Downton Abbey Incites Vintage Clothing ManiaS

If you covet Lady Mary's jet bead necklaces or the Dowager Countess's jaunty chapeaux, you're not alone: A report claims that cigarette holders, feathered hats and fascinators are in demand, thanks to Downton Abbey. According to data gathered by Alibaba.com, vintage clothing is hot right now, and:

The site recorded a year-over-year increase of 273 percent for April in searches for vintage frocks, a 136 percent rise in elbow-length gloves searches and a 190 percent uptick in searches for sequin headbands.

No word on whether Lady Sibyl's jaw-dropping genie pants are soon to be all the rage. (Gasp!)
