From the explosive debut season of Girls to rocking a Miley Cyrus-inspired pixie cut and landing a mega money book proposal, it's safe to say Lena Dunham had a fabulous 2012, and this new year looks to be no different. On only this second day in January, we've discovered the writer/director/actress's photo shoot with Terry Richardson for the upcoming issue of V Magazine, which hits newsstands January 10 (just THREE days before the Girls Season 2 premiere for those of you who are counting down — and you should be).

Aptly named Time Magazine's coolest person of the year, Dunham takes the director's chair wearing a black Calvin Klein bodysuit and Manolo Blahnik pumps. Although there was a bit of controversy when Dunham appeared at an L.A. event wearing a turquoise top and what appeared to be a blatant lack of pants, we do not object to the leggy abstentia here. Throughout the photos, Dunham rocks the slinky one-piece, accentuating her gams and accessorizing with a cherry red Michael Kors coat and a mouthful of toothpaste.

Dunham has been making a name for herself in the fashion world, channeling Twiggy for Entertainment Weekly, strutting the red carpet at the Met Gala and landing the cover of i-D's December issue. So naturally, she gets to enjoy one of history's most highly-coveted celeb perks: FREE CLOTHES. On the gifted garb, Dunham says "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.” We wish we had that problem.

Dunham also dishes on her Twitter friendship with Taylor Swift (another avid avoider of the pants game) saying, "We have D.M.’ed. I’m a really big fan. I was like, ‘I just want to let you know that your albums have gotten me through a lot of very hard times.’" We take comfort in knowing Lena Dunham croons along to T. Swift's jams like we do, just with a higher probable frequency of pantlessness.
