The Ladies of “Girls” Destroy Another Red Carpet at the Sixth Season Premiere

Posted on February 03, 2017

Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams, Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke attend the Sixth and Final Season of “Girls” held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City.


We’re guessing, by the above shots, that they all took the bus to get there. And then that bus overturned on the way or something.

We should totally be over this question after all this time, but why are you such a mess on the red carpet, Girls girls? We might’ve accepted the argument that you weren’t all getting access to high-end stuff and styling services early in the show’s run (although it would be difficult to do so, given the backgrounds of each one of them). And if you wanted to, you could argue that it was somehow truer to the show’s aesthetic to have them all show up looking a mess, time and time again. We think that’s probably stretching it, but we suppose the argument could be made.

But haven’t both those excuse ships sailed by now? The show won lots of awards, got lots of acclaim and an insane amount of press. They’re not the dirty little hipster girls anymore. This is your victory lap, ladies. More importantly, it’s your springboard to new projects and possibly even new image campaigns for each of you. Now’s the time to really wow us. Now’s the time to shoot for “You Won’t BELIEVE What the Girls Girls Look Like Now!!!!” headlines and clickbait titles.

Then again, we can’t believe what some of you look like here, so we suppose the mission was partially accomplished.


Zosia Mamet in Marc Jacobs

Of all the looks, this is the least objectionable. It’s awkwardly goofy, in that way she seems to prefer, and the color story isn’t exactly fun and bright, but it feels at least a little modern and on point.

Would black tights have been asking for too much here? It feels like they might’ve been a cliche or a little stale somehow.



Alison Williams in Rosie Assoulin

This would be appropriate for an 80-year-old with practically no changes to it. You’d have to lift the shoulders, probably provide a little more arm coverage and do something about that ridiculous belly patch, but for the most part, it’s ready to go for Jane Fonda if she wants it.




Lena Dunham in Todd Oldham

Now that we think about it, maybe they still don’t get too much help with their red carpet style because so many of them have a knack for taking basically good pieces and trashing them all to hell with terrible styling choices.

We’re looking at you here, Lena. We hope we’re not being subtle. Todd Oldham should sue.



Jemima Kirke in Gabriela Hearst

To be fair, we don’t really hate this dress. We find it a bit lacking in the personality her style choices clearly need, though. In other words, it’s okay, but it doesn’t really suit her. It’s not doing much for her and she’s not doing much for it, but it’s not a disaster. And she’s the only one whose hair and makeup choices we actually like. No, really. “Rocker chick” is her wheelhouse. The head styling’s on point. Everything below that? Not so much.
