Aside from the great honor of being included, Claire Danes could also look at the last couple of days as a trial run for the upcoming awards season, what with all the cameras and the wardrobe changes.
The Homeland star, nominated once again today for a Screen Actors Guild Award and probably due for another Golden Globe nod tomorrow, is in Oslo, Norway, where she attended the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony and a black-tie banquet last night and then cohosted the annual concert honoring the winner today.
And three events equals three different dresses, of course.
FIrst up, Danes wore a sleeveless black and white shift studded with equally monochromatic floral appliqués to watch the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons receive the Peace Prize at Oslo City Hall.
Hubby Hugh Dancy, clad in a sedate blue suit and striped tie, joined her in the audience.
That night, however, the couple glammed it up for the Nobel Banquet, Dancy in a traditional black tuxedo and Danes in a strapless ice-blue satin Dolce & Gabbana gown with intricate embroidery on the bodice and the bottom of the skirt.
Danes has been maintaining her darker 'do, and she kept her hair flowing in loose waves for the formal affair.
The festivities continued today with the actress assuming her role as cohost, with Aaron Eckhart, of the annual Nobel Prize Concert. Scheduled performers included Mary J. Blige, James Blunt, Swedish singer Zara Larsson and Norwegian hip-hop duo Envy.
Danes wore a rather summery-looking floral dress by Valentino.
