Ditching the apron: Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt leads the glamour stakes on the red carpet at Evening Standard British Film Awards
We're used to seeing her looking drab decked out in an apron with no make-up and her hair scraped back.
So it's no wonder Downton Abbey's chief house maid, played by Joanne Froggatt, decided to give herself a complete image overhaul at Monday's Evening Standard British Film Awards.
The actress, who plays Anna Smith in the hit period drama, looked ravishing as she stepped on to the red carpet dressed in a floor length gown.
Image overhaul: Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt was the belle of the ball at the Evening Standard British Film Awards on Monday night
Wearing the sheer, lace number, Joanne looked angelic despite giving a glimpse of her lingerie in the shirt-style design.
And to finish off the look, the 31-year-old wore her blonde hair down and wavy, adding to the feminine theme of the ensemble.
Lady in red: Downton star Elizabeth McGovern, who plays Lady Cora, brightened up the carpet at the event in Westminster in her red prom dress
Coy: Elizabeth flashed an over-the-shoulder pose as she made her way inside
Matching it with a blue clutch bag and gold heels, the actress wore a slit showing off her legs at the back of the frock.
And she wasn't the only Downton Abbey girl to win admiration at the glitzy event.
Her co-star Elizabeth McGovern vamped her outfit up by wearing ravishing red and a cheeky grin to match.
Touch of class: Down star Jessica Brown-Findlay, who plays Lady Sybil, looked demure and chic in her long black dress with lace trim
The strapless dress looked immaculate as she teamed it with scarlet lips and strappy black heels with tights.
But unlike Joanne, she stuck to her period look in the show with her hairstyle, similar to that of her character Cora, Countess of Grantham.
Meanwhile Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell also added a touch of colour to her outfit, but opted for black trousers rather than a frock.
Keeping it simple: Clemence Poesy and Olivia Colman turned out in force to the ceremony at the London Film Museum

French Harry Potter actress Clemence Poesy kept it simple and ensured she was wrapped up in the chilly weather with her beige coat and black trouser combo.
And she also looked fresh-faced as she carried a simple large black clutch bag.
TV presenter Sarah Jane Crawford upped her style stakes with a figure hugging black mini dress, completing the look with a high ponytail and lashings of red lipstick.
Big night: John Hurt took his wife to the event to watch him pick up the coveted Lifetime Achievement award
Taking it all in: Warwick Davis also came armed with his wife to the bash in chilly London…
While Heartbeat's Christine Bottomley kept it simple in her own LBD, turning up on trend in a lace gown with black tights and heels.
But it wasn't only the ladies dressing to impress at the event.
John Hurt, who was picking up the coveted lifetime achievement award from the ceremony, looked dapper in a suit, tie and glasses as he showed up with his wife.
Life's Too Short star Warwick Davis also brought his wife along to the festivities, wearing a black suit while she opted for an aubergine strapless dress and black tailored jacket.
