Michelle Williams is a pro at slipping into various roles in her films, but her latest act for Another magazine has stirred some controversy.
The cover in question features the Oscar-nominated actress styled in Native American dress, looking pretty unrecognizable. The image is one of several others for the magazine's alternate covers, which include Williams as a "Kennedy-era co-ed" and another where the Oz the Great and Powerful star imitates Andy Warhol's famous Marilyn diptych.
"Just as Blackface is never okay, Redface is never okay. Stop supporting cliché images of American Indians. Racism is racism no matter what era of our history you attempt to portray, or what lens or filter you use," Jezebel writes of the image.
While it is already an unoriginal idea to photograph a star in the vein of homages to certain images or artistic styles, there are plenty of others of which to choose from that are less offensive to an ethnic group.

She may sell millions of copies of her albums and make quite a profit in merchandising, but Taylor Swift unfortunately can't get enough people to buy the magazines she's on.
In the Vogue department, Swift's cover sold 329,371 copies - a little more than the fashion glossy's six-month average - which does not impress much in comparison to Adele's March cover with 410,343 copies.
Her November Glamour issue sold 443,000 copies, but she couldn't beat out the less-famous former Hills star Lauren Conrad, whose cover sold over 500,000. The magazine's editor-in-chief Cindi Leive tried to reason why the huge star's magazine didn't sell so well: "here may have been a little hiccup for her right around the [One Direction] relationship. But it’s nothing a pro can’t come back from. I’d put money on her for the long run."
Swift's cover for Cosmopolitan turned out to be the magazine's worst seller of the year, selling 20% below its six-month average.

You know that V has got to be out of ideas for its cover if it resorts to featuring Rihanna and Kate Moss in their birthday suits. Yawn. Haven't we seen this before? Mario Testino shot the covers for this "Dynamic Duos" issue - on newsstands February 28 - one of which Kate's leg could
eerily easily double as Rihanna's arm.
What do you think of V's latest issue - over it or love it?
