I was thrilled to hear that Zac Posen partnered with Target for an exclusive yet highly accessible line. Last month, the designer unveiled his collection for the giant retailer through a chic and cozy party.

Of course, Zac Posen fans – models and celebrities alike- were there to make an appearance and get first dibs on the designer’s collection.

Notable among the attendees were Maggie Gyllenhaal, Claire Danes, Ginnifer Goodwin, Michelle Trachtenberg, Selma Blair, and supermodels Coco Rocha and Alek Wek.

It was, however, Claire Danes who caught my eye. The actress wore a long, bright printed number from the new label that simply looked delightful. The dress did wonders for her pale skin and strawberry-blonde hair:

Seeing it up close was even more of a delight as I found it printed with what looked like multicolored cigarette sticks! How quirky!

The belt is the only thing I would probably want to change in Claire’s outfit. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to remove it. I mean, replace it with something thicker and less textured.

Pretty as she is, Claire’s body has a long-waisted torso. To balance this, she should have worn a thicker belt with the dress, and with the busy print, the belt should have been the opposite – plain and simple.

Other than this minor issue, Claire Danes rocked her Zac Posen outfit perfectly. If looking at Claire’s bright printed Zac Posen dress excites you, feel free to shop for it at Target. Or, you may also try these beautiful printed maxi pieces from T-Bags.
