Speaking of dubious awards ceremonies, Blue Valentine star Michelle Williams showed up to the New York Film Critics Circle Awards in a Wren skirt and Nina Ricci top along with (you’ll have to take my word on this) some patent black Louboutin platforms. The outfit works so seamlessly I thought she was wearing a dress–or at least a head-to-toe designer look, but it turns out Michelle (or her stylist) got creative. The different textures are excellent and the whole thing is a perfect study in mixing prints and patterns: peekaboo lace on top and shiny rivets on the skirt.

This has been Michelle’s de facto red carpet look for a while now and it works well on her: prim, ladylike, demure, with subtle sexiness all over, especially here with the lace on nude fabric.  Still more points for her daring pixie cut. If I had to complain, it would be the safe, boring choice of black platform of Louboutins, but I’m pretty sure you’re not allowed on red carpets anymore without them.

Anyway. I think she looks lovely on all fronts. What do you say?
