Would You Wear It: Claire Danes Spandex Gear

Typically when we see celebs going to, or coming from, the gym they are in the latest and greatest gear. I recently spotted cool Claire Danes prancing around in her gym gear (complete with smartwater).

Don't get me wrong, ever since My So Called Life, I've been a Claire fan, but what's with the gear? In my opinion, spandex is one of those things that must be approached with caution. Plus, since she was going for it, why not carry a proper gym bag too? Anyways, I am curious what you guys think about Claire's super sporty spandex look -- Is this something you'd wear to workout or otherwise?

They are work out shorts, obviously. She is working out at the gym, wearing her work out shorts. I don't understand why this is even a post? She is in good shape, it's not like she needs to wear sweatpants. As far as the bag, not everyone needs a gym bag. When I went to spin class, I would just carry my purse with a water and small hand towel. My purse sat on the floor next to my bike. What's the big deal? She's at the gym working out, taking care of her body. It's not a freaking fashion show. You writers really need to come up with something more intelligent to write about. You make my head hurt with your stupidity.

I don't mind the gym outfit, I am often seen in a similar getup. What I DO mind is the fact she's not wearing a bra! What's up with that?

Looks fine to me! I wear spandex capris for my workouts - comfy, not too revealing. I don't know if everyone would feel comfortable in that outfit, but it looks very practical for working out. I hate big baggy clothing that impedes my movement. Spandex is great because it stretches with you and doesn't pinch anywhere. :)

She probably lives around the corner from her gym (looks like she's in Soho) and doesn't need a "proper gym bag". Whatever that means. She looks cute and fit. What more could you want?

Unless she was working out in it, I have no problem with the spandex. Spandex is fine for fitness...but only for fitness, since it might look dorky otherwise!

For some reason, I am always self-conscious in spandex shorts- I'd rather wear a bikini. Although, the Nike running leggings I just bought are so comfy (actually pretty cute too) that I might consider wearing them in public.

It looks like a perfectly normal gym outfit, I usually wear something like that, with ballet tights to ballet too!
