Attention Downton Abbey fans getting their corsets in a twist over the new season (here's looking at you, everyone): you can now watch a bootlegged video of the third season promo thanks to an angel of a British television viewer who recorded and uploaded the commercial on the world wide internet. As for what we can gather from the contraband, Michelle Dockery recently told Harper's Bazaar that her character, Lady Mary, would wear Armani in modern times, but don't expect much of that in the upcoming season. What you can expect, however, is plenty of embroidered dresses, exquisite hats, and upturned noses. [Stylelite]
