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.
