MICHELLE Dockery lets out a thigh of relief as she poses for a magazine photoshoot.
The actress, 38, smouldered in a sleek black dress and high heels for Net-A-Porter’s digital magazine Porter.
The dress’s racy slit makes a change from the 1920s outfits she was used to in Downton Abbey.
She is promoting her new film The Gentlemen, directed by Guy Ritchie. It is due in cinemas next month.
Michelle has found love with Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s brother – four years after her fiancé tragically died of cancer.
The Downton Abbey actress has been dating Jasper, 31, for three months and has already appeared on the red carpet with him.

She is said to have met the creative director through mutual friends and is also believed to be pals with Fleabag creator Phoebe.
Michelle – who is best known for playing Lady Mary Crawley in Downton – was left heartbroken when her fiancé John Dineen passed away from a rare form of cancer in 2015.
Michelle described John as "my friend, my king, my hero, my everything" when she gave the eulogy at his funeral in Cork, Ireland in December 2015.
