Laura Carmichael In Markus Lupfer – Autograph Collection Hotels Short Film Award

Laura Carmichael stepped out at the inaugural Autograph Collection Hotels Short Film Award on Thursday (February 15) in London, England.

The former ‘Downton Abbey’ star was clad in a Markus Lupfer Resort 2018 dress.

The style has plenty of interest between the striped panels and the printed base so I can understand why she opted for a more restrained approach when it came to accessorizing.

The Kooples ‘Emily’ bag and black ankle-strap shoes play up the vintage, almost flapper-like quality of the piece without taking away from the details.

It has a feminine polish that’s very much in her wheelhouse, but part of me wishes she would have added at least one accessory from the lookbook to recapture some of the joy.

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – The Fashion Awards 2017

Laura Carmichael struck a pose at The Fashion Awards on Monday (December 4) in London, joining Pink and Selena Gomez.

I was surprised when I saw the former ‘Downton Abbey’ star clad in a directional Christopher Kane Spring 2018 dress.

The actress often favors classic, feminine styles with timeless silhouettes so I applaud her for trying something new.

Her black version presented a more formal feel and I can hear many cheers for her lining the dress. The neutral underlayer allowed the exquisite lace detailing to not be lost.

The crisscross heels played up the edginess of the look, but I would have preferred a clutch over the micro bag.

Laura Carmichael In Roksanda – Downton Abbey: The Exhibition

The ‘Downtown Abbey: The Exhibition’ event took place at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre on Tuesday (June 21) in Singapore, with of the lead actresses Laura Carmichael in attendance.

It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of Laura’s style, but the contrast of the matte and patent horizontal panels of her Roksanda Spring 2017 dress keeps me interested.

The silhouette was typically simple as were the accessories and hair, so I was thankful for addtion of red lipstick to attempt to lift the look.

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party

Wednesday (June 7) played host to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition preview party, a highlight of London’s social calendar which attracted a plethora of style savvy stars.  I was delighted that many summery frock were on display, despite the not-so summer weather.

Zawe Ashton: There was something very 1920s about Zawe’s Roksanda ‘Hillevi’ dress in glorious bubblegum pink satin. Sleek finishing touches were added with a Roksanda ‘Besa’ bag and Roksanda ‘Dana’ shoes.

Florence Welch: Sticking to her signature bohemian style, the singer kept things colourful with a Gucci Fall 2017 ensemble. Black and pink floral prints made way for a ruby red Gucci clutch and cream Gucci boots, both emblazoned with the designer’s definitive animal symbolism.

Katherine Jenkins: The singer chose a monochrome Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu piece for the occasion. While I liked the lace detailing, the belt seemed ill-fitting to the look.

Laura Carmichael In Erdem – Three Empire Awards

Laura Carmichael was also at the Three Empire awards on Sunday (March 19) in London alongside Ella Purnell and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Perhaps inspired by the flirty appeal of this girly, bubblegum-pink hue, she wore an Erdem Pre-Fall 2017 embroidered dress.

Generally, a peplum-style silhouette is meant to be flattering, but here the extra fabric at the waist and hip fell a bit awkwardly.

I would also say her dark sandals somewhat weighed down the dress, however, the opposite was true for her beauty look which was a fresh, natural finish.
