Rami MalekRami Malek is another repeat customer to these ‘best of’ awards posts and he ditches Dior for double-breasted Ovadia & Sons. Terrific pocket square pattern detail too. Stylist Ilaria Urbinati continues to do stellar work.Laverne CoxLaverne Cox goes full Grecian in a wine color Prabal Gurung and this side shot gives an excellent view of the dramatic caped element (always a fave).Uzo AdubaThe color looks great on Uzo Aduba – winning again for Best Comedy Actress – and I am always in the bag for pleats so this Zac Posen gown definitely does it for me.OITNBI love everything about this group shot of the Orange is the New Black cast on stage together after winning Best Comedy.Ellie KemperOne of the standout pattern gowns comes courtesy of Ellie Kemper in Peter Pilotto. Once again I do think this would benefit from a bold red lip.Claire Danes and Hugh DancyI will never get bored of these two at these things even if I do miss Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham curls. The block blue Stella McCartney gown is a little flattening, but the color is great on Claire Danes. Gonna change the record and suggest a hot pink lip to set the look off.Anna FarisA different play on red for Anna Faris in Naeem Khan looking super hot with a contrasting demure neckline and high leg slit.

For more SAG Awards red carpet action head here.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

30 Dec

One last Behind the Insta-Scenes for 2015 and as you can probably gather there is not a lot of set action going on right now. Instead we have plenty of fun holiday hangouts, festive decorations and some red carpet treats because some of the Star Wars cast never stop working.

Tis the season to be jolly! I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas. Xxxxxx

A photo posted by @john_boyega on

 

Taking the title of most relevant pop culture Christmas tree decoration. I want one.

 

And a closer runner up for this prize is Sarah Jessica Parker’s Alexander Hamilton bauble. I also want one of these.

 

Back to Star Wars and Carrie Brownstein and company have some very on point socks.

 

Daisy Ridley is back on premiere duty for The Force Awakens and as “Out of the Box” is concluding its Best of 2015 countdown this is the only place to shower praise on another excellent red carpet dress choice. This time Ridley has gone for super floral purple Jason Wu.

 

Because her hair looks really great and I spy a cape.

Behind the Insta Scenes: Photos from the Set

16 Dec

Star Wars is taking over this week and we’ve got more photos from the cast on their epic promotional journey. Plus plenty of TV action including a Jessica Jones treat hidden in the middle as it is guest star spoilery, an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt singalong and the Orange is the New Black ladies coming out in force to support one of their own on Broadway.

 

Starting with something very cool this week and a super mesmerizing video of Lupita Nyong’o for The Guardian. Getting a whole lot of turtleneck joy from this outfit.

 

Lupita looked like a knockout at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens world premiere on Monday and here is a selection of the earrings she got to choose between to add even more sparkle to her ensemble.

 

Like everything about this press tour so far this photo is just so much fun. More outfit awesome from Lupita.

 

The Jane the Virgin mid-season finale made me cry (standard) and this is a whole lot of camo leggings on display.

BACK FROM THE DEAD Thank you @hbo! #theleftovers #season3 #guiltyremnant = #squadgoals

A photo posted by @justintheroux on

 

Best renewal news as The Leftovers will be back for a third and final season, which gives Justin Theroux a chance to flex his new Instagram muscles (dude is already a pro). I love that the hair and makeup team are all wearing Guilty Remnant like attire.

Meg and kevin Are happy !!!!!!!! @justintheroux #theleftovers

A photo posted by Liv Tyler (@misslivalittle) on

 

Things are a lot better between this pair in real life than for their onscreen counterparts. So much so that Justin Theroux has begun to morph into Liv Tyler’s head.

 

Speaking of co-stars hanging out – the Orange is the New Black ladies turned out in force for Danielle Brooks’ big Broadway opening night for The Color Purple and this video is giving me so many feelings.

 

As with their OITNB behind the scenes shots these ladies are all about the Insta sharing and it was impossible to choose just one.

America Ferrera looking terrific for the crazy early Golden Globes announcement (my live stream kept buffering so I didn’t get to see a whole lot of Ferrera presenting, I did get to see Dennis Quaid pronounce “Saoirse”) and this dress definitely falls into the ‘perfect for announcing award nominations’ category (if there is one).

So this is definitely a guest star spoiler which is why I have buried it in the middle of the post and I love how Jessica Jones got their Daredevil fill in this way. Firstly we need more Rosario Dawson on TV and secondly it worked very well for the narrative. And look how happy they both are.

Lots of behind the scenes love included in this week’s TV Insta selection. Plus big hair, knitwear, grocery tips and some leftover Thanksgiving fun. Enjoy!

