The star appears on the magazine's February issue in a closely cropped shot, wearing a Burberry polka dot top with signature pixie cut in tact -- the whole effect is very '60s, with Twiggy makeup to boot. Shot by Annie Leibovitz, the accompanying editorial also stars Adam Driver ("Adam" on Girls). The duo appears in very Girls-esque scenarios, albeit much better dressed ones. In one shot, Dunham is hoisted onto his shoulders, in another, Driver lounges in a bathtub with Dunham perched on the edge. Funnily enough, this marks Driver's second time in the glossy, having first been featured in a shoot with Daria Werbowy for the September 2013 issue.
And, as it turns out, this isn't Dunham's first experience with Vogue, either. In 1998, an 11-year-old Dunham was shot for a story on fashion-savvy kids, which also featured a young (and braces-clad) Jemima Kirke. Despite attending the same school, Dunham didn't know Kirke at the time, but says that, thanks to the piece -- Dunham's photo was cut, and Kirke's wasn't -- she introduced herself at a school dance and the pair became friends.
So, in a weird way, we have Vogue to thank for Girls.
