What do Downton Abbey's Lady Mary Crawley, The Vampire Diaries' Elena Gilbert, and Revenge's resident scheming social climber Ashley Davenport have in common? They — or at least their real-life actress counterparts — were all in attendance at Entertainment Weekly's Pre-SAG Party in LA on Saturday night. Michelle Dockery, Nina Dobrev, and Ashley Madekwe were joined by other small-screen award-season fixtures like Naya Rivera and Jordana Brewster for the evening's festivities. The ladies turned out a fun mix of colorfully printed dresses and one sleeker formfitting number. Nina channeled a breezy Summer vibe in her watercolor-printed Matthew Williamson strapless maxi dress, only to finish off the look with an equally easygoing hairdo and Elie Saab clutch. Meanwhile, the prints kept going by way of Michelle's halter-style, fishtail-hemmed Peter Pilotto cocktail dress, Ashley's cap-sleeved Monique Lhuillier number, and Jordana's black-and-white floor-length gown. And just when you think you're noticing a patterned trend (and you'd be spot on), Naya showed off her enviable figure in an strapless, ink-hued leather Monique Lhuillier dress and nude pumps. Whether it's the flirty fodder that caught your eye or the sexier stuff that will inspire your next night-out ensemble, there are five ladies in the running for last night's best-dressed title. Who did it best?
