If you can't take your eyes off the gorgeous Crawley ladies during Downton Abbey, you're not alone. Reportedly airing Season 5 in Australia in the next few months, and finishing after Season 6 (sob), the show has single-handedly brought back a fervent interest in Edwardian and '20s-era fashion and beauty, which could require hours of preparation for one ensemble. Dive into a time before nylons and quick-drying nail polish, and you'll see how much work it would have taken to make Lady Mary beautiful. (Hint: dirty hair is involved.) It's all enough to make a Turkish diplomat lose his breath.

I love this show! I am inspired by the entire time period. I just picked up some pieces from the Downton Abbey, Heritage Lace Collection for my home.
