Lena Dunham's 'Vogue' Short Shows Off Her Impossibly Charming Side
There's been quite a lot of hullabalooo around Lena Dunham's recent Vogue photoshoot — but Dunham's Vogue shoot wasn't just there for our own vast discussions, despite what it might have seemed like. As is proven by this accompanying short, it was also there so we'd get to see Dunham and Vogue's Hamish Bowles dance jigs while impersonating supermodels of yore.
I have to admit: I completely love with this video. Dunham in her perfect pajamas, wistfully angsting over which pose to use to best make her mark on Vogue? And then an entrance by longtime Vogue editor-at-large Hamish Bowles? And then a whimsical dance sequence? It's straight up Funny Face, and I am all over it.
I gotta say, this might be the most charming I've ever seen Dunham, and I say that as a longtime fan of her schtick (we went to the same college, so even though we've never met we're totes BFFs). It all fits rather perfectly into what Dunham said in her defense of the Vogue shoot once all that aforementioned hullaballoo started boiling over (emphasis ours):
And this short, for its part, is perfectly Dunham — the pronunciation of Pakistan, anybody? — but also, magically, perfectly Vogue. And it just works.
