Downton star rocks black tights

Elizabeth McGovern, who plays Lady Cora in Downton, rocked a thoroughly modern outfit as she attended the opening of West End show The Book of Mormon.

The star ditched the stockings her character will usually favour for some black tights, which she wore with a short skater-style navy blue dress, which certainly wouldn't have got the Earl of Grantham's approval but gets a fashion thumbs up from us.

A bright blue quilted jacket and black leather ankle boots finished off the outfit and ensured that the actress stayed warm on the wintry night.

Elizabeth wasn't the only Downton star walking the red carpet, with Brendan Coyle and her on-screen daughter Laura Carmichael also making an appearance.

Kate Winslet, Yasmin Le Bon and Damian Lewis also attended the show.
