Vogue editor Anna Wintour wants to appeal to a younger, hipper audience, and she’s reportedly hoping Lena Dunham can help.
The fashion queen set up a “top secret, private dinner” to woo Dunham, according to Radaronline.com. There’s also a chance Wintour wants the “Girls” creator on the magazine’s cover.
“Anna is trying to seduce Lena into bringing her next-generation audience into the Vogue brand,” a source said. “And she’s willing to violate a lot of Vogue traditions to do it, including putting her on the cover even though she doesn’t really conform to the body type that Vogue has featured for most of its history.”
But Dunham wouldn’t be the only non-teeny-tiny woman to have graced Vogue’s cover. The British singer Adele was featured on the cover of the March 2012 issue.
