Claire Danes In Vivienne Westwood – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Claire Danes seemed to take her invitation to the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday evening, to heart when it came to picking out a dress.

The star of ‘Homeland’, which President Barack Obama has previously admitted is his favourite television show, wore a white Vivienne Westwood satin dress with an asymmetrical halter neckline.

Known for her unfailing devotion to classic tailored silhouettes, this is quite a departure for Claire – but in the wrong direction, unfortunately.

Paired with bright red lipstick, her white satin halter bears an unfortunate resemblance to Marilyn Monroe.

Perhaps if she had taken the time to style her hair, this look would have seemed at least a bit more pulled together overall.

Claire Danes In Lanvin – Time 100 Gala

Yesterday we were talking about how Claire Danes is the original déjà vu girl, so she gave us a look with a bit more bite and attitude at the Time 100 which honours the “100 Most Influential People in the World” which was held at Jazz at the Lincoln Center in New York City last night.

The ‘Homeland’ actress wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her terracotta crinkled and sleeveless shift dress was teamed with a large statement necklace.

The rest of her accessories included Forevermark diamond studs and Lanvin ‘Opanca’ platform sandals with metallic-gold criss-cross straps.

What I find most shocking about this look is her voluminous updo. Claire can step out of her comfort zone dress-wise from time to time, but the hair usually stays the same.

I love that she went left, when we all expected her to go right.

24.04.12 Premiere

Claire Danes In Narciso Rodriguez – ‘Hysteria’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Claire Danes attended the ‘Hysteria’ premiere during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival yesterday evening.

The ‘Homeland’ actress wore a Narciso Rodriguez dress.

Her eye-popping fuchsia dress with flattering black accents was teamed with black pumps.

It’s great that Claire continues to embrace bold colours.

Whilst I really like this dress, I do feel like I’ve seen her channel this look a few times before.

Does anyone else feel a sense of déjà vu when looking at Claire in this look?

Claire Danes In Preen – ‘Girls’ New York Premiere

Many of you have Claire Danes’ red carpet style down as safe and dare I say boring, but she spiced things up on the red carpet last night at the HBO premiere for ‘Girls’ in New York City last night.

The actress is the first to wear a look from the Preen Fall 2012 collection.

Her long-sleeve dress has a lot going on for the usually reserved star.

The patchwork dress, with a black and gold square-print, black velvet and green asymmetrical panels plus pleating at the waist with a self-tie belt, was teamed with black peep-toes and a black clutch.

I think she carries the look off well. It’s good to see her daring to wear such a bold look.

Claire’s hair and makeup were kept simple and neutral.

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.
