While Hannah Horvath might be HBO’s voice of our generation, Carrie Bradshaw was certainly the voice (or a voice) of hers. On Wednesday, Lena Dunham’s first Vogue cover was unveiled, and the accompanying spread features the actress and her Girls co-star, Adam Driver, posing together in a variety of quintessential New York situations. The editorial, shot by Annie Leibovitz, recalls a 2008 Vogue shoot the the photographer did with Sex and the City‘s Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth.
Carrie and Big’s spread is much more sexually charged (they’re making out in, like, every photo) and highlights uptown locales like Bergdorf Goodman as opposed to Hannah and Adam’s Brooklyn digs. Still, the spreads evoke that same “I love New York” feeling and reflect each TV relationship pretty accurately — well, at least in the good times. Also, we don’t think Dunham’s character would ever be caught dead in a feathered McQueen ensemble, but Vogue, after all, is all about the fantasy.
Which of the two spreads do you prefer?
