Lena Dunham in Erdem at the “Girls” Season 3 UK Premiere

Posted on January 16, 2014

We were going to say “This is pretty good for her,” but this is just pretty good all around, right?



Lena Dunham attends the UK premiere of “Girls: Season 3” at Cineworld Haymarket in London, England in an Erdem lace dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes.

Erdem Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

It’s not our favorite dress in the world but it manages the trick of being somewhat true to her style while also being chic and stylish. Vogue must be rubbing off on her. Or maybe this is the kind of dress that even she can’t screw up. Either way, she looks good. We’d have picked different shoes, but we can live with these.

Gosh, this post is simply drowning in faint praise and backhanded compliments, isn’t it?

    gah that pose kills me

    • gabbilevy

      She needs lessons, stat.

    • newleaf1

      She looks like she constantly has to pee.

    • TinaBelchersawkwardmoan

      Yep. Cutest she’s ever looked, but quit doing that damn thing with your feet, and stand up STRAIGHT.

      • TheDivineMissAnn

        This! That dress she wore at the Golden Globes would have looked 100x better if she had pulled her shoulders back and stood up straight!

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I have no issues with the dress or the shoes, because this is pretty good. But THE FEET!! Stop it, stop it! You’re a grown woman, stop standing like a 5 year old.

      • AmeliaEve

        She is posing like a kewpie doll. Ugh.

    • BeeBeauNYC

      Drives me nuts.

  • moppet

    See, having not seen any of Girls, the most I know about Lena Dunham is what I read here. So I think she looks darn cute, full stop! But that toesie-woesies posing has got. to. go.

    • MoHub

      I was not aware that pigeon-toed was the seventh basic ballet position.

  • SuzyQuzey

    It’s really the best I’ve ever seen her look.

    • Rhonda Shore

      It is and that lipstick color is just perfect on her. SHe looks full on pretty!!!

    • Kate Andrews

      Her posture looks better too!

    • Trent

      Seriously. Is the Apocalypse nigh? This is an absolute personal best (and so soon after the Globes debacle!). Pigeon-toed pose aside, she looks great!

    • kim bunchalastnames

      and her hair. it looks like someone ELSE cut it. it’s nicely styled, and not a bobby pin in sight!

      • Carrps

        The hair is the best I’ve ever seen it!

    • Jenna Marie

      I agree! The dress is so flattering and despite her bad posing, she looks comfortable. I like it.

  • PlethoraofBooks

    It’s quite possibly my favorite look from her, EVER. But yes, it’s nothing ground breaking, or GIRL, that your dress and no one else’s. Pretty standard really. But a HUGE improvement over the norm.

    • I wouldn’t mind if that was MY dress also… Someone want to buy it for me?

  • Diego!

    Well well well.. it looks as if Anne Wintour’s advices have paid off! She looks great! I love how this dress looks on her. Hair and make up are great too. What is striking me a chord (?) is her tattoo… I hate it. And it’s taking attention away from a gorgeous dress she is wearing. Honey, erase it.

    • uprightcitizen

      Yeah, I agree. I love tattoos on men, but then when we get dressed up, they’re always hidden (Mike Tyson excepted). If we are wearing something sleeveless, then we’re already going for something between casual and tough guy. But women’s dressy clothes have a lot of exposed flesh and if there are tattoos on that flesh, it can take a pretty chic look to trailer town fast, IMHO. Btw, as to your ? … striking a chord is usually a good thing. Maybe you meant “putting me off”?

      • Diego!

        Hahaha I didn’t quite get that idiom (English is not my native language) Thanks a lot for the explanation!

      • kimzy22

        Totally agree about the tattoo…..and she always wears sleeveless dresses. Ruins the look in my opinion! Everything else looks good though!

    • Evan

      I doubt Anna Wintour did anything to help. She’s overrated. Grace Coddington is the brains behind it all. You’ll see what I mean if you watch The September Issue.

  • Rand Ortega

    There! Was that so hard, Lena?
    (But stop with the silly poses. Seriously. Stop.)

