Claire Danes' Juliet will be heaven forever

By Anna Heaton, April 7, 2017

Next week is a pretty big deal as far as weeks go. Why, you ask? Well, because it's home to Claire Danes' birthday (38 this year, say what?!). At 17, she hit our screens and stole our hearts as the Juliet to Leonardo DiCaprio's Romeo in Baz Luhrmann's epic 1996 version of Romeo + Juliet. Let's relive the magic, shall we?

We defy you not to swoon pretty damn hard over a baby-faced Claire and Leo. So, 'fess up: how many times have you whipped out Juliet's ethereal costume when the fancy dress invites have rolled in? Same. Providing eternal outfit inspo for the leave-it-till-last-minute birthday girl, everything about this get-up is heavenly. And, angel wings aside, that pleated dress is so necessary for SS17. Romeo done.
