When Lena Feels Confident in Her Clothes
"I feel most confident when I am wearing something comfortable and casual that expresses my sense of humor. I love easy separates that have color and texture but also make some noise. Recently, I basically bought out Lisa Says Gah's plus-size cotton separates because they do that for me when I'm on set. For my birthday last year at home in lockdown, I wore a Rachel Comey onesie from 11 Honoré with a wrap front. When I look for clothes, I look for pieces that make me feel powerful and adventurous, but most importantly clothes that fit me. My dream is to hear from women who are having powerful experiences in the clothes — meetings where they felt like they could sit proudly in their chair and focus on their mission and not on their outfit, dates where they weren't tugging on their hem but walking down the street feeling totally boss. I also want to send the message that being curvy is something to celebrate, not simply handle. It's not a problem to fix or cover up, but rather a really beautiful celebration of having a lot to give."
