Allison Williams turned heads at the DVF awards with her chic look

The actress gave us major hair envy, wearing her glossy brunette tresses down in cascading loose curls with a side parting, for a boho chic finish. In a subtle nod to one of the season's biggest beauty trends, Allison added a chic side braid to the style to keep her hair off her face.


Sticking to a laidback chic look, Allison opted for barely-there make-up, save for pale pink glossy lips and a hint of smokey eye make-up, complete with long voluminous lashes and flawlessly groomed eyebrows.

It wasn't just her beauty look that had Allison turning heads at the glamorous event. The star showed off her style credentials in a long-sleeved black top with a plunging neckline, which she teamed with a floor-length skirt which featured sequinned star patterns – all designed by Diane von Furstenberg, in a sartorial tribute to the designer.

We look at how to recreate the star's glamorous look


There's no doubt that Allison gave her fans major spring and summer beauty inspiration – check out our handy guide to recreating her look

HAIR: This looks works best on slightly dirty hair so wash your tresses the day before. For Allison's loose waves, you'll need a large-barrel curling tong. Spritz heat protection spray on your locks, and then part your hair into top and bottom sections. Starting with the bottom, separate a small section of your locks and loosely wrap your hair around the tong. Hold for about five seconds and then release. Work through all of your tresses, and then gently brush through with your fingers. For the plait, take a small section at the front of your hair, and simply braid through before securing with a hair grip.

EYES: For a soft smokey eye make-up look like Allison, opt for grey instead of black shades. Apply primer to your eyelids, and then add some shimmering grey eyeshadow. Use a kohl liner to define your top lash line, then complete with volume-boosting mascara for a glamorous finish.

LIPS: Pink lips are a major trend this season, and soft nude hues can make for a subtle yet striking look. Start by lining your lips and then using a lip brush, gradually apply your chosen pale pink shade – this way, if you make a mistake, it's easier to fix. For Allison's high shine finish, simply add a slick of clear lipgloss.
