Stepping off the set of her hit PBS series "Downton Abbey," Michelle Dockery graces the cover of Red magazine's October 2013 issue.

The 31-year-old British beauty looked absolutely gorgeous in all-red ensemble for the Max Abadian-shot front page as she opened up about meeting Gwyneth Paltrow at the Met Ball and reveals how she's reacting to her new level of stardom.

On her first impression of Gwyneth:
"I wanted her in 'Sliding Doors' what I was 16 and cut off my hair to be like her, so for her to come over and talk to me is just... I still feel on the outside of it all in that world. I'll never get used to it."

On her fame:
"Mom's favorite saying is, 'Now don't get your hopes up' which sounds like a negative thing to say but it has helped me a lot. She taught us to enjoy every day. On Downton, we always get asked, 'What's next Hollywood?' But I'min this amazing show and really enjoying it. Why should I think beyond that? Right now, this is enough."

On her parent's confidence boost:
"Our parents are both quite shy. Mom only sent us to dance classes because she wanted us to have more confidence than she did. And we just lapped it up."
