Lena Dunham in Valentino

Posted on January 10, 2013

Okay, we’re going to compliment this look; we’re warning you now.

 

Lena Dunham attends the premiere of ‘Girls’ Season 2 in New York City in a Valentino jumpsuit.

Valentino Strapless Jumpsuit

Is it problematic? Of course, darlings. The pleated pants are an offense unto God, as is the buttbow. And the bodice is collapsing on her. But this is a major step forward for the co-winner of the T Lo  Award for Worst Red Carpet Look of 2012, if only because she put the effort in. She actually tried to get dressed up for this event. And while it’s far from perfect, it’s a germ of a good idea. Rip off the butt bow and turn the bottom half into simple straight-legged pants and this could’ve been a killer look for her.

And her hair looks cute.

Now go ahead. Talk about how much she annoys you. God knows it was all Lorenzo could talk about while he was putting the post together.

      I quote Go Fug Yourself:  For a lady who created, directs, writes, and runs a show called Girls, sometimes Lena Dunham does hers no favors.

      • ChiKat67

        I was thinking about their comments as well.  

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

          “This is almost aggressively trying to punch her figure in the nuts.” That’s what’s up. But I lean toward the TLo appreciation of her effort. Really, so so much better than the top-with-no-pants number. If she could have had it tailored better…sigh.

          • ChiKat67

            Apparently she thinks we hate on her fashion sense because she’s not a size 00.  No Lena, I hate everyone who mistakes tops for dresses, not just you.  

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

              Methinks if she had to comment that she felt we hated her fashion for her size, she is a closet personal hater of her size. There are plenty of curvy non-haters out there who look great in their outfits, because they celebrated themselves.

            • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

              Exactly. Look at Beth Ditto or Adele. Beth is much larger than Lena, but she always looks fucking awesome. Even when she’s wearing something that’s technically insane.

            • Sobaika

              Beth Ditto is so rad I can not handle it sometimes.

            • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

              I love you so much right now. :D

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

              True that. I was thinking of a girl I knew some years ago when I wrote that – she was almost 6′ tall, had HUGE (I mean special-order bra) boobies, and was built like a giant horse, but that girl was always looking fierce as shit in her jeans and tops, just because she knew she was beautiful and she went to the trouble to get clothes that fit her well.

      • Celandine1

        To be fair, it doesn’t do the model’s girls any favors either. This jumpsuit is very poorly designed.

        • http://twitter.com/dollsaga Dollsaga

          at least, not so many wrinkles & creases on the model like its on her.

      • EveEve

        You know what?  I like this!  Why?  Because she’s not simply one more starlet/ingenue being dressed by stylists in bland boring, safely-but-ever-so-slightly-edgy clothes that you just know she can’t stand and would not in a million years have chosen for herself, and will take off and return to the atelier as soon as the lights go off.  This gal looks like she’s having the time of her life, riding the wave while she can, and is completely relaxed in her own body. That’s why!  The bow is a nice counterpoint to the ink. And her hair and shoes are super cute.

        • charlotte

          That doesn’t mean she can’t wear flattering clothes while having the time of her life. In my opinion there is a huge difference between bland/generic and unflattering.

          • FrayedMachine

            This. Being a curvy girl that dresses herself and takes a considerable amount of pride in how they look… there’s next to no way I’d be caught dead wearing something like that because it would do my body no justice or service. 
            Do love the hair, though, and at least her attitude -is- great (unlike other red-carpet chickadees).

            • RebeccaKW

               Exactly.  Look at Rebel Wilson.  She is larger than Lena, but still manages to dress in a flattering way and has fun doing it.  And I can’t think of one curvy girl (myself included) who would willingly wear something that squeezed my upper boob area into fat rolls and did what that pantsuit is doing to her hips/ass.  (it’s doing terrible things to the tiny models hips)

              Now, while I don’t care for this look, I do agree that this is leaps and bounds better than what she’s worn in the past.  And I also like her hair.

