Claire Danes made her first red carpet appearance of 2012 at the AFI Awards in LA this afternoon.

The actress who tends to favour clean lines and lady-like silhouettes didn’t stray too far from her comfort zone wearing a white Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2012 dress with a plunging neckline and flared skirt.

Her pristine white dress was accessorized with a large navy belt, which matched her blue suede shoes and Pomellato ‘Nudo’ London blue topaz earrings.

The ‘Homeland’ actress certainly looks prim, proper and event appropriate. Everything we’ve come to expect from her.

Sleek hair and bronzed makeup complete the look.
