#Emmys: Lena Dunham's dress disaster and other red carpet fails

We monitor the Emmy Awards’ red carpet disasters so you don’t have to, Twitchy readers. You’re welcome!

We don’t call it Hollyweird for nuttin!

  • CatHerder

    Dunham looks like an animated billboard. The freak show cartoons don’t help.

    • Catchance

      Did anyone check under the dress? Looks like there’s a large balloon hiding under there… or maybe just a small Volkswagen.

      • lainer51

        maybe it’s her hero, Billary…

      • Jill

        Perhaps she’s wearing the text of the health care bill and all the regulations as an avant garde slip.

      • Vitiosum

        She seems to be built like a small Volkswagen.

        • TocksNedlog

          Fahrvergpükin’

          • Vitiosum

            You win the smile of the day award! Cheers!

          • TocksNedlog

            I work here is done.
            😉

          • Jerry Camp

            We have a weiner!

      • Scorpion

        Oh, that was a dress. I thought it was a beach umbrella.

    • grais

      She ought to just stop wearing dresses. They just don’t work in her favor. Ever.

      • hatsylady

        Her whole self doesn’t work in her favor.

      • Clayton Grant

        That’s what they told Hillary too. Dunham can join the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuit.

        • Adela Wagner

          There is an essence of drag queen in MHO. Sure ain’t what the Emmy’s used to be.

      • Paul

        she should never show her face or open her mouth in public….never works in her favor.

      • Hiraghm

        Well I sure as heck don’t want to see her in her underwear… or less!

      • Jerry Camp

        Oh, God no…dresses, slacks, burlap sacks…anything…cover that up.
        I fell asleep with the bedroom TV on one evening and awoke during the HBO monstrosity ‘Girls’ and saw this…um…monstronsity in all its naked…ahem…glory.
        And, yes, I shoulda cancelled HBO when it was offered free for the 1st 3 months of U-verse, but I have not yet done so. I will be doing so as soon as I have the spare time to sit on hold for a few hours.

    • conservativechick

      So begging for free birth control is all it takes to get a ticket to the Emmy’s? Pathetic and another reason I don’t watch!

      • conservativechick

        Is that you, Lena? You won’t need those free pills if keep dressing like that and acting like a mean girl. I feel sorry for you.

      • Scorpion

        A birth control dress.

  • Netmilsmom

    These women dress like they are from the Capitol in Hunger Games.

    • Finrod Felagund

      For all practical purposes, they are.

  • brewerandpatriot

    I didn’t know Prada designed shower curtains for blue collar transexual prisons.

    • lainer51

      HA!!!!!!!!!!

    • right_on

      Who knew Prada made “coverings” for large-sized deviant cows? Thanks, Prada…now we know why they say obese females (?) should refrain from wearing floral patterns.

  • marion vega

    there are drag queens that look better

    • Matthew Koch

      And are less hairy.

    • tops116

      Are we 100% sure that Lena isn’t a drag queen?

      • CynicOwl

        I ain’t checking under the hood!

  • I’ve done that

    Why are all of their heads so big?

    • http://www.carlarolfe.com/ Carla Rolfe

      Well, they *are* celebrities, so that may explain a few things.

    • grais

      Dunham’s isn’t. It looks freakishly tiny.

      • DHiles

        Geez, no kidding…she has this tiny little head on this massive body – so unproportionally odd looking – and the dress is…well…just plain hidious.

  • Jennifer

    I’ve never seen so many D-listers on the red carpet at one time.

  • Matthew Koch

    The pattern on Lena Dunham’s dress looks like the pattern you’d see on a 1970s era sofa/love seat combo.

  • ERMERGERD

    That dress makes her look even bigger.

  • my2centshere

    Somewhere some designer is snickering to themselves,,,,,I can’t believe she thought she looked good.

    • lainer51

      I am not a designer but that is exactly what I did/said…..

    • Paul

      so true…. maybe their is a group of conservative designers watching the emmys and laughing theirs asses off

    • John W.

      She’s an Obama groupie, so we already know that her thought process is severely lacking.

  • Dragomance

    When I look at the Dunham pic,all that comes to mind is the photographer stepping backward and realizing they still don’t have everything in the picture.Which in this case would’ve been a good thing.

