Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – ‘Rust and Bone’ AFI Fest Premiere

Marion Cotillard’s next stop on her promo tour for her latest movie was Grauman’s Chinese Theatre where she attended the premiere for ‘Rust and Bone’ during the 2012 AFI Fest in Hollywood, California, last night.

The actress has been wearing a lot of black Dior dresses lately. On this occasion it was cream-and-black.

Her halter-style dress with a draped skirt with a central split revealing a shorter shirt might not have been your first pick for Marion, but for me it’s a lot more interesting and playful than her previous Dior looks which became samey to say the least.

This look shows a lot more personality and the sparkle I was missing has returned.

Marion’s favoured rolled-and-pinned hairstyle was replaced with a chic updo on this occasion, as she opted for smoky eyes and a nude lip colour.

Chopard jewels and black Dior criss-cross sandals completed her look.

Yay or nay?

    anyone know what season this dress is from?

  2. Mickey November 8, 2012 at 00:22 #

    This is so gorgeous! Not many would be able to pull this off, but she does it beautifully. 🙂

    this looks like a less exciting version of Emilia Clarke’s Chanel dress (Emmys).
    Anyway she looks nice

      Mhm, must agree. Can’t say I love the dress or styling. Don’t like how short the black skirt is. I really did not think this dress was Dior on first glance.

  4. Jess2 November 7, 2012 at 13:43 #

    A definite YAY from me! I am so in love with this look! BDOTW without a doubt.

  5. Noemi November 7, 2012 at 08:13 #

    YAY!! (Sorry, I used capitol letters).

  6. Pene November 7, 2012 at 07:23 #

    I love love love. She exudes elegance in Christian Dior

  7. NooG November 7, 2012 at 03:01 #

    Please put this on the BDOTW list – everything about the look is stunning! 😀

  8. Natalie November 7, 2012 at 02:55 #

    a big, fat YES

  9. Azur November 7, 2012 at 02:25 #

    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I love this look

  10. TeaAtTwo November 6, 2012 at 23:06 #

    While she does look full of life the dress is horrible.

    I completely love this look, her hair and face look so beautiful and the dress looks really interesting on her. I agree, look of the week, she is stunning.

  14. Lyvm November 6, 2012 at 18:29 #

    Freakin love this. Look of the week.

  15. Kathy November 6, 2012 at 18:18 #

    The updo makes it look like she chopped off her hair from the front. What a shame…it has too much of an androgynous feel and takes the outfit, which wasn’t spectacular to begin with, down another notch. Nice shoes though.

  16. Pedro November 6, 2012 at 18:11 #


    She looks amazing!

    BDOTW for sure

  17. Mia November 6, 2012 at 18:05 #

    Amazing! This is BDOTW in my eyes!

  18. Sara November 6, 2012 at 16:47 #

    I think she looks absolutely beautiful. The bottom of the dress isn’t my favorite, but when you look that good, who cares? And I really like the shoes 🙂

  19. ash November 6, 2012 at 16:23 #

    I think overall, she looks good, but the first time I saw the dress, my reaction was, “that is such a weird Dior dress”.

  20. Cass November 6, 2012 at 16:11 #


  21. LizLemoooon November 6, 2012 at 16:07 #

    I don’t care what she wears, I think she’s absolutely delightful either way but I do agree FC that this is one of the better looks she’s worn recently.

  22. Chloe November 6, 2012 at 15:43 #

    I love it, but it reminds me a bit of Emilia Clarke’s Emmy dress. Stunning nonetheless

  23. rebecca November 6, 2012 at 15:06 #

    i LOVE it!

  24. Joel November 6, 2012 at 14:50 #


  25. Rafael November 6, 2012 at 13:59 #

    Thank God for this… I was starting to get really bored by Marion, but this is more like it. It’s modern and playful but very chic and sophisticated at the same time. Love it

  26. fromchi-town November 6, 2012 at 13:56 #

    Love love love it!! Haven’t been excited by her red carpet style lately – but here she looks great!! BDOTW ?

  27. EmmaWoodhouse November 6, 2012 at 13:43 #

    I really dislike this dress. It combines so many things I dislike…but why do I like it on Marion? Haha

  28. dee November 6, 2012 at 13:43 #

    It’s a yay for me. She looks very chic.

  29. Jessica Morris November 6, 2012 at 13:41 #

    Stunning dress!

  30. Pablo November 6, 2012 at 13:33 #

    I’m surprised to be liking this, but i do! She looks chic! Is this custom?

  31. Ancika November 6, 2012 at 13:19 #

    Yay!!! Playful, edgy and seductive Marion!

  32. Yeliz November 6, 2012 at 13:13 #

    Yay yay yay! I love everything about this look. BDOTW worthy for me.

    • Nat39 November 6, 2012 at 18:35 #

      BIG YES (!!!) from me too. BDOTW worthy, agree.

  33. Monica B November 6, 2012 at 13:09 #

    I love it!!!

  34. Christine November 6, 2012 at 13:00 #

    Love this fun look. She is showing variety in her dress choices. She looks good!

  35. Emmeline November 6, 2012 at 12:53 #

    Absolutely yay for me!

    IMO, this is the best she’s looked in a long time. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of dresses with central splits, but I absolutely adore this one on Marion. She’s definitely one of my BDOTW.

    • Kaz November 7, 2012 at 09:46 #


      Massive YAY for me!

  36. lu November 6, 2012 at 12:50 #

    yay. I really like it.

  37. Rebecca Z November 6, 2012 at 12:40 #

    Not a fan of this type of dress, but I love her from the waist up. Gorgeous hair and makeup and I love the top half of the dress. I have to say that her scrunched shoulders are a distraction.

    • Moxie November 6, 2012 at 15:42 #

      +1 I am not a fan of these apron dresses that keep appearing on the red carpet.

  38. phillippa duncan November 6, 2012 at 12:24 #

    so Yay!

  39. LeeAnn November 6, 2012 at 12:17 #

    I am cold just looking at her. I really do not like this at all

  40. Ramsay November 6, 2012 at 12:02 #

    I think she looks great – this dress is interesting and flatters her body – i also think a dark make-up works best on her – I do however wish she was mixing it up a little, wearing Dior but also other designers – but again she is very beautiful here

  41. Shievar A. Olegario November 6, 2012 at 11:50 #


  42. Rash November 6, 2012 at 11:44 #

    A big Yayyyyy !!! If someone can carry this look to the hilt, its Marion. Glad she came out of the similar dresses zone.

  43. stefan November 6, 2012 at 11:43 #

    She looks stunning, the outfit works on so many levels!

  44. Nat November 6, 2012 at 11:36 #

    It manages to be both classical and modern/on trend.
    Plus, her makeup is great.

  45. bas November 6, 2012 at 11:31 #

    It’s been a while since I had this WOW factor from her. She looks gorgeous!

  46. robbie November 6, 2012 at 11:26 #

    dont like a single thing about this look.

    • tiffany November 6, 2012 at 22:25 #

      +1 Tell it! There aren’t enough NAYs in the world for this.
