Michelle Williams Covers Vogue as Marilyn Monroe

For its October issue, Vogue has fallen for Michelle Williams once again (she fronted the magazine’s October 2009 issue)—though, this time, she is transformed from gamine indie actress into the ultimate blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe.

Sparked by Williams’s title role in the upcoming film My Week with Marilyn, the fashion tome drew on iconic images of the real Marilyn, reimagined by photographer Annie Leibovitz.

And naturally, Harry “talk to me, Harry!” Winston provides a girl’s best friend in the shape of diamond drop earrings and a bracelet.

For the accompanying story, Williams conjured up scenes from Monroe’s past photo shoots.

She curls up on a sofa, reading a paperback (in a J.Crew cashmere cardigan and cropped plaid pants), then sprawls on a weightlifting bench in jeans (MiH denim, to be exact).
