Michelle Dockery turned heads as she arrived at the Downton Abbey premiere in a glittering gold gown.

The actress, who plays Lady Mary Crawley in the period drama and the big screen adaptation, looked dazzling in the shimmering, floor-length column, which left one shoulder bare.

She teamed the eye-catching dress with hoop earrings and wore her dark hair swept back from her face.

Dockery was joined at the screening at Cineworld in Leicester Square, London by co-stars including Laura Carmichael, Elizabeth McGovern and Hugh Bonneville.

Carmichael was elegant in a high-necked black dress that showed off her legs, while McGovern provided a bright splash of colour in pink.

Tuppence Middleton was fashion forward in a black ruffled dress with a deep plunging neckline, while Geraldine James was chic in a white trouser suit.
