Harper’s Bazaar UK gets the styling exactly right for Lady Mary. The trick with her looks is to embrace that classic, delicate “English Rose” kind of beauty that she embodies so well. It’s a bit retro and old-school and we can understand why any young, modern actress might not want to be saddled with such an image, but:

You can’t deny it suits her like crazy.
Miu Miu Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Vanessa Axente (VIVA)
Prada Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Jessa Brown
And how ironic that she’s finally being served well in that very crisp, suited English style … by wearing clothes from an Italian designer’s collection.
Michelle darling, neither of these outfits look particularly difficult to wear, so we urge you to continue in this vein for all your public appearances. If you’ve got to stick to Prada and Miu Miu to do it, we won’t complain.
