Yes, we all know that HBO’s “Girls” is wildly popular thanks to its painfully accurate depiction of that time of adulthood between college and becoming a real person. Yes, Lena Dunham has broken down some very narrow Hollywood beauty ideals and paved the way for the non-anorexic world to feel as confident as they should. Behind all the Lena Dunhams and Judd Apatows is Jenn Rogien – the show’s costume designer.
I kind of love where she has taken the fashion in the show. I’m not saying that ill-fitting “shorteralls” are my thing, I’m just saying that we all have days when we wear outfits like the one pictured above that Hannah wore in season 2 episode 5. The color is about as unflattering as it gets, and the fit even more so. Rogien is pretty genius for choosing that painful number, though, because it adds a whole other layer of realism to Dunham’s already hyper-relatable dialogue and story lines. Thanks to her, we can all feel less alone when our romper rides up on our walk to the bodega.
