By now you’ve probably seen the Lena Dunham Vogue photo spread — shot, and allegedly altered — by famed photog Annie Leibovitz. And you’ve probably heard that Jezebel offered $US10,000 for the un-retouched images — and got them.
Jezebel then posted the before-and-after shots of Dunham in GIFs — pointing out every little tweak made by the fashion magazine, including what the Internet was dubbing a “stock image” pigeon atop Dunham’s head.

The magazine posted this to their Instagram account in hopes of clearing up any misconceptions — mostly about the pigeon, which was, in fact, alive.
“The Vogue pigeon. Any questions?”
