She’s not unattractive. It’s just that this need on the part of media hipsters to turn Lena Dunham into a supermodel demands trolling. Really, Huffington Post?
The much-anticipated cover photo was released by Vogue on Thursday morning, highlighting the “Girls” creator in a gorgeous close-up shot. Snapped by photographer Annie Leibovitz, the image is soft and flattering but also as quirky as Dunham herself — no typical bedroom eyes or smoldering scowls here.
Outside of pudgy liberal Millennials living in Brooklyn, no one was waiting with baited breath for the moment that Lena Dunham appeared on the cover of Vogue. She’s a mirror for a generation of plain white narcissists living in a pretend world located somewhere in New York.
That’s a dissertation waiting to be written.
