The Heels Lena Dunham Couldn’t Walk In During The Golden Globes Were Louboutins

Can’t walk in heels? We feel you, girl. Especially for a red carpet event so high-profile and fancy, you want to feel confident, beautiful, and traditional — especially if it’s your first time there.

The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Golden Globes

Okay, honest: There wasn’t that much actual dreckitude at this year’s Golden Globes. As much as we love deriding a dress that’s just totally wrong, most celebs got it pretty spot on. So don’t think that everyone in this category is a total failure. It’s just that … they could have done better. It wasn’t…

We were simultaneously madly jealous/intrigued when paparazzi snaps showed Lena Dunham filming scenes of “Girls” with Donald Glover. Season two isn’t back until next week but a lil’ spoiler (after the jump!) at The Hollywood Reporter has some deets on what he’s doing with Hot-Mess Hannah Horvath.

Some how, some way, every starlet in Hollywood drops trou for Terry Richardson. Today, it is Lena Dunham’s turn, inspiring heel envy in us all.

Hey! It’s Another “Girls” Season 2 Trailer!

Let’s see, what does this trailer tell us about the upcoming season of “Girls”? Jessa is still married to Chris O’Dowd, though it seems his parents don’t approve. Hannah is spending more time with her gay ex-boyfriend and potentially fighting with him over dudes. Marnie is still kind of sort of pining after that hot…

We See Chick Flicks: “This Is 40″

Starring Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, Jason Segel, Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow

Simply put, “This Is 40″ left a sour taste in my mouth. I felt like Judd Apatow did what he always does, which is write a plum role for his wife, and the…

Lena Dunham’s Entire Book Proposal Posted Online

Gawker has posted Lena Dunham’s $3.7 million book proposal in full. It’s filled with twee little drawings and twee little fonts and general twee-ness all around. And then, if you scroll three-fourths of the way down (after page 36), there’s a picture of some kind of barnyard animal pooping. No joke. [Gawker]

Lena Dunham Gets Twiggy-fied For Entertainment Weekly

Given Lena Dunham’s fairly recent induction into the Pixie Cut Club, which we presume involved a hazing at the hand of Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, it was only a matter of time before some (fresh! Innovative! Cutting-edge!) photographer and makeup artist decided to give the girl behind “Girls” the full Twiggy. Dare…

15 Brilliantly Ridiculous Quotes From “Girls” Season One (Before Pre-Gaming For Season Two Makes Us Forget)

It’s probably a good thing that Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy yesterday, because for a few days there the trailer for the second season of “Girls” was the big talk of the town. Or at least it seemed that way for a New York minute, and New York minutes are by which all things in life are measured– if…

The Soapbox: Please, Can “Hipster Sexism” Not Be A Thing?

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on NYMag.com’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:
Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which…

Lena Dunham On Her First Time … Voting

“Girls” creator Lena Dunham has come out as a supporter of President Obama by recording this campaign video, in which she talks about her first time … voting, that is. “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody,” she says. “It should be with a great guy.” Dunham goes on to say that voters should cast their ballot…

Bitch Magazine Kills Caitlin Moran Interview Over “Girls”/Race Tweet

If you haven’t fallen in love with Caitlin Moran, there is something wrong with your head. Earlier this year, the Times Of London columnist published a brilliant modern-day feminist screed called How To Be A Woman; I literally can’t keep it on my bookshelf for longer than five minutes before another girl friend wants to borrow it.

The Soapbox: The Conversation I Wish We Were Having Instead About Lena Dunham’s $3.5 Million Book Deal

“Girls” star Lena Dunham evokes a passionate response from bloggers and journalists, especially in women’s media. So I’m a bit nervous about admitting that my thoughts on Dunham’s oeuvre is neutral, even dispassionate. She’s overexposed for a small and fairly meh body of work:  “Tiny Furniture” wasn’t that great and I got bored with “Girls”…

Lena Dunham Tweets Pic Of Herself In Veil, Makes Dumb Joke About Muslims

No, girl, no. Just no. “Girls” creator Lena Dunham tweeted a TwitPic of herself this week, her head wrapped in what looks like a blanket as if it as an Islamic veil, with the caption “I had a real goth/fundamentalist attitude when I woke up from my nap.”

What might happen if the hit HBO show “Girls” was moved from New York to Los Angeles, and starred a cadre of a neurotic dudes, rather than a bunch of self-involved girls? This hilarious parody video, “Boys,” shows us the bleak truth. [YouTube]…

“Zooey Deschanel and I have been e-mailing all morning, like, ‘Can you believe the women that we are getting mentioned in the same breath as?’ Also, we’re planning our Emmy nails … She’s got a lot of nail style. I mean, I have a couple ideas, too … I want to shock the world with…

Lena Dunham Remembers Nora Ephron

“When searching my inbox last night for an e-mail from Nora, to get the specifics of her phrasing, I came upon this sign-off to a short but sweet one thanking me for lunch: “see you somewhere… xox.” Somewhere, it turns out, is everywhere. I see Nora in the home I wouldn’t live in if not…
