Claire Danes In Marc Jacobs – 2015 SAG Awards

ClaireDanesInMarcJacobs2015SAGAwards

Claire Danes graced the red carpet at Sunday’s (January 25) 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, hosted at the L.A. Shrine Auditorium.

The ‘Homeland’ nominee wore a khaki green gown by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015. I’m a big lover of the cool and contemporary colour.

The gown had several beautifully crafted details, but one too many for my eye. The twisted halter, the keyhole cutout, the waist-cinching belt, and the graphic beading down the entire side of the gown. Each design element so lovely, but too much all together.

Claire amped up the glamour of a potentially causal colour with warm gold earrings and bangles, which was smart. I also love that she matched her eyeline colour to the dress–a dark green for extra edge.

Does this gown have too many details to look at? Or, are you loving the look?

Claire Danes In Valentino – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Claire Danes In Valentino - 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Claire Danes attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

Never one to shy away from a sartorial challenge, the Homeland star chose a textured Valentino gown from the fashion house’s Spring 2015 collection.

As a fan of Claire and Valentino, this is a look that I genuinely want to like. Unfortunately, this dress is more runway appropriate than red carpet ready. Though Claire is one of the few actress who can pull off such an intricate gown, a lot of the detail is lost on camera. Translation? As beautiful as it is, this Valentino dress looks more like a frock inspired by Little House on the Prairie.

And while we’re nitpicking, those blue Lorraine Schwartz earrings look awfully similar to the red Lorraine Schwartz earrings Claire sported at the 2014 Emmys. Nevertheless, the earrings perfectly accessorized the printed gown; however nixing the single bracelet would’ve streamlined this overall look.

Claire Danes In Chloe – ‘Homeland’ Season 4 Screening

Claire Danes In Chloe - 'Homeland' Season 4 Screening

Claire Danes made an appearance in support of her hit series, ‘Homeland,’ attending the Season 4 private reception and screening on Thursday (September 4) in New York City.

The actress wore a quietly chic Chloe black dress.

Although the frock was a familiar, safe bet for Claire, she added some excitement via the flash of ruby-red Kurt Geiger ‘Britton’ pumps that matched her matte red lip.

It was just the pop of bold colour that this look so desperately needed. Otherwise, this LBD would have had me yawning in no time.

Was it enough to enliven the dress?

Claire Danes In Givenchy – 2014 Emmy Awards

ClaireDanesInGivenchy2014EmmyAwards

Claire Danes continued a very strong ‘lady in red’ trend tonight  red carpet 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Homeland’ star wore a red lace Givenchy gown from the Fall 2014 collection with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

This is an amazing gown, from the intricate built-in neck piece to the diamond-shaped cut-outs at the waist, but I have to say I like the black we see on the runway better than the red–simply more dramatic.

But Claire looks lovely and her loose updo, smokey eyes and matte red lip are the perfect complement for the gown.

Claire Danes In Stella McCartney – Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree

Claire Danes In Stella McCartney - Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree

Claire Danes attended the Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree held at the Sunset Tower on Sunday (August 24) in West Hollywood, California.

Perhaps known as the actress who “plays-it-safe”, Claire stepped way out of her comfort-zone donning a Stella McCartney Resort 2015 patchwork blue, white and red dress featuring an embroidered bodice with cut-out detailing and asymmetrical hemline styled with a blue python Tyler Alexandra ‘Edwin’ clutch, Irene Neuwirth jewelry and silver Kurt Geiger ‘Belgravia’ sandals.

Did you have this look in mind for Claire?

Me neither, which probably makes this look all the more special.

She dared to be different and it paid off me. What say you?
