I thought Sophia's entire "look" was dumpy and way to old for her. The Downton Abbey hairstyle, especially where the hair is pulled back covering the ears, does nothing for most women unless there is a fantastic tiara on top or a large (real) hat. Unlike most people I like her hair parted in the centre, it's her signature as surely as Victoria's bun is.