          • EveEve

            Every woman has a difference sense of what flatters her. Some women actually like accentuating their ample hips and don’t try to minimize them, or make them look “proportionate” or whatever. Maybe it’s a cultural thing.  I will agree that the top has some fit issues, but overall, I give her a lot of credit for this one. 

            • PaulaBerman

               It doesn’t fit! That is the problem.

          • formerlyAnon

             Yes. I’ve been on the line of unhealthily thin and I’ve been 50+ pounds over weight and I’ve mostly been places in between. You can wear something unflattering and something flattering at every size. Flattering does not have to mean hiding one’s deviation from entertainment-industry-thinness, but it does mean presenting one’s body shape well, not being clad in pointless rumples and folds.

    • Sobaika

      Nope.

    • http://twitter.com/mktp michael tanner

      first post OMG! … i dont know who she iss but i think this looks assy

      • SassieCassy

        assy indeed.

        • Ana_ragu

           I love that SassieCassy writes assy! Morning poetry…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=678337501 Carla Axtman

      I’m glad she put some effort in..but DEAR GOD. The fit is awful.  And while her haircut is cute, it would have been a good idea to at least run a comb through it before doing the step & repeat.

      • EditKitten

        I’ll say as someone with a similar cut: The last thing you want to do is comb it. It’s a messy look, and making it look less so really ruins any edgy effect. In fact, it makes it look like you’re 4.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=678337501 Carla Axtman

          Really? Cuz that rooster tail in the back off of her crown is just tragic.

    • ChiKat67

      Hair is cute but this makes her look EXTREMELY short-waisted and unnecessariy hippy.  However kudos for actually wearing pants this time.  

      • http://twitter.com/chylde chylde

         and not just a shirt like before? lol

    • Introspective

      seriously? wearing valentino with no foundation garments??? 

      homegirl needs a bra and some spanx. like yesterday. good haircut though.

    • d4divine

      Pleates??????!!!!!!!

    • butterflysunita

      I think she looks great.  Hair and makeup are pretty, and I’m so happy she’s wearing pants that the fit issues are not even bothering me.  And she’s got a beautiful smile.  

      • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

        I think everything from the strip at the top of the outfit up looks beautiful.  She has nice shoulders and her face and hair look fantastic.  Especially her hair.  That’s a great cut for her.

        But everything below the white strip, even with the effort, is kind of awful.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000052021548 Nizea Paqueo

        she remembered the pants only because it was attached to the top..good call Lena, from now on, only wear jumpsuits!

    • http://twitter.com/maggie162 Maggie

      Darling Lena, there are professional clothing-alterers called “tailors”. They take garments that you purchase in a standard size and adjust them to fit your personal body.  I can suggest some names if you want.

    • Imasewsure

      Adorable from the neck up… the rest is unspeakably bad

    • kcarb1025

      I know this is not going to be a popular opinion around here, but she is just fugly. And there is not a lot that can be done about it. (However, covering up those godawful tattoos would be a start at simply making an effort to improve.)

      ETA: Plus, she is infinitely more insufferable than Anne Hathaway, if you can believe that, based on those quotes that Gawker leaked from her book.

      • Sobaika

        I also find her more insufferable than the unholy combination of mosquitoes, humidity, and no AC.

        That being said, her looks and body mods are neither here nor there and don’t deserve critique.

      • snarkykitten

         getting them touched up or covered up by a good artist would go further, I think, than lasering them off. The house tattoo on her back is poorly placed and the color is falling out, but could be fixed up.

        But ymmv.

    • http://twitter.com/chylde chylde

      Why does she annoy you, TLo? I find her quite refreshing from the churned out starlets you’re usually going on about on this site. 

      • http://twitter.com/mirrormirrorxx Paola Thomas

        At least she has talent.  Unlike many.

