Emily VanCamp at “An Evening with Revenge”

Posted on March 05, 2013

Y’know, we’d like an evening with Revenge. Then we’d like a night with Relaxing and perhaps a morning with Recriminations, to be followed by an afternoon with Retail.

Emily VanCamp attends Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ An Evening with “Revenge” in North Hollywood, California.

Oh, Miss Emily. We bear the standard for the cause of red carpet ladypants, but you are not helping our argument, dear.

In real life it’s less of an issue, but when you’re being photographed, you should never wear competing blacks. Inevitably, one of them is going to look cheaper than the other in pictures. While we like the idea of a short, kicky jacket, this one just looks proportionally wrong. It comes up so high on her waist that it makes her arms look too long. Plus, a pair of skinny pants like that needs something a little more substantial than a pharmacist’s jacket. Also, the shoes and blouse are boring as hell. A metallic or boldly colored blouse (possibly even a print or polka dot), a more substantial jacket, and some booties would have sent this off to the land of Perfect.

As it is, it’s more like something one wears to the office on the last day before laundry day.
