Michelle Williams is a vision in yellow minidress as she joins the stars at the BAFTA Tea Party in Los Angeles

Michelle Williams was a vision in yellow on Saturday when she attended Los Angeles’ BAFTA Tea Party at the Four Seasons Hotel.

The Fabelmans star, 42, is dazzling in a canary colored mini dress, and her glowing appearance at the A-list event comes on the heels of her 17-year-old daughter Matilda Ledger being spotted in New York City.

Sightings of Matilda – the only child of the late Heath Ledger – are exceedingly rare, as Michelle has worked hard to keep her daughter out of the limelight.

With not a hair out of place in her short blonde bob, Michelle walked the red carpet in elegant beige heels and carried a cream colored clutch.

Her ethereal features and fair skin were accentuated by soft make-up and a delicate blush adorned her lips.

Michelle attended the event solo, but has been married to theater director Thomas Kail since 2020.

The couple shares a three-year-old son named Hart and recently welcomed another baby over the summer.

Kail was out with Michelle and her daughter Matilda when the family was recently spotted in New York City.

Michelle dated Heath Ledger for three years before breaking up in 2007 – four months before he tragically died of an accidental overdose.

Williams quickly left life in Brooklyn for a quiet rural life in upstate New York, escaping the “morbid cult” of paparazzi that overtook her and Matilda in the wake of Ledger’s death.

“It was unmanageable to be stalked like that every moment of the day,” Williams told Vanity Fair in 2018. “So I left, in a desire to create a healthy home environment.”

Reflecting on that nightmarish time, the Venom star said, “I’ll never forget going to the post office and seeing a sign on the wall for anyone with information about myself and my daughter to call this number.”

Williams went on to talk about her anxiety around that rough patch, adding, “When you’re a single parent and you’re missing that element of breadwinner and protection, it’s scary.”

Years later, Williams quietly returned to her beloved Brooklyn and bought a home for her growing family.

Both Michelle and Matilda are very private about their private lives and neither of them has a social media presence.

Earlier this month, Michelle spoke about finding “balance” between movies and motherhood when she shared an insight into raising Matilda and her other two children.

The My Week with Marilyn star told Entertainment Weekly that kids “have to come and they have to be supported, everything.”

“So I’m constantly searching,” she added, “because balance isn’t a stable place.” Balance means that you are always making adjustments.’
