Many a day has been spent here at Grazia HQ squabbling over who loves Claire Danes more. 'I've loved her ever since she played Juliet!' one obsessor cried, only to be shot down by another who squealed, 'I'VE loved her ever since she played Angela Chase!' Needless to say, The Danes can do no wrong in our eyes. So it was hardly surprising that our verdict on the marvellous blonde bouffant she sported last night was a unified AMAZE!
The 'Homeland' actress was partying with the likes of Tilda Swinton, Tyra Banks and a surprisingly ladylike Rihanna at Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala in New York after being named as one of the 'people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world'. Quite the accolade, non?
So yes, The Danes is highly entertaining, undeniably inspiring and we are LOVING her ruby red patent leather sheath dress from Lanvin's 2012 Pre-Collection but! We cannot stop gawping at that huuuuge quiff. Jedward, eat yer heart out! It's a beauty look that we'd more likely see on trendy types like Chloe Sevigny or Gwen Stefani so we're all the more impressed to see the typically low-key actress getting so fashion-forward.
Jeremy Scott and DSquared get high
In fact, it seems that our Claire is taking baby steps in a new and sartorially sassy direction. It wasn't long ago that we saw her rocking very un-Carrie-Mathison-esque tropical prints for ASOS magazine and earlier this month, she picked a funky Preen frock for the premiere of 'Girls'. Plus, we saw such high hair backstage at the Jeremy Scott and DSquared shows, proving that our girl isn't afraid of tackling the hottest trend.
But what do YOU make of Ms Danes' edgy beauty look? Let us know if you rate or hate it...
