Beauty Flashback: This Week’s Retro Beauty Icon Is A '90s Claire Danes

05 April 2013 by

Long before we lusted after Claire Danes’ glossy blonde locks in Homeland we loved her best for her role as Juliet to Leonardo’s Romeo, racing home to put the soundtrack on repeat (er, did we just confess to that?).  And who can forget how Clarie burst onto our TV sets in her role as Angela in My So Called Life?  With a list of the hottest leading men on the planet to her name, Jared Leto, Zac Efron, Leonardo Dicaprio and of course her baby daddy, Hugh Darcy. Some girls get all the luck, eh? Here are Claire's retro beauty moments that we’re obsessing over this week...

1) 90s Teen Dream

She burst onto our screens in the mid nineties as Angela Chase in My So Called Life. With her awkward teenage angst and her will they/won’t they relationship with Jordan Catalano (Leto) it was compelling stuff. Take inspiration from her grungy ‘rich mahogany’ home hair dye, pale skin and burgundy lips.


2) Berry stained lips

No stranger to the red carpet, Claire’s notched up two Emmy awards and four Golden Globes for her roles. She plays up her pout to perfection with a slick of delicious berry lipstick and a glowing complexion. We think she deserves a beauty Oscar.


3) Bob perfection

There is nothing more sophisticated than a sleek bob. We love Claire’s texture and disconnected layers. Could this be our spring make over? Yes please.
