21st century marilyn.

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

When I heard that Michelle Williams was cast in the role of my very much beloved Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn, I was more than slightly skeptical. I'm an avid fan of Marilyn's, and I adore her entire persona, grace, and beauty-- none of which seemed to be even remotely on the same page as Williams, who always appears very quiet and reserved, even in the characters that she plays on film. However, after just seeing these pictures by Annie Leibovitz for the October issue of Vogue, I'm more than convinced that she did Ms. Monroe justice. I had watched videos about how she prepared for the role but nothing compares to these pictures! Those last two photos are undeniably made up of Marilyn's umph & the final photo is a dead ringer for her. I am officially beyond excited for this movie. I know it's too early to say but, bravo, Michelle!
