Michelle Dockery is an English actress and singer best known for her role in the now classic PBS TV series “Downtown Abbey” telling the story of an English aristocrat family and their servants. This drama series takes place before and after the first war under the reign of king George V. Michelle Dockery plays Lady Mary Josephine Crawley the eldest daughter of the Downtown Abbey estate’s owner, Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham. Mary is impetuous, stubborn, spoiled but at times surprisingly vulnerable and sensitive giving her character a lot of complexity and charm. The sophisticated and distant beauty of the actress is addictive like the heroin she interprets, and I look forward to seeing her very soon in other roles. If you haven’t watched the show yet don’t waist any minute, the first season is available on Netflix.

The first time I heard about Lily Collins, I was not excited at all, I was thinking great another famous “daddy little girl” (her father is singer, song writer Phil Collins). Now the more I see Lily, the more I like her innocent beauty and flawless skin which makes her the perfect choice to interpret the legendary Snow White in “Mirror Mirror”(now playing in theaters). I haven’t seen any of her movies yet (she played in “Abduction” starring Taylor Lautner in 2011), so I don’t know if she has the real potential to stay around and make a name for herself on the acting scene, but I won’t be surprised if she becomes a designers favorite and we see her in prestigious ad campaigns (Miu Miu??)
