Ahead of the Oscars and her possible win for ‘My Week With Marilyn’ for Best Actress, today we take a look at Michelle Williams striking style.
From the ethereal beauty of a hand-beaded Chanel couture gown to the epitome of cool-girl chic in Jason Wu, Michelle Williams is never afraid to take a risk on the red carpet.
Often opting for elegant black and white, Williams has the perfect fashion-forward yet classic style. Elegant yet never fussy, beautiful but never expected. With a love for Jason Wu, Chanel, Erdem, Victoria Beckham and more, Williams is becoming a modern day style icon.
‘Elegant yet never fussy, beautiful but never expected.’
Choosing looks to perfectly complement her platinum crop, Williams understands the ‘less is more mantra’. Her refined, natural make-up and simple, elegant diamond jewellery evoke a timeless beauty.
A personal favourite: The exquisite Vera Wang saffron gown, worn by Williams to the 2006 Oscars (pictured above). Her relaxed chignon, red lips, and vintage necklace exude ‘Old-Hollywood glamour’ to perfection.

Embodying Old Hollywood Glamour…
Old Hollywood glamour is something I continually aspire to achieve. It’s that elegance, charisma and alluring iconic beauty that exudes unmistakable ‘jena se qua’ or something special you cannot quite place.
Elegance and glamour never goes out of style. Yet it is difficult to emulate. It is innate. What makes someone elegantly glamorous? Is it their clothes, style, behaviour? Maybe it is how they hold themselves and their self-belief? Icons of poise and sophistication – Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jackie Kennedy, to name but a few – ticked all of those boxes. And their elegance is timeless – continuing to inspire and delight today.
The editorials below all celebrate that allure of Old Hollywood glamour and timeless beauty. From Crystal Renn’s decedent editorial for Vogue Spain; to the light-filled 50’s inspired beauty of Emma Stone’s shoot for Vanity Fair; then finally Rachael Taylor’s glamorous pics for Vogue Australia – all show striking beauty is truly timeless.
Crystal Renn wears opulent gowns from Gucci, L’Wren Scott, Prabal Gurung, Loewe and others. Meanwhile, Emma Stone charms in striking red and white pieces from Chanel, Chloé and Oscar De la Renta, among others. While Rachael Taylor goes Gucci glam for Vogue Australia.
