Her first-ever Vogue cover has hit newsstands across the US but Girls actress Lena Dunham is now facing fresh criticism that she has been photoshopped.

Fans aren't convinced that the actress' figure in the photos, which were shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, is the real deal.

Some claim Dunham's curvy figure appears smaller in some of the photos and some have hit out at the magazine for not featuring a full body shot of the 27-year-old on its cover, above right. Another report claims Dunham's arm looks to have been removed in one image.

It's not the first time a high- fashion magazine has been at the centre of a controversy for manipulating images of celebrities.

Glamour, GQ and Elle have also come under fire for digitally altering celebrities, with Mariah Carey, Kate Winslet and America Ferrera among the stars who have fallen victim to photoshopping.

The criticism surrounding Dunham's Vogue feature detracts from the actress' candid interview, in which she talked about striving to make women feel more "comfortable" about sex by depicting more realistic and sometimes awkward sex scenes in her award-winning series.
