Michelle Dockery Steps Out Of Her Downton Abbey Shadow In Stella McCartney

Michelle Dockery is officially our favourite new fashion icon...

Michelle Dockery was out to prove her red carpet mettle last night, as the she took to the Winter Whites Centrepoint Gala in floor-length Stella McCartney.

A perfect designer for the Downton Abbey star, Michelle worked the sculpted neckline with ease, as she accessorised with all-black details.

Not without her signature slick of pink lipstick, the British actress looked positively breathtaking for the event.

Finding her feet in fashion in between filming the ITV drama, Michelle has been stunning the style pack after stepping out of Lady Mary’s shadow.

‘I love playing her because of her behavior at times. I find she can be quite shocking,’ she told Boston Common.  

‘She has a real bite to her that I love playing, because I don’t think I could ever be that way. That’s the joy of being an actor - you can tap into those sides of yourself that feel unfamiliar.'

With this year’s Christmas special set to be the talk of TV once again, Michelle still misses her co-star Dan Stevens, whose character, Matthew Crawley, was killed off in the 2012 special.

‘It was just really strange not having Stevens around because three years is a long time to work with someone so closely.

'There was a real sense of isolation with the character in the first episode because Mary has very much retreated. She’s become a bit of a recluse. It's almost how it felt for me.'

Glammed up in Valentino, Armani and Jil Sander for the recent shoot, the fashion world has its arms wide open for the Downton star
