Didn’t Carson tell them the dress code? With Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael in Downton Abbey, Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael opted for a summer casual look at Elizabeth McGovern’s 60th birthday in Mayfair
- Trio was spotted in the exclusive Scott’s restaurant in the expensive London area
- Dockery, 39, was spotted arriving at birthday party in chauffeured limousine
- Carmichael, 35, aka Lady Edith, arrived on foot in a cooling black linen dress
What would Mr. Carson the butler say? Three stars from Downton Abbey at a birthday party and not a evening dress or tiara in sight!
Instead, Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael opted for a summery casual look as they celebrated her 60th birthday with Elizabeth McGovern at Scott’s in Mayfair last week.
Once described as Britain’s greatest restaurant, the glitzy seafood restaurant was the perfect setting for the glamorous trio to enjoy a chilled lunch on one of the hottest days of the year.
Michelle, 39, who played Lady Mary Crawley, and Elizabeth, who was Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, arrived in a chauffeured limousine.
Laura Carmichael, 35, who played Lady Edith in Downton Abbey, saw her leave on foot in a cooling black linen dress, sunglasses and sandals

Laura, 35, who played Lady Edith, arrived on foot in a cooling black linen dress, sunglasses and sandals, carrying an elegant bouquet for her opponent.
After the two-hour lunch, Michelle, in a leopard-print sleeveless top, baggy jeans and sandals, and Elizabeth, dressed in a trendy gray up-do with a comfortable shirt and pants combination and white trainers, climbed back aboard their limousine. .
Laura followed with a waiter who brought her a tote bag.
It led onlookers to wonder if the actress had asked for a ‘doggy bag’, an increasing trend among diners to curb food waste – the current focus of a Mail on Sunday campaign.
“I couldn’t tell if it was a doggy bag or a gift item, but the waiter was happy to help,” a fellow diner said. “The three of them seemed to have had a great time.”
