Having had a shameless girl crush on Michelle Williams since the days of Jen Lindley and Dawsons Creek, I have followed her metamorphosis from teenage star to Oscar nominated actress with great interest.

Williams has already cemented her reputation as a burgeoning fashion icon (with a wardrobe containing an enviable amount of labels such as Chanel and APC) and this month graces the cover of Interview magazine. Photographed by Mikael Jansson, the actress is captured looking more than slightly reminiscent of a young Mia Farrow or Bibi Anderson in Celine knitwear.

Her pixie crop, bleached eyebrows, gamine features and petite frame ensure she appears almost ethereal, clad in a variety of girlish, sheer clothes. In the editorial pages, she wanders around an abandoned manor house looking doll-like in a variety of smock dresses, peter pan collars and blouses paired with white, knee length socks and Mary Janes. The combination of Michelle’s innocent, almost androgynous beauty and the editorial’s feminine styling makes this the perfect tribute to one of this generation’s most talented performers (plus has also given me an overwhelming urge to wear knee socks and buckled shoes).
