Betty Halbreich Doesn’t Watch Girls, Embraces Panty Girdles
Lena Dunham—the outspoken Girls creator with a singular and oft outré aesthetic—has a fashion-forward new project in the works: an HBO comedy based on the life of 85-year-old Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper Betty Halbreich. During the New Yorker festival, The Telegraph was privy to a convo between the two ladies, in which Halbreich, who’s worked with Bergdorf since 1978, admits that she’s never watched Girls and that she was wearing a “panty girdle.” The style maven also commented on Dunham’s Emmys look: “That blue eye shadow…made your eyes tear,” she said, to which Dunham lightheartedly replied, “I know. The Emmys weren’t my finest hour.” Who knows—perhaps Dunham could get more than just TV material from the seasoned sartorial adviser.
