Claire Danes for Harper’s Bazaar Russia

May 10, 2012

Claire Danes looks (dare we say) fierce in Prada on Russian Harper’s Bazaar June 2012 cover

The shoot: Harper’s Bazaar Russia June 2012 cover

The model: Homeland star Claire Danes

The garb: Doodled vintage cars printed Prada swimsuit, matching jacket and spring 2012 jewelry as a belt

The photographer: TBD

The final word: What we have here is another fine example of how styling a runway look for a mag cover can be a bigillian times better than its runway moment (runway pic and jewelry close-up below).

Comparing apples to apples, Claire Danes rocks the hair out of the park on this one and leaves that limp, deep-part wavy situation to the dusty lookbook for spring. With ableached-out finish on the image suiting the neutral makeup and spiked burgundy nails, those piercing eyes mean business.

And with the anything-print trend ubiquitous up and down the fashion label latter, it’s nice to see some Cadillacs making an appearance here instead of the usual crop of birds. But then again, Miuccia Prada’s always got print on the mind and with a belt on this jacket, we’ve got ourselves a look that’s icy cool for a cover.

Otherwise that dropped shoulder seam and shapeless waist makes even runway model Ymre Stiekema look like a fridge covered in car-shaped magnets:
