By now, some of you, loyal A-Gentees, will know how much deference and slight adoration A-Gent of Style feels toward Hamish Bowles – the uninitiated ones can find out for themselves here, here and here. A-Gent of Style was this close last week to meeting Vogue’s fabulous International Editor-at-Large at the heartfelt David Collins tribute and had just about mustered the courage to introduce himself…
until Mario Testino walked past him and trumped him. Le grand sigh.

But, A-Gent of Style found great solace and comfort the day after by coming across Vogue’s latest Original Shorts film featuring the English dandy Editrix himself
and ‘Girls’ rising star Lena Dunham.


In an atmospheric video called ‘Cover Girl’ posted by Vogue.com, the red-lipstick, silk pyjama-clad “Girls” star is portrayed as practising sexy poses in front of the mirror in preparation for the photo shoot of the Vogue’s February cover the following day.
Lena Dunham is a woman of many talents but modelling is not one of them. Consequently, she seeks the help of Monsieur Bowles on how to pose and pout.
The dapper fashionista sporting a tuxedo comes to the gauche comedian’s rescue and takes her through fifty years of iconic images showing legendary poses by models ranging from Kate Moss (“romantic, dreamy, ethereal”), Cindy Crawford (“crazy, athletic Amazon”), Veruschka (“hieroglyphs”) and Twiggy (“pigeon-toed, goofy”), which the pair dutifully perform to the soundtrack of a Jazz Age track
in the Rita Konig-esque Manhattan apartment decorated with a floral and lattice-shaped antique wallpaper by Second Hand Rose, a leopard print carpet by
ABC Carpet & Home and D.Porthault bucolic bed linen.

The result has great panache, style and fun. I hope you agree!

The final shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz features the 27-year-old star trussed up in everything from Prada, Alexander McQueen, Céline and
Dolce & Gabbana, who chooses one particular wide-eyed expression to emulate for her cover photo. You will know by now who she Chanel-led.

'I think I'm starting to get the hang of this.'
