I thought I'd do something different for today's blog post. If like me you love clothes and certain celebrities you'll probably have a few whose style you like to follow. One of my celeb style "icons" is Michelle Williams.
Ever since I saw her for the first time in Dawson's Creek I have always followed her for style ideas. Her short peroxided hair alone makes her quirky in my eyes and she never really plays it safe on the red carpet but always manages to get it right (note that yellow Vera Wang dress she wore to the 2006 Oscars). Like all celebs she does get sent clothes no doubt and probably has a stylist for events but other than that I think she probably picks her own outfits. I love her casual style even more. She wears clothes that normal women would wear taking their child to school or meeting a friend for lunch - jeans, runners, quirky dresses, shorts...not skin tight dresses and skyscraper heals and big ugly oversized black glasses. She's still young and I like that she dresses young. And of course she played the ultimate style icon in her stunning portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn.
I am very tempted to copy her hair one of these days too.
So, this is my dedication to the summer style of Michelle. I'd like to do a winter one too when the time comes.
Who's your celeb style icon or maybe you don't have one?
A different female icon for a different reason.
