Lena Dunham made a bold statement on the red carpet for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards Sunday night.

The Girls star donned a bright yellow Zac Posen gown and spoke with E!'s Ryan Seacrest about how the designer taught her how to pose before stepping out for the big night.

"I know I'm going to see something horrifying later, but I just was trying to copy Naomi Watts," she revealed.

"Someone told me to make an ‘s' with my body. Zac, who made this dress. None of this is quite right on me. I don't think it looks great I'm just saying that is what I was told to do."

So how is the Lead Actress in a Comedy nominee handling her second year at the Golden Globes?

"I have to say it's a little more relaxed. Tonight I did not bring either of my parents, so that's both really sad and a certain burden has been lifted."

Seacrest asked the 27-year-old star where she would be if she was home for the awards show.

"I would be in my pajamas eating junk food and obsessively refreshing my Twitter," she admitted while laughing. "Instead I've been starving for days and haven't looked at my Twitter."

But fret not, the HBO starlet explained that she "ate a thick patty of hamburger meat" before getting ready for the night's festivities. She joked that her midday snack was "like a cave woman."

While her fashion choice this evening is sure to cause quite a stir, odds are high that Anna Wintour is a fan of the strapless gown.

The Vogue editor in chief has chosen Lena as the February cover girl for the fashion bible and will feature the other stars of the hit series as well.
