Allison Williams for InStyle's February issue

Allison Williams showcases spring's trends in February's InStyle

Allison Williams, star of Girls and our new favourite fashion pin-up, is InStyle's beautiful February cover star. 

Ahead of the new series of the hit show, which also sees a cameo from J. Crew creative director, Jenna Lyons, we met up with the 26-year-old actress to talk fame and, er, royalty.

'When I was younger I played Princess Diana,' Allison told us about her early days in the world of (school) theatre. 'I was in junior high school and I wore a blonde wig. I was obsessed with her.'

It's clear Allison still enjoys playing dress up, and she looks amazing in the must-have spring pieces from the likes of Burberry, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors. Here's an actress who was born to do ladylike chic.

Speaking about the enormous success of Girls, and its subsequent criticism, Allison said: 'It was like a tidal wave, and I knew at some point it would all have to come washing back the other way, that there was going to be an equal and opposite reaction.'

But it's clear she's still enjoying the ride.
