For Boy. by Band of Outsiders’ spring look book, Scott Sternberg took yet another one of our favorite actresses on a dreamy, well-dressed Los Angeles adventure and documented it with a Polaroid. We can’t think of a better subject than Michelle Williams, or a better representation of this collection or this brand.
Thanks to My Week With Marilyn and the Oscar nomination that came along with it, the spotlight is shining brighter on her and her style than any other actress (except maybe for Rooney Mara). But perhaps more importantly, her natural beauty, intelligence, sense of style and ability (can you even call something so innate an ability?) to strike the perfect balance of tomboyishness and femininity is what Boy. is all about, at least in our minds. Perhaps that’s why this is her second time starring in a Boy. look book. She did it first in fall 2008 and that shoot actually had a similar theme.
Back then, she snooped around a house and this time she’s snooping around a cemetery–the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, to be exact. Click through to see her having a picnic, opening file cabinets, driving a hearse and pretending to dig up Hitchcock’s grave (Is this legal?). She does it all while wearing several looks from Sternberg’s Picnic at Hanging Rock-inspired collection as if they’d been in her closet for years.
As for the brand’s menswear counterpart, Sternberg photographed 74-year old artist Ed Ruscha outside of his studio in Culver City, CA.
