Before there was the new season of Downton Abbey to get snuggled up in-front of on a Sunday night, in your POPLIN PJs... there was Parade's End.
Ford Maddox Ford's wartime novel was reworked for the small screen by Tom Stoppard with an impressive cast of names including POPLIN favourite, Rebecca Hall, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
But it was new name, Adelaide Clemens, or rather the character she plays- Valentine Wannop, who became our latest girl-crush. Her flighty, noble character is the perfect foil to the haughty wife played by Rebecca Hall, and we were rooting for romance to blossom between her and the most stiff upper-lipped of all heroes- Christopher Tietjens.
Anyway, this isn't a review of the drama itself, but a quick snapshot of Valentine's wonderful look: a shock of fairy-like blonde hair, ladylike buttoned up collars and a puff of broderie anglaise, finished off with a suffragette sash. How chic!
