The Downton ladies do love their Erdem.

And with good reason. Despite the fact that it anagrams to merde, that is perfect on her. It NABs (technically that should be just NAB, because it’d just be “Needs A Bracelet,” but I’ve decided that with our acronyms it’s the Wild West up in here and I’m getting cocky with my pistols), and the shoes look a tiny bit more like a bedroom fetish she couldn’t remove without taking the skin along with it. But it’s nice to see Edith looking happy. I’m sure Laura Carmichael does just fine in real life, but to compensate for her alter-ego’s travails, I find myself wanting her to squire around town the most absurdly hot person of her desired gender that she can find. The BAFTAs are a good place to start shopping.
