Downton Gets the Message that Wine Is this Season’s ‘It’ Color:
Lady Mary alone stepped out in at least three separate wine-colored outfits, ranging from gowns to outerwear. Lady Grantham pulled out a square-necked number at dinner time, too. Nothing like some family color coordination!
On another note, while getting a pedi and flipping through US Weekly yesterday, we learned that the sleeveless, beaded dress Mary wears (at left) is a period rental that Catherine Zeta-Jones also wore in the 2007 movie Death Defying Acts.
It’s also worth noting that the costume designer from seasons 1 and 2, Sarah Buxton, has left the show, leaving her former assistant, Caroline McCall, in charge of costumes this season. (Check out the full costume scoop at the Daily Beast.)
