Michelle Dockery dazzles on Downton Abbey red carpet

Michelle Dockery turned heads as she arrived at the Downton Abbey premiere in a glittering gold gown.

The actress, who plays Lady Mary Crawley in the period drama and the big screen adaptation, looked dazzling in the shimmering, floor-length column, which left one shoulder bare.

She teamed the eye-catching dress with hoop earrings and wore her dark hair swept back from her face.

Dockery was joined at the screening at Cineworld in Leicester Square, London by co-stars including Laura Carmichael, Elizabeth McGovern and Hugh Bonneville.
