Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton at the ‘Cabaret’ opening party: fab or fug?


Did you know that Michelle Williams is playing Sally Bowles in the latest Broadway revival of Cabaret? She’s joined by Alan Cumming, who already played the Emcee back in the 1990s (he won a Tony for it too). These are photos from the opening party at Studio 54. Michelle wore Louis Vuitton to the party – she’s the current face of LV, so that makes sense. Thoughts on the ensemble? I’m okay with it, but I’m not crazy jazzed about it. This is from Nicolas Ghesquière’s first collection under the LV name. I don’t see much Balenciaga here.

I’m also including photos of Alan Cumming, who wore a bold tartan shorts-suit to the opening party. I’ve read some reviews of this revival, and Cumming is still delivering, apparently. Critics are mixed about Michelle’s performance though.



Guess who else came out to Studio 54? Oh, just Scarfy Depp and his young lover Amber Heard. These two just look so… bored. I kind of feel for Amber a little bit. She thought Johnny was going to make her into the next Angelina Jolie. But Scarfy just wants a pretty young thing on his arm and in his bed. I kind of hope Amber is knocked up – it would be a smarter career move for her than trying to get parts through Johnny. Also: check out Scarfy’s Saturday Night Fever suit!

    Michelle looks fab to me. That’s something I would wear. Love Alan Cumming.. but…… what is he wearing?

    • I’m not a huge fan of her dress but she’s pulling it off somehow.
      I’m just happy to see her because she’s of my favesies.

      Is Alan Cummings wearing a costume?
      I love him so much on The Good Wife.

      Depp & Heard look like they doubled up on the Xanax.

      • AG-UK says:

        Love love him in the Good wife… Maybe it’s some sort of costume, I think she is great too and she sort of keeps to herself you don’t hear/see much of her anywhere so you can keep a low profile if you choose.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Yeah, that dress has a lot going on, but she looks quite pretty in it.

      • blue marie says:

        Michelle looks good, although I like her hair better from the side.
        I love Alan Cummings, not a fan of his outfit though.

        When did Depp stop trying?

      • Tanguerita says:

        @blue marie I’m afraid it’s the opposite – he just can’t stop trying. In fact it’s trying too hard that makes him look so ridiculous.

    • mimif says:

      Am I seeing brassy lowlights in Michelle’s hair? I think you either go all out platinum to pull this look off, the yellow is confusing me.

    • QQ says:

      She.is.killing.it in that outfit

      Sorta like the exact opposite of what Depp is doing …unless we are talking about killing the spirit of Vinny Barbarino and Elvis?

  2. poppy says:

    can she not smile or is pursed her new thing? the dress looks good -on her.

    the whole JD+AH thing -exhausting.

    • Bridget says:

      Michelle Williams always looks guarded on the red carpet. It’s sad, because when you look back at the pictures of her and Ledger, especially during all the Brokeback season, there’s no denying that was one happy looking woman. Now, there is some fairly clear body language that she isn’t going to give anything away anymore.

    • erica says:

      she smiles on all the other pictures, celebitchy could have chosen better pictures

  3. Karen says:

    Knocked up as a career move? Comments about her have gone from rude to downright distasteful and sexist.

  4. Freebunny says:

    I never realised before how old is Depp.
    Michelle is cute and Alan weird.

  5. Damaris says:

    Everytime I see Michelle, I get so sad. She looks like if someone even hinted at Heath, she’d burst into tears. On or off the red carpet, she never looks genuinely happy.

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I just want to punch that stupid hat right off his head. I need to go for a run or something. I’m super annoyed by a rip in a hat. And a white suit. Yet, I am calm about a grown man in a plaid onsie. Go figure.

    • LOL….”punch that stupid hat off his head” is awesome.
      Can we BOTH do that somehow?
      Maybe you punch it off first and then put it back on him so I can punch it off?

      • Erin says:

        It’s amazing how rude and childish you can be about a really nice guy. What the heck did he ever do to you?

