WHERE & WHEN: HBO’s “Girls” Season 2 New York Premiere on January 9, 2013.
MY VERDICT: Lena joined her “Girls” costars for the red carpet celebration of their second season in NYC where she opted for an on-trend jumpsuit by Valentino. The 26-year-old actress rocked the strapless black tuxedo one piece with tech suiting, slim fitting legs, and a white contrast band across the top of the bodice that transforms into a dramatic oversize bow at the back. I’m a big fan of jumpsuits, and this is has been one of my favorites since I saw Gwyneth Paltrow wear it at her 40th birthday party last year.
I think the style suits Lena’s laid-back and cool personality, but I don’t think this jumpsuit was her best choice. It was ill-fitting from start to finish and seemed to appear uncomfortable. This is supposed to have a slouchy appearance, but it’s too loose in some areas and the opposite in others here. Sometimes it’s not about what you’re wearing, but how you’re wearing it–and if it doesn’t look like it fits, it’s definitely not going to highlight you in the best way.
Light makeup and a perfectly unkempt pixie finished Lena’s premiere look.