  • E2_Remote

    White lace will always remind me of my babcia’s parlor curtains, but get on with your bad self Lena Dunham, you actually look good for once. Kudos.

  • Introspective

    So much of a personal best my heads about to implode…

  • In_Stitches

    She looks beautiful. The dress fits and flatters, make-up and hair suit the look and are well done…solid effort.

  • Spreecord

    She needs to learn how to stand up straight, and close her damn mouth.

  • natty_bat

    Me: Say, that does look pretty good… why do you stand like that all the G-D time?!?!?

    • uprightcitizen

      My Aunt Janet used to always stand that way in photos, but then she was about an inch taller than her husband and was always trying to hide that fact. I don’t think Dunham is doing it for the same reason. It’s something the quirky girls do, no? Like Deschanel?

  • MK03

    I was going to say that losing the neck of the dress makes it a lot less interesting, but it was the right choice here. Plus, I’m not sure anyone but a model can pull it off.

  • amanda siegelson

    one: the dress looks a thousand times better without that stupid turtle neck shirt look – so yay you, lena for taking a good dress and making it look even better.
    two: isn’t it amazing how a decent dress makes her look like a normal-sized person – not bigger than she actually is? learn from this, lena – we’re rooting for you!
    three: hair is great!
    four: stand up fucking straight, girl! stop fucking around on the red carpet – it isn’t a good look on you, ever.

  • Scimommy

    Wow. I feel like this deserves so much more than faint praise. Like, a baby WERQ, maybe? A personal best? An attagirl? She looks fantastic while still looking like herself, which, judging by her past “efforts”, is a nearly insurmountable task.

    • Sartorial_She

      ITA. Also: this dress is infinitely more flattering than the one she wore to the Golden Globes.

      • kimmeister

        So is her whole head.

    • jtabz

      I second the “attagirl.”

    • colleenjanel

      I can get behind an attagirl or personal best. I think baby WERQ is reserved for the youngster/tween/teen set (Kiernan Shipka, Quvenzhane Wallis, Elle Fanning). It’s definitely not a fully matured WERQ.

      • Scimommy

        Of course, you’re totally right regarding the terminology (and just because Lena sometimes dresses like a toddler is not reason enough for ‘baby WERQ’ to apply to her).

  • colleenjanel

    If we had known that all it would take is one Vogue spread, I thin we would have all chipped in long ago to make that happen. God bless child … you CAN look pretty and polished! Personal best! I’ve got a slight issue with that dress being deployed in January, but I’ll let that slide.

    • teensmom99

      It took 2 Vogue spreads. Plum Sykes interviewed her as a teen. Guess I can’t post a link here.

      • colleenjanel

        But that was an interview, not a fashion spread, right?

        • teensmom99

          Apparently pictures were taken but only jemima made th final cut.

          • colleenjanel

            Okay, then I guess my comment stands. 😉

      • formerlyAnon

        Posts with links go into moderation and appear eventually. Almost always within a few hours.

  • teensmom99

    The haircut looks good. But (showing my age, I know), even something that looks okay is ruined by the tats, imho.

    • BayTampaBay

      See my comment below

  • This is very good for her. And would make a most excellent Easter dress for me.

  • Judy_S

    She looks pretty. The hair and makeup are on point and the dress is not distracting or interfering. Now just untwist your ankles…

  • RCH

    Sorry, but her bad posture, open mouth and what I call an “Anita la huerfanita” type of haircut does not help me remove her from my irrational hate list. I just can’t with her.

    • Leah Elzinga

      I was literally going to have “hair” and “ankles” as my points but you beat me to it. That hair is BRUTAL. It’s what happens when you see a chic little bob in a magazine and try to replicate it by going to Supercuts. And her bullshit posing makes me FURIOUS. It’s SO affected. I can’t even.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah, but I maintain the hair is styled LIGHT YEARS better than it’s been in several recent appearances, so I count it as an improvement.

  • The cut of this dress is doing good things for her arms/shoulders, which has always been a problem area for her.

  • ailujailuj

    “Gosh, this post is simply drowning in faint praise and backhanded compliments, isn’t it?”
    I think you’re just experiencing a little PTSD from the yellow bomb.

