GET THE LOOK: How to be a proper Lady like Michelle Dockery

on in Fashion

Because looking as good as a celeb doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Michelle Dockery

We were so happy to see the return of Downton Abbey (even if our favourite chap isn’t in it anymore), and you can usually find us glued to the tellybox on Sunday evenings. We also can’t help but notice that Lady Mary aka Michelle Dockery is looking particularly good off-screen too, especially at the Downton Abbey Childline Ball last week.

We loved the body hugging midi dress, pretty strap detailing and shocking contrast lipstick. So we’ve hunted high and low through the world of eco fashion to find you some alternatives so you can get her look…

Dress like Michelle Dockery
Be show stopping in this 1980s Black Midi Cocktail Dress from ASOS Marketplace (above centre). This is a gorgeous 80’s black vintage party dress in crushed black crepe with a fitted body con style. The bust is structured with pretty ruching and striking v-shaped cut out sections. And because this is a one-off vintage item, you know you won’t be upstaged by someone in the same outfit!

If you’re opting for a midi dress it’s essential that you wear a pair of high heels .These London Rebel Vegan Suede Look Court Shoe from Fashion Conscience (above right) are perfect for a very classic sophisticated look. They can also be work with a more casual outfit to give it a sharp edge. They’re also made from vegan materials so you can rest assured that you’re doing your bit for the planet too.

Finally slick on a coat of NVEY ECO’s Advanced Care Lipstick (above left) to leave your lips looking vibrant yet natural. With over 16 shades to choose from you’re sure to find one to suit your skintone. Composed of an organic Castor Oil base mixed with soothing safflower, beeswax and Vitamin E, your smackers are such to stay soft and smooth. All the ingredients are organic too!

And now here’s the trailer for Season 4 of Downton Abbey. Enjoy…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
