Brand Ambassador of the Year 2013 – Marion Cotillard for Christian Dior

Brand Ambassador of the Year - Marion Cotillard for Christian Dior

French star Marion Cotillard was Christian Dior most lavish representative, with a grand sum of 19 looks to her name over the past 12 months.

The face of Lady Dior, she wears the brand well, gracefully balancing designer Raf Simons’ sophisticated yet still-edgy offerings. Not that she didn’t have competition in the category, with Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence also working the Dior angle—sometimes more successfully than others.

That said, Marion started the year off with a bang, cementing an early spot on the best-dressed list with her risk-taking, citron-yellow couture gown at the 2013 BAFTA Awards that was breathtakingly bold and thereby unforgettable.

More Dior moments at the Met Gala, the Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival soon followed, with the actress later wrapping up her 2013 designer run at the Marrekech Film Festival.

Rather regrettably for this year’s Dior-Marion match, she wavered as a pristine style steward of the brand, also landing the unfortunate award of Magnifique to Tragique 2013.

    My favorite is her SAG look!

    That is a whole lot of Dior! Unfortunately there is not much here that I like but props to her for the variety and loyalty.

    I disliked more than half of these looks.

    I’m sorry but there were far too many misses for Marion to be the best brand ambassador.

      By best it means she wore the most looks by that brand.

      The award doesn’t even say “BEST brand ambassador”, just “Brand Ambassador” – which I thought was a smart move because yes, she wore the most Dior looks, but not the best ones.

    The best was her BAFTA Awards look.

    ONE WORD: Disaster.

    My favorite look is the white gown she wore in Cannes. My second favorite is the yellow gown she wore to the Baftas, and third is the SAG awards look. The worst is the striped one.

    A few great, many so-so, and several terrible.

    It’s time to work with new brands, Marion.

    Good mercy! This contract needs to end.

    Soo, I’m wondering who the runner-up was. Mostly because I can’t remember who I voted for. It may have been Marion, because I love her, but then again, she’s had a rough time of it this year, Dior-wise. Especially lately! I honestly can’t remember who else was in this category, other than the other Dior girls, of course. ???

    In this post, we can see clearly the Magnifique to Tragique

  12. Alina December 23, 2013 at 20:05 #

    Her Dior looks alternate from good to acceptable to bad to tragic. It’s sad.

    • Serenity December 23, 2013 at 20:14 #

      This got me thinking, Alina. You’re right! I count 1 that is great, 8 that are very good, 6 that are acceptable, and 4 that are, indeed, tragique.

      What does everyone else think?
