Revenge Season 4, Episode 7: Why Emily Wore Her Blue Ombre Sweater for That Pivotal Scene
Is it just us, or was last night's episode of Revenge the most emotional one yet? In the emotional final scene, Emily Thorne is finally reunited with her father, and as per always, our protagonist dressed appropriately for the event.
"Emily was in her functional gear for most of the episode, but when she bursts in on her father, we wanted it to be softer, which is why she wore her ombre sweater over the jeans," says costume designer Jill Ohanneson, who chose a Vince sweater, Rag and Bone faded denim jeans, and a pair of Steve Madden lace-up boots for the star. A black Rag and Bone T-shirt, which she had on in a previous scene, was worn underneath.
"This is Amanda/Emily at her truest. She's still a little bit covered with the sweater to kind of protect her, but she's as vulnerable as she'll let herself be in that moment," she adds. "Emily has worn that sweater before, and it's one she likes to put on when she's reminiscing and thinking. The moment is one of the main things we've all been waiting for, and it's all been boiling under the surface." To showcase that, the gradual fade in color from white to blue certainly added a nice touch. After the shocking ending, we can only guess what next week's episode has in store!
