Claire Danes recently admitted she's a "sales slut" who prefers her jeans (and sweatpants!) with lots of stretch. But let's be honest: she's also one of fashion's chicest darlings, BFFs with the likes of Karl, Miuccia, Valentino and other famous faces.

So we've come to expect daring fashion risks from the "Homeland" star, like the one she took last night at the premiere of HBO's "Girls."

The fresh-faced blonde (seriously, has she aged at all?) wore a printed Preen frock with a bit of an identity disorder: on the one hand, it's a staid LBD with a hint of green... on the other, it's a wild optic print done in black and mustard. A bit all-over-the-place, shall we say?

Fashion plate (and stylish Vanity Fair cover girl) that she is, Claire wisely accessorized with a basic black clutch and peep-toe heels. But could simple extras save this wacky dress?
