When it comes to keeping it real, nobody can do it quite like this multi-hyphenate can. Lena Dunham posted her Halloween costume fails to Instagram because she can be honest about those costumes that didn't turn out as well as she had hoped. And honestly, I think we can all relate to that moment when that cat makeup wasn’t as cute as we originally thought it would be, you know what I mean? When it comes to Halloween costumes — you’ve either got it or you don’t, IMO.
Of course, Dunham digs way back into her childhood with some of these outfits that weren’t necessarily hits, so all of her costumes haven’t been bad. She details each of her "worst" looks in her Lenny newsletter, but the three she highlighted on social media were as follows: a secretary, Medusa, and Louis C.K. She was obviously creative with her dress-up choices, so you’ve got to give her props for that. Besides, when it’s not October 31st, her style kills, and that’s what’s most important, after all.
I love that she’s able to be so open about these Halloween flops because honestly, we’ve all been there. As much as everyone wants their costumes to be great, they’re not always going to be, and that’s OK. It happens to the best of us, right, Dunham?
These may not be her favorites, but at least she's seriously adorable.
See seven times she did nail this whole ultra stylish thing when it wasn't Halloween.
1. Checkered Cuteness
She's so ladylike in this dress.
2. Mod Gal
I'm loving the very mod print here.
Doesn't she look amazing standing up for what she believes in?
4. Oh So Vibrant
Bold colors suit her.
5. Darling In Denim
How great is this denim dress?
6. Casual Glam
The girl even does casual wear incredibly.
A little sparkle never hurt nobody.
It may not be Oct. 31st, but she slayed with these looks. Here's to hoping your Halloween costume is on-point this year.
