A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham)
Lena Dunham is in the news this week because she’s doing a fashion collaboration with 11 Honore, the plus-sized e-commerce site. To promote this fashion line, Lena gave an excessively long interview to the New York Times. Keep that in mind – she didn’t talk to Vogue or Marie Claire or InStyle. She didn’t go to a women’s fashion-focused media outlet for her first promotional interview for this project. That’s because she wanted to make it all about she is the only one to see the hole in the market for plus-sized girls who want to dress like Lena Dunham.

Body-hatred: “It doesn’t mean I haven’t felt a lot of body hatred in lockdown,” she said. She is not a fan of some current terminology, of words like “plus” or “curve” or “body positive.” “The thing that’s complicated about the body positive movement is it can be for the privileged few who have a body that looks the way people want to feel positive. We want curvy bodies that look like Kim Kardashian has been up-sized slightly. We want big beautiful butts …
