While "Downton Abbey" actress Michelle Dockery may get the most attention for her fashion choices, her on-screen sister Laura Carmichael, aka Lady Edith, has quietly emerged as the show's edgier style star.

While Dockery tends to lean towards more classically feminine looks by labels like Erdem and Lanvin (which suit her well), Carmichael is more likely to take risks and have a little fun, favoring cool British labels like Christopher Kane.

Take the darling sky blue fit and flare dress by Jonathan Saunders, which Carmichael wore Monday to a photocall promoting the upcoming fifth season of "Downton." The actress played up its '60s silhouette with some very '60s matching blue eyeshadow. With her blonde, slightly teased hair, the look could have felt too literal were it not for the dress's modern print and fabrication and the classic navy single-soled pumps she paired it with.
