Darlings, a trio of Downton Abbey ladies (actually a duo of ladies + one maid, if you want to get pedantic about it) hit the red carpet of the 2012 London Evening Standard British Film Awards, with, shall we say, varying results.
Elizabeth McGovern apparently really likes certain things, like strapless dresses with skirts that flare out and wearing hosiery with open-toed shoes. We can’t forgive the latter. but we can work with the former. The color suits and the shape flatters. The clutch is pretty bad, though.
She’s got to stop tucking her chin in and smiling with her mouth closed. It’s making her look a little crazy.
Oh, how quaint! British TV stars carry their book bags on the red carpet, wear coats over their dresses, and do their own makeup!
Have the Brits invented stylists yet? We’re ready to step in, if they need us.
Trust a housemaid to show them how it’s done:

She ain’t no fool. No off-the-rack coats for this one. It’s big hair, sexy designer dresses, and stiletto heels, all the way. Mr Bates and his endless bullshit drama are not welcome here, obviously.
