Claire Danes may not excite many of you on the red carpet, but she always looks sophisticated and very elegant.

This was very much the case when she stepped onto the red carpet at the 2010 Whitney Gala And Studio Party at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City last night.

Her Lanvin Resort 2011 haltered black dress had an interesting jeweled chain-link neckline.

I’m really glad she added the studded black leather belt and silver clutch to this look otherwise I may not have liked it as much.

Her blonde hair teased into a simple updo, whilst her make-up was natural and flawless.

As always, we have a perfectly nice red carpet look from Claire.
