Michelle Dockery in Valentino at the “Downton Abbey” Rome Film Festival Premiere: IN or OUT?

Posted on October 21, 2019

We feel like Miss Michelle is one of those blessed people who can make practically any style or look work for her. We feel like this dress is testing that idea.


We … aren’t sure what to think here. It is, thankfully, a fully lined dress. The colors are beautiful and she’s a lady who can handle a ton of them at once. The exuberant floral motif should, on paper, be a style that fairly sings on her. But are we wrong for thinking there’s just entirely too much dress going on here? The eye doesn’t know where to go and when it does settle down, it’s looking at that weirdly bright yellow area on her left sleeve. The spaghetti straps and v-neckline only add to the visual confusion. On the other hand, it’s bright, bold, a little sparkly and darkly glamorous. This should be working like gangbusters. Maybe it is. You tell us.