  • clatie

    I love this on her. LOVE.

  • Chickadeep

    Jesus, take the wheel—I like Lena Dunham’s whole outfit. I even like the shoes. I’m barely noticing the slouch. It’s a Red Carpet Miracle!

  • Anna

    Definitely a promotion from “pretty good for her” to “pretty good.” Posing is tragic, as usual, but that’s her schtick I guess.

  • amaranth16

    Her goddamn posture.

  • queeniethebold

    STOP with the hunched shoulders. STOP STOP STOP with the “OMG i think i have to pee” leg stance. Heinous.

    The dress is … OK.

    i just find it hard to get past the horrendous posture and the “little girl” posing.

  • az67

    She looks great.

  • Laura Renee

    Holy shit! This is the best I’ve seen her look, especially in that first picture. Though she still needs lessons on how to stand (and that pigeon-toed thing is getting really tiresome).

  • Adrianna Grężak

    With that make up and hair, she looks like the 27 year old WOMAN that she is!

  • KateMaryC

    She’s found her lip color, that’s for sure.

  • tallgirl1204

    Hallelujah– she still has the Vogue hair and makeup on! Dress shape is good on her, but I’m not a fan of the daisy lace.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    It’s interesting and a little coy, which seems to be what she likes. I also really like her hair and make-up here.

    You guys! Our little Girls are growing up!

  • Sarah

    Dress looks nice on her, no doubt, but the more I stare at it, the more I’m bothered by the extra whiteness that applique of lace is doing around the neckline. I see the need to break up the black bars with the lace, but they could have split it in half and matched the pattern in the dress with the applique, instead of tacking it on.

  • When you compare this to the Yellow Mermaid Monstrosity.. the awesomeness of this is on a high level.

    Not as high as the sparkly thingy she wore which I loved on her – you know, if that sparkly thing was the shade of her lipstick here, that would have beeb a werq from me.

    That pink is amazing with the not her skin tone of the face makeup and I am imagining how much more awesome it would be with her body skin tone. 🙂

  • Imasewsure

    Dress is cute… shoes are boring and sorry to say but this girl either needs to stop wearing lipstick or bleach her teeth… “natural” teeth are fine but not if you are constantly drawing attention to them with bright red lipstick! Still this is cute and looks comfy too

  • She actually does “Cathy Cambridge” drag *really* well. Remember seeing her in a gorgeous trench outside of a fashion show one time and thought “Prim Brit” really WORKS on her, of all things. Works with the hair, even. More stuff like this!

  • Like. And..I like her eyes. They are soulful, pretty.

  • msdamselfly

    At last she is dressing with dignity! She looks pretty.

  • Paula Pertile

    It looks like one of those plastic tablecloths. But she does look good.

  • BayTampaBay

    IMHO the dress clashes with the tattoo on her arm. I think she looks awful.

    • Sarah

      The tattoo on her arm is not something she can change. If I had to dress to “match” my tattoos, I would have a very limited wardrobe, crossing between a biker and a naturalist. One could argue that whatever one chooses to sport in ink matches THEM, and the clothes are what they wear on top of that, just like anyone else in the world.

      • demidaemon

        I do wonder exactly what that would look like, just out of curiosity.

        • Sarah

          Woodland creatures on the back, slogans promoting hard livin’ and rock’n’roll lifestyle on arms 😉

    • MilaXX

      I actually think that having everything else right draws your eye away from the tats, however if you are the sort who dislikes tats in general mileage may vary

    • formerlyAnon

      That clash is one of the reasons (not being able to afford good quality and not having a clue what will be meaningful to you later in life – like at 23) I wish more kids waited longer to get their first tattoos, especially the ones that are hard to cover. But I know that’s like wishing more kids waited longer to have their first sexual experiences – easy for us old people to say!

      I love some tattoos, I’m not a huge fan of hers. But presumably she is. I do find it interesting (and in character) that unlike some stars, she doesn’t cover them with body makeup for some appearances, they are always out there.

