Fash Fail - Claire Danes

Unfortunately the always classy Claire Danes makes my Fash Fail list this week. Claire wore a houndstooth Yigal Azrouel dress to the MCC Miscast Gala on Monday in New York City and I was extremely under whelmed.

I’m not a big fan of houndstooth and I feel that it should only be dished out in small doses. I do like that she added black tights to the outfit which helps tone down the dress a bit. Perhaps adding a belt may have broken up the look and made it slightly more stylish.

I do appreciate the zipper detail at the waist but it’s so minute that it almost appears to just be a random addition. What do you think Claire could have done differently to avoid the Fash Fail?

  4. I disagree with you about houndstooth, since I absolutely love it, but I agree wholeheartedly that this doesn't work! Something about the way the pattern is positioned makes her look weird in the hip area. I like the top part and the sleeves...I give it a close, but no cigar.

  5. Houndstooth is really pretty if used well. I think this would have been a great look if she had broken up the pattern with a belt...

  8. This dress does not suit her body type. That wrap around tiny zipper detail has the houndstooth in too many directions.

  9. I agree. The zipper detail is a nice touch but doesn't save this look.

  12. That type of pattern is never going to look on anyone but a sista.

  13. I do like the dress, I just think it needs MANY more layers and different shoes. It looks more like office attire, not red carpet.
