Dunham took to Instagram to call out the Daily Mail, who dubbed her Mara Hoffman jumpsuit an “eye-sorer.”

“What the Daily Mail calls an eyesore I call a damn dream, @marahoffman,” Dunham said in her caption. “This onesie takes me from @traceyandersonmethod to brunch to fetal position and I couldn’t feel more heroic. Was so literally psyched about the paparazzi photo so I would have evidence of it #thanksforthehelpcreepyguyintruckerhat #OnesieNation”

People summed up the look best by calling it an “athleisure feel.” Dunham paired her jumpsuit with a gray zip-up sweatshirt, a Nike knit pair of trainers, and a mini ponytail to complete her makeup-free look.

And fans seemed to agree that Dunham should ignore the hate.

“The Daily Mail only compliment ‘leggy’ 13 year old girls,” one commenter wrote. “They wouldn’t know a hot woman if one hit them in the pachanga.”

Another said, “Queen of body positivity! You’re stunning Lena! And also brilliant, and let’s be honest, that’s what really matters.”

Dunham has recently found a passion for running and has shared her uplifting, positive feels online regarding her healthy lifestyle.

“Not usually one to post a paparazzi shot but this one fills me with pride,” Dunham said in her photo caption. “Basically my whole life I have hated running and run like a wounded baby Pterodactyl. It was embarrassing and honestly I did not trust myself to escape a burning building or even move briskly towards a buffet. @jennikonner is directing the season finale of Girls and decided that as Hannah evolved so would her run, so she got me a training session with Matt Wilpers from Mile High Run Club. Within an hour I had a different relationship to this formerly torturous activity. I felt strong, swift and proud. I’m not about to embrace that triathlon life but it’s a true joy to continue getting more connected to my body and its powers.”
