While scrolling through your Instagram, I spotted a lot of great outfit posts. What would you say is an Ashley Nicole Williams fashion signature?
My style is literally sneakers and heels. I have so many different pairs of Nike Air Force 1s, so I will pair them with some sweats and an oversized T-shirt or some biker shorts and an oversized T-shirt with some hoops. It’s kind of like an edgy tomboy vibe. If I’m not wearing my heels, I literally wear booties, like big chunky booties. When I travel, all I bring is either sneakers or booties and heels. I’m the girliest girl ever, but when I’m not doing anything, I’ll tomboy it out.
How big is this sneaker collection?
Oh my gosh. If I had to guess, maybe like 20 pairs? I love sneakers so much.
Where do you do a lot of your shopping?
This is so hard for me. I’m going to confess something to you: My mother shops for me. She has the best sense of style I know. I don’t even know how to explain how good she is. As soon as I see it, it’s like, I love that, immediately. Going back to the sneaker thing, Nike gets a lot of my money. I really love Intermix. Every time I can go in there and get some cute outfits, I’m like, oh yes.
You recently worked with stylists Wayman and Micah, who work with the likes of Tessa Thompson and Regina King. What do you like about their fashion point of view?
They did my look for the TCAs and a spec shoot, and I think the thing about Wayman and Micah is they are so unique. Tessa Thompson at the [Oscars] after-party… I have never seen anything like it, the green! What they do with Regina King, it’s so unique and unmatched. When you see other stylists, I feel like some can be, you know, they can relate to others when you see who everyone is styled by, but I feel like Wayman and Micah, it’s just very set apart, and I think that’s what you are looking for on the red carpet. That’s what really drew me to them.
You are currently in school. What are you studying?
I am getting my bachelor’s degree in film and digital media. I’m in my last semester at Baylor University, and it’s very cool. We have a really cool film program. Along with being in front of the camera, I also learned to have a love for behind the camera. I like to write, I like to direct, I shot a couple of short films, so yeah, hopefully I can have my own production company or something.
Okay, final question: Whose career in Hollywood do you admire?
That is a great question. I think I really admire Zendaya’s career path, especially being at my age level. You know, going from Disney to being her own executive producer on her own Disney show, and she’s gotten into fashion and now on Euphoria and things of that nature, I feel like she has really taken control of her own path and destiny. Like this is what I’m going to do, and this what I’m going to accomplish. I feel a similar mindset. You know, I love fashion, so I would love to dabble in that. Of course I love acting, and I’ve modeled a bit, and I sing a little bit too. There are so many things I ultimately want to do, and I think that she is definitely a role model in that sense of hey, I want to do this, and I’m going to get it done.
