Like so many “73 Questions” Vogue videos that came before her, Lena Dunham didn’t hold back anything for her first time up against the onslaught of rapid-fire questioning. She opened up her “poodle-y” L.A. home and spilled the style secrets we’ve always been dying to know. She clarifies the correct amount of pantsuits a woman should own, reveals the story behind her nine tattoos and picks an all-time favorite hair color (it’s neon green, FYI).
She named the pouffy, pink Giambattista Valli gown she wore to the 2014 Emmy Awards her favorite red carpet dress. of all time. But she’s not equally a fan of all her red carpet risks. The trend she most regrets? “I never needed to wear formal shorts,” she says in the video.
She reveals that if she were to hang out with Hillary Clinton, they would first talk about how to rescue girls and women from global oppression. Then discuss another very important topic: how to properly steam and preserve pantsuits. And speaking of, she wants the world to know that a woman should own up to 90 pantsuits, in case you needed to get your collection started.
Throughout the video she also talks about her tattoo collection and describes all nine designs in detail, She has a picture of Ferdinand the bull, Laura Thornhill, the first female skateboarder and an image of Eloise as a tramp stamp.
But out of all her ink, her only regret is getting an illustration of a children’s book. “A drunk guy did it,” she explains. “It’s not great. I should get it covered up.”
Also on her to-do list? Get another tattoo from her Girls co-star Jemima Kirke. She already inked a picture of her dog, Rosie, onto Dunham. But for their next collaboration, Kirke is planning to tattoo the word “nasty” on Dunham’s butt. Clearly, this is what friends are for.
