At the Palm Springs International Film Festival this weekend, Michelle Williams (now known for her portrayal of iconic blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe) debuted a fresh new hair colour. Shying away from the bright blonde curls that brought Monroe fame, Williams now sports her go-to pixie (worn since May 2010) in a sexy strawberry blonde.

We didn’t think she could get any cuter, but this deeper blonde shade highlights her rosy glow and accentuates the flecks of green in her hazel eyes. Though the haircut can easily read young and boyish (one of the reasons why Williams claims that “straight men across the board are not into this hair!” [Elle UK, December 2010]), this new shade adds a grown-up finesse without downplaying Williams’ youthfully sweet features. Paired with a juicy pink lip and bead-encrusted Prada satin shift for the Palm Springs Festival gala, we can’t imagine a better look for the stunning actress.
