Red carpetappearances are pretty much a non-negotiable item on the long listing of celebrityresponsibilities.But Lena Dunham is here to remind you that of her many, many undertakings, trying to be a perfect fashion plate all the time isnt one of them.
I try at a lot of things, she wrote. Mostly I try at being a writer, administrator, performer, activist, friend, sibling, partner, Godmother …. Fashion is fun but sometimes Id rather not expend 3 hours and lots of cash I could give to charity or spend on volumes and food to get ready to go out.[ There are a lot of] different ways to be a public figure and I think theres room for us to occasionally show up in public like normal people do. When I look at that video you subjected to caption this criticism, I consider a period well-spent writing, reading, having tea with a friend. Its unfortunate that the days you approve of most are the ones where Im spending the least time on what really topics. With adoration, Lena.
Hilton wrote in his commentsthat her response was well said, claiming neither of the two photos wasmeant as criticism. He then shared Dunhams comment as its own photo, to which she responded, thanks for sharing xx.
So , no harm no pollute? Not quite.
The sentiment that anyone, famous or otherwise, should be valued for how hard “theyre trying” or how good they look on the red carpet is ridiculous, and not specific to Dunham. And while great style should be celebrated, were also pretty adamant that things like a fancy dress or person or persons weight, which Dunham also recently addressed, doesnt improve or diminish person or persons worth.
We could all stand to keep this notion in intellect when it is necessary to celebrities, the red carpet, and the way we talk about them both.
