HBO Girls: Lena Dunham’s Fashion Advice From Dad

LenaDunhamDonaldGlover HBO Girls: Lena Dunhams Fashion Advice From Dad

As promised yesterday, I’m doing some in-between-seasons, catch up posts on HBO’s Girls, a series I’ve written about as it relates to fashion themes. The basic working theory is the series operates in a post-fashion-obsessed, more reality-based tv world, in which characters no longer have perfectly put together wardrobes, but rather dress is a way that reveals the good, the bad and the ugly of who they are.

The intriguing thing about writer Lena Dunham is that she is no stranger to fashion. In her Twitter, she mentions a discussion with her parents about jeggings and in another post expresses shock that Jil Sander’s hair is blonde. And then she also seems to have some connection with Isaac Mizrahi as evidenced by an image (see that after the flip) of her and him taken when she was actually girl aged.

My fave Tweet as it relates to fashion is one she described as fashion advice she received on the phone from her Dad. She didn’t post the image shown above (it’s from a season two) but it sort of goes with what he said:

“Do not wear those dumb baby clothes. What do you even call a skirt that is shorts!? A skrount? Everybody drop your hemlines please! But still dress in a way that is shapely. Dress like you’re in charge of your shit then open your mouth and blow everybody’s mind because you are a punk and you say crazy stuff.”

Funny! And it very much reminds me of the wardrobe lecture she received from the character Ray upon arrival on the first day of her job in season one. So now we know where a lot of her inner voices come from!

Isaac Mizrahi Dishes About Wedding On Wendy Williams Show

05 January 2012, 17.55 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

Isaac Mizrahi appeared yesterday on Wendy Williams and dished on his November wedding. Normally when someone talks wedding details, in my head I’m like, please stop talking no one cares, but there is something still endearing about hearing a gay person go on about their big day, especially since it can now be done officially in New York.

Coincidentally Mizrahi was married by a justice of the peace on November 30th, same day and method as Wendy, who has long been an advocate of taking the cheap, civil ceremony route, rather than dumping thousands on a big party instead of a down payment or whatnot. And I swear I have so far managed one New Year’s resolution and that is to attend one of Wendy’s shows–a long time major friend in my head.

Tim Gunn Locks And Unloads On Wintour & Mizrahi

TimGunn Tim Gunn Locks And Unloads On Wintour & Mizrahi

Tim Gunn’s book, “Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons For Making It Work,” is getting lots of attention for his call-outs on Anna Wintour and Isaac Mizrahi, among others. On La Diabla, Gunn says, “It’s insane that people don’t call her out on the things she does. Is it fear? I was certainly afraid of her. When her office called me, I thought I’d have to go into the witness protection program.” So not shocked by that, but the comments on Mizrahi– “Oh, please, I was so kind to him. I mean, I wouldn’t have the words to describe some of the more abhorrent behavior. He really is a terrible, terrible, terrible person”–were a surprise since a friend of mine dated Mizrahi for a minute and never mentioned any nightmarish behavior. He even goes in on his Mom and Dad! And he’s celibate and has been for a long time. Sounds like a super juicy read! Via Racked.
