This has to be her best year ever!
Girls creator Lena Dunham has been tapped to develop a TV project based on famed NYC stylist Betty Halbreich, who began her career working at the high-end department store Bergdorf Goodman in the seventies.
The rights to Halbreich's memoir All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go were previously purchased by HBO, and Dunham will be teaming up with producer Jenni Konner on the yet untitled series.
So what kind of woman was the fashionista main character?
"She doesn't tell you that something is you, then you get home and try it on and it looks backwards. It's like shopping with a friend. With her, you never feel pressured. I do all my shopping through Betty unless I can get something wholesale," Joan Rivers gushed over her friend.
Miss Dunham is going to be one busy lady! In addition to her Golden Globe winning HBO show, she also has a collection of essays titled Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned that earned her a $3.5 million deal with Random House publishing.
We can't wait to watch!
