  • Actress Michelle Williams turns her hand to modelling in gorgeous retro ads for Boy by Band of Outsiders

    She’s been a red carpet favourite for years with a enviable sense of style that’s revered around the world, but Michelle Williams has bided her time to make her fashion campaign debut.

    The Oscar-nominated star took a break from filming to appear as the new poster girl for the spring/summer 2012 Boy by Band of Outsiders ads.

    The images, which were shot in Los Angeles by the American label’s designer Scott Sterberg, show Michelle in a series of hazy Polaroid-inspired photos as she models the latest collection.

    The starlet can be seen in a series of cute poses at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in LA, including pretending to dig beside the gravestone of directing legend Alfred Hitchcock.

    In other shots, Michelle is seen having a picnic as she plays with a fortune-telling ball, reading books in a library and wearing a bowler hat as she travels in a hearse along a palm tree-lined boulevard.

    Michelle has long been a fan of Boy by Band of Outsiders’ signature preppy aesthetic and seems a perfect fit for the brand. She follows in the footsteps of fellow actresses Kirsten Dunst and Zooey Deschanel as faces of the label, as well as Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint and Tom Felton who modelled in the menswear autumn/winter 2011 ads.
