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.
