Lena Dunham is on the cover of a fashion magazine. And not just any fashion magazine, but the mother of all fashion magazines.

The girl who only days ago was on E!’s Worst Dressed list for her canary yellow Zac Posen dress at the Golden Globes is now on the cover of Vogue.

The “Girls” creator took to Twitter this morning to share the exciting news:

A mix of Woody Allen angst and Liza Minnelli chic — We like. Though, as one of the rare non-size-0 women to be featured on the iconic magazine’s cover, it would have been nice to see her actual body.

Hannah Horvath may forget to wear pants once in a while, but it turns out Dunham actually has some style secrets up her sleeve (and an Etsy addiction — celebrities, they’re just like us!)

“I’ve always loved Comme des Garçons; I’ve always loved Yohji Yamamoto,” she says in the cover story for the February 2014 issue. “I’m into Charlotte Olympia flats. I really love a Prada bag because they always have one weird detail that you didn’t think about. I always wear J Brand jeans because the waist is high… a low-cut jean is a problematic thing for me.”

We may not be on board with her awards show fashion track record (remember her dress from the 2013 Emmys?) but let’ take a moment to celebrate any normal-sized woman being celebrated on the cover of Vogue. Good one, Anna Wintour.
