Claire Danes In Valentino – Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum Launch Party

Claire Danes had a very busy night last night, as she also attended Valentino Garavani’s launch party for his Virtual Museum.

Whilst we didn’t love her Valentino Resort 2012, our feelings are very different for this Spring 2012 frock.

The scarlet lace dress was presented in a vibrant blue colour, but the red is more striking, plus it’s a bold choice for Claire who is very much a safe option kinda gal.

What’s also very different is her makeup. I don’t recall her sporting kohl-rimmed eyes before.

I’m glad she totally transformed herself from the earlier appearance.

Simple black accessories don’t detract from this rare sultry look from Claire.

  • I agree about the black accessories. I have a strong dislike for the cliched red/black combo. But I’m glad she finally understands her body’s proportions. Much better recently.

  • Carmen

    I think she would’ve looked amazing in the blue!

  • SashaQueenie

    I like the length of the dress on the model, which falls above the knees. Claire’s version looks dowdy. The proportions is all wrong.

  • Cristina

    Ms. Danes does love a sheath dress. So nice to see her mixing it up with something full and flirty!

  • TeaAtTwo

    A beautiful dress and a great turn by Claire, so glad she chose red.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    So many great looks this week! This dress is gorgeous! I would have preferred accessories and an updo but Claire looks amazing!

  • Rebecca Z

    Love the dress–not loving the eye makeup on her–too heavy

  • dee

    So much better than the other look. She looks great.

  • Linda

    Beautiful! The cut and colour are divine and for her style, basic black accessories are perfect.

  • Jones19

    She looks great, she usually opts for safe colors but I’m glad she’s stepping out of the box.

  • Pati

    Finally!!! I have been so unimpressed with her choices, but this is gorgeous!

  • Mol

    Wow, this is the best (and sexiest) I’ve seen Claire in, like, forever!

  • Gigi

    This dress looks phenomenal on her. So happy to see her looking so stylish. She is such a great actress – I am heavily involved in “Homeland” now.. .. highly recommended, but see if from episode one.

  • Amanda

    Love this dress!

  • maria
