Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

6 Apr

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.

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.


Out of the Box: Look of the Week

13 Dec

It’s another red carpet and public appearance heavy week for Out of the Box as award shows continue to roll by. We also have a fabulous magazine cover featuring two of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s favorite ladies and some outerwear delights courtesy of Mr Porter and a Downton Abbey star.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey EW coverIt’s been a while since I last bought a copy of Entertainment Weekly, that all changes this week as Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are covering and guest editing this week’s issue. The pair are presenting their second consecutive Golden Globe awards and they were easily the highlight of last year’s ceremony. It’s a fun cover (though Amy’s pen did look like a pregnancy test upon first glance, which would have been a bizarre concept choice) and I really like the button/zip details on both of their dresses. No matter who wins (and I have OPINIONS when it comes to the nominations, including yay Amy and Parks!) at least we will have their opening monologue. This is also Amy Poehler’s second magazine cover this week and she looks super awesome (standard) on the cover of Paper.

Claire Danes ValentinoOne surprising omission from the lead female in a drama category is Claire Danes – SO happy for Tatiana Maslany though – and both Homeland and Mad Men have fallen out of favor with the HFPA. Danes has spent this week at a variety of Nobel Peace Prize events in Norway and she looks stunning in this Valentino floral macramé gown. It’s a beautiful dress for this concert event and toning down her hair and makeup makes sense as the multi-color pattern is already incredibly bold. Danes might not have got a Globes nod, but is still looks like she’s had a good week. It’s not all snubs as she received a SAG nomination.

Zawe Ashton

In contrast to Claire Danes’ embellished frock is Fresh Meat’s Zawe Ashton and she attended the British Independent Film Awards in this simple, yet elegant Sarah Baadarani crew neck dove grey gown. While I would have probably gone for a strong lip color, the fresh faced no fuss look works on this occasion. It’s a very striking outfit even against a similarly toned background.

Michelle Dockery Erdem

Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery wore the most exquisite Erdem check and floral coat on Good Morning America this week and it looks like it was needed in that weather. The hint of the orange Carven skirt and white pumps gives a pop of color that complements the strong design of the outerwear. This gets added to the coat covet list (which currently stands at approximately 78 different pieces).

Zachary Quinto

Serving up model realness and more coat delights is Zachary Quinto for Mr Porter. This is from Burberry Prorsum and it is magnificent. The TV Ate My Wardrobe list includes dudes attire so we just hit number 79.
