Hot on the heels of sending Lamby to be “rehomed” because she claims he had “behavioral issues”, the controversial actress/writer who some say has “behavioral issues” of her own, has decided to fully clean house and rehome some of her wardrobe.
Today, 169 pieces from her wardrobe will be up for sale on the RealReal a website for fashion consignment. Proceeds of her 70 percent commission will go to benefit Planned Parenthood.
Included in the lot are items such as gowns from award shows and the Met Gala, the Kenzo x H & M dress she wore to the Javits Center, T-shirts (none of which say “Save Lamby”) and items from the closet of Hannah Horvath, her character on “Girls” –ranging from sizes 4 to 12. Each item will come with a letter from Dunham explaining its relevance. Prices range from $35 for a pair of ASOS suede pumps to $4,000 for the Elizabeth Kennedy gown Ms. Dunham wore to this year’s Met Gala.
Of the purge, Dunham explains, “I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally. I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it.”
Just don’t expect to be a fashion plate simply for donning Dunham’s outfits. She is fully aware her sartorial taste level is not up to everyone’s standards.
“I’ve gotten this reputation as someone with notoriously bad style,” she said. “I would say the fashion blogs enjoy a bit of a roast of me. I don’t mind; I’ve always thought the worst dressed were the best dressed.”
“Probably some people will buy the clothes because they hate me and burn them,” she adds. “And I bless them, too. The money’s still going to Planned Parenthood.”
Anyone wanting to walk in Dunham’s shoes, there are myriad pairs available for purchase, most size 8.
And hey, if Dunham now opines not having at thing to wear, at least she can’t use the excuse that the dog ate her dress.
