'Revenge' Fashion Recap: Why Nolan and Padma Wore Matching Blue Outfits

Get the scoop from "Revenge" costume designer Jill Ohanneson

If we’ve learned anything from our favorite TV shows about rich people behaving badly, it’s that weddings aren’t about true love, they’re about truly incredible fashion. Such was the case on Sunday night’s episode of Revenge — titled “Illusion” — at the nuptials (part deux) of Victoria and Conrad Grayson.

The bride looked stunning in a gray lace Vera Wang gown, but it was the wedding guests’ attire that really caught our eye.

Nolan and his new paramour Padma arrived in coordinating bold cobalt blue looks, which, like all things on Revenge, was hardly a coincidence.

“I purposely dressed Nolan and Padma in matching blue outfits because I felt that neither of them would have been asked or gone to their high school prom,” the show’s costume designer, Jill Ohanneson, tells PEOPLE. “So I was recreating that memorable fashion moment for them.”

Also turning heads: Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) in a plunging red Alexander McQueen design.

“I wanted her to be sexy and in a bright color so she’d stand out in the crowd,” Ohanneson explains. (Editor’s note: Mission accomplished!)

Not to be outdone, Ashley Davenport (Ashley Madekwe) looked lovely in a metallic Balenciaga gown (first ID’d by Possessionista). Tell us: What was your favorite look from Sunday’s episode of Revenge?
