Out of the Box: Look of the Week – Part 2

30 Dec

Rounding off the Best of 2016 series with Part 2 of our favorite “Out of the Box” moments. Last week we dedicated the first part to the magazine covers that stood out and now it is time for style highs from red carpets, events, awards and panels.

The only rule was they had to appear as part of “Out of the Box” and we’ve got a good mix of casual, fancy and everything in-between.Evan Rachel WoodBest LadySuitWatch2016

So many fantastic Evan Rachel Wood ladysuit moments in 2016 and it was super hard to pick a winner. This red one is incredible, but the collar, lipstick and metallic pumps from back in June take the prize.Yara Shahidi

Tracee Ellis RossBest Sequins: TV Mother/Daughter Edition

Yara Shahidi is not only 2016’s best dressed teen, but an overall style icon for the year. This super sparkly sequin Tracy Reese dress that she wore to the BET Awards gives me so much joy as does Tracee Ellis Ross at PaleyFest in March.julianne-mooreBest Sequins – Awards Edition

Continuing the sequin love and we’ve got the whole year covered as this was pretty recent; Julianne Moore in Tom Ford to celebrate Tom Ford at one of the many film award season events. Alicia VikanderBest Post-Oscar Party

It is not just the Oscar that makes Alicia Vikander’s post-Oscar Louis Vuitton much better than the yellow Beauty and the Beast style gown she wore to the actual ceremony. Everything about this is incredible and just because it is black it is far from boring; so many fantastic sequins in 2016.Brie LarsonBest Pattern – Eyes

First up Jacob Tremblay is 2016’s best dressed kid and he also outdid a lot of his older male counterparts. At the pre-Oscar photocall his tie matches his onscreen mom Brie Larson’s super fun Emilia Wickstead skirt and blouse. An instant standout style moment that brings much needed whimsy. Mary Elizabeth WinsteadBest Pattern – Lips 

Mary Elizabeth Winstead was not only one of the best dressed characters on TV this year, but she also brought it on the red carpet. This Victoria Beckham red lip patterned dress is very high on my covet list.Kirsten DunstBest Cannes 

Serving on the jury at Cannes this year meant so many amazing Kirsten Dunst ensembles from the fancy to casual chic; it is this yellow Dior daytime perfection with an A+ red lipstick that was my favorite. Lupita Nyong'oBest Pattern Clashing 

Pleats tend to make me want to twirl and Lupita Nyongo’s colorful Prada frock at the Obie Awards is giving me those feelings. It could look like a lot against the equally bold floral backdrop and yet Nyong’o is totally pulling this off.Aubrey PlazaTatiana Maslany ColbertBest Talk Show Entrance 

Aubrey Plaza is a forever style icon and has featured in these end of year lists in the past. First she started my pleated leather skirt obsession and in June 2016 she arrived at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in pretty much my dream casual outfit. Tatiana Maslany on the other hand is doing the sneakers with heels in her hand thing while also arriving at The Late Show and she is another casual dress queen. caitriona-balfeBest Black and White 

Everything about Caitriona Balfe’s Burberry gown is a dream at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards showing that she looks fantastic in any era. I’m excited to see what she will wear to the Golden Globes in a couple of weeks.mads-mikkelsenBest Hannibal

Mads Mikkelsen looks really great in a suit and this is the first Best of year without any Hannibal. Thankfully at the Doctor Strange premiere Mads is wearing a suit that wouldn’t look out of place on the famous cannibal he plays. matthew-rhys-and-keri-russell-operaBest Cape 

Serving up so much drama at the Met Opera in September and Keri Russell has worn Stephane Rolland for three very dressy events this year – the other two being at the White House and Emmys – and this black caped number is my overall favorite. A very fancy date night with Matthew Rhys. constance-zimmer-and-shiri-applebyBest Friends 

Thankfully things are a lot better IRL between Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby than their UnREAL counterparts and while season 2 was super messy/missed the mark in places, the subsequent promo tour and red carpet appearances always delivered.

This is from the Elle Women in Hollywood celebration at the end of October; they are giving off metallic dress and flaming hot jumpsuit excellence.Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Olsen, Michael B. JordanBest Sunglasses

As the Fug Girls like to say “Everybody looks hotter in sunglasses” and the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic helps prove this theory. Summer wardrobe delights from Elizabeth Olsen, Michael B. Jordan, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale.TCA You're the WorstBest TCA 

Panel outfits are an “Out of the Box” fave as they tend to deliver on the casual cool. With Aya Cash she also delivers on great lipstick and she also let me know what brand and color (Inglot 13). I picked it up while on honeymoon and it is fantastic. Thanks, Aya!2 Dope QueensBest Crown

To my favorite podcast of the year and two women that made 2016 a whole lot better (including the time they were there for me when I traveled home on the train after my dad died in July). This fabulous shot of Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson from The New York Times puts the crown in 2 Dope Queens.Sarah Paulson and Sterling K BrownBest Look of the Week

I said this at the time and I’ll say it again, but the way Sarah Paulson is looking at Sterling K. Brown is how I would look at Sterling K. Brown. Marcia and Chris 4EVA.

