Costume designer Daniel Lawson on his 'Good Wife' inspired clothing line

Fans of The Good Wife may have to wait until March for new episodes, but they can get their fashion fix later this month thanks to a new clothing line by series costume designer Daniel Lawson.

The Emmy-nominated Lawson teamed up with Andrea Cohen of British label Number 35 to create a collection of business professional clothes that echoes the show’s tailored, boardroom style.

“My experience on The Good Wife inspired me and inspired us. How could it not after doing it for so long?” Lawson told EW of the line, which will include blazers, pencil skirts, trousers, and shift dresses in basic solids like red, blue, and black. “I wanted it to be clean, elegant, chic, strong, but still feminine. That’s what I do on The Good Wife.”

Priced from £225.00 ($369.45 US) to £850.00 ($1395.78), the pieces are currently available for pre-order on the 35-DL website and will ship January 31st. Lawson and Cohen are already working on the label’s next collection. “With 35-DL, it was about longevity and not just a capsule,” Lawson said. We’ll do several collections and [we hope] to have a long marriage.”

Read on for an exclusive Q&A with Lawson — including what you can expect when the show returns — and a first look at the 35-DL collection.


'Sleepy Hollow' stars talk Ichabod's skinny jeans encounter

Ichabod Crane rocked skinny jeans in this week’s Sleepy Hollow and though the moment was shortlived, we certainly enjoyed it. The same can’t be said for the displaced soldier, though, who made his displeasure well known — a reaction actor Nicole Beharie, who plays baddie-fighter A/Ichabod-ally Abbie, jokingly says she didn’t appreciate.

“I was hoping he’d been a little bit more open to the clothes that Abbie spent all of her hard-earned money buying for him so that he could smell fresh and clean,” she told EW this past week during the Television Critics Association press tour. “I don’t care what he has on, to be honest. As long as he’s clean.”

Don’t look for Ichabod to be squeezing into jeans again any time before the end of the season, which wraps up Monday with a two-hour finale. (But we’re keeping our fingers crossed for more jeans in season 2!)

'Girls' creator Lena Dunham lands the cover of Vogue's February issue

Lena Dunham has been crowned “The New Queen of Comedy” by Vogue.

The creator and star of Girls appears on the cover of the fashion magazine’s February issue, which hits newsstands on January 28.

“Since Girls launched in 2012, the 27-year-old Dunham has become to comic television roughly what Bob Dylan was to sixties folk,” writes Nathan Heller, who later calls the actress “a model of industry.” Heller shadowed Dunham on the set of her HBO show during filming of season three and later visited her Brooklyn Heights apartment, which he describes as “concertedly unostentatious.”

The cover story also addresses the way Girls confronts the issue of sexuality and, by extension, nudity. It’s a topic that caused the show’s producers to go into a ‘rage spiral’ after a journalist asked Dunham why her character “is often naked at random times for no reason” during a panel at Television Critics Association press tour last week. Zosia Mamet — who plays the youngest member of the Girls foursome — tells Heller of Dunham’s nude scenes; “She’s not being naked just for the sake of being naked.”

Rumors of a Dunham Vogue cover have been circulating since last fall, but this isn’t her first appearance in the fashion monthly. READ FULL STORY

Hayden Panettiere and Edie Falco bought off-the-rack dresses for the Golden Globes

In Hollywood, what you wear on the red carpet usually depends on where you fall in the celebrity hierarchy. The most sought-after designers want to dress the stars who will get the most exposure. The bigger the star, the more she’ll be photographed and interviewed, and the greater the odds that what she wore will be discussed by both professional and armchair fashion critics in the days, weeks, and sometimes years to come.

So if you’re not, as Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen once told me, “famous enough,” good luck getting the dress of your dreams.

For the Golden Globes, Hayden Panettiere reportedly took fashion matters into her own hands, wearing a $10,000 black-and-white Tom Ford gown that she bought off-the-rack.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever worn him, because I’ve been begging,” Panettiere told E!’s Giuliana Rancic on the Globes red carpet. “I feel sexy in it, I feel comfortable in it, and I’m in Tom Ford. I would wear a plastic bag if it was designed by him.”

The actress’ gushing remarks were certainly complimentary of the designer, but was paying retail for her dress a major fashion faux pas? READ FULL STORY

Makeup Artist Ve Neill on the 'Face Off' premiere and working on 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay'

Season six of the reality makeup competition series Face Off premieres tonight, and Syfy is billing it as the “boldest and most extreme season to date.”

We caught up with one of the show’s judges, makeup artist Ve Neill, to find out what to expect.

