Lena Dunham Gets Our Style Standing Ovation

Posted on

Anthony Behar/Sipa

From her show, Girls, to her hilarious Twitter feed, Lena Dunham makes it so easy for us to like her. Her style, on the other hand, has been a bit more challenging.

So when we spotted her in this great little Reed Krakoff dress at the Writers’ Guild Awards Sunday night (where she picked up a Best New Series trophy), we figured we’d send her our internet approval in hopes that this is the beginning of a trend.

The reason her Reed Krakoff look (worn with shoes by the designer and Fred Leighton jewelry) works so well for Dunham is that it’s true to the quirkier styles she prefers without being purposefully unflattering (something she admits to doing on the Girls set).

And though she’s open about wearing whatever designer clothing she gets sent, this outfit looks made for her: it fits well, highlights her face and — best of all — she appears comfortable in it, no shoe removal required. And that’s something we can stand up and cheer for.

Tell us: Do you like Dunham’s look?
