It was said that Allison Williams and her stylist Christina Ehrlich always dreamed about putting Williams in an Oscar de la Renta dress, and I am so glad they did! She is dynamite in this emerald-green silk duchess-satin dress. Everything about it is fantastic, from the seamed bustier bodice to the peplum detail, down to the mermaid skirt in the back.

It is really very elegant in all respects and is so slimming, even with such a heavy fabric, which sometimes discourages designers from using duchess satin. (Designer tip: Duchess satin is roughly twice the weight as regular taffeta.) Here again, I find no reason to criticize her for not wearing a necklace, as this dress has all the detail needed to produce a winning star. I like the gold earrings she paired with this number; they’re simple and elegant like the dress, like Allison!