  • fireandreamitchell

    Stanley Dunham and Lena Dunham two freaks, same last name.

    • therealguyfaux

      Silence! I kill you!

  • Jack Deth

    Proving yet again that money cannot buy style, poise and grace!

  • kch50428

    Who is Aubrey Plaza?

    • Clayton Grant

      Aubrey Plaza is a rundown shopping center in Hollywood.

      • tops116

        There was supposed to be a remodeling job done a few months ago, but the workers were union, so…

      • TocksNedlog

        You are EXACTLY right.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Shouldn’t a woman be at 35 before she starts looking so matronly and what’s Lena Dunham hiding under that dress anyway? And for all of them–who told them they look good? Fired!

  • Paula Noakes

    Good grief. Glad I’m not watching The Emmys. I would need eye bleach, STAT, every five seconds at this rate. My eyes might never recover as it is …

  • conservativemomma

    I actually like Paula Abul’s gold dress. She has a nice figure and nothing is hanging out. Thumbs up from this mom

    • lainer51

      why the triangular shape? Is she standing on one leg?

      • Hiraghm

        Taking a step, distorting the bottom of the dress.

  • Cyborg3K

    Lena Dunham, Machinists Mate 3rd Class.

    • TocksNedlog

      WHAT ship were YOU on?!

      • Cyborg3K

        USS Jason, the ‘Hoe-baggin’ Wagon’

      • Guest

        USS Jason – The Hoebaggin’ Wagon

  • Jarhead83

    I don’t normally comment on celebretards and their fashion habits, but here goes: Plaza looks like a Victorian-era prostitute, Mamet’s dress looks like a monkey finger-painted it, Lena Dunham’s disaster looks like she’s trying to smuggle a few illegal aliens inside a couch, Paula Abdul looks like a gold Pez dispenser, but I didn’t even notice what Julianne Hough was wearing, because my eyes were too busy with other things (wink, wink)…

    • Seabiscuit

      But I actually really liked Aubrey’s dress. It looked modest, complimentary to her figure and an old fashion style. I like the high waist and the stripe stuff from under the armpits up over the shoulders. It makes me think of how my wife looked in the early years (36 ago) when her height was accented. She is still fit but does not wear the same now.

    • TocksNedlog

      That’s ‘cooch’, not “couch”.

  • Ruth

    Dunham’s dress by Omar the Tentmaker

    • Scorpion

      It’s Omar’s twerk-proof edition. He doesn’t want Miley to been seen in it.

  • DWAAP

    Guessing the mirrors were all covered in there homes! Betting the designers all had a good laugh!

  • jeanie6

    Ugly dress day. Dunham looks as if she’s wearing upholstery and Plaza looks like she’s a Victorian in deep mourning. lol

  • Diane Stephan

    Here’s a new game: How many aborted 20 week old fetuses can you fit under Lena Dunham dress? 😉

    • tops116

      Hey look, a question Obama would actually want to answer.

  • Gregg Hammerquist

    Nice granny panties, Julianne.

  • nc

    I don’t get cable anymore, but I bet Joan Rivers is going to have her best show ever on tomorrow’s Fashion Police.

  • Bemani Dog

    Why is somebody who hates children and loves abortion (Dunham) dressing like she’s nine months pregnant?

    • tops116

      It’s not the dress that makes her look like that; it’s all the food she eats that makes her look like that.

      Eesh, like Michael Moore in drag.

  • right_on

    Many, if not most of them, are narcissists…THEY think they look good…they also think they’re smarter than non-Hollywood types, with one exception. Obama. Maybe that’s why they like him so much…he’s also a narcissist, and SO smart. So smart that he can get people to give him their money, relying only on his ability to read off a teleprompter, with feigned emotional emphasis, as his only talent. (Not counting his ability to prevaricate with a straight face…NOT an asset.)

    • Paul

      ahh, but where are the transcripts and the papers? he is an effing idiot.

  • arttie

    It looks like a parachute for a Type 99 battle tank for the People’s Liberation Army of China.

  • sanfordandsons

    Wooo! Pig Sooooey!

    • tops116

      Now that I think of it, Julianne Hough suddenly reminds me of Miss Piggy.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Which reminds me, I better air out the 10 person family tent for next week’s camping trip…

  • MNWoman

    I have to wonder if some of these people intentionally dress in ugly dresses just to get attention.

