Wondering where Hannah's ugly party dress came from on last night's Girls premiere? Let costume designer Jenn Rogien explain: "So we found that dress, which is a vintage piece from Amarcord. The combination of the Peter Pan collar, the really sad color palette, and the proportions—it's too long, the waist is in the wrong place, it's got strange sleeves—makes for such a sad dress that Hannah would decide to change in the middle of her party into something more festive. And the dress she changes into is also tragic, but slightly more festive." [The Cut]
