Girl-who-doesn’t-like-fashion Lena Dunham finds herself inexplicably on another fashion magazine cover, wearing a ton of makeup and a Rag & Bone dress. She must be really confused and wondering how she got there.
“Girls” actress Lena Dunham covers the April 2014 issue of Glamour magazine in a Rag & Bone dress photographed by Tom Munro and styled by Katie Mossman
On beginning to date her boyfriend Jack Antonoff right after “Girls” debuted: “The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be. I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, ‘God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bullsh-t.’ It’s funny, ’cause in some ways that’s the conversation we still have when I’m upset [about stuff I read].”
On acting in the future: “I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore. I’m always relieved on the days I don’t have to. I’d rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts.”
On her artistic choices on “Girls”: “I want you to feel like you are getting lost with these characters. So I write long scenes. TV feels the least like life when it’s like two seconds here, then ‘meanwhile at this person’s house.’ I wanted to make a show that wasn’t as bright as other shows…I’ve always been incredibly attracted to pictures of my parents [the artists Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham] in the 1970s. That aged photograph palette seems to give an importance to their twenties. So I was like, I’d like to make something that shows my twenties through that beautiful soft-focus lens. Also, I get very fetishistic when I’m shooting the girls—especially Jemima.”

We tease because … we tease. She looks great. The clothes are especially well-chosen for her. That Prada dress borders on being a joke but she’s actually making it work. And the D&G just looks spectacular on her. Winged eyes and micro-minis with bell sleeves, Lena. They’re your friends. Put them in rotation.
