The creator and star of HBO's Girls took part in an un-retouched photoshoot for The Lonely Girls Project.
In what we hope will continue to be a trend in the world of modeling, Girls creator and star Lena Dunham posed with her co-star and new mom Jemima Kirke in a photoshoot that's inspiring women in all its unretouched glory, wearing nothing but their skivvies.
Lonely Girls, a journal series that features photographs of women wearing lingerie in the comfort of their own spaces, is taking a stand against female objectification by portraying women in their underwear––but without the hyper-sexuality that's become the norm in advertisements and the media.
While the latest portrait series will be launching next week, a beautifully empowering sneak preview of Dunham and Kirke posing together offers us a glimpse of what the release will include.
In an effort to join forces alongside the battle against retouched images that continue to set unrealistic beauty standards for women of all ages, Lonely Girls and models like Dunham and Kirke proudly inspire women to be confident in their own skin by never digitally manipulating a single photograph.
The Lonely Lingerie's account director Sara Ganus described the brand as "...an unconventional approach," but we think it's fantastic.
"Lonely aspires to showcase women wearing underwear in a way that we usually don't see in mainstream advertising and the media. Instead of being objectified, the women who participate in this journal series—in this case, Lena and Jemima—are empowered and exhibit real beauty that will hopefully help women everywhere feel a little more liberated," Ganus said of the project. We couldn't agree more.
