Michelle Williams Talks Dawson’s Creek Nostalgia

8 Oct

Michelle Williams sported a quiffed look at The New Yorker “In Conversation” event at the weekend as she discussed her TV and film career with writer David Denby. Despite a clip snafu that saw the wrong Blue Valentine scene shown to the audience – the hotel shower scene was instead of another fractious moment between Williams and Ryan Gosling’s characters – there are other things to talk about from this discussion including Williams’ recent trip to Wilmington, North Carolina where they shot Dawson’s Creek.

Williams explained that she “hadn’t been back since the show ended but I went back and took my daughter on vacation and saw people I hadn’t seen in 10 years and went all the places that we used to go. And it was great. It was actually a real stroke of luck to be transported there.” It’s all ’90s nostalgia at the moment and while I think a reunion episode wouldn’t really work (Spoiler Alert! Jen is dead) I am tempted to revisit this show, plus I still really need to watch the final episode (I know).

Wearing a Louis Vuitton shirt-dress that manages to incorporate both a black and white checkered pattern and a bow around the middle without veering into too cutesy/twee and not over powering the look with accessorizes, Williams looks fantastic and relaxed. While there isn’t a ton of things you can do to make short hair look different the quiff is a tried and tested favorite here at TV Ate My Wardrobe as it not only gets occasionally pesky bangs out of your face but also gives you a fresh new look. The pink lip color and nail polish adds a pop of color without overwhelming.

As photo shoots and magazine editorials with Michelle Williams tend to lean towards the melancholy these photos are a welcome change.

Next up for Williams is a turn on Broadway in Cabaret and she will be playing the iconic role of Sally Bowles alongside The Good Wife’s Alan Cumming, opening April next year. She also recently completed work on Suite Francaise based on Irene Nemirovsky’s work that tells the story of a woman living in German occupied France.
