Michelle Williams - MET Ball 2011

Michelle Williams is elegant for days at the MET Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 2) in New York City.

The 30-year-old actress wore a custom Miu Miu black cady silk open back dress enriched with micro-sequin gold swallow embroidery and grosgrain bow details accenting the shoulders and waist.

The event is hosted by honorary chairs Salma Hayek, her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, and co-chairs Colin Firth, designer Stella McCartney and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Special performance by Florence And The Machine!

    black is so not her color. plain jane egg head.

    hideous creature

    a very boring celeb.

  • Lily

    Granted it’s not the prettiest dress she’s ever worn, but I like the shape of it, and the discreet little bows on her shoulders. It’s very much her style, something delicate, original but not too extravagant.

  • laverdadduele

    She really needs to let her hair grow. This pixie cut doesn’t suit her.

  • l-o-l

    the cut really embellishes her ugly face.

  • l-o-l

    oops wrong word. Basically, she’s ugly.

  • Marilyn Monroe

    Why was she chosen to play Marilyn Monroe.
    Just because she trapped Heath Ledger and ruined his life?
    Excuse me but she is not celebrity material. That’s why she had to cling to Heath Ledger to gain any real celebrity status.
    You are very clever Michelle. How convenient to skip your pill
    before anyone else could get close to Heath when you knew Brokeback Mountain and Casanova would make him very famous.

  • Liz

    She looks lovely! An original gown, and I love her golden make up.

    @ #8: you’re ridiculous. Heath loved Michelle and was very happy to have his daughter. You’re sick.

  • Marilyn Monroe

    @Liz:
    YOU ARE AN IGNORANT LOWLY SCUM LIZ.
    DON’T YOU DARE CRITICIZE MY COMMENTS THE WAY YOU DID.

    MANY PEOPLE HAVE POSTED THE SAME CONCLUSION FOR
    YEARS ABOUT HER. I HAPPEN TO AGREE.

    IS THAT OK WITH YOU LIZ?

    Michelle learned to be MEAN in order to get her way.

    Her and father LARRY harassed Heath Ledger for custody.

    YOU DON’T KNOW CRAP ABOUT HOW MUCH HEATH LEDGER
    NEVER WANTED TO MARRY THIS CALCULATED MANIPULATOR.

  • Kate

    Beautiful and classy!

  • simple

    “Why was she chosen to play Marilyn Monroe.
    Because Michelle is fantastic actress.
    And great mother and great human being.

  • elle

    Whoever was her stylist and make up artist must really hate her to screw up her face and body like this. She is very feminine and cute, mostly looks very classy..this is BIG NO, NO for her.

  • PLEASE

    @simple:
    I seriously doubt Marilyn would agree.
    Like Michelle can portray this very kind and sensitive woman let
    alone represent her gorgeous beauty and sex appeal.
    Please. Don’t even try to patronize the rest of us who are tired of
    Michelle who can’t act. Thank you very much.

  • Maggie

    MarilynMonroe – you are spot on! He never even got engaged to her and when she found out he had officially dumped her in order to finally be able to date in public Gemma Ward (who he had secretly been dating for months) she was so vindictive that she used Matilda as a tool against poor Heath. Michelle’s face shows what kind of person she is – nasty FAKE piece of meat.

  • madmax

    i wish we’d see a pic of Matilda :( it’s been a long time now and she is growing rather quickly. she just turned 5 1/2

  • jesse

    @laverdadduele: She had to cut her hair off due to playing Marylin Monroe.

  • jesse

    @laverdadduele: She had to cut her hair off due to playing Marylin Monroe. The peroxide ruined it.

  • Lily

    @Marilyn Monroe:
    You are completely crazy.
    Go back to taking your meds.

  • sue

    terrible photo to much make—up dear

  • Marilyn Monroe

    @Lily:
    You have absolutely no respect for Heath Ledger and no heart for
    what Michelle Williams put him through.
    I suggest you find the interview she did in December 2010 and go over all of the comments made about her.
    MOST PEOPLE WERE DISGUSTED WITH HER.
    The video is here on Just Jared.

    FIND IT AND BY THE WAY TERRY GILLIAM AND NICOLA PECORINI
    KNEW HIM PERSONALLY AND EXPOSED MICHELLE FOR
    HARRASING HIM WITH HER LAWYERS JUST BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY.

    YOUR ARE NOT WORTH RESPONDING TO BECAUSE YOU MAKE
    ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.

    Don’t even try to insult me because your comments are so absurd.
    YOU ARE WORTHLESS AND MEANINGLESS.

    HOW DARE YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR AN INNOCENT
    YOUNG MAN THAT PASSED AWAY.

