While we may never be able to move past her iconic white frock and angel wing combo à la Baz Luhrmann’s Juliet, Claire Danes is still very much up to speed with timeless outfits. The 44-year-old actress showcased her blossoming baby bump as she hit the red carpet to attend FX's Fleishman is in Trouble FYC event In Los Angeles – and she was simply glowing.

The star took to the floor in a sweeping black gown featuring a rounded neckline, dramatic flutter sleeves with cut-out detailing, a cascading train and a rich ebony hue with a satin finish.

Claire completed her evening attire by slipping into a classic pair of open-toe black heels that were complemented by a crimson pedicure. A selection of minimalist jewels including some thin hoop earrings and three chunky mixed metal rings infused her look with a subtle hint of elegance.

 A chic French crop was the ‘do of choice for the event. The Stardust actress wore her blonde hair parted to the side in a brave platinum bob and opted for a classic beauty blend. A flawless porcelain complexion and a rosy lip made for a natural makeup palette.

The expecting mother was joined by Mean Girls star Lizzy Caplan, who looked lavish in a high-neck lace dress and witchy purple tights. The two sweetly embraced for the cameras, with Claire’s bump taking centre stage.

Meryl Streep's daughter, fellow actress Mamie Gummer, who was also part of the film drama's cast, previously told People that their courtship had always been "low-key," telling them: "I was there when it was happening and it's something that I will never forget," adding: "I'm incredibly happy for them. They are perfect for each other."

Claire’s supplicated look comes shortly after the star attended MGM+'s Spy Among Friends New York Premiere at Crosby Street Hotel in New York. Again opting for a more avant-garde outfit choice, the mother-of-three-to-be surprised in a robe-like jumpsuit featuring ribbed panels that ran horizontally across the piece, long sleeves, sleek lapels and a belted waistline. She topped off her cosy look with some black leather point-toe boots.
