  • Michelle Dockery is the belle of the Downton Abbey ball, as the TV show's stars raise heaps of money for ChildLine...

    Michelle Dockery led a glam set of Downton Abbey stars in London last night as the ITV show hosted their ChildLine Ball at The Savoy Hotel.

    Hitting the swanky venue in their finest frocks, the Downton Abbey ladies, including Cara Theobold, MyAnna Buring and Phyllis Logan, were dressed to impress.

    There was certainly cause for celebration too as they helped to raise over £660,000 for the NSPCC charity, the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people.

    Doubling as a glamorous red carpet affair, Michelle stunned in mid-length LBD, teamed with a classic red lip and her voluminous brunette bob. Gorgeous!

    Meanwhile Cara Theobold wowed with head-to-toe velvet in a floor-length navy frock. 

    Guests at the event also bid for the chance to win exclusive Downton Abbey goodies, as well as meet and greets with the cast and a 5 star Downton Abbey experience at Highclere Castle. Want.

    As if we ever had any doubt over this lot’s ability to look uber-glam, we’re loving their modern-day attire just as much.

    Talking at the ChildLine event, Downton Abbey’s Rob James-Collier, who plays Thomas Barrow, said: “It was a privilege to host the Downton Abbey ChildLine Ball and it was really heart-warming to see such a wealth of support for this fantastic cause.” 

    Allen Leech, known for his role as Tom Branson, added: “The money raised will go towards helping some of the UK’s most vulnerable children, many of whom have nowhere else to turn, so I’m delighted to have been involved.”

    Congratulations to all the Downton Abbey stars for being so fabulous.
