Oscar winner, Marion Cotillard wore this mermaid-esqe Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2008 Couture gown to the Oscars on Sunday night, which appeared on many Best Dressed list including mine.

Only she could pulled off this amazing mermaid-style gown, which was custom-made for her. Thank god she did not choose the runway version, as I don’t think it would have made the same impact.

It’s was the second red-carpet event in a fortnight that not only did Marion Cotillard win the Best Actress award, but also the second time she opted for a pale shade.

At the BAFTA’s she shined in a fabulous ivory and silver embellished Chanel Fall 2007 Couture dress.

Marion has been supporting French designers by wearing Jean Paul Gaultier to the Cesar Film Awards, Nina Ricci to the SAG Awards and Chanel to the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards and to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards.

Hopefully it won’t be long before we see her a YSL, Christian Lacroix or Balenciaga creation. I am sure they are queuing up to offer her their clothes.

Has a style icon is born? No she has been an icon for a while, it’s only now that everyone has noticed.
