Post-Downton Style From Elizabeth McGovern
In the name of research, for my latest Boden blog post, I dragged Mr That’s Not My Age along to see Elizabeth McGovern’s band Sadie and the Hotheads. We both agreed that the 51-year-old has bags of enthusiasm, and looked fantastic. In fact, everything was going well until she started singing – and later dancing. Actually the singing wasn’t that bad, let’s just say the lyrics were a little too cod-country for my liking. And if there is such a thing as ‘mum’ dancing, McGovern has got it down pat. Anyhow. The highlight of the evening was when Brendan Coyle (Downton’s Mr Bates) said excuse me as he brushed past the pair of us. He left early too.
But this isn’t a gig review this is a celebration of style, so click here for more on Lady Cora without the corsets.
