It’s that time again…time to present another Sally Award for an outstanding head-to-toe party look worth emulating. Our latest winner is Lady Mary herself, British actress Michelle Dockery, who looked positively aristocratic in Valentino at the BAFTA celebration for Downton Abbey last week. Michelle accessorized the ultra-modern black and white gown – part of Valentino’s Fall 2015 collection – with pearl and diamond drop earrings and a simple gold minaudière. Soft retro waves, black eyeliner, a glamorous red lip and nude-toned nails punctuated the look beautifully. Here’s how to follow suit…
A black and white minimalist gown
A classic red lipstick
Pearl and diamond drop earrings
A gold minaudière
Beige-toned nail polish
As Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham, once said, “I suppose she has an appropriate costume for every activity.” Indeed.
