Emmy Fashion 2012: 'Downton Abbey' Star Michelle Dockery Wears Louis Vuitton on Red Carpet

Everyone was waiting to see if  Michelle Dockery would go Downton to her first Emmys as a nominee in, let's say, staid Ralph Lauren--or if she would go with something modern.

In the end, the gown she went with is a cobalt Louis Vuitton with an illusion neckline,  so the color and the style--fishtail mermaid--are right on the trend.

It's Louis Vuitton's only gown at the Emmys, and it's rare that this Parisian label--about to show in Paris next week--dresses anyone in television, so Dockery can consider herself as full-on A-List. Wearing her hair up on top of her head made Dockery look remarkably different than her Lady Mary Downton Abbey character.
