Lady Mary maintains excellent posture whilst tipped over on a divan

Lady Mary Crawley, what on earth! That metal corset around your waist must be exceedingly snug, you seem to have toppled right over whilst managing to look strangely upright.

The editors at Harper’s Bazaar spared no expense in devising the photo shoot that goes along with your interview in the September issue. The issue so full of Things We Need, which include shoes that will break our legs, and something called “sport pants.”

Leather might be kind of predictable as kink-wear, I grant you, but when combined with a leaning-back, hand-to-the-throat pose it can only mean one thing: posture porn!

What are you doing to that statue!? This is a metaphor for your relationship with Matthew, isn’t it. You don’t want him to look at other women, yet you stay coyly behind his back, protecting his naked buttocks with your $14,900 J. Mendel gown. Get it together, you two!

I imagine we’ll have less of a chance to dither about you once Shirley MacLaine is on the scene. That’s right, she’s been cast as your American grandmother!

It’s gonna be pearl-clutching time right directly.
