Watching Lena Dunham hobble up to the stage to accept her wins at last night’s Golden Globes was an exhilirating experience not only because her hit show Girls won (twice!), but also because it looked like she was gonna fall. She could barely make it across the stage.
While she seemed to manage the red carpet pretty well–at that point it was her boobs shifting in her dress that seemed to be an issue, as she explained to Ryan Seacrest–it became painfully obvious during the broadcast that her footwear was absolutely torturous.
So what were these dastardly shoes? Turns out it was a rather entry-level red carpet shoe, the Louboutin 150mm (that’s about six inches) “Lady Peep” in black (see at left). If you’d like to try your luck in them at your next event, they will set you back $945.
We’re so used to seeing celebs navigate the red carpet in ridiculous heels, but what is so endearing about Dunham is that she’s still figuring it all out and is so not like other celebs. It’s still like she’s playing dress-up in her mom’s clothes at these awards shows.
Earlier in the night Dunham had called out her undergarments as a potential source of her demise, tweeting: “If Golden Globes support garment kills me I leave my archives to my mother and my ephemera to my 8 year old friend Coco.” Turns out she was focusing on the wrong accessory.
We’re never making fun of Kristen Stewart for wearing sneakers on the red carpet ever again. Hopefully Lena had a lovely pedicure and foot massage today to celebrate her wins.
