Vena Cava Recruits Lena Dunham for Lookbook Tell-All
Vena Cava enlisted filmaker Lena Dunham for their quirky fall lookbook. The result is part Lucille Ball, part Sartorialist, part LOLCATS. Dressed in Vena Cava duds, she narrates her photoshoot with the aplomb of an editor drunk on the Haus of Moddling kool-aid.
Dunham unspools her thesis de fashion with just the sort of shock-and-awe wit that Tiny Furniture fans have come to expect and adore. “The biggest fight I ever had with my mother was because I wore a banana printed crop top and navy spandex leggings on a trip to the Vatican. As a Jew, I think she was worried about blending but I wanted to feel like a slutty Polish cleaning lady,” she says, I imagine, blank-faced.
And of her atypical style choices: “It’s not about beauty—I am much more anxious that it make me feel like a character I can get behind and check in with during the day…Vena Cava’s pieces help me feel like all the characters lurking within (this would be a great thing for them to write on promotional materials, especially if they are promoting at a home for schizophrenic women.)”
A seriously overlooked selling point, if there was any.
