Marion Cotillard In Zuhair Murad Couture - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

When I saw Marion Cotillard on the red carpet this evening for the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, my first reaction was, “the spell is broken”.

Childish I know, but I’m excited to finally see her in something other than Dior and especially Zuhair Murad Couture.

Her Fall 2012 black lace A-line dress featuring floral beaded appliqué and an open back is the most playful I’ve seen Marion in a long time.

I’m sure you will agree that her spark, that many of us were missing, is finally back.

As you would expect from Marion, her styling was impeccable with nude accessories including Jimmy Choo ‘Tahi’ sandals plus she dazzled in Chopard jewels.

A side parted bun and neutral makeup completed her look.

Needless to say she is my favourite so far.