    I mean, even the most free spirited of people have to realize how awful some of these dresses are, right?

    • therealguyfaux

      Emperor.
      New clothes.
      Case closed.

  • CobraJet428

    The fact Hough is confident in that abomination says a lot about the reality gap in Hollywood.

    • John Alvarado

      She probably still wants Ryan Seacrest to notice her.

    • Marvin Nelson

      Who?

  • tops116

    Seeing a D-list celebrity in a ridiculous outfit on national television? Funny.

    Knowing that they or someone else paid way too much money for said ridiculous outfit? Priceless.

  • MNWoman

    I really shouldn’t comment on fashion.

    I am more of a dress for comfort than fashion type of person. Still, even the least fashion forward person can spot a disaster.

    There are many trends I will never understand.

  • bringbackericthered

    There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with Aubrey Plaza. Nothing.

    • Marvin Nelson

      Who??

      • bringbackericthered

        first young woman on there. incredibly funny, beautiful woman.

  • sandyaz

    Just curious, how many “little people” are under Lena’s dress?

  • Arnold Townsend

    What is that thing Lena is wearing? It looks like something you’d get when you cross a pumpkin, Elton John, and a plane crash.

  • Carolyn Palacios

    I’m never into fashion. Still, doesn’t it seem like this generation of “stars” is the least attractive in the history of photography? Blech.

  • John Alvarado

    I’m pretty sure Lena Dunham stole made that dress by steeling drapes from Judd Apatow’s house.

    • Stephanie Warren

      she makes scarlet o’hair proud.

  • Janice LEE

    Mirrors covered in hollyweird?

  • Vitiosum

    I never watch these shows, but OMG Dunham’s dress was a disaster. What was that thing?

    • TocksNedlog

      Ironically, people say the same thing when she walks by wearing different clothes.
      (“What was that THING?”)

      • Vitiosum

        Why can’t she just stay under her rock? It would be so much less harmful for our eyes!

        • TocksNedlog

          It looks like the rock is under her!
          .
          .
          .
          Poor rock!

          • Vitiosum

            Agreed. Poor rock. That woman is revolting.

  • TocksNedlog

    Lena, don’t stand above a subway grate.
    DON’T STAND ABOVE A SUBWAY GRATE!!!

    • jeanie6

      That’s funny. You had me picturing her ballooning through the air in that hysterical dress floating around her. Thanks for the laugh.

      • spaceycakes

        at least it would cover her face

  • neoface

    All these women were seeking attention and they got it!!! Money definitely doesn’t buy class.

  • Zach Smith

    I know Lena Dunham is completely shameless, but if that picture doesn’t embarrass her, she truly is mentally ill.

    • Trudy Hill

      It was bad beyond my wildest imagination.If I looked like that I would have stayed home.

  • NRPax

    Have you all heard the remark that the fashion industry is run by bitter gay men? Sad when a joke gets proven so thoroughly.

    • DiabloDawg

      I didn’t know obama runs the fashion industry too.

      • NRPax

        Give it time. If he thinks the government can squeeze more money out it, they’ll be nationalized by the end of the week. -:-)

  • jeanie6

    Also, 3 years from now most of these people will fall into the ‘Who???’ category. The Emmy’s are probably the hollowest of all the hollow showbiz awards.

  • DiabloDawg

    Lena Dunham? Never heard of him.

  • Karin_A

    Ha d to google it. OMG, how absolutely fugly, both the dress and her.

  • spaceycakes

    why is that fat guy wearing Prada?

    • Level999

      The dress really highlights the tattoo.

    • Jeremy

      ha ha

  • spaceycakes

    I’m pretty sure Dunham is not interested in what men think of her…

  • Chaitealover

    I saw Dunham’s pic on another site that labeled the celebrities as looking “hot” or “not” this morning. I still haven’t stopped laughing at the fact that they labeled her as “hot,” but didn’t mean overheated.

  • garygramscom

    Maybe she is trying to pay homage to Michelle Obama, with lots of junk in the trunk… and you know how far homage goes to the fake first family

  • Art_Fold

    Lena Dunham dress disaster? How about her tattoo disaster??? Just. Plain. Ew.

  • John Alvarado

    One of these’ women has a dress that looks like it was used by artist to try to mix colors.
