Whether you interrupted the Golden Globes on Sunday night to rabidly devour the season premiere of Girls or you've never heard of Lena Dunham and couldn't care less about a show centered on four twentysomething Brooklyn women, we'll venture to guess that most people would empathize with one of the show's major themes: being in your twenties can sometimes be as overrated as $14 artisanal carrots. You know you should be having "fun," dating lots of inappropriate people, trying out a variety of jobs/cities/romantic partners but a lot of the time, all that unmoored-ness just sucks. And, with little to compare it to, even the smallest mistake you make can feel like you've blown your one chance for The Best Thing In Life Ever. Thankfully -- in most cases -- that's not true. We had the chance to talk to some of the women we most admire in media, literature, art, fashion, food and comedy and hear about what they consider their biggest -- or most memorable -- twentysomething mistake. And, as you'll see, each of these ladies not only got past her youthful faux pas but also went on to kick some major ass in whatever career path she chose. Take note.
Mary H.K. Choi, Senior Editor at MTV Style
"I really wish I had written more when I was younger. I was such a fucking pill in my early twenties -- super judgey and uptight -- and it was a direct result from being scared and insecure about having moved to New York with no money and zero contacts. I learned everything I could about publishing and ended up being a pretty solid line editor at the small graffiti magazine where I worked but I was too clenched and crazy to just write and put things out there. It's ridiculous in hindsight because, ultimately, who gives a shit? But if I'd been more intrepid, I think I would've figured out what I wanted to do way sooner."

Jenny Johnson, Writer/Master Tweeter
"Right after I graduated from college I moved to Austin, Texas. Austin is an amazing city to live in, especially for a 21-year-old who is bound by nothing. It only makes sense that on my first night there I would go out and celebrate my arrival in the ATX with a group of friends. That night I made the not-so-wise decision to drink enough alcohol to kill a small horse. The details of my evening are a bit fuzzy but there were enough witnesses to inform me that during the duration of my night on the town, I jumped onstage and rapped with the Sugar Hill Gang, punched a guy in the face for grabbing my ass and doing that tongue-between-the-fingers thing at me, stole a loaf of bread and cold medicine from a house party, rolled my friend up in an area rug, puked in a Jack-In-The-Box parking lot, called 911 because I lost my keys, broke a window to get into my apartment and passed out in my bathtub with an uneaten hamburger on my chest. Drink wisely, kids."
Cynthia Rowley, Fashion Designer
"In my early twenties, I just moved to New York City, started making clothes, and was so broke. I did almost anything to pay the rent. (Picture whatever mistake you want here.)"
Gabrielle Hamilton, Chef/Owner of Prune and author of Blood, Bones & Butter
"In my twenties, I mistook meanness for intellectualism, and had this idea that if I had a razor-sharp wit, I would be perceived as smart -- like Dorothy Parker or H.L. Mencken smart. I could have been so much kinder to so many people."
Phaedra Parks, Attorney and star of Real Housewives of Atlanta
"I should have traveled abroad more and stayed longer and worried less about my career."
Lesley Arfin, Girls writer
"The biggest mistake I made in my twenties was that I cared too much about what other people thought of me."
Kim Hastreiter, PAPER Co-founder, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief
"I signed a lease on a horrible apartment on Carmine Street because I met a low-level mobster who said he could get me a rent-controlled apartment if I paid him 750 dollars in cash. I was desperate to find an apartment so I signed the lease and when I went back to look at it (after having paid three months' rent and security on it), I saw there was no lock on the front door, no kitchen and bullet holes in the apartment window and through the door. I called my father crying that "I made a big mistake" and so my poor dad had to come to the city, meet the mafioso landlord and appeal to him as "a father of a young innocent who made a mistake" to get me out of the lease. I never got the finder's fee back but the landlord was a father himself so he returned the three months' rent." [Photo by Dan Monick]
Erin Fetherston, Fashion Designer
"The biggest mistake I made in my twenties was being too hopeful that dead-end roads would magically lead somewhere. It took me a while to realize that when you hit a dead end, all you can do is turn around and forge a new path." [Photo by Billy Farrell/BFANYC.com]
Jing Liu, Architect and co-founder of SO-IL
"My biggest mistake was not putting 100% in everything I did while in my twenties. I procrastinated, sneered, contemplated and waited a little bit too long sometimes. Nothing is a waste of time in your twenties. Just do it."