      In the end it’s an appearance management issue and she’s lucky to be able to make her own call. My son has a job that requires the employees to cover their tattoos in any way that works – because of the client base they work with, the most ridiculous, incongruous covering is deemed better than visible tattoos. (Seriously, one kid was sent out to do a presentation with cut up tube socks covering his forearms. I imagine he looked like he had some messy cream applied to a bad flareup of psoriasis or something.)

      • Sarah

        Even my fellow, who has a lot of work, and also looks like a pirate (long black hair and beard, ring in nose, etc.) was worried that his mom would be upset when he got a tattoo on his hand. Showing is definitely different than having the option to not! The way you pointed out that Lena shows hers despite conventions actually makes me think of her more fondly because I believe that you shouldn’t have to be ashamed of the choices you made (semi)permanently. Tube sock arms seems particularly ludicrous!

  • Imasewsure

    I would have loved to see this girlie dress paired with some slightly “manly” hipster shoes instead but that’s just me…
    too much girlie in one place but no complaints… it’s cute

  • Garcia Loca

    While I might have minor quibbles with this element or that element, on the whole — this is the best I’ve seen her look in photos.

  • JimMcC

    Between this and what Zosia and Allison wore to the Globes, we’re at almost a complete round of AttaGIRLS. You’re up, Jemima. Dazzle us in well deployed black and white.

  • boweryboy

    I think it’s a dress that not even Lena could fuck up. I don’t even mind the shoes. A personal best for her.

  • Tatiana Luján

    This is the best I’ve seen her. The dress looks chic and sweet on her.

  • formerlyAnon

    Much improved on all fronts: dress, hair and posture.

    Maybe she respects/fears the Brits more than her home celebrity press corps?

    • demidaemon

      They do tend to be tougher, I think, especially on American celebs.

      • Not just on the Americans. The British press is brutal on celebrities generally, and it takes very little to be considered a celebrity here!

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    Very nice. But yeah, she really needs to learn how to stand up straight.

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    She needs debutante training. Her posture is horrific. The dress is cute though.

    • demidaemon

      Maybe she should talk more to Allison Williams, then.

  • MzzPants

    The dress fits well. That’s a good start. I wonder what a slender black belt would have looked like. At least personality is part of the package with her.

  • marlie

    She looks pretty darn cute. Attagirl, Lena!

  • MaggieMae

    Hair + make-up = very good. Dress is definitely flattering! Progress, BKs, progress. There is hope!

  • alyce1213

    ATTAGIRL, I say! Much, much better, really. The dress is lovely, fits well, and the silhouette is easy and very flattering. She looks more comfortable than she usually does (hands in pockets helps), but she’s doing that ding-toe thing — is that awkwardness or coyness? Also, her tattoos are so bad.
    Now stand up straight (this is better, but not quite there).

  • Sam Erin

    Looks like she over did it on the iced tea and needs to find a restroom, like now.
    Ridiculous pose, terrible shoes, great dress.

  • Elana Bryan

    Why does she always point her toes like that? She looks good though.

  • Honestly, low bar & all, but personal best. She’s certainly found her silhouette here.

  • mjude

    i kinda like it

  • MilaXX

    Love this look on her. Hair looks good, makeup looks spectacular! Shoes aren’t great, but they aren’t fighting the dress. It even looks like she’s wearing a decent bra. My only minor quibble is she needs to learn how to stand.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      The knock-kneed pose needs to go, but otherwise Lena did very well with this look.

  • MsC

    All in all, not bad. I wish she had worn her hair like this for the Golden Globes. It looks great.

  • lobsterlen

    Her tattoo even looks good with this dress. However …. the pose is making me want to scream. When will the coquettish knocked knee pigeon toe pose die? I don’t get why these highly successful women who have made millions of dollars writing and performing etc stand there like 4 year old girls.

  • KayeBlue

    She really needs to quit smoking. Health effects first, but secondly, it’s ruining her skin, hair, and especially her teeth. I was looking at the second picture wondering why, despite her looking lovely in this chic dress with snappy lipstick, her face seems odd- I remembered she’s a heavy smoker, and her skin is dull and teeth are yellow because of it. Love this look, wish she looked like she was enjoying it!

