Monochrome maiden: Michelle Williams looked great in an optical illusion dress as she attended a photocall for My Week With Marilyn in Berlin

She never fails to dazzle on the red carpet but Michelle William’s ensemble had a hypnotising effect tonight.

The 31-year-old actress made a spellbinding appearance as she stepped out to promote My Week With Marilyn in Marilyn in Berlin.

The black and white shift dress boasted a scalloped pattern which left fans mesmerised.


Michelle has donned a series of different looks promoting her latest film where she portrays the blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe.

On Wednesday night Michelle stepped out in an elaborate Dior gown, donning a French designer to introduce the film in Paris.

But earlier today the mother-of-one opted for a much more simple style teamed the monochrome ensemble with a pair of plain black court heels.

The only flash of colour came from her bright red nails and a smudge of burnt rouge gloss across her rose-bud mouth.

Michelle recently recalled on shooting a late-October skinny dipping scene for the movie in the Thames.

'It’s supposed to be this pure moment of bliss, so you can’t be a buzz-kill just because your teeth won’t stop chattering and the medic has this awful look on his face because your body temperature won’t stabilize,' she told the L.A. Times.

The actress made a heartfelt speech to her daughter by the late Heath Ledger, Matilda, six , as she picked up her award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes.

The single parent told the crowd: 'I consider myself a mother first and an actress second, and so the person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl, whose bravery and exuberance is the example that I take with me in my work and in my life.'

It's not clear if she has something prepared should she scoop an Oscar at the Academy Awards a week on Sunday.

Michelle recently revealed she had an unusual method of getting in the shoes of Marilyn for in the film, which also stars Kenneth Branagh and Emma Watson.

She said: 'I would think that I had a little scoop of chocolate ice cream right in the back of my mouth and everything that I breathed in tasted or smelled really, really good.

'[Monroe] figured out that she looked more attractive with her mouth open and to keep that openness I tried to think of that little scoop of ice cream on the back of my tongue.'

And Michelle said previously that she enjoyed a much bigger diet getting into the right shape for the role, adding: 'I wasn't watching what I ate, let's put it that way.'
