I’m really not sure which is sadder, darlings: the fact that Girls stars Lena Dunham and Zosia Mamet clearly tried to hard to look sleek and chic at yesterday’s Emmy’s…or that they both failed so miserably?
Lena tried to sass up her otherwise boyish and boring new pixie cut with a ton of smokey shadow, and shockingly, she looks rather sexy. From the neck up, that is. Shoulder blades and below she seems to be dressed for a funeral-themed prom. If this dress were short and bouncey, a la Taylor Swift’s similar red lace frock, Lena would have walked away a winner–at least in the fashion category.
Zosia’s look might also have been saved had she hacked off this dress at the awkward cut-outs and taken down her hair. She looks almost as uncomfortable posing on the red carpet as I am looking at these photos…XOXO.
