Nobel Peace Prize Concert: Claire Danes In Valentino


Who: Claire Danes

Where: At the 20th annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert held in Oslo

Wearing: A floral macramé Valentino gown from the spring 2014 collection, teamed with simple jewellery and a swept-back updo

Verdict: Claire Danes is usually the one to wear a minimal-yet-elegant looks, so seeing her look so colourful in this statement Valentino gown was a very pleasant surprise.

This dress for me is a slice of art, don’t you think that this floral masterpiece would look amazing as a tapestry on the wall? As a gown it is divine, a statement piece and I love that Claire kept the styling to a minimum adding only drop earrings and a diamond bracelet.

This look gives me hope that the up-coming award season we might be seeing a very different side of Claire.

What are you thoughts on this arty-looking gown?

Golden Globes 2013: Claire Danes Looks Stunning In Atelier Versace

Claire Danes, Versace, Golden GlobesWho: Golden Globe-winning actress Claire Danes

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A custom-made red Atelier Versace gown featuring gathered draping to the hip and a deep v-neckline, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery – diamond baguette straight line earrings and a three-stone diamond and ruby pinky ring

Verdict: First up before we get to the dress, which is fabulous, can we first discuss how incredible Claire Danes looks considering she only gave birth a month ago, a month people, a month – I just can’t believe how good she looks. Seriously how???!!!???

OK, enough of my jealously about her flawless figure and back to the gorgeous gown, which I think is absolute perfection – more so when Claire said in an interview to Ryan Seacrest that she only tried it on for the first time “around 9pm” – that is great craftmanship.

There was a lot of red around last night and this is most certainly one of my favourites – I just love the minimal elegance of the silhouette and the draping detailing.

Golden Globes: Claire Danes In J. Mendel

Who: Claire Danes

Where: At the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black and ecru couture J. Mendel draped front gown with embroidered cap sleeves, and open back detailing, inspired by a shorter pre-fall 2012 look, teamed with platinum earrings with princess cut diamonds from Bulgari’s High Jewellery Collection and a white gold bracelet with diamonds

Verdict: I love al the crystal embellishment detailing on the shoulders and around the waist – it kind of has a warrior-esq vibe to it – but as Claire rightly put it “is all about the back” I totally agree!!!

So who do you think has the best open back Claire or Zooey?

SAG Awards: Claire Danes Gorgeous in Louis Vuitton

Who: Award-winner Claire Danes

Where: At the 17th SAG Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless silk printed Louis Vuitton gown with hand stitched embroidered silk flowers to the bodice adorned with black pearls and teamed with a black belt

Verdict: Wow, simply gorgeous, one of my best dressed of the night. Beautiful pattern, and apparently the flower detailing took over 100 hours to make, and it was so worth it.

I spy a trend another gorgeous dress teamed with a belt, first we have Lea Michele with a skinny belt, but this chunky belt is the perfect contrast to such a floaty dress.

Golden Globes: Claire Danes Adds A Spot Of Neon

Who: Golden Globe Winner Claire Danes

Where: at the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A custom neon pink silk Calvin Klein Collection halter gown, teamed with a gold cuff

Verdict: I love a bit of colour, and I love the minimal chic of Calvin Klein, both of which Claire pulls off with grace. It won’t win any best dressed but I think it looks stunning on her. I could totally see Diane Kruger working this dress as well.

LFW: Burberry Prorsum

The climax of London Fashion Week last year was Burberry Prosum’s return to the city and this season was no different, at 4pm (well 20 mins late), London stopped still. Yep even us folk at work!!


This autumn/winter 2010 womenswear collection seems to be not only about the clothes, but the front row celebrities, the global live-streaming and the 3D first fashion shows to (selected) audiences in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Dubai.

Not as though they needed the extra buzz – the pap-fest which is their front row does enough of that. This season we had Bafta-winning actress Carey Mulligan, Kate Hudson, the Olsen twins, The City’s Olivia Palermo, The Kooks (yep the band), Claire Danes, Jared Leto (it was like a My So Called Life reunion!!), Mia Wasikowska – the star of Alice in Wonderland, and Carolina Herrera. What a turn out!!

Randomly they even had Radio 1 DJ, Greg James, interviewing select stars before the show, The Kooks went fine – but I got the feeling Kate Hudson was thinking who the hell is this lad!!

The show itself was military-themed, with the 53-piece collection described as a “salute to the services”, with the shearling aviator jackets and the trench coats the main attraction.

I love the updated sheepskin-lined flying jackets, with my favourite being the chocolate leather one, classic and elegant but being cropped in at the waist gave it sex appeal. It wasn’t all about the airforce though as there were some peacoats for the Navy boys and one my favourite coats was the navy blue one with zippers at the waist.

Overall this show was a spectacle of outerwear glamour with the sexy styling of thigh-high boots teamed with a warm autumn palette of ruffled, bandage and bodycon dresses in raspberry and gold.

Then there were the handbags – I just couldn’t keep my eye of these bucket or is it basket bags? Either way you could fit a hell of a lot in them and I want one!! First choice being the yellow one – divine!

Also for the first time you can now get your hands on 18 coats and 22 bags as seen in the catwalk show from the Burberry website until 4pm Friday. Amazing!!! Where is the my credit card???

What the whole show here:
