Out of the Box: Look of the Week

9 Mar

Award season is over, but there is still the post-party looks to celebrate here at TV Ate My Wardrobe. It has been a good week for fashion; kicking off with the Film Independent Spirit Awards, followed by the big one. The Oscars delivered on the dress drama even if there were no big surprises in the winners department.

Now for the after-parties with Vanity Fair’s annual shindig being the big draw. Plenty of incredible looks featuring new spins on recent trends. Plus a dash of Paris Fashion Week. March is starting just as busy as the previous two months.Now I thought Janelle Monáe’s hot pink suit from the Wrinkle in Time premiere was the one, but this custom Christian Siriano fire engine red ladysuit/train combo is THE ONE.

“I suggest they put a flag on a whole notha planet…”

Monáe also posted this fabulous group shot from the Vanity Fair party. So many amazing people in one photo.Lena Waithe has a strong jacket game, as witnessed at the Emmys last year. This double-breasted Ralph Lauren Purple Label check and white bow tie combo is just as fabulous.

And another amazing group shot. The official Vanity Fair photos from this party are always drool worthy, these ones by Mark Seliger continue this tradition.Queen Judith Light adds some ruffles to the proceedings; she could hold court in pre-revolution France or a 2018 Osacr party.

@vanityfair thanks for having us… capture by @markseliger So grateful for your eye ❤️

What a beautiful shot of Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor. All the couple goals.Sequins are not just for Christmas as this award season has proved. There are also many ways to wear sequins including combining them with my favorite kind of ensemble; the ladysuit! Angela Bassett has gone from one kind of sequin pants to another. This Teresa Helbig number is a mosaic dream.Rainbow sequins conjure up all those ’70s inspiration feelings. Constance Wu in Markarian is making me want to grab a pair of stacked shoes and dance the night away. Of course I would take those shoes off first before the dancing. I don’t want to break my ankle. I know they are trolling us. I still ship it. And Mindy Kaling is crushing it in Atelier Prabal Gurung.One day I want to be able to call Patricia Clarkson, Patty. For now all I can do is marvel at Clarkson in another incredible Christian Siriano gown from the night.Zoe Lister Jones has gone the Constance Wu dress length route in magenta Sally LaPointe, which gives a slightly cooler vibe. They also don’t have to worry about anyone stepping on their train all night. An Oscar de la Renta princess style frock for Abigail Spencer, which is super pretty. Also Timeless is back this weekend and I cannot wait.
Now for something completely different with Karen Gillan in a whimsical Ronald van der Kemp frock that looks like a mural for a nursery. That doesn’t sound like a compliment, but it is.More Christian Siriano with one final glitzy frock from the night. Busy Philipps was front and center with BFF Michelle Williams last year, much to my delight. Philipps didn’t have such a dramatic night this time, but looks fabulous nonetheless. Speaking of Michelle Williams, she attended the star-studded Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week. This look is very much in her wheelhouse. Also one of the less out there/more wearable outfits worn by the celebs in attendance. Lots of leather at Louis Vuitton including this belted shirt dress as worn by Sophie Turner. A fun switch up from the Sansa Stark fur of it all. Speaking of fur (of the faux variety), Noomi Rapace looks like she is having the most fun in this ensemble. And I’ve got used to seeing Edgar Ramirez surrounded by fashion, but not with all this hair. Yesterday was the first Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2 table read and the first episode will be shot in Paris. I cannot wait to see what Midge will be wearing.

At the Miu Miu show, Mrs Maisel herself, Rachel Brosnahan goes for classic polka dots with a red twist.Christie is already her surname and at Miu Miu, Gwendoline Christie is serving up some Miss Marple/Poirot cast member vibes. This houndstooth coat and Peter Pan collar need to be worn by the star of the next adaptation.


Best of 2017 – Out of the Box: Look of the Week (Part 1)

22 Dec

Welcome to the TV Ate My Wardrobe Best of 2017 coverage! As with”Out of the Box” highlights from previous years everything that features here has already appeared in “Look of the Week.”

There have been a lot of amazing magazine covers this year featured on “Out of the Box.” The first part of this 2017 rundown is dedicated to these striking images. Twelve covers from twelve different magazines. Ruth Negga was a constant fixture this year on “Out of the Box,” particularly during award season. Another Magazine delivered the first stunning issue of the year back in February. Ten months later and it is still on my coffee table. Pride of place. Mahershala Ali was another star of award season, so when GQ unveiled this cover in June it was met with much joy. Considering how grey and miserable it is right now, it is also the boost December needs.Vanity Fair celebrates Serena Williams and motherhood in a beautifully stripped down manner. A nod to Demi Moore’s VF cover from fifteen years ago, while being completely about Serena.
The heritage print revival of 2017 has been one of my fashion highlights. Lena Headey’s walk through the highlands for The Edit was just the way to showcase this sartorial spin. I have strong positive feelings about Kirsten Dunst and polka dots. The two combined on this Nylon cover is the dream. Plus this profile is by glass brick aficionado and one of my culture writer faves, Molly Lambert. Another ‘still on the coffee table’ issue. Best use of millennial pink goes to The Hollywood Reporter with their profile of multi-hyphenate Donald Glover.Everything about Sterling K. Brown’s Emmy win makes me happy. Including Variety’s celebration of this. And Brown’s fabulous socks. Usually the clothes worn on covers cost at least a few months rent, not so with Samira Wiley’s Stylist shot. Here she wears Urban Outfitters and Uniqlo in the most autumnal colors. This is another magazine that is still on my coffee table. Sometimes all you need to make you stop and stare at a magazine cover is a simple beauty shot. The November issue of Allure does just this; Kerry Washington looks like is staring into your soul.What a fun, striking cover from Entertainment Weekly featuring Constance Wu and Henry Golding. And I am already super excited to see Crazy Rich Asians. The costuming is extravagant, plus that velvet suit is bang on trend. The last couple of months has been dominated by Lady Bird chat, the woman of the hour Greta Gerwig deservedly getting a lot of attention. This black and white Bust cover is giving me a lot of Frances Ha feelings. My favorite kind.This is how to do a debut issue. New British Vogue Editor-In-Chief, Edward Enniful made a huge splash with a striking cover starring Model of the Year, Adwoa Aboah. Evoking classic ’80s cover shots without feeling derivative.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

30 Jun

The pattern theme continues much to my delight and Look of the Week is awash once again with some bold ensembles. It’s summer so this makes total sense.

Plenty of premieres, more awards and July issues of magazines continue to wow. September, you have a lot to live up to.

For some sporty and sparkly chic check out style crush Tatiana Maslany and my article on the new (and wonderful) Netflix series GLOW.At the BET Awards Issa Rae is bold stripe delight in Balmain pairing a blazer with short shorts and sandals. Everything about this look is a dream and Rae tops it off with the perfect pink lipstick.And while we’re on the subject of Issa Rae, here is the season 2 promo poster for Insecure and the premiere date is less than a month away! Never has a poster made me want to go for a swim more than this. Excellent swimsuit choice too.The third week in a row for Zendaya as the Spider-Man: Homecoming promo tour continues. So far there has been a stunning Vogue cover, putting a bird on it and now mixing fun and sophistication in stripes and ruffled Altuzarra.

A velvet trench doesn’t really scream the month of June, but just know I am very much coveting Karen Gillan’s Self Portrait coat dress. This week’s florals come from Jenny Slate at the Despicable Me LA premiere in Alice McCall. The heavy print and fringe makes this dress feel a little rug-adjacent, but the slightly sheer element gives it a much lighter look. Great gold sandals too.At the Younger season 4 premiere, Sutton Foster looks like she came straight from rom-com set in the ’80s in polka dot Saloni. This is of course a compliment of the highest order.In ‘July gives great cover’ news; bow down to Serena Williams and Vanity Fair. After letting my subscription lapse a few months ago, VF is making a great play to get me to sign back up again with two excellent cover stories in a row. 

