Lena Dunham gets a ''perverse pleasure'' from making worst dressed lists.

The 'Girls' star regularly comes under fire from fashion critics for her unconventional red carpet choices, but she insists she is immune to negative comments and simply chooses clothes she feels good about.

She told Grantland Channel: ''I love clothes but I don't care about best dressed and worst dressed lists. I actually get a perverse pleasure from being told I look horrible. So I get designers I love to make me dresses I'm excited about and then I wear them, and whatever the reaction is, I feel stoked.''

The 27-year-old writer-and-director doesn't ever throw her dresses away and hopes her future daughter will be able to recycle them in years to come.

Lena joked: ''I'm saving them for - I hope - my future daughter. I dry clean them all... I have a serious dress collection. If I don't have a daughter then someone had better do a museum show, with squat, chubby mannequins.''

The actress also slammed claims her February cover of US Vogue had been airbrushed to make her appear slimmer, saying it was ''messed up''.
