Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton

Posted on July 25, 2013



Michelle Williams stars in the Louis Vuitton’s newest ad campaign photographed by shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh.

We’ve always liked her as an actress, but who knew the little pixie had such intense face-giving skills? We need to see her sporting this face on the red carpet. Also this hair.

Oh, and we suppose the bag’s pretty fabulous too.

    She needs to work this makeup look more often. Enough with the twee shit.

    • Just Me

      They took her twee and beat it senseless. So much better for a grown woman.

    • Lucía Gavello

      Her eyebrows are giving me LIFE.

  • She has never looked more adult and fabulous.

  • Latin Buddy

    I would live in a box for a year if it means I could have this bag…and I’m a gay man.

    • Just Me

      The Bitter Kittens are giving me LIFE today! I will park my box right next to yours, baby.

      • MilaXX

        any room left on that corner? LOVE that bag.

        • Just Me

          *moving down to make room* Always room for a Bitter Kitten putting out there for a fierce handbag.

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    Wow, I love those dark eyebrows on her!

  • Adrianna Grężak

    I like this a lot. I’d even consider getting the bag. (Normally not too into the label patterns)

  • lexilexi


    • LuisaNL

      I covet the hair.

  • She looks amazing.
    Ok, I have a really tacky, tasteless thought, but I will share it with my fellow Kittens, because we are nothing if not Bitter. Here goes. The very cynical bitch in me, happened to find herself wondering if recent tragic events would finally let Michelle Williams down from the Tragic Widow cross, to be replaced with Ms. Lea Michelle. I know, I’m awful. Let the rain of down votes begin.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      I doubt it, actually. I think she’ll only lose that mantle if and when she gets engaged/married to someone else, like if she had ended up with Jason Segel long-term. Lea Michelle has suffered a horrible loss, but a number of people have found her irritating before this happened (I was not one of them), so I don’t know if she has that groundswell of good will necessary to mutate into turning her celebrity narrative into tragedy porn. Plus, there’s no child involved to amp up the sentiment factor. IDK, does that make sense?

      • Latin Buddy

        Also, Michelle keeps making things really sad. She said in an interview that she has kept the pixie haircut because Heath loved it. 🙁

      • Oh, makes total sense and all are apart of my internal speculations. (Thanks for not slamming me for daring to voice my ponderings aloud.)

        • eowyn_of_rohan

          (I like you too much to slam you). Also, to be totally cynical about how celebrity narratives work, Ledger was an Oscar-nominated actor with both commercial and critical success over a period of almost a decade when he died, and after his death he won an Oscar. Monteith did not have that level of acclaim within the business. Both deaths are horribly and equally tragic in my eyes, but Ledger’s and Williams’ fan bases went beyond just one TV show and that was one reason the “Tragic Widow cross” had such legs.

    • marlie

      Nothing wrong with the question, but I have to agree with the other BKs that I don’t think this mantle is going to be passed to Lea. First, she and Monteith didn’t have a child together. Second, a lot of people outside of the Glee-watching universe have no idea who they are.

  • DKBB

    Wow! She looks absolutely stunning! Who knew she could look so grown up?! And that bag is pretty danged fabulous…

  • flamingoNW

    Best I’ve ever seen her. Don’t care for her much as an actress usually. This is absolutely stunning, though.

  • LuisaNL

    love this look on her. and that bag, OMG.

  • random_poster


  • Lanus

    As a deep-shaded lipstick lover, I want to raid her makeup bag from this shoot.

    • Velvety perfection.

    • kimmeister

      Not everyone can pull it off, but dang if she isn’t doing it like gangbusters.

  • She’s making me want to dye my hair blonde. My mother would kill me though.
    Still. She looks to-die, appropriately.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I guess I am in the minority here that I don’t care much for the photos. She is giving good face, but I don’t like the make up. I guess I like Michelle on the twee side of things.