  • see

    @Marilyn Monroe: get a life looks like you keep our nose in tabloids.Youre the real scum

  • see

    @Maggie: Wow another troll.. actually they WERE ENGAGED on oprah it was announced that she was his fiancee and michelle was the one who dumped him and thats why he was so depressed.The gemma ward thing was just a fling Heath was still in love with michelle.You must be as homely looking as maggie gyllenhaal

  • see

    @Marilyn Monroe: So we’re supposed to disregard any statements HEATH HIMSELF made about how happy he was when they conceived and how much he loved and respected Michelle and believe a bunch of publicity seeking hangers-on who worked with him on one movie? How well do the people you work with know you?What has Terry Gilliam really done in his 40 year career but a dozen mediocre films? Now I see him for the sexist, desperate and sad old pissed off has-been he is.

    Youre jealous of michelle you dont care about Heath at all,cuz he wouldnt want you bashing the mother of his only child

  • Marilyn Monroe

    @see:
    You need to find that Oprah show promoting Brokeback Mountain.
    Anne Hathaway jumped in to ANSWER for Heath Ledger as
    he was asked what his feelings were for Michelle.
    Do you want to know why?
    It was because Heath hesitated so much and gave away the true
    answer that HE NEVER LOVED HER AND HE DID NOT WANT TO
    BE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER. HE STAYED SILENT AND UPSET INSTEAD OF ANSWERING THE QUESTION EVEN AFTER ANNE PUSHED HIM.

    HEATH HAD TO SAY WHAT MICHELLE WANTED TO HEAR TO
    PROVE TO HER PARENTS HE WAS A RESPONSIBLE FATHER.
    HE COULD NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE AND STARTED TO
    SHOW MICHELLE HE WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH HER.
    I HEARD SHE KICKED HIM OUT BUT AFTER HE WAS NOT
    GOING TO CONTINUE PRETENDING TO BE IN LOVE WITH HER
    ANYMORE.
    THAT DOES NOT MEAN YOU HARASS THE FATHER OF YOUR
    CHILD. WHAT FAMOUS GUYS HAS MICHELLE EVER DATED?
    SHE WAS JEALOUS AND ANGRY WHEN HE DATED GEMMA WARD.
    DON’T YOU DARE INSULT MAGGIE. YOU ARE TRYING TO ERASE
    THE FACT THAT HEATH DATED GEMMA?

    JUST BECAUSE THERE WERE TIMES HE PUBLICLY ACTED LIKE HE CARED ABOUT MICHELLE DOES NOT MEAN HE LOVED HER.

  • ANON

    I believe that Marilyn Monroe has the most correct version here. I mean, what was Heath supposed to say on national television? In an extended version of that infamous “drug video”, the one where Heath had NO IDEA he was being recorded, Heath began to share his doubts about the relationship by acknowledging that “she [Michelle] wants everyone to think we’re the perfect couple, so I’m doing…” and of course they cut off the tape right there. Based on this and the accounts of Heath’s friends, their issues ran deeper than “love gone wrong over drugs”. Heath had his own version of events. It was another relationship that came to an end. It happens. Why? Because there is NO SUCH THING AS “THE ONE”. It doesn’t exist people.

  • Lily

    @Marilyn Monroe: If I’m not worth responding to, why did you ?
    Obviously it’s not me who’s crazy, it’s you, which is made even more obvious by all those capitals you’re using. You do realize we can’t hear you scream like a banshee from your loony bin, right ?

  • Lily

    @ANON: What is wrong with you people ? You can’t analyze a relationship between two people you have never met based on scraps of conversation and interviews. This is absurd.
    And Heath Ledger often acknowledged that he was a shy and private person, it doesn’t mean anything that he never made any huge demonstration of how he felt about her, not everyone can go jumping on couches on Oprah’s or asking for his girlfriend’s hand in an interview.

  • Anon

    @Lily: I may not have known Heath Ledger, but his friends did. Some of Heath’s friends from the film industry and the party circuit claim that Heath and Michelle had nothing in common and that the only reason the relationship lasted as long as it did was because of Matilda. Where exactly do you think they got that information from? Heath Ledger, obviously. You’re saying that just because Heath didn’t proclaim his love for Michelle in the most obvious manner doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. Well, I’m saying that just because he didn’t publicly express his doubts and share their differences doesn’t mean they weren’t there.

  • Marilyn Monroe

    @Lily:
    You are a loser. It was imperative for me to capitalize so I could
    make my point to you Lily who was Liz running away only to come back later calling herself Lily.

    Lily or whatever you would like to called you are emotionally disturbed.
    You sound very obnoxious trying to put me down.

  • Michelle and Larry

    @ANON:
    Thanks for the clip on Veruca Salt.
