The Michelle Williams GQ cover shoot once again sees this A-List actress channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe. Since she did just recently win a Golden Globe for her touted performance in the movie ‘My Week With Marilyn,’ it only seems appropriate that she would embrace this persona, which she has worked so hard to perfect.

Shot by Michael Thompson, the Michelle Williams GQ cover shoot is relatively shocking. Unlike her Vogue editorial, this photo session is much more provocative. Williams is clad in revealing lingerie, showing the other side of this iconic sex symbol that made her so famous. Unlike other actresses that have tried to capture Marilyn’s true essence, Williams portrays her sensuality and vulnerability beautifully.
