Downton Abbey withdrawal: It's real and it's happening to us. We miss the dresses, the never-quite-actualized sexual tension, the long and drawn out subplots, and the accents that make every line sound important. We also obviously miss the hair and makeup inspiration it provides — and the style lessons the characters give us: "No one wants to kiss a girl in black," while laughably offensive on several different levels in a modern context, was also a great reminder that there are other colors we could be wearing. Someone needed to say it.
If you, like us, think the moments before Downton returns would be best spent by taking a page from our favorite characters and basking in some bubble baths, scented candles, and luxury soaps, you'll be pleased to know that it's now officially possible. Starting in October, all you U.K. ladies will be able to primp like a Crawley with Downton Abbey-themed beauty products. Usually we roll our eyes at television-inspired swag, but this stuff looks amazing — we'd want it even it wasn't inspired by our favorite period piece. Fingers crossed this makes its way across the pond. (RadioTimes)
