As Khloé Kardashian tries to come to terms with her own body image in public, Lena Dunham has no qualms about accepting hers. In fact, the 34-year-old actress is probably done trying to convince everyone else from the obvious – that she’s not a size 0. But rather than fit in and cover up one issue with another, Dunham’s hoping to inspire others with similar societal pressures that it’s okay to have a little more meat on the bones and curves that swerve. Together with size-inclusive retailer 11 Honoré, she has put out a five-piece line of fashionable wares that cover from sizes 12 through 26. The collection isn’t looking to add on to the high number of staples that you’ve amassed through the years. Dunham, who started a relationship with 11 Honoré as a customer, intends on showing that size-inclusive wares can be fashion forward too. This includes a blazer and skirt with a scallop hem and a button-up shirt that encourages different modes of wear. “My goal with these looks for @11honore was that they would have the energy of the artist women I grew up around in downtown New York, free thinkers who leaned into masculine suiting but also loved to play with feminine shapes, who made their way from the studio to the flower market on 14th street to pick up their kids, then out to the Public Theater and need to layer and function. But those vintage-inspired looks tend to exist in slim cuts for waifs, and I don't want any plus woman to wonder if she'll fit into these clothes.” While we can’t be sure if Dunham’s going to give fashion collabs another go after this, at least she can be comforted by the fact that she has given it a shot – much like that attempted red carpet smooch with Brad Pitt.
