Lena Dunham models for ASOS!
A complete and utter Renaissance woman, Lena Dunham acts, writes, produces, and directs HBO’s hit show Girls—it’s no wonder she was chosen to model on the cover of ASOS magazine’s November issue.
Lena Dunham, only age 26, is “kind of a big deal.” She is an American filmmaker and actress. She wrote and directed the independent film Tiny Furniture in 2010, which won Best Narrative Feature at South by Southwest Music and Media Conference. She is currently the creator and star of the HBO series Girls, created in 2012. She was nominated for 4 Emmy Awards for her roles in acting, writing, and directing the series. Everyone from “hipsters to old ladies” tell her that she’s amazing. Someone even calls her the ‘Lebron James of life.’
For more recent Dunham news, on October 8 this year, she signed a $3.5 million deal with Random House to publish her first book, an essay collection called Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned.
On the front cover she is wearing a gray t-shirt, houndstooth skirt, cool arm candy, and a spiked headband. The shoot took place in little Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and photographed by Danielle Levitt. This new pixie-cut-and-read-lips-combo works really well for Dunham. She proves that you don’t have to be a size four to pull off risky or eccentric trends.
“I think it’s having heroines who are imperfect on television, which hasn’t been allowed as much as it should be. Having girls who don’t look like every other girl on TV, even though I have beautiful girls on the show. It’s a mix of body types, complicated people and faces and attitudes.” –Lena Dunham on Girls appeal.
I am in love with the show Girls and I’m not surprised in the slightest that others share my obsession. Girls is so refreshing and raw. Lena Dunham has been criticized harshly for her overweight and often exposed body on screen, but she is a great young adult role model for her list of achievements and a perfect example of a “average” body type—I’m recalling the image of Dunham eating cake, naked on the toilet during the opening video of the 2012 Emmys…which shocked a lot of viewers! She is gives the term “ballsy” a whole new definition and I love it! Seeing her on the front cover of ASOS makes me smile and want to give her a high five. I cannot be more excited for season 2 to start in January!
P.S. Dunham’s twitter is amazing!
