When Lena Dunham met Erdem

The pair hit the Met Ball together

From Stella McCartney to Mary Katrantzou , Vivienne Westwood to Burberry, British designers got a lot of support on the red carpet at last night’s Met Ball. Our favourite pairing? Lena Dunham wearing Erdem, not least because she didn’t just sport the label, she bought its designer with her too.

The floor length black gown was custom made for Dunham, but reportedly the actress and designer didn’t meet during the making of it, instead speaking across the Atlantic via Skype. And when Lena finally did get to try on the dress ,‘My dog ate a safety pin during the fitting, which is punk!’ she revealed on the red carpet.

Dunham wasn’t the only star to don an Erdem dress – Alexa Chung, a dedicated fan of the designer, also chose to wear a black number from his a/w 2013 collection.
