Allison Williams In Christian Dior – Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 12th Annual ‘An Enduring Vision’ Benefit Gala

Allison Williams In Christian Dior - Elton John AIDS Foundation's 12th Annual 'An Enduring Vision' Benefit Gala

Allison Williams attended the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 12th Annual ‘An Enduring Vision’ benefit gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening.

There was a time when you could pick out an Allison Williams look from any Oscar de la Renta look book, but she appears to be switching things up a little, working different silhouettes and hairstyles into her red carpet repertoire.

On this occasion she wore a Dior long black dress with a shawl collar which trails down her back, styling the look with a simple ponytail and flawless makeup including a glossy nude lip.

She accessorized with black satin sandals, a Dior black clutch and a collection of Dior fine jewelry including a ‘Ma Bague’ yellow-gold, diamond and fuchsia-tourmaline ring and ‘Pluie D’Ete’ white-gold-and-diamond earrings .

While I really like her sophisticated look, something is missing.

Jewels in a more vibrant (emerald) hue, a bejewelled clutch or perhaps a bold lip colour: I just can’t put my finger on what would’ve made me love this look.

    She looks divine, the earrings are a great touch, the make up is perfect and the dress is perfect on her.

      Interestingly, ‘divine’ is just the word I wanted to use for the close up.

      • GRACE October 17, 2013 at 10:20 #

        Agreed! She looks breathtaking, especially in the close up!!

    • Denise October 16, 2013 at 13:06 #

      Love it, too!

    • Peeper October 16, 2013 at 15:48 #

      Agreed, this is a gorgeous look.

      BDOTW nominee for me.

        Love this just as is- she looks very elegant and classic, and this is actually the first time i really appriciated her look

    • KatieKate October 17, 2013 at 02:19 #

      +7, I believe it is! This is a totally classic, Hepburn-esque moment. Just stunning.

    I think a gold or silver large cuff bracelet would have been nice instead of the earrings which get lost.

  5. Yeliz October 16, 2013 at 11:41 #

    I think she looks flawless, I don’t have any complaints about this look. I love it from head-to-toe, it’s BDOTW worthy IMO.

    presence? coz i think that’s what she lacks.

  7. Lara October 16, 2013 at 12:29 #

    I love this look in its entirety. The make-up is complimentary and the earrings are gorge. BDOTW.

  8. Christine October 16, 2013 at 12:59 #

    I am so bored by her. This look is dull.

  9. EmmaWoodhouse October 16, 2013 at 13:20 #

    I think a brilliant cuff would have perfected this chic look.

    • Anne October 16, 2013 at 13:30 #

      I adore this look from head-to-toe, but I totally agree that a cuff would have sealed the deal.

  10. molly October 16, 2013 at 13:57 #

    I think an emerald or sapphire brooch would have been really pretty or a nice long pair of ruby or amethyst earrings. Either way, I absolutely love this look! I adore how lady-like her style is, its so refreshing.

  11. Rebecca Z October 16, 2013 at 15:17 #

    I love the elegant chic dress and her hair and makeup are spectacular. I like the earrings–would have put some color in the clutch and left it at that.

  12. amy October 16, 2013 at 17:06 #

    her makeup is perfection

  13. mamaria October 16, 2013 at 17:28 #

    a belt maybe?

  14. Nat39 October 16, 2013 at 19:58 #

    I’m not missing anything. I like the clean understated way she is wearing this look. Sleek, elegant, absolutely beautiful w/o any additional vibrant/bejewelled accessories, it’s perfect the way it is. BDOTW worthy.

  15. gabis October 16, 2013 at 20:04 #

    I understand the feeling that something’s missing and I agree, a touch of colour via lips, jewelry or clutch would’ve brought this look to the perfection level. However I can’t help falling in love with it as it is. She looks flawless.

    LOVE H2T!!! Flawless. I think this is the best she has ever looked on the RC.

  17. Derro October 17, 2013 at 09:04 #

    Are you kidding? The girl is 24, why is she dressing two decades older???

    This look is boring, bland, and too mature for her. Send it on to Angelina Jolie.
