Well Played, Felicity Jones


This is flat-out gorgeous.

And very Michelle Dockery to me, somehow. They should play sisters. Or, Felicity can play Michelle in a biopic about her rise from the streets of Stepney to the halls of Downton. It will be called Hickory Dickory Dockery. And it will air on HBO because the first act will have two-hundred f-bombs in it, just for shock value.

    The top’s texture looks inspired by that toy that’s a magnet that attracts those silver spiky things to it (I think from Sharper Image or something), in a way I like.

    I think I would like it better if the bodice sat up a little higher, but it is very lovely.

      Agreed. It looks a little saggy to me. Other than that, it would be pretty.

      •  HKS

        Yup. That’s my issue with it. It looks saggy. Very pretty, but saggy.

    The top is gorgeous but am I bonkers for thinking the skirt looks sort of cheap? Almost like stiff graduation-gown fabric, which is a shame because I am sure it’s not cheap at all.

      I thought it was velvet, but now that you say that, I see that it is probably not. I want it to be velvet. A nice sumptuous one, because I am a sucker for a beautiful, plushy velvet.

      I’m pretty sure that the skirt is ‘Silk Shantung’ because I had a black long skirt custom made in the same fabric! And it’s not cheap!

    I love the gold detail on the shoes that mimics the top.

    NAB. Otherwise love the smoky eye thing here, the way it looks on me when I picture it in my head.

  6. TaraMisu

    Very pretty…. love the shoes! (from what I can see)

    Love her hair and make-up. Hooray for the lipstick. Love the gold/black combo and/but agree that a little more ‘lifting and separating’ up top would be good.

    It’s lovely to see her looking so lovely. Plus, I love the fact that these women are proving that your natural skin tone is beautiful.

    I just needed to comment on the genius and hilariousness of Hickory Dickory Dockery. V. funny indeed.

    OK, I scrolled down to the dress immediately when I saw the top, ignored the name and was then confusedly asking myself: “That’s not Dockery?!” when I hit your commentary. Therefore, I agree that they should at least be sisters in fake life and holy hellcats, she looks amazing!

  11. MeMo

    Haha, you two are geniuses…Hickory Dickery Dockery….haha.

  12. Sajorina

    I ADORE THIS! Dress is GORGEOUS and the shoes, clutch, hair & makeup are perfect with it! This is a WIN! Absolutely FAB! And, now I want to see that movie… Someone please make it happen!

    I like the top better from far away than I do up close. It looks to Christmas-garland-y in the close-up.

    This is lovely, and I like the choice to skip jewelry; it’s its own jewelry!

    Also, her hair is beautiful, and that lipstick color might have been made just for her.

    Pure perfection.
