You'll Never Guess How Much Lena Dunham's Sweater Sold For

Lena Dunham's fierce advocacy for women's rights and women's health takes many shapes and forms, but one thing is for sure — her dedication to the cause has no bounds, literally.

The "Girls" star attended the Planned Parenthood Los Angeles Champion of Choice event Thursday evening sporting an outfit quite appropriate for the event: A burgundy sweater with a uterus embriodered on the front.

Dunham wore the wool sweater titled "Madame Ovary" by designer Rachel Antonoff (also her boyfriend Jack Antonoff’s sister) to show support for the organization's cause.

"Rollin to the @plannedparenthood Los Angeles Champion of Choice event and there was only one sweater that would do @rachelantonoff," Dunham posted as a caption to the photo below posted to her Instagram account.


This wasn't Dunham’s final Instagram recap of the night, though. It turns out that as a completely impromptu decision, the "Girls" creator ended up leaving without the sweater, after auctioning off the design for $4,000. It's worth noting that the sweater is retailed for just over $200 here

What did Dunham have to say about this?

"The @plannedparenthood even in LA tonight was so crazy inspiring. I also spontaneously auctioned the ovary patterned sweater off my body for a nice 4k to benefit PP… Had to walk home in my skivvies and a men’s coat #worthit @onbrand #standwithPP,” she shared on Instagram with an accompanying topless shot."

Many applause for doing what's right in the name of womanhood, Lena.
