Michelle Williams was in New York City on Thursday night for a special screening of her latest movie ‘Take This Waltz.’

The actress strayed way out of her comfort zone, choosing an uber-sexy Altuzarra Resort 2013 dress.

The lace-up corset bodice is a bit more risky and sexy than we’re used to seeing the reserved actress wear, but I love seeing something different from her this time around.

Michelle opted to wear the celebrity-favourite Givenchy strappy sandals in white, which add a contrast to the dark dress.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress in another colour. A bright hue would be more appropriate for the current heat wave in NYC.

Red nail polish, nude lips, Forevermark jewels, a Judith Leiber black clutch and her signature pixie cut complete the look.
