Downton Abbey does disco!!
What would the Dowager Countess say? The ladies of Downton Abbey have cast off their period costumes in favour of a little disco chic.http://fashion.telegraph.co.uk/article/ ... disco.html
Laura Carmichael, who plays shy Lady Edith, chose the most revealing look in a pair of lurex hotpants and off-the-shoulder top.
She was joined by Jessica Brown-Findlay and Michelle Dockery, otherwise known as Lady Sybil and Lady Mary, and Zoe Boyle, who played Lavinia Swire.
The actresses who play Downton's dowdy maids were also given the opportunity to dress up for the day.
Glamorously attired in a sparkling cocktail dress, Sophie McShera bears little resemblance to her character, the downtrodden Daisy.
Joanna Froggatt (Anna), Amy Nuttall (Ethel) and Clare Calbraith (Jane) completed the line-up.
The second series of Downton Abbey ended with a record 10.7 million viewers and a third is in the works, with eight episodes planned for 2012.
Fans will get another fix in December, when the drama returns for a Christmas special.
