Goodness I love Revenge. Have you seen it? Are you similarly smitten?!
It's so clever!
But we're not here to natter about Victoria Grayson's infamous ice-cold one-liners (Lydia: ''I came to apologize.'' Victoria: ''For sleeping with my husband, or for blackmailing us? I'm just not quite sure which apology I should be aiming my forgiveness at.'' OUCH!), or Jack Porter's adorable charm. Nooo.
Rather, can we take a moment to celebrate the astounding style that belongs to Victoria's personal assistant, Ashley Davenport? It's such a visual TREAT!
Take, for example, this bewitching sunshine-yellow/grey marle number. Now, I don't know about you, but when I go to wear something grey, I'll instinctively try to match it to another grey item. Bor-ing! CLEARLY this where I've been steering wrong.
And again: a charming coral top worn with a mushroom-hued skirt? Well I'd never!
It's all in the details, isn't it? You see, Ashley could have whacked on any old pair of gloves, but no... instead, she picks this glorious TARTAN pair! (And doesn't the red from the tartan pattern work back beautifully with her red coat? Oh, Ashley. You GENIUS!)
Why wear a black slip under your favourite cocktail dress when you can don a marvellous red slip?
Or you could just bypass black all-together and slink into a delectable gold ensemble...
Who says that corporate attire needs to be boring? Not Ashley! Instead, she'll just pop on a big, bright belt and strut straight back to business.
Or THIS. This. Ack! The creativity of it almost hurts my BRAIN! (But in all honesty, there's a superb reason why Ashley always looks so outrageously fabulous. Did you know that her character was specifically created for Ashley Madekwe, a real-life fashion blogger?! It was!)
Ringer's Bridget Kelly?
Law & Order's Olivia Benson?
Seinfeld's George Costanza?!
Which TV character's sartorial sense are you currently swooning over?
I know this is an old post, but I wanted to comment.. Love Revenge, love Ashley's character, love the clothes (especially Ashley and Nolan's. I think he's the most interestinlgy dressed male character on TV!).
However, I think the last outfit you posted comes from REAL Ashley's blog! It's way more informal and funky than what Ashley the character would usually wear!
As for the character whose style I enjoy more, that would be Britta from Community. In choosing my everyday look I'm not very girly and Britta proves that jeans-boots-and-sweather outfits don't have to be boring and you can be casual and stylish at the same time if you know how to accessorize.
nice, thank you very much
WHere can i buy this yellow top?!?
I am completely unfamiliar with this show and with the characters, but these fabulous outfits are enough to make me want to check it out. I'm always looking for ways to spice up my business clothes without looking unprofessional, and these photos have provided me with some great new ideas. Thanks for sharing them! Do you have any recommendations of where online to shop for some of these looks?
thanks so much for stopping by! she has great style indeed!!
Oh I've heard about this but not seen it yet...maybe I should give it a try!
I've never watched the show but I've always admired Ashley's fashion even before the show! shes soo chic!
Stacey - HA! That's incredible! (Although, in all honesty, I'm totally not surprised. Seriously... the show IS *that* good!)
And I can't believe that I've still never watched a full episode of 'Glee'. Must do something about that!
Nessbow - I've never seen 'The MIghty Boosh'! Thanks a ton for your comment Vanessa, I'll definitely have to investigate that one! :)
I've never actually watched Revenge, but Ashley's style is gorgeous. I love her alternative twist on corporate style.
For me, the television character that I take the most style inspiration from is Vince Noir from The Mighty Boosh. I love his confidence, and his playful attitude towards fashion. He'll try anything once, and I adore that.
I've never watched Revenge before, but apparently the whole of Clermont is addicted. One of the girls I work with said the whole pub emptied the other night when the "Revenge...on next" ad came on the pub TV, so that they could race home to catch the show.
This lovely lady does have some great style though! Loving it. I don't watch much TV anymore, so probably my most recent TV style crush would be someone from Glee, lol.
Linda - INDEED! Too true.
Julie - Isn't it?! I had no idea until recently, either!
Lina - Ooh, a competition? I haven't heard anything about one!
Kasia - If you're hooked after one episode of 'Revenge', I promise never to mention it again! :p But really... it's THAT good!
Harriet - Do, do! I promise you won't regret it!
Jelisaveta Djukanovic - She IS!
Molly - Uh HUH. Me too! BIG time!
Olivia - So I'm not the only one? PHEW!
Little T - She's a stunner, right?!
Joelyne - I *still* can't believe that I've never seen 'Secret Diary Of A Call Girl'. Ah! Thanks heaps for the info, Joelyne! :)
Nat - She certainly does!
Oh I love Revenge!! She has great style.
I love her blog! Her style is ahmaze! I used to watch her in Secret Diaries of a Call girl. She's a great actor :)
Love her style! And those cheekbones!
She is so uber fab! And I love that yellow top- I never thought to pair it with grey either!
This makes me wish I could have a stylist!
I love her style! I haven't seen the show but will definitely be checking it out now!
Incredible! I never knew her before! So inspiring... I need to get deeper in the topic!
Haha, right? (; I love it. Why don't join her competition about it? :D<3
I've always liked Ashley's ensembles on the show, she looks amazing all the time. I had no idea she was a fashion blogger, that is just incredible :O
Oh wow, no wonder she's so amazingly stylish! She's a fashion blogger? Haha, that's awesome!
I love the styles shown on her. Nothing like bright belts to make everything better :)
