Met Gala 2014: As Soon As They Could, Stars Changed Into Pants

May/06/2014 at 05:13 PM ET

At a Met Gala for which the theme was “White Tie and Decorations,” we weren’t surprised to see a lot of extremely haute gowns hitting the red carpet. And since extremely haute gowns tend to come with a great deal of discomfort, we also weren’t surprised to see many attendees changing into different looks for the afterparty (à la the Oscars). Of course, plenty of stars just changed into less cumbersome — but still super-glamorous — dresses (Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon and Rihanna come to mind), but the biggest trend this year was doing a total style 180° altogether and attending the afterparty in casual pants.

As far as Homeland star hair change-ups go, it’s not quite Damien Lewis shaving off all his hair, but it’s still noteworthy. Claire Danes has traded in her sunny golden shade for something deeper, richer and a little more mysterious (someone alert Carrie Mathison!).

Emmys 2013 Beauty Breakdown: The Lips & Tips Roundup

Sep/23/2013 at 12:12 PM ET

We’ve already doled out some major Emmys beauty superlatives (Lena Dunham, we’re looking at you … and your eyeshadow). But on Monday morning, we woke up with the urge to zero in on the best smiles and nails of the night. Spoiler alert: There wasn’t much in the way of out-there experimentation this year, but that suits us just fine, since we’re happy to copy their looks for ourselves.

Claire Danes's Emmys Hair: Should She Cut It For Real?

Sep/22/2013 at 08:30 PM ET

We’ve had our hearts broken by faux bobs before, but we thought Claire Danes might be different. When we got a glimpse of the star’s super-short hair as she passed by the camera, there was a flurry of excitement around the office. “This could be the real thing!” we shouted.

RELATED: Even more Emmys coverage right here!

Alas, our enthusiasm was short-lived. Mere moments later, during a truly delightful mock interview with her BFF Lena Dunham (who grabbed the mic from Ryan Seacrest — we think she may have missed her true calling), Danes revealed that her chin-length cut was pinned under and for one night only.

Sigh. Once we got over our disappointment, we got to thinking: Danes looks pretty awesome with the do, so perhaps she should take the plunge and chop her hair for real.

What do you think? Should Danes get herself to the salon and go for a bob?

Claire Danes Goes All 'Glam Carrie Mathison' For Vogue

Homeland fans may never get that moment where Carrie and Brody finally get some peaceful snuggle time — so Vogue stepped in and made it happen for them.

And then to put the icing on the cake, they taped an adorable video of their real life alter egos, co-stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis answering questions about their favorite things, with Lewis speaking in his real, super-sexy British accent.

Oh yeah, and the clothes are nice too. Danes poses in gorgeous looks from Donna Karan New York, Hermès, Narciso Rodriguez (in the photo below — Danes calls him her favorite designer) and Burberry Prorsum (on the cover).

PHOTOS: Check out summer-perfect star hair here!

But as beautiful and light as the photos are, Danes gets serious in the interview, talking about her experiences with “mean girls” as a teen (and grown-up!) and dark times when she wasn’t acting. But when you watch the way her face lights up in the video while talking about baby Cyrus, you’ll know she’s no Carrie Mathison.

Check out the interview and all the photos here or in the August issue, on stands July 23, then tell us: What do you think of Danes’s photos with Lewis? Are you excited for Homeland to return?

Seventies Hair Is Huge (Literally!) at the White House Correspondents Dinner

The jokes were biting, the gowns were gorgeous and the hair was big (and feathered) at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night.

Beth Behrs, Sofia Vergara and Claire Danes all were rocking their version of the Farrah Fawcett — between Behrs’s wispy, sideswept bangs, Vergara’s cascading curls and Danes’s outwardly swept, feathered and curled front tendrils, the three stars could have recreated Fawcett’s iconic poster.

And though the hair was retro, the gowns were all modern (Behrs wore Donna Karan Atelier, Vergara was in Herve L Leroux and Danes wore Prada). And all three ladies were some of the most stunning at the party (and they had some major competition!)

Tell us: What do you think of these stars’ fine feathered hair?
