Out of the Box: Look of the Week

26 Jun

Considering it is summer there is a whole lot of grey going on in this week’s relatively quiet “Out of the Box.” Not to say there aren’t some stunning looks, but there’s not a whole lot of events going on right now. Colorful bold prints including all the florals has been a big trend of late and while pattern is still on display, the tones are slightly darker and still just as striking. Plus an incredible magazine cover and a fashion campaign to make you swoon.

Taraji P Henson WSuper sexy henleys are not just for the guys on The CW and Taraji P. Henson is serving up super hot vibes in J Brand jeans and a short sleeve Theory henley (by pure coincidence as I write this I am wearing a very similar top – mine is Uniqlo – and that is where our similarity ends). This cover is stunning as are the rest of the Diane Ross inspired photos. Bonus shot and I don’t think I need to explain why.

Speaking about why her Empire character has been a huge hit with audiences Henson explains “They see her heart. They see her intentions. And they love her style—her style is 17 years behind the fashion curve, which makes the clothes a character on the show. As Cookie grows, you’ll see her fashion grow. And people love that—she’s a work in progress. The only thing that never changes is her spirit: To me, Cookie is living, breathing, walking truth.”

Matt BomerOh, hello. Matt Bomer in the new Armani campaign and Channing Tatum accurately describes what it is like to look in Matt Bomer’s eyes on his Reddit AMA “no matter if you’re a man, woman, cat, hamster, you will get lost in matt bomer’s eyes. I don’t know what they are made of outside of dreams and rainbows and amazingness but it truly doesn’t matter. And when he sings. It’s like god gave with both hands and then grew a third hand and graced him with more. he’s crazy talented.”

Lizzy CaplanLizzy Caplan’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! was brilliant for a number of reasons including schooling both Jimmy and Jon Hamm on her greatness and also because this Lela Rose black and white gingham dress is everything. On the show Caplan wore black pumps and yet I am leaning in favor of the super comfortable sandals, because my feet are attuned to picking comfy cool. Gingham has been big on the runway this year and Caplan is delivering the ideal version of this look.

Kiernan Shipka CoachAt the 5th annual Coach and Friends of the High Line Summer Party Kiernan Shipka is decked out head to toe in well, Coach including a patterned bandana. This shouldn’t work with the patchwork nature of the frock and it might be Shipka fashion blindness but she is working all these pieces and looks charming in the process. The chunky ‘Harla’ wedges with the flash of red nail color gives this fall collection ensemble a much needed dose of summer.
