Well Played, Allison Williams


I don’t know that this would normally invite discussion, but it’s slim-pickings for celebrity watchers out there right now. Seriously, one of our photo services papped the bassist from Earth, Wind & Fire. Even HE was like, “What is wrong with you? I don’t want pictures of me leaving the gym AND I AM ME.” But Allison here looks nice:

Just please don’t serenade us.

    Her head and hair looks great, but I don’t know that I’d have well-played the dress.

    If you’re hurting for material in the dog days of March, then turn towards more “Fug the Fromage” posts, which always make us laugh.

    Don’t try to turn adequate-but ho-hum dresses (or in this case, adequate but questionable. Does nothing about the black spiderweb lace make you think Havisham?) into well-played couture.

      I actually like the dress quite a bit, it’s just not that unusual.

      One Fug the Fromage post takes several hours to write. They are fun for us, and we run as many as we can, but they are extremely time-consuming from an editorial standpoint and ergo they do not always fit into the confines of our edit calendar. We are doing our best to write as many as we can given those parameters.

      Thanks for the feedback!

        Maybe you can scale it down a bit – do a mini Fug the Cheese Bite, or an Easy Cheez? Although I have to say the in-depth approach you take is what makes it so irresistible.

    She does look nice … but she needs a rose in her hair and a big fan to accessorize properly.

  3. CakesOnAPlane

    The bodice is a little lumpy. It’s fine. I agree with anna s. that you should fug the crap out of some more fromage, because that is always a delight, but I don’t agree that all well playeds necessitate couture.

    I like a lace dress/hem, but why couldn’t they have just made a dress with a lace hem, instead of a sheer dress with some lace, covered with a sheer dress with some different lace? All that is at the bottom now is a mess. I guess if it has just been a pretty lace dress, we would’ve been all, “snooze” so…I don’t know which is better if you’re famous.

    Very honestly, after the awards and the Paris Fashion/Fugshion week blizzard, it’s nice to have something less visual – so I am all for fugging some frommage!

    I would like it better if the bottom hemline was clean, vs. sheer and lacy. I think there’s enough going on up top that is very pretty and intricate, that it would be much nicer with a clean finish.

    I’d like it better if there was no lace across the top and the skirt ended right above her knee. That said, Ms. Williams is a lovely woman but she always plays it extremely safe. for someone as naturally gifted as she is i’d like to see something unexpected once in a while

    I want to see the bassist from Earth, Wind & Fire.

    Is funeral chic the new thing now?

    First Renee Z in a black lacy frock, now Allison.

    I don’t want to spend my Spring dressed like an Italian widow.

    • filmcricket

      Right? Chic young widow’s weeds. This is what Tasty Coma Wife on Scrubs would have worn to her husband’s funeral. Also, those shoes are beyond hideous.

  10. Tiffany

    It is ok, but I think maybe it would be a bit better if the skirt was a touch shorter and/or didn’t have so much lace on it.

    (and her song was so deliciously embarassing. I was squirming and covering my face for her!)

  11. maryse

    she looks nice because she’s a really pretty girl, but i’m kind of hating the dress.

  12. lefty

    Her face looks beyond gorge.

  13. testington

    I like the dress it is a bit unique. I love her though her singing Harder Better Faster Stronger on Girls last week was so cringe inducing and hilarious…and that video of her singing Nature Boy to the Mad Men theme is pretty awesome

  14. zona_gale

    I’m still so embarrassed for her for singing that creepy song on girls. Having said that, her hair is so pretty.

  15. Aurora

    so, this and la Mendez above…
    now the look is demure?…

    no more sideboob?

    just in time for early summer…

    I’ve never seen Allison look bad! She has great taste and everything looks good on her, so this is another FAB for me! I love the dress… I’d happily wear it myself! And her head is perfect!
