In her first public appearances since the death of Heath Ledger (the father of her daughter, Matilda), actress Michelle Williams walked the red carpet twice in two days at Cannes.

On Thursday, for the world premiere of her new film, “Wendy and Lucy,” the Oscar-nominee dazzled the crowds in a champagne-colored Chanel gown.

On Friday, Michele had a second world premiere, for “Synedoche, New York,” gracing the red carpet in an equally stunning purple dress by Yves Saint Laurent. The film, directed by Charlie Kaufman, co-stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener.

“She was very, very excited – it’s her first trip to Cannes,” “Wendy and Lucy” director, Kelly Reichardt, told People.
