Allison Williams in Dolce&Gabbana at Museum Of The Moving Image Event

Posted on June 12, 2014

Once again, we call on all Bitter Kittens to come together as a family and offer supportive, respectful, tolerant positive reinforcement to a fragile celebrity. Even if we do hate what she’s wearing.

Because look: this gal couldn’t find a dress with some personality if she tripped over it. Her entire fame period has been characterized by staid, tasteful, too-mature looks that spoke of her socialite background instead of her new celebrity status. So this choice, while it does basically look like underwear in gown form, is such a major step forward for her that we feel obligated to love it, to the best of our bitchy abilities. Yeah, it’s not great to our eyes, but just the fact that she’s wearing a Madonna-inspired Dolce & Gabbana gown is enough to applaud her. Lightly. Golf claps, really.

To be honest, she could have leaped directly from our polite approval to full on finger-snapping and neck-rolling if she’d just worn a gigantic bejeweled “BOY TOY” belt.

    It’s nice that her wedding dress can double as her lingerie for the wedding night, too. How very practical.

    Also, last picture: That lady behind her is as bored as I am with this chick.

    • FuhUgh

      zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz what? sorry, did I doze off?

  • I’d be so embarrassed if I saw someone wearing this at a party. I mean. Who thinks to cut out a pattern from a doily and turn it into a tightly-fitting dress with a built-in bra?

    • MoHub

      A built-in exterior bra.

    • Trent

      Right? It looks like a Victoria’s Secret wedding gown.

  • TM

    That is some Kate Middleton-inspired posing (like the ring!) and hair.

    • Carleenml

      exactly what I saw.

      • Tessa85

        Me too! It looks like a ‘married into Western European royalty’ pose.

  • Gatto Nero

    Bridal undergarment.

    • evave2

      I agree muchly. It’s the shape of the bodice that looks like a long-line bra. Remember those?

      • MoHub

        They still make them.

      • DeTrop

        OUCH! They hurt.

  • kimmeister

    She’s like Jessica Biel, with more eyelashes.

    • CakesOnAPlane

      I was just thinking that maybe Jessica and Allison made a secret pact, pledging their loyalty to sleep-inducing fashion.

    • scoobynacks

      About the same level of personality though.

  • alyce1213

    With all the outrageous D&G that’s out there, especially of late, she managed to choose the dullest, plainest, blandest of the lot, even with the exterior bra. Which is not to say she doesn’t look gorgeous, she does.

  • flamingoNW

    I don’t think she could have picked a less flattering color for her…

  • Sarah

    Sad when the carpet you’re standing on is more interesting than you are.

    • scoobynacks

      Love that burn so much I wanna marry it. But not in that dress.

      • demidaemon

        Yes. Find something much more fabulous.

  • MilaXX

    It takes someone with styling instincts to make a white gown not look bridal. Her minimalist socialite fashion instincts aren’t doing that. Bra cup aside, all I see is a wedding dress. Throw a headpiece and veil on this and she’s ready to walk down the aisle.

  • BlairBear

    I wish she would step out in McQueen more often/all the time she would look so much better. Clasically pretty like she likes but also modern and somewhat edgy.

  • SuzyQuzey

    Well, her makeup looks nice, if a bit shiny. That’s the best I can do.

  • Golf claps.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I see a bride and I hear ‘Like a Virgin.’

  • FibonacciSequins

    I don’t hate it. It’s too wedding for me, but it fits her and she looks pretty.

  • PastryGoddess

    This woman is oatmeal and saltine crackers boring

    • ashtangajunkie

      With unsalted tops!

  • deelup

    Brian Williams in bridal drag.

  • conniemd

    Since I don’t watch “Girls” I have this dislike for her based solely on her boring style choices.

  • Inês Martins

    Isnt she looking like Cathy Cambridge on 5th and 6th pics???

  • Heather

    Underwire bridal? Is that a thing?

  • schadenfreudelicious

    she could use some blotting papers…is she engaged?

  • Joanna

    I’m just glad it’s lined from top to bottom.

  • jilly_d

    I do not understand her. Her father has more charisma in his pinky finger than she has ever displayed. What happened? What gene did she miss?

  • nomnom

    She would be the perfect person to play Kate Middleton. Both rich, thin and white girls, born to society families, seen in many social functions, with safe fashion choices.

    • Should have read this before I posted exactly the same thing! Great minds and all.

    • martha jones

      Um, she did play Kate Middleton in some made for TV movie.

      • scoobynacks

        I googled and apparently that’s a Funny Or Die thing. She has a great accent though, at least to my ear.

        • martha jones

          Ha! That is good to know. I have only ever seen still shots. But there is a reason they cast her!

  • LadyVimes

    Wedding dress. All she needs is a veil. And a belt would have helped the look significantly.

  • Mothra

    BORING. I yawned.

  • sienna elm

    a white lacy dress will always read bridal to me…this one is trampy/classy bridal, but bridal nonetheless

  • smayper

    Best I can say is that at least it doesn’t have a transparent skirt.

  • melanie0866

    I don’t know, guys – I’m so done with underwear-as-outerwear, and with the long-sheer-or-lacy-skirt-over-something-shorter trend. I can’t even work up the energy for golf claps.

    • Mona_Visa

      Agreed. When a dress looks like something one wears *under* something else, my first feeling is one of embarrassment.

