Actress, writer and director Lena Dunham doesn't have to be good at fashion. She's already accomplished a whole lot by shepherding Girls onto televisions across the country. But Dunham, as a Hollywood person of interest, occasionally has to dress herself up for events—with dubious success. There was this harsh yellow Rebecca Minkoff number, worn recently to a charity happening in LA. Or this strange eggplant Zac Posen she selected for the Golden Globes. And of course, there was the rose-printed Prada dress she wore to the Emmys—the one even her sister didn't like.

Today, the actress sat front row at Miu Miu's Paris Fashion Week show. She wasn't wearing neon, or something huge and shapeless. Instead, she looked really really great. Per the show notes, she was dressed in a red Miu Miu leather coat over a black wool dress accessorized by a crystal necklace and bracelet, a leather clutch and black slippers (all by Prada).
