Michelle Dockery modern for photo call

Michelle Dockery went colourful for a Downton Abbey photo call in California last night.

The British actress might be known for her aristocratic period costumes on the show, but last night at The Beverly Hilton hotel in California she kept it colourful in a sleeveless dress with a navy top and pleated patterned skirt in red, blue and beige.

Michelle, who plays Lady Mary Crawley in the drama, accessorised with a gold necklace and kept her hair and make-up simple. Her brunette locks were twisted into an up-do and she sported just a bit of eyeliner and mascara.

The 32-year-old was joined by her onscreen Lady's Maid, Joanne Froggatt, who plays Anna. The 33-year-old was on trend in monochrome, picking a simple dress with a black pattern and white fringing snaking down the middle.

Laura Carmichael, who plays Lady Edith Crawley, also stepped out for the event. Showing less leg than her colleagues, she opted for a black midi dress with a red flower print.

A large part of Downton Abbey's appeal is down to the gorgeous costumes on show. Michelle might dress very differently to Lady Mary in everyday life, but she's previously shown appreciation for her onscreen wardrobe.

"They're [Mary and her sisters] certainly the bright young things of the '20s. Mary is always very aware of fashions. She looks very stylish, but there's a maturity about her this year because she's a mother and lots has changed,” she previously explained to British magazine Grazia.
