Lena Dunham shows off her chic sense of style in a gold and black satin gown at the Serpentine Party

Lena Dunham put on an elegant display as she attended the Serpentine Summer Party in London on Tuesday.

The actress, 36, looked the epitome of chic in an eye-catching black satin maxi ensemble as she posed up a storm alongside artist-turned-fashion designer Carly Mark.

The dramatic number featured a satin gold scarf which was wrapped around her neck and fell behind her back, trailing behind her as she walked.

She paired the look with gold heels.

The star is accessorized with a gold chain, which runs across her chest, connecting the dress from the middle.

Meanwhile, Lena’s appearance comes after she celebrated five years of sobriety earlier this year.

Taking to Instagram, Lena wrote: ‘5 years ago today, I set foot – trembling like a little kid – into treatment for substance misuse. My parents hugged me goodbye, I changed into house slippers and there I was.

‘The struggle with addiction hit me little by little, then all at once. It’s a cliche for a reason- asking for help was the hardest part (I mean, aside from the other hard parts, but each step from there got easier.

‘And ease was always the goal- ease in my body, ease in my restless mind and the ease to exist in moments of pain, anxiety and uncertainty without reaching for a solution that seemed to help in the moment but pulled me further away from the people I love and the life that I want.)

‘The last 5 years have been the happiest of my time on earth so far (at least this time around!) They’ve been full of work, love, complexity and – yes – pain.’

In 2020, the Catherine Called Birdy director opened up about her addiction to the anti-anxiety drug Klonopin and the time she spent in rehab in a candid essay about her painful battle with infertility.

The Sharp Stick actress and director shared heart-wrenching details about how she was left unable to have a biological child after having her cervix, uterus and an ovary removed due to chronic endometriosis in 2017 in the essay for the December issue of Harper’s Magazine.

In the wake of that surgery – and a break-up from her boyfriend of six years, Jack Antonoff, whom she did not name directly and whom she dated from 2012 to 2017 – Dunham said she found herself ‘obsessed’ with becoming a mother, and also realized that she had formed a drug dependency.

Now, five years removed from the turmoil of those times, Lena is grateful.

She continued: ‘But facing all of that without medicating myself in unhealthy ways has given me a sturdy baseline and new tools.

‘5 years ago all of this was impossible to imagine. 5 days was impossible to imagine. 5 minutes sometimes felt hard. I was able to get and stay sober because I had the support and resources to ask for and get incredible help – medical, spiritual.

‘For so many people, the difference between sober and using isn’t their willingness, or their strength- it’s their resources. We don’t have a system that makes this easy for those who are already struggling to make their lives work.’

‘So today, on my very lucky sober birthday- and through this week- I will be matching donations to @friendlyhousela, a rehab that doesn’t turn away women and gender nonconforming people for financial reasons.’