        • SassieCassy

          so if you go through tlo’s previous posts on girls and lena dunham and the other people from that show you will see that there are about a billion reasons we are not on her bandwagon, starting with we just dont think she is that talented. like at all

          • http://twitter.com/chylde chylde

             Oh come on…  In today’s world of Honey Boo Boo morons and packaged/ processed Taylor Swifts, this girl’s got way more talent in her pinky. And no she’s NOT unjustly overhyped, like so much of the schlock out there!

            • SassieCassy

              believe it or not people can have different opinions about someone. shocking i know. and we are not talking about honey boo boo here. lena dunham is all hype and zero substance. glad you like her tho. when you pick up her book i hope its worth the 3 million she got paid for it.

            • http://twitter.com/peacebang Victoria Weinstein

              Do NOT be hating on my Boo Boo. 

            • Sobaika

              This is neither here nor there, but Lena Dunham is apparently a major Taylor Swift fan.

    • MoHub

      Reference Anthony Ryan’s last PRAS design to reinforce what a contrasting straight band across the but does to make one look exceptionally droopy. Guess Lena doesn’t get Lifetime.

    • Kayceed

      True – it is not good, but quite a leap from a teal smock, pantsless ensemble. Also, there is a brightness about her in these shots, a vitality which is helping the overall effect.

    • savicevic

      No.

    • MissMariRose

      When a jumpsuit makes a size 2 model look hippy and disproportionate, a girl shaped like Lena Dunham has no chance whatsoever. Shame on Valentino.

      Putting that aside, where is this “effort” she supposedly put in? Is it hiding in one of the baggy folds of this ill-advised and ill-fitting colorless jumpsuit or the boring black pumps?

      • EveEve

        This assumes that no woman actually LIKES her ample hips is all about trying to minimize them!

        • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

           I don’t think MissMariRose implied that at all.

          • EveEve

            well, perhaps not, but “hippy” especially when used in conjunction with “disproportionate” does tend to be imply the negative, and not the positive.  One sees far fewer comments that a woman is disproportionate when it is the bust that is ample.

      • SassieCassy

        she put on pants and designer pants, at that. looks like she showered too

        that is the effort

        • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

           And cute makeup and got her hair done and borrowed some killer heels. All excellent effort.

    • http://twitter.com/peacebang Victoria Weinstein

      Maybe this gets a pass  because she’s actually wearing enough clothes (like pants)? Or wearing clothes at all? It feels like she’s going for a sort of Liza in her Halston days type thing: boho New Yorky show biz royalty manic neurotic dreamgirl. But she’s not achieving it. She just looks like a mess.

      • VeryClaire

        She actually looked better in the outfit with no pants, and that’s saying something.

    • teensmom99

      Hair, make up and shoes are great and the line of hte top is good–if only that would have been a dress.  But I was thinking, she would look good in the Halstons Liza Minelli wore in the 70s.  Maybe she needs to be wearing Jessica Lawrence’s “shirley Maclaine at the Palladium outfit” and she could pull it off with some fun shoes & make it look contemporary.
      And do I ever hate tattoos (sorry to start that discussion).

    • Tatiana Luján

      Her legs look good, I agree on that. I wish the top was separated from the panst, so that she coul wear it over them. 

    • snarkykitten

      that’s just embarrassing. 

    • TSkot

      Valentino is calling his lawyers as we speak.

    • MK03

      NO. NO JUMPSUITS. ON ANYONE.

    • StephanieLovesTLo

      She’s on my irrational annoyance list but I applaud the huge step forward demonstrated by the inclusion of pants, pleated or not.

    • RedRaven617

      She is making a classic mistake for women who have her shape. The pants (not pleated) should had something on top with more weight and drama to pull the eye up. With this outfit, the plan is to have the black camouflage her weak spots, but leaves the eyes no where else to look. Even big necklace or earrings would have helped.

    • UglyTalents

      Haters gonna hate, but I dig this chick. She needs help dressing, clearly … but you are so right: she is on to something that would work here. Her hair does look good. She’s got fine hair; she needs layers and shortness like this.

