Allison Williams' fashion experience

Allison Williams never expected fashion to become such a big part of her career.

The Girls actress has dazzled in some beautiful gowns on the red carpet and is known for her flawless appearance.

Allison is thrilled her career allows her to get an insight into the industry and admits she never expected it to take over such a large area of her life.

"Fashion wasn't initially something I knew would be part of my career but being exposed to amazing designers for special events opened my eyes to how fascinating the fashion industry is," she explained to

"I've got to know some very talented designers and it's been a really illuminating experience. I'm going to the Dior couture show in Paris with my mom this season; I am insanely excited for it!"

When choosing her ensembles for star-studded events, Allison finds herself drawn to fashion from Britain. For the Golden Globes last week the 26-year-old star opted for a black and white Alexander McQueen gown, which featured a zebra-style patterned bodice and long plain skirt.

"British designers have such incredible craftsmanship. I've always been an admirer of McQueen and walking into the studio to choose a dress for the Globes was literally a dream come true - I ended up borrowing two dresses as I was so overcome I couldn't decide!" she smiled.

"Lee [Alexander McQueen] and [his assistant] Sarah [Burton] are both such inspirational and cerebral designers, every detail is to delicately shaped; they even brushed the feathers before I put it on. There's just this intimacy between British designers and their work."
