Allison Williams for Town & Country
Allison Williams gets the editorial she was born to do.
‘Girls’ star Allison Williams covers the April 2013 issue of Town & Country magazine photographed by Blossom Berkofsky and styled by Sophie Pera.
“I will have my publicist pull pictures of the way I look at events, so I can see, ‘Oh, that cut is not as flattering as I thought,’ or ‘I should smile bigger,’ or ‘That positioning is odd.’ I learn from it.”
“I have a goal, which is that I don’t ever want to look back on something I wore and think, ‘Oh my God, what was I thinking?’ ” she says. “That feeling is much scarier than looking back and thinking, ‘Oh, I took myself so seriously. I’m so buttoned up.’”
Speaking as people who’ve got a couple decades on you, hon; you’ve got that last sentiment exactly backwards.

She perfectly embodies that young New York socialite look, which makes her a perfect fit both for these dresses and for Town & Country. It’s not the most interesting editorial in the world, but it’s right up her alley. She is, after all, someone who apparently lives in mortal fear that she might wear something outrageous.
But what really grates is that she’s credited on the cover as “Brian Williams’ daughter.” She’s co-starring on one of the most talked-about shows on television at the moment. We realize Girls is criticized for, among other things, casting a bunch of extremely well-connected young women, but she’s at least earned the right to be known by her own name and not her father’s.