      • ecallaw1977

        I know she annoys a lot of people, but I’ve never seen or show or any interviews so I’m kind of indifferent as to her personality.  She may not be a supermodel, but she has some things going for her and could be SO much more attractive with the right clothes and styling. 

        • UglyTalents

           She’s definitely cute. She has a retro sort of face to me, like … I dunno; maybe that is why the pixie works well on her. I don’t like her in her usual  “hipster” getup, but … I’m a mom of early-twenty-somethings, and I live in Brooklyn, so … overdosing on that whole look.

      I have no issue with her, just with how crazy hippy that outfit makes her look. It’s so sad and droopy. Like the fashion version of Eeyore. 

    • YayaGurl

      Shirt, no pants.  Pants, very little shirt.  What is she afraid will happen if she wears both at the same time?

    • Mb

      Hair and makeup: good, clothes: bad.  But what is that stupid tattoo on her upper back?

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        It’s the original set drawings from “Little House On The Prairie”.

        • Mb

          Probably seemed like a good idea at the time, especially since NOBODY in the world would have that tattoo

    • Super_Red

      That is just…. No. No No No No No. (also, all those nos are completely separate from my insane dislike of Lena Dunham. She drives me crazy. But seriously, does girl not own a mirror? She has access to Valentino and she looks like ass? I just don’t get it. 

    • DominoEstella

      PUHLEEEEAAASE!  This girl has no idea how to dress her body.  I hate looking at her.  I’m insulted by her clothes.

    • kimmeister

      I wouldn’t call that a buttbow, more of a bra-strap level bow.  I actually don’t mind it.

      I do, however, mind the poor fit, pleats, and the concept of a strapless jumpsuit in general.  I must’ve been very hard to sit down without flashing everyone.

    • Le_Sigh

      I’m just relieved she fixed her teeth!  Neck up she’s got a touch of the Liza going on.  The rest is… wayll, she tried.

      • H2olovngrl

        I just really like the way you wrote out “well”

        . Just the right inflection for this fiasco.??

    • charlotte

      This is just bad. If she continues to dress like this, she’ll return to the 2013 worst- dressed list.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I appreciate that she actually made an effort. It’s not the most flattering n thing, but chickie tried. I still HATE her show, though.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Oh my god, at least she’s wearing pants this time.

    • suzq

      The shoes are killer. 

      That’s all I got.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      In the pic of her looking over her shoulder she reminds me of Alyson Hannigan. I think if one must wear a jumpsuit, one with a bit of boning in the bodice would have been better.

      • http://twitter.com/sully27 sully27

         I thought the same thing, I think it is the way that she is smiling.

    • http://twitter.com/mirrormirrorxx Paola Thomas

      I am looking forward to seeing Lena learn to dress herself, because she is me – short, big boobed, thick waisted, nice shoulders, face that looks oh so much better with short hair. And believe me no designer in the WORLD designs with that combination in mind.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

      For once she’s embraced the fact that she’s a woman and not a girl. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1069083922 Brady Galan

      She doesn’t annoy me at all.  I just think the outfit is not doing her any favors.

    • AngelaGreen

      It’s not saying much, but I don’t think she’s every looked prettier.

    • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

      Oh god, WHAT is going on with the fit in the bust?

    • Monday1900

      Oh, man this is BAA-AAAD!  She looks lumpy and dumpy and the tattoos aren’t helping.

      she says   “No, I dont have a perfect body for this,  bold waistline & big butt are my assets, I dont need to hide them. not only I love the wrinkles & creases I created on this outfits, I also love to show you the visible zippers on the side. please  watch my back, you’ll have to see  the Bow-Wow factor ”

    • miagain

      strapless jumpsuit???? what in hell happens when you try to sit down???

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Shapewear would have turned this into a win instead of a ‘well, she tried’. Her hair and makeup are very cute!

