Lena Dunham On "What Would Hannah Horvath Do?"

UPDATE: So, turns out we were in the minority for liking Lena Dunham's TIME 100 gala outfit the other day. But at least she was more poised than Hannah would've been, right? You gotta give her that. While expounding on her character's many, erm, charming mishaps, Dunham noted that if HH attended the same gala, “It would be a disaster. First, she would get drunk. Then she would say something culturally insensitive to an activist who fights for that culture. Then she would vomit. Then she would sleep with someone who she thought was Miguel, but it wasn’t.” (TIME)

Something to remember, folks. It could always be worse.
Lena Dunham has a complicated relationship with red carpet dressing — the whole perfectly-polished black tie thing isn't really her style, and that's part of her charm. But last night she went out on a limb for the TIME 100 Gala at Lincoln Center with a chic, extremely flattering Saint Laurent dress. Styled with sexy t-strap pumps and a spiked belt, the shape was perfect for her and the glittering chiffon was a great match for her sleeked-down pixie cut and Premier Gem for Forevermark diamond stud earrings.
This is proof of two things: First of all, Lena cleans up real good. Second, the new Saint Laurent ain't all bad. While some might've had a hard time seeing the sweetness of this Marilyn-goes-Vegas dress when paired with Slimane's sometimes heavy-handed grunge styling, on its own with just a touch of edgy accessories, it really shines. A win-win situation if we've ever seen one!
