Irene Adler's Wardrobe

I'm not sure if everybody caught the second season premiere of Sherlock, BBC's modern take on Sherlock Holmes. It's an utterly fantastic show that I definitely recommend anyone to check out while they wait for Downton Abbey. There's only three episodes per season so it's not going to take long to catch up. Also for Doctor Who fans, this show is written and created by Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss.

The newest episode is titled "A Scandal in Belgravia" and if you know your Victorian detective novels, then you would know this was based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Scandal in Bohemia in which Irene Adler appears. No worries for spoilers here as only her wardrobe will be featured in this post. Let's just say that Benedict Cumberbatch blows my mind with his acting and delivery. Brilliant stuff. In spite of Cumberbatch's brilliance, he did not manage to distract me from noticing how gorgeous Irene Adler's wardrobe is. Portrayed by Lara Pulver (who I could not believe was the horrible fairy godmother in True Blood but no worries she's good here), she was utterly spellbinding and super seductive and intriguing. Not going to say anything more about her character, but I totally dig the modern Irene Adler. Rachel McAdam's version is down right embarrassing in comparison. Also did I mention that she is always perfectly coiffed?
