With her cult-hit TV show, Miley-inspired chop, AND knack for knowing the ultimate beauty trends as they're happening, it's easy to say that Lena Dunham is officially having a moment. But helloooo, talk about the understatement of the century! Lena's fame is no flash in the pan, and we've got a feeling the New York filmmaker and actress isn't going ANYWHERE anytime soon. She's been killing the fashion scene as of late, turning out at the Met Gala, appearing in ASOS magazine, and now gracing the new issue of i-D. Fronting the December "Wise Up" issue, the Girls director and star shares the honor with THE one and only Grace Coddington (whose own winky perfect cover is also worth nothing). However, right now we're focused only on Lena, who looks totally stunning in an ASOS lip-print blouse, one eye covered by her fist...with her tat highly visible, of course. We always knew she was pretty, but something about her dark lashes, flushed cheeks, and reddish-pink lips take this natural beauty to the next level.
We're getting major retro movie star vibes from Lena's cover look (anyone else see the Natalie Wood resemblance?), and we love how despite all this eye-popping gorgeousness, the star still looks...well, like herself. Who knows, maybe less really IS more. In the meantime we're taking mental makeup notes for ourselves, and buying the new issue of iD when it hits newsstands this week!
