Emily VanCamp went for all-out glamour at the 2012 Emmy Awards on September 23, 2012, wearing a ruched chiffon gown the color of gray by J. Mendel. But was all that complex design work at the waist a little too distracting to make this a red carpet hit?

We love the Revenge star’s accessories and hair, from the casual 1930s updo to the diamond bow bracelet and crystal clutch. And as much as we appreciate the attention to detail on Emily’s straight-from-the-runway gown, it was hard to see the couture look as anything but complicated on TV.
