When the lights were on, the Homeland star’s Zac Posen dress looked like any other gorgeous ball gown, but it’s what happened when the lights were turned off that really got everyone buzzing. The ensemble illuminated in the dark, with a sparkling pattern throughout and darker lighting all around the edges.
Claire made sure the dress did all the talking when it came to her red carpet look, too, by pulling her hair back into a tight bun and wearing minimal jewelry and makeup. The strapless style was perfect for her bone structure and she seriously pulled it off unlike anyone else could.
This look was teased from behind on social media before the show, and fans were eagerly waiting to see who was flaunting the get-up, with many guessing it would be Heidi Klum. The reaction once it was revealed to be Claire, though, was nothing but positive, as tweets poured in about how breathtaking and elegant she looked.
Having a light-up dress obviously fit the technology/fashion theme just right. Many stars opted for edgier looks to fit the Manus x Machina portion of the concept, but Claire proved that you could wear a classic style and still get it on-point!
