Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lena Dunham In Theory by Olivier Theyskens - Glamour Magazine Women Of The Year 2013

Lena Dunham joined a host of stars on the red carpet last night for Glamour’s 23rd annual Women of the Year awards in New York City.

To put it mildly, the ‘Girls’ actress is not your favourite red carpet starlet.

In fact, some of you have asked why I continue to feature her, and that’s because I think one day she will wow us.

While that moment didn’t come last night, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked her custom Theory by Olivier Theyskens multi-layered black-and-silver plaid gown, which nipped in her waist and, despite the sheerness, wasn’t too revealing.

I see a huge improvement in the hair and makeup too. So like I said before… baby steps. I think she’s actually starting to play the game.

Lena Dunham In Reed Krakoff - Vogue CFDA Fashion Fund Dinner

As host of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event, Lena Dunham turned to her favourite designer Reed Krakoff, who provided both her day and evening looks.

Day look: Her first look was a caramel leather short-sleeved Reed Krakoff Resort 2014 dress with a slit neckline, styled with gold bangles. I wish we could see the full length of this look because this is one of her best looks to date. I love the lacquered hair and makeup, especially the kohl-rimmed eyes and that salmon lip colour.

Evening look: After dark the actress was glowing wearing a neon-lime-green Reed Krakoff Resort 2014 strapless dress which also featured a loose-fitted skirt. I love the metallic accessories including Jimmy Choo ‘Elaine’ sandals, which perfected the look. Keeping the strong eye makeup from the day event, her hair was pulled back on this occasion.

I’m shocked to say it, but I really like both looks, however, she needed to hoick up the second look and spanx would’ve greatly improved the overall effect of both.

Baby steps.

Front Row @ Miu Miu

The Palais d’Iena in France played host today to the charming wiles of designer Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu Spring 2014 runway show during Paris Fashion Week—and to a packed front row of starlets who all showed their affection for the brand in head-to-toe Miu Miu looks.

Dianna Agron: Donning a palette of midnight blue and black, the ‘Glee’ girlie was sophisticated in a floaty frock and embellished overcoat—even if the bright teal clutch was a borderline confusing addition.

Michelle Dockery: The ‘Downton Abbey’ darling looked chic in a leather LBD that got kicked up with a sparkling beaded neckline and the pop of a bright fuchsia lip that I loved.

Lena Dunham: In perhaps one of her more classic style exits to date, the ‘Girls’ star covered up in a fire-engine red coat, worn over a simple black dress and amped up with a metallic statement cuff and necklace.

Lena Dunham In Rebecca Minkoff - 4th Annual LA Loves Alex's Lemonade Event

Lena Dunham attended the 4th annual L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade event held at Culver Studios in Culver City, California on Saturday afternoon.

When I saw her in this pretty Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2013 dress in a bright-lemon hue, which was perfect for the event, I was excited to say that I finally liked a Lena Dunham look – from the ankles up, of course, because those Rebecca Minkoff ‘Gio Too’ heels could’ve been better – but then I saw the back of the dress.

As someone who is not a fan of tattoos, I wasn’t excited to discover yet another piece of artwork on the actress’s lower back to go along with the more visible ones on her arm.

While I have tried not to make her artwork part of my critique when it comes to her looks, it was difficult not to on this occasion.

On the plus side, she really does have fun on the red carpet, and doesn’t let anyone or anything hinder that.

You can buy Lena’s Rebecca Minkoff ‘Kirk’ dress from RebeccaMinkoff.com, Neiman Marcus and CUSP.com.

Lena Dunham In Prada - 2013 Emmy Awards

Everything was coming up flowers for Lena Dunham who also took a walk down the red carpet at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Girls’ star already made light of her plunging Prada creation, earlier tweeting that her sister told her it looked like the ‘Delia’s catalogue made a red carpet dress.’

That said, her teal silk-gazaar ball-gown, scattered with a coral-rose print and accented with black trim that tied in the back, may prove to be one of the most debated of the evening.

She accessorized with turquoise satin platform sandals and a red satin clutch, also by Prada, with teal-hued eye shadow picking up the colour of the dress—perhaps unnecessarily so.

What do you make of Lena’s look?
