Style of Thrones: Cersei’s New Twin

This post contains spoilers for the Game of Thrones episode “First of His Name”.

I have always admired the costumes of Game of Thrones and I have often wanted to discuss them in some depth but I have never been compelled to until I saw this:

Oberyn and Cersei

There are layers and layers of truths shared in this scene between familial enemies Oberyn Martell and Cersei Lannister. Both players have hidden and not so hidden agendas. There are veiled threats and open secrets on each side. Oberyn wants to kill Lannisters, and all the Lannisters know it. Cersei wants to kill kind of everyone, but at the moment mostly Tyrion, and she will do whatever she has to to make it happen. Oberyn is proud of the gilded cage his family has Myrcella in. Through him Cersei gifts her daughter a boat that she may as well have named Escape Clause. But in the midst of all this scheming and deceiving, they are connected. They are alike.

Olivia Style (Escapades in Leathers Jackets)

It’s Fringe Friday and tonight we will be treated to this:

a still from Fringe, Olivia Dunham, arms crossed, wearing a leather jacket and looking like a BAMF

I saw this still and immediately went looking for that jacket.

Here’s what I found: Read the rest of this entry »


Ruby Style (Ready-to-Wear: Red Riding Hood)

This post contains spoiler images from Once Upon a Time 2.4 The Crocodile.

Red Riding Hood is one of the easier characters to RTW. All you really need is something red and hooded. And Ruby (the stunning Meghan Ory) on Once Upon a Time pulls it off without even the hood by sticking to the red, black, and white color palette. It’s nearing Halloween and I’m going to NYCC this weekend so for this post I put together a cosplay version of Ruby’s look in the upcoming episode “The Crocodile”. I got the details from promotional pictures so this would not be considered a spoiler free post (though I don’t expect you can get much PLOT out of this). Here’s the outfit:

And here’s the set:

Katy Perry is her own superteam.

Katy Perry didn’t pull off just one cracktastic outfit at the VMAs. She pulled off FIVE. She’s like if Jerrica Benton decided she was tired of dealing with the rest of her band and got Synergy to make her into ALL the Holograms, not just Jem:

She spins me right round, baby! Like a record!

Kneel before Blake Lively.

Ladies and gentleman, I bring you General Zod:

Blake is filming Gossip Girl. But I saw this and I did not think Serena, I thought Dark Power Girl. I thought Ursa. I thought OMG I HAVE TO POST THAT IMMEDIATELY.

Flashback Friday: January Jones

You’ve heard the news. Betty Draper is the new Emma Frost in X-Men First Class. Or January Jones is, but at least 80% of the announcements called her Betty first, January second (and the last 20% had lines about January Frosting. So clever, right?). On the surface, Emma and Betty are quite similar. Underneath the surface they are nothing alike, and that makes it all the more interesting.

It is very unclear to me (and I’d venture a guess, to EVERYONE) what this movie is about. Emma Frost is not a “First Class” X-Men (meaning one of the first members of the team, whether or not she is First Class meaning awesome is up for debate and something of a polarizing topic for many fans — another similarity to Betty Draper, I’ll add). My favourite Emma is actually found in her solo title that featured her early years (circa First Class) but who knows what Emma this Emma is going to be so who knows if January is a good fit!

But we can discuss her LOOK.

I would like to be Anna Torv’s Stylist (Comic-Con)

Fringe‘s Anna Torv is beautiful, that’s just fact. And Olivia Dumham’s fashion is almost as fierce as Olivia Dunham is.

Spy Style: Piper Perabo

I have a thing for spies. All spies, any spies. And I have nearly as big a thing for spy style. Think of James Bond, Michael Westen, Sydney Bristow, La Femme Nikita — style is a significant part of being a spy and I don’t just mean presentation. I also mean shoes.

Piper Perabo sported these Christian Louboutin pumps in the pilot of USA’s new spytastic series Covert Affairs. If you haven’t seen it you obviously don’t watch USA because it was on every other hour for the last week. And cleverly enough these shoes showed up again on USA’s Burn Notice cinching that the shoes make the spy. Or at least make the spy look spytastic.

Magical Emma Watson

The new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer has me, just like everyone, ENORMOUSLY EXCITED. I love, love, love Harry Potter, books and film — I consider them parallel universes so I can enjoy each on its own merits. Of which there are THOUSANDS. And if Hermione must be considered allegorical to Bella (Wrong! Harry is the comparative to Bella, Hermione is probably Jacob because Ron has to be Edward and the rest of the Cullens are the rest of the Weasleys. But IF, as has been done A LOT –) Hermione LAUGHS (politely) and Bella walks off sulkingly because that’s all Bella does.

Anyway. As was pointed out to me by spudsfan, about a minute in to the trailer we have this:

OMG, y’all. Hermione is Zatanna!!

Fools, Fish, Fringe and Fashion!

Hey all, it’s April 1st. Which people like to call April Fool’s Day:

I might have to change my mind about Katy Perry wanting to be in the Aquaman movie. She clearly really wants to be Harley Quinn. That’s her at Perez Hilton’s birthday bash. Here she is at the Today Show:
