Claire Danes is Kindergarten Sophisticate

Claire Danes is Kindergarten Sophisticate

Claire Danes is featured in the Spring Fashion 2007 issue of New York Magazine with her “kindergarten sophisticate” style. Photographs by Alex Cayley, styling by Harriet Mars Powell. Here are a few excerpts from the 27-year-old actress’s interview:

  • On her own fashion: “I always feel kind of defeated by how often I wear jeans. Plus I have a real weakness for animals on clothing, and hearts and stars. My mom had a nursery school in our loft and a pretty healthy appreciation for kitsch, so I think I appropriated that.”
  • On staying local in NYC: “I’m incredibly provincial. Lucky Strike is across the street from where I live, so it’s my cafeteria. Right now, with the weather, I love bistro food, especially coq au vin. But there’s also Omen, and Blue Ribbon Sushi and Bakery. I love Raoul’s and Lupa. They’re all my spots and they all know me. It’s very Cheers-like. Like any New Yorker, it takes enormous effort for me to leave my neighborhood.”

Claire will be playing a torch singer in the adaptation of Susan Minot’s Evening, directed by Lajos Koltai and co-starring Meryl Streep, Toni Collette, Hugh Dancy, Glenn Close, and Vanessa Redgrave. Evening is set for a 2007 release.

    Oh, [Fug Face Maniston], you must be pretty out of it if you’ve never heard of Claire Danes.

    And since I’m here, her new boyfriend co-star Hugh Dancy is way too good-looking and intelligent and interesting for her. Yeah, I said it. Where are all the Hugh Dancy pictures, Jared?

    Stop hating! Claire looks great!

    Claire Danes racked up major bad karma when she became involved with Billy Crudup. It is hard to look at her and like her. Also, her answers are so haughty. Appropriated my ass!

    “Oh and I loooove to steal 8 mos. pregnant ladies’ boyfriends and I loooove to make out with bisexual men and I loooove being sooooo cool”

    If you people hate her so much why do you waste your time reading about her and making nasty comments? Why don’t you take the time instead to reflect upon yourselves and all the stellar things you’ve done in the past.
    Oh and you’re right, it probably would have been better if BC and MLP stayed together for the baby’s sake, even if their relationship was falling apart.
    You don’t know what happened so who are you to judge?

    I always thought she looks like a female version of Jon Bon Jovi (only not as gorgeous as him obviously!)
