Claire Danes In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Met Gala

clairedanes

Claire Danes glittered at the 2013 Met Gala in New York, celebrating The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibit.

From a distance, her Oscar de la Renta black tulle gown, paired with a clutch and shoes from the designer, definitely echoed more ‘couture’ rather than chaotic inspiration.

But, get closer and you’ll see the gunmetal chain-mail embroidery that subtly belies a certain rebellious edge.

That said, this ensemble needed a different, punk-y hairstyle. Some teased and spiked strands to go with Claire’s smoked-out eyes and black-lacquered nails could have worked magic.

    People say you start getting positively surprised when you stop expect much. It’s the case here. I had washed my hands when it comes to Claire and fashion, but she has finally pleased me.
    I think she looks great.

    Laid to heavy on the undereye, it is too distracting

    i dont know about this…different hairstye would have taken this look into almost perfect territory because the rest of her look is almost in sync with the theme.

    I agree about the hair. But she looks great though. The dress is gorgeous.

    Add a spiked belt to it, put her hair in a sleek ponytail, add a red lip and this would be in my top 5. There is so much potential here and the dress is lovely, but I don’t think she pushed the envelope.

    There’s no way she even tried.
