Michelle Williams looked beautiful as she hit the red carpet for the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her new movie, 'Take This Waltz' last night in New York. The actress, who is rumoured to be in a relationship with 'The Muppets' star Jason Segel, was all smiles as she joined her co-stars Sarah Silverman and Luke Kirby at the event. As her career has gone from strength to strength, Michelle hasn't left our fashion radar, and has become increasingly stylish over the last few years despite having a tendency to stick to her comfort zone of nude colours and pared down outfits. The Oscar nominated star will occasionally throw us a curve ball (who could forget the canary yellow Vera Wang dress at the Oscars in 2006, or the H&M dress at this years BAFTA'S?) however, her choice of dress last night was a little predictable - not that we mind too much when she looks this good!

Michelle knows that a simple cut dress suits her slight frame best, and this stunning Giambattista Valli number looks like it was made for her - the pleated skirt sits beautifully at her knee and the addition of a flattering dropped waist gives the illusion of extra height. The patchwork of patterns, colours and fabric bands work together in perfect unison and stop the lady-like tailored dress from looking too conservative, although Michelle seems to have undone all that hard work by teaming it with beige heels; oh how I wish she had gone for a yellow or pink pair! Regardless of her boring shoes and the strange plum coloured nails, Michelle gets extra style points for not adding any heavy accessories to her outfit (with all that meticulous embellishment on the dress, she doesn't need anything else) kudos for her sweet fresh-faced makeup (I love the coral lips) and a round of applause for styling her elfin cropped hair into a multi-toned sweep.
