Michelle Williams: 'Meek's Cutoff' Venice Premiere!

Michelle Williams hits the red carpet at the premiere of her new Oregon Trail western, Meek’s Cutoff, during the 2010 Venice Film Festival at the Sala Grande Palazzo Del Cinema on Sunday (September 5) in Venice, Italy.

The actress, who turns 30 on Thursday, glowed in a Jason Wu dove grey silk chiffon embroidered gown with jabot collar. She accessorized with Louboutin slingback shoes, Cecelia bag, and Bulgari jewels.

According to Variety, Michelle “anchors the ensemble with a performance of fierce grit and unflinching moral strength, staring down Meek (Bruce Greenwood) and firing a rifle with the same bone-deep conviction.” Sounds intense!

    Ugly hair and ugly dress. She looks like a Pilgrim.

  • Ely

    she’s trying to hard to look like carey mulligan…

  • anon

    the bow ruins it.

  • linda

    ugly dress no waist

  • Kitt

    She just doesn’t look star material.

  • Lauren

    She looks like an old lady.

  • Joshfan

    Michelle is beautiful and looks content. Isn’t that what everyone should have in life? She’s definitely never “tried to look” like anyone else, Ely.
    Happy 30th Michelle!! My best thoughts for you and Matilda.

  • Danielle

    Not her best look!

  • Erika

    I like her dress :)

  • Alaia

    Utterly ravishing. She is not trying to look like Carey Mulligan.

  • WhereAreYou?

    @Kitt: Well I hate to break it to you but Michelle doesn’t want to be a star. She will continue to star in independent films and be praised by critics and audiences alike.

  • Annie

    The dress doesn’t look good on her thick middle and the hair is the worst. Carey Mulligan did it first and better!

  • Joyce

    @Annie: Carey wasn’t the first to cut her hair short. Idiot.

  • MyGirl

    lol at people saying she is trying to be Carey Mulligan. Michelle cut her hair off for a film role, not because she wants to look like Carey Mulligan.

  • wackybutnice

    ACtually, Michelle Williams had this hairstyle long long time ago, way way before Carey Mulligan existed in Hollywood. Check you CQ people!!!

  • amanda

    I love her hair like that, and I like the dress, but the bow kinda ruins it. At least it isn’t black, like some actresses always wear.

  • Radiohead

    I actually think the bow makes the dress. It gives the whole a Parisian twist.

  • Jean

    Who cares if she copied Carey Mulligan or not? That hair is UGLY.

  • Billie

    I absolutely love her hair. It really suits her. The dress is a throwback to a bygone Hollywood era, a la Doris Day in Pillow Talk. I like!

  • virgule

    Exquisite lady

  • Beautiful Michelle

    Michelle: Happy birthday, beautiful!
    Just to shut up all of the people saying that MICHELLE is the one who copied anyone’s look, take a look at this photo from a few years ago.

  • eh

    homely girl

  • wackybutnice

    I guess i’m in the wrong era but I love the outfit!!!

  • ray

    this is a very hitchcockian look. carey mulligan cut her hair for a role, michelle cut her hair for a role. that is their job, to be chameleon’s.

  • stylelove

    Michelle is a beautiful woman in the wrong dress. Although she’s slender, this dress manages to make her look w i d e through the torso. The color is pretty, however. She’s a wonderful actress.

  • moogy

    Beautiful. I love how she looks.
    I think it is really good that someone in Hollywood looks different finally!!!!

  • amyamy

    bad dress, love the hair and the color.

  • Ashley

    I actually like the dress it would just look better on someone with a nicer body

  • same as brokeback mountain

    Excuse me she has had her hair like that since her movie with
    her boyfriend Heath Ledger Broke Back Mountain..!! And has
    never changed it..What happened people you the comment page
    use to praise her for being a great mom to Heath’s daughter..
    Now she has the first premiere at the Venice Film Festival and
    she is considered a loser..Who knows maybe she might be
    pregnant you never know do you.. And the snarky remarks…
    well keep them to yourselves.

