How to Dress Like Claire From Jurassic World
Poll: Why dress as Claire Dearing?
Creating an authentic Claire Dearing costume on a budget is a breeze with this detailed Jurassic World costume guide. Here you'll find descriptions and photos of Claire's wardrobe and creative ideas for putting together an accurate and instantly recognizable Jurassic World costume.
Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, is the park operations manager of Jurassic World. Smart and strong, Claire puts her career first until her nephews are thrust into danger during the latest Isla Nublar incident.
Claire Dearing's Outfit at a Glance
Claire Dearing Essentials
➔ Nude Heels
Undoubtedly the most controversial part of Bryce Dallas Howard's Jurassic World wardrobe (seriously, Google it), Claire's nude pumps are also the single most essential piece of this costume.
Regardless of what's already in your closet, black or brightly colored heels or flats simply will not do. Invest in a pair of spiked nude heels that lean more toward tan than pink. Aim for a heel that is at least three inches and, if possible, look for shoes with a gold accent and/or a triangle of tan snake skin.
If screen-accuracy is important to you and your budget is a bit more generous than most, the actual shoes worn by Claire in the film are the Camdyn Leather Pumps by Sam Edelman in classic nude. Though sold out at most retailers and on Amazon, they start at $50 on eBay.
➔ Lavender Tank Top
Although Claire wears one outfit throughout the entirety of Jurassic World, there are two distinct costumes to choose from.
- Claire the clean, corporate bosslady who manages a wildly successful theme park
- Claire the strong, dirt-covered female who battles mutant dinosaurs to save her nephews
If you choose to dress as the strong, dirt-covered version of Claire, a simple light purple tank is the top for you.
➔ White Blouse & Waist Belt
If, on the other hand, you choose to dress as corporate Claire, a freshly pressed, all-white outfit is your goal.
Start with an opaque white silk blouse. Claire's shirt buttons down the front and a stretchy white belt, which she ditches after entering the jungle, accents her waist.
➔ White Skirt
Once you've got Claire's blouse figured out, shift your focus to the skirt. Claire's clean white skirt rests at her natural waist (i.e. the smallest part of your waist, NOT your hips). Be sure to choose a skirt that hits just below your knees.
➔ White Jacket
Claire's blazer is distinct because of its thin lapel and slightly boxy shape. If you plan to dress as Claire on Halloween and live in a colder climate, adding this jacket to your costume should be a no-brainer. Not only is it straight from the screen, it'll keep you cozy and warm.
Claire Dearing Hair & Makeup
➔ Sleek Red Lob
At the beginning of Jurassic World, Claire's hair and bangs are perfectly coiffed. As a park executive, her severe and highly styled look is one of the ways she communicates her authority to investors and guests.
If you choose to dress as we-have-an-asset-out-of-containment Claire, give your hair a textured, wavy look. Claire runs through the humid jungles of Isla Nublar and her formerly pin-straight locks transform into a sweaty mess of tangled red strands.
Claire Dearing Makeup Tutorial
➔ Natural Makeup
Claire's makeup is professional and complements the natural angles of her face. As the movie progresses, Claire's makeup becomes less and less polished, smudged by sweat and stress.
Bryce Dallas Howard's actual makeup routine, like many actresses, involves a large number of products from famous, expensive brands like Dior and Armani. The same look can be achieved with drugstore finds or the makeup you already have in your everyday arsenal.
Claire Dearing Accessories
➔ Rose Gold Jewelry
Given that Claire primarily works indoors, she accessorizes like someone who is not expecting to run from dinosaurs.
Throughout the film, Jurassic World's heroine dons five pieces of rose gold jewelry: a bar necklace, a geometric ring on her index finger, a dainty bracelet, a watch and stud earrings. While accessorizing your costume, keep in mind that Claire's accessories are all sleek, modern and expensive-looking.

What a unique hub! I loved her outfit and her hair was beautiful! She looked very "French" to me in the movie with her long bob, pumps and simple colors. Hope you have a wonderful weekend~ :)

I do! But I'm probably a little biased because my boyfriend and I are actually going to dress as Claire and Owen.

Do you think this will be a popular costume this year? It seems like her hair is what makes her really stand out. I love that color:)
