Lena Dunham Edgy in Jeffrey Campbell Boots at 2017 Met Gala

Leave it to Lena Dunham to be, well, Lena Dunham on the steps of the 2017 Met Gala. The “Girls” star joined Nicki MinajCeline Dion, and Lily Collins for the avant-garde themed event, wearing a voluminous gown and — what else — bulky Jeffrey Campbell boots.

Inspired by Elizabeth Kennedy’s fall 2017 collection, Lena’s custom one-shoulder gown had a black-and-burgundy gingham pattern. It also featured a contrasting solid black panel, a sculptural shoulder detail, a peplum waist and a full skirt. She swept her hair up in a loose bun with bangs, which showed off her kohl-rimmed eyes and Cartier jewels.

That much fabric could drown anyone’s figure, but the sculptural details added dimension to Lena’s gown. Her Jeffrey Campbell boots also gave her a bit more height and added a funky element to her dramatic look. These shoes feature chunky platforms, high block heels and a lace-up design.

The 30-year-old actress and writer had a different kind of after-party that night. She was rushed to the emergency room before the event ended due to complications from her endometriosis surgery. She shared a post on Instagram explaining the cause of her abrupt exit and thanked everyone for their concern.

Thank you for all the love & concern that’s been pouring in since Tuesday. Although I’m much healthier than I was a year ago, complications arose from my most recent endometriosis surgery. When the healthcare of so many American women, especially our trans sisters, is at-risk- or already nonexistent- I am lucky to be in the position to seek help when I’m in pain. To those in that privileged spot- never forget that we are blessed and can pay it forward by supporting Planned Parenthood and LGBTQ clinics like Callen-Lorde with our 💰 and ⌚️. I also want to remind all the women suffering from chronic illness that we aren’t weak- quite the opposite, actually. We do our jobs with skill even when we’re struggling. We care families even when we can hardly care for ourselves. We serve major face on a red carpet when we feel like lying face down would be more appropriate. I’ll always be proud of those Met Gala pics- not just because I felt beautiful, surrounded by art and magic, hugging my best friend tightly, but because they’re evidence that women contain steely multitudes. Just that morning @dianafalzone sued Fox after they took her off air for disclosing her endometriosis. But they’re the ones who lost when they fired her, because everyone who’s anyone knows that if you can battle chronic illness there’s nothing you can’t take on.

Lena’s style has always been unpredictable, and her red carpet looks are always either hit or miss. What do you think about her 2017 Met Gala look?