  • When they do the biopic of Cathy Cambridge, I nominate Allison for the lead. Tasteful, great body, and THAT HAIR.

  • Too bridal, too much bad hair.

  • OffToSeeHim

    See, I *do* love it. I think it’s beautiful and the pretty straps and the body-con silhouette keep it from being aging.

  • marlie

    If it weren’t for the cups, I’d love this as a wedding dress. I know girfriend is engaged, but I don’t think it’s really necessary to take her wedding gown options out for a trial run.

    Seriously, though, it’s pretty enough, but, like Jessica Biel, there’s little personality there to zhush up a rather simple outfit. And I dislike Allison’s lighter hair; I thought her dark hair was so much prettier on her.

  • amber.

    she’s so white.

  • @Biting Panda

    Golf claps.

    I die.

    • KinoEye

      Man, I really should read before I comment. But the golf claps made me laugh so hard I scared the cat.

  • dschubba

    She looks like she’s playing the bride in a Black Crowes video.

  • Hrfe

    This makes me think of Lana Del Rey but with less lip.

  • Did she break into some sad museum and steal Charlotte York-Goldenblatt’s wedding dress?

  • quiltrx

    It’s surprising how often D & G clothes look incredibly cheap in real life (that is, away from their photo shoots and Tony Ward).

    • marlie

      *Sigh* Tony Ward.

  • demidaemon

    Yeah. Not gonna lie here. I hate it, and I don’t think she is doing much for it. It’s amazing how my hate is tempered by the fact that she just adds a sudden blahness to the dress.

  • icm

    My mother once owned a plastic (believe it or not) table cloth that looked exactly like this. I wondered what happened to it.

    • demidaemon

      Obviously, it has been repurposed into this “beautiful” dress.

  • ShonaSunshine

    First thought: Milquetoast Barbie

  • KinoEye

    GOLF CLAPS. I died. She looks like the prettiest model in a David’s Bridal catalog.

  • ktr33

    It’s like Wild-West brothel bridal. With the white lace on nude and that big wide seam or whatever running down the side, it looks even cheaper. It’s like the Allison William version of the time Rachel Green got caught by her boyfriend’s parents in her “sex underwear” and had to go out to dinner, pretending that she was wearing a dress, not lingerie.

  • Yes, the dress looks like an undergarment, but I could see someone like Dita Von Teese or Gwen Stefani making it interesting.

  • Man Dala

    I’ve made through the wilderness, somehow I’ve made it thorough-ooh.

  • connie238

    I think Randy or Monte from “Say Yes to the Dress” could help her jack this up. (snark)

  • luludexter

    My mother had a white lace tablecloth she always put out over a red one for Xmas dinner..I can’t believe this lady had the nerve to steal it so D&G could make this dress!

  • Imasewsure

    I don’t hate this on her at all… Hair and makeup are especially pretty

  • CatLady

    The seaming and the lace make it look like a full body support slip.

  • Firecat

    That dress is SO 2008

  • decormaven

    The Museum of the Moving Image went comatose when she made the scene. What a snoozefest of a look.

  • MaggieMae

    Positively risqué for Allison!

  • NBG

    The side seams on this dress make me want to hurt someone. But then again, bitching about the seams is the only thing keeping me awake.

  • Danielle


  • kategs

    It does have personality, you just don’t like it. I think she looks lovely, calm and serene.

  • macwell

    Gurl – that’s not your dress. In fact – its no one’s.

  • Dreamwr8tr

    Junior prom bride.
    Cathy Middleton wedding dress reject.
    She does “Pretty. Meh” very well.

  • MissusBee

    I can’t with the bra dress. As a top or mini-dress for stagewear, fine but as a long, formal option for small talk and canapés it’s ridiculous. Also long ivory lace with a puddle train… is bridal. It’s an inappropriate wedding gown, for the bride who saves money on underwear, so she can spend more on penis-shaped wedding favors. Classy ones, obviously.

  • annla

    I like her regular style much better. I’ve never had a problem with it. This… I don’t like at all.

  • Frankie Carter

    “Her entire fame period has been characterized by staid, tasteful, too-mature looks that spoke of her socialite background instead of her new celebrity status.”

    That is why she plays Kate Middleton on College Humor (youtube it, you won’t regret it.)

  • Miss Atomic

    Wedding dress + fugly undergarments = this dress on Allison Williams.

    It’s too bad someone like Allison wore this. If someone with more style/edge like, Rita Ora, was put in this – it would really sing. Allison just made it too precious and fresh faced. The whole look on Allison just oozes smug WASP

  • gingerella

    The color looks age-yellowed white to me.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Staid, tasteful, too mature says it all. Especially staid.

  • understateddiva

    I see what y’all are saying, but I’d sort of rather she go a quirky socialite direction than than this unimaginative movie star direction.

  • Fuchsiaforever

    SO boring. OMG the Boy Toy belt would have been AMAZEBALLS.

  • jif

    It’s just so very … beige. As is she, so it’s all very fitting.

  • Andrea Lentz

    it is a beautiful wedding dress

  • Jecca2244

    that second to last photo is a bride at the last dance…she’s had a bottle of Veuve (ok half because she shared with her new husband) and she’s so damn excited that the party her mother and MIL planned is over.
