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.
