can we talk about lena dunham's photos? even though it's terry richardson and i don't really watch her show,i do however find her ever-so refreshing as a figure in this industry. really enjoy that she always seems so comfortable in her own skin. they seriously should have put her on the cover if they wanted to do something less predictable.

^I guess it would be easier to talk about them if they were in the thread.

^^to me, she comes across as a Tina Fey wannabe...
the pics are very toned down for a TR shoot... the second pic is so silly imo, not even a teen could pull the expression off let alone a 26 yo woman. I think they could have done something more interesting.

I'm glad Lena didn't get the cover as the images aren't great.

I don't think she's a Tina Fey wannabe but she doesn't deserve half of the adulation she gets. I just think there have already been some incredible female writers and comediennes who have done more than she has when it comes to representing women and they for some reason don't get as much credit.

yet kristen stewart is more interesting??

but kokoboom,that's probably exactly why they are better as a TR shoot. i'm not saying that i'm a massive fan of her's or anything....i barely know anything she does outside that HBO show she does,which again,i never watch....i just find her attitude and disposition appealing. and if you're going to do overrated celebs,i would much rather see something a bit more different. and she's a bit more rough around the edges which works for V's aesthetic.

What's with the Lena hate? She's a clever, funny and widely talented young woman doing her thing. I much prefer an interesting person being featured than some random pretty actress.

^^the thing with those pics (are there more btw?) is that they not that different... she´s showing skin because it´s a TR after all but not that much because -I´m guessing and judging from the direction other publications take- she doesn´t have a model like figure. So she´s making a silly face that goes alongside a quote that rubs me the wrong way...

on a funny note that isn´t meant as an insult, her tongue is so weirdly shaped it freaks me out LOL

Marc10: I don´t think there´s "hate" going on here, I can only speak for myself of course but I´m commenting on the photography and the direction the magazine took this editorial. Unlike comments about Kristen Stewart´s when you only read stuff like "why her", "I´m sick of her being on magazines" and so on... so while it´s ok to hate on Kristen it´s not ok to talk about Lena? notice how nobody asked "why all the hate on Kristen?"...

^didn´t Faena already shoot a similar ed with Kate?
*edit* yeah the Muse editorial, I liked that one better. imo it "exploited" her charms in a more direct way than this one, all I can see here is ill-fitting clothes...

I think she looks good, the thing that bothers me is that the male model looks like he could be her nephew or something. I spy Kremi Otashliyska as the maid?
I like the lighting and the mood though

This is t he first time I can say I love Kate Upton in this edit, she plays the 50s bombshell so well and the styling is fab.
