Claire Danes Globes 2012.jpg

Forgoing her usual favourites Calvin Klein, Narciso Rodriguez and Zac Posen, actress Claire Danes picked a stunning backless number from the J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2012 collection for the Golden Globes.

This is a dress that definitely deserves a back view. The monochrome column (which has a white panel on the front) looks beautiful from the front, but it comes to life when you see that stunning jewelled back.

It's a custom-made dress, adapted from the shorter version shown when the collection debuted.

Is Claire an early contender for best dressed? The gown is classic without being boring and it's tailored perfectly - she's definitely giving Pippa Middleton a run for her money in the killer bum stakes!
