Happy birthday, Lena Dunham! The director-writer-actress extraordinaire turns 28 today. Best known for creating the hit HBO show Girls, which catapulted her career, Dunham also directed, wrote, and starred in 2010′s Tiny Furniture, which earned her an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay.  The New York native’s comedic timing and knack for directing won the star a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Series, as well as a DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Comedy last year—and did we mention she was the first woman to earn that honor? Today, we salute our favorite girl by browsing her most memorable beauty moments through the years—adorable pixie included. Cheers!
