Part 1 of 2 – Pre-Nuptials
How do you celebrate your mutual loathing and prediliction for blackmail and criminal behaviour? Why with a small, not too fussy wedding in the Hamps of course! But “nothing fancy” in Grayson land involves couture and an arrest. Naturally, the arrest is all part of Emily’s revengin’, which is back on track with the return of a suspicious Mason Treadwell. Nothing stops a snooping reporter like getting a body off ice and framing another man for the murder. Anyone else stoked to find out how that’s going to play out?
MEANWHILE, Single White Mom continues to haunt Grayson manor, the bar is opening under shady dealings AND Jack proposes to Fauxmanda. Obvs she accepts – a girl’s gotta hitch her wagon to something other than Emily.
Another day, another gala to prepare for. In fact, no one even blinks an eye that custom Vera Wangs are being delivered around the neighbourhood. And everyone – even Queen V – is looking pretty ho-hum about it. Ems is even chilling out in a t-shirt, all Revenge casual.
This is the most laid back I think we’ve ever seen her. Of course, my guess is Fauxmanda’s tee comes from Target and Emily’s somehow still cost ten times that. It’s that thing about being rich where even your old t-shirt is fancy.
Or your hoodie. Ems goes from Get-Your-Story-Straight-Bitch Casual to Murder Casual:
Single White Mom goes for a different kind of everyday look, bringing back the housedress as a style statement.
A touch of navy to hover over Queen V as she prepares to marry Conrad again.
And then something a bit more light and airy, mixed with denim, for a spot of drawing on the beach and glaring in the direction of the plotting balcony.
Whoa, Fauxmanda, is that you? Didn’t this bitch spit out a baby like two seconds ago? You’d never know from how tightly she’s cinched that skinny belt.
Her girly, ruffled look is decidedly Charlotte-ish. Spending time with her half-“sister” must be rubbing off. And considering the Daisy Dukes of yore, the influence is a welcome one.
Charlotte is doing girly as well this week, as per usual.
I think she’s often undecided if she’s going to be petulant teen who pouts and dates the boy from the wrong side of the tracks or if she’s going to be a grown-up Grayson who likes to plot and blackmail. This week it’s petulant. Votes on next week?
Up at Chez Grayson, casual is done a little differently. Victoria goes for classy in a cream coloured sweater while she spends some time looking at pictures of her former lover (also the former husband of Single White Mom).
You guys. I’m shocked. Not only is she out of a bandage dress, but she’s wearing a sweater. A beautiful sweater. But a sweater nonetheless. And sweaters are not usually her jam. But she looks absolutely lovely.
It almost softens her… until she gets back into the satin and makes faces that scare small children and I remember she’s not all that soft.
Emily continues to work her way through the rainbow, looking fabulous in every primary colour she can find. This week, she rocks canary yellow at NolCorp – the Hamptons elite know how to do summer in the office.
I don’t love the cut, but I do love the colour. We have yet to find any colour this girl can’t pull off.
Much like Nolan’s collar-pops show our Revenge(!!!) Threat Level, I think when Emily wears bright colours, it indicates she’s missing Nolan. Because, come on, her buddy in Revenging is always a master class in colour coordination.
The fantastic green shoes are no accident. There’s some subtle green stripes in the shirt, and check the belt.
Well played, Nolan.
However, he needs to talk to the CFO/girlfriend about her use of colour, or ditch her.
The dress isn’t horrible, it’s just boring and reminds me a little of Kate Middleton’s engagement dress. Which, let’s face it, is so pre-nuptual.
Padma needs to embrace colour like the never-not-fab Ashley embraces this orange DVF dress.
Like Emily, I’m convinced there isn’t a colour she can’t wear. Although, did this scene seem a little weird to you? Is she Daniel’s GF, or his personal assistant? She just popped in long enough to do up his shirt, then hurried off once he was dressed. I can’t imagine Emily being treated that way when she was hot-and-heavy with Daniel.
There’s something off about the A/C in Grayson Global HQ this week, considering Ashley’s wearing that cute mini while Mr. Sexy Revengepants is in a full three-piece suit. Either Ashley is freezing or Aiden’s about to break out in a sweat.
Verdict: she’s freezing. But that’s okay because I’m loving the suit. The devil is in the details and I’m loving the subtle plaid.
Speaking of possibly being overdressed for the weather, this is still summer, non? Because Mason must have an internal coolant system that isn’t human.
Sweater vest and jacket in summer? Mr. Treadwell, how do you not have heat stroke?
Meanwhile, on the wrong side of the tracks: these guys.
I can hear the conversation now:
“Declan, do you ever feel like we’re pawns in a game we didn’t even know we’re playing?”
“Uhhhh…I go this shirt at American Apparel.”
“What? Nevermind. I’m just going to serve a customer and wait for shit to happen to me.”
“Nice chambray, bro.”
