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:
In a coral-red Louis Vuitton, strikingly on point with the peplum trend, for the 2012 Oscars.
Pulling off menswear in the cutest way at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards.
In 60’s inspired Op-Art by Kenzo for the Berlinale Film Festival.
Super sweet retro style by Victoria, Victoria Beckham at the Academy Awards Noms.
On Letterman wearing the most ladylike of vintage-inspired fashion houses – Erdem.
Working that clean mod look again at the BAFTA’s in Victoria, Victoria Beckham.
An older photo, but a great example of how she tends towards the 1960’s with her style – at the 2011 Golden Globes in Valentino.

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