Claire Underwood

Ok, I'm late to the House of Cards party but I'm whopping it wildly now! I think Claire Underwood, as played by Robin Wright is an amazing character. I've read several articles comparing her to Lady Macbeth and that's an interesting comparison. Lady Macbeth was seen as the driving force behind the downfall of her essentially good husband. She was the conniving Eve in Scotland's Garden of Eden so to speak, tempting her husband to do an evil deed.  Regardless, her style is superb. It's very plain and minimalist but that's the key. It doesn't scream look at me, but you do. Proving once again that simple, elegant and well tailored trump flash. What do you think of House of Cards?