Best of TV 2016: The Best Songs

29 Dec

End of year lists can focus on various things – performances, costumes, episodes, overall show – and one of my favorite things to look back at is the best use of music on TV. Song can transport us to those all important standout moments or introduce us to new music; over the last few years I have compiled playlists from TV to celebrate this. Last year I focused a single show as You’re the Worst is particularly strong in the end credit department, whereas in previous years I have done a general playlist of the year in TV music.

For 2016 I have returned to the latter format going all in with 28-tracks and you can find the full breakdown and playlist over at ColliderfleabagSongs and music from 21-shows were chosen with some getting two tracks (including the above Fleabag) because I just couldn’t chose and a variety of genres feature. There are songs to dance to, induce tears and all other kinds of emotions and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

You can find instrumental pieces from Westworld and Game of Thrones, tracks that have appeared on “Music Monday” from the melancholy to fun cover versionsMr. Robot was messy in season 2, but nailed the soundtrack once again and shows like Atlanta and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend have music ingrained into the very fabric. You will find songs from The AmericansHalt and Catch FireGirlsBlack Mirror and American Crime Story as well as a literal earworm from BrainDead. Plus many, many more.

Costuming is my first love, but soundtracks is a close second and I am so glad I got to compile such an extensive playlist and discuss the best of 2016 over at Collider. Check it out here and get your dance on.

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.

Thank you so much @britandco & @tracy_reese for my very first #NYFW!!! I had an amazing time covering this one of a kind garden fashion show/presentation, I got to talk to Whoopi Goldberg and @thesheertruth, bump into @elleusa superstar @nikkiogun, check out the models, which were a collection of professional peeps and everyday women, plus my Spanx stayed in place the whole time, and Tracy, who has dressed FLOTUS, gifted me with three dresses. ANYWAY! Stay tuned for my videos covering this amazing show. I'll be posting them soon. And start pre-ordering clothes from Tracy's new collection.

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 LandManchester by the SeaColossal 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.

Watching the season finale with my #Braindead babes!! @nikkimjames @paigeisapeach @efromthed

A post shared by Mary Elizabeth Winstead (@mewins) on

 

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.

Cole at rest.

A post shared by Joshua Jackson (@vancityjax) on

 

The boots and jeans look works well on Joshua Jackson so thank you, Affair costume department.

Instagram delivers on the TV style front, film festival glamour and on set singing this week. Plus find out some intimate You’re the Worst information and the usual amount of sweater and lipstick coveting.

 

The Leftovers is still shooting its final season out in Australia and I am glad to see Justin Theroux will be sporting his beard throughout. Liv Tyler captures him here working the leopard print in the hair and makeup trailer.

It has been a bit of a Leftovers watching week as I got the second season for my birthday and I wrote about Kevin’s karaoke here.

….ran into some strangeness… #FallonTonight

A post shared by Questlove Gomez (@questlove) on

 

The kids from Stranger Things crushed their appearance on The Tonight Show and Questlove captures some of the backstage madness in this group selfie.

 

Still no details about who Matthew Rhys is playing on Girls but here he is shooting a scene with Lena Dunham, beard and all.

Mindy Kaling has been documenting Adam Pally eating chips on the set of The Mindy Project and I am here for it.

I can only see half this sweater, but I know I love it.

Chris Geere. Cock Sock. Need we say more? #youretheworst #morningrituals

A post shared by Backstage (@backstagecast) on

 

You’re the Worst returned last week with a fabulous episode and the cast took over the Backstage Instagram. There’s plenty of behind the scenes videos including Chris Geere showing off a modesty pouch/cock sock. He definitely had to wear one in the season premiere.

 

Standard lipstick and sunglasses envy.

 

Chris Geere was also understandably excited to make his talk show debut on The Late Show.

 

One of my favorite costume designers with one of my favorite actresses. Looking forward to seeing what this pairing brings.

 

Now for one of my makeup artist faves with another Orange is the New Black stars and this series of photos of Natasha Lyonne are fantastic.

A real man doesn't shy away from the high notes. #RaJor #Wham!

