The 2013 SAG Awards took place at the Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday, the latest glamorous outing for awards season favourites. Anne Hathaway added another award to her collection when she scooped up the honour for outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role. During her speech, Anne started to tear up as she thanked her mother, who is also an actress, for inspiring her and hopefully giving Anne some support on the award ballot. She said, "Thanks mum for voting me, or at least she better have!" Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey both won awards for their final seasons of 30 Rock, with the latter thanking her friend and Golden Globes co-host, Amy Poehler, for giving birth to Lena Dunham. Ben Affleck took home another big win when he and the cast of Argo won outstanding performance from an ensemble in a motion picture.
Other highlights included Jennifer Lawrence winning outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role for Silver Linings Playbook, marking her first SAG Award win. Dick Van Dyke graciously accepted his lifetime achievement award while thanking all of the actors in the room for taking acting to another level. Claire Danes celebrated her new mum status when she accepted the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series, telling the audience that it not only takes a village to raise a child but also to put together a TV show. The cast of Downton Abbey took home one of the biggest surprises of the night when they won outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series, beating out Homeland and Mad Men for the win.

Michelle Dockery has vamped it up for today's SAGs, walking the red carpet in this vintage sheer-spliced black satin gown by Chado Ralph Rucci. The high neckline may be covered up, but the strategically placed inserts inject a sexy peek-a-side-boob effect to her otherwise elegant look. A gold and diamond wrap snake cuff and drop earrings add a little after-dark glamour to her ensemble. What's your call on the Downton Abbey star's SAGs get-up?

Michelle Dockery looked stunning when she wore a black vintage Chado Ralph Rucci gown to the SAG Awards in LA today. The Downton Abbey actress is up for one of the night's big awards, outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series, where she will face off against Claire Danes, Jessica Lange, Julianna Margulies and her co-star, Maggie Smith, to earn the honour. Michelle and her Downton Abbey co-stars are also nominated for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series. This mark's Michelle's first SAG Awards ceremony and her first time ever being nominated by the Screen Actors Guild.
Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery went for a sleek, romantic, gilded gown by French designer Alexandre Vauthier today. Its body-con white skirt gave way to its intricately worked, semisheer golden top, complete with high collar and strong shoulders. We can't help but think that its Baroque, almost Edwardian embellishments would be perfect for a 21st-century dinner at Downton. In short, Michelle lived up to her TV character's high sartorial standards. Not many jewels were needed to complement her already standout gown — just a gold bangle, emerald cocktail ring, and emerald earrings, in fact. She finished her look with a pair of burgundy pointy-toe pumps. What do you think of Michelle's gown?

Can't get enough of Downton Abbey's tea dresses and elaborate hairstyles? Join the club. The show has single-handedly brought back a fervent interest in Edwardian-era fashion and beauty, which could require hours of preparation for one ensemble. Dive into a time before nail polish and nylons and you'll see how much work it would have taken to make Lady Mary beautiful. (Hint: dirty hair is involved.) It's all enough to make a Turkish diplomat lose his breath.

In February, Downton Abbey returns to our TV screens for a third season. And while the Brits have flooded the Internet with spoilers, the only thing we're willing to reveal is this: '20s beauty has taken over the estate. From flapper hairstyles to rouge pots, the women are leaving the Edwardian era behind for a more modern look. It all started with the arrival of Mary's curling contraption last season, but now you can expect to see everyone with cropped cuts and formfitting fashion (except the Dowager Countess, of course). And perhaps you'll get to see what a '20s wedding looks like when you tune in . . .
Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery was bold in blue on the Emmy red carpet today — the actress wore a floor-length Louis Vuitton gown with a sheer neckline and accessorised with an elegant amethyst bracelet and gold box clutch. The look is a far cry from her period garb on Downton Abbey — so what do you think of it?

The Emmys party got started early at a special reception for writer nominees on Thursday night at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Downton Abbey was well-represented with Joanne Froggatt, Michelle Dockery, and Brendan Coyle. Jessica Paré, meanwhile, was on hand supporting Mad Men. Both programs earned multiple nods at this year's Emmys. Downton's earned a nomination for outstanding drama series, as well as six acting honours. Michelle's in contention for outstanding lead actress in a drama series, Joanne's up for outstanding supporting actress, and Brendan's up for outstanding supporting actor. Mad Men, the outstanding drama series for four years running, could win a fifth time. It's also up in eight other categories. Make sure you check back over the weekend for any pre-Emmys coverage, and on Monday for all the action as it happens.
