You can shop the actress’ closet on The RealReal

If there’s one thing we know Lena Dunham stands by wholeheartedly, it’s women’s rights. With the future of these rights facing uncertainty, the writer and actress is doing whatever she can to give back to those fighting the hardest. That's why Dunham decided to partner up with luxury consignment site The RealReal to benefit Planned Parenthood.

This morning, a whopping 169 items from her personal closet went up for sale, with the full amount of her 70 percent commission going toward the women's reproductive health organization. With prices ranging from $35 for a pair of Nasty Gal ankle boots up to $4,000 for that Elizabeth Kennedy dress she wore to this year’s Met Gala, the actress is sure to raise a decent chunk of change.

“I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally,” she told The New York Times. “I always thought I was going to hoard all of my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all of this good fashion fortune I’ve had a spread it.”

And spread it, she has. The majority of her pieces have (unsurprisingly) already sold, such as the ruffled Kenzo dress of our dreams and a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs color block sandals. However, you can still snag a few special items; in fact, a couple red carpet looks a la Zac Posen and a pair of Prada slingbacks are just waiting to call your closet their new home.

You can check out Dunham’s offering (and, *sigh*, see what’s already been snatched up) here.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
