High in Style, Low in Luxury: Michelle Williams

 Michelle Williams was never my favorite actress. 

In Dawson's Creek,  I hated Jen for stealing Dawson away from his true love, Joey (or I just loved Katie Holmes because everyone said I looked like her). Here was this blonde, sultry NY chick turning up and meddling in Dawson and Joey's budding love story. Wasn't she the girl we just all hated?

Post-Dawson and pre-Marilyn (I've yet to see the movie but so far I'm sticking to my guns: Scarlett Johansson should have been the obvious choice! Nevertheless, after this post, I'm ready to give Michelle a chance), I must say I haven't loved her hair. I'm not a fan of pixie crops, I think Emma Watson, Pixie Lott, Carey Mulligan, and Michelle would all look better in long hair (if you're going to go short, go Lanphear) and I don't get that reddish-blonde shade. But then again, I've never dyed my hair and never worn it short, so who am I to pass judgement.

Coiffure aside, seeing Michelle in a H&M custom organic gown at the red carpet for the BAFTAs changed my mind about her. I bet many girls felt some sort of kinship with her: haven't we all felt like the H&M-clad "ugly duckling" in a sea of Oscar de la Rentas? I know I have. Working in fashion plus being poor equals every day is my budget-fashion-on-the-red-carpet moment. All my respect to Michelle's stylist Kate Young for pulling this major "keep it real" move.

And let's face it, with this black-and white gown, dark lipstick and quirky Olympia Le-Tan book-shaped clutch, Michelle oozed Hollywood glamour and was hands-down the best dressed at the BAFTAs. 










High in fashion, low in luxury - that's the future!

  5. Non ho mai tollerato i suoi comportamenti da gatta morta in Dawson's creek, ma era un personaggio che da brava attrice sapeva (e doveva) interpretare. Dobbiamo farcene una ragione! Per quanto riguarda questo taglio di capelli, credo che sia un taglio che può stare davvero bene a persone dal viso perfetto (e credo che Emma Watson sia una di queste), da una femminilità molto forte che trapela anche con un look così mascolino. Anche a Michelle credo stia bene (forse meglio dell'acconciatura antiquata che le facevano quando recitava in Dawson's creek), ma le dà anche un'aria.. poco sana! Non so perchè mi fa questa impressione!

    Infine, ti do il mio parere sul vestito.
    SPETTACOLARE! Elegante, raffinato, perfettamente indossato! Abbinato a delle scarpe e ad un trucco azzeccatissimi! Ottima scelta, insomma, sotto tutti i punti di vista!
