Feminist celeb selling dress she cried in when Trump won


A day after she controversially said good bye to her dog, Lena Dunham is now selling the tear-stained dress she wore election night.

The dress is headed out the door along with more than 100 other items the celeb has for sale on RealReal. “I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally,” Dunham, 31, told the New York Times in a Monday story.

Dunham was among fellow Clinton supporters at the Javits Center in New York on election night, where she posted a selfie with Lady Gaga wearing the the Kenzo ruffle-accented printed dress.

Dunham hasn’t been a fan of the Trump presidency, which she believes is devastating for women. “If you had told me six years ago that we would be in the place we are now, I would have said that you were crazy,” she said remembering election night.

“And now, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ just seems too real,” she said. “It’s a very, very challenging moment to be a woman in America. It’s nice to be able to unite my most joyful and frivolous interest, Shopbop, and my most powerful interest, women’s bodies and how to protect them.”

She lists the dress in “very good condition” at $125 and doesn’t mention any permanent tear stains. She plans to donate the proceedings to Planned Parenthood.

@ladygaga let me into her vagina for safety when I cried. And that’s beautiful.
