      love this…I want to pet her tho. 😉


      That gorgeous necklace gets lost in the print. A few layered chains would’ve been better. Shoes are meh….Love the dress on her, though.

      Don’t care for the necklace with the dress… or the label on the sleeve. It’s just ok.

      Who ‘shopped the model into a 10 feet tall giant? Her head doesn’t even fit into the picture.
      I don’t really like animal prints because they often look tacky, but the dress looks pretty good on Claire.

        Boy, someone at Lanvin was really proud of that idea for a hemline

    • Meg Galasso

      Would have preferred the statement accessory to be the belt rather than a necklace. A more substantial belt would have helped this look along greatly.

    • VeryClaire

      She looks great. What an inspired way to use animal print without looking tacky. But why is there a label on her sleeve?

    • Sara__B

      I love the flirty hemline, but not the styling. How about a statement belt instead of a statement necklace, different shoes, and no label showing on her right sleeve?

    • zenobar

      Little bit Flintstone-y for my tastes. But it does call to mind the plush bottle top on my mom’s favorite perfume, Tigress, so it gets nostalgia points for that.

    • SugarSnap108

      I love the shape of it, but I’m biased against animal prints. They just … bug me. The necklace is all wrong with the dress, and I have to join the chorus asking, WHY is the label on her wrist?

      • VeryClaire

        I don’t really like animal prints either but this one works. It’s more like it’s inspired by animal prints rather than the usual too-literal look.

        • teensmom99

          I like animal prints but this one is too matronly. She looks lfrom the neck down) like she’s about to play herself in 25 years

        • SugarSnap108

          The print itself isn’t literal, but part of what makes it too animal-y for me is that the material (in the close-up) appears to be fuzzy/furry/fluffy.

    • alyce1213

      Much to my surprise I kind of like it. Not the necklace — all wrong, it’s overkill, obvious, just too much for the large-scale animal print.
      I bet the fabric is gorgeous in person.

    • Tatiana Luján

      Who told her that shade of blonde suited her? Between the hair color and the shiny face, I cannot focus on the clothes.
      The necklace is too much. I wish she had used a real belt instead of the necklace.

    • Trisha26

      Lose the necklace, more substantial and more interesting belt. Better yet, make the necklace into a belt!

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      WTF! And it looks furry in one of the pics. No. This is just wrong. Totally wrong.

    • Anniebet

      Boomerangs usually don’t make good accessories, but it goes with the “unflattering” theme that’s going on there.

      • drdarke

        Oh, dear – I think Carrie’s meds just hit….

        Seriously – she’s used that Thousand Yard Stare more than a few times on HOMELAND to show she’s losing it.

    • MilaXX

      Hate the necklace and she needs a bit more color on the face.

    • Carla_Charlton

      This should have been a “Girl, That’s Not Your Dress” post.

    • Bert Keeter

      LANVIN strikes out AGAIN!

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      I’m sorry, I really HATE animal print.

    • MandyM

      Finally Claire Danes is starting to look slightly more like the angsty teenager I remember. I don’t know where the blonde bombshell came from but she wasn’t nearly as interesting looking as the young Claire Danes. I like this hybrid version though. The dress makes her look dumpy though.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I dunno. To me, it looks like the stylist threw everything but the kitchen sink at the model trying to cover up that dress and I agree with that impulse.

    • crash1212

      Great dress and she looks great in it. I really prefer the model shoes to the plain old black – not crazy about this neckpiece – or any neckpiece for that matter – with this print. Love hair and make-up.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Ew. Frump city.

    • LambeeBaby

      I like the dress but the necklace does not go with it and I think it looks like part of a hockey stick. Her hair is not working with this look.

      • l_c_ann

        If it isn’t a hockey stick, what is it?

        • ceceliadid

          Neck boomerang?

    • Nicole Little

      I didn’t know Claire Danes survived a boomerang hunting accident. Brave of her to go on, Teddy Roosevelt styles, and show up on the red carpet. Very professional.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I thought it was some sort of meat cleaver initially, but you are correct, boomerang! Weird.

    • berkeleygirl

      Not crazy about the dress, but the hair color seems a bit toned down… Like…

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t think I like Lanvin very much and I definitely don’t like this. Hate the necklace too but she does look easy breasy pretty

    • ankali

      Ugly. And awful with her hair color.

    • DesertDweller79

      I kind of like the dress. But, wow, that necklace is totally wrong for it. I couldn’t figure out why she had that chunky piece of something stuck to her dress. I had to scroll to the comments and read them to discover that it was a necklace. Her hair is also wrong for this dress. And the shoes are meh. Would love to see this dress styled differently.

    • Thathoodwink

      Well…..I do love the model’s shoes!

    • theblondette

      Everyone hates this, apparently, but I love it. But I own two leopard print dresses. 😉 However the necklace is too much for this dress.

      • poggi

        I like the dress too, it’s her makeup that seems off to me. I don’t like the pink tones with this.

    • formerlyAnon

      Hate. Emphasizes the lemon tone to her hair. The necklace, what I can see of it, is ugly. Hate the print. Can’t fault the cut, though.

    • AmeliaEve

      Cute dress, but I hate that yellow hair with her peaches and cream skintone.

      • Little_Olive

        And pumpkin eyebrows.

    • carnush

      Hate the print. Hate the shape.

    • gillian holroyd

      Looks better on the model, mostly because it is covered up by that gorgeous swing coat.

    • jennsilentcrow

      nonononono on every level. every single thing in this picture makes me want to say no. Including the shiny forehead.

    • marshmallowjane

      The dress gobbles her up.

    • librarygrrl64

      I don’t like this at all. Done.
