Downton Abbey: Michelle Dockery In Ralph Lauren Collection

michelle dockery, ralph lauren, downton abbey


Who: Michelle Dockery

Where: At an evening with the cast and producers of PBS Masterpiece series “Downton Abbey” hosted by Ralph Lauren & Graydon Carter in New York City

Wearing: A one-shouldered black embroidered leather Ralph Lauren Collection dress, teamed with Ralph Lauren Collection shoes and vintage jewellery

Verdict: I am not sure why Lady Mary looks like a deer caught in headlights in this image as she looks fabulous in this uber-tight and very sexy Ralph Lauren Collection dress, which kind of reminds me of Versace.

I do wish that she had taken a risk and shortened this dress a little, but I suppose she is trying to do edgy while still being sophisticated, which works but I would have loved her to really wow me.

Finishing up her look is a faux bob, it seems everyone wants shorter hair lately, and a gorgeous deep pink lippy, she really does do minimal make-up well.

Overall I like this look. What do you think of Lady Mary – did she play it a little too safe?
