The last few weeks I’ve been working on updating the website. I still have some photos to upload today and finish some details on the main, but as you can see we have a new design made by English Rain and a gorgeous header made by Kaleidoscope3. The header features photos from Allison’s photoshoot for L’Official Germany that you can check out here.
The official poster of the final season of Girls was released and you can check it out now in the gallery. Below you’ll find the official trailer. Remember Girls returns on February 12.
Allison Williams and the rest of the cast of ‘Girls’ grace the February cover of Glamour. The photoshoot was photographed by Emma Summerton.
Jenni Konner did an amazing interview that you can read here.
One of the amazing things about women is how quickly we adapt to change. No matter how weird or new things are to us at first—ankle-revealing dresses? the right to vote? Lady Gaga?—we eventually just absorb them, like drops in a stream, until memory fades and they join up with the continually flowing river that is progress. Which is why it’s kind of hard to remember that five years ago, when Girlspremiered on HBO, the world was a different place. Sure, single-gal shows like The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Murphy Brown had laid the groundwork for then 25-year-old Lena Dunham’s creation. But Dunham made clear in the first episode that neither her character, Hannah, nor Jessa (Jemima Kirke), nor Marnie (Allison Williams), nor Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) would be a Sex and the City fantasy: When chirpy Shoshanna tells Jessa, “You’re definitely like a Carrie, but with like some Samantha aspects, and Charlotte hair,” Jessa shoots her a look that just says: No. This show would be different.

The first official promo for the last season of Girls is finally here and just looking at it I can tell it’s going to be a great season. ‘Girls’ returns on February 12 on HBO.
Allison Williams, Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet are in the January issue of Vogue US. The article is about the last season of the HBO hit show ‘Girls’. It’s also mostly about Lena Dunham as she was interviewed for the article. Here I’ll post the parts that mention Allison.
It’s been nearly five years since viewers were first introduced to Dunham’s small-screen alter ego, Hannah, the 24-year-old would-be writer whose blithe narcissism was matched only by her crushing anxiety. She and her friends presented a no-filter snapshot of middle-class millennial malaise: There was Shoshanna, the manic naïf played by Zosia Mamet; Jemima Kirke’s Jessa, the proverbial free spirit who arrives two hours late to a dinner in her honor “wearing some fabulous blanket-y dress from a Grecian marketplace”; and Allison Williams’s Marnie, the responsible, Ann Taylor–suited barometer by which the others’ haplessness was measured, her frustrations with them often mirroring the audience’s own.
But just when one wondered whether the characters were doomed to drown in their own solipsism, the show began expanding. By the time it came to its critically acclaimed fifth season, the girls were going to places we, and perhaps even Dunham, never anticipated: Shoshanna to Japan; Marnie to Chinatown, barefoot and brokenhearted.
“Marnie and I started out pretty similar and pretty quickly started diverging,” says Williams, curled on a couch with her castmates in a Red Hook studio for their second Vogue photo shoot, “but there have been some incredibly clean parallels, like having two weddings in one year—one of which was a completely epic disaster and ended in a pretty speedy divorce and infidelity.”
The girls also featured in a photoshoot photographed by Norman Jean Roy. So far, there’s only one picture that you can find in the gallery. In 2012, when the show started the girls were also photographed by him in an article also for Vogue US. You can find that photoshoot also in the gallery.
We finally have the teaser for the brand new and last season of ‘Girls’. Allison is only in two scenes, but I can’t wait to see how Marnie has grown. ‘Girls’ returns on February 12 on HBO.
After days of teasers, today we were able to finally see the full film and I must say it’s a cinematic masterpiece, so beautiful. Allison wears a blonde wig in the film and gives a very solid performance for this short film for Prada directed by David O. Russell. The full 12-minute, black-and-white silent film was screened at a private event in Los Angeles this week and was released worldwide on Thursday morning.
Past Forward is a multi-platform short film collaboration between Miuccia Prada and American writer/director David O. Russell. Acclaimed for his films such as American Hustle, The Fighter, and Silver Linings Playbook, Russell imagined Past Forward as a “cinema poem,” a surreal, futuristic silent dreamscape with multiple actors replaying scenes in shifting combinations. The result is an unreliable story, a parallax view wherein the scenarios, characters, costumes, genres, and endings, repeat and morph, refusing the logic of conventional narrative. Russell creates characters as elements of a complex collage, the viewer is left to decode what is experience, what is memory, what is dream, and discern the overlap and differences between them.
Many congratulations to Allison Williams who received her very first Critics’ Choice nomination for her outstanding work this season in ‘Girls’ where she plays Marnie Michaels.
