Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior & Chloé – Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior & Chloé - Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala

After wearing Christian Dior nearly exclusively for her recent ‘Rust and Bone’ promo tour, Marion Cotillard found another occasion to showcase the designer at yesterday’s Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala at the Hotel de la Marine in Paris, France.

While it may be no surprise that the actress donned Dior for this ocean-conservation fundraiser, what was more unexpected was her mannish approach this time.

Her Fall 2013 ensemble, featuring the signature houndstooth check, lost some of its runway attraction when paired with the petrol-blue ‘Santorini’ collarless blazer by Chloé. The cool edge of the razor-sharp jacket was compromised, and Dior almost unbelievably turned into a day-at-the-office look.

She had a Miss Dior bag on her shoulder, but even that couldn’t make up for her lacklustre black shoe. I desperately missed the black-and-white stiletto seen on the model, though I’m glad Marion opted for a similarly bold fuchsia lippie.

You may remember that Katie Holmes also wore this Chloé piece earlier this year in New York City, and I actually liked her interpretation slightly better.

    On the runway, the houndstooth top was much longer. I wish she just worn it as a dress. It’s the pants that bugging me. But I still love this look. Still chic for me. :)

    I wished she wore the dior shoes with this look. To give it some funk.

      Yes! Those shoes are great.

      I agree.

    It’s almost perfect until I see the shoes….gorgeous everything except the shoes…

      I agree.. Love everything except for those hideous shoes.

    I like this from head to ankles. I dislike the shoes, so much. Ugly, heavy, unflattering.

    She definitely should’ve worn the runway shoes, I don’t like the shoes she’s wearing. But from the ankles up, she looks amazing.

    Everything just went wrong here. Thumbs down from me.

    I like the blazer over the top. But I don’t like the pants or shoes. Or the bag.

    I think it would totally work for her if she stuck with the same outfit as the model on the runway
