Lady Edith Crawley, Downton Abbey

It was so WONDERFUL to see Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) singled out for praise on last evening’s Downton Abbey.

Why am I such a “Lady Edith” fan? Gotta love the underdog, right — but, really, the character of Lady Edith and the looks of Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith cries out to me: Fanny Smith!

Dear Fanny could be a similar sister-out. Augusta and Emma, the two eldest Smith sisters, were often paired together. The three little ones - Eliza, Charlotte, and Maria – were usually thought of as “the children”. So young Fanny, was sometimes all on her own.

The first season of Downton Abbey, being set earlier than World War I, was just perfect for showing off Lady Edith’s upswept hair and opulent gowns.

 

 

 

 

Middle sisters rule!
