You won't be reading any complaints from us about Lena Dunham's new Glamour cover!

After causing a bit of controversy with her much-heralded Vogue cover, the "Girls" star looks gorgeous on Glamour's April 2014 issue- and you can see her from the waist up!

In the photo, the 27-year-old wears a sleeveless white and grey Rag & Bone dress that shows off the Golden Globe winner's famous arm and back tattoos.

A dramatic cat-eye glams up the ensemble while a sleek short bob à la Charlize Theron at the 2014 Oscars looks chic.

Short hair suits the director, who has a memoir coming out this fall.

"I have real hair impatience and I cut my hair off really short about a year and a half ago," she says in a behind-the-scenes video. "It was completely liberating. I felt more like myself than I ever had before. Now I'm kind of growing it out a little, working with a fifth-grade school girl look. But I'm sure I'll go back to it because having short hair is delightful and makes you feel incognito in a really cool way."

As for her Glamour photo shoot, the brunette cutie says she felt excited if a bit out of her element. "The experience of doing a fashion photo shoot is it's exciting," she says in the video, "because every girl likes to play dress-up and it's nerve wracking because lots of different people are looking at you and whispering to each other and it's a funny mix of feeling really proud that you're there and really like 'I don't do things like this, I should be home.'"

We're glad that Lena went out of her comfort zone to pose for this gorgeous photo shoot!
