Claire Danes in hot pink Narciso Rodriguez: gorgeous or blah?

Claire Danes

Claire Danes was on hand at the Tribeca Film Festival for last night premiere of Hysteria, which stars her husband Hugh Dancy as Mortimer Granville, the doctor who invented the modern electromechanical vibrator in 1880 (or so). Maggie Gyllenhaal, who stars in the film, was not present because, presumably, she’s getting some much needed rest while heavily pregnant with her second child. So we’ll have to get our female fashion fix with Claire, who wore a hot pink and black shift-type Narciso Rodriguez dress, which was slightly daring in its color choice but quite strange in the boob area. The top part of the dress squishes Claire’s girls and makes her look really flat, which she totally isn’t. I think this look is supposed to be “edgy,” but Claire pulled off that vibe a lot better in last year’s metallic blue Oscar de la Renta gown. She still looks quote lovely though even if her eye makeup is a bit too severe.

Hugh Dancy was there too, of course! He and Claire walked the red carpet separately — I guess because it’s his film, and Claire’s pink dress would’ve distracted from the red carpet’s rightful focus. Maybe. All I know is that Hugh looks like a British dreamboat.

Christy Turlington and Edward Burns were in attendance as well and dressed down for the event. Ed looks like he’s totally over this and would rather be a few steps away in his own Tribeca apartment. Can’t say I blame him.

    Both the pink and white dresses fit awkwardly.

    O-m-g I forgot that Ed Burns existed and I lurv him. He’s so good looking and he still looks so good. Where’s he been? I am mad for Sarah Silverman’s dress. Can someone say whose it is?

    Looovvee claire’s Dress, such a fun piece

    Ed Burns always looks d-ckish to me

    Claire is very pretty, but I don’t think that dress is flattering to her bust. Hugh is hot. Christy apparently doesn’t age and I wish I could hang out with her. Sarah’s dress is unfortunate and she’s pretty and could look much better.

  5. Veruca says:

    “but she looks beautiful in this white dress with a satin cowl neck top”…

    No. Just no. Sarah Silverman is not beautiful (or funny, but that’s a different rant). This dress may look nice on her, but let’s not go overboard.

    You’ll be trying to tell me Emma Roberts is “gorgeous” next…

      so, i must be blind…where is sarah silverman in this post???
      claire danes – LOVE HER – she is flat chested, though…very much so…which isn’t a bad thing at all! sometimes her outfits are ill-fitting i think because she’s so tiny on top and thicker in the hips – though stick thin! just a disparity in proportion which makes it difficult to find the right fit…GOD, her husband is dreamy! his eyes are like angelic pools…

        I removed the Silverman photos because Kaiser already covered them yesterday in the Michelle Williams post. Sorry for the confusion. 😉

    • Anmelt says:

      She has long torso and relatively short legs. She is very attractive though, has that litle extra something while beng quite unconventional looking. Probably helps that it seems that she has never had any filler or plumpers or whatever else one can do

    whats that on her leg? looks like a severe burn

  7. Jackson says:

    I’m not sure I’d call it ‘gorgeous’ but it’s nice. A little bright for my tastes but it’s still good.

  8. mia girl says:

    I think she looks lovely. I think Hugh is even lovelier. :).

  9. Kaye says:

    Claire Danes used to be almost completely board-flat. I think I mused in another comment last week that perhaps she had had implants, but she’s still not very busty.

  10. Irina says:

    she reminds me a little bit of Julie Bowen from Modern Family in these pictures

  11. maggiegrace says:

    Claire Danes is VERY flat-chested. If that’s changed, it’s surgery.

  12. Agnes says:

    i like the dress, but a color that’s a bit more mute would be lovelier, i think.

  13. sup says:

    i don’t think it’s that beautiful but it’s clever. the colour is good on her and it’s smart yet makes her look younger. a few years ago she was looking haggard for some reason at the emmy’s. she seems to have reversed the rapid ageing somehow so kudos to her

  14. hi biscuits says:

    I like it a lot, and I think her makeup looks great. I always thought she was pretty flat-chested, so I’m not sure it’s the dress’s fault that her bust looks so small.

  15. Sumodo1 says:

    Beautiful dress and yes, makeup is edgier this season. Well-played, Ms. Danes!

  16. Kim says:

    VERY unflattering. The fit is all wrong esp in the chest area. She has to masculine/buff a body type for this style of dress.

    I wish she would go back to her natural hair color which looks so much better on her. This is an awful shade of blond, with WAy to much red/orange in it, & she doesnt work as a blond at all.

  17. Camille (The original) says:

    I think she looks lovely and her hubby is gorgeous.

  18. original kate says:

    if this were pink and grey i would like it, buti hate pink and black together. looks so tacky and cheap.

  19. Kosmos says:

    Claire has the most beautiful eyes, her best feature. To me, the dress is just okay, but I agree, it draws attention to her smaller chest, but hey, I’m glad that there are women out there who are not getting implants and are okay with the way they look. A big breast does not equal beautiful by any means…Claire is very authentic, attractive and a talented actress.
