As if the gorgeous clothes and frolicking models at Honor’s show Thursday afternoon weren’t enough to make us happy, our favorite Girls character was sitting front row! Yep: Shosh! Which wasn’t terribly surprising: she pretty much exclusively wears Honor on the red carpet these days (which is definitely what I would do if I were a celebrity).
Backstage, after taking photos with stars of my other favorite TV shows (Natasha Lyonne of Orange is the New Black and Morgan Saylor of Homeland),
Shosh Zosia Mamet was nice enough to answer a few of our burning questions. Like, why does she love Honor so much?
“A friend of mine discovered them and told me that I would like them and I went into their showroom and I was obsessed with them,” she enthused. “I think Giovanna makes stuff that is really so on par with exactly my style. It’s definitely feminine and girly, but it’s really edgy as well. I love how risky she is and I think she’s phenomenal as a human, so anything I can do to support it. And it makes me feel wonderful so I wear it a lot.”
Fair enough. She’s also been making flats one of her red carpet signatures, despite being, well, not exactly tall, which we love. “I don’t feel very natural in heels and I really like wearing flats. I like wearing a lot of short dresses and I find with flats it often just looks better, and is more comfortable. I’d rather do that than be unhappy and wear heels.”
And finally, what has been up with Shoshanna’s hair lately? The crazy braids? The side ponies?
“Yeah, [it's been] pretty crazy. I mean, she’s just sort of a wild child in certain ways and I think she’s definitely concerned with doing everything right, but at the same time marches to the beat of her own drummer and I think her hair especially is a place where she just lets it fly free.”
