The ladies of Downton Abbey, upstairs and down, stepped out with a Hollywood crowd. As per usual when the ladies of Downton hit the red carpet, they go for lots of eye makeup and short skirts.
Michelle Dockery in Prada
Except for Michelle. She doesn’t really change her makeup all that much from her Lady Mary face. You never see her with a smokey eye or a really strong lip. We wonder if that’s because she’s not inclined toward a lot of makeup (she doesn’t really need it, after all), or if it’s just a smart bit of branding for her. She looks like Lady Mary in the 21st Century wherever she goes.
Having said that, this dress is weird.
Damn, Ivy cleans up nicely when you get her out of the kitchen. Hair and makeup look great. Everything else is tasteful, if not particularly adventurous.
She’s capable of looking very glamorous, but that dress is plain FUG and her makeup looks scary.

We’d love to see that jacket and skirt split up for separate outfits. We’d love to see those shoes burned.
