Lena Dunham's Emmy look may not have been a success -- partly due to bad hair and makeup choices -- but now we know what she's capable of from her pictures from the magazine of the British shopping website ASOS for Nov. She graces the cover and an inside fashion shoot - and she should hire the stylists behind these pictures -- hair, makeup, wardrobe -- for every time she steps out on the red carpet.
Obviously, this means Girls is a hit in the U.K., too.
She also does an interview in the mag that gives us clues into the mind of might be the most successful director/actress in her age group (26):
“…so many amazing things have happened in this past year, it was almost like amazing things overload…I wish these were slightly more spaced out so I could appreciate every single one with the correct amount of gusto and savor it as a memory until my deathbed.”
On shooting the pilot of Girls:
“Is this happening? I couldn’t believe the idea that I was going to get paid to do it. It was just so mind-blowing to me. I’d done things, but never on this scale so it was really trial by fire. I worked as hard as I could and sort of faked it until I made it.”
On the characters of Girls:
“I think it’s having heroines who are imperfect on television (of the show’s appeal) which hasn’t been allowed as much as it should be. Having girls who don’t look like every other girl on TV – even though I have beautiful girls on the show. It’s a mix of body types, complicated people and faces and attitudes.”
On growing up in NY and describing herself as a bit of a ‘weirdo’:
“I felt highly anxious in a way that I didn’t think other children were. I just wanted to be at home watching old Saturday Night Live reruns with my parents and trying to find the dirty parts of books.”
