Michelle Williams stars as the late Marilyn Monroe in the Academy Award nominated film, “My Week With Marilyn”, a biopic that follows the week the actress spent with film assistant and love interest Clark (Eddy Redmayne) during production of “The Prince and the Showgirl”.
The Marilyn we all know and adore is the lady in the fancy, sexy dresses but I really admire the fact that this Simon Curtis movie still shows off her sex appeal through the clothing she would have worn off stage and screen.
Whether she has a simple crisp white button down and skirt or a head scarf and sunglasses to disguise herself, Michelle’s portrayal of Marilyn just radiates effortless style during the whole film.

To get the look, you’ll need to focus on neutrals, which are perfect to dress up or down and wear year round. Keep yourself looking stylishly chic in a white button down shirt cuffed at the sleeves and tucked into a beige knee-length pencil skirt. If the occasion occurs, wear a glamorous 50’s-style hair scarf. Or opt for an easy-to-wear gray sheath knit dress; it’s as simple as that. A beige jacket will be the perfect compliment to any outfit during spring or fall, as will beige, white, or gray accessories. And don’t forget to grab your Ray-Bans before you run out the door in case you encounter any paparazzi along the way.
