Busy Philipps just gave Michelle Williams a pretty amazing birthday gift that took #FriendshipGoals to the next level. Philipps, who is in Boston shooting I Feel Pretty with Amy Shumer, Aidy Bryant, and, of course, Williams, posted an image of herself, alone, wearing a black leather jacket that sported half of a heart and the letters “BE FRI.”
Her follow-up post revealed her “other half” and the other part of the message, and a sweet birthday message. The jackets, when side by side, make a heart and the words Best Friends — just like a friendship necklace or bracelet from grade school, only this jacket is a little bit more expensive.
OK, a lot more expensive. The Veda Jayne Best Friends jacket retails at Shopbop for $1,320, and that’s just for one. The pair will run you a whopping $2,640. There’s also a $285 jean-jacket version on the site if you have a friendship you’d like to celebrate in style. Or head to your middle-school favorite Claire’s and get a cute necklace version for about $12.
Williams, who was most recently nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Manchester by the Sea, attends most of her major red carpet appearances with Philipps. The duo are filming in Boston, and by the looks of Philipps’s Instagram, are having a great time in the city (have some lobster rolls for us, please!).
Williams told the press at the 2017 Golden Globes: “I’m here with my best friend. I’m so in love with her. She’s proof that the love of your life does not have to be a man! That’s the love of my life right there.”
Their devotion to each other is not only admirable, but also serves as a reminder that a committed platonic friendship can play just as vital a role in life as one’s spouse or romantic partner.
