Just when we thought we couldn’t love Claire Danes any more, she goes and does an awesome shoot with ASOS that sees her rocking tropical prints, acid wash jeans and slicked-back hair (very un-Carrie Mathison of 'Homeland', right?).

And, she’s not finished. Ms Danes is now sporting Hollywood tousles, diamonds and a bedsheet for Vanity Fair’s latest issue. Doesn't she look fab? And because it's their May 2012 TV special, Claire shares the cover with 'The Good Wife’s' Julianna Marguilies, 'Modern Family’s' Sofia Vergara and our very own 'Downton Abbey' Brit, Michelle Dockery (phewf!) - all shot by photographer Norman Jean Roy.

Inside the issue, there's more gorgeous stars from (deep breath) ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Revenge’ (which is coming to the UK very soon. Watch this space), ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, ‘Two and a Half Men’, ‘Breaking Bad’, ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Shameless.’ TV has never been so glam.

In celebration of this latest cover, we’ve spent the morning looking back at the lovely Claire’s Vanity Fair covers over the years. Who remembers the April 1997 Hollywood issue which saw Claire Danes share the cover with an elfin-haired Cameron Diaz and a redhead Kate Winslet? But it wasn’t until February 1998 when the 18-year-old starlet was titled ‘Hollywood’s teen Queen’ - the coverline read ‘Great Danes,’ no less. We can’t look at that cover without wanting to re-watch all of ‘My So Called Life’ again, can you?

Claire didn't grace the cover of VF again until the March 2005 Hollywood issue, which saw her looking more grown-up in an emerald green strapless dress alongside the likes of Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth and Kate Winslet (again). But we have a feeling this latest VF appearance won’t be the last cover she'll do this season... As ever, we'll keep you posted.