The interview goes into detail about how Serena and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian got together and what Serena did when she found out she was pregnant just before the Australian Open kicked off. A tournament she won without dropping a single set. It is a celebration of all things Serena and I cannot wait to pick up this magazine. In just over two weeks, Game of Thrones returns so get ready for TV talk to be dominated by this juggernaut. First up a super fun Time cover story and design that mixes religious iconography with Pop Art colors and Old Hollywood; you can read all about photographer Miles Aldridge’s concept here. There’s also a little Twin Peaks and my dream to now have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau playing the prime suspect in an Agatha Christie adaptation.

Sophie Turner in Gucci (currently crushing it as the brand of the moment) is my favorite of the portraits in a shot that looks like a fucked up and fashionable fairy tale.

Also over at Vanity Fair they picked out two important details from the piece and the first one is something I cannot wait to see in the new season.Preacher is back and the first two episodes are super fun. Plus Tulip is once again a major TV style crush mixing feminine summer dresses with edgy leather. Ruth Negga has been a regular presence here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and her cover/editorial for Town & Country is another style hit including the above dreamy shot of Negga in Fendi. In the piece Negga talks about how much she loves books and her favorite show growing up was My So-Called Life.

As if I needed another reason to think we could be besties, on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Negga talked about how much she loves Grease 2, which is also my favorite of the Grease movies. So much so that I even managed to slip a reference to it in this Wonder Woman essay I wrote for Elle.

All my fave actresses talk about Grease 2 on The Tonight Show.

Best of the Pre-Emmy Parties: Vanity Fair and BAFTA

18 Sep

More pre-Emmy gaming at the Vanity Fair and FX party with a whole host of TV Ate My Wardrobe faves and this party also showcases just how good FX is at the moment. Plus the annual BAFTA LA Tea Party, which always delivers on the daytime shindig attire.keri-russell-and-matthew-rhysGot to kick off with the show that dominates a lot of costume chat in these parts; Keri Russell always brings the casual glam to events like this and for this occasion Matthew Rhys has dialed back on the hiatus beard grizzle with a trim. Nice color suit too and I am looking forward to seeing more of this IRL couple tonight.keirdrich-sellatiAnd this is several shades of adorable from the Americans kids and Keidrich Sellati’s turtleneck/blazer combo is levels of spy and casual attire that his TV dad would wear. schwimmer-paulson-brownDelightful is the word I would use to describe this photo with the cast of American Crime Story giving off all the good vibes. Excellent lipstick choice from Sarah Paulson too.
connie-britton-and-jesse-plemonsThis Vanity Fair/FX party is just a long list of feelings pretty much; including this Friday Night Lights reunion. Tami and Lance feeeeeeelings. donald-gloverDonald Glover keeps the same shirt and changes the suit and still looks just as good as the day before.angela-bassettAngela Bassett always looks incredible and this is no exception. tatiana-maslany-and-maisie-williamsNow to the BAFTA LA Tea Party and there are a lot of super cute patterned dresses to scroll through including Maisie Williams in a very fun House of Holland number, which pairs really well with Tatiana Maslany’s also starry patchwork Coach frock. yara-shahidiGoing slightly more pattern delicate is Yara Shahidi in an ethereal Tommy Hilfiger dress and another stunner from the Black-ish star.millie-bobby-brownA few days ago I mentioned some red carpet similarities between Millie Bobby Brown and Kiernan Shipka; this look continues this notion and while I’m not a fan of the term ‘age appropriate’ (as it can sound quite stuffy) this is exactly that. Good choice of flats too.melora-hardinTransparent’s Melora Hardin also has the right idea for a frock that bridges the summer/fall gap especially when it is still this warm.alison-wrightA different spin on print and Alison Wright’s Stella McCartney jumpsuit (the top version has been worn by Cookie on Empire) is a fun take on daytime party attire.rupaulPolka dots and pink at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, zebra print and yellow at the BAFTA Tea Party; RuPaul crushes it in color and print every single time.

