“Coolest Girl On The Planet” Lena Dunham Covers British “Marie Claire”

In an undoubtedly Brooklyn-themed photo shoot.

1. She has “changed Marie Claire’s world,” so the magazine’s new cover proudly pronounces.

Styled in a gown similar to the custom Erdem piece she wore to this year’s Met Gala, Dunham looks a little surprised by the accolade.

2. Here she is showing off her tattoos and meticulously constructed-to-look-unconstructed shaggy pixie cut.

Oooh and a big fluffy sweater!

3. She also wears florals.

And a lot of eyeshadow.

4. And posed on a dilapidated street corner that the bookings team definitely chose because it’s so “Brooklyn,” right?
