Michelle Dockery in Prada at the 2013 Emmy Awards

Posted on September 23, 2013

We really want to like this more than we actually do.


“Downton Abbey” star Michelle Dockery attends the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California in a Prada two-tone gown paired with Fred Leighton jewelry.

We love the idea of pairing these two reds. The problem is, that top red doesn’t really work all that well with her skin tone, making her look a little sallow. It doesn’t help that she’s shiny-faced. We’re also not sure the shape works for her. She’s slim and lithe like a dancer, so putting her in gigantic skirts seems to work against her. “Elegant” and “soignee” should be the buzz words here; not “big” and “heavy.”

We don’t know… none of her natural assets, from her fair skin to her hair to her body, are really being set off by here. It’s the very definition of a “does nothing for her” dress.
