In what would be seen as a dream come true for her GIRLS character, Hannah Horvath, WWD reports that Lena Dunham is 'in talks' with Condé Nast for the role of editor-in-chief of Glamour. If reports are true, Dunham will take the place of Cindi Leive who announced her resignation from the brand earlier this year after sixteen years as editor-in-chief.

While Condé Nast said the company "declined to comment on speculation," and a spokesman from Dunham's rep, Michael Cohen said: "There is no truth to this story," WWD reports that Dunham is just one of a handful of prolific media personalities being considered for the role. Other names shooting for Leive's prior title include Refinery29 editor in chief Christene Barberich, Man Repeller's Leandra Medine, The Cut's Stella Bugbee, Teen Vogue's Elaine Welteroth and Instagram's Eva Chen.

The rumours coincide with news this week that Dunham's weekly feminist newsletter, Lenny Letter is leaving Hearst Digital Media publishing house for Condé Nast (coincidence?) Business of Fashion report that the new partnership between Lenny Letter and Condé Nast is currently in its final stages.  

BOF has dismissed the rumour of Dunham's consideration for the role as 'unlikely', but crazier things have happened. Dunham has previously written as a contributor for Glamour, and has also written for Condé Nast's The New YorkerOne thing's for sure, if Glamour is looking for someone to uphold the brands feminist sensibilities and message of female empowerment, Lena Dunham is their girl.