  • Beautiful Michelle

    @same as brokeback mountain:
    It’s okay…I know it’s frustrating to share the world with people who say that a person who is probably a 2 or 4 is “too thick”. Bony ass Victoria Beckham is what these people aspire to be.
    Michelle lives a quiet life…acting because she loves it and not for a big paycheck and attention.
    I think she’s a great role model as a 30 year old mom…beauty and grace.
    Ignore the superficial posts.

  • really now

    @same as brokeback mountain: Who are you, the comment police? This is not a fansite, stupid. No one has to praise celebrities if they don’t feel like it. So an actress is raising her kid, wow, a national hero. You don’t know any of these people, they’re not your friend. Quit acting like an $$wipe and get a life.

  • annab

    She looks elegant….very nice. Has such a nice smile.

  • http://justjared Carmen

    Glad to see, even after Heath Michelle Venice.I hope Michelle has also brought with it little Matilda, Venice is beautiful.An Italian …..

  • boston61

    She looks like Doris Day!! She got real lucky in the actin biz.

  • sarabeth

    I love Michelle! I think she is a very beautiful young woamn. I also think it was very sweet of her to wear her Granny’s wedding dress to the festivities! LOL!

  • Suritard

    Is Matilda about to have a sibling??

  • Suritard

    OK. Seriously, not the best hair, nor the best dress for MIchelle.
    She’s always very cool and petit, and I am wondering, if Maltida is about to have to have a sibling.
    I will be so very happy for the 3 of them!!!
    Matilda looks so determined and inteligent all the time, great genes at work. Anyway, I trust Michelle’s judegment and really wish, OK, wishful thinking that Maltida will become a proud, big sister.

  • Summer

    She’s kinda cute but doesn’t really have the body for a dress like that. No waist.

  • sweetness

    she’s too young to have such an old look here. wrong stylist move.

    and what’s the deal. who knows if she’s a good actress? ..she makes films that NO ONE wants to see or is willing to pay to see. why is she not casted in films that have some box office potential?

  • Pixel


    And this cut is slightly different from both Carey’s and Michelle’s first pixie cut. This one has longer bangs and top, with nearly a buzz at the back.

    I like it and I like that she put a different spin on her pixie.

  • Dee

    She is so beautiful but I’m just not digging the dress! She’s gorgeous though she looks good but she could look stunning!

  • Radiohead

    @sweetness: Why don’t you go back to watching The Twilight Saga, honey? But not before you’ve finished your happy meal!

    People who watch good films know that she is a good actress. Crazy thought, I know!

  • Lilah

    Maybe I’m just old-fashioned, but I really love this dress. I also felt the same with Carey Mulligan at the Cannes Film Festival. I personally don’t think this look is ageing at all, but evidently I seem to be in the minority! I think she stands out far more than boring Eva Longoria in her pageant gowns.

    I don’t know if she has a stylist or not, but you can kind of tell she has input in her red carpet choices. It correlates well with her personal style we see in her candids. Someone like Kristen Stewart, I wish she would fire her stylist and work with somebody who lets her have a bit of input.

  • erica

    i think this dress is more for a way older woman. like helen mirren old.

    michelle looks cute in dresses like knee-length.

  • mailey

    @Lilah: haha, ur so right, eva does wear pageant frocks!!

  • sean

    cute dress but the clutch shouldn’t be black…

  • Jokergurl

    Classy, talented, lovely lady, always the best to her and her daughter Matilda. The dress would be fine if it was shorter I think with the 50′s style the train doesn’t fit the dress. I do agree she looks a bit Tippi Hedren Hitchcockseque (yeah it’s not a word so what)

  • emma

    cute face, bad body.

  • steenie

    michelle had this cut hair before Carey Mulligan and who knew Carey 3 years ago ??. It’s carey who looks like Michelle
