Allison Williams is the latest in a string of celebrity couples to pull off a top secret wedding this year… and we have to say, she did a very good job.

Even Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had a few paparazzi present at their July nuptials, despite going to excessive measures to keep things under wraps.

So how did Allison and her new husband, College Humor founder Ricky Van Veen, manage to get married in (relative) peace last Saturday? By setting up a decoy venue, of course.

News of Allison and Ricky's wedding plans leaked to the press last week, but even guests themselves weren't certain of the location until the last minute.

All attendees were told to fly into Denver, a 3.5 hour drive from the wedding's actual location at Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming.

In order to throw paps off the scent, a second decoy site was set up a few miles away by Allison's wedding planners, Rafanelli Events.

The high-end company also organised the weddings of both Chelsea Clinton and Matt Damon, so they're no strangers to A-list events.

Allison and Ricky's star-studded guest list reportedly included Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham, Katy Perry, John Mayer and Diane Von Furstenberg, with many guests flying to LA together the next morning for the Emmys.

Also present were Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, who plays Allison's on-screen mother in Girls. Tom even officiated the ceremony for the happy couple – how cool?!

Allison was walked down the aisle by her news anchor father Brian Williams, who recently returned to NBC following a suspension for reportedly fabricating a story about his experience in Iraq in 2003.

The Peter Pan actress admitted earlier this year that "current events" had forced her and Ricky to put their wedding plans on hold, something many took to be a reference to her father's suspension.


When Lena Dunham took to Instagram a couple of months back to tell the world she had realised exercise was a better cure for her anxiety issues than medication ever could be, we knew there were changes afoot for the actress/writer.

Now the Girls star has revealed that she's loving her fitness routine even more, after a friend encouraged her to go to a running training session. Posting a paparazzi photo of herself running through the streets of New York to Instagram last night, Lena wrote, "Not usually one to post a paparazzi shot but this fills me with pride. Basically my whole life I have hated running and run like a wounded baby Pterodactyl."

The actress said her fear of running was "embarrassing" and joked that she didn't trust herself to "escape a burning building or even move briskly towards a buffet." However when Girls' executive producer Jenni Konner suggested that Lena's character Hannah Horvath develop a love of running on the show, the real life Lena had to follow suit.

"@jennikonner is directing the season finale of Girls and decided that as Hannah evolved so would her run, so she got me a training session with Matt Wilpers from Mile High Run Club. Within an hour I had a different relationship to this formerly torturous activity. I felt strong, swift and proud," the actress wrote.

"I'm not about to embrace that triathlon life but it's a true joy to continue getting more connected to my body and its powers." 

Although she still maintains her curvy frame, Lena is looking fitter and more toned than ever, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the papped running shot. After all, how many of us can say we'd look that put-together in a candid shot of us running down the street in our workout gear?

As well as jogging, Lena is also an advocate of celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, and often works out at her New York studio, saying Tracy's workouts have shown her "the light."


With just over a month to go before the fourth series of Girls airs, we're getting a little ansty about what could be in store.

But a new promo for the season, released today, makes us wish we actually knew nothing at all. 

Most of the plotlines seem fairly innocent – Shosh trying to work things out with Ray, Marnie freaking out about everything and Hannah being, well Hannah.

As for Jenna though, certain clips from the promo would suggest that she's moving in on Hannah's turf with Adam. Check out the two of them looking super flirty at 32 seconds in! Jenna is also seen telling Hannah that "the heart wants what the heart wants." Does the heart want Adam?!

We'll have to wait til January to find out more, but for now we are very intrigued!
