In real life she lives with her architect boyfriend and on-screen she finally got her man after Matthew Crawley proposed in the snow at Christmas.

But that's not to say that Michelle Dockery doesn't appreciate a bit of arm candy from time to time – and with that line-up, it's hardly surprising.

The Downton Abbey star, 30, was a guest at the Burberry Prorsum catwalk show as part of Milan's Men's Fashion Week and was surrounded by handsome young rising British stars.

Look away, Matthew Crawley! Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary in Downton Abbey, posed for a snap with rising British stars George Craig, Roo Panes and Rob Pryor at a Burberry show in Milan

As she took her front row seat at the show for the Spring/Summer 2013 collection by British designer Christopher Bailey, she was joined by George Craig, lead singer of band One Night Only and the former boyfriend of Harry Potter star Emma Watson.

He is also a model for Burberry as is Rob Pryer, who sat next to George, and singer songwriter Roo Paynes, who is fronting the fashion house's autumn/winter campaign.

But if Michelle was excited about her
handsome fellow attendees, she certainly didn't show it as she sat
engrossed in the new collection.

She was dressed in a very unusual outfit that many could not pull off but looked lovely on her tall, slender frame.

Unusual combination: But Michelle was able to pull of the outfit which included a long teal velvet skirt and heeled brogues

She wore a calf-length dark teal velvet skirt which she accessorised with a skinny tan belt tied in a bow at the front.

She
teamed that with a dark grey T-shirt which was decorated with a
bejeweled owl design and she wore brown heeled brogues on her feet.

Michelle was taking a break from filming the third series of Downton Abbey in which she plays Lady Mary Crawley.

It was last on screen for a Christmas
special in which Lady Mary finally found love after Matthew Crawley,
the heir to her father's fortune, proposed to her in a very romantic
moment in the snow.

And
having worn some stunning costumes during the first two series, which
were set between 1912 and 1918, Michelle said they had finally moved on
to more comfortable attire.

She
said: 'We’re over halfway through the filming, and we’re moving into
the Twenties now – it’s very feminine and the corsets are definitely
softer. we feel much more free!'