Emma Straub, Writer
"Though I successfully dodged the Great Trucker Hat Disaster of the early 2000s, I did wear pre-distressed blue jeans and enormous basketball sneakers, both of which would have been horribly expensive had I not still been using my parents' credit card."
June Ambrose, Celebrity Stylist
"In my twenties I was jet-setting and building my company [but] I never imagined that I would have what I have now. Now I always think big and don't underestimate where I will be in 10 years."
Lynn Yaeger, Fashion Writer/Editor
"I wish that when I was in my twenties I wasn't always so worried about how I looked, how I measured up compared to other women my age, whether my clothes were good enough, etc. As soon as I got the courage to really go my own way -- and it did take a while -- the happier I became. Oh, and I wish I had started writing professionally a whole lot earlier than I did."
Jane Pratt, Founding Editor of Sassy, Jane and xojane.com
"When I was a couple of years out of college and just getting ready to start Sassy Magazine, I got invited by Maybelline, a potential advertiser, to a big beauty luncheon at Tavern on the Green. They also invited my 'beauty editor.' Since I didn't have one, I just brought one of my college housemates. When we got there, I moved the placecard for the Beauty Director of Mademoiselle to another table so that my friend could sit with me. My friend ended up sitting next to the President of Maybelline and the Mademoiselle editor was pissed. I didn't know you couldn't just do that." [Photo by Olivia Hall]
Kenya (Robinson), Artist
"My twenties were wrought with an adherence to the calculable, the predictable, the legible, the linear. This was certainly my biggest mistake. However unavoidable. I mean, how do you in fact gain wisdom, without taking your lumps. Especially since this whole personal evolution thing is more a product of actual experience than anything else, symbiotically connected to our ability to eventually break it all the way down, like the space continuum conundrums that inhabit the Star Trek Universe, or those Back to the Future movies. And so, to break it all the way down, my twenty-ish ego was a taskmaster. Hell-bent on doing the right thing. Going to law school, marrying some knucklehead that I had no business tying myself to, or relying on an established template of 'next'. Hallelujah, the Bored works in mysterious ways! In my twenties, I had no idea that my future could reside beyond my imagination (Willy Wonka?). As it was, The Future was a thing to be strategically mapped and planned for like a retirement package. Not to mention, fretted over. Every obstacle I encountered during that period was located on a horizontal track, a hurdle to be cleared, so that I could collect my Super Mario coin. In my thirties, however, it's been made clear that my perspective was all kinds of off; those obstacles were not impediments to forward movement, but rungs on a vertical ladder. Go figure. The monarchy of my life's plan made resistant to typical means of classification. A princess-empress-queen hybrid of simultaneous self awareness and acquiescence to the unpredictable rules and fuels my thirties life." [Photo by Ryan McCune/PatrickMcMullan.com]
Christina Tosi, Momufuku Milk Bar Chef/Owner
"In my twenties I wish I were a little less cocky. That's not to say I was ever egomaniacal or anything close to it, but I still hadn't shaken the teenage 'the world is my oyster and I know everything I need to know (you can't teach me a thing)' mentality. I was passionate and independent almost to a fault, certainly to a regret. I'd get into the hot-head-redhead zone when I felt someone wasn't working hard enough or good enough. I'd refuse to allow room for error or ignorance. I was in SUCH a rush to get grown, get further, get smarter, get more done, that I ended up most times looking like a lunatic raising my voice when I could have made my point more gracefully otherwise or choosing battles I could have let simmer out like a wiser woman in her thirties. God bless my twenties, they're why I am who I am today, but damn, I could have kept my cool a little more..."
Tig Notaro, Comedian
"Honestly, I can't think of a single regret that I have. Every horrible decision that I possibly should regret in life lead me to where I am today. It's difficult to feel anything but pretty great."
