In fairness, I think a lot of sites missed Lena Dunham’s appearance at the Met Gala. I didn’t see these photos of Lena until Tuesday afternoon. She walked the carpet and everything, although there aren’t many photos of her floating around. I would imagine that the fashion photographers were like “hey, Lena, pose for a sec!” and then they took two photos and they were like “okay, we’re fine now.” Instead of going with Catholic-imagery theme, Lena’s Ronald van der Kemp gown seems to be drawing more inspiration from England’s Protestant Queen Elizabeth I. The necklace is by Stephen Webster.
This was actually Lena’s SIXTH time at a Met Gala. This was her second consecutive year at the gala following her 2016 hissy fit/tantrum, where she trashed the Met Gala as a boring and tedious night. That was the same interview where she ascribed some really sleazy, misogynistic thoughts to Odell Beckham Jr. and made it sound like he was a terrible person because he simply didn’t devote his entire evening to amusing Our Lady of Special Snowflakes. This was actually the first Met Gala she’s attended since she claimed that a rape victim was obviously lying about being raped by her white dude friend. What’s the point of all this? Lena Dunham is still canceled, and she’s still an absolute dumbass. Why does she keep going to the Met Gala? And why does Anna Wintour keep inviting her??
