These gorgeous illustrations of Downton Abbey star and all-across British beauty Michelle Dockery have been spreading around the internet like wildfire recently, and they absolutely had to have a place on my little blog. David Downton is one of my favorite fashion illustrators so to see the leading lady from one of my favorite television shows under the skill of his artistry is such a joy. In his illustrations Michelle is wearing Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Oscar de la Renta, respectively. There’s a great piece written by Laura Jacobs for Vanity Fair that captures the mood of Michelle’s sitting. What more could a girl want than to be immortalized by one of the industry’s greatest artists in so many fabulous dresses? I really wish these were available as prints for purchase because I’d be coveting them like crazy.
Speaking of the televised Downton…it’s back! I’m loving the third season so far – and I’m realizing how much I’ve missed these sojourns into the social drama of that fabulous English country estate and its brood of beautiful inhabitants. Are you watching?