Jennifer Egan Talks Awful Temp Jobs, Writing from the Subconscious and Her Pulitzer Prize
This was a BIG week for theatre both On- and Off-Broadway! There are many Off-Off-Broadway festivals (the main one being Under The Radar at The Public Theater) happening with shows from all over the globe.

Bradley Cooper thinks he hot a perm for a screen test he had yesterday, saying "I got a perm today! Like rollers! Oh, yeah bro, like rollers in the hair!" So in reality, he just had rollers put in his hair. Still, kudos for talking about it! [via The Cut]
I'm mildly obsessed --and slightly confused by the logistics of -- these blazers with bands that Raf Simons showed at his F/W 2013 show. The show also features a Puss in Boots jacquard, by the way. [via Style.com]
Speaking of Raf: behold, the first images of the Raf Simons x Adidas collaboration. [via Selectism]

Karlie Kloss wants to go to Harvard! She also wants to major in business or medicine, telling The Daily: "I have always had an interest in medicine; my father is an emergency room doctor. Now that I am getting more and more involved in these entrepreneurial projects I think business is something that would also be fascinating. To have a better understanding of economics and business and the way to run a successful company." We love a woman with a plan! [via Fashionista]
East London's Rudimental scored a #1 single -- and Brit Award nomination -- for last year's "Feel the Love," and their debut album is coming out in February. Though the band's not in it, this video for "Not Giving In" is one of the very few that manages to tell a story while perfectly capturing the feeling and emotion of a song, and the director, Josh Cole, deserves the music-video equivalent of an Academy Award. The clip was shot in Manila and it's based on a true story about a world-champion breakdancer named Mouse -- he appears in the clip as the guy giving lessons to the young b-boy. Rudimental will be playing at Ultra in Miami in March. (Warning: This first minute of this video features a domestic abuse scene, so skip over that part if it's not something you wish to see.)
One more bit of info: The four guys in Rudimental have used various featured vocalists including Angel Haze, John Newman and Alex Clare -- who sings on this track. Alex was also nominated for a Brit Award this year for his hit single, "Too Close," and you can read PAPER's interview with him HERE.
We're all feeling the loss of Gossip Girl, the show which filled our hearts with headband-envy and an unwavering conviction that identities will always be mistaken at masquerade balls. Which is why we were slightly jealous when we found out that within weeks of the American version's finale, a Mexican version (literally titled Gossip Girl Acapulco, by the by) has been unveiled. When we did a little digging, we realized that the show has actually spawned a bunch of foreign remakes -- including a Chinese version, a Turkish version, and an anime version. But the Mexican version seems to be the one that most closely resembles the original show, and has by far the most transfixing head-shots. Scroll below to find out how the Acapulco cast compares to the original.
Serena Van Der Woodsen - Sofía Lopez-Hario
Sadly, the "Serena" character seems to be the one that producers tried the hardest to re-create exactly. But will Sisniega nail Blake Lively's signature twenty-pieces-of-gum-in-my-mouth mumble? Ohhnley tahmm whell tall.
Blair Waldorf - Bárbara Fuenmayor
Chuck Bass - Max Zaga
We actually feel like this a pretty damn good Acapulco-fied vision of Chuck's style and look, a summer twist on the New York version's luxe, usually dark-hued blazers and neckties (with perfect hair to match). And we've gotta give Vadhir points for the pout. Still, we wish they'd done a literal translation of his name and gone with "Carlos Róbalo."
Dan Humphrey - Daniel Parra
Diego Amozurrutia looks a little too smiley and "on" for Dan, who is human Ambien.
Nate Archibald - Nico de la Vega
Speaking of Ambien, Nate has always bored us. The actor who plays Nate similarly bores us (and is American, BTW) so that's a wash.

Try to imagine a more gentle and innocent time. Think about courtship before GRINDR or BLENDR, before Te'o and his imaginary girlfriend. Do you remember "Telephone Love" by J.C. Lodge? "You sound so sweet on the line, you make my day every time." It was one of the first dancehall reggae songs -- a more "digital" type of reggae that became popular in the early 80s -- to cross over to hip-hop and R&B radio here in New York in 1988. The video is pretty minimal but the beach/bikini vibe looks good on a cold day. Also, check out the "watermelon" phone around 3:05.

