Allison Williams Looks Like a Giant Raven on the Red Carpet

On the one hand, we're happy to see Allison Williams wearing something other than a strapless ball gown. On the other hand, the HBO star seems to have gone too far in the other direction.

Our apologies to Mr. Oscar de la Renta, but she looks like a massive raven. Or would it be more like a dark peacock with its feathers facing down? We're not exactly up on our ornithology, but we have a feeling there's no real flying animal quite this outrageous.

The thing that makes this lacey look so strange is that the bottom is technically tons of layered tulle creating a feather-like effect. This makes the gown more like the world's most intense ballerina costume, a sort of Black Swan gone wild.

We can't believe we're going to say this given how much we criticize TV's Marnie for her boring fashions, but we wish this dress featured a plain black satin skirt vs. the wide load bottom. But we really wish Allison could find a happy medium between plain and insane Jane.
