Girls creator and star Lena Dunham has made it big in the fashion world -- she's landed her first cover on Vogue for its February issue.

The cover -- shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz and released by Vogue on Wednesday morning -- sees a close-up shot of a wide-eyed, dazed Dunham in a Burberry spring 2014 collared polka-dot shirt, reflective of the glossy's glamorous profile while still embracing her quirky personality.

Rumors over Dunham's Vogue cover started last October when news broke that Anna Wintour had hosted a dinner for Dunham, followed by an appearance from the Girls actress at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event at the Chateau Marmont. In January, close sources told Page Six that Dunham would appear as the February issue's cover star.

While this is Dunham's first cover for the fashion bible, she actually first appeared in Vogue in 1998 when she was 11 years old, wearing a "Helmut Lang-inspired shift she'd sewed herself" and expounding on late '90s fashion: "I find Calvin Klein really hard to respect because he's everywhere. I view him as a clothesmonger."

Fast-forward 16 years, the star shares how she's still into fashion -- unlike her TV character, Hannah Horvath. "I've always loved Comme des Garçons; I've always loved Yohji Yamamoto; I'm into Charlotte Olympia flats. I really love a Prada bag because they always have one weird detail that you didn't think about," said Dunham.
