Laura Carmichael In Gucci - The Glamour Of Italian Fashion 1945-2014 VIP Private View

Laura Carmichael joined Mollie King on the red carpet for the VIP private viewing of ‘The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014′ held at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Wednesday (April 2) in London, England.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star showed off a little skin, wearing a Gucci black jersey dress from the Fall 2013 collection featuring a high neckline with a racy tonal mesh panel showcasing her cleavage.

Laura doesn’t often do sexy; in fact, this might just be the first time, but she pulls off the risqué look with great aplomb.

Sexy or TMI?

Laura Carmichael In Erdem – 2014 BAFTAs

Laura Carmichael In Erdem - 2014 BAFTAsLaura Carmichael was also at the 2014 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

Eschewing a long gown in favour of a shorter cocktail dress, the ‘Downton Abbey’ star wore an Erdem Pre-Fall 2014 strapless, forest-green frock.

Featuring the label’s signature florals, this greenery was of the darker, moodier variety, although the specks of sparkling embellishment brought a lighter note to the design.

That embellishment was really all there was to be found here, as she skipped any sign of statement jewels, completing the look with Gianvito Rossi black-and-metallic strap sandals and casual, half-up, half-down hair.

Simple and chic, or were you left wanting more from this look?

Laura Carmichael In Vionnet – 2014 SAG Awards

Laura Carmichael In Vionnet - 2014 SAG Awards

Laura Carmichael also took to the red carpet at the 2014 SAG Awards, held on Saturday evening (January 18) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress opted for an asymmetrical, draped design from Vionnet’s Spring 2014 collection.

On this occasion, I’m glad she veered from the more progressive runway version of this glittery, soft metallic-gold dress, skipping the distracting white shirt worn underneath.

She further glamorized the gown with a slate-grey Lauren Merkin ‘Lucca’ oval box clutch, Jerome C. Rousseau black strappy sandals and sparkling Rona Pfeiffer statement jewels, including a sizable wrist cuff, cocktail ring and long bauble pendant earrings.

A spit-slick updo and neutral makeup completed the look.

Laura Carmichael In Viktor & Rolf – 2014 Golden Globes Awards

Laura Carmichael In Viktor & Rolf - 2014 Golden Globes Awards

‘Downton Abbey’ star Laura Carmichael attended the 2014 Golden Globes Awards, held at the Beverley Hilton Hotel in Beverley Hills, California on Sunday (Janaury 12).

The British actress wore a custom sleek white Viktor & Rolf column dress with sweetheart neckline and black side-panel detailing styled with a sparkling clutch and Jerome C. Rousseau shoes.

Having heavily supporting British designers on the red carpet it was a welcome change to see Laura in a Parisian powerhouse label.

The white gown was also surprising choice considering Laura’s pale complexion, but it worked. Simple and understated yet elegant and chic, what’s not to like?

But what I do I find ever so slightly disappointing about this look is the hair.

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – Watch What Happens Live

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane - Watch What Happens Live

Laura Carmichael opted to go dark again while making a guest appearance on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ to promote Season 4 of ‘Downton Abbey’ in New York City yesterday evening.

Turning to another British designer, she wore a black crepe-and-crackle-lace top and skirt from Christopher Kane’s Resort 2014 collection, which she paired with her can’t-live-without feather boots from the Fall 2013 collection.

The boots give the look an edge, but I would’ve loved to have seen her wear this look in red to allow the crackle lace on the skirt to stand out more.
