8 Of Allison Williams' Most Peter Pan-y Looks That Prove She'll Definitely Fit In With The Lost Boys
Soooo... you've probably heard by now that Allison Williams will be playing the title role in Peter Pan Live.
Everyone's got an opinion, from the Girls fans of the Twitterverse, to pretty much every major news outlet, ever. Even here within Bustle alone, people are divided — some (like Kaitlin Reilly) find it a very odd casting choice (I'm in that camp, for the record), and others, (like Kadeen Griffiths) think that the ultra-self-centered Marnie Michaels and the sociopathic Peter Pan might just be an interesting match.
Christopher Walken as Captain Hook aside, I can't say I'm all that excited about the event, especially since I sat out the entire two hour-plus Sound of Music Live! (Don't ask me why I did it; it was a dark time).
All that said, the first thing that popped into my mind when I heard of Williams' casting was her moneyed socialite wardrobe. It was difficult to imagine the actress in anything other than a jewel-toned sheath dress, and it got me brainstorming over some of her less-conventional looks. Which somehow eventually resulted in the following list of Allison William's most Peter Pan-approved outfits? Let's take a look:
1. At the Girls Season 3 Premiere Event
Okay, so maybe this one's more of a Tinkerbelle.
2. At the Target Neiman Marcus Event
With that blousy shirt and fetchingly messy scarf, she'd fit right in with the Lost Boys!
3. At the Dior Front Row
Leather leggings? A sweeping, cape-like coat? A lunchbox-like mini-briefcase? Come on, Peter Pan would totally love it.
4. At the Girls Season 2 Premiere
This Altuzarra cocktail dress is awfully conservative for Peter and his gang, but you can bet the mermaids of Neverland would get a kick out of it.
5. At a "Meet the Actor" Apple Store Event
I'm sure Peter doesn't dig pink, but the shape of that John Galliano tunic + her tights + her lace-up booties = almost a dead ringer for his costume in the Disney adaptation. All she needs is a little feathered cap!
6. At An Evening With Girls
There's something distinctly Lost Boy-ish about these drawstring brown suede pants — and the tunic and undone hair only increase the effect.
7. At the 2012 Emmy Awards
The emerald coloring and the structured, cat ear-like bodice gives this Oscar de la Renta creation a definite mischievous, J.M. Barrie-approved feel.
8. As Marnie on Season 3 of Girls
Marnie definitely had a few Peter Pan moments as she did a quick shake-up on her personal style in order to fit in with her new, flower child image of herself (not to mention appeal to her new love interest, Desi).