    • Liz Lake

      I beg you to look at the third picture. She looks pretty happy. And pretty. I absolutely believe she would probably be healthier if she quit smoking, and while that probably is contributing to her teeth but as for skin and hair…. I’m an active non-smoker pescatarian who has a similar complexion to Miss Dunham, I think her skin is just genetics, and I actually don’t think it looks bad. She may just be wearing more minimal makeup other than on her eyes and lips. Her hair looks good too.

      • KayeBlue

        The third picture’s farther away than the second. You can believe what you like about her skin, but nothing makes a person’s teeth yellow like smoking does.

        • Liz Lake

          Like I said I am with you on the teeth. I am sure that is exactly what is going on with those chompers. And if you’re not going to stop smelling like an ashtray…. Whiten, whiten, whiten! Especially when wearing a crisp white and black number and that great shade of lipstick. I just meant cut her hair and complexion a break.
          BTW has she recently become a much heavier smoker!? Because other pictures I’ve seen of her before the Golden Globes and this were not THAT bad where her teeth were concerned, maybe I was just seeing old pictures or post-whitening treatment pictures. It doesn’t really matter.

  • Liz Lake

    Her posing is aweful… But is it just me…. Or is she standing up a little straighter? I think she knows she is looking pretty darn good. Her hair looks good and her her makeup is solid. Did she hire a stylist after the world of fashion dragged her through the mud for her dress at the Golden Globes? Anyway, I say “Onward and upward, Lena!”.

  • GeoDiva

    Personal best.

  • Joanna

    She needs to get her hands out of her pockets, because that is completely obscuring what would probably be a perfectly good silhouette for her. Otherwise, GIRL, that IS your neckline!!!

  • Kelly

    I’m just so glad that she actually combed her hair that I’m totally going to give her a pass on the goofy posing and vote her IN. (Yeah, I know it isn’t an in-or-out post, but I’m doing it anyway)

  • MoHub

    Ya know, I really don’t mind tattoos if they’re beautiful and artistic. (Reference Danielle on American Pickers.) However, Lena’s arm decoration just looks as if someone punched her hard and left a humongous bruise.

    • I think her tattoo is beautiful and artistic, but it is too detailed to photograph well at a distance, it all blurs into blah.

      • formerlyAnon

        I’d agree it is very detailed and one can’t appreciate it at a distance. One reason why I’m not a fan of it. I like bolder, more geometric designs. But she’s entitled to love it whatever I think!

        • Carrps

          Yeah, reminds me of some art that was done on one of the Santa Monica freeeway walls. Way too delicate to be seen from a distance (and at any speed greater than 30 mph). If you can’t see the details without getting within a foot or two, it does just look like bruising. Or scribble.

    • demidaemon

      I love Danielle on American Pickers!

  • uprightcitizen

    Wow. She looks like she lost 25 pounds since Sunday. Amazing what wearing things that are fitted and cut right for you can do. She looked so tortured at the a Golden a Globes, and so comfortable and relaxed here. To be fair, she said on the GG red carpet that someone told her to pose with her body in the shape of an “S” in the yellow mermaid gown, and she was desperately trying to heed that all night. She should cut that person out if her life.

    • alyce1213

      Rumor has it that is was the very designer himself, Zac Posen, who was also used to be her babysitter. Can’t make this stuff up.

      • uprightcitizen

        That’s amazing (the babysitter part). As to the posing, I wonder if he’s rethinking that now that he’s see the pics from the other night.

  • SewingSiren

    Perfect Summer dress for a London premiere.

    • formerlyAnon

      In January.

  • bluefish

    Finally! She looks great.

  • Sabrina Stern

    Her head looks awesome

  • sagecreek

    Remarkably cute, esp for her!

    She still needs to stand up straight, but this is a WERQ for her.

  • Nimith

    It looks like chemical lace but this is a MAJOR improvement that is helped immensely by the absence of the absurd poses and expressions that she’s so fond of.

