Traveling on

Rather a lot of Emmy Rossum pictures hit the wire this past week, which led me to believe that she had something to promote, She does, of course, but this probably isn’t it: her second album, Sentimental Journey, due out in two weeks. The title gives it away: it’s a collection of standards, and we can always use a collection of standards, right? The first single is a version of Willie Nelson’s “Pretty Paper,” which you probably remember as a Roy Orbison hit, circa 1963. It’s about as far from “Slow Me Down,” her sort-of-hit single from 2007, as you can get.

One of the stops on Emmy’s itinerary was ABC’s daytime gabfest The View. This was reportedly shot backstage at ABC yesterday:

She continues with her day job on the Showtime series Shameless, which was probably what she was actually promoting during that whirlwind tour, inasmuch as the series’ new season (the third) started Sunday.

And I’d appreciate it if someone could name this shade of green, which I think is utterly wonderful.

    I’d call it “emerald,” but I’m sure there’s an official Pantone name for it out there.

    According to Wiki article, the dress appears to be 2 shades of green: skirt is Fern and the bustier – Forrest Green. Although, most likely, it’s the same fabric just hit a bit differently by light due to direction of weave.

    There is never enough Standards, I agree – but only in jazz singer-solo category

    I would say that it’s approaching Pantone’s “color of the year” this season. I keep seeing it featured on their Facebook page. I approve, of course, since any and all shades of green are my favorite.

    I think of emerald as a bit darker than that but it doesn’t matter. They make up new names every year and most of the colors are unrelated to the thing they are named after.
