Michelle Williams in cream Erdem: too pale to pull it off?


Dear Michelle Williams,

We get it. You’re virginal and pure. You are fragile and delicate. Noted. You always wear creams and whites and barely-there beiges and those colors combined with your skin, it’s blinding me. Try blue. Try red. Try violet. Because these creams and whites and are making my eye twitch.

Love, Me.

So… yeah. These are photos of Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh at the NYC premiere of My Week With Marilyn last night. Michelle wore this wispy little white Erdem dress and black Roger Vivier shoes which don’t really go with the dress. The dress itself is very pretty. I would love it on Sofia Vergara. I would love it on Angelina Jolie. I would not love it on Anne Hathaway. You know why? Because much like Michelle, Anne Hathaway is too pale to make these creams and whites work. And much like Michelle, Anne is the other girl who would also try to make this dress work.

Note: I’m not hating on pale girls. I love the pale and proud girls. I love all of you and your SPF. I love nothing more than a pale person with some adorable freckles. I just wish *some* pale girls would know when they’re giving people snow-blindness when they wear colors that are much too light.

By the way, doesn’t Kenneth Branagh look good these days? I haven’t liked him in a while (the Emma Thompson thing), but he’s aging really well, isn’t he? Very distinguished and dashing.

    :( i actually thought that she looked kinda cute…

  2. imabrat says:

    Aw….I think she looks cute too.

  3. bk says:

    Aw, I think she looks pretty here.

  4. spinner says:

    I think she pulls it off. She looks good & lets us know that she has a style that she thinks suits her & she ain’t gonna give it up.

  5. renee says:

    I think that she looks nice too, and I usually hate what she wears.

  6. toto says:

    she would be more suitable as Natalie wood than Marlin

  7. Ell says:

    Speak for yourself, I think Michelle looks beautiful.

    The Jolie wouldn’t be able to fill the dress, it wouldn’t look good imo.

  8. Lauren says:

    She is gorgeous…doesn’t have splotchy- goopymakeup all over her body, straw hair. Next to Michelle, Goop is nonexistant. MW is a true beauty, a fine actress & mother. Graceful & elegant.

  9. Kaboom says:

    The one thing that always visually disturbed me about Branagh are those razor thin lips of his.

  10. rundee says:

    I think she looks beautiful, her skin looks like cream.

    Your wrong in almost everything:
    *The shoes do go with the dress, because the dress has these black lines in it.

    *Sofia Vergara is too trashy/busty for this light-fabric-dress, Angelina Jolie way too skinny to show that much skin (and veins and bones).

    *The colours you want to see her in -blue, red and violet- are prom-queen or american-bridesmaids-colours.

    *She doesn´t look elusive and virginal. She just looks different from what you are used to.

    Stop hating on actresses that at least don´t only play in romcoms, but also indie-movies. Watch Meeks Cutoff, maybe this´ll help.

    I think she looks gorgeous in it.

    She looks beautiful but I can’t help thinking about being cold.
    It was a little chilly last night.

  13. gab says:

    She knows what works for her. I think she looks healthy and lovely. AJ would not be able to wear this dress for various reasons.

  14. tracking says:

    Very pretty. Love it.

  15. Nicky says:

    about the featured links, Liam Neeson (at Soctts the same evening) was also there with a wet spot on is pants… Only Goldie gets the link. interesting.

  16. Judy says:

    Love her skin…she looks lovely. The only thing I don’t like is the black shoes.

  17. sandy#1 says:

    she does look pretty, but i too would love it if i could finally see some color on her, gradual, maybe light blue for starters.

  18. lucy2 says:

    She looks pretty – it’s pale, but that’s alright.
    I just read an article about her, sounds like she really did a lot of research for her Marilyn role, which is good – as compared to some trashy idiot like Lohan who would just assume it would come naturally.

  19. I Choose Me says:

    Wow, Kenneth Branagh has large earlobes. Larger than Fassbenders. Hm similar long torso too. *wonders if that earlobe theory holds true with him as well*

  20. padiddle says:

    she looks really pretty, wish she had different shoes but dress fits well and is cute.

    Jolie is almost as pale as Michelle, I don’t think she is known for being particularly tan…
    Sure the loonies will correct me if I’m wrong, though ;P

  21. Turtle Dove says:

    What is going on in the third picture? Is that a clutch under her arm? What is beside her bust?

    I agree with the light colors. Time to mix it up. Blue would be gorgeous on her.

  22. Nanea says:

    Michelle looks boring to me, as if she doesn’t want to sell her movie but fade into the background.

    Sometimes I like her (dresses) a lot, sometimes I don’t get her at all, like when she’s doing that Widow Ledger act.

  23. Ranga says:

    You’re wrong, it all looks good. I agree she would look beautiful in blues and also yellows.

  24. kimberly says:

    in front of the backdrop too pale, standing alone amazing!

    Hai ragione, con questi colori troppo chiari ci sta accecando gli occhi! Vuole sembrare eterea, distante e fragile, come le bambole di porcellana…
