Lena Dunham would rather go naked than promote exclusivity in fashion.
The 32-year-old actress has distanced herself from her recent collaboration with Revolve after a range of sweatshirts released by the retailer was accused of fat-shaming, and she has now claimed she will only associate with brands which cater for all women.
The 'Girls' star - alongside Emily Ratajkowksi, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Paloma Elsesser - had paired up with the label to launch a collection of clothing emblazoned with insults; however a jumper which read ''being fat is not beautiful it's an excuse'' was posted to the website early with no explanation, sparking outrage at the way it seemingly slammed those who are overweight.
Lena has now vocalised her distaste for the brand, as she posted a photo on Instagram on Friday (14.09.18) of her lying down naked in the shower while sipping from a coffee cup.
She wrote: ''Hi, don't mind me! Just showering lying down with my Starbucks cup full of La Croix (not sponsored.) In response to the sweatshirt debacle of yesterday, I've had some amazing dialogue with other women about representation, reclaiming negativity and size inclusive clothing brands.
''I follow some incredible fashion bloggers/designers who highlight this (not even tagging the models, actors and ''influencers'' who inspire me in the confidence dept) and have tagged a bunch of my true faves.
''But I want to hear from you! Because for my upcoming TV appearances -it's gonna be a bad fall for those who hate me- I'll be only repping brands that cater to ALL women. Can you @ me with your favorites and my girl @marissaconqueso and I will get to work sharing our picks? I'd rather go naked than promote exclusivity.'' (sic)
The body-positive actress was flooded with comments from fans sharing their favourite inclusive designers and labels.
One user wrote: ''Some of my favourite pieces were done by @bethditto but she's on a music break right now. Well cut amazing pieces. Also British designer @annascholz does great occasion wear pieces.'' (sic)
