Lena Dunham Wore Vintage Dior to Her Prom—See the Pic

Erin Fitzpatrick

Depending on how long ago you graduated high school, your school formal dress might range from slightly out of date to hilariously cringe-worthy. But if you happen to be Lena Dunham, your outfit actually stands the test of time because it was a vintage number by none other than Dior—lucky her!

Part of a series of sweet Instagrams paying tribute to her late grandmother, Dunham's post shows off her floral green dress with floaty sleeves. "My grandma gave me her vintage Dior to wear to junior prom (this is me in 2003, being posed by my mum before my date came)," she captioned the photo. "I call it the Sisterhood of the Travelling Dress because she was so tiny yet somehow this fits everyone."

In true Dunham fashion, there's some loveable awkwardness in the form of a lamp pose that only a mother would orchestrate. But all in all, the post is a touching way to remember her grandmother and further proof that clothes can carry a lot of sentimental significance.