The Leftovers continues to be one of the best things on TV this year and the Meg-centric penultimate episode gave this character depth that was maybe missing last season. Here is Liv Tyler taking in the wonderful sites of Jarden, Texas (or probably Austin) in a super cute outfit.

 

Happy You’re the Worst Day! And while we’re on the subject of penultimate episodes here is another and I just remembered what Jimmy did at the end of the last one. Oh, Jimmy.

Confession – I am still at the same point with Jessica Jones as I was when I wrote this column last week (episode 5) and it is not because I don’t want to watch more, but more like time has got away from me. Regardless, I am still all in on this pairing and photos like this only make me want to marathon the rest of those episodes.

A lot has been written about the amazing collection of wigs on The Americans, but the hair department also needs a shout out for this major volume and waves magic on Poor Martha herself. I love that Alison Wright has also adopted this name for her character.

 

While we’re on the subject of The Americans and hair; here is Holly Taylor showing off her own impressive wavy locks (it runs in this spy family) and like Gretchen Wieners she keeps her secrets in her hair. From the look on her face in this shot it doesn’t look like things are getting any easier for Paige Jennings in season 4.

Getting a different perspective on Jane the Virgin and it can’t be long before Petra is ready to give birth to her twins if this is any indicator. The way this season has dealt with the passage of time has been beneficial so far and avoids the repetition of some story points (there are some that can’t be avoided it would seem when it comes to the central love triangle).

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Nov

A slightly quieter week what with it being Thanksgiving and all, but there are still plenty of end of year awards, talk show appearances and magazine covers delivering sartorial gifts. We’ve got ladysuits, fabulous frocks and a colorful spin on a classic item.

gillian AndersonBam! Gillian Anderson offering up a lesson in how to do simple and striking with a side order of super hot at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.

Gwendoline ChristieMore accolades were dished out this week that also involved posing in front of green foliage at the 2015 British Fashion Awards. Gwendoline Christie gives a little taste of what we can expect from the highly anticipated Star Wars press tour killing it in Vivienne Westwood. I maybe bought the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar for this photo alone.

Victoria Beckham#LadySuitWatch2015 is almost at an end – don’t worry there will be a 2016 version – and Victoria Beckham does all black tailored chic at the British Fashion Awards with satin trim and lapels. It doesn’t quite top the leather lapels of Jessica Jones’ blazer in episode 5 of the new Netflix Marvel series of the same name, but runs a close second.

Krysten Ritter ladysuitSpeaking of which here is Jessica Jones herself; Krysten Ritter also entering the ladysuit fray in an impeccable Mugler white ensemble as she exits Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

Krysten RitterSame day, different outfit and looking a little more like her Marvel character, except with a colorful twist on the choice of leather jacket.

Uzo Aduba Uptown magazineWhat a great cover shot from Uptown magazine of Uzo Aduba and I love how they’ve opted against the standard run of the mill smile or serious expression choice. The accompanying interview discusses Aduba’s Emmy wins, her very busy year and how she almost quit acting just before she landed Orange is the New Black. I am very glad she didn’t.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

30 Sep

A whole lot returning shows and soon to be returning shows as the new fall season is here. Which means plenty of social media engagement and this is one bumper “Behind the Insta-Scenes.”

 

Breaking theme early and let’s start with the photo I can’t even deal with; dudes from Friday Night Lights and an adorable baby.

 

Empire returned last week and cast viewing parties for the premiere were all the rage.

 

Taraji P Henson caught the more chaotic side.

 

And new cast member Marisa Tomei was joined by a few famous friends (and Empire co-creator Lee Daniels).

 

The HUGE Empire viewing numbers are a good indicator of hype matching the amount of people watching and Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez posted this selfie from the Emmys to celebrate its return.

More Jane and this time goofing around with snacks. Or recreating that iconic John Locke Lost moment.

 

Emilia Clarke finally her hands on a Game of Thrones Emmy. Or rather someone’s hand. And that’s what holds her hair in under all of Daenerys’ locks.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Emmys

22 Sep

A special Emmys “Behind the Insta-Scenes” with TV stars documenting the whole process from pre-parties, getting ready rituals to the day after.

The Orange is the New Black cast are a regular fixture on this column and they really have the whole Emmy weekend covered; it is good to see this much enthusiasm not just for their show, but the whole experience. For anyone that wants a break from all things Emmys the standard TV Instagram will appear as usual tomorrow.

As with many stars who hit the Emmy red carpet Jessica Williams gives a well deserved shout out to her glam squad and this is a really stunning photo.

