Downton Abbey Wrap Party

Posted on August 17, 2015

It’s the end of an era, darlings. Whatever the end of the Downton saga may be, it’s written and in the can. For these folks, the story is over.

Random thoughts and judgments to follow.

Everyone looks so happy. We don’t know if that’s true camaraderie and pride or if they’re all just a little drunk, but it makes for fun pictures.

Elizabeth just never gets it quite right, to our eyes. Although this is mostly inoffensive. It just comes off too fussy to us. And the bag really doesn’t go.


Michelle Dockery in Lanvin

Someone’s ditching her aristocratic image as fast as she can shed it. We suspect the poledance for this final season will see a glammed-up and sexed-up Michelle. Girlfriend’s gotta secure that next role, after all.

She looks good, though.

And similar to Michelle getting her gold sandals and party dress on, Allen sure is looking in fighting trim, isn’t he?

Samantha looks cute except for that shrug.


Laura Carmichael

LOVELOVELOVE this look. The shoes are what take it from boring to chic. And the dress is our favorite kind of LBD: plain, with a twist. Her hair looks great.


Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern

Aw. We truly hope they like each other. We’d hate to hear behind-the-scenes tales of backstabbing and pointed silences.

We saw him onstage at a couple of Downton events hosted by PBS and he comes off – and we say this with all affection and not an ounce of judgment – like he’d be the perfect guy to go out and get sloppy-drunk with.


Lily James

The dress is fine, but the hair is terribly aging; both the cut and the color.


Phyllis Logan and Jim Carter

Aw, Part 2. Just take everything we wrote above about Hugh and Elizabeth and apply it to these two.

It’s always a shock seeing her out of her stern housekeeper’s togs.


Penelope Wilton, Jim Carter and Michelle Dockery

Love Penelope’s ballet slippers.


Allen Leech

The suit looks great. Not sure about the pocket square.


Lesley Nicol and Sophie McShera

Aw, Part 3. Ditto.

Thankfully, they look like they adore each other. We couldn’t bear otherwise.

Swingin’ Downton.
