Fugger: Lena Dunham

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Lena Dunham in Giambattista Valli


Okay. I suspect some of you are not going to agree with me here. AND THAT’S OKAY. However! I actually think this is totally charming and delightful on her:

It’s sassy! It’s fun! The shoes are cute! The embroidery and shape are totally event appropriate while still being very her! And the back is good:

Fugs and Fines: “An Evening With Girls”


Every photo of Lena that we had featured her standing with compulsively crossed legs, like someone is trying to media coach her into posing a particular way. I’ve heard this is supposed to streamline you, or something, but we all know it’s more widely known as The Bladder.

Fug or Fab the Cover: Lena Dunham on Glamour


Last month, she was on Vogue, this month she’s on Glamour. Not too shabby, Lena Dunham:

I’m on record as liking the Vogue cover a lot, but I’m not quite as enamored of this one. It’s not her fault; I actually think her FACE looks great, if a wee bit dead-eyed. But I’m rarely a fan of the “oh god, you guys, I have such a headache” posing and OMG Glamour, we’re ALL over talking about her body so NO NEED TO PUT THAT ON THE COVER right OVER said body. Additionally, somewhere in a hidden room of a gelato warehouse, Tyra Banks just woke up in a cold sweat. She’s felt the presence of neckless cover shot in the universe and her chi is rattled.

How do you like it?

Well Played Cover: Lena Dunham on Vogue


The rumors were true! I have to say, I love this. (I’ll be interested to see if there’s a hullabaloo over the fact that it’s a face shot, rather than a body shot, but for my two cents, I think Elle would have gotten away with Mindy Kaling’s beauty shot if it hadn’t been the only waist-up cover of the four, as I said at the time; just having a great face on the cover isn’t that weird, and Vogue did it on last year’s February cover as well. [edit: since I wrote this, Jezebel has offered $10k for the unretouched pics, which...you know what? Vogue retouches everyone. If I were on Vogue, I would want the full f'ing treatment, myself. Anyway.]) It’s very whimsical, it’s very eye-catching, and it’s got a ton of personality. She also, not for nothing, looks very pretty but also very much like herself. That’s three Vogue covers in a row that I’ve really liked. Should I re-up my subscription?

Let’s look inside.

Fugs and Fabs: The “Girls” UK Premiere


You guys may think I’m crazy, but I’m not actually mad at any of these. Well, perhaps at you, Richard E. Grant, you burnished scamp. And Zosia’s jumpsuit and I are going through some strained times. Okay, so things aren’t as rosy as I thought, but doesn’t Lena look good?