      • MilaXX

         I don’t think even shape wear could compete against pleats. They are difficult for even the very thin to wear well.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Cleary/1201575213 Patrick Cleary

      I don’t know who she is, but that outfit is a poochy-middle offense to God.

    • RocknRollmom

      We have lots of discussions about this young woman in my home.  I generally end up defending her notwithstanding her connections, background, the at times irritating nature of the show, the fact that she saw fit to go out in public without pants, etc. My impression is that notwithstanding all the stuff directed at her, she is pretty grounded. 
      Oh yeah, the outfit.  I like it on her.  I wish she would have worn a brighter lip and I will never ever like the tats but she looks cute and.  Valentino should be smaked for the pleats.

    • RocknRollmom

      That would be “and relaxed, happy.”

      “Smacked” instead of smaked.  Not sure what smaked is but it might be as effective as a smack!

      And I really hate whatever computer “stuff” is preventing me from editing.

      • alyce1213

        Same thing happened when I tried to correct something.  So I reloaded the page, tried again and it worked.

    • hellkell

      I gasped. Not in a good way. I’m not sure how this could be MORE unflattering.

    • julnyes

      I don’t loathe her since I have never seen any of her creative output. I am unhappy with looking at her however because of her never ending poor sartorial choices. The hairstyle is cute, but everything else is bland, droopy, puffy or pulling.  

    • In_Stitches

       Why is it so loose through the torso?  I think it might have worked, or at least not failed as hard, had it been properly tailored to fit her.  Looks like the seat needs to be taken out a smidge and the bodice taken in. 

    • marilyn

      She has fat arms.  This trainwreck of an outfit is designed to show off her tattoos.  She may have tried, but did not pick something that would make her more attractive.  The harsh black/white combo is bad too harsh for her.  From the neck up, she looks like a soccer mom.  From the neck down, she is trying to be edgy and dressed up.  There is nothing good about this.

    • alyce1213

      Did Anthony Ryan make that top for her?

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Lumpy dumpy Lena. What in the world are those tattoos? Side-by-side outhouses?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1241487378 Lauren Lynch Fox

      Some girls do not look good strapless (me included). I do like her pixie hair and her attitude!

    • http://houseofestrogen.typepad.com/ Ann

      It may be an improvement, but I still think it could land her in worst dressed category. It is ill-fitting, unflattering, and the tattoos look tired.

      • JosephLamour

        Yet, they’re a part of her skin forever, so that’s not very nice.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      As much as I hate the idea of signing off on a strapless jumpsuit, I would have if only she’d had it properly fitted.  It’s the right level of formality for the event and I love the hair and makeup.

      • JosephLamour

        I actually said “She looks niiice.” which I have never said before about anything she’s wearing up until this point. I like her hair too. I also really like the juxtaposition of people with tattoos wearing classic styles– I often dress like Don Draper in a polo with all my tatts showing. Good stuff.

    • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

      Girl, that is not your jumpsuit. 

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      Kittens, we’ve already banned two people from the comments section for thinking it was okay to critique her body rather than her clothes. We have no problem doing it again. 

    • Kenisha Hill Phillips

      I understand why you’re complimenting the look, but unfortunately, what good of the concept is lost in the bad of the execution.

    • Qitkat

      Too much weight given to how unfortunate the Worst look was; under any other circumstances, this is a terrible choice she or her stylist made. Her hair is cute though.

    • MilaXX

      I agree it’s a step in the right direction. Hair and makeup look really pretty. The midsection is the problem; the aforementioned pleats and whatever the bust is doing that is making her look like she has 2 layers of boobs. As much as I dislike them, I think I could forgive the butt bow, if the problems in the front were fixed.

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      It’s very her, and I think it’s chic. Girl loves her own shoulders, and why not? Girl has eccentric tattoos to show off. Once I realized who her father was, she started to make more sense to me.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

      I hate to echo, but I do love the concept here – hate the execution, though. Everything in the torso area is ill-fitting and unflattering. The pants don’t even look good on the model.