Oscar de la Renta will be hosting John Galliano at his studio for the next few weeks, which marks the first time Galliano has really been publicly involved with fashion in a few years. It's not clear what he's going to do there (most are interpreting de la Renta's invite as a gesture) but he had this to say: "I am an alcoholic ... I have been in recovery for the past two years...I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the familiar surroundings of a design studio...His support and faith in me is humbling." [via The Cut]
Betsey Johnson, on kids these days: "When I was growing up there were no initials. Now I've been told that I have the ADD and the XYZ and whatever." We love her. [via Fashionista]
Because Sarah Burton is pregnant (with twins, by the way), McQueen will have a small presentation -- not a runway show -- for Fall 2013. We'll miss the drama. [via The Cut; photo via Style.com]

The Sundance Film Festival kicked off in Park City yesterday and, amid the hundreds of actors, directors and producers in attendance for their work, here are fifteen we think you should have on your radars.
Lake Bell: While Lake Bell has quickly made a name for herself as an actress by playing uptight fauxhemian Rachel Chapman on How to Make It In America, awesomely twisted Dr. Cat Black on Children's Hospital and a trophy wife in It's Complicated, she's about to start building her reputation as a director when her feature-length directorial debut premieres at Sundance. The film, In a World..., also features Bell in the lead role as a struggling vocal coach who -- inspired by a father known as "the reigning king of movie-trailer voice-over artists" -- decides to make a career change and go after voiceover work. The flick also features comedians Demetri Martin and Michaela Watkins and her Children's Hospital co-stars Rob Corddry and Ken Marino.
Dane DeHaan: Dane DeHaan has already taped arcs on cable dramas True Blood and In Treatment, and had an unnamed role in Lincoln, but will be hard to avoid this year with parts in thrillers The Place Beyond the Pines (with Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper) and Devil's Knot (with Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth). Next year, he will replace James Franco as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But first: he's headed to Sundance in Kill Your Darlings, a film that sees him starring against Daniel Radcliffe's Allen Ginsberg (another former Franco role!) as Beat writer Lucien Carr, who was convicted of killing an elder admirer.
Skylan Brooks: The adolescent Brooks leads a cast that includes Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright, and American Idol alumnae Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks as "Mister" in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, a summer-in-the-city adventure story soundtracked (and executive-produced) by Alicia Keys.
Shareeka Epps: Most people know Epps from her starring role alongside Ryan Gosling in Half Nelson and the actress has grown up quite a bit since then. You can next see her playing a girl who's pregnant with a child that is not her boyfriend's in David Andalman's 90s-era coming-of-age tale Milkshake (see above) and we think she's someone to keep your eye on in 2013.
Scoot McNairy: If you made it into a movie theater this fall/winter, chances are you saw Scoot McNairy on the screen. With key roles in Argo, Killing Them Softly and Promised Land, the actor is on the verge of becoming a household name and his role in Lynn Shelton's latest film, Touchy Feely, may be the final tipping point. Though details on his character are surprisingly scarce, the movie itself centers on a quirky enough premise: Rosemarie DeWitt plays a massage therapist who spontaneously develops an aversion to physical contact, which causes major problems at her job and in her relationship. At the same time, her emotionally catatonic dentist brother starts seeing an influx of patients after word spreads that he has a "healing touch."
Alicia Van Couvering: Having produced such Spirit Award-friendly flicks like Lena Dunham's Tiny Furniture, Junebug, Todd Solondz's Palindromes, Ry Russo-Young's Nobody Walks and Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress among others, Alicia Van Couvering is definitely and independent producer to watch. This year, she's headed to Sundance for The Apocalypse, a film short directed by Andrew Zuchero and starring Martin Starr about a group of bored friends that suddenly stumble upon an awful way to end the monotony (hint: it involves exploding body parts but that's all we'll reveal). You can watch the short HERE. [Photo by Owen Hoffmann/PatrickMcMullan.com]
Danai Gurira: Danai Gurira has been everywhere lately, what with roles in Treme and The Walking Dead, and now she's getting back in the movie biz with a lead role in the drama Mother of George. Directed by Andrew Dosunmu, who has worked as a photographer and creative director at YSL, the film revolves around Gurira's character Adenike and her struggle to conceive a child as well as adjust to the differences between life in Brooklyn and life in Nigeria following her marriage.
