Michelle Williams Gets Edgy For 'ELLE'

by Sienna Fantozzi

Spring fashion doesn't have to be all about flowers and lavender hues. At least that's what we're gathering from Michelle Williams' Elle UK cover. On it, the sweet, yet edgy fashionista rocks a leather Louis Vuitton dress that makes spring pastels seem so passé.

The 34-year-old mom stuns in a sleeveless orange-and-black striped leather dress with military buckle embellishments, atop a lace short-sleeved white tee. It's the perfect marriage of rocker-chic and soft and romantic, a union that Michelle was made to pull off. With her white-blonde hair (seriously, though, can this be the new hair color for Spring?) and porcelain skin, she radiates a fairy-like innocence while still sassing up the camera and giving us plenty of attitude.

But it's not all as glam as it seems. Inside the April 2015 issue, Williams admits life as a single mom takes it toll. Working while raising her 8-year-old daughter, Matilda, often leaves her "feeling pretty exhausted." Well, if this is what exhausted looks like, then I must look downright haggard, because I'd say this is just about the best I've seen Miss Williams look.

The inside editorial features Michelle in plenty more colorful Vuitton outfits, some pretty fantastic patent leather boots with pink heels, and her cropped platinum 'do in all it's undone glory. She is by far the coolest mom around.
