Are You Ready For Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe?

In case you hadn't heard there is a new Marilyn Monroe film coming out, My Week With Marilyn, and it stars Michelle Williams as the legendary actress. It also stars Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh and even Emma Watson managed to get into this one during a hiatus from Brown. According to, the plot is "Colin Clark, an employee of Sir Laurence Olivier's, documents the tense interaction between Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during production of The Prince and the Showgirl. 

Now I wasn't very convinced at first that Michelle Williams could carry off the Marilyn but she does a pretty good job in the trailer though I really don't think they look alike. They do sort of have that tragic thing in common though. I mean she was always so depressing on Dawson's Creek. Come on Jen! It's the Creek it can't be that bad! Of course, in the series finale they killed her off with some weird disease and she was already a single mom who got to watch Dawson and Pacy fight over Joey for the 17th time. And then came the tragedy of Heath Ledger which just contributed to her terribly romantic status.

I always thought she was a good actress but I did not anticipate the career she has had. Two Oscar nominations and I think we are looking at a third with this film. Like Marilyn, Michelle has always had an amazing sense of fashion. Her amazing orange Vera Wang dress is one of my favorites ever. She has managed to mix Brooklyn funky with old Hollywood glamour. Here are some of my favorites:
Simple and elegant and I love the short hair

Vintage classic

To die for Vera Wang dress she wore the year she was nominated for Brokeback Mountain

Very Edie Sedgewick

Adorable and fun

Love this casual look while out with daughter Matilda in Brooklyn

Gorgeous in red

OMG. I love this dress more than anything. Shiny and short.


I don't understand why they aren't dating


So ladylike

Cute and casual
