Red Carpet Alert: Claire Danes Wows in Lanvin

The Actress Steps Out in a Lanvin Spring/Summer '11 Pre-Collection Gown

What women want — that’s how Alber Elbaz described his spring/summer ’11 Pre-Collection for Lanvin, and after seeing Claire Danes in this jaw-dropping halter dress, we definitely want it, and fast! The star stood out among the starry guest list at the 2010 Whitney Gala and Studio Party held at the Whitney Museum of American Art last night. Dazzling in a floor-skimming black silk halter gown with a chain-link neckline, the actress put her own finishing touches on the look by brilliantly cinching the waist with a studded belt. It was a sartorial masterpiece, fit for an artistic evening in celebration of the arts.
