At first I thought it was a joke. But then I saw it everywhere. I waited for several hours, a reasonable time to see if this is the actual cover. So here it is. Officially: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe for Vogue October 2011!
Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the inside pictorial (click here for the gallery) is way more impressive than the actual cover. Which comes across as weird. Unnatural, very un-Marilyn. Why is this happening? Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that Michelle Williams is playing Marilyn in an upcoming movie. While I’m certain that the end result is going to be breathless, I have to ask if Michelle was really the best choice to play Marilyn Monroe. Was she? (there’s also an interview, if you’re curious)
