Lena Dunham is selling the dress she says she cried in on election night last year, when President Trump defeated Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBudowsky: Why GOP donors flock to Manchin and Sinema Countering the ongoing Republican delusion Republicans seem set to win the midterms — unless they defeat themselves MORE.
The Kenzo ruffle-accented printed dress is one of more than a hundred items up for grabs from the former “Girls” star as part of a sale on the RealReal, an online fashion consignment store.
Dunham, one of Clinton’s most vocal Hollywood supporters, hit the campaign trail for the Democratic presidential nominee. She was among the crowd of Clinton supporters at the Javits Center in New York on election night, and posted a snapshot on Instagram of herself in the dress posing with Lady Gaga as results came in.
Despite any tear residue, the garment, being sold for $125, is listed in “very good” condition. Each item sold comes with a “personal note” from Dunham.

“I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally,” Dunham, 31, told The New York Times in a Monday story. All proceeds from Dunham’s commission from the sales will go to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, according to the Times.
Dunham, a frequent critic of Trump, said, “If you had told me six years ago that we would be in the place we are now, I would have said that you were crazy.”
“And now, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ just seems too real,” she said. “It’s a very, very challenging moment to be a woman in America.”
“It’s nice to be able to unite my most joyful and frivolous interest, Shopbop,” Dunham said, “and my most powerful interest, women’s bodies and how to protect them.”
