Evidently, it is Lena Dunham week!
According to Jezebel, who writes according to The New York Post, who basically speculates as a publication professionally, Lena Dunham is the most recent Chosen One to cover Vogue. She will apparently top the February issue which doesn’t seem all that unlikely given Anna Wintour’s heretofore effusive support of the prolific actress and friends. She was even at the premiere! In People-in-Prada Prada!
But why wouldn’t she support the Dunham, right? Doesn’t the former stand for the equal parts intellect, sincerity, humor and relatively recently fashion-savvy that Anna Wintour hopes Vogue as a magazine and lifestyle will evince?
The news is cool for a number of reasons, all of which really do revolve around the notion of Dunham’s “real girl” body and unconventional beauty. It is, however, also weird because Hannah Horvath.
I know, I know, it’s practically my moral obligation to divorce the actress from the act but…Hannah Horvath. When considering the rest of the highly fashion initiated hoopla circumventing the show (guest appearances by Jenna Lyons and potentially a future cameo care of Victoria Beckham), who *is* she anymore?
Whatever. I’m tired and jet-lagged and wearing this weird shade of red lipstick right now. Tell me what you think about the fact that Lena Dunham may or may not be on next month’s cover of Vogue and whether the implications of such are a. antithetical, b. null and void, c. potato latka.
