Michelle as Marilyn

Michelle Williams is Vogue US' new October 2011 cover girl. What is interesting is that she is in character as Marilyn Monroe for her upcoming film, My Week With Marilyn, in US theatres November 4th, 2011. The film chronicles one week with Marilyn in 1957 while she stars in The Prince and the Showgirl.

Michelle's interview was really wonderful, it was interesting to read what her co-stars had to say about her transformation into Marilyn.

I'm not entirely satisfied with how she looks as Marilyn in these photographs- I feel like she is wearing too much make up. That said, the last two photographs you've posted are really lovely and very Marilyn. I'm quite excited to see this film, thanks for posting!

I really like Michelle as an actress put I have never found her to have that natural sexiness but then again I have never seen her act in this kind of role, should be interesting to see anyway.

I'm not a *huge* Marilyn fan, but would love to see it. I think that because the movie focuses on one week as opposed to tackling her whole life might work in it's favor. No, she doesn't really look like her, but does resemble her. This is why costume, hair and makeup are so important as well as an actor's ability. I think the one picture of her on the couch reading is dead on.
