Making for another moment to remember forever, Michelle Williams had a triumphant experience at the 2012 Film Independent's Spirit Awards on Saturday afternoon (February 25).

Taking to the Santa Monica beach venue, the 31-year-old actress looked gorgeous in Louis Vuitton as she spent time with Busy Philipps on the purple carpet ahead of the annual beachfront event.

During the festivities, Miss Williams ended up being doted with Best Female Lead honors for her work as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week with Marilyn".

Offering up a heartfelt speech, Michelle thanked the "roomful of misfits, dropouts, loners ... like me" for selecting her as the prestigious winner.

The 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards will air at 10:00 ET on IFC with Seth Rogen handling the hosting duties.
