“Downton Abbey” actress Michelle Dockery attends the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.
There’s a big part of us that feels like we’re supposed to hate this for being so fussy.
And to be fair, the weirdness of that bust is asking a lot of us. But is Lady Mary Crawley can’t work a little fussiness on the red carpet, who the hell can? Granted, we’ve always said Michelle should try for more modern streamlined fare, but this was her last chance to stand on an Emmy stage representing the Crawley family, so we don’t blame her for choosing something a bit precious. The starkness of the look really suits her. If the bodice wasn’t so overdesigned, we’d love this unreservedly. As it is, we sorta-like it, sorta-understand it.
But you make the call, kittens:
