Laura looked magnificent in Miu Miu

Downton newbie Laura, who plays Myrna Dalgleish, certainly made her presence known in the absolutely incredible gown by Miu Miu. When a dress is embellished, has a sheer skirt, a cape and sequins, you just know it's going to be remembered forever. Jimmy Choo heels and makeup by Armani gave her the perfect finishing touch.
