    Wow! It looks like Cait is going to have some REAL competition this season for the “Most Beautiful Woman on the Set” competition! Before there were nothing but frumpy Scottish housewives – now there is a entire collection of Parisian beauties!

    I wonder if they will shift Ms. Balfe from her “bog Irish” (less make-up) look to something more sophisticated. Her recent photos in “Emmy Magazine” demonstrate that using “war paint”, she can be a STUNNINGLY attractive classic beauty 😀

      With curls, this actress would look a lot more like the Claire described in the books than Cait Balfe does. Sermonne is also much prettier than the descriptions of Louise de Rohan.