Filmmakers behind 99%: The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film: Aaron Aites, Audrey Ewell, Nina Krstic, and Lucian Read are all credited as directors on this documentary, which, in true horizontal fashion, draws on supporters across the country for both footage and (via Kickstarter) funds. Aites and Ewell previously made the 2009 black metal doc Until the Light Takes Us; Krstic and Read both have experience in documentary TV.
Kaya Scodelario: Fans of the original British version of Skins might recognize Kaya Scodelario for her role as Effy Stonem, the troubled younger sister of Nicholas Hoult's Tony Stonem and, later, a central figure on the teen soap series. Now the young actress might make a few more fans stateside, thanks to a leading role in Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, in which Scodelario plays a young woman who begins a friendship with a neighbor that eerily resembles her deceased mother. Directed by Francesca Gregorini and co-produced by Rooney Mara and Tatiana Von Furstenberg, the film also stars Jessica Biel and Alfred Molina.
Miles Teller: Even if you've never heard his name, get used to it because you'll be seeing quite a bit of Miles Teller soon. His starring role in Sundance film The Spectular Now as a popular -- but alcoholic -- high-school guy with no plans for the future who becomes involved with a less-popular classmate played by Shailene Woodley, is joined by a smattering of roles in films like Get a Job, 21 And Over, Two Night Stand, and Are We Officially Dating?, making him poised to be the next go-to guy for college flicks and buddy comedies.
TeQuan Richmond: Having played younger brother Drew Rock on Everybody Hates Chris for five years, the 20-year-old Richmond tries something else entirely in Blue Caprice, playing Lee Boyd Malvo, a perpetrator, along with John Allen Muhammad (Isaiah Washington), of October 2002's Beltway sniper attacks.
Casey Wilson: Wilson is one of our favorite women in comedy, seeing as she's responsible for some of the best one-liners and catch phrases from Happy Endings. It looks like she's about to make us cackle again as Chloe in Ass Backwards, a comedy that centers on two best friends who take a cross-country trip back home in order to win a beauty pageant that they lost when they were children. We hope there's a Honey Boo-Boo cameo.
Zal Batmanglij: After 2011's Sound of My Voice, director Zal Batmanglij (brother of Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij) teams up again with Brit Marling on his sophomore feature, The East, a film centered on an ex-FBI agent's infiltration of an anarchist collective that is thought responsible for a spate of attacks on high-powered corporate CEOs. In addition to Marling, Batmanglij has enlisted Alexander Skarsgård, Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson, Shiloh Fernandez and Toby Kebbell to round out his psychological thriller. And, with Ridley Scott tapped to co-produce, we bet the young director will quickly start adding more credits to his name.
Michael B. Jordan: At only 24-years-old, Michael B. Jordan has appeared on three critically-acclaimed TV shows -- The Wire, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood -- and his upcoming starring role in Fruitvale might finally cause people to associate the moniker with more than just basketball. In the film, which is based on true events, Jordan plays a young Bay Area man who was shot to death by BART officers at the stop that lends its name to the movie title. Directed by 26-year-old Bay Area filmmaker Ryan Coogler, the film also stars Octavia Spencer, Ahna O'Reilly, Chad Michael Murray, Kevin Durand and Melonie Diaz.
Hannah Fidell: Fidell wrote, directed and produced A Teacher, her debut feature about a teacher-student affair in suburban Texas, that reunited the director with Lindsay Burdge, the star of her 2010 post-grad mini-feature We're Glad You're Here.
New York Fashion Week might be a few weeks away, but in Milan, fashion has already turned to the Fall 2013 collections. PAPERMAG photographers Pierguido Grassano and Anzhelika Ardasheva bring you some of the beautiful faces on the runways in Italy this week.
