And you thought you were a Downton Abbey stan. The Telegraph reports that Ralph Lauren spent this past weekend at Britain’s Highclere Castle, also known as the setting for the hit series. With wife Ricky, sons David and Andrew, and daughter-in-law Lauren Bush Lauren in tow, he descended on Downton in natty style: the white tie and tails ensemble of Anna Wintour’s dreams for evening, and a country ensemble consisting of a Fair Isle sweater, blazer, and jodhpurs for day. Given that the show inspired his fall 2012 collection, this display of Anglophilia shouldn’t come as a surprise.
