The Schmooze

Lena Dunham and Leandra Medine Talk Hasidic Fashion

We all have that friend we turn to for last minute fashion advice. For Lena Dunham, that friend is Leandra Medine, a.k.a. The Man Repeller.

This text-message exchange, posted to Dunham’s Instagram account on Tuesday, has them discussing a Very Important question:

Despite what Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian’s Met Ball gowns would have you believe, the runways have recently been clogged with longer hemlines and cover-all sleeves. As Elissa Strauss pointed out last year, ” the look of the moment is a modest one, a style that is unlikely to make your dad or your rabbi blush.”

(For those of you wondering, The Row is a “minimalist-leaning label known for its simplistic shapes and sumptuous fabrics” run by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — the twins recently won the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award at the 2015 Council of the Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards.)

Lena, Leandra — can we have a slumber party and play dress up? I’ll bring the rugelach.
