Lena Dunham Covers October’s Marie Claire UK

I’ve been a fan of Lena Dunham’s HBO series ‘Girls’ since the show’s beginning, but have consistently been less than thrilled with Dunham’s recent forays into the fashion world (See: bleech). But with fame comes some kind of non-negotiable obligation to start splattering your mug all over the covers of magazines and dabbling in designer brands, so I guess Dunham’s October Marie Claire UK cover should come as no surprise.

So why does it bother me?

Maybe it’s that Dunham began her career from a foundation of conspicuous unconventional indie-ness — in terms of her work as a filmmaker, actress, and writer, as well as relative to the rumpled, thrift shop hipster style she originally projected. So there’s something about glossy, manicured, high fashion pictures like these that can’t help but ring a little false/hollow for me, if I’m being honest.

(ESPECIALLY that last one – the whole alluring windblown smokey-eyed starlet look brings on the nausea. Just me?)

(Also, WHY does she have to have her mouth flapping open in every photo? Is that mandatory and contractually obligated or something?)

ANYWAY. Yes, she looks lovely (as usual), and yes, she has every right to wear whatever she wants. I suppose I’m just a little disappointed that she so rapidly morphed from being this vintage/thrift dressing indie darling who seemed unconcerned with brands to BAM! Alexander McQueen and Kate Spade all up in heeeere! LET ME INSTAGRAM THAT SHIZ.

I know what you’re thinking. What did I expect, right? I know, I know.

What do you think of Lena Dunham’s transformation?
