Revenge Season 3, Episode 8: Exclusive Fashion Details From Costume Designer Jill OhannesonNov 18, 2013 @ 6:50 pm
When Victoria Grayson hosts an event, the dramatics could substitute as party favors, because there will definitely be enough to go around, as evidenced by last night’s Revenge. Still intent on breaking up the seemingly-happy couple, Charlotte has been arranging meetings between Daniel and Sara, while Victoria invites an unexpected guest to the engagement party — Emily‘s former husband, Rohan. Emily’s jealousy gets the better of her, and she follows Daniel to the Farmer’s Market, where she sees him meeting with Sara. Emily confronts her, and Sara later tells Victoria that she will no longer help in causing a rift between the two.
Meanwhile, Charlotte receives troubling news that her phone has been stolen, and the thief is planning to blackmail her with scandalous pictures taken at a photo shoot in Paris. She enlists the help of Aiden, who is currently living with Nolan. While the revelation of Emily’s former husband was shocking news — Rohan had also trained for revenge under Takeda, and Emily falsified a marriage with him so he could stay in the country with his boyfriend — even more surprises take place in the form of the secret apartment of the Grayson men, Daniel’s tryst with Sarah, and Lydia Davis’ surprise return. “I was so surprised when I was reading the script and saw she was coming back,” said costume designer Jill Ohanneson, who prepared supermodel Amber Valetta to once again don Lydia’s couture pieces. “You can dress everybody in the world, but when you start dressing a supermodel who knows how to wear clothes so instinctively, you can take any old dress on a hanger and she makes it look like a three-thousand dollar gown. It’s amazing how she can elevate clothes.”
We can’t wait to see what she’ll wear in the many plot twists to come! Each week, we chat with Ohanneson, who tells us the meaning behind the pieces worn by each character. Get all the details on the outfits showcased by Emily, Victoria, Charlotte, and more in our gallery!
