As for footwear, Dunham was styled in a pair of timeless black Mary Jane heeled shoes. They appear to made out of patent leather and feature a thin strap across the ankle.

From previous red carpet appearances, we know that Dunham has been a long time fan and avid wearer of 16Arlington. In July 2019, the actress wore an attention-grabbing orange sequin gown with a bright pink feather trim for the “Once A Upon A Time…in Hollywood” London premiere. She finished the look with a pair of Jimmy Choo sandals. Along with her runway look earlier today, Dunham frequently opts for classic Mary-Jane inspired heels, balancing out her more statement ensembles.
