Wrapped Up In Obama: Victoria Rowell At The Emmys & The Dress She Should Have Worn.

I haven’t even thought about blogging about the 2009 Emmys (it hasn’t even aired here yet on the West Coast), and I probably won’t even do a post on them this year. But that doesn’t mean I can’t share with you what will undoubtedly be one of the most talked about dresses there.

Obama Red Carpet Dresses

Actress Victoria Rowell showed up in a very tacky, albeit loyal, tribute to our 44th President by wrapping herself in what appears to be an Obama tablecloth at our 61st Emmy Awards show this evening.

Good sentiment, bad execution. May I suggest Jean-Charles de Castelbajac‘s Obama dress (shown below) instead?

Maybe next year, Victoria.
