Claire Danes is on top of the world right now with an Emmy nomination for her lead role in HBO’s biopic Temple Grandin — now all she has to do is decide on the perfect red carpet look! sat down with Claire, 31, Aug. 17, inside NYC’s famous Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal, where she unveiled Valspar Paint’s new hi-def colors. While there, she EXCLUSIVELY divulged who she’ll be wearing to the 2010 Emmy Awards!

Zac Posen is making my dress. We were just working on it yesterday.”

As for how it is coming along, Claire revealed, “the color is the big question now … what color is it going to be? The actual shape is determined but the actual color … I don’t know. I think certain colors work better on me than others.”

After meeting Claire in person, we can tell you that any color will look unbelievable on the blonde stunner. But she jokingly told us there’s one color she won’t be wearing!

“I don’t think I’ll be wearing chartreuse [a mixture between yellow and green],” she said laughingly. “It’s still kind of a mystery … we will see!”

This is Claire’s second Emmy nomination, the first was back in 1994 for her role as Angela in My So Called Life. So we had to ask Claire what it was like to be nominated for a second time!

“I was so pleased that the movie was successful creatively and then I was pleased that people connected with it and liked it,” she says. “And more than anything I was pleased that Temple recognized herself in my portrayal. This is all a lovely addition to that.”
