I couldn’t wait for Revenge to start this season. I love how dramatic everything is down to the last detail. Especially the costumes, it really just ups the drama. As the episode opens we see Emily (Emily VanCamp) take her place as queen of the Hamptons, while Victoria (Madeline Stowe) is relegated to a psychiatric hospital. Emily’s sweeping white dress is the Jaelyn Crossover-Top Cutout Gown by Alice + Olivia ($193.60) or here for $485. This ASOS Pleated Cross Front Maxi ($85.28) is a perfect match:
Nolan (Gabriel Mann) and Emily are gearing up for a Memorial Day weekend party, their first at the manor. Nolan is asking the same question the rest of us are…what will Emily do next? Emily looks Hamptons chic with a Rag & Bone The Simple Tank (sold-out), Vince Rolled Boyfriend Pants ($195), Manolo Blahnik BB Pointy Toe Pump ($595) and Stella & Dot Aria Pendant Necklace ($98).
To recreate this look, I decided on this DKNYC Lightweight Jersey Sleeveless Top w/ Diagonal Chiffon Overlay ($26.99), Jones New York Signature Cropped Capri Pants ($36.99), and these Badgley Mischka Women’s Kat Dress Pumps ($78.82):
Later on in the city, Emily gets in a little fender bender with someone in town, who we will eventually come to know as Nancy (Alicia Lagano). In town, Emily throws on a Boy by Band of Outsiders Blazer (sold out). This Banana Republic Navy Lightweight Wool Two-Button Suit Blazer ($198) is similar:
At the Memorial Day party, Emily and Nolan are christening a new boat for one of the Hampton’s elite couples. As they discuss the event, Emily wears a Parker Cosmopolitan Strapless Bustier Maxi Dress (sold out). This Amanda Uprichard Mimosa Strapless Pleated Maxi Dress ($92) is a great match:
You can get a good look in this shot of Emily’s Vince Multi-Bar Hinge Bracelet ($68):
Jack (Nick Wechsler) visits Emily after Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) scares him by picking little Carl up from daycare. Emily reassures him that the reason she stayed in the Hamptons was to make amends with Charlotte. Emily stays casual at home with this Joie Nasa B Tee ($55.20). Since that is almost sold out, this Lucky Brand Women’s Embroidered Tee ($14.85) is similar:
With that lead in, we check in on Charlotte and Daniel (Josh Bowman) and learn that they think Victoria has abandoned them. Emily must be sending them postcards from random places. They have no idea she’s been locked away in an institution. Charlotte wears a Muscle Dress from Haute Hippie ($325). I liked this LAmade Tie Dye Maxi Dress ($44.99) for a look for less:
Emily is taking in the view in Victoria’s old spot, when she sees something moving in her old beach house. It doesn’t seem like she’s been back there since Aiden was murdered. She wears an awesome Dip Dye wool-cashmere sweater by Vince ($328). This Victoria’s Secret Ombre Sweater ($39.99) is similar:
Emily’s party kicks off and is full of drama. Jack brings his new partner with him to the partner and they immediately stumble upon Charlotte doing coke. Jack’s partner wants to arrest her, but Jack convinces him to give her a pass because she’s in a bad place. Charlotte wore a Valentino Strapless Floral Lace Dress (sold out). The color is a little different, but I think this Gabriella Rocha Lorene Dress ($69) is a similar style:
Meanwhile, back at the looney bin, Victoria launches an elaborate escape. It seemed a little far fetched, I mean how far was she going to get on foot? In true Victoria form, she has found a way to look fabulous while doing it in an Escada Crossover Bodice Dress ($1050) and Carolee 40th Anniversary Legacy Collection Earrings ($32). I thought this NY Collection B-Slim Faux-Wrap Dress ($34.99) was a great match:
Back at the party, we learn what Emily is really up to. She can’t let go of revenge, even if its not for herself. At the party she wears a beautiful Carolina Herrera Floral Jacquard Full-Skirt Dress (sold out) and Tamara Mellon Heaven patent-leather pumps (sold out). This dress is such a show stopper that it took me a while to find a suitable alternative, but I found one with this ASOS Vintage Midi Bardot Dress ($161.08) and these Nine West Caress Round Toe High Heels ($79):
Nolan gives Margaux LeMarchal (Karine Vanasse) a tip about why Daniel left the magazine and she finds out that her brother Gideon (Daniel Zovatto) is blackmailing him for control of the company. She looks powerful in her new role as CEO in a yellow and black triangle print dress. I thought this Tiana B. Cap-Sleeve Two-Tone Belted Dress ($39.99) was a great match:
Instead of planning her next move, Victoria goes straight to the manor to confront Emily. As she is leaving, David Clarke (James Tupper) chloroforms her!!!
What did you think of the premiere? Will all of Emily’s carefully laid revenge plans go up in smoke?
