Fug or Fab: Lena Dunham

First of all, I really like how Lena’s hair is growing out, in general, and I sort of wish I could get mine to do this. I MIGHT be able to, but it’s an experiment I am scared to undertake. Second, I just remembered I owned a dress in exactly this pattern in fifth grade, which is why I think I’m looking on it so fondly:

2016 Matrix Awards - Arrivals

It’s very slightly Watercolor Bridesmaid, I suspect it looked better in person, and I would have worn a green shoe, but overall, I appreciate this Ladylike 80s jam she’s got simmering. (PS: do not, under any circumstances, try Ladylike 80s Jam on toast.)

Tiny Fugniture: Lena Dunham

I can say truly that I enjoy Lena’s sartorial experimentation.

I don’t know about this recipe, though. It’s like a cup of Chico’s mixed with a quarter-cup of If Dolly Parton Made Coffee Filters, a half-cup of Your Spanx Are Too High, and a tablespoon of 1992. That soufflé is always going to collapse, you know?

Fug and Fab: Lena Dunham in Simone Rocha

Let me be frank. I mostly love this dress. She’s wearing it for a TV appearance, primarily, and it’s SO CUTE on TV:

Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 3

It’s the perfect length for TV; it’s so peppy and retro on her. I really wish she looked like this, like, 100% of the time.

She then threw on a coat for an event later, and changed the shoes, and it ALSO went retro:


While there is a huge part of me that wants to throw on that coat and live in at as sort of Slanket/Bathrobe proxy, the rest of me feels like she just got sucked back int0 1995, and Lena Dunham is playing the Janeane Garofalo part in Reality Bites…although, actually, now that I think about it, Lena Dunham would be GREAT in that part if they ever remake Reality Bites, which would, of course, be a period piece now. Can we please make that happen? Who else should we cast in it? Taylor Kitsch can play the Ethan Hawke part (which is basically just hipster Tim Riggins anyway), but we need a Winona. Do we have a new Winona? Will we have to ask Winona to reprise her role?

Sundance: More Fugs and Fabs (and Coats)

The ice cream truck that comes down my street was playing “White Christmas” today. EVERYONE NOT IN CALIFORNIA hates that guy right now.

Sundance Fugs and Fabs: Coats

Because at Sundance, it’s not about the CLOTHES as much as how you cover them.

Experimental in 2015: The Women of Girls

The fifth season of Girls starts up early next year — with a minted bona fide movie star in Adam Driver, whose schedule is going to get hella full pretty soon — so I figured that made now a fitting time to look back on what the cast members, each with her own distinct sense of style, wore around town in 2015. They’ve all morphed a little: Allison is still classic but is trying to adopt some edge; Lena is playing around with patterns a lot; Zosia is wearing fewer badly tailored pants and more flirty dresses; and Jemima Kirke is… well, still a LOT of the time dressing like your friendly neighborhood cult leader, but I’d miss that if she changed now.