    • ampg

      I agree. I think it’s a bold and dramatic look for this shoot, but in general I think it makes her look quite harsh.

  • Austen Jane

    I agree that it is the best I have ever seen her. Couldn’t care less about the bag – you all can have it.

  • EEKstl

    LOVE it – I’m a sucker for a rich, matte lip – glad to see they’re back. MAC has the best matte colors, used to LIVE in them back in the day…

    • MilaXX

      believe it or not, RiRi’s MAC lipsticks are really nice. My fav is heaux

  • MilaXX

    Love the face she is giving, but seriously covet that bag

  • Carly Warnock

    She looks a bit like Audrey Tatou to me. Absolutely stunning ads.

  • Also those eyebrows.

  • marlie

    She looks gorgeous. I don’t think I’ve seen her look this good… ever.

  • Glam Dixie

    As if being a model isn’t hard enough already, now the movie stars are taking all of the magazine covers and the ad campaigns too! She really does look fab here and gorgeous bag.

  • Lesley

    sexy as hell, this vamp look does her VERY well.

  • In_Stitches

    Anyone else find brand names and labels appearing externally on goods exceedingly tacky? It’s either ostentatious (LV) or sad (GAP).

    In regards to the pics, not loving the hair but the makeup is pure fabulous drama. She’s never looked better.

    • kimmeister

      Yes, I do too, I refuse to give free publicity to brands in such an obvious way. When I allowed myself to splurge on a Coach bag (at like 75% off) I went out of my way to find one that didn’t just have C’s all over it.

      • alyce1213

        My old, classic solid Coach bag has a tag — it’s very small. That’s as far as I’ll go with logos and names.

        • kimmeister

          Exactly, mine is discreet as well. I prefer to let the awesomeness of the bag speak for itself without having to show off the brand.

      • DominoEstella

        The bags cost so much money, why should I advertise for them.. I loathe monograms and big flashy labels.

        • demidaemon

          Part of the reason they have them, I believe, is to prevent the sale of knock-offs. I think they’ve become larger and more noticeable in an effort to make these items more difficult to reproduce and sell at a much lower price.

    • bertkeeter

      Without the success of anything with a label or logo stuck on all over the place…most of these high fashion houses would have two options. Design clothes and accesories that people actually will buy and that stand on their design appeal.That would require designers that can actually design! Last option would be to close their doors!

    • StellaZafella

      The only t-shirt I’ve ever owned with words on it said: “San Francisco – Lowell High School Physical Education (It was an inside joke as Carol Channing’s alma mater).

      I can’t afford High End Fashion. If I could I would hope to be someone NOT inclined to broadcast it. But I USED to love GAP clothes back in the 80’s when they were good quality and not too expensive…However, I never even picked up anything that said GAP anywhere but the label…funny, they never got the message.

    • alyce1213

      I hate it with a passion. I won’t wear anything with a brand name or logo on it.

  • Qitkat

    First LV bag I’ve ever coveted.
    Michelle looks awesome. But 10 minutes after the photo shoot, this hair would start to look tragic.

  • chowwander

    Debbie Harry realness with that cover, folks.

    • Yes yes! Is there a biopic planned by any chance?

      • chowwander

        Oh wow. That would be epic!

  • housefulofboys

    I took these pics to my hairdresser today and got this haircut – LOVE IT! Wish I could say I look as good as she does, but she does have, I don’t know, 30 years on me. I think this editorial is fabulous and I like the way she is putting forward a more mature face.

  • nannypoo

    She seems to be growing out that damn pixie. She looks great here.

  • I’ve wondered what is so special about her. She has chosen plain clothes and looks for herself until now. Her performances in movies are first rate but her appearance has been so understated. Her choices of roles have made me think that she is probably a fascinating woman. This recent haircut has been the beginning of an appearance that probably represents her rebel self. These photos are stunning.

  • omg_dora

    She looks gorgeous in the first shot, and I like that they kept the photoshopping subtle and tasteful. The skin texture makes the ad.

