Elizabethan hypocrite Lena Dunham made her sixth Met Gala appearance, btw

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??

      I guess I’m in the minority, but I really like her whole look here.

    • Katie says:

      It may be easy now, but it used to be difficult to get an invite, right? I say she got the original invites the same way she’s gotten everything in her life… Connections.

  2. CadiC says:

    I’d say Anna Wintour keeps inviting her to help fill the room as I think she’s getting a lot of No RSVPs. AW also probably thinks Lena is still super hip and relevant.

    • Milla says:

      I have newfound respect for Gaga and Beyonce. They are better than this. Glad they skipped it.

    • Green Girl says:

      I agree with you, and I can’t believe that is what the gala has come to. Rihanna was one of the co-hosts this year – if her attendance and involvement in the gala weren’t enough to encourage more celebrities to attend, then I don’t know what would have worked.

    • Chrissy says:

      I read that $30,000 buys anyone a ticket to the Met Gala. Heck, even Miley Cyrus was there so it seems it’s not just anyones who’s kissed Wintour’s butt is on the “guest list”.

      • Loganski says:

        I’m thinking that she’s only there because she buys her way in.

      • Milla says:

        Miley was Stella’s guest. She did not have to pay. And i do think she looked decent, boring but Stella isn’t exciting designer.

      • Lyla says:

        Celebs don’t buy tickets though. Usually companies will buy tickets and the celebs are invited to their table. Yes, tickets are 30,000, but AW gets final approval on the guest list. If AW doesn’t want you there, you won’t be (even if you can pony up the $ for the tix).

  3. mellie says:

    At the risk of sounding basic…she looks stupid.

    • Kitten says:

      At least she didn’t do the open-mouthed pose? Let’s show some thanks for that.

    • smcollins says:

      Yeah, I’m not sure what she’s going for here with that expressionless “expression.” Her face is so blank, nothing striking or remarkable about it, so her attempt at “giving face” (or the lack there of) isn’t working for her. It’s like she’s trying too hard to not be trying too hard, if that makes sense.

    • CTgirl says:

      Yes. Yes she does. Lena probably thought Queen Elizabeth, “The Virgin Queen”, was a Catholic and actually a virgin. Lena is a lumpy wedge of privilege that has been rolled in a crispy coating of ignorance and frosted with sweat and bad decisions.

  4. Sally says:

    She’s so unrecognizable but I don’t think it’s only cuz of the bad make-up.

  5. Becks says:

    Love her necklace.

    Besides that – why does she look so bored and dumb in every picture? Is that part of the look she is going for?

    She is one of those where I just don’t get the appeal and the fame. But oh well.

    • SM says:

      She looks so dump and stupid because she probably still wants to appear as someone who thinks MET gala is dump and shallow. You know, just to have it both ways just like with feminist and women’s rights, because she is a hypocrite. But seriously, the guest list shows some significant changes have to be made at Vogue

      • BrandyAlexander says:

        In all fairness, she could think that it’s boring and tedious and still be required to attend by the studios who are hiring her. I personally don’t like her, but of all the problematic things she has said and done – attending the Met Gala after saying she doesn’t enjoy it is the least of things to be bothered about by her. Focusing on it, also takes the attention away from the real things that she does that sucks, like declaring a rape victim is a liar. I’d rather have 10 articles a day on that to remind people of the real problems surrounding her.

      • Raina says:

        I liked that I didn’t recognize her.
        For fear of sounding terrible although I am genuinely curious, is she TRYING to look plump around the middle? This dress almost looks…padded? Why?

  6. Beckymae says:

    She looks like a golden ninja turtle….hero in the gilt shell, except without the hero bit…

  7. Kelly says:

    I’m sure it’s the dress? But her posture looks terrible there, like she is curling her shoulders forward.

    • minx says:

      She always has bad posture. She’s going to regret it when she gets a little older.

      • laulau says:

        I hate that I can relate to her. It is so so hard to fix permanently (weights and certain yoga are helpful tho).

  8. Adrien says:

    She should have worn Papal vestment. She kinda looks like Pope Francis (sorry, Holy Father, Catholic friends).

  9. lightpurple says:

    Oddly, despite the scowl, and the weird hood collar, and the fact that she’s not recognizable, this is probably the best she has ever looked. The dress actually fits her for once.

    • Kitten says:

      Hahaha yeah I was thinking the same thing. The dress fits and it’s not completely unflattering as per usual.

    • Venus says:

      I agree — she looks great, and I oddly love her makeup. And that necklace is to die for.

