LAURA CARMICHAEL, 27
HOTWearing a Viktor & Rolf dress to the 71st annual Golden Globes awards
It is always a bit of a surprise to see the Downton Abbey actress out of her period-era costumes, but this outfit is a surprise in the best way possible.
The column dress, in graphic white and black, makes her look modern and edgy. Combined with straight hair and smoky eye make-up, she is sleekness personified.
NOTWearing a Vionnet dress to the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
While nice on its own, this sculptural metallic dress does not pair well with Carmichael's fair skintone.
The dishwater-like colour makes her look washed-out and the asymmetrical hem looks like a napkin she forgot to remove after one of Downton's fancy dinner parties.
