Lena Dunham ruffles up the Emmys red carpet

Pretty in pink: Actress Lena Dunham attends the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 25, 2014 in Los Angeles.

Lena Dunham once declared she is "anti-pants," and at Monday night's Emmys, the "Girls" creator showed us just how she does her preferred style — skirts. Dunham graced the red carpet in a hardcore pink ombre ensemble that looked like a schoolteacher-meets-Carrie-Bradshaw moment. The cupcake-themed skirt and shirt outfit, by designer Giambattista Valli, is quite a departure from the general red-carpet gowns, and like all things Dunham, she shows she can take a risk that's still youthful at heart.

Case in point: Earlier today, Dunham tweeted, "Expert beauty tip: prepare for the Emmys by enjoying some huevos rancheros and allowing your hair to marinate in its own natural oils."
