This is what Michelle Williams wore to a special New York screening of “Take This Waltz.” I can’t really decide how I feel about it — on the one hand, I like the fact that she’s wearing something that seems a bit outside of her regular comfort zone. it’s less straight up feminine and more overtly sexy than a lot of the girly frocks she typically goes for.
