Los Angeles – Unless you’ve been living under a rock you should have heard about Lena Dunham’s Vogue cover Photoshop drama by now.

The ladies from the feminist website, Jezebel, threw all their toys out of their pram after Dunham’s cover hit the shelves.

They claimed Vogue put Lena on a digital diet and trimmed her size to fit their idea of a cover girl.

The website, that made its name protesting artificiality in women’s magazines, then put out a $10 000 reward for the original unedited images of Lena taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

But boy did it all backfire when the unedited pics showed minimal if any changes to Lena’s physique.

Even Anna Holmes, the website’s founding editor, said in an interview that she was “surprised” at what her successors had done.

Lena, known for her real girl image, stood up in defence of Vogue and said she never for one moment felt uncomfortable or bullied into anything. In the contrary she enjoyed the whole experience and loved the final product.

“A fashion magazine is like a beautiful fantasy. Vogue isn’t the place that we go to look at realistic women, Vogue is the place that we go to look at beautiful clothes and fancy places and escapism and so I feel like if the story reflects me and I happen to be wearing a beautiful Prada dress and surrounded by beautiful men and dogs, what’s the problem?

“If they want to see what I really look like go watch the show that I make every single week,” Lena said in a statement to Slate.

This short video we found on Vogue’s website made us smile and completely forget about Jezebel’s Vogue attack:
