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.
