HARPER’S BAZAAR – Go behind the scenes with the female cast of Downton Abbey during their cover shoot for the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Shot against the beautiful backdrop of Firle Place in Sussex, watch as photographer Alexi Lubormirski captures the actresses in a series of beautiful gowns and fine jewellery, listen to interviews with actresses Laura Carmichael and Lily James, and witness the theatrical photo shoot come to life – from hair and make-up, to costume, set and lighting.

HARPER’S BAZAAR – Five series in, and Downton Abbey remains one of the most successful and captivating dramas on TV, with 120 million viewers worldwide. In our August issue, we catch up with its stellar cast of actresses.

Whatever their place in the story – upstairs, downstairs, or in a lady’s chamber – women reign supreme in this most triumphantly successful of television dramas. Bazaar meets the stellar cast of actresses as they gather together again for a fifth series of the globally acclaimed show

The room is suddenly alive. ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’ is pulsing through the speakers and the ladies of Downton Abbey have started to foot-tap and hip-sway and, in the case of Mrs Hughes the housekeeper, perform an impressive shimmy, arms swinging at her sides, not quite the full Beyoncé but not far off. Except she isn’t Mrs Hughes today, she’s herself, the actress Phyllis Logan, and for once she gets to wear a posh frock and be in the same room as her mistresses, Ladies Cora, Mary, Edith, Rose. They have all (well, nearly all; just Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton are missing) been meticulously arranged for a group photograph in the drawing-room of Firle Place in Sussex. Logan to the left, Michelle Dockery (Mary) central, Lily James (Rose) elegantly stretched on the floor – nine women in floor-length gowns – and the sudden wave of movement is like a painting coming to life. Finally, they are still and – click – they’re captured.

When you see all these women together, you realise how, both upstairs and downstairs at Downton Abbey, it is the women who rule. Carson and Lord Grantham are officially in charge of their respective domains, but there’s a growing sense in both places that the women are staging a kind of benign takeover, finding their roles in a mid-1920s Britain that is very gradually warming to the idea that women might, after all, have something to offer beyond child-bearing and adorning a dinner table, that they might have something to say.

On the July issue of Vanity Fair, cover star Shailene Woodley headlines a portfolio of up-and-coming stars we like to call “The New Wave.” Photographed by Miguel Reveriego, these rising talents have a huge variety of major projects on the horizon, from new spins on classic fairy tales to high-profile sequels to some of the summer’s biggest potential blockbusters. And they come with just as much variety in their backgrounds; some, like Jaden and Willow Smith, are children of Hollywood royalty, while others, like Jack Reynor and Eve Hewson, have traveled from overseas to work with some of our biggest directors. No matter where these actors and actresses came from, we only see them going one place from here: Up. And up. And up. See them all in the July issue—available this week on newsstands in New York and L.A. and for download in the digital edition—and scroll down for a sample of what’s inside.
