Marion Cotillard made a long awaited return to the red carpet at the “Contagion” Premiere held in New York last night.

The French actress chose a gorgeous nude and black Christian Dior Fall 2011 dress which features sparkly embellishments on the bodice and on the lace skirt.

Marion didn’t add any additional accessories to her look.

She styled her hair in a braided up-do, which I feel was the wrong choice. It doesn’t complement the elegant vibe of the dress at all.

Her makeup, which featured smoky brown eyes and pink lips was perfect though.
