Lady Mary’s Wedding Gown
Finally, Lady Mary and Matthew get married! (And get to sleep in the same bed, wink-wink.)
Costume designer Caroline McCall designed the dress, and according to Elle UK, it was the most expensive Downton Abbey costume ever created. “I knew how the light would come through the window and where her father would be standing as he gazed up at her,” McCall told Elle. “I wanted her to twinkle in the light, so I infused the lace with a delicate silver thread to create a subtle iridescence.” The headpiece Michelle Dockery is wearing is a 45-carat stunner worth $200,000, People is reporting.
If Kate Middleton’s wedding gown didn’t already seal the deal, this one will: Sleeves are back.
