glamourAllison 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.

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.

Like I said in the previous post, I was away for a few months and I missed some events Allison attended and also some old photoshoots I needed to update. Here’s the first part of the major update as now the gallery is complete with 2016 so far.

However, I will update previous years this month as finish the screencaps of Girls previous seasons.

Unlike Marnie, the snarky, entitled millennial with a penchant for eye rolling, who she’s played for five seasons on the zeitgeist-capturing HBO series Girls, Allison Williams, 27, is personable and charming. “People assume they’re going to hate me when they meet me, and I’m delighted to report that they don’t all hate me,” she says with a self-deprecating smile and gentle laugh. “Marnie’s cold, so they assume I’m going to judge them or talk sh*t about them.”

On the contrary, the New Canaan, Conn.-bred, Yale-educated daughter of newscaster Brian Williams is quick-witted, thoughtful, easy-going, gracious and kind. She’s a fixture on the red carpet, where she radiates in head-turners from the likes of Ralph Lauren, Dior, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and Joseph Altuzarra (whose sheer dress she rocked as his date to the 2013 Met Gala). But when we meet at Fika, a coffee spot a few blocks from Williams’ Manhattan apartment, she’s dressed down in Pilates-ready athleticwear from Outdoor Voices, Lululemon and online retailer Carbon38, and a sweater from technical cashmere company Kit and Ace. “I am the paragon of high fashion today,” she jokes between sips of a double espresso with almond milk. “I’m wearing cartoonishly large black UGG boots, which I was recently paparazzi’ed in while taking my dog, Moxie, out first thing in the morning. That should be illegal. I was wearing pajama pants and [was] just so tired.”

When Allison Williams married CollegeHumor founder Ricky Van Veen last September, her friends and Girls costars — Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet, and Jemima Kirke — were all in attendance. “It was really fun to have these girls there and to be actual supportive adults,” Williams tells EW. Her character, Marnie, gets married in the season opener of Girls on Feb. 21 — taking controlling bride to new hilarious heights — but Williams says her nuptials went very differently. “I was a very different bride than Marnie. Thank God. I think a lot of people showed up to my wedding expecting more Marnie than they got.” 

Dunham backs this up. “You were so chill, and I have to admit I was expecting you to be more … concerned about people’s whereabouts and activities. But you were really ‘live and let live’ about the whole thing.” The wedding took place on a ranch in Wyoming where the weekend activities included fly-fishing, horseback riding, and a ropes course. (Mamet opted for the horseback ride while Dunham and Kirke tackled the ropes course.) Tom Hanks officiated and Rita Wilson, who plays Marnie’s mother on the show, gave some free marital advice. Says Mamet, “She said my favorite thing about marriage that anyone has ever said, ever: ‘Same bathroom, different toilets.’

Williams laughs and says that Wilson also gave her the very same advice. “You need to be able to talk s— while looking in the mirror at each other, but you gotta poop in different places,” she says. “Let me tell you, Rita knows everything about everything.”
