Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 Feb

A mostly New York Fashion week edition of “Out of the Box” with plenty of famous faces flocking to runway shows to find out what they will be wearing come the next red carpet cycle/in their regular lives – they can probably afford the price tags.

This was going to be an all NYFW offering, but as I didn’t cover the BAFTAs (for other work/travel reasons) I wanted to include a couple of dresses from this event which wowed me.Diane Kruger, Jamie King, Jennifer HudsonIt’s New York in February and temperatures are on the chilly side so a coat casually slung over the shoulders is always a good choice and both Diane Kruger and Jennifer Hudson have opted for this at Jason Wu. If this was me I would definitely struggle with keeping it straight on my shoulders (you should see my oh so wonky gown graduation pictures). This is a fun blend of looks with Jennifer Hudson wearing the very on trend leather, Diane looking cool in cornflower blue and Jamie King rounding out the picture in a dress ideal for a weekend away in the country at Downton Abbey type venue.Claire DanesA beautiful and simple shot of Claire Danes watching the Narciso Rodriguez runway show on Tuesday. Kiernan Shipka, Amadla Stenberg, Marc JacobsThe Marc Jacobs presentation was packed last night and whenever I see a front row like this I just assume that this is the first time most of them are meeting each other. Not the case with our favorite teen BFFs Amandla Stenberg and Kiernan Shipka. Andra Day’s movie themed ensemble is super fun and that’s a whole lot of excellent bold lip colors from Day, Ashley Benson and Odeya Rush.  Amandla StenbergA clearer look at Amandla Stenberg’s fabulous Marc Jacobs ‘Scream Queens‘ skirt – Olivia Wilde wore the dress version recently – and pairing it with sneakers adds to the laid back vibe.Natasha Lyonne and Christina RicciWhile Stenberg’s gone for sneakers (a woman after my own flats loving heart) there are a lot of stacked platforms on display and I’m maybe coveting Christina Ricci’s ‘Edie Mary Jane‘ patent delights. There’s also something a little Wednesday Addams about her whole outfit and I’m so here for Natasha Lyonne’s bold red (pleather?) skirt.Juliet LewisJuliette Lewis looking like the coolest golfer that ever lived at Marc Jacobs. The pants maybe need a little hemming, but as someone who couldn’t see their shoes for the first half of the aughts I am also fine with this.Zosia Mamet - Marc JacobsSee the above comment about the pants and ribbons/ascots/scarves are really making a big swing for Fall 2016 with Zosia Mamet also working prints at Marc Jacobs. Ellie, Zosia, FriedaMore Zosia at the Kate Spade New York presentation – we picked out some outfits for Shoshanna in our Kate Spade Fantasy Costuming piece – and more excellent patterned attire. Posing with Ellie Kemper and Freida Pinto the trio stuck to the monochrome department rather than going for the bright Kate Spade color palette. Zoe Kazan Kate SpadeAdding a splash of color in a super pretty floral ensemble is Zoe Kazan proving that black tights can be worn with something this summer looking. It is still February after all.Zoe KazanMore Zoe Kazan and the Jill Stuart frock she gave a sneak peek look at on Instagram and I feel like I have very similar clothing taste to Kazan; this is right in my dress wheelhouse. And tights. I love tights.Naomie Harris - Michael KorsNaomie Harris was a knockout during the Spectre press tour last year and once again she is killing it at the Michael Kors Collection show in Michael Kors. Pink pumps add a touch of flair to this floral delight.Taraji P. Henson and Zoe KravitzWhile I still haven’t come up with a suitable term to describe something more than #SquadGoals here is the non-selfie version of Taraji P. Henson and Zoe Kravitz on the front row at Alexander Wang still looking super cool. Henson looked stunning in Alexander Wang at the recent Golden Globes and this is brand which suits her style well while avoiding any Cookie comparisons.Julia GarnerAlso at Alexander Wang – Julia Garner somehow looking cute and edgy all at once in leather. No word if she will be back for season 4 of The Americans but no doubt if she is then expect plenty of heartbreak.Alicia VikanderMore leather and Alicia Vikander’s BAFTA Louis Vuitton frock is a weighty 35 lbs. The last three big events has seen Vikander wearing a variety of looks from the brand she models for and I cannot wait to see what they have in store for her a week on Sunday. It’s weird to think award season is almost at an end.Cate BlanchettCate Blanchett also cranks it up a gear for the BAFTAs in a stunning Alexander McQueen dress of two halves and each one is just as spectacular as the other.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

17 Feb

That very busy time of year when it is not only New York Fashion Week, but the awards keep on coming and shows are returning/are deep into their filming schedule. It is good for “Behind the Insta-Scenes” as there is plenty of variety this week.

One week! We psyched!

Happy Broad City Day! We are very excited to have Abbi and Ilana back on TV and this picture of a Polaroid is a delight (and means I am no longer questioning the times when I have posted a photo of a Polaroid).

