In case you somehow missed it—you know, because it wasn’t televised and the number of high-powered celebrities in attendance paled in comparison to the SAGs or the Globes—the Directors Guild of America held its annual awards ceremony this weekend in L.A. In attendance were the usual suspects: Ang Lee, Steven Spielberg, et al, as well as some newcomers, like Ben Affleck, who won the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film Award for Argo, and Lena Dunham, who continued her awards-show sweep by becoming the first female director to win for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Comedy Series for Girls. “I’m terrified every time I step on set,” effused a beaming Dunham when she accepted her award, although she admitted that she’s getting more and more self-assured in that regard—and on the red carpet as well, it would appear. The multitalented twenty-six-year-old was wearing a custom color-blocked Thakoon dress and a demure red manicure. A self-professed fan of nail art, Dunham’s beauty look seems to be evolving—nay, maturing—as her stock continues to rise. Nothing wrong with keeping it classic. Thoughts on Dunham’s latest dose of lacquer love?
Last night, we were delighted to find Girls star Lena Dunham chatting with Jon Stewart when we turned on the television to get our Daily Show fix. Things took a turn for the funny and charming, as they often do with Dunham, when the conversation focused on her recent Golden Globe win. “We heard one photographer say, ‘Ugh, newbies,” she joked of the paparazzi response when she posed for pictures with her statuette post-show. “Then someone screamed, ‘Get media trained!” Dunham’s savvy for stroking her award and posing for the cameras may be a work in progress, but her beauty aptitude appears to be right-on. As she continued to banter with Stewart, we noticed that her thick, well-applied cat-eye wasn’t black but navy—an inky, dark midnight akin to the color Tom Pecheux used backstage at Altuzarra for Spring. Either someone’s been reading our trend reports, or Dunham just happens to be innately on message (we’re sticking with the former). Thoughts on her beauty moment?
After debuting her brand-new, Miley Cyrus-inspired pixie cut in the winter issue of i-D magazine, Lena Dunham has undergone another makeover for her Entertainment Weekly cover turn. The sixties homage takes a page out of the Spring 2013 Marc Jacobs handbook, with lots of lashes and a black banana liner as well as mod, black and white nails by Marc-approved manicurist Elisa Ferri.

The first Walgreens flagship has arrived on the West Coast, and it is not messing around. In addition to a fully equipped Look Boutique—the drugstore’s upmarket niche showcase that stocks brands like Cargo, Roger & Gallet, Nuxe Paris, Vichy, and Boots No. 7—there are a frozen yogurt station, fresh sushi bar, coffee and espresso bar, and juice and smoothie bar. Only in L.A. [Racked]
