The Golden Globe nominee was joined by co-star Elizabeth McGovern, who plays her mother, the Countess of Grantham.

The American actress opted for a neon pink, off-the-shoulder dress by US designer Zac Posen.

She completed the look with diamond earrings, necklace and bracelet and a white Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ box clutch.

Laura Carmichael, 33, who depicts Lady Edith Crawley, opted for a chic sleeveless black dress by Monse with a dramatic thigh split and long train.

Laura’s high-neck gown also featured a hand-shaped brooch on one of the shoulders, adding a whimsical touch to her otherwise simplistic gown.

The trio were joined on the Leicester Square Cineworld red carpet by Hugh Bonneville (Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham) and Allen Leech (Tom Branson), who looked sharp in their classic black tuxedos and bow ties.
