We’re going to a screening party of the new Downton Abbey season tomorrow night and half the cast is going to be there! Neener-neener! Jealous, bitches?
We went to the same event last year and it’s one hell of a shock to see the cast in modern dress; especially the ladies, who all seem to be wearing WAY too much makeup, when really, they’re wearing roughly the same amount of makeup most ladystars wear in public.
‘Downton Abbey’ stars Sophie McShera and Rob James-Collier attend an evening with the cast and producers of PBS Masterpiece series “Downton Abbey” hosted by Ralph Lauren & Graydon Carter in New York City.
HE: Looks adorably hot. We can’t say one bad thing about a man in a red plaid shirt and black velvet blazer in December. Perfectly seasonal-appropriate. And everything seems to fit him near-perfectly (jacket’s just a skosh too tight). Those shirt cuffs are giving us life. Love the hair, but we’re afraid we’re going to have to take points off for the neckbeard. Score: 8/10.
SHE: We’re sorry to say, is wearing something pretty damn trashy-looking. Sweetie, you can wear a leather skirt OR a belly-baring top with metallic accents, but you can’t wear both at the same time. Just ditch the top altogether. It looks cheap and it’s giving you uni-boob. We’re not super-keen on the booties either; not paired with a full, leather skirt like this. The makeup looks fine, but we’re surprised she’s essentially wearing her hair Daisy-style. We would have thought she’d want something a little more fun and sexy than that. Score: 5/10. We feel bad now.
Combined score: 6.5/10. Trust the homosexual valet to do all the heavy lifting; stylistically speaking, that is.
Are all the Bitter Kitten Downton-philes super-psyched for the new season to start in January? We sure are. As with last season, we’ll be part of PBS’ “official twitter team,” doing live-tweets for every episode as it airs. We had a blast doing it last time and we’re itching to say bitchy things about Lady Mary and Miss O’Brien again.
British Kittens (and impatient American kittens who illegally downloaded the episodes) are asked to please refrain from any spoilers in the comments section.
