Victoria Rowell - Obama Dress at the Emmy Awards

Did you see the Emmy Awards this year? One of the hot topics is whether Victoria Rowell (formerly of The Young and Restless and Diagnosis: Murder) had one of the best or worst dresses. She wore one featuring Obama fabric from Ghana. Sistah blogger Karen Nicole, who has been to Ghana, discusses the fabric. If Victoria Rowell has any scraps left, I could use them for a new quilt! What do you think of her dress?

I love the whole idea. The idea, not the dress. A clever dressmaker could have draped the fabric well. The face plasted right in the center is odd. A dress made in the manner of an African garment would have been striking.

I get this...and seeing that the event is a concept and celebration for tv land the dress is a concept and celebration so it works for the occassion and its fun.

I think the previous comment by Karoda makes sense to me intellectually. And it is a little difficult to judge just from a photo. But no matter how much I admire someone (and I do admire Pres. Obama) I think maybe there are other styles of dresses that would be more suitable for that kind of graphic design... and... there might be a place for a different style of portrait of Obama on a dress like this... more water color-ey or something.... or this style of portrait on a different shape/style/material dress... however... fashion is also about breaking the rules. And I think, on the whole, this dress looks good in this moment.KB

Looks like a souvineer tablecloth gone wrong. What was she thinking????

I agree with Christine. Probably an
African style would have worked better. This way the front view makes it look as though she is draped in a large bath sheet. The profile view, with the drape just dangling, does not add a thing, IMHO.

I think the designer was very clever, using the fabric as she/he did. It's a conversation piece, that's for sure, and no worse than some of the baaad design we've seen on the red carpet.
