Claire Danes for Harper’s Bazaar Russia

Posted on May 10, 2012

Claire serves up some sexyface Blue Steel and we’re not used to seeing her like this.

Claire Danes covers the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar Russia in Prada.

But we love seeing this side of her. She needs to tap into her inner Swinton every now and then. We know she’s got it in her.

Prada Spring 2012 Collection/Model: Ymre Stiekema

Prada Spring 2012 Jewelry Collection [not exact match]

Because let’s face it. These are not exactly easy pieces to pull off. We’d love it if she got more adventurous and edgy with her public appearance styles. She’s stylish already, but more in a socialite kind of way. She should start pushing herself to break out of that.

      Wow….I would have never pegged this woman as Claire Danes!  She’s rocking that Prada outfit!

      • Kristin McNamara

        i know, right? it doesn’t quite look like her. it looks like the actress who plays fleur delacour in the harry potter movies!

    • mmgk

      Wow, she looks amazing, tho I did think it was January Jones at first. 

      • buildmeatower

         I thought January Jones as well. She does look good though.

        • Scarlet39

          Me too!

    • Chaiaiai

      i LOATHE that prada collection.  and claire here looks like ke$ha in the face.  no bueno.

      • Anathema_Device

        Ha! Shoulda read your comment before I posted. I thought Ke$ha, too! Never, ever would have made that comparison before.

      • Paigealicious

         Didn’t Nicki Minaj wear that same outfit on a different cover? But it worked on her because she also had cotton candy as hair?

      • Ryan Williamson

         It’s horrid, the print here looks like clip art.

        • ballerinawithagun

          Yes, clip art! I really hate this whole Prada collection.

      • Vera

        Wowza! She does look like Ke$ha.

    • SpcilK

      FIerce! She is giving it to the photographer like he stole from her.

      • VicD

        Awesome sauce!

    • charlotte

      They photoshopped her into a teen! Other than that, a magazine cover is the only place where 1950s nursery imagery looks fierce.

    • Jessica Pippin

      Not that she’s old. but she looks so much younger on the cover. Very much like her Romeo & Juliet days. Looks great though! 

      • Amelia Logan

        I looked at that photo and it made me think of my so called life.

    • foodycatAlicia

      She looks great. I wouldn’t have recognised her though! I think she’s really growing into her features.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Sorry, but both the clothes, and she, leave me stone cold on this cover.

    • introspective

      does anyone else think this looks like a mug shot from boca raton??

      love you claire. love you to death on homeland. but this, not so much.

      • formerlyAnon

         I think the “mug shot from boca” effect is part of why I like this. I feel like it gives her features interest they often lack (for me).

    • MoHub

      Love reading her name rendered in Cyrillic!

      • Jessica Rowe

        Claire Danes: ROCK HER FACE!

      • Jessica Rowe

        Claire Danes: ROCK HER FACE!

    • Anathema_Device

      She looks like a cleaned up Ke$ha on this cover. Haven’t decided whether that is awesome or horrifying.

      • Kiltdntiltd

         I’m going with horrifying in this instance.  And I usually loves me some Danes.

    • Gabriella M

      Wish the lipstick were a tad darker. That baby pink lipstick doesn’t look right to me. 

    • kimmeister

      What an awesome belt.  Not that it would work with very many ensembles.

    • ShivaDiva

      What a weird combo.  She has her ready-to-kick-ass Sarah Connor face on.

    • Angel H.
    • Mylynka Cardona

      Didn’t Nicki Minaj wear this on another cover… or some other pop starlet/actress starlet?  I know I have seen it on T+L before.

    • granddelusion

      I love these fabric designs. And Danes is channeling some heavy Linda Hamilton here.

    • LuLusLemons

      She looks like Jem confronting The Misfits.

    • kikisayshi

      Love her. Love this.

    • Spicytomato1

      Yes! This is exactly the type of look I always thought she should rock…I feel like her true potential, style-wise, has never been reached. Until now.

    • Dixie Murphy Ross

      She looks ten times better than the model (but I think that’s the whole unbuttoned, rocking a swimsuit thing).

    • ccm800

      Thought Kesha ( refusing the dollar sign) took a bath!!!!!!

    • Sara Munoz

      Claire Danes with beach hair. Wow. She looks good when she loosens up a bit.

    • marilyn

      Very forgettable.

    • formerlyAnon

       She looks good. The clothing falls into the “cute, but ephemeral – one season -maybe – & it falls out of the rotation” category for me, which doesn’t really track with Prada prices down here amongst the peasantry. But, for the rich, why not?

      I like the jewelry, though sweet roses have never been in my wheelhouse.

    • TheOtherChristina

      Some lesbian in 1994 is wondering where her hair went.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      Great Look for her!

    • Dr Skylaser

      I agree–she could be the next iteration of Swinton/Blanchett badass styleosity.  

    • TheOriginalLulu

      It’s a pretty awesome cover. She looks like somebody…I can’t quite put my finger on it.

      • AthenaJ

        David Bowie?

    • MilaXX

      I like the suit on her. The way it’s styled for the cover looks better than the runway version, which looks like pajamas, Not loving the hair/face and I can’t be sure if it a matter of too much photoshop or simply not liking the blue steel face she is giving,

    • Susi R

      That necklace is beautiful!

    • Susan Bullard Mayer

      I dunno – she’s almost making duckface.  

    • victoria rodeno

      Her hair is too poofie. Other than that, she rocks!!!

    • BazoDee

      Didn’t Niki Minaj wear that? 

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Love the entire look.  LOVE that Prada necklace!

    • Dan Alexander

      doesn’t look like her at all! Me thinks she has been photoshop’d beyond recognition!

    • Ana R.

      Is she using a necklace as a belt?? Why is my neck fatter than Claire Danes??

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      Oh my god that necklace. I loved that whole collection so hard. She fierce and fashion-ready here, a good look. 

    • Aurumgirl

      She doesn’t look like herself but I have pyjamas that look exactly like hers. 

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Love the edgier pieces for her, but here it is Spring 2012, and I’m already over Prada’s Spring 2012 collection.

    • girliecue

      She looks like Tonya Harding. In a figure skating costume, too.

    • TigerLaverada

      Something very odd happening anatomically with her hip there, the one with her hand on it. She seems to be missing something, like an ilium, for example.

    • guest2visits

      There’s seems to be a consistancy with the Russian covers; they’re really good!  Claire looks wonderful- love the hair, make-up.
      Clean and polished looks good on her. I thought the suit or the coat required more color; or possibly just the background.

    • frankystein123


    • Ajuna Ariel Fenty


    • Vera

      She’s giving serious face; the hair, not so much.

    • sleah_in_norcal

      OMG i must have that necklace, the one in the photo alone, i am reaching through my monitor to snatch it up…if only.  those clear aqua crystals with the coral carved roses…i die.
      and claire, my lovely young juliet, you are werqing that rather unworkable coat like gangbusters.  the model looks like a barn door on shish kebab skewers.. 

    • Veronika Kaufmann

       great cover. Why are the covers of other Vogues always better than the innocuous American Vogue covers?

    • Lina_bee

      ! This is the first thing I’ve liked her in in like…a decade? You’re totally onto something wrt her working the inner SWINTON. She isn’t a classic beauty, but she’s striking as hell and playing to that should be her strength.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      I think cartoon cars crashing on a pink coat and swim suit are just dumb.  Sorry.

    • Marcie Dreyfuss

      Claire Danes and Andrew Garfield would make some amazing babies together.

    • TheVeryLivingEND

      Yes, Claire!
