Dunham and Konner, the creative minds behind a little show called Girls, are developing an HBO comedy based on All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go — the memoir of Bergdorf Goodman's personal-shopper-slash-legend Betty Halbreich. (They plan to co-write.) Now seems like a very good time to read The New Yorker's recent profile of Halbreich, who says things like "not with your behind, kid" and freezes linens before she irons them. It works better than starch, apparently.
