Someone Finally Tells Shoshanna Her Style Is 'Off-Putting'

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It looks like Hannah Horvath has finally got her shit together in season four of Girls. The sadness and confusion that comes with being newly graduated and unemployed has shifted over to Shoshanna Shapiro, who was previously living in a terry cloth-lined bubble. Shosh looks extremely concerned in a series of job interviews, wearing high-neck patterned dresses and tweed blazers that are flat out unpleasant. A very blunt interviewer just says it like it is, "You have an off-putting style." At least she wasn't wearing a fascinator this time.
