When you think of the front row at New York Fashion Week a few names immediately spring to mind: Olivia Palermo, Hanneli Mustaparta, Rachel Zoe and Zoe Saldana. But I’m expecting to see another famous face when the Autumn/Winter 2014 shows kick off on Thursday… Girls actress, Allison Williams.
Ever since the hit show first aired in April 2012, Allison has been making a play for the Best Dressed lists. She works with superstar-stylist, Christina Ehrlich (who also dresses Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz and Ashley Greene), and has played the red carpet game flawlessly, favouring big name brands like Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Oscar de la Renta.

Allison’s signature look is feminine and incredibly polished. You couldn’t call her ‘edgy’ but that doesn’t mean she’s afraid of taking risks. In fact, every time she steps foot on the red carpet I think, “Taylor Swift should be taking notes”. Because this is how you do people-pleasing, elegant fashion without becoming predictable.
If Allison is a front row presence at New York Fashion Week I expect we’ll see her at Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein Collection and Altuzarra. And, considering she flew to Paris for the Christian Dior Haute Couture show, I can’t think of a reason she wouldn’t be working the fashion week circuit in her hometown…
Are you a fan of Allison Williams’ red carpet style? Do you also expect to see her front row at NYFW?
