A lot happened on Girls this week! Hannah (Lena Dunham) quit her job at Grumpy’s and tried her hand at a big-girl relationship with a doctor named Joshua (guest star Patrick Wilson). And, in the fashion department, she wore her second pair of “shorteralls” this season, this time a Topshop romper with parrot print. “Hannah sort of ends up in an unexpected spot, but she starts at work, so we wanted it to be something that could travel,” explained costume designer Jenn Rogien (inset), who is nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award for Girls. “It continues the ‘shorteralls’ theme that Hannah’s been on, so it made sense that she would wear something like that to work—and that she would think that that particular piece was fun.” And that’s not all!

The girls of Girls were at the Grammys tonight! At the same time a new episode hit the airwaves on HBO, TV’s hippest BFFs graced the red carpet as plus-ones for the evening. Katy Perry (in skin-baring Gucci) brought pal Allison Williams (in Kaufmanfranco), while Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff had girlfriend Lena Dunham at his side. He also thanked Dunham when Fun. accepted the Grammy for Song of the Year for their party smash hit “We Are Young.” How cute!

For those Girls fans who were tuned into Beyonce Bowl last night, fret not! HBO already posted the fourth episode, “It’s a Shame About Ray,” online (watch it here) so you don’t have to wait to see your favorite Brooklyn-based ladies doing their worst. This week, there was a lot of relationship drama for Allison Williams’ Marnie and Jemima Kirke’s Jessa, and we spoke to costume designer Jenn Rogien to learn all about what they were wearing when it went down. “We didn’t want the wardrobe to be the focus this week, we just wanted to underscore what was happening,” Rogien explained. “There was a lot happening emotionally and story-wise, so we wanted to take a step back and support that.” Indeed!

The Directors Guild Awards were held on Saturday in Los Angeles, and it was another big night for Ben Affleck! The actor/director was awarded the evening’s top prize, Outstanding Directorial Achievement, for his film, Argo, and he thanked his wife, Jennifer Garner (in Antonio Berardi), and their children in his loving acceptance speech. “I have to just thank my wife for being the best person in the world. I love you,” Affleck said. “I don’t need to look at the teleprompter to know why I want to thank you. I want to thank you because I love you.“ And he wasn’t the only winner: Lena Dunham (in Thakoon) went home with a DGA for the pilot of Girls, while the Les Miserables cast showed up, too, with director Tom Hooper staying close to stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway (in Valentino) throughout the night. Congrats, everyone—on to the Oscars!
Speaking of which, see everyone who’s nominated for an Academy Award this season!
Lena Dunham, the brains behind HBO’s hit show Girls and two-time Golden Globe winner, is working on another show for the network. Teaming up with her Girls producer Jenni Konner, the pair will combine their comedic efforts to create a new series based on the upcoming memoir All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go by long-time Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper, Betty Halbreich. With Dunham at the helm, it’s sure to be a raw and poignant dive into Halbriech’s world of working with the rich and famous, including Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Katie Couric. We can’t wait!

InStyle went backstage at last night’s Golden Globe Awards! We were there when Girls creator and star Lena Dunham gushed over her wins for Best Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy Series, and pondered where she was going to stash her new accessories. “I have a little area for special trinkets, like a little special trinkets shelf,” Dunham told InStyle.com, adding that they’ll go between her swimming certificate and commerative Eloise plate. And how did Best Actress in a Drama winner Jessica Chastain feel when her name was called? “I just couldn’t believe it,” the Zero Dark Thirty star told InStyle.com. “It was a bit of a shock and then I thought, ‘Don’t trip on the stairs!’” See what all the stars had to say about their Globes in the gallery.
