Claire Danes, 36, is showing off one show-stopping look after another for the December 2015 issue of Allure magazine! For her second cover for the beauty magazine, the Homeland actress went full on glam, rocking a plunging Lanvin gown and a bold lip. We’re loving her look and, even more so, what she had to say about fashion, fame and the one red carpet question she wishes people would stop asking. Get the details on her cover story below!

For her cover shoot, photographer Sebastian Kim captured her in a array of gorgeous evening gowns and a bold berry lip color. “Her character in Homeland isn’t glamorous, so we wanted to capture her in a more elegant way,” explained Allure‘s creative director Paul Cavaco of the shoot. Ditching the more buttoned-up looks she wears on the show, Claire went for a bolder look, rocking a romantic blue silk Lanvin gown that showed off her bare cleavage for the cover. Other looks included a black and gold sequin gown also by Lanvin, and a plunging LBD by Rochas.
In addition to the gorgeous photos, Claire also sat down for a candid interview, in which she touched upon a number of fashion and beauty topics, including her hilarious response to Hollywood’s most annoying question: What are you wearing? “When somebody asks me who I’m wearing, I always see myself with a BabyBjörn, carrying a little tiny Karl Lagerfeld, like, ‘I’m wearing Chanel,'” she says.
That being said, the bizarreness of fame is not lost on Claire. Take her first encounter with President Obama when he revealed he was a fan of hers at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. “He said, ‘Claire, you’re a fine actress.’ And I said—just like a total idiot—’You’re a fine president.’ And he said, ‘’You’re a finer actress than I am president,'” Claire recalled: “And it’s true.” (She’s being sarcastic, of course.) “That is a joke, for the record.”
Being the red carpet star that she is, it was only fitting that Claire should also reveal her best piece of fashion and beauty advice to the magazine. “Avoid overkill,” she explained. “Its either eyes or lips. Its like legs or boobs: You shouldn’t do both. That’s always the first question when you sit down to get ready for the night.” Noted!
