Revenge: its the non-reality, darker, American revision of Made in Chelsea! Hence why Revenge has become one of my new top shows. Here in the UK we are only about 6 episodes in but I am already really into it. Its an interesting show because the protagonist Emily Thorne is not always likeable, she is closed off and cutting but can fake the perfect rich-girl image whenever she needs to be deceitful or pry information. This causes an audience to feel split between supporting Emily's revenge campaign and feeling she is just a little bit crazy and goes too far. Revenge is one of those unique shows where characters are not given the "good guy" "bad guy" labels so much as the line between right and wrong is blurred. I would recommend watching it: bringing up the old question of whether two wrongs make a right makes for interesting watching and obviously there is also the fact that they are really rich and beautiful and have amazing houses and lifestyles...etc.. *sigh*
1. Emily Thorne
butter yellow. I feel the colour is just a bit too unnatural. Also i can't help but notice her eyebrows look far too dark in comparison. I think she would look better with a less yellow, more ashy blonde colour. I do prefer her with blonde hair to the black hair she had in the flashback scene in episode 1 though. Emily usually has curly hair as shown above. Sometimes she wears it straight but I like it better when its curled
There are a lot of posh upperclass parties and social gatherings in Revenge (I suppose its these that remind me most of Made in Chelsea. Rich people seem to spend all their time at charity events which are basically , as far as I can tell, just an excuse to have a party). Emily often wears her hair in complicated updos when she attends. Sometimes she keeps a centre parting so it is quite plain from the front. I like it better when she pulls her hair back in updos so there is no parting.
2. Nolan Ross
blue peter presenter in the 70s or something due to his long hair and quirky fashion sense. Anyway, he is a good example of how someone can be attractive without actually being attractive... if you know what I mean.
I found this awesome blog post about Nolan's fashion sense. It represents exactly why I love Nolan. :)
3. Victoria Grayson
Kate Middletons hair as its long, and the same rich brown colour with a slight curl at the bottom. Like Emily she often wears her hair up at all the charity party event things.
4. Declan Porter
One Direction. Its long and wavy, and I guess sometimes gelled into a specific crazy mess. Yeah, its different every time he comes on. While his hair is a bit of an elegant mess, I do like it and its waaaay better than his brother Jack's hair.
Revenge is a show about money and social standing as well as just 'seeking revenge'. The members of Victoria's clan all want to be seen as rich and elegant with expensive tastes.This is reflected in the hairstyles. They have shiny perfect hair styled exactly into complicated styles
without a hair out of place. In contrast, characters such as nolan, Declan and Jack who are not part of the Hamptons social scene have more messy, less polished, laid-back styles.
