Star of Girls, one of our favorite new shows and three times Emmy nominee Lena Dunham is the new covergirl of Asos. Accompanying November edition is launch of the new free app ASOS FASHION UP. For more about that exciting new step for the brand as well as a peek into Lena’s interview continue after the jump:
On Success: “…so many amazing things have happened in this past year, it was almost like amazing things overload…I wish these were slightly more spaced out so I could appreciate every single one with the correct amount of gusto and savor it as a memory until my deathbed.”
On shooting the pilot of Girls: “Is this happening? I couldn’t believe the idea that I was going to get paid to do it. It was just so mind-blowing to me. I’d done things, but never on this scale so it was really trial by fire. I worked as hard as I could and sort of faked it until I made it.”
On the characters of Girls: “I think it’s having heroines who are imperfect on television (of the show’s appeal) which hasn’t been allowed as much as it should be. Having girls who don’t look like every other girl on TV – even though I have beautiful girls on the show. It’s a mix of body types, complicated people and faces and attitudes.”
On growing up in NY and describing herself as a bit of a ‘weirdo’: “I felt highly anxious in a way that I didn’t think other children were. I just wanted to be at home watching old Saturday Night Live reruns with my parents and trying to find the dirty parts of books.”