  • Kent Roby

    A “best” for her, for sure; the fit is great, and the dress even seems to somewhat complement her tattoos instead of fighting with them.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Obviously this is an improvement for her. I would be trepidatious with my compliments as well, she’s got plenty of time to screw it up again.

  • Danielle


  • Janet B

    I wish she looked more comfortable.

    My teen thinks not having tattoos will soon be abnormal among her friends. I’m not a fan, but I’m admittedly old fashioned about them and probably won’t change.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like them, at least many of them. But (as I’ve said here before) I nearly had a nervous breakdown and took close to two weeks to decide on the tiles for my kitchen back splash. Pretty-close-to-permanent body art is not something I’m emotionally equipped to grapple with. I view those who go for it with a certain admiration/horror at their ability to commit – and that hasn’t changed in the decades over which it has become more and more ubiquitous.

      • There is a lot of very very bad work out there! I like mine, but easily 80% of the tattoos I see on the street are dreadful. Of the 3 I have had, the third was a cover-up of the first, which was a poorly conceived notion, and the next one I plan to have is an improvement to the second. I see them as works in progress!

        • Shawn EH

          I think it really will become ever more normal and accepted; Lena’s just ahead of the curve with her very big ones she constantly puts on display because she likes strapless and sleeveless gowns.

  • Joyce VG

    I want her hairstyle.

  • veronicafish

    Enough with the “Who? Me?” pose/schtick.

  • MondoWasRobbed

    She looks really good (except for the cutesy-wootsey pose, of course). I really like the makeup.

  • Sally Spannagle

    That neckline and those straps are a good look for her. The half open mouth thing, however, does not.

  • frannyprof

    I love this look on her, right down to the lipstick. Now, will *someone* please teach this girl how to walk/pose on the RC, and her life in general?!

  • OldPandaDayz

    Out of her recent looks this is by far the best! I agree its not perfect, but it seems to suit her and the hair and makeup are huge step up imho.

  • susan6

    She really lacks physical grace (enroll in dance class….STAT!) but that is a great dress.

  • Little_Olive

    Lena: yo DO look good if you want to. Accept it.

  • PeggyOC

    Yes, the pose is terrible, but this is top two of the best she’s ever looked, so let’s pass out the positive reinforcement and hope she moves in this direction. Baby steps.

  • H2olovngrl


  • Jacqueline Wessel

    She looks pretty good here. That dress even looks good with her tattoos, or perhaps her tattoos even look good with that dress.

  • Lulu

    I must be losing it, I really don’t like this dress. She looks like she’s wearing a tablecloth.

  • SorayaS

    Look, I don’t like it and her posing is giving me a twitch but I’ve got to say she looks great above the neck. And I never say that about Lena Dunham.

  • Gatto Nero

    One of the best looks I’ve ever seen on her, head to toe.
    Now if she would only learn how to stand.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Is she pigeon-toed? Not a joke, I’m asking. Because, if so, pointed toe pumps are NOT her friend.

  • nannypoo

    It’s nice. She looks pretty good. She’d look better IMHO without that tattoo.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Yes, but neither the dress nor the shoes go with her massive tattoos. No problem with tattoos. They just don’t match this little wee daisy dress. Not that she cares what I think.

  • Melissa Joulwan


  • Julie Parr

    Personal best on the red carpet for LD.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Wish she wouldn’t stand pigeon-toed like that. She looks like a little, well… um… girl.

  • LaSylphide

    I’d like it a lot more without the pigeon toes, but otherwise, not bad.

  • Love the dress. It’s lovely. I want it! But I wish she’d stop with the coy red carpet poses. Pointed toes, darling…pointed toes. Use your hipster sense of irony and pretend you’re like your grandmother in family photos from the 80’s.

  • Joanne Abrams

    like the makeup and the hair

  • snarkykitten

    If she got her hands out of her pockets and stopped with that childish, knock-kneed pose, she’d look awesome.

  • suzq

    Love it, love it, love it, love it. Oh yeah, her posture is awful, but she’s never looked better.

    And she knows it, too.

