It isn't often that the star of a teen melodrama goes on to become an award-winning actress, but that's exactly the path Michelle Williams has taken with her career. With incredible talent and stunning looks, as shown in these breathtaking photoshoots, it's no wonder the actress has become one of Hollywood's most talked about stars in the last year.

With multiple award nominations for her portrayals in Brokeback Mountain and Blue Valentine, and a Golden Globe for Best Actress in 'My Week with Marilyn,' the buzz for Michelle Williams to take the Best Actress award (or at least a nomination) at the 84th Academy Awards in February 201 continues to grow. Despite the overwhelming (and often negative) media attention surrounding Williams and her child following Heath Ledger's death, the actress has evolved into a full-blown superstar, proving that she is both an incredible performer and dedicated mother.
