It was confirmed last week that Girls star Allison Williams (aka Marnie Michaels) is engaged to her boyfriend Ricky Van Veen. We know, we know, what a name. Allison's rep confirmed to People Magazine that the pair are getting hitched. Last night at the Vanity Fair Oscars party Allison flashed her HUGE engagement ring on the red carpet. It was the perfect accessory to her bright pink Emilia Wickstead gown.

So what about the ring? Diamond expert Vashi Dominguez reveals to Grazia Daily: 'Ricky Van Veen has spoiled Allison Williams with a 3-stone engagement ring with a round cut radiant centre stone, plus two side baguette stones. Although the public are yet to see hugely detailed pictures of the ring, the centre diamond looks to be around 3 carats, which would mean the ring’s retail worth would be around £100k. A true show-stopper! The ring is elegant in style and the baguettes give the ring an art deco flair. This sleek engagement ring style demonstrates the old is again becoming the new.'

The shiny-haired actress told Glamour earlier this month that family is big on her bucket list: 'I'd love to be a mom – and not have to bring my kids into my trailer … Or a balance [of both]. But you've [got to] call it on the fly to a certain extent.' An Allison Williams wedding is just as exciting as the upcoming Olivia Palermo nuptuals. Will Lena Dunham be her maid of honour? Will she have Shoshanna, Hannah and Jessa as bridesmaids? But the really important question is what about the dress?

We have trawled through the latest looks from the likes of Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang to find a dress worthy of Allison Williams. She is often compared to our own Kate Middleton - it has a lot to do with that bouncy blow dry. She played the Duchess in Will & Kate: Before Happily Ever After on Funny or Die. So will she be inspired by the Royal Wedding and go for a traditional sleeved lace number? 

She could go for the sheer lace Chanel Haute Couture dress which closed the show this season, but we can't see Allison walking down the aisle in trainers like Cara Delevingne. That's totally a Lena move. Allison Williams has the wardrobe of an Upper East Side princess, favouring Christian Dior, Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren. So we imagine she will wear something girly and luxurious.

We know Allison has a thing for white lace, as at the Oscars last year she wore an ivory floor-sweeping Valentino gown. We would place our bets on a flowing Monique Lhuillier or frothy Oscar de la Renta - but perhaps she will surprise us and do a Gwen Stefani in bright pink Vera Wang?