A post shared by Robert Buckley (@robertearlbuckley) on

 

The iZombie set continues to deliver on the fun and the songs.

 

Greg Williams delivers once again on intimate photographs from the Venice Film Festival and here are a few of my favorites. Starting with Jake getting ready, just because.

 

Getting up close with super couple Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. Luckily this dress doesn’t require some awkward lying down.

 

When in Venice you’ve got to have a boat shot. For more from Greg Williams check out his portraits from the festival at Vanity Fair.

31 Aug

Fall TV premiere dates inch closer – and You’re the Worst is back tonight! – and so plenty of behind the scenes promo is occurring. Plus fabulous guest stars, guest directors and one show is almost forever finished shooting.

 

A lot of beard to kick off this week’s Insta highlights with Kristofer Hivju and Michael Fassbender. Future Fassy in Game of Thrones possibilities are probably low, but this wouldn’t be his first HBO venture as he was in a couple of Band of Brothers episodes.

New Girl also returns September 20 and Hannah Simone’s got the co-stars in sunglasses shots on hand. First up Max Greenfield and bathrobes.

If there was an Olympic team sport of Umbrella Cuddling we would win gold.

And then Zooey Deschanel under an umbrella wearing a headband and check shirt look that I will no doubt be after when this episode airs.

 

Also back the same week on Fox is Empire and Taraji P. Henson gives a little costume sneak peek featuring some very large hooped earrings.

To be filed under “this is kind of cool, but also creepy as fuck.”

 

Eva Longoria is directing an episode of Jane the Virgin this season and everyone is very pleased with this. Also the amount of Brett Dier popping up in these shots would suggest Michael is not going to be dearly departed.

WOMENS EQUALITY DAY!!! #womensequalityday #janethevirgin

A post shared by Yael Grobglas (@yaelgrobglas) on

 

And a ladies only version. I am thrilled to see Bridget Regan kicking it on set.

 

While we won’t get to see the final season of Girls until early next year, the show is currently wrapping up and these final days are getting the Instagram treatment.

 

And polaroids to mark Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke’s last day shooting.

 

BrainDead continues to be my favorite show of the summer, but the last two weeks have been lacking any Gustav so hopefully the next episode will rectify this.

 

Happy You’re the Worst Day! I am so ready.

Midweek Instagram TV highlights this week include some of our weekly faves with the iZombie and You’re the Worst cast continuing their behind the scenes photo domination. Plus style highs from Yara Shahidi, James Wolk wrapped in blankets and my new costume obsession.

A post shared by Gina Rodriguez (@hereisgina) on

 

A combination of so many of my favorite things and Gina Rodriguez suits this styling so well. Between this and The Get Down (see more of that below) my seventies clothing obsession is alive and well.

And we're back. But which one is she? #Petra or #anezka #janethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

More Jane the Virgin set antics and the return of Petra (or could it be her evil twin? – I heart this plot twist so much). Always wine.

THERE she is. #BTS #Scandal #oliviapope

A post shared by Kerry Washington (@kerrywashington) on

 

While we’re on the subject of wine; one of TV’s biggest wine drinkers has a full glass (of grape juice) on the set of Scandal and it sounds like I need to catch up after reading this Entertainment Weekly season 6 post (I keep quitting and coming back).

 

This sounds like everything I would ever want from a Marnie storyline. She would be so perfect for this.

Keep a look out for me as the evil twin on The Americans next season.

A post shared by Judd Apatow (@juddapatow) on

 

Matthew Rhys and his glorious beard are guest starring on the final season of Girls. Sadly no details are available yet so time to conjure up your best pairing for him. I am not so secretly hoping he will have something to do with Adam. Fun connection time – Matthew Rhys and Adam Driver shared the stage back in 2012 in Look Back in Anger and this also happened to be the play that got the Americans casting director interested in Rhys for Philip Jennings.

A post shared by The Get Down Costume Dept. (@thegetdowncostumes) on

 

For your seventies costume design fix check out both Baz Luhrmann’s new show The Get Down on Netflix and the costume designers Insta, which is filled with shots like this one of Justice Smith. And to read my thoughts on the costuming in the first episode head here.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Aug

The 2016 summer TCA press tour continued this week (and finished yesterday), which means another round of fabulous panel and party attire. This week has already given an instant entry into magazine cover of the year and the TCA awards delivered on the Mr Robot cast style dominance (and for my take on some of the costuming this season head here and here).

It isn’t all TCA on “Out of the Box” this week as Emmy campaigning continues and one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s favorite podcasts gets profiled in The New York Times.Taraji P HensonAt the Fox All-Star party Taraji P. Henson in Emanuel Ungaro is pretty much wearing my platonic ideal of a floral dress; ideal because it is perfect for a casual summer event AND because you could throw on some ankle boots with knit tights for when it starts to get colder.