  • Susan Velazquez

    I feel so proud. Our little Lena is growing up and finally moving away from terribly fitted strapless gowns. *wipes tear*

  • ms_kat

    Hair and lip look good. I really like that dress.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Cute!! I kind of want one, even though I never wear white.

  • Dreamwr8tr

    Finally, a dress which can’t be screwed up by her atrocious, sheepish-little-girl posture. She needs some kind of blush/cheek color, because that lipstick is focus-pulling.

  • elzatelzabelz

    She could still stand up, but the hair, make-up, dress, are all finally working together. That whole crappy red carpet styling-I don’t care what I wear thing WAS a schtick. GAH. So maddening.

  • quiltrx

    That’s a really cute dress! And her hair and face look nice–and she looks like she enjoys what she’s wearing. You’re going the right direction, dear.

  • Courtney

    It’s amazing how much better a dress looks when it actually fits its wearer.

    • demidaemon

      I KNOW.

    My only wish is that she had worn the undershirt with the dress. I think it really makes the look.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Not a bobby pin in sight. Personal best.

  • DesertDweller79

    I like it! She looks cute. Really great dress on her.

  • ThesisMonkey

    girl, you look good. was that so hard?

    • Closet Crisis

      You took the words right outta my mouth.

    It’s astonishing what wearing a lip colour that suits your skin tone can do for you. Miss Lena should be running to the store to snatch up every blue-based pink she can possibly find, because this lip colour is absolutely singing on her. (Compare this with the orange lip she wore at the Globes, which clashed horrendously with the pink in her complexion; it may have been right for the dress, maybe, sort of, but it was DEFINITELY not right for her).

    A very good dress for Lena, she needs 3 more in different shades.
    But I am done with the shoes with a mind of their own, headed off in opposite directions.

  • bellafigura1

    And her face looks slightly more relaxed. Keep it up, Lena.

  • Is it just me or is the lace in this dress completely different from the lookbook one? It looks gorgeous on the model, and as much as I actually love Lena, this dress (or the print) looks fairly generic especially for an event.

  • Austen Jane

    See? Hair better than at the Golder Globes. What is up with that?

  • alliekat9090

    It confuses me that she is such a staunch liberated woman but insists on striking that “I’m a cute widdle girl” pose.That said, this is the best I have ever seen her look.

    • Well she isn’t the only one.. *looks around for backup*

  • decormaven

    Apologies for the cynical, but she’s known how to dress all along. No one gets to her position in the industry without having a pretty good idea of what works. A lot of publicity has been generated due to her “bad” choices, and now there will be more accredited to her “good” choices. Was it an epiphany? I think not. However, in the spirit of focusing on the look in question, it is pleasing. May the trend continue.

  • Shawn EH

    Makeup good, hair good, dress pretty and flattering in the way we know (from her GG dress) she wants to look; now if only she can stop posing like a 3-year old, we’ll be getting somewhere!

  • Yeah, looking pretty good!
    Not sure if the right belt would have destroyed this look or improved on it.
    Can’t help but notice that the runway version (press version?) is made from a prettier lace.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    There was a picture of her from the recent upfronts where she was wearing jeans and a top – and looked much happier and thinner than she usually does at formal events. She really just needs a friend to go shopping with to find something that works for her, as this dress does.

  • halo323

    I adore the shoes shown with this dress on the model! Wish she had just grabbed the whole look (minus the turtleneck).

  • EEKstl

    Now WHY OH WHY couldn’t she have looked this polished at the Globes? Like the dress, but it’s the hair and makeup that are really working here.

  • Akemi

    It looks good on her. She looks great. The first thing I thought when I saw the dress was “90’s Drew Barrymore”, but it’s still cute.
    I know she is all like, “unique” and “the voice of a generation” or what the fuck-ever, but she does know that cameras are pointed at her, right? She represents the generation that fucking made selfies a thing; can we pull it together for just a minute? Stand up straight for the cameras, PLEASE.

  • Suse

    Why must she always strike that annoying pigeon-toed pose? Other than that, she looks a thousand times better than she did at the GGAs.

  • Katherine Leay

    she looks good, finally! is a good shape for her.