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).

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

4 Dec

An eclectic “Out of the Box” this week including Star Wars: The Force Awakens pre-premiere press tour excitement, a variety of events and a series of stunning black and white posed shots.

Lupita Nyong'oA Zac Posen dress that sparkles as if it is a starry sky from a galaxy far away (I’ll see myself out) for Lupita Nyong’o first at Bloomingdale’s ‘Force 4 Fashion’ event on Wednesday followed by an appearance on The Daily Show. The dress is low key elegance that turns into a sparkly light up display and I am so ready for this press tour.

Gwendoline ChristieOne of the ‘Force 4 Fashion’ dresses is this stunning Giles Deacon creation; inspired by Captain Phasma and worn here by Phasma herself, Gwendoline Christie. For more incredible photos and a chat about the making of the gown head to Vanity Fair. I love this photo so much I’ve made it my new phone wallpaper; so much power and poise.

Elisabeth MossA cute and simple Peter Pan collared frock for Elisabeth Moss at the IWC Schaffhausen Rodeo Drive boutique opening; an ideal look that can be dressed up or down for day or night. It maybe also slightly resembles the dress worn by me in my Twitter avatar.

Emmy RossumFeeling festive in an all red Salvatore Ferragamo pleated turtleneck dress is Emmy Rossum (in her second appearance this week) at the Godiva ‘Hot Chocolate for a Cause’ benefit. If this wasn’t December this might be too matchy matchy, but it is perfect for a December event like this.

Amy PoehlerAmy Poehler received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week and did so in style wearing a charming winter floral dress. Amy was joined by a variety of co-stars/collaborators to celebrate including beautiful tropical fish Rashida Jones and she’s also showing off the pattern pretty.

Viola DavisInStyle gets their first cover of 2016 – yes it is already 2016 in magazine world – so right with this fantastic beauty shot of Viola Davis. Inside the issue Davis talks about her own style versus Annalise’s and a very refreshing beauty philosophy – “What’s released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness. I’ve never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I’ve been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith.”

Charlotte Rampling and Isabella RosselliniNow entering the black and white section of this week’s “Out of the Box” with Variety’s Actors on Actors‘ conversations following the same model as their Emmy series. The idea of Charlotte Rampling and Isabella Rossellini sitting down discussing anything is exciting enough and this portrait captures them in all their regal glory. Which is perfect considering they are both acting icons.

Elizabeth Banks and Carey MulliganAnother entry in the Variety ‘Actors on Actors’ series and a shot featuring two more TV Ate My Wardrobe favorites; Elizabeth Banks and Carey Mulligan both make really interesting choices in the their work and style. This is no exception.

Amy SchumerThe new 2016 Pirelli calendar photos have been unveiled including this stunning shot of Amy Schumer taken by Annie Leibovitz. Schumer posted the photo on her Twitter with the accompanying words “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman” getting ahead of the comments. Click on the image for a clearer look.

Sadly the calendar is not available to buy and unless you are in the fashion industry it will be hard to get your hands on one. Guess I’ll be sticking with the Countryfile calendar my dad buys me every year instead.

SerenaHere is the April entry and Serena Williams giving off nothing but strong and beautiful vibes. Head to Elle for more entries including Patti Smith and Tavi Gevinson.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 Jun

Despite how much print has been in decline in recent years magazine covers still possess the power to make a huge impact and the July issue of Vanity Fair demonstrates just how important old media still is (while being unveiled on social media). This has also been an awards show filled week with the Peabody and Glamour Women of the Year celebrations taking place. Plus all your polo watching sartorial needs are covered.

Caitlyn JennerHi Caitlyn, it is so good to meet you! This is a stunning cover for many reasons and while plenty has been said about how amazing Caitlyn Jenner looks all glammed up it is also important to remember this is about far more than just external beauty. Laverne Cox addresses this on her Tumblr and it is essential reading.

