My friend @piaarrobio is the punkest diva in the game. she defies all fashion industry protocol by being equally obsessed with couture & large portions of pasta. she curses like a sailor and loves other women fiercely. once i was sad and she texted "fuck ittt eat bread drink champagne live!" her designs make me feel like the raging teen smoking spliffs on the brooklyn bridge i never was and always hoped to be. so proud of her bejeweled collaboration with @erinwasson for @lpathelabel and i'll be wearing these with a spirit of defiance 🎉
To watch trisha brown dance was to watch an act of protest- against the ways women have been taught to move and to understand their bodies in motion. she choreographed a better world, more odd and elegant. i was lucky enough to know trisha growing up and even when i was far too young to appreciate the abstract, her sheer force of creativity kept me in my seat on summer nights watching her company dance. i also remember seeing her lean down to tie her shoe on a walk to the the beach and my father saying "look at that, she doesn't even have to bend her knees. that's wild!" wild indeed. rip trisha ❤
I'm just as obsessed with the music on girls as anyone (wrong that i listen to our soundtrack most days in the shower?) and it was the biggest honor to have @robynkonichiwa create a version of a track from her upcoming album just for the show. we knew the last season needed some robyn- after all, hannah would not be hannah without a lot of dancing on her own ❤️ thank you robyn, queen of space and sound! come get your honey baby 👶
#mondaymemory of these handsome, bold actors and their sweet little onscreen love story. trivia: ethan & peter were once on circus of the stars together in the 80s! sounds like it was a real swinging scene... #mytwodads
A special edition of #specialthingssunday- my handmade lady lamp by @amtendler! it's a gorgeous custom piece for my office and she has a highly distinct personality (very sensual, very reckless.) get your own at silkparlor.com and admire her old-school abilities and new school style 🎉🎉🎉
Was so proud to present my friend, my sister, my hero @americaferrera with the hrc ally for equality award last night. she deserves every freaking prize the world has to offer because someday she will save us all. it's so like me to go str8 for the lips 👄 and it's so like america to make me feel safe by kissing me back 🙏 pic by @gilbertfloresphoto (side note: moving from my ariana grande sensuality phase to my lana del rey americana moment #shawls #bighairbigdreams. meanwhile, america is serving full kate winslet in titanic 😍)
Thank you for this @refinery29. i feel i've made it pretty clear over the years that i don't give even the tiniest of s***s what anyone else feels about my body. i've gone on red carpets in couture as a size 14. i've done s*x scenes days after surgery, mottled with scars. i've accepted that my body is an ever changing organism, not a fixed entity- what goes up must come down and vice versa. i smile just as wide no matter my current size because i'm proud of what this body has seen and done and represented. chronic illness sufferer. body-shaming vigilante. s****l assault survivor. raging hottie. just like all of you. right now i'm struggling to control my endometriosis through a healthy diet and exercise. so my weight loss isn't a triumph and it also isn't some sign i've finally given in to the voices of trolls. because my body belongs to me--at every phase, in every iteration, and whatever i'm doing with it, i'm not handing in my feminist card to anyone. so thank you to my girl @ashleygraham for writing so gorgeously about this on @lennyletter (link in bio). thank you to @tracyandersonmethod for teaching me that exercise has the power to counteract my pain and anxiety, and to @jennikonner for being my partner in f**k it. i refuse to celebrate these b******t before-and-after pictures. don't we have infinitely more pressing news to attend to? so much love to all
my web friends who demand that life be more than a daily weigh in, who know their merit has nothing to do with their size, who fight to be seen and heard and accepted. i love you- lena
When i love something, i really love it- hence drawing this melange of modern kewpies (animated by @geometricsleep) and diving deep on the surprising feminist life of rose o'neill, the creator of kewpies and a radical millionairess 👶 submerging myself into her history saved me this past november. link in bio!
Last night's episode marks the halfway point of my final season with my sisters ❤😢🙏🌈 miss this nest of hair and arms so much already. not pictured: @jennikonner, shyest girl of @girlshbo! photos by @robyntwomey
#mondaymemory of sitting with hannah's doppelgänger, daisy eagan. she's been mistaken for me for years (so sorry daisy) so this role was tailor made for her. when we sat down next to each other the crew gasped at the similarities physically/vocally etc. daisy and i were like "yeah we're fabulous we get it, double trouble." shout out to @jeneustoncasting for knowing daisy was our girl, and to jenni konner for directing all the worst scenes in adam's very bad movie.
The first lady i ever met was @isabelhalleyceramics (she was three weeks old i was three days old). as an adult she has become many things: dog wrangler, us weekly reader, artist, emotional wrestling coach and wife 2 a stud. but most essential? passover plate maker! she's only 1/4 jewish and it's the wrong 1/4.... but she is accepted at my pesach table (it's a real chill table). get your forever heirloom at isabelhalley.com, support a woman manufacturer and shabbat shalom 💕
When i was 10 i memorized the entirety of maya angelou's phenomenal woman. "pretty women wonder where my secret lies..." my secret is i cherish and adore the women i surround myself with, like @meenaharris who is selling these tees at omaze.com/woman to benefit causes close our ❤s like planned parenthood & girls who code #thespanofmyhips
What a time to be alive, eh?! whether you're working, striking, protesting, wearing red, or just generally existing today, take a moment to care for yourself and to tell a woman you love that you love her. there is never a wrong way to be a woman, and we will never stop protesting or striking for those who can't. #iwd2017#daywithoutawoman // illustration by the ridiculously talented @rachelsenderw for @lennyletter, which is going dark (going red?) today!
Genuinely touched by the two young entrepreneurs at @urbansophistication_boutique who made this in response to last week's @girlshbo ep. they're donating 50% of the proceeds to rainn, and they're a reminder to me of how awesome it is to be young and gutsy and totally immersed in pop culture. if you have any questions about the episode, leave 'em in the comments! ⬇️
