It's official! Lena Dunham will front Vogue's February issue. Our sister site Racked National revealed the Annie Leibovitz-lensed cover and rounded up some key quotes from the game-changing feature. Not one to shy away from designer shout-outs (she's given Insta love to Kate Spade Saturday, Vena Cava and West Coast's Welcome Companions), fashion-loving Dunham shared her affinity for one of LA's top denim labels.
Her taste these days is both exacting and eclectic. Often she wears Erdem, Marni, Miu Miu, Peter Jensen. "I've always loved Comme des Garçons; I've always loved Yohji Yamamoto," she says. "I'm into Charlotte Olympia flats. I really love a Prada bag because they always have one weird detail that you didn't think about. I always wear J Brand jeans because the waist is high . . . a low-cut jean is a problematic thing for me."
Someone needs to give her the keys to J Brand's DTLA Factory Outlet asap. Or better yet, CEO Jeff Rudes should ask her to host the opening party for the brand's first-ever standalone store.
