Lena Dunham is on the mend!

As you may recall, back in November, the 29-year-old penned an intimate look into her painful struggle with what has now been diagnosed and treated as endometriosis — a disorder that causes the lining of the uterus to grow outside of the uterus. In March, the Girls star underwent surgery after having an ovarian cyst rupture.

Needless to say, it hasn't been an easy journey — but things are beginning to look up.

The event benefited the Endometriosis Foundation, and it's no surprise that the Girls creator was there, as she has publicly revealed she suffers from the condition.

The actress was looking healthy and glowing in a white blazer and cut-out top worn with blue and green print silk pants.

Padma and Allison kept their accessories to a minimum, and instead let their glamorous gowns do the talking.

The Top Chef host and Girls actress picked a backless silver shimmering number and a navy blue sheer long-sleeved lace dress, respectively.
