Lena Dunham has spoken out against bloggers who criticised her for appearing in micro shorts at a recent event.
The Girls creator and star caused a storm of online criticism by wearing a long, loose blouse over barely there short-shorts.
The 26-year-old's green outfit showed off her dimpled thighs and drew caustic remarks from bloggers.
Where are the pants? Lena Dunham appeared to be missing her bottoms at the L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade Culinary Event at Culver Studios last week
It didn't help that Lena paired her ensemble with brown-and-pink polka dot flat shoes.
'Last week I wore something to an event...a big top and little shorts, and a bunch of [blog posts] came out that I had been out without pants [trousers],' Lena said at a New Yorker Festival.
'I actually saw it..."Love it or hate it: The no pants look." My mom...thought it was so funny.
'My boyfriend was like, "People seem to be worked up about you going out without pants." But I didn’t go out without pants! I had shorts on.
'Get used to it': Lena defended her big thighs after bloggers made fun of her seemingly pantless appearance at the September 29 charity event in L.A. Here Lena poses with Girls co-star Allison Williams
'If Olivia Wilde had gone to a party in...little shorts, she might have been on a "weird dressed list" or been told her outfit was cute.
'I don’t think a girl with tiny thighs would have received such no-pants attention. I think what it really was..."Why did you all make us look at your thighs?"
'My response is, get used to it because I am going to live to be 100, and I am going to show my thighs every day till I die.'
Lena, who just signed at .5 million deal with Random House to write an advice book, wears next to nothing on her HBO show all the time.
The star also appeared naked during an opening skit at the Emmy Awards - gorging on birthday cake while sitting on a toilet.
