When the HBO show Girls started out, it was surprising to see that none of the girls were in typical television star fitness. Hannah was ridiculed for being overweight and eating constantly, even cupcakes in that bath. Her body sparked intense debates about the show. Even the gorgeous Jessa wasn’t toned like every sitcom star. And Marnie, Allison William’s character, was the slimmest but in not way “fit.” By the start of the second season, it appeared that Allison had realized how many angles the camera catches and returned for the first episode without an ounce of fat on her, even though she had already been slim. Now she has the body of a typical Hollywood movie star, thanks to her personal trainer. The days of lounging around in an apartment in sweatpants are over. Now it’s time to be the kind of 20-something who wears fitted dresses, trendy ankle boots and classy satchels like the Elle Studded Satchel by Rebeca Minkoff. 


You see what’s happening here? Allison Williams is TV’s new It girl. Her all-American girl looks, her bright smile and blue/green eyes make the camera love her. Her show Girls may not be widely watched, but it’s watched by all those who are in the know about pop culture’s trendiest topics. The fact that she’s has the most classic looks out of anyone in the show means she”ll naturally continue to get more famous than her-costars, whether that’s fair or unfair. However, her character is somewhat unlikable so she won’t reach Blake Lively-level fame. In Blake’s case, people see her as beautiful, vulnerable and sweet Serena every time she steps on the red carpet. Allision is a Yale grad so she’s probably smart enough to use that to her advantage and continue finding all kinds of roles for herself rather than just get typecast as another “America’s Sweetheart.” Because we all know how that ends, like with Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts and now Jennifer Lawrence. People love them until they get sick of them and then comes the backlash, which is never pretty. 

A totally random thought – doesn’t Allison look a LOT like Kate Middleton here? 

Gucci Dress

Blake Lively

You know a dress is going to be legendary when three big celebs are wearing the same on one the same month and all on front page covers. That’s Blake Lively for Elle China, Sarah Jessica Parker for Harper’s Bazaar and Kate Upton for Elle. You would think that Elle’s branches in other countries would know what the others are up to but apparently not. It’s a little bit of a fashion blunder to put the exact same gown on the cover. The September issue is the biggest of the year and each fashion publication has to work extra hard to stand out from the pack. 

It seems every fashion editor wanted to get their hands on this Gucci creation and you can’t blame them; the dress is gorgeous. There are two versions – one on the golden and on the silvery, blue side. Which is your favorite?
