Claire Danes In Valentino – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

It was hard to miss Claire Danes at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night in West Hollywood.

It’s no surprise that she chose Valentino – one of the actress’ favourite designers – for the biggest night in Hollywood, but this bright pink colour is not something we’d expect from the actress who tends to favour minimalist looks.

Her Valentino Pre-Fall 2012 gown features sheer, polka-dotted overlay exploding into a tiered, riffled skirt.

This stand-out gown comes dangerously close to looking a bit Barbie princess, but I think the almost-neon pink is a brilliant choice and looks stunning on Claire.

Her styling is flawless, with a slightly messy hairstyle and light pink makeup.

The look is finished with Tiffany & Co. earrings and a Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet.

Claire Danes In J. Mendel – 2012 Golden Globes

Claire Danes looked gorgeous as she took to the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards this evening as a nominated actress in the Best Performing Actress in a Dramatic Television Series for her role in ‘Homeland.’

She wore a J. Mendel Couture gown, which is a longer version of similar dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

The ecru and black, draped front gown has embroidered cap sleeves and an open back was style with a chic updo.

Hot red lips and silver jewels completed her look.

Claire Danes In Donna Karan – 2012 AFI Awards

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.

Claire Danes In Reed Krakoff – The View

Claire Danes was glowing as she made a guest appearance on ‘The View’ on Friday.

The blonde actress wore a Reed Krakoff Resort 2012 dress. This is her second look from this collection.

I love how the embellished details on the shoulders of her gorgeous green tank dress shimmer under the studio lights.

The dress with the pleated skirt was presented as a drop-waist dress, but Claire has tightened it around the waist, which has also made it shorter to reveal more of her shapely legs.

Nude peep-toes completed her look.

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.

Claire Danes In Valentino – New York Women In Film & Television 31st Annual Muse Awards

Claire Danes was honoured for her work at the 31st Annual New York Women in Film & Television Muse Awards in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The actress wore a black and white Valentino Resort 2012 dress, with red collar details and coral-pink pleats.

Claire opted to keep the blouse of her dress simple, by selection a sleeveless version without the keyhole detail as seen in the Valentino look book.

As a result, the look loses a bit of its romanticism with such a structured tank, making the petite actress even look a bit boxy.

Black peep-toes complete the look.
