Michelle Williams, Shear Genius
Our colleagues over at Style File have already given a shout-out to Michelle Williams and the Chanel Haute Couture frock she wore yesterday in Cannes to the premiere of Blue Valentine, but we couldn’t resist a mention of our own. Her corn silk blond pixie cut is the beauty moment that we’ve been waiting for since the film festival got under way on the Riviera last week—on par with Angelina’s matte red lip circa ’09. The choppy style suits the actress’ cherubic face quite well, in that it’s similar to her Mia Farrow incarnation from a few years back, another high point in Williams’ hair history. Here, we’ve compiled a little retrospective for you so you can fully grasp the magnitude of her latest transformation. It’s hard for us to say what looks best on the actress, as long hair and fringe seem to work for her as well, but feel free to voice your opinion below.