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I didn’t say I wanted to punch HIM, just that ugly hat. It’s a joke Erin. We were just being silly. Life is a lot easier if you have a sense of humor and can let your hair down every once in awhile, but please, button up that top button and go back to being hall monitor if you wish.

    • mimif says:

      Lol that is a bit of a dichotomy. Maybe it’s because Alan is just being Alan while Johnny has morphed into a caricature of himself.

    • mia girl says:

      I will forever miss hot Johnny Depp.

      I’ve come up with theory. Maybe Depp is trying to go the way of Marlon Brando.
      So hot and talented for a time, but then progressively gross and odd in later years… he’s even putting on the weight.

  7. AlmondJoy says:

    Michelle always looks great and I love women with short hair. She’s effortlessly beautiful. As for the outfit… I like it but could do without the belt. There’s too much going on in the chest/waist area.

  8. Kiddo says:

    That dress is Star Trek of the 70′s meets Woolrich rancher jacket. The bottom portion looks VERY ester/synthetic/ick. She’s cute, I like her, but I hate the dress.

  9. cas says:

    The worst part about Alan Cumming’s outfit is he felt a cigarette was an appropriate accessory.

    • Mr. Pitiful says:

      He’s channeling German expressionist painter Otto Dix’s 1920′s portrait of Sylvia von Harden. The cigarette, the monocle, the hair style, and the red plaid outfit are all in the painting.

  10. InvaderTak says:

    The Derpps need to pretend to be enthusiastic or stay home. Their perceived bordum just cheeses me off for some reason. Maybe it’s just that one picture.

  11. Ag says:

    i don’t get all the amber hate. she seems so “meh.” depp is the part of that couple i find annoying. his midlife crisis is so pathetic somehow.

  12. Rachel says:

    Alan Cummings always delivers.

  13. Blannie says:

    I love Alan Cumming, he can do no wrong…he’s excellent in The Good Wife.

    Johnny Depp looks like he stopped at Goodwill and bought a coat that was too big, boots worn by a hobo, and a suit with pants that need hemming. He found the hat in a nearby Goodwill dumpster, as they deemed it too ratty to sell. He looks like he smells.

  14. Dawn says:

    I think she looks wonderful and she normally doesn’t make too many mistakes. She just always seems to have it together to me. And that is why I like her so!

  15. Angel L says:

    I wish that hat on Johnny D head would spontaneously compust, putting it out of it’s misery.

  16. Betty says:

    omg, i am already bored to see JD with that no talent-Angelina-wannabe… she looks so bored and arrogant!! I saw other pics and she looks the same… WHO she thinks she is!!! The next big thing???? ok youre DEpp’s fiance ,period. Sorry Amber but you didn’t prove anything yet… IF you can act, well show it!! But she can’t!!!

  17. lucy2 says:

    I didn’t realize they were both in that play, I wonder how hard it is to get tickets…
    Michelle looks great – I don’t personally love the dress but it works on her, and Alan is always wonderfully offbeat.
    Johnny used to be wonderfully offbeat, but now it seems like he puts way too much effort into it, it’s costume-y.

  18. I grieve for the former Johnny hotness, but I can hardly remember it after this J&A PR onslaught. Alan puts my teeth on edge because he is too ‘buttoned up’ = try hard. Michelle looks like she’s going on a date (as the man) with Dolly Parton in the 70s.
    Thank you all for making me laugh every day.

    Fab, Very interesting looking, It draws you in to figure it out :D Love the colors.

  20. Rose says:

    Why do you keep calling him scarfy when he’s not wearing any and that too for quite sometime? Also is he the only one who’s wearing scarfs? The hat, he’s wearing even before he came into movies. Actually JD is just being JD. It’s just you people can’t digest the fact that he’s aging but instead of being stuck in a loveless relationship just to maintain the fairytale he walked out. By the way their boredom is about you – “Ya go ahead we know what we are but we did expect this. Let us see when you’ll calm down with your cliched bitchiness and blame” is precisely what their faces are saying.

  21. A Fan says:

    What an unusual dress on Michelle Williams…I love it on her!

    Johnny Depp’s hat and Katie Holmes’ booties (remember those?) must join together and go in the garbage.
