Girls star and creator Lena Dunham gets the ASOS treatment and she couldn’t be more suited to the brand.
Lena Dunham covers the November 2012 issue of ASOS Magazine and the new free app ASOS FASHION UP photographed by Danielle Levitt shot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC.
“…so many amazing things have happened in this past year, it was almost like amazing things overload…I wish these were slightly more spaced out so I could appreciate every single one with the correct amount of gusto and savor it as a memory until my deathbed.”
On shooting the pilot of Girls:
“Is this happening? I couldn’t believe the idea that I was going to get paid to do it. It was just so mind-blowing to me. I’d done things, but never on this scale so it was really trial by fire. I worked as hard as I could and sort of faked it until I made it.”
On the characters of Girls:
“I think it’s having heroines who are imperfect on television (of the show’s appeal) 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.”
On growing up in NY and describing herself as a bit of a ‘weirdo’:
“I felt highly anxious in a way that I didn’t think other children were. I just wanted to be at home watching old Saturday Night Live reruns with my parents and trying to find the dirty parts of books.”
We’ve had fights over her. No, really. Not serious ones, but we strongly disagree about her charms. Lorenzo joins that large chorus of people who can’t stand her, find her pretentious, and don’t think she warrants nearly the amount of praise and press she’s received. Tom thinks she’s a talented, thoughtful writer (but only so-so as an actress) and appreciates her role in defying the conventions of Hollywood, which hold very dearly the notion that girls who look like Lena Dunham don’t actually exist.

But we’re in agreement that she makes the perfect model for the ASOS brand style of street fashion crossed with conventionally pretty fashion. She looks really cute here, especially in that red dress.