    • VeryClaire

      That’s possibly the least flattering outfit I’ve ever seen on this site. She looked better in the outfit with no pants.

    • formerlyAnon

      Her head is very cute here, and the smiles are wonderful.

      Otherwise, she looks too much like those if us who are not invited to stand upon the red carpet at events and who dress without money or professional assistance in this for it to be a great choice for photography – don’t we all want to wear something that *flatters* us?  

      To be honest, she looks worse than I ever managed to during my jumpsuit days, because I was paranoid about their propensity to be unflattering. And I have photographic evidence that I could have used a little help.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Gah.  It may be a step forward from actually forgetting her pants, but that’s not saying much.  It’s like that monstrosity on PR last week, except that somehow, it’s fitted worse.

      Oh look, she wore pants!  Man, but those are some pants…  I do wish they were flattering because those pleats are just too Humpty Dumpty for me to approve of.  And yes, cute hair.  Makeup?  I would prefer something more dramatic to go with the insanity of her outfit.

    • Judy_J

      Cute hair.  Makeup is OK.  The rest is pure dreck.

    • BeaDee

      It doesn’t fit her. Girl needs to wear stuff that actually flatters her shape.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3OBBIZ6M6TBHXYURMKXYMTC7RE Rita

      Lena is a rebel.  But even rebels have to acknowledge style and proportion aren’t something to be pooped on.  Maybe Chelsea Handler could do an intervention for her.  Chelsea is getting into fashion more and more, and yet she complete flaunts propriety in every other respect.  

      • demidaemon

        That’s true, although she (Chelsea) still does have some pretty horrible misses on her own show. But her shoes are usually fabulous!

      If I were Valentino, I’d so send a cease-and-desist.

    • Judy_S

      I agree with the TLo analysis.  The jumpsuit is not well designed for anybody, but it is designed, and it is in the direction of glamorous, and it shows off her tatoos…. and she looks comfortable in it. Glamor and comfort, not a bad combination.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      I wish this outfit had drop waisted hammer style pants.  Because if you are going to do it wrong, do it so wrong that everyone will be left silent and slack jawed in awe.

    • Natalie Bryan

      I kind of love the butt bow oh god what’s happening to me?

    • 3boysful

      The pleats are heinous, but I like the bow, which is technically a Middle of the Back–rather than Butt–bow.   Unfortunately, however, it is competing with her body art, which bugs me.

      At least she has on pants this time.

    • libraangel

      All I can say is that Ms. Dunham has a HELL of a lot of confidence to go out and walk in public.

    • nerdykitten

      Oh HONEY. You need some gays :(

    • librarygrrl64

      No, I agree. She’s adorable, and even though I HATE “jumpers” and “rompers,” had the pants not had pleats and pockets, this would have worked a lot better.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=805505 Steph Foster

      T LO, I’m curious, why does she annoy you? Is there another reason besides her terrible fashion sense? Not a fan of Girls?

    • thecitysleeps

      I love everything about this.  Mostly, her attitude though.  (Yep, as you said there are some iffy parts)

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      She doesn’t annoy me but what DOES annoy me is when the hype machine anoints someone as the second coming of whatever It’s doubly annoying when it so happens that person is 20-something.  I watched the first few episodes of her show & I just don’t see the brilliance and groundbreaking talent that everyone else wants to crow about.  It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t all THAT and a bag of chips.  These people aren’t Mozart ferchrissakes!

      • PinkLemon

         maybe not mozart, but mozart’s kids. CELEBUKIDS. that’s why there’s praise coming from all directions.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      She’s wearing pants! Hooray!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Yes, this look does have its problems, but I will give her credit for making an effort to improve her look. Now that I’ve said something semi-nice, I will, ala Bridesmaids, talk smack about Lena behind her back.

    • JimMcC

      I adore Lena Dunham. I think Girls is the best new comedy since 30 Rock. I think some of her outfits are incredibly delightful. I didn’t even hate the shirt with nothing visible underneath, and that was your worst of a whole year! But this? THIS?! This I loathe.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

      She should try Tadashi Shoji.

