Michelle Williams Elevates Velvet Little Black Dress With Crystal-Embellished Slingback Heels at ‘The Fabelmans’ London Photocall

Michelle Williams attended the London photocall for “The Fabelmans” at the Corinthia Hotel today in London. The actress was outfitted chicly in a midi-length Miu Miu dress and crystalized slingback pumps and was joined by her co-stars Gabriel LaBelle and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

Williams’ dress was made of black velvet and featured puffy sleeves and a crisp white Peter Pan collar that diverged from the traditional rounded ends in favor of a sharper, longer look. The garment transitioned from its collared top to a row of gilded buttons and an A-line skirt with a flouncy quality.

The dress style falls under the category of the LBD or the little black dress. A versatile closet staple across the decades, the little black dress is noted for its classic style and chic sensibility. Once a uniform for the working class, the little black dress was reclaimed by high society in the 1920s after Coco Chanel designed an iconic ink-colored sheath dress marketed toward the rich.

Williams wore her blond bob in a simple middle part and brought the gold accents out in her ensemble with the addition of gilded hoop earrings.

Opting for a sharp addition to her ensemble, Williams wore a pair of sparkling black pointed-toe heels by Miu Miu that were fitted with thin ankle straps dotted with crystals. The pair featured thin heels, around 3 to 4 inches, triangular toes, and a sturdy slingback construction that offered the “Brokeback Mountain” actress a more comfortable experience. The shoe silhouette is a classic beloved by many celebrities, Williams included.
