It’s amazing how talented some of these Girls girls are at making any article of clothing look terrible as soon as it touches their bodies. We imagine the costume designer on this show drinks a lot to dull the pain.
All very cute items (except for the flats, which are hiddy); all combining to make her look dowdy and awkward. Does anybody really yank their skirt up that high like that? Not that we expect any of them to look like fashion models or anything, but the show consistently goes out of its way to take nice clothes and make them look bad. Sure, a point is probably being made through the costuming about who these girls are. You could spin it out Mad Style-like and see it as a metaphor for how they all tend to go through life fucking things up and making mistakes. That’s all well and good, but we can’t help feeling bad for the designers, who probably lent the show their clothes. This doesn’t exactly embody the breezy, sexy DVF aesthetic.