The dash of pink nail polish with black Alex Wagner sandals is an excellent finishing touch.Yara ShahidiSo this shot of Yara Shahidi is from last week’s ABC day/Black-ish panel, which I somehow missed until I saw Shahidi’s Instagram. From H to T (thanks Tyra) this is a fantastic look throwing in some whimsy with leopard print shoes and ticking all my collar/bow boxes. Shahidi continues to impress not just on a teen style scale, but in general.Mindy KalingMindy Kaling goes classic in a black Dolce & Gabbana at the Hulu Mindy Project panel, but kicks the whole look with some fun peep toe pumps and a second case of fabulous pink nail polish this week.Lizzy CaplanThis Roland Mouret frock is a lot of dress to pull off and Lizzy Caplan is just the person to do that at the CBS, CW and Showtime TCA party; crushing it on non-boring shoe and lip color choices too. Claire Danes and Mandy PatinkinAt a quick glance and if you switched out the bottle of water for a cocktail then this looks more like a vacation snap; Mandy Patinkin has gone full casual and Claire Danes is still giving off a tanned glow in a stunning green and orange textured frock with a floral trim. Instead it is the Homeland panel and here’s what they revealed about the forthcoming sixth season. You're the WorstThe You’re the Worst cast continue to delight in the run up to season 3 and Aya Cash was kind enough to tell me on Twitter what lip color/brand she is wearing. I am also very much into Cash’s Rachel Comey ensemble and Kether Donohue looks lovely in blush pink. Plus, Desmin Borges and Chris Geere do the casual/smart panel balance well. TCA You're the WorstAnd one from the You’re the Worst panel because just look at these beauties.Keri Russell and Matthew RhysSpeaking of which and as Emmy campaigning season continues the “it is about time” Emmy nominees, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys have given another joint interview (this time for Deadline) and as with the THR one it is a delight of finishing each other’s sentences and talking about The Americans. This one goes more in-depth into last season and they also discuss how Russell’s pregnancy ended up giving Rhys the biggest episode of the season to direct (which he crushed) and this also happens to be both their episode submission.

This Mark Mann photo also looks like a great way to sell chambray and seersucker shirts for all your upstate New York vacation needs. 2 Dope QueensA birthday crown for Jessica Williams and a tiara for 2 Dope Queens co-host Phoebe Robinson at their show, which also happened to be Williams’ birthday and featured a surprise guest (who also happens to be a former boss). This New York Times profile covers that night and discusses this podcast and ladies fave of mine; here’s to them recording an episode when I am in New York next month. *insert prayer hands emoji*

TV Instagram is busy again with a lot of shows back from hiatus and this week’s behind the scenes highlights include Jane the VirginYou’re the Worst and iZombie. Plus we have TCA style, Rachel Bloom’s male gaze take on casting notices and a Sex and the City project I do want to see.

 

Joining the ranks of those returning to work is the Jane the Virgin cast and there is a notable person sitting at that table.

We're baaaaack…. #janethevirgin #season3

More Jane the Virgin delights with almost hat twins Yael Grobglas and Gina Rodriguez. It looks like someone will be wearing a wig for at least the start of the season.

Goodbye hiatus beard. See you soon @cwjanethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

While we’re on the subject of changing hair and it will come as no surprise that I love a good hiatus beards, but there is not much that can be done to hide this level of grizzle. For Justin Baldoni the beard now only exists in the form of old photos and future hiatus dreams.

Here's the casting breakdown for the male characters of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" written with a male gaze.

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

 

After posting a photo of the super depressing casting notices from Backstage, Rachel Bloom wrote some very similar sounding descriptions for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend characters but with a male gaze. “Singing a plus.”

It was announced at TCA that Transparent season 3 will return Friday, September 23 and I’m looking forward to seeing this family again.

 

From one stylish TV family to an even more stylish TV family and the cast of Black-ish at TCA.

Another installment of my series: "Watching 'Sex and the City' at 2 In The Morning." In short, Charlotte is ig about not giving head. Like you don't have to treat dining on the sauseege like it's your fav flav of Ben & Jerry's. Like nothing compares to Ben & Jer – a'doy – but to say I'M NEVER GIVING BLOWJOBS and expect a guy to view the rest of his life sans beejs as anything but the series of unfortunate events that Lemony Snicket lived thru is dumb. If you want a guy to eat your Morimorto- prepared soosh (sushi) aka vajeen, then your mouth needs to roam his dome the way that Julie Andrews roamed and rolled up on them in hills in "The Sound Of Music." #SexAndTheCity #SATC #OralSexIsForEverybody #BeAGoodCitizenOfThisPlanetAndGobbleOnSomeEggplant

Keeping with the sunglasses trend and adding a big dose of “holy crap this is adorable” from Lucy Liu with her son Rockwell on the set of Elementary.

