Lena Dunham in Marc Jacobs at the 2014 Point Honors New York Gala

Posted on April 08, 2014

Darlings we’re jet-lagged and struggling to get our internal clocks calibrated to L.A. time so we can be our normal (not really) perky selves for our signing tonight at the Grove. That’s partially an apology for dragging our feet and partially a setup so you can understand just why T & Lo, both at the same time, in their darkened pre-dawn West Hollywood hotel room muttered “What the hell, Lena Dunham?”

Honestly? It’s not that bad on her. In fact, it’s not really “bad” on her at all. But it just doesn’t look at all like her style and we think her facial expression really tells the tale here. “I got talked into this one.”

It fits her well  – admirably, in fact, since this is a ridiculously tough type of dress for almost any gal to pull off – but we’d never think of putting her in a body-con metallic gown when she seems to love dressing up like a pants-less toddler most of the time. It’s possible we’re just having trouble adjusting to the paradigm shift of Lena Dunham suddenly pulling a Cher on us. We suppose we should applaud both her and Marc Jacobs for the surprise. Personally, we don’t think it really suits her. We like seeing her trying to sashay down the glam side of the street for once, and we encourage her to keep doing so, but we don’t think this is quite the dress for her.

And the shoes are awful with it.
