Fugger: Lena Dunham

Emmy Awards Fug Carpet: Lena Dunham in Giambattista Valli


If that shirt indicates what I think it does, then Lena Dunham has the most fun bowling team EVER. (I do kind of want to curl up in — or even on — that skirt, though.)

And while we're here...

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:

Let’s check in with Ms Dunham.

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.
