'Girls' creator Lena Dunham lands the cover of Vogue's February issue

Lena Dunham has been crowned “The New Queen of Comedy” by Vogue.

The creator and star of Girls appears on the cover of the fashion magazine’s February issue, which hits newsstands on January 28.

“Since Girls launched in 2012, the 27-year-old Dunham has become to comic television roughly what Bob Dylan was to sixties folk,” writes Nathan Heller, who later calls the actress “a model of industry.” Heller shadowed Dunham on the set of her HBO show during filming of season three and later visited her Brooklyn Heights apartment, which he describes as “concertedly unostentatious.”

The cover story also addresses the way Girls confronts the issue of sexuality and, by extension, nudity. It’s a topic that caused the show’s producers to go into a ‘rage spiral’ after a journalist asked Dunham why her character “is often naked at random times for no reason” during a panel at Television Critics Association press tour last week. Zosia Mamet — who plays the youngest member of the Girls foursome — tells Heller of Dunham’s nude scenes; “She’s not being naked just for the sake of being naked.”

Rumors of a Dunham Vogue cover have been circulating since last fall, but this isn’t her first appearance in the fashion monthly. READ FULL STORY

'Girls': Costume designer Jen Rogien on the new styles in season three


Though much ado has been made about the nudity on Girls, costume designer Jenn Rogien promises there are plenty of fully-clothed fashion moments to look forward to in season three.

“I will definitely say that each of the girls finds themselves in circumstances that force them to grow a little bit. I’m trying to keep up with that in their wardrobe choices,” Rogien told EW. “[The characters’ aesthetics are] a reflection of the choices they made in season two, how those decisions start to play out and the consequences.”

Rogien dressed a slew of season three guest characters (including Felicity Jones, Melonie Diaz, Jennifer Westfeldt), but it was J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons — who plays Hannah’s new boss — that had the costume designer feeling star struck. “It was one of the highlights of the season for me to get to meet her because she’s one of my personal icons,” Rogien said, adding that Lyons brought her own clothing options to set. “I wouldn’t dream of trying to suggest to Jenna that she dress in a certain way. She came with amazing, amazing choices and ended up wearing almost all of her own wardrobe on the show.”

Rogien, who is also the costume designer for Orange is the New Black, was also excited to dress Danielle Brooks (Orange‘s Taystee) for her guest spot on Girls. “Her character is complicated and funny and sad. It was fun to put her [in something different].” Speaking of Orange, which is currently in production on season two, Rogien said; “They do still wear orange and khaki quite a bit, but there are some pretty amazing flashbacks that I’m really excited about. We travel into different time periods to see the characters’ backstories.”

Fashion Face-Off: Who was best dressed at the 'Girls' season 3 premiere? -- POLL

Not even the approaching polar vortex could stop the girls of Girls from showing some skin at the season 3 premiere in New York City tonight.

And with the exception of Zosia Mamet, each of the ladies stayed true to her signature style.

Jemima Kirke’s vintage ivory satin Geminola dress had a definite boho vibe, Lena Dunham sparkled in a sequined frock from Rochas — and experimented with smoky eye makeup — and Allison Williams was every inch the ingenue in Dior. The usually eccentric Mamet chose to keep it simple in a little black Saint Laurent dress and gold accessories.

Trendy or trashy? Jemima Kirke's see-through CFDA Awards dress -- POLL

When it comes to dressing for the red carpet, Jemima Kirke is, like her Girls character Jessa Johansson, fiercely bohemian. At last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City, Kirke stood out from the label-draped fashion pack in a long-sleeve, floor-length see-through black dress.

Internet fashion critics gave the mother of two — who proved she doesn’t shy away from sheer when she modeled a see-through wedding dress earlier this year — the thumbs down for her ensemble, which People StyleWatch described as “goth beach apparel.”

The FUG Girls expressed tongue-in-cheek gratitude to the actress, writing “Oh, Jemima Kirke, thank you. THANK YOU. You have brought laughter and joy into my home this morning. You are like Stephen Colbert: You just made me laugh so hard that I snorted Croissan’wich up my nose…”

Is Jemima Kirke’s look just too cool for the old school style set or was it an inappropriate choice for a black tie affair? Click on to cast your vote.  READ FULL STORY

'Girls' star Jemima Kirke kisses a girl in a new bridal fashion ad

That’s so Jessa.

Judging from the photos of Jemima Kirke in the Stone Fox Bride spring 2013 lookbook, it seems the actress is as uninhibited as the character she plays on the HBO series Girls.

Kirke and jewelry designer Pamela Love, both wearing minimalist boho bridal gowns from the label, are pictured as a same-sex couple locked in what appears to be a passionate post-nuptial embrace. (The lookbook also features a male couple dressed in lacy frocks.) Kirke also models solo, wearing nothing underneath a see-through dress called “The Jemima.”  READ FULL STORY
