As you may be aware do to our previous posts, Claire attended last night’s Emmy Awards, accompanied by her husband Hugh Dancy and wearing a beautiful red Givenchy dress. InStyle has published an article about Claire’s preparations for the event, which includes insights by her makeup artist, Matin Maulawizada, and her hairstylist, Peter Butler. Read it below:
She may have played grunge queen Angela Chase in My So-Called Life, but for tonight’s Emmy Awards, Claire Danes‘s beauty look gave a nod to the more glamorous end of the ’90s. “Claire’s Givenchy dress reminded me of the supermodels at the end of the ’80s and into the early ’90s–Karen Mulder in particular,” her makeup artist Matin tells InStyle exclusively. “She was always perfectly blonde with beautiful lips and eyes, and I’ve been dreaming of doing that look, but in a more modern way.”
Rather than playing up just one area of her face, Matin didn’t skimp on the drama, choosing to emphasize both her eyes and lips against a glowing complexion. “It’s more dramatic than usual, but it’s an ode to those glamorous days of the supermodels,” he adds. Of course, Matin and Danes’s hairstylist Peter Butler had a blast while prepping her for the big event. “Peter and I have been working with her for so many years. Her baby, husband, and parents were around, and it truly felt like being at home,” Matin says. “She was playing really beautiful music, so we were listening to that, chillilng out, and she brought along crafts and trinkets she had picked up in South Africa, so we were opening presents and having a lot of fun.” Keep reading to get a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at how Danes and her glam squad pulled her look together, and to find out how you can recreate it yourself!