EssenceSpeaking of Laverne Cox here is she is with some of her Orange is the New Black co-stars (just one week until new episodes!) on the cover of Essence all dressed in the color of their show. What’s great about this cover is the number of women featured (Danielle Brooks, Samira Wiley, Adrienne C. Moore, Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba, Vicky Jeudy) and that it is celebrating ‘sexy at every size’ styling each women in a dress for their figure. Body positive feelings happiness.

Amy Schumer and Tina FeyMoving on from magazines to awards with Amy Schumer receiving a Peabody for Inside Amy Schumer from Tina Fey (on stage there was smooching) with both ladies opting for black. Schumer’s LBD is tuxedo inspired which automatically gets all the points from me.

Kerry WashingtonThe UK Glamour Women of the Year Awards look like a whole lot of fun if the Instagram shots are anything to go by and this is reflected in the red carpet attire with Kerry Washington going for 70s disco infused tube top and glitzy David Koma skirt. Now I want to go out dancing.

Gillian AndersonI don’t know if I would love this on anyone but Gillian Anderson and a tulle cape is so playful and so dramatic that I can’t not smile. Extra giddiness comes from the return of Hannibal last night and all the incredible Bedelia costuming.

Emma WillisSimple chic from Emma Willis and she never disappoints on the red carpet. While it isn’t quite Roksanda levels of stunning as last year’s the blue neck detail and texture elevates it.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonTV Ate My Wardrobe’s official Best Dressed Couple crown wearers continue to please in every single way with Diane Kruger’s magical fashion unicorn status remaining intact in vintage Roland Mouret at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Joshua Jackson’s grey suit is impeccable and there are no words to describe how he is looking at her.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ruth Wilson, Emma RobertsCulottes are a returning trend that has me invoking a loud WHY?! but Ruth Wilson is making me consider them as a fashion choice because she manages to look pretty damn cool while watching polo last weekend. Basically this event includes actresses wearing clothes I might normally be dismissive of that on this occasion look super cool. Maggie Gyllenhaal is working a pink suit with a white crop top with a pair of highly covetable sunglasses. And Emma Roberts’ yellow dress is something I would like in any sun soaked setting. Cute leopard print bag too.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week – Magazine Cover Roundup

13 Mar

A bonus “Out of the Box” as there is just too many brilliant new magazine covers to squeeze into our regular column. I have in the past talked about my magazine feelings (they are strong) and new magazine cover week is often a mixture of disappointment and excitement; sometimes bad photoshop takes the shine off, alternatively a cover star might be a someone unexpected and amazing.

Different editorials are aiming for a variety of things with shifting units being high on the list of priorities and the cover has a huge impact on this. Fashion, entertainment and lifestyle magazines all feature in this week’s column and I will be adding all these issues to my already burgeoning print and digital collection.

Mad MenThe first of many Mad Men covers to come celebrating/sobbing over the final hurrah and they are starting with a doozy on The Hollywood Reporter. In the issue they go back to the beginning with an oral history and the only thing this cover shot is lacking is some Kiernan Shipka. They all look fabulous and if you want to find the perfect way to distract yourself just take a look at the Jon Hamm close-up portraits.

Maisie WilliamsApril is going to be a great month for TV and Game of Thrones is high on the most anticipated list. Experiencing the build-up buzz for the first time after finally catching up last year is going to be fun; case in point the unveiling of Arya Stark’s new look with a hint of “Tragic Kingdom” era Gwen Stefani on the cover of Entertainment Weekly got me all a fluster. New costumes to pore over ahoy.

IMG_1406Because all things Broad City, including this New York cover lead to joy (except the realization the season finale is next week).

Marie Claire Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington is mesmerizing on Marie Claire’s April edition and after last month’s InStyle debacle it is an image that thankfully looks like the Scandal star. It is a captivating pose and while they’ve gone for an Olivia Pope clothing color palette, there is plenty of Washington shining through with very un-Olivia like tussled hair. Soon to be Scandal guest star Lena Dunham has written the piece aptly entitled “Why We All Want to be Kerry Washington.”

