The always provocative Lena Dunham made the internet buzz once again when she posted a photo of herself clad in nothing but lingerie to her Instagram. While fans of her character Hannah on Girls, the HBO show that Dunham created and stars in, may be used to seeing Dunham with very little on she tends to be far more modest in her real life.
In the much talked about photo Dunham is posing in her bathroom wearing a green lingerie set. "Love my @lonelylingerie and I think I will wear it to dinner with some boots & a smile because we are all very lucky to be free," Dunham said on her Instagram.
Lonely Lingerie is a New Zealand based company that promotes itself as a brand aimed towards "women who wear lingerie as a love letter to themselves."
Given that we haven't heard anything about the inevitable commotion that would have accompanied Dunham leaving the house in only that we're guessing that the dinner she went to must have been within her own residence. Or, more likely, she was bluffing. Considering that this post garnered over 80,000 likes we can't imagine the social media impact that would have gone along with her dining in a restaurant. Dunham's partner, Jack Antonoff, had a slightly more conservative look on Sunday.
While we would have preferred if Dunham took this picture at an angle that allowed us to get a look at her tattoos, we appreciate her celebrating her freedom by taking the picture in the first place.
