How much would you pay to get your hands on the un-retouched photos of Lena Dunham by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz in the latest issue of Vogue? Women’s website Jezebel is willing to part with a cool $10,000.

Unhappy that the “Girls” star and creator’s “after” images in the magazine are airbrushed and Photoshopped, Jezebel (part of Gawker Media) apparently wants the “before” pics to see what Dunham really looks like.

We could ask why Jezebel would seemingly bait Vogue employees into stealing their employer’s property. But the real question is why would anyone need to glimpse the “real” Lena Dunham when we see all of her all the time? (Some would even argue that we see too much of her on her TV show.)
