Welp, it looks like someone‘s New Year‘s resolutions didn’t involve wearing more pants! Girls creator and star Lena Dunham has found herself bottomless once again, this time on the pages of V Magazine‘s latest issue as photographed by Terry Richardson. Obviously.
The corresponding interview (for those of you who still remember what “reading” is in the digital image-happy world that is the year Twenty-Thirteen) is filled with some lovely Lena bits–in addition to aforementioned lady-bits–which should help tide you over until Season 2 of Girls premieres on HBO January 13. Just a sampling:
On why the Great Depression made her appreciate well-fitting free clothes (except pants we’re assuming):
I cannot get over it. And they actually send them in my size. No one’s being an asshole and sending them to me in a 4. They’re sending me clothes, they fit, and what people should know is that I always wear them. Somehow even if I wouldn’t have bought it, the fact that it was free and my grandma’s depression-era mentality make me think it is the most beautiful thing I ever owned, and I wear it for several days straight.
On un-ironically liking Taylor Swift:
I sent her a message. I was like, ‘I just want to let you know that your albums have gotten me through a lot of very hard times.’ When I tweeted that her new album was amazing, every one of my Twitter followers was like, ‘I so hope that you’re joking.’ But I have no interest in liking anything ironically. If I wanted to be ironic, I’d grow a mustache.
On having her cake and eating a lot of it too:
Meeting actresses who such a big part of their job is about what they look like, I feel so lucky to be freed from that prison. I ate cake for breakfast on the day of the Emmys, I ate cake for dinner, my workout didn’t require Spanx, and I still feel like I looked better than people expected me to. It was amazing. I could feel the envy of every woman in the Sunset Tower.
In all seriousness, Lena looks adorbs and we’ve secretly cried to Taylor Swift too. Click through for more photos from the shoot, and pick up V Magazine on newsstands January 10 for the whole shebang.