  • stubbornthoughts

    She should have that face on every goddamn day of her life.

  • Aurumgirl

    That’s the nicest Vuitton bag I’ve seen in a long, long while. And Michelle looks like that fabulous creature Sarah Polley believed she could be (I have a renewed respect for her acting since I saw her in Take This Waltz, where she kinda broke me heart).

  • Shawn EH

    And those lips! High contrast photos definitely work for her.

  • alyce1213

    The makeup and hair are superb. The high contrast suits her — she doesn’t look bland.

  • Anniebet

    Well, I’ll be damned.. she doesn’t look bland or twee! This look has some edge and substance, thank god. Now if she could just remember that she doesn’t always have to look like she’s auditioning for a ’60s suburban housewife role.

  • Spicytomato1

    Love, love, love the look. Edgy yet somehow delicate.

    And I would love that hairstyle but my locks would never cooperate.

  • ailujailuj

    Deborah Harry.

  • WOW. She has found her look.

  • DominoEstella

    shit, I need that hair!

  • Imasewsure

    I love the fact that I love her in these pictures but I’m also loving the bag… usually it’s one of the other for me. Beautiful!

  • quiltrx

    Wow, she looks great a little ratted up, doesn’t she? Remember this, Michelle.

  • PaulRin

    That is a very good campaign from LV. I don’t care for the bag though.

  • guest2visits

    She looks terrific styled like this, definitely like the longer bangs for her face.

  • OMG. Jenn from Dawson’s Creek is fr rlz grown up!

  • crash1212


  • Stacy Feng

    Dammit, I have this hair cut/length, now I need to figure out how to make my hair actually look like this.

    It probably doesn’t help that I’m not blonde though.

    • J. Preposterice

      I also have this hair cut/length, and every time I try to do something like this with my hair I am all thumbs and my hair looks like I stuck my fingers in an electrical socket. I think you might need a phd in hairdressing to do this.

      • Stacy Feng

        Man, I have to get another Ph.D? I just got one in Horribleness!

        • J. Preposterice

          I am just updating because I did an experiment with my hair this morning and it’s closer, but not quite there.

          I washed my hair yesterday & it had some B&B undressing creme in it. This morning I showered, but did not wash my hair — I scrubbed it out like so: soap hands to get all oils off, scrub through hair under spray, soap hands to get oils off, repeat — so some of the product & oil is coming out of my hair, but it’s not clean-clean.

          Then: towel-dry, put B&B undressing creme through it, blow dry so it is HUGE, like a giant mushroom cap puffball on my head.

          Then, I stole my husband’s American Crew “Fiber” hair wax. I often use this for more texture, just rubbing it through/roughing up, but in this case I did, like, a white-girl twistout with it, through all the layers of hair. Tiny bit of wax on my fingers, twist into a little loc-like thing, repeat all through.

          THEN, I used my waxy fingers to finger-style it into something like Michelle’s ‘do, smoothing bits and making other bits more poky-outy and rough. I could’ve set it with hairspray, but it is POURING here so it’s going to go limp as soon as I go out anyway. I think this technique has promise, but I didn’t get the angles quite right on my hair-drying, nor on my loc-making.

  • queen b*tch

    Gave me goosebumps. She looks incredible

  • CT14

    Eyebrows make such a difference!

  • Sarah Winningham

    Does anybody know what lipstick that is?

  • Di

    There’s a bag in these photos? She’s gorgeous! Wow.

  • Vanessa0206

    I am SO tired of that bag shape.

  • teensmom99


  • lrhoff

    She’s awesome.

  • PeaceBang

    Miss Williams, I will not allow this fabulous photo of you to persuade me to cut off all my hair and dye it blonde and then buy a lifetime supply of Viva Glam lipstick. I am stronger than that.

  • ItsDicey

    That 2nd shot is especially stunning.
