downton abbey laura carmichael michelle dockery golden globes Golden Globes 2014 red carpet: 'Downton Abbey's' Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael almost nailed itLaura Carmichael and Michelle Dockery, the eldest Crawley sisters on “Downton Abbey,” hit the 2014 Golden Globe Awards red carpet looking … well, mostly fabulous.

We could not in good conscience put them on the worst dressed list, but they both slightly missed the mark. With Carmichael, she just needs to lose the weird black stripe down the side of her dress. It’s so randomly placed, just slapped on there in a straight line at her hip. Is it bobby-pinned on? What’s happening?

With Dockery, we love her look except for the color of the dress. She has such gorgeous alabaster skin that the neutral color kind of washes her out. If the dress were slightly darker or perhaps in a bold color, she would look amazing.

Either way, we’re not calling them worst dressed. But the “Downton” ladies did not quite nail it for this awards show.
