Eeek, our eyes! There was a whole lotta print clashing going on at last night's premiere of 'Girls' in New York last night. When Claire Danes opted for a funky Preen frock and Chloe Sevigny donned a wonderfully wacky number by Opening Ceremony, little did the actresses know that they'd clash not only with each other but with the garishly swirly blue backing boards. It's created a pattern-tastic spectacle that are peepers are struggling to take in before our morning coffee. So let's take the ladies' looks one by one, shall we?
Claire Danes in Preen
Ms Danes really is the girl of the moment, no? As well as being utterly addicted to her sliiightly crazy character in 'Homeland', Grazia Daily can't get enough of the magazine covers she's nailed this month, from going all fashioney in ASOS to getting glam for Vanity Fair. And now Claire's really sealed the girl crush deal by turning to Brit designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of Preen for her latest red carpet look — and isn't it a treat to see her wearing something less safe-and-sweet and more kooky-cool?
This colour-blocking shift dress comes from the brand's Autumn Winter 2012 collection — remember the one that was inspired by Beatrix Potter? — which saw a mesmirising collaging of fabrics on patchwork frocks, with sparkling embellishments overlapping feminine florals. Yes, the long sleeves, knee-length hemline and classic black peep-toe heels temper Claire's look, but it's certainly a step in the right direction.
Chloe Sevigny in Opening Ceremony
Of course, La Sev is known for thinking outside the sartorial box, frequently stepping out in hipster apparel that gets us gawping — and even creating her own pieces for a collaborative line with Opening Ceremony. So it's no surprise to see her back in another OP design and tackling such a busy and well, frankly cuckoo print that goes right up to her chin. Yep, forget subtle and sombre, this is one New Yorker who always gets those eyebrows raising. And when you have such a killer pair of tanned pins, why not make the most of them in a thigh-grazer? Admittedly, it's taking us a while to get used to Chloe's new shaggy blonde 'do, but it certainly works with her punky aesthetic.
The matchy-matchy blonde starlets were out to support HBO's new show that charts the struggles of a group of friends finding their feet in New York city (hmm, sound familiar?). But what of the fash-off? It's time to decide, folks: who do you crown the 'Girls' premiere printcess? Let us know below...
