Claire Danes In Oscar de la Renta – 2014 Met Gala

Claire-Danes-In-Oscar-de-la-Renta-2014-Met-Gala

Claire Danes looked lovely as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The actress wore a color-blocked satin and velvet gown from Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2014 collection.

I absolutely love the unexpected color combination going on here, and the juxtaposition of the two fabrics is divine.

Also a big win for me? How completely understated the whole thing is.

While I do wish that Claire had opted for the full high/low hemline effect that was shown on the runway, the star looks stunning.

A loose updo and earrings serve as the only accents here, which is a great move–understated elegance all the way.

    I am missing some pizazz. Some sparkle. Something.

    Not really liking this

    Something with the proportion (body/dress) bothers me. The runway look works since one can see some leg and shoes. On Claire, it looks like too ‘blockish’.

    Agree.. Looks flat and nothing screams “couture” to me. Just a pretty prom dress. The high/low hemline would have helped a bit.

    Gosh, I loved this look on the runway and it just falls so flat on her. She doesn’t have the curves to pull it off, her build looks better in chic modern sheaths IMO.

      Yep, she has no chest which is needed for this gown…bad.

    This gown is perfect for the event, I totally love it on the runway. Sadly Cate can’t pull it off. It doesn’t translate well on her at all.

      Sadly, I agree.

    It reminds me of the Alexis Mabille dress Zoe Kravitz wore to the 2010 Oscars.

    I love Claire, but this dress is missing the high low hem. For me it ruins so much the look had going for it.

    The shiny pink satin skirt is making me shudder. Not working.

    I disagree again with all the comments here. I think Claire looks her best yet. She also looks estatic to be wearing such a beautiful dress.
