I think Lena Dunham is trolling us. She’s choosing objectively ugly clothes to wear to awards shows to prove something — for the punchline, I believe. Perhaps a variation on, “I can’t tell if I’m kidding anymore,” or an ”I dare you to take me seriously” power play, which I get because I almost put that on a tie dye business card in 2012.
But the thing is this look from Giambattista Valli costs more than I made all year so can that be a troll move? Or is a rich person trolling a flat circle in which the troll inevitably trolls oneself?
And yes, Lena Duham-based jokes are also a self-troll, I get it, and the largest joke of this YET is that I truly enjoyed Girls more than I enjoyed trying to watch Game of Thrones, but still. I call it like I see it. This is the Internet.
