Lena Dunham 'working on fashion project'

Lena Dunham is rumoured to be penning a new project based on legendary Bergdorf's personal shopper Betty Halbreich.

According to Deadline.com, the Girls creator is working on the comedy show for the HBO channel in the US.

The 26-year-old is reportedly developing the show with her Girls co-executive producer Jenni Konner.

The plot will focus on iconic fashionista Betty, who famously spent decades dressing the rich and famous in New York.

Lena's most style-centric project yet will allegedly be based on Betty's upcoming memoir entitled All Dressed Up with Everywhere to Go.

The 85-year-old is well known for her eye for fashion and also her down to earth attitude and razor sharp one-liners.

The personal shopping service she offered when she founded her business in 1976 is still available today.

Over her 40-year reign as the go-to style advisor for New York City's socialites and celebrities, Betty has dressed stars including Joan Rivers, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Couric and Glenn Close.

Betty also worked on movies and TV shows set in New York, including helping design the signature look for Sex and the City.

Her memoir is said to provide behind-the-scenes glimpses into the world of high fashion, as well as serving as an inspiration for women from all backgrounds who dream of making it big in the fashion industry one day.
