You may recall seeing this dress worn by Lady Grantham in episode 2. In fact, Clio asked for a better shot and we get that in this episode (hooray!). It's a great design and you can just see a bit of the back in the mirror.
Several of you were asking me for my thoughts on the third series as I've been a bit mum on plot lines as to avoid spoiling it for my U.S. readers who won't get to view the series until January. What I can say is that I am very happy with this season. The plot is really exciting and I am LOVING the costumes. There is some really good character development and it seems less soap opera-ish than season 2 (hello distant relative from Canada who was on the Titanic....). Don't get me wrong, it's still plenty dramatic this season but harkens back to the jaw-dropping plots of season 1. It's also great to see the characters maturing, new alliances and new enemies forming and definitely some tear-jerking moments.
The costumes from this episode are spectacular! I love, love, love them all...here are my favourites:
Ok, this one might be my favourite! Check out the detailed embroidery on that collar. Love the asymmetrical matching hat:
I love that Lady Edith's colour is orange. She looks so stunning in those shades. Can I also just say how much I am enjoying the new waved bobs!
What about you? Which of the costumes is your favourite?
