Emily VanCamp is taking a fashion cue from Victoria Greyson on the 2012 Emmys red carpet: The Revenge starlet stunned in a grey J. Mendel dress.

The Emmys presenter told E! News that when it comes to choosing the perfect red carpet outfit, she looks for something comfortable. “I like to be understated and comfortable,” she said. “That’s the best way for me to do these kinds of things.”

Despite looking flawless on the red carpet, VanCamp’s not always as camera-ready — and that’s become an issue now that the success of ABC’s Revenge has made her a paparazzi favorite.

What did VanCamp have to say about her new superstar status?

“I never have any idea I’m being photographed. It’s one of those obnoxious things that happens in this business,” she told E! “There are so many wonderful sides to it, but it’s kind of weird when people are hiding in bushes when you’re just trying to do to the grocery store in your sweats.”

However, VanCamp is grateful for her ABC show’s success. Not only did her primetime gig introduce her to her boyfriend Joshua Bowman, but it also brought her to the Emmys.

“You have to be cautious of it, but it’s part of [being famous],” she said. “You can’t complain. Look where we get to be now!”
