Back when she won ANTM, she was Eva Pigford, and she was sporting a hideous blonde haircut courtesy of Tyra’s minions. But now, she’s Eva Marcille, recent signee to a contract role on The Young and the Restless — which is incredibly boring these days despite the fact that I just realized this is the third post today on its cast members’ outfits — and guest at the Daytime Emmys. I’m rather relieved to say that Eva The Diva classed it up nicely for the occasion.
I can say from experience that Eva Pigford is not a tall person, and presumably Eva Marcille has not gotten shin extensions; ergo she’s done a great job picking a dress that is not only pretty but which lengthens her. And thank GOD, she’s kept the hair darker, which suits her better. The accessories are perfectly subtle. In all, this is rather a success — made sweeter, I’m sure, by the fact the rival she bested in that season’s finale, Yaya, seemingly did not attend the Emmys despite having been a contract regular on All My Children for weeks longer. Here’s hoping that their two daytime gigs intersect in a deliciously bitchy continuation of their ANTM feud, leading to a Tyra Banks Show episode in which Miss T has to moderate their sniping and ends up flipping her weave on both their sorry asses. In fact, maybe that has been the plan all along. Tyra, you madcap genius you.