    • http://twitter.com/Merneith Merneith

      No. So much no. And I blame Valentino as much as Dunham.

    • http://twitter.com/bkiersten BridgetK

      Whoa. Those are some tats.

      • PinkLemon

         the biggest offense, imo.

        • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

          I know, you’d think with her money she’d pay for some decent work.

    • Stubenville

      Well TLo, I’ll concede that this is a (small) step up from her prior appearance on this site. But Christ on a cracker, that’s one ugly outfit. All it needs to be completely fugtastick is a wacky hat, like Aretha Franklin’s inauguration number. 

      • libraangel

        you gave me a good laugh. Thank you Stubenville!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UQHEKG5EDX4T6NMARUC565TPQ Amy

      Oh Lorenzo…let’s get together for bloody marys and a Lena Dunham bitch session. ANYTIME!! :)

    • barbarienne

      Hmmm. No pants, or bad pants? It is a dilemma.

      At least with no pants, you can say, “Oh, you wacky Hollywood loon! You’re so crazy and eccentric!”

    • http://twitter.com/BattyMamzelle Cate Young

      I love Lena, but this is FUG. It makes her look wide and dowdy, but yes, A for effort.

    • quiltrx

      I don’t know who she is (even after consulting IMDb LOL), so I guess she can’t annoy me.  I think her hair is adorable and this outfit is awful.  I’m built a bit like her (though I bet I’m taller) and you couldn’t get me NEAR this thing.

    • Trisha26

      The top looks like the top of that hideous dress AR put his client in on PR last week – she of the ample bosom who wanted to cover up. I agree this is better than her 2012 disastrous green “shirt,” but it’s just not flattering. Reminds me of all the “less than waif-like” brides who want the sleeveless/bustier/corset look. 

    • Aurumgirl

      I don’t know who this person is and so she cannot annoy me.  But she does look like a fool in this outfit, and it’s not just the pleats in the pants that make that happen.  This is JESUS CHRIST, LENA DUNHAM, part 2.
       

    • Frank Lithium

      Ew.

    • guest2visits

      Doesn’t fit; in the worst way.   It’s a jumpsuit that wouldn’t look right on 99% of the population though. 
      She obviously would look good in a nice pair of lean black pants and those heels; paired with a shimmery blouse or a white tux jacket
      with nothing underneath ( like Rihanna).    Horrendous tattoos make me sad.

    • ccm800

      Mary Lou Rhetton has really let herself go. 

    • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

      As a girl of her size/proportions I find it atrocious what she does to her figure. But hair/makeup/shoes are pretty. So points for trying.

    • Julie Parr

      She does not annoy me at all. I love her. But, she looks like Liza Minnelli in this outfit.

      • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

         Why is that a bad thing?

        • Julie Parr

          a) Liza is 67. Lena is 27. That’s a BIG difference. And b) Liza is not funny or interesting and Lena is a goddess.

          • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

            Oh, I thought you meant Cabaret-era Liza. She looks like just the sort to star in an Otto Preminger film if that were still possible.

    • http://twitter.com/Nanskatoon Nancy Skaggs

      It’s deplorably unattractive. Actually, seeing people with the resources at their fingertips to ward off such disasters still succumb to them gives me hope.

    • neofashionista

      ewww NO

    • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

      Honestly, I think I might prefer the worst look of 2012 over this. 

    • OneRing

      Poor thing; she’s not even a butterface.  Very uncute.  I’m completely with Lorenzo on this topic…

    • KatieKissinger

      Maybe this would be better with some foundations… like at least a bra?  Trying to be optimistic here!

      • libraangel

        You are correct! In every outfit, she never seems to have a bra on – and she of all people needs one!

    • kalisa

      okay but I could not love her hair more. Her face got 85% prettier when she cut it. 

    • lilazander

      Just bad!
