The Time 100 Gala, held to celebrate the magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in the world, took over New York’s Lincoln Center last night! It was quite the star-packed affair, with celebrities including Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel (both in Tom Ford), Claire Danes (in Lanvin), Girls creator Lena Dunham (in Saint Laurent), Michael Kors, and Olivia Munn (in a dress by the designer) mixing and mingling at the event. The festivities included performances by Miguel and Christina Aguilera, as well as a rousing speech by Vice President Joe Biden who asserted to the audience, “This list is unified by a simple belief that it’s all about basically not being told it can’t be done.” Click the photo to see more.
Claire Danes turns 34 today, and the Emmy-winning star of Showtime’s hit show Homeland (don’t pretend like you aren’t obsessed!) has spent more than half of those years in the public eye. She first hit the scene in a major way in 1994—at 15 years old—as Angela Chase in the cult-classic My So-Called Life, and just two years later she starred as one half of literature’s most famous star-crossed duo in Baz Luhrmann’s glittery, punk-driven modern re-make of Romeo + Juliet. Even as a young woman, she showed a mature approach to life. “Physical appearance is a huge part of our existence,” Danes told InStyle for our July 1999 issue. “You can’t totally deny or ignore it, but you can’t turn it into a measure of your self-worth.” Such wise words. Happy birthday, Claire!
See how Claire has transformed!
The stars stepped out in bulk to celebrate their stylists at THR‘s Top Stylist Luncheon last week! And while these dressing mavens see their famous clients ’round the clock, we were charmed to discover that even Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Claire Danes, gets starstruck when she sees one of her actresses in the perfect look. Her top 2013 looks so far: Danes at the Golden Globes in Versace Couture. “It was made and we were only able to try it on the night before! It was such a triumphant moment to have it all work out.” She also loved Saldana, who stood by her stylist’s side throughout the event, in that ruffled Alexis Mabille dress for this year’s Oscars. And finally, she told us that she adored Stone’s all-red Lanvin look for the Gangster Squad premiere. “It was one of those moments where the more you started adding, the better it got,” she said, referencing the addition of crimson heels and a ruby necklace. “It was a glamorous ’80s look, but because she’s modern and fresh and youthful, she pulled it off.” And we agreed—all of these ensembles made their way into our Look of the Day roundup!
Check out more of the looks we’ve loved in our Look of the Day lookbook.
