Claire Danes wore Giambattista Valli at the Golden Globes: sad doll or cute?

I was so surprised when Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy announced they were expecting their third child earlier this week! They already have two sons, Cyrus and Rowan, and I thought they were done having babies. But no, Claire is knocked up again! Congrats to her. Claire turned up at the Golden Globes last night wearing a pretty horrid dress. I’m sure chose it to hide her bump a little, but jeez, it was so bad. This is Giambattista Valli. Usually, Valli designs are heavy on flouncy skirts and architectural looks. This just feels like an off-day, design-wise.

Quinta Brunson wore Christian Siriano – Quinta has a commitment to this style, the strapless mermaid design. It flatters her figure, and she’s quite short (which limits the kinds of dresses she’s offered), but I would love to see her play around with some different silhouettes at some point. Anyway, this was fine. I’m sure it was a custom job from Siriano and Quinta seemed to love it.

Sheryl Lee Ralph looked amazing in a custom Aliette. She is having so much fun!!

    I love Claire Danes but no, this dress looks like my Grandmas toilet paper roll cozy…

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Clare Danes stole my grandmother’s chenille bed spread.

  3. Danbury says:

    Why does Clare Danes always look like she’s auditioning for the role of a serial killer?

    • sparrow says:

      Ha ha. I know. I think it’s her eyes. Also, she looks gaunt. Surprisingly so. I didn’t know who it was from the top photos.

    The ladies from Abbot Elementary look outrageously hot in that group photo

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I think Sheryl’s is my favorite of this group.
    Yay for all the Abbot wins!

    I really dislike Claire’s dress.

    • YOKOOHNO says:

      Seconding your yay! Abbott Elementary is such a great show, so deserving of recognition – and the women all look amazing and gorgeous here.

  6. Stacey Dresden says:

    Sheryl looks incredible. I love that royal purple

  7. Genevieve says:

    I love Claire Danes’s dress. I think it’s cute and suits her vibe.

    • TeamMeg says:

      I like Claire’s dress better with the jacket on top – the textures and colors complement each other. The pink bow is a no for me. I think it ruins the neckline and distracts from the silver straps. “Too much going on,” as my 80-year old BFF would say. Jacket hides the straps so the lines flow better.

      • Frippery says:

        I like the dress but not the bow or the feathery bottom. The actual dress is cute. But, it’s not my dress, it’s hers. I think Claire looks lovely and I hope she felt lovely in it.

    Claire’s dress is awful! There are much better preggo looks, even Kaleys’ lilac nightgown is better than this mess.

  9. Twin Falls says:

    Claire’s hair looks great but I think her eye makeup is too heavy. Congratulations on the new baby.

    • Josephine says:

      I had no idea who she was and I think it was that harsh make-up. She’s had that same hairstyle for some time. I wonder if a change would suit her as she ages. Would love to see her try a pixie. With her strong features it might be fun.

  10. NEENA ZEE says:

    I wish all the coverage of Quinta winning didn’t include her hoiking up her dress and checking on her girls. The gown didn’t fit her properly. She deserves better.

    • Case says:

      I kept thinking, I wish she’d leave it alone on camera! It sucks that it kept slipping on her. That’s why I’m not a fan of strapless dresses, they’re a mess to deal with, especially in this type of situation where people are likely stepping on her dress, pulling it down further.

  11. mellie says:

    Yay for Abbot Elementary – I love that show so much! And all the ladies looked great.

  12. Case says:

    LOVE Cheryl’s dress! Claire looked…really bad.

  13. Eowyn says:

    Sheryl Lee Ralph is gorgeous and I loved her commentary on telling her teenage self to love her African features and the Kardashians…

  14. Solidgold says:

    Every dress in this post is a fail especially Claire’s. She looks like she never got it tailored.

  15. J says:

    I still can’t forgive Claire Danes for what she did to Mary Louise Parker

    And this bedspread doesn’t fit right

    She’s pretty tho and a good actress

  16. Ladiabla says:

    The earrings are pretty. She looks a little hard here, despite granny’s bedspread dress.

  17. HeyKay says:

    I used to have a chenille bedspread that looks very much like what Clare is wearing.
    Horrible, ugly excuse for a red carpet gown. I hope they paid her to wear it.

  18. Serena says:

    Not only was Claire Danes dress giving sad doll vibes but her make up was ..not good. Instead of brightening up her deep eyes, they just made them look more ‘sunken in’ if that makes sense.
    Overall, her complexion also suffered from the choice of colors and such and yeah, this was really not a good look for her.
