Lady Edith wears a daring emerald-green dress in a 1920s bohemian style, for her secret meeting with her lover Michael Gregson, the publisher of a society magazine, The Sketch, in London. Taking place during series four, they publicly kiss risking scandalous exposure.
Lady Edith’s revealing chiffon skirted dress is paired with a bodice decorated with gold beading and embroidery inspired by peacock feathers and tied with a sash at her hips. The modern, glamorous style indicates how Lady Edith’s identity is evolving as she becomes an independent working woman. Her fashionable outfit is accessorized with matching green shoes, an emerald and gold necklace that trails down her back to her waist and two pearl-adorned hair-slides.
