The upstairs and downstairs ladies of Downton Abbey strapped on their heels, slapped on their warpaint, and shocked their fanbase once again with their bold and modern ways.
Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Phyllis Logan, Joanne Froggatt and Sophie McShera attend PBS History’s “Downton Abbey” Season 4 Photo Call in Beverly Hills, California.
Michelle Dockery in Elie Saab
We’d have put her in a different top and shoes, but this is still pretty good as-is, considering how many missteps are in poor Lady Mary’s red carpet history.
Laura Carmichael in Moschino Cheap and Chic
This is pretty cute. It might be a little too cute for a grown woman, but she’s selling it. It must be such a relief for her to get out in front of cameras without the sour face and without being made up to look like the ugly sister.
This is probably the best thing we’ve ever seen her in. We’ve only ever seen her wear kinda loud, tacky-looking outfits, or matronly ones. This is stylish and pretty. Don’t love the color of the shoes, but that’s the only complaint.
Joanne Froggatt in Camilla and Marc
She wins this red carpet, hands down. She always was the most stylish of the cast. Not crazy about the hair, but the outfit’s gorgeous.
Sophie McShera in Zara
Damn. Daisy’s got quite the bod on her. It’s a shame the dress, tight as it is, kinda reads as “Sunday School teacher.” A more youthful print would’ve been a huge help here. And girl, that’s not your lip color.
