Not what you’d expect for the usual war-time outfits of real Downton Abbey Fashion. However, what you see are several key actresses of the hit show doing disco poses for a Marie Claire magazine photo shoot.
Downton Abbey fashion has a tradition of showcasing wonderful fashion designs since its inception. Its costumes have made a mark in the fashion world. It has brought back the fashion styles of the 1900s, which include costumes, hats and other fashionable accessories.
Actresses Zoe Boyle, Joanne Froggatt, Michelle Dockery and Sophie McShera, who are part of the ITV1 hit drama, are seen here in a photo shoot for Marie Claire magazine. Joanne Froggatt, also known as Anna, is in a wonderful black cocktail dress. She has a necklace and a bracelet that match well her black outfit. All the ladies are in pretty high heeled shoes and fashionable costumes.
From the photo, it’s difficult to recognize Sophie McShera from the drama character she plays as “downtrodden Daisy”, as she stands next to the tall Michelle Dockery. She appears more like a woman of strong character and looks classy in her outfit. She’s in a sleeveless top and a short black skirt with stockings. She holds a golden pentagram which also appears in the design of Michelle’s dress. Both Michelle and Sophie have wonderful bracelets to match their style. There’s a wonderful match between the two ladies in the photo.
Of all the actresses, Zoe Boyle has the best pose, as her outfit makes her stand out from the other three. Her pose portrays her as outgoing and confident. Zoe Boyle wore a wonderful black camisole and gold lame skinny jeans, as she poses for the photo shoot. The photo displays the awesome look of Downton Abbey fashion in 2013. All of the women are barely recognizable as compared with their roles in the drama.
