Mélanie Laurent attended the ‘Touch of the Light’ premiere during the 2012 Marrakech Film Festival on Friday.

The French actress ventured on a limb wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture dress-over-pants combo.

The neo-New Look pieces by newly minted Dior couturier Raf Simons have been popular among the Hollywood set this season, especially Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence.

Mélanie’s sly charm works well with the outfit’s winking nod to both uber-feminine midcentury eveningwear and the gender-bending YSL Le Smokings that followed a decade later.

However, the spare soigné of the navy and black ensemble is thrown off by Mélanie’s limp, crimpy hair, heavy eye makeup, and time-for-a-touch-up dark roots.

Had she booked a last-minute appointment at the colourist and stayed at the salon long enough for someone to wrap her hair into a neat top knot, this could’ve been a hit.

You may remember that Ruth Wilson wore a similar Dior Couture to Mélanie’s just last week.
