Of course we were way too excited when the first clip for the film was released, and we’re still pretty amped. The Weinstein Co just released a new poster and a new clip for the Michelle Williams-starring “My Week with Marilyn.”

The poster’s above. The clip’s below. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again after watching and re-watching Michelle as Marilyn in this very bathtub – we’ll eat our proverbial hat if the actress isn’t nominated for an Oscar for this one.

Celebs.com Presents the Week’s Five Best-Dressed Celebs

This week at Celebs.com we caught up with the Kardashians (okay, just one of the sisters), spotted a bunch of glam gals in NYC and even got “wonderstruck” by a certain country cutie. To see which stylish stars came out on top, check out our full best-dressed list after the jump!

5. Country cutie Taylor Swift always looks glam, but the singer really outdid herself for the launch of her new fragrance at Macy’s in New York on Thursday. Rocking a striped Tracy Reese frock, peep-toe pumps and crimson red lips, we bet Taylor left fans just as “wonderstruck” as we are.

4. Julianne Hough is back on our best dressed list for the second week in a row! The sultry Footloose star arrived at the Cinema Society’s screening for her new film sporting a sexy black tuxedo dress by Rachel Zoe and classic black pumps by Casadei. Sleek, straight hair and a classy, cute clutch topped off her premiere ready look.

3. Absolutely angelic in an elegant white Christian Dior Gown with black velvet accent, actress Michelle Williams wowed on the red carpet at the New York Film Festival premiere of her latest movie My Week with Marilyn. Check out our video of Michelle Williams on the red carpet talking about her role as Marilyn Monroe.

2. A glowing and gorgeous Kristen Bell attended the Nature Conservancy “Style and Beauty for the Planet” event launch in NYC on Monday wearing a nude strapless Tibi dress, styled with bronze Casadei platform pumps and a chic metallic gold box clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo.

1. Newlywed Kim Kardashian traded in her usual leopard spots for something a bit on the brighter side this week. We’re loving how she paired her eye-popping, lemon tie-neck top with a pretty teal pencil skirt for an allover electric effect at the airport in Dubai. Wow, who knew bold color was Kim K.’s thing?

If there’s any lingering doubt that Michelle Williams is shaping up to be one of the most mesmerizing actresses of our generation, let the trailer for My Week with Marilyn erase all skepticism. Michelle perfectly inhabits Marilyn Monroe, as a production assistant tells the story of enjoying a brief but passionate affair with the icon during the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl. If Michelle doesn’t get an Oscar nod for this, we’ll eat our hat.

NEW PHOTOS: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe

13, 2011 9:36am

The freakishly talented Michelle Williams turned thirty years old last Friday, and what better way to mark the occasion than with a stunning photo series depicting the star as Marilyn Monroe?

Michelle plays MM in the upcoming biopic My Week with Marilyn, and she immersed herself in letters, pictures, and movies featuring the late icon.

In the new issue of Vogue, Michelle talks about the steps she took to embody the most famous sex symbol of all time:

“I’d go to bed every night with a stack of books next to me. And I’d fall asleep to movies of her. It was like when you were a kid and you’d put a book under your pillow hoping you’d get it by osmosis.”

Michelle also attempted to gain weight to duplicate Monroe’s curves. “Unfortunately, it went right to my face,” she said. “So at some point it became a question of, Do I want my face to look like Marilyn Monroe’s or my hips?” (She opted for the former and filled out the latter with foam padding.) In the end, she says, “it felt like being reborn. It felt like breaking my body and remaking it in her image, learning how she walked and talked and held her head.”

Sneak Peek: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe

22, 2011 3:00pm

The Weinstein Co. has announced a teaser website for “My Week with Marilyn” starring Michelle Williams as the icon of blonde, Kenneth Branagh as Sir Laurence Olivier, Dougray Scott as Arthur Miller, Judi Dench, Dominic Cooper, Julia Ormond, and actor and Burberry model Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark.

The story (slated for release on November 4, 2011) has it that Colin Clark escorted Marilyn Monroe through the English countryside for a week, away from the prying eyes of the world’s media attention, and in the absence of her then husband, playwright Arthur Miller.

When Celebs.com’s Editor caught up with Michelle Williams back in April, she admitted to recent experience checking out “Twilight” with her friends:

Is there ever a desire just to take on a project that’s frivolous, or more commercial?
Williams: Sometimes. I don’t know. I don’t know what that would be. I definitely think that that stuff has it’s place and that it’s important, but I think that other people would be better at doing it than I would be, and I feel like when I work I take it very seriously, maybe too seriously, who knows? But it’s time spent away from my life, my relationships, my community, my friends, my daughter, and so, for it to be frivolous, it wouldn’t be satisfying, it just wouldn’t be worth it. So, “No.”

But, one of the most enjoyable cinematic experiences I’ve had in the past five years was going to see “Twilight” with five of my friends in an audience full of teenagers and their mothers. It was that call-and-response, there was hollering when shirts came off, it was the talking back at the screen, people standing up and clapping – I didn’t know movies could be that interactive, so, that stuff? There’s definitely a need for it.  I don’t think I’m here to—I don’t know, who knows?

Were you a hollerer?
Williams: No. [Laughs] I was just laughing at my friends who were hollering. It was pretty fun… I had no idea what I was in for.
