Lady Mary may be working through the seven stages of grief on Season 4 of Downton Abbey, but the actress who plays her is living the high life off set!

Michelle Dockery recently headed to the U.S. and thankfully, the 32-year-old actress joined Instagram before her big trip so we could get a play-by-play of her travels.

Recently, Michelle’s been rubbing elbows with some of Hollywood’s elite. While attending one of the various events surrounding January 12’s Golden Globes, Michelle stalked ran into the one and only Usher. The best part: She had the same reaction we would have had!

“YEAH! #swoon,” she captioned their selfie together. While Usher looks sharp in his sparkly graphic tux, the fashion win goes to Michelle for her amazing scalloped neckline.

Next, Lady Dockers met up with famous funny man Jim Carrey and even got creative in the hashtags: “#tellscarlettidogiveadamn #comedyhero.” And they say Lady Mary has no sense of humor!

The ladies shared a table during last night’s Golden Globes and although Downton lost out to Breaking Bad for Best Television Series— Drama, but that’s okay. The ladies of the house look better in a gown than Bryan Cranston any day.

As for that gown Michelle wore, it’s one of our favorites from the evening. The strapless Oscar de la Renta number perfectly set off Michelle’s porcelain features and stunning figure. We’re just glad the Dowager didn’t see it. She’d have fainted from the amount of skin showing!

With the SAGs up next on January 18 and Downton the reigning winner for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, we can hardly wait to see what pictures Michelle shares next!
