Lena Dunham, the creator, writer, and star of HBO’s hit TV series Girls took to Instagram late Friday to debut her new do: a platinum blonde bowl cut! There was speculation that the new hair was just a wig but after a couple days of gossip and Dunham’s Instagram video of her doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge surfaced online, it’s officially confirmed that her new hair is in fact real! Dunham posted the photo with the caption “Change is good.” With the “lob” (long bob) being the latest celebrity hairstyle trend, celebs have been chopping up their hair all summer. We give props to Dunham for taking the extra step and creating her own unique style, taking this trend to the next level. What do you guys think? Will Dunham’s bold statement be the next big look? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
It’s no secret that the fashion industry has always grappled with the issue of representation, and Latino representation is no exception. The glossy catwalks of the 80s and 90s were nearly completely dominated by the (white), nepotistic European fashion houses of the day with little room for Latino designers to showcase their talents, let alone share their culture with the world; for the few that did exist–Carolina Herrera and Isabel Toledo come to mind–their Latino identities were noticeably secondary to their work. But now it’s 2023, and though the industry is not without faults, Latino/a fashion enthusiasts can now see their cultures and experiences reflected in fashion at all levels. While plenty of Latino men have made their way in the fashion world, I’d like to specifically focus on the women–who have been historically vastly overlooked–who are changing the game and pushing the boundaries of design by bringing Latin America to high fashion.
