As I'll be swapping Downton for Homeland next Sunday, I'd better get this post in quick. It's Lady Cora without the corsets. Actually, anyone who's been watching the latest series will know that we've reached the 1920s and the frou-frou and restrictive foundation garments have been replaced by chic drop-waist dresses and silk stockings. So. Elizabeth McGovern, 51, the former Brat Pack actress who was engaged to Sean Penn in her twenties, has recently played the Isle of White Festival with her band, Sadie and the Hotheads, attended Anna Wintour's London fundraiser for President Barack Obama and gone from country house to catwalk at fashion week:
