But recently, Ems took a page from Vicki’s book, sporting an amazing bandage dress on our favorite shoreside drama! Yes, she’s worn them before, but this particular outfit had our eyes rolling to the back of our head — it was that sexy.
However, as gorgeous as Emily looked, could it really top Queen Victoria, the ultimate bandage dress-wearing Hamponite? Let’s break three defining points:
Emily is a PYT.
Even though Victoria seems ageless, Emily is obviously much younger than her. Sometimes we get a Snow White/Evil Queen vibe, but at the end of the day, Vicki isn’t jealous or envious of Ems — they just mutually want to destroy each other.
Recently, however, Emily has been more curvaceous and strutting her stuff, and is quite a PYT. She has at least three suitors, while Victoria only has one, if that. So for straight-up looks, Emily wins this round.
Even though Emily is young and hot, she doesn’t send a chill through the room like Victoria does. Although her style doesn’t frighten people, the click of her heels and the sight of one of her many bandage dresses is the signal for most Hamptonites to run. Yes, Ems has enacted revenge on many shoreside residents, but that part of her life is a secret — Victoria’s wrath, on the other hand, is not. So … Vicki wins this round!
Who wears them most often?
Let’s be honest: We hardly ever see Victoria in anything but bandage dresses. The only times we recall her wearing pants were when she was with Charlotte at The Stowaway last season, and earlier in Season 2 when she was “kidnapped and beaten.” Ems, on the other hand, wears pants and many styles of dresses daily, saving her formal wear for events and steamy dates with her men. So if it’s quantity over quality (even though they both wear designer duds), Victoria wins this round!
We could continue on forever with this “competition,” but at the end of the day, Victoria will always be the winner. No matter how hot Ems looks, Victoria is the OG of bandage dress-wearing Hamptonites and she’ll always reign supreme. But we want to hear your input, too. Vote for your favorite below!
