PHOTOS: Michelle Williams Channels Marilyn Monroe For Vogue
All we’ve been doing this week is taking a look at the future of fashion, so it’s nice to finally have a chance to look back. And that chance came Tuesday morning with Vogue‘s October cover, on which actress Michelle Williams poses as legendary screen star Marilyn Monroe.
Williams will star in the upcoming movie My Week WIth Marilyn, which chronicles the 1957 filming of The Prince and The Showgirl. According to Vogue‘s cover story, the film had a pretty shaky production — the English actor Sir Lawrence Olivier was using the film to become more famous in Hollywood, and Monroe wanted to be taken more seriously. But the two clashed almost violently on set, which should make for an entertaining behind the scenes sort of movie.
But if Williams experienced any sort of doubt or drama working on the film, it doesn’t show — at least not in these Annie Leibovitz-shot pictures, anyway. Take a look at a few of the pictures below. You’ll find the rest here.
