Lena Dunham Is On The Cover of Vogue
Here’s the cover:
Aside from giving us a total Woody Allen vibe, it is just head shot. But still, when was the last time a “normal” size person was on the cover of Vogue? Back in October, we reported that Vogue‘s High Priestess, Anna Wintour, had set her sights on the 27-year old award-winning actress/writer/director to pose for the haute couture glossy.
Wintour’s attempt to reach a new audience seems sort of transparent to me, but perhaps Lena’s acquiescence is an opportunity to expand our definition of the beauty role model. The fashion industry has a poor history of accepting beauty that does not fit a certain unrealistic “ideal.” But maybe this is a step in the right direction. What say you?
