With Lindsay Lohan’s debut as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick last night, the TV movie about Taylor’s love affair with actor Richard Burton, it got us thinking about other actresses who played icons on screen. Jennifer Love Hewitt played Audrey Hepburn in the TV movie The Audrey Hepburn Story in 2000, while Michelle Williams channeled her inner Norma Jeane in My Week With Marilyn last year. Soon, Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman will be adding regal titles to their resumes with Watts filming her role as Princess Diana in Caught in Flight and Kidman playing Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco. So, with all of these actress-to-icon portrayals, we want to know—whose reenactment is most on-point? Cast your vote on InStyle’s Facebook page now!
The nominations for the 84th annual Academy Awards are in! The lucky ladies up for the ultimate prize of the night—the Best Actress Oscar—are Glenn Close for Albert Nobbs, Viola Davis for The Help, Rooney Mara for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Michelle Williams for My Week With Marilyn, and Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady. So, who will walk away with a statue in hand? And, more importantly, what will they wear?! Tune into ABC on Sunday, February 26th at 7 EST to find out, and make sure to check back to InStyle.com for all of your pre-show and night-of red carpet updates.

Back in May, we broke the news that Michelle Williams had chopped off her locks in preparation to play Marilyn Monroe on the big screen. Today we got the photographic proof that Williams’s transformation into the platinum-tressed Monroe is complete! Filming has begun on My Week With Marilyn, the story of a 23-year-old Oxford student who befriended the Hollywood icon after meeting her on the set of the The Prince and The Showgirl in 1956. Clearly, casting Williams as Marilyn has proven to be sheer genius. And considering that her co-stars are some of England’s finest actors (including Judi Dench, Emma Watson and Kenneth Branagh as Sir Laurence Olivier), we’re already sure that My Week With Marilyn will be a must-see movie in 2011.
