Laura Carmichael, 31, and Elizabeth McGovern, 56, joined their former Downton Abbey co-stars for a mini reunion as they attended a charity gala on Tuesday night.
The duo were joined by several other cast members from the ITV period drama, as well as show creator Julian Fellowes, as they attended the star-studded Walking With The Wounded event at BAFTA headquarters in London's Piccadilly.
Laura – who portrayed the aristocratic Lady Edith Crawley – looked effortlessly chic in a black midi skirt and top with a heart and arrow emblazoned on the front.

Speaking on Loose Women on Tuesday, Phyllis said she had just as much knowledge of a proposed film as anyone else.
She said: 'Do you know what they call actors? We're like mushrooms, we are kept in the dark and occasionally popped in the manure.
'I feel so bad because I would love to say we start shooting next week. You should get in touch with the producers for god sake's. You know as much as I do.'
In December 2017, the actress revealed to The Mail on Sunday that a new script has been completed and filming dates arranged for 2018.

'To have a last hurrah with all the characters, going back to the castle and seeing all the old muckers will be fantastic. I’m certainly up for it.'
It is understood Highclere Castle, near Newbury in Berkshire, where the original series was filmed, will be closed to visitors from May 30 to July 7, thought to be for exterior and interior filming.

Downton Abbey shut its doors for the last time on Christmas Day 2015, but millions of fans have been hoping for a movie version of the drama.
NBC Universal International Studios had hoped to start filming in 2017 with 20 of the original cast members, including Hugh Bonneville and Michelle Dockery, who played Lady Mary Crawley.
