You know what they say, if it works, then swap the colors and shoot it again! Lena Dunham landed Elle Magazine's February cover, and her cover look is completely fierce, although slightly familiar.

Dunham, whose cover comes just ahead of the Girls season 4 premiere, smolders in high fashion for the shoot, and though no additional images will be released until Tuesday, we've got a sneak peek at the cover thanks to Instagram. Lena wore a red Saint Laurent top that was low cut with white polka dots, a leather motorcycle jacket, and smoldered for the camera with a smokey eye and windswept bright blonde hair. All in all, it's a pretty stunningly badass cover, but we can't ignore the fact that we've seen the Girls creator in a slightly similar ensemble before. As Fashionista.com pointed out, Dunham wore a white blouse with red polka dots for her Vogue cover. But I mean, she wears them so well, and the Vogue shoot was downright demure in contrast to the whole load of attitude she brought to Elle's cover. 

The actress' cover quote reads, "I came into this job being myself, so I'm free," a sentiment we all know and love Lena Dunham for, and if this cover is indicative of the rest of the shoot, it will be her best one to date.
