Less than two months after the birth of her second child, actress Jemima Kirke unveiled her slim post-baby body at the Girls season 2 premiere party in New York City Jan. 9.
Held at New York University's Skirball Center, the 27-year-old channeled Stevie Nicks in a floor-length black velvet dress with gold embroidery. Kirke -- mom to daughter Rafaella, 2, and son Memphis, 7 weeks, with husband Michael Mosberg -- said she's able to juggle her career with motherhood by taking things "day by day."
Kirke was joined on the red carpet by costars Lena Dunham (in a Valentino jumpsuit), Allison Williams (in an Altuzzura ensemble with Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Fred Leighton jewels) and Zosia Mamet (in Moschino).
Dunham -- who created the hit HBO series -- said her writing is "a mix" of real life experiences and imagined scenarios. "Of course, the awkward, amusing and painful things that happen to you on a daily basis can't help but make their way in," she told Us. "But at the same time, as a writer, you have to use your imagination at least 15 percent of the time."