Robin WrightAnother stare into your soul cover from another amazing lady; Robin Wright is exuding all kinds of cool on Vanity Fair and she is the main reason House of Cards is calling out to me. Short hair perfection and the story behind this amazing cut is that it was a necessity ““I was just cutting off damaged hair—too much bleach over months of [appearing in] different movies. It was a mercy killing, but it works for the character.” Iconic haircuts often are the result of an accident (see the Rachel) and this is one of those.

Head here for a PaleyFest themed “Out of the Box.”

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Feb

The Independent Spirit Awards got lost in the Oscar red carpet crazy and because it is one of my favorite red carpet events – there is SO much color and pattern – most of this week’s “Out of the Box” is dedicated to this with a smattering of the post Oscars Vanity Fair party. February is a whirlwind of fancy pants dresses (sometimes literally), so I am glad to round off the month on a high of print and bold tones.

Aubrey PlazaAfter tearfully saying goodbye to TV Ate My Wardrobe style icon April Ludgate it is only right to start with Aubrey Plaza in floral Suno; even though Parks is over it is safe to say Plaza will be gracing these pages a whole bunch.

Jenny SlateI have strong feelings about Jenny Slate, Mary Katrantzou and the color yellow; together this is perfection. Related – I have spent the past few days saying “look like dis” all thanks to this amazing Kroll Show sketch.

Ava DuVernayCombining pockets, print and color for one exceptional ensemble is Ava DuVernay.

Gillian JacobsIt is a cute sundress palooza and Gillian Jacobs is an “Out of the Box” staple when it comes to outfits like this Preen frock and red pumps.

Cate BlanchettCate Blanchett is a style queen and she gets the laidback vibe spot in a heart fluttering Schiaparelli Couture.

Aja Naomi KingMore glorious yellow from How to Get Away with Murder’s Aja Naomi King with a dash of snakeskin pattern pumps. The big question is after ditching HTGAWM mid-season should I watch last night’s finale?

Julianne MooreOne reason I love the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet so much is it is the optimal point of fun and fancy; where dress length can be anything you want. And Julianne Moore’s Christian Dior Couture sparkly mini number ticks all the boxes.

David OyelowoEven the dudes get in on the colorful attire, although David Oyelowo showed at the Oscars it isn’t a onetime thing and while this baby blue suit is a little rumpled in places I am still swooning all over the place.

Emmy RossumWell this just delightful and Emmy Rossum in Oscar de la Renta has me wishing it was a little warmer right now (layers and layers of knits is what I have covered myself in today).

Rinko KikuchiI’m a little mad I didn’t get to this red carpet sooner because look how perfect all of these dresses are?! Another incredible floral beauty with Rinko Kikuchi in Chanel.

Rashida JonesA switch in party but not pattern joy with Rashida Jones at the post Oscars Vanity Fair shindig looking resplendent in Andrew Gn.

Mindy KalingDeviating from the color/pattern theme and Mindy Kaling wearing another incredible creation from Mindy Project costume designer Salvador Perez. Kaling is normally all about the bold and while this has neither color nor print it might be one of the boldest outfits she has worn. Simply stunning.


Diane Kruger is a Magical Fashion Unicorn

23 Feb

Got a long post coming with the best from the Oscars red carpet, but in the meantime here is Diane Kruger wearing a Donna Karan Atelier dress/jumpsuit. I have complicated jumpsuit feelings (which I’m sure regular readers are very aware of) and I don’t think there is anyone else who could wear something like this and make it work.

Diane KrugerAbsolutely killing it; Diane Kruger forever takes red carpet risks and pulls  it off.

In other Diane Kruger related news – this photo should come with smolder warning signs:

Little ditty 'bout Josh and Diane. Jackson and Kruger, that is. #vfoscarparty
