Lena is someone who never holds back on expressing herself, and that’s almost always a brilliant, magical thing. But this dress is BOLD!
You’ve got to love Lena’s audacity, but the outfit she wore this week was less fire emoji and more crash-and-burn. There’s some promise in the asymmetry and sequins, but when combined with three feather boas… well, you’ll see.
Eva Longoria, Gabrielle Union and Jason Sudeikis didn’t fare much better in the fashion department this week. Flick through our gallery of the Worst Looks of the Week to catch up on the cringiest outfits your favorite celebs wore recently.
Someone call the fashion fire department for Lena Dunham’s dress
Jason SudeikisJason’s over here looking like either the grooviest dad at parent-teacher night or an ultra-casual college athlete. Don’t even get us started on the ‘stache. This look doesn’t fly on a red carpet, at college or on a grown man in general.Getty Images
Gabrielle UnionJason’s not the only one who’s going for a tie-dye-type effect this week. Gabrielle’s is a lot more red-carpet appropriate, but the colours are uncomfortably bright. It looks like she accidentally washed her clothes with a crayon in the pocket.Getty Images
Eva LongoriaOkay, if this outfit were in white, Eva would look like a midday TV chef who just threw a towel over her shoulder. Granted, a very fancy towel. The star looks gorgeous in green, but this shoulder thing is just not integrated into the dress at all beyond a couple stitches.Getty Images
Lena DunhamThis is wow. Here are some situations under which this garment would make the best-dressed list: 1) Met Gala with a Muppets theme, 2) Lena is a stand-in for the Olympic torch, or 3) a plague hits and the only symptom is everyone forgets the lessons learned from the eighties.Getty Images
Kristin ChenowethKristin’s giving off some Barbarella vibes with those boots, but the dress isn’t as successful. It looks like she just wrapped one of those silk-edged blankets around herself towel-style. Or like one of those girls who makes their prom dress out of gum wrappers (yes, that was a thing).Getty Images
Karla SouzaHow to Get Away with Murder? More like How to Get Away with a Fashion Faux Pas, amiright? Karla is completely pulling this look off even though the pleating on this droopy dress isn’t sitting right. Note to self: pleats and boobs tend to not get along very well.Getty Images
Melissa FumeroMelissa might be half of one of the best TV couples of all time—Peraltiago 4ever!—but this dress is looking a little lonely. It’s nice, but it’s more like the kind of blouse you half-tuck into jeans than a standalone item.Getty Images
Tan FranceTan is really pushing this whole ‘printed button-up’ obsession of his to the next level. Unfortunately for the Queer Eye host, it’s a level down. To the floor. Maybe this long shirt idea could actually work, but in the stripes, it just looks like Ebenezer Scrooge’s nightgown. Getty Images
Marlo HamptonGuess it’s a full-blown pajama party over here. The newest Real Housewife of Atlanta looks like she’s headed to one of the PJ parties where everyone just wears uncomfortable lingerie that they definitely don’t sleep in. What other purpose would a sequined set like this serve?Getty Images
Emily TremaineThis shade of green looks absolutely stunning on Emily’s complexion, but the cut looks like it was decided upon by an interior designer rather than a stylist. That is, it looks like something that should be draped over a window or blank wall, not an actress. Getty Images
Tana Mongeau and Jake PaulIn case you’re not up on your YouTube drama, these two may or may not be together just for the views, and may or may not have legally sealed the deal at their wedding in Vegas. The one thing that is certain is that they could have chosen some more tasteful outfits.Getty Images
Lacey ChabertThis top is way more complicated than it has any business being. It’s a little bit suspenders, a little bit belt, a little bit teensy wings… Where’s Lacey’s fashion fairy godmother when you need her? This look could use a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.Getty Images
Maggie GraceOhhh no. Okay so Lacey’s dress doesn’t seem so bad now. The sad thing about this is that the delicate pink lace could have been turned into something lovely, but instead it’s just some old curtains in a shocking colour.Getty Images
Yvette Nicole BrownDon’t take Yvette's spot on this list the wrong way because this is a dazzlingly intricate print... but that’s exactly the problem. A super-dense pattern like this is better in small doses rather than being the only thing livening up a standard dress.Getty Images
Quentin TarantinoSomeone needs to tell Quentin that just because you make a film that’s an ode to old Hollywood doesn’t mean you need to print some old props you found on the backlot onto a bowling shirt. Seriously, this shirt looks like something out of Scooby Doo.Getty Images
Kelly RutherfordKelly’s being totally let down by this fabric and it’s a damn shame. The dress would work so much better if it were made with a more flowy material, because right now it looks about as stiff and uncomfortable as a burlap sack.Getty Images
Rebecca RittenhouseHow does one look so charming while wearing an old tablecloth? You know what, this plaid isn’t even that bad, it’s just the colour scheme that makes it look so dated. If it was in a less Easter-y palette, she wouldn’t look so much like a Mad Men extra.Getty Images
