Lena Dunham’s an outspoken advocate for women, promoting equality, reproductive rights, and body positivity. Her latest endeavor? Fashion for all.
The Girls creator rang in the New Year with a sexy selfie. In the photo shared on Instagram, she’s in a semi sheer off-white blouse with a keyhole neckline large enough to expose her lingerie. Her black floral bra was covered in blue and pink flowers. And the caption did not really match the photo.
The first part of her caption was kind of confusing, reading: “Resolution: in 2017 when divorcing couples cite irreconcilable differences it’ll just be code for ME.”
However, there is no question as to what the second half of her post is requesting. “But seriously: woman designers for real bodies of every size til forever,” she concluded.
Clearly, Dunham is onboard with the push for more realistic looking models and inclusive collections. She also wants to see more female designers running the fashion world. Who doesn’t want all of those things?
She tagged the designers she was wearing, which included Lonely Lingerie, a brand she’s worked with before. It seems the brand is on the same page as Dunham; Lonely’s mission is “to showcase women wearing underwear in a way that we usually don’t see in mainstream advertising and the media.” Dunham and Girls co-star Jemima Kirke participated in a photo series for the brand’s Instagram and website. The images of women in Lonely Lingerie are never retouched and always badass.
“Instead of being objectified, the women who participate in these campaigns — in this case, Lena and Jemima — are empowered and exhibit real beauty that will hopefully help women everywhere feel a little more liberated,” the brand said according to WWD.
Here’s to hoping Dunham gets what she wants in 2017.
