Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Michelle Dockery In Peter Pilotto - Entertainment Weekly’s Pre-SAG Awards Party

Michelle Dockery joined Nina Dobrev and Ashley Madekwe on the red carpet at the Chateau Marmont in California last night, for Entertainment Weekly’s Pre-SAG Awards party.

I was initially shocked to see her wearing such an edgy design from the Peter Pilotto’s Spring 2013 collection, but then I realised that I was associating her style too closely to her ‘Downton Abbey’ character.

Her halter dress was teamed with bright red pumps which complemented the vivid print, plus she added a mother of pearl clutch to her look.

I like how this statement piece showcases another side to her red carpet style, but the only thing letting this look down was the mumsy updo.

I think a slick back ponytail would’ve made this look feel more youthful.

Michelle Dockery In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - 2013 Golden Globes

Michelle Dockery surprised me when she took to the red carpet this evening for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Sunday.

I was expecting to be unimpressed with her choice but she proved me wrong, wearing an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2012 Couture gown.

The designer, who is loved by the likes of Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Alicia Keys and Rita Ora, created this stunning white crepe gown with a gold guipure bodice and signature bold shoulders.

After disappointing at the Emmy Awards, Michelle’s risky choice tonight paid off.

Gold accessories and wavy tresses completed her look.

I’m pretending not to notice her burgundy pumps.

Ralph Lauren and Graydon Carter hosted an evening with the cast of ‘Downton Abbey’, which was an evening of cocktails and a screening of Season 3 prior to its premiere in the US on January 6, 2013.

Joanne Froggatt: As you can see, it was a sea of LBDs at this event, but Joanne was not going to cave: she stuck to her fabulous colourful red carpet run, wearing a delightful pink Ralph Lauren Collection silk sleeveless dress with silver accessories. Needless to say, she’s fast becoming one of my red carpet faves as she is a woman after my own heart.

Michelle Dockery: This is the first time we have seen Michelle on the red carpet since her Emmy’s Louis Vuitton disaster. She got her look oh-so-very right last night, wearing a sexy black Ralph Lauren embroidered one-shoulder dress with ombre Ralph Lauren pumps. A faux bob and dark-pink lips completed her look.

Elizabeth McGovern: Even though the actress also opted for a black Ralph Lauren frock, her silk faille dress was styled with punchy accessories including a purple clutch and satin pumps with a gold accent, both by Ralph Lauren. An additional pop of colour came via her red glossy lips. Was this one pop too far?

Sophie McShera: Sophie, who plays my favourite character from Downton Abbey, was also in attendance. Looking very confident, she wore a black-and-gold Brian Lichtenberg festive crop top with a black leather skirt. Her edgy, youthful look included a black clutch and lace-up booties.

On my VirginMedia TiVo box I currently have approximately 15 unwatched episodes of ‘Downtown Abbey’ I need to catch up on (I’m waiting for a quiet weekend), so I will do the same with Michelle Dockery’s style, as I am yet to feature her.

Starting with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation’s 2012 Emmy Awards Reception, the British actress wore a Stella McCartney floral dress, which is very Erdem-esque.

Black accessories would’ve been an easy option, but she opted to style the look with a Be&D ‘Kumamoto’ beige clutch and nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Joining a whole host of stars on the red carpet at the Variety And Women In Film Pre-Emmy Event on Friday, Michelle opted for an Erdem ‘Ariel’ dress from the Fall 2012 collection.

The pink-and-black lace dress is the epitome of sophisticated uptown refinement.

Black pumps and a black-embroidered velvet clutch completed this look.

On Saturday she attended the BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea 2012 presented by BBC America in West Hollywood wearing a Nina Ricci silk crepe printed and embroidered tulle dress from the Resort 2013 collection.

I adore the styling with the retro updo, the cream Be&D clutch, contrasting orange leather pumps and coral lip shade.

Sadly, things grinded to a screaming halt on Sunday evening at the 2012 Emmy Awards.

I don’t like anything about her custom Louis Vuitton bustier satin gown with an organza yoke which was styled with a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch.

In fact I am surprised this is custom-made as the fit is terrible, starting from the bodice and ending with the awkward length. The back peplum is also unflattering and don’t get me started on those creases.
