Claire Danes' Hideous Dress Makes Us Wonder What She Was Thinking

claire danesClaire Danes changed my life forever when she played Angela Chase on My So Called Life. Like, hello, that show was amazing, and gone too soon. That's why I feel horrible saying anything bad about my girl Claire. Without her on-point portrayal of a young teen girl growing up in the normal suburbs, I wouldn't have learned to use, like, like, in like, a dramatic way, nor learned just how hot a guy who leans on stuff can be. While I could go on and on about the, like, perfection that was that 1994 hour-long drama, I'll focus on the present. It pains me to say it, but Claire wore a hideous dress to the premiere of HBO's new hit series, Girls.

There. I, like, said it.


Her dress, by Preen, is, frankly, terrible. WTF. The mid-calf length looks good on no one, let alone a mixture of geometric print on silk, black velvet, long sleeves, and a splash of neon green.

Claire looked absolutely stunning at the Vanity Fair Oscar after party in her Valentino gown, so we know that she knows how to pull herself together, but this look is just a disaster. Her hair and makeup look pretty, but everything else is just vom.

She's been in the spotlight for almost 20 years now, so you'd think she'd know better than to wear something like this on the red carpet, but I guess everyone, including Claire, needs a fashion intervention every now and again.

But still. I, like, love her.

What do you think of Claire's Preen dress?
