Style Icon – Michelle Williams

Vintage loving girls like ourselves need style icons who aren’t afraid to revisit the past. Michelle Williams is everywhere right now, but you can be sure we (and you too, right?) have loved her since she was Jen Lindley – although we’re glad her style has grown up since then! Michelle is (almost) always the perfect intermediary between 1960’s mod fashion and the sleek, polished styles of today, with her perfect pixie haircut, a body like Twiggy, and a tendency towards black and white. Now, after her incredible portrayal of Marilyn Monroe, she can add 50’s pin-up to her repertoire as well.

Note the vintage-y details in some of her recent red carpet looks:

What do you think? Are you girl-crushing as well, or would you rather see her dress outside of her comfort zone?