 

Coffee is just as vital pre show as it is the day after. Filming an unaware Taraji P. Henson has turned into a bit of a sport.

 

The same could be said for dancing in the mirror.

 

Meanwhile some of the Game of Thrones cast were too busy working on the new season to join the party. Now can someone zoom in on the script text and see what it says.

 

I’m still very firmly on the fence about January Jones’ jumpsuit but her Insta game is always strong.

Best of the Emmy 2015 Red Carpet – Pretty in Pink

21 Sep

So much color on the Emmy red carpet this year and while the yellow trend was trying to happen, the pink frocks caused a much bigger impact.

Elisabeth MossStarting with the boldest of pink tones with Elisabeth Moss in a magenta Oscar de la Renta gown and somehow she has not and will not win an Emmy for Mad Men. Glad to see her going for a lip color which is just as strong as her dress.

Samira Wiley EmmysSamira Wiley looks like a fabulous superhero in caped fuchsia Jill Stuart.

Christine BaranskiChristine Baranski forever slaying in hot pink Zac Posen.

Uzo AdubaMore hot pink offerings and this time a dash of navy breaks things up on Uzo Aduba’s charming custom Jonathan Cohen halter neck gown.

Jessica PareThe Mad Men cast were out in force and celebrating in style with Jessica Pare joining the pink ladies in an ethereal draped frock.

Maisie WilliamsMaisie Williams is a lady after my own heart as she adores a dress with pockets and I adore this pink quilted dress paired with heels; so many Clueless related feelings. Cher would be all over this.

Jane KrawkowskiGiving us much needed posing drama in Bibhu Mohapatra is Jane Krakowski.

Yael StoneThe problem with posing in front of light backboards is lighter dress tones such as Yael Stone’s kinda disappear, but thankfully she is giving good twirl to show off this super pretty frock.

Joanne FroggattOne final pink and Joanne Froggatt looks like she is beating the heat in this floaty and romantic J. Mendel dress with a dash of train extravagance.

More Emmy red carpet coverage can be found here and here.

Best of the Pre-Emmy Parties – Tea and Nominees

20 Sep

All the parties this weekend for those who work in TV land and Emmy day is here! Before we get to the fancy dresses of the awards (check back in the morning) there are more fun frocks, ladysuits and generally fabulous outfits and accessories to scroll through.

Yesterday we covered the Entertainment Weekly and Variety shindigs; both offering some excellent sartorial moments and today we are taking a look at the BAFTA TV Tea and the TV Academy pre-game event. Quite a few of these actresses are on our most anticipated list for tonight.

Tatiana Maslany BAFTAAfter dipping her toe into the menswear trend in tailored perfection Tatiana Maslany has gone for something far dreamier in Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. The colorful stripe detail on the sleeves gives this dress a much needed pop of color.

Tatiana Maslany LegoNow for a closeup up of her Lego clutch from Les Petits Joueurs and a brand that is getting a lot of red carpet attention of late; including Taraji P. Henson accessorizing her Empire premiere look with this fantastic keyboard version.

Tatiana Maslany Emmy pre partyOne Tatiana Maslany is never enough as Orphan Black is so good at pointing out and here she is at the Emmy nominee event wearing one of my favorite designers; in a striking Roksanda Ilincic skirt from the S/S 15 collection. Paired with a simple black tee and another Les Petits Joueurs clutch (you can’t see it in this shot but this is it) to complete a winning ensemble.

Andre HollandHot dude in a suit break courtesy of The Knick’s Andre Holland. I am very excited to have this show back next month.Kiernan Shipka BAFTAThis could be standard cute dress fare from Kiernan Shipka, but the interesting color/texture choice makes her stand out.

Sophie TurnerSophie Turner can join the #ladysuitwatch2015 gang wearing Chloe even without a jacket and this is a fun take on this trend.

Uzo AdubaA floral treat from Uzo Aduba in an ideal dress for BAFTA TV tea.

Madeleine MantockAnother and somewhat abstract take on a floral print with a lovely watercolor effect from Madeleine Mantock. Not sure about the sliver wedges with this outfit and they’d be more suited for something a little bit more 70s. At least they’re not beige.

Yara ShahidiSo Yara Shahidi’s strappy sandals are a little on the beige meh side, but the rest of her outfit is so vibrant and fun that I’ll give her a pass.

Emily Robinson and Jill SolowayJill Soloway has moved away from 60s optical illusions to a trippy forest mural and once again I am so in love with her choice of buttoned up patterned shirt. Mini-Gaby Hoffmann (the Transparent flashback casting is so spot on it is eerie) Emily Robinson goes beige sandals, but her dress is adorable.
