Style Crush #14 : Claire Danes

 Claire Danes hasn't really been on my style radar until recently. My first thought of Claire Danes is as Juliet in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo Dicaprio. I have seen that film at least ten times and expect to see it plenty more as an English teacher! She was very young back then and looks totally different now. Another film I've seen (and loved) her in was Stardust. She's a fully fledged blonde in Stardust and looks like a mix between Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon.

The reason Claire Danes is my most recent style crush is because I saw her in the latest tv series Homeland. I haven't actually had time to watch the whole series but the bit I did see was pretty intriguing. I'm considering a Homeland marathon when I have the time! Anyway, I'd also seen a picture floating around of her in a red/pink Valentino dress and decided that I should have a look into other things she has worn. I liked what I saw so thought I'd share. Here are some favourites:

The Valentino dress. Just on the right side of Barbie!
Classy but still a little quirky
Love the red lace and simple black shoes
Another cute combition. I think she looks a bit Tess Daly here. Anyone agree?

Rocking the red lipstick
Dresses below: Not sure I'd personally wear the one on the left but I think it looks amazing on her! The black dress with lace sleeves on the right is beautiful. The cropped lace sleeves with flower details on look really delicate and pretty.

I have fallen in love with this dress. The shade of pink matches her blusher too. Love love love.

Dresses below: I wish I owned all of these. I actually wore a very similar dress to the dark blue one to my graduation ball. It was from and cost me £70 which is the most I've ever spent on a piece of clothing. Probably not that much in comparison to others but it's loads for me! Unfortunately someone spilt a drink down it and I've never been able to get it out.  Anyyyyway, the orange dress is cute and summery but fitted enough to be an evening dress too. The glittery dress seems to be the obligatory celebrity dress but nevertheless it looks stunning on Claire Danes.

 Massive wardrobe envy right now. 

In other news, I downloaded the Ebay app for my phone which was clearly a dangerous idea. I bid away and ignore the fact that I will actually have to pay for the items at the end of it. So far I've bought too dresses and I'm bidding on two more at the moment. Think I might have to put some clothes of mine on there soon because I keep seeing similar things making a fair amount of money! I also discovered instagram for androids so I've been uploading snaps on there. Mostly food! If you want to follow me on any of my various accounts then the links are below:
