Michelle Williams turns 28 years young today, but the birthday festivities may be a tad bittersweet.
Michelle has had a hard year. She ended her three year relationship with boyfriend and baby daddy Brokeback Mountain co-star Heath Ledger, then lost him tragically after a publicity hyped accidental prescription drug overdose. Michelle has had some time to heal, but with Academy Award buzz surrounding Heath's portrayal of the maniacal Joker in the newest Batman installment- The Dark Knight, old wounds are bound to resurface.
I didn't buy you a gift Michelle, so today, I dress in your honor to commemorate your birth. I will dig in my closet, and try my best to capture your unique, arthouse, Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby sense of style. First, a feminine yet bold floral print dress, yes, got plenty of those. Now I need a pair of twenties style thigh high hose and colorful vintage peep toe pumps. Hmmm...We'll have to settle for knee high socks and some scoffed up mary janes. Last but not least, some waterproof mascara to play up those dramatic eyes... and in case I get torn up and cry over Heath.
I love your style, your grace and most of all, your strength. I wish you a very happy birthday Michelle. May you and your daughter Matilda be blessed this 28th year with some much deserved happiness...and more vintage peep toe pumps.
