HBO's new show Girls premiered last night, and the costumes were just as gritty (and at times unglamorous) as promised. Hannah kicked off the episode at dinner with her parents in a vintage dress — a perfect nod to the way certain Brooklyn girls "dress up" like versions of their moms from the eighties. She then goes to sleep with her roommate, Marnie, both in T-shirts, while we endure the omnipresence of Marnie's cardigan-clad boyfriend. Bohemian Jessa arrives straight from a Parisian adventure on the doorstep of her pink tracksuit-wearing cousin Shoshanna, telling us everything we need to know about the differences between them. Worst of all (but most hilariously), we suffer through Hannah's humiliation while she lies face-down on a couch, trying to remove her tights before her love interest returns with the lube. Click through our slideshow for a scene-by-scene analysis of each look.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
