Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham was at the 2014 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

The ‘Girls’ actress, who is always a bit of a red-carpet wild card, wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture high-low design that loosely paid homage to the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ exhibit with its abbreviated ball-skirt silhouette.

Even though it was strapless and a mullet dress, she wore it quite well.

The black frock, which was festooned with blue and pink floral embroidery, was the main attraction here, as she did little to clutter the effect. Minimal jewels, barely-there makeup and plain black pumps all worked in her favour on this occasion.

For someone I place more often in the ‘miss’ category, this look I actually found to be more of a ‘hit’. Would you agree?

    Not that bad but not good either

    Best she has ever looked.

    i literally just can’t….. she’s got the sass… the great makeup, great hair, safe shoes…its not a flattering cut on her. or maybe if the shoes had a pop of color…

    actually i’d LOVE it if the dress were floor length in the back and mullet length.. and maybe she went crazy and added a headpiece like kate uptown…

    Great choice! She pulls this off + she seems to have fun with it. Go girl!

    I think its one of her best looks, which her shoes were colourful, it would have lifted the look.

    From the waist up this works. From the waist down it’s highlighting her legs which aren’t her best feature. I would like this better if the mullet front went to just below her knees with a small train.

    i think lena is a realy pretty woman, and with the right hair do, make up and dress she can realy nail it.this time i think she succeeded. the one thing i don’t like is that she always stand with her two feet tawards each other and it’s not flattering her at all.

    this dress isn’t for fat girls

      Exactly ! It’s made for smart women with personality, like Lena who nailed it !!!

        +1000, Denise!

    A hit! A hit! A palpable hit! This is a wonderful fashion moment for Dunham. I’m happy for her, and for all us really.

  11. Alina May 6, 2014 at 06:17 #

    No.

  12. Betelgeuze May 6, 2014 at 08:29 #

    I do think it makes sense, somehow. It’s on point with the theme and looks gorgeous, actually. All I’m missing is an updo or pulled-back hair.

  13. Yeliz May 6, 2014 at 09:29 #

    She can’t pull it off in my eyes.

  14. kane May 6, 2014 at 11:32 #

    I actually think she’s done well not only for someone we usually consider a miss.

  15. Marcel May 6, 2014 at 11:56 #

    If there was a category ” Biggest improvement for a normally bad dressed person” she would be the winner.
    I really like it. She looks lovely. I am gladly surprised.

    I am pretty much over the debate whether “big girls should wear more flattering clothes”. She can wear a garbage bag for all I care. But the issue I had with this girl is that this girl has a very lazy style. She has a very nice list of designer who would design/lend dresses for her. But she either chose a dress that simple does not look nice on anybody or got a nice dress but with terrible makeup and/or hair. Put this on Mindy Kaling and she’d give this dress a new life.

    its a pretty dress but not on her. You gotta dress for your body shape and this is not meant for a her shape and legs

    • Nat39 May 6, 2014 at 20:01 #

      It’s def. a miss. The cut is completely wrong for her shape, agreed.

  18. Donna May 6, 2014 at 14:17 #

    She is much improved, but she should not show her legs. And the tattoo needs to go-it’s horrible.

  19. adrian May 6, 2014 at 14:26 #

    it’s a really good silhouette and look for her.

  20. EmmaWoodhouse May 6, 2014 at 15:10 #

    I really dislike her hairstyle, but the dress is OK on her. I just don’t think strapless works well for her. Still not terrible.

  21. dil May 6, 2014 at 18:36 #

    wow! i have almost never seen a dress on her and ished to own it! she looks good!!

  22. Valeria May 7, 2014 at 09:10 #

    Kate Bosworth and Lena Dunham maybe could make better choices for their respective frames.

  23. Markness May 9, 2014 at 02:59 #

    Tell me that’s not a dead ringer for Raf’s Dior Couture look. Seriously, Giambattista Valli has been making expensive rip offs. When will he design something that looks like his own? :(
