Let's Talk About Lena Dunham's Emmys Dress

Alas, Hannah Horvath won't be going home with an Emmy. But, can we talk about that dress?
In typical fashion, Lena Dunham's red carpet style was a point of contention at tonight's Emmy Awards. The newly blonde Girls star went for cupcake-chic in a daring Giambattista Valli number that featured a cap-sleeved button-down blouse tucked into a tiered, tutu-esque skirt in every shade of pink imaginable. In short, it's the sartorial equivalent of one of those layered, My Little Pony-colored birthday cakes you see on Pinterest.
Admittedly, we're a bit torn on this one. The concept behind the outfit, however out-there it may be, is unabashedly fabulous and feminine. And, nobody wants to see Lena Dunham in a basic black dress that looks like it came off the rack.
The problem here isn't the frou-frou aesthetic or the rosy ombre train. It's the fit. The blouse is bunched up, and the skirt seems like it's been pulled up just a tad too high. A few alterations would have created a more refined silhouette, and Dunham might have exuded the same self-confidence she had in that canary-yellow Zac Posen gown from the Golden Globes.
Still gotta love the boldness. When this gal thinks pink, she thinks big.
