Michelle Williams' Short Hair Is A Thing Of The Past

Michelle Williams has been sporting a short pixie cut for years, debuting the edgy look at the New York Film Festival, in 2007, and again at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Photographed near her Brooklyn home on Sunday, sporting a bleached blond lob, it appears that Williams has grown out her "Twiggy" cut.

Williams, 34, revealed in 2011 that she had cropped her hair in honor of the late Heath Ledger, with whom she shares a daughter, Matilda, 9. She told Elle U.K., "I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it."

Ledger, who Williams dated from 2004 to 2007, died of an accidental overdose in January 2008. Shortly after his death, Williams released a statement about Matilda, then 2 years old, which read in part: "I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. [...] She will be brought up in the best memories of him."
