girls-poster 2

Let’s all take a moment to check out the poster for Girls Season 3, wherein Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, and Jemima Kirke pose exaggeratedly in dramatic gowns, flanked by the two remaining men in the cast. It looks like Lena and crew ransacked a Wes Anderson set and then took up residence, self satisfied, for a quick photo op. Wait a second. Whose legs are those?


No seriously, Dunham has two legs coming out of her, but it took me a while to figure out if she and Kirke were oddly entwined or as the case seems to be, that the graphic designer tasked with doing this went ahead and just pasted in a Dunham-esque leg wherever it looked relatively appropriate.

And another thing. Why are all of the other female stars’ bodies pretty clearly visible, while Dunham hid under a circus tent and behind a chair? Could this possibly be an attempt at making us forget that God forbid, Dunham isn’t model thin? Here’s the thing, ordinarily I’d think no, they just put her in a chair just because. But shoots like this are so overthought that every single decision exists for a reason.

Quick question: is Kirke’s hair crimped? Oh I get it. It’s because she’s so alt. That’s probably why they gave her those beat up boots to mix with her evening gown, too. Well, I’m excited for season 3. Here’s to hoping they manage to keep all of Dunham’s limbs in tact.
