Michelle Williams for Boy. by Band of Outsiders

Well, it would seem its ad season lately on PrettyWellDressed. With a degree in Advertising, I suppose that I have a particular interest in fashion advertising. I always find them to be beautiful, creative and very interesting. But let’s face it, they have to be all of the above in order to grab your attention. Fashions ads show us a product, how gorgeous and luxurious it is, and make us long for the life we’d have if we were to buy the product (or something like that). Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate those 40+ pages of advertising at the front of magazines; I always love a good campaign. And right now, I’m diggin what Band of Outsiders has to offer. Michelle Williams joins the likes of past Band of Outsiders models Kirsten Dunst, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton. The lookbook tells a story so it’s best to check out the beaucoup of images here. Meanwhile, here are my favorites.


My Week With Marilyn

In light of my recent Grace Kelly post, I figured it would only be right to recognize another style icon of sorts –Marilyn Monroe. I have always liked Marilyn, in fact I can pin point it to the first time I ever saw a Warhol print of her. For my 16th birthday one of my friends got me a poster of the pink Marilyn face, 6 years later and it’s still in my room. But my feelings aside, when I heard that Michelle Williams was going to play Marilyn I was ecstatic. And then I saw the Vogue cover and it was absolutely surreal. They make Michelle look just like Marilyn and I know that she is probably the best actress out there for the part. Even though Marilyn’s life was tragic underneath the glamour, I think a lot of people, including myself, are fascinated by her. I am eager for the movie and hope that it’ll be a success for both Michelle and Marilyn.

Current Obsession

I watched Blue Valentine starring Michelle Williams and my current love interest Ryan Gosling. While watching the movie, I got really into their 90s-esque outfits: shapeless florals, plaids, cotton t-shirts and leather jackets. But what really caught my attention was how Ryan’s character wears a vintage gold Casio watch, like the one I have pictured. I was so intrigued by it and am now convinced it must be mine. It’s gold, vintage, and digital; my three favourite watch characteristics.