“Everybody is going to be really surprised. I think we have some amazing artists this year,” said Neill, who called in from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay set — she’s served as makeup department head for all of the Hunger Games movie adaptations — in Georgia. “So many of the artists knocked it out of the park. They did incredible creations, far beyond anything we’ve seen before on the show. It’s going to be a great season.” The newest crop of Face Off contestants are competing for $100,000 in cash, a VIP vacation from sponsor Kryolan Professional Make-Up, and a 2014 Fiat.

Now that she’s wrapped filming Face Off, Neill told EW that she’s consumed with work on the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. “It’s going to be pretty spectacular. Julianne Moore is on with us now as President Coin and she’s great. We have quite a few new characters who’ve joined us,” she hinted. “They’re all wonderful to work with. Jennifer [Lawrence] and Josh [Hutcherson] are absolute dolls. It’s nice to have a group of actors who enjoy coming to work.”

Read on to see what else the makeup artist had to say about the new season of Face Off and the next installment of The Hunger Games.

'Orphan Black' star Tatiana Maslany on her Golden Globes look: 'This could be glam clone'

Lupita Nyong’o may have gotten the lion’s share of attention, but another actress made an impressive awards season red carpet debut at Sunday’s Golden Globes.

Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, a nominee in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama, glittered in a beaded platinum gown from British designer Jenny Packham’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

The inspiration behind Maslany’s ensemble?

“I wanted to be as far away from the look of a psycho Ukrainian murderer,” joked the 28 year-old actress. READ FULL STORY

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Kyle Richards on her HSN clothing line and season 4 drama

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is capitalizing on her reality TV fame with a new clothing line for shopping network HSN.

The Bravolebrity is releasing an eight-piece collection inspired by her personal style. Items in the Kyle by Kyle Richards line are priced between $69.90 and $199.90. The collection debuts February 25th on HSN.com.

“The number one question I was asked [was]: ‘Do you have your own line?'” Richards told EW. ” I’d always thought about it. Then I started having dreams and when I would wake up, I had [designed] a piece of clothing in my head. I’d never done that in my life, so I thought it was a sign.”

Richards talked to EW about her fashion favorites, whether she’ll be back for another season of RHoBH, and recent run-ins with former Housewives Adrienne Maloof, Taylor Armstrong, and Camille Grammar. Read on for all the details and get a sneak peek at her HSN collection.


Golden Globes: Did Elisabeth Moss put an end to the E! red carpet Mani Cam?

Did Elisabeth Moss’ one finger salute put an end to the E! red carpet Mani Cam?

After successfully rolling out the Glam Cam 360 and the Stiletto Cam, E! upped the ante on their total body coverage with the debut of the Mani Cam at the 2012 Emmys. Inspired by Zooey Deschanel’s quirky nail art, the high-tech diorama was designed to offer an extreme close-up of stars’ manicures against the backdrop of a scaled-down E!-branded step and repeat.

But after Elisabeth Moss gave the camera a well-polished one finger salute at last night’s Golden Globes, some wondered if this was the end of the Mani Cam.

After Giuliana Rancic encouraged the Golden Globe nominee to stick her digits in the box, Moss hesitated. “I did this last time. There’s something I wanted to do last time, but I’m not going to do it,” she said. Rancic’s reply; “Do it! C’mon, do it! This is E! We’re in 160 countries!”

So Moss flipped the bird, causing Rancic and the E! team to fly into a minor red carpet panic. Now that the actress had demonstrated that the Mani Cam was the perfect platform for vulgar hand signs, would E! have to shut it down? READ FULL STORY

Sofia Vergara's Golden Globes dress swap: Before or after-party? -- POLL

Most nominees slip into something more comfortable before they hit the after-party circuit — not Sofia Vergara.

The Modern Family star tried something new for the red carpet, arriving at the ceremony wearing a dark, romantic Zac Posen ballgown. Once the show was over, Vergara changed into a sexy, beaded Zuhair Murad mermaid gown.

Vergara’s second dress got nearly as much attention as the first, and not just because of the cleavage-baring plunging neckline. The actress posed for pictures at post-show parties hosted by HBO, NBC/Universal, InStyle/Warner Bros., and Fox/FX.

Which of Vergara’s dresses do you like best? Cast your vote in the poll below. READ FULL STORY

Is a celebrity ever obligated to say yes to a dress?

There weren’t many fashion disasters at last night’s Golden Globes, but there were a couple of major disappointments, most notably Jennifer Lawrence and Zoe Saldana. Was bad taste to blame, or were there other forces at play?

“I’m wearing Dior. I wanted to surprise… do a shocker,” Lawrence told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. Was it just a tongue-in-cheek quip, or was it the actress’ way of saying that she didn’t have the option of choosing something from another label? READ FULL STORY
