In Which We Fall Even More In Love With Claire Danes

It's pretty hard not to love Claire Danes — from her stint as the endearing Angela Chase on My So-Called Life, to her role as Leo DiCaprio's beloved in William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (okay, maybe we hated her a little back then), we've always been huge fans.
So, we're thrilled to see the typically ultra-femme star going a little edgy and vamping it up on Capitol File's May/June cover. This girl seriously rocks some dark lipstick, and the contrast with her all-white ensemble is majorly fierce. And it doesn't hurt that she talks up her breakout hit Homeland, which does an amazing job of portraying the DMV.
As CIA officer Carrie Mathison, Danes shows her acting chops by effortlessly playing the tough-girl-with-a-sensitive-side role, while managing to be casually beautiful at the same time. Here's hoping the 33-year-old keeps it coming — and keeps winning our hearts time and again. (Just Jared)
