In what’s clearly the most random casting news of the day, Girls star Allison Williams has scored the lead role of Peter Pan in NBC’s Peter Pan Live. To be fair, previous casting announcements have included Christopher Walken (as Captain Hook), so it’s clear the December 4 production is going for the unconventional.
The Girls star steps into an iconic role, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West can’t see eye to eye on giving North a sibling, and more entertainment news to wake you up this morning.
The Oscars are over and Paris Fashion Week is wrapping up, which means we can finally stop pretending the ridiculous contraptions worn by some the world’s biggest stars are soon to be “on trend.” Rihanna has been in the City of Lights all week, hanging out with Oscar winners and breaking out dozens of outfits that would make a marathon runner stop in his or her tracks. Her short hair looks great, the bold lip is on point, but she’s still had some missteps.
Does Allison Williams want to walk away from Girls to become a mom? Did Julia Roberts leave her half-sister to die of a drug overdose? What is Gary Oldman spilling about Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes?
Girls returns for its third season tonight, hopefully answering the burning questions of whether Adam (Adam Driver) and Hannah (Lena Dunham) are currently living in domestic, Brooklyn bliss, and how Christopher Abbott‘s sudden departure will affect Charlie and Marnie’s relationship. Despite sweetly reuniting at Roberta’s in the Season 2 finale, all good things must come to an end. And besides, break-ups and heartache work better for this group. Like many 20somethings, the female protagonists of Dunham’s HBO series have had their fair share of romantic misfires. For every adoring boyfriend who is willing to hold your just-worn retainer, there’s a creepy older boss who doesn’t know the difference between good and bad touches or that casual hookup who won’t text you back.
Today has proved to be a day of choices. Most important on that list has been which microwave popcorn to get in time for the Girls Season 2 premiere later today on HBO. The first episode’s called It’s About Time, and we agree with the title, because it really is about time that the show came back, because we’ve been missing it. While, the show gave us the gift that is Lena Dunham, we’ve also been wowed by her co-star, Allison Williams, who plays Marnie, this whole year. Allison’s not only gorgeous, with this enviable mane of chestnut hair and flawless skin, we’ve also kept an eye on her only to realize that she has some serious fashion cred as well. Props to her stylist, because Allison’s turn-out through 2012, uptil the present day, at almost every event, premiere or fashion show she’s turned up at has been sartorially stellar. And we love that she’s not afraid to throw on some color!
We’ve compiled a list of our top 15 best looks in the gallery below, gathered through 2012 up till now, January 2013. Don’t worry, in case you just have to know who she’s wearing so you can do some research of your own, we’re also put down the designer and the place she’s at in the captions. A couple of staunch favourites before you delve in. We’re in love with the sea-green, shimmery Naeem Khan gown she wore to the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York, back in November. The hot pink ladylike, but sexy, Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 ensemble worn to an Emmy pre-party is another killer. Oscar seems to be her go-to designer, because she also wore an emerald green by the designer to the Emmy’s and it was one of the best gown of the night, in our opinion. A red Stop Staring! cap-sleeved sheath worn to the New York premiere of The Master is also a fantastic pick. We’ll leave the rest to you. Do let us know what your favorites are? Keep an eye out for this lady. She’s only getting better and better.

Lena Dunham definitely isn’t shy, that’s for sure! The star of HBO’s Girls proved that during the opening sketch at the Emmys last week, where she appeared nude on a toilet eating a full cake, a first (we imagine) for network television. (Of course, she also proves this on her show, where she sheds her clothing on a regular basis). And now this past Saturday the actress/writer/director showed up at the L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade culinary event in Culver Studios without wearing pants! Taking a page from the Rihanna Style Guide, perhaps?
Lena wore a flowing teal button-down blouse and super cute polka-dot flats as she appeared on the red carpet next to fellow Girls actress Allison Williams. OK, there might have been some super tiny short-shorts underneath the shirt, but you could have fooled us! The thigh-high number was definitely daring, but left some wondering if it was more approps for bed time than a public event. Are you feeling her pants-free look, or not? Get a closer look in the gallery below, and then cast your vote in our poll!

Everyone looks forward to the grand retail extravaganza that is Vogue‘s Fashion Night Out. Held in approximately 19 countries across a week, the U.S — due to Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour‘s dictact — has their big night on the first day of Fashion Week. It’s a smart move because everyone’s in New York then, and those celebrities who don’t need to be there on day one, can enjoy FNO in L.A, the other fashion capital of the country. That’s both coasts taken care of! Hundreds of stores and designers providing special gifts with purchase and exclusive FNO merchandise, discounts and deals. NYC was swarming with stars yesterday for FNO special apperances. AnnaSophia Robb was Fekkai Mademoiselle, Nikki Reed and Kate Upton were at Michael Kors. Nikki looks super hot in a golden sequined dress, FYI. She was the best-dressed of the night! Kellan Lutz, Pharrell Williams and Matchbox 20 were at Bloomingdales. Allison Williams was at the DVF store, while Alexa Chung was at Moschino. Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian made the rounds too, of course. Kim’s little sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and her mother Kris Jenner were at the Beverly Center in L.A. along with Lucy Hale and Kendra Wilkinson, as well.
