Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt is a red carpet dream at the Venice Film Festival

Glam times three

We love seeing the cast of Downton Abbey on the red carpet and one of its standout stars, Joanne Froggatt, didn't disappoint at the 75th Venice Film Festival, as she served not one but three stunning looks at the annual glitzy event. She kicked proceedings off in a scarlet red one-shouldered gown to attend the glam Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner. With her hair in a loose ponytail, Joanne's dress featured a pleated skirt and floral appliqué detail and metallic heels finished off the look. The event was also attended by Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter. 

A few days later, she tapped into the polka dot trend of the moment in a gorgeous silk polka dot trench by British designer Suzannah, belted at the waist. She added a splash of colour with the cutest red mules, which featured a playful bow detail too.

Then it was onto her most stunning look of the event for the premiere of The Sisters Brothers. Joanne was as elegant as ever in a black feathered pussy-bow dress, complete with lace and velvet detailing.

Downton Abbey fans won't have to wait long to see their favourite cast reunited. In July, it was announced that film production on the movie adaption would begin soon, and Downton actor Dan Stevens sent fans into a frenzy when he shared a picture of himself with former co-stars Michelle Dockery and Allen Leech. He joked about his character making an appearance in the film, with fans speculating he'll appear in the form of a ghost. Some cast members have already confirmed they won't be in the big screen adaptation, including Ed Speelers, who played footman Jimmy Kent. The actor let slip on This Morning that he "hadn't had the call" but wouldn't mind if he wasn't involved in the film. Lily James also confirmed she won't be in the Downton Abbey film, telling People: "I'm sadly not, but I'm so excited for it – I'm going to be front row."