On Earth-2, Iris has super wide legged pants and I am so here for this futuristic retro look.

 

Meanwhile Grant Gustin is also moonlighting over on Supergirl; Gustin and Melissa Benoist do look very good together. I really need to catch up on Supergirl before this episode happens.

 

This episode. Ultimate Valentine’s Day sobs.

 

Tyra might have a few pointers, but I give this picture a 10 with the added bonus of more Lucca Quinn patterned costuming treats.

 

Constance Zimmer’s very on point sweater this weekend gets extra points for the Galentine’s tag (and now I’m sad I forgot to include Rachel and Quinn in this post – next year).

 

There needs to be a word for something that is even more than just #SquadGoals when hangouts like this one take place.

 

NYFW is all over Instagram including many runway shots and this one from The Cut’s Stella Bugbee captures the fluidity and pretty from the Altuzarra show.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Jan

My Name is Jonas” has been stuck in my head all week and there is a very obvious reason for this as social media has been awash with a blizzard by a certain name. So yes, plenty of snow pics from this edition of Behind the Insta-Scenes. Plus Sundance, red lipstick (insert emoji here), guests stars, that touted Friends reunion and more.

Snow plus dogs equals all the adorable especially when the dog is also dressed for the occasion. Cush Jumbo’s fur hood/gloves/big scarf continues the theme of all things winter wear this week on TV Ate My Wardrobe.

Russell Tovey’s dog Rocky has snow shoes and I can’t even with how cute this is. Rocky does not seem thrilled by this weather.

 

Diane Kruger attempts a potentially perilous jump in the air snow pic and if I attempted this the likelihood of sticking the landing would be slim. Excellent coats and mittens choice (wouldn’t expect anything less). What we really want to know is who took the photo?

Snow day.

This is definitely too much tune. Also I wonder how often this happens to John Mulaney and Nick Kroll.

 

Fair.

 

Jane the Virgin and My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend both returned this week and to celebrate the casts had a joint viewing party.

 

Broad City is back in under a month (February 17!) and this just got me even more excited.

 

Grant Gustin knows he has no chill.

 

Get ready for more Rami Malek in Dior. A brand which has already served him very well.

 

This Scandal director has me all kinds of excited.

 

From TCA part 1 of a catch me if you can shot with Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich.

 

And part 2 (it looks better in grid formation on Instagram), Photographer Maarten de Boer also has a whole lot of excellent Sundance pics.

Best of the Emmy Red Carpet – Bold Color and Print

21 Sep

Pink was not the only color on the Emmy red carpet and this is one of the brightest and boldest displays in recent years with a lot less monochromatic offerings. We’ve given you sparkle, now here are some patterned treats.

Ellie KemperEllie Kemper didn’t get nominated for The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but she more than makes up for this in a stunning multi-color Naeem Khan dress; definitely a top 5 pick.

Zoe KazanBetween Ellie Kemper and Zoe Kazan I am getting rather mesmerized by their frocks; Kazan’s red and white Miu Miu is perfect for her twee styling, which I adore. Red lipstick points ahoy!

Laverne CoxA flawless look for Laverne Cox in a teal Calvin Klein Collection dress.

Mindy KalingCanary gowns will forever have to stand up to the Best Oscar Gown and Mindy Kaling’s custom Salavador Perez is definitely striking and the highlight of the 2015 Emmy yellow frock push.

Lauren LapkusThe pattern, cut and color is gorgeous on Lauren Lapkus and I would love it if she returned to Orange is the New Black.

Kristen SchaalKristen Schaal and Lauren Lapkus could definitely play sisters and someone should get on that. Meanwhile Kristen Schaal is resplendent in shimmering Rubin Singer.

Judith LightJudith Light slaying in floral Zac Posen.

Maggie GyllenhaalGoing for big colorful ball gown Oscar de la Renta and Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn’t over accessorize this already dramatic look.

Kiernan ShipkaWe’ve entered the “I don’t know why Dior keep doing this” portion and I’m including this to show that Kiernan Shipka is very much a Magical Fashion Unicorn, but she deserves so much better than this.

January JonesThe same can be said for January Jones and she is certainly working the Ulyana Sergeenko Couture jumpsuit, but the draping is causing me to pull all kinds of confused faces. The color and brooch are stunning and yet I really wish this was a dress or a slightly more tailored jumpsuit.

January and ElisabethIn fact from behind it looks better and this shot with former co-star Elisabeth Moss is giving me all the feelings.

Danielle BrooksA twirling dream from Danielle Brooks in pleated custom Christian Siriano. Whenever I wear a pleated skirt or dress I spend half my day twirling. I don’t get much done.

Emily RobinsonThe cut of Emily Robinson’s Kayat gown reminds me of Caitlin Fitzgerald at the Golden Globes and it is working just as well for Robinson in this delicate print.

Chelsea Peretti and Jordan PeeleBest couple alert! A fun floral contrast from Chelsea Peretti in Gabriela Cadena and Jordan Peele doing the standard tuxedo thing.

