It appears my favorite sassiest and most "illustrated" resident of the Plaza Hotel is finally getting her own documentary, and at the helm is none other than Girls star Lena Dunham.

The Vogue cover girl recently revealed that she will be working alongside Girls co-writer and executive producer Jenni Konner on a documentary about Eloise  illustrator Hilary Knight. An american illustrator, Knight became a household name in the literary world when he began illustrating a book series for Kay Thompson about a little girl with a BIG personality. I have always been such a huge fan of Eloise, and if Knight's self-portrait is any indication, it appears these two fierce artists share more traits than just their love for pink.

As if that didn't send my femme heart aflutter, the pair will also be working on an HBO series based on infamously opinionated Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper Betty Halbreich. No word yet on release dates but let's hope it's sooner rather than later!
