Lena Dunham Got Naked On SNL & Other Highlights

Lena Dunham hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live. And, even though Dunham's now a household name, hosting the venerable comedy show has come to be something of a celebrity rite of passage. But, it should come as no surprise that she absolutely nailed it.
The SNL cast has a history of including at least one sketch that pokes fun at its host. So, in this case, that meant tackling the whole nudity thing on Girls. But, there were other non-Girls moments that rocked, too. Ahead, the three best parts of Dunham's SNL debut that had us slow clapping from the couch.

Opening Monologue
You know how they say you can tell if you'll like a book by reading just the first few pages? Well, that's kind of how we enter into an episode of SNL. If the opening monologue is killer, we know to expect great things. Naturally, Dunham's monologue was amazing.
Ooh, Child
If nothing else, this skit offers solidarity for those who simply cannot stand using a GPS.

Yep, she got naked and addressed Girls in the same sketch. We're especially loving this interpretation of Adam.
