Michelle's scored serious style points in her elegant navy and black brocade frock
Michelle Dockery continued her elegant style reign at the Changing Faces Gala last night in this sparkly Fifties-style fdress.
The 32-year-old Downton Abbey star's chic navy and black brocade frock was very Lady Mary-on-a-night-out, with its full midi skirt and flattering high neckline.
A gold metallic belt made the perfect waist-pincher for Michelle's pretty retro frock, while pointed nude court shoes, dainty gold spiral earrings and minimal make-up were all it took to complete her glamorous gala look.
Unlike the class divide on-screen, the London bash saw the cast of both staff and the Crawley family partying together. Joining Michelle at the bash was co-star Lily James, who looked striking in a vintage-style red floor-length dress, Allen Leech and the gorgeous Sophie McShera.
Filming on Series 5 Downton Abbey started earlier this year, but isn't scheduled to return to ITV until the autumn. Richard E Grant, Rade Serbedzija and Anna Chancellor will all be joining the cast.
