downton abbey series 3 started in UK


From Photo Gallery

Contains no plot details

Downton Abbey Season 3 has started in the U.K.   Anyone interested in the upcoming season is in luck.

One review I just read said: It’s marcel waves, crushed velvets, and jet beading a-plenty.

The only photos I found, after a less than exhaustive search, show gowns covered from the weather by modern coats.  However, we know it’s 1920’s this season.  Not my favorite for fashion, but perhaps there’s something I can utilize, besides crushed velvet.   And beading. (drool-drool)

Meanwhile, click & enjoy.  And for those lucky U.K. readers, don’t give away the plot too soon!

The Telegraph has a series of articles and some photos, costumes covered almost always, but articles contain plot details.

Daily Mail: A bit about that chauffeur… contains nothing plot-related.

Vogue on makeup used on set (from Jan 2012, so no plot details)
