President Barack Obama makes Emmy red carpet fashion statement for Victoria Rowell



Can we all agree the Emmy fashion was a little average? Some people looked better than others, but on the whole, there weren't many complete home runs or blaring buckets of crazy.



This here is soap star Victoria Rowell, and as you can see, she's a fan of President Barack Obama. But unlike some dullards who might simply place a modest bumper sticker on their fender, Victoria Rowell has gone BUTT-OUT BALLISTIC for her prez.

Yes, her body is covered in the severed head of Barack. And yes, I sort of want to remind her that the campaign is over, and DUDE, HE WON. But apart from that, I just feel like this is otherwise ill-played. It looks like she took a bolt from the "whimsical character" section at JoAnn Fabrics and hastily secured it around her person with large binder clips five minutes to showtime. Maybe there is an explanation. Maybe her real gown didn't arrive. Maybe she sat in Laffy Taffy in the limo and needed a quick change. Maybe she got a text halfway there that Jessica Lange was wearing her same dress and, QUICK, DO SOMETHING.

Or maybe it's the obvious - that if not for this photo, there's no way we 'd be talking about Victoria Rowell today. In that case, well done!
