If just one Lena Dunham-helmed show on HBO isn't enough for you, here's another: Deadline reports that HBO has just optioned All Dressed Up And Everywhere To Go, an upcoming memoir by Bergdorf Goodman's heavy-hitter personal shopper, Betty Halbreich. And they've enlisted Dunham and Girls executive producer Jenni Konner to write it.
If you're unfamiliar with Halbreich (what, you've never enlisted a Bergdorf personal shopper before?), know that she is 85 years old, she's spearheaded the department since the '70s, and has dressed everyone from Meryl Streep to Sarah Jessica Parker. As of now, all we know about the show is that it will "delve into the life of Halbreich who has spent decades working with the rich and famous." Oh, and that the clothes are guaranteed to be way better than Girls.
