Michelle Dockery in Erdem – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Michelle Dockery in Erdem - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Michelle Dockery returned to the red carpet at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, hosted at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1), to present designer Erdem Moralioğlu with the Womenswear Designer of the Year trophy.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress naturally opted for an Erdem Spring 2015 dress, which she represented beautifully although I had every intention of passing it off as a bit cluttered and chaotic for comfort.

But the bold and botanical statement ultimately proved to grow on me with every passing glance, as Michelle carried off the embroidered layers of fronds and greenery with characteristic elegance.

The sheer, sexy peekaboo detailing only added to the dark mystique of the design, which was counteracted by a sense of Victorian properness via the high neckline and ankle-grazing length.

A slightly unkempt updo and desert-rose-toned makeup only added to the intrigue. She could have stepped off the runway herself.

Michelle Dockery In Rosie Assoulin – 2014 Emmy Awards

MichelleDockeryInRosieAssoulin2014EmmyAwards

Michelle Dockery hit the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star wore a delightful Rosie Assoulin Fall 2014 gown with petal-like detailing and plenty of color.

It’s not every day you can say a gown looks better on the red carpet than it does on the runway, but I’m giving this one to Michelle. She brings this look to life in such a stunning way, and I love how much fun it is without being too wild and therefore out of her comfort zone.

Plenty of delicate Ana Khouri rings and pearl ear cuffs add to the whimsy of the look.

An easy updo, heavy eyeliner and dark nude lips are the perfect beauty accents to the fun look.

I’m giving this one a huge A+. Do you agree?

Michelle Dockery In Roland Mouret & Elie Saab - BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party & Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration

Michelle Dockery went from one extreme to another for her red carpet looks on Saturday (August 23) while attending the BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party before moving onto the Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration.

BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party: Working a colourful Roland Mouret Resort 2015 coral and white crop top with a graphic print draped skirt, the look was styled with the most lust-worthy, and complementary, pair of Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ aqua pumps, matching aqua earrings and an Anya Hindmarch Imperial shagreen clutch.

Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration: She then went into the opposite direction selecting an all black look. Looking sophisticated and poised in her Elie Saab uber sleek sleeveless Fall 2014 jumpsuit, she styled the piece with Christian Louboutin ‘Follies Resille’ fishnet pointy toe pumps, a black clutch and Vita Fede ‘Filo Cubo’ earrings.

Which look do you prefer?

Michelle Dockery In Zac Posen - Audi Celebrates Emmys' Week 2014

Michelle Dockery returned to the red carpet to attend Audi’s celebration of Emmys Week 2014 held at Cecconi’s Restaurant on Thursday (August 21) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a Zac Posen green Resort 2015 flattering strapless dress defined by strategically placed pintucks and pleats plus an asymmetrical hemline.

While being bowled over by the tailoring and the colour against her pale skin, the second place my eyes fell were to her gorgeous floral-print Paul Andrews pumps, which enhance the look along with the rich red lip.

A selection of jewels courtesy of EFFY Jewelry, Dana Rebecca Designs and Melinda Maria, plus a gold box clutch accessorized her look.

If this is the starter, I can’t wait for the main course on Monday night.

Michelle Dockery In Victoria Beckham - ‘Downton Abbey’ Summer TCA Tour Photocall

Michelle Dockery joined co-star Joanne Froggatt at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (July 22) in Beverly Hills, California for the ‘Downton Abbey’ Los Angeles photocall.

Like Joanne, Michelle also wore a British designer, selecting a look from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2014 collection.

Despite this look not taking to the runway, it’s identifiable by the gold chain and curious abstract print on the pleated skirt providing a striking contrast to the navy top.

Dark denim pumps rounded out her playful, ladylike look.

Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James for Harper’s Bazaar UK August 2014

There are two covers for the August 2014 edition of Harper’s Bazaar UK: one featuring Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James, and one of just Michelle on her own.

All the ladies are wearing looks from Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, with Michelle’s the most familiar as we’ve already seen this beauty on Cate Blanchett.

With ‘Downton Abbey’ returning for Season 6 in the fall on ITV, Harper’s Bazaar caught up with the ladies.

Michelle Dockery on how she’s ‘grown with the role': ‘Lady Mary always seemed sure of herself, but “it was a brashness that came from insecurity, whereas now it’s different, she’s very confident in her own skin, and I guess [that’s] the parallel, really, with my own life; I feel like I’ve reached a point now where I’m much more content and confident”.’

Laura Carmichael on when a French journalist who asked her why the show is such a hit; what’s the secret to its triumph: ‘Instead of answering, I turned the tables and asked him what he thought. “Because it is full of women”, he said, and I was like, “God, you’re so right!”‘

Lily James on the daily education on acting and being an actor on set: ‘I’m learning a lot about how to be one of the “good” actors. You’d hope that it’s natural to be a good person, and kind, but I’m learning how to deal with long, sometimes boring days.’

To see the full photo shoot, which includes the rest of the female cast, in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, pick up a copy when the mag hits newsstands tomorrow, 4 July.
