Ralph Lauren on the Downton Abbey Runway

If you watched the season premiere of Downton Abbey on Sunday, you may have caught Ralph Lauren's sponsorship message, but did you catch the runway show?

The photographic evidence appeared on Facebook two months ago, but thanks to some seriously late-breaking news from Racked, I'm just now privy to the fact that Lauren turned the Crawley estate into his own personal runway. As a follow-up to his Fall 2013 show in New York, Lauren presented the collection for a second time at the real Downtown Abbey, otherwise known as Highclere Castle in Hampshire.
