Sad news for those of us who loved Shoshanna’s quirky style on HBO’s “Girls”
We have sad news if you are both a fan of the show Girls, and someone who likes to emotionally fuse their favorite actresses to the roles they play. A recent article featured in WWD revealed that Zosia Mamet hated her wardrobe in HBO’s Girls. This means the bright colors and mix-matched patterns often worn by the hyperactive and robustly virginal Shoshanna never represented even a small portion of Mamet’s style index.
She told WWD:
"Literally in six seasons there wasn’t one time that I wanted anything or would have worn anything in real life that Shoshanna wore on the show. Her style is like if trendy took acid."
Is that a bad thing, though?
Apparently, Mamet opts for more minimalism and less bright patchy outfits when piecing together her everyday look.
"I would say [my style] is like if Diane Keaton had a baby with the Seventies," she explained. "My wardrobe doesn’t shift that much. I have a plain pair of black Doc Martens that I’ve been wearing pretty nonstop."
Does Mamet’s everyday decision match Shoshanna’s technicolor fictional life in Tokyo? Only time will tell.
We’re sorry to squash your internal dialogue that melted Shoshanna and Mamet into one cohesive persona.
But those are the knocks.
