In Pictures: The leading ladies of ‘Downton Abbey’ on and off the small screen

If you’re as hooked on the tear-jerking British series ‘Downton Abbey’ as we are, we’d imagine you’re waiting with bated breath to see the aftermath of season three’s tragic conclusion.

Being that the period drama is set in post-Edwardian England, we’ve become quite accustomed to seeing its leading ladies with finger-waved hair donning rather demure frocks – except, of course, when the affluent Crawley ladies dress in their finest for dinner each night.

Whether you’re rooting for the matriarchs upstairs, the downstairs servants or both, we’re taking a look at our favourite leading ladies on and off the small screen.

And oh how different they look outside of the Abbey!