Teyonah ParrisTeyonah Parris twirls in Francesca Miranda polka dots in this stunning mid-action shot.

Viola Davis EmmyClosing our Emmy gown rundown with THE moment of the night and Viola Davis winning Best Actress in a Drama. The Carmen Marc Valvo dress is amazing, her speech is better and you can watch it below.

For all our Emmy red carpet highlights head here and here.

Best of the Pre-Emmys Parties – The Frocks

19 Sep

If the pre-Emmys parties are anything to go on then we are in for a treat tomorrow as there are plenty of fabulous outfits on display from #LadySuitWatch2015 to the patterned and super chic dresses below. There’s a strong element of fun at these parties as everyone is relaxed (or at least pretending to be) prior to the big show. This color, print and the caped sleeves makes Troian Bellisario an instant standout. Plus she’s pulling off what could be an awkward length. Plenty of fantastic cute above the knee frocks including Constance Zimmer’s long sleeve black and white floral delight. Currently suffering from UnREAL withdrawal.More florals and an 80s prom feel from Sarah Hyland in Oscar de la Renta. All this needs to complete this theme (or probably doesn’t) is a giant bow. Pockets! And a romantic take on this on trend from Grey’s Anatomy’s Camilla Luddington wearing an A.L.C. dress and Stuart Weitzman heels. Tina Majorino is still rocking one of my fave short hair styles (and I might be biased, but I love a short haircut) and she looks flawless in embellished metallics. A lace delight from Zoe Lister-Jones and a berry lip color I’m now adding to my Wish List (when I find out the shade/brand).   Zoe Kazan’s dress is a patchwork perfection and bf Paul Dano looks dashing in all the brown with a hint of blue. I got Olive Kitteridge on DVD (yes I still get those) for my birthday and I’m really looking forward to having my heart broken all over again. The amazing colourful prints continue with Yvette Nicole Brown in Eliza J. Color blocks for Erinn Hayes and this is giving me all the 70s really cool party vibes. Another ensemble that’s reading my favorite fashion decade (I’m so fine with the heavy 70s influence right now) and Maggie Gyllenhaal needs a cocktail to complete this look.  Getting a Cabaret feeling from Gwendoline Christie’s robe like dress and only Christie can wear something like this and induce all the gleeful clapping.A fun play on black fit and flare with Jane Krawkowski adding a touch of stripes to a classic style.
 This is a really great silhouette on Christina Hendricks and another black dress triumph. I toyed with putting Danielle Brooks in the #LadySuitWatch2015 post as this Lafayette 148 New York dress is tuxedo inspired, but it doesn’t really matter whichever list Brooks goes on as she looks incredible either way.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

12 Dec

Red carpet dress pretty and a new promo poster for one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s most anticipated new shows for 2015 are all part of this week’s “Out of the Box.”

Agent CarterMarvel unveiled the new Agent Carter poster this week and it is a doozy. There are several reasons why I am looking forward to this show and most of these begin with Hayley Atwell accompanied by a dash of “I can’t wait to see the costuming.” Atwell does have the whole 1940s look down (as can be seen in Any Human Heart, Restless and Captain America of course), but her talents go far beyond retro styling and hopefully Agent Carter is going to showcase her many strengths as a performer.

Kiernan ShipkaKiernan Shipka continues her red carpet reign in Mary Katrantzou at the TrevourLIVE LA event. It is a fun, colourful dress and the textured patterned fabric puts a playful twist on this traditional silhouette.

Rose ByrneAnother frock from the Spring 2015 Mary Katrantzou collection – this designer is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite – and Rose Byrne shines in this dress (and her bob is spectacular) at the Annie premiere; it is why there is no need for accessories and black pumps/tights are the perfect choice to complete this look.

Laverne CoxWhat I’ve learned from Laverne Cox’s “Home for the Holidays” Benefit Concert outfit is my cape love trumps my lack of enthusiasm for sheer and this is a very fun Marc Bouwer dress, which is perfect for this time of year.

Zoe KazanZoe Kazan’s super colorful Novis dress at the Into the Woods premiere doesn’t scream December, but it continues the strong pattern trend this week and makes me feel like I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole. I’m even partial to the chunky buckles on Kazan’s sparkly color block shoes.

Portia de RossiIt is hard to pull off plaid on plaid on plaid and Portia de Rossi is serving up Glen Plaid realness in this Stella McCartney ensemble. The rolled up sleeves, top button done up, black lapels, black accessories and splash of lip color makes it the ideal outfit for a breakfast event as The Hollywood Reporter celebrates Women in Entertainment including Shonda Rhimes.

Emma RobertsThis is a whole lot of pink, but Emma Roberts manages to avoid looking sickly sweet in this Valentino frock. The flared cuffs and floral collar give it a 60s feel and the only thing not working for me is the blah taupe pumps.
