“Mozart in the Jungle” star Lola Kirke is gracing the cover of the Village Voice’s first fashion issue in 60 years!
The issue, edited by style journalist Andrea Linett, includes a candid interview with Lola about art-world identity and feminism, as well as a look at the upcoming fashion season, a guided vintage-shopping tour and more.
In the interview, Lola, whose sister Jemima stars in “Girls,” talks about feminism and television.
“I think that re-evaluating the way that we represent women in movies and TV is a huge part of being a feminist now,” she said, adding, "It’s a complicated time to be a feminist. And I’m just grateful to be on a show that’s interested in exploring that.”
Kirke, 25, also discussed her own style and past influences, "I remember, as a kid growing up in the shadow of really stylish, beautiful women, really just trying to adopt exactly what they wore and thinking that if I did, I’d be magically endowed with their characteristics. Other women, their clothes just excited me. Everyone I modeled myself after was pretty unique. And then I shattered that uniqueness by copying them.”
