Millennial it-girl Lena Dunham was recently photographed in NoMad for her Vogue cover story. Iconic photog Annie Leibovitz took the image featuring Dunham on the shoulder of actor Adam Driver crossing the street at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 25th Street.

Few stars are bigger than Dunham at the moment. The 27 year old writer, director and actress first garnered attention for her feature film “Tiny Furniture,” which earned critical acclaim despite its limited release. Two years later, Dunham premiered her HBO television series “Girls” which she writes, directs and stars in.

“Girls” has become one of the most talked about series of the past several years for its realistic portrayal of Brooklynite-20-somethings and their often unflattering lifestyles and choices. The series has won numerous awards including a Peabody and a Golden Globe for best musical or comedy television series, as well as earning Dunham a Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a musical or comedy television series.

The choice of locating the shoot in NoMad demonstrates how the neighborhood has become a hub for creatives within NYC and how it is catching the eyes of celebrities.
