Is it just me, or did you find last night's GIRLS episode to be the most absurd slash marvelous thing Lena Dunham has ever created? The plot was ridiculous--"I need to take drugs for work," Hannah informed her friends when she finally scored a paid writing gig--which led to her and Elijah going on a coke binge at a club, which led to the series' hands-down most impressive feat of fashion since its inception (and that includes Jessa's feather number from last season's Bushwick loft party).
Here's what Elijah picks out for her to wear to the club. He calls it "power clashing," and it's one of those intentionally ill-fitting/unflattering things costume designer Jenn Rogien told us about. It also kiiiiinda reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana's spring 2012 collection.
Cut to Greenhouse in NYC, where Hannah's drug-fueled dance frenzy makes some dude's offer--some dude in a mesh tank top, I should add--of "wanna trade shirts?" sound like a seriously genius idea. "Are you kidding, are you a mind reader? Yes I wanna trade shirts!"
The only thing better than seeing poor Hannah stumble around the city in this thing post-club is the range of reactions around her. "I usually hate when you wear your nipples out in public like that, but you look so beautiful, Hannah," Elijah tells her. Marnie is less enamored: "What are you wearing?" to which the response is, duh, "Oh, a shirt!"
Has one ridiculously poor excuse for an article of clothing ever said quite so much about a character? I think not. Bravo GIRLS, bravo.
