Lena Dunham on Board for Betty Halbreich Based Comedy HBO Show

If she wasn't already busy enough Lena Dunham is allegedly on board to help write the screenplay for personal shopper Betty Halbreich's autobiography, All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Dunham isn't exactly known for her impeccable fashion style, but her writing style sets her apart from the rest of the flock, by a long way. Halbreich's career saw her dress the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Meryl Streep, Joan Rivers and Estee Lauder, as well as being a consultant on Sex and the City, which is iconic for Carrie's outlandish but brilliant wardrobe seen throughout the series and movies. Given Halbreich's own very quirky styling, and the invetibly brilliant anecdotes that are certainly part and parcel of her line of work, at first glance her autobiography would make great comedy viewing, and Dunham is the girl to make it so.

She'll be teaming up with Jenni Konner, who is a producer on Dunham's show Girls - which just won two Golden Globe awards for Best comedy and Best Actress (Dunham). HBO had already purchased the rights to Halbreich's book which documents her time at Bergdorf, a department store in NYC, and its high society clients. A movie about fashion could be as vacuous as its subject often seems, but with such an interesting central character and Dunham with the reins, it certainly has a chance of being great.
