Siriano's Dunham dress tweet was misunderstood

Christian Siriano insists he thinks Lena Dunham's Emmys Gown was "unbelievable".

The Girls actress turned heads in a gown created by Giambattista Valli for the annual award ceremony last month, and her choice of label was mimicked by her co-star Allison Williams, who opted for a couture ensemble.

Christian also dressed stars for the event, with Sarah Hyland looking stunning bespoke outfit made up of a white crop top and silk faille ball skirt.

However the fashion star appeared to make a jibe towards Lena and her designer dress on Instagram that same evening, posting a photo of his own gown very similar to the one worn by the actress.

"Remembering this ombré tulle gown from our Spring 2010 collection this morning. One of my favorites from the archives! (sic)" he wrote alongside the snap.

Despite how others took it, Christian insists it wasn't an insult.

“I posted a picture because it was in my store, which just opened," Christian insisted to Page Six. “I didn’t invent ombré... I think Giambattista’s clothes are unbelievable. I would never compare. It was a misunderstood tweet.”

Fans may have been quick to comment and defend, but Lena appeared to be unfazed by the rumours. After the busy night at the ceremony the blonde star was determined to let her fans know how grateful she was for the outfit.

She had posted photos on Instagram throughout the night, and the last one saw her lying face down on a bed looking exhausted.

"Thank you @giambattistapr for the dress of my #dreams (sic)" she wrote.

Fans shared their delight at her dress, with user graciavisscher posting: "@lenadunham this is really the dress that symbolizes me. So cool you got to wear it (sic)".
