Brokeback Mountain actress Michelle Williams showed you don't have to be bronzed to look stunning in summer whites.
Picking up an 'American Hero' award at a children's charity event in New York, Heath Ledger's fair-skinned former girlfriend was stunning in a white gown with a gold panel bodice and shoulder detail. And rather than going down the fake tan route, the actress made the most of her porcelain skin, setting it off with gold strappy sandals and matching clutch.
Accepting her trophy, the pretty blonde, who's currently stepping out with filmmaker Spike Jonze, spoke of her love for her and Heath's three-year-old daughter Matilda.
She later hit the dancefloor to boogie with other mums and kids involved with the Fresh Air Fund charity, which provides free summer vacations for inner-city children. Fellow supporter Mariah Carey also attended the bash with her husband Nick Cannon.
