This Is How the Times Calls Lena Dunham Fat


In today's assessment of the Emmy Awards red carpet, the Times' Ruth La Ferla compares the physiques of actresses Claire Danes and Lena Dunham:

Ms. Danes ... turn[ed] out in a Giorgio Armani tulle confection that showed off an ethereal, if slightly skeletal, frame. What Ms. Danes lacked in pulchritude, Lena Dunham of “Girls” supplied in abundance, wearing a coral-rose-patterned Prada gown that (somewhat sloppily) showed off her curves.

To conclude: "skeletal" = ethereal, and "abundant pulchritude" = sloppily displayed curves. These women really can't win, can they?
