A Vote for Hillary Clinton Is a Vote for Lena Dunham to Keep Upping the Ante on Her Campaign Clothes

Posted on

If there’s one thing Lena Dunham loves more than a graphic tee, it’s a graphic tee that makes a political statement about her favorite nominee, Hillary Clinton. So what happens when those two great passions collide? A campaign trail fashion moment for the history books, naturally.

When Katy Perry first took the stage with the presidential hopeful, her impressive flag-cape gown complete with turban, Hillary 2016-embossed nails, and POTUS nameplate necklace seemed like an almost impossible act to follow. But, of course, Dunham managed to do it (saying she was inspired by Perry’s example), finding a way to give us not one, but four stumping ensembles that basically scream pure Americana by way of Westchester, N.Y. The most recent of which was a look she debuted yesterday in Iowa, a custom screen-printed tee by MissKK covered is stars and Hillary’s name in all caps.

When the Girls star first joined Clinton in New Hampshire on Friday, things started out simply enough with a look that was grand ol’ flag from head to toe, namely a striped red, white, and blue dress embellished with campaign buttons.

But apparently, Dunham was just warming up because the best looks were definitely still yet to come. At the next campaign stop in Portsmouth, the writer-director broke out an even more elaborate Democratic lewk, going for another knit mock-turtleneck dress. But this time her canvassing apparel was embroidered with stars, stripes, and, of course, Clinton’s name emblazoned across her chest.

The award for most impressive campaign outfit of all time, however, has to go to Lena’s navy suit covered in pearl-colored embellished pinstripes and “Vote 4 Hillary” spelled out in buttons across the back.

Looks like Marco Rubio and his high-heeled boots might need to take it up a notch to compete on a fashion level with Clinton’s campaign squad.
