Lena Dunham In Narciso Rodriguez – SiriusXM’s ‘Howard Stern Birthday Bash’

Lena Dunham In  Narciso Rodriguez - SiriusXM's 'Howard Stern Birthday Bash'

Lena Dunham attended SiriusXM’s ‘Howard Stern Birthday Bash’ held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday (January 31) in New York City.

I was just starting to get mildly excited about the concerted effort Lena was given us when it came to her red carpet looks; then this happened.

OK, so this Narciso Rodriguez 3/4 sleeve black dress isn’t all bad; just a tad boring, especially the way it was styled.

She could’ve elevated the look with some amazing accessories.

Lena Dunham For Vogue US February 2014

Lena Dunham – the New Queen of Comedy, according to American Vogue – lands her first Vogue cover for the publication’s February 2014 issue, which hits newsstands January 28.

Looking slightly perturbed, the actress wears a red-and-white polka-dot Burberry Prorsum shirt and heavy sixties-style eye makeup on the cover, wearing Prada, Rochas, Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana for the rest of the editorial, shot by Annie Leibovitz.

She talks to Vogue about dating, her privacy, on being popular as a child and why ‘Girls’ is different from other shows.

Here are some extracts from her interview. Read more over at Vogue.com.

On ‘Girls’ being different from other shows: “There was a sense that I and many women I knew had been led astray by Hollywood and television depictions of sexuality. Seeing somebody who looks like you having sex on television is a less comfortable experience than seeing somebody who looks like nobody you’ve ever met. Critics said, ‘That guy wouldn’t date that girl!’ It’s like, ‘Have you been out on the street lately?’ Everyone dates everyone, for lots of reasons we can’t understand. Sexuality isn’t a perfect puzzle, like, ‘He has a nice nose and she has a nice nose! She’s got great breasts and he’s got great calves! And so they’re going to live happily ever after in a house that was purchased with their modelling money!’ It’s a complicated thing. I want people ultimately, even if they’re disturbed by certain moments, to feel bolstered and normalized by the sex that’s on the show.”

On being a private person: “No one would describe me as a private person, but I actually really am. It’s important for me to have a lot of time alone, and to have a lot of time in my house by myself. My entire life sort of takes place between me and my dog, my books, and my boyfriend, and my private world. To me, privacy isn’t necessarily equated with secret-keeping. What’s private is my relationship with myself.”

On her young self: “I thought of myself as relatively unpopular. It wasn’t anybody’s fault—I didn’t go to high school with mean kids—but I didn’t feel part of it. . . I didn’t really start to feel like I had friends in a real way until I graduated from college and became engaged with the people I’d be engaged with professionally.”

Lena Dunham In Erdem – ‘Girls’ Season 3 London Premiere

Lena Dunham In Erdem - 'Girls' Season 3 London Premiere

Lena Dunham joined Zosia Mamet for the UK premiere of ‘Girls: Season 3? held at Cineworld Haymarket on Wednesday (January 15) in London.

The actress, whose Zac Posen gown you didn’t favour at the Golden Globes, opted for a pretty Erdem Pre-Fall 2014 lace dress which I will say doesn’t look too bad on her.

In black and white, this pretty piece radiates modern elegance, with a V-neckline preferred over the look book’s stuffy turtleneck.

Black Louboutin slingbacks and – undeterred by her makeup malfunction at the Globes – fuchsia-pink lippie completed her look.

Lena Dunham In Zac Posen – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

All-around it-girl Lena Dunham attended Sunday’s 2014 Golden Globe Awards (January 12) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Girls’ star and nominee graced the red carpet in a canary yellow frock by Zac Posen.

Lena has already donned the sunny hue on the red carpet before, but this design, complete with a bustier sweetheart neckline and mermaid silhouette was both bold and curve-enhancing on the starlette.

To complement the beautiful shade of the dress, the nominee opted for classic red nails, side-swept waves and a coral lip. To top it all off, a single strand of diamonds from Harry Winston draped around Lena’s neck was a much-loved added dose of glamour.

Lena Dunham In Rochas – ‘Girls’ Season Three Premiere

Lena Dunham In Rochas - 'Girls' Season Three Premiere

Lena Dunham attended the season three premiere of ‘Girls’ held at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

Towards the end of last year, it was apparent that Lena was making a concerted effort when it came to her red carpet looks, and I have the feeling that has continued into 2014.

The funny gal wore a Rochas Spring 2014 silver crystal-embroidered and bonded-silk sleeveless gown styled with complementary sparkling pumps.

Opting to wear the look sans jewels, she slicked back her tresses, opting for smoky mocha eyes and a glossy lip.

Is Lena still on the right track, or are you waiting for her awards-season frocks to judge if she has really turned a corner style-wise?
