First look at Lena Dunham’s hair-raising Scandal makeover

The Girls creator will look rather different when she appears alongside Kerry Washington in the US drama

You probably know her as pixie-cropped Hannah from Girls but Lena Dunham’s had a makeover for her upcoming guest spot on Scandal.


Her new onscreen wardrobe is surprisingly strait-laced and even includes a wonderfully different wig:

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the series, here’s a quick summary: former White House communications director Olivia has left to start her own crisis management firm, dedicated to protecting the public images of the nation’s elite

Dunham joins the cast on 19th March and it seems her character will go head to head with Kerry Washington’s Olivia Pope.

“[The episode] It’s Good to Be Kink sees Olivia springing into action when she hears of a woman intending to expose sex secrets of some of D.C.’s most elite,” the official blurb from broadcaster ABC reveals.

That sounds like quite a clash but it didn’t stop Dunham and Washington from bonding. Lena shared a snap of the pair together on set via her official Instagram account and it was more love-in than scandal.


No word yet on when the episode will air in the UK but watch this space.
