LIKE A VIRGIN: “True Blood” actress Deborah Ann Woll is no longer a fashion show novice after attending Prabal Gurung’s presentation Saturday afternoon. Looking demure in a white dress by the designer, Woll was bubbling with excitement. “I can’t believe it. This is like a little girl’s dream come true,” she enthused, noting the irony of her outfit considering she plays an eternal virgin, Jessica, on the cult show. “Well, I’m a fashion week virgin,” she said, adding of Gurung, “I like that he’s kind of up-and-coming and new and I’m kind of new to this world as well. It felt like the right start. I went online and researched his work and what he’s done in the past couple of years.”

Seems she’ll have to wait a bit for her next time — Gurung’s will be her only show of the week as she’s busy shooting the film “Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You,” about “a young boy having trouble finding himself in maybe a world that wasn’t made for him.”