  10. Liberty says:

    She looks like Susan Boyle, the singer, when she was discovered on Britain’s Got Takent. But Susan brought some happy and talent.

  11. Originaltessa says:

    She usually looks so god awful to me, that here in a dress that somewhat fits her, she looks ok????

    • Lala says:

      That is EXACTLY what I was thinking!!!!

    • lightpurple says:

      Yup! Nothing is hanging out, nothing is stretched too tight, nothing is sagging, her ugly tattoos aren’t on display (not saying all tattoos are ugly but hers are.)

  12. grabbyhands says:

    Additional questions – why does she keep working with a stylist who obviously hates her/gives her bad advice and/or why does she have such consistently terrible style?

    If she wanted to do a better job with the theme, she should have just dragged a giant wooden cross around all night so she could remind everyone of what a victim she is.

  13. wheneight says:

    I would LOVE to know why certain people get invited to this. Lena Dunham, obviously, but also how did Rita Ora get an invite? What is she even famous for other than maybe/probably sleeping with Beyonce’s husband?

    • Misery Fox says:

      Rita Ora is a fairly succesful singer (in Europe at least, don’t know about the US). I don’t know if that merits an invite, but she’s not just some socialite who does nothing.

    • MissM says:

      Designers are often allowed to bring multiple guests and the majority of celebrities were invited by whoever designed their outfit, not Wintour.
      You can also buy a ticket for $30,000 which is how all of the Kardashians got in.

  14. Anare says:

    I saw a pic of Lena right after the gala on People. I cracked up. She looks just like the duchess from Alice in Wonderland (Tina Majorino version).

  15. Rianic says:

    I think she purposely tries to look bad.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I think she does, too, sometimes…so that when people comment on how bad she looks, she can perpetuate the victim status and preach about how people treat women as nothing but ornaments feminism something something…

      she’s so tiresome.

  16. Frida says:

    I wonder if doing a Vogue cover gets you infinite admission to the Met Gala? There’s really no other explanation.

  17. Veronica says:

    I actually really like her gown, especially in series next to her companions who give the whole thing a “medieval church” vibe. Too bad it’s wasted on her terrible self.

  18. INeedANap says:

    Is that Anya Taylor-Joy in the background on the right of the first pic? It says something about my general lack of interest in Lena’s life that I really only care about Anya here.

  19. Skittlebrau says:

    I think this is the best I’ve seen her look, hair and face-wise but that’s not saying much . . .

  20. Nel says:

    If the Kardashians can get an invite, why not Rita Ora who actually sings?

  21. Lexilla says:

    Maybe she’s going more for the Catholic Queen Mary, Elizabeth’s half sister (aka Bloody Mary)? That’s all I got. More interested in Tudor history and Lena Dunham.

  22. Margo S. says:

    She IS a dumbass. That is the best way to describe her.

  23. Neelyo says:

    Haha, nobody cared that she was there! This is the first mention I’ve seen of her presence anywhere.

  24. HelloSunshine says:

    @Kaiser- thank you for consistently laying out why Lena is a terrible human being and should be permanently canceled. Can I suggested adding admitted to molesting her sister to the list? It seriously amazes me that she didn’t get more backlash for that.

  25. Marty says:

    Lena is someone who routinely try to push the ‘outsider’ narrative, but does everything she can to desperately belong to the same group she claims that ostracize her.

  26. annabanana says:

    When you cancel someone shouldn’t you just ignore that person? By writing about her emphasizing that she is cancelled, you are still giving her attention, just totally ignore her existence

  27. Amelie says:

    She always looks so vacant and expressionless on the red carpet. I don’t know if it’s because she has no idea how to pose or she is being ironic about it. I know she’s had a rough couple of months, breaking up with Jack Antonoff and her recurring endometriosis. But why go to something that makes you miserable? I have to say I barely recognize her here in that getup and that make up.

  28. mela says:

    i cannot with her posing face. and kate bosworth too. it was too much with the frozen face

    i wasn’t really feeling this met gala.

  29. CamoTime says:

    Dont cover her. She’s irrelevant and idiotic.

  30. smee says:

    That is the best she’s ever looked – make-up wise. The strong brows and defined lips give her moon-face definition. The dress fits her like everything else does – she really needs to work on her posture.

  31. Grace says:

    Another self-involved young woman.

  32. Kimberly says:

    The bottom of her train looks like my Christmas tree skirt.

  33. raincoaster says:

    I’d LOVE to know who she sat next to this year. That’d be an interview I’d LOVE to get.
