The hair. The skin. The clothes. The personality. Allison Williams is everything you thought (and more!) in person — and she’s really funny! While promoting Simple skincare (for which she’s the brand ambassador), she chatted with us about that little HBO show she’s on and gave some fun fashion and beauty insight.
“I would love to raid the wardrobe of Jessa because I think she has really cool pieces,” Williams tells PEOPLE in the video of her Girls style crush. “She wears a lot of vintage stuff with a lot of modern, flowy pieces. Sometimes when [my character] Marnie is trying to wear cool clothes, our costume department will pull from Jessa’s closet and make it look like Marnie stole something from Jessa to wear.”
As for the star’s off-screen style, when she’s not on the red carpet, she’s all about boots and has a bit more confidence when she wears them: “I love boots. They are very important,” she says of her fall wardrobe staples. “I wear them almost every day. I like the attitude with which I walk when I wear boots. It’s different.”
One thing she’s less confident about: Wearing bright lipstick. “I’m definitely a smoky eye girl instead of a bold lip. I think wearing lips requires a lot of courage. It also requires the kind of teeth that don’t like to get lipstick on them,” she jokes. “My teeth seem to enjoy the feeling of lipstick on them, so I have to be very careful about constantly wiping them. To avoid that entirely, I just stick to the smoky eye.”
But with skin as good as hers, there’s almost nothing she can’t pull off — and she attributes that to Simple. “Their products have never irritated my skin once, and I use their cleansing wipes all the time,” Williams says. “They omit really harsh irritants and in general, everything I’ve tried has a really positive impact on my skin.”