 

Fun getting ready pictures of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ trip to the White House last night from hair stylist Brian Magallones. Cue every Russian spy joke ever and it would appear that the Obamas are fans of The Americans as they scored a prime spot at the state dinner table. Excellent dress choice by Keri Russell and a nice prelude to the Emmys next month.

I did a thing….. 💆🏼

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

Sometimes a hiatus beard happens (see Matthew Rhys) and other times in between seasons a different dye job is the thing (or this could be work related). Regardless, from this obscured shot the blonde looks great on Sophie Turner.

Oh there’s more dancing.

And sneaky eating. Craft service would easily be my downfall. Just look at all those pastries.

There have been a lot of missteps on UnREAL this season including keeping Rachel and Quinn apart and at loggerheads. The end of this week’s episode included a really satisfying moment that doesn’t erase everything that has come before it, but it felt good to see them together again. Also this is a really nice photo of Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby.

 

Joining the shows that are no longer on summer break; New Girl.

Back at work and it feels so good slash productive. #superflexible #bevhills90210 #aahndrea @lastmanfox season 3

Last Man on Earth is also back from hiatus and January Jones continues her reign as Insta Queen.

Last day shooting in Hannah's apartment. Ever. Feelings all around.

And in shows/onscreen pairings that I miss we have Diane Kruger and Demián Bichir back on The Bridge.

 

For a closer look at some of the Emmy nominated costumes including this personal fave head to the Costume Designers Guild Awards page for a lot more treats.

Looking forward to talk about motorcycles and stuff on @thetalkcbs today! #harleyandthedavidsons

This photo of Michiel Huisman led to a very fun conversation about dudes in sweaters on Twitter last week and I thank him for that much needed break from work.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

21 Jul

Some Emmy nomination related posts, Instagram style highs and casts returning to set are all on the agenda this week.

 

The Wine Show is coming to Hulu August 13 and get ready for the Matthews in full cheeky scamp mode with a big dose of dad jokes and puns. It is wonderful.

 

The Looking movie airs this Sunday and while I am so not ready to be over (a thing I keep repeating in relation to this project) I am excited to feel all the feelings. Frankie J. Alvarez is doing a very good job in preparing me.

 

Chris Geere looks back to season 1 premiere of You’re the Worst and it isn’t too long until Gretchen and Jimmy will be back on our screens. *insert prayer hands emoji here*

This pretty much sums @maybeayacash in between takes #youretheworst

Now to the present with Aya Cash eating and reading (great book choice).

 

Lots of fall show casts are back on set and Vincent Rodriguez III from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gives good hot weather hydration reminders (my apartment is a sweatbox so I definitely need to do this).

Yay! "Settle for Me" is nominated for Emmy!

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

 

So Rachel Bloom didn’t get the acting nomination I was hoping for and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend missed out on Best Comedy, but they did score song and choreography nods for “Settle for Me” (and two other dance numbers).

 

While we’re on the subject of Emmys; I was very excited for this and while I wasn’t in a Panera, I maybe did let out a bit (okay a lot) of a scream.

 

Emilia Clarke celebrates the Game of Thrones supporting actress category domination – sad to see no Sophie Turner – with a look at the not so glamorous nature of set life.

 

And Maisie Williams does so with this cute and terrifying video.

 

Also in the supporting category is Constance Zimmer (if only Shiri Appleby could have been nominated in the lead category too) wearing this fabulous dress from the UnREAL season 2 episode “Infiltration.”

Great to see this one. We're back suckas. #elementary #season5

Another returning to set photo and it is good to see Jonny Lee Miller back all buttoned up with Lucy Liu looking as flawless as ever on Elementary.

 

Any hot sauce for the iZombie cast?

I mean I did have fun as a brunette…

A post shared by Gina Rodriguez (@hereisgina) on

 

Gina Rodriguez continues her summer of excellent hair changes while on hiatus going blonde and crushing it with those funky sunglasses.

Flowers and Afros.

Danielle Brooks wins the Best Style on Instagram this week with this beautiful look.

 

I know this barefoot walk so well. An unsurprisingly very fabulous outfit from Mindy Kaling.

Ending things this week with a fun one from Chelsea Peretti and Andre Braugher gives great flat cap.
