Michelle As Marilyn
We’re excited for Simon Curtis’ new film My Week With Marilyn for two reasons: First off, we’re not ashamed to admit that we’re endlessly fascinated by all things having to do with Monroe—her laundry list of ex-lovers, her mysterious death, her recent CGI cameo in that Dior commercial—and secondly, we welcome any opportunity to see the movie’s star, Michelle Williams, on the red carpet. Case in point: For the premiere at the New York Film Festival last night, a vintage Dior-clad Williams was positively glowing with rosy cheeks, a muted pink mouth, and delicately lined eyes. We’re also happy to report that she seems to be standing by her now-signature pixie cut, which was tended to by Renato Campora for the occasion. “It’s an easy-to-wear, chic, and undone look,” Campora said, applying Frédéric Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel to wet hair, drying, and then creating separation and definition with its Coiff Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax. Williams happens to look pretty excellent on-screen with Monroe’s platinum curly bob, but we’re partial to the pixie. You too?
